Horoscope of Black Tuesday 1929
Very few notes today…out of town company just left and things must be put back together from a 3-year-old’s rearrangements…still, I wanted to splash up this chart for noon of ‘Black Tuesday 1929’ for you, set for NYC.
Click to enlarge for a few of my chicken- scratch notations.

Back to my original post:
Sun at Midheaven (Mc)…’6Sco’…”A Gold Rush” (!!); Moon 1Lib42..’2Lib’…”The Light of the Sixth Race Transmuted to the Seventh” – plus, the Moon is in a karmic spot in 8th house (of Shared Resources; Credit; Debit; Inheritance; Legacies; Insurance, Transformations; Death; the Occult, etc) near 9th cusp.
Moon is conjunct US natal Mc by one degree if you use America’s so-called Sibly chart (July 4, 1776; 5:10 pm LMT; Philadelphia, Pa; Sag rising.)
1929’s North Node and Chiron are conjunct as they are now, but without Neptune’s company as now…asteroid Midas, who is always around where there are big piles of gold to hoard…is conjunct Chiron-North Node, and also conjunct the midpoint of Jupiter-Uranus = ‘the big break; boundless optimism; success’ at’13Tau’…”A Man Handling Baggage.”
Well, the stock market crash of 1929 meant a ‘big break’ for a few select people – very few. The rest were then, as now, left out of Jupiter’s largesse.
Here is a success-filled midpoint picture from the above-pictured chart:
Pluto-NN = Jupiter: forcing oneself into a power position; attaining success through others; self-promotion.
Pluto-NN (powerful associations) = Pluto/Chiron (plutocracy; corporatism; racism; violence, oppression, ++ = expansive Jupiter (Mr. Moneybags, with FDR and ‘the Fed’ soon on the way. President Herbert Hoover was inaugurated March 4, 1929, so Hoover was at the helm just as…well, you know the varmint’s name…he and his saddlebags full of money have turned his pony, Paint, toward the West and ultimately toward the Bush compound in Paraguay.)
Now what about the Sun Sco-Moon Libra blend’s Images for Integration?
‘A criminal lawyer auditions for the lead part in a new play about heroes of the second-world-war resistance movement…A passionate poet leads the “Poets for Peace” mass demonstration.’ (‘Sun Sign – Moon Sign’, Charles and Suzi Harvey.)
Okay, so WWII hadn’t occurred yet, but it’s the essence of the day we’re seeking here, and perhaps 1929’s ‘criminal lawyer’ is still trying to tell us something!
