Karl Marx (May 5, 1818 – March 14, 1883)
With the benefit of hindsight, we look upon figures of history from the perspective of how their ideas turned out. Karl Marx is a case in point. He wanted to make everything equal for everyone, but the ‘powers that be’ decided that his ideas would be unworkable anarchy, so they adapted them to suit their more Animal Farm concept of equality:
Marx’ Birth Chart
This chart was already on my computer program, so I cannot totally confirm its veracity. But the Yod pointing at Mars, with inconjuncts to Uranus and the Ascendant, seems to be correct: a lightning bolt.
Mars Inconjunct Uranus
You have a tendency to be rash and impulsive, which may get in your way. If matters proceed too slowly, you are likely to make a sudden move that upsets the whole situation and forces you to start over again. You must learn to be patient if you want to achieve your objectives.
This energy may also be expressed as a hot temper, especially when you have to endure restriction or limitation. You have a rebellious streak that needs to be disciplined, because everyone has to endure some restrictions, and it takes so little to trigger your temper.
Mars Inconjunct Ascendant
Learn to work for the good of others by making their objectives your objectives, whenever possible. The aspect can signify the ability to accomplish a great deal, as long as you do not spend all your time and energy feeling angry or resentful about seemingly undeserved defeats. When you have a real goal to work toward that you can share with others, you will be able to attain that goal.
In His Birth Chart There are Three Other Inconjuncts (which may apply)
Sun Inconjunct Midheaven
This aspect can mean some tension with one of your parents, although it is not likely to be serious or destructive. In fact it may play a very positive role later on by forcing you to confront certain issues that you would otherwise have ignored. However, while you are young, you may resent this parent quite a bit. Do not take this too seriously, unless some other area of your chart indicates a more negative relationship.
Moon Inconjunct Midheaven
Work very hard to develop an objective awareness of what you are doing and where you are going. You will need this understanding to guide your emotions, which might otherwise lead you astray and make it difficult for you to focus on your goals. Learn to make logical decisions, and do not let passing moods color your attitudes about yourself and your life too much.
Venus Inconjunct Neptune
This aspect means that your attitudes about love and affection are very idealist, as will become clearer later in life. Also it can be a sign of creative artistic ability if there are other indications of creativity in your chart. And, of course, you must begin the appropriate training while you are young.
When you are older, you may have severe problems in love and relationships, because you feel that you are only good enough for society’s losers, people who badly need help or have severe emotional problems. Or you may find someone who seems to be perfect, who will help you out of your problems, but later turns out to be a disappointment.
Does this sound like the type of person that would come back as a Nazi Officer in World War II?
But this seems appropriate these days, n’est-pas?
