Uranus electrifies. But what if you’re already electrically live and a Uranus transit sends you over the edge with sparking animation?
Uranus and Pluto hit both my Moon and my Venus over the last few years. I’d thought myself a sensitive individual before, but I wouldn’t have said I was overly anxious. This transit threw my nervous system into overdrive, sometimes unbearably so.
I was wrong about not being anxious before. I was anxious in a way I could handle. Had I not had this transit, I’d have lived that way forever, and it kept me from taking steps I needed to take.
You don’t grow until you have a reason to grow. We want to grow, don’t we? If we want improved lives, we do. The challenge of a rough transit hones our skills in a way that primes us to improve exponentially once handled.
I’m finished with my transit. I still wake with physical anxiety off the charts. That may change as I get more distance, but it doesn’t matter. I buzz so hard it feels like my body is trembling. But emotionally I’m solid. Because I’ve learned something.
It’s akin to being in prison, like the bird man of Alcatraz. There is no physical condition you can’t free yourself from when you employ your mind and heart. Mind, body, and heart: Any of these can have transits that trouble. We can find a work-around with the others.
It’s only a problem if I am unaware that my mind and heart are free. I wake and feel the trembling and think: This will normalize when I get my body moving to match my electricity level. Then my heart soars because even through depression I have a reason to get up. The depression lifts when every morning I feel that joy that comes from having agency over my situation.
So here’s another method I developed to combat anxiety about having enough. It can be about not having enough money, or love, or energy, or time…
It’s like a car. I always feel anxious when I get below a quarter tank of gas. I feel generally anxious that something mechanical will fail. I feel anxious that the car won’t last as long as I need it to. But I’ve learned that I can only fill one tank of gas at a time. I can only deal with a problem once it happens. If my car doesn’t last, I can’t help that now. It’s working now. It has gas now. I’ll fill it when the tank gets down to a quarter.
That anxiety handled, I apply that thinking to any anxiety that rears its head. I don’t have enough money in the bank for next month’s bills! ANXIOUS FEELING… It’s like a gas tank that’s a quarter full. I have time to fill that tank with bills money by the time it comes due. The feeling is there to remind me to take care of it before it hits empty! Thank you feeling! The feeling has a purpose, to alert me to an upcoming condition. When you realize your anxiety has a purpose to help you, it feels altogether different.
It’s alerting you to a future condition. It’s not NOW. That’s what anxiety is: future oriented fear. If it were now, we’d experience it as an urge rather than that buzzing irritation. It’s an ALARM. You can separate the alarm from your response by not giving it more attention than it warrants. You hear the alarm. You turn it off. You consider yourself informed. You separate your emotional self from that process. You can be grateful for the warning. That is the appropriate emotional response. Your inner self is reminding you of things getting down to a quarter tank.
And with a heightened level of anxiety? Sometimes our gauge for the tank level is faulty. You can learn to adjust for that as well. Use your mind; remind yourself. But usually it’s not faulty, It’s more sensitive than the gauge of others. That means you’re more attuned. There no need to suffer for that. Consider yourself exceptional, not faulty.
We can do this!
Like a car trip, we can only go so far in a day. You can’t drive from Washington to Washington in one day, or two, or three. I don’t remember how many days it takes, but even at top speed, the point is not to get there FAST. What did you see? Who did you meet? How many milkshakes did you get to have?
Uranus encourages us to get going and get up to speed. It also encourages us to cure our boredom. It can prompt us to feel like we ought to go faster than we really need to. But that’s really all in our individual interpretation. Get going and get engaged. But pace yourself for the pleasure of your own purposes.
Where does natal Uranus hit everything in your own chart? This is a great way to gauge how your natural response to Uranus will show up. If you have Uranus in aspect to Moon or Mars (or angles), any Uranus transit can heighten your tendency to feel anxious.
