Another Revolutionary Returns as a 3rd Party Candidate

Charles Thomson (November 29, 1729 – August 16, 1824)

I’ve got to hand it to the author of “Return of the Revolutionaries”, he wouldn’t give up on trying to identify past lives of famous people even when it took him more than seven years. Ahtum Re finally told him to look for a Thomson, or a Thomason. He finally found Charles Thomson in a library book.

After going through a hundred books or so without success, my hopes began to dim. Suddenly, in a large text, which most likely hadn’t been opened in years, I saw the name of Charles Thomson in the index, with a portrait also identified by a page number. Could this be what I was looking for? As I turned to the page with the portrait, I saw Ralph Nader’s face, with his distinctive eyebrows and the sharp vertical line on one side, symmetrically reflected in the face of Charles Thomson.

In a subsequent session with Kevin Ryerson, Ahtun Re confirmed that Ralph Nader was Charles Thomson in the Revolutionary Era.

I have randomized this birth chart, so we cannot really rely on the placement of the Moon, the Ascendant or the Midheaven. However, there were no obvious inconjuncts, so what we see is what we get: Mercury/Uranus exactly conjunct, and Jupiter/South Node (almost) exactly conjunct.

The 12 noon death chart raises two interactive inconjuncts, one pointing at Mars from Saturn and Pluto, and the other pointing at Saturn from Mars and Neptune. These may be important later.

They do look similar, don’t they? Everyone knows who Ralph Nader is. I don’t remember doing his chart before now, but it was already on my computer program.

Ralph Nader’s birth chart has four inconjuncts: Moon and Mars; Mercury and Jupiter; Saturn and Pluto; and Uranus and the Midheaven. So, somewhere over the intervening years between these two incarnations, Nader has become more complicated. But is it real?

The biggest clue? Their natal Moon positions are within 2°. And Nader’s natal Venus is conjunct Thomson’s natal North Node, while Nader’s Part of Fortune is (almost) exactly conjunct Thomson’s ‘fatal’ South Node. So, yes, these two are definitely connected over time.
