The Radical Nation: United States of America

There are quite a number of published horoscopes of the United States of America, with various Ascendant signs (Gemini, Libra, Sagittarius, Scorpio, etc.). I saw a few that have Sagittarius on the Ascendant, which is the correct sign for the U.S.A. However, none of them are in the correct degree of that sign. While there are speculations as to what chart fits best, no one has confirmed beyond a shadow of a doubt which horoscope is the correct one for this nation. Realizing this, I decided in late 2019 to perform the task of finding, once and for all, the true horoscope of this nation. In order to accomplish this task, I did an INCARN run for the entire day of July 4, 1776, for the exact location of 520 Chestnut Street, Philadelphia, PA 19106—with the coordinates of 39N56.56, 75W08.59.

The morning part of the day (5 AM Run) can be ruled out because Congress meetings did not start until 9 AM according to the records kept in the Library of Congress (A Century of Lawmaking for a New Nation: U.S. Congressional Documents and Debates, 1774 to 1875 Journals of the Continental Congress, Volume 5.). The 11 AM RUN can also be ruled out because it reverts back to 9 AM and earlier and the Declaration was not authenticated until the afternoon. The 11 PM RUN time can be ruled out because meetings were adjourned daily at 5 PM. So, the only time of the day this could have occurred was in the late afternoon/early evening. Hence, the 5 PM RUN was the obvious choice and time of day with which to start testing and using the process of elimination until the right horoscope was found. That 5 PM time alone calculated 24 possible Incarnation times/charts in the signs of Sagittarius, Scorpio, and Libra.

After eliminating all but one Incarnation time, I found the 04° 24′ Sagittarius ASC (20° 18 Virgo MC, with Neptune conjunct the MC in 10th house) to be the only chart that corresponded to every significant event that occurred in the United States.

Neptune and Saturn are parallel to the MC and in the tenth house. Saturn in this location coincides with how the legal and medical professions are held in high regard. Neptune in this location has the same regard for the acting and movie industry. Neptune represents being an idealized nation whereas Saturn represents the law of the land—but not without constant changes, amendments, making anew (another property of Saturn). Libra represents balancing the scales of justice, which are always shifting left to right and back again.

Uranus sits on the angle in both longitude and declination. Its alignment with the ASC/DSC axis and location in the seventh house is representative of a radical people, individualism, and independence. The Moon in Aquarius further enhances those traits among the public in our nation.

The huge focus of planets in the seventh and eighth houses places emphasis on cooperative relationships, partnerships, negotiations, contracts, social economics, rights, properties, ownership, and use of public resources. Mars’ square to the MC and Neptune in the tenth house is indicative of the many instances of people fighting the powers that be. Its T-square to the MC/IC axis shows the impacts of such battles between two factions pertaining to those in power and those in households, homes, families.

This chart can be analyzed more in-depth for those who are interested in studying it. But for now, I want to provide the proof. I’ve tested dozens of significant dates, and each one showed astrological aspects that correlated with the nature and timing of an event. I included 12 events. To see the charts, double click them, and a new window will open to show an enlarged view.
