Venus will connect Uranus at 10 Taurus on Thursday / Friday, April 22nd or 23rd. This will affect planets or angles like the Ascendant or MC at 10 degrees of any of the fixed signs – Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius.
Uranus works to speed up, activate, or stimulate events and experiences as if the wheel of life is moving faster than usual. You may have to juggle more than usual, or have to deal with a last minute change of plan or even an impromptu offer.
Venus conjunct Uranus has the property of breaking through or breaking out, like finding a key to freedom. You might feel like you wake up to something or suddenly get some realization. This can lead to a change in attitudes, habits, desires or behavior. Uranus loves to push you to do things differently or to try something outside of your comfort zone.
All types of relationships can be shaken by the winds of change through our partnerships and can help you evolve or make more authentic decisions, especially about who you interact with and under what circumstances. Make decisions that will help you break a pattern in dating and relationships, be it with a friend, family member, romantic partner, or someone at work.
2021 trends: Saturn in Aquarius square Uranus in Taurus
The connection of Venus with Uranus will activate one of the outstanding astrological aspects of the year 2021 as an extension: Saturn square Uranus.
This strong aspect from Saturn to Uranus is about upheaval and indicates a major restructuring both in society and in your daily life. Venus will migrate from Uranus to Saturn from April 22nd to April 25th, and this period could be ideal to make a radical but completely right change for you, or to surprise someone by adding a real but previously unspoken need or desire share.
Uranus is all about shaking up the status quo so the next few days may just be about changes that lead to freedom, autonomy and independence.
Enjoyment, luxury and women
Venus is all about pleasure, and when Venus meets Uranus, you can explore new ways to enjoy pleasure or innovatively bring a little luxury into your life. If you are bored of doing what you normally do for pleasure, fun, and relaxation, now is the time to experiment and try something new, fresh, or different.
Topics and issues that are particularly relevant to women and the expression of the feminine in society can make headlines. This aspect can speak of advocacy or activism, which can lead to greater freedom and choice, especially – but not only – for women. Venus’ other sign, Libra, is about fairness, and in this aspect there are threads of removing barriers to essential needs like security, stability, and security, especially those related to food. These topics are just a few small excerpts from the longer trend of Uranus in Taurus, which I discuss in more detail in this webinar “Uranus in Taurus: Transits for the New Era”.
Uranus and Prometheus
I love the mythology of Prometheus to get a better understanding of how Uranus is used in astrology.
Prometheus stole fire from the gods and gave it to mankind.
In myth, this “fire” is a symbol of wisdom, knowledge, light, inspiration, insight, intelligence and so on – to take this “fire” from the gods and give it to mankind means spreading divine wisdom and powerful insights or Knowledge of taking something that is normally only available to a select few and sharing it with many. For more information on the connections between Prometheus and Uranus in astrology, see “Prometheus the Awakener” by Richard Tarnas.
These unpredictable aspects from Venus to Uranus (this week) and from Saturn to Uranus (off and on throughout 2021) are sure to change your perspective as they trigger events and experiences that will help you question the status quo to ask and question.
In the unexpected, an opportunity can hide, so if events in the next few days do not go as planned, since Venus is connected to Uranus, I wonder what breakthrough or discovery you will make when you find your way on a path that you did not expect to take.
