Uranus in Aries and world revolution

Just a few weeks ago, Uranus entered Aries.
It will stay in this sign for the next 7 years.

The global set of affairs will heat a lot, with the revolutionary planet on the sign of independence, willful behavior and self-assertion. This is a time of marked change, irritation, unpredictability and defiance.

Uranus in Aries corresponds historically to a highly-charged period. Those such as the 1930s, 1840s, 1760s, 1680s, 1590s, 1510s, 1430s or 1340s.
  1. These were periods with great revolts, revolutions, national movements, famines and economic unrest. Examples were the American Revolution, the Revolutions of 1848 or the war of Peasants. However, some periods also had a tendency for aggressive nationalism and result in much division within countries and this leads to war, like it happened prior to WWII.
  2. They correspond also to a time of huge personalities that stir movement, independence, revolt and revolution. Gandhi, Hitler, Karl Marx, Georg Washington, Copernicus, Martin Luther, Joan d'Arc are examples.
  3. Finally, this is also a period full of inventions, technological advance and new scientific theories and fields of research. Examples are rocket technology, nuclear energy, distillation of oil, or the steam engine. Radical shifts in scientific models include the theory of Evolution by Darwin or the Heliocentric view by Galileo.
  4. This lively and erratic period also corresponds to times of famines and weather extremes, like the Dust Bowl of the thirties, the Irish famine, the great Russian famine or the Black Plague.

What is highly important is that, at this time, other outer planets are also in cardinal signs, which adds even more intensity. Pluto in Capricorn occurs prior to revolutionary waves across the world. The governmental power and corruption reaches a limit and it breaks down. A dramatic square between Pluto and Uranus occurs between 2012 and 2015. This is expected to be a radical and intense period.

The last time there were squares between Pluto and Uranus were during the late sixties and the thirties, both periods of great social agitation and change. The same applies for the early 2010s. Last time, Pluto was in Capricorn it preceded a period full of revolutions such as the American and the French revolutions, and the start of the Industrial Revolution.

Between 2009 and 2012, Jupiter and Saturn will also form a cardinal T-square with both Uranus and Pluto, which adds intensity and sets many events of change, year after year. And in 2014, Jupiter forms a big cardinal cross with these outer planets. Such powerful astrological configurations are an unbelievable omen of global change!

Uranus and Jupiter entered Aries in June 2010. This is the start of a high level of intensity, similar to the mid thirties or the late sixties. As Uranus progresses into Aries (2012, 2013, 2014...) the energy will increase even higher! These would be the most intense years of change. All sorts of inventions, revolts, revolutions and other big changes will begin to unfold.

The current global crises not only relates to the economy, energy and global security but also to climate change and environmental issues. It looks like everything is on the table, from nuclear weapons to oil, climate change and global economy. Even volcanic activities, an oil leak and the flu pandemic have caused global worries. Our society is not sustainable, and neither are people's behaviors.

A transformation of society, unlike anything seen before, is expected to manifest by the end of this next decade. It will take several years. Hopefully, the impulsive, impatient and often intolerant energies of Uranus in Aries will not cause any great war or dramatic social chaos. These are likely, and so it is our choice to avoid them. On a positive side, because the energies are so extreme, a much needed transformation of our societies will occur, whatever we do. Even ourselves, at a personal level, will go through big changes.

The word is "Revolution". It is the end of a "old world" and the birth of a "new world".

You can refer to my other to realize that is also a spiritual transformation, the so-called 2012 phenomena.
