Wake UP, Earthlings & EmBODY Freedom! URANUS enters TAURUS (March 6, 2019 – Apr 26, 2026!)

3 Mar

Dear Astro Friends,


Look what the PISCES New Moon on MARCH 6 (see chart below) helps to deliver:

Just 7 1/2 hrs before the exact New Moon, URANUS, Archetype of the Awakener & Paradigm Shifter changes Zodiac signs, from ARIES where it’s been since 2011(!) into TAURUS!
Until Apr 26, 2026 (YES, for almost 7 years) that-IS!

(A first ‘teaser’ phase for URANUS on the cusp into TAURUS already happened last May 15 – Nov 6 when URANUS retreated back into ARIES over the Winter).

Quite a cathartic and catalytic shift, helping us to set FREE what’s been held in / back for long:

  • Get UN-stuck & UN-settled!
  • Get UN-attached from what has ‘owned you’!
  • Set yourself FREE from stagnation, inertia, conventions, comfort traps, persistent habits that might have turned into addictions even!
  • Get FREE from fixations, and resistance-to-change.
  • Be fresh and re-invent yourself!
  • Disrupt too slow-moving processes / holding back, and surprise yourself with experimentation!


URANUS in TAURUS can also feel like: Freedom from ownership.

Freedom from anything that has kept us hostage, by using up our Time, Energy, and Resources (CAP) – which all can be re-purposed much better and with more enjoyment (TAU).

  • Where have you enslaved yourself / let yourself be enslaved by something you own / that ‘owns’ and occupies you, your Time, your Energy / Money / Resources?
  • What’s ready to be freed-up now?

EmBODY Freedom!


On a shared experience with Humanity and all sentient Beings,

TAURUS is the Zodiac energy relating to Mother Earth and her Beauty and Bounty, and with TAURUS we appreciate our precious human EmBodyment: “Earth My Body!”

WAKE UP, Earthling!

Earth is our Mother.

The Earth doesn’t belong to us. We belong to the Earth.


Wake-up calls is what URANUS is famous for.

Waking UP from complacency, indulgence, and taking wayyy too much time (shadows of TAU) and into a new and acute Earth Awareness.

We really can’t wait another decade or more to get our act together as responsible stewards of the Earth (is also what SATURN, LILITH, and PLUTO in CAP say).

The Awakening to a New EARTH Consciousness, reflected through URANUS in TAU will affect Food (incl. more scientific evidence about how it affects our Body), Money / Value Exchange, and Economy / Ecology, and calls for liberating, innovative solutions in a volatile World.

  • Where do you stand in this?
  • What’s new and exciting in your relationship to Mother Nature?
  • What are your TAUREAN liberating paradigm shifts in action?
  • And how are you actually EmBODYing Freedom?


Those of you born with URANUS in SCO (Dec 1974 – Apr 1975, and Sept 1975 – Nov 1981) will have their URANUS Opposition in the years of URANUS in TAU!

An awakening / liberation in mid-life which can be a huge catalyst for radical Life Changes.

All of us (independent of age) esp. if we have SUN, MOON, AC, or Planets in TAURUS (or in LEO, SCO, AQ) are in for surprises too, and we’ll get a URANIAN ‘kick in the butt‘ to be liberated and reinvent ourselves esp. in the area of life related to the TAURUS House in our personal Birth Chart.


Let’s explore how this shows up for YOU, and in the World (symptoms are already manifesting) in our

This much for the short version of the URANUS into TAURUS post.


For the in-depth version, read ON:

To start with, here’s a sneak preview of the PISCES New Moon chart:



  • You can see that the URANUS shift happens on the TAU New Moon day (URANUS at 0°00′ TAU)! It’ll have moved over the ‘Settling Point’.


  • The New MOON in mid-PI comes with NEPTUNE – seed for a new multi-D Consciousness….? ALL is inter-connected, and vibrational. Tuning into ease and flow… supporting new Freedom from all things sticky, stuck, and attached.


  • MERCURY, freshly retro (starting the day before, March 5, see blog post) at the very end of PI is super-close to CHIRON just freshly over in ARIES (since Feb 18 – blog post here) on the ‘Emergence Point’ / Spring Equinox Point.
    RE-connecting & being in flow while showing up  freshly & authentically is good Medicine.


  • SATURN in CAP (Dec 2017 – Dec 2020) almost links up this Spring with PLUTO – their exact conjunction will be on Jan 12, 2020. The Lunar South Node in CAP meets (in retro motion) PLUTO end of March and SATURN in June. Along the lines of the CAP New Moon PSE on Jan 5:
    Let the Old Empire Expire! What are the ‘Empires’ that you’ve bought into? 
    And: Don’t do things the hard way… URANUS the liberator in TAU will help – Freedom through Joy!
    The CAP concentration is balanced by the Lunar North Node in CAN: Find your way Home!


