The obscure Hitler’s relationship with his niece Geli (an astrological analysis)

Astrology is a powerful tool! It enables us to transcend time and space, to penetrate entire centuries or even millennia and go back in the distant past and “experience” from an incredible vicinity some major historical occurrences that have been poorly recorded and thus remain obscure, to revive human stories and situations we know very little about. It enables us to probe and somehow “resuscitate” the lives, the character and the behaviours of historical key-figures and meaningful situations that would be otherwise irrevocably lost in the mist of the time….Thanks to astrology we are able of penetrating even the sanctuary of an intimate relationship (provided we are given the birth data of its members)!

Today (I am writing this article on June 4th, 2015), 107 years ago, the flirtatious but rather inconspicuous girl you see above was born. Her name was Geli Raubal. She was Adolf Hitler’s niece (half-niece actually) and according to many his lover (the prestigious “Astrodienst” for example is explicitly reporting Geli as being “Hitler’s mistress”)!

We do have in our disposition Hitler’s complete horoscope. He was a Taurus, with a Capricornian Moon and his Ascendant in Libra (born on April 20th, 1889, at 6:30 pm in Braunau am Inn in Austria). The first thing that is striking us in the study of their Synastry is that Hitler doesn’t seem to be astrologically compatible with Geli, who was a Gemini with a proud and fearless Leonian Moon (she was born on June 4, 1908 in Linz Austria. No time provided)! On the contrary, there seems to be a huge incompatibility between Hitler’s Taurean stellium and Geli’s Moon in Leo (the Moon being crucial in a woman’s horoscope)! Inexplicably though Hitler seemed to be extremely fond of Geli! For 3 whole years (from 1929 to 1931) he was housing her in his Munich apartment. And he wouldn’t go anywhere (in a cafe, a restaurant etc.) unless he had Geli on his side!

Nobody can say for sure whether the Hitler’s – Geli’s relationship was a sexual one or not. What we definitely know is that it was the most intense relationship in Hitler’s life! And that this relationship was permeated by an extreme possessiveness, especially from Hitler’s part. When Hitler found out that Geli had a fling with his private chauffeur he threatened to shoot him! In 1931 Geli asked Adolf to leave the apartment and go back to Vienna in order to take singing lessons (a Jewish  man she was in love with was secretly awaiting her). But Hitler furiously refused and ordered his guards to get tighter on her. On September 18, 1931 Geli was found dead in Hitler’s apartment. Apparently she had committed suicide, shooting herself on her chest with one of Hitler’s pistols. She was 23 years old!

So, what’s the story behind Hitler’s – Geli’s relationship? Because there is something deeper there and that something we have to find out! You see relationships – any kind of them  – do not casually “result”. They are dictated by profound needs of ours and they are attuned to often obscure and irrational facets of our souls – facets we are not very much aware of. But Astrology can substantially assist us in this direction! So, let’s take a look at their Synastric bi-wheel (with Hitler’s natal chart in the inner circle and Geli’s in the outer one):

Αs Ι already explained, the two of them do not seem to be particularly compatible – under an astrological point of view. There is however a “latent” synastric element that might create a certain degree of compatibility between them. Hitler’s Moon is located in the restless, youthful and communicative Third House of his chart. This configuration alone – isolated from the rest of the chart – denotes that a Gemini woman could ultimately be the ideal Adolf’s partner (as the Third House is tightly related to the sign of Gemini)!

It also impresses us the fact that both Geli’s Sun and Pluto are falling in Hitler’s Eighth House (while simultaneously her Sun is in a wide conjunction to Hitler’s Pluto)! That’s a very powerful Synastric configuration! Actually, the Eighth House is the BIG MERGER! It does unite and merge two individuals (physically, mentally, psychologically, financially, erotically etc.) to the extent that the two interconnect to a very visceral and profound level, within the deepest reaches of their souls! Under the Eighth House’s spell the partners are somehow “squeezed” the one over the other, till they finally shed the shell of their individuality and merge into a single entity, transforming themselves into – let’s say – the legendary “Androgynous”! And with such a strong Eighth House emphasis some very powerful drives and passions dominate this relationship. Which, unless sexually consumed or somehow “sublimated” might eventually give birth to feelings of mortal hatred and hostility!

Since we don’t know Geli’s time of birth we don’t know too the exact degree her Moon is in. We are absolutely sure though that it is in Leo, around the 13th degree of that sign. Thus, it is probably forming a tight conjunction with Hitler’s Saturn! This means that Geli was experiencing Adolf as a sort of (strict and severe) father figure. On the other hand, Hitler was feeling very complacent having this brilliant and vivacious young woman by his side! The Saturn – Moon conjunction might also mean that he was somehow controlling and limiting her (psychologically, spatially etc), that he was ever trying to discipline her! And since Geli’s Saturn is squaring Hitler’s Moon too it was hard for them to communicate on an inner level, to exchange feelings and achieve a proximity within their souls, to manifest tenderness to each other etc. Thus, it would be a lot easier for them to resort into raw sexual intercourses…

A strong sexual connotation is ensued too in this relationship by the fact that both their Mars’s are forming aspects with their respective Moons. It was hard for them to feel at ease. A spirit of intensity and unrest was constantly hovering over them and they were very easily and without an apparent reason upsetting each other! They were both feeling that the other member was excessively cruel and aggressive, an insensitive person that was repeatedly hurting their feelings…

