Rewind! Uranus Retrograde, From Taurus Pastures Into Aries Fires…

Uranus Retrograde

It wasn’t so long ago that we were getting suped-up and excited for the move of Uranus into Taurus.

What? Now he’s backtracking??

That’s right Stargazers, on Wednesday 8th August Uranus will station (stop) retrograde (reverse) and begin to motion back towards Aries.

The sidewinder planet will reach the Ram’s constellation November 7th, appearing direct January 7th.

He will re-enter Taurus March 6th.

During the times when Uranus appears to ‘change direction’, we’re prone to experience issues related to the planet’s themes. Remember, Uranus rules the Internet, technology,

Uranus Retrograde, Dates:

  • August 8th 2018 – Uranus Retrograde In Taurus 2º34′
  • November 7th 2018 – Uranus Retrograde In Aries 29º59
  • January 7th 2019 – Uranus Appears Direct In Aries 28º37′
  • March 6th 2019 – Uranus Re-Enters Taurus 0º00′

On May 15th 2018, the planet of revolution and change moved into Taurus after spending about seven years in the previous sign on the Wheel of the Zodiac, Aries.

You can read much more about Uranus in Taurus here, but essentially this shift kicked off a period of gradual change in the spheres of life that Taurus rules – agriculture, earnings, finance and the material realms.

The next eight years are likely to see innovation and change for example in payment solutions and banking, progressive ideas around agriculture and food, and even radical developments in beauty, fashion and the way we indulge and experience life.

Uranus won’t move on from Taurus until 2025, but due to its current retrograde, it actually slides back into Aries for a brief visit starting November 7th, until early March 2019.

Although there are major changes underway on a collective level, Uranus might go unnoticed personally.

The four months that this planet spends in Aries might not even be a blip on your radar, or if you have planets in the last 2º of the Cardinal Signs or Fire Signs you might be radically affected! That’s because Uranus will spend his time at 28 and 29º Aries.

For those born in the final days of Aries, Cancer, Libra, or Capricorn season, Uranus’ transit may drum up tension, instability, and unexpected changes in your life, because this planet is creating a square aspect with your sun. For those born in the final days of Leo or Sagittarius season, this is a time when implementing changes could come easily!

So, this retrograde is offering is a glance back at what was going on just before Uranus moved into Taurus, which also coincided with a new moon in Taurus.

Therefore, this period might feel similar to what you were feeling last April or May. Think back to last spring for clues and expect them to come back around in March of 2019!
