Uranus in the 10th House



Alright, we are finally finished with the Uranus in the houses series. The final article is Uranus in the 10th House. What happens when you have this placement in your birth chart? If Uranus is the place where things do not unfold normally or predictably for you, it’s safe to say, then, that there is nothing “normal” or predictable about your public and professional life. The 10th House symbolizes our career, public image, and reputation. It’s how we “make it” in society, in one way or another. But, with Uranus in the 10th House, your way of becoming somebody is quite unorthodox, probably because you are rather detached from concerns of being somebody and impressing the world.

We are quite inconsistent regarding the concerns of the house that our Uranus falls in. Sometimes we care about these things and sometimes we don’t. Having a 10th House Uranus, then, means that you can be rather on and off in regards to your life goals. Your ambition is expressed in a low-key fashion that isn’t too attached to success. At times, you might not seem to care about success in the ways that most people do. This is the way that you will end up feeling differently than other people and possibly misunderstood. The truth is that there is no one definition of success. We are all on our own paths and we all have our own benchmarks of success. Uranus in the 10th indicates that your benchmark for success is outside of the norm and this is why it can be hard for you to adjust to the expectations and standards of society.

People with Uranus in the 10th have their own expectations of themselves in terms of their goals in life. Your attitude toward achievement can be far more nonchalant or liberated than other people’s. Maybe you just see no need to beat yourself up over perceived failures or to be a rigid perfectionist in pursuit of greatness. Maybe you just aren’t interested in accomplishing what everyone else is accomplishing, preventing yourself from getting caught up in comparisons between your career and someone else’s. It is also very likely that this placement has pushed you to develop certain “theories” that will help you get ahead in the world. These ideas will usually involve being aware of the big picture of what’s happening and remembering to take nothing personally on your path toward success. This will help you see your professional situations differently and in a way that actually brings you greater success than you originally expected.

The 10th House shows us the lessons that we learn on our way toward achievement. With Uranus in the 10th, you will inevitably learn to have no expectations. Situations will occur in your professional life that challenge you to take preconceived notions of “getting somewhere” and throw them out the window. The more that you do, the more you will succeed. But, the more you have certain expectations and work really hard to try and make them happen, the less you will succeed. It is a case of “less is more”, showing that if you don’t try so hard and don’t demand a specific vision of success, then you will get much further in life. The randomness and suddenness of Uranus will teach you that achieving something can be akin to lightning striking. You just never know when and how it will happen. 



Because of this, you will feel quite removed from the desperate rat race that most other people get wrapped up in with the intent of getting ahead. While they’re busy obsessing over what move to make next, you may feel like there are just much better things to concern yourself with. So, there is a casualness and a calm to Uranus in the 10th House people when it comes to what they do with their lives or want to do with their lives. It’s probably been that way for you since you were growing up, as that inevitable question of “what do you want to be when you grow up” was answered with either an attitude that showed that you happily did not care or that you already knew but it really wasn’t a big deal. That same mentality exists in adulthood, as the 10th House Uranus person would be just as content running a bank, being famous, or working in a restaurant.

Unless Mars or Pluto are in your 10th or in aspect to your Midheaven, you probably don’t care about finding your passion, in terms of career. You are more so about finding your experiment. You will feel most professionally fulfilled doing something that is like an ongoing project. In fact, you regard your career like an ongoing project, tinkering and toying with lots of different ideas. It’s why you can picture yourself doing lots of different things and aren’t rigidly attached to one career trajectory. The way you see it, you never know what’s going to happen and what one thing will lead to. Uranus in the 10th House individuals do have strikingly unpredictable professional lives because of it, whether that means changing your career overnight or randomly falling into an amazing business opportunity or becoming wildly successful and renowned out of nowhere.

This is a placement that can make a person seem like an overnight success. One day, things are going along one track in your professional life. Then, that one amazing breakthrough moment occurs and everything completely changes. Since the 10th House is more about image and public perception, it can just be the case that it seems like you became a huge deal overnight. Still, even if you spent years toiling away at it before you made it, you just have a way of rocketing toward a level or form of success that is quite extraordinary, especially since you never expected it. The general rule of Uranus in the 10th is that whatever you don’t expect whatsoever to happen in your career will certainly happen. And this can apply just as much to disastrous or chaotic situations in your professional life as it does with big breaks and major recognition.

