As Saturn and Uranus begin their approach to Opposition
On July 26 Saturn and Uranus will do their final opposition with each other. This battle for our hearts and minds began the first week of November 2008. We have had four exact contacts so far but the final one (of this cycle) will take place at the end of July and the only one in the signs Aries and Libra. And god, knows Aries is quite a bit more hostile than Pisces. Anyway, I have spoken much of it but besides the tension and the rebels and the negotiations that may or may not work or the rest of the icky stuff, we have also discussed that the accent will also be put on innovation and scientific breakthroughs.
Interestingly, yesterday I heard a great piece on NPR about the Power Grid which many of you might find interesting.
This is a complement to July's National Geographic Magazine (Yes they still make them). Can the power grid be fixed?
And then today I saw this article GE has launched $200 million to help someone, please someone, fix our power grid!
GE, in partnership with venture capital firms Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, Emerald Technology Ventures, Foundation Capital and Rockport Capital, today announced the $200 million "GE Ecomagination Challenge," a contest that will fund promising ideas to improve America's smart grid technology.
Perhaps the Saturn/Uranus opposition will bring out some real results. Although, it might first cause a whole helluva lot of problems first...then solutions later.
