Prince Rupert of the Rhine (Dec 17, 1619, Prague)
Sometimes, when you watch a TV series like Outlander, you can tend to forget that there were real-life ‘stars’ who operated in their own ‘divine right’. Prince Rupert was one such individual.
The timing of this chart is randomized, but, even so, everything seems to revolve around Neptune. The Yod (Finger of God) is partially dependent on the timing as one inconjunct is pointing to Pisces Rising, but the other inconjunct is fixed on Pluto. (And for good measure, Jupiter is in his 1st House opposite to Neptune, while Mars is in his 12th House trine to the same planet. In fact, Saturn completes the Grand Trine connecting Mars and Neptune.)
Neptune Inconjunct Ascendant
This aspect can be a sign that you feel you must give way to others in order to get along with them. This can take two forms both of which will be difficult to handle while you are young. The less positive form is simply yielding to all outside pressure and always giving in to others’ desires. This will produce unconscious feelings of resentment that you can’t express, but that make your relationships with others rather difficult. And as you get older, if you do not learn to stand up for your rights, this problem will get worse, because you express your unconscious resentment as a martyred attitude, which makes it impossible for others to appreciate or use anything they get from you. Thus the results of your sacrifice are totally negative, because you are not happy with giving and they are not happy with receiving.
But the other, more positive, way of dealing with this energy is by giving freely before others try to take it from you. In order to do this, you have to feel good about yourself and confident that you will always have enough for yourself and others. One side of you likes to help and take care of people and will not feel taken [advantage of] by those whom you give to. In the highest expression of this aspect, what you gain for yourself will not mean as much as what you gain for others, which is the effect you should work for.
My connection with Prince Rupert is part of my history as Pierre-Esprit Radisson. I felt he was always an honest member of the royalty. I wasn’t so sure of the rest.
