People With This Winning Factor in Their Birth Charts
Success can come to us at any time and is especially sweet when it is lasting. The birth horoscopes of a whole list of very successful people show the planet Uranus in the seventh house of their birth charts.
Exactly what does “born with Uranus in the seventh house" mean? A birth chart is the map of the sky at the time and place of a person’s birth. These people's birth charts show the planet Uranus hovering just above the western horizon. Astrology calls that point "the descendant" and it is a superpower point in any horoscope.
Celebrities with Uranus in the seventh house re-make themselves constantly, adapt to the times and to setbacks, take risks, and accept or create opportunities. They stay in the game and play to win! For example, Joe Biden was twice a failed U.S. presidential candidate, and then a vice-president to Barack Obama (another Uranus-in-house-seven person). Biden tried again and won the presidency in 2020. Germany’s chancellor Angela Merkel, a chemist, became Europe’s most powerful leader. Gwyneth Paltrow knew that when pretty young actresses age, Hollywood offers few or no starring roles, so she remade herself into a New Age health guru. Film actor Clint Eastwood became an Oscar-winning director. Rock musicians with this astrological factor include Bono and Patti Smith. There is no indication that any of these people is slowing down.
Then there was Betty White, universally loved comedic actress who got ever more famous before she died at age 99!
You can be any Sun sign and have Uranus in the seventh house of your birth horoscope. Uranus can be in any zodiac sign and still in that special sector of a chart. Because every birth chart has 12 astrological "houses," the odds of being born with Uranus in house seven are one in 12.
Celebrity Can Happen to Them Anytime
Are you not famous yet? When astrologers see Uranus in house seven in a younger celebrity’s natal chart, they predict a long and inventive career. Singer Jennifer Lopez has Uranus in house seven. She performed a spectacular Super Bowl halftime show with fellow Uranus-in-seven singer Shakira. Born in Colombia, Shakira recorded her first album in 1990 at age 13 and made a spectacular crossover from singing in Spanish to singing in English too. Super Bowl halftime would be the apex of most careers, but with Uranus in house seven, Lopez and Shakira will be entertaining for a very long time.
Are you a Uranus-in-seven person part-way along in your career, maybe approaching middle age? Keep going and doing your best. Your Uranus in house seven might surprise you. Some Uranus-in-seven people with time and effort reach their top level and then stay there, with no compromise. These include tennis player Serena Williams, Tonight host Jimmy Fallon, and politician Bernie Sanders.
Lightning rods for fame, people with Uranus in house seven can never be sure their best career years are over. First U.S. president George Washington was a successful army general “drafted” by fate into the first-ever U.S. presidency. Jazz singer Ella Fitzgerald only won more and more fans as she aged. Actress Carrie Fisher remade herself into a bestselling author. Yoko Ono, respected artist, married John Lennon, doubling the creativity of both. Whatever Dennis Rodman is famous for, he is still famous.
Uranus-in-Seven Is the Ultimate Influencer
Are you a gifted unknown? You could rise to rule the world like Napoleon I, or like English queens Elizabeth I and Victoria. They all had natal Uranus in the seventh house, and whole historical eras are named for them. You might become an immortal thinker like Sigmund Freud or Carl Jung, or a science pioneer like Marie Curie or Robert Oppenheimer. Your spark of genius might create a niche for you to influence business and media, like U.S. “omni-media” corporate moguls Martha Stewart or the late Hugh Hefner, or TV journalist Barbara Walters.
Sometimes a person with Uranus in the seventh is so accomplished that they win a place in history. President Barack Obama was the United States’ first Black president. Mozart and Beethoven are all-time musical greats—both composers are likely the top two in any classical music-lover’s list, and both had Uranus in house seven. Dutch painter Rembrandt, always in the top 10 of any art-lover’s list, made the people he painted look truly alive. That was 400 years ago, and we still wonder how he did it.
Uranus in house seven people are so fascinating we sometimes never allow them to leave the scene. Among these we might count pioneering female pilot Amelia Earhart, rock musicians Elton John and Keith Richards, singers Diana Ross and Grace Slick, author and filmmaker Yukio Mishima. Uranus in the seventh also works in reverse: Serial killer Ed Gein is consistently voted the most horrible murderer of his kind.
The most difficult thing is the decision to act. The rest is merely tenacity."
— Amelia Earhart, Aviator
"I've Heard Uranus in Seven Never Marries"
Each of these people had wildly different Sun signs, horoscope charts, and socioeconomic backgrounds. All they have in common is that one funny-named planet on the western horizon. There are simply too many Uranus-in-seven mega-celebrities for it to be pure chance. Check your own birth chart and those of your friends for that glittering planetary signature. It’s a cosmic signal to go for it. When needing a teammate, try another Uranus-in-seven.
The seventh house of the horoscope is traditionally the "house of partnership and marriage." In case you’ve heard the rumor that Uranus-in-seven never marries, it's baseless. Look at Obama, Ono, Biden, Curie, Elton John, Angela Merkel, and Queen Victoria. They simply didn’t compromise for less than an ideal match. The single ones, though, can have exciting dating lives worthy of the paparazzi, and are good at choosing business partners.
Sometimes they're glad just to own their own soul, and don't feel moved to merge it with anyone else's.
