ENCOUNTER WITH URANUS
AT 8° OF SCORPIO, ON A VACATION
In a natal chart,
vacations are represented by the 5th house.
The ruler of the 5th house, its aspects,
dispositor ( the planet ruling the sign where another
planet is placed or the cusp of the house) and planet(s)
in that house describe the place of our vacation, events
we experience and people we meet.
I was born on 5 September 1977
in Belgrade at 00:08 :40 AM CET -1
placed in the 5th house (vacations) at the 8°
of Scorpio has always exerted stronger influence (due to
its exaltation) than Venus which is the ruler of this
house ( 5th house begins in Libra).
All aspects of Uranus ( trine
with Ascendant, Jupiter and Mars, Sextile with the Sun
and Mercury and square with Venus) showed their
influence on every vacation I took.
Every year I go on a
vacation ( 5th house) with my friends
(Uranus), meet new (Uranus) friends (Uranus), unusual
people ( Uranus), electrical engineers ( Uranus),
computer developers ( Uranus), pilots (Uranus),
parachutists ( Uranus), air hosts (Uranus), homosexuals
( Uranus) and astrologers ( Uranus).
The ruler of the 5th
house, Venus, aspecting Uranus placed in the same house,
shows that on my vacations, I can meet the people
carrying the symbolic of Uranus.
The ruler of the11th
house, Mars ( friends) trine Uranus in the 5th
house (vacations) indicates that on my vacation, I can
also meet friends. These friends also carry the symbolic
More than once, Uranus
( interruptions) in the 5th house (vacations)
and the ruler of the 5th house (vacations)
square Uranus ( interruptions) have made me to suddenly
interrupt my vacations. Therefore, to alleviate the
influence of this aspect, I made a decision not to, when
on vacation, stay in one place for more than 2 to 3
Uranus is the planet
symbolizing changes, novelties, striving for new
experiences and adventures. It does not tolerate
routine, steadiness and attachment to one place (
"Uranus cannot be attached "). If I wasn’t the one
to introduce changes, Uranus would do it for me.
This year I decided to
fulfill the astrological symbolic from my natal chart. I
spent my vacation (5th house) with a friend
( Uranus) in the country inhabited by Moslems (
Scorpio). I chose Tunisia, the second most liberal (
Uranus) Moslem country ( Scorpio) after Turkey.
Uranus is placed after
the 9th house ( foreign country) in the 5th
house ( vacations), which is why I went abroad with my
friend ( cusp of the 9th house in Aquarius),
on a vacation ( Uranus, the ruler of Aquarius in the 5th
house) by plane ( Aquarius).
my vacation ( 5th house), I met Marko at the
airport ( Uranus). Marko is an Aquarian ( ruler Uranus)
with Ascendant in Scorpio ( my Uranus is at the 8th
degree of Scorpio). Marko is a computer developer (
Uranus) and has been actively pursuing parachuting for
10 years (Uranus). He graduated from the Faculty of
Electrical Engineering (Uranus trine Mars produces
Uranus is in trine with
Jupiter (foreigner, foreign country), and thus he is
half Italian half Serbian ( his father was Italian and
mother was Serbian). Jupiter is in Cancer ( home,
domestic origin) which is why he was born in Serbia, and
the 2nd degree (degree of Taurus) tells us that he was
born in the Province of Vojvodina
since this Province carries the symbolic of Taurus.
Uranus symbolizes changes and Jupiter faith and religion
and thus, Marko converted into orthodox religion from
My biggest surprise was
when I found out that Marko and his wife lived in my
neighborhood. I immediately remembered that my Uranus is
in sextile with the Sun ruling my third house (
neighborhood) and Mercury (neighborhood) the ruler of
the 4th house ( neighborhood in which we
live). Both planets are in conjunction and placed in my
3rd house (neighborhood).
Uranus square Venus (
more partners at the same time, parallel relationships,
immoral relationships) showed its influence by the fact
that Marko kept telling everyone that
’’he lived with three
women’’ ( his wife, my friend and me). The
four of us were inseparable and everyone envied him
really believing that he had three wives. Naturally, it
was just a joke!
After this event, I
thought that I entirely fulfilled the symbolic of Uranus
and that I would not experience any more surprises from
it. However, it managed to surprise me again, making me
encounter two homosexuals ( Uranus symbolizes
homosexuals) in a restaurant (5th house). I could not
believe that I would meet homosexuals in a Moslem
country. They invited my friends and me to come to the
club where they were performing as transvestites.
However, we decided not to go and see their show.
After a couple of days,
our guide invited us to visit a restaurant where
televised for foreigners. The same transvestites
appeared as the surprise of the evening (Uranus). They
performed their show. All of a sudden, one of them
lifted up his dress, jumped on a young man who was
standing at a bar, and started to simulate sex with him.
When there is Uranus (homosexuals, transvestites) in
Scorpio (sex) in your horoscope, you simply have to
witness such an event. Uranus square Venus ( typical
aspect for homosexuals and various perversions) only
confirms it. I thought to myself that it was good that I
was not a man with such inclinations for I would have
probably found myself in such an awkward situation.
