The Stepping Stone

The Kapp Putsch did not succeed, that’s for sure – but it did not completely fail either. It did fail in Berlin all right, but in Bavaria (a de-facto semi-independent state within the Weimar Republic), it was very much successful.

The de-facto Bavarian Army that consisted of local Reichswehr units, the Freikorps (that together with the Reichswehr were de-facto occupying Munich after the destruction of the Bavarian Soviet Republic a year earlier) and the newly established Einwohnerwehr (“Civil Guard” – another right-wing paramilitary force) saw the Kapp Putsch (and the resulting temporary collapse of a central government in Berlin) as a perfect opportunity to get rid of “November criminals” (i.e. the Social-Democratic state government).

An opportunity that they promptly seize. On March 14th (the very next day after the commencement of Kapp Putsch) the Bavarian Army forced the much-hated Minister-President Johannes Hoffmann (who during his tenure as Bavarian Minister of Education removed the Bavarian schooling system from the supervision of the Catholic Church) to resign.

Two days later, it installed Gustav Ritter von Kahr (a committed monarchist knighted by a Bavarian King Ludwig III, a former head of the provincial government of Upper Bavaria and the creator of the “Civil Guard”) as the next Minister-President of a then Free State of Bavaria.

This putsch (and it was a putsch all right) split the German nation – now it was Munich vs. Berlin; Bavaria vs. Prussia; Catholic vs, Protestant; Right vs. Left; Conservative vs. Liberal.

Von Kahr’s administration in no time transformed Bavaria into what it called a Ordnungszelle (“territory of order”). In practice, it was a territory of right-wing order where all left-wing political activities were (often brutally) suppressed while the right-wing parties, groups, organizations and activities were openly encouraged and supported by the state government.

Including separatist forces committed to total and complete Bavarian independence from Germany – which worried the central government in Berlin to no end. Ultimately, it passed a decree for the protection of the Republic against right-wing extremists and forced von Kahr to resign on 21 September 1921.

It did not help much as by that time von Kahr has already the final steps that transformed the once-Red Bavaria into a bastion of radical right-wing German nationalism – the counter-balance to the still mostly Social-Democratic Prussia.

And a perfect springboard, stepping stone and a lifetime opportunity for Adolf Hitler and now completely his Nazi party.

Interestingly, Adolf Hitler almost took part in the Kapp Putsch. On March 14th, 1920 the Reichswehr (that apparently already held him in high esteem and thus believed that he would be of great value to the coup) flew him from Munich to Berlin on a requisitioned aircraft.

His pilot was no other than Robert von Greim – a Bavarian Army veteran and a decorated war hero like himself. However, unlike Hitler, von Greim was already an officer when the Great War broke out.

Prior to becoming a pilot, he commanded an artillery battery and then went on to become a battalion adjutant of 8th Field Artillery Regiment. 10 August 1915 he transferred to the German Air Service (the equivalent of Luftwaffe in German Imperial Army).

After successfully completing his pilot training, he initially flew a two-seater artillery observer aircraft but subsequently transferred to a fighter unit – Jagdstaffel 34.

He not only survived (a no small feat given the vulnerability of WWI aircraft) but promptly became an ace and in nine months scored impressive 28 aerial victories. Which earned him not only Iron Cross Second and First Class (like Hitler) but also the much-coveted Pour le Mérite (the highest military decoration in Imperial Germany) and Military Order of Max Joseph (the highest military decoration in Kingdom of Bavaria).

In 1933, Hermann Göring (a fighter ace and a decorated WWI hero himself) invited Greim to help him to rebuild the German Air Force, and in 1934 he was appointed to command the first fighter pilot school, following the closure of the secret flying school established near the city of Lipetsk in the Soviet Union during the closing days of the Weimar Republic.

By the end of the WW2, von Greim rose to the rank of Generalfeldmarschall and at the very end of it replaced Göring as commander-in-chief of Luftwaffe. Like Hitler, he committed suicide but, unlike his boss, in American custody (on May 24th 1945).

