Uranus in Taurus until 2026 — A New Vision for the Earth

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 TaurusTaurus is connected to…

A Deeper Look

T-Square (Nov. 2016 – April 2017): Since Nov. 2016, we’ve been experiencing a T-Square involving Pluto in Capricorn, Jupiter in Libra, and Uranus in Aries. Given that this is a powerful and fairly long-lasting aspect, I figured I would write a special blog entry about it.
 
Let’s first talk about what T-Squares are in general, before diving into the specifics of this particular one:
 
The first thing you need to know is that T-squares are very dynamic aspects, that keep us “on our toes”, constantly growing. We can learn a tremendous amount when we work actively and consciously with the energies involved in a T-Square. 
 
So what exactly are they?
 
Imagine a dinner table with four legs. Now remove one of the legs. You now have two legs “opposite” each other and a third one at right angles to each of the other two; together, they make the shape of a “T”. 
 
This is not a very stable, well-balanced table, as it has an “empty” spot where a leg should be.
 
Likewise, a T-Square is a formation of 3 planets that together form the shape of a “T” in a chart — two form an “opposition”, the third one usually “squares” them both. 
 
The third planet is known as the “focus planet”. Just like our table, this planet has an “empty leg” directly across from it in the chart.
 
Why does this matter? Because the “focus planet” in a T-Square brings more stress, and thus a more urgent demand for our growth. We resolve and relieve that stress, and thereby ease the growth process, by bringing the focus planet’s higher expression to that “empty leg” in the chart. 
 
Let’s get down to the specifics of this particular T-square:

As previously mentioned, it involves Pluto in Capricorn, Jupiter in Libra, and Uranus in Aries. All of these planets have been within 5 degrees of each other since the T-Square formed back in November and will remain so until early April. Jupiter in Libra and Uranus in Aries form the “opposition” legs of the table, while Pluto in Capricorn is the “focus planet”.
 
This is a very powerful combo.
 
It’s asking us to be completely honest, with ourselves and others, about our intentions and motivations — especially around long-term goals. We are also asking this of our leaders right now, we want them to be honest, to have authentic intentions.
 
This aspect brings the message that each of us has the power to make a difference in the world… that we need not just give our power away to world “leaders” or “influencers”. It’s saying “We all have power, we all can make a difference — Own that! Seize the moment! Take up your courage with both hands and move forward!”
 
We are at a turning point: Empowering others is now key! Notice when you try to force your beliefs on others — that could introduce an element of disempowerment for them and us.
 
There is also some tension between relationships and long-term goals. We may ask how our relationships support us in accomplishing those long-term goals. At the root of this are seemingly conflicting desires: We want to expand our experience of harmony, balance and collaboration, all while passionately building something empowering over the long haul. It’s not always easy to “square” these energies.
 
As best as you can, stay flexible, make adjustments, find creative solutions when it comes to these very different desires and focuses. If we feel boxed in to something inauthentic, we may rebel or act contrary. This will be even more true within our relationships — this could bring in some restlessness or instability, perhaps related to our business relationships or long-term goals. 
 
As best as you can, don’t take things too personally — and stay as flexible as possible. Allow there to be breakthroughs, shifts, changes. As always, change could be uncomfortable — perhaps because we like what’s familiar — or because we want change so badly that we can’t handle the in-between phase that comes will all transitions… it’s an invitation to stretch ourselves and step into the unknown.
 
Here’s some “self-coaching” questions to ease you on your way:
 
What if that “something unexpected” around the corner was guaranteed to change my life for the better? What needs to be eliminated? Changed? What would “courage” do? What if I simply surprised myself, right here and now? 
 
Let’s look at some other facets of this T-square. Earlier, we mentioned that the “focus planet” is Pluto in Capricorn:
 
This T-square is thus asking us to stretch and grow along another dimension: we are invited to empower ourselves in the world by connecting to our “feeling body” and by developing a deeper understanding of our physical and emotional needs (especially for safety).
 
At the same time, we are also invited to stretch ourselves to create a more authentic and empowered society — one that honors the unique, individual contribution of everyone — one capable of owning its fears and less attractive characteristics. How might we bring this about? The best place to start is to honor ourselves and express our unique spark. 
 
All of this accelerates the breakdown of long-standing patterns: we are invited individually and collectively to resolve core karmic lessons — shifting from an old paradigm to a new one. What might a “new paradigm” be?
 
How can we accomplish change without discounting input from others? 
 
What if change were something we could simply allow, rather than something that involved aggression?
 
As best as you can, take it one moment at a time, there is no need to rush anything 😉 Ask yourself: Could I allow myself to be uncomfortable, just for right now?
 
The position of this T-square in our birth chart shows the area of life in which we are developing not only courage and initiative (Aries), but also diplomacy and collaborative spirit (Libra), together with responsibility and integrity (Capricorn). 
 
This T-Square is also asking us to redefine personal and collective freedom. We are invited to release old patterns, particularly around gender, so we can each fulfill our unique role at this critical juncture on Earth. Much like the 1960’s, we are laying the groundwork for future generations right now.
 
Just as was true then, we need to let our vision direct our thoughts and actions, rather than our fear. Simply know that it is possible — and that you are part of what makes it possible.
 
