Uranus in Virgo
Uranus in Virgo is a potential source of tension, especially if the individual is rather nervous or anxious, or if tension is evident in other areas of the chart. These energies can be put to good use as they will inject the mind with ability to analyze and research, and will also encourage a certain originality of approach to any problem or project that is under consideration. Since Virgo is an earth sign, it tends to be conventional – the familiar and well-tried is preferred, yet Uranus’ influence is quite the reverse, encouraging original thoughts and actions, and often unconventional behavior.
Uranus was in Virgo only seven years since the 1800’s, from August 1962 through September 1968. Souls born during this period are concerned with the healing power of nature and of the mind over the body, as well as natural foods and organic gardening. This is also a good placement for inventors, scientists, and advanced medical researchers, for the ability to analyze and to discriminate is strong here. Uranus, the planet of change, in Virgo, ruling the "little people" and minorities, symbolizes the civil rights movement in this country, and third world revolutions all over the globe. Individually, you find new ways to serve others and have unique insights into diet, health, ecology and conservation. Interested in new or alternate life styles, you are economy personified, always able to salvage and redeem anything. You like to tend and care for people and things, and relax by working. Uranus returns to each sign once every 84 years.
