Having Uranus in the first house makes a person rather eccentric; these people yearn for freedom and rebel against the stereotypes imposed by their society, religion and traditions. They can become pioneers of great changes, and when assisted by other aspects they can have genius minds. Such individuals have usually turbulent lives full of unexpected events, and are strongly interested in technology.
They have a natural curiosity about the progress in computers and electronics, and simply love getting involved with every new gadget that is produced. Many of them will get a lot deeper in gadgets; they will not only learn how to use them but also to repair them. For them, the way that electricity, data and the internet function is of the most interesting things that exist.
Uranus in the first house usually gives a tall and clumsy figure. There might be a funny way of walking, or some other notable difference from the usual body functions; yet these individuals cannot be considered unattractive. Something in their body might be uneven or asymmetrical; yet the curious fact is that this asymmetry might be of the most attractive things on them. Their clumsiness can bring them accidents, and when Uranus is adversely aspected they can be unlucky through unexpected events. When a transiting planet forms a difficult aspect to their natal Uranus, there can be whole periods of bad luck. Of course, the opposite can happen too; when the aspects are good they might observe periods of devilish luck, synchronicities and series of positive events that would simply not happen to another person.
Such natives appear eccentric to the masses, and this is usually amplified by the weird style and clothing that they choose for their appearance. Most of the times, the reason behind such a personal style is their conscious resistance to fashion and stereotypes. A first house Uranus living in a conservative society would have an extreme appearance; while when living in a society where the extreme is the natural he would choose to dress himself simple and conservatively. He does not care so much about putting taste in how he looks like; unless of course his natal Uranus is somehow connected with Venus.
Individuals with such a placement are rather aggressive, and can have outbursts of anger when pressured or feeling jailed. They adore shocking the world around them; demolishing taboos and revolting is for them a hobby that even brings joy. They are drawn to the paranormal, and many of them either believe or research Astrology, the Occult and other schools of spiritual thought.
They care about the society and are frequently very altruistic. Their revolutionary character can lead them into politics; usually towards groups and parties that are against the system. Such a placement of Uranus creates the activist, and there are high possibilities of joining life-long causes in order to change the society. A first house Uranus should be careful not to become overly fanatic; there is a thin line between fighting for a change and getting into violent behaviors only for the sake of letting your inner anger explode.
First house Uranus natives adore company and fun; socializing in groups is of their favorite things in life. Deep inside them, there might be a hidden solitude, as they know that their radical differences from all the others create barriers. Nevertheless, we are entering the epoch of Aquarius and the whole humanity is obtaining Uranian characteristics. The weirdos of the past will be the average human beings of tomorrow, so even if you don’t have such a placement in your chart, you will more or less evolve as if you have it. All of us will; it is the natural path of our human race.
