On Wednesday, March 6, 2019, the planet Uranus moves into Taurus for the next seven years.
The energy of Uranus is associated with innovation, revolution, rebellion, liberation and freedom. Uranus often brings us unexpected, rug-pulling events that serve to break rules that no longer serve us, demolish outdated structures and systems and bring us the potential for evolution and radical change. Uranus can be considered the Great Cosmic Catalyst who serves to bring us into alignment with the Cosmic Plan.
The energy of Uranus can feel profoundly disruptive on it’s path to transformation.
When we trust the divine unfolding of the Cosmic Plan, we roll with the flow of Uranus and recognize that he is deliberately removing worn-out ideas, structures and thought forms that are holding us back. Uranus can clear the path for our momentum and progress
The mature influence of Uranus can bring about deep changes that serve to better the way in which we organize ourselves collectively. But, to reap the gifts of a Uranian cycle, we have to have a deep sense of faith, a trust in the Cosmic Plan and a knowledge of our Authentic Selves. We have to know our touch-points and anchors to hold us steady as the ground beneath us shifts and shakes.
If we panic in the face of Uranian events, we run the risk of setting off a series of immature, reactive responses increasing chaos and turmoil.
The energy of Taurus is deeply grounded, giving us the drive to take action and implement ideas and innovations. The sign of Taurus rules finances, including earnings, banking, budgets, money and material resources. With Venus as it’s ruler, it also influences value systems, morals, values, security, physical possessions, personal self-esteem and talents, attitudes and Life Force Energy.
Taurus, an earth sign, also rules the land and the earth.
In Human Design, a cross-cultural archetype system that is a synthesis of Eastern and Western Astrology, the Chinese I’Ching, the Hindu Chakra System and Kabbalah (learn more about Human Design at www.quantumalignmentsystem.com), the energy of Taurus is represented by 6 “Gates”. We will experience the archetype of each of these Gates over the course of this Uranus transit.
Understanding and working with the energy of Uranus through Human Design Transits.
The Gates themes that we are working with over the next seven years are:
The Gate 3: Mutation
The energy to see what else is possible and to innovate with new ideas.
Affirmation: I accept and embrace change and love what is. I trust that what I am experiencing right now in this moment is the perfect experience to support me in creating what I intend and desire. Each step of the journey is absolutely perfect right now.
The Gate 27: Nourishing

The world needs me to play the role I intended to play and the greatest contribution I make is to share my Light, my Love, Myself with the world. I never hold back. I radiate. I am a crucial part of the Light of the Wholeness of Humanity.
The Gates of Taurus that will be highlighted by Uranus give us a deeper sense of the evolutionary themes we are exploring through this powerful cycle.
To understand the full power of what’s ahead, we have to start first by looking at what happened the last time Uranus visited Taurus and the themes we’ve been exploring during the last few years setting us up to be ready for the initiation that Uranus is bringing us.
Looking back at History and Uranus in Pisces
During The last cycle of Uranus in Taurus in the early 1930s to 1942 we saw the heart of the Great Depression, the dust bowl, WW2, fascism and crazy dictators. We saw, in America, the First and Second New Deal and the founding of key financial support structures, including social security, the FDIC (Federal Deposit Insurance), FCIC (Federal Crop Insurance), FHA (Federal Housing Authority) and the SEC (Securities and Exchange Commission).
Over the last few years, astrologically, the celestial weather has been inviting us to redefine the stories we tell about who we perceive ourselves to be. The stories we tell about who we are set the direction for what we attract into our lives and the direction our life path leads us. This has been both a personal and a collective process leaving us with a renewed vision of who we are and what we are wanting to create. It’s up to Uranus to now clear the path and set the stage to make our stories come true.
The last couple of years have been much like taking a big dose of cosmic truth-telling serum. The planets have been forcing lies and truths to bubble up to the surface for our examination. We’ve been exploring concepts like “fake news” and working on remembering to trust ourselves first and to look within our own Hearts for what is real, reliable and true.
