Uranus retrograde in 188.8.131.52: Overwhelm through inner and outer pressure can keep people stuck in limitations and old structures that they have outgrown - or withstanding confusion and conditioning attempts, and finding our very own way. Being on track and persevering despite temporary inaction, and yet struggling with massive doubt when the resources and right time for transition might not be there yet. Being receptive to the direction that we need to head toward for ourself, despite massive doubt and confusion.

By the time Uranus goes direct in January 2022, all the confusion and returning imagery might have resulted in a rational concept – or in irrational delusion.
By the time Uranus goes direct, someone is or has been victimized and dominated by the ordering power of others, and appeases them to get at least some rest while truly suffering the situation (which was the main challenge of 2021) – or they have stood by their conviction against all confusion, and they have found their very own way.
This Uranus retrograde also deals with the delusion that knowledge can help us to get everything that we want, and it can lead us to actively overextend ourself in the process - the typical story of someone who spends all their savings on an expensive manifestation course, doesn't manifest what they expected, and struggles to pay their next rent. It doesn't work that way if the ego is severely unhealthy, misaligned, distorted, and simply hungry for power. Either you are aligned, or you are not. If you are not well aligned, you can do the inner work to clear your energy field and reorient yourself, but you can't try to force your will onto life and onto others. This Uranus retrograde brings the backlash and the negative feeling and raging against fate, or it brings the simple acceptance of what is and the natural alignment to OUR path and to OUR call, regardless of circumstances and people who try to mess with us and push their will onto us. Either we are going to be stuck in the raging against fate, or we are just going to be on our way without the ego and power being a huge issue, and we will arrive when we will arrive. When we are receptive to the flow of life, to the signs on the way that resonate with us, and to our inner pull, we naturally align to where we are supposed to go, and the resistance that we meet lessens.
Knowledge does help us with alignment, with finding our flow, and also with navigating life in general, but it can never help us to manifest something that is not on our natural trajectory. It can only help us to manifest what is for us anyway.
This Uranus retrograde is all about becoming selectively receptive: It is about being less receptive to unhealthy conditioning, and more receptive to the feedback of the maya (the program or matrix) and to our inner guidance that resonate with our truth and determination.
