Uranus Conjunct Sun Transit

Uranus Conjunct Sun TransitUranus conjunct Sun transit will make you feel an urge to express yourself in new ways because Uranus is the planet of change and higher awareness. You become more in tune, more aware of your true nature which may be rather different to the old you.

Uranus brings freedom of expression so you will feel less inhibited and more open-minded, more willing to explore the possibility that you have been living as family, friends, or society expected you to, and not being true to your own individual identity.

The inner changes that you go through in this self discovery transit can manifest outwardly as big changes in your life from work to home and relationships. As this transit approaches you may anticipate or look forward to more excitement and change, especially if you have been feeling stagnate over the last few years.

In that case you can take full advantage of the new opportunities which are opening up for you. If you are in a comfortable rut than Uranus may cause unexpected events and unwelcome changes leading to anxiety and tension. If this occurs it will be to promote higher self-awareness.

  1. I dunno much about astrology…my birth date and time are 31st March, 1985, 9:10 am IST…by that I make a second decan but the radical changes I ve bn goin through clearly make me believe am a first decan..trying to come out of my first relationship..don’t know whether it happened/ended is for any good..finding it all too hard..down mentally, physically and professionally..seems no light is going to be there for me ever..can anyone help me some bit and at least tell me if am actually a first or a second transit..

    • Oh you got it happening alright, your Sun is 10°22′ degrees Aries so you can read your horoscopes for the end of decan 1 and beginning of decan 2 to get a better idea of the timing. Uranus got to 8.5 degrees Aries back in July before it turned retrograde, so that was close enough to give you a tickle. You will feel it stronger next year.

      Probably the strongest thing you have been going through though is from Pluto, because it got to 9.5 degrees Capricorn back in April. See Pluto square Sun transit. Like with Uranus, this one will be stronger in 2013. Hang in there, read the comments because you’re not alone.

      • I am a 10 7′ Aries so I can speak to this. I am definitely feeling the Pluto more heavily (but what’s light about Pluto?) than Uranus. Aside from the unexpected and shocking manner in which I was laid off, Uranus is mostly manifesting in this quirky way that involves the sun’s trine from the 8th to moon saturn and north node in the 4th. All of july I felt like I was having a breakdown – I even bought a homeopathic remedy for shock, trauma and grief and took vits and good food for depression. August much better. My take is that this will all come to completion at the exact square to sun? All the “stuff” that came up in July at .5 degrees away from exact will then be resolved? July was bad so saying that it will be stronger in 2013 is not something I am looking forward to.
        Please clarify – do you mean read decan 1 and 2? Your comment says decan 1 and 3. Thank you – and welcome back 🙂 – this blog is a lifeline for me.

        • Apologies for the confusing comment (n.Neptune in III . I see now that Uranus was probably the culprit in July. In April – when Pluto was closest to exact square to Sun I got my first notice that job was probably not secure. But I was holding together. After the sudden ntoice of final break end of May and exit from work end of June, the tidal wave came on. Cathartic in a way.

    • I am an aries decan 1 as my birthday is March 21st. I have gone though drastic changes since 2011 and it has not let up once. I was living in a place for 3 yrs in an almost three yr relationship in which I had my son during. In Oct. last year she left me with no real reason except unhappiness. I got out of that apartment on the 1st of the year only to get kicked out by mid June by my father skipping around now. The shoulder surgery is why I lost my Job of 2 years last may haven’t worked since. In 2nd week of January my shoulder surgery became unsuccessful which lead to Workers compensation fighting me and having no income now waiting to go to court. I got in a car accident totally my car a week after that in Jan. I got into a new relationship fell in love in February which has been off and on since with a Capricorn. Currently off broke up 6 weeks ago but are now talking again and dating whatever you would really wanna call it. My life is in turmoil. I am not sure anything that has happened is for the best except the ending of my almost 3yr relationship last October. I am also physically, mentally, financially drained. The only thing that seems to work anymore to make me happy, that I have not given up on yet is Love. I have no advice wish I knew when things would start looking up again. Need to find a time machine to fast forward everything.

      • Richie, Cain suggest a few things? Great you still have faith in love. For a while consider immersing yourself in love which does not need another person to entangle with to express it. The Uranus arm of this square is the lightning from above or even enlightenment. The Pluto aspect is the explosive depth. Decide how you want to “explode”. Think of this as appositive way to expand. Relationships can be very limiting at times.
        Could I suggest you find a guide or a teacher? It doesn’t matter who, just that they resonate with you, that you feel the truth of what they say inside.
        Teachers come in all shapes and shades but the message boils down to the same thing, that the jewels are inside and to wait for the magic hot from another is to waste time.when you are balanced inside and your inner home fire burns with a steady glow you may attract someone who wants to be warmed by it.
        Sure, all the money, job, other stuff is wretched. But don’t let it destroy the essential you.
        I dip into all manner of teachings. I vere towards the eastern esoteric but I hear the same things said by people like Joyce Meyer!
        Half an hour of meditation every day will do wonders. Under this transit, and while Saturn was/still is in Libra we get to make hard choices. This is the work. This time is very much about choices and we. Ake the best ones when we are really in touch with our deeper self.
        Best of luck. And you have that little boy too! I hope you can have some unbridled fun with him.

