See How Pluto Retrograde Will Affect Your Love Life Based On Your Sun Sign
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
You're raising your vibrations and cutting away the spiritual bullsh*t right now, Aries, so expect to reevaluate your current or potential future partnerships to be sure they jive with your current transformations. “Time to review and reflect, this retrograde will strip down your ego and reconfigure your views on your legacy and place in society,” explains Toribio. “And maybe you’ll drop someone who doesn’t meet your redefining standard, try to fix it, or place yourself to attract people who will match it
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Putting yourself out there is a must during this retrograde, Taurus, so get cuted up and ready to flirt, or just be more vocal and experimental in your current partnership. Your inner-self is ready to explore what your boundaries are, really focus on your needs, and be willing to go out there and see who might be able to meet you on your level, and it can be a fun adventure. “Explore, explore, explore! Pluto retrograde will break open and expand your standard in romance,” says Toribio. “[B]e open to more romantic exploration, and reconfigure beliefs on love.”
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Love is complicated, and you have some healing to do. “Get ready as Pluto opens the gates of Hell,” warns Toribio. Yikes. Prepare to dive in deep to explore the parts of yourself that connect you with others. “Pluto retrograde will shine more light on the deepest part of yourself and bring forward energy that will (figuratively) kill you,” Toribio explains. “This is a moment where you will transform yourself (ego). Everything should be fine but remember to be open to love when you see it, and let go of whatever doesn’t serve you.”
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
This is a shedding of the stale, and a welcoming of the new when it comes to romantic energy in your life, Cancer. “Pluto will directly kill off any bad relationships, [and] give birth to new relationships,” shares Toribio. “Most importantly transforming your relationship of who you are when it comes to one-on-one relationships.” There's a paradigm shift taking place. You've taken a lot of sh*t, and you don't want to do that anymore, do you? Your standards and boundaries are becoming firmer.
Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22)
Best advice for Pluto Rx? Just be yourself. It's due time you cut away the less-authentic fluff that you think you have to embellish your personality with. Your partner should like you for your true self, not your ego-driven self. “Don’t be afraid to tap into that fabulous swagger and confidence Leo’s are known for,” advises Watt. “Love will literally be around every corner, and you’re likely to run into a crush or two during your daily routines.” If you're single, it will be easy to find love — and if not, you'll probably notice a willingness to be more playful, open, and trusting with your current partner.
Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22)
Pluto retrograde marks a make-or-break moment (and by moment I mean five-month-period) when it comes to healing past relationships and finally gaining the closure you need. “Romantic connections from the past may get a second chance during this retrograde period,” explains Watt. “An old crush is likely to resurface, use this opportunity to make it work or get over them once and for all.” It's either a no, or it's taking up your energy — decide truthfully which resonates most with the authentic, non-ego parts of yourself and your current life trajectory.
Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22)
You have a tendency to enslave yourself to love — which is very lovely and sweet, but not if it's at the expense of your own well-being, goals, and desires. True value must come from within, not from others. “This retrograde may ask you to do some hard work, but it’s all in an effort to build up your confidence,” shares Watt. “Putting yourself out there isn’t always easy, however, stepping out of your comfort zone will remind you of your worth and show you what you’re truly capable of!” Challenge yourself to put yourself first.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)
Pluto retrograde wants to crack you open and force the light into all your shadows, Scorpio, so although this isn't your favorite way to feel, you should get ready to get vulnerable. “Scorpios are notorious for being emotionally guarded as a defense against deception,” explains Watt. “However, this retrograde is all about becoming more emotionally open and letting go of issues around trust.” It's OK to open up your heart sometimes — most people don't aim to hurt; rather, they just want to relate to you.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)
Power dynamics are highlighted over the coming months, and it's going to force you to look at your habits and the current status quo in your relationship of the moment. “Be sure to stand in your power when it comes to your relationship,” advises Stardust. “Don’t let your partner manipulate your emotions — or vice-versa.” How much have you (or your partners) had to put up with when it comes to power imbalances? Do whatever it takes to even the playing field, even if it means moving on.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)
Pluto retrograde can make you feel forlorn or unseen, Cap, and while this isn't a good feeling, it's also a temporary one. “You may feel overlooked at this time by a romantic interest,” explains Stardust. “Don’t despair, you will be seen and loved in due time. Focus your energies on healing, rather than love.” It's super important to focus on the fact that your intrinsic value as a person has nothing to do with what other people think about you. Now is a time to explore the parts of yourself that you don't feel like you love, and turn them into roses.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)
No Aquarius wants to be held down, but how existential is this need for speed? And is it merely a defense mechanism, keeping you from exploring parts of yourself that make you feel vulnerable and afraid? “Squashing fears around commitments will prove challenging,” explains Stardust, “but you can overcome your fears with perseverance and determination.” You've got the strength inside to work through these issues. Emotions can hurt us, yes, but they can also bring us the greatest of pleasures.
Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20)
Signals can get confused when planets backspin, especially if you'd rather float downstream rather than pick up your feet. Keep your head on straight lest your emotions lead you astray. “You may develop a crush on a friend who is currently in a relationship with someone else,” explains Stardust. “Three’s a crowd, try to crush on someone who is available.” Now's not the time to meddle, but it is the time for you to clear the fog from your field of vision and analyze your love life from a higher perspective.
