 Mercury is in retrograde at 02 Sco 33' 52"

Even people who aren’t even remotely familiar with astrology have heard of this one. We’ll unpack that in just a minute. Mercury is also Hermes, considered the emissary of the Gods but also, something of a trickster. Ruling Virgo and Gemini, this planetary influence usually denotes something of an adaptable nature but also, a very curious, very chatty sort of feel.

 Mars is in retrograde at 17 Ari 37' 18"

Mars is another one that is understood pretty well by way of a scientific fact. Though we often talk about you know, colonies on Mars and such, these have not ended well, usually. Humanity’s been trying to get up close and personal with the red planet since about 1960 or so and often, these things fail before they even get started. In fact, in 1999, the most infamous $193 million failure was due to some confusion when well, some were using the superior metric system and others were not. Since the turn of the century, however, only 1 of 12 missions has failed but historically: there’s been about a 50/50 change something’s going to go totally sideways. Kinda what you get for naming the moons Deimos and Phobos, really- panic and fear don’t usually make for great insights.

 Uranus is in retrograde at 08 Tau 55' 07"

Uranus smells bad.

Look, I had to get that out of the way. It probably will not be the last but, if you have ever known an Aquarius, wordplay involving this mispronunciation is absolutely appropriate. Uranus rules Aquarius, by the way (if Aquarius would ever admit to anything ruling it). This is another one of those outer planets we can’t really see without some help. Discovered in 1781 by William Herschel, it again denotes things nobody really wants to admit but everyone knows are there. Like that odd smell in the open office. Is someone cooking fish in the microwave again or did you just indulge in a milkshake at lunch when you knew you probably shouldn’t? Who knows?

 Neptune is in retrograde at 18 Pis 28' 42"

As the farthest known planet from the Sun in our solar system, Neptune, the 8th planet’s astronomical description is entirely appropriate to its astrological. It’s the densest giant planet and it moves very slowly. In astrology, it rules Pisces and is considered the planet of deception, spirituality, illusion, and addiction. It’s not all bad, though- as with other things, the flip sides are the good sides and intuition, dreams, sensitivity, mercy and compassion also fall under its auspices.

Five Things as Uranus Enters Retrograde

As Uranus enters retrograde in Taurus, here are five things to take into consideration through next January when it will return to its normal path. In a nutshell, Uranus is pushing you to break with the comfortable, so take these points with an eye towards making some progress on things you've just let slide until now. Let Uranus do its job and ride the wave (and be prepared for any upheavals).

Five Things to Consider...

Sudden Changes Can Lead to Long Term Goals 

Complacency is the enemy of progress, and with Uranus retrograde, things can get a little wobbly. Take advantage of this and be prepared to pivot. Be nimble and take advantage of the opportunities as they're presented. Don't let rapid changes take you by surprise.

Higher Self-Awareness Means even the Clueless might have a Clue! 

Hey, sometimes even the idiots get something right, especially when a consistent flow of random events give them plenty of options from which to chose - all creatively interesting. While you can take advantage of this (and we recommend you don't tell anyone), perhaps it's more appropriate to simply be aware that the office doofus might get some kudos for a while when they get lucky. Just smile, give a Nancy Pelosi clap, and say, "well played."

Having Fun in New and Interesting Ways is a Thing!

Between the Moon and Venus's influences, this retrograde should remind you that finding fun in new and interesting things should be something to keep in mind. Try that new bistro. Accept that invitation. Listen to the new band. Go to Burning Man!

Upheaval is in the Air. Are you Ready for the Zombie Apocalypse?

Want an insight into someone's thought process? Ask them what they'd do if they had a 24 hour heads-up on the zombie apocalypse. Me? I'm headed for Costco! A large building made out of cinderblocks and big metal doors filled with enough supplies to last years. What's your plan?

Technology Might Fritz - Even More than a Mercury Retrograde!

Mercury is known for the havoc it causes to technology, but don't forget that Uranus rules when it comes to electricity, and that's always something that can ruin your day. Especially now, with solar activity at a minimum, Uranus's influences can be significant. When the solar wind is light, cosmic rays are able to penetrate much further into the solar system, affecting life and systems at a much higher level than during active solar periods.

Indeed, this is one of the main focus areas here at ChipWitch, and we'll have a lot more to say about this as time goes on - and be sure to check Retrograde Today every day, as we monitor solar metrics in real time!
