Action and reaction, ebb and flow, trial and error, change – this is the rhythm of living. Out of our over-confidence, fear; out of our fear, clearer vision, fresh hope. And out of hope, progress. ~ Bruce Barton
Uranus will be changing signs again soon, going into Aries on May 27, 2010. This will be a new experience for almost all of us. Only our elders in their late 80’s or older have experienced Uranus’ transit of Aries and most were probably too young to remember details, although some may have total recall if the transit was especially powerful. Life was very different then, so their experiences might seem quite alien or old-timey to us. A lot of us have experienced a 1st, 2nd or 3rd house transit of Uranus, though, or a transit to the angles. We may not understand the significance of Uranus in Aries yet, but we have plenty of experience by house and planet aspects. And the one thing we can share with our elders is the emotional impact of major change.
I’m interested in hearing about your experience as Uranus transited a specific house or planet. This may have been a transit in your chart or a transit in another person’s chart that resulted in a major change in your life ~ for example, maybe your spouse had a Uranian transit that greatly impacted your relationship. Perhaps you stood by as Uranus transited a sensitive point in your child’s life, or you watched a friend undergo radical change.
Uranus loves shaking things up, and sometimes that’s exactly what we need. Uranus transits can, however, signify times in our lives that are quite painful. It can be so hard to let go. These transits also have the capacity to make us look somewhat foolish because our behavior is so out of the ordinary and unexpected. People say things like, “I never thought in a million years that So-And-So would…(fill in the blank).” That’s how unsettling some Uranian transits can be.
I’d like to publish some of your comments for readers during the IAD Blogathon on March 21st. Please share your Uranian stories so that other people can benefit from your experience. If you want to remain anonymous but still share your experience, email me. Sometimes we want to share, but not too much.
These are the things it would be helpful to note:
- What house was Uranus transiting?
- What planet(s) did Uranus aspect?
- What background can you share about your situation?
- What happened that shook you to the core?
- What did you want to happen as a result of the transit?
- How did your life change?
- What was your biggest lesson?
- What tools for transformation or therapies benefitted you?
- How are you now?
