Chiron to Aries Point 2019 and America's Chiron Return

Image: tri-wheel of three Chiron to Aries Point transits 2018--2019: April 17, 2018, September 25, 2018, and February 18, 2019.

In a previous post titled Chiron to Aries Point 2018-2019, you'll find quite a few general details concerning centaur Chiron, the Wounded Healer and priest, plus, notes on Chiron in Mars-ruled Aries which happens to be America's natal placement of Chiron @20Ari08 in our national 4th house of Roots, Foundation, and Endings, July 4, 1776.

Upcoming in the New Year is the third of three conjunctions of Chiron to AP on February 18, 2019 (shown in tri-wheel, outer chart), and with the US natal IC @00Ari47 (in the US chart I prefer: July 4, 1776 5:09 pm LMT Philadelphia, PA), this transit which occurs approximately every 50 years to a Cardinal World Point of Manifestation marks the introduction or entrance of Chiron into America's 4th house of Domestic Scene and Homeland, and casts a glance toward our nation's eventual Chiron Return which will perfect three times, due to Chiron's retrogradation: on April 20, 2024, November 8, 2024 (Rx), and February 18, 2025. (More on this in a future post.)

Rounding up, the Sabian Symbol for US Chiron @21Aries = "A Pugilist Entering The Ring" as we did in 1775/76 and beyond; and with US Chiron in Aries we often express the 'sacred warrior' archetype of the Seeker on a Quest identified as "pioneers, trailblazers, and/or mavericks" charting an independent course, seeking our national identity, and endeavoring to lead the world into the future (R. Nolle). As a nation we have traditionally held high the ideal that America fights for what is right, tarnished though that principled position has become with the less noble "might is right" attitude of expansionism, greed, and lust for ever-increasing power and military conquests.

Yet America's 1776 chart contains a helpful Mars-Chiron sextile which Richard Nolle points out, "indicates one whose strongest energies are channeled into the social/aesthetic sphere as a crucible of the Quest for self-transcendence."

So as America's Chiron Return period of 2024/25 nears we may expect such principles to express within the Collective Mind once again in similar fashion to the events, personalities, and Quest of 1776 at the founding of our nation rising up as 'one among the many.' For after all, the 4th house is one of the Watery Psychological Houses (4/8/12--Cancer-Scorpio-Pisces) and relates to what is needed in order to feel that we are psychologically 'at home' with our inherent sense of identity, formerly wounded, but finally able to face our nation's inner pugilist and throw off the bonds of oppression.

For more details see Richard Nolle's Chiron: The New Planet in Your Horoscope, the Key to Your Quest and The Sabian Symbols in Astrology by Dr. Marc Edmund Jones. If a modern version of the symbols is preferred I recommend Lynda Hill's excellent 360 Degrees of Wisdom.

And did you happen to notice that The Great American Eclipse of August 21, 2017 @29Leo 'eclipsed' Chiron's natal Saturn @29Leo which is the same position of one of our Founding Fathers' natal Saturn?! In other words, the Discovery of Chiron basically timed a posthumous Saturn Return for...guess who?

Saturn-Uranus opposition perfects Sept 15, 2009

As you know, the Saturn-Uranus opposition perfected this very day, Sept 15, 2009 in Virgo-Pisces.

Or I should say, the opposition perfected 'once again'...follow the link for a few notes from yours truly, but mainly the post contains a link to an excellent article on the Sabian Symbols involved in the opposition by Lynda Hill, as published by expert astrologer and author, Donna Cunningham.

You'll find info on their next tangos, too, into 2010.

So you consider yourself a dancer? We're not talkin' foxtrots here!

Libra Full Moon, Easter, and Hope Springs

As usual, my week in the real world has gotten busier toward its end, plus, with Easter coming up this weekend, there is little time to blog on Friday's Full Moon in Libra.

But I'm wishing All a Happy Spring! and pointing you to Australian astrologer, Lynda Hill's article Good Vibrations: Ascension and Easter and the Libran Full Moon and the Equinox which contains the Sabian Symbol details you need.

Winter Solstice Dec 22, 2007

December 22, 2007, 1:07 am est, White House:

Sun and Jupiter fuse together at World Point 00Cap00, in 3rd house of Communications, Pluto nearby--and just after the Great Conjunction of Jupiter and Pluto on Dec 11.

Click to enlarge the image and you'll see the 2006 Solstice chart as well (in green) with my chicken scratch notes squooshed in. It's Jupiter Hours for 2006 and for 2007 which are suitable for expansive, possibly over-inflated Jupiterian things.

