Ingress of Uranus into Aries - Then and Now

Uranus just entered Aries for the first time since April 1, 1927 (it also went retrograde back into PIsces from November 1927-January 14 1928)

Here's what happened around the time of the last ingress:

April 1927

-Bureau of Prohibition was founded (April 1)

-first female officers are hired in Dresden (April 1)

-Bell Telephone Co. transmits an image of Herbert Hoover, which becomes the first successful long distance demonstration of television (April 7)

-Pope Benedict XVI (the current pope) is born (April 16)

-The Great Mississippi Flood of 1927 affects 700,000 people and is the greatest national disaster in U.S. history at the time (April 22)

Here is what was happening during the months just before and after the 1927 ingress:

-The first transatlantic telephone call is made from New York City to London (Jaunary 7)

-The Big Bang Theory was proposed by Georges LeMaitre

-The Jazz Singer is released. It is the first feature-length film with synchronized dialogue sequences--heralding the rise of the "talkies" and the end of the silent film era. (October 6)

So far here is what we've seen around the time of the current ingress of Uranus into Aries (May 27, 2010):

-Pope Benedict XVI is under scrutiny around his handling of sex abuse cases within the Catholic Church

-Volcanic ash from an active volcano in Iceland disrupts air travel across Europe (April 14)

-Crude oil begins to gush out of a broken pipe 5,000 feet beneath the ocean surface in the Gulf (April 20)

-Scientists announce that they have created a functional synthetic genome (May 20)

-Congress begins the process of repealing Don't Ask, Don't Tell which would allow gay and lesbian service people to serve openly in the military (May 27, 2010)

-Apple's iPad makes it international debut (May 28, 2010)

-the first cell phone with video conferencing is announced (June 7, 2010)
