Uranus the planet of innovation, liberation and revolution moves into Taurus May 2018, alongside a powerful stellium transiting Capricorn. The scope of these alignments will be far reaching, and fundamentally life changing, bringing about the final demise of the “old world order.” Besides all the much anticipated structural overhaul and reformation, the latest technology sets the progression of mankind on a trajectory from which there may be no return…
and while so many are focused on the political and personal dramas of the current administrations, I strongly feel we are missing the bigger picture. For the most ground breaking innovations are about to impact humankind and fundamentally alter our physical reality. The theme of super advanced technology transforming life on earth has been vastly explored in the genre of sci fi films for decades. During the course of this 7 year astrological transit we may see how accurately some of these movies predicted the successes and shortcomings of such futuristic applications.
The pioneering, experimental period of Uranus in Aries is fast coming to a close, and I’m duly concerned that many of us are not prepared for the transition that awaits us. Nor do I feel that many have yet devised their game plan to counteract all this may imply.
“Out with the old and in with the new!”
Astrology is a tool we can deploy to predict the future, allowing us time to prepare for what may lay ahead. The current astrology reveals that the powerful combination of Uranus entering Taurus, together with the stellium of outer planets- Pluto, Saturn, and Jupiter (Dec. 2019) all transiting Capricorn, generates the energetic potential for the structures and establishments of the 20th century to come crashing down, between now and 2020, with the immediate fall out effects to last another 2 years. The infrastructure of the land itself, buildings, governing authorities, the old patriarchy and its archaic monetary system; plus world leaders- including those elite, which seem impossible to topple, are all likely to take a dramatic fall.
Alongside the higher probability for earthquakes and subsidence, explosions of all sorts including volcanic eruptions could become more widespread, targeting the soil, buildings, and people. And for the first 2 1/2 years of this transit the procession and union up above of the mighty forces of Pluto, Saturn and Jupiter in Capricorn ensures the complete redistribution of power down here on Earth. This will include the custodians of valuable resources, and decisions that affect the greater collective, whether this will occur in plain sight or behind the scenes.
Meantime scientists now have the technology to absolutely and fundamentally alter the divine nature of the blueprint to life itself. Seven years from now not only will many of our old establishments be gone completely, but what we recognize as our current physical environment, and even our human, animal and plant biological process of fertilization and reproduction could all have undergone radical transformation.
Uranus in Taurus May 16th 2018– April 26th 2026
Taurus is the second sign of the zodiac, and ruled by the planet Venus relates to our human desire for love and wealth, which both establish personal stability and security. Money, material possessions, and sensual pleasures are at the top of the list of ‘wants’ for Taurus the bull. It represents Mother Earth herself, as the qualities embodied by Taurus reflect the qualities inherent in our fertile, abundant and life generating Earth planet.
Coming soon is the next big push for the newest most advanced technologies ever seen to radically transform our experience of living on this earth plane. The push will gain momentum when the innovatory planet of Uranus moves out of Aries and into Taurus. No doubt the influence of this futuristic planet on the “fixed” earth sign will feel unbearably jarring, and uncomfortable; shaking and waking us up with dramatic changes to the physicality of life on this planet and in our own bodies. Whether ready or not, it’s coming…
Uranus destabilizes the foundations of anything that is stuck in the past and resists a progressive future. This energetic shift will elicit great surface changes and major disruptions to our regular routines, habits, and lifestyle, that has up until now provided us with material and emotional stability, security and nurture.
Alongside further climate and Earth changes we can expect dramatic fluctuations in the Schumann resonance – with our body’s frequency attempting to adapt to sharp increases in the earth’s electromagnetic resonance. Paralleling the internal discomfort and symptoms that accompany this experience, our security will feel in constant jeopardy, especially over that which we most value. From the basic comforts and stability of a house, home, relationship, and the food on our plate, the energetic combination of Uranus in Taurus together with the mighty stellium in Capricorn, will be responsible for reorganizing, restructuring and redistributing all that we have ever taken for granted on a daily material basis.
Learning from the historical past
If you find any, or all of what I have discussed so far, hard to believe, I encourage you to do your own research. Once again astrology can provide answers, as the movements of planets and aspects are infinitely cyclical. For instance the last time Uranus entered Taurus was 84 years ago, so we can check historical archives to figure out the affects that this transit had on the world back then. Most of us will not remember these times, but our grandparents and great grand parents will recall that this period was a fundamentally challenging time in their life.
On June 6th 1934, Uranus entered Taurus and remained there until October 9th , before backtracking into Aries for 5 months, and then re-entered Taurus on March 27th 1935, until August 7th 1941.
During this time span WWII commenced on September 1st 1939. These were the years immediately after the Wall Street Crash of 1929, which coincided with the Great Depression, following up with the austerity of war. There was one final move back into Taurus from October 4th 1941, ending on May 15th 1942. During the later period of Uranus in Taurus, ration coupons replaced money, while the value of currency and human life were completely destabilized. There is a strong probability that we are on track to experiencing a modernized version pertaining to such themes.
It is interesting to note that like the 1930’s transit, we saw the world economy collapse with “The Great Recession” back in December 2007, which lasted until June 2009; again a few years prior to Uranus’s move into Taurus. Warring between nations as well as internal conflicts have plagued mankind since the dawning of civilization, and today nothing much has changed in this arena, except that we have weapons of mass destruction and military forces in the hands of unpredictable, and egomaniacal leaders, making the threat of WWIII very possible.
