Uranus enters Taurus: Money and the Security Revolution

Today, May 15, 2018, we have a New Moon in Taurus alongside a major astrological event: Uranus, the Great Awakener, enters Taurus, fixed sign of the Bull. Uranus as evolutionary force is often associated with Kundalini and earthquakes, spiritual enlightenment and technological discoveries, psychic flashes and lightning-fast intuition aka ‘direct knowing.’ When it comes to Uranus, think revolutionary, rebellious, radical. Most importantly, think overnight, unpredictable CHANGE.

Uranus will be in earthy, stubborn, sensual, determined, comfort- and security-loving Taurus for eight years, until April 2026. There is one retrograde exception: November 2018 until March 2019, when he storms back to fiery Aries just to make sure we’ve thoroughly learned our lessons about reclaiming our independence, our self-determination, our personal rights. Most of us have learned plenty about speaking up and individuating for the time being, and are ready for a new theme. Well, here it is:

With Uranus in Taurus, our relationship to the material world enters the change crucible. This includes our relationships to Mama Earth, to our bodies, to our sensuality, and to money. The latter will be the focus of this article - our personal relationship to money.

The word money comes from the Latin monēta, (money, a place for coining money, coin, mint), from the name of the temple of the goddess Juno Moneta in Rome, where a mint was located.

Money is a manifestation of the divine feminine, the Goddess, in our lives. It is a blessing if we allow it, if we work with it, if we listen to it and coax it and understand it. We give and receive. We partner with money. We do not squander, beat it up, demand it, or neglect it.

  •     Here are some of the fiscal life lessons and questions that Uranus in Taurus’ security revolution might bring up:

    -          Where do you “leak” money via spending, over-gifting, vagueness, unclear priorities?

    -          Do you stand up for yourself regarding billing by professionals (doctors, lawyers, business partners, etc.)?

    -          Are you giving money or things away unnecessarily to people, places, situations that you don’t really value in your heart, or where you are not being fully appreciated?

    -         How long has money been an “issue” for you? (If you’re over it, there is help available! Coming out of denial is the first step.)

    -          Are you lost in ‘magical thinking,’ that someday your ship will come in, you’ll hit the big time, the future will bail you out?

    -          How much money do you actually need to live a right-sized, prioritized lifestyle? Have you done a realistic spending plan? It could be much less, or more!, than you currently think.

    -          Are you open to spontaneous transformations of your resource bank (money, goods, services, gifts) – either giving or spending spontaneously in alignment with your spirit, or receiving and manifesting out of the blue.

    -          Watch for business opportunities and collapses occurring in a heartbeat. Follow your instinct and trust your gut in money, investments, gifting – but without being naïve or in denial (see above).

    -          Have you come to understand that you don't have to be in debt with credit cards? There is always another way, whether waiting, asking for help, negotiating, bringing in more funds, and right-sizing your lifestyle.

       Read up on Gift Economy. I might suggest Lewis Hyde’s classic The Gift: Imagination and the Erotic Life of Property (1983) as a classic primer. Burning Man (RIP founder Larry Harvey who passed April 28, 2018) has done wonders for bringing this once-radical concept to the mainstream, transforming into Kickstarter, GoFundMe, and other crowd-sourcing campaigns.

As Uranus now revolutionizes our relationship to the material world through its Taurus travels, we wake up to the honest value of things, to true worth. And that includes our partnering with the goddess Juno Moneta - also known as Money.


There is enough TIME.
There is enough LOVE.

There is enough MONEY.

There is ENOUGH.

  1. Loved this timely piece. There is enough. You are enough. I am enough. 💚💚💚

  2. Love this post, Erin. Money—it's a gas. I've watched you transform your money situation time and time again. I've watched you walk away from high earning jobs to follow your soul's path. And I've watched you thrive from following your intuition and your path. You are so inspirational. Love you.

    1. Yes,dear Lynn, we have been on the path of financial independence and serenity for a long time. I am so grateful for your presence and writing and contributions to our planet as well. Thank you for your words!
