Uranus in Pisces
Uranus was last in this sign between 1919 and 1927 and will be there again between 2003 and 2011. The changable nature of Uranus agrees well with the mutable/bicorporeal quality of this place, but the extreme dryness of Uranus does not agree well with the cold and wet nature of Pisces. This has the effect of slowing down transitions, submerging rebellions into the underground and creating passive resistance. If I'm not mistaken, it was during this time that Gandhi first led his passive resistance movement to free India from the British. It is also interesting that during this time prohibition became law in the USA (Pisces = alcohol), but was widely ignored and resisted covertly. When Uranus enters in 2003 there is likely to be increased interest in exploring the oceans and new technology to help make it happen. There will likely be many more surprising discoveries in oceanography. Remote vacation spots may become more popular. Technology will become more common place in third world nations and India may experience a renaissance because of this. Those of this generation born with Uranus in high focus here may follow the example of Gandhi as a leader in passive or underground resistance to authority. They will have to find a balance between personal freedom, and personal sacrifice.
In a diurnal chart, the heat and dryness of the day strengthen Uranus's hot and dry nature. These individuals will tend to value personal freedom over sacrifice. They are likely to be more rebellious as a result, but in a subtle, more passive way.
In a nocturnal chart, the cold and moist of night counteract the hot and dry nature of Uranus. As a result, these individuals are less likely to value personal freedom or are more willing to sacrifice it for the greater good. In some cases it may be that they lack the spirit to fight for freedom even though they value it.
