These particular individuals possess the energy of the outer planets which are Uranus through Pluto. Individuals with heavy Uranus through Pluto energy function differently than others as they tend to have a unique view of their life experience and a different approach to the world.

The Importance of the Outer Planets
In order to learn more about the outer planet people, it is first necessary to know about the importance of the outer planets. In astrology, the outer planets hold different energy than those planets that are closer to the sun. The outer planets are those planets located after Saturn, and they include Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto. Saturn along with the asteroid Chiron are very important in the evolutionary process. Saturn is the planet that teaches us lessons while the asteroid Chiron helps us deal with our own woundedness. It is only through reaching the maturation of the energies associated with both Saturn and Chiron that we are able to access the energy of the outer planets Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto.
Being an Outer Planet Person
So, what’s it like to be an outer planet person? Well…pretty far out, and yes, the pun is intended. Outer planet people often feel different from the collective depending on which outer planet is highlighted. Outer planet people are identified by highlighted planetary energies in the signs of Aquarius, Pisces, or Scorpio or their applicable rulers Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto.
Consider the experience of being ruled by Uranus (as an Aquarian), Neptune (as a Pisces), and Pluto (as a Scorpio).
The Uranian often feels like an alien never really belonging to this planet. Although the Uranian is the humanitarian, there is often this feeling of loving humanity but not liking people much. This is the energy that requires mental evolutionary leaps as Aquarius, the ruler of Uranus, is an air sign.
The Neptunian holds the energy of transcendence. It is the experience of moving beyond the physical, and it can often be very difficult for this energy to focus on reality. This is the energy that is preparing to end this physical experience. Thus, the focus on releasing this experience to reconnect to Oneness.
The Plutonian focuses on transformation. As the ruler of Scorpio, there is a constant need for growth and transformation. In many ways, Plutonian energy is motivated to move beyond the old in order to reach higher levels of itself. This can result in living several lifetimes in one lifetime where the Plutonian eventually strips itself of all that it was to eventually become the phoenix that rises from the ashes.
The Acceptance of Being “Far Out”
While being an outer planet person sounds “cool” to some, it is not easy. In order to effectively hold and utilize this energy, there has to be a conscious understanding of what it means to be an outer planet person, and how to navigate the experience. Many outer planet people find that they simply do not care about the mundane things that interest others, and this is more than okay because holding transpersonal energy is about relating beyond the superficial. Those born with these planetary energetic signatures have a special mission to focus on their personal evolution in this lifetime. Ultimately, being “far out” is an interestingly exceptional experience that offers great self-knowledge and self-awareness when you are aware of how to use it.
