The astrogeographical resonance coordinates of Washington
The Astrogeographical position of Washington for morphogenetic field level 1 which describes the supraregional, global topics of resonance of the US capital and government: the astrogeographical longitude coordinate of the US capital Washington is located at 6° Cancer and it`s latitude coordinate at 27° Leo. These astrogeographical resonance coordinates provide a highly relevant definition for examining the international comparison of the role and situation of the governments, political, social, cultural and economical situation of the USA.
The confrontation of the emotional concentration, puritanism and emancipation of the 6°Cancer resonance with the self-centering royalism and boasting luxury of the 27° Leo aspect can be understood through the antagonism between the craving of settlers for independence in the Northern States and the hyper-centralism of the land owner castes and in the Southern States.
Washingtons resonance coordinate in Leo the sign of absolutism, hierarchical rule and the definite climax of the appeal for centralism explains the importance of the appeal to anti-federalism for the capitals of super-large countries. Important capitals of super-large countries with capitals in Leo are Beijing (3°LEO-17°SAG) and New Delhi (26°LEO-3°TAU). Moscow (2°TAU-12°CAN) the 4th capital of the top 4 group of super-large and super-centralist countries has one coordinate in the 2nd most important resonator of centralism at 2°Taurus and one in the No. 3 of centralist zodiac signs at 12°Cancer.
Capitals as centers of the morphic and morphogenetic fields of nations
In mundane astrology astrological data of the foundation of countries, nations, parliaments and governments and birth data of heads of state are examined as indications of important central issues, time lines of development and all kinds of issues regarding the countries.
I want to show here how the astrogeographical data from my Astrological World Map calculation can be used for a deeper examination of the relationship between transit cycles and the places on earth where events occur. After intense studies and comparisons of the astrogeographical resonance degrees of the places where national capitals are located with events I have come to the conclusions that their positions function as centers not only of the national politics and governments but also of the morphic fields of the nations.
The pulse of transit cycles of Pluto and Neptune in relation to Washington
The transit cycles of the outer planets Pluto, Neptune, Uranus are interpreted as analogies of long-term processes of development in astrology. The following diagrams provide an overview of their transits in relation to the astrogeographical resonance coordinates of Washington.
US State capitals in astrogeography
I`m currently working on a deeper study of the comparison of the astrogeographical resonance degrees of the 50 US State capitals in regard to their roles in the national morphic field, US and single state history.
Future Transits of the outer planets in relation to the US Capital
While I`m writing this article in summer of 2015 the highly problematic transits of the outer planets Neptune, Uranus, Pluto and Saturn that marked the first Obama presidency between May 2008 and March 2013 are over. That could provide the “hope” for a recovery of future US governments from the problems installed into the US` financial, political, ecological and human rights situation during the G.W. Bush presidency. But the experience with astrogeographical data is that the lack of tight tension from the outer planets opens up opportunities for the unhindered expansion of the ruling administration and the plundering of the resources of the people through the lobbyists that influence and/or determine the government. That was the case not only during the 9/11 events but also during the second G. W. Bush presidency.
Sun-Saturn-Jupiter conjunction square to Moscow during the 2021 Presidential inauguration
During the coming US Presidential inauguration on 20 January 2021 the Sun will be joined and the defense system against Russian influence on the US government will be stimulated by a conjunction of Saturn at 4° and of Jupiter at 7°Aquarius.
US presidential inaugurations are traditionally held with the Sun at 0°Aquarius square the 2°-3°Taurus astrogeographical resonance coordinate of the Russian capital and seat of government in Moscow and also opposite the 3°Leo astrogeographical resonance coordinate of Beijing.
The astrological chart for the inauguration of the next US President on 20 January 2021
A – Sun-Saturn-Jupiter conjunction square to Moscow
During the coming US Presidential inauguration on 20 January 2021 the Sun will be joined and the defense system against Russian influence on the US government will be stimulated by a conjunction of Saturn at 4° and Jupiter at 7°Aquarius with the Sun position. The outcome of the election could bring a considerable progress in the independence of the USA from Russia.
This Sun-Saturn-Jupiter conjunction in the sign of Uranus` rulership will occur in “preparation” meaning before the exact square transits of both planets to Uranus. This situation explains that the inauguration will occur shortly before the active confrontation of the resulting problems from the 4 years phase of Russian influence over Washington will become effective.
B – The role of Uranus
In the inauguration chart Uranus has to be identified as the planetary representative of the Trump supporters, because:
The ties of the Trump government with the alliance of the US fascist and racist propaganda machinery that dominates the Republican Party and the extremely efficient neo – fascist war propaganda spread by Russian Secret Services that brought Trump to power and caused the Brexit decision in 2016 were reflected in the exact Uranus opposition to London`s 24°Libra resonance coordinate during the United Kingdom EU-Membership vote of 2016 and the return of Uranus to the 20°Aries position from the inauguration of Adolf Hitler on Jan, 30 1933 during the Presidential inauguration of Trump on Jan, 20 2017.
C – A new President
The Jupiter- Saturn conjunction will be placed in house 10. An astrological conclusion that has to be drawn from this is that a new President will be inaugurated that replaces the current one. The ideal and stabilizing effects of the constellation of the Jupiter -Saturn conjunction (constellation of the golden section) indicates that the coming president will seek to overcome the splitting of the people and society and the paralysis of the government institutions through harmonizing Jupiter (subjective thinking) and Saturn (factual reality) in order to make the government, state and political decisions more effective.
The spectacular inefficiency and corruption of the US State and government during the Trump Presidency will have to be confronted especially by Saturn who as the house ruler of mid-heaven (house 10) rules the outcome of the inauguration bringing along with him Pluto who will be in the strongest possible position of all planets (mid-heaven) into the government. At 25°Capricorn Pluto will also be placed near the degree of the US Natal Pluto Return (27°Capricorn) into the government.
Pluto conjunct mid-heaven and on the last degrees of Capricorn indicates that the new President will have to rely on the power of the existing political laws, rules, institutions and the support of the commanders of the US military forces to prevent the plans of the US Neo-Fascist/Russian conspiracy to attempt some sort of a coup D` Ètat.
D – Kamala Harris as a representative of the Uranus -Pluto topics and generation
The choice of Kamala Harris as the Vice President during the Joe Biden Presidency reflects the need for confrontation of hereditary Pluto-Uranus topics in US social legislation, the political system and political culture.
