The Right To Repair movement is very Uranus in Taurus.
As explained by The Economist here, there is a shift against built-in obsolescence. Manufacturers are blocking the simple repair of most of their products. It’s a smart business move, but it’s terrible for the environment and a control trip on the consumer.
Taurus as a sign has always had a broad “D.I.Y. genius” tone to it. The idea of preserving things/saving $$$ by mending as opposed to throwing something out and starting over is a brilliant fit with the Pluto in Capricorn economy. It is also congruent with innovative Uranus in Taurus, the sign of ‘things.’
And is it only Generation X and above who have noticed how difficult it is to get parts for things anymore?
The Right to Repair movement fits with the new Earth Era. That is Uranus in Taurus and Pluto in Capricorn. It’s a backlash to not only neo-liberalism but also the Uranus in Aries gig economy and general disposability ethos.
(If the comments don’t make sense, it is because I deleted some stuff about the Basques in Spain, as the discussion was becoming too heated.)
