Uranus in Taurus / UAC 2018

Uranus in Taurus

This past week was a big one as far as the current astrological weather goes. We had a number of planets ingress, or move into a new sign, including Uranus (on May 15th), which only changes signs every 7 years. While other planets ingress into new signs every few days (the moon), or months (Mars, Venus, Sun), Uranus is one of the slower moving Trans-Saturnian (outside of saturn's orbit) planets that affects us in a much more collective way. That's not to say that you won't feel it individually, because you most certainly will!

Uranus has been associated with circumstances that shock us out of a crystallized pattern. If Saturn is responsible for creating the boundaries & structures, Uranus is responsible for shattering ones that have outlived their usefulness. Sometimes, it comes on like a lightning bolt or an earthquake. More often than not, it is an unpredictable, disruptive influence.

For the past seven years, Uranus has been passing through the sign of Aries, which has coincided with many cultural uprisings on a macro-level and many shifts in personal identity in our own everyday lives. If you know your rising sign, look to the house that Aries rules to find out the area of your life that has undergone this change.

As Uranus moves into Taurus, we all will be experiencing it's energy in a different area of our lives than the previous seven years. For example, I personally have Aries on the 9th house of higher education, travel, & belief system. Uranus has been shocking me out of old patterns of belief and helped me move forward on a new path. As it moves into my 10th house (career, public reputation) of Taurus, it will be helping me to restructure a new and innovative career in Astrology! : )

Look to where Taurus falls in your chart to ascertain what area of your life has grown stale and needs a little bit of Uranian disruption & genius.  It's much easier at this time to allow the changes to happen rather than fight them. Taurus is a fixed earth sign, so this may be an area of your life that you looked to as a stable foundation. It can be unsettling at times to have our most cherished roots shaken up, but you will be better for the shift.

Uranus moved into Taurus on the same day as a New Moon in Taurus. Look for new beginnings this past week and pay attention to flashes of insight & progressive thinking. On Wed, May 16th, Mars the planet of will, conflict and separation moves into Aquarius and immediately squares Uranus. This can bring tension into some area of your life (the one ruled by Aquarius) and you will need to undergo a bit of a reevaluation in the coming months as you try on your new Uranian identities. Mars will be going retrograde (appearing to move backwards, internalization of energy, reevaluation) on June 26th until August 27. Take the summer months slowly if you can. Take any delays as signs to refine your vision. Try to include the Mars / Aquarius ruled area of your life in the discussion. There will be plenty of time to move forward with your Uranus in Taurus plans. (7 years in fact!) Feel free to reach out if you would like to set up a personalized reading to help you through your Uranus in Taurus transition.

UAC 2018

On a personal note, I am excited to share that I will be attending the United Astrology Conference in Chicago this upcoming week. Talk about a Uranus in the 10th house experience! I received a full scholarship from AFAN, or the Association For Astrological Networking, and will be taking in lectures from many of my favorite astrological heros & authors, including Robert Hand, Steven Forrest, Chris Brennan and many more. UAC is a special conference that only happens about twice a decade and will be hosting over 1000 astrologers from around the world. I will do my best to share some of the insights that I gain from the experience! Feel free to follow me on instagram for some picture updates. : )


Evenstar's Chalice

On Saturday, June 16th, I will be doing drop in readings at Evenstar's Chalice in Ypsilanti from 1-5pm. Here is a link to the facebook group if you are interested! Please help me spread the word if you can. : )


Astrology Classes

Last, but not least, I wanted to gauge your interest in me offering another Beginning Astrology class. I've just finished up two very successful sessions at the Enlightened Soul Center in Ann Arbor and would like to schedule another. We have been meeting Mondays from 7:30-9pm for the last two sessions. I would happy to arrange this time again if there is interest, but am open to alternates. I also wanted to know if folks would be interested in some more focused short classes, instead of a survey of all areas of astrology, perhaps just the planets or just the signs. It might make for a more in depth experience! I would be grateful for your feedback.

Anyway, hope you all are having a wonderful spring! Hope to see you all soon. : )
