These ice giants carry what is personal to the collective in a nation. Uranus as the higher octave of Mercury enacts the collective mind within which groups are thoughts. Neptune as the higher octave of Venus blends the feelings of the collective spirit into choices and preferences. The extremely regular orbits of these two generational planets create a whirling dance of the dialectic as the fractal tendencies of Uranus are evened out by Neptune’s urge to merge, new thoughts are integrated into the culture and the society gets propelled forwards. We will look at specific national radix charts as examples, including but not only the USA and Canada.
