Uranus Retrograde in your Natal Chart
As one born under this influence, you are no stranger to projects that backfire on themselves. In fact, you see things come and go on such a regular basis that there is a danger of you becoming jaded. What often happens is that when you start embarking on a series of changes, eventually you find yourself back to square one where you started from.
Inside, you’re keenly and even painfully aware of the fact that new doesn’t always equate to different. Your lightning quick mind can almost anticipate a counterpoint for every point made. Perhaps that’s why there are times that you seem to agonize over your choices, actions and decisions. On the downside, this influence can make you seem indecisive as you needlessly ponder over matters and complicate them. To avoid being too caught up in your imagination, it is of utmost importance that you apply your thoughts to acquiring hands-on experience instead.
