Listening to the music of Mozart and reading a pile of books
written on this exceptional man it is only natural that I asked
myself what were the astral influences that made him an unparalleled
genius. The horoscope that was available and in which Ascendant is
at the twelfth degree of Virgo (27/1/1756 Salzburg, 13E02, 47N48,
20:00 PM LMT) is, as I think, inaccurate since it does not coincide
with a number of facts known about Mozart. After detailed analyses I
came to the conclusion that Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was born on
27/1/1756 in Salzburg at 22: 07: 35 with
Ascendant at the fifteenth degree of Libra and the Moon at the
nineteenth degree of Sagittarius. In the text below you will find
the details of this rectified chart proving its complete accuracy.
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
- Official data
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, unparalleled genius of music art, remarkable
and exceptional phenomenon in the European music of 18 century was born
in a small Austrian town of Salzburg on 27 January 1756. In his short
life (36) he managed to produce as much as 626 music pieces in almost
all existing music forms at the time.
He was born under Aquarius with stellium of planets in that sign. The
moon was in Sagittarius while ASC was in Libra. First glance at his
chart indicates that he was an artist. Both rulers of his horoscope,
Uranus and Venus are placed at his fifth house, house of creativity and
inventiveness. The Sun and Moon are at the nineteenth degree, the degree
of Libra (art) while Neptune, the planet of endless imagination and
inspiration ruling his Uranus, is at the tenth house the cusp of which
is also placed at the degree of Libra.
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
- Rectified chart
Stellium in Aquarius is produced by Uranus with a
culminating planet which is Mozart’s major signifier and which, by its
position and aspects, largely determined his destiny. Thus, this is a
uranium type of personality, man of a strong will, considerable mental
powers, inexhaustible creativity and inventiveness as well as talents
which did not seem to be of this world - the man of an endless
imagination and intuition, original, independent and of a rebellious
nature. His pronounced humanism, love for a man and incomprehensible
quickness of his mind, life, and work also originate from the influence
of this planet and Aquarius, the fastest sign. However, he was a very
defiant man of fragile health and frayed nerves, impractical to the
utmost, incapable of saving and being rational when it comes to money,
inclined to dissolute and chaotic way of life - all of which are the
influences of Uranus.
The Moon in Sagittarius shows us a straightforward,
serene, dynamic person of a great sensibility and imagination. This
position produces the inclination toward abstract and philosophical way
of thinking and pronounced spirituality and religiosity. Inner
aspiration for constant improvement and broadening of knowledge,
frequent travels abroad and general interest in everything of a foreign
origin are all gifts bestowed by such position of the Moon and the
position of Jupiter at ASC favourably aspecting the Moon. Maybe the
letter that Mozart sent to Padre Martini, a great connoisseur of music
and his teacher in his young days, largely shows the extent of influence
Jupiter had exerted on him: "We are here in this world only to learn
every day with an increasing passion, to get to know one another in our
encounters and to make efforts so that science and art could make the
maximum progress". This is the full symbolic of Moon in Sagittarius in
the third house sextile Jupiter. Moon (intimate story) is in the third
house (way of thinking, correspondence).
The cusp of the third house in Sagittarius (a
foreigner) and the ruler of this house, Jupiter (a spiritual teacher) in
Libra (art, music) show that the letter was sent to a foreigner,
Italian, a spiritual teacher. Its philosophical content is also shown by
the cusp of the third house (a letter) in Sagittarius (philosophy).
