USA Chart Comparison: The Tenth House

The tenth house in any chart is the most public part of the chart.  Whatever is in the tenth house is highly visible.  In the chart of a nation, the tenth house contains the government, the reputation of the country, the chief executive, and big business and industry, among other things.  In looking at the charts, I will start with the Sibly chart, then go to the constitution chart.

The Sibly Chart

The Sibly chart has Libra on the tenth house cusp.  With Libra on the tenth house cusp, we would be seen as fair, just, balanced, beautiful, and social, on the positive side.  On the negative side, we might be seen as wishy-washy, lazy, or superficial.  Our government would be intellectual.  Our presidents would use charm and conciliation to govern.

The house contains the points Saturn and Juno, both in Libra.  Libra covers the entire house.  The ruler of Libra, Vulcan (The traditional ruler of Libra is Venus.  I, and only I as far as I know, use the point I call Vulcan as the ruler of Libra.  The point is the mean over the shortest arc of the longitudes of the four major asteroids.  I have made an ephemeris for Vulcan from 1900 to 2050 available at http://vanwardstat.com/Vulcan%201900%20to%202050%20wdec.pdf or http://vanwardstat.com/Vulcan%201900%20to%202050%20wdec.rtf.). In the Sibly chart, Vulcan was in the second house in Aquarius.

Saturn in the Tenth 

Saturn in the tenth house in Libra is strong, since Saturn is the exalted ruler of Libra and the accidental ruler of the tenth house.  The placement might indicate that we govern in a balanced way through our government.  Or, that our president fears he or she lacks socially.  Or, that we take seriously our reputation as a fair country.

Saturn was making one aspect of the close aspects that I am using, a waning square from the Sun in the seventh house in Cancer.  The square is an active aspect, putting energy behind Saturn.  Since the square was a waning square, we would be achieving something by leading in the area of war and peace out of our president’s governing.

Juno in the Tenth
Juno in the tenth house in Libra might indicate any tendency that we would have toward being maritally  jealous would be very visible.  We might have a drive to ‘marry’ for peaceful purposes at the governmental level.

Juno made four aspects of the close aspects that I am using.  Mars was in a waning trine to Juno from the seventh house in Gemini.  Juno was in a trine to Vulcan in the second house in Aquarius.  Juno was in an opposition to Chiron in the fourth house in Aries.  Juno was inconjunct Vesta in the fifth house in Taurus.  These are not particularly active aspects, indicating ease, reflection, and anxiety.

Mars in a waning trine to Juno might indicate that getting verbally angry in our marriages and lazily jealous of our reputation at the same time would be an easy achievement in our country.  Juno in a trine to Vulcan might indicate an easy flow of energy between being lazily jealous of our reputation and harmonizing radically our money.  Juno opposite Chiron might indicate a conflict between being lazily jealous of our reputation and energetically working hard in our homeland.  Juno inconjunct Vesta might indicate that combining being lazily jealous of our reputation with devoting ourselves practically to our games would bring about a societal anxiety.

Vulcan Ruling the Tenth
Vulcan, ruler of the 10th house, in the second house in Aquarius might indicate that our government and reputation would have come out of balancing radical values.  Or that we would develop a reputation out of loving our scintillating senses.  Or that our president would be motivated to charm bankers electronically.

The Vulcan aspects were covered in the post on the second house.  The aspects are a waning sextile to Chiron in the fourth house in Aries, a square to Vesta in the fifth house in Taurus, Venus in a waxing sesquiquadrate from the seventh house and Cancer, an inconjunct to the mean Lilith in the ninth house in Virgo, and a trine to Juno in the tenth house in Libra.  So there are a lot of influences and a mix of influences affecting Vulcan, and thus the tenth house.  The influences are a mix of easy and energetic influences, including one edgy yod – covered in the last post, under the mean Lilith.

The Constitution Chart

In the constitution chart, Virgo is on the tenth house cusp.  Virgo on the tenth house cusp might indicate a reputation as a clean, discriminating, reasonable, practical country.  Our president would be service oriented.  We might expect him or her to be analytical.  Our government would be orderly and sensible.

