Source: " "A group of Irish nationalists proclaimed the independence of Ireland on the steps of the central post office in Dublin, initiating the Easter Rising ... this moment represents the central act in modern Irish political mythology. It also represented a fundamental break with the compromise of Home Rule and a decisive shift towards the determination to achieve full independence.

"[...] Royal assent was given to the Irish Act, setting up the Irish Free State, by George V on 5 December 1922. The King signed the proclamation creating the state on 6 December and 'shortly after 5 p.m.' the Parliament of the Irish Free State assembled in Dublin. This chart is set for the assembly of the Parliment, although the time of the signature of the royal proclamation, shortly before, could also reasonably be the basis of a horoscope. From this moment until about 3:30 p.m. on the following day, the whole island of Ireland was a single unified country. The horoscope for partition on 7 December (see United Kingdom) might therefore also be taken as a very significant one for Irish affairs.

"The third horoscope ... is that for the creation of the Republic, which was the moment of complete and total separation from Great Britain ...

"The historical distinction between the three charts is simple. The first represented the beginning of the movement that culminated in independence, and symbolizes the national aspiration for independence, the second represents de facto independence, and the third represents complete de jure separation from Great Britain. It should be noted however, that the first chart was a proclamation of the independence of the whole of Ireland while the second two are cast for stages in the creation of the Republic of southern Ireland, the northernmost countries remaining in the United Kingdom." Campion, "Book of World Horoscopes," pp. 148-149.
