1776 USA Chart

Today I had an interview with Caroline Wise King, she asked my opinion of the astrological outlook for the USA today and economy and teachings. I never have looked at the chart and was amazed at how similar today’s chart for the US is compared to what was happening in 1776 …

Here’s the information and chart that came up in my research.

1776 USA Chart

 

 

1776-chart“Over the years astrologers have come up with, and continue to come up with, various times for the birth of the American nation. In The Astrology of America’s Destiny, Rudhyar provides ample evidence from the historical record, including accounts by signers of the Declaration of Independence, that the correct birth time of the United States is the signing of the Declaration of Independence, shortly after 5:00 PM, 4 July 1776, in Philadelphia. Rudhyar rectifies the time of the signing to 5:13:55 PM, providing an Ascendant of 13°10′ Sagittarius.

Editor’s Note: The frontispiece appearing in the original edition of The Astrology of America’s Destiny (New York: Random House, 1974) is an illustration from the noted 18th century English astrologer, Dr. Sibley. The horoscope being presented to Washington (see detail below) shows an old-fashioned square chart graphic. It is cast for 4 July 1776, 10:10 PM, London Time. It shows a local Ascendant for Philadephia of 13°12′ Sagittarius.”

July 4, 1776 -transit 7-4-2013 Note from me: After doing some research about the TIME the US chart was, which affects the Rising sign, I tend to agree with Dane Rudhyar’s interpretation of Sagittarius Rising. The basic fact is that the planets are still in the same degree and signs on July 4, 1776 and that’s where the “rectification” (using knowledge & the intuitive process to analyze the energies of that sign) of the Rising sign occurs. It just makes sense to me, that Sagittarius is the collective energy of this Nation.

Please enjoy the recorded interview with Caroline Wise King included here. Thank you for listening and what a wonderful way to renew our enthusiasm for being AMERICAN! We are so blessed and may the gratitude of our GROUP DREAM continue with peace, love and justice for all!

Blessings.

“They cannot logically or astrologically deal with the United States as an operative nation, as a working social organism having, like all organisms, a definite structure. If they refer to anything, it can only be to the fact that, with the Declaration of Independence, the people of the Colonies proclaimed to the world — the international environment — that they had achieved the consciousness of unity, a definite individuality.

Note well the words “proclaimed to the world“; for just as child is really “born” only when he relates himself to the world by breathing the air sensitive to myriad cosmic influences — and he announces this fact by a vocal utterance — so the “American people” were “born” when they declared openly to the other nations their will to act as one people and to exert that will.”

Sagittarius Rising

“I believe the Ascendant to be the clothing of the soul. It is the Soul’s entry into the world, and as such, the Ascendant of the chart of a country must reflect the clothing of the collective soul of a nation.

 Ben Franklin  ( http://www.magisociety.com/ben_franklin_astrology.htm)

When Benjamin Franklin picked a date for America’s Founding Fathers to sign the Declaration of Independence, he made sure the day was a fabulous astrological day.  He was not going to settle for a day when only two planets were going to form a planetary eclipse.  He chose July 4, 1776, because on that day, FIVE planets came together in the sky to form a FIVE PLANET PLANETARY ECLIPSE.

[Magi StarScope of July 4, 1776, above is a view of the actual sky and shows multiple Planetary Eclipses – the white dots are stars of magnitude stronger than 3.2.  The horizontal green line represents the ecliptic and the two horizontal blue lines represent 23.44 degrees north and south declinations, which are the positions of the Sun on the two solstices.]

From the time Ben could first write, he was drawing maps of the sky when the planets and stars were visible and he quickly realized that when Jupiter (the brightest planet in the sky) and the Sun made a Planetary Eclipse, the planets were giving us folks on Earth a sign that something remarkably good was happening.  This is called a Sun-Jupiter Planetary Eclipse.

There was a Sun-Jupiter Planetary Eclipse when America’s Founders signed the Declaration of Independence (July 4, 1776), and also when the US Constitution became effective (June 21, 1788) on the day New Hampshire became the ninth state to ratify the US Constitution.

There are no coincidences in life.

Franklin’s organizational mind is shown by his Capricorn Sun, and the decisive effect he had on the United States as a national power is reflected in his Sun conjunct the U.S. natal Pluto, both at 27° Capricorn. Franklin wanted the national symbol to be the Wild Turkey. Although the Wild Turkey and the domesticated farm turkey are two completely different animals, today we refer to anything that looks clumsy or is otherwise of low quality as a “turkey.” So fortunately in this case Franklin was over-ruled when in 1782 the new Congress selected the Bald Eagle to be the national emblem. Perhaps Franklin saw in the Wild Turkey the qualities of fierce independence, and when strutting about in its mating ritual, a picture of pride, confidence, and regal beauty. Perhaps he was reminded of the federated colonies when he saw the splayed tail feathers, which when fanned out in its iridescent colors presented an image of collective purpose and harmony.

Franklin played a leading role in early American history as an inventor, diplomat, and political scientist. As an elder statesman, he lent moral authority to Thomas Jefferson’s words in the Declaration of Independence. Franklin proposed the innovative government framework of a federation, which he learned about by observing a group of cooperative Indian nations. The States would be equal partners in the federal government, with no individual state holding supreme power.

The essence of the Bald Eagle is strength and courage. In ancient Sumer, Rome, and other warrior cultures, the eagle was the imperial symbol of command and control, and represented the ability to soar above all enemies. It’s keen vision, powerful talons, and majestic appearance are further indications of moral superiority, of a divine or sacred mission. The eagle flies higher than any other bird, and thereby symbolizes the highest spiritual values.