Chiron Ruling the Tenth
There are none of the points that I am using are in the house.  The ruler of Virgo, and as such the ruler of the tenth house, is Chiron (I use Chiron as the ruler of Virgo – as do some others, rather than the traditional Mercury.), which was in the seventh house in Gemini in the constitution chart.  With the ruler of the tenth house in the seventh house in Gemini, our government, and how it works, would come out of an intellectual approach to fairness, war, peace, marriage and divorce, enemies, justice, and allies, among other things.  Our government would be the result of verbal interchanges and reflections.

Chiron made five aspects – of the close aspects that I am using; a square to the Sun, Saturn, Nadir conjunction in Pisces, a semisquare to Uranus in the eighth house in Leo, and a sesquiquadrate to Vesta in the eleventh house in Scorpio.  These aspects were covered in the post on the seventh house.  These are all active aspects, indicating that there is a lot of active energy behind the tenth house even if the house does not contain any of the points that I am using.

USA Chart Comparison: The Ninth House

In this post, I look at the ninth houses in the constitution and Sibly charts for the USA.  In the chart for a nation, the ninth house would contain pretty much what the ninth house contains in a natal chart; foreigners and foreign countries, religious institutions and religion, institutions of higher learning and higher education, the country’s belief system, lawyers and the legal system, the publishing industry – among other things.  Since our country is based on our joint belief system, the ninth house should be strong in the chart of the USA.  First I will look at the constitution chart.

USA Chart Comparison: The Eighth House

In this blog post, I will look at the eighth houses of the constitution and Sibly charts for the USA.  I will first cover the constitution chart.

The eight house in the chart of a nation holds things like power resources; taxes; policies toward sex, death, and the occult; financial relations with other countries; the finances of allies and open enemies; payouts by the government; and insurance companies, among other things.  It basically refers to joint resources, as in a natal or business chart.

The Constitution Chart

In the constitution chart, the eighth house has the first degree of Cancer on the cusp.  With Cancer on the cusp, we would approach eighth house matters, such as insurance companies or policy toward the occult, with a protective, caring attitude.  With the first degree on the cusp, we would be at the beginning of dealing with eighth house matters carefully.  As a country, we would initiate new policies at an emotional level with regard to things like sex, death, and taxes; or develop power in a liquid way.

The eighth house contains Jupiter in Cancer and Uranus in Leo.  Since Cancer is ruled by the Moon, the Moon is the ruler of the eighth house.  The Moon was in the seventh house in Gemini in the constitution chart.

Jupiter in the Eighth House

Jupiter in the eighth house in Cancer might indicate, for a nation, that we would expand in the area of power and control – in a fluid way and impulsively.  Also, expanding would be in the west-south-west direction (from New York City).

The Moon was – to the minute – in a waning semisquare to Jupiter.  Jupiter made no other of the very close aspects that I use.  The waning semisquare might indicate that irritation is generated when we combine emoting and trusting, that a cycle is closing between caring and expanding.

Uranus in the Eighth House

Uranus in the eighth house in Leo in the chart of a nation might indicate that we would scintillate in the area of solar power.  We might proudly radicalise our policies toward sex, death, and taxes.  Gangsters being under the rulership of the eighth house, we might have a problem with gangsters electrifying egotistical crime.

Chiron in the seventh house in Gemini was in a waning semisquare to Uranus.  Juno in Libra and Vesta in Scorpio, both in the eleventh house, were in waxing squares to Uranus.  The Scorpio Ascendant was in a waxing trine to Uranus.  The North Node in the first house in Sagittarius was in a waning (the progress of the nodes through the chart is backward) trine and the South Node in the seventh house in Gemini was in a waxing sextile to Uranus.  With a mix of active and easy aspects, our sparkling, radicalising, and electrifying would be evoked by a mixture of struggle and ease.

Chiron in a waning semisquare to Uranus might indicate that there is energy there for laboring hard in closing in on radicalising our joint finances.  Juno and Vesta, together in different signs, in a waxing square to Uranus might indicate that we are building foundations for wifing and sistering coming out of radicalising our attitudes toward sex and support.

The Scorpio ascendant in a waxing trine to Uranus might indicate our physical appearance is created easily out of electrifying (or radicalising) our country’s power.  The North Node in Sagittarius in a waning trine to Uranus and the South Node in Gemini in a waxing sextile to Uranus might indicate there is an easy and expansive flow of energy between good timing and our radicalising our joint resources, while, with regard to poor timing and looking backward, we are moving out into opportunities with regard to radicalising our joint resources.