In Kamala Harris` natal chart Saturn in Aquarius near mid-heaven stands for the efficiency of making use of existing resources in order to work the exorcising of political corruption. Saturn seems even more spectacular and efficient here as it stands conjunct the 27°Aquarius astrogeographical resonance coordinate of Paris and exactly opposite the 27°Leo position of Washington and on the descendant of Trump`s birth ascendant.
This Saturn position can be understood as an expression of an effect of re-connecting US politics with the traditions and roots of the American revolution and constitution.
It is important to understand that and how much Kamala Harris stands for the unfolding of the political experience of the Pluto-Uranus conjunction generation (1962 – 1969). That generations karmic issue in the nexte 4 years of presidential rule can be expected to lie in fighting the patterns of castration of human potentials worked by last presidency: the moral and social example given by the image of a male patriarch-king-presidency of a super corrupt, wreckless demagogue accompanied by a prostituting house-cat-wife that shuts up her mouth in the name of the Trump dynasty.
The Pluto-Uranus-Venus conjunction in house 4 of Kamala Harris birth chart ruled and healed by an exact opposition from Virgo`s sign ruler Chiron in house 10 stands for her aim to redirect human potentials into self-responsibility and away from the toxic determination of fate through racial and social background, the hypercapitalist infiltration and demagogic pseudo-religion, the symptomatic defeat of US democratic institutions, society and culture and the periodical plundering of the resources of the American people by gangs of robbers like the Bushs or Trumps.
Kamala Harris Saturn is on the point of luck in Trumps chart – I had never considered that aspect in synastry before. She sort of provides stability to a holistic inspection of his pseudo-luck from the point of view of karmic reality……
I `m also surprised that her ascendant is on his sun position – which is always an aspect of natural competition. But here it also means knowing where someone takes his tricks from.
E – The Mars – Uranus conjunction in house 12
The square between the Mars – Uranus conjunction in house 12 and the officially ruling Saturn-Jupiter conjunction in house 10 indicates that plans for an attempted Coup D` Ètat and all kinds of illegal activities directed against the legally elected central government do exist.
The position of the Moon in the 12th sub-division of Aries and in house 12 shows that activities of uncontrollable aggression, hate crimes and organised murder are to be expected during the inauguration and in the coming years as a long-term effect of the spreading of hate through the neo-fascist and racist propaganda worked by the Trump supporters and the Russian Cold War II propaganda.
The Impeachment Inquiry against Donald Trump
Speaker of the House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi announced the opening up of an impeachment inquiry against D. Trump on 24 September at 17:04.
As a major reason why the inquiry was started now Mrs Pelosi named the Presidents assumed illegal activity when using a large sum of military aid as a means to put pressure on Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in order to help him damage Trump`s opponent Joe Biden in the coming presidential elections. Trump has acknowledged he moved to put the brakes on roughly $400 million in military aid to Ukraine about a week before the call.
What do the transits of Sun, Mars, Saturn and South-North Nodal axis on that day in relation to the astrogeographical resonance coordinates of the capital and centers of the national morphic fields in Washington (6°CA + 27°LE) and Moscow (12°CA + 2°TA) reveal about that step?
Saturn + South Node were opposite the 12° Cancer resonance coordinate of Moscow (12°CA – 2°TA) + the North Node approaching the exact conjunction explaining the impeachment inquiry as a step directed against the Russian influence on the current government.
The Sun as sign ruler of the 27°Leo resonance coordinate of Washington had ingressed into Libra opening up the pressure (through square transit) on the 6°Cancer resonance position of the center of the national morphic field currently occupied by the Trump admin from representatives inside of Washington. The fact that the Sun is a ruler of Washington explains that the step came from within the capital.
The maximum square of the Sun will be reached on Monday 30th 2019. After that the next climax will be from the Mars square to Washington on Oct. 14th. As this Mars square transit appears as a direct consequence of the transit a next important step in the process is to be expected for the middle of October.
The Total Solar Eclipse of 21 August 2017 conjunct Washington`s astrogeographic position at 27° Leo and the era of neofascism
Full article: The “Great American Solar eclipse” in astrogeography. Data sources: Path Through the United States
The Total Solar Eclipse on 21 August 2017 will take place at 28°52`56″ Leo right next to the astrogeographical position of Washington of 27° Leo directly overshadowing the capital of the USA and with Uranus in Aries indicator for the populist and neofascist movement sweeping across our planet since the entry of Uranus into Aries in May 2010. Even the impact of the Saturn-Lilith conjunction at 21°Sagittarius the sign of direct profits and success by all means can be expected to be supportive of the changes brought about in the USA through the new neofascist Trump government.
During a solar eclipse the Moon as indicator for the suppressed and unexpressed, subconscious, unborn, the darkness itself, pending and waiting spirits, unfelt emotions, individuals whose umbilical cords have not been cut overshadow the Sun and light.
There is a long list of issues on the agenda that should be explored as potential topics to be dealt with by the stimulation of development through the energies set free by the eclipse.
Target USA: The Unity of the USA is definitely in question and the secession of some states from the Union is a logical consequence to be called for even though I doubt that this will actually happen. The “Fort Sumter” transit of Neptune into the square position to the 6° Cancer coordinate of Washington in April 2025 will be the final test for the stability of the Union. Threats to the Union may be felt as negative – and they may well be – but the processes behind them are to be understood as constructive in order to solve the underlying issues and integrate new aspects of development.
Target civil rights and democratic institutions: It is to be expected that the Trump administration will attempt to abolish more and more democratic rights the longer it stays in power. All States may have to deal with the question: staying in the USA or protecting democratic rights.
Target NATO: The splitting and as far as the Russian side is concerned the abolition of NATO is a logical consequence and a central aim of the Trumputin collaboration. That may be felt as positive and in many ways it certainly is. But a for example Russian – American – British – Saudi Arab collaboration would be an even more powerful alliance than NATO has ever been. Such a military alliance between Russia and USA is clearly headed at the installation of a Russia – US controlled world government.
