Latest:  Uranus retrograde:  22nd July 2014 to  22nd December 2014.

I never know if I should blurt it out or be airy-fairy about upcoming tough times. And in the end I go with the advise my HPS gave me… `Don’t hide important news.. People are adults..and they have the capacity to deal with whatever comes their way’ (event the ones who think they can’t..to most extent!)

So I’ll say this..   as Uranus now starts retrograde motion in the sign of Aries..  and will now so for about 5 months..  it’s going to get difficult for Aquarius people (because Uranus is the ruler of Aquarius)..and it will also drag Aries people through some hard times.. (because Uranus is going retro in Aries).   It’s a bit like having a guest  (Uranus) in your home who is going through a rough patch..and that will affect you and your household…no matter what.

Uranus has those good influences of being outspoken, surprises,  rebelliousness, eccentric ideas, innovation..and humanitarian drives within it  (it’s  Robin-Hood planet!) But when retrograding it shows up its unsavory side..of disruptions, chaotic behaviour, over-eccentricity, rebellion for the sake of it, shocks (rather  than  surprises).. This is what’s coming up.   Now Aries is a fiery sign..  the first sign of the zodiac..  and at times called the child phase.   Aries people are good at starting things.. but need the help of others to carry through and complete. They have the spear..but need power behind it.

The Aries-Aquarius combination of energies is a very dynamic one..  humanitarian fire, rebellious force, passion for change are all possible.. But when one of these has been given a cosmic `review’ time.. (Aquarius) that’s what the focus should be…rather than forging ahead…or tangling up others.  Otherwise both Aries & Aquarius people (those in close bonds) could ..drive each other crazy..instead of helping one anther!

Uranus entered Aries about 2 years ago (12th March 2011)..  Alas that’s when the `restless’ period started for Aries  (and a surge of energy for Aquarians).  Uranus will remain in Aries till 16th May 2018…yes another 5 more years of what they have been already experiencing in life for the past 2+ years). In that time, of course Uranus will go through several retrograde periods (5 months at a time)…so these issues will be relevant every time..  and hopefully as any deeper issues are resolved each time, it will get easier..

After all, the Stars and Planets keep giving us opportunity after opportunity..to keep improving our lives..  That’s the purpose of astrology.. to find those and make use of them.
