Uranus-Uranus Aspects

When someone’s Uranus is conjunct your Uranus, you are around the same age! Uranus takes 84 years to orbit the Sun, so you also share this aspect with people who are that much older than you. This aspect indicates you reinforce each other’s uniqueness and individuality in whatever area your Uranus represents.

For example, if I have Uranus in my 11th house, it means I attract eccentric, unique friends. Someone’s Uranus in this house means they might be one of my unique friends, or may introduce me to other friends like them.

Uranus sextile or trine someone else’s Uranus indicates an appreciation for each other’s uniqueness and individuality. The two of you have a mutual respect for each other’s ‘out-there’ ideas and give each other plenty of space.

Uranus square or opposite someone else’s Uranus can be problematic, particularly if Uranus features strongly in each of their charts. This aspect indicates the two partners are very different when it comes to independence, uniqueness, individuality, and freedom.

For example, my Uranus is in Sagittarius seeks ‘freedom’ through travel, philosophy, and being as independent as possible. If my partner had Uranus in Pisces, this mean they seek ‘freedom’ through spirituality, arts, and helping others.

As a result, there may be a feeling of ‘getting in each other’s way’ when each person wants to express their individuality; Sagittarius wants to travel and roam, while Pisces wants to meditate and connect with their inner world. It is difficult for these two to find a way for them both to express their individuality and freedom when they are with each other.

You must look at what house Uranus rules in each person’s chart to assess these aspects properly. For example, if Uranus rules one person’s 7th house, a square from another person’s Uranus could spell trouble for the couple. The couple may not be able to commit to each other or settle down into a predictable or stable relationship due to this aspect.


Uranus-Neptune Aspects

When someone’s Uranus is conjunct your Neptune, an exciting, spiritual relationship is indicated. The Uranus person awakens the Neptune person’s intuitive powers, and shows Neptune new and innovative ways of harnessing their compassion and spirituality. The Neptune person provides understanding and compassion for Uranus’ uniqueness and individuality, and is charmed by Uranus’ quirky and eccentric nature.

Uranus sextile or trine someone else’s Neptune indicates a relationship full of spiritual connection and understanding. The Uranus person helps the Neptune person innovate their spiritual world, while the Neptune person provides compassion and understanding to the Uranus person.

Uranus square or opposite someone else’s Neptune can be problematic. This aspect indicates the Uranus person has a very disruptive effect on Neptune’s realm of spirituality, dreams, and compassion. At the same time, the Uranus person feels the Neptune person is too idealistic.

When Neptune wants to be dreamy and spiritual with the Uranus person, Uranus might want to rebel, which may make the Neptune person feel they cannot rely on the Uranus person. When the Uranus person wants to display their uniqueness and individuality, they might not find understanding or support with the Neptune person. Both partners may feel the other doesn’t understand the other.

You must look at what house Uranus and Neptune rule in their respective charts to assess these aspects properly. For example, if Neptune rules one person’s 7th house, a square from another person’s Uranus could spell trouble for the couple. The couple may not be able to commit to each other or settle down into a predictable or stable relationship due to this aspect.


Uranus-Pluto Aspects

When someone’s Uranus is conjunct your Pluto, an explosive relationship is indicated. Uranus and Pluto are both outer planets, but their energies differ greatly. Uranus represents freedom, uniqueness, individuality, raw genius and progress, while Pluto represents control, intensity, intimacy, transformation, and death. In combination, this aspect could lead to a powerfully exciting relationship, but could also lead to explosive arguments and power struggles.

At first, the Uranus person feels their Uranian qualities intensified by the Pluto person, while the Pluto person find the Uranus person exciting and inspiring. However, over time, these two may become irritated with each other. Uranus might not like the way Pluto tries to control the way they express their uniquess, while Pluto may find the Uranus person unreliable and difficult to control.

