Uranus Transits: 7th House

010d56fedeb851485f1fd130e7ac9cc0When Uranus transit’s the 7th house there can be dramatic changes in the area of relationships and sudden making and breaking of partnerships. During this transit, a marriage can go through some unsettling changes and divorce could be sought. Sometimes the changes are exciting and liberating and it happens quickly and unexpectedly. Some people experience love at first sight and get hitched and everything is thrown up into the whirlwind of change. 1

Uranus transits usually indicate restlessness and the need for freedom and space. A long-term marriage may experience a bout of frustration and will probably need to be taken to a new level to avoid it becoming stale. A breakthrough in a relationship is another possibility and normal patterns of relating are about to change. Often the people we attract are different and we learn how to relate differently. 2

Uranus is the planet of change; whatever it transits in your chart gets thoroughly shaken up. generally, the changes you experience are unexpected, sudden and powerful. It’s almost impossible to predict exactly what the outcome will be – all that can be said with certainty is that things won’t be the same afterward. When Uranus travels through a house is creates a disruption, excitement and awakenings in areas related to that house…Uranus in the seventh house can bring an abrupt end to a marriage or prompt a sudden unconventional relationship. By Sky Alexander – Magickal Astrology: Understanding Your Place in the Cosmos

If we are staying together for the children’s sake or because of financial reasons like a mortgage, then the transit is likely to be far more challenging. We might find that one of us in the relationship is rebelling against the confines of societal expectations. A normal steady relationship could be hard to maintain during this period. It could represent a time of plenty of change and flux in a steady relationship and routines may be constantly shifting. A partner may begin to behave differently and, therefore, shatter the security element in the relationship.
It would be pointless worry about acceptable definitions of a partnership during this transit and try to learn how to be more flexible and progressive.

The ability to cope with constant flux in the relationship during this seven-year stretch of Uranus is often needed. Whatever the scenario a certain amount of detachment and objectivity is helpful, and this doesn’t mean cold detachment, but a free-spirited attitude to social interactions.[pullquote align=”right” cite=”” link=”” color=”” class=”” size=””] In all relationships, personal and public, expect the unexpected!

It can be an exciting time in the area of one-to-one relating. We often need to refresh our view in a committed partnership and even challenge ourselves to see our mate like it’s the very first time. A renewed perspective is usually taken on and there are surprises, and if not in a committed relationship–there’s a need for freedom or an unconventional arrangement.

Uranus in some shape, or form is usually involved with divorce. Pluto breaks down and rebuilds, and Neptune dissolves, but it’s Uranus or Aquarius that breaks out, breaks free, and wants to do its own thing. It doesn’t want to be encumbered. Rarely will anyone ever get divorced without heavy duty Uranus activation, and that will show in the natal chart as well as in progressions and transits for that time. Also, divorce has got to show somehow in the seventh house, or be tied to the seventh house or to the seventh house ruler. By Carol Rushman – The Art of Predictive Astrology

  1. I’ve been in a partnership for over 10 years with this same transit and so it does not necessarily mean relations are destined to break. Therefore, a Uranus transit in the 7th house doesn’t always mean a relationship is divorce-prone or uncooperative at this time.
  2. I joined an astrology group for the first time during this transit and so it can include the people we in public areas.
