Uranus is the planet associated with liberation, change and freedom. Also known as “The Great Awakener” when Uranus transits a personal planet it changes its expression. I like to think of Uranus as the woke planet. A Uranus transit will revolutionize the planet it touches delivering many ah-ha moments. If you have been in a relationship for a long period or even a short period of time (See Michelle Williams) and it just hasn’t been working and Uranus makes a visit via square, conjunction or opposition to your natal Venus or natal 7th house you will have a strong urge to break free. This isn’t to say every Uranus/Venus transit ends in divorce; sometimes it results in an affair, an open marriage, a break or staying together but living apart. Uranus can be very unpredictable so expect the unexpected. One thing is for certain it will rearrange things in such a way that you cannot go back to what was before. The best way to work with Uranus is to allow things to unfold naturally and learn to go with the flow. It can be very difficult for the more willful and ridged types, particularly those that associate change with pain. The only time change is painful is when we hold on to old paradigms that no longer serve us. Let it go and let it flow, control after all is only an illusion of the ego.
Some divorces brought on by Uranus
Mackenzie Bezos Uranus currently conjoining her Venus
Wendy Williams Husband Kevin Hunter; Uranus squaring his Venus by 9 degrees a little bit of a wide orb for my taste, I originally predicted them divorcing in 2020 when Uranus will exactly square his Venus but some astrologers do use very wide orbs.
When Jennifer Anniston split from her 2nd husband Uranus in Aries was sitting right on her 7th house cusp, the house of marriage.
Geena Davis filed for Divorce when Uranus entered her 7th house as well.
Jill Scott filed for divorce when Uranus squared her house 7th of marriage.
Actress Michelle Williams filed for divorce; Uranus is currently square her natal Venus
Those with planets in Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius are currently undergoing changes brought on by Uranus entering Taurus where it will remain for the next 7 years.

If you have heavy Uranus or Aquarius placements in your natal chart and/or do not fear change this energy may be quite familiar and comfortable for you. It is always necessary to take the entire chart into consideration.
