This week, Uranus, the planet of innovation and individuality, will station retrograde in the sign of Taurus. This retrograde will be happening until 27th January 2024, inviting us to reflect on where we need to be more radical with our approach to life and the levels of autonomy and independence we have within it.
The sign of Taurus is about practicality and sustainability, and although the spontaneous Uranus spirit may feel uncomfortable here, it doesn’t mean that it has to be difficult to deal with. Change is created with action, and revolution is a result of tearing something down and rebuilding it. And if there is one thing Taurus is good at, it is building things that last!
On Wednesday, the Full Moon will be illuminating our relationship between our mental, physical and spiritual needs, as well as the ways in which we show up and serve ourselves and others. If there are any imbalances here, they will be hard to ignore.
Being of service is an important part of being part of the collective, or part of the community of humanity. In order for things to work we have to be willing to nurture the needs of others as well as our own. But we also have to be careful that any sacrifice we make doesn’t come at too much expense. It’s a delicate balance.
