Grab a cup of tea or coffee (oh what the heck, get a danish too!) and sit a spell. You might want to grab your notebook and pen because you never know when you will be inspired to write down a quote, or jot down a poem of your own. Words are like that, they take you on a journey and the next thing you know you are breathing life into your own magical world of words.

Pluto in Retrograde - Increasing Your Creativity

Pluto is all about the Underworld and working with shadow and our fears: transforming them to emerge authentically empowered. Working with this shadow timing can greatly increase your creativity.

Do you know that Pluto went into Retrograde on Saturday and will be there for the next five and a half months? 

You can look at it as an, "Oh great, I am not coming out of my room until it goes direct!" time or you can look at it as an opportunity. 

If you choose to consciously work with shadow energies you open the door to profound transformation. 

Let's take a look at how you can do this. I would begin by getting yourself a small notebook that you can carry around with you.  Every time you feel fear jot down in your notebook the date and time and ask yourself these questions:
  • Where did you feel it in your body?
  • What happened that precipitated the fear?
  • How did you respond to the fear?
  • When you look back into your past, where do you see something like this happening before?
  • Can you remember the first time you felt this fear?
  • Is this a fear that actually threatens your survival or is it a body memory of a time when you were too young to protect yourself?
When you are finished asking yourself these questions take a look at how you are feeling in the current moment. Bringing the fear into the light sometimes can create an automatic lessoning of the fear.  If it doesn't you may need to do a clearing around it.  I suggest that you do some type of clearing work for each fear and then either dancing in or calling in positive energy that you wish to replace it with.  It doesn't have to take a long time to do any of these pieces it just depends on how deep you want to take each one.

To actively work with it, instead of waiting for a fear to come up, would be to sit down and ask yourself what you are afraid of and then proceed with the above questions. 

At the end of the five and a half months you can take a look at your notebook and see all that you have worked with and cleared.  I suggest creating a living ceremony to fully transform, emerging into your Divine Essence. You can see an example of living ceremony in my article, How to Forgive Yourself and Others Through Living Ceremony.  One way to fully let go and emerge is to burn the notebook during your living ceremony.

As you move through transformation some of what came up to be cleared most likely also revolved around creativity.  Allow yourself to look at the types of things you liked to create as a child. Write down three to five things that you once liked to create as a child and pick one to explore every week for the next three to five weeks.  Have fun with it.  Approach it as a child would with fascination and wonder. Put your critic aside. Allow your creativity to grow.

May you choose to walk consciously on your path, walking through the open doors with a loving heart and much compassion for yourself and others.


  1. This is quite timely for me, Morgen. Yesterday afternoon I experienced a couple of hours of near-panic attacks, and was wondering what the hell was going on.


    1. I am glad you found this helpful Julia! Hope your near-panic attacks ease off.



Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
