What Astrologers Are Saying About Occupy…

I have been pondering  Occupy Wall Street for weeks. I’ve been waiting to see my way in to a coherent analysis of the phenomenon. In the mean time, I’ve looked at what other astrologers have been writing.

The consensus is pretty much – it’s the Uranus-Pluto square. I’d concur with this but add a very important factor: Neptune (idealism, mass movements, the collective).

As I wrote previously when discussing the Arab Spring, the last time Neptune was at this point in the zodiac was the Year of Revolutions (1848), when popular uprisings occurred in almost every major city in Europe. To read what I wrote in depth, click here. Sometimes astrology is just so obvious.

I’ll have more to say on Occupy soon, meanwhile here are some views that I found interesting.

Michael Wolfstar at NeptuneCafe has done the most accessible astrological analysis I’ve read.

At Astrotabletalk , Dharmaruci has written two posts on Occupy fever. He has very enlightening things to say about the Plutonic side of it in particular.

Jeff Jawer has written an excellent piece called Taking Back Projections, which dares to point out the parallels between Occupy and the Tea Partiers.

Global Astrology has a fun old rant about it, but you do have to scroll right down to find it.

Mary Plumb at the Mountain Astrologer has done that essential thing of actually comparing the Occupy chart to the US national chart.

Eric Francis also at Mountain Astrologer looks at the birth of the movement with a lot of extra asteroids.

  1. The comparison with 1848 is really important. The history to recall is that those “revolutions that seemingly came from nowhere” led to major reactionary politics. I agree about Occupy being linked with both Uranus/Pluto and Neptune which means they are a little too early. We’ll see the real implications in 2012. Collective action with no clear and rational agenda — hallmark of the Neptune era soon upon us.

    Welcome Jeanne – that’s a fascinating point about the reactionary politics – and kind of worrying. There is certainly a long way to go with the whole story of the uprisings. My feeling is that this will play out in quite different and unexpected ways around the globe.
