Saturn trine Uranus - A year of hope, shocks and changing expectations

Spirit of St Louis

This is an aspect that is pretty simple in it's concept and we have already had the first wave of it back at the end of last year as the initial connection occurred on Christmas Eve, 24th December at 20 degrees Sagittarius/Aries. The second of three hits happens on May 19th at 26 degrees Sag/Ari and the last one happens on 11th November at 25 degrees, so this is an aspect that will be affecting us all of the year in a similar way that the Saturn Neptune square did in 2016. Effectively Saturn is everything we know and have got used to, and Uranus is everything we don't know, we are intrigued by and are a little afraid of trying as it will pull us out of our comfort zone. This is not a tug of war though like a square would be, this trine is a transitional aspect taking us along a journey from one old state to a newer one.

I'm going to take you back to the year 1927, in particular the summer and autumn of that momentous year. Why you ask? Well Saturn Uranus trines do come around every 14-15 years or so, the last one was in 2002/2003 but 1927 is important as it was the last one with Saturn in Sagittarius and Uranus in Aries, the same signs as they are now in. So what was happening back then?

Well it was a time of technological firsts, a very typical response to a Saturn Uranus trine. To illustrate this more graphically than any other event at that time, television was developed under this aspect. The actual invention arrived in Jan 1926 when Uranus in Pisces was trine to Saturn in Scorpio, however moving pictures were demonstrated the next year once this trine had moved signs into Aries and Sagittarius. In 1927 "The Jazz Singer" became the first ever motion picture featuring the spoken word, Henry Ford replaced the Model T with the far superior model A car, Charles Lindburgh crossed the Atlantic Ocean in an aircraft for the first time showing that the world could be connected much faster than before. Transatlantic telephone calls were also first made in 1927

The seeds of the 1929 crash were sown in 1927 by a developing Bull Market based I think on the back of many of these new advances and developing technology. New ways of doing things created a bubble of false optimism which over time developed into a stock market rally that became unsustainable. Mistakes were made and risks were taken. The shock wave started at this time (very Uranian) was to have severe consequences two years later.

Uranus does not respect the rules that Saturn lays down and it is very interesting that the height of Al Capone's criminal empire was in 1927. America at the time was in the grip of prohibition with alcohol sales being prevented and through the back door Capone's network of sourcing and selling illegal liquor from Canada, where it was mostly still legal, flourished. This was exacerbated in the summer of 1927 as Ontario repealed it's own prohibition on alcohol sales. The American government immediately place immigrant status on all Canadians living and working in the US requiring them to have visas in response to the restrictions on alcohol being lifted, as many Canadians lived in the US servicing the illegal trade in drink. You see the comparisons between 1927 and Trump's impending dispute with Mexico?

Elsewhere in the world the UK were having problems with Soviet spying and espionage (no change there then) and expelled a number of diplomats from the country. Yugoslavia severed diplomatic relations with Albania, in China a military dictatorship in the North of the country lead by Chang Tso-Lin rose up to try and stop the communist spread of influence from Mao Zedong. Japan meanwhile were secretly planning a strategy to invade China and perhaps the world in due course. Nazism was on the rise in Germany in 1927, there were political riots in Vienna and a military rebellion was crushed in Portugal. A prominent and controversial politician Kevin O'Higgins was shot dead in Ireland, the Soviet ambassador to Poland was murdered in Warsaw and there were worldwide protests at the execution of two innocent Italian US anarchists, Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti. A war and uprisings in Mexico over religious rights occurred after the government put restrictions on the Catholic Church. There were natural disasters too. The great Mississippi flood of 1927 affected 700,00 people, a tornado in St Louis killed 79 and injured 550, an earthquake in Northern China killed 40,000 people. There was a new government in Turkey, the UK changed it's official name finally admitting that Ireland was now an independent nation, Iraq was created from British rule and the UK also recognised the sovereignty of the future Saudi Arabia.

The year 1927 was a year of flux and rapid change, the old was being swept away and new ways of doing things were arriving. Now I am not saying that all these event were of a direct consequence of the Saturn Uranus trine, but you can see some similar themes here to the ones we are seeing today in the world around us. Authority challenged by those wanting change, rules being broken, countries and peoples being liberated, people taking chances and a wave of optimism rising up. Remember 1927 was the height of the "roaring 20's" and the bubble that was created was to be burst just a few years later. Times are indeed different now and we as a world are recovering after 7 years of one of the worst financial crashes in history. Nevertheless, in 2017 I think we will see the shackles truly coming off and I predict a year of powering ahead. Don't expect things to be the same as they were come the end of this year. New statutes and alliances may be formed, old ones may be smashed to pieces. The world may be turned on it's head while Saturn and Uranus dance in unison. The trick will be and my advice to you all will be to control the rate of change in you own lives. Move forward but do so carefully, lest you as an individual and we as a world fall into the same trap as occurred 90 years ago...

The ultimate legacy of the Pluto Uranus square?

