Transiting Uranus has an 84 year cycle. In other words it takes Uranus approximately 84 years to circulate the Zodiac and move back to its original position at the time of your birth. During this cycle, Uranus trines its natal position twice (in a life time). Uranus’ first contact by trine is around the age 28 closely aligning with your first Saturn return, and the second will be at age 56, which is a couple of years prior to your second Saturn return. Both of these positions will vary from individual to individual primarily because of the location of transiting Uranus as well as Natal Uranus by house position.

The first trine of Uranus to Uranus is significant because of the massive changes that occur due to the trine but also because of the Saturn return. The Trine to Uranus initiates a desire for change and the want to break free, (begin anew or start over) so that we can utilize the experiences learned through life to that point.

Uranus wants to shake things up and a trine usually suggests affirmative changes and a desire to break free from the influence of our parents and sometimes our peer group because this time is often referred to as the transition from young adult to a more mature individual wanting to meet their personal responsibilities.

We will want to be able to do the things we want to do and be able to express ourselves more precisely more now than at any other time prior to this period.

With the Saturn return quickly at the heels of this trine to Uranus, responsibilities are sure to come our way and rather quickly. This is a time of gaining inner strength and resilience so we are ready for whatever Saturn’s return will bring. This includes finding a suitable mate if we do not already have an appropriate one, finding an occupation that suits our ever changing needs, which I promise will settle after the Saturn return, and to break free of any restrictive life influences that have been holding us back to this point.

The second trine at the age of 56 is quite different in that we are now in a totally different state of mind and look at life from a different vantage point. We, now under this influence, are not setting the stage for what was important in life when we were 28, as settling into a vocation and raising a young family are now behind us.

Initially, the second trine of Uranus is a time of reflection and reviewing of where we have reached now in life, especially from the time of our Uranus opposition to its birth position at age 42. The changes we made at that stage in our life have taken us to this trine period. We will now evaluate our life experiences and our achievements. In many cases, we will be readying ourselves for retirement which is often the focus in life during the second Saturn return in 2 to 3 years following the second Uranus trine.

We will once again re-evaluate our life’s work and make some decisions on where we would like to go in the next several years. We may work towards early retirement and set the stage for what comes next. Some make massive changes under this influence and as long as we take the time we require to think things over, we will probably be ready once our second Saturn return is in full activation or nearing its conclusion.

What is important now differs from what we experienced in the first trine period as now our personal needs must be met and we will make whatever changes that will push us in our intended direction.

During this trine, it is suggested that we take the time to set a course that will eventually take us to where we might want to see our self in approximately seven years from now (when Uranus makes it second square to itself at age 63).

The second Uranus trine is usually an exciting time which includes a change of direction, one which is required by the soul personality to take us where you need to go.

Both of these periods can be disruptive as sometimes change is inevitable and sudden but under most conditions the final outcome is positive in its nature.

Prepare yourself for change and evolution and an awakening of self. The self that will morph after this aspect may not be recognizable compared to the self of the past.
