Astronomy: Uranus was the first new planet to be discovered in over 2000 years! When astronomers saw that it "rolls around the Sun", i.e. that it's North Pole is horizontal rather than vertical, they were astonished. Astrologers immediately realized that this planet ruled the unusual. Uranus takes 84 years to circle the Sun, with 7 years (itch) in each sign of the zodiac.

The Gifts of the Uranus: Uranus gives us our uniqueness, our own "claims to fame". The value of each of our own perspectives, feelings, and insights is reflected in Uranus' actions. Uranus gives us the freedoms: to think, to speak, to create uniquely, and to act as ourselves and the desire to be ourselves. Our ability to contact the Universal Mind, to tap into vast realms of consciousness and insight are a great gift of Uranus.

The lessons Uranus has to learn: Freedom lies on the other side of discipline. To institute changes that last, one often has to work within the system instead of against it. Too much freedom leads to isolation, bias, dissociation; learn to balance independence with connectedness. Leading others' minds or hearts towards a goal needs to be done at a pace they can absorb and digest.

The Eleventh House

Eastern Hemisphere: self-determining Ruler: Saturn and Uranus
Scope: Last 3rd: public and group space Mode: Succendent: reactive, completing
Upper Hemisphere: objective, collective Axis: groups & friends vs. family & lovers

The Eleventh House is where we meet the social collective: groups, the media, friendships, standards of social behavior, and our personal and shared future.
