Uranus in Cancer
During the last period Uranus was in this sign (1949 - 1956), we began to see the infiltration of all sorts of electrical gadgetry into the home, such as TV sets and home appliances such as refridgerators, toasters and washing machines. Women were taking on new roles within the home for the first time, and some were getting work outside the home. As a result of this empowerment of women, men were becoming confused about their own roles within the societal structure. This turned upside down the old assumptions of what makes a family function as a family. The principle is that Uranus introduces new and exciting changes into domestic circumstances. This is sometimes at odds with the cancerian need for security. Those born during this time with close aspects to Uranus may have some doubts about personal security. Some may express this energy by creating innovative homes for themselves or working as an architect.
In a diurnal chart, the heat and dryness of the day amplify a tendency to break with the status quo. Depending upon other indicators within the chart, this individual may react with rebellion or may feel insecure wishing for the status quo.
In a nocturnal chart, the cool and moist of night counteract the hot and dry nature of Uranus. This is likely to create a more serene domestic environment. Domestic changes that may be due to this would tend to begin on a more subconscious level without the native instigating changes with awareness of any goal.
