✮ Uranus turns retrograde in Aries:

Uranus’ retrograde motion urges you to look ahead, not back. Breaking old habits is one of the main tasks, during this transit. „Most people don’t have that willingness to break bad habits. They have a lot of excuses and they talk like victims“ (Carlos Santana)

Jupiter in Libra brings harmony in relationships; while Pluto in Capricorn is about changing social status and about the way you understand power and security. This aspect creates tension between the planets and it may be hard to balance career and family. „Balance, peace, and joy are the fruit of a successful life. It starts with recognizing your talents and finding ways to serve others by using them“ (Thomas Kinkade)
