Uranus in Libra

Uranus in Libra

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, 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 Libra Meaning

With Uranus in Libra, you are most progressive and interested in improving, innovating, and revamping or rebelling against traditions and systems involving all of the themes of Libra: personal relationships and relating in general, justice, equality, negotiations, the arts, and design.

You may believe in breaking through some of the inhibitions or taboos related to social values and conventions, meeting others halfway, and in how we get along with one another.

Natives of this generation are exceptionally talented at bringing objectivity to a situation and mediating or bringing people of different backgrounds to an agreement or understanding.

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.
