There is a strong stereotype that retrograde planets have only bad or even disastrous impact on people’s lives. However, this is not really so. The influence may be both positive and negative, you just need to be prepared for possible difficulties and act accordingly. 
This year, Uranus started moving backwards along the starry arch on August, 8.  Interestingly, astrologers call Uranus the planet of intuition and insights. When the 7th planet of the Solar System becomes retrograde from the point of view of an Earth observer, people’s minds undergo gradual transformation. The process of thinking itself is changing which leads to reinterpretation of facts and reappraisal of values. This interesting and important period will continue up to the end of 2018.


What positive changes will Uranus retrograde bring?

Uranus retrograde is a happy time for those zodiac signs of which this planet is an antagonist. Such signs are, first of all, Taurus, Cancer and Leo. Usually, the 7th planet’s positions on the sky don’t bring anything good to them. However, when Uranus starts moving backwards, the situation changes fundamentally. 

As a rule, Uranus provokes anxiety and diffidence in these signs, but being retrograde it makes them more self-confident and calm. Their life gets more harmonious and full, they may start new activities or business, look for new hobbies and impressions. 

If you belong to one of these signs, note that Uranus makes people more irritable and nervous. Now you have a chance to relax and think reasonably. That’s why it is high time to deal with difficult and unpleasant situations which you couldn’t cope with before.  

Uranus also makes Taureans, Cancers and Leos more sensitive and over-empathic, but when it moves backwards people born under these signs are able to concentrate on their own problems not wasting too much time on others. 

The other zodiac signs should also expect these positive changes but to a lesser degree. 


What negative influence are we to expect?

The end of 2018 is a tough period for the three star signs of which Uranus is usually a protector – Scorpio, Capricorn and Aquarius.  Being retrograde this planet will weaken some of their strengths: there may be troubles with self-development, motivation and intellect. People of these star signs should be prepared for possible misfortunes and unexpected obstacles.

In love life, Uranus retrograde causes jealousy and envy. If you are overwhelmed by such destructive feelings try to resort to reason and your will power. Remember, these emotions will do you only harm and destroy any relationships. 

People whose work is closely connected with creativity will have to find new sources of inspiration. It will be rather hard to make decisions and focus on important things, that’s why forget about new beginnings for the time being. 

Virgo, Pisces, Libra, Sagittarius, Gemini and Aries won’t experience any serious problems since Uranus is neither their antagonist nor protector. However, it may still bring some dramatic changes which will influence your whole life. We may expect a revolution in our love relationships, career, business and even attitude to life. Even if you don’t want any cardinal changes, you won’t be able to avoid them in case they are in store for you. So, fasten your seat belts, relax and get ready for “hot” autumn and the end of the year. 

And one more thing: Uranus retrograde may deprive you of luck, that is why any gambling or breach of law may lead to catastrophic consequences.
