Here I'm using the Oct 24, 1993 Uranus/Neptune conjunction at 18Cap33 to mark the official beginning of the New World Order regime...although they conjuncted 3 times altogether, but we'll consider that later on. I chose this particular date due to the Sun's degree/Symbolism--because it's esp applicable to the direction of things these days..hindsight being you-know-what.)
So how's the NWO goin'? you may ask.
The Sabian Symbol for "18Cap" is: "The Union Jack flag flies from a British warship".
Pos: the self's ever-widening spread of interest in its insatiable desire to leave some permanent imprint on everything it touches.
Neg/shadow side: smug or strong-armed paternalism. (Pos/Neg from *MEJ, the rest from **DR.)
Keynote: The protection afforded to individuals and groups by powerful institutions in charge of maintaining order.
POLITICAL POWER: Power is required to maintain social order and relatively peaceful interpersonal as well as international relationships. Alas, this power can easily be misused under the pretext of preserving "law and order." (aka "war on terror"--jc)
Justice and compassion must balance social power, and especially the power of privileged groups. Where this Symbol appears, the need for protection may be in evidence--or it may be a warning against using power for selfish advantage.
And who of a privileged group can resist the temptation to abuse power? If you find one, let me know. Please. And do you think the attacks of 9/11/01 are a "pretext", by any chance? War of terror, more like.
So...the NWO just had its 12th birthday (old enough to know better)--a Jupiter Return period.
Oct 24th was a big day actually--President Bush announced Ben Bernanke as new Fed Chairman (see Oct 24 post below) and it was the same day of NWO's Mercury Return, Mercury being the planet of communications, announcements, etc. Looks like the NWO was rising with the Bernanke announcement.
Using Mercury's degree: "22Sco": "Hunters starting out for ducks". The shadow side? "A callous exploitation of all life".
The Symbol for natal Sun 1Sco19, using "2Sco": "A broken bottle and spilled perfume".
The instructive shadow side of this degee? "Witless dissipation of every resource of self and society". ("Spilled perfume"? Then perhaps it should be called the New World 'Odor').
Jolly crowd, eh?
And of interest is its recent Jupiter Return degree, 26Lib25.
Using the Sabian Symbol for "27Lib" for this one, because it seems to apply more closely:
"An airplane hovering overhead".
Shadow side: Complete inability to get down into immediate realities.
Facing reality has become something of a problem, hasn't it? Ignoring or perverting reality is pretty popular, too.
There will be more observations posted concerning the NWO as time careens on...
...we'll look at the upcoming Saturn opposite Saturn, and other enlightening things about an "elite" crowd of folk who insinuate themselves into every corner of our lives whether we like it or not.
Strong-armed paternalism indeed.

NWO Chart dates from "Horoscope for the New Millenium" by E. Alan Meece...
this is a very useful book esp for world events--see my review of it on Amazon.com, in spite of the fact that it forecasted Al Gore to win in 2000...he did win after all.
