Taurus New Moon | Uranus into Taurus - part ll

The VOLCANO by beymen0
See Part I HERE

Less than four hours after the Sun and Moon come together in Taurus, the planet Uranus (technology, science, revolution, liberation, genius, lightning fast CHANGE) slips into Taurus, too.

People with early degree Taurus placements (or planets/points in the very beginning degrees of the other fixed signs), a strong Taurus house or a strong Uranus will feel this first and strongest right now. But, all of us will be impacted during Uranus's seven year transit through Taurus and those with planets and points in fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius) - which Uranus will conjunct, square and oppose - will be most impacted as those fixed positions get SHAKEN up.

Taurus is that comfortable space in our chart we rely on to ALWAYS BE THE SAME - Uranus - think "bull in a china shop" here - will likely be disruptive.

Something is very likely to get broken.

At the same time Uranus, who has been barreling through Aries for the last seven years - changing the way we see ourselves, changing the way we start things, the way we do Aries things and the way we go about getting what we want - slides into the comfortable mud that is Taurus.

Imagine a kindly old woman who likes to rise at dawn, have her tea on the terrace listening to the birds precisely at 8AM, then take a walk around the block where she will stop at the local bakery to purchase a hard roll, which she will test with her fingers for precisely the right amount of firmness, for lunch at noon with a tomato she has picked from her garden. She naps at two on that same terrace with a book in her lap, has tea at four and dinner at eight. You get the idea.

Now imagine a rebellious teenager (and Uranus is no teenager - he was Saturn's father after all, but you can see where I am going with this), her grandson, moves in with our kindly old woman. He is a nice guy, too, in his own way, but doesn't think about things like time and routine and comfort. He does what he wants. And what he mostly wants to do are things he has never done before. He will shake up her perfectly timed, comfy/cozy little world. AND she will slow his down.

What can we expect in our own lives?

Well, since Uranus rules the new and unusual - we could expect newness with the things Taurus rules. New ways to make money, new ways to save, new ways to share, new ways to spend. Likely changing financial markets - ups and downs. New values. The things we value will shift over the next seven years. Our self-esteem will shift. The way we hold onto things and the things we hold onto will shift. The way we care for our resources (including the planet) will shift.

The events that will transpire, situations we will face, the thoughts we will think, the actions we will take, the people we will meet - that facilitate these changes are laid out in our natal charts to some degree and are also dictated by our own free will. This will be different for everyone. But we are all on the same ride together.

Also keep in mind Uranus will operate differently while visiting stable Taurus. So we can flip this whole thing around. Uranian things become more stable. Groups and humanitarian causes can get more focused and establish stronger footings. Technology more comfortable. The things that were previously 'ahead of their time' can start to 'bring home the bacon' now. Revolution plotted and planned. Scientific advancement that aids the planet. Scientific advancement that aids the human body. Aliens could come to earth (!) and yes, I mean this exactly as it sounds, and also the flipside of this with human people exploring other planets in new ways, but just as likely more alien history is unearthed - maybe something that sets the official creation story on its ear a bit. All kinds of comfortable things will likely get less comfortable due to innovative/advanced movement.

Some changes we will welcome and probably some we won't.

So, our ability to be comfortable - to feel safe and stable - will be dependent to our ability to embrace CHANGE and instability. Fixed planet people, like me, are probably in for a whole lot of shaking (ack!).

My first astrology teacher was very Uranian. In the late 1980's she talked about the 2020's (she saw the Age of Aquarius as kicking off when the Mayan calendar ended in 2012) as the time when we would be talking to people anywhere on the planet at anytime without wires and telephones. She thought this would be telepathic and even used the word "net" to describe the process, but because we couldn't really picture, in those days, the inter-net and how we would all be "connected" she didn't know what she didn't know. That's how the future is. We can guess at what Uranus might do (and yes, you can think Trump here) but we never really know until it happens.

When the planet Uranus was discovered science was taking over and humanity's connection to a living planet was tossed into a scrapheap called "superstition". We threw the baby out with the bathwater. Maybe with these two energies combining now - technology and a living, breathing planet - the energies, through us, can finally begin to work together to strengthen each other!

Think about our connection to energy - do we really think electricity has to move through wires? This is just the way it has been monetized. This could change now. Free energy IS a real possibility over the next few years and almost certainly will be a reality in the future. Thinking about what needs to break down to get us there is kind of scary though. But also exciting.

Let's take a brief look by sign - we can't pigeon-hole Uranus, folks - but this should be somewhat accurate over the next few years! Check your rising and Sun signs.

So the things I wrote about earlier in this post we will all experience and then individually we will experience some more and different experiences, some of which could be listed here.

ARIES/Aries Rising - Uranus (CHANGE) is moving into your 2nd house of money, your values, your resources and self-esteem. Maybe your job changes. Maybe you start a new business. Your income could be up and down. The way your money connects to your self-esteem will shift. The things you value will shift. These changes will play out over several years. First challenge, almost immediately will come through Mars squaring Uranus from your 11th house of the collective - your friendships, groups, causes, the internet, the public, the goals that bring you into relationship with other people, your advancement, technology. Maybe competition? Some challenge to your public reputation or within a group setting? Over the long haul (the next seven years) Uranus will be opposing your 8th house of other people's resources, other people's values, intimacy, other people's money, spouse's income, loans, debts, taxes, inheritance, sex, reproduction. The best news for you - Uranus is exiting your sign! Breathe Aries - the ways your life has been turned inside out since 2011 will start to stabilize. Freelance work and passive income will be more possible now if this is something you are working toward.

