Uranus in Scorpio

Bold Scorpio energy makes this a particularly powerful placement, but watch out: Things can get dark.

This is an intense time for self-exploration, and you may find your sense of right and wrong challenged. This may make you swing between extremes and tend to run hot or cold. Lastly, Scorpio is attracted to the occult, and Uranus in Scorpio can create a fascinating backdrop to explore mysticism and the great beyond. Pull out those Tarot cards!

Uranus in Scorpio Personality

Pluto and Uranus make a powerful pair. Therefore, Uranus in Scorpio can tear through pretense and dishonesty to reach the heart of a matter. There's a real appetite for destruction (and reconstruction) with this placement. These folks aren't afraid to take the wrecking ball to their own personality when they feel it's no longer serving them.

Conversely, like all fixed signs, Scorpio Uranus can be stuck in their ways. It isn't that they fear change. In fact, there's very little that they truly fear. Rather, these individuals hate to feel pushed into anything, even if it's in their best interest. Here, where the planets of extremism and power meet, there's a definite compulsion to maintain control. However, they try to keep others in the dark about their darker side, as they believe their intensity to be overwhelming.

Positive Traits

When prominent in the natal chart, Uranus in Scorpio is nonstop. With such passion and power, "satisfaction" isn't a word in their vocabulary. As a result, these individuals exist in a perpetual state of searching—not for curiosity's sake like Sagittarius—but due to a compulsive need to uncover. Secrets are the primary currency for Uranus in Scorpio, and they value them highly. However, in true Scorpio fashion, they keep their own under lock and key.

But when Uranus in Scorpio releases the reins, their passion and imagination can combine to make magic.

Negative Traits

That Scorpionic tendency to be quietly disapproving? It's loud with Uranus in Scorpio. Uranus sparks their rocky emotional landscape, setting the whole thing ablaze. Such volatility coupled with aggressivity is a recipe for disaster. In this way, those with their Uranus in Scorpio should make a concentrated effort to contemplate the cost of their rage before acting on it.

Jealousy is also an issue with Scorpio Uranus, which can make their relationships somewhat turbulent. Overall, with two chaotic planets at play, their missteps could be more cataclysmic than the average person's.


It might take a full demolition team to break Taurus Uranus' spirit, and even they may be unable to do it. When prominently placed in the birth chart, this placement forges its native in stone. Even as the waves of struggle and suffering crash against them, they remain unmoved. Their determination is legendary, but so too is their temper. Due to the shocking nature of Uranus, when their ire makes itself known, it's often without warning.

Though Uranus isn't particularly known for its lessons, these individuals would do well to learn a bit of control. Unpredictability thwarts any and all attempts for stability.