In fact, your work life may feel as if it is constantly in this state of chaos and confusion. How you deal with this can depend on the rest of the chart. Some 10th House Uranus individuals find themselves truly exhausted by all of the unpredictable twists and turns that happen on the job, particularly if Uranus has any squares or oppositions to it. It’s a Murphy’s Law thing where whatever can go wrong at work does go wrong for you, leading you to not wait until you can go home and get a break from all of the insanity. The crazy thing is that it seems as if the insanity follows you. If you find yourself in a work environment that is just plain nuts and then you end up in a new job, hoping it’s different, and it’s also just as nuts there, the problem may be you. Not necessarily that you’re causing the commotion (although you definitely can) but that you just somehow need a topsy-turvy work life and put yourself in these situations.

The 10th House does test us and push us to rise to the occasion of whatever is in that house. With Uranus in the 10th, you have to step up to the plate in regards to thriving amidst chaos. So, you’ll find that your working environment will just get crazier and crazier until you can roll with the punches. For some, this can mean fatefully ending up with bosses or authority figures who are kind of maddening. You will probably have at least one boss throughout your professional life who can’t be pinned down easily and who is rather eccentric and inconsistent; definitely not a traditionally buttoned-up and predictable authority figure. Uranus in the 10th House actually shows that you have always been driven mad by authorities, regarding them as strange creatures who aren’t very reliable. If there are some difficult feelings tied up in that, you will probably have to come head-to-head with an authority who is all over the place in order to resolve that conflict.

In resolving it, you will be able to assume authority yourself in this unorthodox fashion. You inevitably make for a boss who is not the traditional boss. Uranus in the 10th puts you in professional situations where rules were meant to be broken. Usually, you have to find yourself working under a boss who doesn’t care that much about structure or the conventional chain of command. Once you thrive in such an environment and see that it’s not so bad and can actually be very motivating, you will take on this mentality when you become a boss yourself. Whether you are being the boss of yourself or over other people, this placement shows that you have a knack for turning the workplace on its head. You flip conventional expectations in one way or another, which does make you an unpredictable boss. But, there is a sense of democracy you insist on in the workplace and it’s something that will make your co-workers feel like equals and even friends.

There will be a certain brilliance to you that you become wildly recognized for. It doesn’t necessarily have to be intellectual brilliance, although it can be because Uranus in the 10th can cause the public to be impressed with your original, bright mind. But, it’s more so the fact that you go about what you do in such a unique, inventive, and smart way. Many with this placement become known for breaking away from the traditional manner of going about their profession. This can mean how you actually do your job but also how you handle or view the job title. You stand out as being quite an anomaly in your field, in some way or another, and could actually enjoy a rather unprecedented professional position or set of accomplishments. So, you gain respect from the world at large just because they will think that there is just something “different” about you and it gives you the originality required to go far. 



Actually, many 10th House Uranus individuals can become known as different to the degree where they have this image as someone from another planet. There is this element to your public persona that is rather out-of-this-world and it can come off as flat-out unusual and weird to some people. The thing that may annoy you, though, is that you don’t really see yourself as being that odd. The 10th House differs from the 1st in that the 1st does tell you what you actually think about yourself. But, since the 10th House represents your reputation, this influence shows what gets projected on to you by the world at large, regardless of it if you think this about yourself or not. As a result, the 10th/Midheaven can be tricky to relate to because while it is a genuine part of us, it’s a part of us that easily gets exaggerated or misconstrued. So, with Uranus in the 10th, you may think that people out in the world treat you as if you are some alien from outer space to be studied when you really don’t feel that remarkable. But, of course, that, in and of itself, is rather alienating.

This is one reason why Uranus in the 10th House individuals learn to just not care what society thinks about them. Again, you have your own unique benchmark for success and self-respect. So, you aren’t interested in begging the world for their approval. But, the irony is, of course, that the more you play it “too cool for school”, the more you will earn the support and acceptance from those in your public sphere. You can push this to the edge, though, because there are times when you just defiantly do not care about people’s opinions in situations where it’ll matter quite a bit. This can mean totally embarrassing yourself in a job interview or going out to a company event and disregarding the dress code. Sometimes, it feels like too much of a hassle to try and get on everyone’s good side all the time out in the world. So, you can do things in order to rebel. Even if you aren’t outrageous about it, your obvious lack of concern can be quite shocking.

