The meaning of Uranus in Taurus, 2018-2026

Uranus in TaurusUranus is one of the three outer planets that represent transformational forces in the astrological pantheon.  Unlike Venus, Mars, Jupiter etc. which all represent an aspect of the personality, the outer planets (Uranus, Neptune and Pluto) inspire us to go beyond the limitations of our personality as signified by the natal chart.

On a personal level, Uranus demands that we find our own path that is our exclusive authentic journey, breaking away from the shackles of the expectations that force us to live a life that is not true for the individual that we know ourselves to be.  On a global level, as Uranus transits through the signs of the zodiac, it shatters paradigms and has the potential to create chaos as it dismantles the established order of things in order to create a new way.  Uranus is the libertarian – the egalitarian, the seeker of freedom and brotherhood among humans.  It’s synchronistic that the French revolution of 1789-1799 occurred just after the discovery of Uranus, with the call of “liberté, egalité, fraternité” – all symbols of the Uranian archetype.

Uranus has been in Aries for the past seven years and you can read more about that here. While in Aries, the sign of aggression, Uranus oversaw the splintering of governments into small bands of revolutionaries and the proliferation of gun violence around the world. Under Venus-ruled Taurus, the force of aggression we have seen over the past seven years is likely to calm down somewhat, but there will be a pulling in and contracting of spending and a corresponding recession. This is not a time for financial speculation or risk taking, at least until we see exactly what kinds of energies we are looking […]

Planetary news this week: Prepare for fog and magic!

Feeling a little fuzzy lately? It could be that four planets and luminaries are all in mystical, magical Pisces.  Pisces inspires dreams and soul-opening experiences that expand us into heretofore unexplored realms of consciousness and bliss.  However, everything astrological has a dark side and a light side, and the dark side of Pisces is confusion and lack of motivation.

This week’s trip through Pisces is like an adventure into the land of faery… everything seems brighter and more beautiful, but we are apt to get lost into the mists of time.

Accelerating this potential for faery-land is the fact that Neptune, the modern ruler of Pisces which shares these attributes of magic and bliss but also confusion, is strongly aspecting all of the involved planets (Mercury, Venus, Chiron) and the Sun until March 6th and 7th when Venus and Mercury respectively will move into Aries and fire up our engines for re-entry into the real world.

Until then, this is a wonderful time for any kind of spiritual activity or anything that requires imagination and creative flow.  Meditation, creative writing or artistic work, musical expression – these are all perfect activities for the next couple of weeks. This will be a more difficult time for major decisions, so if you have to make one (unfortunately life doesn’t always wait for the perfect astrological timing) strap on your reality glasses and try to be sure you are seeing the real world as clearly as possible.

In any case – enjoy the magic, and allow any potential fog to take you into magical places that without it, you would never have discovered!

Mercury retrograde in 2018 and 2019

When Mercury is retrograde we often see communication and equipment snafus, and things not going according to plan.  There is a "shadow" period lasting about a week on either side when Mercury's movement is slower than normal. These are excellent times for planning and reflection but not good times to begin something new.
