Saturn-Uranus synod: A possible interpretation
A Saturn-Uranus geocentric conjunction took place on 26th June 1988 with Sun at 96 degree under an “Al Nilam-Orion” New Moon. Orion is called “the impious wanderer” ..with grand ideas (and as we shall see in this case possibly connected with a higher spiritual vision) that may go against the existing order..and yet Al Nilam ..the belt star of Orion is indicating a need to discover a middle ground for opposing forces (how appropriate for a Saturn-Uranus challenge!)
And quoting from a previous post on the second Saturn-Uranus opposition:http://www.lunarplanner.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=31&t=380
“The second Saturn-Uranus opposition involves Quaoar, the Moon, Chiron, Eris, Sedna and Varuna--all creating a multi-faceted geometric gateway”.
The reemergence of the feminine (Sedna) from her self-exile may require a crisis (Eris) …and this will happen when we “surrender egoic consciousness and align (ourselves) to divine order.” (Quaoar).
The Moon aligned with AE Auriga as you say , “ suggests (that) a renegade or outcast …and one who lives outside the beliefs and conventions of his group, a free and highly creative thinker moving on his own, even with his own agenda, typical to impious but highly creative and enterprising Orion” is possibly required to articulate the “new law”.
The current Saturn-Uranus opposition on 26th April 2010 under the “Acamar” New Moon had its Sun at 37 degrees. Acamar …a dam on the river of life…a breakthrough is required through a psycho-emotional blockade…once again it is almost as though Uranus with its new ideas must provide a breakthrough what is now become life threatening…Saturn.
(Since we are also going through the Last Quarter of the Saturn-Pluto synod its theme is relevant here. *Ref: Nick in LP below)
I believe that there is a theme unfolding here that can be understood if we connect the dots. The original conjunction was in Sagittarius so that it is all about manifesting a higher spiritual vision…and because the planets involved are Saturn and Uranus this is not going to happen without a fight between an old order and the new order.
If we connect the dots between the Sun Sabian symbols of the 1988 conjunction and the current opposition …a picture appears to emerge,96 Game birds feathering their nest
A new wave of life is starting and a concrete –and no longer symbolical – preparation is made for it. At a social level we can speak of pioneering efforts dedicated to the building of a new culture, new institutions. It reveals a preparation for rebirth and a significant note is sounded by the mention of game birds. What is being built is instinctively – but not yet consciously – offered to a higher level of consciousness. The young-to-be are potential sacrifices to feed human beings
(Christ , who we see in the next symbol , and his mission devoted to the building of a new order is implied here..the symbol of gamebirds depicts so beautifully Christ giving up his life for humanity.)37 Woman of SamariaThe highest meets the lowest when this lowest is free from traditional bonds and open to love. The creative descends first to that which has become chaos. The Woman of Samaria in a way met the challenge of Izar -the synod star of Saturn-Pluto about which Nick says "Izar of Bootes reveals that any fear of intimacy will block the rewards such a leap can offer. However, this specific leap of faith can lead to a place of far greater beauty and harmony than we had known before"
Pioneering efforts are required that are dedicated to:
Challenging older institutions that have caused the suppression of, led to denial about, or instilled guilt, shame, or wrongfulness regarding sexuality and intimacy
Building of a new culture and new institutions that support the healthy evolution and freedom of souls.

*Nick in LPThe Saturn-Pluto Synodic Theme: This synod occurs in early sidereal Libra (2° 36') under the skirt of the Virgin and conjoins Izar of Bootes. Izar resides on the loins of Bootes, sometimes considered his loin-cloth.
The first half of sidereal Libra, which I dub "Under the Skirt of the Virgin," is about cover-ups, about the veiled or hidden truth regarding the intimate balance that is essential between the feminine and masculine principles. It also implies political-religious role in this obscuration of truth--whether deliberately created by the political-religious powers that be, or simply being inherent due to how religious belief structures have evolved over time. This also suggests a veiled cover-up or loss of awareness regarding the true nature of the birth and lineage of souls.
"The first few degrees of early sidereal Libra (within the upper thighs of the Virgin) is about intimate support, sex and sexuality; it is also about environment, specifically about environmental support that ensures the healthy evolution and freedom of souls. The veiled nature of our current mythological image (under the skirt) also indicates the suppression of, denial about, or instilling guilt, shame, or wrongfulness regarding sexuality and intimacy; and about the importance of our relationship with the Earth (environment). It is also about …mutually compatible relations that support our psychophysiological (mental-emotional-physical) wellbeing and the healthy unfoldment of human consciousness.
Pluto and Saturn initiates a dismantling or destruction of long-standing established religious-political constructs and systems of belief that maintain the imbalance between the masculine and feminine and the subsequent discord in our relationship to the environment and life that imbalance creates".
