Uranus is the wild card in astrology, it is the ruling planet of the Sun sign Aquarius it represents the avant-garde, the unexpected, sudden surprises, lightening, and sudden flashes of change and insight. The house that holds Uranus in the natal chart is where you will likely experience the unexpected. I have Uranus in the 8th house this is indicative of sudden and unexpected financial gains and losses as well as flashes of psychic insights. Uranus in the 6th house indicates ever changing jobs and routines, Uranus in the 4th house indicates constantly moving or inconsistency in the home life, Uranus in the 7th house attracts eccentric partners and on again off again relationships. Uranus aspecting Venus in the natal chart is said to be the “divorce aspect” Uranus energy is sudden in aspect to Venus the planet of love, it indicates fast love, sudden love and falling just as quickly out of love. I believe Katie Holmes has this aspect in her natal chart.
Uranus is the planet of rebellion and where we go against the grain. Natally I have Uranus in trine aspect to my natal sun; the energies are light and not overpowering when two planets come together via trine. The Sun in trine aspect to Uranus indicates I’m comfortable with my authenticity; there isn’t a struggle for integration between my ego and the unexpected, I’m comfortable with change and adaptable. Someone with a hard aspect such as their natal Sun opposing Uranus may swing between the qualities of their Sun sign and then unexpectedly to a more liberal side. This can be alarming to friends and loved ones especially if your Sun sign is for instance in the home loving sign of Cancer , you will often be all those things of a Cancerian nature dependable, tending to loved ones, baking cookies but then suddenly you take off on a grand vacation alone without telling anyone. Uranus rules freedom, it is the nonconformist of the zodiac the opposition requires you to try and balance both sides of yourself.
I’m not very Uranian, a person is said to be “Uraniun” if they have a lot of personal planets aspecting Uranus. I do however have Uranus rising (Aquarius on the Ascendant) but I’m more Plutonian, Pluto aspects my Sun, Moon, Venus and beyond. But I’m always writing about Pluto, depth, love, dark, obsession I figured I would take a walk on the wild side and discuss Uranus. I do have Uranus in hard aspect to Saturn. Anyone born between 1975 and 1977 will have this aspect it is considered generational being that Saturn and Uranus move at such a slow pace. For everyone I imagine it manifests differently for me I’m anti establishment and have been this way since birth. Uranus planet of rebellion in hard aspect to Saturn planet of structure indicates I challenge authority, confrontations with authority figures have been a reoccurring theme throughout my life. I long ago adapted the philosophy; rules are made to be broken.
When I look at Uranus in synastry I find it to be quite depressing, many people will declare Uranian love is exciting and exhilarating; that quick rush together and the equally quick; falling apart. It must be sad to have your body jolted with high voltage electricity only to be left holding nothing. I will take the depths of Pluto any day. You may have to climb out of the depths of hell but at least you will emerge and be reborn.
This is how it works; Saturn in astrology is responsibility & structure, Neptune is transcendental and spiritual love, Pluto is transformative love and well Uranus is similar to the black sheep in astrology, it’s that crazy family member you invite to Thanksgiving Dinner and pray he doesn’t embarrass you, I’m that person most of the time. Weird? I suppose with Pluto and Uranus in my 8th house combined I just don’t give a fuck.
I have a thing a weird difference in my personality, ok I have many weird inner workings to my personality but one is: I really like a dependable man. I’m not one of these ladies that tolerate too much bullshit, so I expect a man to show up on time, partake in traditional courting and I’m sure there is something in my plutonian nature that draws me to a reserved man. I have Mars in Taurus that is what I seek in a man, certainly not a Taurus but a man that embodies the essence of the dependable earth sign. But I prefer women with a story; I cannot stand the company of a conservative woman. I shake at the thought, I like a woman who has really lived that has a story to tell beyond DIY projects where she turned some old shower curtain into a duvet cover! Ha Ha I think this is because my Venus is in chatty and inquisitive Gemini. Recently I did some astrology app where it suggested I start picking someone more like me , evidently this is no easy task and quite frankly I like someone that is different than my eccentric authority challenging self. But do you know what happens when you pick someone that is different. Uranus is what happens. My Uranus will touch a personal planet of someone else in synastry and Uranus isn’t the kind of energy you settle down with, it creates conflicts. Uranus is the crazy cousin that invited himself over for dinner but you just can’t ignore:
When I decided to do this piece I just new I had to look at the synastry I shared with a particular ex. I was the pursuer, he is quiet, very much to himself, I on the other hand am loud, argumentative, and say exactly what is on my mind. We dated for a year, I care about him, we will always be friends (just friends), however while we dated he continuously attempted to sensor me. When asked by a mutual friend what it was like to date me, he summed it up in one word: roller-coaster. My Uranus aspects all of his personal planets. Once while out to dinner I wore boots that extend over the knees and he was embarrassed, i can assure you I dont dress like a whore! In any event till this day he tells me he can’t believe I wore those boots to a “family style restaurant”. My self expression never sat well with him neither did the way in which i communicate. The way in which I communicate is offensive to him, till this day he remarks “I can’t believe you said that out loud” and on and on. He is a very black dress pants, button down shirt kind of guy
This is me showing up with gold shoes, a gold bag and dress to boot.
My Uranus squared his Sun in exact degree aka his identity: this creates being attracted to the Uranian person but the Uranus persons way of doing things threatens the Sun individuals sense of self, The Sun person also views the Uranus person as irresponsible and rebellious.
My Uranus semi squared his Moon: The Uranus person feels the Moon person is too conservative; the Moon is very security conscious and feels their security is threatened by Uranus person’s unpredictable behavior.
My Uranus Squared his Mercury: As I stated above he finds my manner of speech erratic and fast passed, he is a details person and often requests I slow down and I can’t so I usually just cut the conversation off. There is a basic lack of communication; something tends to be off in the way you relate to each other mentally. Uranus can be cold a detached.
When Uranus aspects another individuals personal planet it wants to shock it, if It touches the Moon in one chart it wants to make you feel alive, if it touches the Mars of another person, you will be experiencing some very interesting and open sexual liaisons, Uranus aspecting Venus often leaves the Venus person feeling like what the hell just happened? Are you coming back? There is some sort of odd detachment of Uranus. Uranus ties are unusual and exciting…lasting not so much. Hold on and enjoy the ride, apparently it’s a roller-coaster for the personal planet person. Next time we’ll review Saturn in synastry and in the natal chart. I’m going to need a red bull and 2 cups of coffee to feel inspired
