“Even broken in spirit as he is, no one can feel more deeply than he does the beauties of nature. The starry sky, the sea, and every sight afforded by these wonderful regions, seems still to have the power of elevating his soul from earth. Such a man has a double existence: he may suffer misery, and be overwhelmed by disappointments; yet, when he has retired into himself, he will be like a celestial spirit that has a halo around him, within whose circle no grief or folly ventures.”
Mary Shelley, Frankenstein
The new Frankenstein movie looks EPIC. And yes, Frankenstein has an official birthday – March 11 1818.
Interestingly, Aaron Eckhart was born just over 150 years later, on March 12. He’s Mars in Aries on his North Node; Mars drives his destiny and presumably him to the gym for one of the most seriously rad bod transformations since Russell Crowe’s Gladiator morph. Mars Note: Russell also has Mars in Aries. It’s the ‘no guts – no glory’ of Mars placements.
Anyway, Frankenstein is a Pisces! Although, in the book of course, the “monster” man is called Adam. Frankenstein is the name of the mad doctor who created him.
Mary Shelley was a insanely ahead-of-her time, multiple Virgo genius – Sun, Mars, Uranus and Mercury all conjunct in Virgo/the Communications sector – who wrote Frankenstein – The Modern Prometheus when she was just 19. She also had Pluto on her Midheaven – her work was dark, transformative, shocking in its day and deeply enduring.
