It's satisfying to get visible results. When you make a change and there is concrete evidence it feels good. Everyone can see what you've been up to. This is what you get with Pluto's current transit through Capricorn: real world (Capricorn) transformation (Pluto).
Losing a significant amount of weight. Going into rehab. Renovating your house. Going from married to divorced, or vice versa. Getting a promotion at work. This is all Pluto in Capricorn stuff. If you've started a major overhaul in your life, chances are it's related to this transit.
On April 8th Pluto started moving backwards (retrograding) in Capricorn and won't go direct until September 2011. This can mean delays and frustrations with your make over project. Efforts stall, enthusiasm wanes or road blocks pop up. What good is this retrograde if all your hard work comes to a screeching halt? Well, no one said retrogrades were fun but they happen for a reason.
Pluto transformations are not lightweight. They require your complete dedication. They always involve a "death" of some kind, giving up an aspect of your life so something new can take its place. To make sure you're absolutely committed to this new path Pluto retrograde will throw some tests at you. The old ways may become very tempting again. You know by now what doesn't work and why but can you actually leave it behind? This is where you find out.
