Yearly stargaze: retrograde Uranus in 2024 and what it will bring to your zodiac sign

Retrograde is a conventional concept accepted in astrology and means the movement of the planet “backward”. The optical effect occurs when observed from Earth. Imagine driving on a busy highway. When your car overtakes others, it seems that the lagging cars are going backward. Retrograde Uranus in a chart means strong intuition, originality, emotional extremes, and exaggeration of problems.

In 2024, Uranus will be retrograde twice – almost all of January and the second half of the year, starting on September 1st. Strange events may occur, and facts may be revealed that require a sober assessment. Comfort and financial stability will be under attack.

What is retrograde Uranus?

The planet Uranus in astrology is characterized by a stimulant symbol. She is responsible for change and imagination, gives surprise, innovation, genius, and invention, as well as destructiveness, and revolution. Uranus imparts specific characteristics to entire generations. The card indicates extraordinaryness, a free person, going ahead of the times, putting forward ideas that are ahead of the era. It is incomprehensible to the public and raises concerns.

If Uranus is retrograde at the time of birth (which happens in almost half of the cases), we can talk about a strong subjective desire for change and freedom. The planet encourages you to look for answers within yourself, and at the same time, overthrow established orders in the outside world. People with Retro Uranus are not remarkable in appearance but have original character traits. They are characterized by excessive excitability, making a mountain out of a mountain, a strong sense of intuition, and unexpectedly acute reactions to what is happening.

What does retrograde Uranus affect?

In astrology, Uranus belongs to the so-called “higher planets”. Its movement across the sky is very slow. It affects generations more than it affects each person individually. This is a source of global information that goes beyond ordinary human life. The clues that Uranus gives relate to large-scale historical and mental processes.

The influence of Uranus has a long-term perspective. The shifts that the planet brings require long-term restructuring and rethinking. Since she moves through the sign of Taurus in 2024, the lessons will primarily concern everything material, pleasure, and comfort. Since 2018, the world has been rocked by changes in the financial sector. Change is difficult to predict. Caused by Retro Uranus, they are always unexpected.

In May 2024, the conjunction with Jupiter has already marked the beginning of new structures. But with the beginning of autumn, when the planet turns retrograde, past problems may become relevant again. The retrograde period will be stressful.


  • slow down and reflect more;
  • think about your aspirations, understand your role in society;
  • accept the approach that new times dictate;
  • engage in creativity.

What not to do:

  • resist change;
  • preserving something that is collapsing does not correspond to modern trends;
  • act contrary to intuition and feelings, and rely on reason alone.
