Uranus in Taurus – 2018/19 until July 2025…for first time in 84 years!
Time for a New Earth
When this revolutionary change agent comes calling to each sign every seven years we experience an upgrade in the affairs of the sign, in this case Taurus, with far reaching implications. His rulership over science and technology, plus human rights movements assures us of radical departures from existing conditions across the board.
As he is the key player in our unfolding revolution, his entrance into Taurus for the first time since 1934 in his 84 year cycle is hugely significant. Our Sky God is about to come down to earth to revolutionize our ecological systems with a wave of amazing inventions and groups of people who will clean up our world over the next 7 years. He’s also about to freshen up, to put it mildly, existing financial values and systems.
Uranus is the Roman name derived from the Greek god Ouranus, considered “creator and guardian of cosmic law” who mated with earth mother Gaia, and became known as the original sky father. So Ouranus is the essential, primal force of creation…his process triggers ‘chaos’ that gives birth to the new.
His discovery in 1781 coincided with the ‘awakening’ of the enlightenment period with ‘the rights of the individual’ triggering the French and American revolutions AND the discovery of electricity that ignited the Industrial revolution. Hence, his rulership over science and technology and the revolutionary impulse that arises as old systems have outlived their time.
His electric impulse connects us with our higher mind…or the ‘Mind of God’ so we can download ideas and inspiration to ignite new possibilities to bring progress into the future. Uranian types are gifted with far reaching insight and objectivity as they go about the business of upsetting existing conditions to improve community and society. They are the rebels and eccentrics who experience rejection from the status quo, who consider them strange! Uranus is the modern ruler of Aquarius. Anyone relating?
His keywords of liberation, invention, freedom and change are music to my Aquarian ears! So as Uranus enters any sign he brings his chaos function along for the ride, to awaken us from the complacency of existing conditions so we may enlighten and illuminate the path of humanitarian reform.
The Uranian archetype also carried into the later myth of Prometheus who stole one of Zeus’ thunderbolts and brought fire down to Humanity. The fire is an esoteric symbol of enlightenment thus the ‘fires of consciousness’ could be lit, so here we meet T being connected with illumination and sudden flashes of insight into the higher mind.
Prometheus was punished severely by Zeus by being chained isolated to a rock whilst a great bird flew down daily and tore out his liver, which regenerated overnight for eternal suffering. In this myth we see Prometheus’ Uranian character, serving humanity through inventiveness and daring to bring in new aspects to free up narrowed perception. He was the ‘Divine Rebel’ made to suffer for his daring and creativity. There’s a happy ending here as Chiron offered himself in place of Prometheus, and Zeus was so impressed by this sacrifice that he freed them both!
The Uranian Process – “When the Uranian archetype becomes active through transit, it begins to produce ‘signals’ that portend the future for an individual, nation, or the world. These are initially just little flashes that seem totally out of the existing context (Saturn) of reality, and are rarely understood or heeded. The signals then become more frequent and tightly spaced together, and if not heeded the individual or collective is ‘surprised’ when the situation, event, etc ‘suddenly happens’: the unexpected or out-of-the-blue phenomena associated with Uranus. Unprepared, the individual or collective must rapidly adjust to the new situation or development in order to re-integrate and stabilize, lest the situation induce a personal or collective feeling or fear of being out of control”. (Uranus by Jeff Greene).This is why we must always ‘expect the unexpected’ when Uranus comes to town!
Taurean associations arise from the core principle of VALUES, hence all things to do with nature and our earth along with money and wealth distribution. Taurus is the ‘builder’ of the Zodiac who uses strength and hard work to create security and safety, which is why Taureans are so famous for their stubborn fixed qualities!
Nature and beauty and pleasure are the fruits of Taurus who revels in the earthly delights of art and wine and music and all things sensual…she is Mother Nature expressed through the Nine ‘Muses’ who have inspired artists since ancient times.
So as Uranus comes calling to Taurus over the next seven years he brings his lightning bolt of creative fire to innovate and give birth to great changes in our economic and material world.
Taurus bring up our survival issues and our ability to establish foundations by being aware of and using resources effectively. What is needed relative to resources determines what is VALUED. The more self-reliance that exists the more survival is guaranteed. We’re about to experience lots of ‘survival issues’ over the next seven years as collective population and environmental pressure will force many into new circumstances, and our IT revolution brings the end of old industries and jobs as it also gives birth to lots of new ones.
So how can we use Uranus in Taurus to uplift and liberate our lives?
The freedom and liberation of Uranus allows us to break free from old value systems that restrict or inhibit our true individual expression, so we can begin to use our resources in inventive new ways!
