Aside from Wednesday’s New Moon in Pisces, the major headline news this week is the ingress of Uranus into Taurus. The planet of revolution and paradigm change finally shifts into Taurus full-time on the 6th for a stay of 7 years. Unlike last year’s ingress (May 2018) there will be no more push-me-pull-you retrogrades back into Aries this time around.
Although Uranus should be a lot less volatile and disruptive in the sense of wildfires, popular unrest and shock violence, it could bring on more geotechnical and geomagnetic disturbances like earthquakes, volcanic eruptions etc
Over the next seven years, to see an acceleration in the food and farming revolution as Uranus continues to make us change the way we produce and consume food.
In mundane astrology, Taurus is concerned with banking, farming, business, money and finances and material security. So it makes sense that these are the areas where we may see some gradual but fundamental paradigm shifts, especially as new technologies are developed (Uranus is the tech king). This is also the first of two signs ruled by Venus and so is also associated with luxury goods, along with the fashion and cosmetics industry, so expect traditional conceptions of beauty to continue to be challenged.
The upshot: Cardinal signs (Aries, Libra, Cancer, Capricorn) can breathe a sigh of relief – all the turbulence of the last 7 years is now over. It’s now the turn of the fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius) to enjoy a shake-up (or wake-up) whichever you prefer.
How this will affect you personally depends on: a) where Uranus is located in your chart, what it rules and which house cusp is governed by the sign of Taurus (along with a whole lot of other technical stuff like whether it aspects anything in your natal chart).
