As of late autumn in the northern hemisphere, the world is about to enter an historic age.
No where is this seen most than by the coming Jupiter/Uranus Conjunction in tropical Pisces and Aries in 2010.
Beginning soon, many people can expect great transformations to begin to take shape in their lives and throughout the mundane world we all inhabit. I continue to forecast that the year 2010 will be seen as one of the most unique and eventful years of the early 21st century.
Few astrologers doubt this considering the signs already evident throughout the globe that significant world changes are ahead for the decade of the 2010s.
One astrologer who has written on the Jupiter/Uranus conjunction of February 1997 is the Scottish astrologer Anne Whitaker, whose April 2009 book, "Jupiter Meets Uranus: From Erotic Bathing To Stargazing,: contains a wealth of valuable insights from the personal to the mundane on the historic conjunction of Jupiter/Uranus in tropical Aquarius in 1997.
I urge anyone who desires a deeper look into the personal impacts and mundane influences of such important conjunctions to read Ms. Whitaker's ground-breaking book.

As I've written before here, the coming global transits of 2010 reveal that the world is about to undergo a long transformation that will truly usher in the 21st century and bring a close to the very bloody, but transformative history of the modern and post-modern era of the 20th century.
At the time of writing, the world is now experiencing the first of 2010's Cardinal Crisis in the form of a Saturn/Pluto square between the first 4 degrees of tropical Libra and Capricorn. The influences are seen in the mundane events now taking place in autumn 2009, and will continue into the early months of 2010 before Uranus re-enters the configuration to form a Saturn-Uranus-Pluto T-Square with Jupiter in the mix - thus forming the Cardinal Crisis T-square of mid-2010.
These energies indicate that a wealth of emotional complexity among the world's populations - from the personal to the mundane: tolerance/intolerance, wise actions/rash sudden actions, power struggles, revolutionary sentiments and innovations, international intrigues, and above all - transformations - are highlighted especially by Jupiter's conjunction to Uranus.
The mundane events developing touch upon many areas:
- The Domestic Economy
- Society & Personal Transformations
- International Politics
- Science & Technology
Jupiter and Uranus will meet first by exact conjunction at 0-Aries on June 8, 2010, and then, via retrograde motion, will return into tropical Pisces during the months from August 2010 to March 2011 - when finally, transiting Uranus will end its long sojourn and begin a new orbital period when it re-enters tropical Aries for a seven-year transit starting March 11-12, 2011.
The conjunction of Jupiter and Uranus in Pisces/Aries is a "marker point in history," as I see it and reveals that the Earth is about to see a transformation the likes not seen since the end of the Second World War.
Mundane events will certainly be a cause for wonder and alarm as Jupiter is the Business Innovator, and Uranus works as the Radical Disruptor - these modes of both planets will function as one in the tropical signs of Pisces and Aries in 2010 and 2011 clearly showing that after the conjunction, the world as we have lived it since the last conjunction 1997 will rise to a new level exceeding the expectations of many.
History is surely on the horizon for 2010 and 2011. One of the things we all can be certain about is the fact that during, and after such Jupiter/Uranus conjunctions - our lives will be transformed and we all will have to choose how we want to evolve as human beings into a mundane world that features challenges in the decade ahead.
One of my major concerns regarding the conjoining of personal and mundane events is the conjunction of Jupiter and Uranus to the fixed star Scheat that sits at the very last degree of tropical Pisces. This points to major catastrophes at sea as well as accidents leading to death around bodies of water, large, medium and small bodies of water.
While Jupiter will conjoin Scheat in 2010, and early 2011 before moving out of orb of Scheat, we will see transiting Uranus remain well within orb of Scheat from 2009 to 2014.
Scheat is a dangerous fixed star, and is well known by mundane astrologers for its malefic influences, particularly around bodies of water. I continue to forecast that the world will see major accidents at sea with global implications for the health of the world's oceans. Already, there are signs that the world's oceans are stressed to their limits.
From 2010 through 2014 - expect the oceans of the world to be a top news maker along with the world's weather conditions particularly from the transit of Uranus within orb of this fixed star.
In 2010, because of the nearness of transiting Jupiter in Pisces to Scheat, which sits in the constellation of Pegasus, the problems at sea will be due to poor navigation and misuse of judgment along with sudden changes in weather conditions.
Jupiter's transit in Pisces, and its conjunction to Uranus also shows a great many voyages being planned to take place in 2010 by great numbers of people around the world.
My forecast for 2010-2011 is for several well known ships and vessels of many forms to be the subject of attacks, losses, accidents, and lead to many casualties that could have been prevented with proper planning, and advance foresight.
The Jupiter/Uranus/Scheat conjunction is opposed by transiting Saturn in tropical Virgo in June, July and August 2010 - these months are among the most dangerous for those traveling below or over the oceans.
- June - negative
- July - negative
- August - very negative for travel over water
I continue to urge anyone who plans on spending time in, or around water in 2010/2011 to be extra cautious and to practice full safety techniques. Do not go out on the water without having lifeboats, life-preservers, and maintain vigilance when planning to take extensive cruise ship vacations.
