The major cosmic event of 2018 takes place on May 15, 2018 when the planet Uranus (the archetype of sudden changes, revolution and individuation) enters the sign of Taurus, the sign of personal resources, money, value/ values, food, the body and sensuality!
These two energies square each other on the zodiac wheel, and the tension of this transit may feel rather uncomfortable when these two energies collide. Uranus represents the collective, Taurus represents the personal. Uranus is associated with the future, Taurus is more concerned with the past. It can feel quite messy at times, and yet, creativity relies on chaos. Indeed, in order to think outside of the box, requires a box.
The highest aspiration for the next seven years will have us mixing and mingling the vibes, tempering the two into a harmonious blend. It will be a time of pairing down, liberating ourselves from the impractical and striving for out of the box solutions.
As an outer planet, Uranian influence impacts generations rather than the individual. Having said that, the house Uranus transits in your natal or progressed chart is where you can look for some clues as to what to expect during this 7 year transit. The vlog is a breakdown of what to expect by rising sign, but you can listen (or read on) for your sun and moon sign as well....

Whatever it is, Courageous Aries, you have no fear when it comes to exploring these new resources in new ways.

Whatever it is you choose now, Virgo, the world can certainly learn a thing or two from you about discernment!
Your penchant for creating harmony often means that you will go above and beyond to make others feel more comfortable -- at your own expense. The next seven years will kick up the dust that has been swept under the proverbial rug of your interpersonal vulnerabilities. With a Uranus transit through your 8th House, your lessons in relating to others deepens and you may suddenly come to understand that balance and harmony are two different things -- balance means equal but separate measures.
