This has been an interesting summer of retrogrades. Jupiter went retrograde on June 20 and won’t go direct again till October 18. Neptune followed shortly after that on June 25 and will remain until December 10. We even had Chiron and Pallas Athene go retrograde in July! You would think that we’d had enough crazy retrograde energy flying around, but this month sees good old Uranus turning backward for quite a while as well. It goes retrograde on August 19 and lasts until January 18, 2022.
The Rebel Planet
As it is an outer planet, Uranus takes its own sweet time to completely move through the zodiac – a whopping 84 years and spends about seven years in each sign. Thanks to this slow-motion and distance, Uranus is considered a generational planet along with Neptune, Pluto, Sedna, and Quaoar. As Lisa Stardust stated, “Known as the “rebel” of planetary archetypes, Uranus is all about creating change, even if it comes with upheaval. When Uranus’ energy is active, the only thing we can count on is the element of surprise—our boundaries are tested, innovation reigns supreme, and the old is destroyed to make way for the new.”
The Meaning of Uranus
This particular retrograde
will occur when Uranus is in Taurus, creating issues with security, money,
stability, objects, and things you place value on. Uranus in Taurus often
creates a time of high tension, as Taurus’ energy is known for being stubborn
and Uranus is the bringer of forced change and yes, chaos.
The same day that Uranus goes
retrograde, the planet of change will form a trine with Mercury, giving you a
boost of inventive energy. This energy will help you find solutions to the
problems that have been causing blockages to your growth and path.
Uranus in the Birth Chart
Depending on where Uranus lands in your Natal or Birth Chart, this retrograde may have a different effect on you than on other people. If you’ve never had your Birth Chart done before, you can receive a complimentary one when you join our Karma Rewards program, and one of our expert Astrology Psychics can help interpret it for you.
If Uranus is in your First House, you like to be seen as independent but with the retrograde, you might find yourself wanting to be part of the pack. Learning to balance solitary time with social time could be a challenge during this retrograde.
Uranus in the Second House is usually found in those people who are freelancers, actors, or those that work on commission. For you, this retrograde may end up being a period where your paychecks are more regular than what you are used to. Make sure to save some for a rainy day.
The Third House describes
your relationship with your siblings and peers. You may need to pay closer
attention to what you say and how you say it during this retrograde period.
With Uranus retrograde in the Fourth House, you might find your homelife feeling a bit constricting and boring instead of its usual uniqueness.
Uranus in the Fifth House could have you reassessing your long-held and unusual opinions. Sometimes we need to take some time to review and challenge our perspectives.
With Uranus in the Sixth House, you might find yourself chafing against constant oversight. You thrive when you are given freedom and independence, so this will prove to be a difficult change.
Uranus in the Seventh House brings with it a need for independence, but for this cycle, you will most likely find comfort and pleasure in being around those that share your unique outlook on life. This is a great time to build a small, yet strong social circle.
This retrograde period will
have you taking a fresh look at what you consider taboo if Uranus is in your
Eighth House. You like to break the rules, but sometimes those rules change,
and it is important to know what they are now.
Rather than feeling the need
for wandering feet, Uranus retrograde in the Ninth House will have you
exploring closer to home as well as exploring yourself in deeper and meaningful
The Tenth House rules over your career tendencies and ambitions, even if you march to a different drummer. With the retrograde, however, you might find yourself needing to follow a more common and dependable schedule for your work life.
With Uranus retrograde in the Eleventh House, be ready for some issues with your friends and how you relate to them. Your long-term ambitions might also be put on hold during this time so that you can focus on more immediate needs.
And finally, for those with
Uranus in their Twelfth House, you may need to tone down your usual
eccentricity due to pressures from either your professional or personal life.
A Time of Learning
Wherever Uranus falls in your
chart, you must be ready for change, challenges, and even some conflict. However,
like with everything else in life, the lessons that you will learn are the
lessons that will help you grow in the future.