The Moon Ruling the Eighth House

The Moon in the seventh house in Gemini, ruling the eighth house, might indicate that we deal with power and control when we make peace and war with our public emoting.  The Moon makes one aspect of the close aspects that I am using, an exact semisquare to Jupiter in the eighth house, which was covered above.  We might find ourselves a bit excessive in our emoting, but there is not a lot of activity behind our eighth house matters.

The Sibly Chart

In the Sibly chart, the eighth house has Cancer on the cusp.  As with the constitution chart, Cancer on the cusp would indicate an emotional, initiating energy behind our eighth house matters.  The house contains Mercury and the Part of Fortune in Cancer and the North Node in Leo.  The ruler of the house, the Moon, was in the third house in Aquarius.

Mercury in the Eighth House

Mercury in the eighth house in Cancer might indicate that when we communicate as a nation we would focus protectively on our joint resources.  Or that we would drive because of our environmental power.

Mercury was in a waxing semisquare to Uranus in the sixth house in Gemini. Mercury was in a waning sextile to Neptune in the ninth house in Virgo.  Mercury was in a waxing sesquiquadrate to Ceres in the third house in Pisces.  Mercury and the Part of Fortune were conjunct, with the Part of Fortune ahead of Mercury.

Mercury in the waxing semisquare to Uranus might indicate our reaching out to protectively communicate our joint financial resources based on radicalising the daily labours of the country.  Mercury in the waning sextile to Neptune might indicate achieving something through opportunities to protectively communicating our joint finances based on our idealizing our freedom and beliefs in an analytical way.

Mercury in the waxing sesquiquadrate to Ceres might indicate energy available to cross the t’s and dot the i’s when protectively communicating our joint finances based on unconditional cycling of ideas.  Mercury conjunct the Part of Fortune might indicate that as a nation, we are happiest when we protectively communicating our joint resources.

The Part of Fortune in the Eighth House

The Part of Fortune in the eighth house in Cancer might indicate the our happiness and fortune would come out of being protective and environmentally conscious about our joint resources; our policies toward sex, the occult, and the criminal underworld; and in our investigations and joint research; among other things.  The Part of Fortune was conjunct (and departing from) Mercury, as noted above, approaching the opposition to Pluto in the second house in Capricorn, and in a waxing inconjunct to Pallas in the third house in Aquarius – of the very small aspects that I am using.

The Part of Fortune approaching the opposition to Pluto might indicate that we would be bringing into awareness our fortune in our joint patriotic wealth in relation to our being compulsive about our political values and governmental money.  The Part of Fortune in the waxing inconjunct to Pallas might indicate some societal anxiety between putting all our ducks in a row patriotically with regard to fortune and women professing with egalitarian ideas.

The North Node in the Eighth House

The North Node in the eighth house in Leo might indicate that we are moving toward solar power, proud joint financial institutions, creative taxes, among other eighth house things.  We would have good timing with regard to eighth house matters.

The North Node was in a waning semisquare to Neptune in the ninth house in Virgo and in a waxing semisquare to Mars in the seventh house in Gemini.  This puts the North Node at the midpoint of Mars and Neptune.  We would grow from sneak attacks and the attacks would be irritating and would make us popular and get us all on the same page.

Since the South Node is opposite the North Node, the nodes, Mars, and Neptune form an active, kite-like formation.  In moving from careful popularity to fearful unpopularity, and vice versa, there would be tension, which might come from critically idealizing our believes and from battling verbally with our enemies and allies, for one interpretation.

The Moon Ruling the Eighth House

The ruler of the eighth house, the Moon, in the third house in Aquarius might indicate that protecting our radical ideas would be the motivation behind our careful approach to joint resources, as well as other eighth house matters.  The Moon only made one aspect, of the very close aspects that I use – a conjunction to Pallas in the third house in Aquarius.  The conjunction is an active aspect, putting some energy behind the eighth house.

The Moon departing from the conjunction to Pallas might indicate, among other things, that the public emoting is tied up with women professing.  Both the emoting and professing are done radically or electronically in the area of communications, cars, and  primary schools, among other things.

USA Chart Comparison: The Sixth House

USA Chart Comparison: The Fifth House

In this blog post, I look at the fifth houses of the constitution and Sibly charts of the USA. The fifth house of a nation’s chart represents, among other things, children and children’s issues, leadership, primary teaching, the entertainment industry of the country, the gambling industry too, and speculation in the stock market. I will start with the constitution chart.