Backtracking to last year, North Korea first threatened US with a nuclear attack late July 2017 (during eclipse season) after testing and increasing its arsenal. Towards the end of the year more angst developed over a potential electromagnetic pulse attack. Then out of the blue this April 2018, came a surprise declaration for the suspension of its nuclear and missile tests. Such a sudden, big turnaround speaks of the unpredictable nature of Uranus, hovering now over the last critical degrees of Aries (the fire sign representative of the warrior and pioneer). As does the current tensions between USA and Russia over Syria, which also escalated this April, together with the rouse made over Russia’s cyber attacks, and Britain’s threat of a global cyber war for any further hacking of infrastructures.
Regarding major earth shifts, back in the mid 1930’s seismic activity increased and heightened when Uranus first moved into Taurus, and especially during the last 3 years of the 7 year transit. In particular 1938 recorded 22 events reaching 7.0+. Topping the list was a huge quake which struck the Banda Sea, and at a magnitude of 8.5 this was one of the largest earthquakes of all time. Following on from this, 1939 escalated into being one of the deadliest years for earthquakes with over 60,000 recorded deaths, largely resulting from two major events in Chile and Turkey.
Ground breaking inventions and discoveries from 1934 – 41
includes the magnetic tape recorder, radar, nylon, Teflon, the photocopier, jet engine, LSD, the helicopter, electron microscope, orgone accumulator, color television, the first computer controlled by software, neutronic reactor, aerosol spray, canned beer and freeze dried coffee.
In the final Uranus retrograde period in Taurus, the first electronic digital computer was built, as was the turboprop engine.
Implementation of advanced technology and a new monetary system
Major technological advances fast accrued the past decade, but now comes the crunch time when all the new science will be finally applied widespread, potentially infiltrating the boundaries of organic life. We have already contended with the radical changes brought about via the introduction of the internet and the global worldwide web, plus generations of computers, robotics, cloning, genetically modified organisms, geoengineering, nano tech, 3d printing, smart phones, experimental crypto currencies, and virtual reality.
Like everything there will be the good, the bad and the plain ugly when it comes to the consequences of implementing any type of advanced technology. New innovations that have a direct application to our physical bodies, other life forms, and to earth herself, will not only entail a radical make over on the surface, but also a cellular restructuring relating to fertility, procreation and reproduction. We can expect to see a radical reassembly of all our infrastructures, and manufacturing industries adopting new installations to increase production and yields, relying more and more on robotics, nano tech and their precursors.
Imagine 7 years from now a world that has undergone an extreme makeover, plus the very design of nature further intercepted by technology altering it from its original God given state. Besides all these radical physical changes, we will see a complete overhaul of our monetary system, alongside the worldwide redistribution of power. Paper currency is already being faded out, with the predominant use now of online credit lines and ‘apps’ for managing all our banking transactions.
During my most recent trip to UK I witnessed many closures of banks and their ATM’s in the smaller townships, leaving the public with very little choice other than to bank online, and use credit cards. Cashiers anticipate debit/credit payment, while bitcoin and the likes are accepted more and more by small and large businesses. All of this adds up to a significant decrease in cash sales the past few years. Yet even credit cards, and schemes such as mortgages, pensions and taxation could all disappear in favor of an entirely new system bound by a crypto currency.
So how will we approach these upcoming changes, do we even have a choice of how to respond to such drastic measures for the progression of humanity? Many of us may revel, cheer and clap as we watch with glee the old patriarchal system with its banks, governments and industries all fall at our feet. But have we really considered the implications of that which will take its place?
The futuristic vision of life on earth (Uranus)
I have for seen in the near future a split among the people of the western world – those driven by a futuristic vision of our human existence, enabling the merger of man and machine, versus those who return to the land to honor earth and her natural laws, thereby upholding holistic traditions.
Uranus is indeed the liberator and he ignites the spark of any revolution. Yet in spite of this desire to break free of our past restrictions (of the old value system and outdated technology), in this futuristic vision there will be no civilian freedom or privacy. That has already been taken care of- carefully planned and orchestrated under the guise of protecting the public against terrorism. Micro chips containing our personal data, have been installed in our credit cards, phones, plus passports which have the bonus of biometric authentication. Social media sites, search engines and the “Global Positioning System” (GPS) all have algorithms to track our every movement and/or expenditure- all of which could venture into darker more sinister territory.
Seven years from now it is not such a far stretch of the imagination to envision everything and everyone will be monitored by a super AI. And no doubt it will become mandatory to have our body chipped, just like we’ve been doing to our pets to ascertain their identity and define these living creatures as our property. Instead of carrying wallets with credit cards, licenses, and passports to identify us, in the near future all personal data will most likely be transferred to our nano chip implant. It is of course hard to predict the timing for such a giant scheme to be implemented world wide, and yet we are already on route, so now it is just a matter of time, cost, and labor.
I would encourage everyone again to do their own research. Open your eyes, read between the lines, look for tell tale insignia on all the products that install the new innovations. The conspiracy theorists nightmare of a takeover staged by a central one world government gains momentum each time new tech is implemented for monitoring, surveillance and personal identification. And with Uranus transiting Taurus at the threshold of “The Age of Aquarius” there may well emerge the front of an egalitarian movement, in which all of these technological advances promote a lifestyle supposedly more abundant, comfortable, convenient, beautiful even; so beloved of the Taurean nature. And the public so easily manipulated and brain washed by the media, together with the resistance to manual labor and thinking for themselves, has already contributed to the rise of such a ‘new world order’ (a supremacy rooted in a subterranean dictatorship by the super elite under the guise of socialism).
