The Occupy Uprising: An Astrological Perspective

astrological forecastsBill Herbst
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?

Clarifying the Timeline of Change: 2012 and Beyond!

astrological forecastsBill Herbst
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 Ruling Elites Are Not Like You and Me

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!

Where We Are; Where We're Headed -- The Road to 2012

astrological forecastsBill Herbst
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.
