Cycle: Forward Motion
Date: May15th 2018 - November 6th 2018
March 7th 2019 - July 2025
Uranus leaves Aries, moving into Taurus May 15th until November 8th, when it moves back into Aries, then permanently into Taurus March 7th 2019.
Uranus is one of the three planets that have a generational influence as well as personal, the other planets being Neptune and Pluto. Uranus brings unexpected change, new situations, new people and surprises, The “message” being move forward with the changes that are presented and don’t fear the future, try to make it work. It’s the planet of sudden upheaval and swift unexpected happenings.
Wherever Uranus is located in a birth chart, it denotes self-expression/originality - a person who is attracted to an unusual line of work, odd types of people, creative styles, an interest in science, latest world discoveries, unique ideas, experiences flashes of insight out of nowhere, an innovative thinker using unorthodox methods (good or bad).
This Uranus in Taurus cycle ushers in unforseen changes of financial fortune/personal resources and value systems. Financial increases will come from natural resources, natural inventions and discoveries, anything connected to the Eco-system and the planet that is of the future. Luxury items made from natural resources will come to the forefront , in addition to natural beauty regimens and products.
Taurus is an Earth Sign and rules money, material possessions, self-worth, jewelry, banking and the economy to name just a few of its attributes. With both Pluto and Saturn in Capricorn and Earth Signs too, Land, Real Estate and Natural Resources will become important and go through dramatic upheavals and change, including world economies, which could also experience upheavals, leading to a change in currency/value.
Uranus in this sign could possibly bring about a reversal of fortune for some, depending on whether an individual is in harmony with Natural Law (Saturn), is honest in their financial dealings, helps others and is wiling to share their wealth/resources with those less fortunate. Uranus in Taurus is a good combination as it provides willpower and determination to get things done through patient perseverance and effort. Disruption will occur with this particular aspect when decisions are made without forethought of affect and holding onto old value systems that are not in harmony with the guidance/direction the Universe which results in unnecessary chaos.
Overall the people who will most benefit form the Uranus in Taurus transit are those that are open to establishing innovative ideas of a practical nature, that can reap financial reward not only for themselves but have a “ripple affect” into the lives of others.
The affirmation “anothers need is my command, my needs are already the command of the Universe” is really the key to prosperity during this 7 year cycle.
Money: 2018 is not going to be a boring year. the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Leo affects your foundation of life, home and family, therefore don’t be surprised if you move or some type of living re-arrangement takes place. When the New Moon Solar Eclipse in Aquarius happens on the 15th, career, goals and ambitions will be altered, in conjunction with authority and power. However you could be held back from completely making the changes you envision, because of past mistakes, old debts, sudden setback and disappointment. However, don’t be deterred.
The July 12th, New Moon Solar Eclipse in Cancer will present new opportunities. alternatives that provide answers to get to the next level of your achievements. Plus the support will be there. By the time the New Moon Solar Eclipse in Aquarius arrives July 27th career change could happen unexpectedly, not necessarily of your doing, but because of others. Don’t fret. The New Moon Solar Eclipse in Leo, August 11th, should make you happy as a new home environment is presented to you, that is definitely to your liking.
The period of time to be careful, is during the Mars retrograde in Aquarius, June 26th - August 27th. You could receive a lot of career offers that motivate the feeling you need to take advantage of them now, there may even be pressure to act quickly. But because it’s Mars retrograde, the offer or some aspect of what’s presented will be short-lived. This is fine, if you look at it as a small stepping-stone. Anything more than that will not work out or last as long as you expect, it will only be temporary.
Jupiter moving into Sagittarius November 8th - December 3rd 2019, will give you the impetus to expand beyond joint financial partnerships, to explore something new that has more growth potential. You’ll have a year to start something new with people of like-mind. During this cycle, you will have to face karma connected to joint financial partnerships and the fact there are hidden truths that you’re unaware of, that will be brought to light. Mercury retrograde in Sagittarius, November 16th - December 6th, will be time for reflection and straightforward honesty about the current form and actual status of financial objectives. Remember don’t sign anything while Mercury is retrograde and pay attention to misinformation.
Ultimately, especially when Jupiter moves into Sagittarius November 8th, you’ll be influenced to expand your horizons and have a broader perspective of prospects available to you. Therefore, with Pluto being joined by Saturn in Capricorn, in your house of good luck, studies, expansion, beliefs, literary, long-distance travel/other cultures, you’ll also be looking at your life and the people in it that hold you back. Your own personal beliefs that feed into fear, insecurity and doubt, then cause stagnation. You should be moving forward a lot quicker, so the Universe is going to give you a “push” in the right direction.
