My reading this morning was for a Gemini rising like myself “Wow”, I thought. “How lucky could I be? This reading will almost be like talking to myself.” But it was better than that. You see, we all know that the more readings you do, the better you get at it because you always learn something new. Well today was one of those days. I think everybody who is familiar with my work knows that I use Wolfgang Dobereiner’s Munich Rhythm Theory system.
As I was preparing for my appointment last night I noticed an aspect that I couldn’t quite get a handle on. It was Uranus conjunct Pluto. Uranus = extreme sudden change and Pluto=control, power or even something as explosive as a bomb, I just couldn’t’ grasp or integrate to my satisfaction how my client experienced these two energies. So I referred to Dobereiner’s book Patterns of Experience in the Astrological Diagnosis and Homeopathic Treatment of Illnesses and found his observations:
“The birth itself is preceded by a delusion or deception:
The mother, in love with someone other than the child’s father, must carry and give birth to the child of someone “unloved”
“(In extremely rare cases) the husband or partner is deceived into believing that he is the child’s father; the mother suffers from (possibly repressed) feelings of guilt.”
“(frequently) the mother feels that she has been deceived in her hopes and ideals by the child’s father, and must carry and give birth to the child of a man she (perhaps subconsciously) rejects”.
So I asked my client if he could relate to these observations. He was blown away. He told me that there was always a question in his mind as to whether he was his father’s son. His father has been dead for many years, and his mother lives in another country. Both mother and son enjoy an open and honest relationship. He plans to ask his mother about his suspicions on his next visit,
It is not enough to simply read Dobereiner’s observations, it is how he breaks down and reaches the kind of conclusions such as the one example I gave here. It is just one of many why I consider Wolfgang Dobereiner to have been one of the greatest minds in astrology.
