"Freedom" is the word to the wise as rebel planet Uranus goes retrograde from Friday, July 13 to Thursday, December 13. Now is the time to look at life from a fresh perspective, toss out the old ways of doing things and feel free to create a whole new world.
That sounds like a lot to take on, doesn't it? Well, don't be intimidated -- just remember to take baby steps over the next few months and years. We're just at the beginning of a profound period of change, and it will only happen person-by-person, one small change at a time.
Revolutionary Uranus has been in the Astrology spotlight lately, especially with the current series of epic Uranus-Pluto squares that are expected to transform the world as we know it between now and 2015. And now that Uranus is going retrograde for the next five months, we'll begin to feel the shake-up even more.
Basically, Uranus Retrograde just wants us to get real. It's time to face our fears and change the things that aren't working so we can become who we really want to be. This is true on both a personal and global scale.
So if you're in a bad relationship, stuck in a job you don't like, living in a place that doesn't feel right or spending time with the wrong people, Uranus will alert you to this in coming months. The realization may dawn on you slowly, and it may involve an uncomfortable period of anxiety -- especially with Mercury also retrograde from July 14 to August 8 -- but when you do have those epiphanies, pay attention. Make the needed changes!
Break up, make up, change jobs, move or do whatever you need to do to shake it up and move on to something better. In other words, get real about what you want, be brave and embrace your freedom to go after it.
