All you need to know about Uranus...
Uranus and paving the way for change... unavoidably! Uranus rules the sign of Aquarius and is all about friendship, brotherhood and universal love, but he can also lead us, if we do not consciously contain his power, on the road to intolerance, discrimination and heresy! Whilst he frees us from a lifestyle that is no longer relevant and stops us from being stuck in a rut, there is also a danger that he could lead some to go too far. Boastful about having a head-start on the rest of the world, he often imposes his progressive views, but takes little account of the difficulties of the rest of humanity in following in his enlightened steps. He sometimes steers very close to the edge of a precipice, which can at times be extremely dangerous. With Uranus, we should expect to come up against the extreme and flirt with the transcendent. The idea is to put aside our preconceived ideas with care and give free and open rein to ... our wildest ideas!
Uranus in our charts...
This is the planet of evolution and of great revolutions, which happen sooner or later over the course of our lives, and he never strikes by chance. If you feel that in one area or other of your life, you are showing a clear tendency to cling on to dead wood, you can bet that Uranus is behind everything, with his formidable energy for cutting to the quick and separating you forever from what is somehow slowing down your progress ... inwardly. Under his guidance, do not expect any indulgence and expect to be shaken to the core ... and on the surface. This is a planet with no qualms, inviting us to evolve without false hopes or beliefs and bury our old out-of-date ways for good.
When Uranus arrives, he provokes sudden awareness, dramatic breakdowns and all kinds of accidents and incidents that destabilise us momentarily, so that we can accept we need to let go and review everything that is holding us back! Never try to fight against the impact of Uranus. If at any time during your journey through life, you feel (or even fear) that you are going to have to give in and abandon old habits to start afresh, accept this extreme planet's influx of energy. If you do not give in to these commands to make changes, it will break you! But whilst the sudden fits of anger of this electrifying planet are to be feared, he can also be counted upon to transform our lives and add some spice to our time on earth! Discovered in March 1781 by musician and amateur astronomer, William Herschel, Uranus unveils and foreshadows future major upheavals.
This star that portrays itself as the defender of freedoms and the one that opens doors and overturns established codes, seems (by synchronicity) to have thus heralded the French Revolution, which in 1789 changed the face of the world by releasing the people from the shackles of the monarchy and the privileges assumed by a minority to be a divine right! With Uranus, Man places his faith in his own kind and exalts human virtues, demanding equality for all (alas, cutting off a few heads on the way). In this magnificent and terrifying episode, we can recognise the ambivalence of Uranus, who gives freely with one hand, but can also set himself up as a much more intransigent judge than the one whose diktat he refused to accept a short time before!
Uranus has been moving through Taurus since 2018 and will only definitively leave the sign on April 26, 2026. In this peaceful sign, the free electron of the zodiac stirs up a bit (sometimes a lot) of chaos in the ranks! Under its influence, there's no question of standing firm on our positions but rather preparing ourselves to be lifted from the ground, to accept breaking away from ways of functioning that have run their course!
While Taurus loves comfort and prefers not to be disturbed at any hour of the day or night, it's unsure whether it will appreciate the forceful manner in which Uranus often clears a path and fully expresses its somewhat transgressive nature! Particularly around April 21, 2024, where certain defenses, beliefs, and established codes could suddenly be overturned to compel us to cross a threshold, to break with the past.
Therefore, it will be a matter of adapting, willingly or forcibly, to tremors that are likely to shake structures (economic, social, ideological) and beliefs, acquisitions that some thought were unshakable. Uranus will propel us (by spring 2026) into the pool of change. It's up to us to decide whether we jump in willingly or cling to the poolside!
In any case, Uranus will ensure that the lines move, and we can bet that its transit in Taurus will ultimately push us, without any possible escape, from one world to another!
Hoping that the opening world leads us to the best version of ourselves!
Between May 15th and November 6th, 2018, Uranus will make an incursion into Taurus, a peaceful and slightly conservative sign, who often prefers to camp on their positions (even if the latter are uncomfortable) rather than to free themselves of their attachments (sentimental and material). Uranus does not evolve very easily on this ground and could generate impatient movements, temptations to turn the tide as much as to cling to its values.
Let us, however, rely on Uranus to help us extract from this creative sign gifts and potentials previously unexplored or insufficiently exploited but also ... to let go of what hinders us because it no longer works! Uranus will settle, as of March 2019, in Taurus (until 2026) and will express its free spirited energy, certainly disruptive but probably essential to the achievement of surpassing oneself and outdated codes!
If You're an Aries...
Since March 12th, 2011, Uranus gives you tough love! You who have the reputation of being a magician, of overflowing with ideas (so much that you rarely bring them to fruition) and with energy will be able to experience the liberating and innovative power of this planet naturally linked to brilliant and spectacular discoveries and the most amazing and most wacky inventions! But if you have, from this date, an inexhaustible reservoir of creativity, take care not to use this force to believe you are authorized to do anything, to dare anything ... without compensation!
Uranus in Aries should help us to set up revolutionary systems of thought, to breathe new life into our ideologies, to boost our vital forces, but at what cost? Dear Aries, the best, by definition, seems to you the enemy of the good. Certain passages may seem attractive but they are dangerous in the long term for the balance of the world. So, prefer an evolution in good conscience, which by opening a road towards tomorrow will then show the way to everything! You are by nature an initiator ... please stay that way!
If You're a Taurus...
Taurus friends, expect to be shaken up a bit (or a lot) by the time April 2026 rolls around (for some since 2018)! No more lounging in your comfort zone; it's time to dare to embark on the adventure!
Whether it's about fully exploiting your gifts or discovering new ones that have been dormant within you, count on Uranus to awaken you, to invite you to create and push boundaries, to surpass certain limits you hesitated to transgress for fear of sacrificing your comfort in this quest for transcendence, for something else! Also, prepare to undergo (or initiate) emotional ruptures, to bid farewell to a past that is now obsolete.
Different encounters are also to be expected, as well as the need to reassess your priorities, to consider an inner evolution that opens you up to other perspectives in all areas!
If you truly embrace this, you'll have the opportunity to more fully develop your talents and perhaps even capture certain subtle energies that you'll channel effectively to create and tune into other universes (inner and outer).
Resonating with your element (earth),you could then serve as a relay antenna between the sky and the earth. A magnificent program to fulfill by accepting to spread our wings, to integrate the powerful vortex that Uranus opens between us and the infinite field of possibilities.
