Without a telescope, Uranus could not be seen, and so we knew about its existence until 1781. Uranus therefore belongs to the modern astrological system. This planet is fittingly linked to the invisible aspects of the life, like Neptune and Pluto. The domain of Uranus is like that of the future Aquarius, a marker governing scientific inventions, power, innovation and technology.
All these things require us to extend our vision beyond our own and to lean towards faith. For instance, we could not prove the Uranian, but we feel a certainty of its existence. If you consider it, even the Internet, which is the domain of Uranus, is a type of virtual reality.
Uranus is known by mythology as Father Sky, the child who bore Gaia, also known as Mother Earth. This is the world that regulates the outdoors and aircraft and shows, without restrictions, where we want to fly! (Seriousness…what is it?!) It is not surprising, given the liberated vibes that the Uranus of love did not naturally come from parenthood.
Legend has it that Father Sky cruelly buried some of his kids and banned others on the earth. Out of vengeance, Saturn, one of his sons, castrates Uranus. It also shows where you want to relinquish responsibility and remain forever youthful and unthered in your natal chart.
In each sign, it spends about seven years and has a role in shaping the idea. Someone born with Uranus in marriage-minded Libra may struggle with matrimonial duties. Interestingly, when Uranus visited Libra between 1969 and 1975 the divorce rates began to rise.
People who were born with Uranus in a mysterious Scorpio are sexually liberated, rebel against puritanical values and may be linked to the erotic act by “no string” means. The coolest planet of the solar system is Uranus, the icy gas giant. Astrologically, it can have a similarly chilling and uncompromising effect, preferring rational thinking over raw emotions—yes, it rules when it comes to all metaphysic subjects: astrology, yoga and kundalini.
In order for Uranus to be concerned, science can rule over spirit; or be included in its systems at the least. Think of Astrology—a mystical but also data- and mathematical topic! Even if nobody is able to clarify what this star-driven divination tool works. Kundalini yoga and tantra are exemples of the high-minded sexuality of Uranus who teach us how to exchange more soulful sensual energy with our bodies.
The placement in the natal chart of this “loving scholar” planet shows where we are likely to be excentric and groundbreaking. A weirdo in its cohort of the solar system, Uranus rotates retrogradely on its axis. It shows where we are going to fly the freak and insist that we do things our own way.
Radical developments happen when Uranus is in town, for better or for worse. While Uranus was in Aries, Hitler and ISIS came to power as the dominant warrior’s sign. Scary things! Scary things! As the smartphones became the all-round device in its home sign of a tech-savvy aquarium, and the Internet speeds became exponential, so we can connect to our fellow people via physical equipment.
As smartphones became an omnipresent device and Internet speeds exponential faster in its home sign for tech-savvy aquariuses, we can connect to our friends across physical barriers, but in real-time. This communal planet also controls the collective consciousness so that its transits can influence the global mentality.
Uranus, the planet of platonic love, has a bohemian appearance. Uranus can at best help us to sense this sense of universal connection. It can awaken the humanitarian spirit and remind us of the way we can thrive collectively by shared resources.
Festivals such as Burning Man, which follow a “schenk economy,” as well as modern collective systems such as ride shares and crowdfunding applications. “Uranus” was written all over communal living, co-working spaces and firms such as ZipCar and TaskRabbit.
As far as Uranus is concerned, utopia is possible. But we must all cool down a little and think clearly and know that it’s all peace and love, in the end.
Special positions of Uranus
