A Note from Susan Miller
Recently I was having a celebration dinner with Michelle Roque, my talented creative director who had done such brilliant art direction work on my calendars and planners, handling Parisian artist Izak’s work with such grace. Michelle was telling me that some of her friends love Astrology Zone – they only read my summaries to my monthly column. I put down my fork. Hearing this news made me sad. I asked, are you sure, Michelle? She nodded. I strive so to give my readers complete information, and this month, May, I look ahead to the rest of the year to show what is due for you, for planning purposes. Almost none of that vital information will be in my summaries – there was too much to explain.
Your Horoscope by Susan Miller
This will be a hugely important month for you – quite unique in every way. Uranus, the planet of chaos, disruption, genius, innovation, independence, and all things unexpected, will depart temporarily from Aries and enter Taurus. This is likely the first time in your life that you will experience hosting Taurus in your sign, as the last time this independent, rebellious planet was in your sign is was from 1934 to 1942.
Only those Taurus who are born very early in the sign, with birthdays that fall from April 20-24, will feel the first effects of this major planet now. This year, Uranus will only give us all a preview of what is to come in 2018, for Uranus will only remain in Taurus from May 15 to November 15. After that, in November, Uranus will retreat back to Aries where Uranus has been since 2011. Eventually, Uranus will return to Taurus permanently on March 6, 2019, and at that point he will remain with you for the coming seven years, until 2026.
The coming years will be exciting, for if you have dreamed about making gold moves, you will, and will surprise friends and family with how sure you are about what you plan to do. People who know you would have said you are steady, reliable, practical, and interested in building wealth. Now, a new and confident side of you will emerge too, one that is more adventurous, independent, and tired of the status quo.
Remarkably, under this trend of Uranus in Taurus, your appearance may change, too, and you may even change your name or adapt a stage or pen name. In your work, Uranus can make you quite famous, so if that is a dream of yours, to be well known, it is there for you for the taking.
It takes Uranus 84 years to circle the Sun and go through every sign of the zodiac. As you can readily see, not every person who has ever lived is guaranteed to get to experience this amazing Uranus conjunct their birthday sign.
If you have a little child who is a Taurus, as does my friend Leigh, who has darling little Riley, a girl, age 7, you may see in coming years, that child will experience bouts of extraordinary creativity. A talent or special interest in that child that was inborn may emerge that her mother may want to develop in Riley, getting her lessons and encouragement. Astrologers often refer to Uranus as the higher octave of Mercury, taking the brainpower, perception, and communication ability of Mercury and Uranus and synthesizing those gifts into a whole new level – into the realm of innovation and genius.
