Has America gone bad because of milquetoast preaching?

The American Revolution, Uranus, and the May 2012 Solar Eclipse

by Jude Cowell

The Shot Heard Round the World on April 19, 1775 marked the beginning of the American Revolution. Preachers played important parts in that time as Chuck Baldwin ably points out in his synopsis of events. But do they still?

Overhead on April 19, 1775, Uranus, planet of revolution, revolt, and sudden upsetting events was at 00Gemini33, the current position of Fixed Star Alcyone, mention of which has turned up in multiple posts here on SO'W of late. To add to the guns and violence of 1775, Mars (militia) and Uranus (rebels) were squaring one another, an explosive condition which visibly and loudly played out in Lexington on that day.

Also, Uranus rose on April 19, 1775 with Menkar from the constellation Cetus the Whale adding a 'victim of the unconscious' flavor of confusion to the proceedings--who fired first, the Americans or the British soldiers who'd come to arrest Samuel Adams and John Hancock?

A Mars/Jupiter square added impatience and carelessness to events of the day, and Pallas (not discovered in 1775, of course, so unconscious then, conscious now) conjoined Moon in freedom-loving Sagittarius which echoes US Moon in Aquarius (co-ruled by none other than Uranus) conjunct Pallas in our nation's July 4, 1776 horoscope. Mythologically, one of the faces of Pallas was as protector of the nation-state, as you know, and in Mundane Astrology, Moon = We the People. Our sovereign nation needs our protection once again in 2012, as it turns out, just as on April 19, 1775!

And curiously, 237 years later, 00Gem21 is the position of the May 20, 2012 Solar Eclipse which creates a time link from 1775 to 2012 as described by their midpoint picture with these potentials:

Sun/Moon = Uranus: intensification of independence within relationships; the urge for freedom; sudden developments; possible break-up; application of ingenuity to complete goals or create new ways of revealing old ideas; unusual twists of fate; lack of adaptability; inner rebellion; shared upsets; sudden conflicts. (Tyl; Munkasey; Ebertin.)

Can you hear The Shot Heard Round the World echoing through the centuries?

thoughts of and on Samuel Adams

"The liberties of our country, the freedom of our civil Constitution, are worth defending at all hazards; and it is our duty to defend them against all attacks. We have received them as a fair inheritance from our worthy ancestors: they purchased them for us with toil and danger and expense of treasure and blood, and transmitted them to us with care and diligence.

It will bring an everlasting mark of infamy on the present generation, enlightened as it is, if we should suffer them to be wrested from us by violence without a struggle, or to be cheated out of them by the artifices of false and designing men." #

Samuel Adams (1722-1803), aka the "Father of the American Revolution."

Oops! the cheating and artifices began years ago, sad to say.

Here's the WIKI article on Samuel Adams if you're interested, and I took a peep at his natal placements for day of birth...his Mercury/Mars conjunction in Libra sextile n Saturn 12Sag57 (Saturn conj US natal ASC in the 'Sibly' chart indicating a long-term and strong relationship.)

Sep 27, 1722, Boston, MA: Moon was in Taurus the entire day so we have a personality blend of Sun Lib/Moon Tau which is a diplomatic combo with a desire for justice.

An Air-Fire blend is a "live wire" type of personality, no matter the signs, and may be blustering and long-winded. Full of ideas and persuasive ability, Air-Fire type tends to be a utopian idealist...just what America needed at the time, bluster and all.

Sun Lib/Moon Tau has a very good business sense (for beer brewing, one assumes, and otherwise!) and is interested in abstract ideas which are put across with impartial passion.

With both Libra and Taurus ruled by Venus, art and music are well-loved, and people and relationships are of primary importance. Adams believed that everyone should be heard as this blend supports.

This is an idealist + hedonist blend, a lover of nature with a healthy helping of generosity and friendliness; plus, this blend gave Adams a patient and balanced commitment to justice which served his nation well.
