Also, transits of Uranus which make contacts to your natal planets and houses can point to the moments in life when significant events and transformational changes will take place, and should always be taken into consideration when examining Uranus’s influence.
Its influence on generations of people is often through different discoveries which benefit the humankind, innovations, changes in perception, change of styles, etc. Most people don’t sense its influence while transiting through signs on a personal level because the planet itself isn’t making any aspects to their natal charts.
These transits often bring unwanted and sudden events in a person’s life, which cause massive transformational changes they benefit from in the future.
People who have a prominently positioned Uranus in their natal charts are more sensitive to its influence, progressions, and transits when it makes aspects to their natal planets and houses.
