Uranus is the first planet beyond the regular limit of visibility to the unaided human eye on Earth, only visible in opposition with the Sun and only discovered through the human ingenuity of the telescope. Its rotational axis is so extreme that it doesn’t just orbit around the Sun like the other planets, it rolls! Accordingly, Uranus represents the transcendence of ordinary limits, signifying liberation, freedom, individualism, revolution, progress and disruptive technology. The condition of Uranus at the time of our birth shows what role we may play in our 7-year generation’s revolution in the topics of its sign and house placement.
Uranus in Leo is in a fixed fire sign which revolutionizes, radicalizes and disrupts the significations of its ruler, the Sun. This sign is associated with creative self expression, the entertainment industry, lights, luminaries, leaders. People from this 7-year span of time may stand out as regal, proud and creative as a group, and individuals with aspects from Uranus to more personal planets and points may stand out as their revolutionary stars and leaders.
People also take on characteristics of the time they come from. Accordingly, in the 1955-1962 Uranus in Leo period, this manifested in the electric jolt given to the world of music with the mainstream emergence of rock and roll and Motown, the elevation of rock stars and its accompanying sense of youthful rebellion and creative expression. Fittingly for Leo, the musicians associated with or born in this Uranus in Leo period are often referred to in terms of royalty: Elvis Presley, the King of Rock and Roll, Michael Jackson and Madonna, the King and Queen of Pop, and Prince. In the same Uranus in Leo period, big Hollywood movie studios began to falter and leased movies to run on television, meanwhile big movie stars like Marilyn Monroe began to revolt against them to create their own independent production companies.
Uranus in Leo periods are also coincident with revolutions in lighting technologies. The gaslight was first invented during the 1787-1795 Uranus in Leo period. In the 1871-1878 Uranus in Leo period, incandescent lightbulbs were invented. And then in the most recent 1955-1962 Uranus in Leo period, the first laser was invented, confirming Sun-ruled Leo’s association with luminescence.
This is especially true if you were born with Leo rising. Whether you experience the better or worse significations of this position depends on whether you were born during the day or at night, and the kind of aspects it makes with the other planets.
