Uranus Retrograde in Taurus August 2018

Heightened Insight
August 07 2018 until Jan 06 2019

 

Uranus Retrograde 2018 starts on August 7th, 2018 at 2° Taurus until January 6th, 2019 at 28° Aries.  Uranus retrograde in transit is a 155 day cycle in which the planet moves about four degrees backwards through the zodiac. This is a time of restructuring internally that allows you to express yourself better within your environment. Aspects that Uranus retrograde makes to your chart will give more detail about the type of change and the areas of life affected.

 Under this retrograde energy we are going to be clearing and wrapping up lessons from 2008, when Uranus first entered Aries. As Uranus travels out of Taurus and back into Aries, we will be given any final lessons or gifts, and we will be really encouraged to start a new chapter and a new cycle. After turning direct, Uranus in Taurus will present us with new themes and lessons for 2019.

 You may have anticipated a major change in your life or tried to initiate change but nothing has happened. In this case, transiting Uranus retrograde will induce the internal changes in attitude or behaviors which are necessary to make the desired change possible. Often the changes you seek are to allow more personal freedom.

Whatever the case, Uranus retrograde lets you process things internally before you manifest the external change once Uranus turns direct. Another possibility is that you have been disruptive and rebellious, trying to force radical change. 

Additionally, this means you should stay away from friends who can easily influence you into less-than-great behavior — because not only will you be easily swayed, but you'll also be more prone to outbursts of a not-so-great variety. Basically, Uranus Retrograde wants us to get real. It's time to face our fears and change the things that aren't working so we can become who we really want to be. This is true on both a personal and global scale. If you're in a bad relationship, stuck in a job you don't like, living in a place that doesn't feel right, or spending time with the wrong people, Uranus will alert you to this in coming months

The best response to a Uranian insight is to open your mind up and engage in a search for a new frame, a new context, a new order in which all the old pieces make sense, and the new ones also fit.  Uranus turns your head around—that’s what he’s for.  Embrace progressive, future-oriented ways of being and behaving.  You may feel trapped, stuck and itchy, but think carefully before you react, rebel or make a change you might regret.  Look for the way through the chaos and you’ll find that a whole new life is just around the corner—yours for the claiming.

Open mindedness and flexibility will lead to creative breakthroughs and a reinvigorated personal life. Whether your evolution is based on ignorance or the innocence of youth, Uranus retrograde will bring higher self-awareness and insights about the error of your ways. A period of less chaotic internal changes should follow.
