Uranus in Taurus : 6 March 2019 – 26 April 2026
Within 24 hours of The New Moon & Mercury Retrograde, in Pisces, Uranus makes its ingress into Taurus on March 6, augmenting the final outer planet shift, establishing the dominant earth vibe which is traveling with us till the mid 2020’s.
Uranus, the great awakener moving into the fixed earth of Taurus, is a volatile meeting of two energies from opposite sides of the spectrum. Uranus, a mover and shaker whose main objective is to destabilise, in order to innovate. Taurus is a slow mover and lacks a desire to change. During this transit, Taurus will be required to move from its sometimes, entrenched space into something more flexible and innovative. Taurus is the most fixed of the 3 fixed signs, is about to be awoken from its slumber.
Like all outer planet transits, Uranus in Taurus will be affecting people on both a macro and micro scale, with the changes that develop over the next 7 years, revolutionising both our lives and society. The last time Uranus was in Taurus we saw, The Great Depression (changes in money value and food scarcity), The rise and outbreak of World War 2 (fixed values and ideas, creating destabilizing politics and world conflict, created by extremist values), Women joining the work force due to the War ( revolutionizing the work environment forever) and the changing of food and food staples (due to war and technological advances), which began the mechanize food production. i.e. the chocolate cookie being invented during the last transit.
The past reflects, Uranus in Taurus being a cycle of large financial change in domestic and globally money trades. The current over valuation of the housing market and luxury items are an obvious place to look to, for this upcoming cycle. The evidence of this financial correction has been speculated, with the effects already being felt as we move towards the actual ingress. This is just the beginning of the corrections of housing values. Climate change (Taurus being an earth sign) also will have its hand in influencing this correction. Erosion for coastal property, flooding and fires, with the problem of what happens when your property becomes uninsurable against natural disaster. How does that affect most people’s greatest asset.
On the eve of the ingress we are currently experiencing Brexit, overspendature on a personal and government levels in many western economies, an over dependance on single economies ie: China, Trade Wars and a pretty damning royal commission into the Banking Industry in Australia. We are tittering on the brink, with Uranus in Taurus being part of the catalysis of change.
We are already seeing signs pin pointing to the revolutionizing of money and how we use it. Governments and Corporations are focused on cashless societies, where money is physically no longer carried, but simply numbers on a phone or screen. Never in human history have we lived without a physical money source for barter and exchange. Large cash deposits/withdraws are being scrutinized more, clamping down on cash business trade. The antithesis of this is also being concurrently explored. Bit Coin and other crypto currencies, being created and developed expanding the tools and trade, creating a new value system which allows autonomy from government and banks. These are all reflective of our changing relationship with money in the most physical sense. How we earn money through work is also rapidly changing. With the concept of having a job for life, now just a memory of a bygone era.
Beauty and Value, attributes of the Venus Rulership of Taurus, are two obvious areas to explore for Uranian revolutions. The unprecedented rise in selfie culture is a Uranus in Aries manifestation of the “Me” of Aries. The over indulgence and over stimulation of posting vacuous selfie images, is seeing more people seeking to switch off from social media accounts, or at least being more discerning, over what they view and engage with. The overuse of app filters is now seeing the introduction of body dysmorphia created by filters on social media apps. Creating a psychological and physical impact on our body and beauty standards. This increase in demand is fuelling the cosmetic surgery industry to service new demands for people wanting to look more like their Instagram filter self.
The tide is shifting with this social media impact as we enter Uranus in Taurus, and we are begin to see rebellion. The damage such cosmetic products have on our bodies, will be revealed more during this transit, as these treatments are historically untested and our bodies. After all, smoking was a healthy and safe with no impact on the body, once upon a time, wasn’t it ! As we move into this new cycle young people are switching off social media, for a natural and less ‘targeted’ interaction with people and information, as well as having a closer connection to their environments. This is phase is just beginning. It will be interesting to see where our Instagram influencers are at in 7 years’ time, and what the ACTUAL impact of Botox and plastic surgery has on young bodies.
Food, is also a Taurus theme already turning its hand to innovation and pioneering change. Veganism, and alternative food sourcing are increasing due to over population, climate change and food ethics (values), these influences, along side our more sedentary lifestyle is making us “have” to change the way we eat. Mother earth can no longer provide for us, as our populations spirals out of control.
As we enter Uranus in Taurus, we are seeing new directions for food production and consumption. Lab grown or plant-based meats are being researched and developed. With the look and taste of meat, but with-out the need to factory farm or kill animals. Imagine if Uranus in Taurus stopped us killing bulls for food !
3D printing has been suggested as a potential area of food development, with short falls of food in situations of famine or crop failures. Veganism and Vegetarianism has never been so popular, with expectations that demand will keep rising for it. I would expect large changes in the way we farm and source our food over the next 7 years. We are just entering this cycle, it will be interesting to look back in 7 year’s time to see how much our food source have changed and developed. Food is well on its way to being revolutionized, with some real progress expected as we enter this new Uranian cycle.
