I thought that it would be interesting to follow Uranus' path through the signs since 1968 to give you an idea of what kind of energy Uranus has. Uranus is Revolutionary....unexpected energy, brand NEW energy. Realizations. Awakenings. Uranus speaks to that part inside us that desires to be FREE.
1968 to 1974: Uranus is in Libra. The Peace movement was born; equality and human rights were the social focus. (Libra is all about Harmony)
1975 to 1980: Uranus moves into Scorpio. The Sexual Revolution exploded. (Scorpio rules sex and intimacy)
1981 to 1987: Uranus moves into Sagittarius. The New Age Movement took off. (Sagittarius is very idealistic and seeks to expand his mind, philosophize)
1988 to 1994: Uranus moves into Capricorn. A period of turmoil and political revolution and the demise of communism. (Capricorn/Saturn represents the Structure that we and governments have built up. The Berlin Wall coming down is a perfect symbol for Uranus in Capricorn)
1995 to 2002: Uranus moves into Aquarius. The internet became a global phenomenon. (Uranus rules Aquarius, naturally, so when combined it is super-Uranian energy! Which rules technology, astrology, globalization. Didn't everyone get a computer within these years? Astrology became more mainstream too)
March 11th, 2003 to 2011: Uranus moves into Pisces. Spiritual Revolution! Being involved in the 'other worldly' aspects of Pisces will become normal. Spirituality, 'other worlds', other beings, psychic phenomenon, something unexpected happens in the world of organized religion, new modern music (who else has gone out and bought NEW music lately?). The veil thins!
