Uranus in Taurus: Cryptocurrencies and Financial Reforms?

When Uranus first moved into Taurus in 2018, I wrote a post about it: my prediction was that the banking system would be revolutionized while Uranus travelled through this financially-oriented sign, and that cryptocurrencies and other ways of “high-tech” money exchange would become much more prominent.
Uranus brings disruption of the status quo, changes and innovation, after all. And Taurus represents finances, among other things.
Uranus in Taurus can play out on other levels as well, such as environment. But, as far as finances go, think innovation and digitalization in the financial sector, such as:
- Technology-driven change
- Cryptocurrencies and electronic money
- Bank or financial sector reforms
- Innovative banking practices.
Fast forward to 2020. The pandemic made cash obsolete in many places, for a while anyway. “No cash accepted! Cashless payments only!” Even before that, technologies like Apple Pay removed the need for physical credit cards.
Bitcoin is the best known of all cryptocurrencies, gaining increased attention this year. According to Nasdaq, as of April 2021, it’s value had soared 681% since January 1 2020.
Are cryptocurrencies the financial revolution promised by Uranus in Taurus? That is hard to say – astrology will highlight the dominant energies starting to colour our life, but it won’t predict the exact way the energies are going to play out.
This is what we know though: Uranus will stay in Taurus until July 27 2025. At that point, Uranus will retrograde into Aries, and then return to Taurus for its final stay, Nov. 8 2025 to April 25 2026. The main events we’re going to experience in the financial sector are going to play out by July 2025, followed by a period of consolidation when Uranus spends its final few months in Taurus. It takes Uranus 84 years to circle the Zodiac, so in an average lifespan, we will experience Uranus in Taurus only once!
With Uranus staying in Taurus until 2026, there are a couple of astrological clues that help us narrow some possible events.
Bitcoin’s Jupiter Return:
Every entity – such as a business or bitcoin in this example – has its own natal chart, based on the date/time and location when it was established. Bitcoin had a Jupiter Return in December 2020. No wonder it’s had such a good 6 months overall! A Jupiter Return is a usually a jubilant time filled with expansion.
Saturn-Uranus Square 2021-2022:
In 2021, Uranus will form a tense square to Saturn in Aquarius 3 times: Feb. 17, June 14, and Dec. 24. We will have another spike of this energy in October 2022. It’s a volatile energy that can make stock markets swing – bringing an opportunity to make money for those who have high risk tolerance – but also an equal opportunity to lose money.
I must admit, I don’t always think of cryptocurrencies as an investment vehicle. I’m at the stage of life when too much financial risk is not a good thing. So when I first wrote about this volatile Saturn-Uranus square, I predicted an overall fluctuation in the stock market – that’s what I invest in, after all!
But, it was specifically bitcoin. It started rising in December 2020 but then fell 40% in February – one week after the first Saturn-Uranus square. It’s recovered and went up again since then.
In astrology, when the same planetary energy peaks 3 times, the first peak is a good predictor of the events that will follow. If there is an event, it will happen 2-3 weeks on either side of the energy peak. As we’re heading into the second Saturn-Uranus square peaking on June 14, there is an increased talk of a potential bitcoin crash. If this were to happen, it might be another opportunity to buy low.
The Saturn-Uranus energy that colours the entire 2021 is pretty unstable though, bringing ups and downs. This energy will return again in the second half of 2022.
One quick note - 2022 is a volatile year overall as far as the financial sector, because of the eclipses in Taurus-Scorpio. More below.
Enter Jupiter in Pisces: 2021-2022
Meanwhile, Jupiter will visit Pisces 3 times over the next 18 months:
- May 13 - July 28 2021
- Dec. 28 2021 – May 10 2022
- Oct. 28 – Dec. 20 2022.
As far as finances go, Jupiter in Pisces can bring inflation, especially around the time it conjoins Neptune (April 12 2022). 2-3 weeks before and after this date might be particularly eventful.
Unrelated to cryptocurrencies, Jupiter and Neptune connecting in Pisces can drive up oil and gas prices.
Jupiter will also positively connect with Uranus in February 2022, and then with Pluto between April 28 to May 8 2022. This stimulates the energy of innovation or revolution in the financial sector, and financial gains (especially if these planetary aspects hit your own natal chart just right).
Eclipses in Taurus and Scorpio: 2021-2023
And let's not forget that the nodal axis will be moving into Taurus-Scorpio in 2022. The first harbinger of this change is a Lunar Eclipse in Taurus on Nov. 19 2021.
Eclipses shock and destabilize the areas ruled by the Zodiac signs they pass through. With Taurus and Scorpio, the big three are the financial sector, agriculture, and Mother Nature.
There could be major market instability throughout 2022, especially around the eclipse season: April-May 2022, and October-November 2022.
Jupiter-Pluto Square: April 22 – June 8 2023
In 2020, we had a Jupiter-Pluto conjunction, “a millionaire aspect” as astrology likes to call it. The year these two planets come together, there is money to be made. It’s not going to apply to everyone at once, of course. But, if this planetary combo hits your own natal chart just right – you will benefit financially!
In 2020, we had massive government subsidies due to COVID. As a friend of mine attests, as a business owner, she just happened to be between contracts for one month, precisely when the government help hit. She qualified – and had a sudden windfall of $10K.
In 2023, the same energy will return, but it’s going to be quite tense. It might be another year to benefit from unexpected opportunities, but they could come with a cost in the end.
Jupiter-Uranus Conjunction: April 2024
Another big event during Uranus’s stay in Taurus is Jupiter-Uranus conjunction in Taurus on April 21 2024. This is a strongly positive energy that can promote a major change in the financial sector. This is the year when a positive financial reform or new financial technologies that affect the world in a major way are possible.
If you have personal planets at 20-24 degrees of Taurus, Virgo or Capricorn, 2024 could be a majorly beneficial year for you.
We’re in for a few interesting years, as far as the financial sector goes!
