Although Uranus goes retrograde today, I wouldn’t make a big ta-doo about it for individuals. When Mercury (as it does tomorrow), Venus or Mars goes retrograde, it’s a bigger deal for most individuals because these planets are more personal (based on their visible distance from the Earth.) It’s different for Uranus. Unless Uranus is close to a planet or point in your birth chart, you might not “feel” the retrograde the same way.
For instance, I’m fairly sensitive to the transits of Uranus because the Uranus I was born with, my “natal” one, is in one of the best seats in my chart–my 7th house. So I usually “feel” some measure of significance and challenge with relationships during that time. It also helps that this retrograde will bring some side-eye to my Saturn in a few months. That usually suggests some revolutionary (and possibly satisfying) changes in one’s life. I’m game for that. (Or so I think.)
However, we can expect some setbacks and revisions in a more global context. As I’ve written elsewhere, Uranus is a wake up call for the Uranus in Scorpio generation. So we can expect more talk about the disparity between the have and have-nots. We might also feel the general shocks of rebellion. Lynn Koiner does talk about how this could affect people who were born with Uranus retrograde as well.
But a retrograde that doesn’t hit a particular planet or point in your chart, generally, is not as powerful or eventful. If you know your chart, then you probably have a sense of when and maybe how a retrograding planet will manifest in your life. If you don’t know your chart, then you might consult with an astrologer to get a grip on that. Of course, ahem, you could start with this one, but you can go to one who resonates with you or who has been recommended to you.
