THE TRANSIT OF URANUS to the NATAL PLANETS

URANUS TRANSITS: A brief, personal story and health suggestions – Lynn Koiner PMAFA – koiner@starpower.net

I used to think that Uranus did not affect me so much, not unless it was a “hard” aspect. In Capricorn, Uranian energy moved more slowly and it really did not affect me but, in Sagittarius (in 1970s and 1980s) and Aquarius, it moves quickly and I do feel it. The House Uranus was transiting did not always work for me, except in cycles such as Saturn or the progressed Moon.

Hard aspects from the transiting Uranus always want us to change something in our lives – change a job, change a relationship or change a limiting pattern in our lives.

URANUS & DISEASE: Uranus rules the rhythms of the body so it has a connection with the rhythm of the heart (some people need a defibrillator), the impulses of the nervous (sympathetic and autonomic) system (spasms, breathing, ringing in the ears), vision and metabolism. Uranus is negatively affected by sugar consumption. Primarily, Uranus causes inflammation through the over-stimulation of the nervous system. An anti-inflammatory diet and supplements are recommended. Rhythms of the body when impacted can cause leg spasms, asthma, colitis, cramps, jerky body movements and poor coordination, neuralgia (nerve pain), the pituitary gland specifically, stomach gas, valvular diseases. With inflammations, it affects the heart and the nerves. A cardiologist told me that plaque in the arteries does not cause a heart attack – it is the inflammation that causes the arteries to swell and block circulation. With the poor coordination, it can make an individual accident prone – accidents can occur to force a decision. Acupuncture and healing techniques that regulate the body’s energies are very helpful, along with the anti-inflammatory protocol.

TREMORS: When this aspect kicked in (Uranus in Aquarius opposing Mercury and Uranus in Pisces afflicting Sun-Moon), I felt like my fingers were stuck in an electrical outlet. I felt wired, hyper and there were times when I just wanted to crawl out of my skin. In turn, I went to the refrigerator and eat. Food seemed to ground and sooth but this ultimately made me feel worse. Even little skinny people felt the same way.

EXHAUSTION: In 2001, Uranus opposed my Mercury. At the same time, I was going through a Mars opposition for 7 months, a time of lowered energy when the body is on recharge. I did not have the energy to do what Uranus requires — physical activity. Those who have done best with Uranus say that they walked at lot or even jogged. While in Yugoslavia, I walked and climbed mountains and this was actually quite soothing, walking off that Uranian energy. Uranus can actually wear you out when you are just sitting still – feeling exhausted even though you have not done anything. I find that “calming” herbs work best when I cannot be physically active. At that time, I used the nervines from The Herb Finder. It seems that the Blue Vervain was the key calming ingredient. Sometimes I was so wired that I could not sleep (and this makes me hungry) so I took the Night Nervine — and I calmed down immediately.

Having Uranus strong in my natal chart, I observed that it has been difficult for me to get close to people – I would pull back, I would seem aloof and detached, and this was confusing to others. This was particularly noticeable with Uranus in Aquarius. My relationships with Water signs are most helpful because they are soothing and calming. I found it difficult to be around controlling Plutonians. I did not have the energy or patience for this behavior.

With Uranus afflicting Mercury, I needed to work on my communications and learn not to blurt things out in humor – something that I came to see as inappropriate. I wrote very long articles on Neptune and Pluto in the late 1990s. I can always send them as an attachment to those who request these.
My theory on outer planet transits is that they produce change by first stimulating some aspect of our electro-magnetic field. Pluto puts pressure on our astral body so that we become more clear about how we feel. Neptune speeds up the frequency in the etheric, causing the molecules of the etheric web to separate, making the vail between the seen and unseen more tenuous…and dissolving boundaries (also making us more sensitive). Uranus transits speed up the electrical currents stimulating the nadis, the etheric counterpart of our nervous system. This “wired” feeling stimulates us to make changes.
Sometimes having multiple outer planet transits occurring simultaneously can be better than just one transit. With just Uranus, I feel this planet full force. When I have had several outer planet transits, no one Planet seems to dominate – and it is easier, at least, energetically. Pluto squares tend to bring relationships into my life and this seems to work for others as well. These relationships are intense in some way and highly transformational…but I never regret them at all.

