Pictured below is Nostradamus, and his natal chart. He was famous for writing over 900 rhymed quatrains (four-lined poems) filled with hidden prophecies that predicted the future for 10 centuries. He lived during the Renaissance and was astrologer to royalty and nobles in Salon. Nostradamus is a 9 life path; a humanitarian. He was also a herbalist, healer, physician and linguist.
When learning astrology, this chart struck me because of the obvious water trines. Water houses (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces) are the intuitive, psychic houses; they delve deep, are mysterious.
Moon in Scorpio gives depth of feeling and a keen, penetrating insight into the mysteries of life and death; as well as a tendency to keep true feelings under wraps.
Uranus, the planet that will not take the bit is somewhat quieted in the 12th house of Pisces. It is quietly, secretly, rebellious – hiding prophetic messages within secret texts, for instance. Uranus is the higher octave of Mercury (the communicator), and is an intuitive planet working in a mystical house.
Jupiter (generosity, philosophy) is exalted in nurturing Cancer; conjunct an angle- making it even more powerful. Saturn and Mars are both uncomfortable in Cancer, but I feel they give a steady anchor to home and roots so that when the waves of visions may come, the seer is not adrift.
Sun in Capricorn (honors, fame, time) conjunct Mercury (writing) with Neptune (mysticism) all in the tenth house of ‘how the world sees you’ shows the prophetic legacy Nostradamus left the world.