But, in the end, this is what gets you ahead in life, just as long as you’re not too extreme or disrespectful about it. You aren’t about pretense and don’t need to try hard to create some persona that’s going to impress everyone. You never believe that career should be that important, which is why you sometimes couldn’t care less about your career. You need plenty of time off and a feeling of freedom from the demands of what you do. After all, as I’ve been saying ad nauseum, Uranus is your mental state of freedom. So, while you will need a place in society that liberates you, you will also need to feel liberated from that place in society. You don’t want work to control your life.

The Future of Astrology Arena



I wanted to write this because this has been on my mind a lot recently and I also feel the need to officially share this news. As I’ve been wrapping up my Uranus in the houses series, I’d been thinking about what I wanted to do next on the blog. I have been running Astrology Arena for three and a half years now. I’ve grown so much throughout this time, going from writing short, simple articles to in-depth profiles that not only allowed you guys to understand astrology more but helped me understand astrology a lot more, as well. I’ve shared quite a bit about myself and, in the process, had a breakthrough that led to understand myself a lot more through a far more accurate chart. I also started my practice of doing readings, which obviously helped me a great deal in terms of understanding astrology more. And even my style of doing readings has grown a lot, going from various forms of written readings to the video readings I’m doing now.

I have also done one series after the next, pretty much discussing all of the crucial information you need to know about astrology: the planets in the signs and houses, the chart ruler/Rising signs, Jupiter, Saturn, the houses themselves, the Midheaven, the North Node. I mean, it’s exhausting to sit back and think about all that I’ve written about. So, I’m at a point where, in terms of this blog, I’ve really done it all. Sure, I can continue to write about various things. But, now, it’s starting to feel like it’s growing stale. I definitely don’t want to remain stagnant. I want to keep growing and if I keep up the same grind of writing on this blog, I don’t think that I will keep growing.

So, I have decided that I will stop writing articles on here by September. I will close out my Uranus in the houses series with Uranus in the 10th and do a handful more articles for August. I like the idea of getting to my 370th post. In numerology, 370 is a 1 number, meaning that it is a new beginning. So, that’s fitting, especially since I just turned 28 and I’m now going through a 1 year. The last time I did, I felt myself going through a lot of changes and beginning a new chapter. I’m feeling a similar way right now. It also seems like perfect timing because Jupiter will move into my 9th House next month. Instead of the stereotypical yearning to “go traveling” (although I am entertaining a move sometime during this transit), I am more so looking forward to doing a lot of growing and expanding as a person. Jupiter going direct in my 8th has allowed me to clearly understand my power a lot more these days. I want to use that power to propel me forward.

Now, this does not mean that I won’t be doing astrology at all anymore. Far from it, actually. I will still be doing videos on my YouTube channel on various astrological topics and I want to start focusing on doing what I can to make it grow (so if you still haven’t subscribed, go ahead and do it). I would love to use my channel to collaborate with other astrologers, as well. I will definitely still be doing my video readings and my e-mail consultations with people, as well. But, I will be creating a website for myself as an astrologer where I can advertise and sell these services. Let’s face it: it’s more legit to conduct your business through a website than a blog. It was fine when I first started out. But, this is one of the ways that I want to expand. And I will definitely share the website name and link with you once it’s done, which will be sometime by the end of the month.

In addition to this, I will also be still selling and writing e-books, which you will also be able to purchase through my website. My Descendant e-book will still be available. Another e-book that I want to do is basically a collection of all of the crucial information on this blog. So, a big book of astrology featuring my articles on the Sun, Moon, chart ruler, Midheaven, North Node, houses, etc. I’m obviously going to have to do plenty of editing, condensing, and re-writing. But, as far as my e-books, it is my next project and I hope to have it done within the next couple of months. Also, I want to do an e-book about all of the Sun-Moon combinations but I’ll be working on that after my comprehensive astrology e-book.

And the reason why I want to make and sell that book is because I will be taking this blog down soon after I stop doing articles; maybe October or so. I will probably still need it up for a little to be able to create traffic and attract people to my readings. But, hopefully, I will build enough of an online presence soon so where I won’t need to keep it up (that will also probably mean getting a Facebook page for my astrology ventures, a necessarily evil that my Scorpio Midheaven is not a fan of but which I will also share if and when I do). This blog has served as a public journal for all of my theories and ideas about astrology. Once I have translated all of those major ideas into my e-book, I won’t need to keep it up anymore. I’ve kept journals all my life but have always thrown them out once I feel like I have outgrown that phase in my life. It’s a Plutonian thing, I think. So, it’s in character for me. The information will still be out there; just in a different format.

