MEET URANUS I set great store by developing what in Tibetan Buddhism and tantric Hinduism is called ‘clear appearance of a god, and Uranus is a facet of the divine that plays an inescapable and totally crucial role in our life, and how exactly we will receive him into our destiny is mapped by the Sign he occupies in our birth chart, the House he occupies, and the energies he forms in aspect to the other planets.
Developing this clear appearance of the god energy, as well as developing clear appearance of each planet as he manifests in our astrology chart and in our life and destiny is crucial and invaluable perception.
My astrology always combines Western Astrology (for example psychodynamic and evolutionary western astrology) with Vedic Astrology (which offers vast and peerless declaration of our incarnational life purpose and issues in its unfoldment.
And as a matter of principle, all my astrology is geared to healing and empowerment in its orientation.
URANUS – POSITIVE
The great Awakener.
The Great Liberator.
The Initiator of New Order.
The Promethean spirit.
The Logos Principle: abstract thinking.
Transmutes fragmented acquired knowledge into comprehensive synthesis.
The Hierophant: veils that which it is essential to veil and hides that which must be discovered.
Transmits knowledge at the right time.
The purpose of Uranus is to create inner balance transcending dualism.
The Magician – conscious manipulation of energies building an ideal world: He manifests destruction where there is resistance.
Uranus bursts through Saturn’s Ego-defenses, block and repressions.
Prometheus stole fire from heaven.
Uranus gives us urge to act out excitement, freedom and experiment.
Radical, permanent change.
Sometimes Uranus may be experienced only on an inner plane: as Transfiguration – the light of the Universal mind shines through.
Uranus breaks all rules.
Uranus can manifest as Magic (causes change to occur in consciousness).
Uranus is Intuitive: SUDDEN alterations of consciousness.
Uranus is not limited in time and space. He manifests as taking a different perspective, pure genius.
Uranus is fresh, new, unheard-of, seemingly crazy ideas, ‘this might work!’.
The non-conformist, the eccentric, the rebel, the freedom fighter.
Uranus is independent, wired, restless. He moves with electric rapidity and detonating excitement. He is shock, a doorway opened to Heaven.
Uranus is at the leading edge: creativity/technology.
Uranus ruptures secrecy/deception.
Uranus is intensive shocking bursts of planetary electromagnetic energy.
He was discovered as a time of Democratic Republicanism (discovered 1781).
In some ways, Uranus is analytical, scientific, soaring creative imagination.
He throws off personality shackles. The butterfly emerges from the chrysalis.
Uranus represents forward-looking positive thinkers.
Uranus orbital astronomy reveals its unorthodoxy: he ‘rolls’ along his orbit at 90 degrees to the rotation angle of every other planet in the solar system.
Uranus is the spiritual warrior who quests beyond Mars’ vision. Venus is a route to Uranus. Jupiter and Saturn prepare us for Uranus’ ‘death’ or ‘birth’ trauma.
He is fated unconscious change.
Uranus is not limited in time and space.
Uranus is Transfiguration – the light of the Universal mind shines through.
He breaks all rules. Magic happens and causes change to occur in consciousness. He’s unpredictable, Intuitive and brings lightning flashes of ‘abnormal’ SUDDEN alterations of consciousness which may be experienced only on an inner plane.
URANUS – NEGATIVE
We fight Uranus’ change for fear of ending up worse. Negatively he manifests as obsessiveness, eccentricity, lack of balance decisive clarity. He has an inhuman energy of cold objectivity or highly-strung, nervy, over-charged persistent will. He is impersonal detached – even icy. He is cool rationality rather than warmth or sympathy. He is instability. He is niggling pursuit of the exciting – rejection of the familiar.
He can lead to social isolation, multiplicity of fragmented relationships, neglect of commitments, nervous illness, emotional repression, intolerance.
He is argumentative, erratic, unstable, destructive, disruptive, disorganizing. There’s experiment but fanaticism. There’s radical willful obstinacy.
Uranus brings permanent change with utter disregard for tradition.
THE URANUS SATURN POLARITY
If we resist Saturn’s slowly grinding away at our internal obstacles, Uranus will step in and totally shatter them. When Uranus intervenes during a transit, this is a chance to smash Saturn’s restrictive life scripts and get on track with your life. Uranus’ overwhelming enthusiasm for the future counterbalances Saturn’s value given to the past.
Uranus people find difficulty working for others. Their powerful rebelliousness leads them into constant difficulties with authority figures. They need plenty of elbow room and will simply not tolerate a restrictive job setting.
They can be highly original in manifesting their gifts to the world. They prefer to shatter all restraints and put the pedal to the metal in terms of their creativity. They are perhaps inventors with lightning fast ability to conceptualize complicated ideas.
In shadow form, they are hot-headed rebellious loose cannons; their knee-jerk reactions making it difficult for their brilliance to manifest.
Uranus Lovers love diversity in relationships. They enjoy relating to all kinds of interesting people. They are highly tolerant and supportive. They are only attracted to partners who are highly liberated in their outlook. Often marry more than once. May refuse to settle down with just one person.
Shadow Uranus, here, simply uses the partner for gratification of their sensual needs, moving on when they grow bored or tired. They crave a thrill a minute to maintain intensity.
Uranus Magicians always feel excitable or anxious deep insider restlessness drives them through the changes in their lives. They are the inner psychic daredevils who love the excitement of exploring the very edges of their own psyches and revel in cutting-edge speculation or study.
In shadow form, these people lead disorganized lives. They forget to pick up the pieces and their lives are a complete shamble.
Uranus Warriors are the most active of rebels. Assertively refusing to conform to anything. Feel claustrophobic when confined in any way. These people love the explosive thrill of speed and acceleration. This powerful inner urge causes them to take too many risks in their lives. They go through life on the seat of their pants. They are drawn to coffee and buzz accelerators. Inner urgency makes them workaholics.
Shadow Uranus, here, is prime candidate for burn-out, driving themselves in such a ruthless manner, ignoring warning symptoms of fatigue or pain. A serious illness may show up after years of ignoring symptoms. They alienate others because of their extreme individuality and refusal to compromise.
Uranus Astrology 2017 to 2018:
as I write this post, Uranus is about to enter the Vedic sign of Aries, where he will stay for the next seven years.
Uranus enters the Vedic or Sidereal Zodiac Sign of Aries on 8th April 2017. This is 24 degrees in the Western Astrology Tropical Zodiac.
Uranus continues to move forward until he reaches 4 deg Vedic Aries on 2nd August 2017 when he turns retrograde.
Uranus only turns direct again on 2nd January 2018, by which time he is back at 0 deg Vedic Aries (0 deg 27 mins).
as a special note: note that the two degrees’ zone either side of 0 deg Aries, is one of the three ‘Gandanta Zones’. The Gandanta Zones are places where Vedic water signs dissolve into the first flicker of a Vedic fire sign: here, the transition from Vedic Pisces to vedic Aries, and these zones are unstable, fraught and immaterial, but can be locus of inspiration.
It was Uranus’ last entry into Aries 84 years ago, that was marked by the burning of the Reichstag and the rise of Adolph Hitler and Europe’s descent into world War II.
This time so far, we have Brexit and the rise of Donald Trump.
This is also the time of the highly expansionary and successful Jupiter- Uranus opposition transiting in the heavens, where transiting Jupiter and Uranus are both in T-square to tectonic transiting Pluto.