Unfortunately (or fortunately) for Hitler, during the Kapp Pursch von Greim made a mistake (apparently, he was a far better pilot than navigator). He landed on a wrong airfield which but that time was under control of striking workers who prevented Hitler from joining the putschists.

Hitler was very much aware of the indisputable fact that – Providence or no Providence – his chances of coming to power in Germany via victory in the national elections in the foreseeable future were precisely zero. He still was a leader of a very small very local and very right-wing nationalist party (and not even a German citizen yet) – definitely not a recipe for success.

Consequently, he had but one workable strategy – come to power in Bavaria (far more receptive to his nationalist, anti-Semitic and revanchist message), and then use its formidable power to take over the whole Germany (and Austria which was religiously and culturally even closer).

Inspired by a successful military coup of March 14th, 1920 and (correctly) believing that his chances of winning the elections in the Free State of Bavaria were only marginally above zero, Hitler decided that his only chance of coming to power in Bavaria was to organize and lead a successful military (or paramilitary) takeover of power in Munich.

To organize and execute a successful coup, he needed support of the masses (that had to be hypnotized and whipped into a berserk frenzy with public speeches, newspaper articles and radio addresses), support of Bavarian elite (politicians and wealthy individuals) and of the de-facto sovereign Bavarian Army.

Sovereign not only from the central government in Berlin but from the state government in Munich as well – local Reichswehr units, Bavarian Freikorps and newly minted Civil Guard.

But more than that, he needed his own paramilitary force. His very own private army. The army that will be subsequently known as the (in)famous brownshirts. Stormtroopers. The Sturmabteilung (the “Storm Detachment”).

The SA.

Unexpected Humility

By the time he was confirmed as the absolute ruler, the dictator, the Führer of the Nazi party, Adolf Hitler already knew that he was the Chosen One, the Savior, the Messiah of Germany and the German people.

He was recognized as such by the NSDAP leaders (i.e., its Executive Committee), by the Thule Society (although he could not care less about that recognition) and now by just about all members of the Nazi party. Not surprisingly, he already started to make statements (in private) to that effect.

Public statements, however, were a different matter entirely. Publicly he demonstrated unexpected humility – which was totally alien to him. Unlike in private, he did not position himself publicly as the future Führer, the political Messiah, the one who will restore the power and glory of Germany, right the wrongs committed by the Treaty of Versailles and once again make Germany a global economic, political and military superpower.

But as a mere “drummer” who was rallying the German masses, preparing them for the eventual coming of the “Greater One” and thus but paving the way for the Great Leader whose day might not dawn for some years to come. In other words, he presented himself not as “Jesus Christ” but only as “John the Baptist” of post-Great-War Germany.

The reasons for this sudden humility were purely pragmatic – it was a realpolitik, plain and simple. After the failed Kapp Putsch, the Social Democratic national government in Berlin was justifiably worried about the possible arrival of a charismatic, popular and powerful right-wing leader who very well might orchestrate another nationalist coup – this time a successful one.

Being a no stranger to violence, the Berlin government could very well have taken “preventive measures” and eliminate a potential threat before it becomes a clear, present and serious problems. In other words, attracting too much attention to himself could have been dangerous (even very dangerous) to his freedom, health and quite probably his very life.

Besides, Germany was mostly Prussia – at that time Protestant, liberal and left-leaning. Bavaria, however, was an entirely different matter.

A Highly Imperfect Tool of the Providence

GA

Hitler was a mystic. A genuine mystic. In other words, he had the ability to communicate (actually, listen to) with what he believed the Higher Power. Occasionally, he called it “God” but most of the time he called it Providence.

He sincerely (and correctly) believed that his was a loyal servant of this Higher Power (“I go the way that Providence dictates with the assurance of a sleepwalker” – he used to say) and (incorrectly) that it wanted the same thing as he did. And thus will protect him from all misfortunes (injury, illness, death, etc.) and perform miracles for him when he needs them to accomplish his Divine Mission.