        • Hi Uber 🙂 – so good to see your post. Thank you for the wonderful clarification of the Pluto vs the Uranus energy. As you can tell I am somewhat confused since it is all happening at once for me and both planets are so powerful. Pluto and Uranus are so different and then to add the Capricorn Aries agendas squaring off – CRAZY. It IS the perfect time to create a solid identity – and really go deep to figure that out. In this way the square is working together. The Self must face the challenge.

      • Hi there Richie!

        When I was on love and finance bankruptcy, it was very helpful to know that I was somehow responsible and to know my part. Then, I had to attend co-dependent program, three times a week, in order to find out what was that I was doing (or not doing), that led me where I was.

        For me, a love beleiver, was hard but helpful to know that I had to beleive better on work and on standing on my own feet.

        Co-dependent Program is based on 12th steps, that work like an ABC to live (the ways I lived did not prove to be efficient and I ended heart and money broken).

        They are free! And are well spread all over the world. Maybe, you may catch sessions in places near from where you live. You will be only asked to give some service, which will not be draining.

        I learned there to observe, to stop impulses, to pray in a very deep way, to set limits, to set my confidence in my self and in my capabilities to work; therefore, to stand on my own feet (trembling, as they seem to be).

        I learned to listen, to discern, to stop beleiving in promises that did not depend on me. I learned to be patient and to go little by little, having an increasing confidence. I also learned to manage my feelings and to be a little more auto-sustainable (I wanted others to sustain me).

        Wish you luck and happy moments with your baby!

  2. Love is the answer. Starting with yourself. And grab onto anything that nourishes your soul – make time for it. You know what it is – be still and you will know. Commit to getting through this and you will. Best Wishes.

  3. Hi, as per these dates i am decan 1 aries. Born on 30 March 1976. its been over an year since i resigned and for last 5 months i am looking for a job, what is the outlook for me… is there light at the end of tunnel. :))

    • I am March 30 too but twenty years earlier! Jamie says to read end of decan 1 and beginning of decan 2 for our forcast. We are getting hit hard right now with Uranus AND Pluto. Let me know how that full moon 7 degrees Aries goes for you! (September 29). Our identity (Sun) is being challenged and it sounds like we are both experiencing just as this site sees it – one possibility is losing one’s job – which I also did. I have only been looking for 2 months but from my last experience when Pluto was conjunct IC it took a good year but once I put VERY serious vibes out there I go the best job of my life – it lasted fourteen years. I supported my family with that job and learned a lot. The big things for me seem to happen at the midnight hour and it has all turned out good. Hang in there – I have read where some people put the resume through a filter looking for key words and don’t even read the cover letter. So use all the keywords in the job description and put them in your resume – for each job. Don’t keep re-using the same resume. I am Virgo Asc, so always looking for the practical – and Sag moon so big on giving advice hahaha. Best wishes. We are in this for awhile – a good year plus as I see it. Doesn’t mean you won’t get a job before then though. Have your chart done. If you have the money get a good reading.

  4. To start with, I definitely need help…born on 31st march but I believe am first decan, mostly coz my life has been turning topsyturvy since the last year n I can’t see it settling ever..I muster up courage and lose it just the next moment..I feel like doing nothing n just crying n wondering if it’s going to be over or bam any better…I have to let go of that someone wid whom I had first relationship just coz of family issues n could not pursue it beyond a certain level n finding it too hard to move on n if it continues like this I see probz in future life too, unable to commit now which is as scary as it gets…can’t blv I must let go for bttr n move on…and as moving on is hard ad it is n I deep down don’t want to, I fear I might just end up like this forever, TRAPPED n more TRAPPED with someone els in future..feel like ending everything mostly…

  5. I was born on the 26th of March so I think I’m decan 1 Aries (?). Can someone please explain to me what this transit could mean for me? I’m kinda new at this stuff and so far I am beyond confused. Thankyouu.

    • You are decan 1 so the above description would apply. Expect the unexpected – sudden events could change your sense of self either with a sense of being freed or a sense of shock or both. Some say this effect helps us to become more wholly who we really are instead of complying with expectations that don’t really fit us. An example would be losing a job and then taking the time to figure out a new direction that could be a radical change from what we were doing before. I would imagine you are pretty much through the biggest change by now?

  6. The upcoming superior conjunction between the sun, venus, and uranus in Aries is going to occur the day after my birthday – i.e. it’s in my SR for the coming year. It will also be conjunct to my progressed Venus and natal Juno.

    The only challenge I can see is from my crabby Cancer moon which will get a square from this conjunction.

    I’m looking forward to what adventures this is going to bring this year. 2012 was definitely a challenge, but I think this year is going to be much more like a new amusement park ride I’ve waited in a long line to try out!