ASC is in Libra. This position produced a cheerful,
friendly, charming man with the striking feeling for aesthetics and
beauty, a man who does everything out of love. Since ASC presents the
way in which we express our personality, Mozart expressed his
inventiveness, geniality (Uranus) and spirituality (Jupiter) through art
and music (Libra, Venus). And what is his music like? Many of his pieces
express a wide range of happy, affectionate feelings, subtlety and
grace. Many musicologists describe him as "a lyric genius whose works
express the feeling of harmony and beauty ", Wagner calls him the
"immortal poet of light and love ", and Mozart himself claims :"A true
genius with no heart is absurdity. Neither great intellect or
imagination, nor both of them together compose a genius. Love, love,
love. This is the spirit of a genius ". It is known that love, elegance,
subtlety, grace, concordance, harmony and beauty are symbolised by Libra
and its ruler Venus. Since Mozart’s Libra is at ASC, this is how other
people perceive his work (ASC, the way other people see us). In
addition, since ASC presents the basis of a character, in love (Libra,
Venus) Mozart finds the root (ASC) which makes him genius (Uranus). This
is also supported by Venus, ruler of the Ascendant, in Aquarius
Mozart was the seventh child of Leopold and
Anne Mary Mozart. However, out of six remaining children only
his five years older sister Anna Maria (Nannerl) did not die in
infancy. His father Leopold ( born in Augzburg in 1719) was a
musician. As an exceptional violinist, composer and music
teacher he was highly respected in the music circles. The year
Wolfgang was born he published The Method for Learning to Play a
Violin which became a compulsory reading for the future
generations of violinists.
His daughter, Mozart’s sister, Nannerl, inherited this musical talent from
her father and became a virtuoso from her early age. But Leopold waited
for his "music successor", a boy of his flesh and blood to expand and
improve his musical science to the utmost limits.
Mozart’s talent started to show very
early. He was only 3 when he started to play, and with the age of 4 he
could repeat any piano lesson his father would give to his sister. He
was only 5 year old when he started composing. Seeing that his children
are exceptionally gifted, Leopold decides to completely give up his
career and provide them with all his knowledge. In 1762, when Mozart was
6, Leopold decides to present his children’s skills to the public. After
a successful performance in Salzburg, he organises big European tours in
almost all big cities of Western Europe. These tours will mark the
entire Mozart’s childhood and youth. On these journeys Mozart fascinated
everyone around him by his talent and skill, playing often blindfolded
on the silk-covered keyboard and establishing the reputation of a boy
wonder. At the age of 13, he goes to the homeland of music, Italy, where
he wins the highest recognitions and a new name -Amadeus.
this be seen in his horoscope?
In the fourth house there is a number
of planets. This house speaks about the origin, circumstances of
beginning and end of life, home and family. Cusp of this house begins in
Capricorn with triple conjunction of Saturn, Sun and Mercury...What does
it tell us? First we see an old line of tradition (Saturn) on his
father’s side (Sun). Further, the home (fourth house) where Mozart was
born is also very old (Capricorn, Saturn). It was built in the fifteenth
century and today is a museum dedicated to him (ruler of the twelfth
house-museum in the fourth house -home). This position also tells us
about considerable oldness (Saturn) of his parents (Leopold and Anne
Mary were 37 respectively when Mozart was born).
Leopold Mozart comes from a poor family of Augsburg bookbinder
(Sun-father, Saturn-poor, Mercury-book in the fourth house-origin). This
"cultivated provincial", as Mozart called him, we see as a steady,
rational and serious man, persistent and unyielding in his intentions
and actions (Saturn) with broad education (Mercury) and of high
authority (Sun conjunction Saturn). Artistic side of his personality is
seen in the position of Neptune (art) in Leo (father) in the tenth house
(parents), and the Sun (father) at the degree of Libra (art). In the
very beginning of Mozart’s life he published a book which was a big
success – shown by the Sun (father, success) conjunction Mercury (book)
in the fourth house (beginning of Mozart’s life). However, realising his
son's talent, he decided to give up his own career and devote his life
completely to his education and affirmation. Being a very religious man,
a true believer, Leopold felt that God was obliging him to pass all his
knowledge onto his son. This is caused by the most interesting
constellation, Sun conjunction Saturn conjunction Mercury opposition
Neptune, that has determined Mozart's destiny in many ways. Thus,
Leopold (Sun), being a man ready for self-denial (Saturn), sacrifices
(Neptune) his own career in order to carry on his knowledge( Mercury) on
to his child (Mercury).
Mozart never went to school. In his
youth, he was given education by Leopold. Again, this is obvious in the
position of Mercury (elementary education) in conjunction with Sun
(father) and in the third house (elementary education) the Moon is
located (family)-education from family.
