Astrologically, Uranus is changeable in nature and a transit through the fixed address of this house may rip apart our sense of emotional security. Sudden deaths, new births, and material changes could occur. Relationship disruptions and divorce are also common at this time. During this 7-year transit, we are developing our potential by approaching intimate relationships on a different level. The cycles of birth, death, loss and survival are things that we are more aware of throughout this process. Emotional blow-ups can shatter our sense of safety and survival. And as Uranus rules accidental discoveries, something unearthed threatens the relationship. Perhaps we see clearly what has really been going on.
