One of the most prominent Aquarian themes is freedom.
Spartacus, "that make their mirth
Out of the groans of bleeding misery!
Ho, slaves, arise! It is your hour to kill!
Kill and spare not- for wrath and liberty!
Freedom for bondmen- freedom and revenge!"
(Shouts and trumpets. The guards and
gladiators rush and engage in
combat, as the curtain falls.) Following this swing of Uranus through Aquarius from 1828 to 1836, Neptune also passed through this sign from 1834 to 1848 for an extended stimulus to this futuristic vibration. Neptune continued to work these same themes of humanity, science, and education long after Uranus had moved out, but at more of a grass roots level. Historians have noted from about 1825 to the outbreak of the Civil War in 1861, there was an atmosphere of reform in the US. Most noticeable was the antislavery movement, but many dedicated people worked for women's rights, prison reform, educational reform, religious liberalism, social welfare, and other causes. The Web has already examined Neptune's pass through Aquarius in some detail. One group carried the illustrious and self descriptive title of the "Society to Improve the Condition of the Sailors." With the US natal Moon in Aquarius, people coming to America felt as though they had the opportunity to start over, to change their lot in life. They felt as though they could break free (Aquarius) from the bonds of the past (Moon). Indeed they could, and did.
