Primary angles and th U.S. Horoscope

Post by Jim Eshelman » Sat Aug 04, 2018 3:35 pm

Ken Bowser wrote a book on the United States horoscope, applying the one technique of primary angles ("progressed angles") for major events, and says he has confirmed, within a minute or two, the "shortly past noon" Hazelrigg-George chart I prefer.

I haven't read the book. I've seen it discussed and have read Ken's occasional remarks about it. It occurred to me to test the chart (I use the last Llewellyn George adjustment, 12:14:42 PM LMT) against the relevant events in Sidereal Mundane Astrology and see what I got.

This is especially because I doubt Ken used the same rate that I've been encouraging over the last few years. I'm guessing he used the Naibod in RA that I used for decades, which was the Fagan-Firebrace-Bradley standard. A few years ago, examples completely flipped my view to the theory of progressing the MC by solar arc in longitude (same as Solar Arc directed MC) and then deriving Ascendant from that.

It's worth a few minutes to check the available data and see what pops up.

Warlike attacks

Post by Jim Eshelman » Sat Aug 04, 2018 3:45 pm

9/11
p Asc sq. r Neptune +0°34'
L p MC (NYC) conj. p Mercury -0°53'

Bay of Pigs Invasion
p MC conj. p Mercury -0°15'
p MC op. t Mars 0°01'
-- t Mars op. p Mercury 0°24'
p Asc op. p Saturn 0°00'
p Asc sq. t Jupiter 0°01'
-- t Jupiter sq. p Saturn 0°01'

NB: Philadelphia angles are better than relocating the country to Washington, since that loses all of the above and puts progressed Sun partile to MC - not how the event came down.

Benghazi attack
p Asc conj. r Venus 0°06'
p Asc op. t Pluto 0°55'
-- t Pluto op. r Venus 0°09'

CONCLUSION: None of them are bad and, in general, they're quite good.

-- t Saturn-Neptune conj. 0°11'

2001 Afghanistan War

p MC conj. p Mercury +0°47'
L p MC (Houston) conj. t Sun +0°47', t Moon -0°49', op. t Jupiter -0°08'

COMMENT: These aren't so good overall. Perhaps they amount to smaller events.

Uprisings of the People

Post by Jim Eshelman » Sat Aug 04, 2018 5:17 pm

[I'll try to isolate those that should be truly national events, not just big events that got national attention.]

Selma ("Bloody Sunday")
(Nothing)

Wounded Knee Uprising
L p Asc [Wounded Knee] s. t Mars +0°47'

Waco Siege
L p MC (Waco) conj. p Pluto +0°12'

SCOTUS Affirms Gay Marriage Rights
p Asc conj. r Jupiter -0°49'
L p MC (Washington) conj. p Sun +0°27'
L p Asc conj. r Venus -0°12'

COMMENT: These don't always hit - but when they do hit, they hit really well! Notice the strength of the local progressed angles instead of the natal ones, as if (for example) these are not nation-sifting in some ways.
