French Presidential Election: part 1

Elections présidentielles 2017 France-1

The French will go to the polls in April and May this year to choose the new president. Since France is one the major countries in the EU, the new president will definitely make a difference in the political scenario of the next years in Europe and probably also in the rest of the world. After the Brexit consultation which brought the UK on the road to leave the EU, the mounting dissatisfaction with the European policy in France can put in power an eurosceptic president.

In this article we will analyze the genitures of the five candidates in order to see who has the most significators of eminence and dignity. In a next article we will check the solar revolutions, the protections and the directions for each candidate in order to have a picture of the possible pool outcome.

Significators of Eminence

Ptolemy says:

It will be needful to determine the questions of dignity and happiness resulting therefrom from the position of the luminaries and the familiarity to them of their attendant planets. For if both the luminaries are in masculine signs and either both of them, or even one of the two, angular, and particularly if the luminary of the sect is also attended by the five planets, matutine to the sun and vespertine to the moon, the children will be kings. And if the attendant planets are either themselves angular or bear an aspect to the superior angle, the children born will continue to be great, powerful, and world-rulers, and they will be even more fortunate if the attendant planets are in dexter aspect to the superior angles. But if, while the others are in this position, the sun alone is in a masculine sign, and the moon is in a feminine one, and one of the luminaries is angular, they will be merely generals, with power of life and death. If, however, besides this the attendant planets are neither angular nor witnessing to the angles, they will be merely great and will enjoy partial dignities, those which involve the wearing of chaplets, or those of superintendence or of military command, and not those of first rank. But if the luminaries are not angular, and most of the attendant planets are either angular or in aspect with the angles, they will not attain the more conspicuous honours but rather civil leadership and moderate advancement in their careers. If, however, the attendant planets are not associated with the angles, they are rendered obscure in their actions and without preferment, and they are entirely humble and miserable in their fortunes when neither of the luminaries is angular, or in a masculine sign, or attended by the beneficent planets. The general outline, then, of the investigation before us involves a gradation of dignities of this sort. Since there are very many conditions intermediate between these grades, one must estimate them from the specific qualities of the luminaries themselves, and the particular variations in the manner in which they are attended, and the government of the attendance. For if their attendance consists of planets of the same sect, or of the beneficent planets, greater independence and security will attend the dignities; but if it involves the opposite sect, or the maleficent planets, there will be dependency and less security. The kind of future honour is to be divined from the quality of the attending planets; for if Saturn governs the attendance, he brings about power based on wealth and the amassing of riches, but Jupiter or Venus that which rests upon favours, gifts, honours, and magnanimity; Mars brings power founded on generalships, victories, and the fears of subordinates, and Mercury that which depends upon intelligence, education, and the care and management of affairs.

As we see front the passage above, Ptolemy assigns the rank of the native in decreasing order from the most dignity in the following manner:

1
  • Both luminaries in masculine sign
  • both or one angular
  • one or both luminaries have doryphory
  • doriphories angular or in aspect to MC
2
  • Both luminaries in masculine sign
  • both or one angular
  • one or both luminaries have doryphory
3
  • Sun in a masculine sign, Moon in a feminine sign
  • one angular
  • one or both luminaries have doryphory
  • doriphories angular or in aspect to MC
4
  • both luminaries or one angular
  • one or both luminaries have doryphory
5
  • no luminary angular
  • one or both luminaries have doryphory
  • most of doriphories angular or in aspect to MC
6
  • no luminary angular
  • luminary of the sect has doryphory
7
  • no luminary angular
  • no doryphory

Candidates

In the table below for each candidate are displayed the main significators, which are the ptolemaic significator of eminence and secondary significators according to Valens, Rhetorius and Porphyry.

The doryphory to the Sun is an oriental planets which is in aspect with the Sun; the doryphory to the Moon is a planet which the Moon is applying to.

Rex and Miles are, according to Cielo e Terra and Gerolamo Vitali, are respectively the lord of the 5 hylegiacal place (Sun, Moon, Ascendent, Tyche, Prenatal Syzygy), and the  most dignified planet in the char both by essential and accidental dignities.