Adolf Hitler wanted a lot. He wanted to right the wrongs committed by the Treaty of Versailles; fix enormous economic, political and social problems of Germany; punish both internal and external criminals (“November criminals” and “Versailles Robbers”) responsible for the humiliation and mugging of Germany; get back territories seized by the robbers; unite all Germans (including Austrians) into Ein Reich.

He wanted to restore German power and glory by transforming the defeated and depressed nation into an economic, political and military superpower; obtain enough Lebensraum in the East to make sure that horrors of the Blockade never happen again; and, first and foremost, to lead Germany and the German people to victory in the existential war with Bolshevism and the “Jewish race”.

And ultimately to transform Germany into a genuinely happy nation – the happiest in the world and in the whole human history.

Unfortunately for him, the Providence had but one goal – and a much simpler one. Adolf Hitler was right about one thing – the Western civilization at that time did face an existential threat and subsequently (after the German invasion of the Soviet Union) got involved in an existential war with an enemy out to destroy it and replace it with an alternative civilization – a global Communist state (Union of Soviet Socialist Republic).

However, this existential war was a clash of civilization (a cultural war), not a racial war. And there was no such thing as a “Jewish race”.

The Providence (that can be viewed as a Guardian Angel of the Western Civilization) did want Adolf Hitler to win this existential war – and to win it at any cost (short of making it a Pyrrhic victory). Consequently, it did not care about collateral damage to Germany (or any other country or nation for that matter) as long as “the cure was not worse than the disease”.

And this had no desire to help Hitler achieve his other objectives, minimize collateral damage – or protect him, Germany (or anyone else for that matter) once its objective has been achieved. Neither did not care what Hitler believed in – as long as he was working towards achieving the fundamental objective.

We have been conditioned to believe (by movies, fiction books, etc.) that any battle (let alone existential battle) is a battle between good guys and bad guys, good and evil, forces of light and forces of darkness. Reality, however, is substantially different.

Francis Paul Wilson is a bestselling author of over fifty mystical horror novels. And as some of the really gifted authors of mystical thrillers, a born mystic capable of superconsciously obtaining genuine supernatural knowledge and presenting it the form of fiction.

In his Adversary Cycle and some other Repairman Jack novels, he presented a paradigm which was very close to what was actually going on a supernatural (spiritual) plane in the first half of the XX century.

In this paradigm, a human civilization is a battlefield where an existential war is taking place between two cosmic forces – The Otherness and The Ally. The first one is out to destroy the human civilization as we know it and to replace it with an alternative – and a very different civilization.

The Ally protects the human civilization from destruction by the Otherness because it needs it for some purpose (which does not require its destruction). But often uses tools and methods that human ethics considers immoral (possibly even disgusting) and human law – outright criminal.

In reality, Hitler’s Providence (that I will subsequently refer to as The Protector) was very similar to The Ally in F. Paul Wilson’s novels. Like God, it had no other hands but ours (i.e. human) so it had to use individuals such as Adolf Hitler and other Nazis thus “writing straight with crooked lines”.

And chose to turn a blind eye to even the most heinous crimes committed by Adolf Hitler and other Nazis because (1) these unsavory characters were the only ones who could protect the Western civilization from being annihilated by The Destroyer (the real-world equivalent of Wilson’s The Otherness) and its implicit servants – Joseph Stalin and the Bolsheviks; and (2) they could do it only if allowed to commit those crimes – and to build The Third Reich the way they saw fit.

However (we have to give it credit for that), The Protector did not let Adolf Hitler, the Nazis (at least many of them) and the Third Reich in general. Being an immensely powerful supernatural entity, it possesses the ability to predict the future (technically, the most likely future).

Consequently, it was aware of the magnitude of crimes that will be committed by Adolf Hitler and other Nazis. And made sure that the Third Reich is quickly and completely destroyed (and Adolf Hitler is gone to the afterworld) after they do their job for The Protector and the Western Civilization.