And if all this becomes too uncomfortable for us to bear, then there could arise a mass uprising, to fight for, and take back the control of our privacy, our sovereign rights, and usher in the peoples revolution. Uranus in Taurus symbolized by the bull would support this kind of revolt in a very physical, territorial manner. The term ‘bull headed ‘ or to act ‘like a bull in a china shop,’ describes that forceful energy that literally wipes out everything in its vicinity. Therein all that is fragile and delicate is destroyed through sheer might and clumsiness, fueled by rage and stubbornness. In war this happens time and time again. The full charge of an attack wipes out all life in the vicinity, and that which is destroyed or broken can never be replaced, or repaired. Human life is fragile no matter how invincible we think we are, and the costs of any war is paid with the price of human life, leaving in its wake massive debt for those who manage to survive.
Earth based self sufficiency (Taurus)
Metaphorically and literally this year marks the beginning of the great divide. Between those who detach from earth and the physicality of their bodies to live in a matrix specially designed for them in a cyber space reality, versus those who are adamant to preserve life as we have always known it; living and laboring alongside nature towards their own, or a communities self sufficiency. This ability to sustain ones self is the quality most associated with Taurus, since as ruler of the second house in astrology the bull presides over our personal resources, and our skill set, which combined generates our means for self sufficiency.
While the majority focus on the Uranian vision of the future, with its benefits of the new technological implementation, and freedom from past restrictions, I would like to counteract this with the potent security offered from the Taurean energy fueled by the feminine planet Venus. Her Goddess energy is earth herself and the fertile soil, and representative of “the divine feminine.”
So let’s look at the alternate progression of my prediction. This I envision as a grass movement returning to an earth based life, utilizing the ancient technology of crystal intelligence, sacred geometry, astrology, bio dynamic farming, and clean energy, all of which abides to natural law. Taking this stance realigns our future survival with nature, on what will be left of our organic planet.
The people who will uphold earth based living, whether they realize it yet or not, have already primed themselves energetically and spiritually for this, with a heightening and quickening of awareness and sensitivity having occurred over the past decade. In order to remain fundamentally attached to this earth and to their organic bodies, with their natural cycles intact, they will need to start planning ahead and design a future that will secure their connection to mother earth. Now more than ever there is due cause to protect nature and our own bodies from the invasion and re-orchestration of the divine matrix of life.
Financial stability and wealth versus quality of life
On the matter of finance, equity, investments and the value of worldly possessions I feel rather hesitant to give advice as I am rather unqualified to discuss such matters of how best to protect assets, or increase them as we make the transfer out of the cash monetary system. I’m sure there are professionals that can help with these matters, but before you expend all your time and energy worrying about this, I beg you to consider the greater transition at hand. It would be a mistake to spend all this valuable preparation time simply protecting your assets and securing your wealth, without giving any consideration to your upcoming quality of life, your right for choice, and the introduction of tech that alters your human biology and experience.
Even with credit lines all accounted for now online, there have already been terrible incidents of hacking and identity theft. It is truly a huge step to trust in a currency one can’t see, touch or truly handle, only in a cache stored on an external hard drive. And even if it is protected by ‘block chain’ there is still this tremendous leap of faith to believe in something so very abstract, and for a fiscal security we must absolutely depend upon. And what if suddenly and unexpectedly electric power grids, satellites, internet and wireless connection were wiped out, even temporarily? I can just imagine the terrible mayhem that would ensue from that. It would only take one major electromagnetic surge, like a major solar storm or from an EMP attack to short circuit all this kind of technology.
Comply or rebel?
Uranus wakes us up in sudden and unpredictable manner. Will you comply with what is mandated for a so called progressive society, or will you stage a revolt; be it passive, or aggressive? By passive I mean taking a stand and pursuing a holistic lifestyle and therein not adhering to the new ways. And by aggressive I obviously mean doing whatever it takes to protect life and the way of living we cherish, by having the courage to fight for choice instead of the mandatory. I fear we will endlessly switch sides, compromising one thing for another until we have lost the very substance of life that actually made being here worth living for- the natural beauty, body and soul love, sensuality, peace and happiness. All of these things are worth fighting for.
I think it to be a huge mistake to weather this upcoming extreme time of transition, blind and deaf to the consequences of all or any of this, to then suddenly wake up in 2026 to find that everything that we once valued has gone and been replaced. Perhaps we will look back and feel that life without credit cards, banks, taxation has been liberating, but there is much more at stake than just this financial overhaul. Time is running out and we must do what feels right for each of us individually, but also with the knowledge that whatever drastic measures are taken now will yield the greatest affects on the future generations.
Is there a middle ground?
The energetic influence of the planet Uranus arrives suddenly, often explosively with a shock and awe impact. Our planetary liberator constantly switches, and changes things at lightning speed; this energy doesn’t flow, but moves erratically and avoids getting stuck at all cost. As the planetary ruler of Aquarius his signature energy births the rebel with, or without a cause; but is best channeled towards any altruistic reform, since Uranus is our planetary representative of the higher conscious.
Meantime the fixed earth sign of Taurus the bull, is the most immovable of all the signs in the zodiac. His complacency may breed compliance, and yet when confronted with anything that threatens his stable and secure existence the horned bull may charge at the opposition in protection of his ‘happy place’. This sign has the greatest resistance to change, and often its his extreme stubborness that proves to be his most infallible defense!
