But this doesn’t mean that Uranus becomes like the rest of the planets. Retrograde periods are internal, and with the Uranus retrograde over the next five months, the realness and liberation of Uranus energy will be internalized instead of being displayed externally. The rebel and discord maker turns on itself. The impact of Uranus retrograde will have an impact both personally and collectively with the goal of liberating us from stuck patterns and ruts courtesy of the fixed earth sign Taurus. This will show up as us challenging the status quo and tradition in all aspects of our lives.
With Uranus retrograde in Taurus, freedom is available to all of us, but it is not free, nor does freedom come without effort. This Uranus retrograde will prompt us to consider what doesn’t work and have the courage to march to the beat of our own drum, but first, we have to go inside to know what is best for us so that we can liberate ourselves from stuck patterns that no longer work.
Reconsidering Taurean Themes
Over the next five months, we get an opportunity to review some Taurean themes as a relates to Uranus. One of the main issues with Taurus is stubbornness and stagnation. Uranus/Aquarius energy is the liberator while Venus/Taurus energy is intent on sameness in order to build solid foundations. The following is an overview of some of the major Taurean themes to explore during this Uranus retrograde transit.
One aspect of Uranus retrograde is the reconsideration of our self-worth. Over the next five months, it is quite possible that we will encounter experiences external to us as well as internal revelations into our self-worth. This is important because the foundation in which we build our self-worth determines if we genuinely value who we are or if we believe our worth is based on something external. The revelation and internal integration that self-worth comes from inside rather than external validation is accented during the Uranus in Taurus transit.
What Do Your Really Value?
The retrograde Uranus in Taurus transit will our value system under scrutiny. What do we value and why? Now is an exceptional time for us to do the internal work to determine where our value systems originate and whether these systems align with who we truly are. Under the energy of Uranus retrograde, we get an opportunity to assess what we value and why.
The reassessment of values will occur both personally and collectively. The world is going through a lot of changes right now as it relates to Taurus themes such as money and resources. We will all get an opportunity to go within and consider if value systems align with who we are. A good example is the value of the American dream. Those born in America have been told that the American dream is something to strive for. However, is this dream what people in America want? This is a type of reconsideration of value that can come up during a Uranus retrograde in Taurus.
Money & Resources
It’s not possible to talk about Taurus energy and Uranian innovations and revelations without mentioning finances and resources. Over the next five months, both personally and collectively, we have the opportunity to consider our relationship with finances and resources and whether or not we feel liberated or stuck when it comes to meeting our survival needs. The Uranus retrograde offers us the opportunity to consider how we can liberate ourselves when obtaining finances and resources for our own sustenance and survival. Some may consider freelancing and self-employment to achieve financial freedom.
Finally, there is the consideration of whether our foundations offer us freedom and liberation or if they are stifling and limiting. The combination of Uranus with Taurus speaks of earthquake energy. Taurus energy is very solid, stubborn, and steadfast. Usually, the only way to really shake up this energy is if something comes in and essentially disrupts the foundation forcing a new start. For some, Uranus retrograde in Taurus could essentially create internal and external earthquakes that shake up our foundations in order to free us from stagnation and ruts.
Scary? For some, yes, this could be quite scary, particularly because our foundations are the basis for survival. However, allowing ourselves to experience the heightened rebellious nature of Uranus retrograde gives us the internal illumination and revelations needed in order to move us forward on a path that is authentic and true to who we are.
Ultimately, the energy of Uranus retrograde in Taurus provides five months of internal reflection that has the potential to free us from ruts, stubbornness, and limitations. From our values and relationships to money and resources, Uranus retrograde in Taurus grants the opportunity to genuinely obtain liberation and freedom at the very foundation of who we are.
