Uranus in Aquarius: The Late 1990s

When Uranus transits through Aquarius, it represents the social component of society and heralds the introduction of large-scale social experimentation. To attain more enlightened social contact, it is necessary to break away from social prejudice and snobbery, as described in the transition. Boundaries are likely to be breached throughout the course of the process.

The conjunction of Jupiter and Uranus that occurred in Aquarius also resulted in the appearance of the comet Hale-Bopp in the night sky. “The Great Comet” (also known as the “Great Comet of 1997”) was the most magnificent astronomical sighting of the year. Observations carried out in the N.A.S. According to estimates from observatories, the nucleus of Hale-Bopp is between 19 and 25 miles in diameter. A comet that is supposed to have impacted the Earth 65 million years ago, perhaps causing the dinosaurs to become extinct, is estimated to have been 6-9 miles in diameter. According to current estimates, the Hale-Bopp comet will not be seen again until the year 4397 after making its first appearance in 1997.

The members of the ‘Heavens Cult Mass Suicide’ felt that the Hale-Boppcomet was a message that they should abandon their terrestrial bodies and join a spaceship that was following the comet behind it. Three hundred and nine members of the cult committed suicide by consuming a lethal mixture of vodka and barbiturates, according to authorities. While the transit of Uranus-Neptune (Neppy at a crucial degree) was still in effect, the’mass spiritual enlightenment’ and disillusionment had a significant impact on society during this time period. The focus on ‘brotherhood’ would be obvious, as would the increased socialisation through the use of the World Wide Web. This travel was flavoured by political movements, social, cultural, and communal visions, among other things. With Uranus in Aquarius for the whole year, he brought attention to issues of social intolerance, future vision, and an increased interest in outer space and global concepts.

Deadly Cocktails and Space Adventure

(When you see the terms mass suicide, fatal cocktails, spacecraft, and a comet all in the same sentence, you can be sure that Uranus and Neptune are both active at the same time!)

Uranus in Aquarius Natally


  • It is your generation (those born between 1912 and 1920, or those born between the late 1990s and the early years of the twenty-first century) whose purpose was or is to improve society and shed light on the state of humanity. This implies that the core substance of human nature is what you are deeply concerned about on a deep level. Negatively or unconsciously, this might just be a case of feeling like a misfit – simply because mankind as a whole has gone off the rails and is at odds with its true nature.
  • Although you may not realise it, you understand the significance of individualism, brotherhood, and the intrinsic uniqueness, freedom, and ingenuity of the human being. The Great War and the Russian Revolution, which occurred during Uranus’ transit into its own Sign, were two events that occurred during the first time that witnessed Uranus’ revolutionary surge. In the first instance, it took the exploitation of human beings as cannon fodder for us to come to the realisation that this was not what human beings and human rights were intended to accomplish and about. For example, the second case was archetypally Uranian/Aquarian in that it was revolution in the traditional sense: the liberators and radicals of one generation became the oppressors and conservatives of another generation.
  • There should and will be a great deal more positive, conscious, and creative energy in this second period. There will also be incredible happenings – above and below ground, within and without – that will jog our memories of what Humanity and human nature actually are: sensitivity as an essential quality rather than a painful liability; consideration for all as the only way to continue to exist rather than merely as some lofty ideal.
