Ebertin spot on: Mars Pluto and brutal acts

Reinhold Ebertin, say positive and bright modern astrologers, had depressing ways to interpret aspects, probably because of the historic context ((Nazi times). In the ISIS-times of 2014 his views show to be valid again. Brutality, that is what he wrote about Mars-Pluto...

Mars-Pluto's intense energy and fanatic drive to win has a dark side. Reinhold Ebertin mentioned war victims and victims of violent acts*). In times of peace his observations sound harsh. In times of terror, however, they proof to be spot on. Part of the world and because of the threath, all of the world, is now in Nazi-times again. The terrorist group 'Islamic State' uses that brutal force. On June 29, 2014, (proclamation of IS) Mars was opposition Uranus, square Pluto and semi sextile Saturn (a combination for rebellion and unnatural death).

The violent and horrifying deaths of two American journalists, trapped in the bare dessert and surrounded by heartless religious fanatics, were just two more murders in an endless massacre and criminal scene of murder, rape, robbery and torture. The Americans were not fighting in that war and unarmed. They worked there to tell us about the war and the crimes. You can find their days of birth on the internet and see: in their natal charts there is Mars inconjunct Pluto aspect within a two degree orb. Their job was linked to danger. They took a big risk in being there and they payed the highest price to do their job.

Mars inconjunct Pluto is a dangerous aspect in dangerous places and times.

This Mars-Pluto aspect also effected us, the horrified public.

Ebertin was right about Mars - Pluto in times of war. He had observed the charts of war victims and he noticed that aspect. The two Americans are war victims, too.

It's horrific that in the 21st century we had to see the crimes of criminals like the Nazis. And it is sad that Ebertin's view on Mars-Pluto proofs to be spot on again.

What's your orientation? Your chart shows you.


Talk about astrology and most of the time people know ' their sign' (the astrological sign of the sun). That is just part of what your chart tells you. The amount of information stops the majority on the way to learning astrology, so that the sun sign and sometimes the ascendant is all that they know. If they only had the drive to learn the symbols and look at their charts, they would be able to find the most important keys to themselves and their main characteristics. You can find them in your Astro ID like you can find them in the shape of your face, the scars and the color of your eyes. That is what your chart won't tell you (at least, not that I know of), but your chart can tell you:

1. Your general view of life itself (your orientation)
2. Your crucial values and objectives (planets on the angles)
3. Your motivation (Sun/Moon midpoint aspects)
For 2. and 3. you need to have your hour and place of birth (and your own personal chart, to be calculated for free on the internet).

So calculate that chart (for example on Astro.com) and learn or find the symbols. Here is the link to The Mountain Astrologer's site to help you on the way: http://www.mountainastrologer.com/standards/new_to_astro/beginners/symbols.html

HOW TO FIND THE PLANET OF ORIENTATION?
Noel Tyl, in his book Vocations, points at the importance of what he names the 'oriental' planet, the planet rising before the sun. Here is how to find that point in your chart. Get your chart and find the Sun's symbol (a circle with a point in the middle).  Now move your finger clockwise in the circle (your finger moves to the right). What is the first object that you see? Found? Then search on the internet or buy books about the first planet rising before your sun! Or get an idea here! Was it...

Mercury? Well, like many of us, you would love to be a writer, but it will depend on Mercury's position (on an angle, without aspects, Out of Bounds) and your position in the world if you will succeed in communicating or being the 'intellectual'. So find the next planet.

Venus? You go for love, peace, beauty and happiness! The importance of estetics for your career or life style depends on a special position of Venus (on an angle, without aspects, Out of Bounds) and of course on your situation and place in society. You might just look for fun or beautiful women, at worse. So look at the next object. Move on that finger!

Mars? First, you want to DO something (about it). You are likely to be active, assertive and energetic enough to be an activist or soldier or entrepreneur. Or you are 'productive' (and more sexual active than the rest of us). Iron ladies have it (Margareth Thatcher). Read about it: http://astropost.blogspot.nl/2009/04/mars-oriental-outer-planet-rising.html or see the post on the oriental Mars of Nicolas Anelka: http://astropost.blogspot.nl/2010/06/nicolas-anelka-and-raymond-domenech.html and Johan Cruyff: http://astropost.blogspot.nl/2010/03/el-presidente-johan-cruijff.html

If Mars is on the horizon or meridian, too or if Mars is Out of Bounds or not making any major aspect in sign or orb 5 degrees, this Mars will be even more important!

