Uranus, the planet that many astrologers refer to as "The Great Awakener", recently settled into pleasure-seeking Taurus where it will remain until 2026. Over the next several years, this erratic planet will push us out of our comfort zone in nothing less than its disruptive fashion. As much as we'd prefer for change to be smooth and easy, Uranus has other ideas in mind that often result in shake-ups within our foundation that ultimately give way for something new to be defined.
During the past seven years, the planet of chaos has spent its time in the bold, trailblazing sign that is Aries which likely resulted in some upheaval as it pertains to your personal identity and autonomy. As the first sign of the zodiac, Aries is all about the self. While Uranus was transiting through this fiery sign, there were likely some defining moments in which you were challenged to define yourself apart from the group, whether that be your family, friends, or any organization you were apart of (this includes the workplace and educational environments).
Any abrupt changes that you experienced during the transit were meant to develop your creative problem-solving skills while teaching you to be more adaptable to life and the curve balls it throws at us sometimes. While the cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn) took the hardest hits over the last several years, they also experienced some of the most transformational growth as well. You can check out which planets you have in any of those signs to pinpoint which area of your life Uranus wreaked havoc in.
Up until 2026, this eccentric planet will begrudgingly move through Taurus, a very stable sign completely juxtaposing Uranus' energy, paving the way for new foundations related to the way that we earn money, what we value, and how we utilize our resources. As destabilizing as this transit can be, we are ultimately being gifted the opportunity to strip away our attachment to the status quo to embody a more liberated, authentic expression of self.

Cancer & Cancer Rising
Uranus is here to cause some upheaval when it comes to those big hopes and dreams. Over the next several years, you'll likely find yourself switching up course quite drastically as your personal values undergo a major transformation. What matters to you now may not hold as much substance as this progressive planet ventures through Taurus. Uranus is known to be quite the rebel and when it's transiting in this part of your chart, you may find yourself feeling very connected to a social cause possibly having to do with wage gaps and underprivileged communities.
As lowkey as you can be, this energy will shake you up out of your shell to use your voice and influence to gather the numbers for a like-minded cause.
Whether you're rallying support on social media or amongst your friends, you've got what it takes to be an agent of change for the collective at large. It takes a village, Cancer. Keep this in mind while you're out here making your dreams, and those of others, come true.
