Is Mercury in Retrograde???? Inquiring minds want to know! People have been asking me what’s going on… It feels a bit like Mercury Retrograde but that’s not until late September.

What’s going on right now is brought to us by Uranus, which is the higher octave of Mercury. Uranus is coming to a station on Thursday August 19. When a planet stations (which means that it looks to us on Earth as if it’s coming to a pause) we feel it’s energy more intensely.

Uranus is like a lightning bolt that shakes things up and catalyzes transformation. It can feel chaotic, unsettling, destabilizing, disorienting, and unpredictable.

Expect the unexpected! Hey, go ahead and expect a miracle!

Stay grounded as best you can, anchor into your inner peace and stability, be willing to make needed changes, trust that Higher Power is bringing about the most benevolent outcome, and be flexible when your best laid plans get a monkey wrench thrown in.

The station of Uranus happens at 14 degrees Taurus, so if you have significant placements in your birth chart at the middle degrees of Taurus, Scorpio, Leo or Aquarius, you will probably feel the influence of Uranus even more strongly.


Uranus is a catalyst. The changes it brings about might be welcome or they could be changes that make you feel uncomfortable. In the first part of this article we focused on the storm clouds. Now let’s focus on the rainbow…

If you’ve been feeling stuck in some area of your life, bored by your usual routine, and tired of the status quo, then Uranus’ lightning bolt may bring the BREAKTHROUGH you’ve been waiting for. Uranus might be just the ticket to FREE you in some area of your life. It can free you to be your authentic self…Liberate you from old patterns…Bring needed movement…And open you to possibilities you never imagined possible.

SHIFT HAPPENS… and that can be a good thing!
