To understand the concept of Venus Uranus connections we first have to go back into the past for a moment.
In the early 1980s a "new" approach of assessing major themes in a natal chart saw the light by the "invention" of the so-called "ZIP Code."
It was a method invented by Dr. Zipporah Dobyns (hence the name "ZIP Code") and further propagated by her daughter Maritha Pottenger, that made use of the so-called astrological alphabet.
The concept of the astrological alphabet is that astrology deals with twelve basic ways of being, twelve human drives and modes of operation that are all needed in this world.
These twelve sides of life are mirrored in the natal chart by a planet, a house and a sign.
So it is in the astrological alphabet that Mars, the 1st house and Aries all share the same principles (though they are NOT the same!). Venus, the 2nd house and Taurus also share the same principles and this goes on for the other planets, signs and houses.
What the theory of the ZIP Code or astrological alphabet presents is that certain groups of planet/house/sign combinations share similar themes.
For example: Mars in Libra or Mars in the 7th house share the same principles. The 7th house is in mundane astrology a Libra house (whatever zodiac sign is on the cusp of the 7th house in the natal chart).
This system has been enhanced by German astrologers who developed their own system based on the same principles but they converted the signs and houses to their respective planetary rulers.
For example: Mars in Capricorn becomes a Mars/Saturn theme because Saturn always rules Capricorn.
Mars in the 10th house too becomes a Mars/Saturn theme because the 10th house is associated with Capricorn, which is ruled by Saturn in mundane astrology.
Also, the ruler of the 1st house (in mundane astrology ruled by Mars because Mars always rules Aries and Aries is always the 1st sign in the natural order of the zodiac) in the 2nd house (in mundane astrology ruled by Venus as the ruler of Taurus) is another Venus-Mars analogy.
The more we find such analogies, themes or connections between two planets, the more this planetary combination becomes an important part of the natal chart and the life of the native.
To find out the connections or analogies between planets, we take especially into account:
Planets in houses are more important and powerful than the planets in the zodiac signs because they work on a more personal and individual level (we use the Topocentric house system which gives almost the same results as the Placidus house system).
When do we have Venus Uranus connections, themes or analogies?
In most cases, the following configurations are used (there are more though (!) to define Venus Uranus connections but this would lead us too far and make it more complicated than necessary):
When at least three of the above listed analogies or connections can be found in the natal chart, we have a very powerful Venus Uranus connection that will be felt and noticed in the character and life of the native.
What do Venus Uranus connections signify?
The Venus Uranus connection is a very independent one that does not like clinging too someone.
Most often, relationships are short-lived and/or lived at a distance.
As long as the relationship remains 'light' and does not become too formal or 'heavy', persons with strong Venus Uranus connections are able to maintain the relationship long-term.
That's why people with powerful Venus Uranus connections most often dislike a marriage.
There is fear for deception and the inability to live emotionally bound together.
The Venus Uranus connection is the opposite of the Venus Pluto connection in that Venus and Uranus don't like co-dependency and prefer a detached way of living.
While the Venus Pluto connection fears to be alone, the Venus Uranus connection fears to be bound.
The Venus Uranus connection needs lots of free space and air to let the relationship grow.
Distance only makes the heart grow fonder.
The more a person with a strong Venus Uranus connection lives in close and narrow circumstances with the partner, the more chances that there will be a break up.
Attractions at first sight are what Venus Uranus connections will experience many times.
This connection makes one very popular and well-liked. It's a charming combo.
In the most extreme case of a very powerful connection, they may avoid any contacts though and live a solitary life.
People with Venus Uranus connections tend to be quite cool, unemotional because their notion of 'love' is on a more impersonal humanitarian level rather than on a one-on-one intimate and emotional level.
They can be friends with many.
Most women with this connection prefer a rather short hair cut.
Venus Uranus connections dislike routine and are attracted to partners with irregular or flexible working hours.
They are also attracted to unique and very creative persons that jump out in some way (either because of their status, money, possessions, assets, ...).
In their relationship choice they want a partner who sets them and the relationship apart.
They don't want a relationship that is comparable with other relationships.
Though they can be attracted to people with powerful Venus Saturn connections, these relationships are most often doomed to fail because of the formalities, boundaries, obligations and duties which the partners bind.
Both Venus and Uranus love rhythm and this connection is most often the proof of the love for dance and/or music.
Also, it's a very creative and artistic combination.
The Venus Uranus connection is a very spontaneous one and people with this connection strong should not be forced to change their behavior.
They don't want to be pinned down and seldom use labels because their opinion is flexible and often unpredictable.
They will change if and when they see fit.
