Uranus In Astrology Is Unusual, Unconventional, Unexpected, Unpredictable And Uncooperative…


Uranus is a pretty disruptive and rebellious planet, its energy can be stubborn and wilful, thriving on change, shock and surprise. It embraces discovery and invention, technology, and anything that is different. It is anti-Establishment, and revolutionary. Uranian impulses can drive us to revolt, rebel, perhaps even reject our family.

Because Uranus is a slow moving planet, we can describe it as generational, which means a whole generation of people will be born under the same Uranus sign. Rather than evaluating someone based on their Uranus zodiac sign, astrologers will look where it lies within the birth chart and what aspects it’s making to personal planets, that is the Sun, Moon, Venus and Mars etc.

Uranus Rules Aquarius

AquariusAll of the constellations in the zodiac are ruled by one of the planets, and Uranus takes charge of Aquarius. This means that those born with Aquarius rising or the Sun in Aquarius will often strongly embody the characteristics of Uranus – rebellious or revolutionary, unconventional or unusual.

Uranus Transits

A Uranus transit can turn your world upside down. Uranus prompts change and can be unsettling, depending on how you feel personally about planet Uranus, which can be indicated in the rest of your chart…

Under a Uranus Transit you might feel as if you can’t concentrate; you might not be able to eat or sleep! Under a Uranus conjunct natal Venus transit you could very well fall for an Aquarius…

Uranus Fashion

Uranus in fashion points to whatever is deemed unusual, rebellious or different, which changes over time.

At the moment, and until 2018 we have Uranus in Aries, so watch for attention-grabbing (Aries) themes shocking through fashion.

I find it interesting that Aries celebrities are taking the helm as spokespersons now: Russell Brand and Emma Watson to name a couple…

Uranus was transiting dreamy, escapist Pisces from 2003 through 2011

How Were We Shocked?

This was a time that saw star Amy Winehouse lost to drink. Her outbursts were reported on through the press as we watched her decline from sassy soul star to a wreck. The nation was stunned, although perhaps not totally surprised by her death in July 2011.

Jean Paul Gaultier dedicated his SS 2012 haute couture show to her, with models wearing beehives, flicked liner and her songs played as the soundtrack.

Uranus In Aquarius – 1996 to 2003

Uranus in Aquarius

Uranus was in his element during the transit through Aquarius, which fell from 1996 through to 2003.

How Were We Shocked?

During this time we saw Britpop, the Spice Girls and zany fashions take over, and perhaps it was the power of Aquarius that prompted the British/Turkish/Cypriot fashion designer Hussein Chalayan’s catwalk show, SS 1998.

Uranus In Capricorn – 1988 to 1996


Between 1988 and 1996 Uranus was in business-minded constellation, Capricorn.

How Were We Shocked?

In 1992 Madonna published the controversial and shocking (well, it was banned) Sex book.
