Vespasian (November 17, 9 AD – June 23, 79 AD)
This man was never intended for Roman Imperial Glory. He came from an equestrian family, meaning that he was no better than a soldier, just like Pontius Pilate. But his ability to plan and carry out strategic battles meant that he rose through the ranks, first as a general and then as a senator. He was the fourth emperor in the “Year of Four Emperors”. He is also credited with building the Roman Colosseum.
Here is his birth chart:
This chart was already in my Kepler 7.0 program, with this birth time, but the date was wrong, so I have changed it to the correct date, and left the time as originally stated. The result is a chart with three inconjuncts (almost five in reality).
Moon Inconjunct Venus
You need to be loved, even more than most people, particularly by your mother or another woman who takes the place of your mother. This need for love will be the force behind many of your actions. If you don’t find the love you are looking for, you may develop an insecure hunger for love from everyone you meet.
Mercury Inconjunct Ascendant
You are likely to have some problems, but not serious ones, in communicating with others. The problem is that people’s first impression of you may not fit in with what you say or your manner of thinking and speaking. People tend to hear what they expect to hear, and they may not listen to you as carefully as they should. So you will have to be as clear as possible and insist that others listen to what you are really saying. If others do not understand you, it is up to you to set them straight.
Uranus Inconjunct Neptune
This aspect indicates a generation that had mixed feelings about its ideals and how to implement them. They often felt very confused about their ideals, and when they found that their ideals failed because they were badly formulated, this group became disillusioned. States of consciousness beyond the ordinary are very confusing to them, and they prefer not to get involved with such matters.
So, his become God the Father via Josephus’ spin probably didn’t sit well with Vespasian. Hence the irony of this oft-stated quote from his deathbed (see bottom):
