Planets in retrograde are not spinning backwards – it is an optical illusion as seen from Earth due to the fact that planets travel at their own respective speeds around the sun. In astrology, this illusion manifests as a “backwards” functioning of the planetary roles. Click here to learn more about retrograde.
Uranus entered Taurus in 2018 for the first time since 1942 and will stay here until 2026. Uranus turns retrograde for five months every year. Now it’s time to review our Uranian lessons from the end of April 2020 onward. Taurus the bull represents home, money, and material resources. With Uranus in Taurus we are moving away from antiquated systems which exacerbate socioeconomic divisions. Uranus in Taurus has also manifested in movements like resistance to single-use plastic. Fossil fuel industries will likely collapse by 2026. The wise will invest in renewable energy or newly discovered (waste-free) resources.
Uranus is social and collective in nature. With Uranus Retrograde in Taurus, it is time to pool our capital. Wealth no longer belongs to the individual, but to the community. This is true also of cohabitation. We will live together more and more, sharing land and dwellings. With proper allocation, we have everything we need. Let’s reimagine what it means to be rich.
Retrograde cycles uproot jobs, relationships, perspectives and behaviors which have calcified over time and no longer represent our highest vibration / what we need / who we are. You may feel more restless during the coming months, but certainly not lost. New levels of conscious awareness are rapidly attained under such conditions. Uranus systematically peels everything away until we are independent badasses.
Uranus Retrograde lifts long-forgotten veils, dusty drapes concealing incendiary, insurrectionary spirits, oh how they pulse and quiver, how they line our veins and beg to be liberated. It is time to identify them, but not utilize them quite yet. During Uranus Retrograde we reexamine our rebel nature. When Uranus turns direct again, we set the newly hatched rebel free – when the subtle restraints and inhibitions of the retrograde have faded into the solid earth.
Ok here’s what we need to discuss: Uranus squaring Saturn in Aquarius next year on Feb 17, 2021 and again on June 14, 2021. I know it’s a long way out but it’s an incredibly important aspect. These junctures are very unusual because we have Saturn (a conservative planet) in a progressive sign (Aquarius) and Uranus (a progressive planet) in a conservative sign (Taurus). This will force us to confront issues of freedom with even more intensity. This square signals that it is time to redefine the rules. I have a feeling that it will put a ton of pressure on the for-profit prison-industrial complex in the US – aka modern slavery. Maybe we will have an abolitionist uprising with real independence and autonomy. These planets represent progress vs. tradition. Those who cling to tradition will be seriously challenged by those of us who are ready to move the fuck on with equity and justice. Uranus is also about innovation and technology, so there will definitely be breakthroughs in those sectors, but with lots of resistance – think controversial vaccines…
