Okay, May 15 is an astrological biggie. The planet Uranus enters earth sign Taurus. It was last in this sign between 1934-1942.
Uranus is a fascinating planet in the astrological scheme of things. It rules Aquarius, genius, individuality, earthquakes, inventions, the Internet, the sudden and unexpected, electronics, technology, the future. It’s about the visionary, the unimagined, the surprise that hits you out of the blue. Its job at a personal level is to shake us out of our ruts and routines, so everything that no longer serves us falls out of our lives, making space for the new.
From May 15-November 6, it’s in Taurus, then the planet turns retrograde and on March 6, 2019, it enters Taurus again and will remain there until 2026. So the 6 months between that May date and November, you‘ll get a taste of what this transit will mean for you.
Here’s why you should pay attention to this transit. On March 11, 2011, when Uranus entered warrior archetype Aries, Japan experienced a 9.0 quake that triggered a tsunami that resulted in the meltdown of nuclear reactors at Fukushima. It was a tragically literal manifestation of that planet in that sign and the Uranian energy at work.
Taurus rules beauty, art, money, stability, endurance, sensuality, physical pleasures and material goods. It’s one of the most stubborn and rigid signs in the zodiac and the energy of Uranus, by contrast, is the most disruptive. You can see how this transit may not be a total picnic. That said, though, at the end in 2026, you’ll look back and think one of two things: OMG, it’s over or What an incredible adventure!
Globally, the financial markets may be rattled, shaken up. Your IRA, the value of your home, your services, your products, may plunge – or soar. Which it is depends on where Taurus is in your natal chart, how well you deal with change, and – most of all – your mental and emotional attitude toward abrupt change and life in general.
The volcanic eruptions in Hawaii may be an early indication of Uranus entering earth sign Taurus. Tunde Atunrase, a Facebook friend and author who wrote a book about remote viewing, notes that in 1998, remote viewer #001 Joseph McMoneagle predicted this.
“If you live in Hawaii or know anyone who does, here’s some professional remote viewing news you might want to pass on. This was a double blind remote viewing prediction published in 1998 by remote viewer #001 Joseph McMoneagle”
“’There will be significant volcanic action in the Hawaiian Islands between 2014 and 2023, resulting in the abandonment of a now-occupied island.”
This prediction can be found on page 212 of Joe’s book The Ultimate Time Machine.
Abandonment is a strong word and although Joe’s timing on this prediction is a bit wide, this isn’t unusual when psychics make predictions about anything. At the moment they are making their prediction, they’re seeing what’s most probable, based on the free will that we exercise as individuals and as a collective.
On the same day, at 7:48 a.m. EDT, there’s a new moon in Taurus, which spells new opportunities, new doors opening. Both powerful Pluto and energetic Mars will form beneficial angles to this new moon, so it’s going to be an exciting and surprising time. Less than 4 hours later, Uranus slips into Taurus – and that’s where life gets really interesting.
