On August 15, 2020, the planet of awakening, change, and liberation enters the underworld, where it will remain until January 14, 2021.
As Uranus travels retrograde through the underworld, it will be going over the last seven months of our lives, helping us to iron out any cracks and to fix or release whatever has been unstable.
Uranus will guide us to address the things that are crumbling in our lives, either by helping us to let go, or by helping us to gain a new perspective so we can strengthen them.
Sometimes we can be blindsided by its moves, so during this period if you notice anything shaky or unsteady in your life, step back and recognize that Uranus may be guiding you to look a little closer.
Uranus doesn’t just shake up our lives for no reason, it does so to awaken us. It wants us to look at things in a new way, it wants us to revolutionize our perspective so we can easily clear a path for all that is meant to find us.
As the planet of awakening, when it enters the underworld, we may feel more connected to our guides, to the cosmos, and to our past lives.
We may have dreams or visions of past experiences or incarnations, or we may be guided to remember lost knowledge or wisdom from the world around us.
One of the freedoms that Uranus offers us, especially when it enters the underworld, is to look past the physical constraints and to view life in another way.
Life has limits, rules, and boundaries – this is true, but Uranus knows there is a higher truth, and when we can tune in and access this higher truth for ourselves, that is when we can connect with the liberation that Uranus brings.
Uranus Retrograde in Taurus
Uranus will retrograde through the sign of Taurus, which means we may feel a push-pull between embracing the new and letting go of the old.
Uranus will be in Taurus until 2026, so these are all themes we are working with for some time, however under this 2020 retrograde, we may notice that our feelings of security and comfort are highlighted, especially around our material possessions and our relationship with food.
We may also be guided to think about where we have been depending on food or material possessions in order to bring ourselves a false sense of comfort.
If you have been looking for security and comfort through food or other material means, this retrograde may bring the perfect weather to make some changes.
We may also notice under this retrograde energy that there are changes to our food supply or to the farming industry. See if you can support local farmers or buy your fresh produce from farmers markets if possible.
Come the end of November, Uranus will be the only planet in retrograde, which will really allow us to focus and concentrate on its energies and lessons.
