Uranus is the planet of change in astrology, and is independent, unconventional, and forward-thinking. When impacting your home and family life, this energy is brought to matters of the home and family.
How Natal Uranus Impacts Your Home & Family Life
For some, Uranus can have a strong influence on your home and family life via your natal chart. This can be the case if you have:
- Uranus in the 4th house (ruling the home and family; note that family can mean actual relations as well as those you think of as family)
- Aquarius 4th house/Imum Coeli (so Uranus rules the 4th house) or 4th house ruler
- Uranus conjunct (aligned with) the natal Moon (planetary ruler of the home & family) or the 4h house ruler
- Uranus conjunct the 10th house cusp/Midheaven (the 10th house cusp/Midheaven is on an axis with the 4th house cusp/Imum Coeli so Uranus would be directly opposing)
When natal Uranus has a strong influence on your home and family life in your natal chart, you can be someone who experiences massive Uranus energy with the home and family. This often means that the very definitions of "home" and "family" are different for you, at least different from what you consider to be the norm and conventional.
In your younger years, you likely experienced a lot of changes in your home and family life. This may have involved moving quite a bit, living with different people, or having general changes all the time with your family (marriages and divorces and deaths and births and all that).
Or, you may have had a general home and family life that was different in some way. Like, say you're from a place that is ultra religious but your parents were atheists; say your family grew food in the middle of a city; say you were surrounded by ambitious career types but your own parents were hippies; and on and on.
This can continue into your adulthood, and you can maintain things being different from the norm, and may even embrace it more. It can help you feel like an individual, which can be important for you to feel comfortable with yourself. Denying your eccentricities and quirks only serves to make you feel more disconnected and lack a true connection to yourself.
If your home and family life was chaotic or stifling, you may go in the opposite direction as an adult. It becomes important for you to figure out what works for you, and you may need to branch out completely away from how you grew up. For some, this may mean detaching from the place (and moving far away) or detaching from the people (low and no contact).
No matter what, what you view as "typical" just usually doesn't work for you at home or with the family you create. You need some unconventional. You need some weird!
How Transit Uranus Impacts Your Home & Family Life
Transit (moving) Uranus can also bring strong Uranus energy to your home and family life, but this is temporary (whereas with natal Uranus, it's your entire life). With transit Uranus, it's only going to be for the period of time the transit is in effect, but with Uranus ruling change and the sudden and unexpected, it can pack a punch.
Transit Uranus can influence your home and family life when it's:
- in your natal 4th house
- aspecting your natal 4th house cusp/Imum Coeli, natal 4th house ruler, or natal Moon
Transit Uranus touring your natal 4th house can be similar to natal Uranus in the 4th house, and lasts for usually 6-8 years. It can bring big changes to home and family matters, and this may feel out of left field at times. I find that when transit Mars is also in the 4th house with transit Uranus, this can often show a sudden move (so you can move quite a bit!). Things just don't stay the same at all with transit Uranus in the 4th house, and this can be chaotic if you fight it. If you go with it, it can open up new connections for you at home and with your found family.
Transit Uranus in the 4th house can also help with getting to your core, and you may do so in unusual, unconventional ways. This may lead to revelations and sudden insights into the past, into home and family matters, and into emotional issues.
When it comes to transit Uranus aspects, these last for several months, often over a couple of years. Beneficial aspects (sextiles and trines) can help you create changes at home or with family that can be of benefit to you, and you can shake things up and bring some excitement into the mix.
Challenging aspects (conjunctions, squares, and oppositions) can be more difficult as this can be chaotic energy and brings changes that feel out of your control or that you don't expect. You may resist, stubbornly try to fight them, but this usually makes it worse. You have to learn to be more flexible and adjust on the fly.

Will Uranus in Taurus Impact My Home & Family Life?
Uranus is currently in Taurus, about halfway through this transit, so many have already been impacted by Uranus in Taurus when it comes to your home and family life. This can include you if you have:
- natal 4th house/Imum Coeli in Taurus (Uranus will transit)
- natal 4th house ruler or natal Moon in Taurus (Uranus will conjunct)
- natal 4th house cusp/Imum Coeli or natal 4th house ruler or natal Moon in Leo, Scorpio, or Aquarius (Uranus will square or oppose)
These are the challenging positions for Uranus in Taurus, so if you're currently experiencing this or have yet to, you may need to work on seeing where you can create changes at home or with family and get started on them quickly. This can help you take control of some of the change energy so it doesn't control you as much. And, try to be more flexible at the same time.
If any of these positions are instead in Cancer, Virgo, Capricorn, or Pisces, Uranus in Taurus will make beneficial aspects, and you can get helpful energy for beneficial changes at home and with family.
