Uranus In Taurus Style Muse

For Uranus in Taurus style inspo, why not look to someone born with it? Not, obviously, a baby but someone from the last time around?  Seventies icon Ali MacGraw is an Aries with Uranus Rising in Taurus.

A survivor of a traumatic childhood, she spent her 20s as a sometime stylist/model living – as one newspaper snarked “in a walk-up on the tacky side of town.”  She made it big at Saturn Return with Love Story – a 1970 saga akin to The Fault In Our Stars – but was deemed ‘difficult’ by the usual suspects.

She spent the Seventies in volatile marriages with high-profile Mars-Neptune men: film producer Robert Evans and move star Steve McQueen but now calls herself “a former man dependent.”

A Cat Lady, animal rights activist and avid Yogi since Chiron Return, she is also a recovering Alcoholic. MacGraw credits the Betty Ford clinic for assisting her in leaving both those addictions behind her.

Gracious aging – or any aging – when you’ve been a universally acknowledged ‘sex symbol’ is never easy but she’s managing it with Uranian ingenuity.

Her style is geared around an ethical feminist clothes company that she reps – Ibu Movement, her Vegan values and self-acceptance: “I get really sad when I see someone my age who is totally freaked out by being 80. If you’re lucky to be a healthy 80-year-old, then you must go out there and live. And live the best you can,” she says.

  1. I saw a lot of stuff in that rainbow iridescent material today at H&M. Also, I bought a dress with a flower print on it rather than my usual black – ‘everything black!’ – which is a big switch for me. Perhaps a more Venusian wardrobe needed? I’m at a stopping place with current wardrobe and I have shoes that are literally falling apart, dessicating….pretty blatant sign that something new is needed and the old is physically on its way out! haha!

  2. Love Ali, she has such a natural beauty and great bone structure. I also love that her career started somewhat later in life (think she was 30?) and very organically… which also comes through in how she doesn’t seem like the typical diva actress stereotype.

  3. Lux Interior Is My Co-Pilot

    Please please please let natural facial hair for women be the next big trend

    I’m SORTED

    Loved Ali McGraw’s au-naturel mo. She bagged Steve McQueen! With a mo’!


  4. I exThat was a key theme for me throughout Uranus in Aries both before, during, and after Uranus crossed my DC. The Pluto-Uranus zap zone happened exactly on my angles, so the actual transit to my DC was more of a mental breakdown than anything else lol thanks to Uncle Pluto. No really, thanks Uncle Pluto. I did a LOT better, fashionwise, after it crossed my DC, but there were a lot of Saturn, Jupiter, and North Node transits involved with this too.

    1. I get it, I haven’t recovered from Pluto crossing my Moon Neptune almost 20 years ago. My life was on a trajectory in one direction and then it all disintegrated.

  5. Oh, lovely! I remember admiring her photo on the cover of my parents’ Love Story album.

    Does Uranus crossing your DC have an impact on style choices? I’m aware of Venus transits but I hadn’t thought much about what the Uranus opposition to my AC and natal Uranus would do. Style explosion? Not wanting to wear anything I currently own? Having a phase of not being able to express myself until I figure it out? Uranus will also square my sun so I’m envisioning some friction.

    1. Same same for me, 1H Uranian (mine is conj moon, trine Sun), and I decided on hippie biker chick 30 years ago precisely for the efficiency and practicality. Variations on a theme that will never change.

  6. I don’t know about changing up but definitely going back to sleek scorpio dark hues which is a far cry from my patterned and colourful wardrobe. Although I did keep some of the sleeker clothing in case of a revival. Somewhat sustainable. Can’t afford to be extravagant like Taurus.

  7. I rewatched “Love Story” a few years ago…she was so classic and stylish her clothes were still amazing almost 50yrs later. What an interesting life she’s had!

  8. Oh man, I am going oversees for a friends wedding as Uranus goes into Taurus. I am already a ruthlessly light packer – do I leave big gaps and shop there? That sounds stressful but as a Libra rising it bugs me when I am not feeling my outfit. Am I being neurotic? Sometime during the Jupiter in Virgo era I got extra obsessed with natural beauty products, buying less but buying quality ethical clothing… but I think I tried to implement them too soon and got disillusioned once Jupiter hit my Scorpio stellium.

  9. Although Uranus will go into Taurus very soon it will still be hanging out in my 1st for another few years. So it entered in 2011 when it hit my asc in pisces with mars in tow and will be cruising on through until I reckon about 2021. I expect to feel the shift somewhat but it is not really about to start until then I doubt. And if my finance gets as much shizzz as my ego then I am in for bankruptcy !

  10. Wait, how old is she?? My mother was born in 1941 (76 yrs old) and has Uranus at the end of Taurus (conjunct Saturn and Lilith, gads). I guess that’s about right, but then Uranus in Taurus would’ve been here more recently than 84 years. I’m reckoning that it’s been 84 years since the ingress of Uranus into Taurus, but it actually left Taurus about 75 years ago. Sorry, Mercury/Mars in Virgo pinging hard here.

  11. “Radically evolving your image when Uranus changes sign is often an unconscious instinct but collaborate with this vibe for maximum results!”

    Considering that Uranus will be sextile to my Natal Venus I believe this will be one of the effects – at least for me – of Uranus in Taurus.

    1. This holographic shizz is everywhere right now – I have a makeup bag, phone case, wallet & shoes just like this…. it’s very Gemini-Pisces to me but I find it interesting to see this craze linked in with Uranus/ Taurus too

      1. I’ve also seen it. Started with 90s revival. All over black milk and other teeny brands. Haven’t seen it make mature fashion yet. I am curious if it will! That will be an interesting time.
