The Unites States President signed into effect 23 executive orders on gun control on the 16th of January 2013. I am in favor of some gun control, none the less, I seek not to argue the point here, rather to marvel at the astrological time that the executive order took place. The chart for the event is strong evidence that the event was astrologically chosen for effect. When you time an event, such as signing a document, starting a journey, or getting married, to the astrological significators in the sky, it is called an election.
This works, because everything is interdependent. Astrology is the study of interdependence on a grand and microcosmic level. The myths and archtypes that lend themselves to the bodies of astrology are as old as humankind, and have been in use since the dawn of history. They are so embedded in the psyche of man, that they fit into every religion. Thus they permeate all societies. Elections work, because of the deep connection between the archetypes that make up our conscious mind, subconscious mind, and unconscious minds. Elections are taping into that power, whether people are aware of it or not.
The sign which is best at controlling in the Zodiac is Capricorn. Wherever you find Capricorn you find control. Here we find Capricorn on the midheaven. This is a place of power. The Sun is in Capricorn, conjunct the place of the Midheaven, giving maximum control to the ruler. Who is the ruler, the ruler is always the Sun. Thus with this signing, the president gains maximum control through his rule. These executive orders will not be undone. Rather they will be built upon. The other meaning of Capricorn, which is a fixed earth sign is a foundation. If you want anything to last, you do it when Capricorn is involved.
Capricorn is ruled by Saturn, Saturn is conjunct the angle of horizons. Here it gains tremendous power to support the rule of the Sun. The power comes from secret agreements, as Capricorn is in Scorpio, the sign of Secrets. Despite the public outcry of opposition parties, there has already been agreement on how gun control will be introduced to America. This is what I see indicated by this placement of Saturn.
The Moon, which is the translator of the energy of the stars to earth, by its motion, in western astrology, is at 0* Aries. This is the place of new beginnings. Anything started at 0 degrees Aries indicates the start of a cycle or endeavor. These executive orders are for the new endeavor of controlling the guns in the possession of the American Public. The Moon represents the public, as well it is in the 12th house, which is the house of controlling, and dis-empowering, and mental illness. We are seeing the power of the American Public limited by this motion. (Again, I am for limited gun control, so make of that statement what you will. I believe that people should have back ground checks before being able to purchase a gun.) The moon also rules the fourth, which in a national chart is the people. I believe that the indication is that the ability of Mentally unstable people to own guns will be taken away as the end result of these executive actions.
Mars, which rules the Moon, is in Aquarius, the sign of the public good on the Midheaven. This indicates that the government believes it is doing this action to further the good of the people.
This chart is a powerful election for ensuring that Gun Control becomes law. With this chart it is fait accompli.
