Uranian Taurus New Moon and Saturn in Aquarius 2020: A Revolution in Consciousness and Money
by Phillip Lindsay
Uranus in Taurus
As described in a recent post, the monthly balsamic phase of the moon is just elapsing, presaging the new moon of Taurus on April 23 – planting the seed for the following full moon period of Taurus on May 7. As the “mother of illumination”, Taurus sheds light upon our current situation, aided at the new moon by a conjunction to Uranus the revolutionary:
“Uranus, therefore, initiates a new order of life and conditions and this—when developed in the life of the disciple—in its turn produces an understanding of the causes of things as they are, and the desire to change the old order and the old orientation into the new.”1
The main configuration in the new moon chart is the sun, moon and Uranus in Taurus, all square to Saturn in Aquarius – the sign that Uranus rules. This dynamic point of tension at the new moon fosters a radical breaking away from tradition (Saturn) – by the revolutionary forces of Uranus, utilising the progressive energies of Aquarius.
Uranus and Taurus are both connected to money, hence a major revolution in the financial system can certainly be brought about while it remains in this sign until 2025; not only money but the cultivation of a better global system of human values.
This Uranian new moon may well kickstart the process, especially now that the price of oil has plummetted in the past few days, airlines and other big companies are going bankrupt, millions are out of work and losing business etc.
“Uranus … the seventh ray works through this planet and is the embodiment of the principle of concretion and the materialising of that which is in need of objective manifestation, through the bringing together of spirit and matter. It is here that the whole mystery of money lies hid and the creation and production of money … It is through the relation of the three aspects of the third divine manifestation—law, affinity and concretised energy—that money is created.”
Uranus – an “eccentric orbit” for an eccentric planet!
Uranus, the planet of the scientific mind, “falls” in Taurus, “the mother of illumination”:
“Uranus, the planet of the hidden mystery and one of the most occult of the planets “falls” in this sign, producing the accentuation and the sharp division between body and soul which is so marked a characteristic of the Taurian subject. It prepares the inner [wo]man for the sharp interplay and conflict …
… The task of Uranus, hidden in the depths, is to awaken and evoke the intuitive response of Taurus to an ever-increasing light until such time that full illumination is achieved and also the development of the spiritual consciousness —substituting these higher soul aspects for the lower form reactions.”3
4. “The task of Uranus … is to awaken and evoke the intuitive response of Taurus to an ever-increasing light, until such time that full illumination is achieved”.
Buddha (Artist: Francis Donald)
The result is a Buddha, who has achieved “full illumination”. The Wesak festival is dedicated to the Buddha – the One who incarnated, became illuminated and passed – in the sign of Taurus. Uranus is also a planet associated with earthquakes and sudden disruptions. Uranus in Taurus particularly evokes the hidden depths of the Earth, symbolised by the giant caverns in Tartarus.
Taurus has many characteristics similar to the third ray of active-intelligence, one of whose symbols is the labyrinth, the Minotaur’s maze, reflecting the tortuous twists, turns and complexities of the ramifying mind. The Minotaur is a mythical creature – with the body of a man and head of a bull, reflecting man’s animal nature, still not fully “human”.
Hence the minotaur represents the shadow or “dweller in the labyrinth”, the untamed mind combined with desire of the bull – becomes a “monster”. The minotaur’s maze is a labyrinth of intellectual circuits and knowledge – in which seekers can become lost, devoured or dominated by their own thoughtforms.
The Minotaur’s maze also describes where Humanity is today, trying to discern the state of the world and thereby developing an expanded awareness, emerging from the “hall of ignorance” into the “hall of learning” and passing through a mass initiation.

It is said that at least 50% of the world’s money must be in the hands of the forces of light before the Externalisation of the Hierarchy can take place. It is quite likely that this target has not yet been reached today – with the domination of the “1%”, predatory corporations and banks making huge profits, not paying their fair share of taxes etc.
But also because Humanity continues to indulge in the purchasing of luxury goods and unnecessary items in the over-saturated retail markets of the world. The Covid19 “intervention” has put a temporary brake upon spending, but when lockdown finishes, will it be business as usual for the 1% and 99% alike?
Uranus in Taurus square Saturn in Aquarius might finally turn the tide – these two planets will remain in square to one another, on and off until the end of 2022.