Target EU – the largest economy in the world: The social networks propaganda machine built up by the US – Russian – British secrete services when operating together can be expected to manage to split up the largest economy in the world the EU through a mixture of tactical manoeuvres and direct military pressure on the East European States especially Ukraine, Baltic States, Poland, Belarus, Bulgaria, Hungary, Romania but as well on Germany and France. The first targets in Europe directly threatened through the Solar Eclipse position at 28° Leo are: Sofia (Bulgaria) located at 27° Taurus – 19° Scorpio, Talinn (Estonia) at 27° Scorpio – 13° Aries and Minsk (Belarus) at 26° Leo and 0° Capricorn. The eclipse position of Mars at 20°41` Leo falls in exact square to EU capital Brussels` astrogeographic position at 22° Scorpio – indicating a new direct attack on the European economy, currency, independence and all EU institutions with the clear aim to weaken or take over control over the EU. The August 2017 eclipse position of Chiron on 28° Pisces as the ruler of mid-heaven will be conjunct the position of the Central European solar eclipse of 20 March 2015 at 29° Pisces. Compare: Astrogeographical position of Berlin and Future Transits.
This means that Chiron`s position will be conjunct Amsterdam (!!!) square to Rome and Paris and in exact opposition to Berlin. It can be assumed that the Trumputin coalition will take immediate measures to control the role of the 5 foundation members of the EU from the Treaty of Rome. Compare: The Astrological Chart for the EU and its Parliament
Pseudo Target Pseudo-Islamism: Islamism is a US-Saudi created political instrument and not a plausible realistic common target of the Russia – USA alliance. It can be expected that Islamism will be further bred in order to keep it alive as a propaganda target – the realistic function for which it has been created. Another plausible purpose Islamism will be used for in the future is the control over Africa through destabilization. A side effect of the employment of Islamism for that purpose is the pressure on the European democracies through migration.
Future transits of Saturn
The next really tight planetary challenge for the US government will be Saturn`s transit over 6° Capricorn in opposition to Washington. The start of this process will be triggered through Saturn`s ingress into Capricorn the sign of reforms and stability on 20 December 2017 and end in December 2018. The transit stands for the legal challenge of the government and the conscious recapitulation of problems unsolved in the past. It is an ideal moment for all reforms and updates made to protect the stability of the American Constitution and the country as a whole.
After that the important Saturn – Pluto conjunction of 13 January 2020 will occur with the North Node at 8°Cancer right between the astrogeographical resonance coordinates of Washington at 6° and of Berlin at 10° Cancer. The breath-taking speed of climate change will make that issue the most important of all issues for humanity as there appears to be no possibility to stop the process any more. The conjunction of Saturn with Pluto and in Capricorn appears as the astrological image of traumatic (Pluto) inevitability (Capricorn).
Although Saturn will not make a direct aspect to the US capital the position of the North Node naturally points at the important role of Washington making it the actual aim (North Node) of the climax of the Pluto-Saturn conjunction. The USA will certainly be forced to take over a more responsible role in dealing with the problematic effects of climate change.
After that Saturn`s next transit in tension to Washington will also take place in opposition to the resonance degrees of the US government. It will be effective between May 2022 and March 2023 when Saturn passes 27° Aquarius in opposition to Washington`s astrogeographical latitude coordinate at 27° Leo.
Uranus in the Pearl Harbor constellation between May 2024 and April 2026
One year before Neptune returns to the “Fort Sumter square position” to Washington from the beginning of US Civil War (1861-65) Uranus will return to the Pearl Harbor constellation over the square position to Washington at 27° Leo. This stimulation of working on unresolved issues through Uranus will last from May 2024 until April 2026. Uranus square transits to governments for relatively unexpected or at least uncontrollable foreign influences. Since Uranus will be on the degree of wealth, markets and highest profits dealing with China, Russia and other competitors for the role of the worlds superpower should come to a new climax with the consequence of new global trade deals. Uranus generally relates to the important topics of territorial globalization and of a holistic abstraction of limited national and/or subjective perspectives. And all aspects related to impediments of personal, social, cultural and technological development. Finally Uranus in Taurus stands for the international competition of travelling to Moon and Mars. The phase of construction of habitable spaces can be expected to be intensified áfter the Uranus ingress into Gemini in April 2026
The simultaneous influence of Neptune who usually brings back the awareness of suppressed reality, contamination and destruction of purest natural resources could indicate the dramatic effects of climate change on top of all the political factors. The fracking gold rush “undermined” by the globalized neo-fascist lobbying of the 2010s when Uranus passed Aries might come to a plausible and sudden end.
Neptune enters the Fort Sumter Constellation in April 2025
The “Fort Sumter Constellation” or “Secession Constellation” which repeats itself when Neptune enters into Aries triggering the square position to Washington`s 6°Cancer coordinate is due in April 2025 and will be effective until about April 2029. This will be the 2nd ever transit of Neptune over that position in the history of the USA and the first time since April 1861. Even if there was no new secession to be expected the emancipation of single states in the USA from the grip of the out of date majority voting system, the two-party system and the manipulative, commercialized US type of presidential elections may be stimulated during that period.
Transits of the Outer Planets in relation to Washington and the history of the USA
Neptune in opposition to Washington: 2008-2012
The lack of tight aspects of tension from the outer planet marked the period between January 2004 and May 2008 providing opportunities for the unhindered plundering of the financial resources of the american people by the Bush administration.
It was only at the moment of Neptune`s transit through the last degrees of Aquarius and in straight opposition to Washington`s resonance coordinate at 27° Leo since May 2008 when the public awareness of the disaster caused by the Bush government became fully effective for US economy and fully visible for american voters. The world economy went into one of its deepest self-organized crises in history.
Neptune´s opposition transit was initial for the Obama presidency. It explains Obama´s background as representative of a minority and the difficult situation under which he took over responsibility for the problems created by his predecessor who had gone beyond all limitations in spending american money and the destabilization of control over the banking sector as well as the secret services. Neptune´s heavy challenge of Obama`s stand was effective until February 2012 when he managed to get rid of another deadly factor in recent US politics: Hillary Clinton.
2010-2012: Pluto in opposition and Saturn in a square to Washington
Between January 2010 and December 2012 Pluto moving between 3° and 7° Capricorn passed in an extremely tight opposition to Washington`s coordinate at 6° Cancer. During the same period Uranus moved into the sensitive position at 0° Aries (compare attack on Fort Sumter) in May 2010 adding to the tension caused by Pluto until March 2013. And in addition to that Saturn`s transit into Libra between October 2009 and October 2010 made the year 2010 an intensely questioning phase for Washington. The development in this period also brought really fundamental progress and reforms within the USA. Among these are: The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Obama Care) on 23 March 2010 and the retreat of troops from Irak before 16 December 2011.
The start of the publication of data about illegal and criminal practices of the US army and government institutions in nearly all countries of the world by Wikileaks since 2010 fell into that era. The grip of the secrete services on the government which did not allow democratic recapitulation of these practices by the government and democratic institutions fell in to that era too. Therefore the question has to be asked in how far these transits of Pluto and Saturn actually explain the forces that blocked the democratic institutions.
