Uranus in Taurus + Horoscopes

Uranus, our planet of change and surprise, is starting a new 7 year tour in Taurus on March 6th.  He’s been hanging out in Aries since 2012, which has been a happy home for him.  Aries likes change, so for the pioneer of the zodiac to host the innovative planet of Uranus has been a pretty good fit for the two of them.  But come March 6th, Uranus meets up with Taurus, our sign of fixed resources, stability, and safety.  Can you see how this is like an athlete running into a pit of qucksand?  Taurus, the bull, likes to start things slow.  She holds her cards close to her chest and carefully deliberates if she has the time and the resources to dedicate to the suggested proposal.  But once she makes a decision she is ALL IN and it can be hard to change her course.  Uranus is not going to like Taurus’s new speed limits, but will enjoy how easy things come together once the resources are there.  

Uranus is an outer planet; one that manifests things on a societal level.  And astrologers have been excited about this shift for years.  The last time Uranus was in Taurus was 76 years ago when things like the Great Depression and WWII was occurring.  So this time around, they have been wondering what could come of this and some ideas have been to watch things like banking or cryptocurrency or even innovations in how we get our food.  Taurus is ruled by Venus who is in charge of resources.  I giggled when I realized that Freakonomics, a podcast I listen to, released an episode titled, “The Future of Meat,” on February 13th.  Good hell, is their editor an astrologer?  The timing cracked me up.  Personally I’m waiting to see how tax structures are going to continue to change in the USA, the stock market will evolve, and even the heads in high couture fashion are about to pass the torches of power to redefine what we find beautiful as a society.  

We did have a little bit of a preview of what Uranus in Taurus felt like in May 2018 before it slipped back into Aries.  Do you remember what happened?  The earth literally quaked.  Hawaii’s Kilauea volcano erupted and swallowed up whole communities.  Talk about immediate change to people’s key place of feeling safe:  their homes.  In fact the first major summit explosion of the volcano erupted the exact day Uranus entered Taurus on May 15th.  Come March 6th, 2018 Uranus will be in Taurus until 2026.  It will be interesting to see what types of earth shaking events happen this time around.

One way to focus on how Uranus might manifest is to see where Taurus is in your chart.  Please read these Uranus in Taurus Horoscopes for your Sun and your Rising Sign if you know them.

Aries Sun/Aries Rising:  The focus is shifting to how you want to redefine your concept of self-worth over the next 7 years.  Does your self worth shift up and down mirroring your bank account balance? Or is it independent and radiate from within?  You have a chance to radicalize your savings, your earnings, and how you value yourself.

Taurus Sun/Taurus Rising:  It is time to take those last 7 years of self-care and put them into action.  All of those daydreams of what “could be” are now on the edge of manifesting themselves into reality.  Will it take work?  Yes, but as a Taurus once you set your mind there is no stopping you.  Let that bull energy work for you.

Gemini Sun/Gemini Rising:  After watching the political scene and all of the talking from both sides, you need a break.  It’s been hard watching friends pivot and dodge the rhetoric while preserving friendships.  And as a Gemini, you can see each side of the coin.  Sometimes being the mediator can be too much.  Now is the time to retreat and concentrate on your own inner compass.  

Cancer Sun/Cancer Rising:  The planet of change has been wrapping up his tour of your career sector over the past 7 years and that area will become more stable.  Get ready for some of your societal ideals to be challenged. It’s time to reform the area of your life where you socialize with like-minded people, whether thats large groups or even your closest inner circle.  

Leo Sun/Leo Rising:  For the past 7 years you’ve been expanding your mind to figure out where you fit in the world, and now it is time to take the spotlight.  Don’t feel alarmed if you feel like where you shine feels like a natural place to bask one minute and you own it then the next minute you feel the need to clam up and retreat.  This is all part of the process.  Careers and reputations weren’t built overnight no matter what anyone says.

Virgo Sun/Virgo Rising:  It is your time to figure out who you really are, my virgo friend.  And the first place this starts is by expanding the mind.  You’ve got to figure out where you fit in whether that is by sitting in a classroom debating ideas or traveling the world.  The goal is the same; find out where you belong in humanity and set up roots that give you security.  It might be a good time to investigate going back to school or renewing your passport. 

