Uranus is often dubed as the planet of disruption — but it’s also the planet of freedom, progress, and living true to yourself. When Uranus goes retrograde in Taurus on August 24th, consider it a sticky note from the universe to honor your deepest authenticity. Whatever house Taurus occupies in your chart, it is teaching you to reclaim and reevaluate how you relate to that area of your life. For example, if Taurus is in your 4th House, it will equate to your home and/or family, and if it’s in your 10th House, it will center on your career and public roles.
Since 2018, you have been asked to engage more honestly with the Taurian parts of your life — i.e., without people-pleasing. Without flattening your uniqueness to fit inside someone else’s box. To better understand the independence that you need, and the boundaries you must set to protect it, read the freedom statement below that correlates to your rising sign.