Dec 22, 2007:

Chart-ruler Venus 19Sco46 is in 2nd house of Money, Earning Ability, and Values but at what some call the "accursed degree of the accursed sign"...19Sco, a degree which is the neighborhood of two Fixed Stars of mixed-at-best influence:

Serpentis 19Sco: tragedy and misfortune (if your home is foreclosed on, this one's for you.)

North Scale 19Sco22: honor; wealth; distinction; intelligence; good organizer; tragedy; violence; hasty words cause problems; success in sports, religion, war, law, or writing.

Venus also rules the 8th house of Shared Resources, Credit, Insurance, Debt, etc., and is involved by her square with nebulous, undermining Neptune in a FIST of GOD, similar to a strong T-square but with more punch.

And did you know there's lightening on Venus?

Mars 3Can38 Rx is the focal point of this FIST, in 9th house of legalities, foreign travel (and enemies), higher education, philosophy, religion, and such.

This Rx out-of-bounds Mars is conjunct US natal Venus 3Can06--a Venus which is out-of-bounds in the US natal chart as well (July 4, 1776, 'Sibly' chart 5:10 pm lmt, Philadlephia, PA.) Mars to Venus can bring new alliances, joint ventures, and invigorated interactions.

A midpoint picture is formed:

Venus/Neptune = Mars: easy self-delusion; misdirected energy. (Those we've seen lots of in recent years.)

2007 and USA natal chart:

Rising in the Winter Solstice 2007 chart is US natal Saturn and US 10th house which also brings up the US n Sun/Saturn square. Timing can be off with this configuration, and planning must be realistic to succeed. America has had a spotty record on that score, hasn't she?

In fact, the Bush-Cheney regime's lack of realism may be said to be a major part of our current troubles. I would go back to 1999 and the fake presidential campaign of George W. Bush but that's just me.

North Node (the path) is at a critical 29th degree in the 5th house of Speculation and Risk-Taking, a degree associated with destroying ancient lands and monuments (Lynda Hill) and with projecting negative things upon foreigners instead of owning up to your own shadow.

Every Winter Solstice takes the Sun just beyond "30Sag": " The pope blessing the faithful" (the ASC degree in the Jefferson chart for the America, 6:30 pm--MC = "23Lib", conj Spica and Arcurtus) but we'll look again at the Sabian Symbol for "1Cap" using Lynda Hills' 360 Degrees of Wisdom:

"An Indian chief claims power from the assembled tribe"...assuming authority and the need for it; accepting the consequences for what that "Claim" could lead to; charismatic leadership; consolidating power.

Caution: power tripping and struggles; overinflated views of one's self (in Washington? !); the continued need to quieten power battles; being challenged by those left and right; demanding attention and that others follow orders; taking over; selfishness and ego-drive; too many chiefs.

As Lao-Tzu said, To lead the people, walk behind them.

how the 'haves' got richer and you didn't

The Origins of the Overclass gives one of the fuller pictures starting in the mid-70s if you'd care to know how the rich-elite class have catapulted themselves into the stratosphere of wealth and privilege.

Author Steve Kangas says the origins of the overclass can be traced back to the CIA--this article spares no one's feelings, so watch your toes.

Between FDR's New Deal programs and LBJ's Great Society leveling, something had to be done to stop the redistribution of wealth!

Plutocratic Pluto-Chiron's oppression, racism, and class warfare have reached scandalous heights. Their conjunction of Dec 30, 1999 was at "11Sag" and there are interesting insights on this degree by Lynda Hill in her book, 360 Degrees of Wisdom which help to describe what I've been barkin' about with the Democratic-Republican melding from which we and the truth suffer--also described by the Great Conjunction of Jupiter (Rs) with Saturn (Ds) on May 28, 2000.

But here are some details from Lynda's book concerning "11Sag"...

Light workers; grounding reality (double Saturn); concentrating on physical needs; connecting the right and left sides (very descriptive.)

"Light workers" reminds me of The Fellowship, the secret 'Christian' society that Cheney, both Bushes, Rove, Condi Rice, and many others whose names you know, are associated with and which has squirelly relations with all manner of groups and people who aren't on the side of the common man or woman..and don't mind a little mayhem and murder for the cause. The ends justify the means crowd, a la Machiavelli.

And remember the much-touted Y2K flap at the end of the 90s and into 2000? It had such PROMIS, didn't it?

