Uranus Entering Aries Changing The Dynamic Of The T-Square

In Uncategorized on May 23, 2010 at 7:23 am

We have already talked about some of the more progressive cultural events that happened during the last Saturn and Uranus opposition of 1964 through 1967, not mentioning the social upheaval and revolutions associated with that period, the Civil Rights Movement, Vietnam and so on.  Anyone  looking back to the 1950″s and comparing that time period to the mid 1960″s can see a huge cultural shift. During this Saturn and Uranus opposition we have seen revolutions, the people of  Kyrgyzstan sending their president packing, the recent revolt in Greece and we will probably see more.  We have yet to see any cultural progressiveness, unless you consider Dancing with the Stars  a cultural leap.  A lot has to do with the signs the planets are in possibly . In 1964 Saturn was in Pisces and Uranus was in Virgo, the planets have switched signs this time round.  Pluto the generational sign is presently in traditional Capricorn giving emphasis to government and financial structures, whereas in 1964,  Pluto was in the sign of Virgo giving resonance to Uranus.  Pluto in Virgo has a lot to do with our relationship to health and well-being and being of service to others.  Anyway we will probably see some significant cultural changes when Uranus squares Pluto which is coming up shortly, possibly the present Saturn square Uranus is laying the groundwork for that.

Uranus in a couple of days will move from the passive sign of Pisces into the cardinal sign of Aries, sitting exactly on the Aries Point proper.  Jupiter will also move into Aries on June 5th. These two planets have been enervated somewhat recently, not so much as in that they have been in the sign of Pisces but because they have been in the last degree of a sign. Furthermore Uranus and Jupiter on the Aries Point is one of the strongest degrees a planet can be on.  This will certainly change the dynamics of the present Saturn and Uranus opposition and the upcoming T-Square (actually at the time of the T-Square we will have three planets on Aries Points or within 3 degrees.)  Whereas Saturn has had the upper  hand in the present opposition, Uranus on the Aries point conjunct Jupiter will now have the upper hand.  This will also give the opposition a lot more energy, usually the last pass of a opposition is the weakest since we have accommodated its energies by that time, but this is basically a new opposition.  Aquarius and Aquarius ascendants should be going through some form of transformation as their ruling planet changes signs.  Also Aries natives will have electric Uranus and expansive Jupiter transiting their sign.


Saturn Opposing Uranus, Let The Freak Flags Fly

Now that we are in the thick of Saturn opposing Uranus what should we do, or what is the best way to take advantage of these opposing energies.  Saturn is the task master, your responsibility, in a sense your foundation, or the foundation you have built up till now.  Uranus is your individuality, your sense of freedom, the uniqueness that you bring into this world. When these two planets collide , it is best to err on the side of Uranus, otherwise there results  a sort of stalemate.  The stalemate creates a sense of boredom, tediousness, where the status quo suffocates. People with this aspect in their natal charts have to revolutionize their lives from time to time to prevent their lives from becoming stagnant.  They have to break through to the other side in other words, to build a new foundation. This is the aspect of revolts and revolutions, people who are trying to create something better for themselves.  Saturn and Uranus sometimes bring about a silent revolution, such as in the case of the Obama presidency, elected on the exact degree of Saturn opposing Uranus.  This time around Saturn is opposing Uranus five times, one which we are previously in, the next occurring on July 26,2010,where it will be one aspect of a potent T-square.  The last time a similar aspect occurred was in 1965, 1966 and 1967.   Here are some of the happenings that occurred.

The Beatles released,”Revolver” and recorded  “Sgt.Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.”

Bob Dylan released “Highway 61 Revisited.”

Grace Jones sang for the first time on stage with Jefferson Airplane, and debuts at the Matrix in San Francisco.

The Human Be-In In San Francisco”s Golden Gate Park occurred.

HAIR opens at the New York Shakespeare Festival in Central Park.

Big Brother and the Holding Company Formed with Janis Joplin as their lead singer ushering in the psychedelic music scene.

Jimi Hendrix and The Doors release their first albums.

Women wore mini skirts and took off their bra’s.

The Black Panthers Formed

Andy Warhol designed the famous cover for The Velvet Underground and Nico, the bands debut album.

John and Yoko met.

From the look of things we are still in the grips of the status quo.

“We are here to make a better world. No amount of rationalization or blaming can preempt the moment of choice each of us brings to our situation here on this planet.  The lesson of the 60’s is that people who cared enough to do right could change history.

We didn’t end racism but we ended legal segregation.

We ended the idea that you could send half- a- million soldiers around the world to fight a war that people do not support.

We ended the idea that women are second-class citizens.

We made the environment an issue that couldn’t be avoided.

The big battles that we won cannot be reversed.  We were young, self-righteous, reckless  hypocritical,  brave, silly, headstrong and scared half to death.

And we were right.”      Abbie Hoffman
