Transiting Uranus conjunct Natal Sun

Freedom, independence, and individuality are the key issues for this time period. You find it extremely difficult to continue in a daily activity that is tedious, boring, or simply unexciting. Of course, no one enjoys tedium, but at this point in your life, you simply cannot tolerate it! If your job is unexciting, you may leave it even if you do not have another job lined up. This is certainly a time to break up old patterns and be adventurous, but be wary of being foolhardy.

You are impatient now; you want your life to be exciting. If you are unhappy with some aspect of your life, work on making it better. If you sit back and do little about it, then you will suddenly explode in a fit of impatience and upset the apple cart. For example, if your employment is unsatisfactory, then begin active efforts to change it. If you fail to seek alternative employment or creative changes in your current job, it is likely that one day your frustration will build up to a point where you will feel a need to quit the job despite the lack of another one.

You are more daring and willing to experiment than usual. You also don’t like being tied down and restricted and are likely to be less responsible than usual. Your daring inclinations may come into conflict with your more conservative, ethically ruled tendencies and cause you to feel conflict over the best path to take. No matter what your age, there is a young, free-spirited, perhaps adolescent, quality that tries to come out now. If you try to hold it back, you will experience a lot of tension in your physical body, and spasms can develop. Positive outlets for the spirited, independent inclinations that you feel now can be found in such activities expressing youthful exuberance as dancing, sports, games, music, adventure, experimentation, and invention. In more subtle ways, letting old, outworn habits die away is also very liberating.

Freedom, rebellion, and resistance to authority are the key issues for this time period. You urgently want greater freedom from responsibilities in your personal life now. You may be tempted to gamble on a get-rich-quick scheme so that you won’t have so many financial obligations. If you have worked for many years for a company that provides a retirement plan, you may decide to retire now. You may start up your own business so you can make your own hours. In one way or another, you are tired of years of obligations and restrictions and you feel that now is the time to fully enjoy the fulfillment of a more independent life style.

This is certainly the time to build greater freedom and independence into your life, but whether a radical break from your current involvements will succeed or not is difficult to say. If you gamble in a risky manner, you will probably lose. Also, you may be tempted to drop some of your commitments; this will eventually prove to be an unwise decision. You certainly must break free now, but you can do it in a way that will not leave others who depend on you hanging, wondering where you are. On the other hand, if you are generally a cautious or timid person, you may find all kinds of reasons why you shouldn’t loosen up and break free now. Stop the excuses and enjoy a little more freedom. Only you can decide what is an act of irresponsibility and what is a truly liberating step forward; you must be able to distinguish the difference.

If you are married or involved in a love relationship, you are likely to see traits in your mate that hamper your style and make you feel uncomfortable. The reverse may also occur; your mate feels that you restrict his/her life. This problem also arises between parents and children, typically with the children demanding much more freedom than before, and parents feeling that their children make too many demands on them. If such problems arise, then the people involved need to find ways to express themselves more freely and spontaneously, but remember that you can selfishly ignore the needs of others now and expect them to instantly adapt to your sudden and capricious changes of attitude. Do not run roughshod over the needs of others!@

Upset and unexpected changes are standard fare now! An unusual or exciting event is likely to occur now. For example, if you rarely travel but wish that you could, then you may visit an unusual and exciting place. Actually, this time period is usually not an easy one, and it tends to involve a lot of upsets. However, positive, exciting changes are also possible. Your job situation may change, and the normal, usual routine is likely to change.

This is the time to experiment and investigate things that are totally new to you. You will be exposed to ideas and situations that are different. You must be willing to loosen up and experiment now. If you try to hold back, you can get thrown off the horse! On the other hand, be wary of breaking commitments or promises to others now. You are prone to sudden fits of impatience that can cause you to decide suddenly, with little forethought, to do something that causes you to neglect your responsibilities and you then regret the decision later.

In short, you must not try to hold the reins too tightly now. Experiment, explore, and loosen up. Be willing to sing a new tune, try a new style of clothes, learn about a topic you previously have had little interest in, and experiment in every area of life. However, you also want to be careful that you don’t get a little too wild, become impractical and neglectful of your obligations, and upset much of the progress you have made towards your goals. This is a good time to act a little crazy but wearing Bermuda shorts to your sister’s formal wedding probably won’t go over very well!@

This is an upbeat time, with increased enthusiasm and creativity. There is little resistance to your creative, spontaneous inclinations. This is a wonderful time for creative work and expression of any kind. Dance, music, artistic creativity, and scientific work are all benefited. Originality is highlighted and you are able to compose, design, and create things with fresh insight and originality.

You feel less constrained and hemmed in by circumstances and are able to enjoy activities with greater zest and spirit than usual. You can develop greater agility and fluency at this time. Dancers and musicians, for example, often develop more free-flowing, graceful styles and techniques during this period.

You are less resistant to change than usual now. You find it easier to accept new ideas and explore innovative areas. This is particularly helpful if you are normally conservative and rigid in your approach to life. Take advantage of this time to loosen up, develop greater enthusiasm, creativity, and gracefulness, and explore progressive, innovative ideas and activities.

Your daily life takes on a more lively, enthusiastic, spirited quality during this time period. The effects are not dramatic and unusual, but there definitely is a quickened pace at this time. Fortunately, the mood is lively but not hectic. In fact, this is an enjoyable time when you meet interesting and entertaining people, and you share enthusiastic and lively ideas and interests with others.

Business activities flow smoothly. Organizations and businesses are more flexible and responsive than usual, and you will find that this is an excellent time to cut through red tape and bureaucracy. A big reason why you are able to effectively communicate with others now is because you are less rigid and more spirited and energetic, but also less aggressive, hostile, and defensive than usual.

Transiting Uranus quincunx Natal Sun

The pace of your life and your rhythms quicken and become erratic, unstable, and restless. If you have been suppressing yourself, toeing the line, at this time you will burst out of any restrictions. Impatience, an urge to make radical departures from the status quo, and/or unexpected events in your life compel you to do many things differently. Freedom and independence beckon, but in such a way as to create some schism or at least a high degree of tension within you. If your own or your family’s medical history indicates cardiac problems, be especially aware of those indicators and warning signs now. This is not to say heart problems will inevitably occur, simply that those tendencies increase with this new freedom in your life style.

Transiting Uranus conjunct Natal Moon

Breaking free from past habits and attachments, seeking emotional freedom, sudden changes of mood, and the development of new attitudes towards life are key issues now.

This is a time when you rebel against traditional attitudes and ingrained habits in your life. Biases and prejudices of all kinds can break down now. This process can be extremely difficult because the habits are so deeply ingrained and may cause a rift with your family traditions and expectations, but it is very important that you now break free of these “chains that bind you”. Changing attitudes to your religion, diet, or marriage are particularly likely. If you hold biased feelings, consciously or unconsciously, towards different ethnic groups or life styles, then you will experience a strong desire now to free yourself from these negative, limiting attitudes. If you are unwilling to break your old habits or even recognize them, your moods will swing wildly, and you may find yourself crying sometimes for no apparent reason. If this happens and you cannot find any reason for your feelings, then counseling with an understanding friend, psychologist, or therapist may help you get more in touch with your inner feelings.

Unexpected changes in domestic life sometimes occur during this astrological influence. A sudden move is possible. This is particularly likely when your changing moods and attitudes cause your current environment to feel uncomfortable and inappropriate for you.

Transiting Uranus opposite Natal Moon

Any relationships that you are involved in that have strong dominance-passivity themes or are stifling and restrictive to either one of you are likely to explode now. Even relatively minor constraints and expectations held of each other can become a source of tension now. For example, if you are married and you expect your spouse to cook and clean for you, or you expect your spouse to act and dress in a certain way that meets your needs but is uncomfortable for your spouse, then these expectations may have to be drastically altered or totally abandoned now. There may be habits that you or your spouse have that have been tolerated for a long time even though they are inimical to the other person. Examples of such habits might be smoking, drinking, acting childish and silly, or being very formal and dignified at all times. These minor annoyances now become great stumbling blocks and you may find yourselves arguing over seemingly minor issues. These problems arise because this is a time when OLD HABITS AND EXPECTATIONS MUST BE CHANGED.

This is the time to break old habits and routines that no longer serve their purpose. You must question the values and attitudes that you inherited from your parents and family and put them in a new perspective. Biases and prejudices that you have held will fly back in your face now, and now you may feel that you are being victimized by others who hold prejudices against you. This is a time to forgive and forget the mistakes of the past and make steps forward to become a more accepting, tolerant, responsive, and loving human being.

Transiting Uranus square Natal Moon

Impatience, sudden outbursts of emotions, and the need to break free from stifling, uncomfortable situations are key issues now. During this time period you periodically become overwhelmed with the feeling that you need to make changes and make them NOW. Most of the time you will be quite “normal” but, intermittently, strong feelings and changes of mood erupt that surprise even yourself. Your impatience and impulsiveness will disturb the usual routine of your life. Whether you later regret your impulsiveness depends on how you handle the energy and how many obstacles there are in your life. For example, if a friend, family member, or colleague is domineering or manipulative, then you will suddenly burst out against this person, perhaps lashing out with anger. Any feelings that you have kept a tight lid on will try to force their way out now. If you try to keep the lid on, you will experience intense stress and physical strain or perhaps digestive and stomach problems. Old habits and patterns that have served their purpose need to be discarded. Any habits that are restrictive and limiting are particularly vulnerable to being shattered now.

This is the time to throw out the old and bring in the new. If you have personal habits that you need to change but you have been procrastinating, then now is the time to make the change. You can stop smoking, improve your diet, develop a new self-confidence, drop inherited biases and prejudices, confront a person that you have been hesitant to communicate with openly, or make other needed changes. It is unlikely that you will be able to sustain new habits (such as a new diet) during this time period because you are emotionally unstable and in a phase of much inner change. However, this is the critical time when you can break the old habits and also explore new alternatives to replace the old habits. For example, you may wonder what to eat after you stop eating junk food, or how to relax if you stop smoking! After this time period is over, you may find that you can settle down into some new habits.

Transiting Uranus trine Natal Moon

You are more spontaneous, free, and uninhibited in your expression of feelings now. Your sense of humor is very good, and you can expect a lot of good times, laughter, and joking throughout this period. This is an excellent time for get-togethers with close friends and family members. Games of all kinds appeal to you now and you may find yourself playing games that you haven’t played since you were a youngster, frolicking and laughing like a child too. The child in you is very strong now, and you simply are not in the mood for taking life too seriously. Take full advantage of the opportunities that arise that let you break away from your usual routine and have a good time. There is lots of “play time” so if you are a workaholic, you will just have to tear yourself away from your addiction and allow yourself to have a good time!