Candidates in order of Eminence

Marine Le Pen

Marin Le Pen
Marine Le  Pen has the light in sect, the  Sun, angular in X, in Leo, a masculine sign, and Saturn is a doryphory of the Sun since Saturn is oriental, diurnal and he trines the Sun and has ruleship over the Sun by term. Saturn, the doryphory, is angular. So the geniture falls into category 3. Saturn is in his term but he is in fall in Aries. Saturn is doing the first station, so he is quite strong. Saturn has familiarities by trine with the Moon, which is concord with diurnal sect of Saturn since she is waxing; he has familiarity by trine with Jupiter and Venus, which doing the evening heliacal rising and by square in mundo with Mars which is his lord by domicile . Saturn is Miles, that is the most dignified planet in the chart. So Saturn is  strong signifier of eminence. Moreover we see that three star, the Sun, Mercury and Mars are in the X place.

 

Jean-Luc Melenchon

Jean-Luc Melenchon
Jean-Luc Melenchon has the light out of sect, the  Moon, angular in VII in Pisces, a feminine sign and Mars is a doryphory of the Moon since the Moon is applying to him and Mars has ruleship over the Moon by term and the Moon is waning. Mars, the doryphory, is nor angular neither he aspects the MC. Mars is nocturnal and oriental. So the geniture falls into category 4. Moreover Mars is peregrine in sextile with the Horoscope and Saturn which is on the oriental horizon. Saturn is in domicile in Libra is opposing the Moon which is on the occidental horizon. Mars is Rex, Saturn is Miles. Tyche is in Aries in square with her lord Mars. This geniture is far less eminent than Le Pen’s geniture.

 

Benoit Hamon

Benoit Hamon

Benoit Hamon has no angular light. Saturn is doryphory to the the light of time, the Sun, since Saturn is oriental, diurnal and squares the Sun. This doryphory is weak since Saturn has no ruleship over the Sun. Saturn is angular in the X. The geniture falls into category 5. Saturn is in fall in Aries and he is opposed in mundo by his lord Mars in Libra. Saturn is also in trine with Jupiter and Venus which is the almuten of the X. Saturn is Miles. The MC is in trine with his lord Jupiter. Some fixed star are notable: Betelgeuse  and Pollux at the horoscope; Sirius with Jupiter; Spica with Mars. I think that this geniture is quite close to the Melenchon’s geniture about eminence.

 

Francois Fillon

Francois FillonFrancois Fillon has no angular light. Mars and Jupiter are doryphory to the light of time, the Moon, since the Moon is applying to Mars and Jupiter and Mars has ruleship over the Moon by triplicity and Jupiter by domicile. Mars is nocturnal and oriental; the Moon is waning. Jupiter is diurnal and occidental in fall in Gemini so Jupiter is not in a very good condition as bodyguard; also is not of the same sect of the Moon.The geniture falls into category 6. Mars is peregrine and he is in opposition to Jupiter, his lord by domicile and triplicity. Mars is also in square in mundo with Venus, her lord by terms. Moreover is in square with the Sun.  The MC is in trine with Venus, Saturn and the Sun. Venus is doing the evening heliacal rising and is also Rex and Milex with the participation of Jupiter. Bellatrix is with Jupiter. Also this geniture is not so distant from the two previous genitures.

 

Emmanuel Macron

Emmanuel Macron Emmanuel Macron has no angular light and the lights have not doryphory. The geniture falls into category 7. The almuten of the X, Mars, is angular in the VII in trine with Venus and the Moon.  The Moon in exaltation in Taurus in the acquisitive place. This geniture doesn’t show significative marks of eminence.

 

 

Final Considerations

Marine Le Pen’s geniture is the most dignified among the candidates to the French Presidential Election. Emmanuel Macron who is credited for passing the first round has definitely the less dignified geniture. The other three candidate are in the middle between those two extremes, close to each others.

