Re: 2018 Capsolar

Another way of looking at this year's Capsolar (which has served us so well during the first half of the year... I now have the ability to easily see when any of these factors were in Capsolars for any point in U.S. history. In the future, this may help to find historical patterns.

This year's Capsolar has the following patterns:
Uranus Pluto (Sun Venus).
Moon-Mercury Moon-Saturn Sun-Venus-Uranus Mars-Jupiter.

So, for example, when before has Moon aspected both Mercury and Saturn in a U.S. Capsolar? This has happened 6 prior times: 1823, 1879, 1900, 1938, 1941, 1959. Would any student of U.S. history care to look at those years and see what they have in common? To narrow it further, were there any years where (like this year) it was not foreground? Yes, Moon and Saturn were not foreground in any of those six prior times, and Mercury was only foreground (closely!) in 1941.

Another important pattern in this yera's Capsolar is the foreground Sun-Venus-Uranus triple aspect. Please note that none of these three aspects has existed even once in a year when Moon aspected both Mercury and Saturn, so we have to compile a separte list. Sun, Venus, and Uranus all were foreground and in mutual three-way aspect only one prior time, 1994. Would someone like to look at U.S. events in 1994 and see how they might compare/contrast to what is going on now in terms of this aspect?

Sun has conjoined Venus in the Capsolar foreground only five times in U.S. history: 1779, 1783, 1896, 1978, 1994, 2018. We've had 8 foreground Sun-Uranus aspects: 1786, 1816, 1826-27, 1871, 1910, 1994, 2018. Venus and Uranus have been in foreground aspect in U.S. Capsolars 10 times: 1816, 1834, 1838, 1876, 1918, 1923, 1968, 1994, 2004, 2018.

Hopefully I can think of a few new ways to use this new tool.

I've finished, and soon will be posting, a spreadsheet that has all angularities, Moon aspects, and foreground non-lunar aspectsfor USA Capsolars 1775-2034. Then everyone can play more easily :)

One of the things that stood out dramatically: For the most part, until recent years, U.S. Capsolars were boring. This was especially true in the earliest decades. In the best and worst senses, we do truly "live in interesting times" as measured by Capsolar complexity. I'd like them to get a little less interesting and, by 2024, they do that.

I reached the same conclusions with my study of US Capsolars. IMO, I think the Uranus-Pluto cnj in the 60's first was the primary thrust the US into 'interesting times.' And the multiple Uranus-Pluto squares in the decade of 2010 is definitely changing things again in powerful intense ways. When we see these Uranus-Pluto combo's involved with Capsolar angles, we of course see a sharper focus for Uranus- Pluto manifestations.

With my newly created tool, I am (ahem) now able to say that Uranus-Pluto aspects occurred in the foreground of USA Capsolars 17 times. They are the most common foreground aspect in U.S. history (and coming back in 2020). The 17 times through the present are: 1814, 1816, 1820, 1827, 1876, 1877, 1927, 1935, 1966, 1968, 1977, 1998, 2002, 2006, 2012, 2014, and 2016.

However, these were not the only years Uranus and Pluto were foreground together - just the years they were in aspect. The years Uranus and Pluto were both closely foreground add 1787, 1791, 1974, 2004, 2007, and 2018 to the list. If we don't limit it to closely angular, there are 31 years altogether, but I think the 23 I've already mentioned are the stand-outs.

I started seeing the "interesting times" charts around World War II and the aftermath. Check out 1956 for one of the most fascinating. And for that matter can someone tell me what of national importance happened in 1994 to justify the extreme chart of that year? (Yes, we had the Northridge earthquake a few days later, but I don't think that justifies how the year is shown for the nation as a whole.) I suspect the national medical care battles were raging, but I haven't been able to get clear tracking on that.

There were a few other. But once we rounded the corner of the 21st Century, it's been almost non-stop Big Deal Capsolars.

Exactly! Astrologers have always contributed long time cyclic manifestations to the outer planets (trend-setters), and without a doubt Uranus-Pluto is the major combo which can transform things with powerful impulses involving long term trends.

Israel (Tel Aviv): Venus Jupiter (Sun Mars Pluto). Sun-Venus Mars-Jupiter (Sun-Uranus Venus-Uranus). [Peace in the Middle East?]
Syria (Damascus): Venus Jupiter (05') (Sun Mars Pluto). Sun-Venus Venus-Jupiter Mars-Jupiter (Sun-Uranus Venus-Uranus). [Peace in Syria?!?]
I thought the idea of peace in Syria (or in Israel, for that matter) seemed absurd when I wrote this - notice the incredulity in my note.

Nonetheless, this morning we learn that the Syrian military has retaken Dara'a, where the civil war began in 2011, and that this probably means that the rebellion is smashed and the civil war is effectively over.

While I'm not all that comfortable personally with a lot that this means, one thing it would indeed mean is... peace in Syria under the current Capsolar and immediately before the new Cansolar comes in. (The current Cansolar has Jupiter 0°45' past Ascendant, Pluto 0°40' before IC, Jupiter-Pluto mundane square 1°25'.)

The Cansolar, which starts July 17 in Damascus, looks like a successful treaty. Mercury is 0°55' past Ascendant, Jupiter 3°17' past IC, and theyre in mundane square (2°22').
