Sun Quincunx Uranus Natal and Transit

Sun Quincunx UranusSun quincunx Uranus in the natal chart creates inner tension which makes you express yourself in eccentric or original ways. Without change, stimulation or excitement, your inner tension will rise. You have a tremendous amount of creative energy but if you are not channeling into work or play it will build up inside you.

This build up of electric energy is often felt as nervous tension, anxiety and changeability. As you begin to anticipate change or excitement you may become irritable and jumpy. As the energy and tension continues to rise while you remain idle or underperforming, a certain critical point is reached where the energy must used.

If you don’t put this high charged electric energy to good use it will make you erratic, agitated,  disruptive, rebellious and arrogant. This built up energy would then escape your body in an uncontrolled way as sudden outbursts, rash actions or accidents.

Suppression of your unorthodox style, strange actions or independent streak through discipline by parents, teachers or other authority figures will only escalate and amplify the build up of unstable potential energy. The same process will occur if you try to avoid activity or hide your eccentricity.

You really must accept that you are different and get comfortable with the idea. When you accept your peculiarities you should find that you do not reject other ways of living or believing or doing. Everyone is different. You are just more different.

Do you automatically rebel or lash out when told what to do? This may be Uranus acting without conscious oversight. Losing control of how your energy leaves your body brings a life of sudden change and chaos. Chose to change in your own way then you will not be forced to accept the changes you don’t want.

You can change how you express your energy through your identity. You have abundant creative intelligence which can manifest in a positive way through music, art, science or the occult. Be more flexible and open to change so that you can go with the flow of your energy instead of fighting against it.

Do your own thing within reason. You have to experiment and push the boundaries of social and moral standards to satisfy your appetite for excitement and adventure. However, is most important to learn to keep some things so yourself. A tendency toward openness can cause unwanted drama, exposure, loss of face and ostracism.

Transiting Sun quincunx Uranus can make you nervous, tense and anxious. You will find it hard to settle and relax as your intuition sensing change or some drama on the way. A build up of energy in your system can feel exciting but also a little scary. If you have been restricted or bored lately you will seek more freedom and creative self-expression.

Pressure to change can come from someone with some power over you. An unexpected event, accident or change at work may force you to change your routine, behavior or plans. It is important to be flexible and adapt to changing conditions. Try to go with the flow and fit in. If you resist change and become arrogant or disruptive you will suffer losses or miss out on an important opportunity.

Being stubborn or overreacting would also damage your position and prospects. An adjustment is needed whether you are forced to make changes or you find a different way forward  yourself. You don’t need to totally change direction but rather make adjustments. Doing something a slightly different way could make all the difference, making life easier for yourself and those around you.

This is a good time to experiment and make minor changes and alterations. Do not go too far or be too daring, otherwise you may have to start all over again. The changes occurring now will be difficult to undo at a later stage.

Sun Quincunx Uranus Celebrities

Nancy Spungen (0°03′) was the girlfriend of Sid Vicious from the 1970’s punk band, the Sex Pistols. From early on she had to deal with change (Uranus) as her father (Sun) was a travelling salesman. She was highly intelligent but very rebellious and displayed violent and erratic behavior, eventually being diagnosed with schizophrenia at the age of fifteen. Nancy did not cope with the tension, the continual build up and release of energy that the quincunx brings. This tension heightened by the nervous, disruptive and erratic energy of Uranus. So intelligent, she started university at age sixteen but was soon kicked out. Four years later she died in a violent, frenzied knife attack.

Although the composer Franz Schubert (0°20′) died at an early age, he expressed the Uranian brilliance and creativity in a much more positive way. His music was seen as modern and very original at the time.

Rodney King (1°05′) was beaten by police in 1991 after a car chase. The publicity led outrage and the LA race riots. His identity (Sun) became the focus of Uranian rebellion and violence.

Prince William (1°23′) has obviously had to adjust to sudden, unexpected events, after the early death of his mother. Because of his place in life, he cannot outwardly express the unorthodox nature of Uranus. I gather he finds expression in private, through his occult studies.

David Bowie (1°26′), like Schubert, is known as a very original musician, innovative and ahead of his time. His early flamboyance and androgyny are keywords for Uranus, a healthy expression of the ego (Sun).

    • Not at all, especially with the Sun involved. I use 3 degrees for the quincunx for luminaries (Sun and Moon), then 2.5 degrees for other planets.
