For Aries: The meaning of Uranus retrograde and the transformation that takes eight years (2018 – 2026)

Uranus is the planet of transformation. It moves through the zodiac only about once every eight years, leading people through their own transformations. Right now Uranus is in Taurus, and over a long period of time, a total of 8 years from 2018 to 2026, Uranus is working to bring you great change.

Uranus will begin retrograde on August 24, 2022. It will continue retrograde until January 22, 2023.

The period when the planet is retrograde is a period of adjustment to make your destiny go in the right direction. By stretching one’s destiny in a direction that is not normally used, the stagnation that clings to it is shaken off, and the planet’s original destiny is made to ring out correctly. So, what is the effect of Uranus’ five-month retrograde on you, as an Aries ?

Here is a two-part explanation

  1. The transformation that Uranus will bring to you over the next 8 years (2018-2026)
  2. The meaning this retrograde will bring to you (August 24, 2022 – January 22, 2023)

Uranus is a slow-moving planet, so the effects of the retrograde will also be jittery and slow. There is no need to fear it unnecessarily, as you will not feel its influence directly in your daily life. However, what is slowly changing under the surface will appear in our lives as a visible transformation at a certain point. The retrograde period is a time when such changes are relatively likely to surface.

(1) The transformation that Uranus will bring to you over the next 8 years (2018-2026)

It takes 84 years for Uranus to go around the 12 signs of the zodiac. In other words, it takes about the same amount of time as one person’s life to go through all the signs. Therefore, Uranus stays in one constellation for as long as 7 or 8 years. This may put into perspective why the change that Uranus brings is so deep, profound, and transformative, and will ultimately take a long time to complete.

Uranus moved into Taurus in May 2018. This means that you, as an Aries, have entered a period of transformation in your own social mission. To put it simply, this is a period of eight years in which your identity and sense of self in relation to society will be transformed.

By “in society,” perhaps it’s easiest to think of your connection to it in terms of money and abundance, which is really its own kind of relationship too. It is a relationship in which you receive a salary for belonging to a company, or a commission for undertaking a job, etc. Or, it’s a relationship in which you receive money in exchange for offering your abilities and time in general.

However, of course, society does not only consist of money and work relationships. For example, schools, local community activities (including management associations of condominiums), and relationships with politics and government can also be considered social.

In the eight years between 2018 and 2026, these “social identity” aspects of you will change. For example,
