What Does it Mean When Uranus Goes Direct?

Have you ever had a relationship with someone where it felt like you weren’t really true to who you are?

This doesn’t have to be a romantic relationship. Maybe you just felt unable to express your authentic self, for whatever reason. Most of the time, those reasons are fear-based. We worry we won’t be accepted. We worry someone will get mad at us, and on and on.

A lot of this internal stress happens when Uranus is retrograde. Uranus does all of those out-of-the-box things that we want to do or say but hold ourselves back.

When Uranus is retrograde, we hold all of those things in.

Why?

Because we worry.

However, Uranus direct gives us that little nudge we need just to let everything out. This is the main reason why Uranus direct is a good thing.

That idea you’ve meant to pitch to your boss? That commitment you’ve meant to suggest to your lover? That issue you’ve meant to address with your bestie? That new outfit or hairstyle you’ve been dying to try but have held yourself back?

This will all come out when Uranus goes direct.

The answers to “what if” arrive under Uranus direct, and this is why it can be exhilarating. Dreams actually do come true!

Your 2022 Action Plan for Uranus Direct

It’s important to bear in mind that Uranus is in “fall” when in Taurus.

This is not a huge surprise. Uranus is full of surprises, and the slow, Fixed earth sign Taurus prefers the predictable. Surprises can really get their hackles up.

So it’s important to find the balance between these two, which includes making plans and being as stable and grounded as you possibly can, saving for rainy days, and focusing on your long-term plans.

At the same time, Uranus brings truth, insight, and freedom when it turns direct, and there will be a strong desire to break free from whatever is false and lacking in authenticity.

In other words, be prepared for a few Tower Tarot card moments!

Any plans, relationships, or structures that you have carefully constructed or been planning with that earthy Taurean energy may experience a drastic shake-up or two if they have been built on false foundations.

Uranus does not tolerate falsity. If you have not been honest with yourself, Uranus will, one way or another, force you to see the truth.

With Uranus squaring Jupiter since stationing, these shake-ups can turn into blow-ups. Keep an eye on your emotions and the emotions of others!
