Uranus cycle occurs every 84 years

The Principal of the Awakening

The principle of awakening is related to Uranus because it can shake us to the core with unexpected events, breakdown of structures, the desire to break free of restrictions and do things differently.  Uranus energy is humanitarian, inventive, and intuitive.

It can be self willed and refuse to be influenced by outside forces. Uranus is the revolutionary spirit in all of us. It is also associated with sudden unexpected upheavals in life. Whether they are liberating or frightening will rest with other factors in the horoscope. Transits of Uranus will be like having an burst of adrenaline; you go faster, may be hyped up and be full of nervous tension. Although, this may be needed to jolt you out of your complacency and bring about change yet it can be quite unnerving.

The Uranus cycle is approximately every 84 years and the half cycle is most strongly felt  around 42-44 years of age.  It ushers in the mid-life crisis. There is a realisation that you are no longer young and you start thinking about your mortality and  what you have so far achieved in your life. This is likely to be the first exposure to the mid life crisis  and if you are not happy with your lot in life you will now feel compelled to change. The degree to which you feel unsettled and compelled to make change depends on how true to yourself you have been. In other words, if you have led a life of responsibility and duty and felt shackled by this, you may feel forced toss it all away and do something entirely different. Alternatively, if you have be true to yourself this can be a very exciting time delivering new opportunities and new found freedoms!
