The main astro-event this week is the retrograde turn of planet Uranus. I often liken the change of direction of one of the slower moving planets - and Uranus takes roughly 84 years to complete an orbit of the sun - to a massive liner turning around mid-ocean: it takes time and space. Unlike a retrograde Mercury whose effects we notice immediately, the ramifications of a retrograde Uranus can take weeks to reveal themselves. Uranus is synonymous with revolution, which is why when we have transiting Uranus reach key planets and points in our natal charts major change occurs.
And when Uranus is retrograde its revolutionary effects tend to be even more powerful. Whatever we suppress tends to erupt with force under a Uranus transit, and unless we consciously deal with the issues, they return underground only to reappear with even greater force at the next opportunity.And you can imagine how this process works on the world’s stage.
People who feel their voices are never heard go to greater and greater extremes to be acknowledged. Given the opportunity a disenfranchised majority can change the fortunes of a nation. Dare I mention the word, Brexit...So, with Uranus in retrograde until the 25th of December, we can expect look forward to increasing global political and social unrest, although there is also the welcome prospect of righting the wrongs of the past.
Fasten your seat-belts. Whether or not you are off on your travels, you are certainly in for a thrilling ride...
