The Uranus Cycle
The cycle of planet Uranus as it orbits around the Sun takes 84.3 Earth years. In astrology it is considered the planet of surprises and unpredictability. The Sun appears to be white but the light from the Sun does in fact send out a whole range of colors like red, blue, green and yellow. When the Sunlight come in contact with Uranus it is engrossed by its atmosphere. The clouds out in space act as a reflection and create a beautiful and colorful sight.

Discovered at the end of the 18th century, Uranus ushered in the age of revolution and he does no less on a personal level. There you are, all comfy cozy in that nifty rut you’ve dug for yourself. But wait, what’s that light in the distance and that low rumble? In a split second you realize that your rut is in the middle of the train tracks and the train just pulled out from the station. The resulting adrenaline rush doesn’t leave much time for the wide eyed “caught in the headlights” Bambi stare.
During the cycle of planet Uranus it will transit through many of your signs and houses in your horoscope in your life time.

The Square to your Natal Uranus
You will have this aspect happening twice in your life. The first one will happen when you are in your early twenties and has become an adult. This aspect will bring out the rebellious nature in you and you will want to challenge old established ways and discover your own unique way of doing things. The second time you will have this aspect will be when you are in your early sixties.
The next major Uranus – Uranus transit will be in your late twenties and what ever restriction you have felt from your younger years will now be dealt with. The realization that you are an adult now hits you if you have not already acknowledged that. You are now in search of your independence from anything that may be holding you back such as groups you have been part of, they may no longer have the same attraction.
The Opposition to your Natal Uranus
This is a very important time in your life. This aspect happens when you are in your early forties and most people undergo a big transformation in their lives at this time. It is a time where you may feel you have reached middle age and realize that you have not fulfilled your dreams yet. Now you want to go ahead and listen to what that inner voice deep inside you is telling you to do before it is too late. Some people break up relationships that are no longer working while others move to a place where they can create a better lifestyle for themselves.
What ever happens under a powerful aspect of this planet is something that has been sitting deep in your subconscious mind for a long time. When transiting Uranus comes into aspect with your natal Uranus then it awakens those feelings and dreams you may have and challenges any strict structure you have put up for yourself.
The cycle of planet Uranus will bring some upsetting, sudden and unexpected changes in your life but remember it is usually for your own good in the long run.