As he’s an ‘unexpected’ trigger guy we must stay very flexible when sudden shifts upset our old systems and constructs. Uranus is a smart i.e. intelligent feature so stay alert for sudden flashes of insight or ideas that spin you into fab new possibilities that may be right out of the box from your old view of your potential. Then use Saturn in Capricorn for a reality check and create a ‘plan’! If we are aware of the need for innovation and change this allows ‘the Universe’ to support our growth, whereas if we resist this our unconscious mind will create it anyway…sometimes in the form of upsetting things whether we like them or not!
A reminder that this is a 7 year process for our whole world, so you’ll notice the seeds of these features from mid-2018, but this doesn’t mean it’s going to happen to you immediately OK? It’s also about your personal horoscope and where Taurus falls…and Venus…and the whole picture really. So if you’re inquisitive to know more about YOU you can book a session with me.
I think this fits the bill for Uranus in Taurus very well. Here is your Mantra my friends! As Uranus asks us to break free of past conditions our core self-worth needs to be in very good condition, so whenever you get a bit wobbly as things start morphing in your life or the outer world close your eyes and say “I am safe and secure as I grow and change”. “I am prosperous!”
This will be a fantastic period if we are adaptable and allow the nature of our work or source of making a living to become exciting and challenging beyond our old expectations! We all need to feel valued so it’s time to make sure you are!
Historically Uranus in Taurus brings radical progress in the affairs of building new phases in empires and business. The 1934-42 period gave rise to the Fascist dictators leading to WWII and the armaments industries flourished as technology gave us radar and 1st generation computers. The Glass–Steagall Act separated commercial and private banking and was rescinded by Clinton in 1999 allowing the use of private savings for investment by banks. Roosevelt’s ‘New Deal’ created massive building projects to re-build the economy after the depression. The FBI was founded as commercial TV began creating a whole new industry. And the Dust Bowl period created major ecological and agricultural damage.
Between 1850-1858 was a very turbulent period with the Crimean War that shifted and shook European politics, the expansion of British colonization in the Far East sparking the Opium War in China and dissolution of the Mughal Empire in India. Gold rushes in California and Australia created massive wealth as petroleum was distilled for the first time, the first transpacific telegraph cable laid, and railroads began to be the primary means of transporting goods. And let’s not forget the publishing of ‘The Origin of Species’ by Charles Darwin, which paved the way for a whole new revisionist world view.
Yep in both cases it’s an impressive list of material world developments that went on to form the backbone of industry thereafter. I won’t do an in-depth for other earlier cycles except for a mention of 1683 – 1690 and the ‘Glorious Revolution’ in England which deposed James II, as Louis XIV Franceand Tsar Peter the Great were at the height of their powers.The 1767- 1775 period, included James Cook claiming Australia for the British and the American colonies tea being taxed by England leading to the revolution.
Uranus has been in Aries since 2011 opening a new 84 year Zodiac cycle, bring an exciting and bizarre period full of extremes as radical new technology ushered in a bio-molecular world of designer babies; underwater greenhouses; robotics; sustainable energy systems; artificial intelligence; metadata; a new space age; the cashless society; and scientific proof that our heart/mind does indeed create reality through the power of our thoughts and beliefs.
Our world is changing so fast it is literally hard to keep up with all the advances, let along the implications of how these contain the ingredients for our next Uranus in Taurus phase. So yes we’re up for a revolution in industry and commerce…and money!
Nature and Agriculture
Our sea creatures are drowning in plastic, our farmers struggle to make a living, our native peoples and their innate wisdom for earth management continue to be disregarded, natural ecosystems and our food sources suffer ongoing damage from pesticides…the bees are dying…the list is endless.
Isn’t it ironic that we must now invent new technologies to clean up the damage created by technology!
The birth of ‘rational thought’ during the 16thC dispelled the superstitions of earlier times…it was like the Zeitgeist shift of the era, but it created a major disconnect with the ‘natural world’ and the sacred traditions that honoured our relationship to earth and her creatures.
Until we re-connect with the feminine nurture/nature facet of our humanity we don’t stand a chance of healing the damage we’ve done along the way. So here’s to Uranus as he brings not only the solutions to clean up our world but also the consciousness that will inspire it. This is such a huge subject so can only cover briefly with both some positive news, and some areas of concern…

Solar energy is now cheaper than traditional fossil fuels. Solar and wind is now either the same price or cheaper than new fossil fuel capacity in more than 30 countries, according to a new report from the World Economic Forum. The foundation has described the change as a “tipping point” that could make fighting climate change into a profitable form of business for energy companies. But investors and energy firms are still failing to put money into such green solutions despite the fact that they are cheaper than more traditional forms of electricity generation. Renewable Energy Beating Fossil Fuels Growth
Environmental Pollution is killing more people every year than all the war and violence in the world While there has never been an international declaration on pollution, the topic is gaining traction. The World Bank in April declared that reducing pollution, in all forms, would now be a global priority. And in December 2017, the United Nations will host its’ first-ever conference on the topic of pollution.
