If the transit is happening in your 2nd house, look also to the 8th, 11th & 5th for impacts

If the transit is happening in your 3rd house, look also to the 9th, 12th & 6th for impacts

If the transit is happening in your 4th house, look also to the 10th, 1st & 7th for impacts

Analysing Uranus Transits

What will happen? Here are some guidelines (taken from, as always. The Eagle and the Lark, by Bernadette Brady):

  • What house is Uranus in natally? What house is the planet being transited in by Uranus natally? These areas will be where the transit starts to happen.
  • What house is Uranus transiting? This is where the main action will be occurring.
  • What house is ruled by Uranus natally? What house is ruled natally by the planet being transited? These are the areas of life that will be affected by the outcome of the transit.
  • What is the nature of the aspect? This will tell you whether the transit will be “easy” or “hard”- and that doesn’t mean “good” or “bad.”

The Nature of the aspect

When Uranus is conjunct a planet or chart point, her energy is fused with that planet. She takes over that planet. Her energy is stronger than the planet she is invading. When Uranus is in Aries- this will be any other planet in Aries.

When Uranus is opposing a planet or chart point, “someone or something “out there” is doing something to you and furthermore, it’s their fault.” A decision is necessary. When Uranus is in Aries, she will oppose any planets you have in Libra.

When Uranus is square a planet or chart point, there is tension and frustration- something happens which will force you “into a mode of action that you have not yet explored…results stimulate actions rather than decisions.” This will be any planets you have in Cancer or Capricorn.

When Uranus is trine a planet or chart point whatever is going to happen will happen quickly and relatively easily. Obstacles will be removed. This doesn’t mean that it will be good or painless, just that whatever is going to happen will happen quickly and relatively easily! This will be the case with planets in Sagittarius or Leo

When Uranus is sextile a planet or chart point opportunities may arise. As there are masculine signs (Aries and Gemini or Aquarius) something may just drop into your lap. Sounds good? Not necessarily. “If you are not in a position to take up the opportunity, then the sextile can symbolize quite a dramatic event to create the space in your life for new options.” If the door is closed, it can be blasted open.

When Uranus is inconjunct or quincunx a planet or chart point, there will be a change, separation of letting go of something- whether you are ready for it or not. Brady describes this as being as if someone has stepped onto the stage, stopped the play, changes the actors and the script, or moved everyone to a new theatre. This is any planet in Virgo or Scorpio.

The Timing

OK, every astrologer has a different rule of thumb. Here is what I use:

  • I use orbs of no more than 2 degrees applying and separating- although I really don’t think that you don’t really feel an outer planet transit until it’s about 1 degree away.
  • If the transiting planet applying to the aspect turns retrograde before it actually perfects the aspect, you feel the energy, but not the impact so much until it comes back direct. Eg Uranus turned retrograde in July 2009 at 26 Pisces 37’ less than a degree from my Moon at 27 Pisces 23’. I didn’t feel the impact of this conjunction until Uranus came back direct within a degree of my Moon.
  • I use whole signs only. Eg Even though my natal Saturn is at 0 Aries 58’ I didn’t see the aspect as within orb until Uranus actually moved into Aries.
  • If Uranus stations direct or retrograde on a planet or chart point take notice. Highlight it, put it in flashing lights or whatever. Just. Take. Notice.
  • Outer planets generally have 3 (sometimes more) hits at a planet- the 1st direct is an uncomfortable shock, the retrograde is about absorption of the lesson & the last can be the knife in the back that jolts you to take notice.

2017 20-28 Aries

  • Uranus begins the year at 20 Aries 34′
  • 3/8/17 Uranus retrograde at 28 Aries 32’
  • 2/1/18 Uranus direct at 24 Aries 34’
  • If you have planets or chart points between 19-29 degrees of the signs above, you will be receiving that aspect during 2017
