Uranus in Your Astrology Chart

Uranus, the planet of revolution and sudden, often drastic change, often causes havoc in people’s lives when in transit. It is the ruler of Aquarius, the water bearer, and is commonly known as the awakener. Its influence functions as a huge factor in making necessary changes in your life. Uranus makes changes in areas of life that have outgrown their usefulness and require alteration and liberation from anything that could be considered useless tradition or restrictive in nature. It creates a desire for the new and unique, and it often produces this in unexpected and unconventional ways.

Uranus moves through each sign in approximately 7 years and takes a full 84 years to circle the zodiac. During its movement, it creates quick results and a feeling of liberation and freedom from restriction. It governs universal brotherhood and is humanitarian in its nature. Uranus will force you to have an honest look at life’s issues and then make necessary changes. If you choose not to adhere to what is being proposed, it often acts in a much more abrupt manner and in ways that are often out of your control.

Uranus is rebellious in its nature and pushes one into independent thinking with a flair for the unconventional and unique. Uranus also has been known to produce shocking awakening when ones eyes have been closed to what is required. It governs universal truths and intuition and anyone with strong Uranus tendencies has a unique way of translating these truths, quite often in an abrupt matter-of-fact fashion.

Uranus’ action is unpredictable, imaginative and also very inspirational. It is the higher octave of Mercury and therefore is considered a planet linked to the mental process. It deals with potential outcomes and is “future” oriented. Uranus pushes one to come out into the open and express their uniqueness and creativity as well as advanced mental quickness and agility, similar to Mercury, although the thinking process may be considered bohemian in its nature.

It rules electricity and anything electronic, such as computers and technology and its newest innovations. Uranus is anything but conventional. Where Uranus is located in your chart will be where you choose to reveal your originality and uniqueness. If for example you have Uranus closely linked to the Ascendant in the first house, your originality will shine through for all to see.

Someone with strong Uranus influence would be considered a bit of an eccentric and they would not be ashamed of this flair as it makes them stand apart from the crowd. Uranus will push you to be different and to be proud of it too.
