Uranus in Taurus
Revolution of Values and Money
2018 to 2026
We have the most unpredictable, unconventional and genius planet moving into the sign that hates change most - time to wake up and dance as the very foundations of what we call "security" are thrown over and re-drawn.
It's hard to predict exactly what will happen during a seven year cycle but we can take a good guess what the flavour of it may look like. If we go back to 2011 when Uranus entered Aries and see how this electrifying rebel expressed itself in the raw fire sign we may get an idea.
Uranus entered Aries in the spring of 2011 and with that closely juxtaposed was the Egyptian uprising. We saw many such uprisings during the last 7 years. It fits the symbolism by the show of the self (a nation, culture, country) overwhelmingly taking their place and fighting back. We saw many during this window of time - Syria, Bahrain, Yemen, Libya. We've also seen the resulting upheaval and aftermath of displaced people, and that replacing one leader doesn't' guarantee the next is better.
Uranus in Taurus will have a different flavour
Now we have the most security loving sign beset with revolutionary energy. Aries is always ready for a challenge, change or war, fight a cause - plow in there and see what happens. Taurus would rather stay home with a good glass of wine and a warm couch.
When Uranus moves into this comfort loving sign we will see ironically an even greater resistance to change than ever. Taurus digs in it's heels and says, "Oh no you don't!" It will fight tooth and nail to keep it's values and security in place. It will resent anyone trying to even suggest it could be taken from them.
Uranus will now take aim at the core values of a society. It will challenge your notion of materialism, banking systems, the "right and wrongs" of family codes, domestic life and arrangements, food and security of our food among other things. Taurus is loyal and can be possessive in order to keep their world safe and comfortably secure, but Uranus will shake this up. When you try to shake people's loyalties and security you will awaken the monster within of survivalism. There could be more extremism during these next 7 years.
Some will try to hoard resources as never before, and the arising needs that creates can rouse up an equal rebellion to equalise things again.
On a domestic level we may see more people seeking their financial independence and generally breaking free of the "system" including family or social systems we usually think of as providing stability.
Sometimes we may see Uranus - this lightning bolt - in a literal way shaking up the earth with seismic activity as well. At the same time we will likely see a revolution in the way we grow and farm, provide our food and basic shelter. We may also see a big change in movements that bring us back to the land, back to bartering or parallel economies to avoid the "system" that may now be in upheaval.
The most scary side of this could potentially be what tends to happen when people feel threatened - we blame certain groups or ethnicity and start to exclude then persecute them in order to preserve our illusion of sameness and control of our environments, giving people a sense of belonging and safety. Let's hope we have evolved beyond this getting to such extremes as it did 80 years ago.
The last time we had Uranus in Taurus was 1934 to 1942 - the Great Depression up to the Second World War.

"Uranus in Taurus asks you ‘How are you not free, when it comes to money? When it comes to houses and apartments?’ Classically when Uranus lands in a new sign, people realise they had no idea, just how trapped they were. It’s rather like the familiarity of life under lock and key. Until the door opens you become habitually used to confinement. Uranus in Taurus from May 2018 will first shock us, then – over a number of years – show us very clearly, just how ‘free’ we were not.
Freedom for you may revolve around credit card debt, or mortgage debt, or the tax system. Perhaps it’s about the impossibly high price of houses or apartments, where we live (or even where we were born). London is a case in point. Sydney is a case in point. New York is a case in point. One thing is sure. If you put this question to any group of people in your world, you’ll see the tension. No system which keeps the majority down, ever lasts on a Uranus transit. This is a storm cloud building. When Uranus finally moves into Taurus, the rebellion will begin. There will be moments from 2018-2026 when the Storming of the Bastille looks like a tea party." http://www.jessicaadams.com
The plus side of Uranus is innovation and breaking down of old beliefs and rules that allow for more freedom in the future. Something we came to count on or never question now gets thrown into the fire for examination. With the transformations to come financially, materially and in our core business and family values, we can see enormous progress in good ways as well. Allowing our economy to be re-drawn so it is more equitable is a huge and upsetting shift, but a necessary shift to make. Looking at the tribal ways we run our corporations and some families is also quite upsetting to break free from, but once again we can see more equality and freedoms and growth if we do. There will be enormous resistance - as is normal with any profound change and healing.
The ultimate job of Uranus is to liberate us by showing us where the old stale cracks are, and allowing them to break so the light gets in.