In real history, both Nazi Germany and Adolf Hitler were gone right after they inflicted sufficient damage on Stalin’s war machine, population and military-industrial complex to radically defuse its threat to the Western civilization and just three months before the USA dropped the first combat nuclear bomb on Hiroshima thus created the insurmountable deterrent that finally put an end to Stalin’s maniacal ambitions to conquer the world.

So its “Plan A” worked. Had it not worked, The Protector had “Plan B” (Valkyrie-style military coup in Nazi Germany) and “Plan C” (Germany being forced to return to the terms of the Versailles Treaty by the threat of being annihilated by nuclear bombs and strategic bombers developed and deployed by the Allies – the USA and Great Britain).

However, even The Protector does not have the power to violate the fundamental principle of the human Freedom of Will. Consequently, Adolf Hitler could have both won the Second World War (on both fronts) and achieved global domination (by being the first to develop and deploy a nuclear bomb, Horten XVIII–class high-speed, high-altitude intercontinental jet bomber and nuclear-tipped intermediate-range and strategic ballistic missiles) – by making and implemented the optimal military and R&D decisions.

 

Actor in a Global Drama

Despite being a thoroughly unique civilization, the Third Reich was but an actor in a global drama that spanned just over three decades – from 1914 to 1945. This drama (actually, the most massive tragedy in human history) happened in the following sequence of events (“acts”):

Taking Stock and Planning for the Future

Stock

Becoming the Führer of NSDAP was a major milestone for Adolf Hitler. A quantum leap, actually. He was no longer a “nobody” from the social standing perspective, but one of the most successful individuals in Munich – and very probably in the whole (semi-independent) state of Bavaria.

He became a permanent resident (although not yet a citizen) of his beloved Germany relocating to Munich – the capital of a conservative (and culturally close to his native Austria) Bavaria.

He fought – bravely and valiantly – for his de-facto adopted nation, literally shedding blood for his new Fatherland (and suffering other injuries being poisoned by a mustard gas).

He received a much-deserved recognition of his service, courage and sacrifice – Iron Cross of Second and First Class (the last one being a very rare decoration for a mere corporal and this indicating exceptional courage and service).

He was not promoted beyond Feldwebel but it did not bother him in the least. Actually, he turned down the promotion himself. Although he was very comfortable in the Army environment (much more so than in civilian life), he had no desire for a military career.

He had no family – his parents and his loving aunt have died and he was estranged for his sister (his only surviving sibling) and never had even a “platonic” (let alone sexual) relationship with a woman, effectively taking a vow of celibacy. Which did not bother him either – he accepted that this was a sacrifice necessary for accomplishing his unique, great and glorious Mission.

He did not receive the higher education (in fact, he has not even completed a secondary one) but it did not bother him, too. He firmly believed that he could (and would) successfully accomplish his Mission without wasting time and effort on a university degree. That he either already had all knowledge and skills that he needed – or would obtain them via much more efficient self-education.

He failed at his attempts to become a famous painter – or a famous architect. But he knew that it was a blessing in disguise as these failures made it possible for him to identify his Destiny, his Mission, the true meaning and purpose of his life.

By the age of thirty-two, he knew precisely who he was, what he wanted in life and what his great and glorious Mission was. He knew that he was the Chosen One, the Savior, the Messiah, the Führer whose job (whose Destiny, in fact) was to right the wrongs committed by the Treaty of Versailles; fix enormous economic, political and social problems of Germany; punish both internal and external criminals (“November criminals” and “Versailles Robbers”) responsible for the humiliation and mugging of Germany; get back territories seized by the robbers; unite all Germans (including Austrians) into Ein Reich; restore German power and glory by transforming the defeated and depressed nation into an economic, political and military superpower; obtain enough Lebensraum in the East to make sure that horrors of the Blockade never happen again; and, first and foremost, to lead Germany and the German people to victory in the existential war with Bolshevism and the “Jewish race”.