Obama in the grip of the almighty weapon production lobbyists, wars, police state, radicalized republicans, hedge funds and unprecedented debt crisis created by the Bush administration and US capitalism (Saturn-Pluto): Altogether it can be concluded that the effects of these transits worked by threatening and blocking the government And not only has the US state been financially ruined and the american people`s money been shifted into the hands of the supporters of the Bush conspiracy but also has an extremely powerful group been created that now controls all the money taken from the USA`s financial resources. The partial abolition of civil rights and thus the partial abolition of the american constitution introduced by the Bush government can also be seen as having become more and more effective, habitual and threatening during the era of Neptune, Pluto, Saturn and Uranus`s pressure on the degrees of resonance of Washington. This shows also the close relation of Saturn and Pluto conjunctions with totalitarian systems, ideologies and fascism which in the case of this period exerted its pressure on the government from within and not from outside of the country.
Transits during the G.W. Bush Presidency between 2001 and 2009
The first year of the G.W, Bush Presidency can consequently be interpreted as a phase characterized by the lack of problematic transits and a time of unhindered expansion (Jupiter conjunct Washington) and even voluntary creation of problematic issues until 2002. This also means that the problematic transits of the outer planets in relation to the astrogeographical positions of governments are not necessarily negative or actual problems but in fact regulative factors and stimulators of solutions. A serious misunderstanding in predictive astrology often is that the “problematic transits” are mistaken for the problematic issues.
The WTC terrorist attack
The World Trace Center attack of 11 September 2001 occurred 8 1/2 months after the inauguration of G.W. Bush. Jupiter the planet of victory was just doing a slope across the 6°Cancer resonance position of Washington between August 2001 and April 2002 indicating a period of planned actions and victories for the US government. Such Jupiter (return of Zeus) transits are important indications of situations where national governments achieve control over their countries. This can be a straight astrogeographical indication that the 9/11 events were being controlled by the government or government related institutions.
The first problematic transit during the George W. Bush presidency was the transit of Uranus the planet of globalization in opposition to the 27° Leo resonance coordinate of Washington between January 2002 and January 2004 which as its climax the illegitimate attack on Iraq on 19 March 2003 a country which in no way had been involved in the Nine Eleven event. This war represented Uranus`s opposition to Washington and as such an attack on the autonomy, integrity and authority of future US governments.
US attack on Iraq
Like in the case of the start of the Vietnam War the US President made use of the method of giving out false accusations against the Saddam Hussein government as a pretext for the invasion of no less than 466.000 US troops on Iraq which was begun on 20 March 2003.
The attack had the strategical aim of destroying the Iraqi army, administration and police, disintegrate the Iraqi state and so pave the way for pseudo-islamic terrorist armies financed by US top ally Saudi Arabia and its Sunnite Gulf State allies to take over control in large parts of the country. The invasion of the Saudi -Arabian/Gulf State Terrorist armies in Iraq were launched directly after the withdrawal of all US troops in 2011.
The US Invasion of Iraq was begun during period of the transit of Uranus the ruler of globalization over the 27° Aquarius opposition degree to the 27° Leo resonance coordinate of Washington between February 2002 and January 2004 which means that it was part of the projections made out of the World Trade Center that had been organized by professional terrorists from US top ally Saudi Arabia.
The withdrawal of US troops from Iraq was begun in 2007 and ended in December 2011 under heaviest oppositions from Neptune at 28°Aquarius to the 27°Leo resonance coordinate and of Pluto at 6°Capricorn to the 6°Cancer position of the US capital.
Neptune can be considered as a symptomatic indicator for giving up territorial claims whereas Pluto stands for the invasion of the pseudo-islamic fascist terrorist armies send into Iraq by the Saudi Arabian/Gulf State sponsors who tool over control in large parts of Iraq, Syria, Libya and a number of African countries as a consequence of the US deal with their Saudi Arabian partners.
The Birth Chart for the USA: Washington in the Foundation Chart of the USA
On the question of the most plausible natal chart for the USA from the point of view of rythmical activations of the 7 year per house rythm compare my article: Rythmical activations in the Powell Chart compared to the Sibley Chart.
There is an endless discussion on the best astrological chart for the foundation of the USA. I suggest to read some really valuable statements on that discussion in the Mundane Astrologers Facebook group. It has to be understood that a serious astrological evaluation of such charts is surely not one aimed at establishing the one and only true chart for the “Birth of the nation” but rather seel to understand which stage of the birth process is reflected in any of the 25 (or more) versions of a US natal chart that are currently circulated around.
Anyway there may be several complications to be considered astrologically unsolvable in these attempts:
- The question whether the declaration of the decision of the vote on the Declaration of Independence and new constitution is taken as the foundation moment or rather a final declaration two days later is a question of subjective evaluation.
- The square aspect between Mars in Gemini and the Neptune/Lilith conjunction in Virgo during the climax of the foundation phase of the USA between Juli 2nd and 4th can be read as the systemical problem behind the struggle for the master authority on the evaluation of the one and only natal chart here. Mars the planet of warfare in Gemini the sign of intelligence stands for the aggressive competition in lying, spying, destructive manipulation, neutralization of facts and use of information for trigger preaching while being lost in unclear emotions like pseudo or caste.patriotism that seeks to overwrite the deeper questions of spiritual identity, truthfulness and the more abstract and holistic level of truth (Neptune). This lack of abstract orientation appears to be a systemical pattern deeply installed into US culture for the purpose of controlling the majority of voters in presidential elections just like in astrological discussions.
Various charts with a number of different birth times have been suggested for July, 4. This date is recapitulated as the day of the Declaration of Independence. I have personally come to the conclusion that the July, 4 charts are not the best option. My impression is that this date may help to describe the official festivities rather than the factual political event of the independence. But no matter which date or birth time is used from an astrogeographical point of view all charts calculated for the first days of July 1776 have one important astrological transit in common:
In the Foundation Chart of the USA Venus was conjunct Jupiter on the astrogeographical position of Washington (6° CAN) – 14 years before the decision was made to built the new capital!!!
