Uranus, the planet of great awakenings and change is preparing to move out of Aries and into Taurus on May 15, 2018. It will journey back into Aries in December 2018 briefly before making its final move into Taurus on March 6th, 2019, where it will remain until 2026.
Whenever a slow moving planet like Uranus moves signs, it creates a ripple effect that is felt throughout the entire cosmos, and brings a new energy for all of us to explore.
During this shift of energy, it is likely that we will all experience an awakening of some kind. We may also receive new insights or exciting new opportunities may come our way.
To understand how this transit is going to effect you personally, think about what was happening for you around May 2010 and then again around March 2011. It was around this time that Uranus entered Aries, and now as Uranus is preparing to leave this sign, you are likely to feel a sense of completion to whatever was occurring.
While in Aries, Uranus would have been challenging you to step into a leadership position. You may have made some bold choices around this time, or there may have been significant life changes that shifted the path you were traveling on.
Uranus in Aries was all about making changes so you could step into your power and into the driver’s seat of your life.
Perhaps reflect on this and see where you have stepped up in your life and where you have found more courage.
Celebrate yourself for how far you have come, and celebrate the changes that have occurred in your life so far. Try to see them with a positive mindset and just how they have shaped the person you are today.
As Uranus moves into Taurus, we are all going to be given some new lessons, and this time it’s all about our feelings of security and stability.
While Uranus is all about change, growth, and awakening, Taurus is all about consistency, security, and stability. Uranus longs for change, whereas Taurus longs for things to stay the same.
These two energies are not exactly the perfect match, so there may be a push-pull feeling, and you may find it difficult to make or accept certain changes.
The ways that you seek stability and comfort are also going to be up for review under this energy. You may also find that what you once thought was secure and stable is no longer.
In fact, under this energy you may have to rework and reassess what makes you feel secure and stable. You may also have to let go and release attachments to things that once brought you comfort.
So many of us have been conditioned to receive our security and feelings of stability from material goods such as having a house, a job, money and so on. While these things do provide us with security, perhaps we are being called to dig a little deeper and learn to cultivate these feelings from within, regardless of our circumstances.
In a way, Uranus in Taurus is about letting go of your security blanket and learning to step out into the world with a little more freedom and a little more risk.
In some way, we are all going to be required to make a leap forward and to practice trusting ourselves a little more.
The ground beneath us may be shaking or unstable, or there may not be the security we once felt, but this is how we grow, this is how we learn, and this is how we discover who we really are.
On a global level, Uranus in Taurus is going to be challenging all of us to pay attention to how we are treating Mother Earth. We are going to be encouraged to really think about environmental issues, global warming, and how we can protect the planet.
Some astrologers have also predicted an increase in earthquakes and natural disasters as Uranus settles into its new home of Taurus.
Uranus in Taurus is also going to create waves for the tech industry, medical research, cryptocurrency, robotics, fashion, and in all things relating to beauty and wellness. All of these fields are likely to experience a revolution of some kind or have major breakthroughs under this energy.
Uranus completes its journey in Taurus in April 2026, and at this time it’s likely you will be able to look back and reflect on the changes you have made in your life to cultivate more security and comfort from within.
