Transits & Placements That Disrupt Your Sleep

sleepYesterday, I was talking to a gal with five planets and her angles in Fixed signs. She’s headed for a spectacular Uranus transit.

I mentioned, she could expect to lose sleep during this transit. Uranus is called, “The Awakener”. Stupid sounding but real. You have this electrical-type current running through you. Bam! You’re awake.

I told her that a person doesn’t require as much sleep during these periods, but still, it does disrupt your life.

Planets in the twelfth house, natally or by transit, tend to mess with your dreams. It’s pretty common that Saturn in the twelfth house (transit of natal) produces dreams that scare a person.  The fear can actually disable you.

I’ve had Pluto transiting my 12th for years now. The other night, I dreamed I died on the table during my spine surgery.  There are two surgeries planned, over the course of two days. I died during the first one; I could tell by my position on the table. I understand, you breathe in life. In my dream, life was expelled through my mouth. Gross, I know but I want to make a point.

When your sleep is disrupted, there is often a silver lining. This is the case in both examples provided…

When Uranus wakes you up; often enough, it’s with some brilliant idea or insight. There can be some junk in there too, but some of the stuff that breaks loose is truly interesting and advances you, dramatically.

In the case of my Pluto-death-dream, I don’t think that what I dreamed is what’s going to happen. It’s what I am afraid will happen, subconsciously.  This stuff surfaces in a dream so it can be processed.

Obviously, there are more transits, placements or astrological situations that will disrupt your sleep. I figured I’d start this and invite you to share your knowledge or experience.

What can you tell us about astrology and sleep?



Transits & Placements That Disrupt Your Sleep — 17 Comments

  1. I am waking up every hour on the hour. dealing with restless leg syndrome.The rest of the day is spent groggy. My daughter thinks its sleep apnea. Probably is. Uranus is having a transit to my 6th.

    • I completely sympathise with your situation. Restless leg syndrome is awful. I started getting that recently. The legs take on a life of their own and it’s impossible to sleep. Then I read on an RLS forum that liquid potassium citrate helps. Tried the suggested dose of 5 mil in 200 mil of water. Problem solved! A few doses and I was cured. It does mean more frequent trips to the toilet, however. Magnesium oil sprayed on the calves also works well. Hope this helps.

  2. It’s the mars in pisces and Neptune transits that pushed Pluto in my 12th to produce shitful dreams. I have Uranus in the 4th so I sleep badly because of my room conditions

  3. When Uranus first entered Taurus, it was squaring my sun & mercury. The increased nervous energy made it very difficult, and often impossible to sleep.
    I have never been a long, deep sleeper. This is funny, because I do have my natal sun in 12th. I guess you could say, it’s harmoniously aspected (trine moon pluto). Maybe the Pluto energises me.

  4. that eclipse in sagittarius at the beginning of the month? i couldn’t sleep.

    i woke up at like 530 pm the day before, left on a 9 hour drive during the hour it was active, tried to sleep at 1030 that night and barely managed 4 hours of restless sleep before i was awake again.

    slept fine the next night tho.

  5. I have transiting Neptune in my 12th house and my dream world is very rich. MOst nights I remember my dreams but I still have a hard time figuring out which are just my subconscious dealing with the day I had and which are telling me something.

  6. I have virgo uranus in my 12th conjuncting my virgo pluto natally. I occasionally wake up from my dreams with an emotion floating on the surface. They both trine my taurus moon in the 8th so it usually involves someone Im deeply emotionally connected to…about something they are going through. Ill mention it to them and they stare and talk about something they just experienced. Usually involving death or dispair or some strong emotion.I also sometimes wake up spouting something or rather about some random country. Next you read in the news they had protests or a forest fire…or something.. I mostly process them as manifestations of some anxiety of mine but I think when I sleep I on occasion pick up earth vibes. But I attribute that to the 12th house I think.

  7. Saturn just went retrograde over my ascendant, having a hard time staying awake this week. I can fall asleep at any time during the day even. Has anyone associated this with Saturn, or am I looking at the wrong cause?

  8. I have natal Uranus conjunct Moon and Ascendant from the 12th house and have had bouts of insomnia most of my life, very often when I’m either getting a transit to my natal Uranus or when transiting Uranus is in aspect to any of my natal planets.

    • Thanks Les. I also have Mars at 1 degree Aquarius on the ascendant, so perhaps Saturn conjunct my Mars, as it did last week, was more of the cause of my sleepiness.

      • Yeah, I would think Saturn transiting Mars would put a real damper on physical energy, especially if your Mars needs rest. Saturn would tell Mars to cool it if you’ve been overdoing!

        When Saturn transited my Uranus it nicely slowed down my Uranus over-amped energy and actually was calming. Saturn moving into my 1st was so much better than transiting my 12th where it’s hidden – with Saturn being in your face in the 1st it’s clearer what to do whereas it feels out of your control in the 12th.

  9. I was pretty wired during the beginning of the Uranus transit, didn’t sleep much last summer, but I blame that on karaoke and falling in love and whatnot.

    Nowadays, without either, I am sleeping fairly well.

    • Almost ALL my progressed planets are now in Capricorn – my natal 12th house. Only my progressed Moon is in the natal 1st house along with Mars.

      Insomnia, sleepless nights, anxiety – you name it. I have some serious cleaning out to do.

      Transitting Pluto and Saturn in Capricorn (12H) is squaring my Pluto/Saturn conjunction in Libra. Lots of fear, anxiety, bad sleep etc.
      Jupiter only make the problem bigger…

      As I have Uranus and Saturn-ruled Ascendant in Aquarius, every f*cling transit to them activates their natal constellation as well. Something’s gotta die and I know I will be well for it – but gawd I am tired of sleepless nights ?
      Eating melatonine like candy these days….

  10. Generally I have a hard time to fall sleep when transit moon is in aries, it squares my moon and stuff in 1st house. Had transit saturn in 12th, no bad dreams. Had transit pluto in 12th no bad dreams but some sort of panic while trying to sleep, it was just for 3-4 weeks, whilst it was conjunct my rising from the 12th and then it was gone.

  11. I have Venus and the moon in the 12th house natally. I am a heavy sleeper and will fall asleep before my head hits the pillow. It’s bad, my son’s have all taken advantage of this and I will wake up in the middle of the night to pee, and my boys will be up at 2 am watching tv! Same thing with lovers, I will be in the bed cuddling and talking, hoping something is hot around the corner next thing I know it’s morning time! I just can not help it and think sometimes I go to sleep when I blink!

  12. Breath = Pneuma = Spirit = Life
    Your dream was correct.

    I hope you come through your surgery great.

    When Mars was transiting my 12 house a few years back I had a nightmare that Cheney was going to drop an atomic bomb on Iran, and it was
    goi to be a huge conflaguration. I was so upset about it I posted about it on a different forum than this one (it was about 12 years ago). Someone who answered the post stated it was because Mars was transiting by 12th house and not to worry about it, as Mars was stirring things up. Years later it came out that Cheney had discussed dropping an atomic bomb on Iran, so the fears were not unfounded. Thank goodness it did not happen.