Siblings, as well as short travels
are symbolised by the third house. The Moon conjunction Pluto points out
to the large number of siblings, most of which died (Pluto – death). The
only one to survive was his sister (Moon) born in Cancer (July
3rd,1751). Her talent in art is shown in the position of Jupiter, ruler
of the third house, in the artistic sign of Libra, as well as in the
position of Moon at the degree of Libra. Also, this position indicates
all the travels ( 3 house) abroad (Sagittarius) in Mozart's youth (3
house). Naturally, these are family (Moon) travels, and since the Moon
rules 10 house, we can see that the goal of these travels was to attain
reputation (10. house), and that Mozart has attained the greatest glory
(3 house) on travels (3. house) abroad (Sagittarius). Another indicator
is conjunction of Sun (fame, success) and Mercury (youth, travels).
The fact that Mozart had to prove his
arts by playing the piano blindfolded, with piano keys covered with silk
is shown in the Sun (talent, quality) opposition Neptune (invisible) in
Leo (sight, to see), and he attained the reputation of a child prodigy
due to the position of Neptune (miracle) in 10 house (reputation). His
talent and excellence (Sun) he expressed as a child (Mercury) seemed
unreal, incomprehensible (Neptune).
Mozart was given highest recognition
at the age of 13 in Italy. Tributes and decorations are symbolized by
Jupiter, situated in his first house as the ruler of the third house,
indicating that he would get his highest recognition in youth, while
we see that he gets
a new name in Italy-Amadeus?
His full name at birth was John
Chrysostom Wolfgang Theophilus Mozart. Theophilius, meaning “the One
That Loves God”, was changed by Leopold very early in his life into
Gottlieb, the German version of the name; finally, in Italy, Gottlieb
turned into its Latin version, Amadeus.
The third house of a horoscope speaks about the name. The cusp of the
third house begins in Sagittarius (religion), showing us that this is a
religious (Sagittarius) name (the third house), “The One That Loves
God”. Moon, symbolizing changes, is situated in this house, thus the
change (Moon) of the name (3 house) takes place, while on journey (3
house). The Moon conjunction Pluto, symbolizing all that is dead, and
the new name is in Latin, the dead (Pluto) language (3 house).
After numerous journeys, successes and recognitions, at the age of 17
Mozart returns to his birth town Salzburg. The primary goal of all the
journeys - to obtain position on some of the courts in order to ensure
material existence and to be able to devote himself to creative work -
had not been achieved. As widely known, Habsburg monarchy ruled by
all-powerful Maria Theresa was in power at the time. She wasn't
especially keen on artists, believing them to be useless people. One of
her sons, Ferdinand, asked to take Wolfgang Mozart in his service,
having been convinced of his talent; she wrote a letter denying her
permission, thus closing the doors of all the courts in Europe for
Salzburg, although a pleasant town, for Mozart
represented a golden cage. Conservative environment and monotonous life
as well as the lack of musical means could not satisfy his independent
and creative spirit. To make the circumstances even worse, the
Archbishop of Salzburg, a certain Hieronymus Coloredo, although an
intelligent and well informed man, was not inclined to Mozart and his
music. As he came into power, Mozart was no longer free to travel so
often and, what's worse, he had to create insignificant, old-fashioned,
trivial compositions Coloredo required. The 17-year old composer, with
over 150 compositions behind him, found himself in a hopeless situation.
Mozart decided to leave Salzburg in 1777. Since his
father could not leave Salzburg, this time he left on tour around
Munich, Augsburg, Manheim and Paris with his mother. The tour was a
complete failure. Though he was well received everywhere, nobody made
him a satisfactory job offer. In Paris, on July 3rd, 1778 a new
misfortunate incident took place. His mother died. Embittered and
depressed as never before, he returned to Salzburg, into Coloredo's
disfavour. Relationship between the two of them grows more and more
intense. The conflict was about to happen. Mozart had had a lasting
desire, a dream, to go to Vienna, his Pianoland, as he had called it.
Finally, in 1781, while his stay in Vienna, a severe conflict with
Coloredo took place, which resulted, on Mozart's request, by his
dismissal from the service. Mozart decided to stay in Vienna, to live
there and create as a completely independent composer.
Why were the people from authority
so disinclined towards Mozart?
All the superiors, and power in general is described
by the Sun, 10. house, ruler of the 10. house, as well as the Leo sign.
