The Astrological Significance of Uranus
Uranus is the Great Awakener. It strengthens intuition, even if it involves rebellion, surprise, liberation and sometimes sudden changes. This ice giant is associated with electricity, lightning, and sometimes shocking events. When well managed, Uranian energy can facilitate enlightening breakthroughs. Improper handling can result in amazing failures.
Ouranos (Uranus) was the ancient Greek god of the sky – the personification of heaven. The Romans called him both Caelus and sometimes Uranus. Uranus rules Aquarius (whose co-ruler is Saturn) and carries within it a rebellious, unique, wild and unpredictable energy. It is at home in the 11th house which governs friendship, social life, groups, hopes, dreams and destiny.
Along with Neptune and Pluto, Uranus is a generational, a transpersonal, and an outer planet. This means that unless it is in strong aspect to one of one’s personal planets, it has a slightly weaker effect on people than inner planets like the Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus and Mars. (Jupiter and Saturn are the social planets, occupying a place between the personal and transpersonal planets.)
What is Uranus retrograde?
Uranus moves very slowly. It takes about 84 years to move through the zodiac, spending about seven years in each sign. Uranus goes retrograde for about five months each year (a process in which another planet appears to be moving backwards when viewed from Earth).
If you were born Uranus Rx (short for retrograde) then Uranus retrograde is usually a pretty easy time for you because you have been dealing with these energies since you were little.
Dealing with retrograde Uranus
When Uranus is retrograde, the best way to deal with the electric shock that runs through the house it’s in is to just stay flexible. It wants to charge you up and get you moving so you can do what needs to be done and it will give you the boost you need to reach your goals. Uranus Retrograde will also awaken your need to stay true to yourself. The energy of Uranus is here to break down or break through complacency. It can be cunning like a fox or coyote, but if you’re prepared for it, it’ll be less likely to hit you like a bolt from the blue and charge your soul instead.
Additionally, if you are interested in seeing where and how Uranus Retrograde will affect your horoscope specifically, you can consult an amazing astrology psychic who can help you understand what to expect from this transitional period and how to get the most out of it can do.

Whether you want to leave it all behind or strengthen your current situation, the necessary changes in your household and family life are now upon you.

It will help you banish fear and anxiety and free you to fly and show the world everything you have to give.
What is your healing gift? Uranus Retrograde in the 6th house will help you discover how to help others during your time on Earth. It will also deepen your intuitive connection with your pets. You will see that the more you open your heart to your furry friends, the closer they come to your soul.

As Uranus moves retrograde through the 9th house, you may find that you have interesting or unusual thoughts about your beliefs, particularly as they relate to religion and/or philosophy. You can start to question old ways of thinking. Also, you may find that you suddenly have the freedom to travel far away, which fills you with the rebellious spirit of wild adventure.
If you are happy with your current career, great things may lie ahead. You might get a promotion and a raise, or an opportunity to prove your leadership skills. Alternatively, you might be craving something different. Do you dream of doing something different? Uranus retrograde in your 10th house can herald the change you so desire.
With Uranus Retrograde in your 11th house, friendships can be fractured and formed in unexpected ways. You will be challenged to find new methods of social interaction and you may start dreaming of something different for yourself. If you long to help the world in some way, you’ll discover some exciting ways to do just that.
Uranus Retrograde brings forth hidden blessings here that can help you make the radical transformation you need to free yourself from long-term inner problems.

In addition, you can now also connect more strongly with Spirit.
