The transits at the time Hitler’s mother died are transit Jupiter conjunct natal Saturn. Both Saturn and Jupiter can be active at the point of death. The 10th house rules the mother, boss, or guardian. It also identifies the authority we have over others. The 10th house reveals the professional career and when we have mastered a specific subject.
The death of Hitler’s mother is significant because it is a pivotal turning point in his life when he was released from the responsibilities of caring for her. He was then free to move to Vienna where he experienced his first traumatic failures, and where he was introduced to political life and antisemitism.
Transit Neptune, shown by the broken red line, will eventually station to go direct, and slowly move into a square with natal Uranus. Although Hitler does not have the planets of Significance, Uranus and Neptune, in a major aspect in his natal chart, the coming transiting square finally encourages him to set his sights on broader horizons. Natal Uranus on the Ascendant, by itself as a Rising High Focus planet, catapults his freewheeling, experimentative propensities to maximum potential.
Hitler’s extraordinary personal, persuasive powers are brought into function through his intense grasp of the use of words in oratory. His animated gestures are a manifestation of the combined “influence” of the natal Moon-Jupiter trine Mars. His unusual and disturbing charm of personality coupled with his fluent use of the German language gives testimony to his impact on others that the multiple conjunctions promise. Words and ideas and their use are a third house matter. The leader/guru, Jupiter, conjunct the natal Moon facilitates his outreach to the public. He personified the masses’ need for leadership. In the end, all his intentions backfired as a result of the Significant planets not in a major aspect. Had Uranus and Neptune been in one of the five major aspects it would have given him a more comprehensive vision with a grasp on grander possibilities. There also is a lack of a major aspect between the personal pair of Jupiter and Saturn. This reveals his lack of moral conscience.
The Moon/Jupiter conjunction in the 3rd house makes for wide public approval through the power of speech and propaganda. Through the manipulation of words (3rd house), Hitler was able to gain the intense public response and support that put him in power.
