What Happens At Uranus Opposition?

Uranus Opposition

What happens at Uranus Opposition?

Everything.

Whatever feels stifling and conventional is ripped off and tossed. Like a t-shirt with a faint grease spot on it suddenly spotted by Virgo Vision. Note: Everything feels suffocating and conventional at Uranus Opposition time.

Like the better known Saturn Return, this astral passage occurs to everyone at the same age.  Uranus opposes its natal position when the person is in their late 30s to early 40s.  It can feel like a cosmic alarm clock going off. Or one of those movies where the lead wakes up and realizes that they’re an alien. You remember your life mission. Hormones are going haywire – saying breed-run – stay and build – no, go East. West?  Your perceptions are acute. Deja Vu attacks common. The desire to disrupt your regime is incessant.

It’s Always Einstein Time During Uranus Opposition

The structures built at Saturn Return that felt SO necessary then can suddenly feel oppressive. The societal approval you desired – irrelevant. Uranus Opposition is the ultimate in existential crisis and the time when people are most likely to bust out in rebel mode. What you think of as your ‘natural element’ feels unnatural in an instance.  Unlike the slow deep chthonic grind of a Pluto trip or the Mists of Neptune, Uranus Opposition happens in spurts and abrupt zig-zags. It’s always Einstein Time during Uranus Opposition. You can dismantle scenarios that took years to construct in moments – or so it seems.

If you were born in the mid-70s you’re doing this now, and yes, Uranus Opposition at the same time it is moving into a new phase/sign (Uranus in Taurus) is super-Uranian.  Some people love Uranus Opposition – they feel like someone pulled the plug on their psyche and it reverted to ‘factory settings.’ They thrive like crazy.  Others find it too skittish. The secret of this astral passage? Freedom from needing tribal approval for your wellbeing. The more you can radically reinvent at this point, the more the cosmos comes to the party.

A strange Uranus Opposition Side Effect: If you’re resisting the whole deal, for whatever reason, Uranus Vibe tends to trot straight through your front door in the persona of a Mr or a Ms. Uranus. Bust your rut, or they’ll do it for you. Thoughts?

IS Uranus Opposition another way to say Mid-Life Crisis?

I’m blown away, and so encouraged by finding your site, and your style and imagery. I’ve done a lot of serious study of my own chart, but after a stale period, recently had a kind of awakening around my Sun being exactly conjunct Algol (12th House), which occurred around some synchronicitous though shadowy exchanges with a woman I fell for, which had medusan mythology to them. This sent me on a rampage of new study and searching, so finding your site, with positive, powerful expressions of the medusa and also Uranian ideas is equally mind blowing to me. Your discussion… Read more »

I’m not very good at interpreting my chart cause I’m a newbie to Astro. But I just realized after reading this .. fuq … I’ve had Uranus opposition since it got to Aries. Aries Sun with natal Uranus in Libra. I think that’s how it works?!? This has been one of the toughest cycles ever. Like skin being peeled away.

I’m completely convinced that it’s going to be a rebirth of personae for myself. Born 7 Scorp Uranus on my AC, sorry I feel repetitive here but it’s the big attraction in my chart. Next up, busting through my 7H and activating my t-square. Still a big away but I can feel it coming closer. Working on letting go, acceptance, movement, being open, saying yes. Fine tooth combing those ingrained habits and getting those knots free so I can conduit the energy. Some things feel more solid and real than they ever have and other things feel like rot that… Read more »

I’m resonating with this way more that the apocryphal Saturn return that everyone describes…I don’t rly care what my peers are doing I want to be totally myself!
But maybe that’s par for the course when your Uranus is conj sat + Nep natally. So my bald spot red convertible is some travel and a job liberation plot but with funds and a cleared subconscious

I am with @Chrysalis here: I don’t remember anything particular. The crash was Uranus entering Aries in 2011, and then again 2013: but when it opposed my Uranus in Libra actually (april / may 2014) things started to fall into the right places. Not the “freedom at all costs” places but I got a job again and a wage. It was Uranus on my 8h house though; I read somewhere that Uranus in your 8th, not matter your age, is a “coming of age” from the psychological point of view and boy that DOES FIT 100% what happened then.

My Uranus opposition came just as it struck the ASC so I got divorced and started what I thought was my new life only to be up ended and broken into bits and then spend the next years up until now figuring it all out. It has been base survival stuff since it all happened but this month has taken a complete turn about and I am looking at the next section of my life beginning a new.

