Taurus Forecast for 2018
This is a huge year by any definition, with some major developments in play. However, the most important of all this year’s rock star developments is Uranus’ return to Taurus on the 16th May. Returning during your birthday month, this will kick off for some the most important solar year in a lifetime and for all, a major new personal journey. Apart from Jupiter, who will spend one year out of every 12 years in Taurus and Saturn, who will spend three out of every thirty years here, there has been no planetary activity for longer than that, since Uranus himself left in 1942. Apart from the few months that Uranus will retrograde back into a nostalgic part of your chart from the 7th November to the 6th March 2019, the planet of surprise, synchronicity and the unexpected is here until 2026. Uranus is the planet that brings your personal truth and a chance to express the real you and is something you’ve been preparing for, for eight years. For it was in 2010 that Uranus began winding down a Uranus cycle that began in 1935, with his return to Taurus on the 16th May kicking off a new Uranus cycle.
Uranus will return a day after a New Moon in Taurus on the 15th May and will bring a chance to commit to your new solar year, the future and the journey ahead, little knowing that just 24 hours later this will need to be revised. While with Jupiter in your relationship sector until the 9th November this is a massive year for relationships in general, this is unlikely to conflict with this new period of personal growth. Uranus returns to Taurus too late into Jupiter’s 13 month visit to ever move into opposition, though there could be some conflict between the two in September, October and into the early days of November when the faster moving planets return to help bring Jupiter’s year long visit to your relationship sector home. However, as long as you work to maintain a balance between your personal and relationship needs throughout the year, that shouldn’t be a problem. Another major theme this year is learning, travel, adventure and all things associated with the higher mind or moving out of your comfort zone. Anything from higher learning, publishing or travel for more than just being an armchair tourist has some serious support. So much so that you will find it hard to simply go through the motions. Yet there are also plenty of professional options this year, especially in the first six weeks of the year, but also in the period from the 16th May to the 13th August and from the 11th September to the 16th November.
