Uranus returned to taurus officially today, to (re)pioneer 8 years of evolution in the first earth sign itself in ways that will unforgettably ricochet into the future. a Uranus transit is like having chaos at your fingertips, ready & waiting for you to (somehow, unpredictably, mysteriously) shape it into sustainable change. Uranus in taurus is a collective transit, meaning it will directly impact everyone at some point in some way while being felt in the public|mainstream. even if you have zero planets in earth signs, Uranus in taurus will aspect something in your chart over the next 8 years/ be showing up in an area of your life with the hedonistic revelations it’s here to bring.
fire sign placements (people with planets in aries/leo/sag) had their fun, their rollercoaster ride, their renaissance de joy de vivre. their 8 year electric revival. their erratic radicalization de ocho. (this sounds hype but we know uncontrollable change after change can actually be a pain in the ass). now it’s time for those with planets in taurus/virgo/capricorn to benefit from hands on experience with The Agitator!
some of Uranus in taurus will not be particularly easy for those of us with taurus, leo, scorpio, & aquarius placements. (those on the leo/aqua axis are like—WTF!?—after two years of eclipses but trust, you’re more equipped than you think for more change). Uranus in taurus is oppositional (polarities & integration) to scorpio, square (creative tension) to leo & aquarius, & conjunct (merged) with taurus, of course. the phrase radical embodiment comes to mind for all of these interactions, which is a nonsequential cyclical practice. you will surprise yourself but in ways that may feel more solid than any breakthroughs Uranus in aries brought you.
to be respectful to Uranus, the essence of this transit is unknowable as the god of change does not operate in absolutes. however, after centuries of obersvation we can surmise that Uranus in taurus is here to revolutionize (never using that word lightly) our relationship to the security of material realms, to sensual & principled pleasure, & to the most foundational relationship in our lives—that which we have to ourselves. of course, there are a myriad of experiences/topics that coalesce into this oversimplified explanation & what we can never do is box Uranus into an expectation of manifestation.
we can anticipate the guild of Uranus in taurus & Saturn and Pluto in capricorn will absolutely change what we understand as “economics”. the entrepreneurial, environmental, & industrial worlds will undergo substantial shifts as has not happened in decades. this is where taurus invites us to center into sustainability, interdependence, & preparedness for adaptation.
this will continue to be a hot topic for the next few months (especially in the COMMUNE) & a staple of astrological conversations for the next decade. your main concern in relationship to this major shift is how it will be traveling through your own chart|life. I will be offering an interactive workshop at some point in honor of Uranus; in the meantime you can book me to talk in great detail about what the next 8 years of the Wise Fool in the sign of the primal, dedicated Bull mean for you!