Mine was during the Uranus in Pisces years. I really don’t remember anything disruptive or significant – I was studying, working part time and enjoying life. However looking back I think that was the time I learned for the first time in my life about unconditional love – from my wonderful rescue dogs. I’d never had pets before and those two taught me so much. My guardian angel blind Pisces dog was a gift from the heavens. It was when she passed that the wheels began to fall off the marriage.

My MIL had her Uranus Return six -seven years ago when was widowed and freed of an old world spouse. Now near she lives alone plays canasta, drives, cooks, has great health. Her second marriage was indentured servitude and she is now free as a bird.

She is an early Virgo Sun and lost many peers with the Neptune opp.

Speaking as a fellow Uraniac, I think it’s to do more with what Uranus will do to YOU/your life, rather than you becoming more of a Uraniac. Also i believe that if you are already Uranus’ biatch then you’ll probably be more equipped to survive whatever it throws at you… just stay flexible & keep your sense of humour.

Thanks skarab! He’ll be going into my 6H, where I have Chiron in Toro at 10 degrees…eventually crossing into my 7H…so…daily work habits, the grind, the job, diet/nutrition/exercise…then relationships/open enemies.

The Chiron part makes me nervous. Life is already challenging these days, with T Saturn squaring my Moon at 10 degrees Aries.

If it’s any consolation, Uranus went over my partner’s Chiron (opposite his natal Uranus-Pluto-Venus) without as much as a discernible ruffle, at least i don’t recall it as such – it was yrs ago. But perhaps it manifested to him as a genius flash/artistic insight as he was fiendishly working on a fabulous art project at the time. So you know, it’s not always a crazy outward shake-up no holds barred time like it was for me.

Fellow Uranian here, with Uranus conjunct my Libran ASC. After living through my own Uranus opposition, the only advice I can give you is keep dancing to the beat of your own drum, and if you can’t hear it, clap your hands instead. At least yours won’t happen during peak Zap Zone, with Uncle Pluto loitering around your IC like a belligerent old tomcat in on the threshold of your front door, deciding whether to stay out or come in.

Yes. Traditionally(?) We’re exposed to the balding bloke who buys the red sports car and takes off with the nanny / Secretary etc. In society/culture there hasn’t really been a space allocated to mid-life women for their own experiences, regardless of how clichéd those may also be! But perhaps that is changing. Interestingly, going with that dominant cultural model, I suppose becoming a single mother / divorcée was also an exercise in independence. That isn’t meant to sound as stuffy as it might. My parents finally split when my mother and father were 43, he was having an affair (one… Read more »

Ooooh! Thanks for this link, skarab! Very helpful, as I am sometimes gracefully and definitely sometimes not gracefully transitioning into my midlife here at 50, although no menopause in sight yet, I’m feeling a mental shift and want to do it more mindfully. I thought I’d feel ‘midlife-y’ in my 40’s but looking back I didn’t at all. It’s really starting now…

Fully agreed, Pi! Chrysalis – In Chinese medicine this time period is called Second Spring, and there’s actually a book by that name that gives some holistic ways of handling menopausal time. There’s so much we can do to ease symptoms. I’m doing it pre-emptively by getting acupuncture, myself, and I’m taking some Motherwort at night to help with anxiety and it helps me wake up happier. I think the main thing I notice for myself, so far, is that I’ve been more and more irritable as I’ve gotten older, really impatient, and the acupuncture and herbal medicine has helped… Read more »

Mine just finished its final pass and is about 3 degrees off. Full into Saturn Opposition now. Since I have Venus/Chiron oppo Uranus natally, the opposition also included a Uranus/Venus conjunction. I’m already pretty fiercely independent. I wasn’t in a relationship during the time, although I was in love with a man who had Uranus conjunct his DC – we had an unconventional, lovely connection, but I thought I wanted the whole enchilada, so I suffered. As Uranus moved away, the obsession with him has finally faded. Learned a lot about what love really is – ie it’s not about… Read more »

I’ve found people tend to either love or hate their Uranus Opposition – it really depends on how well they’ve developed their natal Uranus. If they’re fully individuated, have a healthy level of independence, their own social lives, and a good relationship with change, the Uranus Opposition tends *not* to be experienced as upsettingly disruptive although it may indeed put one in contact with a person or even group who changes them quite markedly. If one is in a LTR at this time – and especially if it’s with someone their own age who is also going through this transit… Read more »

I agree. My friend calls me “radically self-reliant”. Just got through my Uranus opposition (2 degrees off now – is that still active?) and I can’t say I noticed it. Chiron has been tangoing on my DC for awhile now and self-worth themes have come up. If anything, I suppose Uranus made it clear standing my ground, however humble, was the way through the Chiron swamp. Can’t imagine it going another way. Can say integrity is a great way to work. My values aren’t right or wrong but they’re mine and it’s all I’ve got to live by.

