We are about on embark on an eight-year cycle that is all about shake-ups and change. The electric force of nature that is Uranus is moving into Taurus on May 15th and these two don’t get along. Taurus is a fixed, earth sign that hates change, embraces tradition and routine, and would rather admire the beauty around her than push forward towards originality and individuality. Uranus, on the other hand, is a force of nature, an electric shock that wakes you up and gets your feet moving; all it wants is change! Taurus is stubborn and incredibly hard to move; Uranus is like a pinball machine that never stops.
The tug-of-war that these two energies are going to bring forth can be difficult and exciting at the same time. You might be the type that likes a little shake up or you might cringe at the thought of your stable ground getting interrupted or the preverbal rug being pulled out from under your feet. Whether you are either of these really doesn’t matter, Uranus is entering a new sign and a new area of life for you. 2018 is going to be a transition year for us all to get used to the Uranus in Taurus energy. It will go back and forth into Aries and Taurus, but come 2019, it’s there to stay for almost a decade!
Uranus wakes us up to new possibilities, things about ourselves that might need a tune up, and also shocks the collective system into gear. We will start to see some shake ups in all areas of Taurus. Taurus rules personal money, food, stability, values, and material possessions. On a global scale, we will start to see some interesting things happening possibly around the banking system, the food industry, and what we all value on a mass scale.
On a personal level, Uranus moving into Taurus is going to be different for everyone. Wherever Taurus lands in your natal chart is what is going to be shaken up for you in the next 7-8 years. It’s important to remember to not fear Uranus. It can be uncomfortable, and yes at times shocking, but whatever it is disturbing in your life needs it! Embrace the eccentricity and the electricity of this transit in your life. Use this year to get comfortable with the new active focus in your life.

Here is a breakdown of what to expect for each house:
1stHouse-The self, your identity, appearance, and new beginnings. This is going to be the start of a completely new cycle of your life. The first house rules the body so it could be completely changing how you feel about the way you look. Take this opportunity to really dig deep and fall in love with yourself all over again. Be kind and generous to your body. Take care of yourself and love all the new and exciting things coming up.
2ndHouse-We move away from the body and the “self” and into your personal values and possessions. This house is all about personal finances, material things, and our priorities. Maybe these things are changing for you? What you valued the past 7 or 8 years is starting to seem frivolous or not in line with who you truly are. This is a time to dig deep into what is truly important to you. Do you love your job? Are you happy with your income and how you use it? Do you really need all that “stuff”? Take some time to really get to know what is worth it to you and move more towards that!
3rdHouse-Communication, the mind, and siblings! This house is all about communication with those closest to use, like our siblings. With Uranus coming through this house, there might be some shake ups and changes with the way you communicate with your loved ones and those closest to you. Uranus balks at tradition and Taurus craves it, so if you come from a traditional family and you have a sudden urge to express your individuality, this might be the decade that you do it! Remember to not get too carried away with expressing yourself to the detriment of your relationships. Understand that asserting yourself and getting your ideas out there is an important process in growing into yourself, but make sure you do it in a respectful and mature way.
4thHouse-Our home, roots, family, emotions, and self-care. This is one of those super important houses. Just like the first house that focused on the self, this one if the first house to focus on your immediate “family.” This is all about nurturing your home. With Uranus coming through an incredibly stable Taurus 4thhouse, there is bound to be some serious changes. These could be wanted or unwanted, but they are coming. You have to be able to embrace them with grit, gratitude, and a bit of a sense of humor! This could be a change in where you physically live or it could be a shakeup in family dynamics or just how you decide to nurture and care for your family and yourself going forward. Whatever you decide going forward is exactly where you need to be, try to remember that when it feels like the ground beneath your feet is a bit unhinged.
5thHouse-One of my favorites! This is the house of creativity, romance, love affairs, fertility, joy, and self-expression. With Uranus coming through this house, prepare for a new kind of creativity and expression to pour out of you. Perhaps it’s a love affair with another person, with a new baby, or maybe even with yourself! Whatever it is it’s going to be interesting! Embrace the fun factor and know that creativity comes in so many forms and some of the most creative things we do in life are the relationships we build.
6thHouse-Our house of habits, health, organization, and service. This house is about daily habits so it is closely linked with our career. Uranus coming through this house can feel a bit daunting to a person whose habits and organizational skills are as safe and secure as Taurus. Remember that getting to comfortable and stagnant in your daily routine can lead a bit of a rut. If Uranus is coming through this house for you, know that it is not on accident and there is a lot of purpose to it. You are going to have to become okay with changing your routine, exploring a different diet, or switching up how you choose to help in the world.