So one can conclude then that the dynamic of this transit will create more of a stand off, or revolt than any compromise or easy energetic merger. Eventually whatever comes to pass, and moving forward; whether we fought back or not, we will all need to make our peace with our own circumstance, as well as the state of the world, and the design implemented for the future of society.
The one compromise in the Uranus/ Taurus astrological dynamic
Persons who have a predominantly Uranian signature to their natal chart exhibit intellectual brilliance, yet they provide very little grounded stability for themselves and others around them, constantly coming up with one new bright idea after another, and moving erratically from one thing to the next, inconsistent, rather aloof, and emotionally detached. On the other hand a very Taurean personality exudes ample stability; always so conscious about their comfort, pleasure and security, making it so very hard for them to uproot let alone change quickly or spontaneously. By being so very conservative, overly indulgent and concentrating ones efforts on building such density in the physical realm, there is little growth or movement towards anything other than what can manifest in the material realm.
Taurus is the most peaceful sign of the zodiac. Just look at a herd of cows chewing happily, nonchalantly on the grass in a green meadow. Their large cumbersome bodies may look rather intimidating, yet they are for the most part unassuming, gentle and passive creatures. This fixed sign stays put; grounded and secure in routine and with many attachments to things that generate pleasure, and a happy, stable existence. Taurean’s labor hard to accrue their material abundance, with a practical eye on the prize of being able to enjoy the flourishing affect, at which point the least amount of physical effort is needed for its maintenance.
And this is key, as this will be the place of compromise. For it is in this simple and basic ‘sweet spot’ where we always fall short. That being the convenience of the smallest amount of our physical effort is where we will cave in to our heart held belief in the knowing that many of the new implementations defy all that is natural and good. It is the self indulgent nature of Taurus to be seduced by pleasure, comfort, practicality and ease, and so any new technology wrapped up in this pretty package will appear very tempting for all of us.
All in all I don’t for see a way to easily marry the energy of Uranus and Taurus without major conflict, or without creating monsters, considering the type of new technology at hand and the political climate in which this transit commences.
The progressive use of advanced technology and natural evolution
One could argue that this futuristic existence is a natural progression, or evolution for our species, and even site that this too must have been in the original Creator’s plan, for it to even be happening at all. But how many of us truly desire this, or think it a healthy progression, and what if in the end we have no choice and it becomes mandatory to comply with living such an inorganic existence? I wonder too if there will be legalized penalization for the non-compliance of lets say, refusing to be chipped, or moving our finances and investments into the elusive vaults of cyber space.
There is of course the major concern that Earth with her abundant supply of fresh water, air and an atmosphere that all protects and sustains life on this planet is fast becoming too toxic for all living beings. If the world becomes too toxic to sustain life, then the living have no choice but to adapt in ground breaking ways to survive on this planet, as our genealogy sees to it that we cant withstand the poisoning of heavy metals, radiation and chemicals. It will mean the extinction of many species – from the plants, insects all the way up to the animal kingdom.
Perhaps those that wield the power above and beyond our governing authorities are one step ahead for this reason, and yet I still question their true motives, as playing God in this way of rearranging divine design makes them seemingly more powerful than the omnipotent creator itself! I therefore continue to question now the path of our human evolution.
I debate whether we can truly call it progress when instead of cleaning up our toxic messes, we change our human, animal, plant design in order to withstand and live within the devastation of our own man made toxicity. Do we even have a choice at this point? Have all the chemical out puts and waste from a century of human consumption that now supports our fast convenient lifestyles, already put us over the brink of no return when it comes to living on a clean planet? Does Earth truly have the power to restore and regenerate herself back to pristine form, with out our help?
I leave you with these questions as I don’t have the answers, and I feel this is the real quest for the true egalitarian age, that will need to birth beyond the threshold of the Age of Aquarius. Now at the very threshold we must face the fact that once we destroy the divine imprints of our organic world there is no going back. Evolution will take a new course and who’s to say if this will be truly beneficial. For now the drastic change commences with the upcoming financial, and next generation technological revolution, alongside significant earth changes, but the rest is fast coming, mark my words!
Predictions for new innovations to beautify, heal and increase production
The Uranus transit through Taurus will further the innovations of a reconstructive or regenerative nature and make them more accessible. Hopefully the more advanced technology for cellular regeneration will be used benevolently. This may be especially applied to parts of the face, neck and throat, associated with Taurus; namely the tongue, jaw, gums, internal throat, vocal cords, and thyroid. Plus additional new innovations for beautification especially of the lips, nose, and cheeks.
On a side note we can also anticipate a sharp rise in thyroid conditions over this time period, due to even more external stresses from the upcoming destabilizing factors, and the ever increasing toxicity of the natural environment. I hope scientists and holistic practitioners will work hard on this one, since conditions of the thyroid are most debilitating and deeply affect ones quality of life.
Alongside the development of technology used to adulterate nature I envision that their will be a growth in technology that assists the regeneration of natural environments, for the fertility of the soil, as well as in agriculture, farming and food production. After all Uranus is the planet that represents our higher consciousness and so this is very helpful if we really want to do the right thing by all.
As previously discussed there is ample technology already implemented, with giant corporations such a Monsanto already using it in malefic ways; given their game plan to harness all life forms under their genetic ownership licensing scheme. Let’s hope that there will be an alternative worldwide movement to counteract Monsanto’s total monopoly of our food source and the modern farming industry, already set on a course to take over and control the world’s food production, by offering poor quality, adulterated ‘frankinfoods’.
