On May 15th, 2018, Uranus will move into Taurus; it will journey through that sign for almost 8 years, until April 26th, 2026 — with the exception of a retrograde period that will temporarily return it to Aries from Nov. 6th, 2018, to March 6th, 2019.
Whenever a planet moves into a new sign, it’s a good idea to look back at the last time it made that transit — to quote Mark Twain, “history doesn’t repeat itself, but it rhymes” — things obviously won’t go exactly the same, but we can expect a certain resonance or similarity. Uranus is an outer planet that takes a long time to go around the Sun; the last time it moved through Taurus was between June 1934 and May 1942; before that, it was from July 1850 – March 1859.
Before we look at those periods of history, let’s talk briefly about the themes of Uranus in Taurus, so we can spot those “rhymes” if they occur. What can we expect when disruptive Uranus moves through earthy Taurus? Well, for one thing, it would be wise to get comfortable with being uncomfortable and relaxed with being surprised.
If we were only allowed one word to describe what Uranus does, it would be “disruption”. It’s all about progress, change — but not necessarily gradual, continuous amendment of the old — this is more like breaking down and uprooting the “old” structures.
This is the planet of “vision”, and like all visionaries, it favors a revolution as the quickest way to realize the “ideal future state”. It moves toward more freedom — you could say the higher vibration of Uranus seeks freedom for all, while a lower vibration says “I need to be free to do what I want, and the hell with you”.
Uranus listens to a higher calling — a Divine Mind — and can thus be detached from emotion and “human feeling”. Depending on the vision being pursued, this can be highly beneficial, or very dangerous.
Uranus urges everyone to wake up and smell the coffee, then join together to make coffee like the world has never seen and make sure that nobody ever has to drink mediocre coffee ever again.
Some Uranian keywords: Technology, Innovation, Discovery, Novelty, Ingenuity, Originality, and Astrology.
Uranus has two major modes: Reactive and Intuitive. Look over that list of keywords again and notice how those modes would play out for each one — “reactive” would lead pretty much every time to harm, “intuitive” to life-giving breakthroughs.
As you can probably tell, Uranus celebrates originality and individuality; it loves the rebels and revolutionaries who rally against the “establishment” and their established thought — or who at least put a new spin on old things. It can also go overboard and end up steering an erratic course onto the rocks.
So much for Uranus — what of Taurus? Taurus is connected to…

Those of us who have their Ascendent (or personal planets) in 0-2.5 degrees of Taurus, Scorpio, Leo or Aquarius will feel the impact of this first pass into Taurus more than others. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Aquarius (Uranus is the ruler of Aquarius). Also: Uranus was also in Taurus 84 years ago. If you were born 1934-1942, you will have a Uranus Return within the next 8 years. A new cycle begins on your individual journey towards creative Soul-Expression.
Have an amazing new exploration of your own values and connections to the Earth, your body, your resources, etc.
