Uranus officially goes Retrograde on August 3, 2017 at 1:31 am ET! 

Expect to have some powerful personal revelations and big changes this week! We are also likely to notice much of the happenings in the world around us feel more erratic, possibly even irritating. Getting away from excess racket and the more yang energy, to have some time for yourself to decrease stress levels is recommended. Time spent internalizing your thoughts and reflecting will bring about much more insight than getting caught up in a busy world.

It's also likely that you won't like feeling restricted. Obstacles in your way can feel extra irritating now.

A great question to ask yourself during this Uranus Retrograde is, "What does Freedom mean to you?"



However, because of the strong symbolism emphasized in the sky this week, I will be talking a lot more about the bigger picture of our world in this Overview, particularly a more political point of view. For your more personal perspective, read your horoscope for your Sign linked below.

If you’ve been following my horoscopes for a while, you’ll be familiar with how the contrasts of Jupiter, Uranus and Pluto have been representative of large changes in our collective and individual lives. These major planets have been at odds with one another for many months in the Cardinal signs signifying powerful shifts towards new beginnings that impact our identities and political landscapes.

Jupiter in Libra has shown us great emphasis and scrutiny of the media and journalism. The differences between beliefs and worldviews of individuals at the grassroots level contrasting with the power structures of the higher echelons of society - the political and corporate world - have been in large focus. The concept of Fake News has been a big eye opener for many, and as trust issues escalate on all sides, the world is becoming more disenfranchised and skeptical about how the big players in society have been playing power games.

Uranus is a big focus this week, but before I get to that I just want to remind you that...

Venus enters Cancer on Monday, July 31, 2017 at 10:54 am ET.

Venus in Cancer can be quite pleasing for relationships with family and those close. The home becomes more important as a go-to place for shared love. Enjoying the warmth of cooking delicious foods with loved ones can be a saving grace and a path to emotional comfort. Appreciation of mothers and motherly types is well suited now as well. This is a time of great inspiration for decorating and gardening around your home to make your space more beautiful and comfortable.

Uranus is now close to the end of the sign of Aries, but won’t be leaving anytime soon. We still have a lot of self reflection to do. Uranus is now ready to go retrograde again.

Uranus officially goes retrograde in Aries on Thursday, August 3, 2017 at 1:31 am ET. Uranus will be retrograde until January 2, 2018!

This marks another significant, long term internal shift for us all. Our identities are changing. How we identify with the world, and what we believe about ourselves and the reality around us is ready for a change. For many, the inner rebel gets much more emphasis as a stronger personal stance takes root. Others will be reflecting on how their past self has been contributing to their future self, to motivate changes accordingly.

Information that comes up suddenly this week can lead to sudden, quick changes, and personal revelations.

The ego can gain more traction, contributing to a more divisive, disagreeable attitude towards others. With Jupiter and Pluto in the picture, the counterculture to the establishments in society, particularly media and politics, strengthens.

These times are nothing short of revolutionary. Though we are all very similar in many ways, we are also each seeing how different we are from one another.

Uranus and Jupiter will slowly be getting closer to exact opposition in the coming months.

Jupiter in Libra has been putting a strong emphasis on the contrast between truth and lies. The media has been a sensationalist circus of battles for power over the mind of viewers, and the internet and social media has been cutting deep at its roots. Essentially we have been in the throes of an information war and that’s not going to stop anytime soon. Corporate powers and interests vs. the voices of everyday citizens... it will only escalate more. The battle of law, justice and truth will only grow in complexity. These opposites, truth and lies, are on the balancing scale, being weighed. That’s what Libra does, and Jupiter here brings even more emphasis. We have also noticed how censorship and control of information has been a larger focus as well.

I know a lot of astrologers tend to only focus on the positive in Jupiter’s symbolism, as only a bestower of great gifts, abundance, prosperity and good luck, but this is a very narrow, limited, and dare I say biased point of view on Jupiter, and Jupiter does not like limits. Jupiter is Zeus in Greek mythology, King of the gods, and is much more complex and dramatic than he is given credit. Jupiter brings emphasis, which can be positive or negative. He is also ruler of laws, and so here in Libra, we can see how the pendulum has been swinging to extremes of right and wrong, truth and lies. Contrasts and differences have been emphasized significantly and will continue. Obvious biases have been through the roof. With Uranus and Pluto at odds with Jupiter, we can see that the more complicated, political, corporate, legal issues are in focus now.

Jupiter and Pluto are directly at odds on Friday, August 4, 2017. Well, this is more emphasis of the battle between the old establishment and the new. As power structures are changing, the conflicts of information grow. Pluto retrograde has a lot to do with purging out the ways of old. Propaganda on one side and the other only grows in tension, and we could see desperate moves. We live in a very complex world where egos, power and money dominate our societal structure.

Politically, people tend to get hung up on being dogmatically glued to one side or the other. What is really needed if the idealistic peace and harmony of Libra is to ever become our lived reality, is an objective, higher perspective that looks honestly at all sides of the equation for the real truth. Since biases have a stronghold on people, it’s important to be careful that the information around us isn’t manipulating our minds. It is healthy to be skeptical and to ask, “Is that really true?” instead of simply accepting the information and ideas presented to you. Does the source of information have an agenda and intention to sway you one way or the other?

The tension of political drama only increases this week, as the Moon meets up with Pluto retrograde in Capricorn, we could see a lot of emotionally charged battles of truth and lies in the government and media.

With Uranus retrograde, more people will be less trusting of what’s happening in the big picture leading to a reassessment of personal identity and personal association. As we move further into the month ahead, battles heat up. More people will feel at odds with the way the world is run. The hierarchy, rules, methods and laws will have the common, everyday citizens feeling at odds with the ways of the political, corporate, media, powers. Mars and the Sun in Leo only add to the dramatic energy.

Uranus retrograde signifies the importance of the people making choices that are in their own best interest. People will definitely be getting much more reacquainted with the effects of their egos. Some will be drawn right into the drama and conflict around them, while others, who wish to be more conscious, will first assess how their actions will make an impact before they react.

Overall, more of us will have personal epiphanies and experience more uncanny coincidences we can’t ignore.
