Episode 139 – Uranus Through the Houses in the Natal Chart
Uranus is the seventh planet from the Sun – and it’s an “ice giant” and the fourth-largest planetary mass in the solar system. It also has 27 moons and rings just like Saturn! In astrology, Uranus is the ruling planet of Aquarius and is associated with change, freedom, and individuality.
Where Uranus is placed in your natal chart shows the areas of your life where you are original, non-conformist, and where you might experience sudden changes. It can also tell something about your intuitive gifts or unique work you’re here to do as well as the groups or friends in your life. If afflicted, it can indicate where you’re rebellious.
1st: Uranus in the first house indicates you’re a true non-conformist. You don’t care if you fit in. Instead, you want to express your individuality freely. You might be regarded as eccentric or unconventional – and you may dress in a way that gets people talking. If poorly aspected, you may be unpredictable or unstable.
2nd: Uranus in the second house means your financial situation may be changeable. One day you’re earning a lot, the next day, it’s gone. You can be impulsive with money and may get involved in crackpot schemes. However, you may also have unique talents for making money or could be interested in dedicating your resources to humanitarian causes.
3rd: Uranus in the third house blesses you with an intuitive mind. You think differently than everyone else – and maybe quite inventive. You’re also objective, which makes you well suited for science, journalism, or media. You need a lot of mental stimulation because you’re easily bored. If Uranus is afflicted, you may be prone to impracticality or flakiness.
4th: Uranus in the fourth indicates an unusual upbringing or home life. Your family may be unconventional or eccentric. There may be a lot of freedom in your home – or your household may be filled with all sorts of tech gear. Friends become members of the family. If afflicted, you may move a lot or have problems with your parents.
5th: Uranus in the fifth house indicates romance that seems to come into your life under unusual circumstances. It’s possible you may meet someone out of the blue or through friends – but relationships could end as suddenly as they begin. This placement could also mean promiscuity. If you have children, they may be intellectually gifted or unusual in some way. If afflicted, you may seek pleasure through unhealthy means – or you may experience an unplanned pregnancy.
6th: Uranus in the sixth house could mean a career in science, computers, technology, or spiritual healing. You make friends at work easily and enjoy being in an environment where you are free to be yourself. You don’t like supervision much and may choose to leave jobs where you feel monitored. If afflicted, you may experience periods of job instability. A poorly aspected Uranus can also indicate stress-related health issues.
7th: Uranus in the seventh house could mean a need for freedom in your relationships. You will not tolerate being housebound – you want to come and go as you please. Relationships may be begin under unusual circumstances and end suddenly. If afflicted, you’ll need to be careful around lawsuits and public relations. One wrong move and you’re sued…or canceled.
8th: Uranus in the eighth house indicates a strong connection to the other side. You may possess mediumship abilities or have unique insights into what makes people tick. Your finances could change suddenly through inheritances or joint finances such as marriage or a business partnership. If afflicted, there may be issues with taxes or alimony. Unwise speculation should be avoided as much as possible.
9th: Uranus in the ninth house could indicate an interest in unorthodox ideas around religion, philosophy, higher education or other cultures. You may travel widely and at the spur of the moment. If afflicted, you may be drawn to weird cults or radical political/social philosophies. A poorly aspected Uranus here could also mean fanaticism.
10th: Uranus in the 10th house brings a career in science, technology, robotics, mathematics, or astrology. You may also be involved in something unusual or perhaps have a reputation for being an eccentric or radical. Your status could change suddenly and if afflicted, you could experience a quick rise to the top followed by a shocking downfall.
11th: Uranus in the 11th is accidentally dignified and usually indicates a strong humanitarian aspect to your personality. You’ll have friends from every walk of life and tend to accept people as they are. That being said, you’re also a bit of a lone wolf. Although you run with different packs, you’re not bound to any of them. You need freedom in your friendships. If afflicted, your friends may turn on you suddenly. You’ll need to be cautious with who gets into your inner circle.
12th: Uranus in the 12th house often means you are curious about how the world works – and how you do too. You’ll be interested in meditation, spiritual pursuits, and introspection. Your intuition is sharp and you may even be clairvoyant. If afflicted, you may lose your grip on reality. You need to remain grounded at all times, but especially if you’re dabbling in mediumship.
Those are some mini thoughts about Uranus in the natal chart houses. If you want to learn more, be sure to grab a copy of Astrology for Real Life – a No BS Guide for the Astro-Curious. I also recommend Planets in Houses: Experiencing Your Environment Planets by Robert Pelletier.
