Alexander the Great and Charlemagne
When I do a birth chart for a famous/notorious person in history, I tend to think of them in terms of their era, alone. Only later do I realize that they connect with others who effectively completed their work. Such is the case of Alexander and Charles (both Great in their own right). Eastern Europe, Near East, to the Indian Subcontinent on one hand in the 3rd century BCE, and Western Europe on the other hand in the 9th century. It only took 1,140 years or so. Now do you understand why individuals reincarnate?
Look at those close connections! Alexander’s Moon conjunct Charlemagne’s Pluto; Alexander’s Pluto conjunct Charlemagne’s Sun/Venus aspect; Alexander’s Uranus conjunct Charlemagne’s Moon; Alexander’s Part of Fortune conjunct Charlemagne’s Uranus; Alexander’s Mercury conjunct Charlemagne’s Part of Fortune. And the one that really matters for conquering heroes: both have Mars in Gemini, within 8 degrees.
I’m not going to belabour this happy ‘coincidence’ but it does remind me that WE ARE ONE ANOTHER, even when we appear in different times and different places.
