The ancient art/science of astrology is a tool with which people of Earth can improve the conditions of their lives. One branch - Mundane Astrology - is the science of the influence of the heavenly bodies as they affect the world - whether it be nations, cities, communities or any organization constituting an entity that functions under a common governing authority.
The chart is calculated for the United States of America.
The chart cast for the Vernal Equinox always bears chief rule for the ensuing year; succeeding ingresses are subsidiary to the first-named.From the chart of the Vernal Equinox posted on March 8, 2011, we found the focal point to be public health, the nation's food supply and armed forces, among other matters:
"SUN CONJOINED URANUS IN THE 6TH HOUSE puts emphasis on the nation's food supply, service workers, police and firefighters, civil service and public servants, armed forces, public health, and the working class in general.
The 6th house is one of crisis, which is to say the population will be required by events to devote more time, attention and energy to these matters than is usual."
AUTUMN EQUINOX 2011
Virgo Rises, ruler Mercury holding sway in the 1st house.Virgo as a whole corresponds to the house of work, employment, and military conditions.Opposed by retrograde Uranus, Mercury here lends a tendency to jump to conclusions without examining all the facts.This situation is complicated by Mercury's inconjunct to 6th house Neptune, which equates to unnecessarily overextending in the areas above mentioned.In short, give little credence to unemployment statistics and beware military activity.
Neptune in the 6th house forms the Apex to a configuration known as a Yod, with inconjuncts to 11th house Mars and to 1st house Mercury/Sun.There is underground activity and much energy being expended by the military, who are working quietly behind the scenes, who may or may not be able to effect a successful change of course with reference to those in legislative branches and the nation's people.Of the 29th degree of Aquarius, astrologer Adriano Carelli notes the symbolism to be "A knight with a drawn sword," it's meaning: "An heroic degree, but its chivalrous character may degenerate into quarrelsomeness, or induce a destiny too bristling with frightful ordeals to be borne by human beings."
The Sun in Libra occupies the 1st house, close to the 2nd house cusp, opposing a retrograde Uranus in 8th house Aries and square Pluto in Capricorn in the 4th house, forming a Cardinal T-Square with Pluto at the Apex.The empty leg of the T-Square falls into the 10th house of the chart, indicating that the action - including but not limited to the nation's selected leader - will play out on the USA national image and the government in particular.
O! let me not be mad, not mad, sweet heaven;
Keep me in temper; I would not be mad!King Lear, 1. 5
Some of the energy will be deflected through the Mars/Moon conjunction in Leo, and although it appears from perusing the chart that this combo is situated in the 11th house, the planets actually fall into the 12th house...secret plans will be afoot that may work against the playboy in office, who failed to bring the change for which his followers hoped.
A desperate disease requires a dangerous remedy.
A 1st house Sun in zero degrees (always the case at the equinox) and ruling the 12th house signifies a newcomer who arrives cloaked in the garment of clandestine affairs, a self-reliant male of military persuasion who assumes charge, without direction from others, involved in a hazardous undertaking denoting injury and/or death as Aries, natural ruler of the 1st house, is on the 8th house cusp.This may describe the recently appointed director of the CIA, a former general in the U.S. Army, who has well distinguished himself during his military career. The appointment of a military general as director of the Central Intelligence Agency blurs the lines between soldiers and spies in secret American missions abroad.To what end?For what purpose?
Within a little more than 24 hours after the equinox commences the Sun will move into the 2nd house: the nation's wealth and national treasury.Will the new Militarized CIA (hereinafter to be known as MCIA) investigate the disappearance of 2.3 trillion dollars, said by former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld on the day prior to 9/11 to have been lost by the Pentagon?Will the new MCIA investigate the origins of that amount of money which was more than was budgeted?Because if the entire U.S. defense budgets from 1996 to 2001 were added up, it only amounts to approximately 1.6 trillion dollars.So if there are roughly 700 billion dollars over the amount budgeted, from whence did it come?Who has that kind of money to purchase a favor from the Pentagon?Who in the Pentagon has betrayed the American public?Will the new MCIA also investigate the situation, only two years later, when once again the Pentagon couldn't account for more than a trillion dollars in monies spent?A Government Accounting Office report, circa 2003, found the Dept. of Defense inventory systems so lax that the U.S. Army lost track of 56 airplanes, 32 tanks, and 36 Javelin missile command launch-units.
What colossal amount of unaccounted money are we up to now, about $4 trillion?Cui bono?
You blocks, you stones, you worse than senseless things!

WEATHER.Sagittarius on 4th house cusp, ruler Jupiter retrograde in Taurus...Pluto in Capricorn in 4th house square Sun/Venus in Libra and retrograde Uranus in Aries.Pluto trine ASC; Pluto trine Jupiter.
Pluto in Capricorn takes precedence in the weather in this chart as he is situated in the 4th house.CAPRICORN is the sign of storms, of extreme cold, and of destructive floods and droughts.Its influence is commonly toward low temperatures and in winter to temperatures so low as to be destructive of life.It is the sign which, more than any other, brings blizzards.It is a wet sign, tending toward floods, destructive snowstorms and hailstorms.Unseasonable weather of all kinds come under its rule.
In his influence on temperature PLUTO is cool but not the extreme cold brought by Saturn and Uranus.He is decidedly a violent planet, and his prominence tends to bring extreme conditions.In his influence on air he tends to produce wind...combined with the square to Uranus, of a violent and destructive nature with the ability to produce storms of death and destruction.With the square of Pluto to Uranus there is danger of electrical disturbances.
Jupiter in Taurus.TAURUS, in its influence upon temperature, has a moderating influence.In its influence upon air, Taurus tends to moderate weather and a still atmosphere.In its influence upon moisture, Taurus tends towards wet weather.
JUPITER'S influence in relation to temperature is warm; where wind is concerned he conduces to pleasant breezes; where moisture is concerned, he tends to dryness and clear weather.
Thus, the country will experience unseasonable weather according to its usual patterns.
