Timing the Declaration of Independence UNITED STATES

There is a story behind the United States' declaration of independence.  While Americans celebrate independence on the 4th of July, the crucial vote for independence was cast two days earlier.  On July 2, 1776, the United Colonies of America officially became the United States of America.

John Adams thought July 2 would be celebrated by future generations of Americans when he wrote to his wife Abigail Adams:

"The second day of July, 1776, will be the most memorable epoch in the history of America. I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival. It ought to be commemorated as the day of deliverance, by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires, and illuminations, from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forever more."


BEHIND THE SCENES

Benjamin Franklin was a member of the committee that drafted the Declaration of Independence.  He was a man of importance in many areas and a master astrologer.  He and Thomas Jefferson, another all-around philosophical and scientific genius, conspired to have the Declaration of Independence adopted on July 4, rather than on July 2, the date urged by the hurried John Adams.

THE RIGHT TIME
On July 2, the Moon was in its weakest sign, Capricorn, where it would oppose the Sun, Mercury, Venus and Jupiter in Cancer—absolutely detrimental timing.

On July 4, the full Moon was safely resting in Aquarius, well out of opposition to the Sun—and the rest is history.



THE REAL ASTROLOGY CHART OF THE UNITED STATES
For many years, astrologers have heatedly debated on the time the Declaration of Independence was signed.  According to the Philadelphia Historical Society, "the Declaration was graced with its first signature at approximately five o’clock in the afternoon after which the members all went off to dine."

The two most common charts used by astrologers are set at 4:50 p.m. with an 8° Sagittarius Ascendant, and at 5:10 p.m. which places the Ascendant at 12° Sagittarius.

I have found the 5:10 p.m. chart to be accurate and aligned with major events, most especially the attack that took place on September 11, 2001.  On that fateful day, Pluto was at 12° Sagittarius.
