Uranus in Astrology: Meaning and Significations

Uranus in Astrology: Meaning and Significations

In episode 320 astrologer Rick Levine joins Chris in the studio to talk about the meaning of the planet Uranus in astrology, and what it signifies in a birth chart.

In general, Uranus is said to signify sudden and unexpected events, revolutions, innovation, eccentricity, erraticness, disruption, unpredictability, sudden breakthroughs, quirkiness, rebelliousness, electricity, advancement through technology, rapid growth, and uncommon pursuits.

Uranus was first discovered on March 13, 1781, and within a century or so astrologers had worked out most of its meanings and incorporated it into astrology.

Since Uranus is the first outer planet in our series, we spend a bit of time in the beginning of the episode talking about how astrologers figured out the meaning of newly discovered planets.

One access point was understanding some of the events that happened around the same time as the discovery, such as the American Revolution, the French Revolution, the Industrial Revolution, and the culmination of the Enlightenment period.

Our first attempt to record this episode was cut short when the power went out about a minute into the recording. We released a separate outtake of that power outage on YouTube, and also included a brief clip from it at the end of this episode.

  • Hey Guys, just half way through watching this podcast and I just have to tell you how brilliant this episode is! Smashed it!! To use a Uranian turn of phrase lol. So delighted to have access to this high quality dive in to this somewhat frightening/exciting figure, definitely going to check out the other planets after this.
    Thanks thanks thanks

  • I loved this lengthy episode- I could listen to you and Rick all day.

    I’m interested in the other show about Uranus that you mentioned- where people talked about their Uranus aspect experiences.

    Can you provide a link?

  • This is the best episode ever! Thank you for the podcast in general and for this episode in particular !!! My natal Uranus is both tightly conjunct and parallel my Sun in 3rd house, I`m heavily right-brained, always think outside the box and can totally confirm everything you both said 😀

  • Thank you for this podcast in general and this episode in particular!!! My natal Sun is conjunct and parallel Uranus and I can`t agree more with all you said 🙂
