Uranus Sextile Natal Mercury
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.
