Many of us find the missed generation during the ACW an unnecessary manipulation needed to make other less important timings work.  I think yours or Mike Alexander's proposed generational map with no missing gens is the right way to attack this.   If all gens are present, the crisis has to take a different shape, but either an early start or late finish can be accommodated better than the missed gen.

Arguably this crisis took place too early. It could be argued that the crisis really started in 2001 from September 11th.

Arguable?  Yes, but not a triggering event in the normal sense.  We weren't generationally aligned or emotionally ready for a trigger, so we simply didn't react in the normal 4T manner.  Instead, we went into a 4T anguish wrapped in a 3T cocoon: a lot of sound and fury, but nothing focused on solving anything.  It's equally arguable, that we're still there.  Perhaps the threat was and still is not great enough to force our hands, so we have factional obsessions with a long list of grievances, most of which are valid to some extent.  What's lacking is any plan to constructively address them or even the will to try.  It's easier to bitch about it.  

2020 may be more of the same, or a real attempt to fix things.  We'll see.  I'm less than sanguine.

There is abundant basis for feeling less than sanguine about the 2020s. Some even say it will be the beginning of the irreversible end of the USA, or for the world of human civilization.

I see hope in the evident regeneration Obama talked about in his speech to the Illinois students. There is a rising up now, stimulated by Trump and the rebirth of racism and xenophobia, climate change, inequality and economic challenges and rampant gun violence. The millennials are growing in power and they are more diverse and more aware of the possibilities and threats to the future.

Using my cosmic crystal ball, I have long forecasted the 2020s will be a progressive decade. And it will get more progressive and radical as it goes along. The crisis problems will be engaged and the battles joined. Every 20 years, the two great chronocraters Jupiter and Saturn make a conjunction, and you can see the different directions which each new 20 year period and even each decade take. Each decade begins in our age with such a conjunction or opposition between these planets. After 3 conjunctions (60 years) they return to the same sign, a bit further in. This one in Dec.2020 will be a recurrance of the ones in 1961, 1901, 1842 and 1782. These were the start of the most progressive decades, including the one that gave the term its meaning. Half way between these is the Saturn Return cycle of 30 years, which Schlesinger noticed, and which was also meaningful for the 1930s and 1990s.

In addition, there are manifold other indicators. When a planet returns to its original place in a chart, it brings back the original nature of what was born then, and similar impulses and challenges return. A cycle is being completed, bringing back a recurrance of events. The 2020s is a major such return cycle for the United States. As you know, the Uranus Return cycle has coincided with crisis climaxes and the birth and rebirths of the American nation very closely, since the Jamestown colony was established. The next exact date for the Uranus Return is 2027. The Uranus Return was spoken of eloquently by Lincoln when he referred to four score and seven years ago in 1863. That was 3 years after the Uranus Return, which comes every 84 years or so. That is also the saeculum cycle in modern times, because Uranus' cycle indicates the normal length of a human life. It is also the symbol of our modern revolutionary era, which began with its discovery in 1781, the year American won its independence. FDR also spoke of this cycle in his speech about his generation having a rendevous with destiny.

But Pluto makes its first cyclic return since then as well, and even sooner, since 3 cycles of Uranus takes a little longer than one cycle of Pluto. That comes in 2022. Neptune makes a return and a half also in 2022, and then makes a return to its position in 1861 at the start of the civil war (a Uranus Return time also) at the cusp (0 degrees Aries) of a new cycle through the zodiac in 2025-26. The three planets have a 1-2-3 time relationship in the length of their orbits, all confirming the saeculum length.

The sign Aquarius can indicate sudden and shocking change, reform, or revolution, and in increase in humanitarian concern and technological progress. The 2020 Jupiter-Saturn conjunction will be the first one in Aquarius in 800 years. Pluto enters Aquarius, where it last was during the French Revolution, in 2024. The three planets form a 60/120 degree angle to each other during the decade. These are even not the only signs of a progressive decade, one in which the USA faces a challenge to its existence, and must fight for progressive change or die, just like in every previous fourth turning.

So, every fourth turning fan and reader should take heed, and for now at least take heart, from these cosmic signs that so well coincide with S&H's original descriptions of the saeculum cycle, and what it portends for the 2020s.
