Your Uranus Retrograde Horoscope Is Here, But It's Not What It Seems

Uranus is one of my favorite planets in the solar system. Revolutionary, freedom-loving, and totally unconventional, it's no wonder the rebel planet also rules the sign of the eclectic water bearer Aquarius. So what exactly happens when a planet like Uranus stations retrograde? Before I reveal your Uranus retrograde 2019 horoscope, let's take a closer look at this celestial entity and its role in the heavens. The phrase, "Expect the unexpected," is 100 percent Uranian and this is because you never really know what you're going to get with the rebel planet.

Each of the heavenly bodies is incredibly diverse, but I have to give credit where it's due and Uranus is, by far, the most extraordinary. Electric and innovative, Uranus is the planet of chaos, rebellion, and unexpected change. This super-charged planet governs all things futuristic, progressive, and unusual. It sparks unforeseen change and, at its greatest potential, a revolution. Ever wonder why those born under the sign of Aquarius are so inventive and freakish in the best way? Nothing is coincidence. Uranus is scientific, progressive, and as swift as lightning; hence Aquarius' love for technology and brilliant insight. What can I say? Uranus is so stellar.

On Aug. 11, the rebel planet will station retrograde until January 2020, in the slow-moving sign of Taurus. Retrogrades are for reflecting, revisiting, and reassessing situations, but not to worry because Uranus retrograde will be nothing like Mercury retrograde. During this retro cycle, Uranus' pizzazz is turned inward, which will, in turn, push you to rebel against what no longer serves you. Taurus is the money you spend, your sense of security, and values. So it's safe to say you're going to see a revolution in all things related to money and currency.

BTW, in case you haven't noticed, the collective is already experiencing the effects of Uranus in Taurus with payment installments such as Afterpay and Klarna, not to mention cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin.

Anyway, here's what Uranus retrograde in Taurus has in store for you, according to your zodiac sign:
