Uranus enters Taurus (3:26 AM EST)
After a brief occupation from May 15th to November 6th, 2018, Uranus returns to Taurus for the long haul (until its final exit on April 25th, 2026).
This post gives you the basics on what this transit means, but here’s a quick cheat sheet (from that post) about what might happen when the planet of liberation hits the sign of stubborn habits, security and resources:
new approach to money/security/survival/pleasure/self-esteem/beauty
new physical expression
disruption of stagnation
liberation from suppression
detachment from possessions/possessiveness
upgrade of what's stagnated
2018 offered an introduction. Did you experience any warning rumbles or hints that something fixed needed to change? Whatever began at that time will now continue and intensify (you’re most likely to have felt this if you have anything from 0 to 2 degrees of the Fixed or Earth signs).
Uranus is about what’s new, so all of the above can be boiled down to that concept. Some area of your life (wherever Taurus is located in your chart) is ready for an update. The strength of the update (whether it’s a cool opportunity to move in a new direction or a radical disruption) will depend on how ready you are to change and how entrenched a certain situation is. The stronger the disruption the more change is needed.
Since we have a Pisces New Moon today, you can also look at what’s happening around 15 deg Pisces in your chart - a new beginning there will be connected to Uranus’ big update. The contrasting energies are interesting: this New Moon (and Mercury Rx) is so vague and unproven and in flux. But there will be no mistaking what’s happening in Taurus. This speaks to many different layers of change - some are immediate and visible (Uranus) but the long-term outcome (and additional layers) will not be visible just yet.
Wondering how Uranus’ transit of Taurus might impact you? I’ve written an eBook about it, based on your house positions (you need to know your birth time so you can figure out which description in the book applies to you).
