The Uranus in Aries Generation

What do Martin Luther King, Elvis Presley, Gloria Steinem, Ralph Nader, James Dean, Che Guevara and Cesar Chavez have in common? Well, first of all each of these people brought about a revolution,of one sort or another.


Martin Luther King changed forever the racial divide that has so long sullied the soul of this nation. Elvis Presley changed forever popular music. Gloria Steinem brought new life to the feminist movement and changed forever the status of women in America.

Ralph Nader changed the way corporations treat consumers, establishing the notion that the manufacturer of a product had a responsibility to make that product as safe to use as possible. With just one movie, Rebel Without a Cause, James Dean changed the way Americans viewed the concept of coming of age. Che Guevara helped bring a revolution to his own country and, in the process, became the face of the revolutionary in all of us. Cesar Chavez fought to unionize farm workers in the Southwestern United States and to advance the civil rights of Hispanic-Americans.

The second thing that all of these people have in common is the fact that they all were born with Uranus in Aries. Uranus is the planet of revolution. It is the planet of radical change. In Aries it is aggressive and fearless― prepared to challenge any authority that blocks its way. Uranus in Aries gives us a rebel who is confident and ambitious and who is not afraid of a fight.

Of course, every Uranus mini-generation produces its share of rebels. If we look at people born with Uranus in Taurus, or Gemini, or any other sign, we will find people we could label revolutionaries. What is remarkable about these people with Uranus in Aries, however, is the impact that their rebellions had on the world. As a group these people essentially remade the 20th Century.

Right now, there is another generation being born with Uranus in Aries. The oldest are turning three this year. Just like the mini-generation born when Uranus transited Aries between 1927 and 1934 (roughly), the vast majority of this tots will find ways of dealing with Uranus in Aries that will be much quieter and more private than the people cited here. But a few will have Uranus emphasized in their horoscopes in a way that will make this kind of compromise impossible. They will be just as courageous and daring, just a determined to change their world, as the famous representatives of the previous Uranus in Aries mini-generation.

So next time you walk past a daycare center or a pre-school or even a maternity ward, take a moment to wonder which of these toddlers or infants will be the Martin Luther King or the Gloria Steinem of his or her generation. Certainly there will a few of these Uranus in Aries babies who will, in thirty or forty years, rewrite the history of the 21st Century the way the people I’ve named here rewrote the history of the 20th.

Are there any parents of Uranus in Aries babies out there? If so, do you see evidence to the Arian rebel in your bundle of joy?
