What does it all mean?

  • Uranus is the planet of shock, change and rebellion. He rules Aquarius. 
  • Retrograde, Uranus “appears” to be going backwards from the earth’s perspective. A good time to re-do, re-invent re-assess. 
  • Aries is action orientated, he likes to be on the go, can be selfish but also heroic. He is ruled by Mars.
  • Focus on making changes to the self, those we spend time with and the work that we do is on the agenda.  
  • Sudden change or “out of the blue” information/news can be expected.
  • Relationships will be in focus over the next few months, all of them. 
  • Finding out which relationships work and which ones don’t, is going to be the assignment. It may be a challenging time for those in bad or negative relationships as they begin to recognize they are in such relationships. 
  • A shake up is needed in all and any area’s of life that are not satisfying, uplifting or positive. This “shake up” may begin slowly and pick up momentum as the months go by. Making way for action once Uranus turns direct again. 
  • While this may be a somewhat unsettling time for some, it is wise to take heed of the need for change, and use this time to make ready for that change. 
  • Getting our emotions sorted is the key to understanding what we need to do next. This can be done by re-assessing our future plans and taking a good long look at what we want and where we are heading.  
  • Take time to seek out trusted folk who are ready to listen and who give unbiased sound advice. 
  • Be cautious of other’s who, once they are aware of unsettling circumstances, may try to take advantage and direct you towards avenue’s only fit for their own personal agenda’s.  
  • Where your morals and ethics are concerned stay true to yourself, as you invite much needed change into your life
  • In essence this could be a Shake up and somewhat challenging period for many of us, however it could also be “just what the dr. ordered” too 🙂 …
