Uranus Retrograde in Taurus:

Re-thinking the Shake Up

In astrology, when Uranus turns retrograde, we get a chance to catch our breath from the astrological impact of this planet’s forward motion. But what exactly is Uranus retrograde, why does it matter, and what can we expect?

What Does Uranus Retrograde Mean?

Uranus is a very slow-moving planet, taking some 84 years to travel right around the zodiac and complete its orbit of the Sun. It spends approximately 7 years in each zodiac sign, but it spends about 40% of the time in retrograde motion.

When a planet is retrograde, it appears, as viewed from the Earth, to be moving backwards. It isn’t – no planet ever moves backwards in its orbit, it’s just an illusion. Have you noticed how, when you overtake a moving car, the car appears to fall backwards in your mirror even though it’s still moving forwards? That’s effectively the illusion of retrograde motion. Its astrological symbolism, however, is important – when a planet turns retrograde, its energy shifts slightly, and we get a different take on the planet’s expression in our lives.

Uranus turns retrograde once a year for about five months, so this is not uncommon.

How Does Uranus Retrograde Manifest?

Astrologically, Uranus is the planet of shocks and surprises. It shakes things up, and forces change. It can bring innovation, invention and absolute brilliance, but it can also bring chaos, drama and pain while unwelcome changes take place.

When Uranus is direct (in normal forward motion), its energy is expressed through the zodiac sign it is transiting. This usually means a high-speed expression of energy in your horoscope, with sudden twists and turns which can be breathtaking in their size. It’s pretty exhausting! When Uranus turns retrograde, however, we get a breathing space. The pace of change slows down, there are fewer twists and turns, and we get to figure out how to embrace what is happening instead of battling against is. While Uranus direct is known for bringing breakdowns and breakups in astrology, Uranus retrograde brings breakthroughs – fresh understanding for managing this planet’s influence.

What Does Uranus Retrograde in Taurus Mean?

Uranus is currently transiting Taurus. Taurus as a zodiac sign is earth energy, stable, solid, focused, constructive and trustworthy. Uranus’ transit here brings change connected to the earth – climate issues, environmental issues and a questioning of our very relationship with our planet. Because Taurus also rules finance, Uranus’ transit through Taurus is also expected to bring some dramatic changes to the financial markets and the way the world handles – and views – money.

On a personal level, many of us find that Uranus’ transit through Taurus is shaking up our foundations and breaking down things we took for granted. When Uranus turns retrograde in Taurus, we have a chance to take stock and to re-visit what has happened. We can now turn the changes Uranus has brought to our advantage and prepare for further change once this planet turns direct again.

How Will Uranus Retrograde in Taurus Affect Each Zodiac Sign?

Uranus Retrograde in Taurus will affect each zodiac sign slightly differently; its precise effect depends upon the position of Uranus in your natal chart, other important factors in your natal chart, and how these relate to Uranus’ current position. Overall, however, each zodiac sign will be seeking to make sense of the change that it’s currently experiencing.

Aries Zodiac Sign (Aries Dates: March 20 – April 19) During Uranus Retrograde in Taurus

Financial issues have been stressful during Uranus’ transit. The retrograde period gives you a chance to get back on track. Use this energy to create new income streams, or to tighten your belt and lose excess spending. Work to create a buffer zone so that any future financial stress doesn’t impact you so much.

Taurus Zodiac Sign (Taurus Dates: April 20 – May 20) During Uranus Retrograde in Taurus

Uranus retrograde in your sign is about understanding the changes you want to make to your own individual expression. If you’ve been pigeon-holed or overlooked, you can use this period to work on your confidence and on your ability to showcase your talents. It’s time to be proud of who you are, without hesitation.

Gemini Zodiac Sign (Gemini Dates: May 21 – June 20) During Uranus Retrograde in Taurus

The Uranus transit has brought shocks and surprises in your spiritual life, perhaps with you having experienced some things that have scared you or startled you. Now is your chance to develop your understanding of what’s going on here. It’s a great time to develop mediumship or psychic skills, or to look into dream analysis and synchronicity.

Cancer Zodiac Sign (Cancer Dates: June 21 – July 21) During Uranus Retrograde in Taurus

Changes to your social circle may have been stressful or felt forced during Uranus’ transit. While Uranus is retrograde, however, you’ll come to a greater understanding of why some friendships ended and others began. Take a wider view of your interconnectedness and learn why you resonate with some particular souls.

Leo Zodiac Sign (Leo Dates: July 22 – August 22) During Uranus Retrograde in Taurus

Upheaval in your career has been difficult to deal with during the Uranus transit, but this retrograde period brings you time and breathing space to regroup, regather your thoughts and to plot your direction. Assess where you’re heading and adjust course if necessary. Don’t lose sight of your end goals.

Virgo Zodiac Sign (Virgo Dates: August 23 – September 22) During Uranus Retrograde in Taurus

You’ve been growing a lot during the Uranus transit, particularly in terms of your willingness to undertake adventure. Travel, education and an understanding of other cultures has broadened your mind, but now is your chance to understand how your spiritual calling fits in with this new, more adventurous you.

Libra Zodiac Sign (Libra Dates: September 23 – October 22) During Uranus Retrograde in Taurus

The biggest changes during the Uranus transit have come in your own psychology and self-growth, but the pace of change has been exhausting. Take a break now. You don’t have to be constantly working on yourself. Sometimes, its fine to just be who you are and to live in the moment, and that is the gift Uranus retrograde brings you.

