The Effect of Uranus in Your Chart is...

Make a note to find out where Uranus stands in your birth chart, so you can have an idea of your own creativity and ability to express yourself.

The position of Uranus in your chart will show if you’re inventive, offbeat or into odd ideas.

If Uranus is prominent in your birth chart your likely to be independent and ingenious.

You’ll dress in your own style.

People may comment on how they like you're "out-there" point of view.

You may also have psychic abilities.

Uranus delegates what your genius is, where you'll meet with strange luck, is it at work? Travel? In relationships? Uranus will tell you.

People strongly influenced by Uranus influence in their charts are innovators, reformists and ground breakers.

On the minus side:

Uranus inclines a person to eccentric behavior, disorderly conduct, foolish actions, and perversion. All this could brand a person hard to get along with because they become abrupt, rebellious, and have mood swings.

Having said all of the above there is a special not on Uranus:

When a person arrives at age 42, the half cycle point of Uranus, contingent on the acceleration of Uranus's orbit in a person’s chart), a person goes through an key life crisis.

Actually, this can start as early as 38yrs old. As a matter of fact, what is happening is that Uranus contradicts the place it adopted in the natal chart at birth.

This is what today we call "the midlife crisis". The ancient astrologers said that this crisis will occur in everyone's chart in the years noted and that this "crisis" aids in elucidating our goals and fortify our intention and autonomy.

Uranus's glyph is a cross sitting on top of a circle and two half curves on either end of the cross.

The cross is substance, and on either side are crescents, which stand for the spirit and openness.

Uranus remains in a sign for 7 years and takes 84 years to travel through the zodiac. Uranus governs Aquarius.
