Uranus is the planet of sudden and unexpected changes, in retrograde motion, it helps you see everything clearly so that you begin to make the necessary changes to move forward.
This can be a draining time in relationships, especially those that were only meant to love the unhealed part of you.
Now is the time to grow.
If it seems like your relationship doesn’t really honor or align with your deeper truth, then it’s time to start looking at how you can more fully embrace that, even if it means something has to end.
There’s nothing good about pretending to be something you’re not or trying to fit into someone else’s life at the expense of your own.
Mercury, the ruler of communication, also sneaks into Libra this week highlighting issues of relationships and balance.
It is time to start having the necessary conversations to help you embrace your greater truth because ultimately the love that is meant for you will love all of you and not just the parts that are convenient.
These are the four zodiac signs that fall out of love and end their relationship during the week of August 22-28, 2022.
1. Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Uranus has been moving through your sign since 2018 changing plans and throwing curveballs at you all over your life, but especially in your romance zone. Uranus is the planet of unexpected and surprising changes, but it is also the planet that helps you reach your destination. In late July, this planet of shock and awe aligned with the North Node, also in Taurus, delivering a moment from which there was no turning back.
This week Uranus turns retrograde in Taurus, a time for you to see what’s real and where you’ve still been hiding in order to recognize it. In your relationships, it means there is likely to be a connection that doesn’t really align with your true self or his needs.
This could be a situation where you are trying to be someone else in order to hold on to the relationship, or that while you may love them, in order to maintain the relationship, you have to deny certain aspects of your growth.
It’s more about you trying to change yourself to fit into a relationship rather than just being yourself and seeing what ends up being able to fit you.
This week could bring more of those moments when there is no going back, but since the purpose of Uranus retrograde is to be able to truly see what is real and what is not, the purpose is ultimately to make changes. Stand firm in your truth this week and if it means a relationship ends or changes, it just means it shouldn’t be a part of your future.
2. Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
While Taurus is going through relationship challenges this week due to Uranus, you are having your own reality check. Taurus is your opposite sign, which means that whenever there is an activity within this sign, it brings attention and focus to your romantic life.
Uranus has been very active recently, both aligning with planets like Venus, the ruler of love, and the North Node that rules your destiny.
This is a very active time and having all this energy lighting up your romantic relationships means it’s time to see everything for what it is instead of what you wanted it to become.
Uranus retrograde is a period for you to get honest with yourself about what happened in the past romantically and what that means not only for the present moment but also for the future. During this week is an opportunity to find deeper healing and realizations about this part of your life and how it has developed.
Look for the ultimate goal of everything and not just how you feel because things did not quite coincide with the dream. Being able to see things as they allow you to be in place to absorb the lessons more deeply and also begin to align with the truth. The more you align with the truth, the more you will be able to distinguish between reality and fantasy. Great opportunities will appear for a new love, but first, you must make peace with your past, so that it does not ruin it.
3. Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Mercury, the planet of communication, moves into Libra this week, dominated by associations, helping you find the words you’ve been looking for. Libra is your opposite sign and with Mercury moving into it it highlights the need for important conversations and communication in your relationships.
You have been on a journey of awakening and realizing that where you are is not where you should stay. Instead of feeling remorseful about your relationship choices and decisions, see them as necessary to get you to this moment. Everything that you experienced in the last few years was part of bringing you here, to this place of growth and seeing things clearly.
You may not yet feel like you are ready to make the changes the universe is bringing you, but the fact that it is knocking on your door tells you that it is time.
A lot has happened, but a lot hasn’t really been talked about either. Mercury entering Libra and emphasizing speaking from a balanced space in your relationships means it’s time to start sharing openly and honestly. You don’t need to have it all figured out to just start the process, and the sooner you do that, the sooner you can make room for what’s going to line up.
4. Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
When you allow yourself to be who you really are, you also see who is meant to be in your life and who is not. You have the ability to fit into a variety of situations and can make just about anything work. Your natural duality allows your romantic partner to feel like they have the best of both worlds, but it can sometimes feel like while they love you, they don’t really know who you are. As an air sign, changing your mind and even your attributes comes with the territory, but this can often be confused with simply being flippant or holding back.
Take some time this week to think about who you really are as a person and what you need from life and from a relationship.
Just because it can blend in and fit into any setting doesn’t mean it can. In all likelihood, you’ve been going through a rough patch in the relationship where you’ve been projecting that it’s all the fault of whoever you’re with.
But there is more to the story here. As Mercury enters Libra this week, he lights up his ability to express himself in a healthy and balanced way. It can be challenging to realize that someone just liked the idea of living with you instead of the reality or even that you were trying so hard to be something that you weren’t just to make a relationship work. Remember that you will never find what you are really looking for until you can first be honest about who you really are.
