MODERN GREECE’S NATIONAL HOROSCOPE

As we know, not only the individuals but the countries too have a zodiacal sign. Everything born in a particular moment in time bears the quality of that moment. Thus, by knowing the date and time of birth of a country we can determine its natal chart – provided of course we can identify the country’s exact moment of birth! Because, contrary to a human being – the birth of which is evident to the people around it – the countries may have many and different kinds of “births”, some of which are not so evident. Take Greece for example. When was this ancient country really “born”? This turns to be a rather complicated issue!

The (erected by Cardanus) horoscope of the top Byzantine/ Renaissance astrologer Trapezuntius!  

A leading figure of the Byzantine and Renaissance Astrology – a figure that directly and indirectly influenced many European astrologers – is George of Trebizond (or George Trapezuntios)! He was born in 1396 in the island of Crete. His family originated from Trebizond in Pontus (now Trabzon in Turkey but back then a major Greek-Byzantine city and an important astronomical and astrological center). Trapezuntius was a true cultured Astrologer (we might call him today an “omniscient” as he was an astronomer, a mathematician, a translator, orator, philosopher, physician etc.).
