As you know, I’ve been reading Barbara Hand Clow’s book, Chiron Rainbow Bridge Between the Inner and Outer Planets, and in the book, Clow talks about three major transits that occur during our lives; the Chiron square, the Saturn return, and the Uranus opposition to itself. I do agree with that.
These are the times when it’s crucial to put in the self-work. My Uranus opposition to itself is coming up so I’m going to break that down, and hopefully, by me doing that, it will make it easier for you to do the same if you happen to be in the same situation. Let me start by explaining what the hell this all means, because I know there are a lot of people who are interested in astrology and would like to follow it, but find it difficult to learn on their own.
My interest for astrology came out of nowhere back in 2007, but I can’t sit here and say I’ve been feverishly studying it since. It’s been more of a side thing or a hobby that I study, practice, and put to use in my spare time. The more you live the more you understand so it’s best to take astrology in stride-not to mention the system is so vast in information that it can be overwhelming and confusing. Take your time with it.
In my natal chart, Uranus is in the 5th house on the 25th degree of Scorpio. An opposition is when you have two planets directly across from one another; an opposition is an aspect of 180 degrees. The Uranus opposition occurs around the age of 42, but it could be later because Uranus goes retrograde and that slows the transit or it’s path around the zodiac. When it finally reaches opposition to itself, it will be directly across from where it was when you were born, or its position in your birth chart. For me, that’s Taurus 25 degrees just past the 11th house cusp.
Uranus in Taurus Analysis
Taurus is the sign of people who revel in the pleasures of life. It’s about security, comfort, and the warmth of relaxing in the home environment. It’s care. The flip side to this is that Taurus can be bullish, willful and stubborn, but not because they’re assholes. The issue is that Taurus is kind, devoted, and loyal-sometimes it hard to let things go.
Uranus is the planet of invention, rebellion, reformation, and unpredictable changes. It’s about discovery, independence, and improv. Uranus brings liberation, genius, science, originality, and breakthroughs.
As Uranus transits the fixed, feminine, and negatively energized earth sign that is Taurus, he will shake it up-house included. He will wake it up with sudden awareness and lighting insight so that the necessary changes can be made. Changes that ultimately promote growth and evolution.
