Uranus begins retrograde on Aug 24, 2022: Accelerating a transformation that will take eight years!

On August 24, 2022, Uranus went retrograde (and will continue to go retrograde until January 22, 2023).

Uranus moved into the earthy and abundant sign of Taurus in 2018 (followed by a brief period of returning to Aries), and will be sitting comfortably in this zodiac sign until 2026.

So, what will Uranus bring to us during this long period of 8 years in total?

Before we get into the effects of the retrograde, let’s first explore the role of Uranus.

Uranus is the planet of change, and bringing about change in people, society, and the world. In other words, Uranus is not just about the small changes in everyday life, but big changes that take as long as eight years.

But how does this change happen?

Often, Uranus brings us changes through large-scale concepts, ideas, and structures that we previously considered to be normal as a collective. By changing the “concepts” or ideas that were previously taken for granted, the framework of society changes and the way people live changes.

Ultimately, society is made up of a combination of various concepts and ideas. We, human beings, become social beings only when we share these concepts. When our collective concept of what is normal changes, the society we once knew can transform and change!

Naturally, those of us who participate in society are also affected by these changes. This is where the role of Uranus comes in! Uranus’ role in this picture is to shake up society by bringing about changes in these “collective concepts” and to lead us into a new era. And those who respond to the new era will be pushed to the front of society, helping us usher it in.

As we mentioned, Uranus is now in Taurus, and during the next eight years, this centers most of our “collective concepts” in themes like abundance, career, and finances. A new economic society is emerging, one where traditional work methods and values of the past will not work. So, as individuals, we will all have to adapt, learn, and grow to abide by these new changes in our worldview of money and abundance.

What Uranus Retrograde Brings:

Your next question may naturally be: what will happen during these five months of Uranus retrograde?

When a planet goes retrograde, the fate of the sign under its control enters a period of adjustment, change, and internal renewal.

Imagine an image of someone shaking off the stagnation and achiness that may come from sitting still for too long, for example. The same occurs with a planet going retrograde! By stretching the muscles and joints in the direction not normally ventured, we can see a new perspective and experience new sensations we otherwise may have missed.

This is the meaning of the stars going retrograde. Since it is a period of change and adjustment, you may also notice “growing pains,” so to speak, in the way we respond and react to it. But don’t fret — this awareness and discomfort means we are aligned with the movement of the planets, and that will help us move in the right direction.

Typically, however, this is not something that we need to worry too much about in our day-to-day lives.

As aforementioned, Uranus brings about change over a long period of time, so we don’t feel its effects directly on a daily basis, even if a planet is going retrograde. However, you may be able to clearly sense the direction of these large shifts that are taking place over a long period of eight years. Additionally, you may feel the transformative power of Uranus, which you are not usually aware of, through small events or intuitive nudges of change and insight.

In conclusion, you can think of this 5-month Uranus retrograde period as a time to get a clearer picture of the change and transformation you are currently experiencing, and to help guide you along the path of change (that will continue until 2026).

In the following article, we will talk about the changes that Uranus will bring for each of the 12 zodiac signs. Ultimately, these changes are here to help us grow and step into the best versions of ourselves!