Hacker Screen

 

This is something for everyone to ponder. Peoples have always been speculating and wondering, I would guess since the Cuban missile crisis in the early 60's, that a third world war in the world may eventually happen. It was always assumed that humans would bomb each other into submission as in the past and with the ultra destructive nature of bombs these days humanity would likely be wiped out completely. We all remember the cold war and missiles being aimed at major cities, both east and west. Those days have thankfully calmed down, however I submit that a new way of waging war on other nations has quietly been building in the background over the past few years, without us realising. Yes, I think that the Third World War has already begun, triggered by the now waning Pluto Uranus square, still 3 degrees apart as I write.

Global wars are ruled by Pluto, they are destructive over a wide area and change peoples, nations and attitudes, and always they are started because one nation has invaded another nation's territory. However we all know that the nuclear weapons we have these days would wipe the planet out and that's no good to anyone. How then to invade another country and control it without initiating a mass destructive nuclear war? Through controlling the other country's technology, hacking, influencing elections and people's attitudes, unveiling secrets and controlling their agenda from your shores, so that you get what you want and you exert your influence over their people.

Yes everybody, in my view the Pluto Uranus square's final legacy before it finishes in the next couple of months seems now to have been stealthy underground (Pluto) technological (Uranus) global war (Pluto) via the internet (Uranus). The Neptune Saturn square has destabilized governments, and brought confusion in understanding what was and is fake (Neptune) and what was real (Saturn). Now as 2017 gets underway and Mercury finishes it's retrograde in Capricorn and Sagittarius, reviewing the administrative decisions that we recently made and being philosophical about it all, a clearer picture is emerging in readiness for the charge ahead of every single planet as for the first time in a couple of years they all start moving direct in unison.

Russia and China seem to be on the cutting edge of cyber war with the West appearing to be lagging behind, and the revelations now appearing the US in the wake of Trump's win are shedding light on a level of cyber intervention that was unheard of even a couple of years ago. Did Russia influence the US public's mood through a controlled spread of secret information on Trump's rival and in essence contribute to his victory? The view of the CIA and FBI seem to be that they did have some effect, however the President elect disagrees, in part I think because he doesn't want his Presidency to be de-legitimized before he even takes office. The debate in the US is raging. WikiLeaks somehow did get hold of some damning information, although they were and still are careful not to reveal their sources, and then in the wake of everything the American public fed up with being lied to and not knowing what to believe backed Trump who admittedly was clever enough to seize the opportunity placed in his lap. Back in Moscow, Putin, a former KGB leader and an expert in the art of spying on others, sits back smiling in the knowledge that the candidate he wanted in the White Office has been placed there. For the Russians, the pieces of the jigsaw have fallen beautifully into place.

In the light of the allegations now emerging, there is a very fundamental problem that humanity faces. How on earth do you stop another country invading your own space and controlling your destiny when as a world we are so interconnected?? The age of Aquarius has ushered in a much deeper and subtle problem that world has never previously considered. it will be interesting to see how governments around the world start to deal with it...

Mercury opposite to Mars - Releasing the pressure

cooker

Ok everyone, get ready for more fireworks tomorrow as Mars retrograde in Scorpio opposes Mercury in stubborn Taurus. This is going to be a showdown in the fixed signs between the planet of the mind and of communication and the planet of action and aggression, which retrograde in Scorpio is harbouring deep deep resentment and irritation. Mars is not happy retrograde in Scorpio as all that action and anger that is normally allowed to flow in the sign Mars used to rule is being stored up internally. It's like the water bubbling and boiling within a pressure cooker until the pressure reaches it's limit, and then the steam blasts out.

9th June

The opposition here shows potential verbal conflict as old wounds and irritations come to a head and "boom", an explosion occurs. The fixed signs indicate issues coming under pressure that have entrenched positions, neither side wants to move or adjust and so they just snipe insults or fire rockets at each other.

Tomorrow is going to be one of those tricky days, so watch out for verbal battles and disagreements and try and keep your cool. Mercury rules transport and the press too, so transport accidents may occur through too much speed, there may be sensational investigations that break in the press, or there may be fire and/ or mechanical technical faults.

Your Personal Horoscope for 7th until 13th June 2016

Horoscopes are written weekly and are shorter than in the past, but will be published more often. I am putting then up for both Sun and Ascendant signs so if you know both that affect you, you have two forecasts to read…

Aries/Aries Rising –  For you Aries, the week probably begins with enforced changes in your profession as both the Sun and Venus make difficult angles to Pluto. Power struggles may incur, but you probably won’t be in a position to do anything about this. Indeed this could be a feisty week as Mars and Mercury oppose across your financial axis and money issues or those of personal values hit home; the ideas others have may not be as crazy as they first seem. Towards the end of the week there are chances for new beginnings and opportunities for fun and romance, keep your eyes open and grab opportunities if they arise.  

