We’ve been discussing Uranus’ move into Taurus for many months but again let’s go over the facts. The only people old enough to remember the last time Uranus was in Taurus are 75 years plus given the last time it was in Taurus was between1934-1942. And the time before that cycle was 1850-1859. And in the 18thcentury it was between 1767-1775. If you look at those dates you will note the obvious, that it marked the run up to major wars. World War II started 1939 ending in 1945. And although it was not global, the USA civil war that started in 1860 and had worldwide consequences. And of course the USA revolution was in 1776. Arguably the changes that took place during the run up of Uranus in Taurus were part and parcel to the wars. And if you look at the very core of all three wars it is impossible to not over state that issues around ‘owning’ which is THE Taurus word, were critical to the wars. Owning land. Owning other humans. Owning ‘values’. Owning freedom. Let's see how the astrological interpretation compares to Tarot. In this case: a reading with the Nostradamus Tarot (by John Matthews and Wil Kinghan)
The energy is palpable! A Cosmic Shift of immense proportions is happening with the conjunction of Uranus and Taurus. Described in depth by astrologer Margaret Wendt, this confluence was
experienced three other times in our history. During the Revolutionary War, the Civil War and World War II. The following article focused on this conjunction is well worth the read.
Let's take a look at this unfolding with Tarot, in this case, the NOSTRADAMOS TAROT, using The Wheel of Centuries spread.
A Tarot spread describes the teachings of The Universe concerning any particular question and charts a suggested course of action we are to take in regards to that question. We have Free Will, however, to follow the directives or not. This is our Choice. Even when we ask a question concerning a major event, each of us is part of the matrix of that event's influence and will be affected by it in some way. This is where Metaphysics comes right up against Quantum thought. Our action or non action can affect the morphogenic field either positively or negatively. So, let's see what this event has in store for us?
Our question is: What is the significant affect of this conjunction of energies (Uranus/Taurus) on our world and/or on us, at this time?

OK, so what does it all mean? And how does one go about interpreting the puzzle? First read each piece individually and relate it to the question posed in each section. Take it in. Close your eyes and feel it. How do you feel about this information intuitively. Go through all eight positions this way. Then stand back and look at the whole. How does that “speak” to you?
I fear I may be a bit biased but this certainly sounds to me like our present political situation and our current President. The last position hints at some financial crisis in answer to “What is next?” It will be interesting to see what unfolds.