During the next 7 years it is likely that advances in ‘resonant frequency devices’ used for healing the body and destroying pathogens, will be explored and implemented further and enter the main stream, with the Rife machine and its equivalents. Royal Raymond Rife the inventor of this technology made all his most significant discoveries in the mid 1930’s when Uranus was last in Taurus, which is why this kind of frequency healing could be revived and taken to the next level in spite of the American Medical Association’s past dismissal of such healing methods. That sci- fi depiction of entering a special pod programmable to heal specific body parts, or ailments could soon become a reality if this and other advanced technologies such as laser are combined.
Also during the 1930’s “orgone” was discovered by Wilhem Reich. He designed special “orgone accumulators,” collecting and storing orgone energy from the environment, which were used for improvement of general health, and even for weather control. Reich stated that deficits or constrictions in bodily orgone were at the root of many diseases. Eventually the FDA shut him down, destroyed all orgone related materials at his Institute and locked him up in prison after he violated an injunction.
The successor of the “orgone accumulator” is the manmade material “orgonite”. This simple technology, was derived and inspired from Reich’s work and improved on by Don Croft, which transmutes (purifies) DOR energy into POR. Certain electromagnetic frequencies, micro-waves, diseases, chemtrails, destructive behavior are all examples of negative orgone energy (DOR) at work. Without DOR these things cannot function, or even exist.
Since 2002, this technology has been proven by many enterprising individuals and achieved feats that would have been labeled as miracles in the past; such as purifying polluted water, breaking droughts, and eliminating chemtrails across vast areas. Organite orgone generators have also proven to significantly increase plant growth and yields, while organite made onto pyramidal forms used in the home create a cleansing effect, and are especially efficient at combating the EMF and radiation generated by our high tech devices. Hopefully during this transit technology such as orgonite, will make it into the mainstream as we battle with more negative effects of geoengineering, stress and toxicity related diseases, and further increases in EMF’s and radiation.
Could aliens visit Earth?
If there is extra terrestrial life out there, which is highly probably given the magnitude of the cosmos, then these next 7 years would be an auspicious time for ET’s to make a visitation. I jest you not, since Uranus is the most ‘out there,’ extraterrestrial and futuristic planet energetically speaking, while Taurus ruled by Venus is our representative for our material, physical earth reality.
Of course it comes as no surprise that I can’t find any evidence to support an alien visitation the previous time Uranus was in Taurus! And yet the idea of alien life does appear to have been swimming around in the collective consciousness back then, evident in cartoons of aliens and in the works of the early film industry. Even Winston Churchill wrote an 11 page article ‘Are We Alone in the Universe?’ where he muses about the search for extraterrestrial life. He penned the first draft in 1939 — when Europe was on the brink of war.
So even if there is little to conclude here; I do however for see a movement towards congruity between humankind and extraterrestrial life. Perhaps too more research and experimentation for the great endeavor of moving human civilization off this planet to live in outer space. Whether we are visited by aliens or not, there will definitely be a growing sense of the extra terrestrial here on our own home turf.
Bee symbolism and its relevance during this transit
Bees are often considered a symbol of the Goddess, or the Divine Feminine since each colony is ruled by a Queen. In particular, they are associated with the goddess Venus (planetary ruler of Taurus) because part of their labor is the indirect fertilization of flowers, all of which come under the dominion of Venus. As previously mentioned, Taurus is the sign representative of fertility, procreation and abundance. Without bees, many species of flowers would die out, and so the bee takes her position as handmaiden to the goddess. Bee’s collect pollen from flowers, and alfalfa and turn it into nourishing honey, which is the gold of bees. I’m certain the alchemy of bee and her medicine will find precedence in the next 7 years.
Over the past decade there’s been a drastic decrease in the bee population with some colonies disappearing altogether. This phenomena known as Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD) is contributed to a number of factors; higher toxicity in the environment, especially with the widespread us of pesticides, plus the greater production of soy and corn, and genetically modified organisms implemented in crop farming. With no bees crops will die and animals (and humans) could starve. Due to public outcry and horror of witnessing the strange and sudden termination of nature’s super pollinators, there has been a grass movement for bee keeping and the teachings of this practice.
Meantime in pursuit of a technological solution to the problem, a team of researchers from Harvard and Northeastern Universities are developing micro robotic bees that can pollinate flowers and do the job of real bees. With bee population at risk and no natural solutions in sight experts believe this could prove to be one of humanities best bets for the future of our food supply. There are still great challenges before robots can replace bees. One of the big ones is supplying power for a long enough flight. There are currently no artificial power sources small enough that can produce the necessary power. Once ready, a group of ‘RoboBees’ might also have other applications besides pollination, including environmental monitoring (especially in hazardous locations), search and rescue and even traffic monitoring. And on a darker note, in the defense realm similar developments are already on their way including the Israeli Spy-Butterfly and the Nano Hummingbird developed by AeroVironment.
What about love, sex, fertility and procreation?
