HISTORY REPEATING ITSELF?

The third revolution is only starting; it will have over 100 years to succeed. The opposition may desperately try to reconstruct the walls that have held down the human spirit: fixed roles, racial division, fanatic religion, warring nations, oppressive corporations, a polluted environment, and denial of our own spirit. They may even seem to grow stronger, just as the aristocrats did before they crumbled in the French Revolution. In the end, it’s inevitable that the walls will fall, just as the Berlin Wall did-it’s “in the stars.” Whether they fall easily, or whether we fall into a worse tyranny (i.e. apathetic self-indulgence, or excesses in any of our goals) is up to us.

The climax of the new movement will come in the middle of the next century. It will bring down many of the big institutions that harm the environment and block our creativity, and will further shift our lifestyles toward inclusiveness and mutual respect. After that will come further movements. If 1966 represents a new Renaissance, as did the conjunction of 1456, then the next Uranus-Pluto conjunction in 2103 will bring a new “baroque” phase.

There are so many ways to participate in today’s Revolution and Renaissance. Find yourself, and share your new life with those around you.

Work for peace on Earth.

The Uranus-Pluto conjunction at The end of Leo in 1710-11 opened the first of three great revolutions whose impact has dominated modern history. 

The first revolution began with the first incendiary works of Voltaire around 1711. The authorities were so incensed at him that they locked him up in the infamous Bastille prison, thus turning him into the great hero of liberty. 

Freemasonry began a few years afterward, spreading revolutionary ideas through secret societies. 

Some of the greatest minds of the Eighteenth Century joined them, including many of America’s “founding fathers.” 

In 1715 Louis XIV died, immediately setting off a reaction against the absolute rule of the Bourbons. Something similar happened in England in 1714, when George I was brought over from Germany to succeed Queen Anne.

It became easier to question authority in this new, more irreverent atmosphere. 

The Baroque phase of culture passed into the Rococo, typified by the more relaxed, sensuous, elegant style pioneered by the painter Watteau in 1712. Signs of even more disruptive upheavals came when iron smelting and the Newcomen steam pump were invented the very same year. 

The Industrial Revolution was on the horizon.

The goal of the Enlightenment and the first great revolution that began with the Uranus-Pluto conjunction of 1711 was individual liberty. The leaders of the movement, such as Voltaire, wanted to overthrow the Kings who claimed power by divine right, and replace them with governments whose rule depended on the consent of the governed. They wanted to protect free speech, free inquiry, and other human rights against the capricious power of Church and State, and to destroy the unfair privileges of the priests and nobility. In fact, most of our modern conceptions of a free, democratic state are based on their works. Representing the rising power of the bourgeoisie and merchant classes, they also protested against institutions, tariffs, and regulations that restricted free enterprise, but the nobility reasserted its power and successfully blocked the efforts of the reformers. A great confrontation seemed inevitable. Many leaders of the movement were born during the conjunction, such as the encyclopedist Diderot (1713), the skeptical philosopher Hume (1711), and above all Jean Jacques Rousseau (1712).

After every conjunction comes the Uranus-Pluto opposition, about halfway through the cycle. Its impact is often as great or greater than the conjunction. In fact, when Uranus stands opposite to Pluto in the heavens, 

the revolutionary movement reaches its peak. We are at the Full Moon of the movement, and the light of this “Full Uranus” lasts over an entire generation. This pattern took hold most noticeably from the Renaissance onward. 

For example, right after Uranus opposed Pluto in 1395, Henry Bolingbroke led a rebellion against King Richard II of England. A similar upheaval took place in France. Bolingbroke took power as Henry IV, but when the next conjunction came along in 1455, another rebellion broke out (the Wars of the Roses), leading to the Tudor takeover.

Another great revolutionary full moon came in 1649, the year Charles I met his fate at the hands of Oliver Cromwell and the Great Rebellion. The absolute rule of the English kings was forever overthrown and gradually thereafter replaced by today’s parliamentary system. Puritans and other religious dissidents gained their freedom. Simultaneously, the Fronde revolt in France challenged Louis XIV, although this attempt eventually failed. At the same time Descartes was expanding the scientific revolution begun by Gallileo.

This brings us back to the movement that started in 1711. By the 1780s it was moving toward its “Full Moon”-the most awesome one of all. Charles I lost his head in England during the Uranus-Pluto opposition of 1649; Louis XVI lost his head in France during the Uranus-Pluto opposition of 1793. The first great modern cycle of revolution came to its climax in the French Revolution. Aristocratic power was smashed, and bourgeois power took its place. A great charter of liberties was proclaimed, inspired by the American revolution a few years before. The French revolution set into motion that “engine of liberty” which transformed the nations and peoples of the world, making them fiercely loyal not to their king or even their God, but to their revolution and their nation. Its slogan of “liberty, equality and fraternity” not only encapsulated its own aims, but the goals of all three modern revolutionary movements, each in turn.