This is a time to open the windows and let the fresh air in. Many of your habits and familiar surroundings will be rejuvenated now. You may improve or change your home or landscaping, improve your health habits and rejuvenate your physical body, buy a newer, sportier car, or tear yourself away from humdrum or lukewarm situations that you have become inured to over the years (for example, watching too much television). Now is the time when you experiment and explore more interesting alternatives.

You are also likely to feel the impulse to reawaken old interests that you may not have had the time for in many years -perhaps playing a musical instrument, playing a sport, or engaging in some form of entertainment that you enjoyed as a child. The best advice I can give you is to do all these things fully and do not hold back. Reawaken those old interests and embellish them with a new flourish that appeals to you now. Also follow your instinct to try new things and do things in a different manner than you have ever done before. Even seemingly insignificant things like changes in your home decor or style of dress can have a big effect on your attitude and often are important because they symbolize an important shift in your attitudes.

Transiting Uranus sextile Natal Moon

Spontaneous, carefree, enjoyable times shared with close friends and family make this time period a very positive one. Games, sports, dancing, music, joking, and other lively entertainments are highlighted. This is an excellent time to plan lively get-togethers and parties, especially with close friends or family.

You are able to communicate with others in a very spontaneous and free, uninhibited manner now. You are less inhibited than usual and others do not take offense to your joking or frankness.

Your mood is upbeat and you may decide to make some interesting changes in your surroundings and home. For example, you may change the decor of your home or make some changes to your home. You may also make some changes in your personal habits, and this is an excellent time to quit a bad habit. You will find it relatively easy to stop smoking or improve your diet, for example.

This astrological influence is not an extremely powerful one so don’t expect earth shaking changes, but it does bring the potential for significant improvements in personal habits and increased spontaneity in your life.

Transiting Uranus quincunx Natal Moon

Upsets in the flow of your family life or in some very familiar, well-established part of your life can generate feelings of insecurity and uncertainty. Or for no known reason at all, you may suddenly feel the need to change, bring in something new, break old habits, or leave home, either literally or symbolically. The pull of the past and the beckoning of the new create tension in you and in your closest relationships. Even upsetting events can be rather exhilarating and liberating in an odd way, especially if life has been even and staid for some time.

Relationships with females and family members will be especially topsy-turvy. Beware of excessive impatience with them and try not to act too impulsively.

Transiting Uranus conjunct Natal Mercury

Exposure to new ideas and learning is emphasized now. Your mind will be flooded with new information and ideas, and you will feel enthusiastic and excited by these fresh ideas and insights. Areas in which you have little exposure or consider yourself weak will now come into your life. For example, if you have computer-phobia or math-phobia or metaphysics-phobia or any other kind of information phobia, then this is a time when you can break through your fear and learn more about these areas.

You will be challenged to open your mind up to new information and perspectives. While you are excited about these new ideas, you may also be timid, or even afraid, to open up to these new ideas. If you are too fearful of allowing your thinking to change, then you will become worried, anxious, and very nervous. Don’t be afraid to learn something new! Remember that you do not have to swallow everything. You are simply being provided the opportunity at this point in your life to expand the horizons of your thinking and knowledge.

You may become so excited about some of the things that you learn that you can hardly stop thinking and talking about them. You may also became a bit fanatical about their importance and begin to lecture others on their need to realize their importance also. This time period is a much better one for learning than for teaching! It is wonderful to share your enthusiasm but avoid lecturing to others about subjects you are just recently exposed to yourself. This is also not a good time for making decisions of major importance in your life because your ideas and perspectives on issues are in a state of flux and you tend to be driven more by the appeal and excitement of an idea rather than the practical issues involved.

Transiting Uranus opposite Natal Mercury

The tempo of your life is very fast at this time. If you live in an urban area or are involved in activities that are fast-paced and dynamic, then this time period may become too intense for you. You can expect a lot of phone calls, meetings, and encounters with interesting and unusual people. Your thinking is stimulated by exposure to new ideas, but there is so much going on around you that it is difficult for you to concentrate. You may find yourself talking on the phone and thinking about something else at the same time while your spouse or children are asking you to get off the phone because they want your attention! This is a time of intense mental activity and communication, but you must not let it get out of hand. Find enough quiet time to sort things out and think deeply about the exciting and interesting ideas that you encounter now.

Life tends to be rather unpredictable and things have a way of running their own course regardless of your plans and intentions! It can be an exciting time, but plans can be disrupted. If you have a meeting or event that requires your prompt attendance, then leave early for it in case unexpected problems arise!

This is an excellent time to learn, particularly in areas that are new for you. Opportunities to explore subjects that you have had little chance to study before will now come to you. This is a time when you can gain a great amount of skill and knowledge, particularly in progressive, unusual, or technological subjects.

While this is an excellent time for learning, you can make big mistakes when it comes to major decisions in your life. You may be tempted to make a radical change now, but you are inclined to be taken away by the excitement of the moment and less sensitive to the practical issues and realities at hand.

Transiting Uranus square Natal Mercury

Fresh, exciting ideas appeal to you now and you find it extremely difficult to keep your attention on subject matter or work that you have already mastered. You want to try something new.

For example, a school teacher at this time will refuse to teach the subject material in the same manner that he/she has during the last few years. You feel the need to make changes and inject something original, even if it means experimenting with untried methods. It is likely that you will sporadically feel the urge so strongly that you spontaneously interject new material and dispense with your lesson plan. However, the school principal may not appreciate your innovation! Your impatience to experiment with new ideas and methods can get you in trouble.

You are very inclined to make rash decisions. With little forethought, you will suddenly decide to do something. Your patience is low and your reflexes are fast. This can cause accidents, for example, for you may impulsively decide to turn a corner or pull out into a busy street with less caution than you usually would. Because the impatient, spontaneous, innovative quality of this astrological influence bursts forth in short spurts, you often surprise even yourself by your quick decisions and reactions to situations. Watch what you say as well; you will find that the words are sometimes out of your mouth so quickly that you haven’t thought about what you are saying ahead of time, and consequently you are much more frank, direct, and tactless than you want to be!

Major business decisions or career decisions are usually poor now. You are too excited and impatient and unwilling to recognize the many practical obstacles that your innovative ideas and impatient optimism must face in order to succeed. This is a good time to experiment with new options, explore alternatives, and investigate new ideas, methods, and options of all kinds. Making commitments or major investments now, however, is very risky.

Transiting Uranus trine Natal Mercury

Creative thinking and innovative ideas are key issues now. You are mentally alert and keen, able to absorb new ideas very quickly, and less resistant to new information than usual. This is a time to explore scientific and technological ideas and inventive, progressive, innovative perspectives in any area. You are likely to encounter people, books, training programs, and other opportunities to catch up on the latest developments in various fields of study. Any fear or distaste you have for progressive scientific study will dissolve now, and you will feel more in tune with these topics. If you are scientifically inclined, but conservative in your approach, you will become much more innovative and creative now.

Although scientific and technological areas are particularly emphasized, virtually any area of endeavor is affected: politics, economics, even art and music. You are simply more creative and innovative in your thinking, and some of your best creative thinking can be done now. You can accomplish enormous amounts of work with relative ease. Writers, for example, find that they can write prodigiously with much less strain; often the writing pours forth with almost no interruption for hours at a time. Writing and speaking are smooth and graceful and you have the ability to spontaneously find just the right word or phrase to express an idea.

Transiting Uranus sextile Natal Mercury

You are mentally alert, sharp, and on your toes during this time period. You will perform superbly in a debate or other mental task that requires quick thinking, fast response, and fluent expression of ideas. Writing comes easily now, so if you have some writing you need to do, now is a good time to do it.

Business negotiations and organizational meetings of any kind run very smoothly. You can expect an upbeat atmosphere with a willingness and readiness to act on progressive ideas.

Transiting Uranus quincunx Natal Mercury

Your nervous system is sensitized now, and you may find yourself feeling jittery and over-stimulated. Caffeine or other stimulants may need to be reduced or eliminated, and times of quiet, with no input from electric or mechanical devices, television, radio, cars, etc., would be beneficial.

You are apt to have sudden intuitions and erratic bursts of insight and get excited over ideas and concepts which present themselves to you. However, you need to avoid jumping to conclusions or acting too quickly on ideas without adequately considering or testing them. Speed is a trap for you now. If you slow your pace and do not get too tense or ungrounded, at least a few of the concepts or intuitions are apt to be fruitful. Insomnia can be a bit of a problem now too.

Transiting Uranus conjunct Natal Venus

Parties, celebrations, social gatherings, music, dance, and vacations are very high on your priority list now. You are in a swinging mood and you seek fun and excitement. If your spouse or partner is not responsive to your urges, you will see him/her as boring, stuck-in-the-mud, and too serious. You are so interested in having a good time that you often overlook little chores and obligations, and you find it hard to understand why someone else should hold up the party because of some insignificant chore. Why mow the lawn on Saturday morning when you can go to the beach? Why eat at home when you can eat out? Why sit and watch TV when you can plan an exciting party? Why work when you can use vacation time to visit a romantic, exciting place? It seems very clear to you that now is the time to really enjoy a good time, and hopefully your spouse or partner feels the same way.

Although your romantic and sexual nature is very excitable now, you also don’t like feeling restricted or responsible to another person. If the romantic and sexual aspect of your marriage or love relationship is not very exciting, you may find lots of reasons to weaken the relationship or even end it now. The driving force behind this process, however, is your need for greater excitement and romance in your love relationships.

There is also a strong possibility of falling in love at this time. The romantic and sexual attraction is very strong, but the relationship will not last very long unless you have other things in common as well.

Transiting Uranus opposite Natal Venus

Love relationships at this time go through a lot of changes. It is difficult to say how things will end up when this astrological influence is over, but they are guaranteed to be different. Your relationship may undergo a kind of rebirth, or you may separate from each other.

If you are not involved in a romantic relationship now, you will almost certainly have at least some short-term affairs now. You will very much want to be involved in a love relationship at this time, and you will have relatively little difficulty in drawing attractive people of the opposite sex to you. Intense attractions are likely to form, and you may even decide to marry at this time. However, the marriage will be successful only if there are lots of interests in common. If the other person has some personal habits or traits that are uncomfortable for you, then it may be best to delay marriage since even though these traits are not extremely annoying to you now, they will become more significant problems later.

Your romantic and sexual nature is very excitable now, and you feel an intense need to have a fulfilling and exciting love partner. If you have gotten into a rut with your partner, then you both will be thrown out of the rut now. Try not to be unreasonable in love relationships. You may lose patience with inadequacies in the other person and not give him/her a chance to break old habits and change. If you are married, you may be tempted to become involved in extramarital affairs or flirt with others when your spouse is not around. Dishonesty is not the best policy; you must find a way to have your romantic inclinations met without having to be devious.

