The Astrologer’s Planet

Uranus is traditionally the astrological planet … At the same time prominent astrologers have not always had this planet pronouncedly strong in their nativities, and the excessive conservatism and love of traditional authority that has characterized almost all astrological students up to very recent times – and many even now – hardly point to Uranian rulership. Even at the present time one often reads “appeals to Ptolemy” which are as anachronistic as an attempt by a medical specialist to support his contentions out of the pages of Galen or Hippocrates. This implies that Saturn has much to do with astrology and its students. Further, as in all branches of knowledge, the mental planets Mercury and Jupiter are important. – Charles E.O. Carter, Aquarius, in An Encyclopaedia of Psychological Astrology

Neptune as well has a strong relationship to astrology, the planet of intuition, cultural aspirations, and spirituality adds to astrology the ethical, mystical and religious dimensions that make it so abhorrent to ‘pure’ scientists, yet which give it its depth, spirituality and personal relevance. – Jim Lewis, Gemini

It is certain that this aspect [Sun conjunct Neptune] is commonly found in the horoscopes of astrologers, especially of those who are particularly interested in the predictive art. I should say that Sun conj. Neptune is the commonest aspect in astrological maps. – Charles E.O. Carter, Astrological Aspects

Astrologers are usually associated with the planet Uranus but the true astrologer seems to be strongly influenced by Neptune and Pluto as well. – Jane A Evans

Vocational Guidance in Henry Niemann’s and Vera Sokolow’s Putting It Together gives “astrologer” for following aspects: Sun-Neptune, Moon-Pluto, Moon-Neptune, Mercury-Neptune, Mars-Neptune, Jupiter-Uranus, Jupiter-Neptune, Uranus-Neptune, Sun-Moon’s Node

Somehow, I can not fully justify the association of the planet, Uranus, as the “ruler” of astrology. It does not work for me. … The smooth synthesis which Neptune discretely reveals tends to suit the purpose and method of astrology, as I understand it. With a strong Uranian vibration, the interpretations could conceivably be erratic and shaky, not always understood by the client. What good is that? – – I do feel, however, that astrologers are Uranian in nature. Of course they are, – just go to a location where several astrologers meet. Never will you ever see gain so much Aquarian-type behavior polarising through Leo … – Philip Sedgwick

The talents needed for a good astrologer are both Neptunian and Uranian, because of the very nature of the field. Symbolism (the planets, signs, houses) by its very nature is general and pervasive, but the ability to crystallize the nature and effects of such symbols in any given circumstance is quite specific and precise. The understanding is Neptunian, the application Uranian. – John Townley