Between 1st and 4th of July the astrogeographic position of Washington at 6° Cancer was occupied by an intensely beneficial, luxurious, growth orientated, economically promising conjunction of Jupiter at 5°-6° Cancer with Venus at 0°-3° Cancer and the Sun between 10° and 13°Cancer. This “harmonic resonance” between the birth planets of the American Constitution and the new capital area identifies the Washington area as a highly auspicious site for the issues of the Declaration of Independence, the country`s political stability and it`s economical growth. A critical review of the constellation should not fail to recognize that the unhindered expansion of Venus as the planet of markets. expansion of territory, possession of land, economical resources and financial income when stimulated through the conjunction with ruthless Jupiter the planet of success, personal advantages, mental corruption, expansion, profits, gains and victory at any costs could appear as the aspect here that wanted the unhindered destructive expansion of: European rule over the continent, the mentality of consuming resources, the exploitation of the land, contamination of ground waters (Cancer), well aimed (Jupiter) extinction of the native population (Venus), the suppression of humanistic concerns, spiritual identity and self-regulation through the installation of a political system based on emotional manipulation and hyper-capitalistic control over social and political life.
All the four personal planets from the Declaration of Independence in Cancer emphasize the process of conception, pregnancy, birth, motherhood and fertility of a new national morphic field, of installing a home in the new land and with the topics of emotional independence and individuality as its strongest aspects.
The Sibley Chart – for Independence Day
In the hypothetical Sibley Chart for the foundation of the USA Jupiter exactly conjunct the 6° Cancer astrogeographical resonance coordinate of Washington was joined by Venus at 3° Cancer in a planetary constellation of territorial, financial and social expansion and fertility in house 7 the house of stage presentation, relationship orientation and openness. Mars the planet of warfare was in Gemini the sign of politics and indicator of the belief in technology, practical magic,superficial information and in house 7 in a constellation of war and weapon orientated policies.
No matter whether the 2nd or 4th of July is taken as the birth date of the USA: one of the key aspects of the US natal situation was the self-destructive square of the Mars position to a conjunction of Neptune the planet of spirituality, self-healing, pure essence of soul, spirit and waters and of peaceful solutions with Lilith indicator for suppressed truth, identity and traumatic pain. Neptune s position in Virgo the sign lastingness, ecology, protection of nature, health, reason was most aggressively eclipsed by the violent expansionism of a Mars position that seeks to forget about and eclipse any limitations to the aggressive expansion of consumer orientated robbery, murder and crime management.
Washingtons second astrogeographical coordinate at 27° Leo was challenged through an aspect of exact opposition of the Moon at 27° Aquarius. This Moon position can be interpreted in 2 directions: in regard to the construction site it describes the extreme changes that the area at the mouth of the Potomac River went through in the course of the construction of the new capital. The contradiction (opposition) of the 27°Aquarius Moon position from the Sibley Chart to the 27°Leo resonance coordinate of the site that was later chosen for the construction of the new capital represents a breath taking resonance between the two astrological factors. This resonance between the Leo (absolutism, french culture, sign of the sun king, hyper-centralism) aspect of Washington D.C. with the 27°Aquarius (revolution, emancipation, liberation from slavery, astrogeographical resonance coordinate of the City of Paris) position of the Moon is not of harmonious but rather of a conflicting character. Though such oppositions should not be judged as negative but rather as traits of the tendency for completion of conflicting parts of holistic systems the questions has to be asked in how far the installation of a system of a semi-royalist Presidential rule in Washington could be able to represent the appeal for freedom and independence as indicated by the 27°Aquarius Moon position.
The hypothetical selection of a birth moment of a nation with this Moon position may look fascinating for a number of imaginary astrological observations. Especially the choice of an unstable Sagittarius ascendant cannot reflect such an unpolitical society, where voters are degraded to cheerleaders of mind-manipulation industries and such stability of government institutions as those of the United States at the same time. Apart from that Sagittarius is known for its appeal for a welfare state, a health insurance system and for supporting justice between the social castes of a society. And for such a progressed moon position in Aquarius it is hardly explainable that the US federal system unlike the City of Paris simply does not allow revolution, socialist movements, radical political demonstrations and general strikes which are so essential for the political mentality of French culture.
The Powell Chart for the US Constitution
The Powell chart for the formal approval of the Lee Resolution of July, 2 1776 is calculated for the decision of the vote on the declaration of independence and the new constitution. Later the 4th of July was settled as the date for the annual celebration of Independence Day considering it as the day of the outcome of the whole process.
After a study of the first three 84 – years cycles of rythmical activation of the planetary positions through the method of the 7 and 12 years rythms I have come to the conclusion that the Sibley Chart appears completely out of resonance with historical events. I found that the so called Powell Chart calculated for the vote and decision on the new constitution reveals a convincing resonance with the really important chain of events in US history and one that throws a really deeper light on the meaning of events in US history. (source: Kepler Community Webinar on the Powell Chart by Gary Lorentzen: “The Powell Chart and the decision to create the United States.”).
The early Capricorn ascendant and the Moon in the very center of the sign at 15° Capricorn explain the extreme stability and particularly the coldness of the political system of the USA. Capricorn explains why in the US political system the influence of dominant companies has more value than the needs and rights of the people. It explains the slavery system, racial discrimination and the dominance of the high income castes over society.
Perspectives on astrological measurement of morphogenetic field structures
The question may arise how we should understand the fact that human intuition unconsciously connects to the morphogentic patterns that underlie the landscape. I want to remind everybody at this point that astrology just like mathematics, physics and all other sciences assumes this pattern of perfect harmonious logical gravitation to hold all single parts of creation together and so provide nature`s patterns for orientation where human perception cannot even think of it. I`m not saying that the speculations about illuminated spiritual guides and highly educated architects building the US capital is all wrong. But don´t forget that this perfect harmony of humans with the morphogenetic field structures is given (to the positive or the negative) everywhere at any time and in all cultures on this planet. In reality it is nothing surprising and not even anything special that can be observed here except that it is always exciting to face the sublime nature of gods creation.
The foundation of the new capital Washington
The Astrological Sunrise Chart for the foundation of Washington through the Residence Act signed into law by President George Washington on July 16, 1790 is calculated for sunrise with equal house system. Mercury at 4°and Chiron at 3° Cancer the rulers of the two Mercury signs Gemini and Virgo were not yet conjunct but moving towards the astrogeographical position of the central government area at 6° Cancer on that day. Their conjunction stands for intense planning, gardening, preservation and self-protection (Chiron as the ruler of Virgo) and hyperactive communication, building roads, bridges and networks (Mercury as the ruler of Gemini).
