Aquarius is the dawn of the year. We experience the pure whiteness of this sign in February, witnessing to the return of the light piercing through the heart of Winter. Aurora, the light of the new day, brings down on earth the ideals of the brightest stars. And with them the promises of a real revolution are announced. Liberté, Égalité, Fraternité.
Jupiter is the god of the highest spiritual ideals. Usually, in this zodiac sign it releases all their potential, fueling the humanitarian impulses with trust, expansion and optimism. Science and progress become the heralds of a new world, where all peoples unite in the name of universal values.
But is this always the case? Are we really going this year to receive an impulse in that direction? In this article we are going to talk about the Jupiter Uranus cycle. We are also going to see where we are at in this regard, as well as the repercussions for 2021. In particular we are going to focus on the role of Social Networks in the last decade to better understand where our society is going.
The Jupiter Uranus Cycle
In Mundane Astrology planetary cycles are very important to understand earthly events. If we take the slowest planets—Pluto, Neptune, Uranus, Saturn and Jupiter—we have 10 possible couples of planets. Each couple forms a cycle, which represents the unfolding of specific living archetypes on Earth.
Let’s take Jupiter and Uranus to clarify this concept. Every roughly 14 years these planets are in conjunction (see picture below in 2010-11). Jupiter is way faster than Uranus, so we can imagine the latter standing still, and the former revolving around it. It is no different than the lunar phases, but instead of having the Sun and the Moon we have Uranus and Jupiter. All this is happening of course from our perspective on the Earth.
As you can see we have several stages in this cycle. Every stage has a specific meaning. We can start from 2008 (sextile, in light blue) when the former cycle was ending end the seed of the new cycle was in preparation.Continue reading