That said — and somewhat paradoxically — bringing forth a global consciousness based on freedom, equality and mutual benefit, will mean addressing what lurks in the shadows: our unconscious… the suppressed, feared, denied, ignored, shameful, etc.  In other words, the inner work not only continues, it informs and enables the vision.
 
So, I ask myself (and invite you to do the same): What are my true motivations? If fears were driving me, what might they be? 
 
What might shift if I faced those fears — acknowledged them, brought them out into the open? 
 
What if I allowed myself to surrender to my own higher power, or to my passionately pumping, wildly open heart? Trust your inner truth!
 
By definition, a better future pretty much always requires doing different things, or doing things differently, so be ready to correct your course or set a new one… Is there another path that leads to the goal? What if it were possible to take responsibility and be flexible at the same time? 
 
What if I forgave myself for just a moment? Even for limitations I still have… even for fears… maybe even for my phobias… for all the “stuff” I still carry around, whether from a past life or this one?
 
As you can see, we are asked to let go of our fearful conditioning, and embrace a vision that calls for us to “live into” the highest version of ourselves. 
 
This will mean we take an innovative approach both to who we are personally, and to our interactions with others. The same is true of our perspective on justice, we’re asking ourselves: what is just? We’re seeking harmony and balance.
 
Life is so short in relationship to the life of the planet. That we are not in this body for very long, means that there is a certain degree of urgency — almost like a responsibility — to make it count for something. If we are like a single drop of rain in a mighty rainstorm, why not at least be a drop that makes a ripple when it returns to the ocean? Who knows, perhaps as your ripple meets others, it might create a beautiful resonance with everything around it — a harmony that ripples down through eternity…
 
I therefore invite you to be passionate about life. Why not fully express our uniqueness? After all, that’s what will create the shift. It’s what moves other people. It’s the best and easiest way to touch each others lives.
 
We are definitely being pulled in many different directions with this T-Square, personally and collectively — radically different.
 
And, as regular readers of my Weekly Forecasts know: Self-care is therefore critical. Why do I say this?
 
It’s this simple: if we don’t maintain our physical bodies, we will not be able to maintain the pace, or meet the demands placed on us right now. 
 
The empty leg of this T-square being in Cancer, it emphasizes that message: we are reminded to nurture ourselves, especially (once again) our “feeling body”. We are being invited to pay attention to our basic needs — for love, acceptance, control, safety & security, etc. 
 
As best as you can then, take breaks — or at least slow down and allow yourself to relax. It’s important to explore ways to stay centered and grounded — seek tools or people to help you with that exploration. This is true always, of course, but holds especially true until the end of the T-Square in early April.
 
Some of us struggle with this. Perhaps we think “I don’t deserve that” or “I’m too busy — my function in the world is more important than the body that performs the work.” Some of us hear “self-care”, and think “selfish”.
 
When you think about it, though, selfish behaviors are generally coming from fear. And who is served when we neglect our physical or emotional health?
 
I invite you to reclaim the term “self-care” for love. Aren’t you as deserving of your love and support as any “external” person? Where and how could “self-oriented” motivations serve you and others?
 
“Self-care” doesn’t have to be a trip to Hawaii — we’re talking about simple things, like making sure that we eat mindfully, drink plenty of water, exercise, get plentiful rest. This is about letting in affection from friends, family, or pets. It doesn’t matter what your current energetic or financial situation, you can always find some way to let some nurturing happen 🙂
 
What (or who) brings you comfort and support? How can you nurture yourself in these times of change? 
 
What if empowerment in the world came from being in touch with our “feeling-body”? What might we accomplish if we simply asked for what we need?
 
In other words, “self-care” means connecting to whatever feels supportive, in order to stay grounded and regenerate; this is particularly important right now, because we are feeling very action-oriented.  If everything else is moving fast, it’s good if we slow down, become the eye of the storm. If nothing else, at least we can do our best to roll with the punches, while standing in our power.
 
If you’d like some help with this, watch my Full Moon in Gemini video — towards the end, I invite you to do a quick experiment with me, using simple questions from the “Sedona Method”. This can support you in feeling more grounded and present (the Sedona Method is one of the main techniques I use in my coaching practice).
 
All of this not only empowers us, it also make it easier to empower others — and remember that while force comes from fear and righteousness, true power always comes from love and openness.
 
Those of us who have personal planets or points (ASC/MC) in 14-28 degrees of Aries, Libra, Capricorn or Cancer, will feel the effects of this T-Square more strongly.

The Uranus-Pluto Dance of Personal & Global Growth 2011-2017

 Uranus/Pluto squares: These outer planets move more slowly through the sky and their influence is very powerful. We started to feel the approach towards the first square already back in Spring of 2011, the last exact square will be in 2015. And we will still be able to feel the effects fo this combo until 2017.

As these two planets move through this sequence, the energy rises and falls like a slow-moving, powerful tide that reaches a high point as the square becomes exact, then slowly subsides. All seven of these squares are connected to our personal and collective evolution towards greater freedom and authenticity — and also our ability to create something that serves ourselves and others over the long-term.
