Uranus   

Uranus themes are Liberation and Freedom - "deprogramming for evolution". He activates, ignites and he's electrical (seizures). He likes surprises and those most ideally sudden - it's his instrument for radical change. He's the least selfish of all the planets and very intelligent (air energy) with a scientific mind. When we can liberate ourselves from restrictive thinking, to allow our "comfort" to be challenged by change, we may open the door for surprises and wonders to enter our lives.... and that is, what he talks about... 

Greek Mythology: Uranus (a Titan) is the God of the Sky. He's married to Gaia. Cronus (Saturn) is their Son and Zeus (Jupiter) their Grandson.  

Some Astronomy:  Uranus orbits the Sun once every 84 years, taking an average of seven years to pass through each constellation of the zodiac. In 2033, the planet will have made its third complete orbit around the Sun since being discovered in 1781. The planet has returned to the point of its discovery northeast of Zeta Tauri twice since then, in 1862 and 1943, one day later each time as the precession of the equinoxes has shifted it 1° west every 72 years. Uranus will return to this location again in 2030-31. Its average distance from the Sun is roughly 20 AU (3 billion km; 2 billion mi). The difference between its minimum and maximum distance from the Sun is 1.8 AU, larger than that of any other planet, though not as large as that of dwarf planet Pluto.  The intensity of sunlight varies inversely with the square of distance, and so on Uranus (at about 20 times the distance from the Sun compared to Earth) it is about 1/400 the intensity of light on Earth. The Uranian axis of rotation is approximately parallel with the plane of the Solar System, with an axial tilt of 97.77° (as defined by prograde rotation). This gives it seasonal changes completely unlike those of the other planets. Near the solstice, one pole faces the Sun continuously and the other faces away. Only a narrow strip around the equator experiences a rapid day–night cycle, but with the Sun low over the horizon. At the other side of Uranus's orbit the orientation of the poles towards the Sun is reversed. Each pole gets around 42 years of continuous sunlight, followed by 42 years of darkness. His last equinox was on the 7th of December 2007.  (Ref. Wikipedia)