TAURUS/Taurus Rising - Uranus (CHANGE) is moving into your 1st house of yourself dear Taurus! This is your once in a lifetime chance to totally reinvent yourself and many people never get this chance. Anything listed in any of the sign posts is open to you. Any area of life where you are feeling yourself wearing too tight a collar is going to be broken wide open. First challenge, almost immediately will come through Mars squaring Uranus from your 10th house of your career, your calling, your achievements, your achievement goals, dad, business, authority, responsibility. Over the long haul (the next seven years) Uranus will be opposing your 7th house of partners and partnership, so keep this in mind. The best news for you - all the ways you have been playing too small and too safe a game are on their way out!

GEMINI/Gemini Rising - Uranus (CHANGE) is moving into your 12th house of what is hidden or put away or done behind the scenes, secrets, the ethereal realms, imagination, hospitals, spirituality, addiction, healing. Your ghosts and self-sabotaging tendencies are ripe for removal Gemini! First challenge, almost immediately will come through Mars squaring Uranus from your 9th house of travel, higher education, weddings, politics, legal issues, the media, publishing, foreigners, everything outside your comfort zone, exploration, your beliefs and higher thinking. Over the long haul (the next seven years) Uranus will be opposing your 6th house of day-to-day activities, your routine, work, co-workers, pets and your health. You have had Uranus in your 11th house for seven years shaking and breaking your friendships and groups, your relationship with the internet and technology. Hopefully you have the right tribe in place now Gemini. You are off on a deep soul journey starting this month.

CANCER/Cancer Rising - Uranus (CHANGE) is moving into your 11th house of the collective - your friendships, groups, causes, the internet, the public, the goals that bring you into relationship with other people, your advancement, technology. New people are coming and old people are leaving. You will join new tribes and leave behind groups where you are no longer growing. Relationships that are strictly based on duty will get freed up. First challenge, almost immediately will come through Mars squaring Uranus from your 8th house of other people's resources, other people's values, intimacy, other people's money, spouse's income, loans, debts, taxes, inheritance, sex, reproduction. Over the long haul (the next seven years) Uranus will be opposing your 5th house of creative projects, your self-expression, what you give birth to, children, romance and recreation. You have had Uranus in your 10th house for the last seven years creating change within your career and your goals, your public face and what you need to feel safe and secure. Your tribe is coming Cancer!

LEO/Leo Rising - Uranus (CHANGE) is moving into your 10th house of your career, your calling, your achievements, your achievement goals, dad, business, authority, responsibility. It is likely your career, goals and public face will change over the next seven years Leo. The need for the freedom to do the work you are called to do will surface. The degree your life is shaken up will depend on how far off course from your own authenticity you have drifted. A course correction is coming Leo. First challenge, almost immediately will come through Mars squaring Uranus from your 7th house of partners and partnerships. Something has reached a tipping point here with another person. Over the long haul (the next seven years) Uranus will be opposing your 4th house of home, family, your roots, mother, mothering, your ancestry, real estate or a home business. You are now charged with a once in a lifetime (and many people never get this!) opportunity to totally revamp the most visible part of your life dear Leo - what are you going to do with it?!

VIRGO/Virgo Rising - Uranus (CHANGE) is moving into your 9th house of travel, higher education, weddings, politics, legal issues, the media, publishing, foreigners, everything outside your comfort zone, exploration, your beliefs and higher thinking. This house harmonizes with your sign so these changes will be mostly good news Virgo! You have had Uranus in your 8th house of other people's money for seven years so it has probably been feast or famine for you Virgo as you learned not to hold on to material things too tightly. Changes within intimate situations have also been possible. These challenges will begin to smooth out now! First challenge, almost immediately will come through Mars squaring Uranus from your 6th house of day-to-day activities, your routine, work, co-workers, pets and your health. An abrupt change with something here will open new doors. Over the long haul (the next seven years) Uranus will be opposing your 3rd house of communication, information, writing, siblings, transportation or your local neighborhood. You are off on an exciting journey around your beliefs - what is really real, what is possible - keep your mind open Virgo!

LIBRA/Libra Rising - Uranus (CHANGE) is moving into your 8th house of other people's resources, other people's values, intimacy, other people's money, spouse's income, loans, debts, taxes, inheritance, sex, reproduction. You have had Uranus in your 7th house de-stabilizing partners,  partnerships and professional contracts over the last seven years, now he moves into the space of how you share resources with other people. First challenge, almost immediately will come through Mars squaring Uranus from your 5th house of creative projects, your self-expression, what you give birth to, children, romance and recreation. Impulsive spending or sharing is possible. Over the long haul (the next seven years) Uranus will be opposing your 2nd house of money, your values, your resources and self-esteem. You are rebuilding your security from the ground up Libra! Watch your dollars.