The Constitution Chart

In the constitution chart, the fifth house has Aries on the cusp. With Aries on the fifth, our entertainment, stock, and gambling industries would be competitive and assertive. Our approach to primary teaching would be pioneering. We would expect our children to strive.

Mars as Ruler of the Fifth House

None of the points that I am using are found in the fifth house. Since there are no points in the house, Mars, the ruler of Aries, is the only direct influence on the fifth house. With Mars in the third house in Aquarius, our motivation for having fun might be to act in an experimental way on our vehicles; the energy behind our entertainment industries could be described as that of acting electrically on stories; our approach toward our children might come out of energizing children’s teachers radically.

Mars was trine Juno in the eleventh house in Libra and square the Scorpio ascendant, just a couple of aspects. The two aspects indicate the energy behind our childhood issues, our entertainment industry, and our stock market would be a combination of ease and struggle. Since the fifth house contains no points, there would be no energy focused out of our “fun” stuff. With just two aspects to the ruler and not points in the house, fifth house affairs should be uncomplicated.

Mars Square Ascendant and Trine Juno

The square to the Ascendant was covered under the first house, but might indicate that we would struggle in integrating our critically watery appearance with energizing our eclectic vehicles, which would affect our speculations and entertainment. The trine to Juno in the eleventh house would indicate an easy flow of energy between taking action locally and drawing toward ourselves our aspirations. The easy flow would affect our children, stock markets, and entertainment industries.

The Sibly Chart

In the Sibly chart, 29 degrees of Aries is on the fifth house cusp. Since the Sibly chart is strictly a speculative chart – that is, not based on precise timing – I will delineate each of the rulers of Aries and Taurus as the house ruler. Mars rules Aries and Venus rules Taurus. In the Sibly chart, Mars was in Gemini and Venus was in Cancer. Both were in the seventh house. The Sibly chart has just the asteroid Vesta in the fifth house – of the points that I use.

Vesta in the Fifth House

Vesta in a national chart would show what the country devotes itself to, where we center ourselves, and how we burn the hearth fires, among other things. With Vesta in the fifth house in Taurus, we would devote ourselves in a practical and monetary way to our children, speculation, and having fun. Our hearth fires would burn through our entertaining ourselves. We would be centered in our leadership.

Vesta was inconjunct Juno in the tenth house is Libra and trine the mean Lilith in the ninth house in Virgo. The inconjunct and trine would indicate anxious, mixed with easy, energies when we devote ourselves – but none of the active, driving energies of the square, semisquare, or sequiquadrate.

Vesta Inconjunct Juno and Trine Lilith

The inconjunct to Juno might indicate anxiety between culturally drawing alliances towards us and devoting ourselves practically to our leadership role. The trine to Lilith might indicate an easy flow of energy between our analytically feministing about our beliefs and our stably devoting ourselves to our children.

Mars as Ruler of the Fifth House

If Aries is on the fifth house cusp, the house would be ruled by Mars. Mars was in the 7th house in Gemini. The Mars aspects were covered in the post on the fourth house and were a mix of easy and hard aspects, indicating that there would be some struggle and some ease in our acting on our sense of justice, which would drive our approach to our children, our entertainment industry, and our stock markets.

Venus as Ruler of the Fifth House

If Taurus is on the fifth house cusp, the house would be ruled by Venus, which was in the seventh house in Cancer in the Sibly chart. Venus made no aspects to the points that I use, for the aspects and orbs that I am using. Since Venus makes no close aspects, the planet acts on its own without strong influence from the other points. In the seventh in Cancer, Venus would be about sensing our allies and enemies instinctively; about emotionally feeling our policies with regard to marriage and divorce. The emotional energy would affect our children, gambling, leadership, and stock markets.

USA Chart Comparison: The Fourth House

The Sibly chart has Aries on the fourth cusp.  With Aries on the cusp, we would be pioneering with regard to our land, assertive toward our environment, bold as a people, and mechanical in mines, among other things.  Aries is ruled by Mars, so Mars is the ruler of the fourth house.  Mars was in the seventh house in Gemini.  With Mars in the seventh house in Gemini, the roots of our country would come out of competing with or battling, intellectually or civilly, our allies and enemies.

Chiron in the Fourth