But, I am grateful to everyone who has ever purchased a service from me or followed this blog or connected to my articles. It’s been an interesting journey these past few years and I think it’s only going to get more interesting. Again, this is not a goodbye. We will still be able to connect and I’ll still be able to share my astrology views with you and provide you with my services. You’ll just be reaching me in a different way. Speaking of which, I do still want to keep up my Q & A sessions every month. But, I will probably make it so you either put your questions in the comment section of a video or you send me an e-mail with your question.

Anyways, I still have seven more articles left in me after this one. And this news may disappoint a few of you. But, as much as I appreciate you, I won’t say sorry for it because it’s the direction that I just know I have to go in. It’s what feels right. But, I will say thank you for reading my blog and giving me the chance to hone my skills and become a better astrologer. And I look forward to sharing the next chapter with you!

Uranus in the 12th House



The second to last article in my Uranus in the houses series is for Uranus in the 12th House. Uranus’ influence already lends a certain wildness and strangeness to the matters of that house. But, having a 12th House Uranus can just be a profoundly strange, life-long experience that you will never entirely understand. The 12th House symbolizes matters that are beyond us in so many ways. This can be in a spiritual, metaphysical, intuitive, or empathetic sense. In any case, this is the house where we stretch beyond our own personal experiences as well as beyond the material and temporal plane. It’s already confusing to have a planet in the 12th House but to have Uranus here is probably one of the most confusing 12th House placements. If Uranus is where we find our mental freedom, a person with this influence has a lot of letting go and healing to do before they can reach the state of consciousness needed in order to taste that freedom.

In most cases, planets in the 12th House describe a person’s prenatal experiences and how they affected the individual on a highly unconscious level. The 12th House person is, then, always simultaneously yearning for that state but terrified of being engulfed by it, in some way. Uranus in the 12th means that the mother’s pregnancy was most likely very chaotic. Much like Jupiter in the 12th, this can symbolize a mother who was not ready to give up her freedom in order to go through this nine-month-ordeal. There may have even been a sense of dread or foreboding about the perceived loss of freedom inherent in being a mother. The 12th House Uranus’ mom could have been constantly going against the grain of what pregnant women should “normally” do, in some fashion or another. Instead of happily glowing and awaiting the due date, she may have been anxious, frazzled, impatient, or vaguely bored and detached from it all. A sense of distance crept in, as if she was watching some other woman have morning sickness and weight gains and odd cravings. Speaking of oddness, her food cravings could’ve been really outlandish and she may have become seriously accident-prone during this time, as well.

In utero, a feeling was implanted inside of you that made you equally frightened of giving up your freedom as well as just as unaffected and detached from what was actually happening. Through this link with your mother, you became very used to chaos and embracing the unexpected. (Speaking of which, Uranus in the 12th could mean that your conception was so unexpected that it was hard to even believe) So, when you came out of the womb, you had this side of you that was just overwhelmingly unpredictable, odd, and free. 12th House planets are usually expressed in extremes early in life until feelings of guilt, fear, and victimization settle in for just having those traits. With Uranus in the 12th, it could be a profound sense of terrible things happening whenever you expressed your freedom and individuality. People with this placement can grow up in very repressive homes, in one way or another, that do not encourage the uninhibited expression of one’s quirks and independent ideas. Sometimes, this is because one or both parents were made to feel really bad about themselves for being different or individualistic, at some point in life, and instill those phobias within you. So, you unconsciously learned to tuck those traits away in order to survive. 



There may have been a sense, in your early environment, that it was really important to fit in and not cause too much of a stir. As a result, 12th House Uranus individuals learn how to become very good at blending in and just easily going with the flow. A part of you was so kooky and so erratic that you soon became ashamed of it somehow. There could have been people, including one or both caregivers, who made you feel bad for being so different. It was like you just didn’t have any space to be an individual. You also may have just gotten a lot of side-eye for those wacky ideas that were always coming to you. So, in order to survive, you thought it was better to just hide those elements of yourself. However, no energy truly stays hidden. 12th House energy always finds a way to re-emerge and when it does, it is usually destructive. Even though you became a chameleon to adjust to your early environment, and subsequently life itself, your repressed yearning for freedom has always had a messy way of coming back up to the surface.

