Uranus’ is a very revolutionary planet as its energies seek freedom of expression and have a strong desire to remove themselves from anything that has gone stale or no longer serves a viable purpose. Uranus’ energy acts in an unexpected manner and you can never be totally sure how it will react under pressure.

Under most conditions, the area of life being affect by Uranus is the house it is transiting through especially in the retrograde cycle. There is often a feeling that something has to change or be shaken up somewhat before its actual expression is activated. Quite often you get warnings of necessary changes in the area of life under review and then when it turns direct either you make the necessary changes or life makes things happen for you. If you choose to do nothing then life will often take a leading role and quite often it is not overly pleasant in its expression. Things can happen on the spur of the moment, suddenly, unexpectedly, without warning. With Uranus, you can expect the unexpected.

When a planet is in retrograde, the energies related to the planet and the house(s) it is transiting are stifled or held back. The energy is turned inward and a time for review is at hand. It is a time to re-think things, to re-do things and in an attempt to repair things, you can prepare for when the energies are released and then move forward in the new direction of your choice. The best time to move forward in your objectives is when the planet goes direct.

Uranus suggests that this is a time for inner reflection not only about your life but on a more personal level – the level of “who you are”. It often provides you with more freedom of expression and you just want to be you, or the new you. This is particularly so if Uranus is retrograde in your birth chart. (Any planet that is retrograde in the birth chart becomes more powerful when it turns retrograde through transit.)

Uranus is known as the awakener and this is what it will try to achieve in the area of life dictated by the house it is transiting in your chart. You should also have a look at the natal placement of Uranus by house and also by aspect as this will give you clues into how things might unfold. As with all of the outer planets, Uranus will make suggestions along the way but it will often create a reaction with little or no direction from you.

Life happens and things change. Uranus will be the culprit behind these actions, but remember regardless of how drastic and challenging the conditions may be, Uranus always provides you with exactly what you need. The end result is beneficial.

When Uranus goes direct this will often be the time when these areas of life that are involved will be motivated to move towards the new, to make necessary changes but can be in disruptive ways but just for the moment. Do not spend any time worrying about how things might manifest, as Uranus acts on impulse and without warning and often releases in ways that you cannot be prepared for.

Some people fear changes. Those who are more evolved, or open to the new, know that when the timing is ripe and change is necessary, it should be welcomed with open arms. Uranus will take you where you need to go, so be open and listen. You will know which avenue to take, if life does not dictate, that is.
