Acceptance births the changes to make your dreams a reality. It may be another day in the astrological year, but even so, it rises with a whisper of uniqueness as you are called to remember. Nothing ever remains the same, simply because it's not meant to. Because if it didn't, then what you dream or want to manifest would never become reality.  

Today, August 28, Uranus, the great awakener, begins its retrograde journey in Taurus's earthy and grounded sign. Uranus is the exposer of truth, ruler of shock and awe moments, and the astrological element that helps to shake you awake from your slumber of avoidance to have you embrace what is real.  




Uranus retrograde awakens you to see the reality of your life with crystal clear intensity, as you cannot look away or paint over it with a different truth. Things appear just as they are, and you are invited into acceptance. Because without approval, no profound change is possible. 


To set intentions that can ripen into beautiful changes in your life, you first need to ensure you are working with the truth, precisely what Uranus retrograde in Taurus promises to deliver. Through this new vision of yourself, your career, relationships and even life in general, you will be able to know where you may need to make adjustments so you are living in greater alignment with your divine soul contract.

Manifesting with Uranus can be done at any time of the day. Because it's a longer retrograde lasting until January 27, 2024, you can think of performing your rituals weekly or monthly. Focus on implementing as much Taurus energy as possible into your ritual through sage, ginger, parsley or the crystals representing this earth sign, such as emerald, flower agate or fire quartz. In addition, as part of your ritual or even daily practice to call upon the energy of Uranus retrograde in Taurus more profoundly, you can incorporate the essential oils of ylang-ylang, jasmine, rose and patchouli.