For many couples, a good way to start this time period off is by sharing more exciting times together – going out more, vacationing, traveling, socializing, partying, and exploring new subjects or interests together. Adding more spice to your romantic life, such as candles, cards, flowers, perfumes, and more time to be together often sparks the love that has dimmed through the years, and possibly ignites an intensity of feeling and desire between you not experienced before.

Transiting Uranus square Natal Venus

Upsets and change in your love relationships is the key issue now. A shift in your romantic and sexual energies at this time causes changes in love relationships. Your attitudes towards romance and sexuality undergo some changes too. You feel a need for more fulfillment and excitement in your romantic life, and you seek changes in your love relationships. If you are married or involved in a love relationship, it is likely that you will tell your partner in no uncertain terms various things that you would like changed in the relationship. If you are too timid to bring up your desires and concerns, then you will become so intensely dissatisfied with the relationship that you will end up venting your frustrations on your partner and consequently creating animosity and friction that will be most uncomfortable. The changes you want now are ones that bring greater life, zest, romance, and excitement to the relationship. You want to dance, play, party, perhaps even take your clothes off and run naked down the street! You are tired of humdrum activities and the more humdrum your life and love relationships are, the more you want to shake everything up now.

If you are married, you should give your marriage a good shot in the arm now by spending more time together, having romantic evenings alone, vacationing, traveling, partying, dancing, and exploring new areas together. It is time to get a break from the daily routine and responsibilities. If your marriage remains too dull for you, then there is a high probability that you will strain the relationship to the breaking point at this time. You simply do not have the patience now to maintain it, and your romantic and sexual drives are strong and unstable.

There is also a good possibility of falling in love with someone at this time. You may be so in love, in fact, that you may decide to marry, even though your relationship is new. It is possible, however, to fall in love with someone now with whom you are not in good mental rapport or that has annoying personal habits. For example, one person may be a smoker and the other person hates smoking, or your religious views are completely different. These differences may not be extremely bothersome to you now, but they will likely become major problems later.

Also, if you are married, avoid the temptation to become involved in extramarital affairs or secret relationships. Dishonesty and lack of open communications with your spouse is a poor substitute for genuine sharing.

Transiting Uranus trine Natal Venus

Your enthusiasm and zest for living are very high now. This is a positive time when you express your feelings openly. You feel alive and interested in the world about you and your love relationships are exciting and harmonious.

A fresh, youthful exuberance pervades your life. You are in an extremely romantic frame of mind, and you may compose poems and songs even if you do not normally think of yourself as romantic or creative in the arts. Art, music, and dance provide excellent vehicles for you to express your feelings now. You may become involved in music or dance in one way or another now. At the least, you will take a more active interest in music or dance now, and you are likely to attend some major musical events and concerts during this time period. The opportunity to attend these events may be offered to you, but you can make the mistake of turning them down. You may also be tempted to write a poem or a song or pick up the guitar, but feel that it is silly. You are foolish to hold your feelings and instincts back now!

If you are not involved in a love relationship now but would like to be, then there is no better time to start one. Where will you find the “right person”? One big step is simply to be yourself! Express the feelings that want to come through you and go to the places that you feel drawn to go to. Don’t narrow your scope of relationships either. This is a good time for making friends with people of both sexes. You may meet people now who are different from you in many ways, but with whom you can share much in some areas. These relationships are just as rewarding and important as the closer or more romantic ones.

Transiting Uranus sextile Natal Venus

This is a very pleasant period of your life, with many enjoyable social gatherings, entertainments, parties, and festivities. You find it much easier than usual to smile and extend good will towards others. Don’t hold back your feelings; use this time to develop the habit of a positive, loving, optimistic attitude towards life. This is an excellent time for dancing and singing with others. If you are too shy to sing with others or openly share with others in other ways, now is a good time to break down this timidity and rigidity. This astrological influence is not extremely powerful, so don’t sit back and wait for all of these things to happen of their own accord. The opportunity and impetus for these changes is definitely there, but it is up to you to bring out the best that is possible.

Your love relationships are harmonious and fulfilling now. If you are not currently involved in a love relationship, but would like to be, then this may very well be the time when your “love drought” ends. Don’t become too narrowly focused on this possibility, however. This is an excellent time for meeting people of many different life styles and forming many different kinds of friendships and acquaintances. These relationships are just as rewarding and important as the closer and more romantic ones, for one of the benefits of this astrological influence is that it provides the opportunity and ability to share close feelings with people of many different walks of life.

Transiting Uranus quincunx Natal Venus

Social or romantic indiscretions, impulsive extravagances, or radical changes in your love life are indicated. Rumblings of discontent should be heeded, lest a total disruption in a significant relationship comes to pass.

You may encounter someone at this time who turns your world upside down, or who will introduce some element of chaos into your life. Strange tastes and exotic or bizarre attractions to people, food, art or clothing styles are likely. Originality, independence, and striking out in new directions in these areas of your life are on the agenda, yet there may be some resistance or awkward transition involved.

Transiting Uranus conjunct Natal Mars

You are very impatient, energetic, obstinate, and self-willed during this time period. Even if there is no specific deadline for a task, you work as if it must be completed with lightning speed. You love physical activity and adventure now. For example, if you vacation at this time, sky diving or white water rafting would suit you much better than lying on the beach!

If you are normally rather lethargic or scattered in your pursuits, you may not be able to constructively handle this energy and will, consequently, become flustered, irritable, and annoyed without knowing how to get a grip on yourself. The best antidote to this problem is to find a task that needs to be done and do it. You may be inclined to vacillate because you really want to accomplish something now, and washing the dishes, mowing the lawn, or performing other chores may not seem really important. If most of the chores are done, see if the house needs painting! Physical work is usually better than mental work now. The release of energy is tension-releasing, accomplishing the task gives some satisfaction, and frees your mind to subconsciously and consciously focus better on other, more important, issues that concern you.

If you normally tend to be impatient or domineering, then during this time period you will be inclined to become very hotheaded, run roughshod over the needs of others, and be belligerent and domineering. At work everyone else will look like they are moving in slow motion, and you will find it difficult to constrain yourself from urging them to pick up the pace. It is best to keep silent and let others do what they will! Once you start talking, you are likely to start bullying others Your best outlets are ones that allow you uninterrupted dedication to your task and that allow you to work at your own pace. Having someone breathing down your throat now will make you furious. Also, your energy level is so high that you may find yourself still wide awake at very late hours. Active physical exercise will help you stay on a better schedule, and it also helps to disperse any pent up anger or hostilities that have built up during the day.

Don’t let your impatience cause you to take unnecessary risks while driving or engaging in other activities that require caution and care, as you are more accident-prone than usual now.

Courageous and undaunted, you step boldly forth, assert yourself, and charge ahead. If you are normally shy and receding, you will burst out of your shell now. If you are a strong and aggressive person, then you will try to take full command of every aspect of your life and force weaker personalities to submit to you and support you.

Impatient and dynamic, you work feverishly to bring projects that have been ongoing for some time to a rapid completion. You take on Herculean tasks and expect to accomplish them almost overnight. You feel tired of waiting for the things you want, and you charge forth to claim them. Find a task to do and do it! This is one of the worst times to take a relaxing vacation because you won’t be able to relax; you have too much that you want to do right now. If you do vacation, activities like sky diving or white water rafting suit your taste now.

This can be a volatile and explosive time. If you have a bad temper, then you will need to do everything possible to stay in control of yourself at this time. Pent up anger and hostility surfaces, and relatively minor things can cause you to become upset and angry. You are particularly prone to arguments, disagreements, and power struggles with others. You are inclined to not realize how pushy you are, and others may rebel against you. Make bold steps forward now and work hard, but try not to be inconsiderate of others in the process. Energetic physical activity is almost a must and will make you feel better and accomplish more.

Also, you may attract domineering people to yourself, and you may need to assert yourself. This problem is particularly likely if you try to repress and deny the powerful energies that you are dealing with now. Be forthright and direct (that should be easy) but also try to be tactful too (which is not so easy).

Your daredevil attitude may cause you to try dangerous activities or take risks that you normally would not consider. Do be reasonable, however, as your impatience and boldness makes you more accident-prone than usual.

Business decisions and career decisions now tend to be too risky and also warped by your impatient need to accomplish everything in an unrealistically short amount of time.

Periodic fits of restlessness and impatience overcome you throughout this period, and others will wonder what is disturbing you. One minute you are quite relaxed, and the next minute you are rushing around, complaining that everything is a mess and that nothing is getting done. You are very demanding and difficult to please now. You tend to feel like progress is too slow, and you are tired of waiting for the things you want.

Try to eliminate distractions from your life as you enter this time period. You are easily frustrated by inconveniences, obstacles, and distractions, so a good way to orient yourself towards this time period is to get your house in order, clean up, get organized and ready for action! During this time period try to stay busy. You won’t be able to relax so don’t try to. At times you may feel flustered by a feeling that you want to change the course of your life, but you are not entirely sure what to do. All you are sure of is that you need to make a change. Don’t sit around and brood over it too long; it will just make you feel more uncomfortable and irritated. Stay active. If you are not sure what to do, then doing physical exercise or accomplishing chores can help a lot. While you are working, you will think about your situation and options in a more relaxed state of mind, and this will help you gradually formulate options. One of the worst possibilities during this time is making a major decision during a fit of impatience and restlessness, without thinking through the issues in detail. Such decisions often make things worse instead of better. If you can remain in control of yourself, keep busy, and gain a feeling of satisfaction from the work you are accomplishing, then you will be better able to make the decisive dynamic, positive changes that you seek at this time.

Some people try to repress and ignore the inner impetus to make changes and dynamically assert themselves. This will not work because the energy will not go away. This is a time when you need to pick up the pace of your life, work hard, make decisions, and accomplish a great deal.

Be careful while driving or during other activities that require care and attention. Your impatience can cause you to take a risk that leads to an accident.

Transiting Uranus trine Natal Mars

With confidence and courage, you assert yourself boldly. You energetically accomplish a great deal during this time period. Your energy level is much higher than usual, and you can work for long hours without fatigue. You will find yourself staying up late into the night without getting sleepy.

You are in a dynamic, energetic mood, and you work with gusto. Your performance in athletic activities excels now, and your dynamic energy propels you forward successfully in almost any endeavor. Creative work is especially appealing. You really want to pour yourself into what you are doing. You also have a knack for turning daily chores or uninteresting tasks into creative activities. If a task is very tedious and you can’t find a way to spice it up, you will simply drop the task and involve yourself with something more interesting. You instinctively realize that this is the time to create things, to make things, and to pour yourself wholeheartedly into activities. Follow your instincts to do this without restraint, for some of your best work can be done now.

