What the cards have to say about Uranus going retrograde in Aries today

Hello Beautiful Souls,

Today’s post is slightly different from the rest of the days because today an important planetary shift is about to take place. Uranus, the planet of rebellion, innovation, and sudden upheavals is about to go retrograde in the fiery sign of Aries for the next six months. The cards today were mainly drawn with the intention to bring guidance to us about this shift.

Retrograde phases are known to create disruptions most times (Take Mercury retrograde for instance) and Uranus is no different and can be a trouble maker. The cards are indicating that we may experience sudden changes and witness shocking surprises during this phase along with the temptation to be drawn towards those things which are not good for us. Think of the snake in the garden of Eden offering you that apple.

With Aries, a planet that is known for being fiery and hot-headed, you will need to be mindful of your temper and the need to act on impulse. Care will need to be taken while traveling and using automobiles as one can be prone to injuries as well.

On the plus side, Uranus also represents innovation. So get ready to see some new inventions come to life during this phase. You may even feel more driven to question the status quo and rebel against something that is restricting and old. And because retrogrades internalize the energy, these changes and innovations are most likely to occur within you.

Since we have the Judgement card alongside the 5 of cups, I believe the message here for us is to be open to change (I know, I know… this can be a hard thing to do at times). Know that the inevitable will come to pass and what is not meant for you is more likely to exit from your life during the next six months, not always in a pleasant manner with a kiss on your cheek. But, these changes and upheavals will give you a chance to re-examine your life and life choices more closely so that you can let go of behavior, patterns, and stuff that has thus far worked against you. Think of this as review time.

Interestingly, Uranus is known as The Great Awakener and Judgement card in Tarot also brings an awakening of sorts where one is hit by this sudden epiphany which acts as a game changer or a turning point in life. The next six months are important for all of us and we will experience a deep change on some level in some area of our life depending on where Uranus is placed in our natal chart.

Now, coming to the advice bit, first things first, stop crying over spilled milk. Yes, strange things happen to us in life sometimes which can create a sense of loss and sorrow but mine for the lessons and work on moving forward. You may also witness the psychotic side of some people coming to surface. Extroverts may feel more introverted and vice versa. But know that what is meant for you will not be taken from you. Avoid too much fixation on the past. We’re talking innovation here. There’s a new life, a new goal, and new beginnings that await you.

We also have the Dragon’s Lair card in reverse. Some things are not good for you and you probably know it too. Some paths are too dangerous and may lead to a dead-end. Some people are bad for you and you know deep down that the best thing you can do it let them go, yet you hold onto them. Some of us get an adrenaline rush by playing with fire (metaphorically speaking). Majority of the times, what is not good for you is tempting, isn’t it? Well, I have some news for you. There is no fun in sticking to that which is hurtful, harmful, and destructive to your body, mind, and soul. Be careful as such tempting offers may come calling. Pay heed to the red flags and avoid walking down those dangerous routes which you know deep within your heart will only lead to chaos in the end. Instead, change your path. Go where there is promise even though your adrenaline is pulling you in a different direction. Choose that lover who treats you well vs the one who uses and abuses you and walks away with a charming smile. Avoid taking those uncalculated risks which are clearly screaming ”DANGER” on your face.

So, is this retrograde good or bad? It’s both and it’s neither. But one thing to bear in mind is that change is not bad. Take the opportunity to learn and take stock of your life. Resolve to let go of all those things that are not good for you. Know that no matter where you are in life, you can always do better and do well. You can always start afresh and walk a brand new path.

Love, Light, and Angel Blessings

  • Mercury Retrograde/General Guidance Hello Lovely People, As today is the start of Mercury Retrograde, I wanted to draw some additional cards to do a general guidance reading for all of us. There are many articles and posts written about what Mercury Retrograde (MR) is all about and so I won’t be concentrating on that bit on this post. Please feel free to look up google or check out articles by other lovely readers and astrologers who have tons of insights on this phase. All you need to know in a nutshell is that this is not a very auspicious phase to start anything new and it is extremely important to back up important data as electronic gadgets start acting funny most times during MR. Also, review the documents you sign and focus on improving existing situations before you dive into giving birth to new ones. This retrograde cycle will last till the 5th of September. Now, where do we begin? Ah, the Ten of Pentacles. A card that lays much emphasis on home, family, security, and finances. This card is telling me that your home and loved ones could be the center of attention at this time. Situations that involve moving, renovation, family inheritance, security, insurance, pets, children, and anything related to your home could be of much importance right now and perhaps all throughout the MR phase. Pay attention to topics related to your home. Do plenty of research before you make big decisions such as purchasing a new home, property, buying life or health insurance, redoing your space, and so on. Also, watch out for communication problems that may arise within the family. Be as clear as you can and try to avoid misunderstandings. Mercury, the planet of expression and communication, when retrograde can affect our verbal and non-verbal expression. The Fairies are making their presence felt strongly in this reading and I can hear them whisper that the natural world will bring us much comfort and support at this time. Grounding will be extremely important for all of us. It may become very common for us to forget things and go off into a daydreaming state. Chances are you may lose touch with reality if you do this often and end up feeling a lot clumsier and forgetful. Keep your attention focused. Be in the ‘here and now’. You can go with the classic way of grounding yourself which is to imagine roots growing out of the soles of your feet and your base chakra and reaching the core of mother earth. And/Or, you can also complement this practice with including more earthy and rooty veggies and fruits into your diet, working with colors such as red, black, and browns, and engaging in physical exercise to keep your body healthy and active. Crystals can offer you support as well and some of my favorite go-to crystals and stones for grounding are Black Tourmaline, Boji Stones (in pair), Smoky Quartz, and Hematite. The Green Woman may have a spark of mischief in her eyes but she is also here to share with us that this period will offer us all a significant opportunity to grow and manifest. Our manifestation power is at its peak right now which means we need to be careful of what we sow as it is what we will reap.  Whatever you give your energy and thought to will come into being, rapidly. Now that we are all growing awareness of the law of the attraction and how we manifest, it is important to choose wisely what we are willing to give our energy to. At the same time, do not be disappointing if situations are not going as per your plans. Want to change a situation? Here’s what can help. Focus your energy and thoughts on what you do want and not on your fears. A ripple effect will [...]
