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 21) 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 22 – September 21) 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 22 – 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 18) 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 19 – 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 have been listening to Kelli Fox's astrology videos for a few years now (even before astrology.tv started). I was drawn by both her personality and her voice (love Aussie accents), but especially by her astrological insights that always seemed to be spot on. I now watch her daily, weekly and monthly videos on astrology.tv with great anticipation, and have been joining her weekly astrology.tv weekly sessions for the past month, which are very fun and informant. I like the fact that she will go over personal charts of her viewers during these sessions (still waiting for mine, though) and being able to interact with other viewers in a chat room (Kelli loves being distracted by us!). Anyway, I highly recommend signing up for her newsletters and joining her groups. Kelli is the best!Cached

    I really enjoyed the free astrology video! I'm born on the Leo/Virgo cusp (1° Virgo) and I've always said that sometimes I feel like two different people. This video really explained so much of why that is. Most sites just concentrate on the birth sign, with not much, if anything, about the cusp birthdays. I never felt like I was just all Virgo and now I know why - I have so many Leo traits! Thank you for delving more deeply into what being born on this cusp means in my chart. I can't wait to order the full report!Cached

    Your predictions for my life and where im going, feeling and struggling with are so spot-on as to leave me speechless -a rare event indeed. My friends didn't nickname me Ramble for no reason. Even my thoughts, my desires are 100% accurate. I'm trying to decide when to move to New Zealand to meet up with my boyfriend for getting married, and you've called that too. I'm having to sell most of my belongings, things that no longer serve me. Just as you've said in my reading. I'm so looking forward to the next chapter of my life as a married man and a healer of others' sorrow and hurts, which is my destiny. Thank You, Kelli, for your continued recommendations for my life.Cached

Of course it meant a lot more coming from a knowledgeable person face-to-face (kind of) rather than just reading it on the internet. I hope to get my birth chart read so I can know a professional opinion about it. Good luck for the future!Cached

    I want to thank you so much for being that masterful teacher of astrology. Your webinars have awaken a part of me that I’ve interested in since childhood but never really paid much attention to in terms of delving into the study of astrology. Prior to meeting you, astrology was simply my daily / weekly horoscope. Today I’ve come to realize through your immense knowledge of what its significance is to understanding who we are upon birth as well as life’s path. I’m wholeheartedly grateful for the work you do for humanity. May you be blessed with all of the Universal blessings perpetually. Peace profound. Light and progress.Cached

    Really enjoyed the event, it was really informative. It was the 3rd time I attended your weekly calls - the first call (re: Venus retrograde) had a great amount of detail and was the perfect level of description, I easily understood everything you told us (i.e. it wasn't too advanced). I felt like the 2nd call last week was more basic, too basic for my preferences. The call last night was closer to the level of detail of the first call. Your explanations are really clear and focused. I like that you are able to take questions. Overall, I have really been enjoying these calls and have been learning so much! Thank you for doing these! Thank you!Cached

    I think you're doing a great job! You're clear, focused and succinct. I like the way you are able to accommodate the general audience, interpretation of the general outlook for all the signs with the individual charts. Also, regarding my level of Astrological understanding, I've been following Astrology for over 40 years, getting mostly yearly forecasts and looking at the newspapers' daily Astrology columns. I think you're doing a good job of stating the astrological configuration and the implication of such when giving the chart interpretation. I do like getting the configuration info so I can follow it knowing how to work with the energies and how long I'll have to deal with or enjoy them.Cached

    Hello Kelli, Your video was my first Zoom meeting! I enjoyed the meeting, I feel the time of day was good as most of us have the time to attend in the afternoon. The content you covered seemed thorough, I think maybe covering (as simply as possible) the houses would be helpful, but one or two at a time for better understanding. For me, I’d like to know what the most inner, numbered ring means. Overall. I REALLY like your readings. :-) Thank youCached

Kelli hit the nail on the head stating that Oct 23rd was a cusp! Thank you for stating this as I feel I share both of these qualities. I have been reading my Astrological signs for years and I read both Libra and Scorpio. The minute I saw you read the correct signs, I just HAD to purchase these readings to read more!

    Thank u for giving me the opportunity to listen to the video :) loved the background engineering and voice of the speaker - a lot of thought went into the production of the video:). My understanding is that a broad personality perspective was given than a short insight was given of all the glifs, i.e. Mars, was explained at the time of my birth. That helped to explain a lot of information but the question I have been wanted answered was! I suspected the answer as I am no spring chicken and I was right. I came to be of service to humanity. Namely my family and through my work - it was very concise and thank u for that! :) LV Truth LightCached