Saturn at 5°in highly alert, active, male fire sign Aries the sign of action, speed, warfare occupied an exact square position to Washington explaining the foundation of the new capital as an intense challenge to the Washington area including fundamental changes of atmosphere. Saturn in Aries giving the indication of the start of a new era that included fortifying the town and taking care of the construction of a military base here.
The Pluto return in the Natal Chart of the USA in 2022-23
Compare my new article: The first Pluto Return from the foundation of the USA
The first Pluto return to its natal position at 27°
36`54 Capricorn after 247 years of history of the USA will take place two times between 2022 and 2023. American astrologers have discussed the first Pluto return to his “birth” position at 28°Capricorn extensively.
If we assume that Pluto in the US natal charts stands for the habitual traumatic patterns of experience and perception that the Americas of the modern era are based on – these patterns are: unrooted and unhindered occupation, exploitation, destruction and pollution of indigenous cultures and of the land provided by mother earth through the castes of European refugees who rule over the Americas since that era. The burning of the Amazone forests and the pollution of all ancient ground water through Fracking are truly ultimate aims of that Post-European caste mentality. And yes in a land of the free and brave – the aspect of hierarchy and trauma (Pluto) that the caste system and rulers of society (Pluto in Capricorn) rely on, are the freedom to pollute, destroy, shoot and make profits where the holy cow of the dogma of state religion (Pluto in Capricorn) is the ultimate success of the courage to lie and corrupt. That is Pluto`s inheritance in Capricorn.
The american natal Pluto at 28° Capricorn falls exactly on the astrogeographic position of London – which reflects that the majority vote and 2 party system along with the English national culture and language, unhindered colonialism and capitalism of the British Empire in the late 18th century are the historical basis for the US version of the american Pluto. This transit explains how much of a catastrophic event and defeat the American secession was for the British Empire.
But on the other hand and at the same time the foundation of USA also appeared as a process of the planting of a clone of the British Empire – and one which in the 20th century became an essential bigger brother that came to the defense (Pluto) of London in two World Wars.
Jupiter made Washington the capital
Jupiter at 7°45 Cancer was conjunct the astrogeographical position of Washington at 6° Cancer on the day it became the capital of the USA which was the 11th of June 1800. Because of Jupiter`s expansionary effects this aspect clearly describes the expansion of the importance of the the government area in Washington from that moment. And Cancer also explains the intense emotional projections for example as a “capital home of the free and brave” as the Moon as the ruler of Cancer was in Aquarius the sign of freedom, rebellion, self-finding, emancipation and liberation on that day.
Washington`s “Neighbour” Capitals in Cancer
The position at 6° Cancer falls in conjunction with the positions of Berlin at 10° and Moscow at 12° Cancer. Especially the conjunction with Moscow can be evaluated as an extremely important and stabilizing factor which might even have prevented much worse controversies since the beginning of the Cold War between US capitalism and Russia in 1917. As far as the transits of the outer planets are concerned their effects regularly stimulate the position of the US capital between 1 and 4 years before transiting the maximum of any aspects with the capital of Russia. But for the “inner” planets the time in between the maximum effect of transits for Washington and Moscow is only 6 days for the Sun, Venus and Mercury and only 12 hours for the Moon. As far as Berlin is concerned the conjunction between Washington and Berlin can be seen as extremely positive for the City of Berlin particularly regarding the US role after World War 2 with the Air Lift (1948/49) during the Berlin Blockade and the support for West Berlin until 1989.
US Pre-Natal Charts
Capitals appear to manifest as central places of resonance that are capable of serving as sites of central resonance for national morphic fields or systemical fields of nations. They seem to be able to hold countries together, serve as interfaces between the competing regions and allow the development of centralist and/or federalist structures of cooperation within nations and national territories. Their astrogeographical resonance positions seem to be of highest importance for the development of unity of nations. This also means that their resonance coordinates tend to appear as important factors long before the foundation of the cities and nations.
Vasco Núñez de Balboa first discovered the American Pacific Coast with a Moon-Venus conjunction over Washington
The first European expedition that was able to cross the new continent and discover its Eastern coast was led by the spanisch explorer Vasco Núñez de Balboa proving that America is a continent.
The success of the Vasco Núñez de Balboa expedition across the Isthmus of Panama came was achieved under a breath-taking and highly promising Moon-Venus conjunction on the royal degrees between 27° and 29°Leo and conjunct Washington which describes the full impact of the intensity of excitement about the attractiveness and the gold-, profit- and territorial gains rush triggered by the discovery. And it is no wonder that this extremely auspicious planetary constellation fell exactly on the astrogeographical resonance position of what later became the capital of the most wealthy nation in modern times.
The landing of the Mayflower with Saturn conjunct Washington
The landing of “Pilgrim Fathers” on board the Mayflower at Plymouth, Massachussetts brought Saturn the ruler of state religion, traditionalisms, rules and regulations, scarcity, strict formalism and control in Cancer the sign of old English culture, islands, coast lines, modernity, fertility, conception, pregnancy and feeling at home to America. The Pilgrim Fathers were the first independent community of settlers. Their historical role can be seen in the stabilization of a first bridgehead in the process of the colonization of North America..
This is because they landed here during the stabilizing transit of Saturn at 5° Cancer conjunct the 6°Cancer resonance coordinate of the future capital in Washington. Uranus the planet of globalization, abstraction, flying and escaping at 2°Leo occupied the degree of mirrorpoint square t the 27°Leo resonance coordinate of Washington indicating a direct threat to the population of the Potomac delta territory which turned out as relevant centralist area of resonance for the future national morphic field.
The highly aggressive Pluto-Jupiter conjunction in Taurus shows that the landing of the Mayflower was part of an organized hunt for territorial gains and profits directed at no less than the occupation of the new world. Venus the sign ruler of Taurus was conjunct Neptune in a constellation of nomadic experience and the insecurity about territorial possessions.
The position of Mars the planet of warfare, actions and ignition who had just ingressed into Libra triggering a square to the 6°Cancer resonance of Washington is symptomatic of the significance of the “Pilgrim Fathers” community as an early step in the conquering of the future United States landscape field.
American Civil War: the rise of a Neptune square to Washington
American Civil War – stage I: The Secession of South Carolina with Jupiter conjunct Washington
The exact transit of Jupiter the planet of victory and expansion over the 27° Leo resonance coordinate (climax degree of centralism) of the federal capital in Washington in December of 1860 brought the Secession of South Carolina from the United States. Jupiter`s position has to be seen as a strong indication at the victory of Washington in US Civil War and at the expansion of its centralist role in the Union. For an evaluation of the potential of such Jupiter transits see the “Returns of Zeus (Jupiter)” to Athens during the Greek independence of 1828 and the liberation from Nazi Germany in 1944.
