Charles Manson appeals again

Charles Manson again tries to get out of prison: he appeals, even though his lawyer says that he is now totally institutionalized. I have written about Manson and Sharon Tate before (see links), but that was in 2008 and 2009. Meanwhile, you learn and see more (at least, that is what I hope)... So, here is another reading.

First of all:
Charts don’t mean destiny. Charts are telling us how to deal with the challenges of life (your mental health!, gender, genes, social circumstances and culture). There is no need to identify yourself with Manson, just because you were born on the same day or hour. It is what you do with the chart position, what you make of it, given the circumstances! I couldn't find a celebrity born on November 12, 1934 as an example of an alternative way to deal with the same kind of aspects.

Anyway, this is the chart with transits and progressions for the fatal day: August 9, 1969. 

Charles Manson got tools to become the leader of a gang. He managed to break free from the social circumstances of his parents’ home. He also had the tools to make a mash of his life, ending up in jail. What astrological themes are highlighted in his chart?

Jupiter is the most important planet in the chart of Charles Manson. Jupiter is on an angle and Jupiter rises before the Sun. Usually this is an indication for confidence, conviction and the importance of having social successes. In a way, considering his social background, there was a period when he ‘made it’. He had followers and he had influence.
Mercury is angular, pointing at the importance of communications and opinions.
Together, the importance of Mercury and Jupiter increase the power of communications. He has written several song texts (see here:  And it seems that he gets thousands of letters of people who want to become a member of the Manson family.
3.  MOON
The elevated Moon in Aquarius (square Ascendant and conjunct Northern Nodes) points at the importance of moods, needs, habits and family. His gang was named the Manson Family.

Charles Manson’s chart is not easy. He has Sun, Mercury, Venus and Jupiter in Scorpio. And all(!!!) of his planets are heavily afflicted!  The tightest aspects are Moon square Mercury and Mars conjunct Neptune. The first (Moon-Mercury) describes a conflict between sense and sensitivity or at worst a habit of lying. The second (Mars-Neptune) can easily lead to using and/or abusing drugs. There is almost no harmonious aspect, it is all struggle, trouble and fighting, except for Venus sextile Mars (passion, and that doesn’t help much in this case). With Sun square Saturn in Aquarius (ruled by Uranus) and Sun quatronovile Uranus we see a double Saturn-Uranus theme, mirroring the issue of restricted freedom and the will to break free.

Charles Manson had been in jail a few times before he got life. Crime is hidden in the details of the chart of the specific hour and place:

1. In the chart of the famous Dutch drugsdealer Klaas Bruinsma, Uranus and Neptune are very important. So it is in the birth chart of Charles Manson. Mars is conjunct Neptune and semisquare Uranus for being explosive under the influence of drugs. The combination is repeated several times in midpoint combinations.
2. Sun/Moon conjunct Lilith? Has this motivated him to enter ‘the wild side’ of life?
3. Midpoint AC/MC is sesquisquare Uranus and square Pluto. This is indicating a sudden transformation of conditions (like an arrest).

- Saturn opposition the midpoint Mars/Pluto mirrors the issue of unnatural death. This midpoint combination can’t be used for judging, because it is in the charts of victims and in the charts of killers or witnesses. It also takes more than just one midpoint combination (and situations!) to ‘activate’ this Mars/Saturn/Pluto issue.

- Jupiter, ruler 8, is quintile Midheaven (this points at getting away with it a bit...he was allowed to live but got life in jail). Today he will find out if this will be until he dies.

- Sun sextile Midheaven makes him 'visible' and made it probably more easy to manifest as a leader.

AUGUST 9, 1969
On the day that Sharon Tate and her guests were brutally murdered by members of the Manson family, transit Pluto was inconjunct the Progressed Midheaven of Charles Manson. An inconjunction of Pluto sometimes mirrors the price that you have to pay (the consequences).

Here is the chart with transits and progressions for now:

The earlier version...

I wondered about the trines here...

How do you know you have the right day. There's a discrepancy as to his date of birth. He insists he was born on the 11th but his b.c. says the 12th.

Hi G. Knight! This chart has an AA rating on Astrodatabank. That means that they consider the date and hour to be correct. I don't know why he says that he was born on the 11th when his BC says it is the 12th...
