While in Aries, Uranus challenged you to step into a leadership position. Asked you to make bold choices and created significant life changes that altered your life path Uranus in Aries was all about making changes so you could step into your power and creatively set your life on fire Now in Taurus the ground beneath us may be shaky and unstable, Lacking security where we once felt safe but this is how we grow, this is how we learn, and this is how we discover who we really are.
Over the next 8 years, In some way we are all going to be required to make a leap forward and to practice trusting ourselves a little more (source).
This is the first time Uranus has changed signs since 2010, when it moved into Aries. It was last in Taurus from 1935 – 1942, and will remain there until 2026. This is a major awakening and enlightening energy for the ‘sleeping bull’ energy of Taurus that tends to dislike major change. Notice how these themes land
1. Challenges and transformation of our values, including our self-value.
2. Radical innovations of our financial system on a personal and collective level.
3. A shift from external ‘security’ props to internal security.
4. The breakdown of inauthentic false values in the collective.
5. A radical change in our understanding of beauty.
6. Innovations in taking care of the resources on our planet.
7. Major changes in the concept of ‘home’ and ‘housing’.
8. Changes in our relationship patterns.
Earth Revolution Massive changes will occur on May 15, 2018 when the planet Uranus enters the sign of Taurus. This is both a time of excitement and unpredictability! Our physical environment as well our social structures will take on new forms and we can expect to see more natural disasters. In fact, it is predicted that earthquakes, volcanoes, tidal waves and may occur with more frequency/ Rest assured, whatever happens will set in motion important cycles for humanity’s future. Events this BIG stir people from their complacency and help shift the collective mind. These Uranian energies give a willingness and bravery to believe in concepts that were previously ‘weird’. We may have no other choice than to find new ways of living. What we have been doing isn’t working and now we need something new. Uranus wants to disassemble and build again – but better.
Topics about sustainability, eating local, renewable energies, regenerative agriculture and other eco conscious activities will quickly advance our progress. Uranus makes edgy things cool and pushes it into the masses.
We can expect to see the next push for eco-conscious activities and lifestyles as it permeates people’s daily lives. We have seen mass hype around human rights during the Uranus in Aries period.
Next, we will see a battle for our bodies, basic needs like food and the environment.
Uranus is the planet that rules our innovation, technological advances and humanitarian achievements through the process of disruption and disassembly. The sign associated with Uranus is Aquarius, which rules over the 11th house of global consciousness. This is the human element that breaks apart old paradigms and forces growth in collective thinking, all with awareness and action. It is the planetary tipping point. Uranus brings revolutions which ultimately better human conditions and they need to be born from chaos. Chaos naturally inspires Order. With this transit affecting the global masses, a sobering reflection on the condition our lives will be hard to ignore. Uranus represents that which drives global radical action through the individual to become authorities over our own lives. It is the voice of the people, rules over humanitarian activities and challenges oppression no matter the cost.
Taurus is the sign that encompasses our relationship with the physical world. This includes our bodies, the earth, animals, food, resources, money, and how we assign value to these things. What we pay to get our basic needs met belongs to Taurus and the 2nd house of personal wealth. Their planet Venus likewise rules over the physical luxuries and sensations experienced on the physical plane. Our food, shelter and water are all things we pluck from the earth. Since Taurus also rules the toddler stage in life, it shows our dependence on forces that give us life. We are dependent on the resources we harvest and are vulnerable when we don’t adequately protect them.
Uranus is the planet of creative explosion and surprises. Uranus can liberate us and free us up from ways of behaviour to which we have become accustomed and perhaps do just because that’s what we are expected to do. When Uranus comes into the frame ideals that we have perhaps held down for a long time can be shown to no longer have worth or value. Or different ideals enter the frame that we haven’t considered before – in this respect Uranus represents innovation, new discoveries, inventions, technology and science, liberation and freedom.
Taurus is a fixed earth sign and as such represents what is tangible, what we can touch. Therefore, Taurus very much represents the land, money and wealth, material things. Material things give us a sense of security and stability, something we can fall back on, something that gives us a certain status and value in life- and that’s what Taurus holds dear. Taurus also leans towards conservatism – whilst Uranus favours the new and the extreme. Above all Taurus desires security and stability whereas Uranus favours a revolution, the new, thriving on extreme change. Taurus is slow and steady, a safe pair of hands – Uranus is unpredictable, excitable and lightening quick. So perhaps we can already gain a sense that Uranus and Taurus are not going to be a marriage made in heaven.
We say that history repeats itself and it does, but never in quite the same way. The last time we saw Uranus in Taurus was between 1934 and 1941 and before that 1850 – 1859. Indeed at the end of 1851 there was a line up of Uranus, Saturn and Pluto all in Taurus – such a line up of outer planets often indicates periods of huge change and new inventions (bear in mind that we have just got through the series of Uranus/Pluto squares). The period 1850 -59 was the time of the structuring of the Industrial Revolution which encompassed technological and innovative changes, new basic materials such as iron and steel, new energy sources such as coal, the steam engine, electricity, the first modern oil well and the development of the internal combustion engine, the invention of new machines, new organization of work, new developments in transportation and communication, the application of science to industry, mass production and therefore socio economic developments and changes in urban areas etc. This was change on a massive scale – cultural, demographic, technological and industrial change. Before this period daily life had not really changed massively but this was like a technological explosion which catapulted people into completely different lifestyles – where they lived, how they lived and how they worked.
