John Halloran on Hilter and Chaplin

In October, 2017, I started writing a complete set of 480 separate male/female interpretations for all the declination parallel and contraparallel aspects. In doing so, I discovered that both Adolf Hitler and Hermann Goering, his number two, were born with Mars closely parallel Chiron.

Goering was born four years later, in 1893. With Hitler the orb is 05m and with Goering the orb is  07m.  With Chaplin, the orb is much wider -46m. Only 9 other men in my collection of 2,279 famous men with known birth times were born with Mars parallel Chiron within 07m. The difference between these other 9 men and Hitler is that most of them have either no close zodiacal aspects to Chiron or have favorable aspects, compared to Hitler’s challenging aspect of Moon opposite Chiron, with orb of 12m.

Hitler’s right hand man, Hermann Goering had Chiron conjunct Juno, the partnership asteroid, with an orb of 0d 24m, and  close zodiacal aspects to the Moon, Mars, and North Node. At the Nuremberg Trials, Goering “was charming, aloof and confident, and from the start was determined to dominate the other prisoners and make them follow his line of defence.”

Mars parallel Chiron is also a  powerful aspect, but it does not always produce an Adolf Hitler, it can also produce a Simon Cowell, a Harvey Levin, a John McCain (held in Vietnamese capitivity as a prisoner of war) , or a Vincent Price – all people who have confronted the unpleasant or the horrific side of life.

The slow-moving planetary aspects include three planets at 19 degrees – Uranus, the Black Moon Lilith, and cold, distant Eris – in addition to tapping into these outer-planet energies, Chaplin and Hitler also channelled the generational aspect of Neptune conjunct Pluto in Gemini. Both had a close Uranus sesquiquadrate Pluto aspect in their charts, as did Israeli general Moshe Dayan, U.S. senator Robert Byrd (former Grand Wizard of the KKK) Philippines dictator Ferdinand Marcos, and Boston Celtics coach Red Auerbach.

The energies of that minor square aspect manifest as follows:

“This aspect makes you tough and hard. It gives you the ability to withstand hurts or injuries and yet still recover and thrive. You never stop growing. It gives you the technical ability to have power and influence with others.”

Charlie Chaplin’s Little Tramp character achieved worldwide universal familiarity – Chaplin’s Moon on the Ascendant gave him a transpersonal connection to the common man. In 1917, it was reported that nine out of ten men who attended costume parties dressed as the Tramp. Stores carried dolls and merchandise with Chaplin’s likeness.

The appearance of Adolf Hitler was often compared to that of Charlie Chaplin. They both exemplified an extreme rags to riches story and in 1940, Chaplin portrayed Hitler  in The Great Dictator – a talkie that was at the time universally panned.

. The connection between them is not just some weird or accidental coincidence but as   Swiss psychoanalyst Carl Jung commented on synchronicity, it was a link that exists because resonates with deep meaning and significance. Outer events can be signs that point to underlying connections and a deeper reality.

Whereas Chaplin’s strongest planet was the Moon, the planet of emotions, Adolf Hitler’s strongest planets was the Sun, the planet of will.  Hilter also scored high with the newly discovered Eris, the planet of discord.  Deep stuff indeed.
