Happy Birthday USA 2014: Challenges ahead

Image from Wallpaperbase.com

(Note:  There are many different astrological charts for the United States and lots of arguments among astrologers about which ones is correct.  I use the Sibley chart with Sagittarius rising, and here’s why. )

The Solar Return chart is a chart that is cast for the exact moment the Sun in the sky returns to the same degree as the natal chart.  Many astrologers use the Solar Return chart to forecast the details of the next twelve months in an individual’s life – I don’t care to use it for that purpose because I believe that we have a great deal of free choice and I prefer to encourage my clients to learn to trust their inner voice and not depend on what they are told by astrologers.  If there is a chance of a hurricane you will probably not cancel your vacation – you will hope for the best and go on your vacation, and then if that hurricane does come you can always change your plans.  But it’s helpful to know that there is a chance of a storm so you can make a contingency plan.

The chart for the USA Solar Return is a challenging one with a Grand Cross in cardinal planets lining up the Moon in Libra in opposition to Uranus in Aries,  squaring the Sun in Cancer opposing Pluto in Capricorn.  A Grand Cross creates tremendous tension that culminates in a crisis of release and ultimate transformation, and the presence of a Grand Cross in a Solar Return chart suggests that there will almost certainly be a major shift in governmental forces and political alignments in 2014.

Gun-nuttery and revolution with Uranus in Aries

Guns astrologyMore than any other sign, Aries is associated with warfare.  Ruled by the planet Mars (Mars is the Roman name for the god of war – Ares was his Greek counterpart, Aries is assertive, energetic, and generally doesn’t like to back down from a fight.  Uranus is the planet of rebellion, independence, freedom and liberation.  It’s not a surprise then that the passage of Uranus in Aries (since 2010) has brought with it a huge wave of rebellion against gun laws among gun aficionados in the United States.

As soon as Uranus moved into Aries in 2010 there was an eruption of “open carry” demonstrations throughout the US by gun rights supporters who believe that carrying guns openly is a good idea.

I predicted this before Uranus entered Aries:

It could be said that a keyword phrase for Uranus is:  “Rules?  We don’t need no stinkin’ rules.”  Uranus is all about breaking the rules – fighting for independence, the right to make one’s own decisions and not be hampered by any external force.  Aries is the sign that is ruled by Mars, the god of war.  Mars rules over guns and all other forms of weaponry and other supplies needed for warfare.  So we can just imagine that when Uranus enters Aries in May, the battle over gun control will begin to seem very important.

Under Uranus in Aries, gun rights have become synonymous with freedom, such as  proclaims:

Chairman Mao said, “Power comes from the barrel of a gun,” which is a truism. Power is freedom or freedom is power – also a trusim. Therefore freedom comes from the barrel of a gun.

Other countries are not seeing the same kind of gun revolution – […]

Memorial Day 2014 – the astrology of US warriors

Memorial DayIt is very ironic that as we celebrate Memorial Day today – the US holiday that honors its fallen soldiers – the Veterans Administration is being rocked by a scandal that data on admissions was falsified to hide the fact that those very fallen soldiers were left waiting for medical treatment which led to the deaths of at least 23 veterans.

The first Memorial Day on May 1 in 1865 when thousands of slaves gathered in Charleston, South Carolina to wash and dress the bodies of 257 slain Union soldiers who had been thrown into a mass grave.  These soldiers were reburied in a proper cemetery, and a parade of thousands of black Charlestonians, many of them former slaves, led a procession and dedication of the graves.  This dedication was followed by picnics and celebration.

No matter what your politics, it can’t be denied that fallen soldiers rarely receive their due unless they are killed in battle.  Then there is great fanfare and honor, but the soldiers who return from war with PTSD, psychological and physical wounds, and whose lives will never be the same, often have nowhere to turn and are forgotten.

In mundane astrology, Mars represents warfare and warriors.  In the astrological chart for the US, Mars is in the sign of Gemini, the sign of the shapeshifter and experience seeker.  Mars in Gemini does not have a great deal of power – it can become distracted and seek a wide variety of experiences.  We can see this plainly in the tendency of the United States to insert itself in wars around the globe rather than focus on one particular situation and gather strength in that location.  American soldiers are […]

The astrology of Elizabeth Warren

Elizabeth Warren birth chartElizabeth Warren has gained fame over the past few years as a passionate defender of the economic rights of American citizens.  She has an enthusiastic following and talk grows daily of a presidential run – talk which is continually denied by Ms. Warren.

Elizabeth Warren was born on June 22, 1949 in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.  When I begin to work on an astrological profile I generally try to find a birth time and Astrotheme is often a good source for that.  Astrotheme scours the internet and other sources for accurate times, but sometimes they are not so accurate. Astrotheme cites a 1:51 pm birth time for Elizabeth Warren that seems to have originated with a rectification procedure .  Rectification is a process whereby life events are carefully considered and compared with the progressed chart to identify placement of the angles (the Midheaven and Ascendant) and thereby pinpoint a time of birth.  Rectification is not 100% reliable, and without a confirmed birth time I will not be looking at the houses or Ascendant or Midheaven.

Still, we can easily see where Ms. Warren’s radical fight for fairness for the common man originates in the chart.  Her Sun is in Cancer – a placement which I have found often denotes an individual who is painfully and personally sensitive to global pain and suffering, and her Sun conjoins Uranus, the planet of radical thought and behavior.  Sun/Uranus people march to their own drummer – in fact, they set the beat and it’s nearly always something unique and surprising.

Sun/Uranus people seek fairness and liberty.  Although Ms. Warren ran for office as a Democrat, she has voted for both parties saying that neither party deserves to dominate.

In addition, her […]

The Kennedy Assasination and the US chart

Kennedy assassination astrologyUnless you’ve been asleep all day you will know that today marked the 50th anniversary of the assassination of John F. Kennedy.  I have been a student of conspiracy theory since the 1980s, and there is a fantastic book called that you must read if you want to discover all of the details in all of their suspicious glory.

The assassination on November 22, 1963 took place just as Uranus and Pluto were beginning their conjunction cycle that would eventually bring about the social upheaval and change that we now call “the sixties.”  The Vertex, the point of fate, was sandwiched between Uranus and Pluto, joining them together by association to create an event that would forever change the course of history. At the time Saturn (governmental structures) was squared by Neptune (delusion and deception), ensuring that a confusing veil would be cast over the entire event making it one of the great mysteries of our time.

I discovered something else that is quite significant – during the few years before the assassination, Pluto and the South Node were coming into alignment in the progressed chart of the United States.  Humans have charts that progress over time, and so do nations and anything that has a beginning at a specific moment in time.  (You might be interested in this long article about the history of the US progressed Sun.)

Pluto represents the force of destruction and decay that is followed by regeneration and new birth, and the South Node is a point in the passage of the Moon that represents the past, a karmic inheritance.  When Pluto and the South Node collide, there is often a debt that comes due, or a dramatic […]
