Sir Eight was a Very Faithful Dog even until Death

Hachikō (November 10, 1923 – March 8, 1935)

Circa 1934

Now, you knew I couldn’t let this rest until I’d looked at this dog astrologically.

His birth chart is randomized. I was really wanting to see if there were any inconjuncts not dependent on a correct time. There is one, but the accidental opposition of his natal Pluto and his Ascendant is what stands out for me. However, I digress.

Mars Inconjunct Uranus

This energy may 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. Sometimes you may make sudden moves that startle people. You may make a decision very quickly and start to act on it immediately, but that is not such a good idea. Make up your mind more slowly, or at least wait for a while until you start to act. If your idea still looks good a couple of days later, it is probably all right to go ahead with it.

(Nine years, nine months and fifteen days is definitely patient earned and learned.)

Pluto Opposition Ascendant

Every close relationship will teach you something about yourself and give you increased self-understanding. Your relationship have an emotional intensity that you may not be aware of now, but later on you will seek it.


Going by the film, it would seem like our little furry friend died a couple of hours after waiting yet again for the 5 o’clock train, so I set the time of his death at 7 pm. That ‘accidental’ Yod pointing at the fatal Ascendant of 4° Libra (balance) speaks loudly to me. The inconjuncts come from the Moon (emotions) and Saturn (patience). The only other inconjunct links Venus (love) and Neptune (mystery).

The film has a spiritual overtone that makes perfect sense. When he died he finally saw his master coming through the door of the train station. Now they could be reunited for all eternity. (Boo-hoo.)
