Uranus in Taurus: What I’m Noticing So Far

On May 15, 2018, zany, chaotic, high in the sky, liberating Uranus moves into slow, solid, steady, earthy Taurus. Whenever a slow moving planet changes signs, we can expect some major shifts. Some astrologers are predicting the end of the Taurean Bull financial system with a switch to Uranian Bitcoin. Others are predicting earthquakes, both physical and metaphysical. I’m not a doom and gloomer, but in recent sessions, I’m already noticing the lead up to this shift.

The effects depend upon the person, how “stuck” they are or how open to big, liberating changes. Like the Tower card of Tarot, Uranus can answer desperate prayers for change, but how we experience that change depends on our ability to recognize and embrace the answered prayers.


One example would be the person who hates his job, who has long wanted out but can’t find the “how,” suddenly getting fired or having an accident that prevents him from doing that job. (I had some heavy duty Uranus transits at the time of my 1998 car accident that caused a life changing TBI.) A more harmonious version of this same dynamic features the person who senses a needed career change and instead of waiting for the “how” to reveal itself, that person follows a “hop, skip and jump” approach — dead reckoning her way forward via synchronicities and awareness.

The first person feels the lightening strike as a trauma-drama. The second person anticipates the strike and commits to liberation pre-strike. For the open and prepared person, lightening arrives as a signal and confirmation of universal support for change. Both versions will dismantle the old stuck paradigms and require something new, bolder and more authentic, but the resistant option externalized as “Fate” tends to take longer for the blessing to reveal itself. The embracing option looks drastic or even reckless from the outside, but on the inside, the person feels supported and clear of the next, then the next, then the next steps to take. The less conscious (resistant) version operates on the subconscious victim of circumstances level and thus offers much less choice. The more conscious (embracing) version consciously co-creates the new life and therefore unfolds more as “ease-n-please” than “trauma-drama.”

[Note the Freudian typo of lightening instead of lightning strike. Highly symbolic, so I left it!]

Because Uranus moves slowly relative to Earth, the lead-up to a sign change already begins inner rumblings, especially for sensitive or intuitive folks. With Uranus moving into Earthy Taurus, even people firmly ensconced in Ye Olde 3D World feel an impending shake-up. In the past few weeks, increasing with each week, I’ve dealt with an unusually high number of people facing neurological issues. Multiple strokes, concussions, extreme brain fog, migraines, neurological glitches, and more: every day seems to bring a new level of weirdness. When possible, I track astrological transits during these neurological events, and I find very high and signficant Uranus activity in all those charts. This move into Taurus heightens the effects, because Uranus the bringer of radical changes is itself going through a radical change.

Yesterday, I found myself repeating similar advice to several clients: “The old rules no longer apply. Change has been calling for awhile. Now it’s knocking on your door. Change will bang down that door if you don’t make some committed move in the new direction. What seemed safe is now the riskier option.” In one of my all time favorite quotes, Anais Nin wrote of this truth:

“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.”

What changes keep calling, nagging and knocking in your life? How might you blossom from your known, tight bud? Chaos and change bring opportunity to those who commit to growth and liberation, take action and expect miracles. If you need support to discern those opportunities, please feel free to reach out. I offered the May Specials anticipating some Uranian upheaval and up-leveling.

Peace and empowerment to you and yours.

  3. You’re welcome, Jamie, and thanks for the luck! LOL, spring has sprung here, so we may be done with the white for awhile. I’m not confident enough of that to transplant my tomatoes, peppers and basil just yet, though. šŸ˜‰

  4. Aquarius sun, Leo moon – the uranus transit also added Tarot to my list of items to study. I mention it because your article pulled my attention that way. During Uranus transit Aries, I studied Sabian Symbols, astrological mandala and mental prowess…now I add Tarot.

    But caution = something is pushing me toward more on using it as my own energetic tool seeing how the image shows itself in the day – rather than using Tarot to predict outcomes for myself or others. I intend on mixing my art with Tarot art in this renaissance.

  7. Sounds like a great expansion, 1abserenity! Thanks for sharing some of your process here. It’s funny, because I ramped up my ongoing Tarot studies from art into readings when Uranus moved into Aries, finally offering Tarot readings in a public way later that year. šŸ™‚ With Uranus moving into Taurus, I’ve been formalizing 12 years of Astrology studies and then getting back to my writing, which will incorporate both Tarot and Astrology. šŸ™‚

  10. I found your information very informative. I am not very knowledgeable about astrology but it has always been an intriguing topic. Now that I am retired I plan to explore it more, as well as grow my skills and usage of Tarot. I have nothing but time now. Oh, did I mention I am also new to blogging. Today is my first attempt at it. I’m glad I found your site…it is just what I need at this time in my life. Synchronicity???

    I am excited to experience the changes, and grateful to even be aware of this shift, it can be empowering to have a tool that helps us prepare for collective shifts and revolutionary waves. It gives us a helpful advantage.

    I don’t have much going (I have an asteroid I don’t remember the name of) in Taurus, and Aries only has my Jupiter (i think) .. so transiting Uranus won’t touch my stellium of planets for many many decades. I imagine it is a light(e)ning sort of experienced to have it blaze across one’s natal placements. But it was trine my natal galactic center Uranus this year which is a coming-of-age sort of feeling- that is aligned with a collective one too. And I don’t know why- thinking about my relation with Uranus brings tears. “Things that evoke deep feelings”

    Happy Uranus ingress : )

  14. Great post! I get so excited whenever slower moving generational planets change signs. I definately think this lining up quite accurately with the digital currency surge…Uranus in Aries definately empowered a lot of people to innovate their own thoughts about independence and taking leadership over traditional establishments…Uranus in Taurus is bound to innovate the way that people handle their resources and wealth for sure.

  15. Thank you, Nicholas! Yes, we’ll just need to see how it all plays out. I hope Uranus in Taurus also leads to more people growing their own food in unusual ways — greening our cities and suburban areas with edible landscaping. The US “food” system, rapidly becoming the global “food” system is one of the most controlled areas in need of Uranian liberation. Here’s hoping earthy Taurus gets an infusion of natural growing power to liberate the masses from GMO’s and factory farms!

    Such syncs! ā¤ Last night a Magickal, isolated rainstorm came through here. (Part of it was rain that I had called up for the Garden's new Redbud tree.) But the big clouds that formed were very unusual and full of "Lightening" — all of it inside the cloud. The "storm" lasted about 10 minutes, at most, Right after, as it was still visible and "lightening from within" and moving to to the east, I saw the first "Lightening" bug of the year at my door at the very top of the glass. More "Lightening within". It stayed a few minutes and then flew off, as if to say, "Follow me through this portal."

  19. Thank you for sharing, Erica! Sorry for the delay posting this comment. It somehow got hidden from me until right now. šŸ™‚


  20. Cute the way you slipped the Tower card into this one. In Arabian astrology, the glyph they use to represent Uranus is a lightning bolt — or lightening bolt, if you prefer.
