What is Uranian astrology? – Midpoint – Transneptunian Planets – Alfred Witte

The Uranian system of astrology is really
our most advanced and evolved system of astrology to date. It was developed in the early 20th
century by a group of astrologers and led by Alfred Witte who was really instrumental
in cleaning up astrology and shifting it into this new paradigm that is the Uranian system.
Now on first inspection the Uranian system seems to be this really high tech system of
precision, which it is, but perhaps the more profound enhancement to astrology is in its
ability to reveal patterns, to really illuminate the storyline of an individual in terms of
their operation systems, in terms of their consciousness, in terms of their souls journey.
Let’s take a look at some of the history as well as this three dimensional picture that
is the Uranian system. Alfred Witte was a renowned German astrologer
and a member of the Kepler Circle. The Kepler Circle was a group of avante guarde astrologic
minds whose main purpose was to clean up and evolve astrology base on the groundwork layed
by Johan Kepler. Now up until that time the methods for charting the sky had been fairly
crude, going from the advent of the telescope to the pendulum clock, we were still in the
early 20th century dealing with a two-dimensional system trying to understand a three dimensional
picture. So Witte and his colleague Friedrich Seigrunn
were trying to use the traditional system to calculate and predict Russian artillery
barrages during World War I based on precise astrological records that they kept, but they
couldn’t do it. So Witte creates this whole new system that is geometrically based as
well as based on symmetry between planets. So gone is the two dimensional static chart
which most astrologers still use today, and in was the moveable dial, and with the moveable
dial he can now reference any plane or point he would like and then when he references
a point or plane he can see symmetrical arrangements, that is, things that are equidistant to that
point that gives us even more information about the point in question. So all these
tools and techniques were really a major breakthrough for the time.
Let�s go back to the battle front. So with the dial Witte and Seigrunn were now beginning
to accurately time the bombardments with amazing precision, but perhaps the equally important
discovery Witte had made was that he started to notice unoccupied points on the dial that
were repeatedly being activated when things would happen in the environment. And so after
years of proofing he aptly named these spots Hades and Cupido. These points are referred
to a Transneptunian planets in the Uranian system.
The Transneptunian planets are actually hypotheticals. The physical bodies have never been discovered
but they are “points of energy” that have been proofed over years. There are eight Transneptunian
planets in all, the first two (Cupido and Hades) being discoved by Alfred Witte and
the remaining six (Zeus, Kronos, Apollon, Admetos, Vulcanus and Poseidon), discovered
by his students as they carried on Witte’s work with the dial. The Transneptunian planets
add a tremendous amount of clarity and depth to a chart. I often see it as “putting a magnifying
glass to the astrological chart,” illuminating already present patterns even more.
So why is the Uranian system so important and what can it offer up in terms of taking
a deeper look into our natal birth chart? I think in order to get a perspective here
we really need to take another look at both systems, the traditional (Western) system
of astrology and the Uranian system of astrology. Again, in the traditional system you have
the house systems which are the areas of life experience, you have the planets that tenant
the houses and the dynamic energetic interchanges between the planets and the angles. So in
essence you have maybe 40 to 50 pieces of information from which to get a cohesive picture
as to how a person is built on a deep level. The Uranian system of astrology is an energetic
picture which gives an infinite amount of information. With the Uranian chart we have
a movable dial, which gives us access to an infinite number of points from which to see
midpoint structures. Midpoint structures (shown within the highlighted pink square to the
left), are points that are equidistant between two planets, and from these midpoint structures
we begin to see patterns. Soon we begin to see these patterns repeating, and when patterns
repeat what we are getting is a glimpse into the person’s consciousness, how an individual
is built on a profound level. So one of the most important points in the
Uranian system is the Meridian. In the traditional chart the Midheaven is the tenth house cusp
and it’s the area of career, social aspirations, the mother or the father, and it’s kind of
as simple as that. In the Uranian system it’s the first point that we go to because it’s
a snapshot of the soul, it’s a picture of our consciousness, it’s our soul’s essence,
what we really want to do regardless of whether it brings attention and recognition from the
outside. The Meridian as Alfred Witter puts it….it’s
the “I,” the “me,” the “my.” So when we combine the Meridian with other planets, say Mercury,
and Mercury is how we communicate, it’s our thoughts….it would be Meridian/Mercury….”my
thoughts.” Or lets combine it with the Moon which is our emotions, our emtional unconscious.
It would be “my emotions.” So we can go to those midpoints and take a look at what planetary
pictures are descriptive of the person around that. So we can make any combination of any
planet or plane that we would like in the Uranian system. So as you can see the Uranian
system is brilliant at illuminating patterns and really gives a very deep perspective in
terms of the person’s consciousness, in terms of the person’s potential and their soul journey.
The Uranian system is an amazing tool for a rich interpretive experience, and I don’t
know about you but I’m much more interested in the story of the human or soul journey
and not as interested in the pieces, the parts and the traits, although the chart definitely
encompasses those. Because once we have a story, it always sparks a dialogue and we
can begin to talk about what keeps us from our abundance, perhaps the patterns that we
get into, so we can begin to make some really great choices in our lives. I encourage you
to watch my other videos on specifics of the Uranian system, which are the Transneptunians,
where we’ll take a deeper look at those planets, their cultural archetypes and how they might
in your personal birth chart.

    Oh wow i love astrology n consider myself fairly knowledgeable "student" but ur are blowing my mind!! i never heard of Uranian Astrology but im very intrested n ready to learn. so im subcribing to ur channel n thank u for sharing ur knowledge. i think i love you :')

    Absolutely on the story. It is the connections in between that fascinate and allow leaps of understanding! I would love to learn this system, and will make that my focus now. To echo previous commenters, thank you very much for illuminating us! x

  • Courtney P says:

    Thank you so much for your videos…i very much enjoy watching them. I was wondering if i might possibly get you to take a look at my chart. Ive never been able to find a chart like mine before and i have a hard time trying to interpret it. 07/25/1980 @ 08:06 pm in greensboro nc…you see, my 12th and 1rst are duplicated with Aquarius encapsulated in my first along with my south node. Sun intercepted in the 7th a long with my north node. Midheaven scorpio conjunct uranus stationed 21 deg. Scorpio…mars saturn jupiter in 8th house. Ruler of the 8th in the 6th ruler of the 6th in the 12moon pluto in the 9th and neptune retrograde in 11th venus quincunx uranus from the 5th and in opposition to neprune. What would my chart ruler be…saturn or uranus? Where could i go to understand my chart better? Thank u for your time.

    That was a nice introduction! Thank you. I have found that the Uranus is in 10 aspects on my natal chart. I was searching for that but now I met a whole new world.
