Hi - was wondering if anyone has experienced Uranus transiting their descendant, entering their 7th house and what their experience was like.

Hi, I am newLY registered here but have been reading the forum for a long while now and couldn't resist answering your post....hello everyone :).
When Uranus went over my descendant and through my 7th house it was a really positive turning point in my life. I have sun conjunct uranus natally (trine jupiter in the 7th house) and Uranus moving over my descendant began the process of me 'owning' my individuality, it started with meeting a very uranian partner who mirrored a lot of traits that I now own myself, through my interaction with him.
It blew away my 'saturnian' upbringing and showed me a way to a more free and individualistic lifesyle. I also changed my appearance during this transit (probably to do with the opposition to my ascendant) going from 'conventional' dress to a bit more (well actually a lot more!) 'alternative' dress.
I credit this transit with being the one that gave me freedom and set me on the search for self expression and enlightenment! So for me it was a positive experience.
Where is your uranus natally and what aspects does it make?

Thank you for your response. That is very interesting and encouraging.
Natally, Uranus is in my 1st House, along with Jupiter, Mars and Pluto. Not sure how the transiting Uranus opposing all those planets in the 1st will shake out, but was curious what kind of impact a transiting Uranus to the 7th brings. Destruction or construction . . . or merely change.
Thanks again for sharing your experience with it.

Hi again :)
I think that Uranus crossing the threshhold from the bottom half of the chart which is more inner-directed to the top more outwardly focused half, would perhaps give you the chance to show your individuality or whatever uranus represents for you (astrology maybe?) externally, plus perhaps bring some interesting 'uranian' people into your life!
I have found with transits that they also tend to 'activate ' the area and issues that the planet has/is natally. If you usually feel comfortable with your uranus you should be in for an exciting time.
Nice speaking to you.

Welcome aboard, Jaina, and cool first post! ;)
My favorite keyword for Uranus is "Redefinition" - Uranus is all about change, and redefinition seems to expand the concept a little. Our old perceptions and understanding of things are blown out of the water, especially if they limit us in any form or fashion. The method and concept of the redefinition, under the lightning of Uranus, relates to seeing both sides of whatever we are redefining, and integrating the opposing (yet similar) principles into a newly formed whole. It can be a bit of a wild ride with Uranus, but seldom as difficult as the dissolution and delusion of a Neptune transit or the sheer raw power and covert subversion of a Pluto transit. However, "expect the unexpected" is the main thing to keep in mind when Uranus transits a planet of angle; You might run into some very electrifying and shocking people with the Uranus/DSC transit, but as Jaina nicely demonstrated, these people are going to change you and help you get closer to your authentic self.
... The level of difficulty will be exactly proportional to your level of resistance, and as an air planet Uranus works on the mental plane, so keep an open mind and look for the archetypal significance of the people you make contact with during Uranus rolling through your 7th house.
Also realize the 3rd, 7th, and 11th houses are air houses, and Uranus transits through these houses are often more notable than the other house as Uranus has a more direct connection to our mental plane which allows him more freedom to influence our minds, which is his playground! Uranus hit my 3rd house a few years back after hitting my late second-house Moon and his influence has been quite powerful ever since.
Schulman interprets the glyph as two Crescents of Soul interconnected via a Cross of Matter. He likens the crescents facing in opposite directions from each other to different phases of the waxing and waning Moon, presenting two different perspectives on life, but both of them necessary parts of the whole, and both exposed by Uranus, highlighting its unusual insights. The conventional Cross of Matter is tugged at by the two Crescents of Soul in new, hitherto unmapped directions, as the Soul wishes to discover and experience what is not yet known, risking stability in the quest for possibility and for liberation from Matter.

Hi unukalhai and thanks for the welcome :).
I like the idea of redefinition and definitely agree with 'The level of difficulty will be exactly proportional to your level of resistance'. I tend to find Uranus exciting, well my Sun conjunct Uranus trine Jupiter does! (my 12th house Taurus moon isn't always in agreement with that statement! ). Which is why I said that how we handle outer planet transits has a lot to do with our natal relationships with the planet, I enjoy Uranus and find it liberating and energising and it is usually the only thing that propels me from one major phase of life to another . On the other hand I find Saturn transits much much more difficult! well I used to before I began to work with and understand what Saturn wants. Anyway, nice speaking to you :)

Very much so :) It's amazing how our natal map so clearly indicates how sensitive, and how troubling or ecstatic, a transit will be.
I can see how that lunar placement could conflict, but at the same time the Sun/Jupiter/Uranus setup should provide a nice balance, preventing your lunar nature from getting too stubborn in Taurus or hidden in the 12th -- Or that hyperactive Sun/Jupiter/Uranus combo from drifting away with no grounding. Gotta have some balance in the chart ;)
Don't be shy to post, I think I speak for most people here when I say we enjoy unique and different viewpoints.. Keeps us thinkin ;) Cheers! :D

Thanks for encouraging me to post more stuff, I have usually been more of a watcher than a participater online but am enjoying the interactions that 'joining in' brings. :)