And ultimately to transform Germany into a genuinely happy nation – the happiest in the world and in the whole human history.

He has already made the first vital steps to achieving this highly noble objective. He became a powerful, highly efficient, inspirational and hypnotic public speaker – the most powerful in Munich and very probably in the whole of Bavaria.

He was an absolute ruler, the dictator of a political party – the indispensable tool for achieving power necessary to successfully fulfil his Mission. The party that provided him with hundreds of loyal supporters.

He had another indispensable tool at his disposable – Völkischer Beobachter (by the end of the year he will become its sole owner). The still very much local newspaper that has the potential to become a powerful national media outlet. It called itself the “fighting paper of the National Socialist movement of Greater Germany”, after all.

He proved himself to be a skilled, competent, experienced, cunning and efficient political operator and manipulator by securing vital support from wealthy sponsors, thwarting the attempt for a hostile takeover of his party by DSP (and the Thule Society) and engineering his own takeover of NSDAP instead.

He got the much-coveted (and vital) political recognition – invitation to a private political discussion by no other than Minister-President (head of the state government) of Bavaria Gustav Ritter von Kahr.

One of the common definitions of happiness is that it is a state of harmony with oneself, God (the “Higher Power”) and the people around you. By that definition, in 1921, Adolf Hitler was a perfectly happy individual (to the extent it was possible in Germany at that time given the highly uncomfortable environment – to put it mildly).

He found himself (the overwhelming majority of people never do); he knew perfectly well who he was, where he was going and what his Mission was. And he had a perfectly comfortable relationship with people around him – first and foremost, his audience at party meetings.

A well-known German astrologer Elsbeth Ebertin wrote:

It appears as if he only in his element when he has a mass audience that eagerly listens to every word he utters. On the platform he is like a man possessed, like a medium, the unconscious tool of Higher Powers.

Indeed, Adolf Hitler felt that his great, glorious, noble and even divine Mission was bestowed upon him by the Higher Power (the Almighty Providence). The Power that guided him (with powerful revelations), helped him (by performing genuine miracles for him) and protected him (by saving his life on the battlefield). And will continue to guide, help and protect him.

The formula of harmony and happiness in relationship with people around you is very simple. “I give, I receive; I receive, I give – in perfect balance”. Balance in term of aggregate value – financial, functional but, first and foremost, emotional and spiritual (i.e. by giving and receiving energies vital for emotional and spiritual nourishment of a human being).

And that’s precisely what Hitler did during his speeches (sermons, actually). He gave his listeners exactly the energies (the content of his speeches was nothing special) that they needed to feel nourished (emotionally and spiritually) whole, and ultimately happy.

Yes, it was “happiness on a battlefield” of an existential war – but it was happiness nevertheless. And he received from his audience exactly the same energies (“what I give – I receive”) that were vital for his emotional and spiritual nourishment – and thus for his happiness.

It was all good and well, of course, but there was still a lot of work to be done. He had to transform still very small and very local party into a powerful nationwide political machine. And then use it to achieve his ultra-ambitious objectives, to accomplish his ultra-ambitious Mission.

A propaganda machine (private and public), a money-making machine (to generate cash for an incredibly expensive project of obtaining the absolute power in Germany) and a paramilitary machine (to protect itself from the violent political opponents that had their own paramilitary units). And an extremely powerful and efficient organization (system) that will manage “all of the above”.

And that’s what he started to work on – the very next day after he was confirmed as the absolute ruler, the dictator, the Führer of NSDAP. And maybe even on the very same day.

Hitler’s Numerology Report

Numerology

Another occult discipline that has been around for millennia and that often (though not always) produces amazingly accurate personality profile, is numerology.

It is conceptually similar to astrology but, unlike the latter, it uses numbers obtained from dates (e.g. birthdate) and words (e.g. first and last name of the individual) to develop a personality profile.

