After a five-month retrograde period, Uranus stationed direct yesterday, Sunday, January 6.
Last May, Uranus – the planet of innovation, rebellion, and evolution – entered Taurus for the first time since 1942.
During its retrograde period, it slipped back into Aries, where it was from 2011 until 2018 when it began its transit through Taurus.
Because Uranus spends about seven years in a sign, it can herald new eras within our collective experiences. It is a generational planet that colours longer-term themes, inventions, beliefs, and politics.
But like anything in the collective, Uranus’ energies also affect our personal consciousness.
Uranus’ entry into Taurus is a significant shift to pay attention to. It marks a turning point in our world when it comes to our relationships with work, money, the body, and more. (Here’s a deeper discussion into Uranus in Taurus if you want to learn more.)
In Aries, Uranus can be intensely creative and pioneering, but like anything else, those energies have to be used to wisely. Uranus in Aries can also give way to individual extremism and a culture that forgets how to balance differing viewpoints.
Whatever happens with Uranus in Taurus, Uranus in Aries has been paving the way towards it. During Uranus’ retrograde in Aries, you may have had another chance to revisit a theme that emerged for you from 2011 to 2018.
If you need to do a bit more work on your personal freedoms and independence, Uranus may put the pressure on to work through any challenges with authority, or with commitments that were not allowing you to evolve to new potentials. This planet will continue to travel through Aries until March 6, when it re-enters Taurus.
How can you expand your own horizons with the energy of this time?
Today, Venus enters Sagittarius, where she will stay until February 3. The planet of desire in freedom-seeking Sag encourages us to find inspiration through our connections with the world around us.
If it helps, here is an intention to take with you throughout the week:
“I am consciously creating my reality.”
Until next time,
