URANUS IN TAURUS RETROGRADE MEANING
With Uranus transits, we are given a choice: change or die. What Uranus threatens us with is not physical death, but a creative, soul-level rebirth. It creates a felling surrounding an inability to thrive that, if allowed to settle within, would rot us from the inside out.
Without Uranus’ upending ways, many of us would nestle deep into our most familiar ruts and never look back, comfortable in our ambivalence. Uranus pushes us past the comfort zone, and a little further stil to make sure that we can’t go back to a way of living that we have outgrown—it is at these boundaries, somewhere between order and abject chaos, where genius and creativity thrive.
Sudden and shocking events can still occur while Uranus is retrograde, but because this will be the second time that Uranus is impacting eleven to six degrees of Taurus in your natal chart, it’s likely that you’ve already been sensing or experiencing these shifts in the topics being set off by Uranus. As a result, while Uranus is retrograde, there can be an increased drive to more fully establish yourself in whatever new direction you’ve already been inspired to take.
Uranus retrograde will be especially active in the second half of October, as yet another retrograde, Mercury in Scorpio, will form an opposition with Uranus retrograde on October 19, followed by a full moon in Taurus on October 31 that will conjoin Uranus.
The full moon on October 31 is especially potent due to its occurrence at the midpoint of Uranus retrograde when this planet forms an opposition with the sun. So expect by this time frame to receive important revelations that will provide key guidance regarding further changes you’ll need to make during the second half of Uranus retrograde.
THE EFFECTS OF A URANUS RETROGRADE: BREAKDOWNS & BREAKTHROUGHS
The whole point of any transit is about a seasonal change to introduce to growth at every level and the way that we properly express ourselves individually.
Uranus acts as an awakener, prodding us to face those things which we may intuitively know already but struggle to confront. These wake-up calls, which are often brutally timed, may force us to let go of parts of our ego-identities which are in danger of suffocating our entire growth system. Personally and as a whole.
The urge to transform our reality that is produced by Uranus transits is best re-examined during the Uranus retrogrades, when we may have better objectivity, and a cooler, more even-keeled approach. During Uranus retrogrades, the volatile pace and pitch of Uranus’ energy is halted, dulled, and brought to a manageable level, so that we may finally find a way to focus its brilliance and make use of it.
If Uranus was a person, it would be a restless activist, constantly pushing us out of the comfort zone and into what can be sometimes uncomfortable, but necessary changes.