Uranus is the ultimate planetary liberator; breaking all the rules, and seeking reformation through high ideals. In the near future non-conformist, or long distance relationships will be as lucrative and desirable as ones of a traditional nature. Since our technology already keeps us connected across vast distances I can imagine that the upcoming tech devices will have some kind of extra sensory capacity to make those that we love far away feel much closer than ever before. And if virtual reality simulations become mainstream, then access to sexual and sensual pleasure without a partner, or any physical contact entirely changes the rules of courtship and relationship. This will be the next level of emotional heart detachment to replace the enormous bank of porn available on the internet. Modern societies overexposure to hard core pornography has already lead us down a dark path, denying individuals the true power of sacred sexual union as well as increasing the growth rate of human trafficking for sexual exploitation.
The current trend for the ‘virtual’ replacing ‘real’ relationships through social media, online apps and dating sites is entirely reshaping our social interactions, behavior and expectations. Any further disconnect from the emotional seat of the heart, will entirely reform our human experience of love and friendship.
Many traditional relationship rules have already been broken. We’ve seen a dramatic increase in divorce, same sex marriage, older women with younger men, poly amorous relationships, 50 shades of gray; you name it, everything- even that which is most taboo has been tried and tested. Yet the end game is mostly the same. This expectation to eventually settle down with the one you love, care and support one another, often in a shared home and within a family unit. This is very true of the Taurean nature and it maybe that we simply wont desire this ‘happy ever after’ anymore, or it could feel too hard to make a nest during this period as Uranus shakes the earth beneath our feet. Perhaps we wake up one day to find that the people we most love and rely on suddenly are no longer at our side, or our finances change so drastically that we can no longer keep the homestead. The destabilizing affect on relationship will be further enhanced by more and more virtual ways to meet, date and have sex, making the thrill of not settling down and experimentation, or even just satisfying oneself, more appealing than sharing in ways couples have done for centuries past.
Needless to say all of this will affect our natural procreative process, and fertility. Since we are told that our ever growing world population will soon no longer be able to sustain itself, there is you could say an upside at least to this technology, because if the virtual reality has us hooked, then of course sexual intercourse can be set aside only for procreation, reducing the many conceptions resulting from ‘mishaps’. If this does all come to pass we would witness a significant decrease in the growth rate of human population, plus a reduction in sexually transmitted diseases. However a further increase of infertility should be expected, since all these EMF devices, alongside greater environmental toxicity, GMO’s, radiation, and increase in internal and external stressors, have already proven to have negatively affected fertility in both men and women. When it comes to creating life in a test tube, or its future advanced equivalent, then mankind will be challenged with the ethical dilemmas raised by the application of eugenics.
Venus’s symbol of the Rose and reevaluating the love of self and others
The beautiful fragrant rose is the flower associated with Venus- the Roman Goddess of love. In astrology the planet Venus rules our fundamental value system in terms of what we generally hold most dear and what is most desirable. Venusian energy softens the hard edges of reality with her feminine touch, sensuality, beauty, love, creativity, grace, charm and peace loving nature. It would be a true shame if we allow the radiance of her rose to dim, by artificially stimulating all our senses, rather than physically sensing the beauty of nature, or generating passion and love from our attraction to one another. Kissing, holding hands, sensual touch, cooking for one another, sleeping and living together, sharing even in the most simple of ways all provide us with emotional and physical nurture, warmth and stability. All of which greatly enhances our experience of joy and happiness. I wonder if the fake, artificial, chemically altered nature of the cornucopia on offer in the future will actually imitate the real thing so well, or prove even more attractive, that we lust after all this and no longer care for anything of an original nature?
How we perceive our current reality is defined from the inside out; not just through the accruing of our worldly goods and possessions and the mandates society places on us, but from our desire to love, our ability to recognize beauty, and the value of our own self. I wonder how many of us are truly ready for this total makeover of everything that we value. Would you really rather have cyber sex encounters than make love and touch a real human being? Do you prefer to feast on food that has been genetically and chemically altered, and can you trust a currency that you cannot handle or use without a digital device, or an implanted chip?
In the center of Venus’s rose are the petals representing our self worth from which love, harmony, creativity and joy unfold. Social media has already fundamentally changed our friendships and if virtual simulation replaces sensual body connections, making it more desirable to plug into a programmable machine than actually engage in the physical motions, one can only imagine the drastic changes in the perception of our self value. Up until now so much of our energy has been invested in attracting a partner through our visual looks, with fashions and industries dedicated to making us appear more physically desirable to one another. Even if this is a plus for those that previously found it hard to attract a mate, and it is a liberating factor for both men and women, this act of detachment from our heart, our emotions and senses dehumanizes us. It will also become very challenging for couples still bonding sensually in physical reality to compete with contrived versions of simulated physical perfection and bliss.
The geometric pattern formed from Venus’ cycle in relationship to the Earth, as seen from the Earth, is a five-petaled rose. Every eight years, when Venus shows the same face to the Earth, the pair ‘kiss’ and another petal is formed. These stunningly symmetrical patterns of the Venusian ‘dance’ actually form both a heart and a rose! Love, as the feeling language of the heart, is both the greatest unifier and inspiration behind all forms of creativity, and joy. No matter where we are headed in the future, let us not forget this.
What will happen to the Divine Feminine Movement?
The planet Venus, together with our luminary the Moon represents the “feminine principle”, or “yin” energy in astrology. Uranus the most rebellious and unconventional planet moving into Taurus ruled by Venus, is on course to further awakening and shaking up the feminine principle during this 7 year transit.
