Symbol

Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto are generational planets, spending 6 to 8 years, 13 to 15 years, and 17 to 31 years in each sign, respectively.

Uranus represents your Way of Awakening. Its placement in Sign and House reveals where we must be unconventional and challenge norms, where we need to do or encounter the unexpected, and how we need to express our authenticity.

Consider a person with Uranus in Virgo in the 11th House. Virgo is an Earth sign. Earth’s expression is accomplished, persistent, and practical. In Virgo, the Element acts critically, meticulously, and pragmatically. So, his or her key phrase is “Your Way of Awakening manifests through your critically-minded and methodical quest for and attraction to the meticulous and practical community.” In short, they are looking for a “practically” unusual tribe or an unusually pragmatic community. Jest aside, they seek to join with others who have been awakened by the need to build and join in the practical steps to make and sustain a community.

Uranus expresses itself through a Sign and acts most powerfully in an area of your life by House. This section will look at all 12 Sign and House placements for Uranus. It is important to make a clear distinction between the Sign and House. While it is correct that each Zodiac Sign rules a particular House, it is vital not to conflate the two.

Uranus in Aries is not the same as Uranus in the 1st House even though Aries rules the first House. A person with Uranus in Aries has a Way of Awakening devoted to independent and maverick behavior regardless of House placement. Someone with Uranus in the 1st House has a Way of Awakening devoted to figuring oneself out and working on identity issues over the course of his or her lifetime.
