During the last Baby Boom period on a global scale, transiting Pluto was in Leo, which is associated with children and fertility. This alignment likely contributed to a significant increase in birth rates during that time. However, in the United States, the Baby Boom record was broken in 2007. This unexpected surge in births was attributed to various factors, including the span of ages of mothers. During this period, it is noted that both older and younger mothers, as well as unmarried women, were all contributing to the increase in births. This diverse demographic of mothers might have been influenced by various social and cultural changes that led to a broader range of women choosing to have children.
Astrologically, the increase in births during 2007 can be linked to the position of Uranus in Pisces, forming a trine to America’s Sun in Cancer. In astrology, a trine is considered a harmonious aspect that facilitates positive energy and opportunities. The trine aspect between Uranus and the Sun in Cancer could have acted as a catalyst for the sudden acceleration (Uranus) in births. This astrological configuration might have encouraged unconventional choices and surprising changes in family planning and dynamics. Uranus transits are often associated with “expecting the unexpected,” and during such periods, people may experience significant shifts and life-altering events.
When Uranus is involved in transits, it is not about adhering to strict plans, waiting for the right moment, or organizing in a traditional manner. Instead, Uranian energy tends to come as a sudden and unexpected bolt from the blue, bringing transformative and revolutionary changes. In the context of the Baby Boom in 2007, this might have translated into a surge of births that defied conventional expectations and planning.