PAST TRANSITS:
Uranus in Pisces has been more of an activist than Uranus in Aquarius. It stimulates a strong emotional reaction to events in our lives. Since it is transiting my 7th House, the changes have come through others. Friends moved and this was stressful. The City Fathers decided to get rid of the local farmers and bring in an out-of-state group of professional farmers. Uranus in Pisces triggered a rage to defend my father’s position as a local farmer. The friends who helped me were also experiencing strong Uranus transits! For me, I was an activist in all local political activities.

CURRENT TRANSITS:
Uranus in Aries activates Cardinal planets in our chart – it generates crises, good and bad. This is especially true with Pluto in Capricorn, instigating Crises in the life that can stress the Adrenal/Thyroid and compromise the immune system. With the Adrenals, as in my own case, they can flatline and stop producing Cortisol. This can cause a major health crisis. The Hormone Saliva Test is excellent for testing this. A gynecologist can help with this or Life Extension or www.FuchsiaStars.com offer private testing.

There was a health issue that arose from the Uranus transit. First, I believe that I contracted the Epstein-Barr Virus because of a progressed Sun-Moon affliction to Transpluto.
However, Uranus caused this virus (because of a loss of cartilage in the lumbar spinal area) to go into this area of the nervous system.

Uranus, under the most difficult transits, can “fry” the nerves. After 2 years of horrible pain, I discovered that, using an anti-inflammatory diet (no sugar and define food allergies), anti-inflammatory supplements (Omega 3 4000mgs and Curcumin 800 mgs) and exercise, the pain went away. These supplements are soothing to the nerves in terms of inflammation.
I had to eliminate the inflammatory foods before the supplements would work.

However, I feel that herbal nervines and exercise are good for supporting the uncomfortable “wired” feeling.

Uranus causes inflammation. Uranus and Saturn together can cause a heart attack or stroke due to inflammation.

NOTE: There have been strong progressed alignments involving Chiron during this period. Chiron rules health issues that you have to learn to live with.

The EBVirus and the Postherpatic Neuralgia are permanent but they can be controlled through building up the immune system. Typical of Chiron, it is something that I must learn to live with.
Uranus afflicting planets in the 12th House causes insomnia.

URANUS & HEALTH UPDATE: After taking liquid Melatonin at night to sleep, under the stress of travel, my adrenal glands stopped working. They did produce small amounts of Cordisol at night but they flatlined when I got up in the morning. This caused morning headaches, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, dangerous heart arrhythmia and heart palpatations and exhaustion from doing a little exercise.
I had to good fortune to find an alternative medicine gynecologist for the first doctor I consulted, Dr. Zidi Berger, in Bethesda, Maryland. I will be writing a long article on this experience. I find that the Hormone Saliva Test is the best indicator for this.

She also found that my body was saturated with Melatonin. The normal range is between 1 and 21 – mine was over 600! I was in a constant Sleep State and this exhausted the adrenal glands. This is a very dangerous condition, especially when approaching a Neptune transit (which I will start in 2014). This can damage the heart muscle (see books by Dr. Stephen Sinatra).

I am now taking liquid DHEA to support the production of Cortisol. I take this twice a day and sometimes, when Chronic Fatigue sets in, I need to take it a 3rd time. I also take a small amount of Armour Thyroid (1/2 grain or 32 mgs). I have these medications compounded at a local pharmacy, The Village Green Apothecary. Some pharmacies obtain Armour Thyroid from companies based in India or China and they do not always work the same. Compounding pharmacies can be found around the country.

