Countdown to Uranus Retrograde

By Holiday Mathis

August 9, 2020 6 min read

In these final days of Uranus direct, it is prudent to note the many ways in which our lives are enchanted by all that was built before we got here. Usually, what seems like immediate magic is actually the result of a long stretch of work that included hits, failed experiments and predictable wins. Keep this in mind as you go forward creating what someone in the future is likely to experience as immediate magic.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). It's not uncommon for people to claim qualities they don't possess. They may even believe their own claims. Ultimately, the way people are always shows up in how they behave. You'll predict people well this week as you observe how their words coincide with or rub against their actions.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Most moves toward happiness are simple, but when a person is already sad, it's harder to take mood-elevating actions. That's why it's essential to establish happy habits before you need them. A daily optimism practice such as writing down three reasons life is good can sustain you through many moods of life.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You'll consciously direct your mind to good thoughts, the sort that radiates through your skin and extends to the space you occupy and beyond. Good thoughts change how you see and are seen by people. Good thoughts rearrange the world to make it lovelier. All endeavors to upgrade your thinking will be worthwhile.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You'll deal in important matters and tend to what is crucial to a desired outcome. There's so much that is more important than feeling good. You will busy yourself with what is right, effective, dutiful, respectful, loving, necessary, lucrative, prudent and more.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). One way to show yourself love is to spend time with people you genuinely enjoy. The converse is also true. You don't always have a choice in the matter, but limiting your exposure to those who take special work to be around is an act of self-love. What else can you do to support and like yourself better this week?

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). It will be tricky, and yet very important, to separate different kinds of wanting. There's a kind that's tied to societal expectation; that one is dangerous. If you want a thing because you think you are supposed to, or because everyone else seems to, you will likely be strangely unsatisfied by finally getting the thing.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Look at a friendship at any given moment and what's going on might appear unfair. But this is a long game. Things will balance in a variety of ways over time. As for business, it goes the opposite way. Seek financial advice because things that seem fine in the short-term could be disadvantageous to your big picture.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). If one person gets something awesome, then it doesn't mean there's less for the next person. There's no big treasure chest of good things being doled out, only people making good things happen. There's plenty of creativity and pluck to go around. You realize this and become kinder to yourself and others.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). New experiences fly in the face of what you previously learned. It will become very obvious that you were wrong before. It is impossible to hold the same values going forward. You'll write a new way, try it on, see how comfortably it fits and make adjustments to the idea until it's one you can live inside.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). People need to feel needed. Knowing that you are essential in someone's world is motivating and fortifying. But there is also a point in which the responsibility can be burdensome. Know your limits. Get in touch with your cravings for personal space and for free time in which you can do whatever you wish.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Competition can be the thrill that brings out your best or it can induce a belittling apprehension blocking you from delivering all you can. It's all in how prepared you feel. Ultimately, perception and attitude will be the deciding factors. No matter what happens, you learn. So, there's no way you ever lose.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). This week shows you working on a puzzle of sorts. You don't have to figure out how everything fits right away, and, in fact, it will be satisfying to take your time. Get hands-on knowledge of as many elements as you can. There will be a grand and sudden moment when you'll see what you need to do to bring it together.

THIS WEEK'S BIRTHDAYS: You have a strong desire to help people see the abundant potential for wonder, excitement, love and fulfillment that is around them. So, you devote yourself to elevating others and, in the process, experience spiritual fulfillment as well as regular and raucous fun throughout the year. Bonus: a chance encounter and a story you'll be telling for years, a shot at a job you never thought you'd be going for and, in February, the equivalent of a bag of gold.
