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 a Cancer ?
Here is a two-part explanation
- The transformation that Uranus will bring to you over the next 8 years (2018-2026)
- 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.

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 the zodiac sign of Taurus in May 2018. With this transit, you, and other Cancer sun signs, are entering an eight-year period of fundamental transformation within your relationships.
What does this look like in practice? Over the next eight years, you can expect your relationships will undergo a major transformation, and especially relationships that are more social in nature. This means that, whether they are work relationships, company relationships, or the social communities you participate in, such as school — all connections of any kind may be affected by this period of change. Often, these changes don’t refer to a small, intimate relationship, but a group of people working toward a goal, like a sports team, for instance. If you’re currently working, imagine a group of people in your workplace or a project you are involved in. The transformation within your relationships can take place in this kind of network, for example.
Over a long period of time, from 2018 to 2026, these networks are
