Today as Pluto ♇ moves into retrograde in Capricorn ♑ until Oct 3, you’ll notice yourself becoming a gardener in your union and your life. The energies of the last two weeks were heightened and the cosmic movements were plentiful, but after all that hoopla, the party is over for the moment. Some of you, with an emphasis on Scorpio ♏ and Capricorn ♑ natives, may be feeling this hard.

When it comes to your union, this means that while you have recently launched forward, the energies of growing those seedlings will slow down. Don’t expect huge transformations, as everything takes time to grow. The energies between the counterparts have balanced and things will go back to plodding along after this highly exciting time.


If you are a gardener, you may love the hobby because there is only so much you can do before hitting a stopping point. Gardening is very much do X at the right time, when the seasons are profitable for that task, and then wait. Then do Y at the right time, when the seasons or the plant are profitable for that task, and then wait.

Along the way, you are observing the weather, the plant, the soil, and the results of your efforts (like watering the plant) to decide what to do next. Gardening is deeply intuitive, and you are adjusting and experimenting as you go. The reminder of this is in the card My Presence is My Power—stay present and consistent to the day-to-day tasks and you will easily succeed with flow and grace!

The deeper explanation for why you may be experiencing a slowdown is that the universe used a period of stagnation to build tension, much like pulling back on an arrow. This allowed your union to slingshot forward into the next phase. And for a time, it will coast along on that additional force, much like a merry-go-round that has been given a hard push.

But the DM and DF are now charged with picking up the baton. You have your seedling, now it’s time to put in the hard work to grow the seedling into something that can be harvested.


The DM will be proud of himself for coming forward (or being dragged forward). But he’ll soon realize it’s not a one-time effort. It’s an ongoing effort, and his DF is not going to settle for the pittance of energy and attention he’s given her in the past.

The DF feels like she’s done so much work to get to this point. But she soon realizes that the work is just beginning. It’s much like the work of being pregnant—you’ve finally given birth to the baby, but now the real work starts!

It’s very important to understand what’s going on. It’s not a slowdown and it’s certainly not a reversion to the previous phase. But it’s also not the full vision come true—that will take lots of time, energy, hard work, and nurturing.

Capricorn is a steady and stable energy that can be an incredible container for long-term transformation. Utilize this energy to take the slow but steady approach to growing your seedling(s). Remember, what you do every day matters more than what you do every once in awhile.

The card “When I move my body, I bust through all that blocks me from my true health and vitality” holds a special message for divine masculines. Although movement may feel slow, it is not the time to stop moving forward. Again, a little movement every day will keep the union healthy. Now is not the time to take a step back or ignore and catch up later—consistency is critical and slow movement over large areas is needed at this time.

There is another message that some of the counterparts may feel exhausted by the thought of more work, having already done so much work to get to this point. The message is, don’t get overwhelmed, but rather take it day by day and find the joy in doing the work needed. It doesn’t have to be hard. Remember, the toughest part of gardening is getting the seed to sprout. After that, consistent attention, sunlight, and water is usually all it takes to keep a plant going.

This will seem more manageable when you realize that this seedling is a part of you and the changes you’ve made through healing. You are a new person with a greater capacity to nurture each of the seedlings you planted. Like a mother who instinctively knows how to take care of her child, you have been preparing for these seedlings for a long time. It won’t feel like work, not like it might have six months ago if you received these seedlings then. This is thanks to your healing, so congratulate yourself on completing that phase of your journey and moving on to the next cycle, with both more responsibility and more rewards!

If you are still struggling with the slowdown of this new cycle, just breathe. “In the midst of a meltdown, I breathe through the discomfort and come out on the other side.” If you can stay calm, this time will pass with ease and beauty. Take the opportunity to sink in slowly—there is no need to rush ahead and you are meant to enjoy this beautiful phase!
