Samuel de Champlain (August 13, 1567 – December 25, 1635)
When I was young, I knew all about this man, but I was never impressed with his story. I always wondered why. But I know better now.
As this chart is totally randomized, I’m not sure if I can trust the one inconjunct, but the Cosmic Cross is impressive. That alone might explain the capricious nature of his personality. Pluto figures in his story, either way: Pluto in Pisces opposite Mercury/Saturn in Virgo; square Moon/Uranus in Sagittarius; square Mars/Neptune in Gemini. That’s a lot of changeability…

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 are trying to teach you. To a great extent, your path in life will be shaped by your early confrontations with authority figures…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 isn’t my job to repair a man’s reputation in history. This happens over time, as peoples’ minds change, especially now with Indigenous memory being reviewed by later generations.
Perhaps, like John A. Macdonald, his statues will come under scrutiny and be taken down. No one’s place in history is safe, these days. I, for one, will not be mourning the loss.
