This retrograde occurs while under Pluto’s spell and during a faceoff with Mars, so passion could be explosive. Expressing yourself is always important in love, but choosing your approach is critical. Contemplate your motivation before acting out. Do you really just want to express yourself or are you finding love restrictive? Your need for independence might come with a high price if you act impulsively. One thing Uranus in Aries can’t stand is being limited by others. You’ll want freedom to make your own choices -- and that might mean breaking relationship patterns.
Retrogrades encourage reviewing things in your life, so give yourself time to rethink the choices you’re contemplating. Once you act, you can’t take it back. And remember, Uranus loves anything unconventional, so rather than making a rash decision, see if there’s a way to turn a traditional situation into something unique. Unusual choices and authentic situations are what Uranus supports, so don’t be shy about breaking love rules now.
