Richard Tarnas: Planetary Cycles and Politics
Richard Tarnas is a professor of philosophy and psychology at The California Institute Studies and he also teaches archetypal studies and depth psychology at Pacifica Graduate Institute. He describes how major planetary cycles are correlated to the trends in this current period in history. He explains how planetary alignments are interpreted according to aspects and why it's important to understand these cycles. Tarnas discusses how the current Uranus Pluto Square (until 2020) suggests the potential for transformation, turmoil and social change and how the opposition of Saturn and Uranus (until 20011) signifies a clash between the old and the new. He also reflects on the current T-square between Uranus, Pluto and Saturn, which has not existed since 1929-1933 and how this aspect correlated to the recent economic turmoil.
