My Big Uranus Transit and the Uranus Cycle

"Phoenix of the Heart" by Kim Dreyer “Phoenix of the Heart” by Kim Dreyer

Some of you may be wondering where I have been, and in fact I have wondered that myself.  I am in the middle of a Very Big Uranus Transit in which the planet of rebellion and the destroyer of all that is rigid and feels like obligation is sitting right on an important system in my chart.  (Geeky astrological details: I have a triple conjunction in Libra of Saturn, Sun and Neptune which is squared by Uranus in Cancer.)  

The Uranus cycle tends to be associated with major changes in a person’s life.  The first one, the square (90 degree) aspect from Uranus in the sky to Uranus in the chart, occurs around age 20-22 in tandem with the closing square of Saturn in the sky to Saturn in the chart.  This is usually a time of chaos in a young person’s life during which they may dramatically shift the course their life has been taking up until that time.  Saturn puts pressure on the individual to get serious about their life, and at the same time Uranus is urging rebellion and a breaking away of anything that feels restrictive.  No wonder it’s such a challenging time!

The second phase in the cycle is the classic midlife crisis transit at age 40-42, the Uranus Opposition, which occurs in tandem with the square of transiting Neptune to natal Neptune.  During this cycle the urge to break out of routine (Uranus) is complicated by the confusion and delusion that is imposed by Neptune in an effort to inspire transcendence and a yearning for a more inward and spiritual life course.

Sunday Inspiration from Kelly Lee Phipps

Kelly Lee Phipps is a brilliant astrologer who was diagnosed with inoperable brain cancer this year. He posted this poem on his Facebook page.

SATORI

Two circles unite
sun and moon move together

eternity flows

One heart opens wide
living waters surged inward

tears crawling from our stories

This sacred flow aspires
to express the divine through
a fountain of radiant wisdom

As rain falls on the cracked ground
fertilizing being in the
depths of pure, fiery satori

As in the heavens, so in each of us,
we ascend fully into the moment
returning to visionary wholeness

Yet we resist the inward current
carrying the secrets of the mountains
to the sea

We are afraid of the awakening voice
calling from heaven within
as we stand firm against
the dancing flame in our hearts

asking where is passion?

what is purposeful?

why should action be actionless?

In the modern cultures we look back to ancient indigenous cultures for wisdom and enlightenment. In our struggle to preserve and perfect our lives we have forgotten how to truly live.

Kelly Lee (2/5/1971) was diagnosed as his progressed Sun (Self) made an exact opposition to Pluto, the planet of transformation.  He is also in the middle of his Uranus opposition: a time when Uranus in the sky is exactly opposite Uranus in the birthchart.  Uranus experiences that shock us into awakening into a new reality, and the Uranus opposition at age 41-42, the return at age 84 and the squares at 21 and 61-62 are all very significant times of change.

Kelly Lee’s Sun is in Aquarius, ruled by Uranus, and his Sun is in a harmonious trine to Uranus.  Uranus is the Lord of Astrology – astrology is itself governed by the Uranian influence of radical departure from established thought and rules.  Kelly Lee […]
