"There is a very important planetary combination which takes place within the realm of Mundane Astrology (predicting world events) when approximately every six years Jupiter forms an aspect to Uranus. This heralds creative innovations, the beginning of a new trend, stunning success, and phenomenal popularity. These popular innovations happen in the world of science and show business. In the music industry, Jupiter was in conjunction with Uranus in 2010 and One Direction was born. Six years earlier in 2004 when Jupiter was in opposition to Uranus, another Simon Cowell band appeared and took the world by storm - Il Divo. In 1992 with Jupiter trine Uranus - Take That. In 1974 with Jupiter trine Uranus - The Bay City Rollers. These are just a few examples. It does seem that most of these global musical superstars are male groups, but I'm sure some in-depth research would confirm if this is - or is not - the case.
This year marks One Direction's 6th anniversary, and at the end of 2016, Jupiter will be in an opposition aspect to Uranus, so another band is due to appear which will have the same - or even greater - level of success. Who they will be remains to be seen, but if One Direction do decide to return, they might find some tough competition from the new kids on the block....."
As Jupiter began an opposition aspect to Uranus at the end of December 2016, and this will continue on and off until the end of September 2017, the question is: Has this planetary phenomenon had any effect yet? Perhaps.....
In the UK, we recently saw a new talent show called 'Let It Shine' on BBC1 every Saturday evening. The premise of this show was to form a new boyband and involved Gary Barlow - plus a panel of celebrity pop stars - searching for five young men to take part in a new Take That musical. The competition unfolded in three stages - in the first, the acts auditioned as solo artists; in the second, they performed in groups; and in the third, they faced the live shows. At the end of the live final show the winning band was Five To Five.
This band could become the next big musical phenomenon as they were formed under the influence of the Jupiter opposite Uranus aspect in the Six Year Cycle. Yes, it's true that this band will be confined to theatres initially and their performances will take place within a stage musical, but at the end of this anything is possible. Many hugely successful groups have started out in this way. For example, in 1965 an American rock band was formed in Los Angeles for a television series called 'The Monkees'. Four musical actors - Micky Dolenz, Michael Nesmith, Peter Tork and Davy Jones - became the stars of this TV show about an imaginary band who never achieved success..... However, the show was so popular that The Monkees soon became a real band and had massive success - selling 75 million records worldwide.
A similar phenomenon took place years later in the UK when a group of singers - Tina Barrett, Paul Cattermole, Rachel Stevens, Jo O'Meara, Hannah Spearritt, Bradley McIntosh, and Jon Lee - was created by former Spice Girls manager Simon Fuller. The group was formed in 1998 and named S Club 7. They quickly rose to fame by starring in their own BBC television series, 'Miami 7'. In their five years together, S Club 7 had four UK number-one singles, one UK number-one album, and a string of hits throughout Europe, including a top-ten single in the United States, Asia, South America and Africa. They recorded four studio albums, released 11 singles and went on to sell over 10 million albums worldwide.
So, it's possible that new boyband Five To Five could be the next big thing in the world of music. Obviously there are still other talent shows which could produce a new phenomenon throughout 2017: X Factor, Britain's Got Talent, America's got Talent, etc, so, let me know what you think. Any ideas?
