Uranus in the 3rd house - Madness and Magic
“Every now and then a man’s mind is stretched by a new idea or sensation, and never shrinks back to its former dimensions.”
― Oliver Wendell Holmes Sr.
The third house Uranus brain is the image of synapses tangled in neon lights that spiral into outer space. Thoughts are wrapped around a channel that catches any idea circulating and fuse tremendous intuition with rationality and imagination. The third house Uranus person does not think outside the box. In fact, the concept of ‘the box’, or a definition of thought altogether is inconceivable. Uranus is electrifying, unpredictable, and genius. The third house astrologically relates to immediate perception, communication, and learning. Maybe the mind is difficult to control and rebels against itself. It may reign in on such profound knowledge that the intellect is forced to catch up. Ideas crackle into consciousness like a lightning bolt over the sea. And these ideas are postcards from the future, innovations that serve humanity and bring forth a new shining light. The individual’s vision of the world is upside down, colourful, kooky, and a little bonkers.
The third house is the astrological home of early education. Because Uranus is wild and unruly, maybe the individual experienced disturbance during his earliest schooling days. He could have been rebellious, defiant, erratically present, or lonely. Teachers may have been challenged and inspired by the individual, but he was too easily unfocused or uncooperative. Maybe he was hard to control or perceived as unusual, he could have shown signs of learning disorder. However, the brilliance of Uranus shatters the laws of logic as we know them. The individual may find it difficult to shape his mind into the confines of mainstream education. While he expresses as distracted, his attention is tuned into a higher dimension of consciousness. It’s like he is too clever to be graded or focused into curriculum. He is alert, awakened, and acutely intelligent. When he is not mentally challenged that brilliant mind cannot inflame and spindle its creative genius. The individual may learn better in solitude, without regulation or limitation. There tends to be unusual and exceptional mental talents that cannot be trained or expressed on command. Maybe he has an eerie ability to remember profound dates in history. Or he can perform an ultra difficult maths equation in a moment. Curiosity is the compass that leads the individual to climb every bookshelf, swim through every chemistry set, and read every wikipedia page. He wants to understand as much about the universe as possible. There could be a tremendous flair for astrology or metaphysical disciplines. He just has to find his genius, and there is a rapturous amazement at the brilliant intelligence of everyday life. The formula in nature, the design of the sky.
Siblings and neighbours are indicated by the third house. Maybe the individual has a strange relationship with siblings, they could be unusual, distant, or remain absent for long periods. The mind with Uranus in the third relates to science and invention. Albert Einstein was born with Uranus in the third house. He described his thinking as being similar to the intuition and fantasy involved in poetry, “It’s the same for a man of science.” he explained “It
is a sudden illumination, almost a rapture. Later, to be sure,
intelligence analyzes and experiments confirm or invalidate the
intuition. But initially there is a great forward leap of the
imagination.” It’s like the mind with Uranus in the third can really dance across constellations and play with thoughts from new horizons. The individual may express obscurely in conversation, maybe even confusing, scattered, or vague. It is important for him to share his opinions and have the opportunity to exchange ideas with others. Although he may fear being outcasted for his thoughts, the third house is a close Gemini community that relishes in bouncing brainwaves back and forth. Because Uranus instigates abrupt change and reversal, the individual may frequently redesign his opinions, beliefs, and conceptions. It is likely these changes will be influenced by the recent experiences in his immediate environment. The information Uranus in the third comes to know releases like a sudden shockwave that blows the particles of intuition, equation, inspiration, ingenuity, and creativity throughout the whole body. Uranus in the third have really thought it all - forward, backward, sideways, into the past, future, and infinite star stuff, riding lightning bolts into galaxies of idea electricity.
