Uranus in Taurus – True 2018 Predictions
Uranus in Taurus has been the big news headline in astrology in 2018. The planet which triggers revolution, radical change, new freedom and independence has moved into Taurus, the sign of the bull, with all its focus on bull markets and gold bullion. If you have early Taurus factors at 0, 1, 2 degrees you will have been personally zapped since May 2018 when this planet changed signs. Even if you just have a Taurus chart signature (factors in the sign of the bull at any degree at all) you will have felt the impact of this planet moving into your Second House of finance, values, business, houses, apartments, possessions, charity, taxation and economics.
It’s really been like having a new tenant in your home. A dramatic new arrival you have never hosted before. Classic signs of the new Uranus in Taurus weather? The need to make decisions about money, business or property based on your values. What you will and will not sell your soul for. Who or what you consider to be priceless. Standing firm on ‘price’ (whatever or whomever is precious to you) is a Taurean thing to do. Uranus in Taurus is challenging that.
It’s rather like being on the same old financial journey your entire life then finding out someone or something surprising – even downright shocking – wants to take over the trip. You’ll have felt this first, the earlier your Taurus factors fall in that sign. People with Taurus factors from 3-29 degrees will experience the strange new ride later on, beyond 2019. It’s a slow cycle.
Global Financial Crisis 2 Predictions
On 15th April 2018 you read this prediction:
“Global Financial Crisis 2. Lightning Strike! It Begins with the FTSE in May 2018
The FTSE was ‘born’ with Psyche at 0 Capricorn, the sign which rules big business and government. She also has Pluto at 1 Scorpio. As soon as Uranus moves to Taurus for the first time in most people’s lives, he will trine Psyche and oppose Pluto. That is a massive moment for the FTSE. In fact it’s historic. It’s confronting and it will change the balance of power for some time to come, as Uranus will return to this position after the initial May 2018 hit.”
You’d be expecting headlines about the FTSE 100 or the pound and that is exactly what happened. The Independent ran with a story about a May 2018 crash-out for Britain’s currency.
On 21st May 2018, the Financial Times ran this front page:
Not Doom and Gloom. Radical New Beginnings!
What you also read in that old April prediction was an astrological story about revolution. Not doom and gloom. What we’re seeing, with Uranus in Taurus, are extreme rides. In fact, this Guardian story from May 2018, around a month after the April prediction (below) says it all. Low U.K. inflation against a ‘down’ pound. You have to make of that, whatever you can.
It’s like the lowest recorded unemployment figures in the U.S.A. (since the 1960’s) also showing up in the key month of May 2018. Not doom and gloom. Radical new beginnings. Against the backdrop of this astrology, you have to invent each new day. Are you downsizing? Ditching shopping? Putting integrity before your salary? That’s Uranus in Taurus weather.
Here’s what you read back in April, one month before Uranus changed signs to Taurus the Bull – now, over to you!
“On Monday 14th, Tuesday 15th, Wednesday 16th May the world will enter Global Financial Crisis 2. The difference this time is – if you invent, innovate and co-create a radically different new business, taxation and trade world with like-minded people – you will gain in 2018, 2019, 2020 and beyond.
Tuesday 15th May 2018 New Moon 24 Taurus. Mercury at 3 Taurus. Uranus enters Taurus at 3.16pm.
This begins the cycle, the way that one electrical storm can begin a whole season of unpredictable weather. We can allow for world time zone differences in the sleep/wake cycle, here, but in general from Japan to Europe, the world will be zapped.
