For the last couple of years there has been tension between Saturn in Aquarius and Uranus in Taurus. In 2021 Saturn squared Uranus three times and in 2022 the two planets retrograded close enough to bring back the 2021 tension. The beef was between holding on to the status quo and jettisoning everything to go new or even rogue. Now with Uranus stationing direct he is free of Saturn since Saturn turned direct last September and has moved on down the zodiac road getting out of the tension zone with Uranus. What Uranus looks like without stern taskmaster Saturn on his ass will be interesting to watch.
Uranus of course at 14/15 degrees, is in the middle of Taurus a sign it really does not enjoy, and the feeling is mutual since Taurus does not enjoy Uranus. In the last round of Uranus in Taurus in the 1930s, fascism was on the rise and taking other people’s land and stuff appeared to be a priority. Extreme weather brought famine and when dirt from Nebraska enveloped DC in a dusty cloud, the media and the Federal Government realized we had a problem. The cause of the Dust Bowl was mismanaged farming practices in the plains for a generation. Smarter practices were needed, ah, Uranus never too subtle. The radio exploded in popularity. More and more people heard world events in real time in their homes with the radio. In our current landscape, look no further than our extreme snow weather events and a mismanaged airline (Uranus rules flight) to wreak havoc on tens of thousands of travelers. Then of course there is the human equivalent of a walking Dust Bowl – Elon Musk doing whatever it is he is doing to Twitter. Good luck on that one, EM. So, a lot has been going on while Uranus was retrograde. Now that it turns direct, we will be revisiting some of the themes that came up since August 24 last year. For people who have planets between 14-18 degrees Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius you may be feeling your own need to revolutionize some part of your life.
The next retrograde will be in August of 2023.
