“Let’s be blunt, I am committing high treason with all my might and means.”
Claus Von Stauffenberg
The Astrology of Claus Von Stauffenberg is a study in courage. In case you have not heard of him, the German army executed him in 1944, for being part of a conspiracy to kill Adolph Hitler. Tom Cruise played him in the 2008 movie Valkyrie. The name of the mission to take out Hitler? Operation Valkyrie. This is evocative because, in Norse mythology, the Valkyrie are a variety of angel who greets slain warriors in the underworld after their death. You get the sense that the people involved in this assassination attempt knew their chances were slender but gave it a crack anyway.
His astrological birth energies are fascinating and reflect his commitment to principle. Von Stauffenberg was a Scorpio with his Sun conjunct Mercury, in sync to Saturn in Pisces. That alone speaks of someone with a serious life mission. Mars in idealistic Aquarius squares his Sun-Mercury – that’s a risk taker, right there. His Saturn? Square Pluto. This is like the Ground Zero aspect for people who end up playing an important role in history or within their culture.
Claus Von Stauffenberg’s Spooky Karmic Moon’s Node Placements
But where the Astrology of Claus Von Stauffenberg becomes downright spooky is in the placement of his karmic Moon’s Nodes. Uranus conjunct the South Node in Capricorn and Neptune conjunct the North Node in Cancer. The Nodes in astrology signify where we came from – our past lives, if you like – and our path or ideal direction in ‘this life’.
He had these immense ideals regarding how the ‘ruling classes’ – of which he was a member – should conduct themselves. And 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 and he died for his ideals.
*The sign of Cancer is associated with the archetype of the Mother, among many other things.