  • JUPITER now in the last part of SAG (double SAG, close to the Galactic Centre) is slowing down its journey / turning stationary to go retro on Apr 10 – Wisdom from within on the Path of the Heart… Sharing our Gifts generously makes us feel abundant.


  • So yeah, all in all quite a unique chart – primed for surprises and breakthroughs.


I call the AR – TAU cusp the ‘Settling Point’ in the Zodiac.
Usually, the fresh original ARIES start-up energy settles here, fresh shoots take roots, and we find our ground and comfort. 

It can appear rather un-settling with URANUS though…
Let’s move with the energy freely and creatively rather than resisting. TAU is the expert in this, that’s why URANUS isn’t ‘well placed’ in TAU. Well, actually: URANUS rocks the boat to shake up what’s too fixed.

When I googled Krishnamurti‘s quote (and book) Freedom from the Known (so URANIAN, in a spiritual and multi-dimensional sense) I found out he was born with TAU SUN and AQ Rising – ruled by URANUS. 
And yes, Freedom from the Known is also a big motto for URANUS in TAURUS.


Full Circle URANUS in TAURUS (every 84 years) –
3rd Industrial Revolution?


URANUS in its 84-year cycle hasn’t been in TAURUS since 1934 – 1942.
Depression of the World economy and World War II (with territorialism blended with fascism as triggers) – turbulent time for the Earth and the People for sure! PLUTO was in CANCER and LEO (entered at the onset of the war – destructive imperialism).

And before, 1851 – 1851 – era of the Gold Rush, agricultural revolution, following the invention of the mechanical harvester, and even more so consolidation of the industrial era.

That was also the decade when Moby Dick, Uncle Tom’s Cabin (owning it was made illegal in the Southern States!) and Darwin’s Origin of Species were published.

Chances are, URANUS in TAU will have a paradigm shifting effect on the economy – like: catalyze the spirit of the 3rd Industrial (or rather: post-Industrial / post-Capitalist) Revolution that’s not based on owning (TAU) but on sharing in a network (AQ, ruled by URANUS). Driven by Millennials who, other than their post-War parents don’t put much value on ownership of prestige objects like cars that need to be maintained while ‘plugging up’ the Planet in so many ways.
Access to networks (like car shares, co-working office spaces, and other co-ops) is where it’s at.
I.o.w., sharing and collaboration instead of owning is Freedom (URANUS).

The Sharing Economy in combination with the exponential digital revolution encourages for information to be freely given out – which disrupts traditional industries and equals the playing field (URANUS) – we all can ‘produce’ books and videos with minimal ‘start-up’ costs and zero marginal costs (doesn’t cost more to produce more).


Grounding the Electrical & Liberating Energy 


URANUS energy can be wired, excited, but also anxious, nervous, and not calm and present as TAU would recommend. I.o.w., we really, really need to GROUND all that electrical energy that’s been ‘downloaded’ even more so now.

URANUS in AR (since 2011 – actually started on the DAY of the shocking Fukushima catastrophe) has brought an acceleration of alarming shifts and wake-up calls, everything has been ‘speeding up’ – esp. through URANIAN technology which also led to lots of start-ups and entrepreneurial opportunities. Seemed like we had to be pro-active and assertive (AR, ruled by MARS) to ride this wave, otherwise life and constant newness rushed by (producing F.O.M.O. effects – and of course, there’s always more newness…) – has it been thrilling for you? Or rather stressful?

Huge contrasts happen however when we’re away from the ‘grid’, ‘simply’ in Nature or present with what IS, present as the Self (the big gift or AR).

What stood out under URANUS in ARIES (2011 – 2018/19) was the 7 (SEVEN!)-fold cardinal (dynamic) Square (a challenging yet creative conflict) from URANUS in AR to PLUTO in CAP, from 2012 to 2015.

Yeah, indeed, 2012 was just the beginning of massive changes:
Inner and outer unsustainable control structures have spontaneously / shockingly / liberatingly broken open. A Revolution – Evolution.
So many of us (incl. myself) were going through massive changes of old ways ‘dying’ yet being renovated and ‘upgraded’ for a new life that’s free from the past, and alive in the NOW!
A caterpillar – butterfly effect.


With URANUS in TAU taking the shifts from Spirit and Energy (fiery AR) into earthy Matter this sounds to me also like:
Building the New and Sustaining.
A New Earth. A New Embodiment. A New Relationship to Nature.

