To understand Uranus astrology, realize that the God of the Future operates in seven-year cycles. They are not so much a seven-year itch as a zap.
Tired and wired but super-inspired? It’s normal at the end of a Uranian era. Uranus cycles are seven years long, but they’re not an itch – they’re a zap. Regardless of your natal chart and the houses, Uranus through the signs still packs some major pow. When the God of the Future is at the end of one sign/constellation, it’s exhausting.
It becomes crazy-obvious that old spells don’t work and that you’re going to need new mojo. Innovation comes in wild spurts, and because everything is in hyper-flux, you’re unlikely to feel any form of calm certainty that you’re on the right track. It can help to think of the past Uranian eras.
Uranus Astrology Timelines
Uranus into Capricorn – December 1988
Uranus into Aquarius – January 1996
Uranus into Pisces – December 2003
Uranus into Aries – March 2011
Uranus into Taurus – March 2019
Think about what you began in those times and how the eras played out for you.
For simplicity, I am leaving out the little prequel that occurs with each entrance of Uranus into a new sign. It moves in and then out again, a la last May to November. The months above were when Uranus established in the signs. They’re distinct eras; with their back-drop, themes, soundtrack, and characters.
This week, as Uranus verges on settling into Taurus for seven years, the energy from the dying Uranus era is still there, but it’s barely potent. You can try to deploy it in love, art or commerce but it backfires or goes off with a piffling impact.
Uranus astrology is not so much glimpsed in the every day as it is apparent over these seven-year cycles. But what you may be already feeling is that the new vibe coming in is ultra-raw and potent, particularly in the classic Taurus areas: body, ecology, food, business. It’s particularly tangible for Aries, Taurus and Aquarius people or anyone with those as rising signs.
