My intention is to illuminate Occupy through the lens of astrology, primarily by giving it a context in time. What is the meaning and the role of the Occupy uprising in this most amazing of periods in our history, specifically over the decade to come? What does it represent in the overall scheme of what is unfolding and might come to pass?
June 24, 2012 is the “critical mass” point, the date of the initial partile pass of Uranus in first-quarter square to Pluto (exactly 90° ahead). That day, month, and even season does not, however, represent any “great awakening.” Rather, it is simply the first of the seven exact passes Uranus will make to Pluto over the three years from summer 2012 through spring 2015. Think of 2012 as the tipping point past which a Brave New World awaits and will unfold.
The Uranus-Pluto alignment that defines the 2010s is the most significant of all decades where those configuations occurred — more than than the revolutionary 1780s and 1850s, more than the convulsive 1930s, more than the turbulent and world-changing 1960s! The ruling elites will be hard-pressed to maintain their power as social, governmental, and commercial institutions lose coherence and break down. So they've declared war on the rest of us!
A string of Uranus-Pluto aspects and other outer planet configurations will cause global turmoil in the next two years. Challenges apply to all corridors of massive, concentrated power and the institutions that provide support and reap the benefits. Corporations and governments around the world are vulnerable to the profound challenges of revolt (Uranus) and upheaval (Pluto).
The decade of the 2010s will unfold as another lightning-bolt chapter in the recently accelerated evolution of humanity toward substantive change in how we live, work, and play on this garden planet.
On June 25th, Saturn made its final pass opposite Neptune, and that is very meaningful. Our collective disillusionment, social malaise, and the longstanding sense of being lost in confusion while sinking in quicksand are peaking right now after almost four years of Saturn-Neptune's scandalous revelations, endless deception, and fantasies polarized to realities.