St. Augustine of Hippo (arguably the most influential early Christian theologian and philosopher), wrote:

Numbers are the Universal Language offered by God to humans as confirmation of the truth

Similar to Pythagoras, he believed that everything had numerical relationships and it was up to the mind to seek and investigate the secrets of these relationships or have them revealed by divine grace.

The profile presented in this section demonstrates that Adolf Hitler should have consulted a numerologist (of which there were plenty in Linz) before attempting to enter the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna. It would have saved him a lot of time and effort and very well could have guided him to avoid costly and ultimately fatal mistakes.

Like the astrological profile, the numerology profile is derived (with minor modifications) from a numerology reading that was computer-generated (thank you, AI) and, consequently, is completely unbiased (software has no idea who Adolf Hitler was).

According to this reading, the Hitler was an idealist whose most fundamental drive was the desire to achieve joy and happiness for himself and for those around them (i.e. for his German compatriots).

Which was true and correct – being a national-sociopath, Hitler was, indeed, driven by a desire to make Germans a genuinely happy nation (albeit at the expense of other nations).

A competent numerologists would have told Hitler that his destiny is to create the maximum amount of happiness for his compatriots – something that could be done only by making Germany a genuinely happy nation.

Which automatically meant that his natural career path (his great and glorious Mission) was in politics and government service – and nowhere else. The report correctly predicted that while he will ultimately discover and successfully pursue his true calling, it will take him a lot of time and effort to identify his true purpose in life.

Unlike the astrology reading, his numerology profile confirmed that he had a strong desire to express himself artistically (i.e. that he was, indeed, a gifted artist). However, an artist in a general sense – the one who expresses powerful creative ideas in one or more visual arts.

Which meant that although Adolf Hitler was a talented artist and architect, it did not necessarily mean that he was destined to make one of these his professional occupation.

It could very well mean that he was born to be a public speaker (and an actor on a public stage) and a writer. Which further reinforced the conclusion that his destiny was in politics. Public politics.

According to this reading, Hitler was very emotional (he, indeed, was). And, although psychologically a loner, will be popular at gatherings (public meetings and other events) where his optimism infuses his audience. Which meant that he was destined to bring hope and optimism to desperate and depressed audience (and that’s exactly what he subsequently did).

It also stated that Hitler was a persuasive, (ultimately) positive, friendly (to his target audience), realistic (ultimately he did deliver on his seemingly outlandish promises), and self-controlled (despite appearing to be totally out of control – he was an excellent actor) and honest (a very rare quality for a politician) public speaker.

The reading promised that Hitler will be successful in his chosen career (he became one of the most successful politicians). He did get things done (even the ones that seemed impossible to accomplish).

It also promised that Hitler will be good at material accumulation. Which again proved to be true and correct – he both enjoyed an affluent lifestyle and radically increased the wealth of his nation – making Germany again an economic superpower.

The chart infers that Adolf Hitler possessed a powerful personality (in fact, enormously powerful) that will attract respect from both leaders and subordinates. And Hitler, indeed, was well-respected by his peers and superiors in German Army.

And subsequently deeply respected (although often hated) by leaders of just about all nations. And not just respected but revered, admired and even adored by his subordinates – Nazi officials and citizens of Nazi Germany.

According to numerology chart, Hitler was one of the very few individuals who had the capability to see both the key trends and the big picture – both current (AS IS) and the desired (TO BE) and to successfully lead the transition from the current to the desired.

And in this transition to build something (“remarkable things”) that benefits society for a very long time into the future. Which did happen – Nazi Germany created quite a few “somethings” (from VW Beetle to A4 ballistic missile and welfare system) that human society benefited very significantly from.

He was destined to become the moving force in building large physical structures or efficient procedural systems. Which confirmed that he, indeed, had an unquestionable talent for architecture but also meant that he was about to design and build a whole new society – a new civilization, even. The Third Reich. Which he subsequently did – and in a very short time.

The chart accurately predicted that Adolf Hitler will create an organization that he will use as a tool to build this unique and impressive system. And he did. Although he did not create NSDAP (it already existed for several months before he joined it), he radically restructured it into a unique “Führer’s Party” – an essentially new organization.