  7. it’s been so amazing reading all these posts! i’ve been stressing about the uranus conjunct sun/pluto square sun…having moments when i’m convinced i’m going to die soon…panic attacks. having confrontations with people left and right, may be taking one client to small claims court, another client may well be ready to sue me…feel like every direction i turn in i find problems and limitations. today i just wanted to scream, let me out! my 10 yr old son is also having pluto squaring his natal mars in cancer,,…so following that one along leads me back to the sudden death thing…urgh. why can’t there be some sudden dramatic change like say such as winning the lottery so i can leave my miserable work behind and live happily ever after…:-) actually i don’t mind my actual work, it’s the people i have to deal with to do my work… as lately they’ve all been difficult, even down right mean. 🙁 and i’m too sensitive…one confrontation and my whole day is shot and maybe the next one as well. i hope there is light at the end of this tunnel but not you know the kind of white light you see when you’re dieing…any clues, ideas suggestions, greatly appreciated!!!

    • I feel the same. I like my work but the people aroumd me is making thinks dificult for me.

      I am capricorn i have pluto conjuct and uranus square sun.
      Last year was the most dificult year of my life and still dificult.

  8. Glad I found this site and fellow Aries, bracing/ dealing with Uranus conjunct/ Pluto square sun. My sun is 9 degrees Aries in the 10th house, with 20 degrees Cancer rising. So its pretty much a direct hit from both as I write. My job is stable, although I do feel the limitations daily. Doesn’t feel like anything major is happening there. The big issues have been surrounding my mother who has Alzheimer. I had to dismantle her home, her life, and put her in a nursing home. It has been very traumatic and heartbreaking watching her decline and not being able to do anything about it. My mother was always a stronger figure in my life than my father. Maybe she is represented in my chart by the sun. Also having relationship issues. In a relationship which doesn’t make a lot of sense, but not ready to end it. (Pluto is still in my 6th house).

  9. I landed on this page, and relate to all of you- from early 2012 through now I have been hung upside down like the Fool Card and shook hard from one continuous existential earthquake of loss, grief, and transformation. Hold on to the reins! We are on a still wild ride- April 2015.
    I’ve dis-covered the golden gift of opportunity to give up so much of what does not serve us- and open to the REAL love waiting for us to discover.

  10. Hi Jamie,
    I have a question regarding Uranus transits I am hoping you can address. How close does the Uranus transit have to be to the natal Moon to show an impact. When looking at Uranus transits, how many degrees away from the moon, or any other planet should we consider is close enough to initiate changes.

    I have natal moon at 22 degrees Aries and Uranus will be exact by June of this year. Will I feel the effects at 18 degrees or only when it is an exact hit at 22 degrees. My boyfriend and I broke up when Uranus was at 18 degrees (last summer) and I am not sure if it was triggered by Uranus approaching my moon or not. Will the upcoming exact hit of Uranus on my moon bring a reversal or could it possibly end our relationship for good.

    Thanks for your help. I am looking at solar arcs as well, but SA Uranus is also 3 degrees away from my natal Jupiter and I am wondering if it is close enough to make an impact or if these transits only work when exact.

    Thank you again, I LOVE your website.

    • Hi Lilah, I’m not up on solar arcs but with your Uranus transit, I say you feel the effect once it comes under one degree orb. The thing with Uranus transits is that you cannot predict what will happen, only that change is on the way.

  11. Thank you so much Jamie for this site I found by accident, very impressive. My BD is 4/19/66 at 11:57pm is that mean I’m a cusp with Taurus? In Chinese or Japanese it called me the Fire horse women which to them mean headstrong, stubborn and leadership…so to the old traditional no one would want to marry Fire horse women. I’m in a transitional among friendships and self discovery on my 50th birthday…. Let’s see where life takes me. My best friend went ghost on me this the 1st time anyone ever done this so I’m paying more attention to your site

    • Yes, I get you as 29 degrees Aries but the exact date of Uranus conjunct your Sun will depend on your place of birth.

  12. My boyfriend is Aries 4/11/85 and I am Virgo 9/13/85 both deacon 3. He was fired from his job 2/29/16 started new work for MUCH less pay on 3/21/16 and has been battling a very manipulative sibling (4/22/81) for several years (but mainly the past 2-3 months which the sibling has now began attacking myself)
    Can anyone give me any insight at all? When will things calm down? When will the sibling leave us alone? What can I do to help support my boyfriend through this time?

    Thank you

  13. Hi Jimmie* I have a question regarding Uranus conjunct my Ascendant in Aries 21 degrees (and Pluto square in the near future)* How strong is this influence compare to one it makes to Sun, and what is its nature ? Thank you*

    • The Pluto transit is not until at least 2018, far enough apart so you don’t have the horrible effect like those earlier had with Uranus square Pluto. I will write about this aspect and transit but I don’t think it affects your entire life as much as with the Sun. Perhaps more about personal relationships than anything else.
