I just stumbled upon another astrology blog, this one from Neil Paris in the UK. He has a great post on possible manifestations of the Jupiter/Uranus square that we are experiencing this year:
Religious exile – people abandon their previous beliefs, members of the church quit, resign or are fired, or change faiths altogether, or else abandon their faith entirely!
Educational exile – teachers do the same thing as the priests as mentioned above. Strikes or at least a shakeup in how the educational system works. Could there be the introduction of shocking new ways to teach people or more spiritual and metaphysical instruction (quantum physics, psychic information, Astrology etc?)
Racism – we’re already hearing breaking news stories of this on mainstream media (Uranus rules television, radio and the broadcast media in general) on shows like Big Brother in England where contestants got into a name-calling racist brawl. Our prejudice (Jupiter) is exposed as being anything but humanitarian (Uranus).
New Gay Laws – Uranus relates to the ‘deviant’ and the things most of society feels go against what it ‘stands for’. Anything that goes against the grain and is ‘different’. So homosexuality would fit the bill here, and since Jupiter relates to Law, we could see more challenges (since this is a square aspect of tension) and a greater push for more social equality and liberation. Uranus/Jupiter could see overseas (Jupiter) marriage or at least civil partnerships (Jupiter).
Could immigration laws be ready to be revamped to allow for more fairness and social acceptance? Here’s hoping.
Travel Innovation: new ways to travel – and more technology within travel (biometrics, eye scanners, fingerprints etc). Faster and speedier ways to get from A to B. Could this be the beginning of those 2 hour planes from LA to Australia? Or how about teleportation? Travel gets a little crazier so look out for diversions, new routes and perhaps more efficiency – but don’t hold your breathe, it always comes with a cost. Hopefully it’s not one of freedom or privacy?
Electrifying Inventions – some larger than life ideas, ideals and philosophies. Listen up for some big words, hotshot ideas and some ‘here’s the solution’ remarks from people who big mouths who love to spout hot air. Big words, bright ideas.
Illuminated Thought – the Eureka! Aha! moments of life. Some amazing intuitions that channel their way into our heads, downloaded from the great beyond. There are truly some tripped out ideas floating around now. Will you be the one with the next multi-billion dollar idea or a solution to a major world issue?
I particularly like this last one.
This Jupiter/Uranus cycle is still in the first phase, the second phase of the cycle comes in May with the wrapup in early October. The exciting expansion of Jupiter/Uranus will have an interesting effect on the contracting confusion of the Saturn/Neptune opposition that continues through June.
