Now we’ve all heard of the term ‘midlife crisis’ – but known as ‘Uranus opposition’ in the study of the stars this period of life is said to be a time to reflect on the past so that the future can be exactly what you want it to be.

If you’re looking to the stars for guidance, you’ve come to the right place.

According to Syd Robinson, author of the forthcoming astrology-focused book Who Do the Stars Say You Are?, “in astrology, Uranus represents life’s ‘element of surprise.”

He added: “It often shocks our system with unforeseen events and opportunities and, in turn, brings about new, exciting changes in our lives.”

What does Uranus in opposition mean?

Uranus in opposition is thought to be an intense period, but it can actually be an enriching time that pushes the boundaries of who you are and helps you find fulfilment. 

According to Robinson: “[The Uranus opposition] makes you keenly aware of what goals you have not yet accomplished in your life and may lead to feelings of inadequacy as you question your own potential.”

He explained: “While this period of self-reflection can be difficult, it can also lead to new personal discoveries in self-worth and purpose, as well as some revelatory changes in perspective.”

Robinson claimed that a person’s Uranus opposition almost always happens in the same time span: between the ages of 40 and 42, and lasting one to two years.

What is the spiritual meaning of Uranus’ opposition?

The spiritual meaning of the Uranus opposition is that you will come to terms with your perception of life and its true meaning. 

You will realise that the outside world is not as important as it was in the past and accomplishments will have to mean something to you on the inside. 

During this time, you will no longer live for approval and applause from the outside world but rather seek spiritual fulfilment. 

If you don’t work toward spiritual fulfilment in the years following the mid-life crisis, life may grow empty and meaningless, but if you choose to work from your spiritual side, you will find the mid-life crisis to be a true blessing.
