Relevance in the Michael Teaching
The Uranian Body tells of someone who is not to be trifled with. Like all Exalted Body Types, a little goes a long way and this one is no exception. Uranian personalities are game disrupters and therefore alter outcomes. They often make us feel uncomfortable with the status quo. The Essence’s motivation is to be noticed, and perhaps a bit kinky. In their desire for attention, emotion can play a central part in their influence over others. They like to intimidate with sexual power or revulsion.
Ruled by the Gonads and the energy of undifferentiated sexual dimorphism, the resulting qualities may be very sexual or animalistic or completely hermaphroditic to asexual. Some psychological extremes are found with the Uranus body type, including: psychopath like Hannibal Lecter or extremely empathic but distraught dissociative personality like the Lisa Rowe character in the movie Girl Interrupted. John Steinbeck’s Lenny in of Mice and Men portrayed a man in Re-evaluation whose Gigantism intimidated all who looked upon him, but also made bosses covet his strength as a large beast of burden.
A humorous collection of Uranian body types were collectively potrayed in the TV show and movie The Addams Family. Every character was unpredictable, unique, and as the song said “their creepy and their kookie, mysterious and ookie, they are altogether spooky…”
Andre the Giant, Munchkins, Dwarfism, John Merrick (Elephant Man), Down Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, Arnold Swartzennegger, Missie Pyle, Marty Feldmen, Yul Brenner, Robert Duval, Lex Luthor, Incredible Hulk, Beowulf’s Grandel, Verne Troyer (above), Joseph Stalin, Angelina Jolie, Gigantism the condition, Ted Cassidy, Richard Kiel (Jaws from James Bond), Igor, Frankenstein’s man servant, Quasimodo (the Hunchback of Notre Dame), Gabourey Sidibe (Precious), Pan,
Humans like novelty or perhaps freak shows more often than not. The crowd is titillated with fascination and their stares move the imagination to wonder, awe, and perhaps a feeling of danger. When we see a Terminator or Frankenstein or Dracula we are thrust into a kind of terrifying paralysis we see the power of this body is unleashed. Each is might be seen as monsters.
The Astrological characteristics of this planet indicate a force that is chaotic but rife with opportunity for drastic and amazing transformation. In contrast to the Pluto body type, which is more hidden within the person, this type is more overt leading to a shake-up rather than destruction or transformation.
Much of what has happened with the world stock markets during the last 5 years have had to due to the dance of the combined “talents” of Uranus the Sky and Pluto the ruler of the underworld. Together they collude to show the foolishness of “pie in the sky” thinking while the foundation is crumbling.
With this energy in play, predictability falls to the wayside as the lord of spontaneous combustion and instantaneous mutation puts everything into free-fall. And freedom from restriction is the goal for the Uranian. Be careful of what you perceive as liberty, you just might get chaos or total collapse instead.
Attributes of this Body Type…
- Large and/or distorted forehead
- Beady eyes
- Deformed or exaggerated body (not necessarily ugly in anyway)
