Uranus in Taurus
Uranus blows in the winds of change
breaking us out of our ruts through disruption as a New Era begins
March 2019 - July 2025
Uranus is a sign for 7 years. The Planet Uranus changes signs every 7 years and brings with it change, unexpected events, and sometimes complete upheaval. Uranus tosses us outside our comfort zone to experience life "outside the box". The winds of change blow as Uranus moves our life into new and different directions, giving us experiences that we had not planned on or thought would occur in our life by any stretch of the imagination. In our logical, systematic thought process, we walk along our pathway in life, yet at other times particular events create the change of a lifetime. The Planet of Uranus is usually the instigator and messenger of such changes.
Because Uranus stays in one sign for SEVEN years, it is described by many as the planet that is the testing ground of the "disciple". Often the experiences, during a SEVEN year cycle of Uranus while in a particular sign, bring in the same type of challenges over and over again, regardless of what we do, and regardless of the efforts to thrust change. It is as if the events are not connected to our actions at all, but instead are occurring to see how we "respond" to the events. This is especially true in those events that are seemingly unfairly set against us. These type of events are the tell-tale sign of this SEVEN year testing ground for disciples of Truth, and usually occur as Uranus creates a square to major planets within our chart. To understand the squares, trines, conjunctions and oppositions to Uranus within our chart, allows us to gain knowledge of the essence and purpose of these times and how they fit into our Life Journey.
Doorway signs are those signs that at a challenged angle to Uranus. Typically in astrology, much is written about squares in a negative perspective. However, squares are like stairs, they allow us to make major steps upward. Squares are also needed to make major transitions from one room to another, from one way of life to another lifestyle. The true doorway is square, ultimately giving us the opportunity to make an archway out of the transition, by seeing the higher purpose of the arch through the square. Uranus in a sign for SEVEN years creates positive easy trines, or challenging side winds of squares, or power struggles of unfairness in oppositions and rags to riches (or visa versa) with conjunctions. It is all for the purpose to bring about greater understanding and spiritual evolution, individually and globally.
The shift of Uranus into Taurus occurred on March 2019 and stays throughout this current nine-year cycle til 2025. This shift creates changes for a 7-year generation period. Additionally, the changes impact us personally and globally. With Uranus moving into Taurus there are two other planetary configurations that come into assist in creating the change of our stage and to bring in key elements of importance. Jupiter and Saturn move into Aquarius in 2020, which is square to Taurus, which requires our shift of values toward the elements of humanitarian fairness and equality. Read Jupiter and Saturn.