One way this can happen is through desperate forms of escapism. Since Uranus is how we free ourselves intellectually, having Uranus in the 12th means that you feel the freest when you are in your own little world. Otherwise, it’s hard for you to express that independence or individuality, making you easily overwhelmed. Without that sense of what makes you different, you can feel so much like other people to the point of taking on their personality traits and mannerisms and perspectives. It often happens without you even realizing it because you lack any sense of psychic boundaries between you and the other person. This is problematic in many ways, including your lack of a perspective or identity that is separate from other people. So, you are always absorbing what other people think and say as if they are your own thoughts or words. It’s no surprise, then, that Uranus in the 12th House people, when living unconsciously, can seem to lack originality or be major copycats, just doing what other people do and saying what other people say.

But, there is something about this that suffocates you and exhausts you. It’s like you can never get a real break when you’re around others because you’re always merging their psychic energy with others. This is why being alone and away from others is often your only form of true freedom. When you have this solitary time, you can clearly see what separates you from others and what makes you different. It’s also why solitude is crucial for you because you need that time to detach. It’s actually healing and peaceful for you. When you don’t have that time to detach, you lack this inner serenity to a degree that becomes troublesome. You’ll then be increasingly distant and detached in subtle, covert ways, whether that means totally checking out and not paying attention to others or becoming more and more unreachable, until others wonder if you’re even in your own skin.

Sometimes, it feels as if you’d just be better off leaving your own body, which is what attracts many 12th House Uranus people to astral travel. It’s like the more you are in this human form, here on earth, the less liberated you feel. These are struggles that, again, occur on an unconscious level and they can drive you in strange ways. Your detachment can also make you more and more unassociated with yourself. A common complaint with Uranus in the 12th is that there are plenty of days where you don’t know what you think anymore. It’s like your mind is being taken over by aliens, which could actually be an oddly comforting thought for you. The process of working out what’s going on in your head can be far too terrifying for you. It’s similar to Mercury in the 12th but it operates on a deeper level because you’re resisting all of these unusual thoughts, feelings, and fantasies, uncertain if they belong to you or to someone else or to someone you’ve never even met.

This is all what can make it very easy for Uranus in the 12th House folks to project their weirdness on to people on a mass scale, blaming them for being too odd, too inconsistent, or too distant. It might seem like people just hold themselves at arm’s length from you all the time or that they are too hard to pin down or predict. But, the truth is that this is your inner life rising up to your consciousness and you just can’t entirely deal with it. A part of you will never feel free until you do. This is why you can get so utterly lost in alone time. It’s also why you can make sudden changes or breakaways at very inopportune times, without knowing what you’re doing. It’s like everyone is sucking you dry and exhausting you and you’ve just got to cut loose. Actual feelings of claustrophobia or being trapped can settle in, as well, especially when you’re overwhelmed.

Because you can feel tied down by people who take advantage of you, you may also become surprisingly cold and unsympathetic in the face of other people’s problems. Uranus’ house placement operates in and on-and-off fashion for us. So, with Uranus in the 12th, there are times where you are wonderfully empathetic and times where you can be truly insensitive. This may really shock you because you never want to think of yourself like that. Yet, when you do become aloof, particularly in the face of someone’s suffering, this is a sign that you are not independently dealing with your own suffering enough. This placement can create a ton of inner pain and sadness and loneliness on the inside that you just keep running away from because it’s easier to not pay attention to it. You might not want to get to attached to suffering, whether that’s yours or someone else’s, because you fear that it will just weigh you down and prevent you from reaching that elusive state of freedom. So, you may either be terribly out-of-touch with your inner life or with what’s happening with others on a deeper, more subtle sort of level.

The solution to this is to gain the higher consciousness that the 12th House represents by knowing that, with Uranus in the 12th, the day-to-day world will never be freeing enough or accepting enough for you. There is a lot of pain you harbor in terms of being misunderstood or rejected. I’ve found that the 12th House Uranus, though, is usually very unconscious and unaware of being an outcast or misfit or tortured genius until some crucial breakthrough moment in life. This is when the illusion shatters and you come face-to-face with your inner pain. By working through this inner melancholy or sadness around what makes you different, you will come to see that everyone feels a bit misunderstood or rejected, at some point or on some level. This is an essential part of your humanity that you have to embrace because it allows you to heal yourself and others.

Uranus shows us how there is really no such thing as normal. Uranus in the 12th means accepting that, on a wider and collective scale, no human being is truly “normal.” This awakens your amazing compassion for yourself and others. It starts with yourself, once you realize that the “real world” can be a harshly judgmental, unaccepting place and that there isn’t limitless room for this higher sense of inclusiveness and tolerance on this earthly plane. You strengthen your spiritual awareness by tapping into that unconditional acceptance for your fellow man. Doing this allows you to align yourself with the Higher Power. Spirituality will be one of the ways in which you free yourself, knowing that the Creator loves you and accepts you for all of your differences and oddities. So, in the face of worldly rejection, you can feel a deeply internal sense of belonging. By developing this relationship with the Source (or the Universe or the Higher Power, however you want to call it), you’ll be able to engage with the day-to-day world with no expectations of such acceptance.