In 10. house in Leo Neptune is in opposition with Sun, Saturn and
Mercury. Through this aspect, we clearly see the battle between power
(Sun) and art (Neptune). Neptune in 10. house in Leo represents Mozart
with his reputation (10. house) of an artist (Neptune) of a superior
(Leo) talent. However, Neptune in unfavourable aspect with planets in 4.
house speaks of various intrigues, manipulations, lies (Neptune) by the
authorities (Leo), and we see Mozart isolated (Neptune) in his birth
town (Neptune opposition Sun in 4.house – birth town) and forced into
(Saturn) creating obsolete, conventional (Saturn) music forms to satisfy
the archbishop's (Sun) needs.
10. house begins in the sign of Cancer. The Ruler of
Cancer, Moon, makes square with Uranus, and we can see the woman
(Cancer, Moon) in power, Maria Teresa, that, through a letter (ruler 10.
in 3. house – letter) disables, blocks (square – to stand against)
Mozart's progress, (Uranus).
Archbishop Coloredo is represented by the planets in 4.house.
Musicologists describe him as:»...Cruel (Saturn) ruler(Sun) with cold
feelings and dark character (Saturn), intelligent and well informed
(Mercury) man, imposing various restrictions and limitations (Saturn)
and with no understanding for art (Neptune)....»
This position also gives a picture of Salzburg (4.
house) as a conservative, monotonous, uninspiring (Saturn) environment.
Mozart went on the new tour around Europe in 1777,
this time with his mother, that suddenly died in Paris. Symbolism
reaches its cusp in Moon conjunction Pluto square Uranus. Mother (Moon)
suddenly (Uranus), unexpectedly dies (Pluto), while on journey (3.
house) abroad (Sagittarius).
Mozart's dream about living in Vienna, his Pianoland,
is clearly visible in the position of Neptune in Leo in 10. house.
Dreams and desires are symbolized by Neptune in Leo, so we can see his
dream (Neptune) about life (Leo) in the capital (Leo) of arts (Neptune).
It is also a well known fact that Vienna was born is Libra, and since
Mozart's Ascendant is in Libra, Vienna (Libra) attracted Mozart like a
magnet (Libra-Ascendant- action, first step) to live there. The reason
for moving to Vienna was, of course, to escape from odious archbishop,
but also from his father (Neptune- escape opposition Sun,
Saturn-archbishop, father), and, in a broader sense, escape (Neptune)
from provincial, imitating (Saturn) Salzburg (4 house).
The opportunity presented itself, when Idomeneo, king
of Crete opera (Neptune-opera in Leo-king) was ordered from Mozart in
1781. Soon after, Coloredo was invited by the Emperor to come to Vienna,
to present him with his musicians. Realizing all the possibilities
Vienna had to offer, Mozart decided to ask for dismissal from Coloredo's
service, which he had been finally given after a fierce argument. This
has been the first individual artistic revolution in history. At the
time, musicians' position was the same as ordinary servants. Coloredo
could have had Mozart thrown into prison, if he had wanted it; however,
luckily, he did not do so. This decision Mozart made, to give up
material safety he had had in Salzburg, his protest and revolt against
the archbishop, as well as the risk he took, to live the life of an
independent, self supporting artist in Vienna, is caused by the
influence of Uranus (revolution, protest, revolt, independence, self
support) in 5. house (art). Uranus is in square position with Moon, so
we can see Mozart (Uranus), liberated artist (Uranus in 5.house)
confronting (square) the ruling class (Moon ruler of 10. house – power).
The most fascinating thing, is that Mozart decided on
this move precisely in 1781(!), when Uranus was discovered.
The beginning of the new life couldn't have been
better. “The Abduction from the Seraglio” opera, written in 1782, was a
great success among Vienna audience, and the same year Mozart started
his own family, by marrying Constance Weber. 2 years later, he joined
the Masonic lodge called “Benefaction”. However, the happiness was not
to last. Destiny of a genius is always a tragic one. Although Mozart
created his best master pieces, mature and original, that have made his
name immortal, the success and recognition did not come. Vienna audience
turns its back on him more and more, considering his music to be
“difficult” to listen, whereas the Vienna aristocracy, that had had
their doors wide open for him during his wonder child period, completely
ignored him, giving preference to mediocre, second-rate composers. The
same second-rate composers, leaded by Antonio Salieri, court composer,
tried to keep Mozart as far from court as possible through intrigues,
plots, and, unfortunately, they succeeded. His financial position was
becoming worse, his wife Constance did not run the household rationally,
she was often ill and depressed, four out of six of his children died
after only several months of life, which aggravated both his mental and
physical health. He started to drink, looking for oblivion in merry
company and temporary pleasures. The end was near.
