I've had Uranus in my sixth for ages, and man, it's a pain in the ass.
"Some of you may think that Christmas/New Year has sneaked up on you but how about Uranus in Taurus?
It is there from May 2018 until July 2025, a whole new vortex. A whole new economy, Taurus being the sign of money, Wall St and all. A whole new Taurus, obviously.
2016 is, in many ways, a Uranian prep for Taurus peeps – if you are an April born Taurus, you are already beginning to pick up on the transmission of totally fresh signals.
If you are Taurus and fighting your way through OR wondering if you should just give up and settle already, take heart – Uranus is coming. Trust the weird. The way it’s always been done only stifles you once Uranus hits."
"When these themes collide, you’ll get a sudden release/completion of South Node stuff, courtesy of Uranus (at 12-14 degrees Aries, in your chart). Watch for abrupt endings, arguments or breaks for freedom. The feeling of a Uranus/South Node contact is “enough’s enough.” Of course, whatever crosses the South Node opposes the North Node, which is an opportunity to move towards it (at 12-14 degrees Libra in your chart). You’ll have no excuses, because the South Node will be done.
And Pluto will be squaring the whole works, creating tension (at 12-14 degrees Capricorn, in your chart). The tension will make things so uncomfortable, an existing situation will have to change. It could involve anything from changes to the status quo, an increase/decrease in authority, a reveal of what lies beneath the facade of respectability…it depends on your chart."
Well, I have Uranus on my Mercury in 6th again. So that probably means more crazy at work or something...which has so far happened, but not as bad as usual. Of course, I say this as I wait for anvils to fall.
Gah, I don't need things to burst at work.
"THIS is when whatever emotional re-synch you need to make happen to align with the Awesome of 2015 will be abundantly clear. Lucid insights re feelings and relationships to the max. None of this emotional evolution is flimsy or hypothetical – this is practical, full-on, liberating lunar magic.
EPIC for analyzing your psyche, dis-entangling the complicated knot of some long-standing emotional pattern. Circumstances tend to evoke all this."
"If Mercury touches Uranus within your birth chart, the potential is there not only to shock and shake yourself out of conditioned responses, which ultimately revolutionizes your mind, you can also serve as a catalyst for others by encouraging the same type of examination and questioning concerning the usefulness of the existing thought structures.
Your perceptions have the potential to be lightning quick and accurate to boot. Trusting your intuitive faculties is an important ingredient in this cosmic recipe. We’re talking about flashes of mental insight while in the shower, on the train, driving to work- you name it.
Some astrologers say the highest manefistation of this aspect means genius. I say it can produce someone who not only colors “outside the lines” in life and stretches the boundaries of the mind, but also consistently maintains the courage to stand alone in the face of their ideas initially being branded as “unpopular”, or highly eccentric.
An individual who knows the price of admission to non-conformity and keeps a stash of currency to cover it.
If you have this connection in your chart, it’s extremely important to develop and nurture your capacity for independent thought.
Your natural inclination is to reject the “herd” mentality. So, go ahead and keep developing your new slang and verbiage and let others take their time in catching up."
I decided to look at an eclipse table and see if any eclipses lined up with significant years for me.
1996 (started dating): Apr 3, 1996 7:07 PM Sun 14 Ari 31 Opposition Moon 14 Lib 31(LE). That one literally kicked off within a few weeks of my dating life starting at age 18, hah. On my Mercury/Pluto/nodes.
1997 (dad got diagnosed with a disease, I graduated high school and went on to college): nothing hitting anything significant on me. Probably hitting on my parents' though because the big thing then was Virgo and Pisces. I don't have any of that, but that's their ascendants/descendants.
1998 (significant relationship): Aug 21, 1998 10:03 PM Sun 28 Leo 48 Conjunct Moon 28 Leo 48(SE)--near my Saturn. Relationship kicked off a few months later and was a very Saturn Return-y (for him) one and me (Saturn transiting 7th).
1999 (relationship ended, started working):
Near to my Mars and Saturn in Leo. Both the relationship ending and the job starting were in fall.
2001 (graduated from college, lost job): June 21, 2001 7:58 AM Sun 0 Can 11 Conjunct Moon 0 Can 11(SE)--hitting around my Jupiter in Cancer. Not that lucky? Graduation happened right before that, got laid off around the end of the year. Around the beginning of 2002 I got another job and relationship at the same time.
June 24, 2002 5:42 PM Sun 3 Can 11 Opposition Moon 3 Cap 11(LE)
I don't think this one really is ah, responsible for any of that, but I should probably mention it. Hits around Jupiter again.
Around the start of 2004, the relationship ended:
May 15, 2003 11:36 PM Sun 24 Tau 53 Opposition Moon 24 Sco 53(LE)
Nov 8, 2003 8:13 PM Sun 16 Sco 13 Opposition Moon 16 Tau 13(LE)
Nov 23, 2003 5:59 PM Sun 1 Sag 14 Conjunct Moon 1 Sag 14(SE)
Around my Venus for the first one, Uranus for the second one and my moon again on the third.
In the later end of 2004, I had wisdom teeth surgery and a flooded apartment that I had to vacate for several months:
May 4, 2004 4:33 PM Sun 14 Tau 42 Opposition Moon 14 Sco 42(LE)
This one was on Uranus.
