Understanding Transits and Retrogrades of Uranus, Neptune and Pluto

The in retrograde motion is an illusion of the planet moving backwards based on the placement of the planet in relation to the Earth and the Sun. Each of these planets retrograde motion approximately once per year as the Sun is in a sign that is opposing (or close to opposing) that particular planet's transiting sign. Uranus typically retrogrades about 155 days. Neptune's retrograde period typically is about 160 days and Pluto's retrograde frame is approximately 165 days. The retrogrades for Pluto, Neptune and Uranus are generally about 40 percent to 45 percent of the year. When the planet is done transiting in retrograde motion, it will station briefly then resume the transit in direct motion.

The Astrology Promise of Uranus in Retrograde

Uranus' influence is the epitome of "expect the unexpected." Regardless of the direction of Uranus' transit, we must navigate the sudden changes that get thrown out. Some of us thrive on routine and consistency, and when Uranus has game, we feel like we're thrown into a proverbial blender. The sudden changes are actually subdued somewhat while Uranus' transit is retrograde. The period of Uranus retrograde allows us chance to think a little about our reaction to changes. It also gives us a chance to rethink and organize our need for change. Many groups formed while Uranus is direct, actually find more structure and organization after Uranus has begun retrograde motion.

The Astrology Promise of Neptune in Retrograde

Neptune's influence is considered to be creative, dream based and spiritual. We tend to walk around a bit more hopeful and optimistic while Neptune's transit is direct (moving forward). We may be more optimistic because we have an ideal or a fantasy that we hope to achieve. When Neptune's transit retrogrades, our dreams and ideals may start to drip away as reality forces us to come to terms with any portion of the dream that is based on fantasy. We will need to rethink our creative side, as well, since we may start to experience dissatisfaction with our current path or creative focus.

The Astrology Promise of Pluto in Retrograde

Pluto's influence is considered to be evolving, regenerative and transforming. When Pluto's transit is direct (moving forward) we tend to change from the "outside" in as the situations around us typically force us to evaluate our predicaments. When Pluto's transit retrogrades, we reverse this process to an inside-out evolution. Our internal forces seem to break down or redirect us so that we can see our own need for change rather than being forced into the process by others.

To adjust the times for your timezone, add or subtract the number of hours your timezone is from 0 UT. If you live in the western hemisphere (mostly the Americas) you would subtract the number of hours from the time shown on the table. Most of the eastern hemisphere will add hours to the time shown in the table.
