Uranus in the Houses: Find Your Freedom

Both Jupiter and Uranus are what I would call the “freedom planets” of the birth chart. It’s in the houses where one’s Jupiter and Uranus fall that you will feel the most liberated. But, while Jupiter’s form of freedom sends you on an adventure and makes everything a grand discovery, Uranus’ version of freedom is more about freedom of thought, instead of freedom of action. It’s in your Uranus house that you can fully detach from expectations and develop your own independent-minded ideas about the concerns of that house. Because of this, you will not be very concerned with what other people think in regards to the life area of that house.

I keep talking about the house because Uranus is a distant outer planet, along with Neptune and Pluto. While Jupiter and Saturn are intermediate outer planets, meaning that the sign is going to be felt as personally as the house, there is nothing personal about the sign that Uranus is in. It stays in that sign for seven years, so it’s not going to be a unique placement. At the same time, Uranus’ house placement is going to be experienced on a very personal level for you and can help you experience the uniqueness of this planet. And Uranus loves its uniqueness! Also, of course, you’re going to have to consider aspects because this is how Uranus will express itself in your life. But, the house placement is where it’s going to express itself.

It will end up turning everything upside down in this house’s domain, in order for you to find that free-thinking sensibility here. Uranus has zero expectations and you are supposed to have no expectations when it comes to your Uranus house’s principles. In this regard, you will be able to rebel against other people’s expectations of you in this life area. More of the focus will be placed on how you can use the brilliance that you experience here in order to benefit other people. Everyone is capable of a certain brilliance: thinking outside the box, coming up with something new, defying norms and regulations for the sake of a greater ideal. And it’s through your Uranus’ house that you can bring your inner genius to life. It’s also where anything can happen and where there is no such thing as a dull moment. 

Uranus in the 1st House
Behavioral freedom. Do what you want and when you want to do it. You must resist the expectations of people within just about any given situation. This also means that you must have zero expectations when it comes to life itself. Just live and let live. Experiment and see what happens. Your role in life is of the livewire, capable of doing anything and at anytime.

Uranus in the 2nd House
Financial freedom. Make your own money in the way you want to make it. Do not give into pressures to try and hold down a predictable way of making income. Find experimental, unique ways to earn money and also stay detached from a boring obsession with the material. This attitude will manifest a greater cash flow in your life, boosting your overall pleasure and self-esteem.

Uranus in the 3rd House
Intellectual freedom. You are truly being pushed to think for yourself and in an unusual manner. Your mind can feel like it’s undergoing an endless brainstorm, filling you with all sorts of exciting ideas. Share these ideas openly with others, even if they think they’re weird, shocking, or unacceptable. Be that independent thinker; the kind of conversationalist who electrifies others.

Uranus in the 4th House
Private freedom. You are only going to feel safe and supported when your personal space is turned upside down. Home is not home for you unless things are quite eccentric and crazy. But, there is a very comfortable rhythm to this madness and you thrive on it, even if it unnerves your loved ones. Behind closed doors, you are a maverick and often feel like the odd one out in your family.

Uranus in the 5th House
Creative freedom. When you live in the moment, you completely throw the rule book out the window. Your creative energy is quite rebellious and unconventional. You possess a detached sort of passion that can stand back and coolly observe the drama of life unfold, all while still getting heatedly involved. You’re very hot-and-cold in matters of the heart, needing a lot of loving space.

Uranus in the 6th House
Constructive freedom. You want to get things done in your own unusual way, experimenting with various routines. There is a method to your madness or a madness to your method, which can confuse others. You may seem to “wing it” even when you’re really calculated or vice versa. You will rebel against others’ advice unless it’s truly practical and has been tested as being so by you.

Uranus in the 7th House
Relational freedom. In your personal connections with other people, you do not want to be controlled or suffocated. You are looking for a real give-and-take of independence and tolerance in love and friendship. You make for a rather eccentric companion and are attracted to eccentric companions. The approval of others in terms of your friends and lovers means nothing to you.

Uranus in the 8th House
Profound freedom. When you go deep with someone or with yourself, you do not judge whatever is exposed. This makes you very tolerant when being intimate or introspective. But, you might sometimes thrive on the chaos of the darkness. You may remain detached and nonchalant about your emotional issues. But, you are also brilliantly capable of being your own therapist.

