Uranus Retrograde in Taurus Meaning
Personal and collective accelerated change is the theme of the astrology of 2024, and Uranus—the planet of radical evolution—plays a major role in it! In the Spring, from March 20 to May 19, Jupiter magnified Uranus’ disruption and freedom-seeking effects in the area of our charts ruled by Taurus. Whether we’re still recovering or became fascinated with what transpired for us then, now as Uranus turns retrograde, we can better integrate this change, or at least, better understand why it needed to happen. Big aha moments are on the table, especially during the dates the moon transits earth signs Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn.
At a collective level, Uranus began teaming up with the two other outer planets, Neptune and Pluto, this summer, to instigate positive collective change. Since these are the last months Pluto remains in Capricorn, its trine with Uranus will assist this process by giving a fair voice to the communities that strive to get society out of the old paradigm. By continuing to expose corruption at the highest level of the government and corporations (most likely via the Internet), Uranus will free those who suffer dictatorial suppression. The perfect example can very well be climate change activists and up-and-coming young politicians.
The sextile with Neptune in Pisces brings the same distrust in the leadership of social media and big media corporations as lies and massive manipulation are exposed during Uranus’ 2024 retrograde motion.

For a creature of habit like you, Scorpio, it’s hard to cut cords with people, as you are one to fully commit to your word.
