In part 3 of Uranus as Lord of Karma, we look at the way to analyse the Astrology of Uranus, natally and predictively. And we look at the issue of whether the karmic impact of Uranus is fated, or whether we can do something to perceive, understand and then change/transform the effect of Uranus in our life.
Uranus in our Birth Chart: Fated or Not?
Uranus is a crucial part of the karma with which you start your life. He is one of the planets in your birth chart which are in fact a map of your destiny and potential, your karma and your means to achieve growth in relation to your karma. Here’s a list of the topics we take a look at in this blog: just a tiny few of the themes for understanding of Uranus in our birth chart:
1. Uranus v. Saturn
2. Uranus in the Signs
3. Uranus in the Houses
4. Uranus Aspects to other planets
5. Chart Aspect Shapes and Uranus:
6. Uranus Retrograde:
7. Uranus in Aspect to the Nodes of the Moon:
8. Uranus in Synastry:
9. Uranus in our Predictive Astrology: Fated or Not?
1. Uranus v. Saturn:
Uranus brings bursts and phases of awareness and inspiration. Fresh new insights appear out of nowhere. What you always knew was there but pretended wasn’t, suddenly becomes plane.
If you’re sensitive you can feel the beams of inspiration coming and going. They heighten your awareness, they stimulate you intellectual perception. They enhance your intellectual energy. You discover things about your life and your present phase. You find new solutions. You see how stuck or inhibited you’ve been. You become spontaneous, and can make sudden decisions and take sudden new directions.
Saturn grinds away with a life of blocks and duties. Uranus steps in and shatters them.
But: Remember: Saturn castrated Uranus!!!
Uranus breaks illusion.
Uranus frees you from dependency.
Uranus lets you insist on your right to strike out into revolution.
Uranus jolts you to break free from your shackles.
Uranus makes you agile. Keenly aware. Whole.
You now know that God is an energy that flows and manifest through you. Turn away from the imposed bureaucratic priesthood and the goo-goo stupid congregation, and the manipulative ‘charm’ of the priest.
Importantly you loosen your hold on your past scripts. Be prepared for the erratic. You are spurred to change your patterns and obsessions. They seem of less consequence. They are seen as outmoded and overdue for replacement.
Uranus energy brings you sudden higher awareness, sudden big-picture perception, instant knowing. And you must stand up for this. Don’t let others drag you down. Sudden ability to do things better and faster. It is an enlightenment. Uranus breaks inner barriers to his enlightenment. He blows apart outgrown thought patterns and preconceived family or societal programming and stuck unthinking limited beliefs and attitudes.
Uranus also acts on your life powerfully as your life predictively unfolds. He brings you karmic challenges, as well as inspiration and energies of revolution with the divine purpose of destroying your blocks and maximising your realisation of your potential.
You need to perceive their scope and definition, and perceive what is their most positive meaning and potential.
Above all you must be prepared to stand up for your uniqueness.
You must be prepared to stand up for your new perceptions, beliefs and intentions. No sniffing at life! No stuck patterns, now!
Freedom, originality, self-honesty
You must be prepared to strike out into new continents.
You must be prepared to be different from those around you.
Your Uranus karmas are not fated. You need to see them as opportunities for healing and for your empowerment. You need to be able to be discerning both about clinging to blocks that you are crassly letting hold you back, and abut new presentiments and goals which are impractical. Observe your thoughts, desires and behaviour; bring discrimination. Detach yourself from relationship scripts which hold you back from seeing the truth, and from being open to revolution.
And you must be thankful and celebrate what Uranus has brought you to. Delight in your constant amazement. Accept fascination. Cherish change.

