Astrological Forecast of the USA: 239th Birthday Reading

by Raphaem Simons


July 4, 2015 marks the 239th birthday of the USA. Astrological progressed and directed charts were drawn up to see what's in store.

At a glance, between all of these charts, Mars has most aspects.

1. The progressed chart has progressed Mercury trine natal Mars; 

2. converse progressed chart has converse progressed Mars separating from opposition to natal Mars;

3. converse progressed Jupiter is conjunct natal Mars;

4. converse progressed Mars is opposite converse progressed Jupiter; 

5. directed Mars is separating from square to natal Mercury;

6. directed Saturn is applying to trine natal Mars; 

7. converse directed Mercury is square natal Mars. 

Of these seven aspects, two are good (Mercury trine Mars and Saturn trine Mars), and the other five are essentially evil. Mars is violent. Mars in the natal chart is in Gemini, denoting arguing. Mercury trine Mars this year denotes plenty of that, and plenty of costly legal wrangling. It also denotes dangers of violence on the streets and in schools; this includes potential acts of terrorism.

This is a year of strife. The contentious spirit in America will continue through this year and into 2016, the election year.  Saturn's trine to Mars comes to perfection in 2016 at the time of the elections. A constructive movement is working its way up through all the fighting. Saturn represents the Democrats. They will win the presidency.

The planet of age 239 is Moon. The planet of age 240 is Saturn. This year, significant developments denoted by the Moon are to be noted. In the Gemini rising chart from 1776, the natal Moon is in the 10th house. It points to a woman or women in the highest circles of the Government. It also points to the people in general. The natal Moon is in Aquarius denoting a universal spirit that is developing in the country through this year with all its strife. The people are rising up and are making their voices heard. Next year, 2016, significant developments denoted by Saturn are to be noted. The Gemini rising chart has Saturn in the 4th house denoting the land itself. We have to consider what is happening to the land. Politically, Saturn is also the planet of the Democratic party. Jupiter is that of the Republicans. Since Saturn is in the 4th house of the natal chart, the 4th house being the opposition to the incumbency, we can expect there will be a very loud and strong stand taken by the opposition to the incumbent party in DC toward the elections. The lunation chart of 10/30/16, however, favors the Democrats. Compromises will be reached.

Other outstanding aspects of the charts show Uranus in tight conjunction with the Gemini rising Ascendant. This is a revolutionary time we are in, whether you like it or not. The way Uranus moves, it will transit Gemini in the later '20s when there will be tremendous changes in this country. The last times Uranus transited Gemini were WWII, the Civil War, and the American Revolution.

We also see converse progressed Neptune conjunct the converse progressed Ascendent. This happens in the natal 9th house. It denotes a blind spot this country has in regard to such things as religion, education, and foreign relations and trade. Natal and converse progressed Neptune are in Virgo. Conjunct the converse progressed Ascendent it points to issues concerning dishonesty connected to foods, medicines, and chemicals. The country is being poisoned. The 9th house placement of this conjunction points to legalization of these crimes.

We also have the directed Sun applying to square natal Moon as read in the Gemini rising chart. This only confirms the currently developing strife.