It is also essential for parents to carefully monitor the activity of children around pools during the summer of 2010, particularly in the months of July & August, which have the most powerful transits related directly to accidents that involve drowning in and around public and private pools and around beaches.
The year 2010 into 2011 will be remembered as a time that changed the lives of tens of millions of people worldwide. The conjunction of Jupiter and Uranus will have released energies that will have caused people to seriously reconsider the direction that their lives have taken since the year 2000.
The Cardinal Crisis Transits of mid-2010 will bring to the forefront the need to adapt personally to the economic transformations brought about as a result of the Banking Crisis of 2007-2010 and the consequences for tens of millions of people and their respective nations will undoubtedly be transformational indeed.
The most stressing celestial configuration for millions of people has been the Saturn/Uranus opposition along the mutable Virgo/Pisces axis.
This one opposition has been the inclination for the massive changes now underway throughout most of the world and will continue into the year 2010 as part of the Cardinal Crisis Transits.
Most individuals under the global transits of 2008-2009 have been in a state of shock as their personal lives have been turned upside down as a result of the global economic crisis. The loss of homes, jobs, relationships, and plans for the future has caused an unnerving feeling for the future. Moreover, the popular culture fear-mongering of the year 2012 has not helped many people feel a sense of security about the near future.

The collective consciousness behind such fear-mongering does not help the misunderstandings and general lack of knowledge about the celestial events of a single day - in this case, December 21, 2012.
The personal transformations now underway throughout the world marks a time where each one of us can take comfort in the fact that humanity is evolving past the lost hopes and aspirations of the 20th century.
What is really happening is that when humanity does not share a common hope for the future, it often falls to those who would mix myth with fiction to shape that vision in their own ways. We have been witnessing this concerning the year 2012.
Astrologically, the year 2012 is significant, but not for the "end of the world" as we know it, but the end of an era of the post-modern world. The transformations are personal, but also mundane, as the world is affected by celestial transits that bring to a close one era, and begins another in the years 2010 through 2017.
The irresponsibility of those who cause alarm with "end of the world" documentaries, films, and Internet postings reflects a generation at ill ease with their own aging at the expense of the young, who are being taught not to value the future because there "isn't any future."
This is unforgivable considering the fact that the majority of those who say that 2012 is the "end of the world" cannot even note the planetary positions of any day of the week, much less read those of 2012 to state that the world will come to an end.
The world will not come to an end on December 21, 2012, that much is certain by mundane astrologers in the know. What is happening is that a major transformation of the world is occurring within the lives of people and is mixing with the negative collective consciousness of a generation that fears aging, and, subsequently death, to the point of not wanting the future of the world to progress simply because of generational angst and disenchantment with their own lives.
This has a detrimental effect on the world at large, particularly on the young, who should not be burdened with such dangerous fallacies like the December 2012 "end of the world" myth at such tender ages in their own lives.
There is nothing for younger generations to fear about the so-called end of the world in 2012. After the date December 21, 2012 passes, there will be a strong distrust and dissatisfaction with the older generation that promoted such silliness. One can see it in the transits of the year 2013.
What is occurring is that an aging generation that has long worshiped its own youth continues to falsely believe that there is no spiritual meaning in own their lives as today's seniors.
Nothing could be further from the truth. It says much about post modern society when an older generation cannot come to terms with the natural facts of human life that have been with the Earth from its very genesis.
The personal transits of individuals - mainly in the early degrees of the cardinal signs of Aries, Libra, Cancer, Capricorn, and the degrees of the mutable signs of Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces, will be touched most by the transits of the outer planets from Jupiter to Pluto in 2010-2012.
A Jupiter/Uranus conjunction can also be used to promote tolerance, understanding, and positive action within all of us - person by person, group by group, and nation by nation. The entry into the decade of the 2010s will be challenging, but only to the points of our own limitations, virtues and vices.
Human beings always have choices. We can chose to envision futures of transformative growth that seeks to learn the lessons of history - not repeat them - and to promote a generous, visionary and positive future where the wisdom of the transits of Jupiter and the innovations of the transits of Uranus are joined together to help all of us reach out towards the future with friendly, welcoming open hands and bright smiles on our faces - not with closed fists, disaster films, dark grimaces and grunts from a graying generation unhappy with itself.
We are the masters of our own lives. We can accept the limitations of our world with unlimited joy because what exists within us all is a boundless universe that can point the way to a future designed by those who know that happiness comes from within ourselves.
Sharing it with others means spreading that joy further on to insure that the future we make is of our own choosing and reflects a inner world that is at peace with itself - not at war.
The collective generational angst that has consumed the world for far too long is what is coming to an end - all you have to do is to look around to see the truth of this.
I choose to look ahead with brighter eyes because humanity has better options than to fake itself out because a generation fears something that happens to all natural beings on this planet - and that is growing older.
So, I am planning for a new era in a world past the year 2012. I know as an astrologer that the world will still be here in 2013 and beyond.
Those who make the error of believing that the world will end in 2012 are making a great mistake because the decade of the 2010s will lead into the decade of the 2020s, and it is very valuable to live and think ahead of the world era that is to come.
The future is ours for the making. We are the drivers of our own destinies, for the planets only incline - they do not compel.
