Uranus in Libra
Uranus was last in Libra from 1968 to 1975. This generation has some rather non-traditional ideas about marriage and partnership. They tend to be non-committal and unpartisan in their affiliations. They seek excitement and variety in their relationships and see them as stepping stones to personal growth. As a result, they tend to have a wider social circle than most. They tend to bring with them the "free love" and flower child ideals of their parents. Their relationships will become especially rocky in middle age when Uranus enters Aries and they want to do their own thing. Those with inner planets in close aspect to Uranus in this sign will tend to be known for free spirited ideals and unique personality.
In a diurnal chart, the heat and dryness amplify the power of Uranus to disrupt the status quo and engage in unconventional standards for relationship. Marriage may not be a closed monogamous ideal to these natives and they will frequently prefer open relationships. They dislike jeolousy and consider it a sign of a lack of understanding and insecurity.
In a nocturnal chart, the cool and wet nature of the night go against the hot and dry nature of Uranus. There tends to be more moderation of social values and they seek a middle ground between tradition and avant garde in relationships. They tend to be a little more conservative than their diurnal counterparts. In some cases, when change happens in their relationships it takes them by surprise because they were not conscious of the need for it.