SCORPIO/Scorpio Rising - Uranus (CHANGE) is moving into your 7th house of partners and partnerships. Expect some upheaval and changes within your relationships over the next seven years Scorpio. Partners could be less reliable and more unpredictable. Also more spontaneous and exciting. You will probably learn to stop second guessing other people and to rely more solidly on yourself. Over the last seven years with Uranus in your 6th house you could have found yourself continually updating your job skills or health habits. Your day-to-day activities and pet issues should stabilize a bit now. First challenge to that partnership house, almost immediately will come through Mars squaring Uranus from your 4th house of home, family, your roots, mother, mothering, your ancestry, real estate or a home business. Over the long haul (the next seven years) Uranus will be opposing your 1st house of yourself so changes from the outside world that you likely can't control could dictate changes for you. Stay on top of your health now. Stay flexible - I know this is like telling a piece of steel to stay flexible, but steel can bend, too Scorpio! New people will come into your life, probably people you would never expect to come into partnership with (business, friendship, romance). Start a yoga practice. Think - FLEXIBILITY.

SAGITTARIUS/ Sagittarius Rising - Uranus (CHANGE) is moving into your 6th house of day-to-day activities, your routine, work, co-workers, pets and your health. Your daily life is going to change, maybe several times, over the next few years Sag! Expect eye opening revelations about what doing the same old thing is going to get you. Your job could change - as a result of your action or it could be forced upon you - either way Uranian changes create greater freedom. Your health/diet routine could be upended with a diagnosis or you could take it upon yourself to make needed changes. First challenge, almost immediately will come through Mars squaring Uranus from your 3rd house of communication, information, writing, siblings, transportation or your local neighborhood. Maybe an impulsive/demanding (angry?) conversation/information/idea comes at you out of left field. Over the long haul (the next seven years) Uranus will be opposing your 12th house of what is hidden or put away or done behind the scenes, secrets, the ethereal realms, imagination, hospitals, spirituality, addiction, healing. Likely multiple tickets to freedom will be offered to you over the next few years Sag. Your daily life will look totally different by the time Uranus exits Taurus!

CAPRICORN/Capricorn Rising - Uranus (CHANGE) is moving into your 5th house of creative projects, your self-expression, what you give birth to, children, romance and recreation. A new development could happen fast and YES you are the one who created this. With Uranus in your 4th house of home and family for the last several years you may have changed houses or had people move in or out of your home. Maybe you started or ended a home business. Maybe you got into real estate or renovation. Maybe you have worked through family patterns that have been limiting your choices/decisions. Any turbulent (up and down) family situations should begin to smooth out. First challenge, almost immediately though will come through Mars squaring Uranus from your 2nd house of money, your values, your resources and self-esteem. If you are the one pushing for something that is a real stretch financially there is a caution here. Over the long haul (the next seven years) Uranus will be opposing your 11th house of the collective - your friendships, groups, causes, the internet, the public, the goals that bring you into relationship with other people, your advancement, technology. You are being handed a Uranian lightning bolt of creativity Capricorn use it wisely.

AQUARIUS/Aquarius Rising - Uranus (CHANGE) is moving into your 4th house of home, family, your roots, mother, mothering, your ancestry, real estate or a home business. Over the next several years you will likely move or someone will move into or out of your house. A home business could start or end. You might be involved in real estate or renovation. You will likely work through family patterns that have been limiting your choices/decisions or creating isolation or move away from a family situation that is limiting you. First challenge, almost immediately though will come through Mars squaring Uranus from your 1st house. Maybe an action you take will disrupt the family situation? Over the long haul (the next seven years) Uranus will be opposing your 10th house of your career, your calling, your achievements, your achievement goals, dad, business, authority, responsibility. Changes here may involve situations outside your control and we know you like to be in control Aquarius - remember our mantra now - change is good. A bigger life is heading your way Aquarius - you can exhale now!

PISCES/Pisces Rising - Uranus (CHANGE) is moving into your 3rd house of communication, information, writing, siblings, transportation or your local neighborhood. Your fixed ideas and way of thinking will be shaken up over the next several years. You will learn new things, write, read, maybe even speak an entirely new language! With Uranus in your 2nd house of income over the last few years it is likely your money/resources have been up and down. You learned how to be flexible, trust yourself to move on from any losses and reach out for sudden opportunities. With Uranus in your 3rd house there will be sudden conversations, ideas, teachings that will propel you in new directions. First challenge, almost immediately though will come through Mars squaring Uranus from your 12th house of what is hidden or put away or done behind the scenes, secrets, the ethereal realms, imagination, hospitals, spirituality, addiction, healing. Maybe a secret is spilled or something happening behind the scenes starts the ball rolling somehow. Avoid self-sabotage and keep a cool head. Over the long haul (the next seven years) Uranus will be opposing your 9th house of travel, higher education, weddings, politics, legal issues, the media, publishing, foreigners, everything outside your comfort zone, exploration, your beliefs and higher thinking. Your connections with other people will deepen dear Pisces as your patterns of communication do a 180!
