Sagittarius 0-1 A "Grand Army Of The Republic" Campfire


Just for some background on this symbol (from Wikipedia):
The "Grand Army of the Republic" (GAR) was a fraternal organization composed of veterans who served in the American Civil War for the Northern/Federal forces. Founded in 1866 it was dissolved in 1956 when its last member died. Linking men through their experience of the war, the G.A.R. became among the first organized advocacy groups in American politics, supporting voting rights for black veterans, promoting patriotic education, helped to make Memorial Day a national holiday, lobbying the United States Congress to establish regular veterans' pensions, and supporting Republican political candidates. Its peak membership, at more than 490,000, was in 1890.

This degree is on the cusp of my midheaven. My sun is conjuncting it from the 9th house in Scorpio, my mercury and jupiter in sag are conjuncting it from the tenth house. I can relate to the symbolism because I was a social worke focused on homeless populations for years, and among them were many veterans. They were from various wars: WW2, The Korean War, Viet Nam, and the Gulf Wars. My job was to help them with anything they needed, from housing, clothing, food, doctor's appointments, etc. I also networked with the local VA hospital. It was a great place, full of support, warmth and many soldier's stories. In short, I was part of humanitarian organizations that helped vets, which seems connected to the Sabian interpretation of the degree.
