If the conjunction is in your 7th house, you often find yourself wanting close relationships and running away at the same time. Even in a supportive, healthy relationship, you need a lot of space.

The Moon in Astrology
The Moon is a key celestial body in astrology, perhaps it’s not an exaggeration to say that in a birth chart, the Moon is the most important. It is the celestial object closest to the Earth. In astrology, the Moon rules Cancer and it is exalted in Taurus. Your moon sign is one of the most important things in the birth chart. The phase of the Moon you were born under is also used in astrology.
The Moon shows your emotional nature, habits, mood, needs, how you cope with challenges, how you nurture yourself (and others). In astrology, emotions, intuition, reactions are also associated with this luminary. The Moon’s energy is very feminine. It rules women, motherhood, and children (infants in particular) in astrology. The Moon also rules home and family.
Uranus is the ruling planet of Aquarius in the Zodiac.
This outer planet’s movement through the Zodiac is rather sluggish: its orbital period is 84 years. It spends approximately 7 years in each zodiac sign. In transit, Uranus is a very important planet, but in the birth chart, it expresses itself through its aspects rather than through the sign. Uranus represents the march of progress for humanity rather than for individuals.
Uranus has a disruptive effect. It introduces unpredictability that sometimes triggers collapse. It’s non-standard. When out of control, this energy can cause great harm, but when used for the right purposes, Uranus represents the divine spark, brilliance, technological and societal advancement, global issues. Uranus rules anomalies, innovation and revolution.
