If Uranus or Aquarius energy is emphasized in your chart, you’re a loner who seeks intimacy in relationships (sometimes). Even the most anti-social Uranus person occasionally craves human contact. This is when you confront the tension between your status as a human being versus the suspicion that you’re not from this planet. Read on to find out if you’re a Uranus person, and how you can deal with this contradictory energy.
The Alien Among Us
Uranus represents the collective and liberation from group conditioning. This encapsulates the dilemma you live with every day. You are able to step back from the herd and see the bigger picture. You understand (but don’t always empathize with) everyone. That ability to intellectualize and not be overwhelmed by emotions enables you to be a friend, in the purest sense. For the most part, you don’t judge. All you ask is time and space to be yourself. You can be a humanitarian, a rebel or a bitter loner, depending on how you handle your status as someone who doesn’t quite fit in.
And it’s not that you want to fit in, but it gets frustrating when you meet someone and think that this could finally be the one who understands you — only to have him take it personally when you don’t respond the way you “should.” He thinks he’s getting a social butterfly but finds out you’re an introvert. Or, she gets offended when she senses that her lingering embraces make you squirm. The flip side of this is the possibility that your behavior is so unpredictable, your partner doesn’t know how to respond.
If one or more of the following apply to you, you are a Uranus person:
- personal planets, 1st/7th house cusp or ruler in Aquarius
- Uranus conjunct (within 4 degrees) any of the angles
- Uranus in hard aspect to the personal planets, any planet in the 7th house or 1st/7th house ruler
- multiple (more than three) easy aspects from Uranus to the personal planets
- personal planets or 1st/7th House ruler in the 11th House
Making Peace With the Group
If you’re a Uranus person, you don’t need anyone urging you to embrace your differences. But what you may have difficulty with is your relationship to the group. And this will directly impact your one-on-one relationships. You can’t get away from the fact that Uranus is about the collective, and if you feel marginalized, disgusted with humanity, or scornful of all the traditionalists, that negative energy is going to leak into your love life. This may not be an issue: maybe you’re cool with it all. But if you’re not, know that before you can have a healthy relationship with someone, you need to make peace with the group. Humanity is fucked up, but you’re still part of it. Millions of people are cruel and stupid, but millions of other people are loving and intelligent. Even if some people don’t get you, other people will want to get to know you. And the people who love you may never fully understand you.
