On March 3, 2021 progressed Venus in the Aquarian Age chart moved to form a luck (trine) aspect with progressed Uranus. It’s a fortunate aspect that joins a cluster of Uranus progressions that, over the coming years, will all play a big role in shaping our changing world.
Time is the fourth dimension and global astrology charts are reference maps that allow you to see astrology world and time in action. Energy-events there replicate as events here on Earth. It’s the universes best kept secret.
The Aquarian Age chart, major cycle charts and aspects in the sky consort with current circumstance to produce all kinds of events. An event occurs when its astrological parent is stimulated and its environmental resistance evaporates. And the signature – Aquarian Age – global chart maps and times the principle energy-events that fuel the future.
Change is constant
Your daily life involves change. Progress involves change. Laws and rules change. There’s incidental change and major change. There’s no such thing as lasting change. Big change occurred when the equinox moved from Pisces to Aquarius. The struggle to modernize – to engage with the astrological energies liberated by Aquarius – involves change. Change involves difficulties – it’s rarely smooth.
Change ignites geopolitical tensions. It involves disruption. The reform process involves change. Intellectual, structural and economic change is a slow process. The transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy involves big change. Events like covid-19 enforced change. Technology is a change driver. There’s fortunate and unfortunate change. Change creates divisions. It results in winners and losers.
Uranus is the planet of change
Uranus is the planet of freedom, liberty, independence, autonomy, self-rule, discontentment, dissent, disruption, social unrest, strikes, boycotts, protests, demonstrations, uprisings, rebellions, revolutions, extremism, extremists, radicalization, those who are different, LGBTQI and biracial people, multiculturalism (with Pluto), racism, racists, exposé, startling revelations, invention, innovation, technology, the tech sector, high-tech industry, robots, electric cars, electricity, artificial intelligence, machine learning, reform and radical change.
Uranus brings sudden, expected historic change: Good revolutions – ground-up revolts – mass protests – mass outrage – mass demonstrations – and street rallies. He uses disruption tactics to get what he wants.
Uranus is the unpredictable change-agent. He does the unexpected and springs surprises – like something that has never happened before.
Aquarius plus Uranus = a technology revolution
In 1881 Aquarius changed the astrological settings but the basic fundamental urges that drive behavior didn’t change. In 2021 technology is a tool that facilitates the satisfaction of your strongest urges.
It creates appliances and devices that allow you to assert power and blow your trumpet; enjoy a comfortable home life; talk and communicate; have social fun and play games; fight and have sex; conduct business, sell and worship; and buy things, make money and feel safe. And a person living in 1850 did all these things in a different environmental setting.
You’re surrounded by Aquarian Age technology and driven by the same desires and feelings that the first humans felt 270,000 years ago.
Technology involves human interaction. Creators and users play a dynamic role in its creation and use and in 2021 Aquarius and Uranus are creating the metaverse – aka the mirror world or Magicverse. It’s a world of alternate digital realities where you can work, play and socialize. With new connectivity, devices and technologies you’ll be able to experience the internet whenever you want... not just when you log on.
The metaverse is all about designer brands, digital clothing, online shopping, making money, virtual fashion, entertainment and Jupiter mindsets. It may or may not make your life better… your call.
Aquarius forecasts a knowledge society and Aquarian Age thinking shapes, reshapes and changes the education model needed to get there.
In 2021 investors (house 8) are flocking to the flourishing medical-technology industry; and each country’s National Health Service (house 1) is changing at a record pace. It’s a new age of health care technology and digital medicine.
In 2021 CRISPR, the powerful new gene editing technology has already been around for a few years. It’s used to control which genes get expressed in plants, animals, and even humans. It can delete undesirable traits and, potentially, add desirable traits with more precision than ever before.
Artificial means produced by humans, rather than nature, and often implies that the artificial is inferior to the real thing. In 2021 machine learning gives computers the ability to learn without explicit programming. It involves AI. An array of historical data is collected and loaded into already tailored ML-algorithms which can predict outcomes from old and new data. Limited only by its processing power and memory a machine is taught to perform various complex tasks like diagnosing diseases by symptoms.
In 2021 artificial intelligence is being integrated into mind-control technology. There’s a revolution in brain to brain interface interaction and a race to not only develop the brain-computer interface but also the brain-brain interface – a brain net.
Fact-check: Astrology, via energy-events in global cycle charts, doesn’t forecast precise events. It can’t predict what the next technological wonder will be. It just provides energies that have constructive or destructive modes of expression for human actors to use when living their lives and achieving their aims and goals.
Unrest, civil disobedience, protests and strikes
Uranus the progressive change-agent declares: Progress is possible.
Large-scale social change is hard but its first inkling springs from Uranus recognizing something is wrong. Discontentment prompts dissent, strikes and civil unrest. To succeed protests movements need to get the support of the masses and moderates.
In 2021 unrest, civil disobedience and protests are widespread; and in her book, ‘Why Civil Resistance Works; the Strategic Logic of Nonviolent Conflict’ published in 2012, Erica Chenoweth confirmed that civil disobedience (Uranus) is not only a moral choice it’s by far the most powerful way of shaping world politics and instigating reform and change.
