Shake It Up During Uranus Retrograde

The rebel planet makes change personal

Revolutionary planet Uranus is going retrograde on July 29, 2016, and you can take advantage of this!

If you watch the news, you know that struggles for freedom seem to be exploding all over the world. Huge changes are happening in many governments and political systems, and this energy is only about to get more amped up.

In Astrology, every planet has its own "personality." Uranus is the rebel of the group -- the one who likes to shock. When Uranus "goes retrograde," meaning that from our point-of-view on Earth, it appears to move backward. This changes the planet's power.

Over the next five months, Uranus will continue to shake us out of our comfort zones until it goes direct again on December 29 -- and we'll feel it on both an individual and a global scale. While Uranus has been known to inspire wars and revolutions, it will also create change from the inside out. Gandhi once said, "Be the change you want to see in the world," and this is exactly what Uranus Retrograde will push you to do!

But Uranus Retrograde also forces us to confront our own fears and personal roadblocks, so we can all expect a few "Ah ha!" moments of realization. This is a time for us to consider what the concept of "freedom" means to us, and what we need to fix or change in our lives to get it.

Uranus also forces us to get real about who we are and what we want, so if you're in the wrong job, working toward the wrong degree or dating the wrong person, Uranus Retrograde will let you know. While Uranus usually forces the changes that need to happen, over the next five months, it will quiet down and simply make you feel what needs an overhaul. So pay attention to Uranus's tough-love advice!

There was also a Uranus retrograde at my time of birth so that could be another reason I am experiencing it more than others.

My inner rebel is officially on the loose-and it has been quite a shock considering I am usually a follower of the rules and my behavior is often predictable. But when life throws us a few surprises it's only expected that we will react. I received an unexpected letter on Friday the 13th and ever since I have been acting a little differently. I think I will experience this retrograde more than the Mercury one because my sun is in the 11th house and Uranus is currently in my sun sign.

I, too am coming to grips with The Wall that I cannot continue to wait for, and hope that others see what they do to the detriment primarily to themselves, and peripherally to others. I have to let go and -the crucial exercise for me- to trust that things will resolve on its (not my) timetable.

I can honestly say that this has taken affect on me regarding my relationship with a certain partner. After struggling to keep the "family" together, I've decided that I can no longer continue to be the "glue" that has stuck with more than my fair share of responsibility of being mom and dad. I've done all I can do to take on more than I'm mentally, emotionally, and physically capable of doing. After realizing that I've tried for the past 17 years to make this relationship work, I can no longer fight. Over this past weekend, I have found a new place of abode and look forward to spiritually re-connecting with who I am rather than who I've been expected to be.
