When the Sun in one chart forms an aspect to another person’s Uranus.
Sun conjunct Uranus in synastry:
Yours is a relationship that side-steps tradition in some ways. This aspect offers quite a bit of inspiration to the mix, and a bit of uncertainty as well. You may have come together when either or both of you were looking for something a little “different”, or when you were ready to try new things and investigate alternative ways of relating. You may have met each other, for example, during a time period when either of you were looking for a new way of relating, giving up something or attitudes towards relating from your past, or rebelling. If this is the case, this relationship will certainly possess an air of excitement or uniqueness for this time in your life. If you weren’t looking for a relationship that fairly screams “alternative”, you will nevertheless discover that the energy between you necessitates some level of instability and a distinct level of surprise in your relationship. You can embrace the spontaneity in your relationship, or you can be thrown off by an unsettled feeling between you–and often it can be a little of both! Unusual twists and turns will always be part of this relationship. While there is certainly a high level of excitement between you, the Sun person in this equation can eventually feel the need for more commitment, stability, or constancy in the relationship. The Sun person might also feel that Uranus is too impersonal or noncommittal, and might even consider the Uranus person as an unsettling bringer of change and instability into his/her life. The Uranus person has come into the Sun’s life to challenge him or her to accept a nontraditional or unconventional style of relating. Similarly, the Sun person triggers the Uranus person’s need to explore his/her individuality. Many, many ups and downs are likely in store. In some cases, the circumstances surrounding the partnership are such that you are separated at key moments (long-distance and other non-traditional relationships), which can undermine the relationship over time.
Sun opposition Uranus in synastry:
There is a lot of excitement in this relationship that can be very exciting at first but also challenging, as it is hard to keep stable and predictable. It might seem that whenever the Sun person needs the Uranus person or puts any kind of pressure or demands on Uranus, that Uranus rebels, disappears, or reacts in an inconsiderate manner. On the flip side, your partnership doesn’t get into the kinds of ruts or emotional stagnation that characterize many relationships. Much will depend on your individual personalities and how open you are to a level of instability in a partnership. In some cases, the circumstances surrounding the partnership are such that you are separated at key moments (long-distance and other non-traditional relationships), which can undermine the relationship over time.
Sun square Uranus in synastry:
There is nothing predictable–or stable–about your interactions. Your relationship likely began in a sudden or surprising manner, but it might also end just as suddenly. You have come together to explore new and perhaps unconventional ways of relating–not for a predictable, stable, and traditional partnership. Uranus is a bringer of change into the Sun person’s life, and challenges the Sun person to accept his/her desire for freedom and individuality. The Sun person may find the Uranus person extremely attractive and exciting, but might eventually grow tired of the seemingly constant upsets, rebellious moments, and impersonal attitude. In some cases, the circumstances surrounding the partnership are such that you are separated at key moments (long-distance and other non-traditional relationships), which can undermine the relationship over time.
Sun sextile or trine Uranus in synastry:
Things work best for your relationship when you encourage one another’s independence. There is an electric, spontaneous quality between you, and your sexual relationship is lively, uninhibited, and exciting as well. Sun finds Uranus very inspiring and exciting, but rarely in an upsetting way. There is an intriguing level of freedom in your relationship that is rare–you tend to encourage each other to “be yourself” and to have hobbies or interests that allow you to grow. The Uranus person is very sensitive to the need for stimulation, and might consciously or unconsciously bring little surprises or new ideas for keeping the relationship interesting into the partnership. This is not a suffocating relationship, and there are frequent changes and new discoveries that keep you on your toes and feeling like you are moving forward.
General notes about Sun-Uranus connections in synastry:
There is a suddenness to both the beginning and the end of relationships with strong, hard interaspects between the Sun and Uranus. I have found these aspects frequently in the synastry between individuals involved in non-traditional partnerships, including long-distance and extra-marital affairs. In these cases, the intermittent separations from each other can undermine the relationship. In more traditional set-ups, the Sun person may feel that the Uranus person is “on” one day and “off” the next. The Sun person can easily become miffed when the Uranus person seems to be ignoring him or her. Note that since the Sun rules Leo and Uranus rules Aquarius, there is a natural polarity here. The Sun person can easily feel off-center with the Uranus person in the long-term. The Uranus person can most definitely expand the Sun person’s horizons, but the Sun person may become frustrated in the face of the Uranus person’s somewhat impersonal treatment of him/her.
