The world got a sneak peak of Uranus in Taurus from May 15th, 2018 to November 6th, 2018. Uranus is the planet of upset, change, electricity, innovation, and revolution. Taurus rules money, personal security, and natural resources. Our first look of Uranus in Taurus brought the shocking news of the US-China trade war and a banner year for marijuana legalization in Canada. There was also the shocking decline in the value of Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies.
Uranus spends approximately 7 years in each sign, which rules over the general mood and outlook of societies during that period. Previously, Uranus had been in Aries, which sparked a great deal of social movements and aggression towards inequality and the disenfranchised individual. As Uranus moves from personal identity to personal resources several themes are likely to develop. First, political correctness and excessive feelings of being offended are due to fade into the background. Of course, the progress made for human decency will stay, there will be less radical outcry seen in the world. Instead, outcry will begin to focus on natural resources, pay inequality, and food supplies.
It will then spend the majority of its time in Taurus from March 6th, 2019 to July 7th, 2025. However, before looking at where we are going, it is important to understand a bit about what the world experienced the last time Uranus was in Taurus. From 1934-1942 financial security was shaken with the Great Depression, Dust Bowl, and World War II. Of course, the entire astrological landscape this time around will now mirror that of the past. So it is safe to say that war, famine, and depression are not necessarily promised. However, we can be certain similar themes will repeat. Uranus will shake up financial markets across the globe, and will force the world to question the role of money. The next 7 years will mark a period where major gains and massive losses will be able to be made in markets.
As Uranus rules technology and Taurus rules money there is a very good chance that the way the world thinks and utilizes money will change. Already many establishments are less frequently accepting cash, and that is likely to continue. We may even see the end of paper currency by the end of Uranus’ transit in Taurus. The first pass of Uranus here brought a dip in the value of cryptocurrencies, and that volatility is likely to continue. Nothing is stable when Uranus is in play. Even with the chaos of Uranus, digital currencies are likely to become more popular, public, and useable in our everyday lives. While this astrologer is not suggesting the world should dump their entire life savings into digital currency. It might not be a bad idea to pay close attention to it right now and make a modest investment.
The fact of life on earth is that we have limited natural resources, and with Uranus moving into Taurus this will become more evident. Over the next 7 years amazing advancements in wind, solar, and renewable energy will take center stage. Much of this is likely to occur because of global movements by the public to cease the use of fossil fuels. Innovative ways to look at protecting our environment will come during this time, and it will finally be clear how to integrate them into the global economy. Of course, financial upsets occur here as well, and it is much more likely to manifest as discomfort during growth as opposed to a depression of the 1930’s.
The world should also be aware that natural disasters related to our resources are more likely to occur during this period. Oil spills, and earthquakes that destroy resources may come in order to force us to find alternative sources.
Security of all kinds from personal and financial to governmental and border will continue to make headlines. In Uranus, new technology will allow us to change the way we handle and even understand what makes us feel safe. We can expect changes in the way we identify ourselves with identification cards, to smart borders, airports, and even building entrances.“Big Brother” technologies are also likely to become more prevalent, which will inspire more “off the grid” living and people look for ways to feel safe in their own homes. No matter how it manifests, we can be certain that people around the world will need to change the way they look at what makes them feel safe and secure. “Big Brother technologies
Food is considered a resource, and over the last decade the vegetarian, vegan , free range meats, and non-GMO movements have gained a great deal of ground. Uranus in Taurus will likely bring more attention to an awareness of the safety of the foods we eat. The world can expect new studies and technologies related to food and nutrition. Previous movements can now solidify change globally towards less toxic eating. Home gardens, and innovative farming will rise, allowing people to grow their own foods no matter where they live.