New Moon 18 Lib: "Two men placed under arrest"

New Moon 17Lib30, Oct 11, 1:00 am edt, Washington, DC:

As you know, the US secondary progressed (sec) Mars is now station Rx at 18Lib+, or depending on the US natal chart you use, about to be so.

The "Two men placed under arrest" of "18Lib" seems pertinent to what's going on in our newly-evolving police state as well as with Blackwater and other disasters and outrages of the Iraq occupation. Seems the ones who deserve arrest continue their skulking with little interference and under the protection of the DOS.

Rounding up there's the next degree, "19Lib", with its Symbol:

"A gang of robbers in hiding" which also seems tres descriptive of current events yet I confess to feeling a slight tinge of a a robber barons of 1892 flavor with this degree...puts me in mind of them and their descending spawns who now ravage the world's natural resources and enslave populations just as their pappies and grandpappies loved to do. They like the "we create jobs" excuse as well.

As in, we ruin your environment, your health, and your life, but hey! at least you have a low-paying job for which you should thank our exalted selves.

Actually, the Alaskan wilderness is about to be sullied with the open-pit Pebble Mine project--gold and copper abounds, they say. NPR mentioned it just today.

Now my custom is to use Dr. Marc Edmund Jones' version of the Symbols--The Sabian Symbols in Astrology, but recently I have glommed onto Lynda Hill's book, 360 Degrees of Wisdom: Charting Your Destiny With the Sabian Oracles so I thought you'd find Lynda's take on "18" and "19Lib" very informative especially with Thursday's New Moon upon the very spot of the US sec Mars (military; police; firefighters; operatives; men between ages 25--35, etc.)

This New Moon occurs during a Mars Hour and with Mars out-of-bounds...working on his own, and now conjunct US natal Jupiter at the "Gamebirds feathering their nests" degree. Expansion comes with a Mars-to-Jupiter transit and someone will be given more credit than is due (another "superb job"? or more credit woes?)

In its Fall in Cancer, Mars is very self-protective, defensive, and emotional and because of retrogradation, we have a long slog until November with this placement of Mars which can bring us anger, frustration, and discord in domestic relations.

Any planets transiting Cancer always highly affect America with her Venus, Jupiter, Sun, and Mercury in the sign of the side-stepping Crab.

Mars to George Bush's chart:

Mars will be conjuncting Bush' natal Sun (and US n Sun) giving a 'surge' of energy and aggression (ugh) and then Bush's natal Saturn before the transit ends, both in his behind-the-scenes, karmic 12th house of the Unconscious.

Mars to Saturn indicates more focus and careful planning yet may have a frustrating or blocking influence as well. And halfway through will be this picture for Bush:

Sun/Saturn = tr Mars: energies feel confined; running hot'n'cold; a sense of futility; seclusion; loneliness; mourning (Tyl; Ebertin.)

There may be a connection to hospitals involved (12th house.)

The Libran New Moon chart has a financial flavor (click-to-enlarge to read a few of my notes.) One monetary factor is that NYSE's natal Moon is conjunct MC, the Goals and Aspirations Point of the chart.

So check out Lynda's excellent article on the New Moon in Libra and simultaneously learn how Dr. Jones 'switched' the Symbols for "18" and "19" Libra when recording them for Elsie Wheeler here.

Over London: chart for the 11 September Eclipse

Image: 11 Sep 2007 Solar Eclipse "19Vir" over London, England, as per request!

Sink or Swim: Sep 11 Eclipse is an excellent article by Lynda Hill, who specializes in Sabian Symbols, and who gives details on Sabian Symbol, "A swimming race" as Tuesday's Eclipse degree word picture (which is the Symbol itself.)

Thanks for the heads-up, Lynda--I've heard that your book, 360 Degrees of Wisdom, is a must-have for all Astrology library shelves, mine very much included.

And I like your method of looking to the next degree for clues about what we may want to prepare for. To me it seems to be all process, aka e-volution. A smidge like using Tarot cards, isn't it? Preparation is a useful thing--and it's good stewardship as well. Aids us in slowing down and smelling the green tea simmering.

Most often I tend to look at the degree before (unconscious), the degree itself, and the next, for 'how it will get on' info. One degree is always involved in becoming another, isn't it? And the snake eats its tail once again.

Plus, I agree with you, Lynda, on Elsie Wheeler--a fascinating lady! You have a lot of articles to read--and that's just your blog--Good Show!
