Once Upon a Time, Your Words Could Get You Burned at the Stake

Giordano Bruno (1548 – 1600)

I’ve written about one aspect of Giordano Bruno‘s life before: it was part of the opening chapter of my “Star of Bethlehem” manuscript. It concerned whether one should even cast the horoscope of Jesus of Nazareth. It makes me wonder if the same ‘rules’ that operated more than 400 years ago would have had the same result, today, for me.

(A subsequent search showed that it wasn’t Bruno in that introductory chapter…)

I decided to look at Bruno’s birth chart, but that’s where the first difficulty gets presented: no one knows exactly ‘when’ he was born, let alone ‘what time’. Most biography sites state that it was January or February in 1548. When I went looking for a birth chart done by someone else, the suggested date was March 30th, old style. They also had a time that was obviously randomized. So I’m going with that…

This looks ‘inspired’. Uranus is the apex of a double Yod, involving the Sun and Mercury (on one side) and Mars (on the other). And Mars is conjunct to Pluto. I would say that Uranus is ‘out on a limb’ here, in Virgo. But how much can we rely upon the chart? I have no idea, really. But my instinct is to go with it.

His ‘execution’ chart is a little more precise, in that the date and place is known in history. The timing is also randomized by me, but I think it shows enough to suggest that it’s ‘real’.

This time there is an inconjunct between the Moon and Venus (with the Moon sitting in conjunction with Jupiter and Pluto on either side). When you combine the two charts, the bigger picture appears:

The original Yod in Bruno’s birth chart is now accentuated by Pluto and the Midheaven in his ‘fatal’ chart. So, Uranus is the reason he was executed by the Roman Catholic Church. He was four centuries too far ahead of his time to be tolerated. He would have been better accepted today. Sometimes, it cannot be helped. Truth is truth, no matter when it was stated.

So, just for fun, I compared my own birth chart to Bruno’s. We’re connected, for sure. But it could be that my life’s purpose is ‘just’ to carry on with his work. Who knows?
