The inner wheel shows a birth chart for the U.S. It assumes that the United States has a Gemini Ascendant.

The middle wheel shows the planets in place in the mid-60s, when the transformation of the economy was seeded.

The outer wheel of the chart shows the planets in place during the oil embargo of 1974, another crucial turning point in the U.S. economy.

The date and time of the birth of the United States is a subject of great debate among astrologers. Most astrologers use the Declaration of Independence of July 4, 1776 for the U.S. chart. There are, however, differing opinions about the correct time, and some astrologers argue that July 4 is not the proper date. The best source for information about the charts of nations is Nicholas Campion’s The Book of World Horoscopes. Campion is an expert astrologer and historian. For a different perspective, see our NewsScope columns by Michael WolfStar, who uses a Scorpio rising U.S. chart. An explanation for WolfStar’s choice.
