At the beginning of this year, we discussed our “Big Three,” our sun signs, our moon signs, and our ascendant signs. Last month we talked about our inner planet signs, Mercury, Venus, and Mars. This month we are discussing our outer planet signs. Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto (yes, even Pluto) are commonly referred to as the outer planets. Today, we are going to discuss what our Uranus placements mean. If you do not know what your Uranus placement is, you can calculate it here.
Uranus is named after the Greek primordial deity of the sky. The god may be primordial, but the planet rules over our innovation and rebellion. Uranus also governs how we enact change. You could say that Uranus is the planet of evolution and revolution. Read on to find out how our Uranus placements affect how we handle more mature situations.
Also, I promise I won’t make any immature jokes about the pronunciation of Uranus… well, maybe just one.
People with their Uranus sign in Aries are driven by their need for personal independence. They seek freedom from the situations that stifle their innovation and hold them down.

People with their Uranus sign in Taurus are driven by their need for worldly comfort. They seek out anything that can bring them financial and emotional security.
