Uranus Stationary Retrograde at 24 Taurus

Uranus Stationary Retrograde at 24 Taurus

On August 28, Uranus goes stationary retrograde at 24 Taurus, so we're already feeling this major sea change in our Taurus sector!

This is a major phase shift when we begin to review what has revolutionized and/or awakened in the Taurus part of our charts. This one has brought us to a new mobilization where we need to demonstrate skill in pressured situations as we stand on the threshold of our Uranian review of the shadow zone between 24 Taurus and 20 Taurus. Our review begins with the technique of emotional or social confirmation which will help us conquer inhibitions leading us back to a degree of ecstatic experiences and lightness of Being.

Uranus represents our eternal ability in the NOW to individualize our lives and consciousness. It is the Divine Fool, forever stepping off the precipice into the unknown, a Revolutionizer within us that is directly connected with Spirit. It shows us how to live in a truly free way, not reacting to the world’s inertia, but instead moving into the eternally renewed adventure where we are forever free to explore, discover, and revolutionize our lives and consciousness.

Uranus is the Higher Law, Jupiter is the guide out of old ways into greater futures. Uranus helps us break free, break out, and break through the binding force Saturn represents as our “Ring Pass Not.” Uranus is Divine Wisdom, working together with Jupiter and Saturn to perfect our personalities so we might become vehicles for bringing Spirit to matter in our own unique way. I discuss the dance Jupiter, Saturn and Uranus do in our lives to bring us to spiritual adulthood fully living our higher purpose in my book Saturn: Spiritual Master, Spiritual Friend where you can find more about this process.

What Has Uranus Awakened in 2017-2023?

Uranus now begins to re-trace ground it’s covered since May 2023 when it entered the third decan of Taurus. This is the Capricorn decan, ruled by Saturn with an extra dose of Saturn. Since then, we’ve explored how to individualize in the span of experience from 20 to 24. Now that it’s retrograde, we will take a new look at what Uranus has awakened in us since then.

2018 and 2019 were a transitional period, as Uranus danced between the end of Aries and the beginning of Taurus during this time. In 2017, we began to awaken to our part to play in “the Cosmic Choir.” It was activated in April 2018 when Uranus again transited 29 Aries, went SRX at 3 Taurus, and retrograded back to the degree of “the Cosmic Choir,” where it went direct in January 2019, providing us a platform from which we can sing our part in the larger harmony. Whatever was awakened during that time has been developed through the North Node in the first eight months of 2023

That brought us to “a new quality of being rendering the old patterns obsolete” in 2020. We “returned to ancient sources of Being” while getting glimpses of the future. We learned to use knowledge and skill to anticipate what was coming, an ability to create happiness in dark hours, and a dedication to a greater work.

The last half of 2020 gave us a look back at the themes which were awakened in 2019-2020. 2021 saw Uranus move from 7 to 15 Taurus, and then retrograde from 15 back to 11 Taurus. 2022 saw it move forward from 11 to 19 Taurus, retrograding back to 15 in January 2023. That completed a review of the actional-material level of “Confirmation,” and now we get to review the emotional and social level of “Confirmation.”

From this retrograde station at 24 Taurus, it will retrograde back through its “shadow zone” between 20-24 Taurus, giving us a different way to view the Uranian developments set into motion in May. This will last through January 2024, when it goes SD at 20 Taurus, launching its penultimate year in Taurus as Uranus heads toward its entry into Gemini in July 2025.

Uranus occupies its stationary degree from now through September 10. As I mentioned earlier, 24 Taurus is the technique of the emotional-social “face” of the second half of Taurus. From mid-September through late January, it retrogrades back through 23, 22, and 21 Taurus until it goes stationary direct at 20 Taurus.

The Sabian Symbol for the Uranus Retrograde Station

The symbol for the 24th degree of Taurus is “A mounted Indian with scalp locks.” In the original Jones class notes from The Astrology of Personality, Rudhyar says this is a degree of “Forceful intrusion of elemental energies in over-conscious selfhood,” “Return to primal values,” and “Conquest of inhibitions.”

In The Astrological Mandala, he goes on to say that this degree symbolizes “the aggressiveness of human instincts when fighting for their earthly base of operation,” where we find aggression and force “are basic components of human nature at the level of the emotions and of a deep-seated identification with a particular culture” which sees those who are different as potential enemies. I have found this degree as representing the expertise needed to be an administrator of others’ energies, or perhaps a place where we find we need to defend our life mission, and/or see the broader context of our life mission.

He states this symbol confirms our difference from other people, where our need for “differentiation of human behavior and collective values is still strong.” Beware of those who are excessive in their use or show of force! He says this degree falls in the Span of Enjoyment, Act of Differentiation, and Scene of Confirmation on the Emotional-Social level.

Dr. Jones offers this is a degree of “pride in personal prowess,” suggesting “an exceptional capacity for gaining and administering authority.” He states we can find an appreciation of potential in nature, and our “senses as they can be brought to the full service” of our aspiration and ambition. He says “the conquest of an enemy becomes not so much a momentary supremacy over him as an acquisition and subsequent use of his particular genius.”

He offers us the keyword COMMAND. He states that when operating in a positive manner, this degree “is an unimpeachable control over life through a discipline of the self and its powers.”

From this symbol we see the theme of this Uranus threshold state involves some form of command and control over nature or others’ expertise and skills, but we are also cautioned to be watchful of those who are violent, or unnecessarily brutal in their aggressiveness. This period will awaken a new energy about what confirms us, our skills, and/or our life mission in a way suited to our individuality, and can do what we must to stabilize those skills that make our social or emotional existence more secure. We now get a 5 month review of our process of our “command and control” techniques to see another facet of our individuality.

What To Expect For the Rest of 2023

This retrograde station begins a Uranian phase of looking at past and current ways we asserted ourselves, or how we had to counter someone else’s aggressiveness. This will help us review how something of our worth has been confirmed in the past few months, as well as the “new times, new ways, and new beginnings” promised by the “message from Spirit” we began to get in June. We will again take a look at what’s relevant to us personally in our society and culture in late November and early December before settling into the January 2024 SD degree’s promise of “ecstatic states of consciousness” and “lightness and breadth of Being.”

We’re all awakening to a new emotional awareness or social expression. Some will get concrete rewards between now and March 2024, while others will enjoy the possibilities of the new life which began in June. This 2023 awakened span of 15-24 Taurus will in some way be the source of expanded promise in March-April 2024 when Jupiter crosses this area of Taurus.

By January 2024 when Uranus goes direct, we’ll stand on a platform of experiencing a much higher state of awareness and “breadth of Being” which will lead us to a major expansion. We’ve experienced a new spontaneity of expression since last Summer, so continue to take command of your genius, accept the rewards you have coming, and greet the coming of a new day in a new land with a new view and understanding. Let go of everything which has become obsolete to enjoy a new power and new potential. What awakens in 2023 will lead to the rejuvenation and renewal coming the second half of 2024 and first half of 2025!