On the other hand, with URANUS in TAU we can also move into universal beyond global (TAU) consciousness – liberating in a spiritual sense (yet there’s another side to it too, driven by technology – see below).
The global consciousness through globalization took off under PLUTO in SAG (1995 – 2008), and now structures are established (PLUTO in CAP since). Those global military-industrial hierarchies and Plutocracies (meaning literally: the rulership / power of the wealthy) seem to be hard to change – like moving mountains (CAP).

Yet my vision is that these socio-economic structures will ‘organically’ change because the status quo (TAU) isn’t sustainable.
And WE the People become fed up (UR in TAU) enough and FREE to not buy into their values anymore, more excited to outgrow them, and build the NEW.



My hope is that URANUS in TAU in combination with PLUTO and SATURN in CAP (until end of 2020 / 2023) brings Freedom from consumer mentality which all these industries (agricultural  industry, information / entertainment industry, health / pharma industry, construction industry, education industry… you name it!) feed and feed off from.

Freedom from a modus of least resistance / most comfort (shadow of TAU: “Feed me and I’m happy.”), and towards more creativity / owning agency,  simplicity and quality consciousness (CAP) – less IS more.

In the worlds of food and money / economy (TAU domains), we’ll see the most obvious shifts – which have to do with a change in values and innovation.

Maybe traditional values go out of the window?

And, with SATURN and PLUTO in CAP until 2020 / 2023, the URANIAN ‘Zeitgeist’ brings Freedom from the old and stuffy world that keeps people ‘in their place’.
Yet older Earth values and traditions that are more liberating can be reinvented and modernized.
Those of us who value good natural food and resources will innovate and support solutions that make the world a garden again.

When it comes to money, we’ll probably see a push towards a cashless society.
Plus, new (yet unknown) forms of exchange and of placing value on goods and services can open up innovative ways of speeding up transactions, along with even more economic networks. This can bring a boost to the economy – as long as people have work and aren’t replaced by automation. Yet it makes us also even more dependent on the electronic grid.

More opportunities for innovative business ventures come with URANUS in TAU too. Everyone can be an entrepreneur and inventor: Come up with something ingenious that has / suggests value (make it desirable!) and put it on the market. Experiment online (low cost).
The whole thing can of course also create a chaotic ‘Gold Rush’ like energy in the world of business – well, already under way, esp. in real estate (very TAUREAN). Wall St. Bull on steroids?

When it comes to our bodies, I believe URANUS in TAU, together with CHIRON in AR (almost same period, 2018/19 – 2026/27), will bring revolutionary research and innovation in the healing field, and for our bodies, food, and nutrition.
E.g. epigenetics research; stem cell therapy as a major breakthrough that could become more broadly available (URANUS shows where what’s been ‘owned’ by the ‘elite’ can be accessed by humanity).


Shadows of URANUS in TAURUS

A huge shadow comes with the virtual (URANUS) reality (TAU) emphasis, and innovations pushing more and more into this arena (because it ‘sells’ / addicts people – online / gaming is more exciting than ‘3-D / 4-D reality’).
Many people ‘dwell’ (TAU) in their devices (UR), and spend less time in Nature, with ‘real people’, and perhaps even fully connected with their bodies (TAU). Compounded with the exponentially growing  overwhelm with information and choices this all leads to collective ADD. Advertisers rival for our attention and constantly interrupt the flow, or even the just focused reading of an article. Instant (URANUS) gratification (TAU) is rewarded and pursued.
So, ironically, the ingenious Genie in the device is wreaking havoc in the brain (stem!) of the ‘user’.
More scientific (URANUS) research about this phenomenon will come out, and more cures for such a pandemic need to be found….The not-so-news will probably shock those who were oblivious or ‘snoozing’ the wake-up calls under URANUS in AR – and realize how much the body (TAU) is getting ‘wired’ and electrified (UR).

Prevention / Astro Medicine suggestions:

  • Be ON the ground of Mother Earth and in Nature more often!
  • You’re FREE to break away / take breaks from the shackles of your handheld!
  • Don’t feed the energy of the Old Plutocratic CAPitalist Empire (PLUTO / SATURN / Lunar South Node in CAP), and feed your true needs (North Node in CAN) instead.


Well, and the ‘universal consciousness’ I talked about could also have expressions such as:
“Planet Earth isn’t sustainable anymore in the long run. We need to explore taking the Space Age (URANUS) into extraterrestrial settling (TAU) – ‘Freedom from the Earth'(!?).
I heard scientists talk pretty detached about this – and then there’s Elon Musk’s spectacular SpaceX project with the Mars mission focus…. (interestingly, E.M. was born with MARS retro next to his karmic North Node in scientific AQ which will be squared by URANUS the ruler of AQ in the next few years…).

