Linda Masse is an astrologer who achieved a modicum of local fame when she proposed a horoscope for the United States, claiming that people in charge need to take it seriously. Unlike other astrologers such as the late Jeane Dixon, Masse claimed her goal is not to make predictions about what awaits the nation (because if she did her failures would have been more blatant). Rather, she said, she hopes to tap into the “astrological essence” of the country so Americans can learn what to do to help achieve national harmony. The United States was born under the sign of Cancer, which is “very feminine,” she said. “It can be a very nurturing sign or it can be like an overprotective mother stifling the growth of those around it.” Furthermore, the US has a “wounded warrior” in its chart coming from the Planet Chiron in the sign of Aries. “This country needs a lot of healing.” Right. “People digress when they have a wounded warrior that doesn’t heal. When they use the feminine as a martyr, it’s hard to even discuss healing.” At least she doesn’t make any testable predictions.