Libra Sun/Libra Rising:  You have figured out who, but now you get to say what the boundaries are.  They say that the ultimate way to find out who you are is by merging with another person.  You are on the course to figuring out if other’s limitations fit within your own boundaries.  This could be financially, emotionally, or spiritually.  Uranus is entering your 8th house of individual power and resources of others.  Your goal is to figure out what feels protected and genuine for your own individuality.

Scorpio Sun/Scorpio Rising:  There could be some sudden comings and goings in your realm of partnerships.  Uranus is putting the spotlight into your 7th house to help you renegotiate who fits into sacred relationship with you.  The ultimate gift we share is ourselves and this is always done in relationships.  Use this time to find the person who is worthy enough to stand as your equal.  This could be any marriage or legal commitment.  It’s time to find out who is your balance.

Sagittarius Sun/Sagittarius Rising:  Daily habits create destiny.  It’s time for you to decide if your habits are giving you a true sense of security or the illusion of a safeguard.  Be aware of your daily choices as the 6th house rules your health and even your day to day routine and work environment.  This is where the change will be foundational.

Capricorn Sun/Capricorn Rising:  It’s easy to become complacent and not take risks.  It feels safe, but realize it are the risks that make us step out of ourselves and become more authentic.  It is when we are in that lightening moment of the “now” that creativity and our higher self manifests.  Being the same version of ourselves is irresponsible to our souls.  

Aquarius Sun/Aquarius Rising:  When you are plunged under an ocean wave and get turned around, the first thing you should do is stop swimming.  It sounds counter-intuitive, but true.  Instead, you should blow out your bubbles and watch where they are float “up.”  You will know where the surface is and can then start swimming to safety.  This is exactly where Uranus is hitting your chart:  the bottom of your chart where you do not have any control.  It is where we emerged from, the roots of our home life.  When change hits, especially in your home life, don’t panic.  Let yourself pause, find the path of the bubbles and let them guide you where to swim.

Pisces Sun/Pisces Rising:  The planet of transformation is getting ready to tour your house of social learning.  Think of where we first established our first social network:  our siblings and cousins became our first friends, we did our first negotiations on the playground, and we learned what life outside of our house was like in our community schools and churches.  These are the domains of where your focus will lie.  In the next 7 years, expect some reconnections and lost communications with those who sustain that part of your first community.  It’s also a good time to try learning a new skill, especially musically or writing, as the lessons you learn will become a life long gift.

Monthly Moon Transits of the Horoscope

The moon is the fastest moving planet in our horoscope changing sign every 2 – 2.5 days.  It is the first thing astrologers look to when we hear people are in a funk, or are feeling on top of the world.  It can give us clues to weight loss and fitness or our self confidence. Even the phases of the moon gives us clues as to creative cycle of life and personality depending upon which phase of the moon you were born in. All in all, the moon is pretty damn important.  Even in those small windows every month as the moon changes sign, it can give us clues as to how our emotions are doing and how to keep our balance.

When the Moon is in Aries watch your own impatience.  You might crave excitement or the novel.  It’s also very easy to take things personally as those feelings will be running hot like the fire sign Aries is.  Go ahead and try that new fitness class.  The endorphins will have your mood soaring.  Even just taking a new route home from work will stimulate your brain into new ways of being present.

When the Moon is in Taurus, you will be more likely to go to your favorite restaurant and order the “usual” vs. trying the hip new spot on the corner.  It’s also a good time to relook at your goals with fresh determination and drive.  The Moon is exalted here.  Taurus is a fixed sign, meaning it doesn’t like change.  Home and family really doesn’t change either which is what the moon rules.  It is all about security and routine and looking at what is working for you.

When the Moon is in Gemini, we have empathy for those born under this natal energy as we feel more scattered than normal and we have a low attention span.  However, on the positive, we discover more things are piquing our curiosity and leading us down new paths.  Its a good time to find that one friend and process things over a cuppa tea while the hours tick by.  Pour your heart out and you’ll find that in a round about way, that original problem was solved.

When the Moon is transiting Cancer, it’s a good time to call mom, stay home for the night, make soup, and cuddle.  Cancer’s sign is represented by the crab, who keeps her guard up, but lives in the watery deep beneath that hard shell.  The emotions can often overtake us like waves overtake the shore.  Break out the tissues, my friend.  No one can keep up the hard exterior for that long.  The Moon loves being here.  She’s home.