The jester warrior

dario-fo

In my whole life I have never written anything only for fun. I always tried to put in my lyrics a crack able to break the certainties, to doubt the opinions, to arouse indignation, to open the minds. Everything else, the beauty for the beauty, I do not care. The World According to Fo, Dario Fo

The Man, the Actor

DarioFo.png

Dario Fo was born in Sangiano, near the Maggiore Lake, in Lombardy on the 3th of March 1926 at 12,25 according to the birth certificate. Since the birth registration was not very accurate in the first half of the twentieth century, I have opted to rectify the time by a method taught by ‘Cielo e Terra’. That method, called Isaritmia, is a sort of a more sophisticated version of the Ptolemaic animodar. The Isaritmia is defined as the mathematical correspondence between the  lord of the preceding syzygy and the rising angle or the culminating angle when the position of the planet, lord of the preceding syzygy, in the house where it is, measured in temporal hours, is equal to the position of the angle in the sign where is located, measured in ascensional times. I don’t want to go into details about this technique, which is not very easy to understand and calculate. Mars was the Lord of the syzygy preceding the Fo’s birth because in that syzygy Mars was rising at the horoscope and the luminaries where in Pisces in the triplicity and bounds of Mars. We can see more or less in the rectified chart above that Mars is away from the cusp of the VII house as the cusp of the MC from the beginning of Aries.

The Luminaries in his geniture are quite powerful. The Sun is exalted in Aries at the MC. The Moon is in Leo in the I house, an angular place. The Moon is moving away from the trine of the Sun and applying to Mercury in his bounds at the MC. Lets note that Mars is angular and squares the Sun both in mundo and the zodiac. Since Mars is oriental and lord of the Sun, Mars is doryphoros to the Sun. Those are sign of great dignity of the native and of a distinguished person as Ptolomy says in Tetrabiblos, Book IV, Ch.3, ‘Of the Fortune of Dignity’:

It will be needful to determine the questions of dignity and happiness resulting therefrom from the position of the luminaries and the familiarity to them of their attendant planets. For if both the luminaries are in masculine signs and either both of them, or even one of the two, angular, and particularly if the luminary of the sect is also attended by the five planets, matutine to the sun and vespertine to the moon, the children will be kings. And if the attendant planets are either themselves angular or bear an aspect to the superior angle, the children born will continue to be great, powerful, and world-rulers,and they will be even more fortunate if the attendant planets are in dexter aspect to the superior angles. But if, while the others are in this position, the sun alone is in a masculine sign, and the moon is in a feminine one, and one of the luminaries is angular, they will be merely generals, with power of life and death. If, however, besides this the attendant planets are neither angular nor witnessing to the angles, they will be merely great and will enjoy partial dignities, those which involve the wearing of chaplets, or those of superintendence or of military command, and not those of first rank. But if the luminaries are not angular, and most of the attendant planets are either angular or in aspect with the angles, they will not attain the more conspicuous honours but rather civil leadership and moderate advancement in their careers. If, however, the attendant planets are not associated with the angles, they are rendered obscure in their actions and without preferment, and they are entirely humble and miserable in their fortunes when neither of the luminaries is angular, or in a masculine sign, or attended by the beneficent planets.

Here both luminaries are angular, Mars is doryphoros to the light in sect, the Sun and moreover Mars is angular. Also Jupiter is doryphoros to the Sun. Lets note the the star Sirius, the brightest star in the sky, of nature of Jupiter and Mars, is with the Moon. Moreover Mars is also the Lord of the Lot of Fortune.
Dario Fo  won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1997. In his time he was “arguably the most widely performed contemporary playwright in world theatre” says Tony Mitchell in his book ‘Dario Fo: People’s Court Jester’.

Lords of Activity are Mercury and Mars. Mercury is at the MC and Mars, the Lord of both the MC and Mercury, squares them from the occidental horizon. Lets note that Jupiter and Venus, conjuncted in Aquarius, are in sextile with Mercury. Mercury is significator of professions involving communication and writing. The benefic Jupiter and Venus produce a profession concerning art and show and give grace and success. Mars adds sharp comic and bitter satire to his plays and acting. His plays are famous for putting in the pillory the powerful and showing the real face, both brutal and absurd, of the power. The Swedish Academy awarded Fo as a writer “who emulates the jesters of the Middle Ages in scourging authority and upholding the dignity of the downtrodden”

Milestones in his life

Marriage

Dario Fo married Franca Rame, a theater actress, on 24 June 1954. Their professional and conjugal relationship lasted 59 years till she died in 2013.

Profection

The Sun is in the XII, cadent and he is in opposition to the Moon. Venus the lord of the horoscope is in exaltation in Pisces but she is in opposition to the Moom and Jupiter in Virgo. Saturn, the Lord of the year, is with the malefic star Aculeus Scorpionis.

Death-SolarReturn.png

Death-Direction.png

The Sun is the apheta since is the luminary of the time and he is at the MC in the nativity. Ptolemy in Tetrabiblos Book III, Chap. 10, On the length of life, says:

When the prorogator has been distinguished, we must still further adopt two methods of prorogation. The one, that which follows the order of the following signs, must be used only in the case of what is called the projection of rays, when the prorogator is in the orient, that is, between mid‑heaven and the horoscope. We must use not only the method that follows the order of following signs, but also that which follows the order of leading signs, in the so‑called horimaea, when the prorogator is in places that decline from mid‑heaven.
This being the case, the destructive degrees in the prorogation that follows the order of leading signs are only the degree of the western horizon, because it causes the lord of life to vanish

We see here that Sun, the apheta, arrives by direction to the occident, determining the end of his life.
Moreover Mars, the out-of-sect malefic, is with the Part of Fortune, but Mars is the lord of the Part of Fortune and therefore cannot really harm. The Lot of Sinos, or Illness, is with Saturn.

Your eyes, your eyes

Bowie

 

At the centre of it all, at the centre of it all Your eyes, your eyes  Blackstar

 

 

 

 

David Bowie, one of the most important artist of the 21th century, has passed away after having left a non-fading footprint on planet earth.

 

The birth of the White Duke

David Bowie.png

In Bowie’s geniture two planet are very prominent: Saturn and Venus. Venus is exactly culminating and Saturn is on the occidental horizon. Those two planets are significators of important areas of life.

Saturn is the Lord of the Ascendent, is retrograde, in exile in Leo but in-sect and angular. Saturn receives the bodily application of the Moon.

Venus is angular, on the MC, out-of-sect, oriental matutine, between the second station and the mean motion. The Moon is defluxing from Venus.

Since Saturn is Lord of the Ascendent, in aspect with it and the Moon is applying to Saturn, Saturn is the Lord of the Temperament. Also Venus contributes because, even if it has no dignity over the Ascendent and the Moon, it aspects both of them from the MC. Saturn is dry and more temperate than cold; Venus is temperate and wet. Bowie’s slim and slender shape is definitely under the Saturn influence but Venus adds grace and charm.

Saturn is the Lord of the Soul because it is in conjunction with the Moon and domicile lord of Mercury. Since Venus is triplicity ruler of Mercury, it is making a sextile in mundo with Mercury and the Moon is applying to Venus also Venus influences Bowie’s soul.

Venus is Lord of Activity, being the only fast planet visible and at the MC.

Jupiter is oriental in sextile with the Sun in the zodiac and squares in mundo the diurnal luminary doing a epidekateia. So the Sun receives the doryphory of Jupiter, though Jupiter has no dignity in the place of the Sun.

Dorotheus says:

If Jupiter is overeminent, that is, casts a right ray, the native and his father will be noble and will enjoy a good standing with many benefits, honors and relations with the rulers, and they will have power over many men.

The absence of rulership over the Sun by Jupiter means that the doryphory is concerning more the native than his father.

Also Venus is doryphoros to the Sun, since the Sun is in sextile with Venus and Venus is angular and ruler of the Sun by triplicity and terms. Though this is an out-of sect doryphory and a quite weak one because the sextile is at the boundary of the vis luminis of the Sun.

At the horoscope the stars which are in rictus Capricorni, the Capricorn’s muzzle, are rising. Those stars belongs to the passionate stars about which the anonymous says:

When these places are rising or setting, the natives are pushed to act immorally not only with women but also with boys and to take delight in the pleasures against nature

And furthermore:

If that happens manifestly or covertly, it is indicated by the rising  or setting of the planets that produce these passions, I mean Venus or Mars or Venus and Saturn, especially when configured in an adverse way, squaring or opposing each other or when one of them rises or culminates: then the natives will reveal his passions in a public and notorious way. And since unnatural pleasures cannot be enjoyed  without the fulfillment of the desires and the unavoidable fate, so the abandon to the pleasures brings complications, deceptions, losses, enmities and convictions, if the star of Jupiter does not remove partially the damages, witnessing the star of Venus.

Venus is squared in mundo by Saturn since they are both angular and Venus culminates, so Bowie’s passion will be notorious and public. Jupiter is in parallel of declination with Venus and it is also the domicile lord of Venus so those passions don’t trouble him.

The birth of a Black Star

Moon is the apheta and Saturn is the alchocoden. Saturn angular gives its greater years: 57 years. Only Venus is in aspect with Saturn. Since Venus is a benefic, angular and trines Saturn so it gives its lesser years and such months as the middle years of Venus: 8 years and 45 months. In total: 68 years and 9 months.

Around the Bowie’s death the Ascendent arrives to the square of Saturn and Venus to the conjunction of Saturn and the occident.

Bowie's death Direction.png

In the profection the Sun and the Horoscope are in Libra.  The Lord of the Year is Venus and the profected Venus is with Saturn, Moon and descendent of nativity.

Bowie's death Profection.png

In the Solar Return before his death we see Mars the Lord of the Horoscope in the XII place and squaring the Moon of nativity.

Eye Oddity

The odd appearance of Bowie’s eyes were due to a condition called anisocoria.
Anisocoria is characterised by an unequal size in a person’s pupils. In Bowie’s case, his left pupil was permanently dilated, giving illusion of having different coloured eyes because the fixed pupil does not respond to changes in light, while the right pupil does.
The cause of Bowie’s anisocoria was caused by an accident happened in the spring of 1962.
He was injured at school by his friend George Underwood who punched him in the left eye during a fight over a girl. Doctors feared he would become blind in that eye. After a series of operations during a four-month hospitalisation, his doctors determined that the damage could not be fully repaired and Bowie was left with faulty depth perception and a permanently dilated pupil. Despite that incident Underwood and Bowie remained good friends.

In Bowie’s geniture the Moon is in conjunction with Asellus Borealis  and she is close to the nebula Praesaepe  which is with Saturn. The Asellus Borealis and Praesaepe belong to azemena stars (from Arabic az-zamâna, chronic infirmity or illness as well as inseparable disease) which are harmful to the sight. The Moon as Sun is a significator of sight and eyes but in particular of left eye.

Punch in the Eye

In the spring 1962 around the beginning of May there is a direction in mundo of Saturn to the Sun. Sinos, the Lot of chronic illness, in opposition to Mars and Sun in the geniture, is in conjunction with the directed Saturn.Eye injury.png

Moreover in the Solar Return for the 1962 the Moon and Saturn are a the beginning of Aquarius in opposition to Saturn and the Moon of nativity.

Lollipop in the Eye

During a concert in Oslo on 18 June 2004, Bowie was hit in his left eye with a lollipop thrown by a fan. A week later he suffered chest pain while performing at the Hurricane Festival in Germany. Firtly it was thought to be a pinched nerve in his shoulder, but the pain was later diagnosed as an acutely blocked coronary artery. He  was operated on urgently in Hamburg. The remaining 14 dates of the tour were cancelled.

In July 2004 Mars of direction squares in mundo the Sun of nativity. Around the same period we see also helpful aspect as Jupiter to the ascendent which helped Bowie to overcame his illness.

18 June 2004 Direction.png

In the profection the ascendent arrived in Scorpio and so the Lord of the Year is Mars. By direction the Sun is in the terms of Mars and in the solar return the Mars of revolution squares the Sun of nativity.
