Uranus in Gemini
Uranus in Gemini is a lively placing, endowing originality, quick thinking and often brilliant ideas. Here is excellent potential. If Mercury and Jupiter are well placed in the chart, this adds a sharp attitude and quick responses. This is good for literary or academic work, a career in the media or communications. If poorly aspected, Gemini’s restlessness will be a problem. If Mars in involved in negative aspects to Uranus, distress, worry, and headaches may be a problem. Relaxation techniques such as yoga may help.
Uranus was in Gemini only eight years since the time of the Civil War, from May 1942 through June 1949. When Uranus entered Gemini the G.I. bill altered the emphasis on education in the U.S. Thousands now went on to college when before a high school education had been enough. Since it is the higher octave of the ruler of Gemini, it increases your ability to intuit and grasp new concepts quickly. This sign placement is good in occupations that deal with ideas, teaching, writing, communication, computers, and electromagnetic waves in general (radio, TV, radar). You tend to be restless, and may move a lot. If Mercury is in hard or quincunx aspect to Uranus there will be trouble with relatives. You may find yourself relaxing in telephone conversations, puzzles, and in making connections. Uranus returns to each sign once every 84 years.
