About Uranus And Taurus
Uranus is associated with electricity, lightning, and wild weather as well as genius and brilliance that come as lightning flashes of inspiration. It also brings a powerfully disruptive or even rebellious energy designed to help us change—and fast—as well as free ourselves and others and let go of the past.
It carries a knack for mechanics, aeronautics, and electronics as well as anything high tech, futuristic, or visionary, from outer space and psychic research to astrology, inventions, miracles, and discoveries.
This revolutionary planet may be somewhat uncomfortable in practical Taurus, which likes tradition and resists change because it wants security. For example, Taurus rules nearly everything related to money such as cash, checkbooks, banks and bankers, profits, borrowing and spending, securities and stocks, treasuries, and financiers.
Taurus also governs cattle, copper, jewelry, art, and possessions in general. In addition, it is associated with beauty, both artistic and personal through adornment, and our response to beauty, culture, and the arts. It’s especially fond of music, singing, and sculpture.
All these areas will be ripe for change under Uranus’s watch.

Learn To Enjoy The Unexpected With Uranus
Before the Uranus in Taurus period even arrived, you may have had a sense of excitement or a feeling that "change is in the air."
If so, you’re absolutely right. Whenever Uranus is in the picture, just about anything could happen—and suddenly.
If you get excited by whatever’s new, experimental, and unexpected, you’ll enjoy surfing Uranus’s electrical waves and sudden shifts.
But if you’re the kind of person who feels uncomfortable with change or even resists it, you may find this energy stressful. Fortunately, astrology can help you get much more at ease with Uranus, how it works, and how to make its quirky changes work for you.
Read on to see how you can turn changes into liberation that gives you wonderful new opportunities.
Uranus In Aries Results: Clues For Taurus Era
One of the most helpful tools for navigating big astrological changes like this is to look back at previous cycles.
In this case, we can see what happened in the past seven years while Uranus was in Aries. That will provide clues about what we’re building on in the coming seven years.
During its time in Aries, Uranus brought many challenges, and you may have felt them keenly from 2012 through 2015. During that period, Uranus made seven difficult alignments with Pluto in Capricorn. These powerful forces pushed us to move past obstacles, overcome longstanding problems, and change ourselves and many aspects of our lives.
Uranus is a maverick who goes his own way, and in Aries, this planet’s need for independence, leadership, and even loner status reached new heights and fueled protests and pushbacks against powers that be.
Protest, Liberation, Violence
For example, the Occupy and Black Lives Matter movements arose, channeling these energies to push for constructive change. This period also brought Obamacare (the Affordable Care Act) and its detractors as well as renewed diplomatic relations between the U.S. and Cuba.
With Aries associated with hard driving energies as well as fire, violence, young men, warrior and military activities, and with Uranus linked to fire power, ammunition, and projectiles, the world stage saw dramatic expressions of these potentials.
The volatile combination of Uranus and Aries brought not only protest and desires for liberation but violence in cases such as the Arab Spring, the deaths of Libya’s former leader Muammar Gaddafi and one-time al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden, the invasion of Afghanistan, and numerous terrorist bombings (including at the Boston Marathon) and U.S. school shootings.
This period also brought Brexit and the United States’ unprecedented 2016 presidential election.
New Technology, Startups
In October 2011, Apple founder Steve Jobs died, leaving a legacy that continues to affect the world in unforeseen ways.
The tech world carried on and gained even more momentum. With Uranus’s penchant for innovation and Aries’s love of moving fast and making new beginnings at a moment’s notice, the world saw a dizzying array of technological changes.
Instagram launched in October 2010 and took off in the Uranus in Aries period. "Insta" and anything "instant" or sudden fits both Aries’s impatience and Uranus’s energy of sudden breakthroughs.
The world saw plenty of other changes in social media as well as constant platform changes, countless apps, and continuing innovation. Of special note: the selfie phenomenon sums up this era on a personal level, given Aries’s preoccupation with the self and Uranus’s link to technology.
Aries-born people typically love speed and cars. That energy combined with Uranus’s innovation to create cars that don’t require drivers. In 2012, Google acquired the first licenses for such cars, and three states passed laws allowing them.
Finally, you may have noticed constant change in personal identity since 2011, both in your life and the lives of others. Many people tried new images and careers over and over again. Social media and the internet made it easier than ever to change our images: just upload a new photo for your profile, redefine your personal brand, and take off in a new direction.

Uranus In Taurus 2018 Through 2025: Seismic Opportunity
How can Uranus’s innovative spirit play out during its sojourn in Taurus?
We may see changes affecting our planet, Earth. Of all the zodiac signs, three are earth signs (Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn), Taurus is the most earthy of all because it’s a fixed sign.
In fact, Taurus is associated with Earth herself. That’s good news, because Taurus can help ground, literally, all Uranus’s erratic and electrical impulses. We may undergo this process as a seismic experience, meaning the Earth may quake or shake a bit as Uranus’s vibrations stir things up.
Thanks to its steadiness and patience, Taurus will help us ground Uranus’s lightning bolts of genius. With awareness, our bodies can tap into that power to create workable plans and simplified systems that make life easier, more comfortable, and more beautiful.
We also can use these vibrations spiritually to receive inspiration through prayer and meditation. In addition, Uranus may give us some "eureka!" moments, when we see with clear understanding and have opportunities to apply our new knowledge to help others and make the world a better place.
Taurus’s steadying, realistic force will bring some relief after Uranus’s seven years in Aries, which gave us a wild ride and little time to rest or reflect.
With the Taurus period, the pace likely will slow. Taurus is ruled by loving, pleasure seeking Venus, who never wants to rush.
In the years ahead, we may see changes in several areas:
- Earth and her well being: Uranus’s brilliance can help us craft practical solutions to cleaning up the planet and caring better for this place we call home.
