In May 2018, I wrote about the Uranus in Taurus era, and some possible manifestations. Today we review our journey so far, and offer glimpses of what is to come.
When I first gave you this, Uranus was at the end of the end of Aries, entering Taurus just after the New Moon at 25 Taurus in May 2018. As it will continue to occupy Taurus until July 2025, I thought a look back and look forward would be useful at this time, keeping in mind the extraordinary events which have happened these past 3 years.
Originally published as “Uranus in Taurus - The Advent of A New Era,” it was a time when Uranus danced on the cusp between late Aries and early Taurus between May 2018 and March 2019, when it re-entered Taurus and has been there since. As I offered you in May 2018,
Uranus in Aries has shown us the promise of a new way of Being and acting in new directions these past 7 years, and Taurus stabilizes and anchors Aries energy in simple utilitarian concrete forms. Whenever Uranus changes signs, it brings forms of rebirth wherever we have that new sign in our birth charts. So we’re about to have a revolution and/or awakening in the sector where we have early Taurus, and certainly everyone who has planets in early Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius will experience some fairly radical changes over the next couple of years!
Uranus individualizes us according to the Higher Law of our Being. It shows us our creative uniqueness, and can bring forth radical changes that move us into new directions we've never known, or bring forth specialized manifestations of individualizing patterns we've accepted.
So what can we expect from Uranus in Taurus? While it certainly augurs the advent of a new 7-year era, as well as initiating the second stage in the new 84-year era we began in 2010, it's not the first time nor the last time it's been in the determined, calm, steady, and durable “let’s enjoy life for all it’s worth” sign of Taurus. We’ll discuss some past Uranus in Taurus epochs in a future article.
So though we can expect "revolutionary developments" over the next 7 years, these will be of an Taurus nature, , just as the "revolutionary developments" of 2010-2018 were of an Aries nature, and the "revolutionary developments" of 2003-2011 were of a Pisces nature, and the "revolutionary developments" of 1995-2003 were of an Aquarian nature. We're ALWAYS going through "revolutionary developments" on Earth, just of different natures affecting different parts of our reality.
Grounding the Spiritual in the Material World
When it comes to the pervasive, far-reaching events accompanying any “invisible outer” transit, remember that the invisible is grounded in the visible, i.e., any outer invisible transpersonal influence will also manifest through a transit of the “Sacred Seven” visible planets. That’s why it can take many months or even years for these transpersonal spiritual influences to be evident. The "Sacred Seven" planets anchor the Divine quartet of Uranus, Neptune, Pluto, and TransPluto in various forms according to their various cycles.
That's why the Plutonic seeds planted in collective consciousness by Neptune and awakened in individual consciousness by Uranus may take a while before they can be seen in their true nature and broadest expression. It takes Saturn to give structure to a thing, and it takes Jupiter to expand a thing into a grand vision or adventure.
Uranus awakens. Taurus, the sign of the seed growing quickly from sprout to plant, absorbing life force and transmuting it through photosynthesis into the strength of the growing stalk, seeks to stabilize the life force of Aries by the natural force of steady growth. Taurus is definitely a calming and stabilizing influence, but also refuses all it cannot “own” and will dig in and fight without quarter (even if in a passive way) those who would usurp its field of activity or power in that field.
Taurus is also a leadership type of energy, less impulsive and “do it alone” than Aries, intent on securing and stabilizing the initiatives set into motion by that sign. It tends the seeds in its field of activity, nurturing them and protecting them as they grow into large things that bear fruit in their own seasons. Aries spreads the 10,000 seeds that are being continually planted by Life itself, but doesn’t tend them. That’s the job of Taurus.
Each Responds In Their Own Way to Pervasive Spiritual Influences
Because of the nature of human individuality and circumstances, Uranus in Taurus is impacting each of us differently, since we've each developed different ways of responding to natal, progressed, or transiting Taurus energy. Because there are both "good" disruptions as well as "bad" ones, this has been a time of the rebirth of the concept of “good trouble” during the very destructive disruptions of the past 3 years. Uranus often accompanies abrupt creative turns to the new, since even a daunting challenge is better than staying where there is no more life electricity. To offer a piece from the original article,
…. this is just one more step in the Eternal Dance of human evolution. As I pointed out earlier, there have been many such times in history! While there will be periods these next 7 years (and beyond!) that seem very disruptive, there have always been such times. At some point a status quo must end, and anything that effects that revolution will be seen as disruptive.
As we move from the old era to the new, it will be helpful to remember that we are collectively birthing a new view of Life, Matter, Energy, Light, Magnetism, and Electricity. We've already made great strides since the end of the Kali Yuga over these past 300 years, and now are fully entering the Dwapara Yuga, said to be the Great Age of "Electromagnetic Remembrance."
As Uranus is "the Awakener," the Brahmanic Divine Force of the Law of Synthesis, we will see the emergence of the new Divine Seeds that were set when Pluto conjuncted the Galactic Center between 2006-2011. This is the emergent point in Cosmic Time, when new laws, new order, new structures, new governments, new disciplines, and a new sense of responsibility is coming upon the human race.
As we individually act, as we individually create, as we individually synthesize, a more efficient (and hopefully enjoyable and rewarding!) way of doing our Being will come forth. This is the time when many things that have seemed stable up to now will go through radical changes!
It may be that revolutionary new developments will occur in the world of money, commerce, resources, goods, and even the supply chains that distribute these to various areas of life. We could see disruptions in the money supply, the credit supply, the food supply, and much that we thought was previously stable. Still, it’s all teaching us to live free, adapt in the moment, keep our focus on the Eternal, and like the Fool in the Tarot, step off the precipice into a new individuality in the area Uranus is transiting in our chart.
Uranus is the Higher Law driving us toward individualization. The Seeker who danced on the edge of the threshold in the Summer of 2010 and has been on a new life adventure since then is now demanded to live a dynamic new phase of that adventure! A line from Lucille Clifton seems apropos here: "You might as well answer the door my child, the truth is furiously knocking!
We now have the benefit of hindsight for what Uranus in the first half of Taurus has brought. I think it’s safe to say we’ve had severe disruptions in everything mentioned a couple of paragraphs up, and yet found new ways to stabilize what we could, within the limits of a great awakening which cannot be controlled.
Uranus will go stationary retrograde at 15 Taurus on August 19, and retrograde back to 11 Taurus by January 2022. (I’ll be posting the Uranus stationary retrograde article in a couple of weeks.) It will then move forward again, crossing into the second half of Taurus in May 2022, beginning its occupancy of the last half of Taurus lasting through July 2025, when it enters Gemini. After a brief reprise when it re-enters the last face of Taurus between November 2025 and April 2026, we’ll resume the Uranus in Gemini era, promising revolutionary developments in the realm of ideas!
In the next article, we'll explore more of what we can expect during Uranus’ transit of the second half of Taurus, as well as some important aspects coming which promise a wild ride between now and 2025!
