How the US Chart Interacts with the Transiting Planets
The US chart for July 4, 1776, at 5:10 pm, in Philadelphia, PA has the Sun, Mercury, Venus and Jupiter in Cancer. Those planets are square natal Saturn and are opposed by transiting Pluto and square transiting Uranus. This sets up an extremely powerful dynamic. Some of the manifestations of this energy are listed below.
What Are Possible Negative Manifestations?
Fear may cause physical and/or legal aggression
Overwhelmed people or institutions
Impulsive/reckless behavior or spending
Starting or escalating a war(s) and expansion of military technology
Addictive or obsessive behavior due to wanting to escape
Nuclear (Pluto) accidents (Mars and Uranus)
Gridlock of all kinds (due to the power (Pluto) dynamic)
Violent weather events: tornado, volcanic eruptions (Pluto/Uranus), fires (Mars), accidents and/or attacks involving oils wells, subways (Mars/Pluto/Neptune)
What are Possible Positive Manifestations?
Unprecedented breakthroughs in science, technology
Thoughtfully and proactively challenging ourselves and others to bring about positive change
Reformation (Pluto) of the justice system (Jupiter)
Willingness to go “out on a limb” for what you believe is right (Jupiter transits)
Having the courage to let go of what is no longer working in order to bring in better conditions (Jupiter transits)
Being willing to actively work with others to bring about change (Mars in Libra)
Breakthroughs in ushering in a new sense of cooperation by active dialogue (Mars in Libra)
Staying balanced through the changes and presenting a calm face to others (Libra)
Mars in Libra could bring exciting love relationships. Fighting and making up was never so much fun!
Am I Affected by These Transits?
If you have planets or your ascendant in Aries, Cancer, Libra or Capricorn you will be affected by these transits. Those who have planets near 8 to 17 degrees of the above signs will feel the transits the most. Those with planets or chart angles at 16-24 Scorpio, Taurus, Aquarius or Leo will feel the transit of Saturn. The interaction of the transiting planets with your chart may be different depending on the planets involved. In all cases, we can expect the unexpected.
Look at where the planets are that rule the above signs. That is:
Aries Look at where Mars is in your chart.
Cancer Look at where the Moon is in your chart.
Libra Look at where Venus is in your chart
Capricorn Look at where Saturn is in your chart
Scorpio Look at where Mars and Pluto are in our chart
Taurus Look at where Venus is in your chart
Aquarius Look at where Uranus is in your chart
Leo Look at where the Sun is in your chart
Also look at the house where the transiting planet falls. The houses that the transiting planets go through will also be affected.
The general meaning of the houses is:
|How others see you and the initial impression you make on others. Your mask to the world. Major first house transits can change your appearance. The first house can show health issues.|
|Money! Your stuff – what you hold dear, whether it is possessions, ideas or ideologies. What are our priorities? What do you identify with?|
|What is familiar to you: your neighborhood, the things you do on autopilot, your early childhood education, how you learn new things, and your siblings. It is the house of communication.|
|4th Family:||Your emotional storehouse and foundation: home, family, country. We retreat to the 4th house when things become overwhelming. It is the most private part of your chart. What feels safe? It will point to your most nurturing parent (at one time this was the mother only).|
|5th Love:||It is the creative, playful, you that wants to be noticed. Your love affairs and the things you enjoy show up here. Your luck or lack thereof will show up here.|
|It rules your children, lovers and pets that you treat like children.
What do you do with your time? That is work, charity work, socializing, etc. The need to have a “function’ in life. Your health will show up in the sixth house.
|Also called the Descendant. The part of you that relates to one other person: your spouse, significant other and best friend. Committed relationships of any kind whether business or personal and open enemies (lawsuits).|
|The deep, heavy, intense parts of our life, including crisis of all kinds: death, taxes, insurance, inheritances and sexuality. Your committed partner. How you rejuvenate yourself after hard times. Outcome of lawsuits.|
|Travel, higher education, religion, spirituality, metaphysics, philosophy, publishing and anything that opens your mind.|
|The part of you that reacts to authority figures. You being in charge. Your public self and your career.|
|Friends, groups and peers. The part of you that joins with others for fun or to achieve a common goal. Hopes and wishes.|
|The secret place in your chart where only you can go. It rules churches, convents, prisons, and hospitals. The part of you that needs solitude.|
Therefore, when any of the planets in this T-Square, Grand-Square or eclipse falls in any of the houses above, it will affect the matters relating to that house.
The Grand Cross will be in effect until May 1, overlapping the Solar Eclipse at 8º Taurus on April 29. The Solar Eclipse will sextile Neptune, which urges us to tune into our mystical, inner selves for guidance to bring in the much-needed, new energy.
