-- May Sarton

When the planet of breakthroughs and unexpected shake-ups goes retrograde on July 17, we get a huge push from within. The raw, masculine energy of Aries that wants things yesterday is electrified by the presence of future-forward Uranus. We have all been breaking some serious new ground in our lives, rebelling against anyone and anything threatening to diminish our expression of our unique "I am" principle.

Now is the time to turn the energy inward and go deeper into what makes us authentically independent. If we're not clear on who we are and what we want -- independent of the expectation of others -- an inner war could ensue. This particular phase of Uranus going retrograde in Aries is extremely loaded due to the fact that the entire phase (until December) brings Uranus in conflict with powerful Pluto. This energy is incredibly explosive as every psychological trigger gets exposed, pushed and pulled.

Look to where Aries is in your birth chart to see where your inner warrior is at the ready. Next, look to where Capricorn is in your birth chart to see where you are undergoing a very extensive evolutionary process of unearthing new layers of integrity.

The fight against external authority figures telling us what to do is now being directed inward where we must honor our inner infant screaming for its needs for independence and "now-ness" rather than being subjected to our internal tyrants with endless lists of "should" or rules that only lead to repression and shaming.

We are bucking our own outworn psychological and patriarchal systems now. Uranus retrograde in Aries insists that we wake up to our inner primal scream and stop giving our power away to others in any way, shape or form. Fight the good fight to truly live and move from your most authentic and raw self.
