Colin Powell (April 5, 1937 – October 18, 2021)
As an Astrologer, I am always fascinated that other Astrologers do not put two-and-two together to come up with a rectified time for the birth of an individual. Such is the case with Colin Powell.
“While attending the City College of New York, Powell joined the Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC). He described the experience as one of the happiest experiences of his life. According to Powell:”
It was only once I was in college, about six months into college when I found something that I liked, and that was ROTC, Reserve Officer Training Corps in the military. And I not only liked it, but I was pretty good at it. That’s what you really have to look for in life, something that you like, and something that you think you’re pretty good at. And if you can put those two things together, then you’re on the right track, and just drive on.Wikipedia
He would have been about 18 years of age (in 1955). I rectified his chart so that Mars would be at about this age.
As a result, there are two inconjuncts that are independent of an exact birth time.
Sun Inconjunct Neptune
You are very sensitive to your environment and to the people around you. On one level of your being, you feel what is going on very acutely. Unfortunately your understanding often comes in terms that are very difficult to communicate to others, because their meaning is not clear in your own mind. Your greatest danger is in being exposed to negative people who are full of anger or depression or who act very harshly toward you and undermine your self-confidence.
If you do develop a bad self-image because of such negative influences, you will assert yourself in unhealthy ways. Instead of standing up for your own rights, you will give in to another’s will, but in such a way as to make that person feel guilty. Often you will refuse to tell someone what you really want, thereby allowing him or her to hurt you without meaning to. You may begin to see yourself as a helpless victim of circumstances.
On the other hand, you can develop into a compassionate and understanding person who instinctively knows what others need and how to serve them. True selfless service to others, giving of yourself voluntarily rather than because you feel there is no choice, will make you feel good, just as the negative behavior described above will make you and everyone else feel bad.
Venus Inconjunct Mars
You must learn to control your emotions to some extent, so that your feelings do not prevent you from getting along with others. It is difficult for you to react to someone without emotions, for you tend to either love or hate people quite intensely. Your feelings are often mixed, even toward your friends. One moment you love your friend, and the next moment you hate him or her. Any little problem can set off your anger against someone, but you usually cool off quickly also. Your close relationships will be a bit stormier than most, but this should not be a serious problem later in life. In fact you probably prefer stormy relationships, because it means that you are really involved with the other person.
While you are young, as well as later, you may be attracted to persons who, if you think rationally about it, do not seem very well suited to you. This problem will be greatest if you do not feel god about yourself, for it is a reflection of your own inner turmoil about love and your right to be loved.
What about the Weapons of Mass Destruction?
Colin Powell Died Yesterday
He was suffering from blood cancer, so the COVID-19 vaccine could not protect him from coronavirus-related effects.
Notice how there are now three inconjuncts in the death chart. The one most sensitive to an exact timing is the Moon inconjunct to the Ascendant. That’s interesting. Let’s look at both charts together.
Perhaps it’s significant that his ‘fatal’ Moon is conjunct his natal Part of Fortune @ 1° Aries. Right up to the very end of his life, and now just beyond his death, he has remained a very popular and well-loved American hero. If ever a soldier dies with that sense of a mission accomplished, he dies happy.
Amen. Rest in peace, sir.