Taurus/Taurus Rising – Fundamental differences in what you believe in or value differ from someone else’s ideas and views early this week, and you may have to back down or adapt your stance on things. Be careful not to inflame the situation by speaking out of turn, especially on Thursday, as tensions could rise between you and a partner. Healing energy can come from your friends and their input could be crucial in calming things down, so accept their help if they offer. A chance for you to be useful or to enlist your skills could arise at the weekend so don’t hold back in doing a good deed for someone else too.

Gemini/Gemini Rising – There is a fundamental personal change early this week for you Gemini and this may be caused by the indiscretions of others or someone influential putting you in an impossible situation. Keep your thoughts and words to yourself now and try to see the opposite point of view, especially at work. Health and welfare matters may also be prominent now, will you be challenged to be more conscientious about this part of your life? A social occasion with people you know may lighten the mood as the weekend approaches, so take advantage of any sudden invites you receive. 

Cancer/Cancer Rising – This week a medical, spiritual, psychological or even a deceptive issue may impact on a relationship and you may have to readjust your attitudes to cope with the new information that comes your way. This is a week of cut and thrust and your role in a team or group may have an impact on your individual aims, try not to dominate otherwise you may create enemies. At the end of the week you may instinctively want to stay in the shadows, but the reality of the situation may mean that you have to act in a more public way. Elderly or experienced people may actually point you in the right direction. 

Leo/Leo Rising – A change of routine or a break in the norm may be caused by the intervention of a friend or a collective commitment that you are tied to or it maybe that a hidden or upsetting issue with someone in your work environment that causes a huge adjustment to be made instead. In the middle of the week your home life may become public knowledge or a family discussion turns somewhat heated. The weekend looks much more favourable for you and after this week you will need to let your hair down a bit. Don’t let the occasion pass you by. 

Virgo/Virgo Rising – Might it be a good move now to be more creative and influential in your work environment Virgo? You can help restructure things on a professional basis that can help you get on better, plus you or others may benefit from your insight too. You’ll still have to bite your tongue if you get delayed in getting on from your duties or if your ideas are not taken seriously, you could also get irritated or upset on your travels or errands that you have to do. Can you keep a secret this weekend, I’m not sure that you can? It’s a time to experiment and have fun, but also to be discreet about it.

Libra/Libra Rising – This week you really can open out to different ideas and ways of doing things and what will be revealed may open out a brand new path to you. You want to learn and take on board fresh ideas and now is a perfect time to spread your wings Librans. Despite the openness that the planets promise, you have to keep a lid on your finances and especially on those who owe you and what you have to pay out, so take steps in making others know what’s expected and review your own spending patterns. An opportunity may appear from someone who’s close, so be sure to take up their advise.   

Scorpio/Scorpio Rising – Matters of an intimate or controlling nature can really shake things up in your world now and what you say and how you act will have a profound impact on others, so be mindful of what you do. Indeed even past actions and words said will have a direct impact on relationships and partnerships and in mid-week a battle of wits and/or words may break out in your life. Keep your cool to have the strongest impact. This weekend brings up a perfect opportunity to shake up your daily routine/fitness regime or the urge to get back to nature, so get on that treadmill and start getting yourself in shape, or alternatively head for the countryside and get out of town.     

Sagittarius/Sagittarius Rising – Partnership issues are plunged into deep and permanent change this week and you will have to cope with a new set of rules and/or values after everything is opened out to you. There will be internal frustrations and potential sacrifices that have to be made now and as well as that your daily routine will face new obstacles that will have to be overcome, work colleagues may pose matters to you that have to be dealt with. The only break from this tough environment you find yourself in will be this weekend when you can let go and free yourself from restrictions, so be true to your Sagittarian spirit and live life to the full.

Capricorn/Capricorn Rising –  This week I think focuses on matters of service and what you can do for others and in making yourself available you can also change yourself? You have a duty Capricorns to get on with the less interesting and mundane tasks, but sometimes it’s what’s needed to get the job done. Maybe in mid-week you can get more joy from outside of work interests and there seems to be a very competitive edge that will come over you. Don’t let that will to win overcome your better judgement. Your home environment needs a shake up, so maybe a good idea this coming weekend to get on with DIY tasks or making your abode feel better and more to your liking?   

Aquarius/Aquarius Rising – The urge to enjoy yourself Aquarians is very strong at this moment but will matters with kids, lovers or creative differences cause too much of a stir for you to really relax? A lot is going on behind the scenes and you may have to unwillingly react to it. Much may be on your mind too about your home/work balance and be careful not to speak out of turn, it may be more trouble than it’s worth to do so. Relations with neighbours and close relatives are better though and a surprise invite from them may turn out to be a blessing in disguise?   

Pisces/Pisces Rising – Do you relax at home now or do you socialise and have a good time? Your decisions now may affect a friendship or the membership of a group or club, so think carefully before committing yourself to a course of action. Your differences may be over a matter or principle and I would steer clear of poking a stick into a hornet’s nest, especially in regard to matters of law, belief or of racial terms, it’s easy to offend this week. You impulsive side may also come out if you need to purchase something. Your tastes are off the wall now and what you buy today you may regret tomorrow, so take your time and choose wisely; you may be delighted at what you eventually find.