But at the same time through the Sun`s entry into Capricorn an into opposition to Washington`s 6° Cancer resonance coordinate triggered extreme tension for the capital, the government and for the Union. And even more so because the Moon passed in a square position to Washington in her/his transit of the first decade of Aries.
Stage II: The Battle of Fort Sumter during the Neptune ingress in Aries
The beginning of the war with the Battle of Fort Sumter on 12/13 April 1861 occurred during the Neptune ingress into Aries thus activating the square position to Washingtons astrogeographic coordinate at 6° Cancer. The challenge to Washington through Neptune that manifested in the secession of the southern states was active all the way throughout American Civil War. And the war could not be stopped before Neptune had made his last transit over the square to the 6°Cancer resonance degree of Washington in 1865. Neptune appeared as a factor that threatened territorial control and possession of land.
The fact that US Civil War began with an attack on a sea fort reflects the important role of the ingress of Neptune as the ruler of Pisces and resonator of the sea into Aries the sign of warfare, action, ignition and the strife for dominance.
Stage III: the capitulation of General Lee with Neptune about to leave the square position to Washington behind
The astrological chart for the end of the American Civil War shows such clear transits to the position of Washington that it is almost an archetypal chart for various chains of interpretation (and meaning) of astrological transits of astrogeographic positions in mundane astrology. As seen in the chart for the attack on Fort Sumter the transit of Neptune into Aries and thus into a square position to the astrogeographic coordinates of Washington had been the most important astrological factor challenging the capital`s position. On the day of the General Lee`s capitulation the Moon was moving in Libra the sign of peace, ceasefires, negotiations in opposition to that Neptune. Neptune`s challenging aspect of the capital´s position was contradicted on that day by the opposition of the Moon and the square of Mars who was moving directly on the coordinate of the capital at 5° Cancer. But only 5 days later on 14 April 1965 the challenging effect of Neptune proved to be still active when President Abraham Lincoln was assassinated.
The assassination of President Garfield in 1881 under a Pluto square
The assassination of President James Garfield on 2 July 1881 at 2:00 a.m. in Washington occurred under the extremely tight square aspect for the US government positions in the form of a Pluto (28°46`Taurus) Venus (25°33`Taurus) conjunction with its midpoint at 27°10`Taurus. Venus role as the ruler of Taurus is a strong indication of purely financial motifs behind the murder. Pluto in Taurus the sign of money, markets, possession of land and control over territories and wealth stood for a period of intense challenge to the government by dominant economical lobbyists.
The assassination of President McKinley in the wake of a Neptune transit conjunct Washington in 1901
The assassination of President William Mc Kinley on 16 September 1901 at 16:07 in Buffalo, Ohio took place with a conjunction of Saturn (9°50`Capricorn) and Jupiter (3°18`Capricorn) with the midpoint at 6°34`Capricorn in exact opposition to the astrogeographical coordinate of the federal government area in Washington. This opposition indicates not only an intense threatening of the position of the government by political opponents but also a critical examination of the corruption of the government by the legal and institutionalized opposition through Capricorns role as the sign of government institutions and administration.
The Moon`s transit over Neptune in the moment of the assassination emphasizes Neptune`s role in the event. Alltogether Neptune`s transit into Cancer and onto the astrogeographical position of the federal government stands for a period of corruption, self-destructivity and intense questioning of the role of the federal government. Compare the self-destructive aspects of the Neptune transit over the 29°Virgo resonance coordinates of Berlin and Tokyo in 1941.
WW1 US Declaration of War
The US Declaration of War against Germany was a defensive reaction onto the renewal of German submarine attacks against the USA that made the entry into WW1 inevitable. The astrological transits that speak for an act of self-defense by the US government were the conjunction of Mars at 8° with Venus at 11° in Aries the sign of German culture. Both planets had recently passed the exact square to the 6° Cancer resonance position of Washington putting pressure on the US government. The fact that these 2 planets were square the 10°Cancer resonance coordinate of Berlin at the same time explains the multi-demensionality and interconnectedness of such transits: for Berlin these transit meant the disastrous effects of decisions recently made. Another transit that explains the defensive character of the decision from the American side was the midday-transit of the Moon over the exact square to Washington at 6° in Libra the sign of peace and justice. Planetary transits in Libra are typical astrological indications for reactions (revenge, balancing the accounts of relationship).
Among the long term transits that exerted pressure on Washington were Uranus at 23°Aquarius marching into opposition to the 27°Leo coordinate of Washington and Pluto at 2°Cancer approaching the exact conjunction with the 6°Cancer position.
The Wall Street Crash of 1929 with Uranus square to Washington
The Great Depression that hit the United States and along with it the world economy between 1929 and 1933 is mostly remembered as an effect of the Wall Street Crash of 1929. But in regard to the developments in the USA – which was the most important economy of the time – its roots have to be searched for in the transit of Neptune the planet of depression conjunct the 27°Leo resonance coordinate of the US capital Washington between September 1926 and August 1929. As in the case of the Neptune transits over Berlin and Tokyo in 1941 Neptune seems to indicate the intoxication, subjugation and paralysis of the population, the parliament and the responsible government institutions who allowed the self-destruction of the country`s wealth and economy.
During the “Black Thursday” events (24 October 1929) that started the Wall Street Crash of 1929 and the the worldwide Great Depression Uranus occupied 8° Aries in an exact square to the 6°Cancer resonance coordinate of Washington. Venus the ruler of Taurus and planet of profits, income, wealth, food, stability, roots and possession of land was at 6° Libra in exact square to the astrogeographical coordinate of Washington
The square transition of Uranus the planet of globalization and indicator for the recapitulation of the fuller potentials of reality seems to have effected an extreme challenge to the US governments` economic and social politics towards the end of 1929. The worldwide effects of the Wall Street Crash seems to have further strengthened the role of Washington as a leading global capital simply because the world financial crisis had to be solved from Washington. Among the countries hit most hardly by the recession were Chile, Canada, Australia, Italy and Germany. The whole process of the square transit of Uranus over 6° Aries lasted from March 1928 to March 1930.
