This Wednesday, March 6th, 2019, Uranus leaves Aries, the sign of self, and re-enters Taurus, the sign of money, security, and nature, where it will remain until 2026. It takes Uranus 84 years to cycle through the zodiac, so for most people reading this article, this is your very first Uranus in Taurus transit and it will likely be your last.
Uranus is the planet of revolution and upheaval. It is the planet of the future, and as such he governs modern science, technology, invention, new discoveries, and humanitarianism. Taurus, a fixed Earth sign ruled by Venus, oversees government, banking, finance, material possessions, weather, land, agriculture, beauty and the arts. When you have a fixed sign like Taurus meeting with a rebellious planet like Uranus, there's bound to be some tension. The last time the world experienced a Uranus in Taurus transit was from 1934-1942. This time in history was characterized by the Great Depression, the Dust Bowl, the rise of dictatorship (Hitler, Stalin, and Mussolini), followed by the beginning of World War II and the Holocaust.