Uranus sextile or trine someone else’s Pluto indicates an exciting and transformative relationship. These two encourage each other’s strengths and uniquess, and find innovated ways to connect more deeply with each other.

Uranus square or opposite someone else’s Pluto can be problematic. Much like the conjunction, this aspect can bring about issues about control vs. freedom. The Uranus person in this case may feel very ‘caged in’ by the Pluto person, and does not appreciate Pluto’s attempts to change or transform the way they express their uniqueness or individuality.

The Pluto person wants to merge and connect deeply with the Uranus person, but feels the Uranus person is too unreliable and unpredictable to do so. Pluto requires complete and utter commitment and loyalty, which is not something Uranus can give.

You must look at what house Uranus and Pluto rule in their respective charts to assess these aspects properly. For example, if Pluto rules one person’s 7th house, a square from another person’s Uranus could spell trouble for the couple. The couple may not be able to commit to each other or settle down into a predictable or stable relationship due to this aspect.

Another example: If Uranus rules someone’s 1st house, and Pluto makes a square to it, the Pluto person may try to control or transform the way the Uranus person’s appearance in some way.


Uranus-North Node Synastry

This aspect is a very interesting one. The North Node person shares this aspect with most people around the Node person’s age, but it does not mean the aspect is insignificant.

Uranus in conjunction to another person’s North Node shows the Uranus’ person’s individuality, uniqueness, and raw genius help bring the North Node person closer to their true path in life. The North Node shows the qualities we need to develop in this life, as opposed to the South Node which shows the qualities that are already developed and ingrained within us. The North Node feels uncomfortable; it is outside of our comfort zone, so it can feel quite scary.

Uranus has a very abrupt and erratic energy, so the North Node person may feel a lot of progress very suddenly and unexpectedly. The Uranus person is like a guru who brings the Node person closer to their true purpose.

For example, say your North Node is in your 1st house. In this life, the North Node is calling on you to embrace your individuality and focus on yourself, rather than being dependent on partnerships and relationships. If someone’s Uranus is on your North Node, the Uranus person might inspire you to radically change your appearance and embrace what makes you unique. It may feel weird for you to focus on yourself and your needs so much, but the Uranus person’s energy makes it hard for you to say no.


Uranus-South Node Synastry

This aspect indicates a past life connection that was rather unstable or unpredictable. The South Node person shares this aspect with most people around the Node person’s age, but it does not mean the aspect is insignificant.

Uranus on another person’s South Node indicates the couple feel very familiar with each other, as they have met in a past life. The Uranus person probably entered the South Node person’s life suddenly and unexpectedly. The South Node person may feel a sense of liberation or freedom in the relationship with the Uranus person, as the Uranus person encourages the South Node person to look at themselves in a new way.

At the same time, this relationship may feel very unstable and ungrounded, given Uranus’ unpredictable energy. Though this relationship may start and end very abruptly, the lessons they learn from each other last a lifetime. As with all South Node connections, this relationship may begin to feel draining for both partners. The South Node tends to ‘feed’ on any planet that touches it, so the Uranus person may eventually become drained, while the Node person may feel held back.

For example, if your South Node is in your 7th house, it means you concentrated a lot on the needs of others in the past, and in this life, you are called on to embrace independence and individuality. Someone’s Uranus on your 7th house South Node brings a familiar energy to you; you are used to putting energy into your relationships and considering other people’s needs.

Your Uranus person brings an exciting energy to your relationship sector, and may even help you learn new and innovative ways of having a relationship. However, the relationship might be quite erratic and unpredictable over time, which might be quite draining for the 7th house person, as they do not feel they can rely on the Uranus person. The Uranus person may feel a ‘pull’ towards the South Node person, but may also eventually feel drained, leading to a rebellion and subsequent break up.

Mars-Uranus Aspects in Synastry


In astrology, Mars is the planet of Sex and Aggression, while Uranus is the planet of unpredictability, originality, and freedom.


