The US Horoscope Project (USHRP) is the only thing going on at mundaneastrologers.com right now. The time it occupies is well well worth it. To my knowledge, USHRP is the only place to see all of possible candidates for the US horoscope compared side by side and in relation to important events in US history.

How it all started

USHRP arose out of many discussions on mundane astrologers facebook open group about which chart best fits or describes the United States of America. Despite many seemingly endless discussions, mundane astrologers have yet to definitively decide which chart works best. Tellingly, some of us even conclude that one chart may not sufficiently describe any nation.

The reasons for this lack of consensus flows from the following:

We can and should accept that the United States of America is a

nation-state. Additional insight however may add confusion. A nation and a nation-state are two different, but sometimes interconnected things. A nation-state arises out of a nation, but what is a nation? If we could the USA compare to something that cam before, our job would be easier, but it was on the first, if not the first nation-state. It was the first nation to organize as a state that stemmed from an idea or philosophy rather than out of tribal

 origin. Perhaps even more confusing, it became a nation as it became a nation-state, unlike others who began as organically created nations.

 

Navigating USHRP

The USHRP menu is a dropdown. simply mousover any of the submenu items and click on the one you want. Nothing under 1st &2nd July or Other horoscopes yet. Right now Significant events in US history, Independence horoscopes, Articles of Confederation (AOC) horoscopes and Constitution horoscopes are populated.

 

USHRP so far

As of late December 2015, USHRP posts transit horoscopes for three candidate categories: Declaration of Independence (DOI), Articles of Confederation (AOC) and Constitution signed 17 September 1787. I say candidate categories because there

are more than a few choices under each. There are also others outside of these that may be worth testing.
As of this writing, I have not described much about each horoscope or candidate category. The main reason is that setting this up is time intensive. Another is that I am figuring this out as we go along.

Eventually though, all will get filled in. I already have lots of content saved up from our group discussions and other sources. You can also expect progressions and other directions

What I have seen so far

After looking at the many transits USHRP so far generates, I really find it difficult to conclude one candidate is more significant than another, even though I have a personal preference. I see this as a good sign. If other astrologers see what I see, we can truly have an open minded discussion.
Among the three candidates I have managed to see how they complement one another. This relationship is something that only USHRP can demonstrate. I think we're onto something.
