THE URANUS OPPOSITION

The life cycle phenomenon that is the Uranus Opposition occurs at age 42 – 44, when transit Uranus is opposite the natal placement of Uranus.  Uranus is the planet of freedom, and when it is activated in the chart, it shakes up the status quo to bring in needed changes. This transit heralds a time of breaking free of limitations because you feel deeply compelled to change your life.  This need for change is powerful enough to disrupt every aspect of your life. Uranus is the planet of innovation and change, and its opposition brings unexpected events and sudden changes, not all of which are chosen.

One of the key themes of the Uranus opposition is the need for greater personal freedom and an increased desire for deeper individuation. It is a time when we feel compelled to break free from the constraints of society and tradition, from the constraints of the life we’ve been living, and as well, the constraints of our conditioning.  We want to find and forge a path that expresses our authentic self.  The new path will initially manifest in various ways, such as a desire to change careers, move to a new location, end a long-term relationship, and more.  And then its unfolding begins.

The Uranus opposition is a time of significant change and transformation. We are forced to confront our deepest fears and insecurities. While this can be a difficult and challenging time, it is also a time of growth and self-discovery.

On a global scale, Uranus events provoke dramatic changes.  Extreme restlessness and dissatisfaction with the status quo, which have been brewing for some time, erupt under this influence.  This is a time when authority and the status quo are seriously, even violently, impugned.

Protests, revolutions, and other forms of social upheaval find their timing under Uranus’ influence.  During these times, Uranus is aspecting Pluto or Saturn.  Under these planetary influences, particularly under Uranus-Pluto transiting contacts (conjunction, square, or opposition), we see major historical turning points involving permanent changes to prevailing cultural paradigms.  Uranus/ Pluto events bring about revolutionary movements, technological advancements, and major shifts in social and political structures.

At the personal level, the Uranus opposition is a momentous astrological event that brings change, disruption, and a desire for personal freedom. Blocks can finally be released, allowing access to new experiences. It can be a challenging time, but it can also be a time of tremendous growth and self-discovery. It is important to dance with the changes as they come and embrace the attitude that adapting to new circumstances as they show up will allow your life to flow towards, rather than resist, its new course.
