Race in America: Chiron and the USA’s 4th House Wound

Abut two years ago I recorded this audio piece on Chiron in the USA chart for SoundCloud, and today I created it as an audio-only video for YouTube.

Evolutionary Astrologer, Energy Worker, and Channel Tom Jacobs offers channeled perspectives from Ascended Master Djehuty (a.k.a. Thoth, St. Germain, Merlin, and Hermes) on the United States as a melting pot that’s really a crucible for accelerated exploration of self-vs.-other fears and pain, including racism and slavery.

Tom touches on the US’s Pluto conjunct the South Node and then spends much time on its Chiron in Aries/4th house, the current transit of Chiron recently stationed retro just over the US’s IC, its next Chiron return in a few years and, most importantly, the progressed Chiron return building now that perfects in 2060 just after the US progressed Sun passes over Chiron in 2055.

Racial violence (including police shootings after which the officers are acquitted and the white supremacist attacks in Portland) is part of this story as Tom seeks to explain the core of the wounding about race and the urge to demonize the other at the root of the social fabric of the United States.

Strategies for dealing with the feelings that come up amid this cultural context as this wound is laid bare more and more are suggested.
