Roman Empire: Birthday of the New Order

Horoscope of the Roman Empire (Campion #255):

13 January, 0027 BC; 11:10:04 am GMT Rome, Italy: ASC 4Tau34; Midheaven ('MC', The Goal) 18Cap32; Sun 21Cap34, Moon 3AQ43; Mercury 26Cap19 (conjunct US natal Pluto Rx 27Cap33) opposing Pluto Rx 26Can52 (confess your secrets); Thor's Hammer pattern (aka, a Fist of God) with the Jupiter-Neptune square at its base (see upper right for details) and pointing toward the people's Moon (confusing real with unreal).

Goddess planet Venus Rx @10AQ51 as chart-ruler makes no applying aspects which emphasizes 10th house and Venus in Aquarius (protection via sponsorship; peculiar ideas and plans - R. Ebertin); disruptive Uranus (not discovered until 1781 but we see it there) @12Sag56 conjuncts South Node of the Moon (preserving traditions against new social movements).

For major karma there's restrictive Saturn Rx and powerful but hidden Pluto Rx at the bottom of the chart in the area of The Foundation and/or Roots and suggesting the extreme, often harsh, control at the Basis of the Roman Empire's authority through the centuries, authority that was transmuted into the realms of the Catholic Church, the Vatican, and the Pope:

Then expansive Jupiter Rx 20Gem58 in 2nd house leads a ruthless Locomotive shape of the planets and will return to his (the Pope's?) natal position three times in 2024 into 2025:

1. September 24, 2024; 2. October 24, 2024; and 3. April 29, 2025. All three Return horoscopes are significant particularly the second and third, both of which show forceful T-Squares from Mars-oppo-Pluto to the Sun. Accidents, injury, shocks, and/or violent measures are potentials (R. Ebertin). Jupiter in Mercury-ruled Gemini has philosophical interests but the research can be on a superficial level.

Then note that the chart's MC = 1993's Uranus-Neptune Conjunction/s, planetary duo of The Enlightenment - in our era, a major signpost on the path to a New World Order. At MC, Uranus-Neptune suggests utilizing the right side of the brain, and/or 'guidance sought from other realms or never-before tapped sources' (N. Tyl). And with the Mercury-Mars midpoint also at MC, 'courage' is indicated along with the potential for 'retaliation' (R. Ebertin).

Now to me the Sabian Symbol that most closely applies to the Roman Empire in 'the goals department' (MC) and to current events is "18 Capricorn": The Union Jack Flies From a British Warship" = "Keynote: The protection afforded to individuals and groups by powerful institutions in charge of maintaining order. {} Where this symbol appears, the need for protection may be in evidence--or it may be a warning against using power for selfish advantage. {} It brings to us a realization of the ambivalence of POLITICAL POWER, its value and its dangers." (An Astrological Mandala, Dane Rudhyar #ad).

Perhaps we agree that the 'using power for selfish advantage' yacht left the harbor a long time ago.

Gemini-Sagittarius: Ethics and Morality

Penned on the chart in 8th house you see "PE 20Sag08 opposite Jupiter" which marks the position of the Prenatal Solar Eclipse of the Roman Empire. However, 0027 BC is simply too long ago and I have no information on the eclipse, its Saros Series, themes, etc. But I can say that an eclipse opposed by Jupiter (20Gem58) indicates that the observance of correct moral practices is a must for best results, and the strongest temptation leading to ethical errors is via Jupiter's house, here the 2nd house of Money and Values. These karmic issues are always around but they prominently surface during the years in which a solar eclipse in the (mystery!) series repeats, a cycle of 18.6 years, and this is a process that no person or entity on Earth can escape. Yet through the eclipse cycle, the Cosmos gives us multiple opportunities for dealing more positively with recurring events and ethical conditions if we wish to evolve and progress, or, if neglected, karmic blocks continue and may very well fester.

Additonal note: as you see, the Roman Empire's Mercury was conjoined by America's Pluto in 1776 as it is by transiting Pluto now, suggesting that previous methods of control and manipulation are altered for more efficiency.
