Something big is happening in this country. Some people are afraid. Almost everyone is stunned. The sudden release of years and years of repression and inaction is underway, coming out of the loins of the body politic. Years and years of building obesity, epidemic anti-depressant use, cultural decay, boredom, fear, burning towers, a massive flood, terror, threat of nuclear annihilation, and a history of domination by war profiteers have culminated in nationwide action to overthrow the status quo. The people are also crashing through 400 years of American history. Every revolution starts with inspiration and a religious element. There has to be an inordinate amount of faith to do what was perceived as impossible and go against a massive fixed force. Confidence is essential. Many people talk about Uranian transits as being violent and horrifically upsetting, but being a Mars-Uranus native, myself, with eight major Uranus aspects, I can attest to the fact that it is sometimes otherwise. On occasion, it's liberating and exciting. It started when the north node went into Aquarius, and Saturn went into Virgo to begin the Saturn-Uranus opposition, which will be exact to the minute on election day. The opposition continues until Jupiter and Uranus go into Aries. There's no getting out. The remainder of the Aries-Capricorn transit will be the nuts and bolts of the new working its way into the old. The wisest revolution would not seek to destroy the old, but would use what is good to its benefit, discarding what isn't useful. Pluto will take care of that. First things first. Talk about Uranus and the unexpected.
