What? No zodiac sign today? I hate to break it to you, boys and girls, but there’s more to astrology than the signs. In fact, planets are where it’s at. Signs are just butter on your bread, dressing on your salad, scallions on your sweet potato.
Uranus is the planet of revolution, sudden change, and independence. We all have this disruptive influence in our charts, and because this outer planet spends about seven years in a zodiac sign as it travels around the Earth (!), its sign placement is not so important. Rather, its house placement shows where you need to shake up the status quo in your life.
We all have twelve houses in our chart, the houses being a way to divide time and space. They relate to areas of our lives, and the Seventh House concerns marriage and other significant partnerships. The Seventh House is the “dusk” part of our chart. If the Sun were in your Seventh House, that means that our star was soon to set at the time of your birth.
There’s about a 1-in-12 chance that anyone you meet has Uranus in their Seventh House. Woe be unto the poor soul who falls in love with such a person! The U7 (let’s call them), somewhat like someone with Venus in Aquarius, needs independence in his marriage or significant partnership. He won’t be tied down in any type of traditional relationship. U7 may be attracted to eccentric, brilliant or off-beat types as partners. Or he needs an unconventional arrangement — maybe an open marriage, or at least freedom from the constraints of being at his spouse’s side at all times. He may also feel that significant others are forcing change upon him, or that his spouse undergoes personal revolutions on a regular basis.
Uranus in the Seventh is a more powerful placement than Venus in Aquarius. U7 must continually break down the rigid structures of partnership. He will be compelled to shake things up when they become stagnant. Hence, U7 is not the ideal man if you want anything resembling a stable partnership. This does not mean that you can’t maintain longevity — but to make it work, you have to be flexible enough to withstand periodic upheavals in your love life. I guarantee it won’t be boring, but if you can’t tolerate the relationship equivalent of the Storming of the Bastille, turn away now.
