captured by the Wayback Machine. The link above will take you to a page titled "Astronomy and Astrology

The 1993 Conjunctions Of Uranus And Neptune

Where are you in the Hidden Revolution? An article by Melanie Reinhart and Darby Costello.

Until March 2011, when Uranus moved into Aries, Uranus and Neptune were in mutual reception
(in each others' signs) for many years: this articles evokes and describes the blend of their energies.
The themes they represent become relevant every time these two are in 'hard' aspect to each other.
In 2019, Uranus and Neptune were semi-square each other, the first hard aspect between them
since the 1993 conjunctions. By 2020, Saturn was in Aquarius, as it was 'back then'!