Astrology is the study of cycles, and with Uranus in Taurus we are witnessing a birthing of a new era around, food, money, wealth and beauty. History has shown us how potent, the Uranus in Taurus transits can be. To get a head start, the best strategy is to be open for change, in the above and below areas of life. Minimizing and clearing as much debt as possible is also essential for this new earth era. Also look to last years preview when Uranus went into Taurus – 16 May – Nov 2018, to see what and where you will see Uranus’s seeds of innovation crack open for the next 7 years, creating more freedom and choice (Uranus) to health, finances and personal values (Taurus).

Virgo’s love to really pull apart a subject and get to know the details and contents well. This transit will be occurring in your travel and higher learning sectors. The paths or how you get to the topic of learning might be erratic and surprising, but there is greater learnings and lessons around the synchronicity or spontaneous way that opportunities to explore such subjects will be discovered and explored. A little more adaptable than your earth cousin Taurus, you might not naturally be inclined to be so spontaneous, but your adaptability and fluid nature means you will naturally find your feet in this new “earth” terrain. Say yes to travel and study, to help broaden your scope.
Libra, Uranus in Taurus, will be creating a bit of volatility and change around your relationships with other people’s money, or money that is not yours. i.e.: Taxes, Loans, Debts, inheritance. Be mindful of this as you step into this new earth era. Ideas to gain such money, might not be as straight forward to action as initially thought, or there might be more unexpected requirements. Old access to external money sources may disappear. This is all tied to the bigger cycles that are occurring in the world around you. Don’t fret, this is about improving and eventual freedom and liberation from old debts. But from the introduction of this transit, other peoples money should be seen as being in flux, this includes your partners money. Debt reduction is essential.
Scorpio, your relationships with other people, both work and personal, will be activated during this 7 years transit in your opposing sign. Do you value them ? Do they value you ? What role do you play in all this upheavel ? There is a change in the exchange of your relationships, which might feel erratic or surprisingly different. This is all about sorting the snakes from the woodpile, as well as looking at your influence within this dynamic. If the earth does shift around your nearest and dearest, its fundamental role is to create an environment in which your relationships become of greater value to both sides. Don’t look away, if ignored, it will just keep presenting in different and more confrontational ways.
Sagittarius, the Body, Health and Day to Day routines is where you will be seeing mini revolutions occurring in your life. What you eat, how you exercise, if you exercise and maximizing your day will be how this Uranian energy will be reflected in your daily life. Remember, there isn’t a choice in this, so any changes to the above will help you in the long run. Health is the New Wealth, use it or lose it.
Capricorn’s will see changes in and around their creative life, with the end game being things you truly love and inspire being brought forward and centre stage into your life. There can be many excuses as to why creative activities or creating a life you truly love, has been put to the side, to be worked on ‘later’. Life is short – Uranus in Taurus is all about shaking solid ground. The focus will be on, being pro active in bringing things you truly love and creativity centre stage. Do this before events conspire forcing you to see; why doing what you love and valuing creativity is the ONLY way, to truly live an inspired life. Capricorn’s don’t have to be all business, and its a fallacy that they are all workaholics. Uranus in Taurus has come along to prove it, bringing it to the forefront.
Aquarius , your life will see some shake ups around your home environments, housing and real estate as well as potentially your literal ancestry. Uranus shaking earth, can create some deep tremors. Be sure of the ground you physically live on, don’t over extend to get your dream home. Remembering to live within your means IS a liberating experience. Reducing as much household debt is a must. Your never shy to think outside the box, remember, the energy you are working with is more conservative, and volatile. Valuing your family and their input into where they have gotten you to thus far, is also a side effect of this transit, creating greater freedom, to step forwards on your own journey.
Pisces, the next 7 years sees mini revolutions sparked around your communications and methods of information management. Uranus in Taurus may require you to have more grounded and separating techniques to operate from. There maybe more of a need to assess and value the separation of feelings, thought and words. Looking at it in another way, anyone who was wishing to creatively communicate for work or pleasure, might find the internet, self publishing and new avenues of communication via technology an area of freedom and liberation. Allowing Pisces to create new visions to share with the world. Either way your communication is what is being evolved and innovated over the next 7 years. Relationships with siblings is also changing.
Aries, Uranus in Taurus will see you looking to update and revolutionise your money and How its earnt. Valuing your time, money, income will see you re-assess and look to new methods for income. Self Value comes into the mix, after having 8 years of Uranus in your sign, you know what its like to have your identity and perceptions of how you want to be in this world shift and change unexpectedly. Remember how you value yourself and how you generate your income, are linked. Over the next 7 years, circumstances may feel like they are conspiring, but they are allowing you to get onto another track, the things that might throw you, is that things that you always expected to be a given are no longer so. Reducing debt is essental.