Uranus in the 9th House
Philosophical freedom. You must develop a moral compass that is not reliant on anyone else’s issues. You can rebel against the convictions of others by insisting on your own. It’s liberating and inspiring for you to not have to follow a typical path in life. You are on your own unpredictable journey, so you must become this explorer who welcomes the weirdness around the corner.

Uranus in the 10th House
Professional freedom. It is your mission to make a living and a calling out of being a free spirit. You have to pursue the goals in life that you really think are worthwhile, instead of surrendering to society’s expectations, building your reputation as a nonconformist. Career success will be highly unexpected, in its coming and going. Your ideal profession feels like an endless experiment.

Uranus in the 11th House
Universal freedom. You are not just freeing yourself but freeing everyone around you. By releasing all expectations, you’re not only welcoming the random, unusual elements of life your way but giving others free reign to be individuals. This makes you a full-on individual in all of your quirkiness. Yet, you are an excellent collaborator, with a very progressive, brilliant view of the big picture.

Uranus in the 12th House
Spiritual freedom. You must detach from conventional expectations of humanity and the Higher Power, understanding how weird we all can be and how unpredictable the Universe is. Your own eccentricities work in mysterious ways, through a genius insight into alternative forms of spirituality, wild and erratic fantasies/dreams, and/or artistic talents that are from another planet.


  1. Uranus in the first house here! As a capricorn rising I have a lot of expectations when it comes to life but you're right I shouldn't. I think I'll keep what you wrote as a mantra... (also have Neptune conjunct ASC)

    1. Understood. ;) Your Uranus is in harmony so, things are happening as they should. So, don't fret. Easy-breezy methodical plodding. :)

  2. Ruler in debility by Cadent. Goes for anyone.

  3. Uranus in the first house here! As a capricorn rising I have a lot of expectations when it comes to life but you're right I shouldn't. I think I'll keep what you wrote as a mantra... (also have Neptune conjunct ASC)

  4. Jupiter AND Uranus in the 6th house and Uranus conjuncts descendant. I definitely prefer a sense of freedom when it comes to the daily grind. Schedules, chores, lists get on my nerves!!! Lol

  5. Great post, Love Uranus energy in people! so exciting and fun. My Uranus is in the 4th house..so i moves a lot as a kid and now i dream of having a big crazy house that is ful of different people who make art as I sit there by a pool and enjoy the creative flow around me. That being said this is strong conflict with all my Earth energy and desires...

  6. Uranus in Scorpio/8th here. I also have an Aquarius Mercury trine Pluto, and apparently I just finished a Uranus-opp-Pluto transit last week, so I guess this planet combo is on my mind right now! (I'd love to see a Uranus in 8th article some day, I don't think you've done one yet?) I wouldn't say I'm totally at ease in the 8th house, but I've always felt a strong need to understand the stuff nobody wants to talk about - and usually it's been motivated by my own anxiety. It's obvious to me that everybody has their issues and people are often most destructive when deep in denial. I'm not detached about my emotional issues at all, haha (I wish), but I do consider them essential to grapple with. It's the only way I've ever been able to leave any of my fears behind. So ... yeah, I do the self-therapy thing. A lot. :P

  7. Having both Uranus and Jupiter in Aquarius in the same house (6th) makes me relate even more with it.

  8. I have Uranus conjunct north node, Quaoar and Juno in 12th house of scorpio in a grand water Trine to Ac and MC. Your description is very accurate.

  9. Hi i really loved your post but my South node which is cancer is in my midheaven.
    And my NN which is capricorn is in my 4 th house
    My sun is in pisces, however my moon , murcury and venus are in aries and they are placed in my 7th house.
    Can u explain about my placements please ? Thank you

  10. Uranus conjunct Neptune in the 10th house. These two are square mercury and jupiter. They are also sextile moon and trine Venus. They also square the ascendant. Im sooo non-comformist in almost every area of life. Its a gift but a struggle. I feel like I can't fit in most of the time. Uranus also squares the Sun. I think this energy causes lots of tension too. Im very well known for my crazy hairstyles and dress
