The sign of the bull can be stubborn, but in this sign, we learn how to slow down and make decisions that last. Entering Taurus season, it feels like all your senses are alive. We experience awakened sensuality—with a desire to touch, see, taste, and feel everything. So when the sky goes dark under this new moon, it teaches us how to use our other senses for both perception and pleasure. Pluto spends about half the year in retrograde, and it serves as a lesson in letting go.

Ruler of the underworld, Pluto retrograde challenges us to look at our lives and cut out the things that no longer serve us. A Scorpio full moon is a particularly intense lunation, bringing up themes of sex, death, and transformation. Instead of feeling intimated by its light, try making friends with your dark side and invite it into the light, where things seem a little less frightening. Saturn is the planet associated with karmic debts, so if there is any unfinished business out there, now is the time to resolve it.
During Saturn retrograde you might feel sluggish, unproductive, or out of balance. This is a difficult time to form new routines or patterns, but it is helpful to examine our old habits and experiment with alternatives that could serve us better. Learn from them to avoid making the same mistakes again.
Venus is the planet of love, beauty, and money. During Venus retrograde, we have the opportunity to rethink what those things mean in our lives, and how we can invite them into our lives in new and satisfying ways. This can be a difficult time to maintain relationships, but honesty and vulnerability will serve you well here.
Jupiter is the planet of expansion, luck, and optimism.

With both Saturn and Pluto, the power players of our solar system in Capricorn, the structures of our world that need the greatest transformations could also be the ones that become or remain the least open to change. An overemphasis of Saturnian energy, when distorted, promotes regression, repression, and traditionalism. With the rhetoric of fear, exclusion, and domination easily spreadable under these skies, we must work with both our internal and external landscapes in order to implement change. What is poisonous must go through a purging process.
The solution to any external difficulty is, in part, to face the same within the self. It is the place from which we always have access and power. Working to understand, and then disrupt, our internal systems of inequity helps us to do so externally. Getting to know our inner critic well enough to interrupt the self-denial that keeps our souls, and our societies, undernourished is transformation from the inside out.
