A List of Planets' Meanings in Political Astrology

Here's an updated list with the meanings of planets in Political Astrology, a branch of Mundane Astrology. Now these are the meanings that I tend to use; no doubt others could add more or subtract a few:

Sun: supreme authority such as US President ('POTUS'), Prime Minister, Chancellor, CEO, leadership. (Solar eclipses hitting a Mundane Sun may denote the death or displacement of a head of state, national character and identity, major events, disruption or a turning point for government in the eclipse year and suggesting a new direction.)

Moon: the populace, We The People (USA), the popular mood, national security needs, basic necessities, women's issues, health, agriculture, nurturing, our daily rounds, the general emotional weather and/or societal trends.

Jude, Excellent summary. May also want to consider this inclusion. 

Chiron: Healthcare; Medical Science; Medical Research Institutions Organizations.

Of note: Obamacare was signed into law on March 23, 2010 during the Chiron Neptune conjunction.

Related: The World Health Organization was established on 7 April 1948, just prior to the Saturn Pluto conjunction of the same year. WHO made its announcement of COVID-19 at the end of 2019 with Saturn and Pluto, in the same phase angle, just prior their 2020 conjunction. Additionally, the first International Sanitary Conference opened in Paris on July 23, 1851, (precursor to the WHO), took place with an exact Saturn and Pluto conjunction.

Thanks again for all your great work.

Somewhere within the 5,000+ posts of SO'W is my 2010 post on Obama's signing of the ACA and showing an image of his signature, if memory serves!