When one person’s Mars makes a hard aspect (conjunction, square, or opposition) to another person’s Uranus, an explosive, interesting, exciting relationship is indicated. Sexual attraction, at least at first, is strong. This aspect favors sexual experimentation, as the two of you encourage each other to “push the envelope” and try new things. You may also encourage one another to engage in reckless and impulsive behavior. The Mars person finds the Uranus person exciting and unpredictable, especially in the beginning. The Uranus person is “turned on” by the Mars person, and the sexual possibilities the relationship offers.


On the downside, this aspect also indicates instability and volatility in a relationship. The Uranus person may see the Mars person as a threat to their independence, which can make him distance himself from the Mars person. The Uranus person has a way of stimulating the Mars person’s temper. As a result, explosive, sudden arguments are likely to characterize this association. However, the blow-ups are likely to die down as suddenly as they begin. In addition, there may be an on-off sexual energy that plagues the couple. When the initial, exciting sexual energies die out, the Uranus person may feel bored and feel the need to move on.


My Uranus in Sagittarius squared my ex-boyfriend’s Mars in Virgo. While my sexual attraction to him was very strong at first, it certainly did undergo plenty of changes throughout the relationship. There were plenty of times when the idea of having sex with him simply turned me off, while at other times, I was very turned on by him. We got into explosive arguments all the time, and said plenty of nasty things to each other. I absolutely hated the fact that he had to plan everything out all the time (Mars in Virgo); I felt it stifling and annoying.


The trine and sextile aspects between Mars and Uranus in synastry are much easier to handle. In this case, you encourage each other’s independence. Your relationship is likely stimulating and high-energy. You experiment with each other sexually, and encourage one another to try new things. This is a very adventurous and exciting relationship, so it will be difficult to ever be bored with each other!


Bad Sex Synastry

The Synastry of Bad Sex


Sure, Astrology can give us indications of great sex in synastry, but can it indicate bad sex, too? Here are some aspects which may indicate sexual incompatibility. Note: These aspects, on their own, do not necessarily indicate “bad sex”. Supportive aspects can negate these influences.


Mars square/opposite Mars:

In astrology, Mars represents our sexual style. When your Mars squares another person’s Mars, it indicates that your sexual styles are at odds. You express your sexuality in different ways, which can indicate sexual incompatibility.

Squares cause friction, so it may be difficult to reconcile these sexual differences. Your body rhythms may not match well, which can result in disappointment for both of you.

For example, Mars in Taurus natives enjoy natural, physical sexual expressions. They are not fond of spontaneity or variety when it comes to love-making. If a Mars in Taurus person partnered up with a Mars in Aquarius person, this may spell trouble.

Mars in Aquarius intellectualizes sex, which may confuse the Mars in Taurus person. Mars in Aquarius seeks plenty of variety in sex, and tends to enjoy the “idea” of sex more than the act itself. This would obviously be a problem for sensual Mars in Taurus, who needs plenty of physical contact to be satisfied.

The opposition is not as problematic as the square, but can point to different sexual styles. In this case, the two of you can learn a lot from each other if you work together. This aspect can indicate tremendous sexual attraction, but both partners may need to come out of their comfort zones.

Mars square Saturn:

Saturn is the planet of restriction and discipline, while Mars is the planet of sex and aggression. When these two planets collide in synastry, sexual problems may plague the couple. Saturn may block, hamper, or limit Mars’ sexuality.

Saturn may feel disappointed with Mars’ performance in bed, generating anger and hostility between the couple. This can result in the decline of Mars’ self-confidence when it comes to sexual matters.

Mars square Uranus:

Hard aspects from Uranus to another person’s planets in synastry often indicate an on-off energy in regards to the planet involved. This aspect doesn’t necessarily indicate “bad” sex, but can indicate sudden shifts in sexual interest on the part of the Uranus person.

At first, the sex is likely to be electric and fulfilling, but over time, the Uranus person may tire of the sex and seek excitement somewhere else.
