Uranus in Taurus
Uranus is very much at odds with the symbolism presented by Taurus. Most modern astrologers believe Uranus to be hot and dry in nature. Uranus is indicative of change, extremes, revolution, upsets, revelations and insight. Taurus is about a continuance of issues in a steady, slow, consistent and predictable manner. In effect, Uranus contradicts the Taurean notion of security. For this generation, security is not something that can be taken for granted. Uranus was in this place back in the 1850's during the gold rush and again in the 1930's during the great depression, hence showing the extremes that Uranus gives signs for when in this sign of capital finance and sense of values.
In a diurnal chart, the heat and dryness of Uranus is strengthened, making for greater extremes in what one values during the course of life. There is also greater uncertainty for this half of the generation. There may be artistic insight and great creative talent. If any inner planets are closely configured with Uranus, then this is especially true for you personally.
In a nocturnal chart, the cool and moist of night counteract and moderate the extreme nature of this planet. As a result, this half of the generation suffers sudden change less frequently and not as completely. Usually there is greater stability, but not as much progress in personal goals, unless inner planets are closely configured with Uranus.
