A few thoughts on Hans Kayser's birth horoscope
The following are a few remarks on Hans Kayser's character and destiny, based on his birth horoscope.
I must start with one remark: the ways in which a person will develop
cannot be seen from his birth horoscope. Genius, therefore, is not
Hans Kayser was born with Aquarius ascending, which is rare. This shows
that he will be a very special, unusual person who will not allow
himself to be pigeonholed. He will forge his own unconventional path.
He will lead his life independent from dogma, following his own ideas.
He may also be stubborn.
His life will be full of surprises (welcome or unwelcome). The nearest
planet to the ascendant is Venus (♀), symbol of beauty, balance, and
harmony, and also a symbol of art. These themes will accompany him
throughout his life, not only in his own experience, but also in their
spiritual realization (Venus is in the spiritual water sign of
The sun in Aries ( in ) and the moon in another fire sign (
= Sagittarius) indicate an enthusiastic, spontaneous, highly active,
but also aggressive nature. Indecision and faltering are unknown to
him. The dark side of this may be impatience and impulsiveness.
His way, or goal, will lead from learning ( = Gemini) to the perceiving and understanding of connections (
= Sagittarius). He will desire to know what is at the innermost heart
of the universe. Philosophy, religion, and mysticism are areas of
interest. Through this, he will create his own philosophy. Spiritual
freedom and independence are enormously important to him (AC in
Aquarius, MC in Sagittarius).
Now, looking at his parental house, we can assume that he was born into a stimulating, interesting milieu (IC in Gemini ).
One or more family members (mother, father, or close relatives) will
probably play a highly central role in the path of his life (lunar node
at IC). Later, some encounters (possibly karmic in nature) will be of immense significance to his development (lunar node axis at IC-MC).
The connection between the two slowly moving planets Neptune () and Pluto ()
at IC indicate that Hans Kayser will also have to overcome many
difficulties that will shake him to the core: loss of loved ones
(family), dilemmas, and blows from fate against which he can do nothing.
