Uranus in 1st house individuals are looking to express themselves freely by constantly changing and engaging in new adventures.

It’s important for them to be left alone and do what they want because their independence can’t be in any way tempered with.

Unconventional, strange, adaptable, agitated, smart and highly intuitive, these natives can stimulate others to do great things, even if many see them as too odd.

When it comes to their instincts, these are rather based on impulse and sometimes inconsistent. Their psyche needs to filter every position of the planets in their chart in a very abrupt way, so they may feel like they’re accidents of the Universe, creatures who have been placed here to get by and rely on instinct.

Expressing their own thoughts freely is one of the most important things for them, so when saying something that bothers, they don’t really care about who raises a brow and who doesn’t.

It’s good their honesty will always have others know where they’re standing. Uranus’s presence in the 1st house indicates they may need to step aside from time to time, in order to see how others view life as well.

It’s not enough for them to think they know everything because some questions can be left unanswered and personalities need to be explored.

It would be wrong for them to assume their loved ones aren’t right just because they don’t agree with what they’re saying.

Listening to different arguments can help them see life more objectively. After all, learning is also about taking other people’s opinions into consideration.

When Uranus feels comfortable in the 1st house, natives with this placement are usually very open-minded as far as sex goes, and don’t mind hearing their lover’s fantasies.

They’re very interested in their own image, but also in the one of people that are close to them. Therefore, they give a lot of importance to clothes because they think a person’s style expresses a lot of his or her individuality.

Uranus in 1st house people need to stop being so excited and enthusiastic because discretion and tactfulness are the key to diplomacy.

Being more dedicated would also work very well for them. They should pay attention not to lose their interest in things or people as fast as they do.

While the planet Uranus inspires them to always change, they’ll get to do great things when sticking by their own ideas for longer periods of time.

They love to talk and to exchange ideas, but they may find it troublesome to sustain some of the solutions to problems that they have found.

After they’ve worked with one of their own original ideas, it’s very likely for them to just get bored dealing with the details because the next problem coming towards them seems to be more interesting.

This shouldn’t bring them down that much, especially if they’re surrounded by people whom they can trust, but if many count on them to do their job in a very efficient manner, they may face difficulties as a result of getting bored too easily.

Looking at a Uranus that’s challenged in the 1st house, it can be seen the natives of this placement have had troubles with their own image during their past lives.

The Ascendant influences their personality a lot, also in matters of how they’re seeing themselves. Therefore, through the Rising sign, people filter all the psychological functions that give them a correct image of themselves.

So as said before, Uranus in challenging aspects in the 1st house indicates unconscious memories regarding self-appreciation.

These may indicate that in past lives, people have had many tattoos or piercings and now the natives are so preoccupied with their image.

Therefore, in this life cycle, they may try to reproduce the way they’re seeing in their own unconscious. This can also be one of the reasons why they need to always be different from the crowd, especially when young.

It’s important for parents having teenagers with Uranus in 1st house to understand their sons and daughters need to look the way they’re feeling and that no one can change this about them.

If children with a challenged Uranus in 1st house would be criticized and ridiculed for the way they dress, they’d be very traumatized, so their parents have the duty to be gentle with them when it comes to this.
