URANUS RETROGRADE: Aug 07, 2018 – Jan 06 2019

URANUS – that earth-quaking sky-god and provocateur of general disruption to our linear mindstream has now joined MERCURY, MARS, SATURN, CHIRON, NEPTUNE AND PLUTO in retrograde.
That’s a lot (7) of energies relapsing, receding us to all kinds of past experiences, both consciously and unconsciously… drawing our minds to reflect on the last week, last month, last year, even hypnotically regressing us back to former lifetimes, conjuring vivid memories we may still be carrying over into this present incarnation.
We seem to be strangely revisiting a complex range of stories, specific events whose characters have in some ways affected us in meaningful ways. It’s up to us to understand how these stories still have a hold over our current lives, resolve any unfinished business and somehow, start to move the fuck on.
URANUS will stay retro until January 6, reversing back into Aries (Nov 7) where he spent the last 7 years. Let us refer to those as “The Selfie Years”, where gradually we all just disengaged from our real-life relationships and developed a digital relationship with a little black mirror and ‘the social-network’. Who needs a wifey when you have wifi, right?
Anyway, Uranus only entered into Taurus in May, and if we haven’t come down to earth already, we’re soon about to get our first taste of how shaky our financial and emotional security is going to be for the next few years. Naturally, this is going to make us more determined to find new, innovative ways to sustain ourselves, establish firmer footings, be more grounded in our dealings, maybe even look at taking better care of the earth and all the lovely resources we sorta, kinda, shoulda cared for… if we still have anything left caring for.
We all want to have our cake and eat it too, right? We all want to enjoy the safety and prosperity offered by the society, and still be free to do whatever the hell we fancy.  But does it work so easily? Can we have safety and freedom all at once? We need to look at areas where we’ve been burning the candles at both ends, biting off more than we can chew, leaving big gaping holes that can’t be filled with just thin polluted air… building an image of ourselves that, whilst impressive, has possibly formed on superficial premises, built upon hollow foundations, shaky pillars of vanity, shallow and narcissistic intentions.
That’s what this one last glance back in the Aries pool is going to be all about… So all the fakers better watchit. The universe will not support anything that won’t be backed by that innate Taurean sense of safety and long-lasting value.
Much is about to be exposed to us through this refrain. By early next year we will have become rudely awakened to the reckless folly (or sheer brilliance) of an living-for-this-moment ways. Though Uranus is currently squaring MARS, he will also remain in some opposition to VENUS (who is also about to do her retro dance) till the end of this year. This is strong indication that there will be further, serious effacement (or defacement) of our value systems/relationship dynamics, seeing sudden departures/losses/breaks from things and people that we thought we loved, advancing the way we invest of our energies in whole new, exciting ways altogether.
So let’s do this…