Just as Oliver Cromwell seized the reins of the Great Rebellion and became a despot, the French Revolution was seized by the “despotism of liberty” and the Reign of Terror. Napoleon took power soon afterward. The opposition is always the climax of the revolutionary movement, but it brings conflict and schism, too. In our modern revolutionary age, old tyrants are often replaced by new ones. The old revolution becomes the new despotism, and new rebels arrive to challenge the revolutionary power of the old rebels.

The first great revolution unleashed the tyranny of Napoleon, but more importantly, it created the tyranny of the bourgeoisie. The commercial and business interests that rose to power in the French and Industrial Revolutions eventually became even more oppressive than the aristocrats they had replaced. The new capitalist industry dehumanized and practically enslaved millions of workers. Soon they were rising up in angry protests, out of which emerged the new movement of socialism to challenge the power of capitalism.

The people moved into action during the next Uranus-Pluto conjunction in 1850, at the cusp of Aries-Taurus. This movement erupted at virtually the same moment as Neptune’s discovery in 1846, the planet that came to represent self-surrender and compassion. The second great revolution was launched, and its goal was not liberty, but equality. The movement’s leaders wanted to overthrow not only the king, but also the capitalists by taking control of the “means of production.” They saw that individual freedom alone just allows the strong to oppress the weak, so they wanted to use the state to break the power of the business class and put it in the hands of the working class. They wanted to protect society from the greed of the individual; they exalted cooperation and collective identity above the competitive spirit. The masses rose up in revolutions throughout the European continent in 1848, and in China in 1850 in the Taiping Rebellion (the most massive uprising in history). Also in 1848, Karl Marx described the aims of the new movement in The Communist Manifesto. Social realists like Engels, Courbet, Millet, and Dickens vividly portrayed the plight of poor workers, and humanitarians demanded proper treatment of the sick and downtrodden for the first time in human history.

The new socialist movement was easily crushed at first, but Marx saw that as industry and capitalism expanded, the proletariat would become stronger. Each succeeding crisis of “boom and bust” would bring the revolution closer. So even as the movement was crushed in 1850, the industrial machine went into high gear. Greed went unchecked, and society became ever more divided along class lines. The second great cycle reached its climax at the opposition at the turn of the Twentieth Century (1901), when labor unions and socialist parties expanded as they never have before or since. A more violent labor movement (syndicalism) exploded at the same time, while the “muckrakers” aimed their pens at the evils of capitalism and launched the progressive movement. European imperialism suffered a black eye around 1901 through the Boer War, the Chinese Boxer Rebellion and elsewhere, and “anti-imperialism” became an integral part of the Communist program.

In 1902-03, Lenin’s Bolsheviks split from the other Russian Communists and took over the movement. In 1905, the Russian revolution against the Tsar went into high gear, and exploded in the greatest socialist upheaval yet. In 1917, Lenin founded the Soviet Union, which institutionalized socialism. Once in power, the Communists unleashed their own “reign of terror” that was far longer and deeper than the French one. Instead of the “despotism of liberty,” they created the “dictatorship of the proletariat.” The turn of the Twentieth Century thus represented another generation of revolutionary change that corresponded to the “full moon” or opposition of Uranus and Pluto in 1901.

Throughout the remainder of the second revolutionary cycle, socialism and communism advanced relentlessly, and half the world came under the “red” sway. Even in “democratic” countries, socialism made gains. The communist and democratic-socialist movements succeeded in making people more equal in wealth and improved living standards, but in so doing, it reduced the individual to an anonymous cog in the industrial machine. As industry advanced, it destroyed the quality of life in many ways. It also threatened all life on Earth for the first time ever. Once again, a new tyrant had replaced the old; this time the tyrant was not only the greedy capitalist, but also the machine itself, and the monolithic, corporate, communist state which had swallowed individual identities. Since 1850, scientists and politicians alike had divided humanity into warring classes, races and nations, and the free spirit of the person was forgotten.

This is the background of the third great revolution, the movement of our own time. The next conjunction arrived in 1966 in the sign Virgo. The American military-industrial complex went haywire, as bureaucratic blindness and inertia caused the U.S. to stumble into the disastrous war in Vietnam. Youth turned on to drugs and the occult and dropped out of industrial society, and authority and conformity were challenged at all levels. The U.S. was rocked by massive protests against the war, and by minority groups asserting their civil rights. Revolutions attempted to overthrow the state in France and Czechoslovakia, and the worldwide student movement shut down universities and blocked military activities everywhere. In China, the Red Guard hit the streets. The long-term result of the “cultural revolution” excesses of the Red Guard in 1966 was to discredit Chairman Mao and his brand of communism. This, coupled with the Czech movement, would eventually inspire radical reforms in China and throughout the Communist world.

