The British Press Nicknamed Him “God’s Rottweiler”

Benedict XVI (April 16, 1927 – December 31, 2022)


It doesn’t come as a shock to me, personally, but the Catholic world is reeling from the death of the former Pope Benedict XVI. He has been unwell for several years, so the end was always on the horizon.

The timing of Joseph Ratzinger’s birth chart is factual. That Mars on the Gemini Ascendant, conjunct his Cancer North Node is a huge clue as to the way the world saw him. Hence the nickname the UK press gave him. (And there are no inconjuncts, so what you saw was what you got, in spades.)

Wednesday, April 20th, 2005 editions of British national newspapers as they report the Tuesday election of Pope Benedict XVI. Pope Benedict XVI pledged on Wednesday to continue the liberalizing reforms of the Second Vatican Council and to work to unify all Christians, as he outlined goals following an election that sent a signal the church was intent on sticking to tradition as it confronts 21st-century problems. Benedict, the former Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, listed top priorities of his pontificate in a message read in Latin to cardinals gathered in the Sistine Chapel for the first Mass celebrated by the 265th leader of the Roman Catholic Church.

He died this morning @ 9:34 local time in Rome.
