For around 2 days starting on November 4th, the rulers of each cardinal sign will be in the signs they rule. Mars will be in Aries, the Moon will be in Cancer, Venus will be in Libra, and Saturn will be in Capricorn. This is remarkable and incredibly rare, with the last time being in 1783!
This period is known to be a great reset, the mark of a new era. And with the craziness we’ve all experienced in 2020, it’s becoming pretty clear that things will never be quite the same again.
The last few times this happened marked huge changes.
- In the 1370s and 1380s, a great plague in Europe was followed by a series of peasants’ revolts and a shift in power away from the nobility and toward the peasantry.
- The 1570’s saw the spread European expansion into North America and increasing globalization of trade.
- The 1790’s marked the start of the Industrial Revolution along with anti-imperialist revolutions and new ideas regarding human rights.
All of these events fundamentally changed life as people knew it. The old ways were gone, and a new world was opening up.
It’s particularly interesting that the 1793 configuration coincided with Pluto having recently entered Aquarius. As we watch Saturn and Jupiter move into Aquarius, with Pluto to follow in only a few years, many of these events echo into our own time. Work then became increasingly machine-driven and no longer required the human touch. People became disconnected from home and family, which had been the nexus of life for millennia, and instead began working in factories in service of larger corporations. Feels a little bit familiar, right? Will we have our own version of the Industrial Revolution? Will we see the rise of a true technocracy? To what degree will machines and AI come to dominate our daily lives?
And what of the United States? This country was officially internationally recognized as an independent state during the last reset. With political tensions already running high, will this configuration, coming one day after the election, herald a new era or the beginning of the end? It’s anyone’s guess how it will play out.
What do you think about this configuration? What do you think will happen?
