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 Virgo ?
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.
(1) The transformation that Uranus will bring to you over the next 8 years (2018-2026)
Fun fact: 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, Virgos are entering an eight-year period of transformation within your goals. You may have been working hard to achieve your goals in the past, and some of you may have sacrificed many things in order to achieve your goals. So understandably, it may seem uncomfortable or wholly undesirable to hear that your goals are likely to change.
Some people may be afraid that all their efforts will be in vain. However, this change in “general goal direction” is not a negative thing, as you’re ultimately shifting to a more long-term, practical goal for where you are in your present day.