If you have been reluctant to pursue some activity due to shyness, lack of confidence, or laziness, now is the time to come out of your shell and come forth boldly. You are likely to be surprised by the ease with which you handle situations and succeed in your endeavor.

Transiting Uranus sextile Natal Mars

Your energy level is high now, and you work very enthusiastically. You also are able to manage and motivate others very effectively, and you may find yourself involved in a successful and productive team effort. Your dynamic, cooperative spirit is appreciated by others and helps business affairs to run smoothly. You will find that others will assist you in achieving tasks, and you meet few obstacles to accomplishing whatever you put your mind to.

You can accomplish an enormous amount of work now, and you can work for long hours without fatigue or stress. You also take a creative approach to your work and are likely to make, build, or construct something interesting.

Transiting Uranus quincunx Natal Mars

Sudden reversals of decisions, unexpected changes in plans, and friction with others that leads to erratic action on your part is indicated now. Accidents or traumas due to outbursts of anger or to brazen recklessness need to be guarded against. Take it easy, slow your pace, recheck safety precautions. You can avoid much of the strife of this time period if you regularly exercise or work out, preferably on your own. Interactions with others, males in particular, can lead to trouble for you at this time.

Transiting Uranus conjunct Natal Jupiter

You are wildly optimistic and enthusiastic now! Your luck is very good too, and this further stimulates your optimism. Life seems less restrictive and limiting. Promotions, advancement, bonuses, and travel are likely during this time period. Pressures decrease; for example, important deadlines are easily met, pushed back, or canceled. You are less worried, anxious, and concerned than usual.

However, this surge of optimism, high spirits, and fortuitous circumstances does not guarantee that all of your ventures will turn out well. In fact, it is likely that you will overestimate the growth potential of the ventures that you consider at this time. You are inclined to gamble and speculate, overlooking many of the hard facts and realistic obstacles. This is an excellent time to explore new possibilities and expand your horizons. It can also be a good time to start new ventures as long as you haven’t let your optimism and high spirits cloud your awareness of the practical obstacles and details at hand as well.

You are likely to spend a lot of money during this time period. You are in the mood for celebrating and it is hard for you to control yourself. There is the possibility of being driven by materialistic and egotistic desires that cause you to indulge in extravagances that you later regret. On the other hand, if you are normally very reserved, conscientious, and “tight” about spending money, then this astrological influence may loosen you up a little more, inclining you to purchase items of high quality that you will enjoy for many years to come.

Transiting Uranus opposite Natal Jupiter

Daily concerns and worries fade during this time period, and you become motivated by the need to become free of restrictions, obligations, and responsibilities. Even if you do not consciously recognize that this need for freedom is at work, you will find yourself distancing yourself from others that restrict your freedom, investigating alternative life styles that allow greater flexibility and freedom in your life, or perhaps even considering get-rich-quick schemes that would free you from the demands of your current job. Depending on your current situation, the move to greater freedom can take many forms. You may quit your job, go into business for yourself, speculate in a grand venture, or break up a relationship. In one way or another, this is a time when you seek to become free of obligations and restrictions in your life.

It is likely that opportunities for making big changes will occur suddenly, with little advance notice. Consequently you have little time to fully consider the issues and you may be undecided as to whether to make a big move now or not. Unfortunately, I cannot answer that question definitively, but here are some guidelines that may help. If you leave your job or distance yourself from another person, be open and sympathetic to others during this process. You have a tendency now to go merrily on your way, not realizing that you may be hurting someone’s feelings or leaving people who depended on you without adequate replacement. Also, do not jump into a venture that is full of grandiose exaggerations and hyped-up claims. This is certainly the time when you may receive a wonderful offer or a big breakthrough of some kind, but you can just as easily be overwhelmed by exaggerations and unrealistic optimism. It is up to you to be able to distinguish the difference between a pipe dream and a genuinely sound opportunity.

Transiting Uranus square Natal Jupiter

A need for excitement, adventure, and fun pervades this time period. Exciting outdoor activities appeal to you now. Ski trips, canoe rides, softball, tennis, swimming, or camping appeal to you now, depending on your tastes and the season. Parties and get-togethers of all sorts appeal to you too. This is the time to loosen up and be informal and adventurous. If your work is exciting and full of surprises, you may not feel a need to get away from your usual routine now. But if your work is tedious and dull, you will find your attention drifting away from the matters at hand and into exciting fantasies. If this happens, then break out of your rut and start a little adventure!

Although this is a wonderful time for fun and frolic, it tends to be a bad time for making decisions on important, serious personal matters. You tend to be overly optimistic, inclined to exaggerated hopes, impulsive and impatient, and inclined to overlook practical details. You fail to thoroughly assess a situation and will jump into something on blind faith. You are also inclined to spend money rather wildly too. Interestingly, you actually do have a little bit of extra good luck now and unusually good opportunities may come your way, but you must be careful not to exaggerate the potential of a new idea or venture. Be careful not to throw your security (savings, home, insurance, etc.) to the wind in an impulsive act of blind faith.

Transiting Uranus trine Natal Jupiter

The astrological influence at work now is so positive and beneficial that you are almost guaranteed of having some major improvements in your overall life during this time period! These improvements bring greater freedom of expression. You are released from some of the tedium, rigidity, and stifling requirements of your current life style. Opportunities to do the things that you really want to do arise. You may receive a job offer that provides you increased income or more interesting and exciting work. A promotion or windfall may relieve you of some financial burdens. In one way or another, this is a time when you feel liberated from limiting circumstances.

But don’t just sit and wait for your ship to come in. You may hear about opportunities and possibilities at this time and wonder whether you should take the time to look into them. Don’t overlook any opportunity that comes your way now because at this time it is more likely to prove worthwhile that at most other times.

This is an upbeat time. Your spirits are high and you are enthusiastic about life. Circumstances work out fortunately and harmoniously.

Transiting Uranus sextile Natal Jupiter

Enthusiasm and progress are the key issues for this time period. You will find that others who normally resist your suggestions are now more receptive and supportive. Organizations, businesses, and government agencies also respond favorably to your suggestions and proposals. Life seems less of a struggle now, and doors that may have been closed to you for some time can open rather easily now. This is a good time for any organizational activities, as well as personal ventures. Negotiations and agreements entered into now are likely to turn out very favorably in the long run.

You project yourself well at this time. You are cheerful and enthusiastic, and others join in the lighthearted and optimistic mood that you are usually in. There is lots of time for relaxation and doing things that you normally do not have the time for. Take advantage of your free time and available resources to enrich your life, learn, experience new areas, and simply enjoy yourself. This is a wonderful time to get outdoors, explore, and enjoy invigorating activities.

Transiting Uranus quincunx Natal Jupiter

There will be surprises and unexpected events in your life at this time! Offers of new opportunities will be presented to you, and you are inclined to be overly optimistic about the possibilities at first. There are, in fact, some excellent opportunities for you at this time, but they require delicate handling and careful evaluation. You need to analyze the situation carefully and fix the weak spots. For example, an opportunity for a new job, new home, new car, or new relationship will come to you. Check it out carefully and realize that if you make the change, you will be adjusting to a very new situation. You will need to negotiate some details and you should consult with experts to make sure that you haven’t overlooked anything. If handled carefully, you can make improvements now that free you from some of the limitations that you currently experience. If you gamble at this time, you will experience ups and downs and an unpredictable final outcome but, if you are careful, the final outcome should be positive.

Transiting Uranus conjunct Natal Saturn

Upsets and unexpected changes in your life style and daily routine occur now! This is the time when the “dead wood” gets cleared out of your life. Old habits and cherished routines that no longer serve you well are suddenly questioned, discarded, or radically altered. It is difficult to predict exactly what aspects of your life will change. You may move, change jobs, end relationships, or change personal interests and habits such as religion, life style, or personal tastes and preferences. The changes that occur now are the combined result of changes in your own attitudes and values, as well as changing circumstances in your environment that are not directly under your control. What makes these changes so significant is that they are in areas in which you have had great stability and steadiness. For example, a person who has lived in one place for 15 or 20 years may move, someone who has worked in a particular line of work may break into a new field, or a break from one’s religious upbringing or from a close friend can occur. For some people the changes are more under the person’s control than for other people. For example, one person may quit his job while another one is fired. In either case, a major change occurs but the process is different.

Because the changes affect deeply rooted, habitual patterns in your life, they are typically accompanied with a lot of uncertainty and doubt. Ideals, beliefs, ethical values, and commitments that you have rigidly adhered to are now threatened. Areas in which you have been too inflexible are revealed, and you must be willing to break free of old, restraining beliefs and obligations. At this time you tend to vacillate between trying to maintain the status quo and making radical, rebellious moves that disregard all sense of propriety and ignore the important commitments that cannot be so easily dissolved. Try to clearly distinguish the old and useless from the valuable, rather than vacillate between complete abandonment of or complete adherence to the old habits.

Transiting Uranus opposite Natal Saturn

This time period is likely to be one of considerable stress, surprises, disappointments, and tensions. Your children, spouse, colleagues or employees may rebel against you, or you may find yourself rebelling against others. At this point in your life, you simply don’t want to feel dominated by anyone. You are also quick to see the requests that others make of you as unreasonable demands. You feel like you’ve paid your dues, and deserve a break. However, your sense of responsibility still nags at you so you find yourself accommodating the needs of others when you really want to be doing something else. You may find yourself doing lots of chores for the family, putting in lots of hours at work, etc., but starting to feel very uncomfortable and perhaps even feeling manipulated or taken advantage of by others. Actually, it is your own conflict between your sense of responsibility and your need for freedom that causes most of your problems now.

You need to get away from your daily routine for short periods to get a perspective on your life and let yourself feel less confined. A sense of freedom is extremely important to you now. If it is difficult for you to make extra time in your life, then try to manage at least a day now and then to simply do the things that you really enjoy doing at the pace you like to do them. If you try to cope with daily tensions and pressures for too long during this time period, you will become very wired up, tense, and perhaps physically ill as well.

Be wary of a tendency to be overly submissive or rebellious at this time. Try to be honest and reasonable, without creating antagonisms with others.

If you find yourself getting a little tense, then exercise, massage, avoiding hectic environments, and plenty of rest will help you unwind.

Transiting Uranus square Natal Saturn

This is a difficult time period. Many things simply refuse to go the way you planned them. Things have a way of running their own course, regardless of your plans or intentions. Disturbances, annoyances, and interruptions make it difficult for you to stick to your schedule. Life can easily become hectic and disorganized. Unexpected company may arrive at your home, or your neighbor may decide to play his stereo loudly while you are trying to relax and rest. Little things that interfere with your efforts are very irritating to you now. For example, you may be on a diet and find yourself in a situation where you feel obligated to indulge in high-calorie foods.

