Uranus is odd. It points to the odd in the natal chart. Whatever it aspects in the natal gets a ping-zing of quirk.
Uranus is known as the awakener. It is eccentric in natal chart operation and in orbit. The poles of Uranus are perpendicular to the ecliptic (orbital path around the Sun) which means it kind of rolls around the sun on its equator. Each pole will experience a 42 year day, followed by a 42 year night.

(Yes, Uranus has rings, and no they are not red, this is an infra-red camera pic.) The reason Uranus appears such a vivid blue is the atmosphere absorbs all red wavelengths of the visible spectrum, preventing it from bouncing back into space – all we see is the blue-green spectrum of color.
Saturn (terra firma, being grounded) is the traditional ruler of Aquarius. The root (security) and sacral (desire) chakras are in the red color spectrum they are primal and personal, (represent being grounded).
While the blue color spectrum is the 3rd eye (intuition, pure communication) and is seeing the BIG PICTURE – it is more of a tribe vibe, being open to new possibilities, and innovations.
Uranus shifts between the two in an instant. Grounded to ether ! Snap !
Uranus is by nature an energy shifter. It shifts perspectives, vision and thinking like a lighting bolt.
Uranus went retrograde on July 9, 2011 – direct motion reboots things stalled at that time. Also look to your house of Aries at zero degrees, this is where Uranus goes direct. Pay attention to the same degrees of Libra (opposition, others and compromise) and Capricorn and Cancer (squares, the inner tension) for where to expect groovy energy downloads.
Uranus goes direct with a quintile – that’s a gift, a talent – the spirit quest – to Venus, the planet of love, art, beauty, kindness, self-worth and values and oh yeah…the green thing, money. $$
Actively engage a shift in these areas – that’s your talent, so use it.
What Uranus will bring up is anybody’s guess, it is the wild unpredictable the free and untamed.
Bend rather than break ~ be pliable, resilient and kind.
Retrograde motion is when the planetary energy is turned inward, direct motion energies pour outward. The few days prior to either are usually amped up a bit, lol. You may tweak – fair warning ! Just keep in mind others are tweaking too – particularly those with Uranus prominent in the natal ~
when the going gets weird, the weird turn pro.
Uranus rules astrology, wireless, telepathy, inventors, the eureka ! , and magnetics.
Uranus’ magnetic field is odd in that it is not centered on the center of the planet and is tilted almost 60 degrees with respect to the axis of rotation.
Since Uranus rules magnetics, polarities (positive and negative), and higher thought – be aware of what you draw to you by thought – for thoughts become deeds.
Because this Full Lunar eclipse is in Gemini (rules hands) I am leaving you with some info about mudras !
Different fingers represent different elements :
Finger — element it represents
Thumb — Fire or Sun
Index finger — Air or Wind
Middle finger — Sky or Space *
Ring finger — Earth
Small finger — Water
*note : now I will always see this gesture (in title) in a whole new way YaY !
There are various hand positions used in both kung fu and in yoga. The hands in kung fu often form shapes that are representational of animals. The tigers claw, the snakes head or the cranes beak are all traditional shaolin hand positions. In yoga the hand gestures are called mudras. A mudra sometimes is a symbolic shape similar to the ones in kung fu, yet more often they are energetic connections being made in the nadis or meridians. By connecting fingers, or pointing certain directions we direct energy and link up specific channels to generate a particular set of internal resonances. The hands are vitally important to the brain. There is an equal amount of cortical tissue dedicated to the hand as there is to the whole rest of the body. By engaging our hands, our breath, our bodies, our focus we awaken our inner sense of awareness and unify ourselves.