    Lynn, Thank you for this article…I learned a lot. I had never read that Uranus causes inflammation before and that explains a lot. I have Uranus in Cancer in the 12th and have auto-immune issues (mostly due to inflammation). I’ve taken notes and will research this further. xoxo

  2. Lynn Koiner Says:

    LEAKY GUT SYNDROME (8-2013): Doctors are now finding that many auto-immune diseases are caused by Leaky Gut Syndrome. Dr. John Pagano’s book, One Cause, Many Diseases, is an excellent resource.

    There is a syndrome for a missing gene, not uncommon, that causes high inflammation due to an inability to metabolize vitamin B. I wrote about this test by LabCorp on Common Cures but I only now found a cure — Cerefolin or pre-metabolized B that cures the inflammation.

    I do not have this problem so I put a B liquid from Vitamin Shoppe under my tongue 2-3 times a day. I have almost no inflammation which shocked me.

    Life extension offers a Food Safe test for major food INTOLERANCES (not allergies). If you have high inflammation, then you probably have food intolerances.

    In May-June, LEF offers this test to members really cheap. But it can be ordered any time.

    Later this month, I will write an article on Adrenal-Thyroid Dysfunction and the major health issues these create. Pluto and Uranus hitting Cardinal planets in your chart can deplete the adrenals.

    I often took Raw Adrenal Gland but now I take DHEA under my tongue daily.

    A good gynecologist can give these tests but you need to ask what they do.

    NEW INFORMATION: LGS has now been connected with SIBO, bad bacteria in the small intestine. This is often a cause for some Rheumatoid Arthritis. The cure has been found with ARGENTYN 23, a non-toxic form of colloidal silver.

  3. Charlotte Says:

    So helpful! I have found that the Uranus-Pluto square this week intensified my lethargy and inflamation although I think Neptune squaring my IC/MC in my 6th is helping me heal. I find that neptune rx cuts down illusions and clears the way to at least some answers. I have neptune rx opp merc rx (and venus direct) natally.

    I don’t know if you have experienced this but I haven’t been able to commit to anything over the past year & a half. I have moon conjunct saturn and moon conjunct uranus in sag and lately I’ve been all uranus. I want to connect and care about things but I just don’t anymore. And its been a difficult transition because I used to be incredibly driven and over-committed. I know I need this lesson but I also need a job & relationships but everything in me is pulling away from structured life.

    I would greatly appreciate any advice you may offer but I’m also grateful to have your articles to turn to.

  4. Lynn Koiner Says:

    CHARLOTTE (11-2013): Thank you for your insight on Neptune transiting R.

    What you are describing — “unable to commit to anything” can be associated with the over or under production of Cortisol. Both conditional produce the same effect — over-whelmed, avoidance, fatigue. Read my recommendations as they may prove helpful.

    I hear from so many clients with the same issues as they are responding to the Uranus-Pluto transits that impact the adrenals (and then the thyroid – low body temperature).

    Dear Lynn:

    Your site,research and recommendations are an absolute Godsend. You are such a brain trust! Next gratitude list I make…..you and your medical insights will be number one, natch. I’m nominating you for a Nobel or some astro equivalent. :)

    Cannot wait until I can benefit from your personal reading. May God bless you and keep you and yours.

    Best,

    Kari
    (enduring Uranus transit and s.node in 2H, massive weight gain, hairloss, and all the rest …is there no end to this cluster f….? lol

  6. Lynn Koiner Says:

    KARI (3-2014): Those symptoms are very familiar to me. Go to a really good Gynecologist who does adrenal-thyroid and female hormone testing.
    Regardless of your age, these hormones cause problems. Uranus and Pluto in Cardinal signs are causing a lot of people to have Cortisol swings. Just Google High Cortisol (low has similar symptoms).
    If you need hormones, insist upon the bio-identical creams as these have no side-effects.