Oct 27, 2004 11:07 PM Sun 5 Sco 02 Opposition Moon 5 Tau 02(LE)
In the vicinity of my ascendant--this one went on during the apartment/tooth drama time.
In 2005, my dad went into the hospital for the rest of his life.
Apr 24, 2005 6:06 AM Sun 4 Tau 20 Opposition Moon 4 Sco 20(LE)
2007: dad dies, no significant eclipse action going on for me then. Go figure. But again, it was a Pisces/Virgo time going on and that hits my parents more than me.
2012: I have both temporary and permanent job changes going on:
Nov 25, 2011 1:09 AM Sun 2 Sag 37 Conjunct Moon 2 Sag 37(SE)
June 4, 2012 7:11 AM Sun 14 Gem 14 Opposition Moon 14 Sag 14(LE)
Moon and Neptune.
2013: birthday eclipse again around ascendant:
Apr 25, 2013 3:57 PM Sun 5 Tau 45 Opposition Moon 5 Sco 45(LE)
I get way disillusioned and eventually get a car a few months later.
And in October will be...
Oct 8, 2014 6:50 AM Sun 15 Lib 05 Opposition Moon 15 Ari 05(LE)
Oct 23, 2014 5:56 PM Sun 0 Sco 25 Conjunct Moon 0 Sco 25(SE)
Mercury/Pluto/nodes and asccendant/Sun. I wonder what shit that brings on?
Now to be fair, let's look at years where eclipses hit my planets but nothing I remember as being significant happened: 1995 had Uranus and Sun/Ascendant, 2000 had a hit on Mars, 2008 and 2009 had hits on Mars and Saturn, 2010 had a hit on Jupiter, 2011 had a hit on Moon. But now I'm kinda wondering if I just don't remember anything specific. I know a hell of a lot of Teh Dramaz was going on at work from 2008 on, but none of it started to screw with me until around 2011-2012.
Now let's categorize by planet and drama:
Sun/Ascendant: surgery and flooding, dad going into hospital, basically giant emotional drama, car buying: So....not good, overall.
Moon and Venus: dating, probably foreshadowing relationship ending.
Uranus: dating, flood, surgery--not good.
Mercury/Pluto/Nodes: dating, on a good scale.
Saturn: dating and work, but not consistently identifable drama. Plusses and minuses.
Mars: dating and work, but not consistently identifiable drama.
Jupiter: job, dating, but not consistently identifiable drama. Started out good for what I could identify.
"We are all Uranians now. Quick morphs, fast decision-making and speed-dumping of the past are (in general) the most profitable moves du jour. See scopes for more and if you’re insomniac at the mo, it’s a higher-order Uranian vibe trying to happen."
Yeah....and I'm posting this at 4:35 a.m. Sigh.
And apparently I'm only getting to posting it around now.
"Any combination of Uranus (surprise) and Jupiter (optimism/luck) can be associated with lucky breaks. Jupiter expands, Uranus breaks the rules. Limits are blown away and, for a brief moment, anything is possible. This could play out in different ways, but generally, the push for emotional expression (Jupiter in Cancer) will get a shot of “anything goes” (Uranus in Aries). People may take crazy risks to get what they want, and they may very well succeed. Mind you, they may fall flat on their faces as well. This is not a predictable influence.
But it has potential, see? It’s risky, but there’s hope. I’m not advising you to go bananas (I said this is a risky influence) but if there’s something you want to roll the dice on and if you’re ready to accept the consequences…go for it. The outcome may be a wonderful surprise. But first, take a hard look at your chart and see exactly how this influence is hitting it.
If you’re not up for risk taking, but you would like to navigate this energy, keep the word “freedom” in mind. Your freedom, their freedom. No one is going to hold your hand during this transit. If you cling, wallow or collapse in a heap of helplessness, you’ll activate the side of this aspect that tears away exactly what you think you need the most. Because Jupiter is involved, this shot of independence will definitely be good for you. And you may see how good it is, really quickly. But why set yourself up for that initial, rude shove? Exercise your emotional independence to get the best from this influence."
I finally bought a car :)
"To make most of this aspect, pick something that you’ve been putting off (something that involves Leo themes) and just do it. This isn’t a life-changing influence, but it can make it easier for you to pluck up your courage and take that risk. Remember that Uranus retrograde is intensified freedom/change."
What am I putting off? Picking insurance, picking a life goal...everything, basically....
"Think about the changes transiting Uranus (in the Aries section of your chart) has been stirring up. They’ve probably been aggressive or impulsive. Maybe you’ve totally skipped over something. Uranus retrograde will force (that’s a strong word, but this is a strong transit) you to take a second look or initiate a change that’s been in the works for awhile. It will probably be directed at one particular issue, situation or person.
This influence can also bring a breakthrough. Uranus is responsible for flashes of ingenuity and 11th hour about-faces. So if there’s something you’re stuck on or in, this transit could be your escape hatch. Pay attention to crazy ideas and unexpected encounters; they could be your ticket out (and up)."
Man, I hope that happens.
"But seriously, i don’t buy that ‘we act like our ascendant early and then do the sun sign’ thing. I mean, there are SO many different aspects of a chart. If you have – for example – Uranus in Scorpio Rising with Mars in Leo square that and on the Midheaven, you know you’re doing that. You’re like a big jungle cat individualistic dakini rocking bit of business."
Well, I have that exact setup she just mentioned and I am all....what am I doing, exactly?!
