Uranus

The planet Uranus symbolises rebellion, the unusual, the unconventional, the unexpected, humanitarianism, liberation, freedom, awakening, breaking out of the status quo. Discovered in 1781. Planetary ruler of Aquarius (modern). Very slow moving takes about 7-8 years to go through a sign, and about 84 years to go through all 12 signs. Pronounced: YOOR-uh-nus or Yer-RAN-us or Yer-RAIN-us.

Venus

The planet Venus symbolises relationships, love, desire, attraction, money, possessions and values. Planetary ruler of Taurus and Libra. Fast moving takes from about 1-4 months to go through a sign, and from 10-13 months to go through all 12 signs.

Venus has a fascinating retrograde pattern! This cycle repeats in the same sign every 8 years. Venus retrograde also alternates through 5 signs during those 8 years, gradually shifting in those 5 repeating signs over time. There are some signs that Venus will never go retrograde in during your lifetime! To learn more about the Venus retrograde cycles, mythology and meanings, I highly recommend Anne Massey's very readable book: Venus: Her Cycles, Symbols & Myths.    Top of Page
