The first Boston chart can be seen as the primary personality that the city was built upon and the incorporation chart for Boston as the vibe of the city that it evolved into.
The astrology chart for Boston when it was founded has a strong Virgo and Aquarius characteristic. The combination of Virgo and Aquarius is extremely independent. This is the signature of a city that would value hard work, not necessarily glamorous, but inventive and unique. The individuals who would feel at home here are intellectuals that always want to learn and improve their skills. This chart of Boston attracts people that are not afraid of being different and are willing to interact and connect with people from other cultures. Education is highly valued, it would attract students, teachers, and authors. Having a good time and fun is second to work, yet when it is time to play, effort into hobbies and free time is embraced with much gusto and enthusiasm. Work hard, play harder could have begun its roots in the streets of Boston.
Incorporation as a city (from a town) was approved February 23, 1822, subject to acceptance by the voters at a legal town meeting (1822 January Session, Massachusetts Acts and Resolves, Chapter 111, pp. 734-753). The incorporation charter was approved by the inhabitants at the last town meeting held on March 4, 1822 (Gilman, 1889, p. 422).
The approval by the towns people created an incorporation chart of Boston which evolved into a city with a Pisces Sun and Moon in Leo. There are 4 planets in Pisces, which is known for attempting to be all things to all people and have unclear boundaries. Of course having all that water in the chart next to the ocean would imply the love the residents have of the water and its watering holes. Bars and restaurants would be important to the culture of the city, having time to be with friends and have a few drinks together is in the fabric of the chart. Pisces energy has a crises of faith, Boston has had its share of scandals stemming from the priesthood. Yet Pisces is more about spirituality than dogma. This can be a place that could feel right for seekers of spiritual truths and love of yoga and rejuvenating retreats.
Boston has its moon in Leo, it is not all sacrifice and piety. The moon iin Leo brings out the fun element. Enjoying time off and making room for celebrating life’s precious moments are also part of the fabric of the personality of Boston.
