The more original a human being is, the deeper is his anxiety.
– Søren Kierkegaard
Natal Sun Conjunct Square Opposition Uranus
DRIVE TOWARD FREEDOM
Uranus represents qualities such as independence, freedom and out-of-the-box thinking. It’s the planet associated with outliers, geniuses and revolutionaries.
Sun represents your core energy and life purpose. Just like how a plant grows toward Sun’s light, you tend to grow in the direction suggested by your natal Sun’s placement.
With natal Sun conjunct, square or opposite Uranus, the pathway of your growth points toward individuation. It means you won’t be satisfied until you truly tasted the freedom to be yourself.
NATAL SUN URANUS ASPECT: YOUR RESOURCE
Intensity. Drive. Ingenuity.
With Uranus guiding your life direction, you tend to have a lot of energy – both physically and mentally – toward self expression and ego development.
While others may be bound by traditional cultural expectations thrust upon them by their family and friends, you are somehow freer to pursue your own path. It could be said that you have nothing holding you back from doing what interests you, which can be exciting and scary at the same time.
THE FLIP SIDE OF FREEDOM IS…
Anxiety. While others may complain about boredom of predictive routines, they at least have the security of “doing what they’re supposed to be doing” with their life.
You, on the other hand, somehow do not or cannot walk on the same path as everyone. Maybe you chose to step off the rail, or something forced you to. You may feel as if there is no guidebook to where you are going – and you’re probably right.
THE CURES FOR ANXIETY ARE…
Focus and independent direction. With so much energy vibrating within your system, you need to be able to direct your energy toward goals and activities that excite you, without being held back by worries over what others will think of you.
Failing to do so might mean a lot of nervous energy, expressed as erratic behaviors that disrupt (rather than energize) others.
Once you find your passionate interest and give yourself permission to pursue it, there is much potential for brilliance…Even genius.
Well Known Examples of Sun-Uranus Aspect
Here are some well known examples of Uranus-Sun people that followed their own paths:
- Walt Disney (Film Producer & Entrepreneur) had Sun conjunct Uranus.
- Rene Descartes (Philosopher & Scientist) had Sun conjunct Uranus.
- Bill Gates (Entrepreneur & Philanthropist) has Sun square Uranus.

Each person above is highly individuated with an extremely strong sense of self.
Transit Uranus Conjunct Square Opposite Sun
A CALL TO BE FREE
When transiting Uranus forms a conjunction, square or opposition with your natal Sun, it can be a call for further individuation. The drive to be free is strong at this time.
RULEBREAKING AND SEPARATION
During Uranus-Sun transit the temptation to break rules might be strong, so some degree of wisdom is necessary to decide which “rules” can be broken without loss of personal integrity or illegality.
Uranus aspect is often associated with separation, which is the flip side of freedom. As you contemplate possible separation from existing relationships, a strong anxiety may emerge.
DO I HAVE TO SEPARATE IN ORDER TO BE FREE?
Not necessarily – if your current relationships (including marriage, partnership, work, etc) allow you enough room to grow and develop, then there is no need for the connection to end – again, some degree of wisdom is needed to discern when a separation is truly called for.
Uranus transit to Sun is more about claiming the freedom to choose your own path, to be yourself at last. Good friends will support you in that.
Do you have a natal or transit Sun Uranus Aspect?
