Personal and collective psyche transform as our outer planets pass through our zodiac. Uranus was our only outer planet to transit Aries in the 20th Century (1927–1935). Uranus in Aries brought fierce individualism, pioneering spirit, abundant energy, and limitless financial resources to facilitate bringing concepts to fruition. Uranus invigorated our individual and collective psyche through revolutionary technological changes. Here are some images and events inspired and symbolized by Uranus’s path through Aries.
Physics and astronomy created the “Big Bang” theory of an ever-expanding universe
NEUTRON was discovered
King Kullen was the first Supermarket in Queens, NY
Wonder Bread and Homogenized Milk were mass-manufactured and marketed
First Laundromat opened in Fort Worth Texas
Flashbulb was invented
3M Company introduced transparent Scotch Tape
Nylon fiber was invented
First plastics recycled in Britain
A German ophthalmologist pioneered the first contact lens
First drive-in movie theatre opened in New Jersey
Model A replaced the Model T Ford
First air-conditioned office building in USA ~ San Antonio Texas
Jet engine patented
Charles Lindbergh made first solo flight from New York to Paris
America was captive when Lindbergh’s 20-month-old son was kidnapped
Mao Tse-Tung developed guerrilla warfare tactics that conquered China
Leon Trotsky was expelled from the communist party
Federal government entered field of hydroelectric power with Boulder Dam

Uranus completed its eighty-four year cycle in the spring of 2011, turbulently returning to Aries to crumble regimes, topple demagogues, ignite cities, and fuel an Arab Spring that would spread across the Mid-East. Devastating earthquakes in Japan forever changed how governments look at nuclear power policies. We’re still dealing with the fallout and consequences. Protestors in Spain set the stage for Occupy Movements in New York and London. Osama Bin Laden was killed. His demise appeared on Twitter before it was officially announced by the Whitehouse. WikiLeaks raised our awareness of government secrets, conspiracies, and everything we should never take for granted!
Irrational interpretations of our second amendment have been adopted by extremist and fundamentalist ideologues. Armies of angry, confused, and frustrated folk with semi-automatic weapons of mass destruction are only a banana peel away from becoming nutcases with guns. The NRA, evangelicals, corrupt politicians, and partisan politics have laid the groundwork for another Civil War as Uranus leaves Aries. The Devil tempts and seduces his disciples to betray our minds, hearts, mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, and planet. Too many emperors, beasts, and frogs are clothed in lies and alternative facts and must be seen through a lens of good sense. Even a catastrophe may take many years and many hard lessons before real change is implemented.
Uranus’s unpredictability, along with blood, guts, and gore of war are a scary combo. Neptune in Pisces and Pluto in Capricorn can be noble and highly spiritual or poisoned by passion, devoured by lust, and consumed by greed, hatred, fear, and terror. We must shift our broken philosophical and spiritual paradigms or be doomed to MPTSD (mass post-traumatic stress disorder). The “Big Bang” is a tale of neutrons, plastics recycling, supermarkets, laundromats, homogenized milk, Wonder Bread, Scotch Tape, and the Model T. Why has the human race become a race against bad shit happening? Must we always lose what we have to value what we had?
