It’s been a very long time coming, but are we about to finally see a push for greater global equality? Perhaps. When Uranus transits Taurus, we can be sure of one thing: the establishment is in for a shock. Taurus is a zodiac sign traditionally connected with finance, banking, and building and astrological Uranus energy is the stuff of revolution, upheaval, democracy, radical change and popular protest.
Uranus entered Taurus in May 2018, and we’ve already seen the beginnings of mass protest on numerous issues around the world. Taurus is an Earth sign, and concern over the future of our planet is mobilizing minds like never before. By the time Uranus leaves Taurus, in late April 2026, we may have witnessed the one percent shaken out of their complacency and greed, as ordinary individuals feel empowered to make their voices heard.
Driven by the decent values that most of humanity shares (Taurus is big on values, remember) change may start to feel unstoppable. Expect social media to play a large part in organizing this avalanche of feeling; Uranian energy is nothing if not tech-savvy. There’s an environmental feel here too, of course, and a growing recognition that the world needs holistic, innovative, creative solutions, not just more of the same- old-same-old. As more and more of us harness Uranus to speak up and speak out, refusing to know our place or to look the other way, the powers that be will have to take notice. To channel this potentially explosive energy positively, though, will take some very skilful world leadership.
On a personal level, the Uranus in Taurus transit brings value shifts for many of us. What we thought was right, or what we thought we believed, may change in the light of new information – and remember, that’s a good thing. However, Taurus energy governs stability and does not like change. The status quo is tough to shift, so there will be some lengthy personal battles ahead as we struggle to come to terms with a new worldview.
Uranus energy can be scary when it strikes from nowhere, and all zodiac signs will experience periods of feeling out of control and lost at sea. The important thing is to keep calm and to trust the process. Astrology shows us that what may seem shocking or impossible at the start of this transit will be welcomed and accepted by the end of it. Eccentricity is to be embraced. Change is on the way, and wise zodiac signs will work with it, not against it.
Uranus in Taurus for an Aries (Aries dates: March 20 – April 19)
Rethink your relationship with money. Yes, it’s buying you stability and security, but at what cost? Could you be healthier and potentially happier with less? Is your current financial success costing you too much family time? Is your conformity within the system stifling your creativity and inhibiting who you really are? During this Uranus transit, Aries, you’re being given the chance to change direction.
Uranus in Taurus for a Taurus (Taurus dates: April 20 – May 20)
You’re changing who you are, Taurus, on a very fundamental level as Uranus transits your sign. And not everyone likes the changes – some people around you would rather hold on to the old, predictable, safe you. Your challenge is to step into your own identity while reassuring your loved ones that you’re core soul remains the same. Take those who matter to you on the journey with you. Don’t leave them behind.
Uranus in Taurus for a Gemini (Gemini dates: May 21 – June 20)
This energy is all about surrender, Gemini, and in particular, surrendering your identity. Not in a bad way – in a way that puts you in touch with the collective consciousness of humanity. You’ll learn during this transit that you are part of the great divine spark. Your individuality is precious, but your true soul nature is even more important. Don’t allow pride to stand in the way of spiritual progress.
Uranus in Taurus for a Cancer (Cancer dates: June 21 – July 21)
During this transit, your carefully nurtured tribe of friends and acquaintances doesn’t quite feel right any more. You’re moving on, Cancer, but they may not be. Use these energies to put yourself in touch with a new group of people who share your new objectives and who have experienced a similar awakening. Outdated goals need to go, and so do outdated people.
Uranus in Taurus for a Leo (Leo dates: July 22 – August 22)
Your public image – whether through the lens of your career or otherwise – is about to get a radical makeover. In particular, you’ll want to break free from the limits of convention and expectation. Stop playing the game, Leo, and start being true to yourself. The new you may come as a shock to some, but that’s just a sign of how well you’ve hidden your own identity in recent years.
Uranus in Taurus for a Virgo (Virgo dates: August 23 – September 22)
You can expect your core beliefs about the world to undergo some radical shift during this transit, Virgo. A physical journey may open your eyes, but a metaphorical journey is just as likely, perhaps prompted by discovering more about an issue close to your heart. From religion, to your views on justice and controversial social issues, it’s all about change as your ideas expand and renew.
Uranus in Taurus for a Libra (Libra dates: September 23 – October 22)
Don’t be afraid to embrace your shadow self, Libra. There’s an attraction to the darker elements of life during this transit, and you’ll feel driven to uncover what’s hidden. Don’t forget what’s hidden within you. By working on your own psychology and self-growth, you can make radical changes which free you from the need to pretend. Sex, passion and money are all due for a shakeup, but the biggest shakeup is internal.
Uranus in Taurus for a Scorpio (Scorpio dates: October 23 – November 21)
With Uranus transiting your love zone, your relationships may be in for a bumpy ride, Scorpio. Your challenge is to eliminate superficiality. Don’t pay lip-service to love and stop saying things just because you’re “supposed to” say them. Be raw, be honest and be clear with your sweetheart about what you need and what you want. Only through searingly honest engagement can your relationship grow.
Uranus in Taurus for a Sagittarius (Sagittarius dates: November 22 – December 20)
You’ll want to rid yourself of routines and restrictions during this transit, Sagittarius – but you’d do well to remember that some rules and some routines are there for your own good. Don’t be in such a hurry to create change that you throw away what is valuable. It’s a fine line to walk, between innovative change and comforting security, but if anyone can do it you, with your mutable instincts, can.
Uranus in Taurus for a Capricorn (Capricorn dates: December 21 – January 19)
The urge to shock is irresistible during this transit, even though, as a Capricorn, you tend to avoid shock at all costs! You’ll want to walk on the wild side now, though, throwing away convention and expectation and freeing your inner rebel. Seek out things which make you happy and do more of them even if – especially if – they’re very different to the kinds of things you’ve been doing so far.
Uranus in Taurus for an Aquarius (Aquarius date: January 20 – February 17)
There’s a sense here of separation from the home and family, but not physical separation, Aquarius – more separation in the sense of independence and freedom. Make time of yourself away from family responsibilities and encourage other family members to do likewise. Spontaneity is important, so forget the housework, spend quality time with your loved ones without watching the clock.
Uranus in Taurus for a Pisces (Pisces dates: February 18 – March 19)
Your creativity is off the scale during this transit, Pisces, especially when it comes to your gift with words. You can write or speak now in a way which changes things. Big things. Become aware of the power of your own communication skills and use them wisely to champion the things which truly matter in your life. It’s an inspirational time to be a teacher, provided you’re willing to break the rules.
