Revolutionary planet Uranus is going retrograde on August 3, 2017, 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 January 2, 2018 -- 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!
