Gary Hart, who had tried to win the Democratic Nomination for president in the 1980's, has natal America at 18 Sagittarius 15, square to his natal Neptune at 18 Virgo 49. Up until it became clear that he was being deceptive about his personal 'affairs', it looked like a large portion of the U.S. was going to vote for him.
When I entered the U.S. Air Force in 1973, America was in my 12th, trine to my Mercury/Mars conjunction, but opposition my 6th house Pluto. The entire length of my stay in the military was only five weeks. (Yes, I did get an honorable discharge; the reasons for this are too complicated to include here.) On the day I was discharged America (still in my 12th) was exactly square to my natal Moon. Natally I have America exactly conjunct my MC. That fits in with the fact that my father was not only a devout patriot, but a 'lifer' in the U.S. Marine Corps. What is more, my father had America exactly conjunct his MC.
The aspects of America are not always as easy for me to understand, however. Recently my daughter moved back in with me after an absence of 1-1/2 years, and this occurred when transiting America was exactly conjunct my natal America. Could this America return have anything to do with reuniting a family? My girlfriend raised the possibility that America might tie into the "us" or "them" attitude, or with finding out where you do (and don't) fit in.
America definitely seems to show ties to the U.S. government. Its symbol is from the front of the Great Seal of the U.S., which symbolizes the desire of our founding fathers to create a perfect society grounded in spiritual principles. But this opens up anumber of questions. There are several other countries in the Americas; is this body also significant to the citizens of each of these countries too? If America is significant, should we also be studying such minor planets as Asia and Europa? Should we include in our studies China, Russia, Bolivia and Argentina?
