Uranus – The Prajapati in Vedic Astrology


Dec, 2015

                                                                          Uranus, Neptune & Pluto are also called extra Saturnine planets in Astrology.  It doesn’t mean Vedic Astrology has no clue about these three outer orbit planets. In vedic Astrology they are named as Prajapati, Varun & Yam. Though they are far away from our Earth still they have effect on our life for good or bad happenings.

Uranus is also called Hershel.  Hershel is the co-ruler of the sign Aquarius and its mode of working is mainly related to natural 11th house in horoscope. The higher vibration of Uranus can’t be observed in most of the people in this materialistic age.  Mode of functioning of Uranus is always sudden, unexpected,  spasmodic, airy, dry, electric and barren in nature.

Aspect of Uranus is never positive, specially conjunction, opposition etc. But formation of Trine with Ascendant or benefic planets can expand the intuitive power, research capacity, ability to dig out the truth, spiritual foresight. Affliction by Uranus can cause sudden fall, or changes in life, person will behave abrupt, wandering here and there without much aim in life.

Hershel represents twist & turns of our fate, disruption. So those who love to be in routine, settled, disciplined life, Uranus is threatening for them. Its basic nature is to change the life upside down without prior notice.
Uranus, the planet of Revolution and Freedom always influences through other planets. So those who are engaged in the field of research, bringing changes in society, breaking taboo, excitement, adventure – Uranus is very much beneficial for them. Very few people can respond to the higher vibration of this planet.