This is how the selflessness of the 12th expresses itself. You rise above the ego when you let go of this concept of morphing and changing yourself in order to fit in and hide what makes you different. Your egoless state is found through non-conformity. It’s an energy that you won’t express too directly, though. You will just feel it from deep within and will be able to tap into it when you’re alone or engaged in your spiritual time. By doing so, you won’t feel the need to try and be someone that you’re not. This will make you a wise, touching influence in others’ lives by encouraging them to not be someone that they’re not. You can bless them by providing them with a lack of judgment that they can’t get from most people. Uranus in the 12th House people are here to be beacons of acceptance in that way, all while loving or forgiving others in spite of their inability to be as encouraging of their differences.

12th House planets are the highest, most ideal expression of that energy when they’re consciously expressed. So, Uranus in the 12th House people can express the independence, unique intellect, freedom of spirit, and startling intuitiveness of this planet without falling into the patterns of being too bizarre, defiant, all over the place, or distant from other people. If you do fall into these patterns, it will be deeply painful and it will show you just how much you need to access that inner freedom in a more peaceful, conscious manner. Still, since our Uranus house does not unfold in a conventional fashion, your road to redemption is not smooth and predictable. There is usually a lot of backsliding or falling off the wagon that a 12th House Uranus individual has to go through in order to find their salvation. You are a true sinner and saint in one package because you are very aware of this higher self but also just as open to your messier, more problematic sides. 



In terms of actual addictions, this can be particularly tricky to navigate. Uranus in the 12th House is probably most liable toward substance or alcohol abuse out of any other planet here because there is such an exhilarating freedom that comes with that state of mind. The 12th House can say a lot about how you are when you’re under the influence. With this placement, your drunk self (or your high self) can go absolutely crazy. You are probably walking chaos whenever you’re not sober and could find yourself finally able to shake off all of those influences that keep swaying you this way and that way. In fact, your non-sober self can seriously shock people, in one way or another. But, since we have a hard time controlling our Uranus, it can be really difficult for you to control your intake, which only creates even more unexpected chaos during these times. The good thing is that, one day, you can decide to just do away with it altogether. This, of course, applies to those who are social drinkers or recreational users than flat-out addicts. But, even with alcoholics or drug abusers, when you want to make a change, you can do it overnight and quite radically.

Since things can get so crazy and messy for you when you’re not sober, it’s probably way better for you to find that state of freedom through spirituality or art. There is a certain brilliance to Uranus and, as an artist, you can express that genius in an amazing way. In fact, 12th House Uranus individuals usually don’t seem very intellectual until they engage in their art. In fact, unfortunately, you might be easily labeled as a bit “dumb” by people, in a general sense. But, you are certainly intelligent. You just probably have a hard time articulating yourself and getting your point across in a strictly logical, direct sense. It just gets expressed in this very intuitive, otherworldly way.

This not only applies to your artistic talent but your uniquely empathetic understanding of humanity. You possess a strange compassion that just hits you like lightning, allowing you to acutely comprehend anyone’s perspective. This obviously can be channeled into your art to amazing results. Your hidden yet powerful intellect also is evident in the fascinating way you go about your art. You can access visions, ideas, and techniques as an artist that no one has ever thought of before. In your artistic life, you create another world where you can totally get loose. No one is judging you in this Universe, so you’re free to do whatever you want. Brilliant spells of artistic inspiration and a refusal to conform to the rules of the craft can define the 12th House Uranus artist.

Much of this can come from your dream life, which is very interesting, to say the least. You might have incredibly vivid dreams, in a manner that no one else does, and understand all of the strange symbolism in your dreams like it’s a second language. All of your inner weirdness comes out in your dream life, so the fantasies that dance through your head at night may freak you out, at times. This can contribute to the recurring, unpredictable spells of insomnia that you deal with.  Sometimes, you are far too wired and keyed-up at night to sleep, as you can be an absolute night owl. Other times, you might fall into a deep sleep as soon as you hit your pillow, desperate to escape your day-to-day concerns. It’s just all dependent on how your night is going.
