Don't turn that dial, the station is broadcasting! Uranus, the Planet of Thunderbolts and Lighting, oh very very frightening! Sounds daunting, and yet this is the Planet of Liberation! It is the player in the solar system that says "Hey, I will do my own thing, and march to the beat of my own drum". It is a rebel of sorts as it rolls instead of spins, and even has a name that can be pronounced to say a naughty word.
Today it "stations". What that means is it will move retrograde or appear to be spinning backwards, and today it will stop or station. When a Planet stations it is part of the process of changing directions. For in order to go a different direction, we need to apply the brake (station) and then turn a different direction (retrograde).
Uranus is the "Awakener" as it is one of the slow moving outer Planets and can bring to light the unexpected. The purpose of the shift is always to "enlighten" or bring forward information that may result in change. In that way, we sometimes find Uranian influence to be shocking as it may seem to have come out of left field. How else do you crack open that which may be so "stuck" ?
Of particular interest is that Uranus has been "squaring" the Nodes of the Moon. These two points in space where the Moon crosses the Ecliptic reflect the evolving journey of growth. The South Node or upside down horseshoe reflects the past and where we have been. The North Node that looks like a horseshoe "N" reflecting where we are headed.
With Uranus putting tension through the square, that means there may have been unexpected events happening in our lives with the goal of getting us on the right track.
In some sense, we can trust these shifts as they are built to bring into awareness our true calling. With Uranus turning retrograde, the energy falls into the all the "RE" words. Review, recalibrate, renew, reconsider, rectify, etc.
Now is the time to look at your journey and where you are headed and contemplate where you want to go. What changes may have shown up for you lately, and how are they landing with your ultimate vision? Are there awakenings that have taken place? How do you want to apply this new awareness into your unfolding story?
Many Planets are currently retrograde- Mars, Saturn, Pluto, Neptune, Mercury which means the undercurrent of the Universe is asking us to turn inward and consider where we are. How do we want to move forward in the future? Action around these changes will not be well supported right now so hold off on getting frustrating if things are not happening at the pace you would like. Keep revisting the grander vision at play and take some time to review your journey.
