Uranian Astrology is a relatively new science.  Traditional Astrology, the mother of all sciences, has been practiced since 600 or 700 B.C. Uranian Astrology began early in the twentieth century.  Alfred Witte, who is credited with its creation, took the best parts of traditional methods and added typical German precision, creating a new and unique take on an ancient tradition.  The Hamburg School, of Germany, has carried on Witte's tradition and continues to fine tune the method.  Now, Uranian Astrology is practiced all over the world, and is an elastic system that can be tailored to meet the specific, eclectic needs of modern astrologers.
      Uranian Astrology boasts several unique aspects.  Traditional house systems are not used.  Dials of various harmonics are used instead of a wheel.  Hard aspects are given the most serious consideration. Symmetrical "pictures" give meaning to aspects, and are said to be fashioned after Arabic Parts.  The most unique difference, is the use of eight Transneptunian points, or hypothetical planets.  The Transneptunians, or TNPs, were discovered by Witte and Seiggruen, and have been verified over the years through the study of many astrologers.
      The TNPs include Admetos, Hades, Vuncanus, Cupido, Apollon, Zeus, Kronos, and Poseidon.  They represent certain issues as do the original planets.  And considering the rate that new planets and stars are currently being discovered, the hypothetical planets may very well turn out to be astronomically measurable entities, before too long.  With the addition of a mix of asteroids, this system offers finely detailed, very accurate prediction methods, and augurs unlimited possibilities.
     The current chart is an interesting example of how  the use of a 90° dial can  display clear evidence of an event.  The chart depicts the exact time that two lovers met.  The inside dial is the woman's natal chart, the inner, her solar-arc directed chart, and the outer, the transits for the exact time and place of the meeting.  The native is a woman who was only involved in two, long-term relationships.  She does not fall often, but when she does, look out.  This is shown by the Admetos/Venus/MC combination, which regularly figures in important personal happenings for the native, including childbirth.
      A few important axes, shown on the chart by colored lines, offer telling evidence, without even resorting to further validation via the use of pictures.  The yellow arrow, and line is the Aries Axis, the first degree of cardinal signs, an very important point.  The green arrow and line, represents the Midheaven, arguably considered the most important personal point by Uranians.  The green line also represents the Vertex, a fated point.  The purple star and line, represents the MC of the day.  Red is the ascendant, and the directed Vertex.  The Sun/Moon midpoint, for each partner conjunct to 3 degrees, is in teal.
      Last but not least, the blue line, where the little heart is, is the sensitive point  representing the position of woman's husband.  Also, conjunct this sensitive point within one degree, are the asteroids bearing the same names as her former husband and her present beaux, a fellow she had to travel thousands of miles to meet.  All a coincidence, you say?
      No way!
      The odds against all of this being coincidental are astronomical. The employment of symmetrical pictures adds even more to the mix.  In the future, this chart will be replaced by one that documents a boating accident.
      Why does astrology work?  "As above, so below," is an extremely old saying that mirrors the thoughts of both ancient philosophers and modern quantum physicists who believe that our entire universe is not a collection of distinct, separate items, but that it is actually one, all-encompassing, organic pattern, where nothing is separate from any other thing, as described by Bohm's, "Unbroken Wholeness."  Watching the patterns of what is above, will mirror that which is below.