- Money: With Taurus governing money, especially how we earn it, we may see dramatic shifts in the financial and banking worlds. Given Uranus’s need for freedom, a new call for financial liberation may sound forth, yielding innovative approaches to creating a fairer, more sensible economy throughout the world.
- Animals: Uranus’s presence in Taurus, which rules cattle (including pigs) as well as the places they live and the livestock policies and industry that affect their lives, may be in for dramatic changes. Animal liberation movements may take off, and more and more people may turn to a vegan way of life that frees them as much as it does the animals they no longer eat. Uranus’s association with chiropractors also may see new uses of chiropractic to assist our four-legged companions.
- Possessions: Uranus also may push us to free ourselves from excessive numbers of possessions and attachments to them. Unusual solutions for sharing equipment and resources may arise, and barter and borrowing may increase as well. Taurus is strongly associated with movable possessions, especially valuables such as jewelry, so the gem trade (especially fair trade diamonds) and jewelry industry may see changes, too. New designs may feature Taurus’s metal, copper.
- Beauty: Uranus could shake up the beauty and fashion industries, with bold and futuristic looks. Also, the power of the individual consumer to dictate product trends may increase, as more people seek garments and looks that reflect their uniqueness.
- Art and culture: Taurus also is associated with the arts, particularly music, singing, and sculpture. All these may undergo radical shifts as artists experiment with technology and novel approaches and collaborations.
- Medicine: Taurus rules the throat, so we may see new treatments for ailments affecting this area as well as technology allowing those who have lost their ability to speak, either from illness or injury, to communicate via speech. Similarly, voice driven technology may see more advances now.
- Tradition: Taurus loves tradition as well as comfort. With Uranus in this sign, all traditions are up for review and may yield better, more practical ways to honor the past. On a personal level, many people may find their family traditions shifting to accommodate changing times and needs.
Uranus In Taurus Through The Zodiac: How It Affects Each Sign
On a personal level, how Uranus in Taurus affects you depends on your zodiac sign.
Here’s a recap of what’s in store in this period for each sign of the zodiac:
- Aries: Look for changes related to money, especially how you earn, spend, and save. You may make one or more job changes, and your values related to possessions and materialism in general may shift.
- Taurus: Your personality and image will enter a period of experimentation and innovation. You may change your hairstyle and overall look multiple times, and your identity may morph as you try new projects and interests. Health, your character, and how others perceive you also may undergo important changes, and you may try futuristic approaches to wellness.
- Gemini: Your dreams and spirituality will become charged with Uranus’s electrical powers, and you may have many inner revelations and spiritual breakthroughs. Health and psychological concerns may benefit from experimental treatments, and you might work behind the scenes on an arts project or humanitarian effort.
- Cancer: Networking will crackle with energy, and you may meet many unusual people in coming years. You also may feel a sudden desire to volunteer, start a service project or otherwise live your dreams for making the world a better place. Quirky friends will come your way, too, so be open to the weirdly wonderful.
- Leo: Your career may feel as if a lightning bolt has made contact, with Uranus electrifying your professional life. You may be seen as a pioneering or even radical leader whose style and technological genius are right for current times. Be prepared to seize unexpected opportunity quickly.
- Virgo: If you’ve dreamed of far off lands, this may be your time to visit, either for practical and work purposes or as part of a humanitarian effort. If you’re in school or getting ready to go, Uranus can give you brilliance in studies or bring a sudden opportunity your way. International matters also will benefit from this energy to help you overcome immigration or import export concerns.
- Libra: The deepest part of yourself has the potential to awaken to new revelations and realizations about your true nature. Tune in to psychic energies, mystical dreams, and opportunities to learn about these areas through meditation or a class. Also, your partner’s income and your joint finances may undergo many changes in coming years, all designed to free you both for new adventures. Stay alert to financial shifts and unexpected opportunities or gifts.
- Scorpio: Your marriage, business partnerships, and all agreements and contracts will fall under Uranus’s "let’s shake things up!" spell. If your marriage or a business relationship has been teetering toward dissolution for some time, bear in mind this period may free you and your partner if that’s the direction you wish; if you want to remain united, give your partner room to breathe and experiment together on ways to liberate your expectations and actions so your relationship pleases you both.
- Sagittarius: Your job, health, and daily life management can change now. If you want a better job, try something new and be open to learning unusual techniques or technology. In health, use the latest research to support fitness and nutrition and invest in gadgets that can help. Also, a pet may need help from a specialist using state of the science techniques, or you may adopt an animal unexpectedly.
- Capricorn: Anything related to children, from conceiving to nurturing to launching them out into the world will take on Uranus’s maverick style. You may look at high tech fertility options or help a child master arcane computer skills. If you’re artistic, Uranus can help you liberate your creative practice and potentially create works that help the world in some way.
- Aquarius: Uranus is your ruling planet, and in Taurus it occupies your home and family area. You’ll likely see shakeups in your family of origin, ancestry data, or your parents’ lives. You also may move, redecorate along minimalist lines, or to invest in land or a farm.
- Pisces: High tech will support your ability to communicate effectively. Embrace the latest social media, apps, and other technology and use it to write better, speak more effectively, or research more thoroughly. Also, your siblings may undergo dramatic changes or get involved in charitable activities; use your compassion to support their life journeys.
Here’s To The Future
Whatever this period brings, remember we’re all in the experience together.
Humanity has a chance to stand with the Earth and all creation in remaking our world into a peaceful, just, and loving place for all beings and especially our planet.
Although Uranus can be disruptive and disquieting, ultimately it benefits us by helping us see ourselves and the world differently—and by liberating us from what’s no longer useful or helpful. So often, what holds us back are obstacles of our own making, and now we can see what they are and let them go.