It (not surprisingly) predicted that Hitler will become a CEO of a major international organization (and he did become the absolute ruler of a vast international German Empire) and will have a committed and dedicated staff who will perform miracles for him, accomplishing what was considered totally and utterly impossible.

The chart claimed (correctly) that Hitler will receive the utmost joy and satisfaction from accomplishing something that will be recognized by individuals and society in general for their high caliber and their usefulness (i.e. for achieving something grandiose, vitally important and seemingly impossible).

Like the astrological chart, the numerological reading confirmed that Hitler had powerful intuitive, mystical and even psychic capabilities (that combined with his ingenuity subsequently helped him find creative solutions to seemingly impossible problems but ultimately led to his downfall and suicide).

The chart claimed that Hitler had a powerful inner desire for harmony which he subsequently implemented in his Führerstaat as a “national harmony” between classes, social groups and individuals. A harmony based on national-socialist ideology. And the no less profound desire to serve – his country and his nation. Which he did – the way he believed to be the best for Germany and Germans.

It also stated that Adolf Hitler was a powerful “agent of change” (a fundamental change as it turned out) and was comfortable and efficient in highly uncertain situations and environment (an indispensable feature for an efficient leader).

The reading correctly surmised that Hitler was passionately independent, versatile and clever with an uncanny ability to spot opportunities and to quickly and efficiently act on them.

And that he experienced restlessness and impatience when things moved along too slowly (in his opinion, they almost always were) or when constant repetition became monotonous (ditto).

It also correctly predicted that to accomplish his ultra-ambitious (and seemingly impossible) objectives, Adolf Hitler will assemble a highly efficient team of highly competent, very inventive and incredibly resourceful individuals.

Actually, he did much more than that. He destroyed the caste system that de-facto existed in Weimar republic and created a multitude of “social lifts” that saturated political, economic, social and military system of Nazi Germany with highly capable individuals.

Individuals who in republican Germany were misfits with no chances to succeed at all. Not because of lack of talents (they immediately proved otherwise) but because of the inefficiency and injustice of “the system”. The system that Adolf Hitler radically changed.

 

Hitler’s Natal Chart – that He Should Have Studied

NatalAdolf Hitler did not believe in the value of astrology. Until May 11th 1940, he simply ignored it considering this “occult science” an essentially harmless entertainment.

However, when he learned that astrological predictions inspired his deputy Rudolf Hess take a solo flight to England to negotiate peace with the British Government, he got so enraged that he immediately ordered a crackdown on astrology and astrologers in Greater Germany.

Acting on his orders, the Gestapo arrested and sent to concentration camps more than 600 practicing astrologers. Without any trial or even without any criminal charges – under the “preventive detention” decree.

While predictive astrology is generally considered a bunch of bunk (the fundamental principle of human Freedom of Will makes predicting the future practically impossible), descriptive (natal) astrology is a different thing entirely.

Natal astrology, by definition, is a methodology (but not science!) that allows to develop a comprehensive profile of the personality of an individual based on his/her date, time and place of birth.

This methodology is exceedingly complex and does not always produce clear-cut unambiguous results (which might be open to often very different interpretations). Consequently, it is simply impossible to scientifically prove or disprove the validity, usefulness and value of natal astrology.

However, in many cases it does produce amazingly accurate and thus highly valuable results. Consequently, it is usually a good idea to have your natal chart constructed (these days computers do it instantly) and then analyzed by several experienced astrologers.

Obviously, these analyses must be taken with caution and a grain of salt but should nevertheless been taken into account when planning one’s life and career as they can prevent costly (sometimes) very costly mistakes – in terms of time, effort and money.

When he decided to pursue the career of a painter and thus to apply to the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna, Adolf Hitler clearly did not consult an astrologer (although there were plenty of those in Linz where he resided at that time).