One important piece of advice to help things run more smoothly is simply to allow yourself to experiment with new patterns and routines in your life at this time. This is not a good time to steadfastly pursue disciplines. Now is the time to allow yourself to temporarily break out of your familiar molds and experiment with some new ones. It won’t kill you to break your deeply ingrained habits or schedules for a while; in fact, it can be quite good for you in the long run. If you stubbornly resist adapting to changes of pace and style, you will feel very tense and stressed. You need not throw out the things that are important to you, and you may be overly concerned that stability and security will never return if you let things go now, but you must have trust in your ability to break the normal routine a little, and return to a normal routine later. By loosening your grip on your habits, you can bring in new inspiration and insight. This is easier said than done, however, and during this time period you must carefully try to be flexible and adaptable, while not becoming so disorganized that you lose sight of your commitments and goals.

Transiting Uranus trine Natal Saturn

Release from restrictive circumstances and pressures is the key issue of this time period. Obligations and responsibilities are not so demanding now, and you are able to enjoy a greater level of freedom in your daily life. A loan or mortgage may be paid off, a domineering person in your work place may leave, or a deadline for a project may be pushed back or the project may be completed.

The release from restrictions is also evident in changes in yourself as well as changes in your external situation. Any principles and ethics that you have been adhering to rigidly and dogmatically are likely to loosen up. You become more flexible and responsive to life. You may be too proud to admit that some of your cherished, long-term principles do not seem as important to you now, but it is important to swallow pride and let yourself grow and adapt to new ideas, interests, and attitudes. This time period can be compared to a snake shedding its skin; it is a natural process of letting the old habits and attitudes die away and letting new ones replace them. The process is relatively painless at this time, but you will inhibit the process if you are afraid of anything new and unfamiliar.

If you have technical expertise in some area, you will find that you are able to work with greater freedom of expression now. Rather than follow the rules and procedures as usual, you now introduce greater variety of styles and more originality into your work. For example, musicians and artists during this time period will experiment with different styles and approaches. A jazz musician, for example, may start working with classical music or vice versa. New “hybrids” of these various styles can coalesce into a refreshing, new approach. This new creative expression is largely due to the fact that you are now less bound to your old habits and ways of doing things, and you are more flexible and adaptable and more responsive to different ideas.

Transiting Uranus sextile Natal Saturn

You are less rigid in your attitudes to others now. Various stereotypes or prejudices that you have are chipped away during this time period. You are likely to have interactions with people of various political persuasions, religious faiths, or life styles that show you that your rigid categories and classifications are not always appropriate. Now is the time when you can become more responsive to actual situations and conditions rather than to your rigid image of them. You are better able to see some good even in the worst people and, on the other hand, to see some bad in people that you idolize. Even if you consider yourself to be a very liberal, unbiased person, you will probably still react negatively to certain classes of people, such as those with opposing political affiliations, conservatives, for example. Now is the time to break down these crystallized attitudes and ideas.

This increased flexibility and responsiveness develops rather easily now, and consequently this is a very positive time. You feel less restricted and confined by circumstances in your life.

Because you are less rigid and dogmatic in your approach now, you are also able to work more effectively with people or organizations that you have had difficulty with before. If you are involved in a relationship where one person feels stifled or dominated by the other, now is a good time to focus energy on resolving this problem and gaining a better mutual respect for each other. This is also a good time for business relations and any interaction with government agencies and organizations. Progress can be made more easily now since there is less bureaucratic inefficiency and more responsiveness to the immediate needs and concerns that require attention.

Transiting Uranus quincunx Natal Saturn

At this time you are apt to feel that the rug is being pulled out from under your feet, and a great deal of internal stress and tension is generated between choosing to stick with what you know versus striking out in a new direction. The trouble is, you don’t have much choice or control in the matter, and yet you do not want to completely let go. The old order is inevitably disintegrating and the old vehicles no longer take you where you need to go. Avoid precipitous action if possible, or a radical solution to a long-standing problem. Instead, take calculated risks and create original alternatives which take the history of the current challenge into account. Bitter rebelliousness will get you nowhere!@

Transiting Uranus conjunct Natal Uranus

This astrological influence can occur only during the first 2 years of life or when you are 81 – 87 years old. For a newborn, this astrological influence indicates that there is lots of excitement and adaptation to the baby’s birth. Typically, this activity is normal and nothing to be very concerned about. However, if there are major changes (move to a new home, starting preschool, erupting problems between parents) during this time, the parents should be especially careful to ensure that the home environment is secure and stable or else the baby can become a bit overexcited and overstimulated at this time.

If you are in your 80’s, then you have reached a point where you are starting fresh again. Even if you retired earlier, you may find that you now have even more freedom than you have had since your retirement. This is a time for rejuvenation and awakening new creativity and interests. The old adage that one is never too old to start fresh and learn new things applies to this time period. Now is the time to consider new leisure activities, projects, interests, or pursuits that you previously have not had time for or not made a priority in your life.

Transiting Uranus opposite Natal Uranus

This astrological influence occurs some time between the ages of 38 and 46, and occurs only once in your lifetime. You have reached a kind of halfway point in your career and pursuits, and you seek a high level of freedom and creativity in your life. This is an excellent time to begin incorporating creative elements into your life that you previously have not had the time for. You may also decide to quit your job and go into business for yourself, or you may seek employment that provides greater creativity, freedom, or more vacation time. You may decide to spend more time doing the things you enjoy, rather than always being busy trying to compete and struggle in life.

If you feel that opportunities are not available to you to live a more creative, exciting life and you still are struggling with pressures, responsibilities and demands to just pay your bills, you are likely to go through a mild crisis now. Don’t be too hard on yourself and keep in mind that sometimes subtle changes in your life style and attitudes can bring about significant improvements in your life. You may be tempted to toss everything out the window and start over. For some people this is a good idea, but for others it may result in losses that are later regretted. You must decide on the path that will best lead you to a life that is more personally rewarding, creative, and free of obstacles.

Transiting Uranus square Natal Uranus

This astrological influence occurs once during the late teens or early twenties and then again in the early to mid 60’s. In both cases, it is a time when you mature to a greater level of independence and self-reliance. The need to break from old, familiar surroundings and habits makes itself felt, and you must make the plunge into a bigger world than you previously have known. If you are around 20 years of age, a new job or move from home may occur now. Your external situation may not change, but you may feel rebellious and ready to make some new changes in your life. If you are in your 60’s, then retirement or the end of some responsibilities and obligations may provide you the opportunity to be more creative and independent. At either age, these changes tend to be difficult and stressful. Make the necessary changes and go forward. Seek creative solutions and do not add to the stress by being anxious, fearful, or unnecessarily rebellious and disruptive.

Transiting Uranus trine Natal Uranus

This astrological influence occurs twice in a lifetime, at age 25 – 31 and again at age 54 – 59. During this time period, changes occur in your life that provide you greater freedom and self-expression. You are exposed to new ideas and new environments that offer alternatives to your accustomed beliefs and habits. For example, you grow into a new social circle of friends and acquaintances that is more progressive than the people you usually associate with. You may accept a new job or shift into a new line of work that provides you greater freedom or creative outlets. In various ways, this is a time period of venturing into new territories and leaving the old terrain behind you. Because these changes are relatively smooth and gradual, you may not realize how significant they are.

Transiting Uranus sextile Natal Uranus

This astrological influence occurs twice in a lifetime, at age 12 – 16 and again at age 67 – 73. At either age, this is a time when you become more independent and self-reliant.

At age 14 it is a time when you make a big step in becoming less dependent on your parents and learn to depend more on yourself. The teenage years are often a turbulent and difficult period of transition, but during this time period you are able to make the transition a little more smoothly than usual. You will find that at this time, you are better able to communicate with parents about your needs for independence and make important steps to becoming more self-reliant.

At age 70 this is a time of discovering new interests, increased enthusiasm for creative activities, and a sense of freedom and enjoyment of life. This is an excellent time to involve yourself in the things that you really enjoy. Make a habit of it so it lasts even after this astrological influence is over!@

Transiting Uranus quincunx Natal Uranus

Inconsistency and instability characterize this time period. You may feel strangely disoriented for a while. You are detaching, changing, and hopefully opening yourself up to new directions and inspiration. However, nervous tension, anxiety about the state of flux in your life, and an overall feeling of not quite being able to get your bearings may trouble you considerably. Realize you do not have to do everything at once and that you do have the capacity to adapt to the new. Although you may not be completely organized, you are more open than ever to a liberation of your mind and spirit. Contact with the earth and with nature can calm you considerably.

Transiting Uranus conjunct Natal Neptune

Heightened imagination and increased psychic sensitivity are key issues during this time period. You gravitate towards anything unusual, imaginative, and fantastic now. You are likely to watch a lot more movies than usual and also read more fantasy or science fiction. The bizarre and unusual appeal to you now, and you have a childlike sense of awe and wonder. Like a child, you may find yourself enthralled by a cartoon or enjoy yourself at a circus!

Mundane matters are too tedious and boring now, and you frequently escape to the more exciting world of fantasy and imagination. If you have an inclination to drink to excess or use drugs, then you must be very careful during this time period! Your imagination is already extremely active and mind-altering substances may bring you some insights and entertainment, but are also likely to cause you to lose your sense of proportion, balance, and clarity. You can become seriously disoriented and confused at this time.

Interest in metaphysical topics, psychic experiences, and clairvoyance is keen now. Even if you are normally very pragmatic and have little interest in mystical, spiritual, or psychic topics, you will be more receptive now. In fact, regardless of your previous degree of psychic sensitivity and awareness, you may have a significant clairvoyant experience during this time period. A major problem, however, is that you are rather indiscriminate and, consequently, you may pursue psychic interests of a low, cheap, immature, or negative type.

In short, this is the time to awaken your sensitivity and imagination, but do so in a healthy, constructive manner.

Transiting Uranus opposite Natal Neptune

Your imagination and psychic sensitivity are extremely high now. You are inspired by high ideals, dreams, visions, and fantasies. In fact, you are so sensitive now that you may have a significant clairvoyant experience, even if you don’t believe in such things! However, be careful about making important decisions based on your intuition now because your discrimination of practical matters is clouded by the ideals and dreams that you project on the world. You can easily be deceived by another person or deluded by your own fantasies. Oddly enough, while your psychic sensitivity is improved, your ability to apply your sensitivity to practical issues is worse than usual.

If you have any tendency to use drugs or drink to excess, be extremely careful now because you are prone to mind-altered states even without using substances! Even a drug used for medical purposes can precipitate a very disoriented and confused state of mind.

