The planet Uranus stations retrograde today at 10° 41’ Taurus. She’ll be retrograde through January 11, 2021 when he’ll turn direct at 2°39’ Taurus. The day of, two days before and the day after the retrograde are often when major shifts occur in the world and in our personal lives pertaining to Uranian matters and in Uranian ways. The other important dates are when she makes sharp aspects to natal planets but for now we are dealing mainly with the station.
We’ve been feeling the energy the past few days and it will be here throughout the weekend. Retrogrades are a reversal of energy, change of attitude, switch of direction. There may be reversals and changes to friendships, teams and alliances since Uranus is very concerned with matters pertaining to groups. In the sign of Taurus the question will be which friends, teams, groups and alliances hold the most value and substance in your life. Which are worth holding on to, and which don’t hold inherent value anymore that you might distance, divorce or separate from? Perhaps the shift in status can be over something as mundane as money. When it comes to money there could be simplistic arguments and blow ups over what different people value about it. For many there must be more introspection on the retrograde on how to be innovative in creating new sources of income. Many have been detached and castrated from financial sources and this retrograde through the end of the year offers an opportunity to recreate those resources. Unearth a new talent and be inspired to use innate talents in innovative ways. Another stimulus package should be coming down the pike within a matter of weeks on this retrograde.
This planet has a great deal to do with divorce. These days are fraught with wanting to break away from others whether spouses, friends or family members. Really think hard whether those in your life add depth and substance or detract from those qualities.
If something explosive has happened in the last few days or occurs in the upcoming few days don’t try to fix the problem immediately with a knee jerk response. Someone may come at you with something that angers, disrupts or sets you in a chaotic tailspin. It’s best not to react in similar fashion. Detach, get some distance, see things from a bird’s eye view and then tackle a response next week sometime after more objectivity is reached. Unless a major eruption calls for an immediate response, take the high road and remain objectively distant. Only certain very important life altering events will demand an immediate and quick response.
Uranus is a planet of originality and innovation and this is a turning point on how to figure out how to make yourself stand out from the crowd and show off your uniqueness. We have 5 months to make that rebirth and this weekend is the start.
Uranus also likes to break, overthrow and revolutionize and because Taurus is a money sign watch what continues to be thrown off balance with the economy and our resources. Stock markets and economic forecasts will continue to be volatile and off kilter.
Those who don’t like being told what to do; for instance wearing a mask, may become more irritable, volatile, contrary and confrontational so hold off on provoking others even if you’re in the right. Uranus can be an iconoclast so watch for the further destruction of old, cherished and/or antiquated structures and belief systems that have been long held in high value but are now crumbling.
It is especially important to watch for volcanic explosions from Mother Nature.
Keep your mind open to original thinking and allow yourself to change strait-jacketed or vice- like thinking and habits otherwise they will break your will in much more uncomfortable mental and physical ways.
This can also be a weekend of making unexpected new friendships and social contacts with people that over the coming months may become more deeply connected and bonded with you. This weekend’s Moon/Venus conjunction in Cancer is an extremely loving family connection that comes from the heart so be aware of new relationships fitting into that category that suddenly commence.