This is all clearly obvious from his horoscope.
Mozart's composing “The Abduction from the Seraglio”
opera immediately after moving to Vienna is visible from the position of
Neptune (opera, abduction) in 10. house. Opera was a success (10.
house), but only temporarily, since Neptune was in opposition to Sun,
and after a while the success ( Sun) faded away (Neptune) and the opera
(Neptune) is being forgotten (Neptune).
Soon after, he married Constance, thus becoming
completely independent man. This is expressed by the ruler ASC, Venus
placed in Aquarius, so Mozart becomes independent (Venus in
Aquarius-independence) through marriage (Libra, Venus).
Constance Weber Mozart is represented in his 7 house.
The cusp of this house begins in the youngest zodiac sign, Aries, on 15
degrees (Gemini-youth), thus she is 8 years younger than Mozart, and at
time of her marriage she was only 18 years old. In relationship to him,
she is a foreigner, German (Aries), which is also shown by the ruler of
Aries, Mars, in 9 house (foreigner). About the big, passionate, true
love they had for each other we can see in almost precise trine Venus
and Mars make (rulers of 1 and 7 house). With the cusp of 7 house in
Aries, we see Constance as a very strong, dynamic person, vigorous and
full of energy. She has successfully overcome 6 child births and all the
illnesses that came along with them. But, above all, after Mozart's
death, she has fought decisively to protect her late husband's work from
abuse, stealing and unlicensed publishing. This is presented to us
through Mars in trine with Venus, and we see Constance (Mars, ruler of 7
house) that fought (Mars) for Mozart's work (Venus-Mozart, in 5 house-
creative work), and with some success (TRIGON). 18 years after Mozart's
death, Constance married certain Nikolaus von Nisen, Danish diplomat, a
great admirer of Mozart's music.
3. house in horoscope describes the second husband of his wife (9 house
from the 7). With this house's cusp in Sagittarius, we see that he was a
foreigner, and the ruler of this house in Libra (diplomacy, politics),
thus he is Danish (Sagittarius) diplomat (Libra). Also, the ruler of his
1. house (Mozart's 3 house) is in Mozart’s ASC, making him an admirer of
his (ASC) music (Libra).
The fact that Constance hadn't been a good
housekeeper, and that she didn't rationally conduct the household is
visible in Neptune position (chaos, impracticality) in her 4. house
(Mozart's 10 house), that describes relationship to the home we live in.
In Vienna, Mozart becomes a mason. House symbolizing
secret organizations is 12. house, and the house symbolizing lodges,
freemasonry, is 4. house. Ruler of 12. house, Mercury, is situated
precisely in 4. house, thus making Mozart mason. Mercury was in
conjunction with Sun and Saturn, so also his father (Sun) and his
grandfather (Saturn) were freemasons (4. house).
House related to children is 5.house. It starts in Aquarius, and the
ruler Uranus is also in the 5. house in unfavourable aspect with Pluto
(death), and that is the reason why four of Mozart's children died. This
is also indicated by the ruler of 8 house (death), Venus, in 5. house
(children), as well as the cusp of 5.house on 24 degree (degree of
Pisces - loss).
What was the reason for Mozart, although he had created unsurpassable
music works, to be treated without understanding, rejected and forgotten
by the audience, aristocrats and royals?
