Sun trine Uranus will occur on December 12th, 2016 at 06:56:07 UT (01:56:07 EST).
Sun trine Uranus ’makes’ the person intuitive, original, inventive and independent in his manner of conduct and personal appearance, with very high-strung – but generally well-controlled – temperament, rarely showing temper or anger. He/she is what people call ’eccentric’ (having sometimes certain mannerisms), often conspicuous, yet not offensively so; given to pursuits and studies with an attitude which people may consider ’fanatic’, delving by all means into the unknown after nature’s secrets concerning arts, occultism, astrology, electricity or inventions.
For a while, Uranus leapt into tropical Aries on May 28th, 2010, but it only stayed there until August 14th. The ’real’ shift of Uranus into tropical Aries occurred on March 12th, 2011 and it will stay there until May 15th, 2018. (After that, thanks to its retrograde motion, will move back again into Aries for some time – will stay there between November 7th, 2018 and March 3rd, 2019 – following that, Uranus will leave this tropical sign and won’t return until April 28th, 2094.
As the natives with (a not strongly afflicted) Sagittarius Sun are mostly of wide intellectual horizon, what is more, of some kind of ’missionary zeal’ also, with the harmonic co-operation of the penetrating/pulsating power and unrelenting intensity of Aries Uranus, they often become successful, highly gifted – but sufficiently prudent – inventors / reformers in science, technics or art.
Famous people with natal /Sun in Sagittarius/ trine /Uranus in Aries/:
- Eli Whitney (1765 – 1825), American inventor, best known for inventing the cotton gin. This was one of the key inventions of the Industrial Revolution and shaped the economy of the Ante-bellum South. Whitney’s invention made upland short cotton into a profitable crop. He was one of the invertors of the milling machine and engineered several guns also.
- Karl Friedrich Benz (1844 – 1929), German engine designer and automobile engineer. His ‘Benz Patent Motorcar’ from 1885 is considered the first practical motorcar. During the last years of the nineteenth century, the ’Benz’ was the largest automobile company in the world with 572 units of production in 1899.
- Jean-Luc Godard (1930 –), French-Swiss film director. He is often considered the most radical French filmmaker of the 1960s and 1970s; his approach in film conventions, politics and philosophies made him arguably the most influential director of the French ’New Wave’ (’Nouvelle Vague’). Along with showing knowledge of film history through homages and references, several of his films expressed his political views based on existential philosophy. His aphorisms below are clear examples of a characteristic Uranus-influenced mind: ’Photography is truth. The cinema is truth twenty-four times per second.’ ’Cinema is the most beautiful fraud in the world.’ ’A story should have a beginning, a middle and an end, but not necessarily in that order.’ >> More Astro Info
