Napoleon Bonaparte (August 15, 1769 – May 5, 1821)
Alright, I’ve skirted around this issue long enough. Now it’s time to tackle it head on.
Most astrology sites list Napoleon’s birth time as 11:00 am. One actually has 11:30 am. I’m going to split the difference and use 11:15 am, just because I can. (Birth times in the past have always been rounded up to the top of the hour, or rounded down to the half.)
So, only one inconjunct, which is dependent on the time.
Pluto Inconjunct Midheaven
You may have trouble with older people who try to teach you how to effectively take control of your life. Even while you are young, you may resent their control over you and resist everything that they are trying to teach you. To a great extent, your path in life will be shaped by your early confrontations with authority figures. Your parents would be well advised to give you as much control as possible over your own affairs and as much self-determination as you can handle. They should not try to keep an extremely tight rein on you, for if they do, you will explode and become very difficult to handle. Also your self-esteem would be damaged. Your parents and teachers should be very straightforward with you, because if you feel that people are not being honest with you, you will not be honest with them, You are quite capable of acting behind people’s backs if you consider it necessary or if you feel that you never get your own way.
Another problem that can arise if you are not treated properly is that you may withdraw into yourself and become very secretive, as though you have something to hide even when you don’t. This can make people distrust you.
It should come as no surprise, therefore, that Napoleon had Scorpio Rising and Jupiter in Scorpio in the First House (of Personality). That’s a bit too much of a hidden agenda.
The accuracy of Napoleon’s death time is attested to by The Times. We’re on solid ground here, but notice how the Ascendant is at 18 degrees in Scorpio, very close to where Jupiter was in his birth chart. As a result, the ‘fatal’ conjunctions of Mercury, Mars and Saturn are inconjunct to the Ascendant, while his ‘fatal’ Jupiter in Aries is inconjunct to his ‘natal’ Jupiter. Interesting.
When I compared Trump’s birth chart, with Napoleon’s ‘death’ chart, I didn’t get any significant hits, so we may be in a similar situation where the birth chart energies may have the only planetary links between them. In other words, these two are operating with a similar pattern, but they are not connected reincarnationally.
The most significant link seems to be between the North Node/South Node axis in Napoleon’s chart being flipped to the opposite polarity in Trump’s. And Trump’s Mars/Ascendant is conjunct Napoleon’s Sun. Also there’s an almost exact conjunct between Trump’s Mercury and Napoleon’s Saturn. There are other links, too: Trump’s Pluto conjunct Napoleon’s Mercury and Trump’s Mercury conjunct Napoleon’s Venus.
The desire to be Emperor is built into Trump’s blueprint. But he’s not Napoleon reborn.
Did you ever wonder why the Brit’s call their lavatory a “loo”? Water closet = Waterloo.