Jupiter? You are a positive person, looking forward to traveling, everything 'international' and/or publishing. Many internationals (in sports or football) have such a Jupiter, like Guus Hiddink (see the chart of his day of birth). More examples on this blog are:

1. http://astropost.blogspot.nl/2010/11/jupiter-zeppelins-and-lady.html ('Gracie' Hay Drummond-Hay)
2. http://astropost.blogspot.nl/2010/02/detroit-hero-jasper-schuringa-and.html (traveller who stopped terrorist on flight)
3. Belgian Queen Mathilde has it: http://astropost.blogspot.nl/2009/04/most-charming-princess-mathilde.html. That, and a prominent Venus:)
4. Dutchman (107) living in Belgium, teacher English: http://astropost.blogspot.nl/2009/03/107-year-old.html 
5. Criminal Joran van der Sloot is Dutch, born in Willemstad (Curacao island), is wanted in the USA and presently an inmate in Peru. Meanwhile he lived in Thailand for a while. The international...See the chart: http://astropost.blogspot.nl/2008/11/mercury-square-jupiter-and-natal-chart.html
6. Author Oriana Fallaci's chart has Jupiter rising before the Sun: http://astropost.blogspot.nl/2010/06/oriana-fallaci-born-june-29-and-vesta.html

If Jupiter is on the horizon or meridian, too or if Jupiter is Out of Bounds or not making any major aspect in sign or orb 5 degrees, this Mars will be even more important!

Saturn? You are classical:). For you it is Duty First! You follow your parents footsteps or try to walk the conventional ways. This makes you a perfect manager, caretaker for the elderly or scientist. Parenthood (and being responsible or guided by parents) is important for you. You might work for the government (or be part of it). Take for example Jean Claude Juncker http://astropost.blogspot.nl/2014/06/jean-claude-junckers-saturn-and-chiron.html
or André Rieu
http://art-astrology.blogspot.nl/2008/12/astrology-chart-of-andr-rieu.html
Of course, an angular or not aspected Saturn or OOB Saturn rising before the Sun is twice as strong!
Here is a tragic example (with Saturn involved with Mars and Pluto: http://astropost.blogspot.nl/2011/07/midpoint-combination-mars-saturn-pluto.html

Uranus? I found Uranus rising before the sun in a number of charts of people who were very very old and I wonder if that is, because they are a. special b. a little out of time, not of 'today'. Here is the post:  http://astropost.blogspot.nl/2011/03/uranus-rising-before-sun.html When you are the only one left of your generation, you might feel like an alien sometimes. With Uranus oriental you may be trying to make this (or your own) world a better place or you are a rebel. Hugo Chavez had it  and Evita Perron had it (and they died rather young, so Uranus rising before the Sun is NOT a guarantee for living long). Sacha Baron Cohen has it. See any similarities?
(Note: Angular, not aspected or OOB Uranus rising before the Sun is extra important)

Neptune? You see the world as a magic place. You may look like a dreamer (and sometimes you are...). But sometimes you look softer than you really are...This Neptune is confusing, often 'double', anonymous or unclear, hiding behind nicknames or simply 'not of this world' (drifting on a cloud). There are ideological/idealistic politicians with Neptune rising before the sun, like Hilary Clinton. Faith, religion, fantasy or ideals guide you. Illusionist often have it. I have examples like Hans Kok, Houdin and Criss Angel...well, start with the chart of David Blain).

Pluto? Strategists have it, and politicians. They play checkons all the time. When Pluto rises before the Sun you see the importance and value of power, money, strength and influence. You may appear stronger than you are. Fifty percent of the 'James Bond's' have Pluto rising before the Sun and they are sure courageous, aren't they?:) They are also sexy and impress you somehow. Have a look here: http://astropost.blogspot.nl/2008/11/chart-of-birth-day-of-daniel-craig.html,starting with Daniel Craig. Late Dutch Prince Bernhard (married to Queen Juliana) also had Pluto rising before the Sun.

The Moon rises before the Sun in the charts of people who's live depends on being part of a family, a group (a party, a tribe) or of the way that they know how to deal with their desires. Sometimes there is an orientation on children, childhood and education. Emotions and needs might lead you on the way through life (in a positive or in a negative way). You are the kind of person who is 'emotionally involved', like Mahatma Ghandi was.

