A Man of the People
I was challenged by a friend on Facebook to sit through a 70 minute video of an astrologer. dressed in papal robes, with a mitre on his head, discussing how ‘dangerous’ Pope Francis was, according to his birth chart. It was painful to watch.
It might come as no surprise to you who are reading this post to learn that the quality of the astrologer dictates the quality of their output. After all, you cannot get blood from a stone, can you?
Because the birth chart was being dissected with the current crisis of priests sexually abusing children, and the subsequent coverup by the Vatican, Francis was being accused as having been a pedophile himself. That, to me, is a step too far. I needed to review his birth chart for myself to see what is really going on.
The timing of his birth has been suggested by someone who applied for the Pope’s birth certificate (for research purposes). In the past it was common to round the time up to the top of the hour, but in truth, the actual time could be 30 minutes before or 30 minutes after that hour. However, chart rectification shows his election to Pontiff is quite accurate for the position of Saturn @ 16° Pisces 30′. The timing from the Ascendant @ 9° Cancer 58′ indicates that his age was close to 77 years in 2013.
There are rebellious elements all through this chart, the most obvious being Uranus @ 5° Taurus 56′ in the 10th House. As most of the aspects trigger off this planetary placement, it is obvious that Francis will not ‘toe-the-line’ when it comes to what the Roman Catholic Church hierarchy want from him. He is stubborn, too, so the more people want him to condemn the priests, the more he will resist, NOT because he is a pedophile, but because he is empathetic with the underdog. And there are so many underdogs in this crisis.
The Cardinals probably rue the day they elected this Pontiff, and are perhaps actively plotting to force him to resign. No chance, there!
Pope Francis I is a rebel. He had a good example set for him.
After all, Jesus was a rebel, too. And look what they did to him…
