Uranus in Taurus meets Saturn in Capricorn

Coming soon, two heavyweights of the Zodiac will change places into earth signs from fire signs. Saturn will enter Capricorn on December 19, 2017 for the first time since 1991, and on May 15, 2018, Uranus will enter Taurus for the first since 1942.

Saturn is a personal planet that takes 2.5 years to pass through a sign and approximately 27.5 years to pass through all 12 signs, while Uranus takes 7 years to pass through each sign, 84 years total, making it a collective/transpersonal/generational planet, meaning it affects entire generations of people with its themes and lessons.

Saturn is our planet of alignment, big lessons, hard work and responsibility. It is often called the ‘Great Taskmaster’, and wherever it is, always indicates where the heavy lifting is needed.

Uranus is in charge of human progress and brings seismic changes and awakening.

It’s the original ‘upgrader’ and has the unmistakeable mark of genius and revolution. Uranus breaks the rules, allowing change to happen.

The earth element is all the tangible stuff in life; our bodies, the ground we stand on, how ‘grounded’ we are, it is embodied energy such as buildings and building materials. It is money, bones, stones, it is materialism and practicality and can also be greed.

Taurus rules resources of all types; money, the economy, land, food, agriculture, sexuality and our bodies.

Capricorn is about creating an honest structure from which to build, it's an acknowledgement of universal laws that must be followed in order for one’s life to work. It is tradition, rules, and doing things in the "right way". It is the keeper of governments, banks, and corporations.

SATURN in CAPRICORN 1988 - 1991

The most recent pass produced the fall of the Berlin Wall, (1989), the Gulf War (1990), a US recession (1990), the collapse of the Soviet Union, (1991),

and the Japanese stock market crash (1991) which created a Japanese “lost decade.”

That is quite a potent list.

Saturn enters Capricorn again on December 19, 2017- March 23, 2020

What this the next pass of Saturn in Cap may bring:

Great scrutiny and rigorous testing of our governmental and financial institutions by genuine, trustworthy authorities (vs the banksters "regulating" themselves), and subsequent dismantling of what does not hold up to the testing, so it can be rebuilt on a sane and solid foundation.

same frequencies". Nikola Tesla, born with Uranus in Taurus.

URANUS in TAURUS: 1934 - 1942

John Dillinger, the FBI’s Public Enemy #1, America’s first celebrity criminal, beloved folk-hero and legend, whose spectacular gangster run ended with his death, happened in July 1934, at the hands of the cops, just after Uranus entered Taurus.

The United States had just effectively abandoned the gold standard in 1933, which led right into the heart of the Great Depression and the Dust Bowl.

It was an incredibly hard time for materialism.

The Labor Day Hurricane, the strongest hurricane ever to strike the US landed on September 1, 1935 on Florida’s west coast.

The Social Security Act was signed into law by FDR in 1935, and his

New Deal was put into place between 1933-38. This was a controversial creation of new restrictions, reforms and safeguards on the money system in response to the Depression that birthed the concept of modern day Liberals and Conservatives. 'Liberals' were in support of the New Deal and opponents became known as ‘Conservatives’.

Beloved superheroes Batman and Superman (1938 and 1939, respectively) first appeared as comics, the colossally popular Wizard of Oz movie was released in 1939, and Fantasia, the inventive, and delightful movie produced by Walt Disney, tapping the talent of the best animators of the ‘golden age of hand-drawn animation’, came out in 1940.

Nylon (new futuristic=Uranian, material=Taurus) was introduced commercially in 1938 as the toothbrush, followed by the first women's nylon stockings, shown at the 1939 at the New York World's Fair.

But most significantly on September 1, 1939 Hitler invaded Poland and WW2 began, and a shocking display of world-wide fascism, and unhinged dictators were unleashed upon the world. It was undeniably an era of great uncertainty and shifting global realities.

With the United States’ natal nodes at 6 Leo/Aqua and NASA’s natal

Mars at 5 Taurus (opposite Neptune at 2 Scorpio), there could very well be some revealing around extraterrestrial contact, the mysterious discoveries down in Antarctica, or perhaps around CERN/ the ALICE collaboration.

As Uranus is technology and Taurus is the body as well as well as money, here comes big advancements in AI technology and virtual reality.

Futurist and world's richest man Jeff Bezos has Venus (ruler of Taurus) in Aquarius conjunct Saturn, and Elon Musk has his Mars and NN in Aquarius trine his Venus in Gemini. (Different versions of the same Uranus Taurus signatures)

Elon Musk "is a billionaire-inventor (Robert Downey Jr...based his

character portrayal in the movie Iron Man on him)

whose chief businesses are Tesla Motors and SpaceX, where he builds spaceships and has the contract to transport astronauts

back and forth from the space station. The spaceship is called Dragon."

Taurus is also sexuality and sex-robots are already in the media quite a bit.

"The gulf between “human” and “machine” is closing. Machine learning has enabled virtual reality to feel more “real” than ever before, and AI’s replication of processes that were once confined to the human brain is ever-improving. Both are bringing technology into ever-closer proximity with the human body. Things are getting weird. And they are going to get a lot weirder." -Daniel Waterhouse.

In the next 7 years this type of technology will take a much more significant role in our day to day lives, I'm sure in some ways for the good but let's not forget the cautionary tale we learned in the Terminator movies. And we have already had warnings about 'Smart' technology spying on us from inside of our own homes. You can imagine where this could go.

From the movie Ex Machina

Think economic earthquakes that will level the playing field and bring great opportunities to recreate something new. Technological advancement in money is inevitable (the rise of Bitcoin, cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology) as the old financial system’s house of cards is already on very shaky ground due to the intentional creation of an incredibly skewed balance of wealth, a byproduct of the creation of the Federal Reserve.

The French Revolution occurred with Venus exactly conjunct Uranus in Leo (Venus rules Taurus).

A financial revolution is coming.

The Combo

Saturn in Capricorn will make an exact trine with Uranus in Taurus from August 14 - September 14, 2018 at 2 degrees of the earth signs.

There will be a total Lunar Eclipse in Leo/Aquarius with Mars on the nodes and squaring Uranus, just 2 weeks before this.

This will be a time of major activation that will reverberate through the rest of 2018.

As Saturn represents traditional structures and stability, and Uranus is the great trickster who teaches us to progress through sudden change and chaos, the two in trine aspect will inevitably brings sudden changes to our stability, in order to help us awaken and grow, to expand our vessel of collective and individual consciousness. And honestly, with all that's at stake, it won't be a moment too soon.

Lastly, on January 08, 2020 Saturn will link up with Pluto at 22 degrees Capricorn. This is a big deal. These are the last 2 planets in a stellium of 7, including Jupiter, South Node Mercury, Sun, Ceres, Saturn and Pluto.

‘Empire’ better watch its back, because here comes the great reckoning.
