Retrograde Season Begins – Reset Your Body System

Executive Contributor | Rev Joanne Angel BarryColon | Personal Development

Are you ready? Mercury kicks off Retrograde Season on April 21and it’s backward motion will last until May 14, 2023, in Taurus. Pluto follows, beginning its slow down on May 1st and continuing through October 11, 2023.

Mercury is known for communication, travel, schedules, planning, learning, teaching and technology, and is the ruler of Gemini. Expect hiccups in any of these areas of life during Mercury Retrograde.

Pluto is known for endings, death, regeneration and transformational rebirths, and is the ruler of Scorpio. Expect sudden shifts in life where things have been the same for a long time. 

Pluto will start its retrograde in Aquarius May 1st and will continue, spinning back into Capricorn June 11th through October 11th 2023 before regaining its forward momentum and returning to Aquarius January 22nd of 2024.

Aquarius is ruled by Uranus, the planet of Awakening, which I refer to as the mid-life crisis. Aquarius represents income, gains, wealth, abundance, humanity, visionary outlooks, and patience.

Capricorn is ruled by Saturn, the planet of foundations, boundaries and karmic reset. This sign represents success, fame, hard work, career, the soul’s calling and foundation.

In addition to Pluto’s retrograde, the Sun, Uranus, the North Node and Jupiter are all in the sign of Taurus, which is known for relationships with self, others, money, body and physical and material possessions.

The signs that will feel this Pluto retrograde the most are Taurus, Scorpio, Cancer, Capricorn, Leo, Aquarius and if you have Pluto in 2nd, 8th, 10th or 11th house you can also expect to feel it a bit more than those who don’t. 

Retrograde Cycles are known to helps us review, reflect, revisit, recharge, renew and recycle. 

During Pluto’s retrograde this time around, we can also draw upon the support of the Sun, Uranus, the North Node, Jupiter and the recent Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Scorpio of May 5th.The energy of this Lunar Eclipse will last until 2025, so this is a perfect time to let go of habits, beliefs and programming relating to the following:

• Body Weight

• Relationship with Food

• Relationship with your Body

• Cardio vs Strength Training

Knowing and understanding your personal natal chart’s placements for the planets, houses and signs relating to this retrograde cycle may give insight on how to reset your body system.

As an example, we’ll use my natal chart: For me, Pluto is in Virgo in the 3rd house. Mercury is in Aquarius in the 8th house and the Moon is in Aquarius in the 7th house. My 6th house is empty but is associated with Capricorn and my 11th house is empty and associated with Taurus and Gemini.

What this means is that during this retrograde season through 2025, this energy will help me reset how I connect with my body’s systems and create a new balance of fueling and movement. It will also help me find new ways to teach clients and other health and fitness professionals my own methodology to help them transform from the 3 Dimensional beliefs, habits and philosophies relating to strength training, cardio and nutrition, into the 5th Dimensional Frequencies of health and wellness. 

Although Pluto retrograde has just started, I am experiencing a lot of lessons to confirm this transformational rebirth. I am excited to share more with you regarding my upcoming plans to Wholistic Fitness Academy and invite you to join me. Stay tuned.
