The Uranus glyph is made up of two crescents of receptivity on either side of the cross of matter,which is on top of the circle of spirit.
The two crescents indicate left brain and right brain perceptions, rapid intuition and antennas or radars picking up signals from far and wide.
This information is grounded through the cross of matter to bring a new refocused energy to the circle of spirit. The glyph also resembles the letter H, the initial for Herschel, the discoverer of Uranus.
Uranus was discovered on 13 March 1781. It is the most eccentric planet in the solar system because of its unconventional orbit. Rotating on its side, it’s tilted at a 97 degree angle, giving it peculiar seasons, long cycles of darkness then sunlight, and a severe energy imbalance causing disturbing 720 km per hr winds. Through a telescope, Uranus appears as a pale blue-green elliptical disk.
Diameter: 51,118 km Distance from Sun: 2876 million km Rotation: 17 hours Orbital period: 84 years Atmosphere: Hydrogen, helium, methane
Discovery and Naming
Discovered by William Herschel 13th March 1781
First planet to be discovered with a telescope
At first thought to be a comet,
Circular orbit, eccentric ellipsis
Named Georgium Sidus, after the King
Bode (Bodes law) chose Uranus, the Latinized version of the Greek god of the sky god Ouranos.
Bode argued that just as Saturn was the father of Jupiter, the new planet should be named after the father of Saturn.
In 1789, Bode’s Royal Academy colleague Martin Klaproth named his newly discovered element “uranium” in support of Bode’s choice.
Ultimately, Bode’s suggestion became the most widely used, and became universal in 1850 when HM Nautical Almanac Office, the final holdout, switched from using Georgium Sidus to Uranus.

The awakener, illuminator, rebel, revolutionary, radical
Destroyer of old concepts, ideologies and structures
The unique, unconventional, unorthodox, individuality awakening to higher consciousness, the sixth sense, inspiration

Enlightening moments, breakthrough
Uranus ignites people of the same mind, idea, purpose
Uranus’ energy is sudden, unexpected, awakening, invigorating, inspiring, electric, destructive, disruptive and spasmodic.
Uranus represents change, freedom and rebellion, plus the need to break with tradition in order to improve on the past.
Uranus symbolises the original and innovative rebel, full of new ideas and opinions who awakens and seeks new possibilities.
Uranus challenges us to stand up and create the change necessary in our lives; to be our unique selves, no matter how different, unacknowledged or strange this may be.
Uranus leads us along the road less travelled, while simultaneously alienating and liberating us from authority.
Uranus represents the principal of creative freedom, individualism and liberation –thePromethean impulse to free humanity by stealing fire from the gods.
Uranus is the agent of change, adaptation and the unexpected (through surprises or shocks), and brings breakthroughs on physical, emotional, intellectual, spiritual or psychological levels.
Uranus is like lightning – connected to the SKY God with a thunderbolt – also Zeus/Jupiter/Thor
Lightning is a massive electrostatic discharge between electrically charged regions within clouds, or between a cloud and the Earth’s surface.
The charged regions within the temporarily equalize themselves through a lightning flash, commonly referred to as a strike if it hits an object on the ground.
Uranus takes 84 years to transit an astrological chart.
It has an even orbit, therefore major transit points occur at the same ages for all.
At 21 years we experience the Uranus square
42 years a Uranus opposition
84 the Uranus return
Uranus is retrograde for 5 months of the year.