7thHouse-This is the house of relationships. Whether it’s a marriage, business partnership, or even a contract, this house is about how you “share” with another; this is important stuff. Uranus coming through the relationship house can be jarring, but on the other hand it could be exhilarating! Maybe your relationships have become stale and a little jolt from the eccentric planet is all you need to get your mojo back. On the other hand, Uranus could be trying to teach you something about how you go about your relationships. Do you give or take too much from your partnerships? This house craves balance and sometimes the scales are way off center. Maybe all you need is a good kick in the pants to bring more harmony into your heart.
8thHouse-This house is all about the things we don’t want to talk about: Sex, other people’s money, transformation, and all things taboo. Uranus coming through this house could prove to be quite a ride for you. The 8th house deals with loans, inheritances, joint ventures, and other’s resources. This can be a sticky subject for a lot of people so Uranus is here to make sure you don’t get too secretive or deceptive in your dealings. The wild planet wants you to be honest with yourself about making the changes you need to make. Maybe it’s sex? Shake things up with your partner and get away from the mundane energy Taurus can bring in this house. This house goes deeper than the 7thhouse of marriage and creates a bond that stands the test of time. Use the sensuality of Taurus and the eccentricity of Uranus to go deeper with your partner. Maybe it’s money? You don’t have to do what everybody else is doing, Uranus might throw you some curve balls that make you want to express your individuality with what you invest in. Maybe it’s about transformation? You could be feeling a ripple in your waters that is calling you to really examine yourself on the deepest level. This house is the most mysterious, and so are you my friend! Don’t be afraid of the dark, sometimes it’s where you find the best parts of yourself.
9thHouse-The 3rd house was all about our minds on a very surface level; communicating with people. The 9thhouse takes it higher and brings about wisdom, philosophy, travel, spirituality, and ethics. The 3rd house was the teacher and the 9th house is the guru. When Uranus comes through this house you might be changing the way you think about the world. Maybe you take a life-changing trip abroad and realize the world is not how you assumed it to be. You could come face to face with cultures that broaden your perspective and expand your heart. You could also actually become the “guru.” Maybe you get sudden opportunities to teach others some of your wisdom. Whatever you experience over these next 8 years is going to change you forever and could possibly change many other people you touch along the way.
10thHouse-Just like the 1st, 4th, and 7th houses this is a big one! The 10th house represents our career. If you have Taurus here, you are probably a lover of all the earthy , grounded jobs out there. Maybe you are a horticulturalist, a chef, yoga teacher, or even a musician! Whatever you do, you like to use all your senses while you do it. Uranus coming through your house of career can be a major shock. You could experience a complete change in your work. Because this house also represents how the public perceives you, maybe there is a change in your status. This could be a really good thing. Having such a stable and stubborn sign in this house makes for a loyal employee, but sometimes one that stays in a place they have outgrown. Uranus is the pushy manager that lets you know, not so delicately, that it’s time to move on. Are you ready for your next chapter?
11thHouse-Friendships, your “tribe”, humanitarianism, and the future. The 5th house was all about personal creativity and presence, this house is about collective creativity and looking towards the future. If you have Taurus here you are already a very stable “innovator”, but maybe things have gotten a little stagnant in terms of getting out in your community and building a lasting future. Uranus is coming in to push you towards your destiny with a bit of a kooky twist. Maybe what you thought your future looked like changes in an instant. Maybe you finally find your “people” and you become involved in causes that lift you up and create a spark in you that may just change the world! Whatever is in store for you, it’s going to benefit a collection of individuals, so be mindful, think outside the box, and hold on tight. Your train is moving fast!
12thHouse-Endings, healing, closure, karma, and the subconscious. This house is the collection of all the houses in one. We started with beginnings in the 1sthouse and we end with the 12th. This house is considered the “house of dreams.” It’s where we rest and find meaning in all the things that came before. Because it’s where we find respite, it is also a place of confinement so that we can heal. If Taurus is here for you, you might be a little slow at discovering your true “purpose” in life. There is a secretiveness to your talents and desire that you like to keep hidden from the rest of us. Uranus is plowing through to let you know that you need to get it out into the world! Share what it is you can bring to the table, embrace your wants and needs and allow the rest of us to benefit from what it is you have to offer. This is the end of the old you. You need to say goodbye to “playing it small” and prepare for a new beginning at the end of this 8-year cycle of rediscovery.
