Uranus Opposite Sun Transit

Uranus Opposite Sun TransitUranus opposite Sun transit presents challenges as you feel the consequences of rapid or unexpected changes in your life. The unpredictable nature of the changes means that you are likely to be on edge a lot of the time and have to react quickly to changing circumstances.

Uranus not only represents change but also freedom and higher awareness. With the opposition, it may be that your freedom is challenged or that you are not able to express your individuality as freely as you would normally. Stability and security may be difficult to maintain under this influence, both in the material world, within your own psyche, and with relationships.

Learning to adapt to change will be a key theme during this time. Tension may build-up due to unforeseen circumstances or from other people changing their behavior or attitude to you. Understanding the reasons why you are experiencing this is very important. Fortunately, the higher self-awareness from Uranus allows you to look at yourself from a detached point of view. To see if it is, in fact, you expressing the erratic or unbalanced energy which these other people are mirroring back to you.

This is key to dealing with this disruptive energy because any arrogance or unwillingness to adapt and take it higher, could lead to explosive outbursts or ego conflicts. That would only exacerbate the tension or nervousness associated with this transit.

  1. I thought Uranus opposition was when I was 42, which for me was 1999……born9.23.1957. was it with this being now?

    • The ‘Uranus opposition Uranus’ happens around age 42.
      Is that what you are referring to?

      Uranus opposition Sun, is something else entirely.

  2. Wow, my sister is a first decan libra and had a total 180 in her personality. She got married to someone whom is very conservative, ditched all of her friends (she used to be extremely social), hardly talks to her family now (she didn’t tell some of them she got married) and got down to 100 lbs. I was very worried about her, but am hopeful all will get settled after these stressful transits. I miss her old free spirited self as she is very “controlled” now.

    • I have been the same. I am a first decan LibRan and used to be just the way you spoke about your sister and have changed pretty much the same way that she has. When i read what you wrote i thought someone had written about me 🙂 didn’t have identical events but very very similar. It has been painful. I wonder when will this transit get over !

      • It is now 2016 and I am a late degree Libra. Your stories interested me because Uranus is opposing my sun and I am having the reverse of what you described. 12 years ago I shut down in order to fit into a certain time in my life. Now, I can’t do it anymore. I refuse to be that person. I’m capable of so much more. I hope the early Librans written about are doing well. Peace to you.

  3. Does anyone know what kind of changes could bring Uranus ( from 8 house) making opposition on Sun ( 2 house )? Thank u.

    • I am having this Transit right now, two times exact.I moved to other town , new apartment, new environment,meeting new people.So far only positive changes for me. I’am expecting one exact transit in December.Maeby its because i have Uranus trine Jupiter , and sextile Md in the same time.
      I was expecting some hard time with this, but so far so good :):):)

      Wish you all the best to, my Libras :):):)

      • Good point, it does matter a lot if you have other transits occurring at the same time. For example in a couple of weeks Uranus will conjunct my IC for the first time. Could mean unsettling changes at home but on the same day Jupiter is trine my Jupiter so it should be good changes.

        • My last exact Uranus opposition Sun is 21 12 2012..What would that mean?
          I cant wait to feel that energy ..

  7. i was born on 21 September. So i had this opposition during the april 2008 March 2011 window.
    It was the most unexpected roller coaster ride of my life. Check out.
    In early 2008 i fell in love with the most unlikely mate who turned out to be a con man. Got pregnant unexpectedly in June. Married unexpectedly in an unconventional way in September shocking all my friends and family. Contemplated abortion many times.
    Had the baby by Cesarian due to unexpected medical conditions in march 2009. The guy abandoned me and the baby and ran away June. I had another surgery in July. I had to sell my household items and relocate under stress in August. Had to hunt down the run away ex September/october in CIA style. Left the baby with my parents and went abroad under stress December.
    Faced police/court/legal situations January 2010. Met another nice guy unexpectedy February. Many ups and downs in the relationship thereafter. Started a job working in a risky war zone in March.
    Got my son baptized under unusual conditions May. My best friend of many years dumped me without a word in June. Exotic holiday with boyfriend in August. Legal divorce from other guy in October.

    Started learning Astrology in January 2011. Broke up with the boyfriend March. Started dating his boss unexpectedly April. His contract ended and went away in June. Met a celebrity guy in July who changed my whole attitude toward relationships.

    In August 2011, returned home and slowly started normalizing.

    I think the roller coster was further fueled by the fact that my sun in Virgo is part of an intense stellium (venus, sun, mars, pluto, vertex) and in the fifth house of romance/children. Transiting Pluto T squaring Uranus and this stellium gave more intensity to the series of events i think.

    Jamie, one question, in mid April 2014, Uranus will oppose my Vertex. At that time there will also be a transiting grand cross between Uranus, Jupter, Mars and pluto. (mars corner will be on vertex) The grand cross becomes exact within one degree of the vertex.
    Simultaneosly saturn will be on my Descendant within 2 degrees. At the time i will also have a progressed full moon opposing a progressed stelllium of venus, Mars, Mercury, Sun.

    What could happen?

  8. Thank you Jamie, I hope in ‘nice’ dramatic way…..:)

    I have had enough drama for the life, during the 2008-2011 period. I just realized even saturn was transiting my virgo stellium during that window. So it was a Saturn-Pluto-Uranus T square on a red hot natal stellium (of venus, sun, mars, pluto, vertex) The story i narrated was in fact a summerized version. If i were to write week on week, there would be an ‘aha’ event almost every week continously for 2 years!

      • Any aspects that Uranus makes to your Sun I mention in your monthly horoscope. I have not mentioned it much in the last couple of months as Uranus has been on the cusp of decans 2 and 3.

  9. Hi Jamie,
    Uranus is in my 5th house. What sort of challenges could this opposition bring in my life? I thought of relationships, but I am single at the moment. Could it be more about creative projects as I am writing my dissertation?

  10. Hey astrologyking,
    I’m just finding out I’m having this testy transit along with my uranus square uranus (21 years old) starting in the middle of 2017 and I’m looking to go to college. Is there anything I should be keeping an eye on during these difficult transits?

  11. I’m fond of your blog. I’m under this transit right now, first perfect opposition occurred on June 18. I had a heart attack, 48 years old. Glad that besides a stent, I’m perfectly fine and recovered completely. I just wonder what the retrograde will bring on October 22, and how it will be the final passage in April 9 2022.

  12. I am a Scorpio second decane, right now Uranus 1 degree from exact opposition to my Sun and I will be having this transit for the next 1,5 years. My husband has moved out and we are getting amicable divorce; I am volunteering, finding new friends and a job. During our marriage I lived like a hermit, was depressed and lonely, now I feel alive again. I literally feel like I am starting my life over. I am also meeting very interesting and attractive men, the kind I never thought I would date :)) Money is still an issue, but I am working on it.

    So far – all the changes have been unexpected but very positive.
    I have natal Sun conjunct Uranus, I have a pretty Uranian personality.
    Good luck to everyone, just be adaptable and open-minded.

    (Many years ago I had transit Uranus square my Sun, my relationship broke off, I emigrated to another country for my dream job))

  13. Your post I am replying to was written several years ago. Uranus is opposing my Sun now (exact in a few days but I can already feel it), and like you did when Uranus opposed your Sun, I feel a freeing I have not felt in so long I can’t remember; I too had overadapted for too long. I wonder what path your new freedom has cut since 2016, 7 years ago now. I hope to a discovery of space in a vibrant authentic peace. All my best.
