Uranus and the Vision of Human Potential

Revolution was the order of the day when Uranus burst forth unexpectedly into our consciousness, breaking apart our idea of a neat and tidy Saturn-boundaried solar system that had been our known universe for centuries. What is it about this maverick that is a catalyst for change, drives the pursuit of freedom, and pushes for the evolution of consciousness? To help us understand the essence of this powerful archetypal figure and how it operates in the horoscope we explore Uranus in depth – both in what it’s discovery meant to humankind and in our personal lives – and also see how a Uranus transit reflects times in our lives when we move out of very stuck, limiting situations to something freer, whether we consciously instigate it or not. We also look at the planet through the mythic figures associated with Uranus and give examples of well-known Promethean figures who embody this archetype so well.
