Uranus: The Planet of Disruption (Case Study)

I’ve been going over key dates in my life and checking them against transits. A transit is when a planet moves through the zodiac and makes a connection with any of the placements in your natal chart, at an angle (say 60 or 90 degrees away), or crossing it directly. The direct transit is called a conjunction. It has a strong effect but whether it's easy or hard, to be confirmed.

Uranus is the planet of change, disruption and it also happens to rule Aquarius, my Sun Sign. It has a slow orbit though, taking 84 years to go around the zodiac. Uranus transits don’t happen that often, and with big Uranus transits, something disruptive happens out of the blue πŸ˜…

A funny thing to know about me is that from age 13 to 18 (8th grade to 1st year of college), I started the year at a different school each year. Six schools and three countries. And it didn't feel chaotic or hectic, despite the fact that I didn't like all of the schools. If you ever need advice on what makes school fun for teens, ask me. 

The first new school was the weirdest experience. My parents had been thinking of moving to a different city for a while. It was my last year of middle school - we moved and my three siblings and I were enrolled in traditional all girl/boy schools. The school system was very square. Lots of memorization with no creativity. Having been a straight A student, I failed my exams, but made good friends. Social life, thumbs up. Academics, thumbs down. It didn't last. Two months later, we visited our old haunt on Halloween - for a long weekend, and stayed. I graduated the 8th grade at my old elementary school. 

I won't bore you with the rest of the details - but four high schools over the next four years, hopping across the pond to Europe, and moving to Mexico City, senior year. Then I was off to college in Boston πŸ’œπŸ’œ

It’s been fun - with highs and lows. 

Today I had a look look at my astrology transits. Uranus, the planet of disruption retrograded over my natal Moon in Capricorn (crossed it backwards) the summer that we first moved, at age 13. That September, Uranus stopped its retrograde (backwards motion) at 18 degrees Capricorn and turned around; my Moon is at 19°. In November, when we'd already bailed on the relocation, Uranus crossed my Moon for the last time, in forward motion.  

> Uranus’s orbit around the zodiac lasts 84 years. Those months were a predictable time for me to experience impromptu changes around my natal Moon. The Moon is what you need to feel secure; it relates to your mom & home life. An interesting preparation for what would come next: Switzerland - Mexico - Boston - Mexico - London - and now Mexico City the past ten years. I do love spending time abroad. 

The moon in Capricorn seeks emotional & material stability. I created my own. Those teenage years I had a collection of photos on my wall, on a huge blue canvas. It traveled the world with me so that every new place felt like home. Blue relates to the sign of Cancer, an extension of your Moon, so to speak. Bring your home with you.