A while ago, I saw (ironically on FB) a post by a friend re:
Terraforming Mars.

Weird stuff i.m.o. / common / uncommon sense –
Why playing Nature on a different planet, rather than regenerating Planet Earth?

Just an alert – more of these phenomena might show up and intended to be ‘sold’ to us now, with URANUS in TAU, along the lines:
“Here’s a great solution to the food & water crisis: Let’s bio engineer / geo engineer until the cows come home… 😉 “
“Here’s an ingenious idea to solve the issue of Life on Earth…: Life OFF Earth….!”


Ok, ok, back to our Home Planet, since foremost, that’s where it’s at:

Wake UP, Earthlings!

Earth is our Mother.
A Renaissance of Earth Consciousness.


TAURUS is the Zodiac energy relating to Mother Earth and her Beauty and Bounty, and where we appreciate our precious human embodiment:
Earth my Body!
If you haven’t heard this song and seen this ever so moving video with Nicole Sangsuree yet please do – her legacy before she was killed by a car!

And clearly:
The Earth doesn’t belong to us.
We belong to the Earth.

The Spirit of URANUS in TAU can also bring a Renaissance of Back to Nature / incl. communal farming, as more and more people opt out of the status quo of nature congestion, and de-natured food, and want more freedom while working / living with, not at the expense of the Earth.

And the Earth itself might release lots of built-up stress and pressure.
The Kilauea quake and volcanic eruption in May 2018, just before URANUS entered TAU for the first time was a precursor… see the blog post: The Ancient, Sacred Earth showing her Power.

Wake-up calls is what URANUS is famous for.
Freedom from complacency, indulgence, and taking wayyy too much time (shadows of TAU), and Freedom for a new Earth Awareness.
We really can’t wait another decade or 5 to do anything about getting our act together (is also what SATURN and PLUTO in CAP say).

The Awakening to a new Earth Awareness, reflected through URANUS in TAU will affect food, money / value exchange, and economy / ecology, and calls for innovative solutions in a volatile world.



Our connectedness with all of Earth’s Beings is being (re)awakened now (if it hasn’t already) – which spurs us into action and can shake others up too.
Perhaps to stand up, rise up, and speak up for those sentient Beings who can’t speak for themselves and need to be protected before it’s too late.

Loving this quote by Eckhart Tolle (from: A New Earth):
“Once there is a certain degree of Presence, of still and alert attention in human beings’ perceptions, they can sense the divine life essence, the one indwelling consciousness or spirit in every creature, every life-form, recognize it as one with their own essence and so love it as themselves.”
Being Awake in our True Nature, as Nature, in Nature.


Where do you stand in this?
What’s new and freeing in your relationship to Mother Nature?
What’s shifting for you?

Those of you born with URANUS in SCO (Dec 1974 – Apr 1975, and Sept 1975 – Nov 1981) will have their URANUS Opposition in the years of URANUS in TAU – an awakening / liberation in mid-life which can be a huge catalyst for radical life changes.

All of us (independent of age) esp. if we have SUN, MOON, AC, or Planets in TAURUS (or in LEO, SCO, AQ) are in for surprises too, and we’ll get a Uranian ‘kick in the butt’ to be liberated and reinvent ourselves esp. in the area of life related to our TAURUS House in the chart.

Serving you with astrological guidance and perspective, pointing you to Your ‘Inner Cosmic Compass’.

I’d love to inspire you to be in alignment with, and smoothly ‘ride’, those ‘auspicious’ or ‘challenging’ waves of cosmic energies that present themselves at a given time, and, similar to climate and weather, affect our human energy field.

Because it leads to eye opening awareness, growth, healing, release, transformation, and you can feel connected with yourself in the bigger evolution.
Ultimately, you can dwell in a witnessing place in the ‘Hub of the Wheel’ where you are less and less affected, more and more liberated, and self-realized.

The birth chart is an incarnational map to identify your ‘original imprint’and themes that are showing up as ‘issues’ in your life.
I help you see how you don’t need to be unconsciously identified with them, and they don’t have to run your life.

I’m always happy to welcome you as a client who is not seeking a ‘reading’ from me (“What’s going to happen TO me?”, “What am I supposed to do?”), but to be supported in accessing your own wisdom source, especially in times of a challenging transitions, stuckness, transformational crisis, or for perspective at a crossroad, dilemma, or empowered choices.

This is to empowered and liberating ways of working with the ancient and timeless gift of Astrology!

Our experiential and embodied Astrology groups have over time (the 14 years I’ve been facilitating them) become quite potent and catalytic.