When the Moon is in Leo, it is time to let your heart light shine.  Let your passion drive you forth with happiness and confidence.  Let your enthusiasm be contagious and encourage others to find their light too.  They are the creatives.  Go patronize the arts, the music scene, even the culinary arts.  It also rules the house of true love so connect romantically with the one who makes your heart quicken.  Leos also are the sign of that rules children, so any extra time with little people will be well invested. On the cautionary side, Leos can be pretty selfish so be aware about the Me, Myself, and I focus.

When the Moon in Virgo its a good time to be more conscious about healthy eating, getting check ups, or even getting Fido in for his yearly once over with the vet.  You might feel the need to start organizing a bit around the office.  Break out the checklists!!!  Just even putting pen to paper can calm that anxiety and make things feel more manageable.  Just be careful of offering that dreaded (but well intended) unsolicited advice to others that Virgos are so infamous for.

When the Moon is in Libra, it is time to turn up that charm.  Cater to your partner and feel the intimacy grow.  Libra is also the sign of the scales, so now it time to help negotiate a balance for all parties to understand how to get along when feelings are delicate.  Diplomacy is an art and Libras, are the Renaissance Masters.  

When the Moon is in Scorpio it is a time to dig deep.  You might feel a bit more secretive and driven to understand the “why” or the “how” of your emotions or the drive of others.  Schedule that therapy appointment or crack open the dusty journal.  Questions are good.  Solitude is good.  Trust your gut.  The Moon struggles here a bit.  Doing so much active questioning and trying to give form of watery emotions is hard work.

When the moon is in Sagittarius, it is time to take the wisdom of Scorpio, aim that bow and arrow of the archer to the target, and do some truth telling that Sag’s are so famous for.  The funny thing is, Sagittarius natives are so optimistic they will almost make you feel optimistic even when hearing the brutal truth. Instead of the smaller viewpoint of Scorpio which is mostly individual, open up your awareness to the bigger picture of Sagittarius’s world.  Go explore.  Learn a new skill.  Get curious about a new culture.  Book that trip across the world.  Enroll yourself in higher learning.  Just watch out about becoming too preachy or thinking that your truth is the only truth out there.

When the Moon in in Capricorn, you might be feeling a bit isolated and lonely.  Again, the moon is not really functioning here so those messy emotions are not getting in the way what so ever!  You also might be feeling like you are getting a ton of stuff done, or at least planning to. Caps are notorious for their long-term goals.  On the downside, you can’t figure out what in the hell your gut is telling you.  It’s like all transmission and radio signals have gone dark on that front.  Now is the time to polish up that resume and ask for a new leadership role at work or figure out if this is where you want to be in 5 years time. Work might feel like it’s taking over your life when the moon is in this sign.

When the Moon enters Aquarius it is time to change the status quo.  End habits that are holding you back from your authentic and idealized self.  Do small things first like brush your teeth with your non-dominant hand or take a different bus to work.  Give your own quirks grace because they make you an individual.  Look into joining new groups, whether its the local business bureau or sitting at a new lunch table.  Barriers will be broken down and new friendships can be made. On a warning, Aquarius is a fixed air sign. When the moon is here you can get stuck arguing for the sake of arguing or getting so invested in your point, you’ve lost sight of the true goal.

When the Moon makes its journey through Pisces it is a good time to remind yourself that change is the only constant.  Build your intuition; look for the coincidences as signs.  Tune in to what others might be feeling.  Build your emotional intelligence.  Respond as you would like to be responded to.  You will feel others open up to you on completely different wavelengths.

Jupiter in Sagittarius

Let’s talk Jupiter in Sagittarius.  While many of you might be scratching your heads wondering what this means, sit back and grab a comfy spot while I talk about what this planet can do for you over the next 12 months or so until it leaves on December 2, 2019.  

Jupiter is like your favorite Uncle Larry coming home for the holidays after a long trip around the world.  He makes sure he gives every kid piggyback rides, brings Dad his favorite Scotch, eats extra helpings of grandma’s famous casserole, and makes sure to regale you with vivid stories about his travels with all these hidden nuggets of wisdom in his tales.  He might slip an extra gift under the tree while no one was looking or drop a $50 in cousin Abby’s coat pocket cause he knows she’s been having a hard time making ends meet in her 3 jobs.  He makes everyone feel like they are in his spotlight and he is always on the move.  Everyone loves Uncle Larry.  This is Jupiter.  

