The Uranus Return of the United States

The Uranus Return of the United States

In episode 376 astrologer Nick Dagan Best joins the show to talk about the Uranus returns of the United states, discussing how the transit of Uranus in Gemini has worked out for the country in three distinct periods in American history, and what it may mean for the future.

The planet Uranus spends about 7 years in each sign of the zodiac, and it takes about 84 years to make a complete cycle and return to where it started.

Astrologers have long noted that Uranus was transiting through Gemini during three distinct periods in American history: the Revolutionary War, the Civil War, and World War II.

This correlation between important conflicts in the past is important today because Uranus is again getting ready to return to Gemini starting in 2025, and then transiting through that sign all the way through 2032.

In this episode I sat down with Nick for a detailed conversation about those three previous periods in American history, in order to see just how close the previous correlations with Uranus transits have been, and also so that we could try to gain some insights about what may be coming up in the future.

Nick wrote a book about this topic in 2013 titled Uranus USA, which was recently re-released as a PDF ebook:
