Roman Astrology

Post by scorpio » Tue Jun 24, 2008 9:51 pm

The first (and arguably) the greatest Roman Emperor, Augustus, supposedly published his natal chart (Suet. Aug. 94.12). We no longer have access to this chart. However, according to the Julian Calendar, he was born just before dawn at the Equinox on the 22nd of the 9th Month, 63BC. Jupiter was supposedly in exaltation in his birth chart. Suetonius says he was born on the Kalends of October 63BC. This works out in modern calendar times as Sun in Libra and Libra Rising (ref: Tamsyn Barton, “Augustus and Capricorn; Astrological Polyvalency and Imperial Rhetoric” in Journal of Roman Studies, Vol. 85, 1995. pp. 33-51).

Augustus was great because he built so much and was a great lawmaker. He was one of the few people who managed to keep peace in the Roman Empire for most of his reign. He shows, according to the ancient sources, elements of emotionality when he’s faced with family issues and the loss of prestige of the Imperium. He was forced to exile his beloved and only daughter, Julia, to an extremely barren island. He made laws to uphold traditional Roman family values to the extent of allocating monies from the treasury to married couples who had two or more children . The fact that this did not increase the Roman population may or may not be relevant to his chart. While his arch nemesis was always Cleopatra and the Egyptians, his enemy Mark Anthony was hand in glove with Cleopatra and yet, he defeated them both at the battle of Actium. Even after he had successfully accomplished this he nonetheless banned the worship of the Egyptian Goddess Isis.

Does anyone have any ideas on his chart ? :?

Astrology came in Rome after some strong resistance and disdain. Astrology mingles with the culture of Rome as a result of the conquests that were made outside Rome. The most important conquest that led to the proper development of Astrology was the conquest in Greece.It contains the name of Roman Zodiac sign along with the element name, the ruling planet, the birth stone the lucky number, the lucky color, the lucky day, the quality, the signs with which the compatibility would be good along with names of the famous personalities sharing the same date of birth and personality traits.

According to Roman astrology the comparison of various Roman gods to different individuals. The working of Roman astrology is somewhat simple. In this form of Astrology a Roman zodiac sign is assigned, which in some way is similar to the western signs. Once the appropriate sign is found then one can construe which Roman god is representative of the person’s personality.Like this they predict the Astrology for persons.

As a person who loves to learn about the Roman Empire, I think it would be interesting if we knew the time of birth of guys like Constantine, Vespasian or others. Forget Barrack Obama or Donald Trump, these are the guys that really shaped the course of history. If anybody has some type of info on other Roman emperors, please share.

It's also common knowledge that the emperor Tiberius barely even left the house without the advice of his astrologer. It's highlighted in "I, Claudius" and especially "The Caesars".

Hi dyzio,

What a fascinating journey that would be, if you have the time to delve into it.
Theoretically it would be possible to find their birth-times ...somewhere.

I imagine that you know that seems to have at least their Solar charts, e.g. ... _the_Great (for whom they have actually given a birth time: 6:38 am !).

Would be very interested in your thoughts on their charts if you would care to share them.
