Uranus Retrograde In Taurus & Aries: August 7, 2018 – January 7, 2019

Uranus will turn retrograde on August 7th.  In the near term, it will be one of the Six Planets Retrograde At Once.  This matters, but we need to look beyond the next couple weeks because by the end of the month, faster moving planets, Mercury and Mars will be direct. This will be a more normal situation.

What’s important here is that Uranus will turn retrograde at two degrees Taurus, August 7th, 2018. It will reach zero degrees Taurus, mid October and retrograde back into Aries on November 6th, 2018.

This is one of the reasons I have held off holding a workshop on Uranus in Taurus.  It’s because the planet is not quite situated in the sign.

Uranus will be retrograde in Aries, November 6th, 2018 until it turn direct on January 7th, 2019. It will remain in Aries until March 6th, 2019. At that point Aries will be clear of Uranus for more than eighty years.

Bottom line, it ain’t over till it’s over!  And Uranus will not be fixed in Taurus until the planet is actually fixed in Taurus!

It’s pretty interesting to consider this. Aries and Taurus represent very different things. Like love and war and slow and fast.

I expect this period to be pretty interesting. People with planets in the early degrees of the Fixed signs with get a breather here, while people will planets in the late degree of Cardinal signs should expect the unexpected.

  1. GREAT post Elsa { as usual! } — so much to ponder here and the ‘head’s up’ is certain to come in handy as well. Glad your speedy recovery allows you to continue to serve / it is MUCH appreciated always!


  2. I’m turning 62 on August 8. I have natal Uranus at 3• Leo. My Uranus square is activating. Saturn is also opposing my Venus at 2° Cancer.

  3. Agreed. I would add that Uranus going retrograde in context of the retrograde implosion basically means ‘one step forward, two steps back’. I assume the effect of all the retrogrades will only be completely lifted, when Uranus turns direct again.

  4. I turn 64 on August 25. This Uranus in Taurus opposes my Saturn in Scorpio in house 2. But it trines my Sun in Virgo (house 12)and Mars in Capricorn (house 4). Pluto is opposing my Moon, Jupiter and Uranus in Cancer in house 11.

    I am so grateful that I learned a little bit about Astrology years ago and also that I found this Elsa blog.

    There is so much going on around me and there is a lot on the go.
    For me it is very important to be humble and keep silence, and see
    where I can help. And ask for help if I need it.

    It is nice to read that there also people here my age! : – )

  5. When Uranus reaches 28 Aries it will go direct again.

    28 degrees Aries is the degree at which ST passed away. Will I have to revisit his death in a way?

  6. Expect the Unexpected? OMG! THIS WILL SLAM MY NATAL CARDINAL GRAND SQUARE: Moon 29 Aries, Uranus 29 Cancer, Neptune 25 Libra; Chiron 1 Aquarious (just barely past 30 Capricorn). What does this mean for me?

  7. Mars in my 12th H @28degrees
    Neptune in my 3rd H @28degrees
    Bm lilith in my 12th H @ 29 degrees
    Midheaven in my 9th H @ 29
    Pluto in my 1st H @ 30.
    Jupiter in my 3rd H @ 2 degrees
    North Nord @ 2 degrees in my 7th H.
    Am not so good in Astrology but i think when Uranus retrograde back in Aries i will be be back in tht bad situation as i was in the last 8 years…ughhh…can anyone tell me what to expect on my 2 degrees in my 3rd and Nor nord in my 7 H?
