On March 6th, Uranus makes its “serious” entry into Taurus Alan Oken

On March 6th, Uranus makes its “serious” entry into Taurus. By “serious” I mean it is not a “teaser/ try this one on for size” entry as it was between May 15 to November 6, 2018, when Uranus transited the first 2 degrees of the Celestial Bull before returning for a few months to Aries. Except for a few months between May 2018 to December 2020, Uranus will be in Taurus at the same time Saturn will be in Capricorn. Saturn will then move into Aquarius when its relationship to Uranus takes on an entirely different type of importance (stay tuned for future Commentaries!).


Why do I mention Saturn’s position in a series of posts primarily devoted to the transits of Uranus? The Tibetan Master, Djwal Khul states in this monumental book, Esoteric Astrology: “Astrology is the science of effective energies.” These “effects” not only indicate that Energy is Life but that the many streams of this Universal Life are linked, blend, and manifest into all the forms of that Life. There is a very special link in this respect between Uranus and Saturn and although my comments in this series of posts will place Uranus in the “foreground” so to speak, it is important that I mention some features of the “Saturnian background” to add substance and meaning to what I am writing.


1. Uranus is the planet which more than any other indicates our pathway to individuation. When strongly placed in the natal map and/or powerfully aspecting that chart, Uranus gives us enormous opportunities to express or own individual character and consciousness. But this cannot be done unless we have gone through “Saturn’s Door.” We do not have the ability to be an individuated human being without first having to “pay our karmic dues” and prove ourselves worthy of the responsibility for expanded consciousness. Unless that dues is paid, the most we can be is an inflated and narcissistic ego who will, when allowed, will cause great damage and chaos.


2. Uranus and Saturn in terms of Capricorn are antithetical. Uranus rebelling again established structure, order, and form and/or indeed imposing same in terms of an inflated personal ego, i.e. North Korea under Kim, Russia under Stalin, or the USA under Trump. Saturn absolutely steadfast in its urge to sustain established structure, order, and form and winning this battle as it alone rules Capricorn!


3. Therefore the current transit of Uranus in Taurus and Saturn in Capricorn will place Saturn in dominance. This is because Saturn is in its Dignity in its own sign of rulership, while Uranus is in its “Fall” when in Taurus. Once Saturn enters Aquarius in December of 2020, we will see that Uranus will have more power and a battle for dominance will ensue via the political and social arenas of the times. It will therefore be of important for you to consider the position of transiting Saturn in Capricorn through your natal chart to see how it will affect and interplay with the transit of Uranus in Taurus. I will give you some definite, practical hints about how to go about doing this in my next article.


4. During the entire period when Saturn is in Capricorn and Uranus is in Taurus, Pluto will be in Capricorn (once again, May 2018 to December 2020—refer to opening paragraph). Briefly stated, this means that the battle for individuation of a political party, national identity, corporate dominance, and yes—our own focus of individualized creative self-expression, will take place via the material plane! If you think that battles are currently being fought for economic dominance in the world—well as the expression goes: “You ain’t seen nothin’ yet!”



Uranus in Taurus, Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn will be “out there” energizing the physical/material plane in full force. Please take note: This will be a period when the Saturn-Uranus-Neptune in Capricorn generations will be moving into significant places in society and making their influences decidedly felt. The first of these generations has all three of these planets in Capricorn (February 15-1988 to February 6, 1991).


The second of these generations no longer has Saturn in Capricorn but continues the energy with even stronger contacts between Uranus and Neptune conjunct in Capricorn (lasting until January 12, 1996 and exact in April of 1993). More to follow and with Love and Blessings to one and all,     Alan Oken