Fantasy appeals to you very strongly now. You are also likely to watch many movies and engage in other forms of imaginative entertainments and distractions from mundane affairs.

Transiting Uranus square Natal Neptune

Sudden intuitions and dreams grip you with an urgency now that can be very disorienting and confusing. During this time period, you will periodically feel the need to escape from your daily routine and immerse yourself in a more magical, awe-inspiring world. This is an excellent time to take an exotic vacation or visit an inspiring place. You are also likely to find yourself reading fantasy and watching many movies as a way to escape from practical affairs and experience a more imaginative and exciting world.

Be very careful when making any major decisions at this time. You are driven more by your fantasies than you realize, and you are prone to make sudden, impulsive decisions that you can regret later because they are neither practical nor feasible. You are at a low point in your ability to handle practical affairs. This is the time for stimulating your imagination and spiritual aspirations, not for effectively dealing with practical affairs.

If you have any tendency to drink to excess, use drugs, or be unstable psychically or emotionally, then be very careful during this time period. You can easily slip into a disoriented and confused state of mind. Even drugs used for medical purposes may cause you to become seriously disoriented and confused.

Transiting Uranus trine Natal Neptune

Inspiration, increased imagination, and rejuvenation of spiritual ideals are key issues now. Your imagination and intuition are very keen now. If you are involved in an imaginative area such as art, music, theater, or writing fiction, you will find that fresh, new insights and creative inspirations give added zest and originality to your work. Whether you are directly involved in these areas or not, you will encounter imaginative works that inspire and uplift you now.

Your sense of awe and wonder expands now, allowing you to appreciate life to a greater extent. You also encounter inspiring people and places that reinforce your sense of the magic and mystery of life. Your religious and spiritual interests are revitalized and rejuvenated now too. You may attend a spiritual retreat or workshop that inspires you to pursue your ideals and visions with greater gusto. In short, this time period is a positive one, in which your ideals, imagination, and sensitivity are awakened and uplifted.

Transiting Uranus sextile Natal Neptune

A heightened imagination and psychic sensitivity make this time period inspiring and interesting for you. You are likely to encounter works of art and music that are unusually stimulating and inspiring. If you engage in artistic creativity yourself, you will find fresh, original, and unusual inspirations adding new dimensions to your work.

Your religious inclinations and spiritual aspirations are uplifted now also. You may attend a spiritual retreat or workshop that is particularly inspiring, or you may see a movie or read a book that deepens your sense of spiritual purpose, guidance, and presence. Take advantage of this time period to inspire your ideals and awaken your imagination.

Transiting Uranus quincunx Natal Neptune

Sudden revelations, altered states of consciousness, awakenings, or bursts of spiritual enthusiasm and inspiration are indicated now. You may feel overly sensitized to your environment, unusually discontented with the mundane aspects of your life, or just plain confused at times. You feel as if you are in transition, yet the changes are elusive. Avoid mind-altering or mood-altering substances now; they can further imbalance you. Also, you tend towards extremes in spiritual matters at present. Cultivate a sense of balance and proportion.

Transiting Uranus conjunct Natal Pluto

Impatience and fanaticism are the key issues for this time period. You feel the need to reform your life overnight. You are quick to see your own bad habits, insincerities, and superficialities and you are determined to be rid of them. You are ready for a new “you” to come out. You may start an exercise regimen or diet, change your hair style or dress, be more aggressive at work, or be more forthright with others. You are likely to get on a bandwagon for social causes and issues and be outspoken about your political views. In short, you are in an uncompromising mood and are unwilling to “play the game” to get ahead. You are ready to call everyone’s cards, including your own. You strike to the core of any issue now; you simply do not have the patience to beat around the bush.

Your impatience and zeal can be explosive. Your abrupt, candid, or possibly tactless actions and speech can easily create enemies for you now. It’s fine to be tough on yourself now but try to refrain from being abrasive and inconsiderate to others.

This is the time to break old molds and make new ones. You are likely to dredge up confusions, fears, and anxieties from your childhood that have been unconsciously affecting your life. You also see more clearly the personal ambitions, ego trips, and insincerities that warp the purposes and direction of organizations, businesses, and governments. You are in a reforming spirit, and now is the time to forcefully and quickly make changes that air out and release the old ways and bring in the new.

Transiting Uranus opposite Natal Pluto

Your close relationships with others undergo some abrupt changes at this time. The driving force behind these changes is your impatient, demanding need to achieve greater sincerity, honesty, and understanding between you and others. In a marriage or love relationship, you are likely to bring up jealousies and hurt feelings from events that occurred quite a long time ago. You feel the need to air out and clear your feelings and to stop hiding things from each other. If you feel that the other person is unapproachable on these topics or that you simply don’t have the courage to bring them up, the feelings will brew and seethe, and you will vent your feelings by being bossy, impatient, demanding, and angry with the other person. You will blame your partner for various problems in your life, rather than admit that you have quite a lot to do with your problems as well!

You are in a reforming spirit now. Impatient and unwilling to compromise, you are quick to see the flaws, insincerities, ego trips, and personal ambitions that warp the functioning of organizations, businesses, and governments. You are likely to find yourself being forthright and direct about political and social issues, expressing yourself with emotion and conviction. You simply do not have the patience to allow important issues to be glossed over, ignored, or distorted. You also pursue your own personal goals and career now with greater dedication, conviction, and honesty. One warning: do not be too tactless and strident in your dealings with others. You tend to express yourself in a manner that polarizes you against others and causes others to feel like adversaries. A tactful and harmonious style will usually better achieve your goals without compromising your message.

Now is the time to break old habits and start new ones. Be careful, however, in making major career decisions or business agreements. Because this is an unstable time with lots of changes, it is often better to wait until things settle down more and the best alternatives can be better discerned.

Transiting Uranus square Natal Pluto

Periodic, sudden fits of impatience and dissatisfaction with the current state of affairs in your life make this time period a difficult, unpredictable one. Sometimes life seems to be proceeding at much too slow a pace for you, and you may try to force improvements and changes prematurely. At other times life becomes so hectic that you wish you could slow everything down. There are lots of changes now and your life is in a state of flux.

You are in a reforming spirit, and you may be tempted to make drastic changes in your life. You have little tolerance now for mediocre situations and superficial involvements. If your job does not seem really meaningful and consonant with your deepest motivations and drives, you may quit and look for something else. You also tend to be abrupt and tactless with others. Your impatience can erupt as sudden flashes of anger.

Deep, inner drives and hidden feelings erupt suddenly and unexpectedly now. You become more aware of experiences in your childhood and the subconscious drives that affect your life. Increased clarity and depth of perception of yourself can liberate you to pursue your goals with greater dedication and intensity now. In fact, you are inclined to be rather fanatical and you should be careful to avoid forcing your ideas and will on others.

This is a time to make sudden changes in attitude and orientation towards the world. Be careful when making major career decisions or business agreements now, however, as your impatience and fanaticism can cause you to make decisions so quickly that you haven’t sufficiently thought through the details.

Transiting Uranus trine Natal Pluto

Increased enthusiasm, zeal, dedication, and sense of purpose make this time period one in which you make great strides towards achieving your goals. The progress and advancement made now has more to do with developing inner talents and confidence than with outer, tangible benefits such as increased salary, prestige, or recognition. Although improvements in your worldly situation may occur now, the emphasis is on tapping your deepest motivations and talents. You really tune into some of your unique talents and you can really blossom in your creative efforts.

Follow your instincts now because they are usually correct. You will feel an irresistible urge to incorporate new elements into your work, and you will spontaneously begin experimenting with ideas or subject material that previously has been foreign to you. The result of this new innovation is a much richer and more lively creative expression. Whether the activity is writing, painting, decorating, scientific investigation, or any other pursuit, you will find that you can pour more of yourself into your work and be more creative than ever before. This is the time to pour yourself into the things that are important to you; your very best work can be done now and you can accelerate your growth tremendously. The effects will also be felt as material benefits and tangible opportunities, but even more satisfying is the inner sense that you are progressing and growing in the areas that are really important to you.

Transiting Uranus sextile Natal Pluto

Your capacity to motivate, lead, and inspire others is particularly strong now. You are likely to be called upon to teach, direct, coach, or supervise others during this time period. You are also likely to find yourself participating in dynamic, positive group activities.

You are more confident, motivated, dynamic, and purposeful than usual. This is an excellent time to come before the public or be involved in a group effort. Business affairs are upbeat, progressive, and dynamic. You are filled with conviction and purpose, and this is a positive time of growth and jumping hurdles.

You are likely to experiment with ideas and materials that you normally avoid. This is the time to incorporate new elements into any creative work. Whether the pursuit is writing, painting, scientific research, business analysis, or any other area, you are more inventive and pour yourself into your work more fully now.

Transiting Uranus quincunx Natal Pluto

You feel the need to make radical adjustments in your life style at this time. Your patience wears thin, and anything that has been stifling you now becomes extremely annoying to you. This is a good time to shake yourself out of bad habits. A new inspiration can fill your life, and you have the motivation now to approach difficult areas in your life in a new way. However, avoid the tendency to try to make quick fixes to complex problems. You are tempted to simply abandon your commitments or join a new fad, craze, or enterprise that promises easy answers to issues that require more subtle, careful, and delicate handling. For example, there are important changes you can make in your career and relationships that require a new attitude and approach, and more effort on your part but you may be tempted to find a simplistic answer that will not improve your situation in the long run.

Transiting Uranus conjunct Natal Ascendant

During this time period, you cast off some of your old roles and adopt new ones. You take a fresh approach to life and your personality undergoes major changes. Your role and position in life now strikes you as limiting, and you experiment with new life styles. For example, you may decide to dress differently, change your hair style, or act in a more spontaneous, less conventional manner. You will find yourself tired of being “Bill the businessman”, “George the hippie”, “Sally the mother and housewife”, or “Jane the quiet, intelligent one”. Whatever image and role you play in life is likely to be shattered at this time. George the Hippie cuts his hair and Sally the mother takes a vacation to have time for herself.

Now is the time to break out of some of the molds that you have become accustomed to. Even if your role and position in life is natural and fulfilling to you, there is still the need to explore new attitudes, approaches, and styles now. Don’t hold back this impulse; if you try to refrain from making changes, you will find yourself becoming very restless and dissatisfied with your current situation.

This time period is an unstable one, and you may encounter some unexpected changes. It is possible that your life will not change dramatically, but the possibility of unexpected changes in career or family life often occur during this astrological influence. Be prepared for unexpected major changes if they arise.

Note that the precise timing of this astrological influence is very dependent on the exact birth time, so the dates given are accurate only if your birth time is very accurate.