After a couple of minutes, we all sang and danced to
Abba hits performed by those transvestites. I have to
admit that their show was great!
same evening I thought about Uranus at the 8th
degree of Scorpio and its symbolic. I tried to recall
all the events and people who carried that same
symbolic. I remembered that a couple of years before, on
my vacation in Egypt ( 5th house) I met a
young man, an astrologer (Uranus) who came out to me as
a homosexual ( Uranus) while we were visiting tombs
(Scorpio) of Ramses,
Tutankhamen and other Pharaohs. He was very
miserable and depressed because he had just broken up
with his boyfriend. He took this break up( Uranus square
Venus) so hard that he often thought about killing
himself (Uranus). I was personally shocked when he told
me that he was suffering from syphilis
Last year, on my
vacation (5th house) in Petrovac, I met an
electrical engineer ( Uranus) who worked in the Tax
Administration ( Scorpio - taxes).
After a couple of days,
I met another electrical engineer (Uranus) near the
Bojana. This man spent
several years in the battlefields of Croatia and Bosnia
where, on several occasions, he was in mortal danger (8th
degree of Scorpio) from the bombs which exploded (
Uranus) in his vicinity. Because of that, he was
operated on several times (Scorpio-operations).
The most powerful and
memorable impression for me was my vacation in
Montenegro, way back in 1998. My friend
Mirjana (Uranus) called
me suddenly and unexpectedly (Uranus) to go on vacation
with her (5th house) in August 1998! Uranus
in the 5th house and the ruler of the 5th
house aspecting Uranus brought me a sudden and
unexpected vacation. I packed my suitcases within two
hours and we set off to her summer house.
surprised me when she told me that our old friends, whom
we had not seen for a long time, were waiting for us
there. My friends ( Uranus) lived in Kosovo (Scorpio).
At that time the conflicts with Albanians had already
begun and since they were in danger (8°of Scorpio) they
had to move in with their cousins, to a place at the
foot of Kopaonik mountain. They introduced me to a young
man (their friend) who, after a couple of month, became
my good friend (Uranus).
In the beginning, there was
nothing indicating to the fact that my new friend
(Uranus), whom I met through my friends (Uranus), on a
vacation ( 5th house) would become a killer (
Scorpio and 8°) and commit suicide (Uranus symbolizes
As the days passed, his
behavior grew stranger ( Uranus). I sensed a
deeply-rooted inner restlessness inside of him (
Uranus). He was becoming a rebel (Uranus) without a
cause. Even though I did not have any knowledge of
astrology at that time and could not see where the
danger was hiding, my intuition told me that something
horrible was about to happen.
My friend (Uranus)
killed (Scorpio, 8th degree) his girlfriend (
Venus at the 8th degree in the exact square
with Uranus) because just before the wedding, he found
that she was his distant cousin. After that, he killed
himself ( Uranus- suicide). The killing and suicide was
committed by fire arm ( Uranus aspecting Mars which
symbolizes fire arms). He was a foreigner ( Uranus
aspecting Jupiter and the dispositor of Uranus, Mars, in
exact conjunction with Jupiter) i.e. his mother was
Albanian and father Italian.
I found out about this
event from the
Večernje novosti daily.
How does it show in my birth chart?
news, information and newspapers is, in my natal chart,
placed in its natural 3rd house ( means of
communication) at the 12th degree (this
degree carries the symbolic of Pisces which means night,
evening) of Virgo (Virgo rules everyday events –
newspapers are published daily) sextile Uranus (a
friend, suicide) at the 8th degree of Scorpio
(killing, death). Mercury ( news, text) in Virgo ( tiny,
small), produced a relatively small, almost
When I started writing
this text I got an e-mail from my cousin (second cousin)
and her husband who is the genuine representative of
Uranus at the 8th degree of Scorpio. Spouses
of our brothers, sisters and cousins are represented by
our 9th house. My 9th house is ruled by the above
mentioned Uranus. My cousin’s husband Mohamed is an
electrical engineer (Uranus), and extremely tall man
(Uranus), Palestinian, Moslem (Scorpio) and lives in a
dangerous country - Israel.
On several occasions
they invited me to come and spend my vacation with them
and their family in
Bethlehem. As a Christian I would like to
visit Bethlehem, the birth place of
Jesus Christ, as well as
Jerusalem. However, the trip to Israel would
present a highly risky and dangerous adventure for me.
Uranus at the 8th
degree of Scorpio is also the ruler of the 8th
house ( death) and could mean the encounter with a
suicide bomber who brings death. Uranus rules
bombs and people committing suicides while Scorpio
represents death and Moslems. Israeli army often bombs
Palestinians, which presents even stronger danger since
I would be visiting a Palestinian family.
The risk, danger,
uncertainty, unpredictability and the surprise factor
would be my loyal companions on such travel. Uranus at
the 8th degree of Scorpio likes exposing
people to the most dangerous risks and adventures and is
prepared to jeopardize someone’s life to the extreme
for, what Uranus likes the most is to look the death in
I hope that this
careful Virgo in me will be brave enough to embark on
such an adventure one day.
