There also have been periods of revolution, illustrated by the U.S. Declaration of Independence in 1776, the French Revolution in 1789, and the nearly deposed British Monarchy in 1831. In more recent years, when the conjunction occurred in 1968-1969 in the sign of Libra, Neil Armstrong walked on the Moon and we experienced “Woodstock Nation”.
The last conjunction of Uranus and Jupiter was in 1997 in the sign of Aquarius, ruling information, technology, science, and the principals of freedom and liberation. These principals are wholly embraced by our planetary duo, and resulted in solidifying the cultural integration of the computer and internet, both of which now touch so many parts of our lives. This sphere of influence extends beyond our desk and office time, to our spiritual, psychological, and physical experience. There has occurred a profound shift in how we encounter and interact with our reality today.
Jupiter, for better or worse, magnifies all it touches; its influence expands our horizons. Uranus brings unpredictable, unusual changes and upsets, meant to propel us towards greater truth, authenticity, and freedom. In Aries, the first sign of the tropical zodiac, the Ram leads with the courage to blaze new trails in the direction of personal freedom and individual rights. Circumstances are ripe for potential civil unrest and revolution, rallied in the name of personal freedom and liberation. Watch as Jupiter and Uranus’s divine dance plays out across the globe’s conflicts and wars. Each nation strives for its right to exist, yet each thread will trend to the oneness of our large global community.
This exciting rendezvous is strongly associated with human progress and evolution. It is about expanding our human spirit and awareness. It is about how to evolve and integrate our consciousness to include all other living beings. It is about how we can bravely move into the unknown, face our fears, and break free of the boundaries and ties which bind us to a familiar, comfortable, but no longer viable past - individually and collectively!
