Uranus

UranusUranus bears a very interesting relationship to Saturn. Prior to the discovery of Uranus, Aquarius and Capricorn were both ruled by Saturn. Uranus was the first of the last three planets to be discovered. With its discovery, the neat system that had operated prior to that time began breaking down. Dramatic changes have occurred due to humanity’s tremendous increase in knowledge. It is the function of Uranus to bore holes in the walls of Saturn in order that we might see beyond to new horizons. Uranus deals with curiosity. It asks embarrassing questions like “why”? And “what”? It makes us dissatisfied with what exists and what we have been taught about what exists. So Uranus, representing a threat to Saturn, took over the rulership of Aquarius, the sign with the keywords of “I know.” The quality we recognized as Aquarian also underwent vast changes. We began to see, with the aid of the microscope and the telescope, things that were previously invisible to us.

Uranus is considered the higher octave of Mercury, ruling wireless communication, as well as mental insight and mental telepathy. As the ruler of Aquarius, a mental air sign, it is associated with electrical storms. It is associated with all that is unconventional, eccentric, original, anything very new or very old and therefore unusual. It contributes to genius. It is inspirational in that it contributes to lightening like flashes of insight which reveals continuity from only fragments of information. It is also magnetic, representing both negative and positive polarities. It may hold or repel.

Uranus attracts platonic relationships. Its concern is the brotherhood of man. It contributes to unorthodox personal relationships when they are seen as challenging established order or ‘acceptable mores’. Uranus can shatter or illuminate with little regard for the consequences of its action. It is revolutionary in every sense of the word.

Uranus represents a bid for individual freedom. It is a challenge to anything which restricts individual freedom. It smashes barriers. However, it largely threatens only dead wood and outmoded structures which are no longer protecting the life within but stifling awareness. It is seen in the example of the chicken about to be hatched from the egg shell. The shell was built and ruled by Saturn, a very necessary element to the life of the chicken while it is being formed. However, when the chicken has matured to the point where it is ready to hatch, it becomes necessary that the shell break in order to free the life within. The new Saturn walls are the skin and bone structure of the newly formed life. Saturn represents the letter of the law whether or not we comprehend the meaning of that law. When we have achieved a new level of maturity, the letter of the law can become stifling. We must be able to apply the spirit of the law with as much concern as we previously applied the letter of the law. For example, we cannot revoke the law of gravity. However, we can, by coming to a new understanding of the laws which apply, build an airplane which will travel in the air. But if these new principles or laws are broken, the underlying law of gravity takes over and the plane crashes earthward. It is the influence of Uranus which lures us to go beyond the obvious law to a new dimension and understanding which always runs contrary to the previous law it is seeking to overcome.

When Uranus is strong in a chart, it generally brings adventure and unexpected happenings of all kinds. It is usually impossible to plan anything. Something always happens to change things at the last minute. Only spontaneity or last minute plans seem to work out successfully. Such people are ingenious and resourceful. They love variety and change, often becoming bored very soon when things become ordinary and routine. They are usually very capable and stand up well in emergencies of all kinds. They love a challenge or a dare.

From early youth, Uranian individuals are different from others in one way or another. They will not be pigeon-holed. They lack concern for what other people think or any established standards. No matter what they do, they do it differently, according to their own point of view. They are curious about everything. They build blueprints for Utopia and expect others to conform to their suggestions. They are anxious to solve the problems of society and foster the communistic principle of the greatest good to the greatest number. Individuals may sometimes be sacrificed to the smooth running of the whole. They are more concerned with mass suffering than individual pain. Their concern with the individual is only to see how s/he fits into the total pattern.

Wherever Uranus is in the chart shows the individual’s need for freedom and independence. It shows desire for adventure and willingness to sacrifice security to explore new worlds. It shows natural curiosity, and whether or not you can make last minute changes of plans without disrupting your equilibrium. It will indicate the areas of life that will be subject to unexpected disruptions and change of plans. It threatens separations and insecurities unless you are prepared to deal creatively with the area stimulated. It is also the point where you may demonstrate your resourcefulness and creativity.

Each one of us must rely on our own assessment of any situation and take the consequences for our own judgment. The following planet, Neptune, indicates clues as to how the individual measures up in this area. One of the major indicators is whether or not the person is willing to be responsible for their individual perspective. God assigns to us the responsibility for what we do and how we experience our world. Whenever someone says “I am nothing but a channel,” they may be denying the God-given responsibility that Uranus designs and demands.
