Uranus In Aquarius. Because Uranus is in its own sign, it would be quite wrong to think that everyone born during the seven-year period will be an archetypal Aquarian. But the generation as a whole has a particularly independent streak, and will want to go its own (stubborn) way. If other planets are in Aquarius, the best qualities of the sign will emerge – humanitarianism, friendliness, and sympathy for Earth’s problems such as global warming. It is up to these people to bring about greater awareness of them in others.
