When in the Course of Human Events….

In Congress, July 4, 1776.

The unanimous Declaration of the Thirteen United States of America, When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. —



The Astrological Chart of the United States time of birth, is an approximation based on historical information.  It represents the “birth of a new nation”.   It symbolizes the overall energy of the country as a whole.   This chart shows the “duty” or karma of the country with the placement of Saturn in the house and in the sign it resides in.

So, let’s briefly explore the Sun, Moon, rising sign or ascendant and Saturn in their respective signs and house placements.

The USA has Sagittarius rising or ascending.   It makes this country “larger than life” with Jupiter the ruler.  Jupiter represents foreign people and cultures and along with desire and promise of freedom.   Sagittarius is the sign of the teacher.  In this natal chart, Jupiter is in the sign of Cancer (self-protection) and resides on the cusp of the 8th house (other countries’ resources, power plays and our own transformation).   This is a very important planet ruling this country.  

The Sun in this chart, is also in the sign of Cancer and is placed in the 8th house as well.  Here, we can begin to see a theme emerging; self- protection and other countries’ resources as we on the path of evolution and power.   The Sun is where the country goes to get replenished and strength.

Now let’s look at the Moon, the nurturing energy of the country.   The Moon is in the sign of Aquarius and in the 3rd house of the chart.  Aquarius is all about helping and caring for society, other people’s children and most of all the betterment of humanity!   With Aquarian energy, there are two rulers; the first is Saturn and the other is Uranus.   Therefore, we must look to both of these planets to get a more in-depth picture of the how the “nurturing principle” is expressed.

Saturn is in the sign of Libra (balance, war and peace, Love), however, it resides in, you guessed it, Aquarius’ house!   Saturn being, also, the overall lessons and duty the country has taken on.   Uranus, on the other hand is in the sign of Gemini (communication, networking) and located in Libra’s house (balance, war and peace, love).  Uranus is rebellion while Saturn is traditional.   Uranus brings an unbridle unselfishness while Saturn brings caution but is quite loyal.   Both, carry the Libra energy of bringing into balance anything lop-sided.   The responsibility the United States was born into, is being compassionate for humanity or a beacon of light for the world.   

The Moon of the USA, does not fit in one particular group, but fits in all categories.    One thing is for certain, according to the Astrological Chart, we are a country, of compassion made up of people from all cultures and races.  Each one contributing to the exceptionality of this country, also known as “the Great Experiment”.

By doing a forecast to the Astrological Chart, we can somewhat predict what changes are coming in the near future.  This of course is dependent on the accuracy of the “birth time”.   Assuming we are close to the time of birth, we may see changes as early as July 13 through September 6.  This can be a time of truly getting a clear prospective of what this country is all about especially the expression of the benevolent side of us.  

Now through October 17th, it is our time to evolve and come into balance with our sense of duty and obligations.  We may easily observe this at the end of August and beginning of September.    A new shift will be taking place at the end of August marking a new 48-year cycle.  This change will be a fresh new outlook and handling of money, love, the arts and most of all, a new beginning with appreciation for this country.   Over the next 48 years, we have the opportunity to be thankful we are part of this “great experiment”!

The United States of America exist because of a collective agreement made up of, we the people.  These modifications can affect each one of us in some way.  It can be a time of renewing the dedication to the preservation of this nation and a remembering:

  We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness

Happy Birthday to the United States of America!
