c 1991 they were opposite one another, Jupiter in Cancer, Saturn in Capricorn. Thus Jupiter was exalted and Saturn was strong. There were a lot of very very powerful underground movements going on at this time with the energence of Rap and Hardcore punk as strong forces to shape the nature of society for the next two decades and counting. There was an alarmingly powerful spiritual movement among the punk rockers at this time.
Kids born during this conjunction are now 19 or 20 years old. They are now becoming adults. So my prediction is that we are bound to see a lot of new changes and new directions in the world, and these kids will take the wheel and make significant contributions to lead us in new directions. This will be a strong generation of adults.
c. 1981 The two were conjunct in Virgo. This is a rather neutral sign for the both of this, less pleasant for Jupiter.
So we should find, by examining history, that there is a generation theme caused by the different ways that Jupiter and Saturn interact every 10-11 years. Every 10-11 years they are either conjunct or opposite. This is what causes different trends and themes on a generational scale. This could be examined in far more detail by astrologers, using the specific signs involved and aspects from other planets to make sense of the generational specifics from one wave to the next.
