disruption, leaving us to fall back on our own resources. It is where we can best connect with
all of Humanity in an altruistic sense. Uranus represents the flash of insight and the desire to

often the place in our chart where we are most likely to work with others towards greater
insight, reform, revolution or change. This is where we exchange what we ‘know’ through
research or experience.
