What are transits?
In astrology, transits refer to how the planets in the sky move and interact with the planets in your birth chart. These transits can activate different points in your chart and bring about certain themes or energies in your life.
Transits of Uranus
Uranus is often referred to as the "Great Awakener" and is associated with sudden changes, breakthroughs, and liberation. When Uranus transits a planet or point in your birth chart, it can bring about unexpected experiences that shake up your routine and push you towards personal growth and evolution.
Depending on which planet or point Uranus is transiting, the effects can be different for each individual. For example, if Uranus is transiting your natal Sun, you might feel a strong desire for freedom and self-expression, and you may want to break free from any limitations or restrictions that have been holding you back. If Uranus is transiting your natal Venus, you might experience sudden changes in your relationships or financial situation, and you may feel a desire for more excitement and novelty in your life.
Overall, a Uranus transit can be both exciting and disruptive, and it's important to stay open and adaptable to whatever changes come your way during this time. It's worth noting that the effects of a Uranus transit can extend beyond the exact date of the transit itself and may influence your life for several months or even years. Not only the exact duration of the transit depends on your birth chart and exact placements, the interpretation of the transit is also highly dependent on the exact composition of your birth chart. It is impossible to give an exact interpretation without doing a professional transit reading, however, we can delineate themes and overall energies of each transit of Uranus.