Pesticides and Bees Biologists have found more than 150 different chemical residues in bee pollen, a deadly “pesticide cocktail” according to University of California apiculturist Eric Mussen. The chemical companies Bayer, Syngenta, BASF, Dow, DuPont and Monsanto shrug their shoulders at the systemic complexity, as if the mystery were too complicated. They advocate no change in pesticide policy. After all, selling poisons to the world’s farmers is profitable.
The Paris Agreement of 2015 – Trump has withdrawn the USA from this accord, and after reading this summary I’m wondering why they are not even bringing plans into action until 2019?
Emissions Trading Schemes – appear to offer incentive to business to cut emissions but also contain opportunities for profit as permits can be bought and sold!
Climate Engineering – has been happening for decades and who knows how much this is contributing to increased weather chaos of recent times? We cannot allow the politicians alone to dominate the conversation.The “unintended consequences of geoengineering,” have shown that altering the climate in one part of the world could have disastrous effects elsewhere!
Sorry to say Uranus in Taurus may also bring an increase in seismic and natural disasters, as the Sky God activates our natural Taurean ecosystems. Mother Nature is so stressed my friends so please send healing thoughts to her and do all you can to enhance her! Buy a re-usable take away drink mug, stop using plastic bottles and bags and aluminium foil, and eat less meat as not only is it full of antibiotics but requires ongoing land clearing to grow the animals. Grow your own vegies and chooks or buy them at local markets to support your community growers…there are so many ways we can make a difference and get healthier along the way.
The Global Economy
In a nutshell it is well and truly stuffed! I have been on about this for years as I’ve observed the mounting debt reaching extraordinary levels to the point where our grandchildren will be paying it back!
The global banking system is very fragile right now as the secret derivatives debt that no-one ever mentions, plus the on-going bail outs of sovereign nations and their banks has reached epic proportions.
Some observers think we are in for another big financial meltdown that will make the 2008 GFC look like a picnic. Will this be orchestrated by ‘the deep state powers that be’ to enable the implementation of a global currency? Next is the rumour that a whole new model/system has been cooking behind the scenes to replace our current debt slavery model, and this will arise or be announced sometime soon!
Collectively the global political/economic chess game is morphing us into a whole new level between the old guard western financial petro dollar system and the new BRICS alliances seeking to break the control of the US$ as the global reserve currency.
Meanwhile western governments have been passing new laws to allow banks to use personal savings for bailouts of the ‘banks that are too big to fail’…think Cypress 3 years ago. The really big question is: Is there a force in the world that is strong and powerful enough to check-mate and transcend the global domination agenda of the global banking cabal? 2018 may begin to answer this one way or the other.
After decades of the globalization model underpinning our economic system it is beyond obvious that not all the world’s people…or the earth and her ecosystems for that matter…are sharing the benefits! Rampant exploitation of people and resources for financial gain has been the norm in our modern world, driven by greed and corruption by those who seek wealth without regard for the damage created.
At this pivotal moment in history millions of everyday people are fed up with this model as they either witness or experience first-hand the horrible outcomes. Please ‘let it be’ that at this ‘turning of the wheel’ we are finally able to use this next seven years to actually do something about this.
As we are in such extreme times of division and polarization it’s no surprise that there are currently two very different or ‘polarized’ views as to our economic future… funny about that…two sides of the coin…sorry!One camp is calling for a major financial meltdown while other economic experts say we’re set for an explosion of new business opportunities that will trigger a huge new productive cycle!
So let’s have a look at both sides, and then add the technological equivalent of the creation of coins thousands of years ago…yes cryptocurrencies and the ‘blockchain’ technology that will drive them.
The case FOR a major meltdown: The simple summary here is that global debt is at epic proportions and something’s gotta give!
- Saturn in Capricorn over the next 3 years joining Pluto by 2020 – historically this cycle brings recession/depression1929-32 & 1959-62 & 1989-92

- Jim Rickards – for The Daily Reckoning Australia. The question is: Where is it all heading? Negative interest rates engulfed Europe and Japan last year. This is the next stage of the currency wars. It is extremely dangerous. Trade wars produce the same result as currency wars. Despite the illusion of short-term advantage, in the long run everyone is worse off. The original condition of too much debt and too little growth never goes away. Finally, tensions rise, rival blocs are formed, and a shooting war begins. The fact is, shooting wars often have a not-so-hidden economic grievance or rationale behind them… Take the 20th century… The sequence in the early 20th century began with a currency war that started in Weimar Germany with hyperinflation (1921–23), and then extended to a French devaluation (1925), a UK devaluation (1931), a US devaluation (1933), and another French/UK devaluation (1936). Meanwhile, a global trade war emerged after the Smoot-Hawley tariffs (1930) and comparable tariffs of trading partners of the US. Finally, a shooting war progressed with the Japanese invasion of Manchuria (1931), the Japanese invasion of Beijing and China (1937), the German invasion of Poland (1939), and the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor (1941). Eventually, the world was engulfed in the flames of the Second World War, and the international monetary system came to a complete collapse until the Bretton Woods Conference in 1944 when the US$ was set as the ‘global reserve currency’. Is this pattern repeating today? Sadly, the answer appears to be yes. That is why it is critical you prepare now.