Why, in spite of miserable living conditions, did he
create sublime, divine music, though he knew it would not improve his
It would suffice just to take a look at the 4 planets in Aquarius and
Uranus in 5. house, and everything becomes clear. Being a completely
uranium-person, genius, man ahead of his time, Mozart, with his firm and
unshakable uranium-will, boundless inventive powers and creative
imagination, deliberately defies his epoch, his stupid, conservative
contemporaries, taking no consideration of criticism and
underestimation, nor of miserable living conditions; he persistently
followed his own vision, knowing that he created priceless work, that
would be accepted and understood by the generations that were yet to
Uranus in 5. house makes square with Moon and Pluto
in 3. house. Moon describes masses of people, i.e. audience, and as the
ruler of 10.house placed in Sagittarius, it also describes rulers (10.
house), aristocrats and noblemen (Sagittarius) that are confronting
(square) him, rejecting and ignoring both him and his ingenious,
original (Uranus) creative work (5. house), thus blocking, foiling
(square) his ascent and merited success. (Moon, ruler of 10. house) They
were comfortable with the serene, cheerful young boy, that had amused
them with his virtuosity on piano in his youth (Moon, ruler of 10. house
-success, in 3. house-youth, child), but were now bothered by the
spiteful, independent innovator, clearing new paths in music (Uranus in
The position of the Sun is also very interesting. It
is in the 4. house that, among other things, represents intimate opinion
we have on ourselves. With Sun in this house, we see that Mozart had a
very high opinion on himself, that he had been completely aware (Sun) of
his quality (Sun). However, this is a very unfavourable position for the
Sun, because here it is located in NADIR, that is, in the dark,
unexpressed, thus leaving Mozart's undoubtful talent (Sun) unnoticed.
Sun is positioned in an unfavourable aspect with
Neptune in Leo in 10. house. Neptune rules the 6. house that represents
work, employment, as well as colleagues. Being the ruler of 6. house,
when placed in 10. house, it indicates that many of his colleagues were
highly esteemed composers, and this position points out to Antonio
Salieri (August 18th,1750, 11E58, 45N20) that was court (Sun) composer
(Neptune), and since Neptune is on 9th degree (Sagittarius), he was
foreigner, Italian. Unfavourable aspect indicates that Salieri, through
numerous plots, intrigues, frauds (Neptune), has managed to disable
(opposition) Mozart's ascent, and jeopardised his status and reputation
(Sun). This aspect also shows Mozart's tendency to drink (Neptune).
Mozart has spent final years of his life struggling
to survive, living in utmost poverty. His physical and mental health was
growing worse every day. Deaths of his mother, father, children, many
dear friends, poverty that befall him, complete lack of his work's
recognition, intrigues made by his rivals, all of them caused him to
fall into a state of resignation and sombre disposition. He was growing
more and more obsessed with thoughts about death. In one of his letters,
he wrote:” Since death is the real, ultimate goal of our life, I have
made acquaintance with this man's truly best friend some years ago so
well, that her picture has nothing horrible in it for me, but yet
peaceful and comforting”.
Dusan Plavsa made an interesting point in his book
“Music portraits and profiles". In his essay on Mozart he says:” After
his mother's death in Paris in 1778, he is constantly followed by
troubles that have damaged not only his physical, but also his mental
health. Serene spirit of an antique speculator from Pericle's era is
invaded by fatalism and doubt in life values. Tragic accents are growing
more and more frequent in his work, at the end making his thoughts and
his life burn out in glorious symphony of death. ". In the last year of
his life, 1791, he wrote his probably most famous opera “The Magic
Flute”, which was a great success. Soon after, he is given order to
compose Requiem, mass for the dead. Obsessed with fantasies and visions
about death, he started believing that he was writing Requiem for
himself. Unfortunately, he wasn't mistaken. He has worked with enormous
zeal to create Requiem, in bed and with fever; however, death came
first, and he died on December 5th, 1791, with unfinished work in his
hands. Many details in his life during the last years, as well as cause
of death remained mystery till today. On the morning of December 6th,
1791, he was buried in common grave for the poor in Vienna. The grave
has never been found.
