Mysterious and distant, planets have always fascinated humans. We have incented various ways of trying to understand the universe and see how everything happening out there affects our life on Earth.
One of the ongoing concerns of all humankind, yet still unanswered, is about life in the cosmos, life on some other planet. We have always been intrigued by these immeasurable spaces, millions of light years away.
One particular discipline, a pseudo science, is involved with something else. Astrology, an ancient ‘science of the stars’ have been trying to interpret meanings of planetary movement since the first days of civilization. It connects planetary influence with peoples’ lives.
Astrology is a complex and serious approach to understanding the life and its connection with those mysterious far away spaces, regardless of what one might think of it.
There are different kinds of astrology, to say so, developed in different parts of the world. They all share the same main idea; cosmos and planets directly affect peoples’ destinies and even shape up their personality. Some of the greatest astrological systems are, for example, Vedic and Chinese and, of course, Western astrology, which is what we turn our attention on.
Western astrology observes ten planets of Solar system, including the Sun and the Moon. It places them in zodiac circle and carefully analyses aspects all elements create amongst themselves. There are other elements besides planet, there are also astrological houses and all of these create a unique picture and horoscope. Horoscope is delivered from a birth chart.
A birth chart is a graphic representation of all elements mentioned an image of sky, taken at the time of someone’s birth. That is a birth chart in natal astrology and it gives a detailed personalized horoscope.
However, astrological analyses and horoscopes could be delivered even for plants and animals, the whole nations and countries. This is good to know.
Natal astrology is, however, what interests the most of people. We would all like to know what the destiny has in store for us.
Are we going to live happily, are we going to achieve great professional success, are we going to get married and have children, are we going to be happy and what about our closest and dearest ones? This is what most people ask an astrologer.
He or she, however, would not give you straightforward answers. For the most part, it is you who shape up your own destiny. Your horoscope tells about all sorts of things, your natal chart tells about your personality traits, temperament and character.
All information help you have much better insight into yourself, as a person, and into circumstances given.
Uranus and Horoscope
Some of information a birth chart reveals are positions of planets. This, of course, does not mean much to you, if it is not interpreted by an astrologer who possess great knowledge about astrological planetary in total.
Let us talk about one particular planet, Uranus, one of transpersonal planets. Uranus is a modern planet, discovered in the late eighteen century and it was not known in the earliest days of astrology.
Astrological planet Uranus represents everything that is the opposite of mundane and usual, everything eccentric and innovative, original.
Uranus symbolizes innovative and revolutionary ideas, turnovers, rebellion, sudden changes in course, transformation, surprising events and genius ideas. Many would say Uranus could make one either a genius or a complete lunatic; the thin is line between the two.
It of course depends on the place Uranus takes in your natal chart.
Uranus travels around the Sun for something less than one century, in terms of earthly years. It is a long journey of eighty-four years, to be precise. It changes its position in the Zodiac slowly; Uranus occupies one zodiac sign for seven years.
Astrologically, it means Uranus affects whole generations, because all people born during that period of seven years will most likely have Uranus in the same zodiac sign.
Although sometimes it is claimed that Uranus does not affect an individual greatly, since it is definitely not a personal planet, such as Mercury, Venus, Mars, the Sun and the Moon (yes, the last two are enlisted as planets in astrology), we would say its effect is not completely negligible.
Finally, Uranus does bring rather shaking changes that definitely affect humankind as a whole, but all such changes would affect an individual as well.
Uranus is the ruler of eleventh astrological house, the one that is related to all kinds of success related to ones character. Eleventh is the house of friendship and all sorts of relations with people.
It is associated with romantic love, especially platonic kind of love. It is the house of humanitarian conscience, sympathy and help. It is related to our nervous system, fields of interest, progress, all kinds of incomes, the ability to profit and move forwards.
Eleventh house breathes the libertarian energy of its ruler Uranus. It represents openness towards unexpected and unpredictable situations in life and one’s ability to understand and accept them. This is the field of the purest form of freedom, good fortune, but also challenges and trials.
All of this is closely related to freeing and wild energy of the innovator Uranus. Uranus is a modern planet and its energy is thus associated with everything modern and progressive.
To have Uranus in particular zodiac sign in your natal chart is important to understand. The way it is going to manifest depends greatly on aspects and of all other elements in your birth chart, especially your most personal traits and temperament. Uranus is considered a cosmic transformer.
It is the planet of revolution and everything new, original and innovative. In modern astrology, Uranus is associated with revolutionary technological ideas, for instance.
Uranus shapes up new ideas, in all areas of life. In general, Uranus changes perspectives, attitudes, points of view. It rules over the sign of Aquarius; its nature is libertarian and humanitarian.
Uranus puts an accent on human rights, freedom and humanitarian ideas in total. It opens new horizons, awakens new ways of thinking, challenges you and makes you dare do things you could only imagine. We could say it is a planet of progress, in a way.
In one’s birth chart, Uranus directly affects intellect and one’s sense of uniqueness and originality. Uranus always seeks for positions of power and it breaks all bonds; Uranus does not accept limitations and restrictions, because its energy is sudden, breakthrough energy, wild and unleashed.
It could bring major changes on a global plan, but also in an individual’s life.
We have entered the age of Uranus in Taurus, so you could find out more on how this is going to affect all humankind and our world, as well as people of particular native zodiac signs. Today we talk about Uranus in Cancer.
