Uranus officially stations Retrograde in Taurus on August 15, 2020 at 10:27 am ET.
In 2020, Uranus was direct in Taurus from January 10, 2020 until August 15, 2020.
Now, Uranus stations Retrograde in Taurus on August 15th at 10:27 am ET and will be Retrograde until January 14, 2021 at 3:37 am ET – that’s for about 5 months.
Uranus in Taurus can signify many shocks and surprises particularly related to mother earth, with the likelihood of more earthquakes, volcanoes and sudden shifts and shakeups in the natural world increasing in scale whenever Uranus is stationing to change directions.
*A note on the Uranus Transit – Uranus first entered Taurus on May 14, 2018 for brief stint until November 6, 2018, and just as suspected, like clockwork, to usher in this new change we saw Hawaii getting plenty of volcanic activity to get us started in May 2018.
Also of note, when Uranus was leaving water sign Pisces and entering fire sign Aries on March 11, 2011 that’s when we had the massive earthquake and tsunami in Japan that damaged the Nuclear Power Plant.
We’re likely to see many more of these types of earth changes over the next few years, especially when Uranus is either stationing Direct or Retrograde as he slowly transits through Taurus.
When Uranus initially entered Taurus we definitely have been seeing more attention on the environment, our impact, more consideration for how nature will turn out in the future, and be more conscious of our relationship to the earth.
With Uranus symbolizing rebellions and breakthroughs, it was especially noticeable that we saw more rebellious types speak loud about environmentalism and it was endlessly promoted as one of the most important causes of our time by the media.
During this period with Uranus in Taurus, we will get many wake up calls that we need to be more aware of our relationship to nature, which also includes our physical bodies, as we head into the future. So, take care of your body, put your feet in the grass, and enjoy the flowers to keep yourself connected to the positive support the world provides us for our lives. Your experiences in nature can lead to great epiphanies and surprising revelations. Taurus is ruled by Venus – right now Venus is in Cancer.
As signified by tech oriented and futuristic Uranus, we will also see more biological and technological mergers and changes relating to our physical world and bodies, the environment and our foods. We may be shocked and surprised by what scientists are doing in the realm of biology, artificial intelligence and technology, and it could be over the top and freaky.
Well, with all that is going on in 2020 so far, we can certainly see that some of this astrological symbolism really is playing out in the world. Since Saturn went into Aquarius in March 2020, we have seen the whole world suddenly change as social distancing started to become the norm – which is highly symbolic considering Saturn is about limitations, restrictions and control and Aquarius is the sign symbolizing social groups and the collective consciousness. This really does symbolize a technological shift into the future, but in a Big Brother kind of way as Saturn is authoritarian and controlling. A strong push of efforts toward control through bio-technology by authorities in power is strongly indicated with these placements, and while Retrograde we could see the media doubling down on efforts to convince the public to think as the media leaders and power players want us to think.
Uranus is electrifying and surprising and has a quality of unpredictability, so with Uranus stationing Retrograde again in Taurus we are likely to see another shift in our energy with some shakeups.
We are also likely to see plenty of sudden surprise shakeups and shifts in the economy, in jobs (robots vs. humans), financial changes in the economy and cryptocurrencies, and issues in jobs and housing will arise to be worked through. Add this to the big shifts in fellow earth sign Capricorn, with Jupiter, Pluto and Saturn, there is sure to be lots of intensity of transformation.