Her study of historical protest movements and revolutions revealed that overall, nonviolent campaigns were twice as likely to succeed as violent campaigns; and that peaceful protesting (Venus-Uranus) led to political change 53% of the time compared to 26% for the violent protests (Mars-Uranus).
In 2021 dissent is global and repressive regimes are tightening their grip on their citizens at home and abroad. They’re restricting human rights and civil liberties. Authoritarian dictators are using technology to intimidate and kill.
Uranus 2021-2024: Big change is coming
Progressed Jupiter is trine birth chart Uranus
This high-harmony aspect in the Aquarian Age chart commenced in June 2015 and reached peak power in January 2020. It radically changed the financial and commerce landscape.
It brought financial reforms, financial exposés, electronic banking, digital and crypto currencies, eCommerce, breathtaking profits, eye watering bonuses, free trade agreements, religious reform, religious extremism, reforms to the church, digital churches, reforms to the court system, progressive laws, treaties, ePublishing, eAdvertising, tolerance and acceptance of difference, and charity for refugees and displaced persons.
Jupiter is the planet of abundance, prosperity and expansion and with Jupiter trine Uranus Jupiter’s rich world got richer. But in 2021 there’s rich-world–poor-world inequality which Jupiter is failing to address.
Jupiter trine Uranus will continue to parent wondrous technological progress and other fortunate Jupiter-Uranus events till September 2024.
Progressed Mars is parallel birth chart Uranus
This dangerous energy-event started in September 2019 and in 2020 it fueled far-right extremism, extremist violence, all kinds of hate, racial hatred, police violence, protest movements, the global anti-racism protest movement and the global anti-police violence protests. The cops killed too many people who they were supposed to serve and protect.
In 2021 Mars and Uranus are fighting for change. Maybe they’re finding new reasons for humans to kill each other.
They’re powering the quantum revolution, the technology war, the race for technological supremacy, the reformation of the manufacturing sector, advances in battery technology, the modernizing of the killing industry, and the arms race. The world’s superpowers are building bigger and better missiles, bombs and warships.
In 2021 public discontentment erupts into social unrest, aggressive disruption, citizen uprisings and freedom fighting. Events occur with cataclysmic suddenness. The police open fire, protests turn violent and the peaceful protestors run for their lives.
Mars parallel Uranus reaches peak power in April 2023 and doesn’t end till December 2026; so it’s explosive, hazardous storyline is scheduled to play out during 2021, 2022, 2023 and 2024.
Progressed Mercury is sextile progressed Uranus
This harmonious-opportunity aspect started in May 2020. It reached peak power in January 2021 and ends September 2021. Then in September 2022 progressed Mercury sextile birth chart Uranus starts. It reaches peak power in June 2023 and ends February 2024.
In 2020 the covid-19 pandemic changed the environmental settings and Mercury sextile Uranus energized the scientific thinking that discovered and developed the covid-19 vaccines. It reformed the education agenda, invented new information technology and had school children learning online.
Mercury sextile Uranus is a big news story. It ignited an impulse to innovate and reform. It reformed the press. It changed the way people think. It made freedom of speech a big human rights issue. It stressed your need to get and act on news and information that was genuine and truthful.
Aquarius stands for reliable knowledge and knowing why and what to do. But acting on dubious knowledge and misinformation can ruin your life; and scrolling websites and headline grazing favors information overload, shallow understanding and a deficiency of knowledge. Technology won’t improve your intelligence. It can have you believing pure nonsense. And texting all day won’t improve your communication or decision making skills.
(In September 2013 progressed Uranus moved to form a sesquisquare aspect with birth chart Mercury. It’s an agitation energy-event that’s messing with people’s thought processes. It forecasts weird thinking, bizarre ideas, extremist rhetoric, controversial technologies, difficulties for the press, science and education agenda and upside-down developments where things suddenly go off the rails before returning to a more moderate and conventional state of play. The aspect reaches peak power in March 2049.)
Progressed Venus is trine progressed Uranus
This high-harmony (luck) aspect started on March 3, 2021, reaches peak power in March 2023 and ends in January 2025.
Venus is the planet women’s issues, women, socializing, the arts sector, the fashion industry, beauty, harmonious music, love songs, poetry, flowers and peace; and Venus trine Uranus forecasts advancement for women, progressive social change, major social reforms and online match-making.
In 2020 the coronavirus pandemic changed courting rituals and saw those looking for love pandating.
Venus proclaims ‘I am woman’ and Venus trine Uranus declares that the disruptive change-agents that will shape and instigate social change during the energy-events timeline will be women.
Venus parallel Mars in the Aquarian Age chart puts sexual violence and rape on the social agenda and Venus trine Uranus has women blowing the whistle, making startling revelations, springing surprises, doing the unexpected and rocking the boat. They’re on the front line disrupting the status quo, reforming work-place culture and leading peaceful protests.
This fortunate Venus-Uranus aspect forecasts radical social change where emotional intimacy is preferred to casual sex. It will reboot the fashion industry and design back to the future fashions. It favors protest art and unites art with algorithms so AI is writing poetry, music and love songs. And its ultra-modern, beautiful script will run through 2021, 2022, 2023 and 2024.

And during 2021, 2022, 2023 and 2024 the pressure coming from both the astral and physical environments for revolutionary technological, social and cultural change is immense.
Uranus in each country’s Aquarian Age chart scripts a unique story.