Of course, you can have asteroids rising before your sun. They are as important as their position is in your chart (on an angle, for example, on Sun/Moon midpoint or tightly conjunct your Sun). In those cases, search the labels or find other sources to get the intrinsic meaning of that for you. If it is Juno, (finding) a partner might very important, for example.

There are always more ways to look at the meaning of a planet and there are always more parts of the chart to be considered. A very important planet, Sun or Moon might just 'spoil' the effect. Also, it very much depends on who you are, how old you are and where you live. If you are born somewhere on a mountain without money or perspective, the oriental Jupiter perhaps brings you to the library or study before you can start traveling. So take the ideas above and start working with them!

Saturn and Queen Elizabeth I's chart at time of death


Queen Elizabeth I (born September 7, 1533) died March 24, 1603, age 69. That was with Transit Saturn exactly conjunct her progressed Sun. It was not the only aspect (when important things happens, there is always more..like here Mars-Uranus and Sun-Eris). Transit Saturn conjunct progressed Sun was by far the most important aspect that day, for two reasons:

1. Saturn is important in her chart, because Saturn rises before her natal Sun.
2. In the natal chart the Sun is sextile Saturn. That makes any Sun-Saturn contact of vital importance.

Sun-Saturn aspects mark the serious view of life. She happened to be depressed because of the loss of a friend and the betrayal of a man she trusted. Unfortunately, the Sun rules the 8th house and is IN the 8 house. The 8th house is the house of crisis.

The chart of Elizabeth I mirrors what happened (depressions, goodbyes) and that it had effect on her health and way of life.

A lost battle and Mars inconjunct Eris


It is hard to believe today, but on August 30, 1799 a joined force of British and Russian soldiers defeated the entire Dutch fleet and invaded a part of Holland. Eventually, they had to give up and were allowed to leave the country unmolested. Now how did the Dutch chart look that day?
For a better view, click the chart
When a war or a battle is concerned, I always look for Mars-Eris combinations as Mars is the symbol of war and competing, while Eris is the goddess of disharmony. I use to find that combination.

Transit Varuna (ruling the seas) was trine Eris (perfect time for a sea battle) but…
Transit Mars in the 12th degree of Virgo was inconjunct natal Eris, which is a perfect statement for a lost war incident.
Transit Eris was inconjunct natal IC (and Saturn inconjunct natal DC).

That completes the rule of 3.  Watch transit Jupiter moving on to make a trine with Midheaven. That is why the victory couldn’t lastJ.]


On October 6 (Battle of Castricum) ended in the unharmed retreat of the British-Russian army, shortly after transit Venus was trine the Dutch MC. Venus is for peace and kindness.

Virgo astrologer Edith Wangemann

Edith Wangemann was born August 29, 1917 in Germany. Together with her husband, and after his death alone, she practiced and studied astrology. She was married to an astrologer (Helmuth Wangemann). A picture shows that he knew Reinhold Ebertin. I have no idea how they made a living.

Astro.com mentions the couple's scientific approach. In her chart this might be mirrored by the position of their Saturn, rising before the natal Sun. This post is about the astrologer in her chart and about the way that Sun in Virgo shows up.

ASTROLOGER AND JUPITER+URANUS
Cosmic awareness is perhaps one of the best descriptions for Jupiter/Uranus midpoints and aspects. This aspect- or midpoint combination for the helicopter view is always present in the charts of astrologers (and astronauts). Maybe even also in the charts of astronomers, LOL.
It's also the midpoint of being inventive and the transit of 'sudden windfall'. Maybe, in the case of astrologers, the windfall is less 'unexpected':)...

There is also a Jupiter/Uranus connection in the chart of Edith Wangemann.
In the chart of Edith Wangemann midpoint Jupiter/Uranus is square Midheaven. The natal Sun is square Jupiter in Gemini*) and in quindecile (165d) aspect with the 'calling' VIP Uranus.  Her Sun/Moon midpoint semi square Mercury indicates that she was very motivated to communicate about her main interest (astrology).

Click for a better picture


BTW, her husband was an Aquarius with Sun square Jupiter and sextile ruler Uranus.

THE VIRGO ASTROLOGER
Now, in what way did she practice being a Virgo? In the post about Virgo astrologer Zipporah Dobyns I mentioned ways to do so:

- keep up the standards and never believe it all
- contribute to perfect data
- find ways to use astrology in every day's life (without drifting away, I mean)

By studying charts, keeping record of it and
*) She particularly studied the charts of twins. Gemini is the sign of twins.