  7. BATTAL Says:

    Hi, Thank you for sharing this issue in the open, i’m actually having the same problem since 2008 when Uranus conjunct my Sun, it started with a sudden strong heat beating while i was trying to sleep and when i’v arrive at the hospital it start to beat very fast over 120 beat per minutes and i was feeling near death experience, and after less an hour or so a sudden inflammation in my throat’s started with a fever, after a blood tests i got no answer, after that day it start back again for sometimes in the same year and since 2009 it start slowing down but i still get some pain in chest and throat inflammation on weakly basis !
    i went to many doctors and hospitals, and did heart Echo checks, ECG, Holter monitor, in different hospitals and time and no still got no answer,

    At that time i was coffee addicted ( 5 to 7 cups per day )
    later on i thought maybe it’s the coffee, so i got rid of it but as i said my heart is not the same as it was before 2008, now it start a sudden beat or get some pain before any inflammation start in my body, believe me if i told you that when i get a sudden beat or a pain in my heart i knew at that moment there’s gonna be inflammation somewhere in my body, just a minute later the inflammation start !

    BTW: Sorry about my English .

  8. Lynn Koiner Says:

    BATTAL (4-2015): Your English is just fine. You should know by now that Americans write English horribly – and they do not apologize for it.

    I have an article on what might be the source of the problem — too much cortisol being produced by the adrenals. Look for Pluto-Uranus under the Medical section. If you cannot find it, write to my privately.

    If the throat is a problem, it could be Acid Reflux caused my Cortisol. Let me know what you find.

  9. graeme Says:

    lynn, enjoying your articles immensely. began by googling illnesses from uranus as a friend with sun, uranus and mercury conj in aries (10th of ap ’32)at 19deg aries and mars in aries 5 deg has been ill with severe anxiety for just over a year. (and she hates astrology). cant remember other symptoms. i guess it could be adrenal burnout. maybe she does not want to change.
    in notes by a dr. william davidson, he writes that uranus rules spasms and tests on kidneys may not divulge its true state if done between spasms. as adrenals sit on the kidneys this may be applicable.
    re “battal”; as an osteopath in australia, i would also check out the upper thoracics and 1st and 2nd cervicals for alignment as this may also effect the heart.
    i have uranus inconj my mars and feel all my life to be “hot wired”. its also inconj my sun which is sextile my mars. a yod i believe. i have energy to burn, even at 78, and lots of yoga and physical activity has been essential.

  10. Nicole Says:

    Had to read this again; transiting Uranus is currently in my 6th house. Had a sonogram today they found a few small fibroids. I’m having hot flashes and problems sleeping. This week I plan on going in to get bloodwork to find out about my thyroid. No menses in almost three months and exhaustion.

    I also have Chiron in Aries sextile Saturn in Gemini in the 8th. Will be looking to alternative healing methods since doctors seem to be brushing off my symptoms.

  11. Lynn Koiner Says:

    NICOLE (9-2015): A few small fibroids is rarely a problem. HOT FLASHES are a problem. Usually Menopause starts with a Neptune transit, even a minor aspect.

    I prefer the bio-identical hormone creams obtained from a compounding pharmacy. A good gynecologist will know where to obtain these hormones. You seem to be going to lousy doctors. DO not give up.

    If the flashes are too bad and it will take awhile to get an appointment, I used 1600 IUs of vitamin E. This really worked but not good for the long haul. I prefer MIXED tocopherols, not D-Alpha.

  12. Nicole Says:

    I too believe I may be pre-menopausal. I’ll be 43 in March and transiting Neptune is currently in my 5th house conjunct natal Venus (ruler of my 1st and 8th) and square natal Neptune (ruler of my 6th house) another interesting fact is the asteroid Asclepius (Healing) which I have in Pisces @ 7 degrees in my 5th house as well. I was not aware of the fact that Neptune was associated with menopause! The doctor told me, “You’re too young.”

    I have no intentions of giving up. I know these doctors will write this off as “stress,” and nothing more. I will definitely look into vitamin E. Thank you for your patience, Lynn. It’s truly appreciated.
