Astrological transits are a part of what is usually called predictive astrology, the claim of astrology to predict or forecast future trends and developments. Most astrologers nowadays regard the term 'prediction' as something of a misnomer, as modern astrology does not claim to directly predict future events as such. Instead it is claimed that an astrological pattern with regard to the future can correspond with any one of a variety of possibilities. What is in fact foretold is the trend of circumstances and the nature of the individual's reaction to the situation
Uranus shakes things up. It ?electrifies?, sometimes literally. Neptune is the mystic who Feels. Uranus is the genius who Knows. It is said that genius and madness have only a thin line between them. Uranus erases that line. Whether it brings total chaos or revolutionary new advances (frequently both) its effects are never dull. Whatever it contacts as it transits around your horoscope will be changed, usually with dramatic suddenness. Pluto may subvert and destroy. Uranus turns things upside down. Now don?t go off thinking that Uranus is Always going to do this. Many times, all a Uranus transit does is make us restless. We don?t know what it is we want to change, but we know we want to change something. Our behavior will tend to change as we try new things, or do old things in different ways. Just remember though, that when Uranus hits, don?t go crazy with it. Make changes, but do them slowly. The big danger with Uranus transits is that they tend to make us rush in where angles fear to tread. That is what can cause trouble. With a little extra caution and planning, most Uranus transits can become positive experiences.

You need to expect much more sudden and explosive events in your life during this time as the restrictions and limitations in your life will start to cause you to feel imprisoned or trapped and may make you feel the need to break away in your personal and professional life.
Mars represents the masculine will to act and if you cannot act then this energy can end up becoming repressed which may result in anger or possibly even violence. The Uranus energy represents the need for individuality and freedom within your life and expressing that energy within your life. If you find that your job or lover restricts your need to express yourself this time it could be quite dangerous. Even if you are not prone to anger or violence, accidents or sudden illness are more likely as your body takes over your mind in expressing these repressed energies.
You may be feeling the need to take more risks in your life and this rebellious self-assertion could get you into trouble with authority figures or the law. Trying to live as you normally have may be increasingly difficult if not impossible. It is important to be cautious in your approach and you will be able to make revolutionary changes in your life that will benefit you in the long term.
