Pluto retrograde is upon us, and it begins today, May 1, in the sign of Aquarius. This retrograde will last until October 10, and during that time, it will move into the sign of Capricorn on June 11. That may sound like a lot of random info but I swear it'll make sense in a moment. This retrograde is occurring during an eclipse season, and it is happening during the midpoint of Mercury Retrograde. So, buckle up, it's going to be a wild ride!
