Astrologers who know history are aware that when a "new" planet is discovered, prominent events around the time of discovery reflect the astrological energies of that new planet. The discovery of Uranus coincided with political revolutions including the American Revolution. The discovery of Neptune coincided with the invention of photography and the rise of spiritualism and hypnotism. The discovery of Pluto coincided with the advent of nuclear power.
Here, then, are some events occurring around the discovery of Pallas in 1802:
Mar 16th - US Military Academy established
Mar 25th - France, Netherlands, Spain & Great Britain sign Peace of Amiens
Mar 27th - Treaty of Amiens-French Revolutionary War ends
Mar 28th - Heinrich Wilhelm Matthäus Olbers discovers 2 Pallas.
Apr 8th - French Protestant church becomes state-supported/controlled
May 3rd - Washington, D.C. is incorporated as a city
May 19th - French Order of Legion d'Honneur forms
Jun 4th -
Charles Emmanuel IV of Sardinia abdicates his throne.
Jun 9th - US Academy at West Point founded
Jul 4th - US Military Academy officially opens (West Point, NY)
Aug 2nd - Napoleon declared "Counsel for Life"
The theme of all these events? War, peace, and political power -- issues that my research shows are inextricably intertwined with the astrological function of Pallas.