Uranus and Saturn square to Washington: the attack on Pearl Harbor
The Japanese air strike on Pearl Harbor forced the USA to enter into World War 2. Uranus the planet of globalization, the sky, flying, airplanes & air strikes was transiting 28°Taurus the sign of conquering territory in exact square to Washington´s 27°Leo coordinate.
The astrological chart for the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor reveals the intense resonance of the transits of the outer planets with the astrogeographic coordinates of the US capital Washington. Uranus at 28° and Saturn at 23° Taurus were transiting the square position to Washington at 27° Leo. The intense threat to the territorial integrity of the country lay in the fact that the “planetary attack” on the Washington position came from Taurus the sign of occupation of territory bringing the first and only ever attack by another country`s army on the territory of the USA.
The Cuban Missile Crisis and the Kennedy assassination
The Cuban Missile Crisis between 14 and 28 October 1962 was the climax of confrontation between Russia and the USA during the Cold War. The absence of transits of tension from the outer planets is surprising and even spectacular here. The only 2 highly problematic transits in regard to the astrogeographic positions of the US government were Venus in exact square between 26° and 27°Scorpio and Mercury also in exact square from 6°Libra although the incidents represented the most severe threat ever imposed on the USA by Russian nuclear missiles.
On 14th of October 1962 the day that the Russian missiles on Cuba were detected the Sun at 20° Libra was in exact transit over the 20° Libra ascendant in the birth chart of John F. Kennedy indicating something like a wake-up call for the new yearly solar cycle of the President.
Altogether the transits do not explain the full dimension of the actual danger and enormous threat caused by the Cuban Missile Crisis. Particularly Mercury in Libra would rather explain the situation as an attempt to gamble with the unexperienced and comparatively young US president. Furthermore Venus`s square from Scorpio can be interpreted as an attempt to conquer not only territory but also expect financial gains through Khrushchev`s “manouevre”.
Nikita Khruschev`s birth chart reveals the position of the Moon at 27° Leo exactly on the degree of the government area in Washington, indicating his tendency of developing a self-image as a kind of “US President”. It can therefore not be excluded that the Khruschev`s Cuban Missile “move” was done out of personal motifs and even as an attempt to demonstrate his personal power to the american people.
As Venus represents the ruler and significator of Libra Venus`s transit in a square to Washington may be seen as a threat focused to some extent on the personality of President Kennedy himself. Plausible speculations to be examined in regard to this constellation should include in how far the Russian side did not take Kennedy serious or even expected him to withdraw and not confront the russian aggression indicated through the transit of Venus.
Also for the day of the assassination of John F. Kennedy the absence of intense problematic aspects of the outer planets or even Mars for the position of the US government is spectacular. Bringing up all kinds of questions and speculations in regard to the occultism that has been created around the death of this President. The only remarkable transit is the Sun (29°44` SCO) – Lilith (24°11`SCO) conjunction with the midpoint on 26°58`Scorpio in an exact square to the position of the US federal government. Lilith is of course a clear indicator for the hidden circumstances and real motifs of the murder. A comparatively clear indication of the groups involved can be taken from the meaning of the degrees in the last degrees in Scorpio the sign of the “robber castes” which definitely point at influential lobbyists, highly ranked representatives of defense administration and super-rich conspirators such as large companies or Mafia – like organisations.
The fact that the Sun is the ruling planet of the Leo coordinate of Washington clearly points at a Washington-based conspiracy behind the attack on the US president, government, constitution and political institutions.
The North Node – indicator of the aim and/or decisive circumstance that led to the assassination was at 12°Cancer and exactly conjunct on of the two astrogeographical resonance coordinates of Moscow .
Pluto conjunct Washington: the Mc Carthy era
The transit of Pluto over the 27°Leo resonance degree of Washington had its climax between December 1953 July 1957. Examples for historical events under Pluto conjunctions to capitals were the “Reign of Terror” after the French Revolution, the 1st Hitler Coup d`Ètat of 1923 in the Weimar Republic and the climax of the success of the Islamic State in Iraq between 2012-15.
Vietnam War with an unhindered Mars joined by Venus and Moon conjunct Washington and no tension from the outer planets
The decision for the US entry into Vietnam War was based on manipulation of information through the US secrete services namely the NSA.
The astrological chart above shows that there was no tension from transits of the outer planets threatening the astrogeographical position of the US government at this time. Unthreatened Mars later on that day joined by Venus and the Moon was in transit over Washington indicating financial gains and similar motifs for this war. In regard to the astrogeographical constellations at the beginning of the Vietnam War displays a similar quality as those of the Twin Tower incident in 2001 which used as pretext for the illegal attack on Iraq in 2003.
Jupiter the planet of aims, growth, expansion and success at 23°in earth sign Taurus the sign of profits was approaching the exact square position to the 27°Leo position of the US government indicating a period marked by the unhindered expansion of profits and markets against the stability and independence of the US government.
The Neptune Square of 1968-70
The climax of the square transit of Neptune over the 27° Scorpio position between January 1968 (25°Sco) and November 1970 (0°Sag) and the square position to Washington made that era one of the most traumatic in US history. Neptune stood for the spiritual challenge through the hippie generation including the drug experience and the cultural revolution that it brought, the students protests but also the assassination of Martin Luther King and the destruction and contamination of the positive outlook on the role of the USA in World history through the US performance in the Vietnam War.
Challenges through Neptune as the planet of spirituality may turn out as processes of reconnection, self-healing, self-finding in the long run. But like in the case of any other planet development through Neptune transits has to be grounded in the experience of humans through things deeply felt, insecurity and concern endured, confusion sorted out and stimulation of reconnection with the supreme, subtle, invisible and spirituality itself through real life lessons, pains, depression and transformation lived.
From one angle of interpretation the square transit of Neptune makes the assassination of Martin Luther King appear as an act directed against the US constitution, the union and the government of the USA. But because Jupiter occupied the conjunction degree with Washington at 26°Leo at the same time the assassination appears to have been organized from Washington at the same time.
Pluto square to Washington during the “Fall of Saigon”
The opposite was the case on the day of the “Capitulation of Saigon” which fell into the period of Pluto`s square transition to the 6°Cancer position of Washington between November 1972 (3°Libra) and August 1976 (10°Libra).
On the day of the capitulation of Saigon on 30 April 1975 Pluto at 7° Libra had been moving in intensly tight aspects of tension to Washington for over 2 years. Saturn at 12°Cancer was conjunct the 12°Cancer astrogeographical resonance degree of Moscow the most important supplier of weapons for the North Vietnamese armies indicating a stabilization of the Russian capital and political situation.