- Reports that China’s debt requires them to de-value the YUAN, leading to the currency war described above that can escalate into shooting wars and/or a fiscal crisis that spreads globally.
The case for a major growth phase:
- Previous Uranus in Taurus cycles have brought financial upturns often based on war!
- Chinese plans for massive infrastructure development will create meaningful growth for many countries… not just China. China hopes to recruit the entire world to what has become known as the “project of the century”, its Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), announced by Chinese President Xi Jinping in September 2013. The project will connect Asia with Western Europe, the Middle East and North Africa through high-speed rail connections, new ports, canals, shipping lanes and economic development zones. The idea is to extend this concept across every continent.
Why is China doing this? There is certainly self-interest in China’s plan: it wants to maintain the economic growth that in one generation has lifted nearly a billion Chinese out of poverty, by sharing the formula for that growth with the world, to uplift the masses of poor in Asia and Africa into prosperous future trading partners. The contrast between this approach and hundreds of years of European colonialism could not be starker. Politicians may cast doubt on China’s intentions but global economies are only functioning since the 2008 GFC because China ploughed $20 trillion into its productive sectors to generate a recovery; now it is unleashing the next step: global-scale economic development to drive prosperity through peaceful cooperation.This all sounds very positive in this light, however whether they manage this project with sustainable industry remains to be seen.
- The Financial Revolution on the way via cryptocurrencies and the ‘blockchain’ technology that will drive it. More on this below…
- Understanding what Beijing is up to behind the scenes – Fascinating explanation of possible devaluation of the YUAN in China that will require the Federal Reserve to devalue the US$ and in turn escalate the tensions between China and USA. He also describes how sovereign nations like Russia and China are now free to create their own “PutinCoin” and “XiCoin” and use these to trade without any need for the US$ as reserve currency (not backed by Gold), as their cryptos can be Gold backed as both countries have been stockpiling gold over recent years!
I will leave it to you to weigh up the very basic evidence I have offered, as yes it is such a huge and complex situation. One thing is for sure…we are moving into a radical departure from existing global financial systems, especially with the re-structuring process on the way from Saturn in Capricorn. Personally, I recommend investing in some Gold & Silver bullion, doing some research and buying some cryptos or shares in blockchain tech companies , and keeping some cash around the house…just in case the cash machines can’t or won’t give you any!
The most famous of these is Bitcoin, which arrived on the scene in January 2009. What makes these on-line currencies different are there is no centralized authority or bank controlling the currency or the network. No one there to manipulate supply through interest rates, or to create more bitcoins out of thin air. Bitcoin achieves this truly decentralized system through blockchain technology.The blockchain is essentially a shared public ledger — a database that every member of the network can see and contribute to. Blockchain technology will become the ‘next normal’ in financial transfers in every aspect of business in the very near future.
Cryptos are a disruptive force of new wealth creation…not of wealth redistribution. Of course, the potential on offer in the crypto world is far greater than just bitcoin as there are now hundreds of coins.Although bitcoin is the biggest player, the entire crypto network has rocketed 1,500% in 2017 alone, bringing the value of the whole crypto market to US$160 billion…or 2% of the global currency market. So not only have cryptosgone from almost nothing to more than three times the value of the entire Ford Motor Company virtually overnight, but with only a 2% slice of the global currency market, there is a lot of room left to grow.
There are already hundreds of cryptos and I have discovered it is a bit of a minefield to research how it all works. It is wise to buy an off-line ‘wallet’ to store your coins and this one comes out as best quality/value -Ledger Nano S – and then sign up to purchase coins through a Broker like “Coinspot”.
The whole crypto market is hugely speculative right now as there are massive profits to be made and recently big investors are moving money into this market. However, its early days and some analysts say the real value of the coins is yet to be tested, as they are not backed by gold or anything else, so if there is a fiscal crisis they would quickly lose value as people rush to redeem cash…
How Will Bitcoin React in a Financial Crisis Like 2008?Regulating Cryptocurrencies — And Why It Matters
It is not about bitcoins — it is about a monetary revolution! Once again one thing is for sure, Blockchain and cryptos are here to stay so start doing your research to empower your financial world over the years ahead, as Uranus in Taurus inspires us all into clever inventive new ways to invest in and use our resources in startling new ways!