Transiting Uranus opposite Natal Ascendant

Upsets and unexpected changes in relationships are extremely likely at this time.

In any close relationship, both people make many sacrifices for the benefit of the other person. If you have been making sacrifices begrudgingly and you feel that the demands of the relationship are unreasonable, then you will find it extremely difficult to cope with these obligations now. A free-spirited, independent streak arises in you, making you more selfish, independent, and unwilling to tolerate being stifled by another. You also rebel against others who are domineering or rigid in their way of dealing with other people.

Also, the reverse condition is equally strong. If you have been stifling another person or if you simply have taken the good will and assistance of another person for granted, you will find the other person rebelling against this state of affairs. The neglect or abuse that you heap on other people is no longer accepted and suddenly the relationship cannot go on in the same manner.

The need for freedom in relationships is very strong at this time. If either person becomes too self-centered and selfish, the relationship can weaken even if the other person tries to be understanding, tolerant, and reasonable.

Note that the precise timing of this astrological influence is very dependent on the exact birth time, so the dates given are accurate only if your birth time is very accurate.

Transiting Uranus square Natal Ascendant

Unexpected changes in your relationships and life in general occur at this time. You are not easily satisfied with things now; even if everything seems to be going along fine, you feel the need to stir things up. You would almost rather have an upset or crisis just for the excitement!

Underlying the changes that occur now is your need to break free from ingrained patterns in your life. You seek excitement and change rather than routine living. Relationships and patterns that have fallen into a comfortable niche are not enough for you now. Even if you are not aware of the need to make changes, they will occur anyway. An important relationship may break up, form, or undergo radical changes. You may change jobs or become part of a different circle of friends and acquaintances. This is certainly a time to experiment with anything new, but be careful about what you throw out because you can easily be gripped by the feeling of urgency in the moment, and later regret your decision.

Note that the precise timing of this astrological influence is very dependent on the exact birth time, so the dates given are accurate only if your birth time is very accurate.

Transiting Uranus trine Natal Ascendant

This is an upbeat, refreshing time period. Progressive changes in your life and relationships make this an enjoyable, exciting time. The changes are not likely to be extraordinary in scope, but a definite enlivening of your relationship to others and the world in general is evident. You meet people who are interesting and really alive. You are likely to visit places that inspire you, and you feel more excited about your daily life and the things you do. Most obvious is the change in relationships to others. Drab and dull interactions seem to evaporate as you find exciting ideas and interests to share. This is an excellent time to investigate new clubs, groups, or individuals that you previously have not taken the time to become familiar with. Creative hobbies or interests that you have forgotten about or never seriously considered before may also come into view now. Take advantage of this time period to make your life more interesting and stimulating.

Note that the precise timing of this astrological influence is very dependent on the exact birth time, so the dates given are accurate only if your birth time is very accurate.

Transiting Uranus sextile Natal Ascendant

You are less inhibited, more open and spontaneous than usual. You are likely to encounter people of many different walks of life, and discover new perspectives and interesting ideas from your interactions with others. This is a time when new and different people, situations, and circumstances arise that inspire and broaden your outlook. This is an excellent time to look into different groups, organizations, or clubs that you haven’t taken the time to familiarize yourself with or haven’t known about before. This is the time to explore and investigate new activities, people, and opportunities. Refreshing, inspiring encounters and discoveries are very likely.

Your relationships with others are also affected. If you are involved in a relationship that is stifling to one or both of you, then you will find at this time that you can free up the blockages and inhibitions much more easily than usual.

Note that the precise timing of this astrological influence is very dependent on the exact birth time, so the dates given are accurate only if your birth time is very accurate.

Transiting Uranus quincunx Natal Ascendant

The manner in which you present yourself and relate to others at this time may upset the status quo. You are remarkably more independent, rebellious, iconoclastic, or selfish. Impatient with endless compromising or accommodating others, you are apt to just do whatever you feel like doing! On the other hand, those in your immediate environment may be changing just as rapidly and forcing you to cope with some surprises or unexpected twists and turns. A general sense of excitement coupled with insecurity and uncertainty colors this entire time.

You suddenly may decide to relocate. Carefully check out this impulse because your discontent may not be eased by a change in locale. Relationships are prone to unreliability and breakups at this time, especially if you feel they are unduly restrictive.

Note that the precise timing of this astrological influence is very dependent on the exact birth time, so the dates given are accurate only if your birth time is very accurate.

Transiting Uranus conjunct Natal Midheaven

Freedom and independence are critically important to you at this time. If your job is tedious, boring, and unexciting, there is a strong possibility that you will quit your job now. Because the need for freedom and excitement is very strong, you are more willing to be innovative and daring. Interestingly, even if you do not attempt to make a change, it is likely that changes will occur anyway! You may get fired, promoted, or transferred. Unfortunately, it is difficult to predict the exact nature of the changes. What can be counted on is that changes in your career will occur during this time period and also perhaps extending several months beyond the time period specified above for this astrological influence. If your job is unexciting and uninspiring or your overall career direction is vague, then the probability of a major career change is even greater.

If you try to resist the impulse to make major changes in your career now, you will become very restless and dissatisfied with your life. With a little creative imagination and ingenuity, it is likely that you can make changes in your job and career that allow for much more creativity and freedom. If you decide to make a drastic move, like quitting your job, it is difficult to say whether you will regret the decision or not, as a great deal depends on how good your current job is and how well qualified and capable you are of developing a better alternative. This astrological influence creates the need for change and freedom, and it draws alternative situations to you. However, it does not indicate that the new alternatives are any better or worse than the previous situation.

Note that the precise timing of this astrological influence is very dependent on the exact birth time, so the dates given are accurate only if your birth time is very accurate.

Sudden changes and upsets are likely in your domestic life. If you are at all dissatisfied with your place of residence, it is likely that you will move at this time or make home improvements. If family members are not getting along well with each other, it is likely that this friction will erupt into a major explosion. Typically, someone decides to move out of the home. If the problem is with a child, then the child may “get into trouble” at school as a form of protest and expressing dissatisfaction.

The changes that occur now in your domestic life are symptomatic of a reorientation in your deepest attitudes and feelings, perhaps mostly at an unconscious level. This is a time when you break free from deeply ingrained habits. You may also investigate alternative cultures, religions, and life styles as a way to break free from your customs, traditions, and habits, and integrate new qualities into your life.

Note that the precise timing of this astrological influence is very dependent on the exact birth time, so the dates given are accurate only if your birth time is very accurate.

A feeling of impatience and a willingness to make bold, risky changes can cause you to suddenly alter the entire course of your life now. Periodically throughout this time period you get the urge to stir things up and inject fresh, new stimulation into your life. You may feel like it’s time to change your job, move, meet new people, break up old relationships, etc. In fact, it is highly likely that you will do at least some of these things, and others may happen even if you do not try. For example, you may receive a new job offer, find a new home, or be laid off from your job. This is a time to draw new inspiration and fresh ideas into both your career and family life. It is, indeed, time for some changes. Opportunities for discovering more creative ways of approaching life come to you now. It is a good time to experiment. Go to the kinds of restaurants you do not normally go to, try a sport you have never played before, take a new approach to your work, or visit places and people that you’ve thought about going to before but have been putting off. This is a time to break your typical, everyday habits and get a taste of something new.

If you do decide to make a drastic change such as take a new job or break up a relationship, make sure that you have thought through the situation well as you can make decisions impulsively now and consequently regret them later. On the other hand, do not allow mediocre or stifling situations to persist; now is the time to revitalize your life. Do try to see if revitalizing a job or relationship is possible before abandoning it.

Note that the precise timing of this astrological influence is very dependent on the exact birth time, so the dates given are accurate only if your birth time is very accurate.

Transiting Uranus trine Natal Midheaven

Exciting developments in your career make this time period a very positive one. A jolt of enthusiasm and vitality into your work picks up your spirits and gives you much to be excited about. Now is the time to seek out more creative outlets, more exciting and interesting work. If your current work is boring and tedious, now is the time when you can break free from this inertia. The improvements may come in the form of promotions that provide greater freedom and creativity, transfers to a more liberal and progressive area, or a complete job change. Search out opportunities for more interesting and exciting work because the benefits do not always fall in your lap. Sometimes the opportunities can be very close at hand if you just avail yourself to them.

This is a lively time for you when you discover new ideas and encounter situations that provide you with new perspectives and experiences. You will frequently feel the impulse to try something new, whether it be a sport you haven’t played before, a person or family you would like to get to know better, visiting a place you haven’t seen before, going to a new kind of restaurant, or learning about a subject area that is new for you. Whether seemingly insignificant or not, follow your impulse to explore new alternatives now because they open new doors.

Note that the precise timing of this astrological influence is very dependent on the exact birth time, so the dates given are accurate only if your birth time is very accurate.

Transiting Uranus sextile Natal Midheaven

Your job and career advance very nicely now. This is a positive time when you feel excited about the developments in your career. You are able to pour more of your creativity and your originality into what you do. If you have been feeling stifled by tedious and uninteresting tasks, now is the time when you can break free from these restrictions. Others will be more receptive to your suggestions. Also, seek out opportunities for a transfer, promotion, or even job change as this is a time when you can discover ways to revitalize your career and daily work. If your current job is creative and interesting, you will find that you are even more creative and inventive now, and new insights and contacts open doors for you.

You are also less self-conscious now and more willing to take risks. You don’t care as much what others think of you, and you don’t mind it if they think you are a bit strange. Consequently, you explore new areas and take risks that you normally would not take. This is an excellent time to do something that you have never done before, perhaps visit a place you haven’t seen, learn about a subject you have little knowledge of, make something, or play a sport you have never been involved with before.

In short, this is a positive time of creativity and greater spontaneity in both your personal and professional life.

Note that the precise timing of this astrological influence is very dependent on the exact birth time, so the dates given are accurate only if your birth time is very accurate.

Transiting Uranus quincunx Natal Midheaven

A change in your career or life path is indicated now. You will strike out in a new direction, pursue alternatives or the fringe elements in your field, and you could become something of a rogue. Independence, freedom from historical or traditional forms and norms, and finding a unique way to attain your personal goals are emphasized.

You may also find that you are being pushed to grow and, like a young bird trying its wings for the first time, feel both immense insecurity and soaring exhilaration. Changing times require new adjustments in many areas of life, especially in your attitude towards advancement in your life’s work.

Note that the precise timing of this astrological influence is very dependent on the exact birth time, so the dates given are accurate only if your birth time is very accurate.

