The Uranian System of astrology has its roots in the work of Alfred Witte, the founder of The Hamburg School of Astrology. His genius is credited with the introduction of a movable dial with which to examine a horoscope, the reintroduction of several discarded but worthwhile ancient techniques (such as arabic parts, primary directions, eclipse saros cycles, and planetary hours) and with the postulation of 'planets' beyond the orbit of Neptune. Hans Niggemann, a student, friend, and colleague of Alfred Witte, brought the concepts of The Hamburg School to the United States and coined the name "Uranian System of Astrology". The Uranian System is distinguished from other systems by the use of all of the following general characteristics: the movable dial, the Meridian house system, planetary pictures, solar arc directions and the transneptunian planets. The competent Uranian astrologer is also a competent traditional astrologer, and uses the techniques of each system to supplement the other.
