Uranus: Agent for Change – July 22-29 2020

If you are looking for change, radical change, not the ordinary garden variety, look to Uranus and aspects to Uranus. For the next two months, Uranus is at 10 deg, Taurus, the fixedearth sign of the zodiac.  It has already begun to slow in its progress, as we perceive it from our geo-centric position, and will continue slowly until the end of August, when it will be perceived to be reversing its progression, joining the retrograde chorus of the outer planets, also Jupiter and Saturn retrograde. It is a time of general review of the national scene, and personal involvement in the universal projects that confront us all. Uranus in Taurus is deeply ingrained in matters of health and economics. This energy is radical, and moving slowly. It will take time to resolve the issues involved. After reversing direction in August, this eccentric force will be retrograde until mid-January 2021.
