What happens at Uranus Opposition?
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?
