Big Events

Because Saturn traveled between Uranus and Neptune in the late 1980s into the 1990s, the effective conjunction period between the latter two is extended. The conjunction accompanied many watershed events such as:1993Uranus-0-Neptune2165

  • Tianemmen Square 
  • Collapse of the Berlin Wall
  • Fall of the Eastern Bloc
  • Unification of East and West Germany
  • First Gulf War
  • Internet and cell phones turn practical 
  • LA Riots

  • The Great Recession1966Uranus-90-Pluto2104
  • Obamacare
  • Climate Awareness Tipping Point
  • Fukushima Disaster
  • Arab Spring
  • EU troubles
  • Social netwiorks
  • Occupy Movement
