Saturn and Uranus are still slugging it out in the skies, as they have been since November of 2008. Today, April 26, 2010, is peak 4 of 5 in their ongoing struggle for control. They won’t be done until July this year. Here are some snippets from their argument:
Uranus: You’re in favor of centralized power.
Saturn: Absolutely. The people don’t know what they want. Someone has to be in charge. Someone has to set the rules.
Uranus: But what about when the people rebel? What about the times when I create revolutions? There’s no flexibility here for progress and change.
Saturn: People should know that their government is trying its best to manage things so the people don’t have to.
Uranus: When allowed its own way, government quickly becomes a tottering edifice of bureaucratic tangles. Haven’t you ever seen the movie “Brazil?”
Saturn: A ridiculous, trumped-up set of cinematically persuasive lies. I don’t like science fiction.
Uranus: I love science fiction.
Saturn: Only one of the many areas where we part ways. Please stay on the point.
Uranus: Which is?
Saturn: What government can’t take care of, privatization can.
Uranus: Now you’ve really lost me.
Saturn: Big business has the tools to handle problems government can’t.
Uranus: And who pays in the end?
A planetary battle like this has a scale that is both grand and small. You’ll see these Saturn-Uranus dilemmas playing out in news headlines that shout about public life and you may well see the same dilemmas playing out in your own personal life on a very immediate level as you struggle for self-discipline but wonder whether you are sacrificing your own genius.
“Does This Affect Me?”
If you have anything in your chart in 27, 28 or 29 degrees of Mutable signs (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces) or in 0 degrees of Cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn), yes—this affects you. If you want to find out if this affects you, send me your birth data and I’ll tell you at no cost. Just email me at Pandora at pandoraastrology dot com and include your name, your date of birth (including the year), your birth time as accurate as you can find (the birth certificate is usually the best source) and the city you were born in. Be sure to add the question: “am I being affected by this year’s Saturn-Uranus opposition?”