Also truly humbling in every sense – at least that was my experience of it. Yes it’s great to be in control and achieve goals that stroke the ego, but the Uranus experience takes one further – it can give one a peek into the Great Divine, and it is *humbling* – that is all i can describe it as.

Uranian transits are like taking a light-sabre to our attachments.

Life reset. I’m a different person to my pre-uranian self but it feels like I’m the me I’m meant to be if that makes sense. Honestly I’m a little worried about losing that as Pluto and Uranus both… Read more »

I’m 50 now, have natal Uranus at 28 Virgo in the 4th, but when the opposition was happening I guess I did break out of my mould in a bunch of ways — In 2009, I got rid of most of what I ever owned, including my car, and moved to England from California and lived with the hare krisnas for awhile. Found that quite stifling, hung around England awhile longer then moved back to California, was homeless for 10 months, then started a very intense job in public health that stretched me in ways I never could have imagined… Read more »

Yes, it was a grand adventure, but this time period is now still adversely affecting me, financially.
I feel like this time period won’t ‘complete’ until I’m able to get out of this financial hole I’m in.
Perhaps Uranus moving into Taurus will help..?

Oh lawd, yes. I’ve discussed this with you before, Mystic. Uranus opposition on my IC changed EVERYTHING (natal Uranus on my Sun/MC). Like my whole home life got blown up and violent, anxiety disorder mayhem ensued. It’s not over yet either, not until it finally crosses over into my 5th house (around 4 Taurus). I wonder what will get zapped then? Hopefully I can kick my creative life into gear by then, lol. I’m still picking up the pieces from the tornado that was Uranus opposition in my 4th.

Is it Uranus Opposition that precipitates a midlife crisis?

I think the 2nd Nodal Return is a precursor to the Uran half-life. Ages 37 and 42 do seem to be linked esp in popular writing. I started uni when l was 36 …something l swore never do…Itchycoo Park n all. I got my permanancy in teaching at 42. It felt like some out-of-the-blue calling. My half-life started anew. It was in my 8th. Yet everybody else knew l should’ve been a teacher…except me. But nagging at my psyche was l was serving everyone else (Dbl Kat with personal planets in a Virgo Stellium turboed by Pluto). I was a… Read more »

Wow! So what did you do before you became a teacher?

I love that people around you already knew you should be a teacher

I was a, and am again, motor trimmer (car uphosterer).

I’m learning to swap between the Surfboard of Neptune, the Ducati of Pluto and Voyager of Uranus.

But… but… I’m trying to come to terms with Saturn on my Sun (exact yesterday). How does one build, fortify and make solid plans for the future if I’m about to have a Uranus opposition? Oh, and Pluto is bang on my natal Venus too, just to add some more confusion to the mix. I don’t know what instincts to follow at the moment because they all seem to change daily. I feel like massive, life-altering change is coming but I’ve never been so unsure of ‘who’ I’m meant to be so don’t know how to approach any of it.… Read more »

perhaps choose to meditate daily or do a weekly sesh for clarity. sun-saturn will appreciate the focus time. my experience of saturn conj sun was that i worked very hard. it was a ‘demands of the work here-and-now’ thing, not a planning thing. so change what you want, and know that you’ll have the drive to do a shitload of work to see that change through. note some ways to manage psyche burnout too.

Yes, I need to keep my mind calm and focused so meditation is definitely something I want to improve on. I’ve noticed I’m journalling a lot more, writing everything out. I think that’s probably a healthy way to deal with all this astro, especially considering my Sun is in my 3rd 😉

I am going through this right now. I bought my “dream house” in 2010 and am now looking around asking myself what the hell I was thinking. I can’t decide whether to move or just revamp the whole place. Dumped a ton of friends that weren’t me anymore, really appreciating the friends that still around, and finally found a happy medium with some family since I don’t care what anyone thinks or says about me. I kind of feel like I am on a cliff and I’ll be soaring off it soon in full flight mode. I love it!

Makes sense, I’m now entering my mid 50’s and approximately ten years ago I sold everything to move out West (American Southwest) to work in a National Park. It’s a nice back yard.
