Helena Blavatsky (July 31, 1831 [OS] – May 8, 1891)
Baby, do you understand me nowCaldwell Gloria, Marcus Sol, Benjamin Bennie
Sometimes I feel a little mad
But don’t you know that no one alive
Can always be an angel
When things go wrong I seem to be bad
But I’m just a soul whose intentions are good
Oh Lord, please don’t let me be misunderstood
There is probably not a more polarizing figure in Spiritualist history than the Madame. Some think she’s the ‘real deal’, others think she is a fraud and a charlatan. I’m on the fence, really.
This chart is rectified by me, although I cannot remember for the life of me what my reference points were. I did this birth chart years ago, but hesitated to write about it, until now.
There are two inconjuncts, one dependent on a correct birth time, the other not changing throughout her birth day.
Mercury Inconjunct Pluto
You have a rather complicated and sometimes tricky mind. You usually prefer to do things in roundabout and involved ways instead of being simple and direct.
On the positive side, this means tha you enjoy solving puzzles, tracking down mysteries and finding out about hidden matters. At school you might do research in science. You have a natural ability to understand how people’s minds work, what makes them act as they do, and what they are thinking, which is quite amazing for someone your age.
On the native side, however, you might misuse this ability by trying to control people’s thoughts and words. Also you may love mysteries so much that you get involved in complicated plots and arrangements with your friends. You may enjoy working in secret and creating an air of mystery about yourself, but this could backfire and make others misunderstand you or even fear what you are doing. It is important to show people hat you are honest and that you are not hiding anything. Otherwise they will probably suspect you, even if you are totally innocent. And if you aren’t, they will know it for certain.
On another level, this aspect can mean that at certain times in your life you will go through tremendous psychological changes. All your thoughts and opinions will change completely. These stages may seem difficult, but you will be much better off if you let go of the past and welcome the new ideas.
Jupiter Inconjunct Ascendant
With this aspect, you may discover that in order to grow and get ahead in life, you will have to put aside your own needs and do whatever the situation or other people require. At times you will go through tremendous and possibly painful creative changes in your life, in which everything that you are is replace by a new order. Your environment may change radically, or you may lose all your old friends and find a whole set of new ones. During these times you will arrive at new understandings and realizations that make it impossible for your life to continue as before. You must always be open to new ideas and be willing to change your outlook on life.
Probably you will accomplish the most if you direct your energies to tasks that benefit others as well as yourself. It may be that much of your work will not benefit you directly, but in the long run you will gain from it. Even while you are young you need to make a useful contribution to society, and in doing this you will learn and grow as an individual. This is not merely a plea for you to be unselfish, but an assertion that you will achieve your own goals most quickly by doing work that helps others.
On the other hand, if you try to get what you want for yourself alone, especially at other people’s expense, you will find it hard to get anywhere. Also you will have difficulty maintaining your friendships and other relationships. With this aspect, being selfish could have very negative results for your eventual happiness. Do you try to selfishly hold on to what you have. If you give of yourself freely, you will have more.
While not referring to anyone or anything else, this person figures strongly in my personal history for this present lifetime. I have read both Isis Unveiled and The Secret Doctrine, cover to cover. I cannot say that I ‘enjoyed’ them, but they provided me with much food for thought.
The one poem I wrote in 1984, called Bread and Wine, brought a new understanding of the Roman Catholic Eucharist to me. This was inspired by Madame Blavatsky’s writing.
So, the jury is out. Is she a fraud or is she an inspired individual? I recognize that her method of writing is very similar to mine: while compiling her work, she was shown passages from other individual’s ‘secret’ work, which she then shared with the world. Does that make her a plagiarist? Does that make me one? Oh Lord, please don’t let me be misunderstood.
To others, it might seem that I make every post about me, and on the surface that might be true, except that, in my own defence, I wish to remind the reader that we are all ONE.
Let the one with eyes to see, view these connections.
