Uranus Re-enters Aries ~ March 11, 2011 to 2018/2019

Uranus va National Geographic

Uranus leaves Pisces for good and joins Jupiter and Mercury in transiting Aries on March 11th. Uranus began his transit in Pisces in 2003. He first left Pisces for Aries last year and stayed for a few months in Aries before returning to Pisces. Now, Uranus re-enters Aries on March 11 at 4:49 p.m. PST / 7:49 p.m. EST, where he remains until 2018/2019. He will not return to Pisces again for another 84 years, approximately.

As written on my original Uranus in Aries post:

Uranus is the awakener, the mover and shaker of the zodiac. His goal is change/improvement for the masses at any cost, even at the cost of chaos or a revolution. Uranus represents humanitarianism, unconventionality, unpredictability, indifference, freedom, technological advancements, and loyalty to its cause. Uranus' energy is radical, disruptive, rebellious, revolutionary, and innovative.

Aries is the trailblazer of the zodiac. Aries energy is bold, individualistic, independent, enterprising and can be impulsive, pushy, abrasive, and bossy. It's an impatient energy that needs to constantly be in a dynamic state -- gotta be moving, gotta be doing, gotta be making things happen. Aries represents the self, the ego, our volition, our potential.

Uranus in Aries is the period for asserting the self, its needs and wants. It is a time for breaking away from dependence and finding one's own strength for self-reliance and self-motivation. I am independent. I am strong. I am significant. I matter. I can do it. I can make it happen. I can get it started. I can because I am. This is a time for discovering or re-discovering and connecting or re-connecting with the self and its raw, passionate, instinctive drives to be the main motivator in formulating goals and getting them accomplished. Remember that Uranus governs the unexpected so, be flexible enough to expect the unexpected -- find opportunities in the least likely places or connections; formulate unique solutions to common or existing problems; tweak an old method and make it more effective; break away from boundaries and think outside the box.

Last year when Uranus transited Aries from May to August 2010, Uranus became an active participant of the Cardinal T-Square between Jupiter/Uranus in Aries opposing Saturn in Libra, while all three were square Pluto in Capricorn. Some of us may still be personally going through the effects of this t-square. This year, an equally tense celestial climate surrounds Uranus' re-entrance into Aries.

As of the writing of this post, we remain under the challenging alignment between Jupiter in Aries and Pluto in Capricorn which finally culminated on February 25th and full impact may not actually be realized for several more months, maybe years. Jupiter gives the optimism to push for ideals/aspirations; Aries gives the courage and strength to push fast and hard; Pluto purges and focuses on putting an end to what no longer serves; Capricorn represents the status quo. Domestic and global current events reflect the unrest of this Jupiter-Pluto square. Expect the unexpected globally and in our own personal world as Uranus' revolutionary energy gets mixed into the current celestial climate.

Uranus' transit in Aries brings another rare but long lasting planetary alignment - Uranus square Pluto. Their alignment will perfect on occasions - 2x each in 2012, 2013 & 2014, and once in 2015. A square is the most difficult and challenging relationship between two or more planets. It is an impatient energy that requires action. A square is conflict, war between two celestial bodies. There is a need to create something birthed from inside us and to manifest that creation out into the world -- may it be in your own personal world, your immediate environment or something that influences many.

Although we are all influenced by Uranus' transit in Aries, the intensity and degree of influence will fluctuate throughout the 7-year transit and the timing will also depend on our birth chart's planetary and house placements. Additionally, those with cardinal Sun signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn); those with Natal Uranus in Cancer (born approximately 1949 to 1956) or in Libra (born approximately 1968 to 1975) or in Capricorn (born approximately 1988 to 1996); and those with Chiron in Aries (born approximately 1969 to 1977) may feel the effects more strongly than others.

To get an idea of how Uranus' transit in Aries might influence you, look to the Aries-ruled natal and/or solar house/s of your birth chart. Match the sign with the house cusp/s on your birth chart. Use the list of zodiac signs below to identify the Aries zodiac sign on your birth chart.
