The rebel planet moves from chaotic Aries into stubborn Taurus for some changes we might not be ready for.
Uranus is the planet of shocks and surprises, and while in retrograde it was inhibiting our urges to express dramatic thoughts and ideas — not to mention Mother Nature’s urges to erupt. Now this period of relative quiet is coming to an end, and we may experience those urges to erupt as dramatic global events and personal breakthroughs — some brilliant and some disturbing — especially due to Uranus’ transit through Aries and into Taurus.
Revolutionary Uranus forced an uncomfortable calm when it went retrograde back in August of 2018, keeping us from making the important changes we felt brewing beneath the surface.
But when Uranus turns direct just after the New Year, on January 6, 2019, all of those urges we had been suppressing for those five months erupted on a personal and global scale.
Uranus is the planet of shocks and surprises, but it was inhibited while in retrograde. It’s been a period of relative quiet, but when it’s direct we may experience both brilliant and disturbing ideas and events.
Uranus in Aries represents sudden and unexpected events, including wild weather and political uprisings — all of which we’ve seen during its time in this sign.
So if you think the past five months have been chaotic, you ain’t seen nuthin’ yet. Get ready and brace yourself for more of the unexpected now that Uranus is moving into the sign of Taurus.
This is all part of the transformational times we’re living in, and as frightening as it may be, such change is needed to redirect humanity toward a better future. Here we go!
