Marc Jones has Karl Marx with a 1:30 am birth time. This gives the German political philosopher 10 Aquarius as his ascendant — [HS] “artisan in mosaic glass” the call for careful and sophisticated consideration of subtle distinctions before the execution of one’s great work.” It gets the keyword of “Planning” according to McClung as the key is keeping the end in mind.
Liz Greene in her “The Outer Planets & their Cycles” states Scotsman Maurice Wemyss and his “Famous Nativities” written in 1930 does not agree and gives a 2 am time. Both astrologers have the same town.
With a 2 am birth time, Marx’s ascendant changes to 23 Aquarius, [HS] “the Koran upraised” a symbol of faith in the supremacy of faith itself and in all things of this world.” Keyword is Justification with the idea of an unqualified vindication of a nature thoroughly rectified.
In both cases the North Node is Taurus: Jones its in the 3rd house and for Weymss in the 2nd.
James Braha says that the second suggests “a past life, where the person was preoccupied with the profundity of life, mysticism, spiritual development, and helping others find their values and self-worth.In this carnation he should focus on steady and stable income & acknowledge his own value system.”
Bernice Grebner says the “North Node in the 3rd makes it difficult for the person to express his emotions, as he is too caught up in his work and his own world. He needs to be realistic and separate fact from his fancies.” For the record, Liz Greene uses the Wemyss chart in her writing; YMMV.
