Welcome to part two of Good News Transits a look at the benefits and lessons that transits of Jupiter, Saturn and the outer planets can bring into our lives. Part one looked at how to make the most of Saturn and Jupiter transits and this one looks at the upside of Uranus transits. Sometimes it’s hard to see the gifts that the transits of the outer planets bring. Their transits can last a year or more and can really turn our lives upside down. But let’s jump right in. Here goes.....
Uranus transits symbolize events, feelings and life developments which are unpredictable, unexpected, unprecedented, unusual and/or unconventional. We may experience breakdowns, break ups, breakthroughs and Eureka moments during a Uranus transit. This transit can feel exciting and electric and we may have a lot of nervous energy that we just can’t switch off. So, what's the good news?
Ø All change is good! Right? Perhaps not, but Uranus transits are great for helping us get out of a boring rut, to break free from situations that are no longer working for us.
Ø Uranus transits bring clarity. Suddenly, we can see how things are and we feel certain about where we want to make changes in our lives.
Ø All that extra energy means we can get more done. Sleep? Who needs sleep! Seriously, though, make some time to 'chillax' and ground yourself too. You don't want to burn-out! Which leads nicely to the next point......
Ø ......Uranus is associated with electricity. Using that analogy, the transits of Uranus act like a fuse in an electrical circuit. When the circuit gets overloaded (for circuit, read nervous system), the fuse cuts off the current, protecting us from damage or overheating. In other words, Uranus transits are good at cutting us off from unhealthy patterns/situations. It’s for our own good, even if it doesn’t feel that way at the time.
Ø Uranus transits urge us to seek more independence and freedom, to make space for ourselves, to be selfish for once, to rebel a little and to claim our own physical/psychological/psychic space.
Ø Amazing personal breakthroughs are possible under a Uranus transit. On any level.
Ø Uranus transits give us the opportunity to indulge in exciting new activities. For example, many an astrological career was launched under a Uranus transit.
Ø What about the not-so-good? Sorry to end on a bum note, but it needs to be said that for some people, Uranus transits can feel stressful and isolating. This seems especially so for people who are naturally resistant to change (such as those with a lot of earth or fixed energy in their charts). Even for those who embrace the changes that Uranus transits bring, there is the danger of changing the good things as well as the bad, just for the sake of change. The common advice is to avoid ‘throwing the baby out with the bathwater” or you could find yourself with a lot of broken pieces to pick up further down the line. If your Uranus transit is getting you down, resist making all or nothing decisions at least until the transit is over and try to stay positive. In the meantime, seek some personal independence and freedom, because in that space you will be better able to find some clarity. Now, read those good new bullets again......
