Uranus placed in the 3rd house of a natal chart will create a person with an unusual way of thought. The mind of the native is working in a different way than the mass; this differentiation can create both the genius and the madman, the pioneer and the socially alienated weirdo. In any case, such kind of people are making humanity progress, as they are receptors of thought patterns which the mass cannot still reach in the collective unconscious. And beware, today’s madman might be recognized as a genius some day, and today’s genius might be a madman who can control his reactions.
This placement gives an original way of thinking, and the native will frequently have moments when innovative ideas will suddenly appear in his mind. His school years might have been difficult, as he may have been considered weird by the other children. He will probably change schools, thus alienating from friends and feeling unsafe in new school surroundings. In any case, school is for him a restriction and he feels a strong urge to break free from its bonds. The moment of finishing school is a huge liberation for his mind. He tends to develop a weird handwriting pattern, or some rather unique way of speaking.
Uranus in the 3rd house can give separation with the native’s siblings; the planet is ruling unexpected events and this can happen as a bolt out of the blue. Generally, the native’s siblings can also have a genius mind, while if Uranus is very adversely afflicted they can have mental problems. Their siblings will usually have Uranian emphasis in their natal chart, or be of Aquarius sign. The same rule can apply to the native’s neighbors, who will be of a rather eccentric nature. This is quite fine and even interesting, and the person can learn a lot through hanging out with them. Of course, when their natal Uranus has destructive aspects from Pluto, Saturn or Mars they should be careful of how they handle their neighbors as they might develop crazy and impulsive reactions. It is not the best thing to have a totally crazy neighbor communicating with you every day and invading your privacy and reality.
People with such a placement are usually fun to hang out with, and they will many times experience unbelievable situations, about which they will be speaking to others for long. Indeed, what Uranus brings cannot be easily believed, but these people have their antennas rather open towards the outer realms. A lot of mysterious things might appear to them; from automatic writing to voices in their head or prophetic dreams. Someone might say that these things are just evidence of mental disorders, but what if the prophetic dream comes true, the voice in the head will whisper a new scientific invention and the automatic writing will create a give answers to important questions?
When Uranus is located in the 3rd house the individual may be very interested with astrology, the paranormal and other areas of spirituality. The third house is responsible for reading and writing, so the native will at least become a frequent reader of books, blogs and forums connected with the supernatural realms. If there is a connection between his natal Uranus and the 9th house, there are big possibilities that he will publish works on these subjects.
This placement makes the native express himself in unusual ways. The third house is also ruling everything that is crafted by hand, and the presence of the planet can make someone a good painter, sculptor or artist. If Uranus is conjuncting Venus in the third house, then the native’s creations can be categorized as wonders. In any case, their art can be defined as original and eccentric, while futurism and asymmetry can frequently be an ingredient of their style. Such artists can also excel in inventive projects where art mixes with machinery and mechanisms, while also use physical phenomena, magnetism or lights in their creations.
They will have some rather chaotic journeys during their life. These short trips can be connected to moments of crisis or escapism tendencies, but after each journey the native will return regenerated and more powerful. These travels will usually start unexpectedly and also contain profane life-changing experiences. The whole pattern of the journey might seem that something higher invited the person to visit the area, so as the weird phenomenon takes place in front of the native’s eyes. The next time you listen such a person speak about his weird experiences, better carefully listen than mock, for Uranus is the ruler of the new era and everyone who he speaks to is his prophet.
