Marc Edmund Jones has him incorrectly listed as Louis duHohle born on January 25, 1903 at 7:45 PM no place.  Astro.com gets the win here, with a January 24, 1903 in Berlin Germany.  De Wohl, as an astrologer, states that his birthtime is 15:30.  To be honest, we disagree with his time and would move it Cancer 23.  Nothing really changes, just the ascendant, so it seems like a quibble, but nonetheless that is our take : 3:32 PM.

Herr De Wohl was vehemently anti-Nazi and Hitler and used his connections during World War II to uncover information from fellow astrologer  Karl Ernst Krafft, who worked for Dr Goebbels.

De Wohl’s chart is a Bucket with a Mars in the fourth house handle.  Mars isn’t the most popular planet for being in Cancer, he tends to make a ruckus, but in De Wohl’s case his ruckus was against a dictator and mass murderer so it works.   His Pluto in the twelfth opposite his Uranus opposite Neptune can cause him to flee (Uranus in Sagittarius) from his native land because of religious disagreements — Pluto opposite his Moon also in Sagittarius agrees that his strong self-will chafes against regimented secular authority.

He was a prolific Catholic author though looking at this chart only Jupiter semisextile his midheaven in Pisces supports this.  It would seem be  late calling once he found peace (Jupiter sextile Uranus) and could express himself freely.

His autobiography is here.  It is worth the time to read and is quite contrary to the Wikipedia article.

The following movie is De Wohl’s adaptation of his own book on Saint Francis Assisi for whom the current Pope is named.  It is directed by Michael Curtiz, well known for his earlier Errol Flynn swashbucklers and in glorious colour.
