The Sabian Symbols developed by Dr. Marc Edmund Jones and Elsie Wheeler are a tool for researching the native’s individual character – sometimes revealing itself in literal fashion. The symbol degrees of Hitler’s Moon and Jupiter in the Natal 3rd house reveal his unfettered self-superiority. The Natal Sun in the 7th house is in applying Trine aspect to his Natal Moon and Jupiter. Opportunities (7th) coming to the native are thus funneled with ease into 3rd house uninhibited expression and dominating communication skills. Hitler’s contact with anti-Semitic literature through specific individuals he met along the way buttressed his already latent capacity for an unhealthy sense of superior nationalism.
From the Sabian Symbols in Astrology, Cancer 7, Natal Moon: A veiled prophet of power. The keyword is SUPREMACY. When positive, the degree is unerring insight into the motives of men and a consequent gift for organizing the efforts along any given line of accomplishment, and when negative, inability to establish true values from false.
Capricorn 9, Natal Jupiter: An angel carrying a harp. The keyword is ATTUNEMENT. When positive, the degree is a special gift for inspiring others to accomplishment and for realizing the ultimate dreams of self as a consequence, and when negative, simple fantasy and uncritical self-superiority.
The symbols of the Natal Moon and Jupiter are quite revealing and give support to the words of Erich Ludendorff who had been at Hitler’s side during the Munich Putsch. He wrote to his wartime partner Hindenburg, who was then Chancellor of Germany:
“By appointing Hitler Chancellor of the Reich you have handed over our sacred German Fatherland to one of the greatest demagogues of all time. I prophesy to you this evil man will plunge our Reich into the abyss and will inflict immeasurable woe on our nation. Future generations will curse you in your grave for this action.”
The red line shows the Sun in a lesser degree than the Moon/Jupiter conjunction, and thus the applying planet. Hitler’s Purpose (Keyword for the Sun) is to gather information from others (7th house) and translate it into his own emotional and outspoken communication (3rd house). Taurus 1 degree is A clear mountain stream flows steadily through a rocky defile. With ongoing, uninterrupted support from everyone, Hitler surmounted all obstacles in the path of his war mongering.
Green lines show that the result of emotionally empowered communication has a regenerative effect on others (8th house). Moon/Jupiter are applying with a Trine to the Venus/Mars conjunction, too close to the 8th to ignore its indication of death (8th) to those who oppose him.
The red circle around the High Focus Uranus on the Ascendant points to Hitler’s highly irrational personal prowess, and at the same time indicates his particular brand of genius for inspiring others to support his irrational point of view. Here is the ironic 20 degrees Libra Sabian Symbol of A Jewish rabbi. Uranus is the most prominent and powerful planet in the horoscope. To be contained in that specific degree of all 360 of them can only be described as a twisted and bewildering symbolic cosmic commentary. The “humor” of it can never be justified, as it symbolizes one who was the cause of the destruction of a whole way of life, and genocide of exactly this particular ethnic group. Even more ironic is the original Sabian Symbol that has the Jewish rabbi content with self and world. Hitler was anything but content with self and world.
The original symbol: In a tiny room ridiculously cluttered with manuscripts and books sits a Jewish rabbi at ease with self and world. True, in his early days he would devour reading material. But was he jealous of a world he could not enter, even with rumors of his own Jewish ancestry?
