The Jupiter – Uranus Opposition 2017
The Unexpected Marriage of Mind and Spirit
(Published in the Dec 2016 edition of The Astrology Journal – UK)
The current Jupiter transit, now at [around] 20 Libra, makes the first of three oppositions to Uranus in Aries. This is the ‘Full Moon’ phase of a cycle that initially began on 8 June 2010, when the pair was conjunct at zero degrees Aries, followed by two subsequent conjunctions until January 2011. Among notable events at the time, the controversial organisation WikiLeaks emerged more prominently into the public consciousness and released a series of classified documents. Some of these documents were leaked by US soldier Bradley Manning, and revealed damaging, behind-the-scenes information about the US war in Iraq and Afghanistan.
