Super-Hot & Brave Scorpio Hero

Claus Von Stauffenberg

The Tom Cruise movie of Valkyrie is, as I am sure you know, based on the German aristocrat Claus Von Stauffenberg, who was executed for conspiring to assasinate Hitler. He was amazingly brave & committed + apparently highly charismatic…I got a huge crush on him when studying the story at high school. This is from the Wiki…

“…Stauffenberg was aware that by German law he was about to commit high treason. He openly told young conspirator Axel von dem Bussche late 1943: “Gehen wir in medias res, ich betreibe mit allen mir zur Verfügung stehenden Mitteln den Hochverrat…” (“Let’s be blunt, I am committing high treason with all my might and means….”).[12] He justified his project to Bussche by reference to the right under natural law (“Naturrecht”) to defend millions of people’s lives from the criminal aggressions of Hitler (“Nothilfe”).

From the beginning of September 1943 until 21 July 1944, Claus von Stauffenberg was the driving force behind the plot. His resolve, his organizational abilities, and his radical revolutionary approach put an end to inactivity caused by doubts and long discussions on hitherto military virtues made obsolete or not by Hitler’s behavior….”

His chart is fascinating.

He is a Scorpio with his Sun conjunct Mercury trined by Saturn in Pisces and squared by Mars in idealistic Aquarius. Saturn squares Pluto in Gemini which trines the Mars.

And – get this O Astro-Fiends – Von Stauffenberg had Uranus conjunct the South Node and Neptune conjunct the North Node, in Cancer. Even when it became apparent that the plot would likely fail and all involved be executed, he cared desperately that the world know not all Germans supported the Nazi regime. He loved his mother country.

    • yes yes I thought that too – had to read both to see if they were deliberately juxtaposed.

  1. He does have those dreamy Scorpio eyes!

    What I find so interesting about this is his North Node and Neptune in Cancer–an idealization of his purpose to the point that he could become a public martyr. Neptune is where we look for the divine and with that NNode, it may have felt to him as if he had a divine purpose to carry out his plot–a divine right.

    He could also have been a famous novelist but in the stories he told we would have seen this theme of idealized vision of ‘Mother Land’ Cancer meeting the sudden and immovable wall of Capricorn S Node and rebellious Uranus.

    The nodes are an axis that need balancing, especially when one end is ruled by the extreme nature of his Saturn with its aspect to Mars and Pluto–a powerhouse engine that could derail. But it gets even more tricky. His North Node was ruled by the Moon and his South Node by Saturn and these two planets where conjunct for most of the day. I get the image of tension as tight as a piano wire between his rebel nature and the desire for immersion in a cause. Because the nodal rulers were conjunct, he had less chance for objectivity and more for obsession.

    I’ll have to watch the movie to see how he is portrayed.

    Note the final Nodal theme: Count Von Stauffenberg was shot just before 1am on the 21st of July 1944–on the Solar Eclipse in Cancer (Sun, Moon and North Node conjunct)–just before his exact Nodal Return.

    I think he would have felt that he gave his life to a ‘right cause’ and would have done it all over again. No regrets.

  2. Oha, thanks Kim for that Astro lesson. Fascinating. Neptune is our Divine, huh.
    I use this word fairly frequently and it has a positive resonance within the body.

    My Neptune is in Libra (and Moon) so this explains my use of positive words (when bodyworking). To create balance.
    My first experiment, eons ago, was to ask the person to close their eyes. Then see the word……….insert whatever uplifting word you choose or what they want more of……then tell them to see it in CAPITALS….then imprint on their forehead in their minds’ eye, then dynamically breathe into their bodies. The cells listen to you, i say or is it the subconscious you can direct?

    • I like that technique, Pegasus.

      A belief is a simply a thought we keep thinking. Your visualisation allows for a new thought to ‘override’ the old one, creating new experiences and healing. Excellent! :)

  3. hmmm Tom as valkyrie man might be “too small” for his pedigree family’s taste:

    I take that to read Cruise cannot pull off scorp intensity, ball of atrophied plasticine fluff that he is. But i will reserve judgement.

    Interesting that it was all about the “mother country” for Von Stauffenberg (and that cancerian energy in his chart). What’s the sign of Germany (or prussia, more’s the point)?