Which turned out to be a big mistake (very big, actually), because had he done that, it would have prevented him from wasting ten extremely valuable years of his life – and most likely led to a very different outcome of the Second Great War.

Why? Because his natal chart clearly demonstrated that the natural career path for him is neither painting nor architecture, but politics.

Hitler’s Mercury (a planet of communication) occupies a prominent position in his horoscope – it is s conjunct (close to) an area that defines the natural career for the individual in question.

Which means that the natural career path for Hitler was not in painting or architecture but in communications. The influence of Mercury is amplified by the fact that it is close to the boundary of the 7th house – the house of “other people”. Which indicates effective and formidable oratorical abilities and thus means – beyond the reasonable doubt – that the natural career for Adolf Hitler was in public speaking.

Hitler’s Mercury is in Aries, a fire sign ruled by Mars (planet of war). Which means that his communication style was fiery, assertive, forceful, belligerent, aggressive, confrontational and even verbally violent (and would deal with the matters of war and social violence).

It also means that Hitler head the unique ability to preach ‘I am one of you’ or ‘I represent you’ to the masses (making him a religious preacher – not just a politician). His Mercury is in poor shape which means that in his public speaking he will appeal to the most basic feelings – even to instincts.

And several different sources in his natal chart plainly indicate his hypnotic abilities to provoke powerful (and not necessarily positive) emotions in large masses of people.

Hitler’s Midheaven (the area that largely defines one’s career) is Leo (the sign of the leaders), ruled by the Sun. And the Sun is in Taurus, in his 7th house (area of the “other people” – the community).

His Saturn situated in the 10th house. Meant determination to achieve public acclaim, prestige, recognition and fame – to be in the limelight at all times. In other words, to make a quantum leap up on the social ladder.

Together, this all points to ‘career’ connected to a powerful sense of ego (i.e. to leadership). To authoritarian leadership. To dictatorship (his Venus in Taurus indicates tyrannical inclinations).

Which means only one thing – the natural occupation for Adolf Hitler was politics. Public politics. He was born to be a very powerful public speaker and a politician. The leader. The Führer.

The Führer who will rule using violence on a regular basis as a key tool for achieving his objectives. Who will put a lot of energy this violence that might lead to “extermination”. The Führer who seeks to establish harmony in “his world” but believes that the only way to create this harmony is to eliminate dissension. Literally.

His Mercury is in a wide opposition aspect (about 180°) to Uranus, the planet of restlessness, change and revolution. Which means that Adolf Hitler was destined to become not just a politician, but a revolutionary – someone who would bring a radical change to his country (and to the whole world).

However, it does not mean that this change would necessarily be positive. His Venus is is conjunct Mars (a planet of war). Which meant that Adolf Hitler had the potential to cause great harm, commit large-scale political crimes and even cause a serious war.

His Venus, Mars and Saturn are also all in fixed signs, indicative of an underlying extraordinary tenacity and perseverance (indispensable qualities for a politician), stubbornness.

Stubbornness that could be very harmful – to him as well as to others. In particular, it indicates his destructive tendency to blame everyone else (Sun in 7th) for everything what went wrong. It was never his own fault. In other words, his total lack of humility – a potentially fatal flaw for a leader.

His horoscope indicates that the dividing line between the conscious mind and other levels of mind has become blurred. Which means strong mystical abilities, openness to “revelations from above” but also serious mental instability bordering on insanity.

Which, in turn, means that while he may (unconsciously) use these abilities to find creative solutions to seemingly impossible problems, he might also commit colossal blunders and stubbornly insist on destructive and even suicidal course of actions sincerely believing that he is guided by a Higher Power.

Pluto in the 8th house gave him the crucial capability of being able to see beneath the surface, to understand hidden motivations of others (in other words, to be an excellent judge of character, intentions and situations).

Neptune conjunct Pluto in this house could make Hitler easily substitute what he wanted to see with what was actually there. Which led to dangerous, destructive and ultimately fatal delusions – and thus to fatal (i.e. suicidal) decisions and actions.