Scorpio Zodiac Sign (Scorpio Dates: October 23 – November 21) During Uranus Retrograde in Taurus

Uranus’ transit through Taurus has brought shocks and upheavals to your love life. During the retrograde period, you have a chance to heal any damage – if you want to – or to move on from it. An honest assessment of your relationship is necessary now. If you’re not honest with yourself, you can’t expect to be honest with your partner either.

Sagittarius Zodiac Sign (Sagittarius Dates: November 22 – December 20) During Uranus Retrograde in Taurus

Lifestyle changes have been made possible by Uranus’ transit through Taurus, but it’s been hard work figuring out how you want things to change. Use the energies of Uranus retrograde to assess your options and to consult with loved ones about where you want to be moving forwards. Maintaining the status quo is not an option.

Capricorn Zodiac Sign (Capricorn Dates: December 21 – January 19) During Uranus Retrograde in Taurus

Your attitude towards risk has been changing during Uranus’ transit of Taurus, and you’re starting to become less risk averse. However, during Uranus retrograde, you should consider whether you’re gone slightly too far in the other direction. Seek some stability and certain ground; come down from the high of adventure and remember your soul purpose.

Aquarius Zodiac Sign (Aquarius Dates: January 20 – February 17) During Uranus Retrograde in Taurus

Uranus’ transit through Taurus has focused on change in your family and domestic life, but while Uranus is retrograde, you can start to understand how these changes have affected your feeling of belonging. Everyone needs roots, even independent Aquarius – make sure that your roots are well bedded in now, so that you can withstand emotional change.

Pisces Zodiac Sign (Pisces Dates: February 18 – March 19) During Uranus Retrograde in Taurus

Everyday life has been rather volatile while Uranus has been transiting Taurus. Although not all of the shocks and surprises have been bad, the emotional instability has worn you out. Take a breather during Uranus retrograde. Meditation and visualization will help to soothe and calm you, and you have a chance now to get some good quality sleep too.

    I can't describe how excited I was when I found out about this course with my favourite Astrologer Kelli Fox. It was absolutely FASCINATING! I highly recommend it to anyone, especially like me if you love astrology more as a hobby and just want to suck in as much information as you can. I loved all the extra pages of information you can go through that are linked up with Kelli's website when needing a greater understanding. I already can't wait to go back through the course again and finding out how much more I can learn. I hope there will be more courses in future with Kelli. She is the best!Cached

The only issue I have is occasionally on the site itself, some of the links don't seem to connect...like the birth/natal chart...whether through email or the search engine links, or even the ones here on the site. As far as the readings, reports, horoscopes, etc. go....A+ and then some!!!! Love you Kelli!Cached

    Awesome Amazing Beautiful Fantastic! When I found Kelli Fox it was what I needed to know and read about that I am as a Libra. The positive words of Wisdom that was confirmed. I live in the mountains of Blue Ridge Georgia and God really helped me locate this beautiful home - one level with a very long driveway. I read the testimonial of a man called William K and i was not out looking at the stars which I should being alone with the deer turkeys and bears I am cautious about the night time. However this man had a person born November 14th that is my fathers birthday and so I thought i need to write to you. Thank you so much Kelli Fox for being there for me. I cried when I read all that your web site told me about myself. My home is way up in the mountains and it is amazingly God given wisdom that made me buy it for peace and tranquility. Now I am wondering if its time to go to a place closer to the town since it is a two lane road to get to town. I love the drive to town however when ive got to get to the airport it's 2 hours and then I'm late since I start to hesitate (as a Libra) and then I'm late by an hour at times! Thank you. I love all of your website. The time now 4.16 am early morning. I'm always an early riser! Thank you again Kelli Fox. Many blessings to you.Cached

    I live in Georgia I’ve attended yesterday’s zoom about Mars Retrograde, I opened the compass on my phone went outside around 8:45 -9:00 pm eastern time zone, walked down the driveway, it’s a beautiful driveway with and amazing view of the sky, So I walked down my driveway glancing, at my compass, got to the end of the driveway, I was already walking west, Look again at my compass, looked up and bam, there it was. Blinking I thought it was a plane at first, the sky was clear so I was able to see all the other stars very well, but Mars from where its located was by itself, there wasn’t any other stars around it, it had a bit reddish glow to it that’s how I knew it was Mars, one of the best days of my life, you want to know something cool, my son is a Scorpio Nov 14/2005 words can’t express the feeling I had knowing that I was looking at my sons ruler, I am a Taurus May 19/1986 special night for me.Cached

    Hi there! I am thoroughly enjoying receiving your horoscopes and informative information on how the planets are affecting our everyday lives. To say this year has been so unpredictable is an understatement, but when you explain how the planets are ‘behaving’, it makes much more sense to me. I have known about the spirit world from being a small child and am in fact a registered healer working in my local church helping and teaching as many people as I can. I feel very much the different energies in people who are unknown to me and can sum them up, usually with uncanny accuracy. A gift from God that I cherish and will never abuse.... if I do, I know it will be taken away from me. Thank you again for your insights and please keep them coming. Sending lots of hugs 🤗🤗🤗🤗 to you and yours. 💜💞💜Cached
