Understanding Uranus in Astrology:

Riding the Wings of Change

If you’re feeling rebellious or on edge, your Uranus is probably hard at work inciting your inner rebel into action. If you’re coming up with amazing insights and genius ideas, that’s probably also Uranus’ influence in your birth chart.

The astrological Uranus is exciting and magnetic, a bringer of change and a herald of things to come. However, this planetary influence can also signify emotional coldness, aloofness and a desire to shock. At its best, Uranus helps us to create the future with flashes of originality and a true sense of the humanitarian bigger picture. At its worst, it reveals our isolation, perversion and disruptive natures.

What is the Meaning of Uranus in Astrology?

Uranus in astrology is associated with independence, freedom, original thinking and all things scientific and technological. Uranus’ position in your birth chart highlights your quirks and your individuality, as well as suggesting how much you follow (or don’t follow!) rules and convention.

This is also the planet of rebellion. If you’re a game-changer or a future-leader, Uranus is probably strong in your natal birth chart. However, the flip side of Uranus can be a certain aloofness or an unwillingness to get emotionally close to others. In astrology, Uranus is also about shocks and upsets, so its position in your astrological chart suggests areas where you may either experience or unconsciously cause disruption, surprises and sudden changes of heart.

What is the Importance of Uranus in the Birth Chart?

Uranus is a very slow-moving planet, spending approximately 7 years in each zodiac sign before moving on. For this reason, its planetary influence in astrology is both generational and personal.

Since everyone born in that 7-year period will have Uranus in the same zodiac sign, we can generalize about that generation’s Uranian influences. Your Uranus house is often more important, as this is the place in your natal chart where Uranus exerts a more personal influence on your astrology. Whether you are blessed with the planet’s more inspirational qualities or whether you will struggle more with its shadow side depends on the aspects made and received by Uranus to and from all of the other planets in your chart.

Key Facts About Uranus in Astrology

Positive expressions of Uranus energy: independence, originality, inventiveness, freedom, innovative thinking, humanitarianism, kindness, environmentalism, change, excitement, individuality
Challenging expressions of Uranus energy: rebellion, disruption, shock, chaos, restlessness, unpredictability, wilfulness, extremism, deviance, detachment
Uranus rules: Aquarius, that most ahead-of-its time zodiac sign. Uranus in Aquarius, although still largely a generational influence, is considered to be more astrologically powerful than its placement in other signs, because a ruling planet in its own sign is a very pure expression of planetary energy.
Uranus is exalted in: Scorpio. An exalted planet is usually strong and works positively.
Uranus is in detriment in: Leo. A planet in detriment is typically quite weak, with its energy manifesting negatively or being misused.
Uranus is in fall in: Taurus. A planet in fall is usually weakened, although positive aspects to the planet will help.

What is a Uranus Return?

In astrology, a Uranus return is when the planet Uranus returns to the exact cosmic location it occupied when you were born – the same degree of the zodiac, in the same sign. Since Uranus takes 84 years to travel through the whole zodiac, this occurs in the mid-80s for most people, if they are fortunate enough to live that long. Most of us do experience the Uranus quarter return, in our early 20s, when the planet creates a 90-degree angle to its original position. We also experience the Uranus half return, in our 40s, when Uranus takes up a position exactly opposite its birth position in your natal chart. Astrologically, the half return in particular can have a profound effect on the chart – at this age, many of us are wondering where our life has so far gone and may be feeling the onset of the middle-age blues. Uranus’ half return is often a contributing factor when people of this age suddenly re-invent their personal style, re-think their relationships or take on surprising new hobbies!

What’s Your Uranus Sign or House?

Remember, in astrology, your Uranus sign is of much less importance than its house. Your Uranus sign will however be of increased importance if it’s Aquarius or Scorpio, or if your astrological Uranus is significantly linked to your Sun or your Ascendant.

Uranus in 1st House or Uranus in Aries

You are fiercely independent and very determined to exert your individuality. A highly unpredictable and sometimes perverse nature means that you can act against your own best interests at times or back yourself into a corner. Depending how close Uranus is to your Ascendant, you may exhibit a very magnetic charisma.

Uranus in 2nd House or Uranus in Taurus

You are probably either brilliant with money, making surprising but fortunate financial choices, or you find it next to impossible to manage your money. You may find it difficult to express emotional closeness to others, and a desire to maintain your freedom at all costs conflicts with a desire to possess and control your loved ones.

Uranus in 3rd House or Uranus in Gemini

This planetary placement confers a brilliant and inventive mind, perhaps with a touch of eccentric genius. You are highly logical, but this does cut you off from your emotions somewhat. You are wilful and contrary by nature and will often argue or play devil’s advocate simply “because”.

Uranus in 4th House or Uranus in Cancer

You may have experienced an unusual or disrupted childhood. As an adult, you are restless, unable to decide between a stable, loving family and home life and your need for emotional freedom and independence. For this reason, you sometimes don’t take domestic or family responsibilities very seriously.

Uranus in 5th House or Uranus in Leo

You are a risk-taker with a lively appreciation for danger and excitement. As a parent, you are trendy, cool and friendly, but you may struggle to impose responsible boundaries within the family. Creative genius is present, and your innovative ideas are off the scale.

Uranus in 6th House or Uranus in Virgo

A hatred for routine can result in a very disorganized life, not through any lack of ability or talent but almost as a lifestyle choice. Keeping regular work habits could be problematic, but you are unfazed by the lack of a steadying influence, taking the ups and downs in your stride. You may also suffer from unusual health ailments.

Uranus in 7th House or Uranus in Libra

You may find it very difficult to commit to a relationship, given your intense desire for independence and freedom at all costs. Nonetheless, others find you very attractive in a kind of “mad, bad and dangerous” way. You will always need to maintain your own identity within a relationship, no matter how much in love you may be.

Uranus in 8th House or Uranus in Scorpio

You have a very devil-may-care, easy come, easy go attitude towards money and you may be very financially generous to others. However, a fear of intimacy may cause some issues within a relationship. Counseling or therapy can be useful, often leading to sudden and dramatic breakthroughs in self-understanding.

Uranus in 9th House or Uranus in Sagittarius

You have a strong flair for science and philosophy, and you thrive on intellectual challenge. A fascination with a foreign country or culture may be life-changing. However, restlessness can lead to a difficulty putting down roots, or a constant need to travel – this can create fickleness in adult relationships.

Uranus in 10th House or Uranus in Capricorn

Sudden and frequent changes of carer direction are likely with this placing, possibly on a whim or at a great personal cost. You have strong abilities in the tech and scientific fields, and political ability too. However, patience is very limited, and you may struggle to see projects through to a conclusion.

Uranus in 11th House or Uranus in Aquarius

You are very humanitarian in outlook and you work hard to further the causes you believe in. Social and group ties are very important to you, but you often cut people out of your life on a whim. Unpredictable and emotionally somewhat aloof, you are a difficult individual to get to know.

Uranus in 12th House or Uranus in Pisces

You are extremely kind and sensitive to social, global and environmental suffering. Highly motivated to create change for the better, your personal life may take second place to what you see as your calling. Deeply complex psychology can lead to you being your own worst enemy at times.

    I enjoy attending Zoom events on Thursday, especially when you choose and analyze charts for those who are present at the time. I can imagine their faces and I already know their names, and I feel like I know you all :-) And I'm always thrilled the way you react (like a child) when you open any chart, because you always see good things first, but also give useful advice when needed. That says a lot about you Kelli and I just love it. Thank you for that! :-) P.S. I can't mark the stars (I don't know why) but they're all on!Cached
