What YOU Need to Know about Uranus in Taurus

What: Uranus in Taurus

When: May 15, 2018 - July 7, 2025

Takeaway: Revolutionary changes and disruptions to the area of YOUR life ruled by Taurus

Who its Impacting: Everyone, but esp. Fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius)

     Since 2018, Uranus has been transiting Taurus, shaking up and challenging the status quo of the world (literally). But this transit, which extends into 2026, has also been revolutionizing a specific area of life for YOU. Uranus, the planet of revolution and sudden, shocking change, has been retrograde in Venus-ruled Taurus since Aug. 2023, and it stations direct on Jan. 27. While there is some debate about just how much outer planet retrogrades and direct motions impact you, I’m certain it’s a transit worth your attention. Because it signals a shift: Uranus is once more (and with a bull-like tenacity) encouraging you, me, and everyone around us to break from the routine, and change your approach to money, possessions, and overall comfort. 

      Shocking as it may sound, I haven’t written much about Uranus. Sure, I’ve written about the less-discussed aspects of Uranus—Uranus Dominance, Uranus as a “higher octave” planet—and I write about Uranus any time I notice the outer planet is making any intriguing moves, but as far as far as Uranus in Taurus go? That has somehow, and for some reason, escaped my purview. Until now. 

Uranus Meaning in Astrology

     As ruler of Aquarius and the 11th House, Uranus is the planet of progress, revolution, and invention. The outer planet shares its name and mythological roots with Ouranos, a figure from ancient Greek mythology. Ouranos, often referred to as the god of the sky, was a primordial deity and the personification of the heavens. The connection between Uranus in astrology and Ouranos in mythology reflects the archetypal essence of liberation, innovation, and cosmic upheaval. Ouranos played a crucial role in the generational saga of the Titans, and his influence can be seen in the dynamic and transformative nature of the planet Uranus. 

     Just as Ouranos brought about profound change in the mythological narrative, astrological Uranus carries a similar revolutionary energy. As the planet of disruption, revolution and innovation, Uranus wants to shake you up, wake you up, and free you from the outdated patterns, relationships, and/or pursuits that have become stagnant. Stagnation, tradition, and the status quo are prime targets for Uranus’ shocking energy. 

      Uranus isn't just about chaos, though, and its disruptive energy serves a greater purpose; Uranus is an illuminator, casting an unignorable light on innovative paths, and urging you towards unconventional breakthroughs. In its simplest, rawest form, Uranus fosters meaningful changes. (in the birth chart, Uranus represents your uniqueness, brilliance, and innovative qualities.) Because Uranus thrives in the realm of the unconventional, celebrating individuality, this planet's rebellious spirit aligns perfectly with the progressive vibes of Aquarius and the 11th House, fostering a cosmic kinship that encourages you to question, challenge, and innovate.

Uranus in Taurus Meaning in Astrology

     That’s all well and good, right? It’s an idealistic picture of Uranus in astrology, a celebratory anthem: Change! Innovation! Revolution! Ra-ra-ra! But as we all know in reality, change is a challenge, breakthroughs often feel like breakdowns, and being shocked in any way, shape, or form hurts like hell. Yes, you know change is necessary in life, but that doesn’t make it any easier. And neither does Uranus. This is especially true when Uranus transits a fixed sign like Taurus.

     Yes, Taurus is a fixed earth sign that loathes and resists change, hates being woken up from anything, and thinks both stagnation and tradition are good things. Ruled by Venus, Taurus is associated with values, possessions, and the tangible aspects of life. When the unconventional energy of Uranus collides with the steadfast nature of Taurus, it heralds a period of groundbreaking shifts in the realms of finance, agriculture, and the tangible aspects of our lives.

     Uranus in Taurus challenges the status quo of economic systems and traditional approaches to wealth, bringing innovations and disruptions in financial technologies, currency systems, and agricultural practices. We’ve already begun to see these changes in our world, too: the rise (and fall, and rise) of cryptocurrency and blockchain technology, the post-Covid recession and meteoric rise in prices of food & goods, higher cost of living, the catastrophic effects of natural disasters caused by global warming…

     The stability associated with Taurus has been upended, leading to sudden changes in markets, resource allocation, and the way we perceive and interact with material resources. Uranus in Taurus encourages us to reevaluate our relationship with the Earth and our material possessions. The transit is continuing to prompt a collective reconsideration of what we value and how we utilize the resources available to us.  

     If there’s one major takeaway for you to stash in the back pocket of your mind, it’s this: Uranus revels in discomfort and instability; Taurus lives for comfort and stability. That’s the crux of the matter and the main source of tension for this transit. The area of YOUR chart ruled by Taurus is seeking comfort, pleasure, stability, and safety; Uranus is moving through this area to challenge you to grow out of your comfort zone, and it's doing this by turning things on its head, challenging the status quo, and maybe even ripping away some of that comfort / pleasure and security. Is this bad? No. Is it uncomfortable? Probably. But the discomfort can only worsen if you keep running from or ignoring the changes. 

     So, yes: The transit of Uranus in Taurus brings significant shifts and disruptions in areas governed by Taurus, which include values, finances, possessions, and the material world. Taurus, being ruled by Venus, is associated with stability, security, sensuality, and the enjoyment of life's pleasures. Uranus, on the other hand, is known for its disruptive, revolutionary, and unpredictable energy. When these two forces come together, it creates a dynamic interplay between tradition and innovation, stability and change.
