Happy Birthday, America! US Solar Return July 5, 2013 @12:22:15 am edt
by Jude Cowell
Yes, Independence Day has rolled around again in spite of all rumors to the contrary! America turns two-hundred-thirty-seven years old just after midnight on July 5, 2013 when the Sun returns to its natal position of July 4, 1776. I tend to use America's 'Sibly' natal chart for that date at 5:10 pm LMT, Philadelphia, PA, though I prefer to relocate our national Return horoscopes to Washington DC (after looking at charts set for Philly, too.)
Below is a snippet of our Solar Return (SR) 2013 horoscope which makes plain that domestic issues and concerns (exs: Real Estate; Security) are front and center with a full 4th house of Jupiter, Sun, and Mercury Rx. As you see, the people's Moon @9Gem23 is in 2nd house of Earning Ability, Values, and the National Treasury. And since the Moon conjoins US natal Uranus (8Gem55), our revolutionary planet, we may expect that excitement, unrest, protests, strikes, and other political activities continue along with concerns such as domestic spying (Mercury-ruled Gemini, Moon conjunct 3rd cusp and US natal Uranus, the planet of Technology, Moon-ruled Cancer on the IC, etc.)
Plus, you notice that warring activist Mars @24Gem17 in the 3rd house of Communications, Neighborhoods, and the Lower Mind has recently returned to his degree in the US natal chart. In fact, as of June, Summer 2013 is replete with the US Planetary Returns of Venus, Jupiter, Mars (as noted), Sun (seen here), and Mercury in August so that 5 new cycles of activity begin in the US.
So! If you wish a much fuller analysis of America's Solar Return 2013 Horoscope on the level of Political Astrology--as seen through my common-good lens--a Stars Over Washington Report is now available for ordering via PayPal to be electronically delivered to the email account with which it was purchased. This is a 19/20-page PDF suitable for printing and remains current for one year until America's next Solar Return in July 2014. See PayPal link at top of sidebar.
Why is a Solar Return horoscope valuable?
Because through our nation's Solar Return year, we may watch planets conjoin SR planets and reach peaks of activity that inspire real-world events as transits and progressions conjoin and cross the Angles of our Solar Return horoscope, enter new houses, and form aspects to other planets and points along the way.