The current feminist movement that was termed “the divine feminine” rose up and gained momentum over the past decade while Uranus was in Aries, especially around the time of his conjunction with asteroid Eris – representative of the female warrior and shadow Goddess. The online growth of a ‘global sisterhood’ community is very much a signifier for the Age of Aquarius, with resurrection of the energy of the Goddess, and her role being redefined for the current and upcoming generations, as the patriarchy and the old establishment topple and give way to the rise of the new. Currently it is the divine feminine movement that spear heads the collectives spiritual awakening, alongside promoting human rights, and a return to prioritizing the loving support of community. The sisterhood promotes non competitive relationships and those of mutual cooperation. This way of being for all relationships has been termed “interdependence” taking us beyond and above the old ways of co dependency.
During the Uranus transit in Taurus, both Saturn and Jupiter’s upcoming transit of Aquarius beginning together in Dec. 2020 followed by Pluto in 2024 will definitely see some favorable planetary energy for more progression and liberation, and the further rise of the feminine. The US natal Moon’s placement in Aquarius has been attributed to one of the reasons why American women are so unconventional and have greater liberties, equality and civil rights than many other of the world’s nations. It is very possible during this period that American women will lead the way as the initiators, innovators and rebels for taking this movement to the next level.
Who will personally be most affected by this transit?
To predict this accurately one must consult the natal chart to discover how much and to what extent each individual will be affected. Those with Sun, Moon or ASC in Taurus will at some point in the next 7 years (dependent on the degree) experience the Uranus destabilizing factor through some kind of upheaval, or radical change, so one must look to the natal chart for a thorough analysis. Taurus rules the 2nd house of money, love, skill set and physical body appearance.
Taurean’s need only consult their horned zodiac neighbor Aries as to the type of upheavals they experienced over the last 7 years, to then realize that this is going to be a powerful awakening time, with a lot of shake ups; especially if one acts like the bull, stubbornly refusing to adapt, or release old patterns and attachments. It is also viable that the stubbornness and fixed nature of Taurus could be humanity’s saving grace, since this may well be the one stance that protects us from accepting or complying with reformation that leads to dire consequences for mankind and this planet.
Sun in Taurus= sudden awakening, or a total life makeover, uprooting and rerooting, fluctuating vitality, drastic change in personal resources, creativity and abundance. New opportunities, risk taking and reinventing the familiar.
Moon in Taurus= radical and sudden changes affecting both physical and emotional security and stability; or changes in habits and routines, in the home base and the family unit. New means for attracting abundance, creativity, pleasure and comfort
ASC in Taurus = drastic change in identity, or physical appearance, life purpose, personal skills and resources pertaining to the unconventional and innovative. Expect the unexpected from yourself, in others and in your surroundings
For more specifics interpret the house placement of your Sun or Moon
If your luminaries or ASC are in Leo or Aquarius, you may find yourself at some point of this transit facing a sudden crisis arising between your heart’s desire and the rationality or ideals of your mind. Any life choice made, or ignored at this intersection will wield great consequences especially for Aquarians, as this for you is the last call for change and reform in whatever arena this shows up.
If your natal luminaries or ASC are in Scorpio then at some point in the next 7 years an opposition will present itself, as a great conflict between the material/superficial versus the deep and meaningful aspects of your life. Between personal resources versus those that are shared, and that which is flourishing in life versus that which has peaked. It will demand a radical solution to create balance between these polarities and discern that which must be allowed to die. It is through this ‘death’ and the biggest transformation ahead that you will thrive once more and produce greater yields for the future.
Those who have luminaries or ASC in Virgo or Capricorn, this energy for reformation will provide a supportive undercurrent for radical change, especially for Virgo. Capricorns still have to contend with Saturn, Pluto and Jupiter transiting their sign, which means your soul and all aspects of your life have been under major reconstruction possibly for some time now, and this theme continues.
The most extreme affects of this transit will manifest as imposed disruptions that are out of our control forcing us to suddenly adapt, and change our lifestyle. It is possible that these changes will have a great impact on our physical bodies. Many people will have to uproot and reroot whether they like it or not. We can expect sudden loss or gains in our fiscal situation, and possessions. Many of us may suddenly find our skill set is redundant and so we will need to learn new ones. The stability of our house and home and the relationships that sustain them may also go through extreme flux. Many people may find that they will be working more and more from home than commuting to an office. Reformations of old authorities and governing structures will affect everyone on earth, as will new high tech applications. The changes in infrastructures that will most affect us all will be in banking, investments, public utilities, farming, food industry, fertility clinics, beauty industry, architecture, building, land ownership and what constitutes a home.
The path of least resistance and a lifestyle of convenience will feel most desirable during this very unstable time, and yet taking this stance will lead to the death of all that we have most valued. Some people will stubbornly fight for that which they most value, while the majority will comply just to make life seem easier, more simple and peaceful.
How to prepare and weather this transit
If you remain unconcerned about the introduction of super AI’s, robotics, cyber simulations, crypto currency, and the eventual merger of man and machine then you are all set for the upcoming revolutionary structuring of the ‘new world order’. If on the other hand this radical change from an organic to an artificial existence, and a total overhaul of daily life abhors you, then it is not too late to prepare yourself.
Firstly and foremost find your spot on this earth- a place that can support the kind of growth that you seek. In fact no matter on which side you are most invested – earth or technology, I sincerely advise each individual to find their ‘power spot’ and do anything it will take to reorganize your life, even if that means moving mountains to get yourself settled there, so that you at least feel your core supported during the stress of transition. This place that is most sacred to you could be a specific physical location, or the family homestead, a marriage, friendship; even a job or position that aligns with your heart.