All of the revelations, as painful and ugly as some of them have been, have been setting us up to be ready for the big sweeping changes Uranus is promising us.
Looking forward: Radical change may be coming
Uranus in Taurus is asking us to redefine our perceptions of the preciousness of humanity. As we move away from material consciousness into a quantum consciousness, people can no longer be seen as commodities or numbers. Uranus will beg of us to see the value in each individual and conduct ourselves with respect for the unique and irreplaceable role that each human plays in the cosmic plan.
This very basic shift will force us to re-evaluate government, education, economy and how we take care of each other helping us to see that we are not free until we are all free.
This Uranian shift will bring the health of the planet into focus. We will no longer be able to afford to deny climate change and we’ll have to deal with the idea that we are all under the same sun and living on the same earth ship. Uranus will help us discover solutions to a situation that might initially feel impossible or ill-fated. These changes will force us to ask ourselves what do we really need and to redefine abundance as sufficiency and trusting that we will have everything we need when we need it.
To stabilize the earth changes, we will need to change our values and create sustainably. To be sustainable in the world, we have to first and foremost, become sustainable ourselves. We will need to be personally resilient and work in the world in such a way that allows us to sustain our personal energy. We will discover how to create from a place of sufficiency instead of fear of lack, translating this faith into right action and long-term perspectives that will allow us to restore and conserve our natural resources.
This serves two vital functions. First of all, this will allow us to experience greater creativity and well-being because we won’t be operating from burnout. Secondly, by crafting an economy rooted in well-being versus material gain, we take ourselves off the “time for money hamster wheel” and we begin a collective exploration of what it will take to lift all occupants on the planet to a high quality of living.
Businesses that focus on expanding well-being for others will serve on the leading edge of a new economy. Taking good care of your workforce, building strong relationships with your clients and valuing the unique contribution of each team member will also create a new definition of business success.
We will be invited by Uranus to explore our attachment to the material world and to stream line what is truly important to us. Of course, because this is a Uranian shift, it will have all kinds of crazy twists and unexpected turns. To move us forward with Love and Compassion, we will need wise, guiding Hearts who have a clear connection with the true nature of the Cosmic Plan, to shepherd the collective towards global initiatives that create a world of sustainable, equitable peace.
Expect to see old collective structures crumble. Outdated “systems” that seek to make human beings into “formulas” and fail to take into account the preciousness of each individual person will no longer be sustainable on the planet. This potentially includes corporations, government “systems” such as the healthcare “system” and the education “system”.
We will see financial revolutions that create alternative economies using new, more equitable forms of currencies. Pay attention to concepts like blockchain and cryptocurrencies, resource sharing and co-working and co-housing.
Uranian Creativity and the Quantum Shift
We may find, as old systems die away, that we enter into cycles that feel like frightening voids. Again, wise, guiding Hearts know that these voids bring us tremendous creative opportunities and afford us a clean slate, a chance to create from a deeper, more aligned connection with our Heart and a new sense of appreciation for the beauty of the Earth and humanity.
Expect big breakthroughs in technology helping us resolve the challenges facing the Earth today. While global warming can feel frightening, it will also be a powerful catalyst for technological growth and evolution. Mutation happens faster in warmer temperatures and we’ll see that these changes bring huge potential for creative expansion. As counterintuitive as it seems, global warming will be the new great equalizing force on the planet. When we save each other, we invariably also save ourselves and our loved ones.
This sweeping change heralds a new era of creativity, where we learn how to make the seemingly impossible our new reality. The planet we live on in April 2026 will be a radically different place than the one we inhabit today. Don’t let the moment to moment shifts blind you to the long-term benefits of what is at hand. We are cleaning house, sweeping away old, out-dated consciousness and setting the stage for a new era in humanity, an era filled with possibility, hope, equitability, sustainability, peace and compassion.
“We will find that what might, at times, feel like the end of the world, is just really a good lesson and a cosmic cleansing that lays the path for a world aligned with Heart.”
Buckle up! It’s going to be a thrilling ride!!
