AQUARIUS ARISE!
DXjOkdVUMAAvEPE


As an archetype of all cycles of relationship, the lunation cycle is a veritable key to all worlds capable of revealing the complex inner dynamics linking any two celestial bodies. Using the lunation cycle template to map the current Saturn/Uranus cycle reveals an upcoming moment of particularly Aquarian character.

LUNATIONCRYPTO

Contextualized according to the lunation cycle mandala shown above, the Last Quarter Square of the current Saturn/Uranus cycle is exact on three days in 2021: Wednesday, Feb. 17, Monday, June 14 and Thursday, December 23.

This trio of exact squares begins with a massing of planets in Aquarius as shown in chart one, below. Especially notable for that exact moment is the fact that the Sun will be located at the final, culminating (anaretic) degree of Aquarius. This signals the arrival of an important seed moment integrating a host of Aquarian values, not the least of which will be those related to the blockchain/cryptocurrency ecosphere which I have shown to be intimately associated with the current Saturn/Uranus cycle.


A CRISIS IN CONSCIOUSNESS

The Last Quarter Square portion of the current Saturn/Uranus cycle extends from exact Last Quarter in 2021 to the next conjunction in 2032. Simply put, this periodically recurring portion of the cycle is characterized by a crisis in consciousness. In his book
Cycles of Becoming, Alexander Ruperti elaborates on the underlying psychological meaning of this crisis :

The Uranus transformation of personal egos and social class identification, and of habitual and heretofore presumed logical patterns of thought and action, should produce a crisis in consciousness leading to a revision of values and motives. This is the time to correct past mistakes and focus on the future—thus, one may be better prepared to meet the new creative forces which will be released at the conjunction.


What transpired historically during a previous Last Quarter Square, which came exact on Feb.22, 1930 and ran until the next conjunction on May 3, 1942 (with both planets in the final degree of Taurus), substantiates the wisdom of Ruperti's words. For, it was during that time (the "Dirty Thirties") that the world experienced what has come to be known as the Great Depression. The timing of that Depression varied across countries but for most, it started in 1929 and lasted until the late 1930's.

Even with such a brief historical reflection as this, one cannot help but surmise that passage through the Last-Quarter-to-next-Conjunction sector of the current Saturn/Uranus cycle will be fraught with challenging economic conditions since not much has changed fundamentally with the underlying structure of the banking system worldwide. However, the unexpected arrival of Bitcoin and blockchain technology on the global financial scene, changes all of that. It presents the prospect of truly fundamental change in the global financial system and it is my hope that astrological timing factors revealed here will be of service to the many people who rise to the challenge of implementing for themselves, the global, peer-to-peer version of electronic cash that is Bitcoin, the people's money.

The crisis in consciousness now occurring throughout the world community can be viewed as a necessary aspect of a much larger evolutionary process that is bringing humanity into a new era described cosmologically as the Age of Aquarius. Changes in the financial system of the world represent only a portion of the revolution in human awareness that is upon us. With this broader view in mind, we turn now to an expanded symbolic evocation of the meaning of the Last Quarter Saturn/Uranus event featured here.

Our exploration features the three moments in 2021 when Saturn and Uranus come into exact square alignment: February 17, June 14, and December 23. For illustration purposes, I have created astrological charts for high noon (Intense Noon) at the exact geographical co-ordinates of the Pyramid of the Sun at Teotihuacan, Mexico.

In keeping with the planetary scale of the Last Quarter Moment, the charts offered here represent a universalized, collective viewpoint. However, one way to personalize that viewpoint is to simply use the same date and time to construct a chart for one's current locale as this procedure will reveal the unique matrix of houses pertinent to that location.

THE SABIAN SYMBOLS

Produced in 1925 by clairvoyant Elsie Wheeler in cooperation with astrologer Marc Edmund Jones, the Sabian Symbols provide precise symbolic meaning for each degree of the zodiac. As such, they have become THE most popular set of degree symbols used today by both astrologers and non-astrologers. Aside from Jones' The Sabian Symbols in Astrology: A Symbol Explained for Each Degree of the Zodiac, we also have Dane Rudhyar's Astrological Mandala, Lynda Hill's 360 Degrees of Wisdom and James Burgess' Sabian Mysteries. All three versions provide insight into the archetypal dynamics present in any astrological chart. Further, Gavin Kent McClung provides a comprehensive overview of the Sabian Symbols here.

Following is an abbreviated listing of the Sabian symbols related specifically to each planetary body featured in the following three charts for the Last Quarter Square of the current Saturn/Uranus cycle. Degree meanings in this analysis are drawn from Rudhyar's
Astrological Mandala. Note: As is accepted protocol, all planetary positions have been rounded up to the next whole degree.