First of all, why did Mozart always have finance
troubles? House speaking of financial position is 2. house. This house
begins in Scorpio on 12th degree. Ruler of Scorpio, Pluto, is in
conjunction with Moon (versality) in Sagittarius, which also indicates
inconstancy, lack of practical sense. Pluto and Moon are in square with
Uranus. Uranus, signifying Mozart himself, represents spending,
wastefulness, and we can see his unfitness to conduct his finances
rationally. Another indicator is the cusp of 2. house on 12th degree
(Pisces-chaos, impracticality, loss). Also, the position of Mercury in
horoscope indicates how rational, practical is someone. Mercury is in
unfavourable aspect with the planet of opposite effect, Neptune, which,
as well as Pisces, symbolizes impracticality, loss. Scorpio, among other
things, symbolizes borrowing, credits, money from other people, and
since 2. house is in this sign, just before his death (Scorpio) Mozart
borrows (Scorpio) money (2.house). Ruler of Scorpio, Pluto, is in 3.
house in Sagittarius, and he borrowed (Scorpio) money from close friends
aristocrats(Sagittarius), and he asked for money through letters
(3.house-letters). Also, 2. house tells us about his nutrition habits.
Being in such poverty that he had often been hungry, Mozart often ate at
his friends' houses in the neighbourhood. The same symbolic again. Ruler
of 2.house (food) in 3 house (close friends, neighbours).
What can horoscope tell us about his health condition?
6 house describes illnesses, health. This house
begins in Pisces. Pisces and Neptune symbolize infectious diseases,
infections, poisoning, and Mozart had various diseases in his life, such
as scarlet fever, measles, typhus. Also, Pisces and Neptune symbolize
mental illness, and, as a consequence of Neptune's unfavourable aspect
with stellium in 4. house, we see that Mozart had mental illness
(Neptune) by the end of his life (4. house). Mozart's thoughts( Mercury)
are troubled by fantasies, visions (Neptune) about death (Mercury on
Scorpio degree – obsessions, death). This is also indicated by Pluto's
position (obsession, death) in 3. house (way of thinking). Conjunction
of Pluto and Moon in 3. house also shows that as consequence of death
(Pluto) of many family members (Moon) and many close friends (3. house),
thoughts (3. house) on death (Pluto) begin to obsess (Pluto) him.
Letter sent by Mozart to his father, in which he
expressed his philosophical attitude about death is also visible in
Pluto's (death) position in Sagittarius (philosophy) in 3. house
(letter), as well as in the position of Mercury (letter) at the degree
of Scorpio (death) in conjunction with Sun (addressed to his father).
Dusan Plavsa has found the best way to describe the
symbolism of Pluto and Moon in 3. house in his essay:»After his mother's
(Moon) death (Pluto) in Paris (Sagittarius) in 1778 , he was constantly
followed by troubles, damaging not only his physical, but also his
mental (Moon) health. Serene spirit (Moon in Sagittarius) of an antique
speculator(3.house in Sagittarius) from Pericle's era is invaded by
fatalism (Pluto) and doubt(Pluto) in life values. Tragic (Pluto) accents
are growing more and more frequent in his work, at the end making his
thought (3.house) and his whole life (Pluto) burn out in glorious
symphony of death (Pluto). "
Mozart's dying while composing Requiem is visible in Pluto's position in
3. house. Therefore, in the moment of death (Pluto), Mozart writes
(3.house) religious (Sagittarius) work, mass for the dead (Pluto).
Lyrics (3. house) of this composition is in dead (Pluto), Latin language
(3. house). He wrote it in hurry (Pluto square Uranus- haste), but, due
to unfavourable aspect between these two planets, he did not finish it.
Also, the fact that Mozart died creating is visible in the fact that
ruler of 8. house, Venus, is in 5. house (creation).
Circumstances under which Mozart died are unknown, as
well as cause of death, and this is shown in Neptune (secret, mystery,
unknown) forming unfavourable aspect with stellium from 4. house (end of
life). Neptune is the ruler of 6.house (illness), so the illness he
caught by the end of his life and of which he died remained unknown
(Neptune). The cusp of 8. house begins on 12th degree (Pisces-mystery,
secret), so we can also see here that the cause of death is unknown.
On December 6th, 1791 Mozart was buried in common
grave for the poor. We can see that in the cusp of 4. house (grave) in
Capricorn (poverty), and the ruler of 4.house, Saturn, is in Aquarius
that symbolises unity, collective. Saturn, ruler of 4. house (grave) is
positioned in opposition with Neptune (mystery), thus the location of
his grave remains unknown. Another indicator is also Pluto (grave) in
square with Uranus in Pisces (secret).
Only after Mozart died,
his name became famous. Why?
Fame after death is brought by Saturn in Nadir,
