The state of flux, or a muffled whisper of it, arrived with 2008's election of Barack Obama as president of the US. After a short "honeymoon" period, though, things trundled on much as before. The feeling that "almost anything could happen" dissipated, became "it could, it should, but it won't - at least not in the USA".
There are still two years left before that original ten year span, to 2017, will be complete. Within that span another general election will take place in the USA. This time I don't get the feeling that "anything can happen"; I get the feeling that what will happen is already planned, and that the time is almost here for a gradual feeding, into the collective consciousness of the US, tons of political brainwash. This time I get the feeling that my time span for a true state of flux to arrive needs to be extended by around 5 more years...to some point after 2020. Changes brought about then will likely be the overture to later and much bigger changes.
A little astrology, helps me to look further ahead, to a time when even my husband's great-grandchildren will have either passed on or be in their final years, and their children will have reached maturity. So, what will the outer planets will be doing in, say, 90 years' time?
In 2104 there will be a Uranus/Pluto conjunction. This one in Taurus. The last Uranus/Pluto conjunction was in 1965/6 in Virgo. To find the previous one in Taurus we must look back into the centuries Before Christ - 322BC and 576 BC (see Richard Nolle's list HERE).
Will great-great-grandchildren of today's population live through an updated re-run of the turbulent years of the mid-1960s: Vietnam war, civil rights activism, hippies, etc? There's no doubt that if the human race manages to survive that long, there will be turbulence. Turbulence which could make the mid 1960s look serene by comparison. The conjunction in Taurus has a distinctly robust flavour, far more so than that earlier conjunction in Virgo. Taurus, like Virgo, is an Earth sign, but Taurus is Fixed Earth, and more determined, single-minded and focused.
Could it take 90 more years for the revolution many of us feel a need for now to manifest? Perhaps the great-great-grandchildren of today and coming years will live it for us. I hope that most will survive; eventually the worst will be over, a new world will truly begin taking shape.
