Uranus as an Indicator for an Astrologer

Your natal chart gives clues as to the type of astrologer you are likely to be. Modern astrologers take Uranus, as the ruler of our craft and the traditional ruler is Mercury.

  • During Uranus transits to sensitive planets and chart points in your natal chart external changes may occur to alter your life path.
  • When you experience secondary progressions to Uranus from planets and chart points it may be a time when internal changes are likely to develop to alter your karmic direction.

The above two points, of transits and secondary progressions to your natal chart taht include Uranus, can suggest times in your life when astrology will begin to loom large.

The more forecast triggers that happen at once, the more likely it will be.


As the modern ruler of astrology and astrologers Uranus is a strong indicator for an astrologer.

If Uranus is conjoined your Ascendant, Sun, Midheaven or Mercury or, if Uranus is the morning planet where it suggests your vocation these are stron indicators for an Astrologer.

There are many instances where Uranus aspects the morning planet in well-known astrologer’s charts.

All natal aspects to your Uranus will modify the type of astrologer you are likely to become. Uranus conjunctions are the strongest indicators.

When your natal Uranus is stimulated by progressions from the Sun, Mercury, the Ascendant or Midheaven an interest in astrology will probably develop.

Transiting Uranus Aspects to Mercury

The traditional ruler of astrology and astrologers is Mercury the planet of information gathering and dispersal and of scribing the events of the day. When your natal Mercury receives aspects from transiting Uranus astrology becomes an interest.


As the philosopher and teacher, Jupiter often conjoins, squares or opposes the Sun or Uranus in an astrologer’s natal chart. It also frequently contacts Mercury, the Ascendant or Midheaven.


Aspects to Jupiter

When natal Jupiter is stimulated by transiting Uranus or progressed Mercury it may spark an interest and you will seek astrological knowledge

Uranus’ Sign: Aquarius on Angles

Aquarius on the first house cusp shows a personal interest in astrology. On the Midheaven the water bearer indicates that a business can be made from astrology.

When your secondary progressed or solar arc directed ascendant or Midheaven enters Aquarius the focus of your life will shift. This change alone will not confirm astrology, but it will if supported by other indicators.


Uranus as a Career Indicator for an Astrologer

Many factors contribute to an interest in astrology. If you take your passion for astrology a step further, it makes sense to look at the career indicators for an astrologer in your chart. This can guide you towards fulfilling the potential shown by your natal placements.

If you live in tune with your natal chart, you are more likely to be satisfied with your life and you can more readily be the type of astrologer your chart suggests. This is in contrast to striving to be an astrologer which you think you should be, by attempting to emulate those around you.

Any planet in aspect to Uranus suggests how you do (and can) use Uranus, and therefore astrology, in your life.

Uranus’ Direction

in a natal chart Uranus is either direct, stationary or retrograde.

Uranus Direct

When Uranus is direct it is good for an astrology practice and the development of it as a part of your life. You can move forward at a regular and steady pace. You will gain and grow an astrology business on a steady trajectory throughout your life. Perhaps you will add to your abilities and take further courses yourself to develop a deeper astrology knowledge.

Uranus Stationary

Stationary Definition

A stationary planet is any planet which is within 0°10′ orb of the actual station position. Solar Fire will flag stationary planets with an “S” in the chart.

Stationary Retrograde or Direct

When Uranus is stationary in the natal chart you need to check if it is about to go direct or retrograde. Uranus in this position offers a strong presence for astrology where you really spend time to fully know your craft before being able to move on which usually happens later in life.

Uranus Retrograde

If Uranus is retrograde in your natal chart it suggests a slower or longer lead-up time to get going in a professional astrological career. This placement of Uranus inclines you to review and ponder your basic knowledge base (planets, signs, houses and aspects) for longer, before you feel confident. It is almost as if you are hesitant to go professional. If this is the case, it is best for you to take formal classes in astrology and gain astrological certification, which will provide you with the confidence to move up a level.
