Uranus is the ruling planet of the zodiac sign of Aquarius. For long, our solar system ended with the planet Saturn and when the planet Uranus was discovered it became an awakener to behold, it brought about ripples and shook the world of astrology. Uranus is said to bring surprises, wakes us up and gives us a different perspective of life. It makes us quite restless and apprehensive.
Like all planets, when Uranus is retrograde it is less predictable and behaves more erratically. Uranus goes retrograde once every year and stays retrograde for about 6 months at a stretch. When Uranus retrogrades, the effect would be more internal than external. It brings about sudden forced and extreme changes around, in our mind, life or heart. It asks us to tread a new path altogether far away from our past or current journey.
