Uranus, discovered in 1781, has a nature similar to Mercury in its nervous and mental impact. but is much more powerful, violent, fanatical, and harder to handle for the physical body.
Uranus represents the freedom urge. It is the planet of extremes and sudden change. It is a force which destroys the old to allow room for the new. Uranus destroys the constricting influence and crystallization's of Saturn. It displaces and overthrows the established attitudes which have outlived their usefulness. The old must be destroyed before the new can come, but we are often fearful of new, unknown ways and reluctant to let go. Uranus makes us let go. It shakes us loose!
The nature of Uranus has an exciting, uprooting and awakening effect. It brings disruption, anarchy, rebellion, revolution, freedom, individualism, altruism, originality, invention, experimentation, instability, erratic action and detachment. It is related to intuitive knowledge.
The symbol of Uranus, show the cross of matter confined at the sides, being forced up from t he bottom circle of Spirit.