Sex: With Jupiter in Scorpio until November 8th, in your house of long-term love and Venus in Scorpio October 6th November 16th. With these two aspects the universe is trying to show you the weaknesses in the relationship between you and your partner/love-life and what needs to change. Honesty would be a good place to start. You both need to decide what you want from each other, the type of relationship would make you happy and if you’re both willing to put in the necessary work/commitment to allow it to grow beyond its current level. With Uranus in Taurus May 15th - November 6th, then permanently March 7th 2019 - July 2025, your charm level will be high and attract new relationships which could be an irritant for existing ones. Therefore new boundaries and freedoms will have to be decided and redefined. Jupiter is a magnifying glass and always highlights the good and not so good of the house it’s in. Basically, do you want to face/deal or deal with the truth of what is going on? The most important thing to remember with these two transits is, they’re both in Scorpio. A sign that “says”anything that has deteriorated can be transformed if the willingness is there. Scorpio is the sign of the Phoenix rising from it’s own ashes to be reborn. Therefore, nothing is impossible. Don’t give up hope. The impossible can be made possible in the area of love in 2018.
Power: With Uranus in your sign May 15th - November 6th, then permanently March 7th 2019 - July 2025. The Universe will urge you to change what./who you perceive is of worth and value, being able to be more flexible in your opinions and the way you present Self to the world, so that people are able to see you in a new light and appreciate your worth and value, which will come in the form of financial opportunities. Your personal magnetism will be at its best, motivating you to want to capitalize on offers that come your way. New friends will be attracted to this magnetism and want to be around you. Your viewpoint of what you can achieve will also change giving you a different perspective of possibilities available to you. With Uranus in Taurus, the “sky will be the limit”, so don’t “sell yourself short”.
While Uranus is in Aries, now - May 15th, then for the last time November 6th - March 7th 2019, you could face disappointment because of others not following through with commitments, promises or right action. This is because you gave them qualities they don’t possess and you chose to believe what you were being told. In addition, you’ll have to stand up for what is right, with clear thought and action. Mercury retrograde in Aries, March 22nd - April 15th, will motivate you to be more introspective and even consider yoga/some the of spiritual modality. Be careful with possessions you could actually lose something during this time.
The one thing to watch out for in 2018, is being too idealistic, with Neptune in Pisces affecting your house of groups friends, hopes, wishes and idealism. It’ll be very easy to see the “silver lining’ in everything and everyone, but with this particular aspect, deception, whether from Self or others is prominent. The danger of viewing people/situations through “rose-colored glasses”, and being too stubborn to see things any other way, becoming selfish, ignoring the needs of others, plus the truth and reality of what is really going on around you and your life. If you can keep a clear head and focus (meditation will help), you’ll remain in harmony with the Universe and guided to success.
Date:April 17th - September 6th
April begins with 2 more retrogrades, Saturn and Pluto, both in the sign of Capricorn. Saturn will initiate a cycle of gong back to review weak structures that cause instability and potentially affect some aspect of career goals and ambitions, authority/power. If weaknesses are not strengthened or reinforced it’ll be hard to maintain smooth progress moving forward. Saturn also being the planet of karma, will be a big issue to confront, giving each person the opportunity to put right wrongdoing either from Self or others. Digging deep to understand the “lesson” the Universe is trying to “teach”. A time to take responsibility and be a positive Cause for a positive Affect. Saturn always “rewards” work well done and karma that’s overcome. Therefore to turn a “blind eye” to situations will only make things worse, creating problems and difficulties that will be hard to deal with later. This emphasis being even stronger with Pluto retrograde in Capricorn too. Saturn is the planet that brings order where there is chaos and helps to transform oppression into freedom, whether self-imposed or brought on by others.
Date: April 22nd - September 30th
Pluto retrograde in Capricorn will be poised to bring upheaval to outworn foundations of life and society, that no longer serve a positive purpose. The misuse and abuse of money, sex and power will be hard to keep hidden or secret. Pluto is the ruler of Scorpio and Scorpio rules the 8th house. Pluto represents secret enemies, occult, past lives, joint financial partnerships, sex, the afterlife, taxes, power, surgery, corruption, criminals, endings. legacies, destruction, research, detectives, dictators, earthquakes (physical and symbolic), espionage, reincarnation, rebirth, rejuvenation, regeneration, renewal, upheaval, suicides, treachery and bad luck, to name just a few associations of this planet.
Pluto retrograde is a time to “clean house”, to transform the negative to the positive, removing everyone and everything that is debilitating, destructive and treacherous in one’s life. Only then can the Universe fill the void with better things, people and situations. However, this is something that must be affirmed for this to manifest fully. Expect changes in government (Capricorn), and secrets brought to light, during this particular retrograde. Power structures are destined to fail and fall that do not support, serve or work towards building a safe and strong structure for the greater good of all. Pluto retrograde will bring up fear, insecurity and doubts from the past to also confront, so that each person can learn how to become fearless in the face of adversity. To be the Phoenix arising from the ashes of despair and darkness towards hope and the Light.
