While in Aries, Uranus began his retrograde cycle on July 5th, lasting until December 5th. On August 13th, Uranus returns to Pisces until March 11, 2011, where he retraces his steps back to 26 degrees of Pisces. Upon leaving Pisces next March, he won't transit Pisces again for approximately another 84 years.

Taken from a previous post:

Uranus represents the idealist, reformist and non-conformist in all of us who seek to improve the established and antiquated for the innovative and progressive that are more suitable for present-day situations. Uranus is the awakener of the zodiac ... stirring the pot ... rocking the boat. When he decides something needs change, he will do so, radically, shockingly, and at any cost -- a revolution or even chaos.

Since Uranus entered Pisces (interconnectedness), we've seen a surge of social networking sites, making the world a little smaller by allowing us to connect with one another as if the other person is next door (MySpace, Facebook, Twitter) and an increase in socially responsible and humanitarian causes websites/services, offering the chance to make an impact through a click of a button (,, These are generalizations, but mentioned to illustrate the societal/global influence of Uranus' transit.

On a personal level, Uranus is like a rebellious inner child that resides in all of us -- seeking freedom, protecting the unique individual, brainstorming ideas on how to create and implement the changes required for forward movement. When Uranus is retrograde, the focus/energy of this rebellious inner child turn inward. How do I attain/retain the personal freedom I seek/I've lost? How do I gain/regain my individuality? How do I exact the changes necessary to move me closer to my goals?

With this Uranus retrograde, allow your rebellious inner child to run free, think without boundaries, and conceptualize original ideas that bring you closer to achieving your objectives. In Pisces, Uranus' genius is expressed through Piscean traits. At best, Pisces is gentle, intuitive, sensitive, compassionate, insightful, and visionary. At worst, Pisces is confused and lost in its own imaginative world. With Pisces, there is a fine line between illusion and delusion, insight and deceit, love and sacrifice.

For much of this year, Jupiter has remained close to Uranus and, at times, even trailed right behind him. This continues through to early 2011. Jupiter, who is also currently retrograde, will return to Pisces next month on September 9. Jupiter is the bringer of hope, benefits, happiness and opportunities. On September 18, a conjunction between Jupiter and Uranus perfects in Pisces at 29 degrees; then again on January 4, 2011 at 27 degrees in Pisces. Prior to these upcoming meetings, Jupiter and Uranus blended energies at Aries Point in Aries on June 8.

Around December 2010 to January 2011, Uranus and Jupiter will come ever so close to a conjunction again, in a similar way they fed off each other's energy this past May. While Jupiter and Uranus walk through Pisces side by side, they will also each be in a tight semi-sextile with Neptune. Although their alignments to Neptune do not perfect, they do get close enough to make an impact. Jupiter represents our ideals and opportunities. Neptune symbolizes our spirituality and enlightenment. Together with Uranus, they awaken, enlighten, excite and promote change and growth. On January 4, 2011, a third and final conjunction between Jupiter and Uranus perfects at 27 degrees in Pisces.

With Uranus and Neptune also in mutual reception, there should be an easier flow of energy with each other and what they each need to accomplish. This meeting (December 2010 to January 2011) may bring back memories/issues of when their semi-sextile perfected around October 2009. Some things/events may have brought understanding or perhaps the weight of a thing/person/situation's significance was made crystal clear back then. This "understanding" or seeing the depth of things may happen again during this upcoming Jupiter-Uranus-Neptune aspects. The timing for their alignments are indeed significant with a Solar Eclipse in Capricorn occurring on January 4, 2011.

Semi-sextiles are usually considered of minor importance by many astrologers. But I thought it might be worth a mention anyway, since this is a semi-sextile between two outer, slower moving planets that make a reprise of a previous perfected alignment plus, it also occurs during a Lunar Eclipse.

What significance do planets, signs, and houses have in astrology? Planets have the function, the job to do. The style/manner they will use get that job done is defined by the zodiac sign they occupy. Where in our life the job gets done is determined by the house the planet occupies/transits. So, when Mars (aggression) is in Aries (bold), he is more assertive than when he is in Cancer (sensitive). When traveling through the 10th house (professional life), he may bring his confidence and motivation in matters relating to our career. While in the 11th house (friendships), we may be more inclined to having our social calendar packed with activities. Having the foresight for what may be coming up or receiving confirmation on what may be happening now are ways astrology can be beneficial ... as above, so below.
