The Horoscope of the US/ Part 2

Of the ten possible charts that Lois Rodden lists for the US, I personally choose to use the Sibley chart and no other. The Sibley horoscope embodies intent. It is a clear expression of will and as such, it is a powerful invocation and a wonderful example of how thought shapes action, of how soul informs matter. The declaration reads as a list of grievances which serve to justify the action that will follow. It is also a declaration of war – and here we have Mars in Gemini (the militia) in the 7th house (open enemies) squaring Neptune in the 9th. The fight here is with the motherland far across the ocean. The chart is linked to the planet Uranus which was discovered before the inauguration of the first president, George Washington. Uranus is prominently placed in the horoscope, conjunct the descendant, and the US Moon is in Aquarius in the third house, overtures here of “the Brotherhood of Man”. The North Node, which is in the 8th house, suggests that the US should consciously direct it’s energies toward non-material values, however clearly with the South Node and Pluto in the second there is much dross to be overcome.

If Mars in the 7th has serious warmongering potential, then Mercury -ruler of the 7th in the 8th in opposition with Pluto in the second- points to the juicy profits that can be made from it. 

With its Neptune in the ninth, it is clear that the US has no shortage of visionary, charismatic leaders. I think in its soul the US does actually know what direction it should be going in, it just has difficulty going there. We all know this problem with the North Node, right? The problem is Pluto in the second and the addiction to wealth and power. Shortly before his assasination, President Lincoln wrote “Corporations have been enthroned. An era of corruption in high places will follow and the money power will endeavour to prolong its reign by working on the prejudices of the people…until wealth is aggregated in a few hands and the Republic is destroyed.” With 39% of American wealth in the hands of 1% of the population, it is hard to deny that Lincoln knew what he was talking about.

I hate to repeat myself…. But…. There really is a profound sense of destiny in the early history of the United States, which really is reflected in the reverse side of the Great Seal of the United States. An eye does blaze forth from above a pyramid which has thirteen steps, each step representing one of the original thirteen states. And the latin text really does read: Annuit Coeptis (the heavens approve of our undertakings) Novus Ordo Seclorum (a new dawn of ages). So, what happens next?

Well, with Pluto inching its way into Capricorn, the United States is preparing itself for a new phase in its history. With US midheaven ruler Venus the first in line for the Pluto treatment, this could go two ways. Government must either clean up its act and become more transparent – or there could be a further consolidation of power in the hands of the few. This is a crucial time for the US.  Capricorn is a cardinal sign, it marks a turning point. Whether we like it or not, the world, including the US, is set to take a reality check.  Elizabeth Hathway, DFAstrolS, QHP
