Uranus in Pisces

Uranus is all about innovating and challenging and updating the status quo.  It overhauls or even breaks systems, processes, traditions, and laws (the things of Saturn).  Uranus is associated with electricity and electronic communication, inventions, shocking changes in paradigms, but most of all, it’s about rebuking the old systems and renovating for the new.

People with strong Uranus energy in their chart are particularly forward-thinking and innovative (or unstable) in their thought processes and communication.  The Sign and House in which Uranus resides point to how one wants to rebel against and “update” whichever themes the Sign and House represent.

Uranus in Pisces Meaning

Natives of Uranus in Pisces are known for their sensitivity and empathy, which can make them highly attuned to the emotions and needs of others. They may have a natural ability to read a room and be sought out for advice and counsel. These individuals may also have a strong interest in spirituality and the occult and may be drawn to careers in fields such as metaphysics, healing, and public relations, where they can use their gifts to help others.

Many Uranus in Pisces individuals are, or will be known for their creativity (Pisces) and innovation in electronic communications (Uranus).

Those with Uranus in Pisces may feel a desire to break through inhibitions or taboos related to topics such as mental and emotional health, non-material values, service, devotion, and compassion. They may be more open to exploring alternative or unconventional approaches to these topics and may resist the constraints of traditional norms and expectations in expressing feelings on a grand scale. They may also be logical and realistic when the situation calls for it and are able to see how humanity is evolving from a larger perspective.

These individuals may also struggle with their especially idealistic nature and a tendency towards disappointment when reality does not meet their expectations. They may become bitter and jaded and may retreat into their own heads when they feel overwhelmed or let down. They may also struggle with laziness and a tendency towards escapism through unhealthy behaviors such as drug or alcohol abuse, overspending, or compulsive behaviors. It is important for these individuals to work on maintaining a balance between giving and receiving, and to develop healthy boundaries in their relationships and career. They may benefit from supportive relationships with optimistic, grounded partners who can help them reflect on their expectations and teach them a better balance.

Uranus takes approximately seven years to transit through a sign; 84 years to go around the Sun.  Unless your Uranus is near a sign cusp, anyone within 2-5 years of your age is likely to have Uranus in the same Sign. 

The noticeable differences in how Uranus is expressed by someone are due to the house placement and the number of aspects that Uranus makes with the other planets in one’s chart, especially the faster-moving personal planets (Sun, Moon, Mars, Venus).  The more aspects (angles) made with other planets in your makeup, the more strength it has, and the more prominently your Uranian energy is expressed. 

In Astrology, the outer planets are often seen as having a “hierarchy” or spiritual evolution over the inner planets, and are considered as the higher octave of certain inner “personal” planets.  Uranus is considered to be the higher octave of Mercury because it expands on the themes and energies associated with Mercury.  Mercury is associated with communication, thinking, and the exchange of information, while Uranus takes these things to the next level and integrates the thought processes and communicative action of Mercury into a cause that tends to benefit all of humanity.

So, in a sense, Uranus takes the qualities of Mercury and expands on them, adding a broader, more universal perspective and points to where the desire for progress and evolution are met with the least resistance according to the associations of the Sign in which Uranus resides.
