For All Signs: The planet Uranus is featured this week because it is now changing signs from Aries to Taurus. He remains in a given sign for seven years. Uranus was known as the Sky god to the ancient Greeks. In our horoscopes Uranus represents the desire to individuate, even at the cost of separation from tribe and family. This planet does not follow the planetary “rules” because it rolls with its axis pointed toward the sun. He is prominent when an individual (or a country) steps away from the traditional to the unbeaten path. It was discovered in 1781 and has become known by astrologers as the planet of revolution and rebels due to its discovery in time in proximity with the US, French, and Russian revolutions. When Uranus is prominent in the sky, we feel pulled to take our own path or follow a unique doorway. He represents totally creative and inventive answers. The sign of Taurus is related to money, time and available resources. It is an earth sign, which suggests unexpected shifts and changes below the planet’s surface. To me, the associations to earthquakes, tsunamis, and other activities of the earth’s crusts are likely to show themselves in the extreme. That will force us to focus attention on creative prevention. Read your sun sign and rising signs below for hints of the future.
Aries: Income fluctuates wildly with Uranus in Taurus or it begins to come from more than one source. Those with this position are more willing to take financial risks in order to gain increased rewards–and sometimes it works! You may be working more than one job. It is not uncommon for this position to bring windfalls, but don’t count on it.
Taurus: The planet Uranus enters your sign now and will be there for a seven year stint. Are you restless? Wishing for a break from the routine of your life? You may or may not recognize it, but Uranus will help you break free of fears that have chained you to the old grind. Taurus is the least likely to initiate change, preferring the known devil to the unknown potential. Your self-image, along with your hair color and style of dress will alter as well.
Gemini: Disclosure of old family secrets that alter your perception of self may occur during the next 7.5 years. You develop much greater awareness of the unconscious and your interest in alternate forms of healing intensifies. Episodes of intuition or psychic awareness are likely to increase. Be aware of your tendency to sabotage yourself with needless eccentric behavior.
Cancer: During Uranus’ transit of Taurus (7 years) you are likely to be exposed to a new social life and broaden your sense of community and friendship. It is possible you will withdraw from associations or groups that have been with you a long time. You will attract unusual people into your life that will serve to expand your sense of humanitarianism. Your overall goals and life choices will be shifting.
Leo: Uranus’ tour of Taurus symbolizes important changes and probable expansion of your career arena. Your boredom with old routines drives you to explore the untried. You have a need to rebel, which may cause difficulty with authority figures. Avant-garde electronics become a focal point. You’ll be very attracted to the unusual in occupation–the more eccentric, the better.
Virgo: While Uranus moves through Taurus, you will be experiencing a rapidly expanding world view. This may come about through travel, higher education or attraction to people who hail from an altogether different environment. You may feel the need to explore alternative religions and/or philosophies.
Libra: During the next 7 years of Uranus in Taurus you’ll be introduced to a much greater perspective on the world of finance. You are also likely to grow through exposure to those who can teach you more deeply about yourself, psychologically, sexually and spiritually. Issues around birth, death, and transformation play an important role.
Scorpio: New and unique experiences will likely be brought to you through changes in situation made by your partner (business and/or personal). Those with clientele will see major shifts in whom they attract. Scorpio tends to resist change, but this is a message to relax and follow the new currents.
Sagittarius: You will probably enter a long period of changes related to employment. A new situation might present you with a job that brings something new and different every day. Another arena of new interest is likely to develop in the area of personal health. You may be attracted to alternative healing methods. Don’t hesitate to try.
Capricorn: Uranus’ transit of Taurus is likely to present unique or avant-garde opportunities to develop your personal creativity. Those open to romance will attract unusual people who broaden your life, but don’t look for the security of commitment. Unexpected pregnancy may be part of the changing scenario. Take precautions if warranted.
Aquarius: Your probability of making one or more moves of home and hearth is strong while Uranus is in Taurus. It might be easier to put your belongings in storage than to try to drag them around with you. Property may begin to feel like tons of baggage. Your perspective on your personal definition of “security” will change over the next 7.5 years.
Pisces the Fish: (Feb. 18 – Mar 19) Uranus in Taurus will free you to explore new and untried territory through travel or via high tech gadgetry. Your habitual attitudes and your normal patterns of communication may alter considerably over the next 7-8 yrs. Unusual situations develop involving your neighborhood, siblings, and roommates. A new sports car sounds appealing.
