On 17 September 2020 there was a Perigee New Moon at 25 Virgo on the 233 year anniversary of the signing of the Constitution and every year around September 17 the Sun returns also known as a Solar Return. See chart below.
September 17, 1787 (in 2020 that is 233 years ago) the approved Constitution was signed by thirty-nine delegates from twelve states (all but Rhode Island). Delegate John Dickinson, was ill and not present, so he had George read and sign his name by proxy.
George Washington, as president of the convention, was the first to sign it. The other delegates signed by state in strict congressional voting order. Washington, however, signed near the right margin, and so when the delegates ran out of space beneath his signature, they began a second column of signatures to the left.
Jackson, the convention secretary, also signed as a witness.
2020 and Beyond
In 2020 on September 17 at the Perigee Virgo New Moon our attention is drawn to this significant anniversary as we contemplate the state of not only the United States but the entire world.
In the book, The Millennium Myth, Love and Death at the End of Time
, the author Michael Gross describes the beginnings of the United States as being founded on the high ideals and principles of equality for all people. The reality is this vision and these ideals have never happened or manifested for WE THE PEOPLE
The vision of equality for all people as an archetypal expression is similar to a Golden Age, and that possibility seems further away than ever. The desire for freedom, including spiritual freedom, and the right to a government that serves ALL the people has been corrupted by those who can buy our politicians and thus control our government for their own ends.
“…the movement of the Myth (in the United States) has been from theocracy to democracy, from frugality to consumerism, from severity to comfortableness, from communitarian self-sacrifice to preoccupation with the Gross National Product. In other words, when people talk about the American dream nowadays, they are thinking more of comfort, convenience, secure jobs, home and manicured lawns, and all the rest of modern amenities.”
The original American dream and Intention as described in the Declaration of Independence and essentially in the constitution as well – was about Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness when happiness referred to the state of the soul or spiritual fulfillment. Now Happiness seems to be collectively defined by material wealth often gained at the expense of others by those who are primarily – or only – concerned about their bottom line.
As described above we can see that the constitution included statements like: We the People and a more Perfect Union, Justice, Domestic Tranquility, Blessings of Liberty now and for future generations. Over time it seems the United States has moved further and further away from the fulfillment of that intent.
It is time We the People hold ourselves accountable to this original vision and take action that supports true fulfillment of this wondrous intent – where the Earth and ALL people are considered important and valued.
It is time this beautifully written intention be honored and acted on so that each of us experience this intent within – so we can then see it being reflected in the greater collective – insuring domestic tranquility, justice, the general welfare and the blessings of liberty.
What would it take for us to be willing to live this in our personal lives?
What would it take for this to be the reality we live going forward?
For those who are interested here is a Noon Chart for the Day the Constitution was signed. The Place should be Philadelphia so will hopefully get that updated soon but it won’t change this chart much!
