When Uranus transits the 5th house, it signifies that children, love affairs and the creative side of life are about to experience some changes. This is because Uranus rules reinvention, trying something different and experimenting with inner potential. And the 5th house tells us something about our hobbies and what we like to do for fun, and you know that “pastimes” are really a way of expressing our childlike self, it’s the part of us that enjoys creating for fun. This part of our life can represent literal children or something that is birthed on an artistic level. The intent of this transition means that it is an excellent time to experiment with different types of art, theatre, dance, hobbies and other recreational activities. Discovering undeveloped and unrealized potentials is a major part of this seven year time span. Whatever happens during this period, it leads to the heart being newly awakened. So we might begin an exciting love affair which takes us on a quest for our unexplored self, and it makes us feel like a teenager again. We could start a new artistic project that awakens a bunch of unfulfilled possibilities. Or we could even find ourselves suddenly pregnant and be genuinely shocked by our predicament.
Can be lovers and/or unexpected pregnancies. One married student of mine who was using birth control had two children anyway during this seven-year transit. She could hardly believe it. Children are permanent but lovers may not be. It’s something to keep in mind. This transit can also bring vacations completely different than anything you ever did before or are likely to do again. You may take up new hobbies and new sports. Try not to spend too much money on it all because once the transit is over, you may have a garage full of unwanted equipment. The Plain Vanilla Astrologer
As Uranus transits through the 5th house of self-expression we will project a new and exciting magnetism, but this energy can also attract some unusual people in our lives. For teenagers, it could be the time they explore dating and parties and social life. And while freedom is fun, they need to be careful that they’re not being overly rebellious, just for the sake of it. If we have children ourselves then we might have to watch their behavior during this time, as they may start demanding more space and acting rebellious. If we are a parent and have been too hard with the rules, it could be time to allow a child some room for self-expression and let them explore what they would like to do. We could even try and bring some excitement into the lives of our children. However, with older children there is often a need for them to explore their self-identities and so we may be separated from them for a while.
