We have witnessed almost all of the major planets retrograde this year and since August 15, Uranus, the wild child planet has been added to that list. Uranus Retrograde 2020 is here to help us deal with some of the most unexpected changes that have rocked our world both personally and collectively since the start of 2020, and we have five full months to deal with this.
Uranus is sometimes referred to as “the great awakener” in astrology, and that’s because this planet is all about sudden changes, bursts of inspiration, and the buzz of revolution.
On a personal level, it helps us embrace the weird and quirky sides of ourselves and on a societal level, to boldly rebel against the status quo. During its retrograde through the earthy sign of Taurus this year, we learn to integrate the changes in our financial lives, our value system, and our sensory experiences more specifically.
No one can escape the unpredictable changes that retrograde Uranus brings. But for the lucky few zodiac signs that Uranus Retrograde 2020 most positively affects, these changes will likely be welcome.
As a fixed earthy sign, you are known to be stubborn, Taurus. So, while Uranus is retrograde through your sign may be uncomfortable, as it challenges your resistance to change, this boundary-pushing energy is what you need to become a more authentic version of yourself.
Over the next five months, you will realize new things about who you are, maybe recognizing new opinions you have, new aspects of your personality, or even embracing a new personal style. Instead of fearing these changes, embrace them. You might be surprised at how at home you feel in a new set of shoes.
You tend to be more of the pragmatic type, Virgo, but retrograde Uranus asks you to broaden your horizons and open up to new experiences. As a time of major growth and learning for you, this is a great time to reflect on the people, places, and fields of study that have piqued your interest in the past year.
Work on recognizing the things that are the most stimulating for your mind and spirit over the next few months, and feel more comfortable letting your mind wander. Once the retrograde is complete, you’ll be less afraid of booking last-minute vacations, signing up for new courses, or even changing career paths.
If you want to get the most out of this retrograde, you’ll need to press “mute” on the work-obsessed part of your brain and turn up the volume on the things that make you playful and excited. 2020 has been unpredictable, but so have the ways you found joy throughout the intensity. Take the time to process the things that make you happy and learn to express yourself in new ways.