But apart these pivotal synastric configurations there is something else that made Geli so important to Hitler: the two specific zodiacal signs her Luminaries are in (her Sun in Gemini and her Moon in Leo). You see Hitler was very much attached to his mother, whose death never managed to overcome. His mother was a Leo with a Gemini Moon (her Sun-Moon zodiacal combination was the reverse of Geli’s!). So definitely Geli was reminding Hitler something of his mother. That would explain a lot why he was so fond of her. But it doesn’t end here. Hitler’s father was a Gemini with his Moon in Leo. He had the very same Luminaries combination as Geli! The fact is Hitler hated the guts of his father. And that hatred he undoubtedly transferred onto Geli. That would explain why he abused her so much, bringing her to the point of committing suicide (provided she was not murdered, of course…)

What is a patronage made of ? (the Da Vinci’s – Duke’s of Milan Synastry)

(Ludovico Sforza – Duke of Milan)

To my knowledge, there has never been a thorough study revealing the extent to whichthe incidental likings or aversions of the people involved in any situation ultimately determine the course of that situation – and the course of the events in general, both in our every day lives and in historical occurrences. I suspect that such a factor is considerably larger than we generally believe. Often it is due to some particular sympathy flaring among the participants of an x situation that turn i.e. a job interview into a cosy chat, that bring forth unexpectedly profitable deals, collaborations and enterprises! Thus,the quality of the human interactions, the inner “attunement” of the individuals (their “Synastry”, as we call it) is of an uttermost importance and it lies at the foundations of many human accomplishments!

I was pondering on this while I was studying the Synastry of the “Renaissance man par excellence” Leonardo Da Vinci and his major patron: the Duke of Milan Ludovico Sforza! I was wondering what was the astrological element that prompted Sforza to offer his generous and multi-annual patronage to Da Vinci (who had been seeking such a patronage out of many Italian lords all over Italy but mostly he was denied it)!

 

As you may see above, the horoscope of Ludovico Sforza has been preserved (this square type of horoscopes was in vogue till a couple of centuries ago). Sforza was born on the 3rd of August 1452 (Julian calendar). Thus, the Duke was a Leo Sun with his Moon in Pisces (by the way, he has the same “Luminaries” combination as  actor Robert De Niro – and judging by the Duke’s portrait they look alike!). His Ascendant is in Aquarius. You may see below the modern counterpart of his Renaissance chart:

We know as well Leonardo’s Da Vinci natal chart (his grand-father had noted the exact date and time of his birth and fortunately that specific note has been preserved). Da Vinci was a Taurus Sun and he had his Moon in the sign of Pisces (isn’t this an artist’s combination or what?). His Ascendant was in Sagittarius. You may see Leonardo’s chart below:

Da Vinci was born in a village near Florence and he lived in this illustrious city till his thirties (he was apprenticed to Verrocchio and received some form of patronage out of the tycoon Medici family). Things though were turning against the Medici’s and him personally (he was accused of sodomy) and thus in 1482 he moved to Milan, where he was very well  received by the Duke of the city Ludovico Sforza. The Duke was a Leo and Da Vinci a Taurus. Their solar signs are considered discordant (actually, they are discordant!). How comes then they matched so well (Da Vinci stayed at the Sforza’s court for 17 whole years)? Well, Synastry is much deeper than we think and it somehow moves in mysterious ways!

The Duke of Milan was a Leo. But Da Vinci was in a certain sense a Leo too! You see, he had his Sun in his Fifth House – and that is a potent domification, since the Sun is the ruler of the Fifth House! So definitely there was a common thread connecting them (Leonardo was orchestrating i.e. for the Duke  spectacular wedding ceremonies and other extravagant social events and happenings – putting on stage i.e mechanical “knights” moving on their own etc.)! Not to mention the fact that in their Synastry Leonardo’s Sun is “falling” in Sforza’s Second House (as you can see below). Thus,Leonardo was somehow “Taureanizing” the Duke of Milan – meaning that through their interaction Leonardo was activating in the Duke certain Taurean properties, turning largely Sforza (especially when Leonardo was dealing with him face to face) into the very sign he was!

Actually, we are dealing here with what I call  “latent” synastric elements  (you may see my relative “Sasstrology” article here ). A “latent” synastric element is a pivotal element in a Synastry but it is somehow “hidden”. Thus it is not easily perceived as a pivotal synastric element unless we somehow “extrapolate” it as such by spotting certain composite inter-connections within the charts of the two individuals and within their own Synastry!

Furthermore, an extremely unifying factor is stemming out of their Moons! They both had their Moon in the sign of Pisces (meaning that their “inner worlds” were largely composed of the same stuff and that they could instinctively connect and “feel” each other!).

And now the two “uber” beneficent / patronage kind of factors in this Synastry! First, the Duke’s Jupiter is standing exactly over Leonardo’s Moon (the Duke’s Jupiter is in the 3rd degree of Pisces and is synastrically forming a PARTILE conjunction to Leonardo’s Moon, in the 3rd degree of Pisces!) And second, the Duke’s Sun is “falling” in Leonardo’s Ninth House (this is an archetypal benefactor’s / “godfather’s” domification)! There are some other minor beneficent configurations too but we might as well rest our case here…