If you are wishing to continue to pursue an earth- based existence, find a natural environment with a generous water supply and good soil; clean and fertile enough to grow food to sustain oneself. Continue to nourish yourself with whole foods and make remedies from herbs for healing, detoxing and for vitality. Besides growing your own food, also grow loving, dependable relationships in real time, rather than in the cyber space of social media. Talk, walk, work, relax and eat together and if you have a partner partake in the sensual act of love making.
Dedicate more time to your family, friends and community and come together to protect your natural environment. Pick up litter, recycle and figure out practical, simple and ingenious ways to leave less of an imprint on this earth. Create a garden, store seeds, bee keep and learn husbandry. If you have children pass on your knowledge of the natural world. Children are experiential learners, and so organizing fun but educational nature walks will greatly impact their vitality and their future life direction. Teach them some traditional skills such as cooking, sewing, gardening, plant identification and foraging.
All of these activities see to it that the human species remains connected to the land, with our happiness and health sustained by the earth and her bounties.
Simple ways to realign with Earth’s natural cycles:
• Leave your confines on a daily basis and commune with nature.
• Bathe in the sunlight, in ocean and rivers
• Watch the moon and experience her cycles,
• Learn the position of stars and the movements of planets.
• Intuit Earth’s magic that was once second nature to our ancestors.
• Admire her beauty, give thanks and pray for her protection.
Make your move to your power spot between October 2018 and April 2019
Uranus in retrograde motion backtracks into Aries from Nov. 6th – Mar, 6th 2019 making this a critical period for choosing your course for progressive action.
Over the course of these months there is much support from above for restructuring, including Jupiter in Sagittarius (eliciting greater fortune through travel and truth seeking), alongside Uranus stationing retrograde and back tracking into Aries, and Chiron revisiting last degrees of Pisces.
For the first few years any dramatic steps taken during this window of opportunity may feel at first to be a rather drastic adjustment, with much hard work and labor ahead, yet this is what it will take to reconstruct your world according to your own standards and align with your dreams, rather than letting the rest of the world sway you off course, or let governing bodies dictate a future for you.

The Clarity of your future vision and dealing with shadow complexes
Your future path will more than ever before rely on your envisioning. Without this clarity you will not be able to distinguish your power spot – that special heart place that will support your growth and give you security during the destabilizing factors upon us. And to be very clear -if you choose not to define you future now it will be defined for you moving ahead. So get to it and make this future vision your most pressing act of power. List your practical and most heartfelt priorities and go from there…
Another important step in this process of envisioning is to become ever more self aware, as well as more alert to your surroundings. Whenever faced with doubt, or fear consider the shadow aspects of the Taurean nature. Take into consideration that an overly materialistic lifestyle with many attachments breeds greed, lust, possessiveness, and jealousy, all rooted in an underlying fear of loss. Material loss is exceptionally challenging for Taurus, since this fixed earth sign desires, hoards and preserves. And when the energy for preservation overpowers all else then the shadow aspect turns into procrastination, stubbornness, and laziness.
Our human desire for all kinds of creature comforts plus our need for stability generates the habitual behavior that can literally over ride the spontaneity of each new day. Not only can habits have us stuck in the same old groove, but some bad habits can develop into full blown addictions. Especially if an individual is compulsive, lacks self control, has a self -esteem problem and lives disconnected from divine source. For example wanting or needing a lot of sex, can lead to promiscuity and then a sex addiction. Habitual shopping for groceries may sustain our survival, but overspending on indulgences generates the mentality of a shopaholic. Compulsive behavior and high anxiety may lead to hoarding, with the accumulated objects as stand-ins for love, affection or what’s missing in that person’s life. Taurus the bull has an insatiable appetite, so whether it be food, love, sex, or money there is always the capacity to generate excess. Take a deep look inside of yourself and a good look around and see how much of this shadow nature is playing out in your life.
The desire for an easy, pain- free life is everyone’s wish, and yet any peace and happiness gained in this lifetime is counteracted with the experience of drama, loss, tragedy and suffering. Non of us are exempt on this earth place, yet inside all of us is the will to avoid pain on all accounts and stick to the familiar instead of embracing change. These are the passive strategies adopted by Taurus to avoid any kind of physical discomfort. Also living within the constricts of a very conservative, rigid life plan may have its advantages as far as gaining security and stability, yet adopting a more liberal attitude can and will open doors to opportunities for material gain perhaps never anticipated before.
In astrology the energy that best describes the power of Uranus is akin to an electric shock; suddenly and painfully jolting us out of our apathy. As destructive as his power may be, there is always the potential for total regeneration just like the wildfires ignited by a lightning strike regenerate the forest floor. So wherever one is physically, energetically and karmically stuck; over indulging and generating excess or operating from a fear of loss or lack of self esteem, then this will become the arena that is most susceptible for attracting that Uranian energy for reformation. Anything that stands in the way of our soul and spirit growth is at threat of being wiped out and obliterated at any given time, especially if we flat out refuse to change, or attempt to postpone the inevitable.
In astrology Uranus is the higher octave of Mercury- the planet of communication, rationality and reason here at ground level. This outer planet then raises the bar and assists us in awakening to our higher selves by prompting us to elevate our consciousness and refine our ways. So while you are envisioning your future and designing a plan I sense it best to leave some space within the defining process for unexpected opportunities, spontaneous events, and those sudden awakenings so as to remain open to the possibility of benevolent change.
Wishing you all a blessed journey of release and reorganization during this powerful transit.