What do the revolutionaries of the third movement want? Its political aims can be summed up in three words: peace, ecology, brother/sisterhood. We who believe in this revolution want an end to war. We want to save the planet from destruction. We want all people to join together as brothers and sisters in one common family, a true human “fraternity.” We ask you to “imagine,” as John Lennon did, a world without rigid borders of race, sex, creed or nationality.

In order to have true peace outside, we must also gain peace inside. Therefore, the third revolution is not only political, but cultural and spiritual, too. We want to discover the life and spirit within us and to explore psychic and spiritual dimensions. We want creative freedom to pursue our own life and career path and to “follow our bliss,” as Joseph Campbell said. We want to get off the industrial treadmill and live according to our true values. We declare, as Patrick McGoohan’s television character in The Prisoner did in 1966, that “I am not a number, I am a person;” that no dehumanizing system or institution shall entrap and enslave us. Culturally, the ’60s opened up new styles which are still developing, such as “visionary,” “psychedelic,” “New Age,” and “World Fusion.” Womens’ Liberation (Uranus-Pluto in Virgo, the Virgin), is also dramatically transforming our culture (N.O.W. formed in 1966). Just as they and others we call “minorities” empower themselves, so we all are also throwing off outdated social roles and recovering the “feminine,” less domineering side of their nature.

The new movement has superseded the old ones, though the goals of the first two revolutions remain. Wherever human rights and liberty are denied, there is the place for the first revolution. Wherever the working class remains in poverty and subjection, there is the place for the second. The vanguard of change now rests with the third revolution, however. Its aims underlie all movements from the 1960s on. The two older movements still dominated political parties in most nations as late as the 1990s, but their ideals are now as much a part of the past as a part of the future-as much a part of the problem as a part of the solution. In the New Millennium, the ideals of the third revolution will increasingly come to dominate our politics, and many of its goals, such as saving the planet, building peace and bringing the creative spirit back into our work and public life, will gradually be achieved.

Marx believed that his movement was the synthesis of previous movements, since he couldn’t conceive of another one beyond it. In fact, the third revolution is the new synthesis. The first revolution exalted liberty for the individual (and still does). The second revolution (Marx’s) exalted equality and society’s rights over the individual (and still does). The third revolution exalts fraternity, or the individual in interdependent, creative relationship to society and the planet. It proposes unity within diversity. It’s ultimate symbol is ecology, the union of all life which enhances the quality of life of each individual. The “green revolution” answers the crying needs of our time-survival of the planet, and of our own humanity. Thus, green replaces red as the new radical color.

The dual planet Pluto in its higher phase of renewal is the planet of this cycle (its lower phase of death was fascism, which erupted after its discovery in 1930). The asteroid/planetoid Chiron, discovered in 1977, is the symbol of the “wounded healer.” It moves between Saturn and Uranus, and is also linked to the third movement. It represents “keys” to help us access transcendent or invisible realms and integrate them into our lives on Earth. These include such things as holistic and New Age techniques and information technology.

Despite the attempts by reactionaries to stem the tide, time is on our side. The third revolution is only starting; it will have over 100 years to succeed. The opposition may desperately try to reconstruct the walls that have held down the human spirit: fixed roles, racial division, fanatic religion, warring nations, oppressive corporations, a polluted environment, and denial of our own spirit. They may even seem to grow stronger, just as the aristocrats did before they crumbled in the French Revolution. In the end, it’s inevitable that the walls will fall, just as the Berlin Wall did-it’s “in the stars.” Whether they fall easily, or whether we fall into a worse tyranny (i.e. apathetic self-indulgence, or excesses in any of our goals) is up to us.

The climax of the new movement will come in the middle of the next century. It will bring down many of the big institutions that harm the environment and block our creativity, and will further shift our lifestyles toward inclusiveness and mutual respect. After that will come further movements. If 1966 represents a new Renaissance, as did the conjunction of 1456, then the next Uranus-Pluto conjunction in 2103 will bring a new “baroque” phase.

There are so many ways to participate in today’s Revolution and Renaissance. Find yourself, and share your new life with those around you. Work for peace on Earth. Find a way off the industrial treadmill. Stand up for your rights, and those of others. Support organizations helping to save the planet. Already, we saw the movement make its mark in Germany in the early 1980s with the Green Party (interestingly, the first socialist parties also gained strength in Germany). Now similar parties are springing up everywhere, as I predicted they would, but their original inspiration all came from the movements here in the U.S. in the 1960s. Those who propose a third party or a new politics in America or elsewhere could do no better than to adopt the name and program of the Green Party. However you participate, now is the time. The new revolution is happening, and you can help to shape it.
