When Saturn and Uranus meet society experiences breakdowns, breakthroughs and reform as Saturn (the establishment and tradition) is challenged by Uranus (disruption and revolution).
The Saturn-Uranus aspect set is the major astrological event of 2021 with three exact squares occurring in February, June and December (read more about the astrology of the Saturn-Uranus squares here).
Saturn-Uranus squares often involve public outcry or passionate activism but as we approach the second square of this aspect set on 15 June 2021 (Melbourne Australia time) the most significant event to date, a major shift in economic thinking announced by the leader of the most influential economy in the world, has yet largely gone unnoticed by the general public which is strange since its impact, when fully implemented, will be substantial.
President Joe Biden in his 100th Day in Office Address to the Congress on 28 April 2021 announced:
It’s time for corporate America and the wealthiest 1% of Americans to pay their fair share… We’re going to reform corporate taxes so they pay their fair share….My fellow Americans, trickle-down economics has never worked. It’s time to grow the economy from the bottom up and middle-out.
Wow! Read that again people!
For the last 40 years, thanks to President Reagan the instigator of the modern version of supply-side economics known as trickle-down economics, western economies have employed an economic policy of lower taxes for businesses and the wealthy which was then supposed to stimulate business investment and subsequently benefit every level of society. But it didn’t! Instead the rich have tended to amass their wealth and shelter it in tax havens resulting growing financial inequity.
The first sign this economic reform is actually being implemented came with the G7 countries (one of which is America) announcing on 10 June, the day of the Solar Eclipse so a potent time of new beginnings and only five days before the second Saturn-Uranus exact square on 15 June, 2021, that they are set to make the large multinational companies such as Facebook and Google pay more tax in the jurisdictions where they actually operate it certainly looks like a new era of economic reform has commenced.
Of course, as is characteristic of Saturn-Uranus squares, we can expect the bedding down of a policy change such as this will be strenuously resisted by the powerful and rich who are unlikely to take losing their cushy cash cow well.
