Astrology is a powerful tool! It enables us to transcend time and space, to penetrate entire centuries or even millennia and go back in the distant past and “experience” from an incredible vicinity some major historical occurrences that have been poorly recorded and thus remain obscure, to revive human stories and situations we know very little about. It enables us to probe and somehow “resuscitate” the lives, the character and the behaviours of historical key-figures and meaningful situations that would be otherwise irrevocably lost in the mist of the time….Thanks to astrology we are able of penetrating even the sanctuary of an intimate relationship (provided we are given the birth data of its members)!
Today (I am writing this article on June 4th, 2015), 107 years ago, the flirtatious but rather inconspicuous girl you see above was born. Her name was Geli Raubal. She was Adolf Hitler’s niece (half-niece actually) and according to many his lover (the prestigious “Astrodienst” for example is explicitly reporting Geli as being “Hitler’s mistress”)!
We do have in our disposition Hitler’s complete horoscope. He was a Taurus, with a Capricornian Moon and his Ascendant in Libra (born on April 20th, 1889, at 6:30 pm in Braunau am Inn in Austria). The first thing that is striking us in the study of their Synastry is that Hitler doesn’t seem to be astrologically compatible with Geli, who was a Gemini with a proud and fearless Leonian Moon (she was born on June 4, 1908 in Linz Austria. No time provided)! On the contrary, there seems to be a huge incompatibility between Hitler’s Taurean stellium and Geli’s Moon in Leo (the Moon being crucial in a woman’s horoscope)! Inexplicably though Hitler seemed to be extremely fond of Geli! For 3 whole years (from 1929 to 1931) he was housing her in his Munich apartment. And he wouldn’t go anywhere (in a cafe, a restaurant etc.) unless he had Geli on his side!
Nobody can say for sure whether the Hitler’s – Geli’s relationship was a sexual one or not. What we definitely know is that it was the most intense relationship in Hitler’s life! And that this relationship was permeated by an extreme possessiveness, especially from Hitler’s part. When Hitler found out that Geli had a fling with his private chauffeur he threatened to shoot him! In 1931 Geli asked Adolf to leave the apartment and go back to Vienna in order to take singing lessons (a Jewish man she was in love with was secretly awaiting her). But Hitler furiously refused and ordered his guards to get tighter on her. On September 18, 1931 Geli was found dead in Hitler’s apartment. Apparently she had committed suicide, shooting herself on her chest with one of Hitler’s pistols. She was 23 years old!
So, what’s the story behind Hitler’s – Geli’s relationship? Because there is something deeper there and that something we have to find out! You see relationships – any kind of them – do not casually “result”. They are dictated by profound needs of ours and they are attuned to often obscure and irrational facets of our souls – facets we are not very much aware of. But Astrology can substantially assist us in this direction! So, let’s take a look at their Synastric bi-wheel (with Hitler’s natal chart in the inner circle and Geli’s in the outer one):
Αs Ι already explained, the two of them do not seem to be particularly compatible – under an astrological point of view. There is however a “latent” synastric element that might create a certain degree of compatibility between them. Hitler’s Moon is located in the restless, youthful and communicative Third House of his chart. This configuration alone – isolated from the rest of the chart – denotes that a Gemini woman could ultimately be the ideal Adolf’s partner (as the Third House is tightly related to the sign of Gemini)!
It also impresses us the fact that both Geli’s Sun and Pluto are falling in Hitler’s Eighth House (while simultaneously her Sun is in a wide conjunction to Hitler’s Pluto)! That’s a very powerful Synastric configuration! Actually, the Eighth House is the BIG MERGER! It does unite and merge two individuals (physically, mentally, psychologically, financially, erotically etc.) to the extent that the two interconnect to a very visceral and profound level, within the deepest reaches of their souls! Under the Eighth House’s spell the partners are somehow “squeezed” the one over the other, till they finally shed the shell of their individuality and merge into a single entity, transforming themselves into – let’s say – the legendary “Androgynous”! And with such a strong Eighth House emphasis some very powerful drives and passions dominate this relationship. Which, unless sexually consumed or somehow “sublimated” might eventually give birth to feelings of mortal hatred and hostility!
Since we don’t know Geli’s time of birth we don’t know too the exact degree her Moon is in. We are absolutely sure though that it is in Leo, around the 13th degree of that sign. Thus, it is probably forming a tight conjunction with Hitler’s Saturn! This means that Geli was experiencing Adolf as a sort of (strict and severe) father figure. On the other hand, Hitler was feeling very complacent having this brilliant and vivacious young woman by his side! The Saturn – Moon conjunction might also mean that he was somehow controlling and limiting her (psychologically, spatially etc), that he was ever trying to discipline her! And since Geli’s Saturn is squaring Hitler’s Moon too it was hard for them to communicate on an inner level, to exchange feelings and achieve a proximity within their souls, to manifest tenderness to each other etc. Thus, it would be a lot easier for them to resort into raw sexual intercourses…
A strong sexual connotation is ensued too in this relationship by the fact that both their Mars’s are forming aspects with their respective Moons. It was hard for them to feel at ease. A spirit of intensity and unrest was constantly hovering over them and they were very easily and without an apparent reason upsetting each other! They were both feeling that the other member was excessively cruel and aggressive, an insensitive person that was repeatedly hurting their feelings…
But apart these pivotal synastric configurations there is something else that made Geli so important to Hitler: the two specific zodiacal signs her Luminaries are in (her Sun in Gemini and her Moon in Leo). You see Hitler was very much attached to his mother, whose death never managed to overcome. His mother was a Leo with a Gemini Moon (her Sun-Moon zodiacal combination was the reverse of Geli’s!). So definitely Geli was reminding Hitler something of his mother. That would explain a lot why he was so fond of her. But it doesn’t end here. Hitler’s father was a Gemini with his Moon in Leo. He had the very same Luminaries combination as Geli! The fact is Hitler hated the guts of his father. And that hatred he undoubtedly transferred onto Geli. That would explain why he abused her so much, bringing her to the point of committing suicide (provided she was not murdered, of course…)
