The chart in this illustration shows the exact minute that Uranus turns retrograde, as it rewinds through Taurus from August 20th until mid-January 2022.
Uranus represents sudden events, change, upheaval, surprise and unpredictable circumstances. Basically, anything that gets thrown at you that you didn’t see coming! While Taurus is the sign that rules the exact opposite – structure, predictability and that lovely sense of certainty when you know exactly what to expect.
So, what happens when you combine these two cosmic forces and throw a retrograde into the mix?
Expect a clash of what Uranus and Taurus are all about. This relates to global events, governments and the royal family. However, it may also touch you personally, particularly if you have a planet around 10-14 degrees of Taurus, Scorpio, Leo or Aquarius in your birth chart.
You may feel torn between freedom vs stability, change vs the status quo or modern ways vs keeping with tradition, conventional methods vs unorthodox approaches.
Much of this has already been brewing because Uranus entered Taurus a few years back. But its retrogrades and slow planetary motion has meant that we’ve only dipped our toes into these subjects.
One thing is for sure, this cosmic duo questions your values, morals and the very foundations that you thought your world was built on.
My advice is to stay flexible and open-minded – and prepare for change with a capital “C”.
And remember that the Universe never throws anything at you that you can’t handle.
