On January 27, 2024 we're stepping into a unique astrological phase – Uranus is direct, and for the first time in a while, all planets are moving forward. This brings an air of action, readiness, and, let's be honest, a bit of unpredictability- and for me, it's incredibly personal.
As an Aquarius Moon with a chart heavy in Aquarian energies, I've always vibed with Uranus's innovative and rebellious spirit. But here's the twist – my Sun sign is Taurus, the steady earth sign known for its love of stability. Imagine combining Taurus's grounded nature with Aquarius's shock factor – quite the paradox, right? And now, as Uranus aligns with my Taurus Sun for the third time, I brace myself for another round of cosmic shake-ups.
Shake-ups and transformations have been a constant in my life, especially during Uranus transits. But I've learned to ride these waves with inner work and a focus on the present moment. After all, the future is an unwritten story, and all we truly have is now.
So, what does Uranus going direct in Taurus mean for us?
Uranus in Taurus: A Historical Perspective
The last time Uranus was in Taurus (from 1934 to 1942), the world saw immense change. The Great Depression, the Dust Bowl, and the onset of World War II – these were times of intense upheaval, economic shifts, and global restructuring. Taurus, symbolizing security and material possessions, was revolutionized by Uranus’s sudden and unpredictable energy.
What Was Going On?
Economic Revolution: The Great Depression wasn't just an economic downturn; it was a radical shift in how people viewed money, resources, and stability – core Taurian themes. Uranus in Taurus back then was challenging the very foundations of financial security.
Environmental Catastrophe: The Dust Bowl was another Uranus-in-Taurus hallmark. It was as if the earth itself was rebelling, with dust storms reshaping the American landscape and forcing a mass rethinking of agricultural practices.
Global Upheaval: The onset of World War II was Uranus in Taurus writ large – a seismic shift in global power structures, tearing down the old to rebuild anew.
Connecting Past to Present
Fast forward to today, and it feels like we're in a similar epoch of change. While the challenges of our time – climate crisis, economic shifts, technological revolutions – are different in specifics, they echo the themes of upheaval and transformation that marked Uranus's last transit through Taurus.
Why This Matters Studying these historical patterns helps us understand our current situation. Uranus in Taurus is a time of upheaval, yes, but also of incredible potential for growth and innovation. It pushes us to redefine what stability and security mean in a rapidly changing world.
Today, as Uranus goes direct in Taurus again, I find myself embodying this paradox. It’s a dance between the desire for stability (Taurus) and the urge for rapid innovation (Uranus). It’s not always comfortable – Uranus's energy is anything but predictable – but it’s incredibly transformative.
