Uranus, the freewheelin’, side spinning planet of innovation and surprises is now retrograde until January 14th, 2021. Personally, I quite like this energy. Uranus is one of the outer planets in the solar system and therefore it’s backspin doesn’t affect us as heavily as say, Venus or Mercury Rx does, however, it can also bring about the potential for much needed change.

Also known as ‘The Great Awakener’, Uranus is the planet of rebellion and unexpected events, and as this is ocuuring in earthy, sensual Taurus, expect everything we place value on, from ourselves, our environment and our planet, to animal welfare and the food on our plate to be turned on its head.

The astrology for the remainder of 2020 is going to be intense, and with a second wave of covid expected and an incredibly important US presidential election on the horizon, there is a huge necessity for change and innovation right now, so don’t fear the retrograde, this just might be the catalyst for a welcome shift in both our personal and collective consciousness.

You can harness this electric energy by stepping out of your comfort zone and challenging any self-limiting beliefs about yourself or the world around you. When we commit to shifting fixed and outdated feelings and beliefs, we create a space in which to broaden our horizons and see the world with renewed perspective. It is precisely in this space that change and growth occur. This is where the magic happens.
