Uranus Retrograde in Taurus

Uranus Retrograde in Taurus

Uranus in Taurus goes retrograde on 7 August 2018 to stay out of action for 5 months, all the way until 6 January 2019. Uranus is the planet of the unexpected! It symbolises progress, liberation and sudden change. When Uranus goes retrograde, it's an opportunity to adjust to such developments and embrace changes more consciously in your life. The crazy merry-go-round momentarily stops and you're no longer blindsided by events. Uranus' station is a tense, dizzying moment as you hang there in mid-air... Soon enough, you get your bearings and from this new vantage point you can decide to accept some changes and discard others. You’ll be ready to move forward into a ‘new normal’ come January next year.

Outer planet Uranus works it's magic by giving you electric shocks to wake you up from your stupor. When Uranus goes retrograde (once a year) you say "enough with the taser gun already! I'm ready for change. I'm ready to cooperate with the Universe!" And so you are.

2018-2019 Uranus from Taurus to Aries and back again...

This year’s Uranus retrograde is doubly important because Uranus changes signs, twice! During its retrograde motion, Uranus will move back into Aries on 6 November 2018, as he’s got some loose ends to tidy up over there. Once done he’ll move full speed ahead back into Taurus on 6 March 2019, this time to stay there for good (or until 2026). Chances are, you were caught by surprise when Uranus first entered Taurus in May 2018. As Uranus backtracks into Aries now, you’ll have a chance to finalise any last minute changes that were left pending in all the madness and make the mental shift necessary to embrace new developments that occurred since May.

At the very least, you’ve stopped thinking along the same old lines when it comes to your career, your overall direction and your role in life. Did you think of yourself of the dutiful spouse?

Uranus in Taurus since May 2018 has made sock-waves in your intimate relationships and your finances, dear Libra. Sudden events - a windfall, crisis or betrayal - might have forced you to create some unusual bonds or even pushed you and a loved one apart. If you’re pretty shaken by the whole affair, it’s time to catch your breath and decide how you want to proceed from here. This is also a good time to reconsider a division of property, a loan or investment. November to March 2019 might bring one final relationship surprise. This could see people leave your life or even liberate you from a contract, a partner or an enemy - or even from your own attitude toward others - so you can enter a new phase in your relationships.
