Venus in Leo square retrograde Uranus in Taurus 15th September 2020

Venus at 10 degrees 18 minutes Leo is square retrograde Uranus at 10 degrees 18 minutes Taurus at 3.30 pm GMT 4.30 pm BST 15th September 2020.

Tension from unexpected sources can resurface which is uncomfortable and can catch you off guard. In relationships you may realise it’s time to shake things up a bit and put forward what you want from them. Sure this could be seen as unnecessarily rocking the boat, but sticking with what is mundane and predictable isn’t accepted at the moment. Also there could be events that test the durability of relationships, so if a relationship is worth fighting for then fight for it. Where money is concerned it’s best not to spend on luxuries as there could be a sudden demand on your finances to provide what is needed or has to be paid for. This may be boring and dampen your excitement about buying what makes you feel good now, but it will be appreciated in the near future.

Sun in Virgo trine retrograde Uranus in Taurus 2nd September 2020

The Sun at 10 degrees 34 minutes Virgo is trine retrograde Uranus at 10 degrees 34 minutes Taurus at 2.09 pm GMT 3.09 pm BST 2nd September 2020.

Attending to your own interests down to the smallest detail possible can put you in a strong position, if there are unexpected events that require a practical response. Common sense solutions to personal issues that have been subject to over-thinking can arise from out of nowhere. Rules can be broken but it’s important to be clever about how it’s done. A slight restraint of progress can turn out to be beneficial, as this prevents mistakes that would disrupt your sense of order.

Mercury at 10 degrees 39 minutes Virgo is trine retrograde Uranus at 10 degrees 39 minutes Taurus at 3.18 pm GMT 4.18 pm BST 25th August 2020.

A pleasant wakeup call may arrive during this transit. It will act as a remedy for mental stagnation or boredom. The influence of this transit is very helpful in bringing forth practical solutions to dilemmas or issues that have been puzzling you lately, where routine solutions that usually work haven’t done the job. A favourable result is achieved by being methodical and observant. Plans can be made for the near future to prepare for making progress.

Venus at 10 degrees 41 minutes Cancer is sextile retrograde Uranus at 10 degrees 41 minutes Taurus at 7.28 pm GMT 8.28 pm BST 18th August 2020.

A welcome change from your usual routine may arrive when you least expect, but as Venus is in Cancer and retrograde Uranus is in Taurus the fun you have is more likely to happen at home than far away. Now is not the moment when you want to be willing to accommodate those who bore you. New friends can be found who you have an emotional connection with, who you may have previously overlooked because they don’t often make an appearance anywhere near you. There is a desire for newly discovered freedom to live your life as you please, and as far as you’re concerned the restrictions of convention can step aside. A temptation to give into an urge to rebel can be good for you right now if your instinct tells you it’s the best option for you. Fortunately it won’t go too far where you won’t otherwise find yourself in an uncomfortable situation.

Uranus in Taurus turns retrograde 15th August 2020

Uranus turns retrograde at 10 degrees 42 minutes Taurus at 10.59 am GMT 11.59 am BST 15th August 2020. Uranus remains in retrograde motion until it turns direct at 6 degrees 43 minutes Taurus at 6.46 am GMT 14th January 2021.

Reform and technological advances are held back by financial or practical restrictions. Plans for alternative options for investment or increasing financial resources can be sought or created, but not initiated until Uranus turns direct. Those who have a perverse motive to cause instability to what is reliable and stable could find doing so is not as straight forward as they perceived it to be. Those who desperately need change to gain freedom will struggle to get it. However, it’s not impossible; although to make progress it’s a case of two steps forward and one step back. During this retrograde phase it’s better to plan for revolution instead of initiating it.

Mercury in Leo square Uranus in Taurus 10th August 2020

Mercury at 10 degrees 41 minutes Leo is square Uranus at 10 degrees 41 minutes Taurus at 12.52 pm GMT 1.52 pm BST 10th August 2020.

Being headstrong and unyielding in your opinions does not help you to withstand revolutionary progressive or changes that would be a lot easier to deal with if you would be willing to change your mind set. This can be an exciting time, although there may be cause for anxiety too, due to sudden and potentially shocking occurrences responsible for a deviation of plans that took a long time to prepare. Acts of rebellion will cause an immense amount of disruption and could be messy. Confidence in the strategy to be used is misplaced, but great strides can be made when least expected.

The Sun at 10 degrees 37 minutes Leo is square Uranus at 10 degrees 37 minutes Taurus at 11.19 am GMT 12.19 pm BST 2nd August 2020.

There could be experiences during this transit that build strength of character by testing courage and persistence. Confidence and pride may suffer a knock or two due to how you respond to erratic or unexpected changes in circumstances. These changes raise problems that require practical solutions and common sense. It’s best not to be headstrong, or even arrogant enough to assume you know how to and are capable of resolving this on your own terms.

Mercury in Cancer sextile Uranus in Taurus 22nd July 2020.

Mercury at 10 degrees 28 minutes Cancer is sextile Uranus at 10 degrees 28 minutes Taurus at 8.25 pm GMT 9.25 pm BST 22nd July 2020.

Creating new and inventive solutions to resolve old problems and dilemmas should help you to break through the pattern for sticking with what you know and have been reluctant to change. This transit can act as a great opportunity to get back in touch with friends and family who provided or can provide stability in your life. There is a chance they feel the time is right to contact you when you least expect it. Finding people who you have an emotional connection with won’t be hard, but you have to make the effort to find them. They may introduce you to people who can be relied upon, or who are of practical assistance, to help you with what you haven’t encountered before.

Sun in Cancer sextile Uranus in Taurus 1st July 2020.

The Sun at 9 degrees 52 minutes Cancer is sextile Uranus at 9 degrees 52 minutes Taurus at 6.07 am GMT 7.07 am BST 1st July 2020.

What you have experienced from the past will help you to keep on an even keel, if there is a process of upheaval with the aim of building as much stability as you can for your future. This is done with the intention of defending yourself from what can happen if there are circumstances that are out of your control where the outcome is difficult to predict. Confidence in the strength of your instinctive behaviour combined with a dose of stubbornness can be used constructively to go against the grain of what is expected from you, to act in your best interest.

Retrograde Mercury at 9 degrees 52 minutes Cancer is sextile Uranus at 9 degrees 52 minutes Taurus at 10.14 pm GMT 11.14 pm BST 30th June 2020.

Dilemmas and complicated issues that have been playing on your mind an affecting you emotionally may be resolved all of a sudden. The chances are the solution has been under your nose all along. Newly discovered methods of discussing your feeling without exposing your vulnerabilities unnecessarily give a new sense of freedom from the restraints you thought you couldn’t release. The need to cling onto ideas that are comfortable to maintain is shaken up, but this won’t be uncomfortable or alarming; actually it will go better than expected.
