Uranus in the Solar Return 1st House
Uranus in the 1st house of the solar return is usually indicative of strong and dramatic transitions. It is very likely that you will consider making a major change in your lifestyle, location, or even appearance during the coming year. The transformations that arise from the restlessness associated with the 1st house Uranus can be far-reaching and affect many other areas of life. If you are aware of your own restlessness, you can not only welcome the coming changes, but initiate them yourself. This is meant to be an exciting time, though somewhat nerve-wracking. Generally, major changes are the norm, but occasionally minor changes suffice. Major changes include, but are not limited to, relocations across country or at least across state lines, lifestyle changes (divorce, living alone or out on your own, communal arrangements or living together, stopping work, starting work, or returning to school), and individual changes associated with personality characteristics or appearance (increased assertiveness, greater demands for independence, and a noticeable weight loss or gain).
You can expect a change of pace if your current lifestyle no longer meets your needs and you feel bored, restricted, or restless. It’s time for a fresh start, and it is to your advantage to take risks and make the necessary changes. Assess the solar return position of Saturn in relationship to Uranus for an understanding of the kind of risk you are willing to take, and what realistic criteria must be met for you to make changes easily. If Saturn is prominent in the solar return chart, you are more apt to take calculated risks, planning your moves carefully rather than jumping into situations quickly. This should be reassuring to those individuals who find it more threatening to deal with Uranian impulses.
Most changes center around your need and ability to act independently. There is a strong desire for freedom of action, and you perform not as a corporate player, but as a free agent. The activities you are involved in may require you to function separately, without the assistance or agreement of significant others. Some individuals seek or finalize a divorce during the year and sever existing ties completely. Others form new, exciting, or unconventional relationships. Although you may be relationship-oriented, you may not necessarily be partnership-oriented. If other factors in the chart so indicate, an extramarital affair is possible, but this is certainly not the norm. The predominant need is to take action on your own and for your own sake. In at least one area of your life, you must make your own decisions and function as a separate unit. Nearly everyone can do this while still maintaining existing partnerships, but it is important that those you are involved with give you enough freedom to grow and change. Now is the time to get in touch with your own unique individuality, and to do this, you may have to act differently from others or differently from the way you have acted in the past, breaking old patterns of behavior. Realize that you will probably not adhere to your old standard of behavior. Those who are particularly Uranian may not adhere to social norms either. Personality experimentation is possible and can help get you moving.
Your behavior may get erratic or downright disruptive. If others around you are not adequately prepared for the changes you are making, they will see you as undependable, unpredictable, or even out of control. Understand that others may see this whole process as lacking stability. Your concentration can be easily interrupted, and you may find it difficult to work consistently on a project, preferring to work during strong bursts of energy. Uranus does not represent a steady pattern of energy use, but an erratic pulse that moves in fits and starts toward growth and change. Move when the restless energy is there and rest when it is not. Work with the internal process and do not get trapped into a rigid schedule. Activities will not be well-planned since spontaneity seems to be the norm and plans you do formulate tend to get changed.
If you are really rut-bound and fear making any changes at all, the people around you will make the changes for you. Your life can become disrupted by others, especially if you are trying to remain the same while buffeted by the winds of change. Surprises and unexpected upheavals will be the norm as life gets unpredictable. This is a time for a flexible schedule. Own your own restlessness and welcome positive changes.