Jupiter has two home signs: Sagittarius and Pisces.  Sagittarius is the more masculine sign of the two.  He is the truth seeker.  He craves wisdom, expansion of the mind, and journeys.  Jupiter in Sagittarius asks us to dare to dream.  Instead of listing all the reasons why you can’t have this, that or the other; Jupiter in Sagittarius says, “Why Not?” And “How Big?”  Its a very different way to live.  I have a paperweight I got when I first went into leadership that was inscribed, “What would you do if you knew you could not fail?”  This is a very Jupiter in Sagittarius quote and it helped me steer the ship into new waters that were unchartered and more optimistic.

So how do we take this unbridled optimism and luck into each sign?  Well, it depends on where Jupiter falls in each of your charts.  If you can, read this for your rising sign, but if you do not know that, read it for your sun sign if you are a day birth or your moon sign if you were born at night.

Aries Rising:  Jupiter is in your 9th house and you’ve been itching to broaden your horizons.  Sometimes you can feel limited by the 4 walls of your house or even your mind.  Jupiter is favoring you to look for new ways to grow whether its by an airplane or opening a new book and seeing what horizons await on the pages.

Taurus Rising:  If you’ve been procrastinating about settling past taxes, your parents estate, or getting your own affairs in order, the time is now.  Jupiter is ready to clear the path for you.  What might have seemed like a dark forest path will light up with twinkle lights and synchronicities to make progress happen quickly.  Get it done, my friend.

Gemini Rising:  Lucky you having the planet of blessings in your house of marriage and partnerships.  Beaus and suitors are coming out of your ears!  Keep on the look out for those from a different background, country, or outlook on life.  Keep your mind open.

Cancer Rising:  I’ve always said that life feels so much better if you have one place of refuge.  Believe it or not, your place of work and daily grind has all the glitter and gold for the next year.  If you’ve been having health problems, a breakthrough could come.  Watch your weight though, one of the side effects of having Jupiter here could be a bit of weight gain.

Leo Rising:  Jupiter in your 5th House. Who am I to tell a Leo how to play?  It is a time to celebrate you.  Make sure you use your vacation days this year.  Live your life like a child and be in the present.  Reconnect to what makes you joyful.  This could be one of your happiest years yet.

Virgo Rising:  Jupiter in your 4th House.  Have you been thinking of buying a bigger house or adding on?  This might be the time.  Create the space that nurtures you and spend it with the people you call family.  Remember, sometimes family is not just those you are related to by blood.  

Libra Rising:  Jupiter in your 3rd House.  Cat got your tongue?  Speak up, my dear libra!  Do not be afraid of hurting others feelings.  Let your truth be known and see how affirming it can be.  This is the time to take the risk.  Jupiter has your back.

Scorpio Rising:  Jupiter in your 2nd House.  Ok, lets talk about that raise you need to ask for.  Don’t think you are worth it?  Jupiter and I say, “hogwash.”  Now is the time, my friend.  Put on your suit of armor because you are worth it and the planet of blessings has your back.

Sagittarius Rising:  Jupiter in your 1st House.  Ready for a new look?  Book your salon, book your trainer, get a stylist, and start making those resolutions.  Let’s reinvent how you want others to see you.

Capricorn Rising:  Jupiter in your 12th House. It is time to take a time-out and that is 100% a-ok.  How can you ask for what you want if you don’t know what your heart truly desires?  Jupiter is supporting you and making sure all of that goodness is not passing you by as you seek clarity.  He is just organizing the queue so that when its time to open the doors for business you can be ready to take in EXACTLY what you want.

Aquarius Rising: Jupiter in your 11th House.  Get the social calendar ready, honey, because its going to be a live one.  Get ready for invitations to be on boards, community event planning groups, sorority functions, and neighborhood parties.  This is your time to mix the drinks and mingle with the guests.

Pisces Rising:  Jupiter in your 10th House.  Are you ready?  This is a time to step into your own.  Take on the big role at work or change jobs completely.   It is about being seen, which is a little uncomfortable for you as a whole.  But I promise, Jupiter has your back, and the time is NOW.
