The Saturn Uranus cycle has been described by some to involve changes in the weather. Saturn and Uranus take 45 years to complete their synodic period and have been known to bring changes to the environmental weather, political weather and economical weather . Saturn Uranus aspects tend to represent progressive social adjustments where Uranus is the “Re-newer” and Saturn is the “Tradition”. The Saturn Uranus opposition is part of the forty five year synodic period between these two planets. In November this year the first of a series of oppositions takes place so lets explore some previous times.
Saturn Uranus and Civil Rights
The Saturn Uranus opposition in the 1960’s was not able to achieve the degree of social change without the help of Pluto. In the sixties Saturn opposed Uranus Pluto. Nicholas Devore states that “the significance of the Saturn Uranus cycle for the political economy appears clear, especially at and near their cyclic oppositions.” He states many examples in his book of political change and unrest around these Saturn Uranus oppositions.
