When revolutionary Uranus enters the first sign of the zodiac, Aries, it’s a major signal for collective change. This shocking planet tends to shake the world with surprising events and individual breakthroughs. Uranus’s time in Aries helps us step into a new era of human history in which problems and solutions can break out with equal rapidity and in equally unexpected ways.
Aries is the sign of the individual and independent Uranus’ sojourn in this sign marks the next major changes in personal identity. We not only get to wake up and remember who we think we are, we’ll have the guts to live our lives more authentically then we ever imagined.
When Uranus is in Aries
Radical ideas about our future on this planet could emerge during Uranus in Aries, causing us to break away from the old models of biological evolution and religious explanations for our origins. This is a period when humanity could reinvent itself with major revisions in our understanding of the self and our relationships to one another. A brave new world could rise from the sea of the collective unconscious to awaken the next stage of human development.
During Uranus’ time in Aries, the field of psychology could make sudden leaps with the reintroduction of psychedelic therapies, while rapid advances in brain research may redefine the very notion of self. The relationship between humans and technology could also grow closer, continuing to blur the lines between these two areas. This transit could also stimulate nervous systems and simultaneously awakens a newfound sense of genius that initiates millions of brilliant ideas.
When Uranus tours Aries, we’ll all receive a cosmic jolt back to ourselves. We might have lost our true identities somewhere along the way or, for whatever reason, decided to shove it in a corner. Uranus in Aries will change that, encouraging us to make a radical change with the self and embrace whatever it is about our energy that reflects an independent spirit and higher mind (Uranus rules the higher mind).
However, this desire for personal revolution could make things dicey during Uranus’ transit through Aries. We may have little tolerance for anyone who threatens to step on the toes of our identities. We may feel impatient or even angry at the slightest indication of someone or something impeding our ability to express our pioneering spirit. We should embrace this opportunity to live more authentically, while also staying mindful of our tendency towards selfishness.
Uranus Retrograde in Aries
Uranus Retrograde is about getting real, facing our fears, and getting rid of whatever it is that no longer works for us in an effort to become who we want (or who we were meant) to be. Uranus Retrograde in Aries is like being given a cosmic nudge to do our own thing and express our individuality. If we’ve been feeling restricted in a certain area of our lives, this retrograde period will fuel our desire to rebel.
During Uranus Retrograde in Aries, we may each ask ourselves: Is my relationship holding me back? Is my current job preventing me from the kind of success I really want? Have others’ opinions stopped me from moving forward with an aspiration? Uranus Retrograde in Aries will shake things up, encouraging us to make changes in any areas of our lives that aren’t personally fulfilling.
If you were born with Uranus in Aries
You are a true trailblazer! Uranus is the sign of revolutionary vision, and Aries is the natural born leader of the zodiac. So when this planet and sign sync up in your birth chart, it gives you the ability to boldly go where nobody has dared go before. You’re the kind of person who readily embraces new concepts and situations.
With Aries’ strong desire to push forward and Uranus being the planet of radical change and technology, you could be someone who has helped pioneer breakthroughs in computing, medical science, aerospace technology, and other similar advancements. Suffice it to say, you could be someone who helps sparks a technological renaissance!
The downside to this love of moving in new directions is that you could love it a little too much. Impulsiveness is your Achille’s heel, causing you to move forward with something before determining if it’s a good idea. Just remember to look before you leap, so you can avoid potential headaches and consequences down the road.
All that we are is the result of what we have thought. If a man speaks or acts with an evil thought, pain follows him. If a man speaks or acts with a pure thought, happiness follows him, like a shadow that never leaves him.

Like I am going to remember to ask tomorrow, HA!