Transiting Uranus conjunct Natal Ceres

Personal and family issues regarding nurturing, health care, and involvements with children are accented now. Your daily routine and responsibilities in relationships may be subject to changes and disruptions during this period. You might feel urges to have more freedom and mobility in your role as friend, lover, parent, or caretaker, as well as less dependency on other people to provide you with nurturing. A more liberal attitude toward your domestic and child-rearing responsibilities could either help foster independence and autonomy for family members or could erode their sense of security and stability in the home environment. You would need to make sure you respect the desires and personal needs of people whom you have emotional ties with in order to bring about positive changes now. You may also feel like indulging in personal interests and aspirations outside a primary relationship or detach yourself from some of your daily domestic affairs at this time. Similarly, this may liberate you from emotional dependencies on others and prove significant to your personal growth and happiness. In some instances, unusual or unexpected happenings and upheavals beyond your control may necessitate that you relinquish certain emotional attachments or traditional ways of nurturing loved ones, mainly to allow for progressive change to occur. Also, an unplanned or unexpected pregnancy, family members leaving or returning to the home, as well as behavioral changes in children are possible situations which may alter the status quo in your domestic world.

Transiting Uranus opposite Natal Ceres

Existing family and love affairs are subject to unsettling or disturbing conditions at this time. You may feel a desire to change the rules and traditional routines in your domestic or romantic life, due to a nagging sense that you have either outgrown or need to reform certain attitudes and behaviors. You might want to completely remove yourself from personal attachments and role-playing which involve heavy emotional dependencies and restrictions to your freedom and autonomy. Relationships which are stifling or dull will either need to be injected with newness and excitement or you will be tempted to abandon them for greener pastures. You may become involved in new interests outside your home and love life which makes loved ones feel you are unavailable, unreliable, or unpredictable toward supplying them with emotional support and nurturing. If you have children, one in particular may be temperamental and rebellious during this period or in greater need of your care, involvement, and concern.

Transiting Uranus square Natal Ceres

Self-discovery, independence, and autonomy may be key issues in your love or domestic relationships at this time. You might both need and desire to be free from burdens, restrictions, and responsibilities that infringe upon your personal space and time. You are also less likely to be dependent upon others for emotional support and nurturing, or unusual or unexpected developments occur now which necessitates that you become more self-reliant in this regard. The care, nourishment, protection, and concern you give to family members and loved ones may also come across as erratic, inconsistent, and highly impersonal at this time. Sudden shifts or deviations in your behavior and attitudes, such as one minute being loving and the next minute demonstrating detachment or disinterest, will be the cause of conflict and tensions in your family and love affairs. Disruption of the traditional routines and activities in your home environment can also occur at this time. Unavoidable changes, such as sudden reversals in your role as provider and caretaker, an unplanned pregnancy, new responsibilities for children or a parent which limits your personal freedom, or unusual behavior on the part of loved ones are possibilities during this period.

Transiting Uranus trine Natal Ceres

At this time you may experience liberating changes which allow you greater self-sufficiency and freedom in your close personal relationships. The personal needs and affairs of family members, children, and loved ones are less likely to feel burdensome and restricting to you. Similarly, this period can provide you with much needed relief on both emotional and mental levels. Domestic conditions may improve in other ways also, such as discovering new insights into problems or clearing away old routine chores to allow more time for personal interests. Or possibly you will find family members and friends supporting your efforts without getting in the way. You might try to adjust to traditional family structures and rituals. However, you would probably prefer to seek out new and exciting experiences to share with loved ones. Children’s interests, family gatherings, and spending time with close friends will appeal to you now.

Transiting Uranus sextile Natal Ceres

During this time you may seek ways to refresh and stimulate your love and domestic relationships. You may relate to loved ones in a more liberal and carefree manner. In addition, you tend to encourage your children, mate, or family members to search for ways to express their individuality and independence. It is likely you will find it easier to reform or change certain routines, responsibilities, and obligations which infringe on your own personal time, as well. This is also a good time to eliminate emotional dependencies or unhealthy and smothering behavior in your relationships.

Transiting Uranus quincunx Natal Ceres

Domestic relationships may be under some strain during this period. The plans and activities of children and family members or your obligations to them could interfere with your own personal interests or friendships. You may want the liberty to do as you please and begin to look for ways to get out from under current responsibilities in domestic or love relationships. Sporadic doses of love, concern, and nurturing can also be making your significant relationships feel quite unstable now. This period can also indicate times when unexpected changes, unusual happenings, disruptions of plans, or sudden separations arise which lead you to make some rather difficult choices or reforms in your personal relationships and home environment. You might have to compromise and make the necessary adjustments to strike a balance between the heartfelt desires of loved ones and your own hopes and wishes.

Transiting Uranus conjunct Natal Pallas

At this time you may develop new and original concepts, patterns, plans, and ideas, mostly centering around your mental/intellectual activities or creative and business endeavors. Boring or routine and repetitive tasks are eliminated or updated, as you may feel they are too restrictive or unsuitable for future application. This is a time to make new discoveries and apply innovation, creativity, and imagination in your pursuits and undertakings. Relationships or joint partnerships with others may undergo changes during this period. Cooperative efforts are favorable if they allow you room for personal development and independence; otherwise, they are subject to sudden and abrupt breaks. You may lose interest in people in your life who are incapable of keeping up with your new ideas and progressive changes. Similarly, you are more apt to form new alliances with individuals who provide you with mental and creative stimulation. You may be attracted to partnerships or relationships which are unusual or unconventional or with people from a different background or upbringing from your own.

Transiting Uranus opposite Natal Pallas

Nervous tension and mental stress may accompany this time period. There may be experiences of an unusual or frustrating nature surrounding friendships or business and creative endeavors. Plans and objectives may suddenly backfire or be disrupted by unexpected changes and modifications. You may also feel uncomfortable in social, business, personal, or group involvements which have rigid structures or infringe upon your intellectual, creative, or individual freedom. Sudden changes of mind, irrational thoughts and behavior, or a clear lack of tact and diplomacy when dealing with others may create complications in personal and professional partnerships.

Transiting Uranus square Natal Pallas

Your mental and creative energies are apt to feel unstable and restless. You must use caution and forethought in all matters of social, business, intellectual, and creative interests at this time. You may be inclined to waste your concentrative and perceptive abilities on far-out schemes, plans, and objectives. Similarly, you might have some unusual ideas and concepts which you are unable to practically achieve or which makes you feel misunderstood or out-of-place in personal, social, and group involvements. A restless mentality and temperament may cause you to behave in tactless or unpredictable ways with the people in your personal, professional, or social environment.

Transiting Uranus trine Natal Pallas

You might like to begin a new business or an intellectual, educational, or creative adventure now. Your mind may be stimulated by fresh ideas, new concepts, and insightful strategies, and this can prove a favorable period to set your sights on a purpose or objective you desire to achieve. Mental and creative energies may flow easily and freely. You may discover an unusual way to accentuate your talents or you may update your concern for social and group involvement. Sharing your thoughts or insights with friends and acquaintances may be very beneficial at this time. During this period, you might also have uncanny, yet very accurate, perceptions and intuitive feelings about the people, places, and things in your environment.

Transiting Uranus sextile Natal Pallas

Mental, creative, and intuitive awareness is accented during this period. This is a favorable time to discover unique and unusual ideas and approaches for making improvements in your problem-solving, creative endeavors, or intellectual pursuits. Activities connected with friendships, groups, or social concerns can involve brainstorming sessions, net-working, drawing up new plans and strategies, or linking up with others in a special interest, such as taking a class in art or business or in an academic or creative field. In your private life, loved ones and friends may be drawn to you for inspiration, guidance, and wisdom at this time.

Transiting Uranus quincunx Natal Pallas

You may have to guard against errors of judgment, impulsive decision-making, and tactless behavior in personal, social, and business involvements. Your perceptive abilities may be inaccurate and unreliable, leading you to jump to conclusions or be prone to illogical thoughts. Flaws or weaknesses in your ideas, schemes, plans, and objectives are subject to exposure now. A nervous temperament may accompany this time period, and you may demonstrate periodic outbursts of rebellion from anything or anyone who imposes upon your hopes, wishes, and goals. You must examine your ideas and opinions to make certain they have practical merit and present them to others in a diplomatic and cooperative manner at this time.

Transiting Uranus conjunct Natal Juno

Marital and love relationships may undergo a few challenges at this time. There may be a need for more independence and personal space in your love life or marriage. However, you still must try to maintain fairness and allegiance to your partner. If you are married or committed to someone and they allow you sufficient amounts of freedom, you may become a very stimulating and exciting companion during this period. You could introduce your mate to new interests, fun experiences, or social concerns or simply give them more opportunities to enjoy personal activities and friendships outside of the marriage or union. If, however, your personal freedom is restricted within the confines of your relationship, you may feel suffocated and are apt to behave in a rather fickle or rebellious way at this time. You could display your discomfort through flirtations, inconsiderate acts, or erratic behavior. You might risk sacrificing some of the security and closeness with your partner if you don’t try to make compromises and refuse to give your full cooperation to the relationship.

Transiting Uranus opposite Natal Juno

You may be hesitant and indecisive over marital or love relationship issues at this time. You may find companionship, friendship, and intimacy appealing, yet, on the other hand, a restless urge for personal freedom may be blossoming. If you are married or committed to someone, you could bewilder or unhinge your partner by fluctuating back and forth between closeness and independence. Fair play, cooperation, and emotional rapport may be way off balance in your relationship during this period. You are likely to be more insistent on having your own way, even if it means deviating from established patterns and standards in your partnership. If your marriage or love relationship is important to you, then you must be open and honest about your feelings, motives, and intentions. When you feel an urge for more excitement and stimulation, perhaps sharing an activity that you both enjoy or having a new adventure with your mate may ease your restlessness at this time.

Transiting Uranus square Natal Juno

Companionship versus personal freedom may be uncomfortable issues in a marital or long-standing love relationship at this time. Whether this problem is your own internal struggle or that of a partner, changes in the relationship may be indicated now. Conflicts with your partner over these matters might lead to breakdowns in affections, closeness, or in issues of trust and sharing. If you are honest and express your feelings with sincerity, it may help you ride over some of the rough spots in the relationship. You may need to develop a new understanding with your partner or deepen your appreciation for this individual in order to resolve any difficulties at this time.

Transiting Uranus trine Natal Juno

You may wish to bring more fairness and equality into a marriage or significant love relationship at this time. You may feel less intimidated if your partner has personal needs outside of your commitments to each other. You might relate to your loved one in a more trusting, understanding, and cooperative manner, especially when identifying with the need for personal space and freedom within the relationship. This can be a very favorable time to share new interests, ideas, and social adventures with your partner. Changing routines and doing something different will help alleviate boredom now.

Transiting Uranus sextile Natal Juno

New and enjoyable experiences can be had through social, romantic, and leisure activities shared with a spouse or significant other during this period.
