In our post for the Sun moving into Sagittarius on November 23, 2018, we touched on some of the transits which will be affecting those with their Sun in Sagittarius this upcoming year. Here is another aspect to add to that forecast.

Transiting Uranus did move temporarily into the sign of Taurus from May to early November of 2018 and it will again move into Taurus, this time staying there as of March 7, 2019. It will move up to about 6 ½ degrees in Taurus before it goes retrograde (appears to move backwards) once again on August 12, 2019.

Transiting Uranus can be felt as early as 5 degrees approaching and becomes very strong when it is direct (same degree). Quite often an event will take place on the day it is exactly direct or within a week or two. As a result, transiting Uranus is used as a timer in Astrology.

With Uranus in the sign of Taurus, which is a fixed, earth sign, it is in its “fall”. When a Planet is in its fall, it does not adapt to the energies of the sign very well and is unable to release itself in a comfortable manner. It is not at home in this sign and Uranus’ energies are harnessed. Uranus’ energies are all about breaking free of any restrictions and reaching out for something new which in turns can create a new found freedom ….. sometimes an awakening of sorts.

Taurus’ energies, on the other hand, are all about stability and structure and it does not like change. Taurus seeks comfort in what it knows and will stay in situations even when outside influences suggests that it should go beyond these limitations. As you can well imagine, this placement of Uranus in Taurus does not blend well.

Those individuals with a Sun sign which is in the early degrees of Sagittarius have been or will be experiencing a quincunx (also known as an inconjunct) with Uranus. A Quincunx is considered a minor aspect although when direct (in the case of Uranus to the Sun within 1 degree) the energies of this aspect can be felt as a major aspect similar in some ways to the square. It is as though there is something nagging at you to make a change of direction or an adjustment to what is taking place in your life. This could relate to a change of direction as mentioned or it could mean a change of attitude towards a situation, but something needs to be adjusted. If you have this in your chart, you would be quite aware what that might involve.

Here is the issue…….the Sun often speaks in terms of worldly goals or inner goals and Uranus is asking that you review the current or upcoming situation and make some changes, but being in Taurus part of you feels as though you should ride the storm, or wait things out. As a result, you may make no change what-so-ever. In many cases, a change or adjustment is what is required and usually if it is an adjustment it is not minor.

If you have a look at the placement by house position of your Sun and where Uranus will be transiting when it makes this quincunx as this will give you a good idea of what needs to change. Have a look at where natal Uranus is as well and also if there is a natal aspect between the Sun and Uranus in your birth chart. This will broaden your understanding of what needs to transpire and you will have a good idea what this is about. However, you probably already know or at least have an good idea.

Uranus often acts in an unpredictable manner and it might be wise when you get the hint or push that things need examining and eventual changed that you make those adjustments, but Uranus being in Taurus might make that a little tough. There may be some fear and a worrisome fear that things are not as steadfast or stable as you might want them to be. You may be concerned that if you make that move the outcome is unpredictable.

It can be frightening, but under most conditions, Uranus is about required change and new directions that over time will put you on the path that you are meant to take.

It may take as long as a year or two to really understand what all this is about and why things went the way they did, but you will understand as time passes. Remind yourself that all changes brought on by the energies of Uranus are necessary changes. You will benefit from the outcome.

Of course we always have options and the final choice will always be yours and yours alone to make. Astrology is to be used as a guide, but Uranus is also known as the awakener and rules Astrology.
