As of May 15, 2018, Uranus, the freedom loving planet of revolution, rebellion and often sudden and dramatic changes, will move from the cardinal fire sign Aries into fixed earth Taurus until 2025-26. Uranus, which has an orbit of 84 years, breaks up stale and outmoded ways of being or relating, can shift things forward in sudden leaps, and has no time for vapid dogma or the status quo for the sake of the status quo in the things it touches.
Stubborn, conservative and independent Taurus rules money, finance, banking, property and land ownership, possessions (the things we value) as well as the home itself, which is typically very important to Taurus. Taurus, ruled by Venus, loves the pleasures of life and to feel connected with the earth (owning land has been associated with wealth since ancient times), thus Taurus is often associated with agriculture and food production as well. Venus, in its highest octave, rules how we love.
Couple the explosive, decisive and disruptive energies of Uranus with the areas governed by Taurus and we can expect to see revolutionary developments in these sectors of life. We may see rapid changes to money itself (such as electronic currencies being widely adopted), changes in the way we “own” land or property, major changes in the way banking is conducted and changes in agriculture and food production. Totally new ways of pleasure seeking and being in relationship may become more mainstream such as open relationships and polyamory. Also note that, as Taurus is an earth sign, and Uranus can bring about sudden unexpected disruption, seismic or volcanic activity or Earth changes may be more pronounced during this cycle.
The sun signs that will be impacted the most dramatically during this transit of Uranus are Taurus (Uranus will conjunct your Sun), Scorpio (Uranus will oppose your Sun), and Aquarius and Leo (Uranus will square your Sun). Those with Ascendants or Rising signs in Taurus, Scorpio, Aquarius and Leo can also expect major changes during this cycle. The precise dates these aspects will occur between now and 2026 will depend on the degree of your natal Sun or Ascendant in the signs I mentioned. I can provide you with this information, and the area of life that will be influenced. If you are interested in a reading please contact me.
Due to its destabilizing nature it’s likely we will see sudden and dramatic events around the time Uranus enters Taurus in may. I will be paying attention to the stock and real estate markets around that time as wild fluctuations or shocks would not be unsurprising. It’s always very difficult to predict Uranus but one thing you can always count on with it is surprises.
