At the time of Kennedy’s death, Progressed Saturn was 5 minutes from an exact Conjunction with his Natal Neptune. This dissolves his position as leader of the free world, and Neptune spells conspiracy, intrigue, deception in regards to the cause of death. Since this takes place in the 10th house of Authority and place in life, there is a strong political component to the reasons behind the 35th president’s untimely and tragic demise. The Progressed Moon is in the last segment of its Conjunction with the Sun in the 8th house of final transformation. The effects of a Progressed Moon usually manifests an event one month before, right at the exact aspect, and finally, just as the planet leaves the aspect one month after it is in its core. Death is an 8th house Circumstance where the Progressed Moon aspect is taking place, and Saturn Progressions are of a very serious nature especially when coupled with Neptune.
The progression through the signs and houses, of a slow moving planet, can allow for several “events” to be experienced by the native. Here the planet Saturn puts JFK in the White House in the first place, and then is the same indicator of his tragic fall from power. JFK desired to clean up the CIA, the covert American intelligence organization that is ruled by Neptune. The Progressed Saturn activating that point shows his naivete in regards to the CIA’s response to his actions. This Aspect could very well indicate a significant clue in the motivation of the assassination.

The Conjunction of Hitler’s Progressed Moon directly on the midheaven is an interesting feature of the 6:30 pm birth chart. This rectified horoscope has Natal High Focus Uranus only a few degrees from the ascendant which makes for another strong possibility for accuracy. Without an absolute certainty of the correct birth time, there can only be an assumption of possible house cusp indications. But there is a definite effectual Conjunction of Progressed Jupiter on Natal Moon at the time of appointment as Chancellor. An apparent good fortune which later turns radically negative. The Natal Moon is also receiving a helpful Trine from Progressed Venus; another graceful aspect bringing a fleeting and illusory peace and prosperity.
Quote from astrologyking.com: Wilhelm Wulff, the German astrologer who rectified Hitler’s birth time to 6:03:27 pm. In early 1923, Wulff used this chart to accurately predict the 8-9 November 1923 Beer Hall Putsch:
“Particularly unfavorable planetary combinations, and for the autumn of 1923 Hitler’s ascendant revealed a malefic conjunction of Saturn and Mars. For about twenty-four hours on or about November 8-9, Mars and Saturn were particularly threatening. There were indications of violence with a disastrous outcome.”
Here we see that there are major aspects that are synchronous at the date and time of Marx’s death from bronchitis. The lungs are a 3rd house matter and the Transit Moon was just passing over Mercury the ruler of the 3rd house the day when he took his last breath. Pluto was Transiting his Natal Venus indicating the end of a matter. As Pluto proceeds to Transit the 3rd house and eventually passes over Natal Mercury after death, his ideology on making life a better experience for common workers becomes popular. Transit Sun is coming to Natal Pluto at the time of his burial on March 17th.
The Progressed Moon is opposite Natal Saturn. This shows that the 2 month period of the Progression is just about complete. An Opposition is an indication of stress, and Natal Saturn residing in the 1st house shows that there could be a weakness of the physical body from birth. The 1st house always shows the stamina of the native.
The negative indication of his Uranus at 20 degrees Sagittarius is: Men cutting through ice; A wholly unnecessary acceptance of hardship. This is an indication of his sensitivity to the need of humanity for throwing off the shackles of wage slavery. Natal Uranus is elevated and therefore a High Focus planet, indicating his throwing off the dictates of others and becoming the father of revolution with his publication of The Communist Manifesto.
A Natal indication of fighting the battles of inequality is seen with the High Focus Mars on the cusp of the 6th house of the common worker and stressful situations arising in the workplace.
With a Sun/Moon Conjunction in the Natal 2nd house of personal possessions, Marx’ Purpose and Feeling, and theories were sparked by his own state of economics.
Apparently Hess was aiming for someone in authority (Natal Mercury in the 10th aspected by P. Moon), to contact as a result of his notorious flight to Scotland on May 10, 1941, with takeoff from Augsburg, Germany at 5:45 pm.
The Progressed Moon is in exact Opposition with his Natal Mercury. Oppositions materialize objectives, however in this case there is a great conflict of interest with a direct confrontation with the enemy. The untimely action led to his arrest and subsequent incarceration for the remainder of his life.
Progressed Mercury is making an exact Square to Natal Mercury, revealing his internal struggle over his projected personal point of view (P Mercury conjunct the ascendant) that challenged those above him, namely Adolf Hitler (Mercury in the 10th). This gives testimony to the misguided advice encouraged by the astrologer Hess consulted.
The Progressed Moon and Progressed Mercury create a Grand Cross with Natal Mercury and Natal Moon; an interesting configuration to say the least. Here is where the dissipating potentials of a temporary Grand Cross correspond to the reality of a case where the dynamic urge to make change, with the presence of Squares, meets with disappointment and disillusionment. The mind and emotions are at odds with each other and the outcome was the opposite of what Hess’ astrological adviser “promised.”
The Progressed Moon came to an uncomfortable Square with Natal Moon in the 7th house approximately 3 months after parachuting into Scotland. And the Progressed Moon making a conjunction with Natal Saturn in the 4th house 4 months later, tells of the severe emotional stress and tragic end to Hess’ career as the Deputy Leader of the German people.
