The phrase “Murphy’s Law” was originated by Edward A. Murphy, Jr., a U.S. Air Force engineer, who expressed, “Anything that can go wrong, will, at the worst possible moment!” Retrograde motion also represents the concept of “Murphy’s Law,” because if something is ready to go wrong, or change, it will happen during retrograde motion!
Uranus retrograde may be a time when you are ready to seek your freedom and make drastic changes! You may feel like the outlaw who wants to fight against the flow of the current, because you are ready to leap forward now, not later!
Saturn retrograde brings you into a time when you are going to re-evaluate what you want to do. This will be a time when you will feel uncertain and very uncomfortable with proceeding forward. You may “Delay” your decision, or just say, “No” or even “End” something entirely because you will not let others push you in a direction that you are not ready to initiate.

Bringing My Umbrella During The Shadow Period...
The Three Phases Of Retrograde Motion
There are three phases of retrograde motion. The first phase represents the shadow period which starts 2-3 weeks before retrograde motion begins. This is the time when you will feel mixed up and cannot complete what you want to do. You might find yourself back stepping and redoing what you started.
The second phase represents the time when the planet turns retrograde and you may find yourself experiencing a “Do-Over!” Everything that you are trying to initiate and begin will feel slow or restricted. You may also run into many snafus along the way, unforeseen changes that will frustrate you. You have to roll with the transit and the changes it brings!
The third phase represents the last shadow period which lasts until the planet returns to the original degree it was when it started retrograde motion. This is a time when the energies are still mixed up and still back peddling, but once the planet passes the last shadow period you will be able to move forward again, without redoing things, and experiencing delays!
Please let me know your experience with Uranus Retrograde and if you run into any unexpected Snafus!
With Love and Joy,
