Uranus in the Complete Horoscope

The Source to Insight in Classical Astrology

Uranus in the horoscope.
The strife and ability to see through,
capture the essence and comprehend it,
a learning leading to insight.

UranusUranus is the closest of the planets that can not be seen with the naked eye. It was not discovered until 1781, so its role in astrology is rather recent, compared to the closer planets that have been observed for ages.

       In the horoscope, Uranus represents the higher intellect, like sort of a bigger sibling to Mercury. A good word for it is insight. Profound thought, things that take a lifetime to learn fully. Whereas Mercury deals with the everyday conscious intellect of communication and such, Uranus is the analytical process going on inside our minds, making us come to an understanding of life as a whole. The bystander observer we all have somewhere in our minds.

       What we learn from our lives.

Uranus in the Zodiac

Here are short descriptions of how each Zodiac sign influences Uranus, your insight and revelations, when that's where it is in your natal chart.

Aries brings an improvising mind, with difficulty to concentrate for long.

Taurus brings an inward mind and an interest reserved for what's palpable.

Gemini brings a mind that is quick to understand even complicated matters, but not that interested in developing them.

Cancer brings a capacity to see through others, to understand motivation and things implied.

Leo brings a fascination with one's own mind, and constant curiosity to explore it.

Virgo brings a mind set on detail and on what makes things work.

Libra brings a profound capacity for logical thinking, and readiness to revise one's ethics.

Scorpio brings an understanding of the incomprehensible, and an interest in anything mysterious.

Sagittarius brings a visionary mind and thoughts that wander very far.

Capricorn brings a competence to analyze complex situations and reach wise decisions.

Aquarius brings a mind capable of great feats and insights that few are able to reach.

Pisces brings bewilderment about the world and everything in it.

Uranus rules over Aquarius, the sign of wisdom, which means that it tends to be the most obvious and enforced in this sign. It exalts in Sagittarius, the sign of distant perspectives. It fits the best in air signs, which stand for thought. It is less stimulated in water signs, but there is really no sign where it gets restrained — with the possible exception of Aries.

Planet age

Each of the heavenly bodies represents a period in your life of about seven years. In the case of Uranus it is the period before retirement, when we are the wisest and know our ways as well as can be achieved.

       That would be approximately from your late 50s to your early 60s. What you have learned from your life so far. It is time to find that out, and to contemplate it.
