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.

The next several years serve as a wake up call when it comes to your beliefs and spiritual ideologies. If you've just been going through the motions, Uranus is here to shake you up and get you in touch with your personal truth outside of the status quo. Exploring different religious philosophies is common when this transit takes place in this part of your chart.
Over the course of time, you'll likely connect with various guides and teachers that can help you make sense of some of the bigger questions in life.
Don't be surprised if you find yourself leveling up to some kind of teaching role yourself. Higher learning is also associated with this part of your chart, making it a great time to go back to school. The courses you take during this transit will not only impact you intellectually but at a deep, spiritual level as well. Foreign travel is also a great way to learn if you're not interested in formal education. Sometimes life experience is the greatest teacher we can learn from.
