Uranus and Its Importance to Astrology

In astrology, it's imperative to know the meaning of the planets and their power over our destiny. Among them is Uranus. Known as the planet of evolution, Uranus is of paramount when it comes to your birth chart. Want to know more about the “Bull’s Eye” planet? Our very own astrologer, Susan Taylor, spills the secrets on the third biggest planet, including its symbolism, its influence and its mythology!

Uranus in Astronomy: The Giant Ice Planet

Sitting 2.87 billion kilometers from the Sun, Uranus is the third furthest away- only bettered by Neptune and Pluto. As a consequence, it’s no surprise that its atmosphere is the coldest of all the planets (-370°F/-218°C). Uranus is a gaseous planet and consists mainly of hydrogen and helium. Considering its size, Uranus turns on itself incredibly quickly, with days lasting only 17 hours. In spite of this, it takes around 84 years to complete a singular orbit of the sun!

Uranus' reputation in Mythology: God of the Skies

According to Greek mythology, Uranus is the ruler of all and god of the heavens. With his wife (who also happened to be his mother) Gaia, the Greek goddess of all life, he had many children. His offspring were gods, titans, and monstrous beings, all gifted with unimaginable abilities such as the power to trigger volcanic eruptions and earthquakes.

Uranus was overthrown by his children following an attempt to devour them all. He successfully destroyed several of his heirs, but his son Jupiter overpowered him and forced him to regurgitate the children that he had eaten. As a result, he lost his power, and control of the world was divided between his sons, Jupiter, Neptune, and Pluto.
