Notes on America's Powell Chart for US Independence

January 27, 2021: As you know there are several possible founding horoscopes for America and all contain significant information about the era and its milestone events especially if studied as parts of a process. Jurisdictional Astrology addresses the three moments of origin involved in the founding of towns, cities, states, and countries: the moment of intent (decision to form), of first action (de facto), and legal incorporation (de jure).

The US Powell Horoscope of July 1, 1776 (7:09 pm LMT Philadelphia, PA) is based on the notes of participants such as John Adams and the moment of intent (first vote for independence) which is highly significant in regard to the founding of our nation.

Therefore, recommended is an awesome presentation by astrologer Gary Lorentzen concerning the Powell Chart for U.S. Independence for those who haven't checked it out previously. When Astrology combines with History, brilliance and deeper understanding result!

As for differences between the oft-used July 4,1776 chart/s and the Powell Chart of July 1, 1776, obviously there are a few. With Luna being the fastest moving cosmic body, the Moon on July 1, 1776 at 7:09 pm LMT clocks in @15Cap16 rather than Luna's usual Aquarius position of humanitarianism that most of us are accustomed to. The July 1st Sun @10Can32 (conjunct Sirius) gives America a Sun Cancer-Moon Capricorn blend and adds a Moon-Saturn square to our usual Sun-Saturn square (which improved as it matured). Formed, in fact, is a T-Square of Sun-Moon = Saturn influences that include potentials for: 'depression, repression, separation from the community, illness, divorce, renunciation, loneliness, relationship difficulties between the sexes, illness, joint or shared suffering, a weakened system', and, on a more positive note, a talent for 'addressing problems' (Ebertin; Tyl).

On another level, this dynamic T-Square describes the legislative body and laws (Saturn) that restrict (square) leadership (Sun) and We the People (Moon). Well, they do, don't they? Note that one thing the January 6th attempted coup would have effected was to end control and oversight of the president by the US Congress thus 'freeing' the Executive Branch from annoying restrictions, legislative and otherwise. In other words, we'd be stuck with the implementation of an authoritarian monarchy headed by one narcisistic despot. You-know-who. And he's still scheming against democracy from his golf club in Florida.

Karmic Saturn and the US Powell Horoscope

Now rather than the usual Jupiter-ruled sign of Sagittarius rising, the US Powell Horoscope shows 6Cap07 rising at 7:09 pm LMT - rising with fixed star Facies with the star's keywords that may give anyone pause: ruthlessness or the victim. My first thought about Facies rising is that it resonates with America's tendency to create opponents and enemies even where none exist, and Facies energy apparently adds fuel to what has become our nation's constant determination to fight perpetual war for global dominance (while neglecting the needs of We The People). Facies has a victim-savior quality (Virgo-Pisces) and here it expresses on the Cancer-Capricorn axis of Security concerns. One thinks of 'Homeland Security' as an ambitious model of Cancer-Capricorn energies.

Then Saturn as chart-ruler makes only one applying aspect: Saturn trine Uranus (5A57) which gives the US a bridge between generations where both past and present values can be melded so that a joining of historical perspective within the context of the present moment is successfully affected (Oken). In other words, inventiveness is added to common sense. However, as you know, the US and the world now labor under the difficult, rigid rays of a transiting Saturn-Uranus square (Aquarius SQ Taurus) with its rebellion against authority, law-unto-ourselves vibes. That America's natal Mars is retrograde by progression (in both our July 1st and July 4th progressed charts) adds to our problems with many of our males (Mars), military and otherwise, turning their aggressive energies inward (Rx) toward We The People. Unfortunately, the Rx of normally outgoing Mars constitutes a weakening influence for the next few decades. Our natal Mars in Gemini was mobile and ready for action while progressed Mars in Libra is about depending on feelings, emotions, and moods to lead the action. Unfortunately, Mars-rising Tr*mp was able to use this weakened condition for the purpose of expanding his power with his natal Jupiter conjunct US progressed Mars Rx (both @18Libra). Even a certain Libran laziness may be noted in some cases (his!) and in some circumstances - and yet we know that the Aries-Libra axis relates to diplomacy and to war. Meanwhile, Mars Rx inclinations toward gullibility and susceptibility to being led express willingly via Tr*mp's adoring fanatics and operatives.

Here, a personal note: my fervent hope is that our nation's 1776 Saturn-Uranus trine is helping mitigate the hate-filled, violent influences of the current old-order-to-new-order square which will eventually fade by late 2022! For if a Saturn-Uranus trine represents The Establishment and reason, may it continue to be so. Not that America can't or shouldn't change or update but I imagine that my Revolutionary ancestors would greatly appreciate their sacrifices not being in vain due to a draconian change of government to the monarchic authoritarianism they fought against. With our 1776 trine, our nation can successfully change and reform herself but we must fight against negative interference from inside and out. For as you know, America was set up to do just that. Then another feature in the US Powell Chart is its aspirational Midheaven @29Lib56; rounding up the degree to '30Libra' we have "Three Mounds of Knowledge on a Philosopher's Head." My first thought: Newton, Bacon, and Locke: a trinity of idols of The Enlightenment, aka, the Age of Reason - rather than being guided by out-of-control emotions such as those displayed by the Tr*mp Mob on January 6th.

So let's close with a consideration of the US Powell Chart's practical Water-Earth Sun Cancer-Moon Capricorn blend of conscious and unconscious energies. A dutiful, shrewd, responsible blend, Sun Can-Moon Cap contains strong family values and suggests a strong worldly father (Cancer, sign of nationalism, pariotism, and tribalism) plus a good, caring, reliable, and ambitious for her children mother (Capricorn). Even while quietly looking out for Number One, a hard bargain is often driven in the marketplace, and respect on the global stage results. An instinct for leadership is in evidence with this blend, organizational talents are obvious, but with a deep need for authority and control.

In support of this much-more-Capricorn chart is the obvious reality observed by Pres. Calvin Coolidge (I think; he born on 4th of Ju-ly): "The business of America is business."

I wonder if there's a text compilation of the major points made in the presentation on the Powell chart?

Did you watch all of Gary's presentation? I can ask him next time I'm on FB. jc

wow I had never heard of this chart before & although I'm a huge fan of the Sibley chart for a million reasons as he points out this is a valid & useful chart ... Although with 9/11 he went with the progression i noticed a Mars Uranus midpoint was hit on the natal (hitting the sibley DC) I guess charts can be sort of like a hologram ,depending on which angle your looking from it displays different ways of ultimately telling the same story .very interesting .