They include optional healing add-ons

2. Uranus in the Houses:
Take as example Uranus in 11th House in your birth chart: karmically, Uranus is about trauma held in past life memories, about uprising against capricious and unjust tyranny, in the subtle mind, the subjugation and devaluation of our full potential, about our past life subjugation to outmoded institutions.
We can usefully contact and work with these past life karmas through past life regression, dream work, vision journey. Our other lives become a necessary quarry for self-healing, for individuation, for becoming the fullness of the special spark we incarnated to become.
The Outer Planet Uranus – a God of Change, can thus become an Evolutionary Agent.
So, let’s take a brief look at an example: Uranus in 11th House:
this is the person who is destined to experience (and heal from the experience) of living an inner lie due to experience of rejection or punishment, of fitting into groups on a false basis as a result. The attempt to fabricate security out of false, conditioned, imposed ways produces enormous mental stress, fear, crippling anxiety and emotional torsion: enforced living of a lie, in fact the inability to see the truth until the Uranus healing crisis arrives!
And how often does this individual make dysfunctional fittings in to groups, until the healing crisis finally arrive, and he finds and insists on his true worth, and so refuses any longer to fit into the unworthy groups.
3. Uranus in the Signs:
Take as example Uranus in Cancer. Clearly Uranus’ passages through Signs are generational, but we can usefully take a look for the need to heal Uranus trauma and re-birth in respect of the individual who has Uranus in Cancer. Does he need to experience early or indeed ongoing absence of good mothering so as to learn to mother himself? When will the healing crises come that will end his pattern of going for mother’s milk where it can never be found??? What are the effects on him of this karma: helplessness, touchiness? Dependence, worthless self-image?
We can seek to identify Cancerian past-life experiences. Was there imprinting in the womb? What were the circumstances of his birth and conception? What childhood wounds? What emotional scripts?
4. Uranus in Aspect to our birth chart planets:
Take as example Uranus in aspect the Sun:
Sudden inspirations. New creativity.
Swift and sudden important developments.
You are abruptly shaken out of your stuck ways.
You face life with new courage and faint in your own powers.
You clear away limitations
You want the new. You strive obsessively for your dreams to come true.
Uranus opposition Sun can force change upon you.
Health treatments can go well.
Your life becomes wild and chaotic, unpredictable and disruptive
A big theme running through our life is the Saturn – Uranus dilemma.
5. Chart Aspect Shapes and Uranus:
Psychotherapeutic Astrology has a magnificent repertoire of chart aspect shapes that identify the personality structures caused when planets aspects form chart aspect shapes, including of course unaspected planets.
These represent karmic structures within the personality which get revealed to our perception at predictable dates, and which can be worked with using psychosynthesis approach.
Here’s an example:
6. Uranus Retrograde:
If you have a planet retrograde in your birth chart this has huge karmic effect. You will have difficulties with all the life-principles that your retrograde planet represents and indicates. You will have to take extra car with the principles represented by that planet. You will have to do hard karmic work to get right the nature and function of that planet. You will have got it wrong in past life. Or you will realise in your between-life taking stock that you ar ready to learn more about the life-functions of that planet. And so will have to work extra hard to grow your handling of that planet in this life. Astrological perception around the nature of your manifestation of a retrograde planet in your life is crucial.
Retrograde Uranus means that you will find it harder to bring in needed revolution. You will find it harder to receive and implement the call to revolution when your Uranus transit happens.
Retrograde Uranus plays havoc with relationships. It can make the person false to their identity. It can lead to irritability or fighting. It can make it so hard for them to express their inner freedom, and so this is taken out on the partner.
Retrograde Uranus make the individual scatter his efforts in a driven way to find information and paradigms that will help him fill the aching void that he lives in a way that is false to his individuality. He may have learned something about independence in a previous lifetime, and is now really tested to implement it, and harmonise it with other areas of his life, or perhaps he was not independent enough in previous lifetime.
7. Uranus in Aspect to the Nodes of the Moon:
When analysing the manifestation of Uranus in conjunction to one of the Nodes of the Moon: Rahu North Node or Ketu South Node, the house and sign in the Vedic Cart needs to be taken into account. The western chart will depict the psychological implications.
Uranus conjunct the South Node Ketu is the person who came from a Uranian past life: maverick, eccentric, individualist, who may reply on the wisdom from the past and have channelling abilities and can be a mystic now. But on a lower level of manifestation, this individual is scattered and erratic.
North Node Rahu conjunct Uranus is he gadget lover. But at the higher manifestation this is the individual who is attuned to collective forces, creative, shocking or revolutionary.
8. Planets square the Nodes:
If you have Uranus square Nodes: look for past life effects such that the person now is driven by the need to find liberty from excessive, blocking demeaning past life conditioning. Crises in individuation are created.
This is a past life trauma indicator: analyse Uranus by sign, house and aspect.
Past life fear blocks individuation or proper authentic self-expression.
Vedic astrology provides incarnational life purpose statement from study of the nodes in your birth chart and planets aspecting them
Western astrology also provides a definition of the effects of the nodal axis, but the definition of western astrology is more a psychological statement.
9. Uranus in Synastry:

Freedom, impersonality, aloofness.
