Moon Conjunct Uranus

Moon conjunct Uranus types veer between the kooky, crazed lunatic and the unconventional rebel. Some have a pathological need to shock and outrage, but they are surprisingly often shy and uncomfortable with the notoriety this outrageous behaviour brings them. Moon conjunct Uranus can be branded attention seekers, when all they are doing is simply being themselves. The roots of this seemingly bonkers behaviour very often stems from their upbringing. The mother was either a genius, a very eccentric individual, really spaced-out or totally absent. Whatever the case, the mother was just not the same as other mothers so these kids grow up feeling that they are unusually special or that they not worthy of normal parenting because they are freaks. Sometimes there is an odd mix of the two which leaves them feeling very insecure.

Another manifestation of this is that the mother was more of a best friend than a nurturer, so that the child grows up too fast and sees or hears things that were far too adult for them. This can make them childhood prodigies or overly precocious. Some of them reclaim their lost childhood as adults, and are accused of living a fantasy existence. At least this naive fascination with life enables them to think anything is possible and they are often incredibly inventive, ingenious and imaginative. Moon conjunct Uranus can also describe a shock to the infant at a very vulnerable stage in their development, this can leave them feeling rather unhinged. These individuals come across as exciting, electric and quite chaotic unless they have more stabilizing factors in their chart. Both the Moon and Uranus are fluctuating and changeable, their emotions often change in a flash.

David Icke is a great example of the strange childhood, shy misfit and controversy this placement can bring. David’s upbringing was of such poverty that he was told to hide by his mother when the rent was due, except she never explained they were hiding from the landlord they owed money to and not the boogie man… Instead young David would cower under the bed not knowing why this strange man was knocking and peering menacingly through their windows. Icke says he still gets a shock (Uranus) if someone knocks at his front door (Moon). At school he was a loner, nervous and shy to the point he used to feel faint at assemblies. As a footballer and then sports reporter he had a period of conventionality, but that was only until his enlightening experience in 1991. After this episode he constaintly wore turquoise, allegedly said he was the son of god and then was publicly ridiculed for saying so on the Wogan show in front of millions of viewers. The eccentricities continue, he is famous worldwide for “out there” conspiracy theory and lizards.

  1. This aspect is THE toughest one in my chart (5 degree Libra conjunct Uranus 5 degrees) it is a trip is all i can say!! A lot of emotional detachment but yet very intense feelings, laughing so hard one minute that I cry and tears are streaming down my face to crying the next. I have a really dark & keen sense of humor (insane humor is a good aspect of it @ least in libra i guess as i don’t have earth/fire/water moon)
    Well my Mother is extraordinarily unconventional, she makes her living in astrology, tarot, & spiritual healer/counselor (for over 25 years too i might add) & has never followed a so called traditional path. We are so not close though! Also, she treated me just like a younger sister & still to this day I feel that way! She regularly confided her personal problems and up and down frustrations and emotions with me all through out my whole childhood/teenage years to me (like I was a was weird)!! father & her boyfriends/husbands. (sigh)!!. Also, there was great trauma from my childhood of birth to 5 years old especially (although there was even heavier emotional trauma to deal with from 12-18 while @ home). so that feeling of keeping people close & pushing them away (like you care but you just turn it off, I dont know it’s hard to explain) ‘s kind of a seriously constant theme. Sorry, didn’t mean to write a book, just wanted to share with you. :-)

    • I have a lose conjunction of 8 degrees orb. My mom is both genius and crazy. I see the emotional extremes. I detach not because I don’t feel, but because I feel too much I can’t stand it! Libra moon libra uranus libra jupiter, libra south node!

  2. My mother was not mean, but she was not a nurturer with me. She was emotionally distant. As I had a younger sibling who was physically handicapped, I didn’t get much attention from her and was pretty much left on my own. I loved my M intensely and always craved her approval and affection. Even now…I’m pushing 70 and she’s 96, I’m bothered by her emotional detachment. My Moon is cnj. Uranus in Tropical Gemini/Sidereal Taurus in the 12th house. Our relationship is based mostly on discussing books, movies, TV shows, world events…nothing intimate. I should add that she’s highly educated and worked as a librarian at a prestigious university.

  3. Hi Lisa, I had to reply to you as I’m a Scopio moon conjunct uranus in Libra too and I can completely relate to being extremely shy as a child and well into adulthood, and also the feeling that I don’t belong anywhere which I still struggle with. Very interesting stuff and all the best to you : )

  5. I have my moon conjunct Uranus in Leo, 9th House. My mother was a narcissist and a sadist, possiblly stemming from her father being a stern, strict Capricorn. I got abuse from her and my father, whose father was also a Capricorn Interesting that I have my sun conjunct Saturn in the first house of Sag. Of course as a kid, you are made to think it’s your fault. Just figured it all out in the past 5 years and I am working on it….as I’ve attracted abusers thoughout my life and I’ve been frightened of being anything more than friends with women.

    I am using the Louise Hay affirmation of “I release the pattern in me that has attracted abuse into my life.”

    I expect that things will be awesome going into the future!
