Posts Tagged ‘Aries Point’
Below my celebratory gabfest there’s a celebration-gone-wild video and a little Astrology for your birthday this Thursday, so watch your Jupiterian step!
The brief video embedded below shows an event that some may call ‘a blast from our past’ and which on one level is described in America’s July 4, 1776 natal chart (5:10 pm LMT) as the Mars-ruled Immum Coeli (IC), at the bottom of the chart, a place where roots run deep and which shows that our ancestors, forefathers, and founders fought in and aided the American Revolution (and in earlier conflicts, and certainly later ones.)
US natal IC @00Aries53 is ruled by Mars and has the Aries Point upon it (IC = the HOW? sector of the chart) denoting times when events that may affect the masses tend to occur upon the world stage. The Aries Point (00Aries00:00) is a degree in the Zodiac of recognition, fame, and prominence along with the three other Cardinal Points where activity has been observed over the centuries to have manifested when Cardinal Points are triggered, catalyzed, or simply visited by planets in their courses.
(Progressions have a say, too.)
So upon our US natal IC is the me-first sign of Aries which allows the ruler of impulse-conflict-action and aka the archetypal ‘god of war’–Mars–to tell us about what drains our nation–what siffons off our energy, manpower, monetary resources, natural bounty, and more–and how America shall end (IC/4th house of Partings and Separations.) Which is not to say the ruling class hasn’t almost throttled the Collective into oblivion already. Yet a sigh escapes and we know it won’t help our common cause directed at maintaining America as a sovereign nation to ignore the fact that as a nation we have a violent streak at our roots, in our core, our very being–and with natal Chiron in Aries/4th house as well.
But at this moment (reminds Chiron!), none of this has to be a fatal condition for America, just a telling one.
So, Happy 237th Birthday, America!
A sincere wish from one of your many Children of the Revolution, Jude Cowell
Now if you’re a history buff, this might be interesting if you’ve not seen it – or as a review, if you have:
A Chronological List of Dates for US historical events for use in rectification work on the several versions of natal charts for America.

Which is the truest, most descriptive birth chart for our nation? Can all be of use on some level (ex: our Scorpio Rising chart as a natal chart for secret agencies, spies, secret or invisible government, and such other arachnids as those?)
Astro-Note: if my schedule works as planned during the upcoming days, a Report (PDF) concerning America’s Jupiter Return of July 22, 2013 will be available for electronic delivery by mid-July! As you know, in our Sag Rising chart, Jupiter is chart-ruler making the adventurous planet very prominent in all US affairs.
Watch for an announcement via my Twitter feed (@judecowell), here on the Threshold, or at Stars Over Washington if and as you may, and visit there to order your copy of my US Solar Return 2013 Report from the sidebar, top. jc
Thanks, and don’t burn the grilled corn on the cob!
Happy Spring! especially to those who use the Sun’s return to 00Aries00, aka the Aries Point, as the beginning of the natural year, aka Spring.
And if you use America’s ‘Sibly’ chart (July 4, 1776 5:10 pm LMT) or the Rudhyar chart which is within a degree on the angles (appr 5:13 pm LMT, if I remember correctly) then you know that the IC (Immum Coeli) of the chart is now being visited by today’s Sun which will transit the 4th House of America’s natal chart.
4th House is the Domestic Scene (including what is needed to feel psychologically ‘at home’), the homeland, or in a word, HOME. It is the department of life in a horoscope which encompasses Real Estate, so will the Sun’s warm rays help ease real estate problems in the US?
Although negative factors are affecting America’s natal chart now such as transformative Pluto 1Cap+ lining up to oppose natal planets Venus, Jupiter, and Sun in the next few years, today’s entry of the Sun into Aries and the US 4th House highlights and warms our domestic scenes perhaps bringing some small relief to our ongoing worries.
And for 2008, there’s Jupiter in opposition to the US’s money/business line-up in Cancer (Venus, Jupiter, Sun)–here’s a link to my discussion of these transits the pinch of which we are feeling now:
Yet hope springs eternal and never more than in the season of Spring!
