Lovely pictures in this book by French Astrologer Christine Grenard. It was originally published in Paris. Cassell of London translated thankfully it for English readers. She does a nice comparison of Gandhi and Mozart, but I’m only attaching Mozart for viewing.
Wolgang Amadeus Theophilus Mozart was born on January 27 1756 at around 10 pm in Salzburg, then the Holy Roman Empire. He was christened, Johannes Chrysostomus Wolfgangus Theophilus Mozart. His father was from a wealthy family from which he was estranged, and a musician, though to support his family a music teacher. His mother came from a middle class family, from which no history of musicianship is known.
Unlike any other composer in musical history, he wrote in every musical form of his day and excelled in each one. His taste, his command of form, his range of expression have made him seem the most universal of all composers. His musical teacher was Franz Joseph Haydn, who also taught Ludwig Beethoven.
But no matter how you view his chart, he is always astounding, but his 5th Harmonic that really shows the dynamic between himself and his father. The incredible preponderance at the top of chart is obviously Wolfgang’s ability to transcend that vigorous discipline and demonstrate his his own defiant will and ability created music as close to perfection as man as ever attained.
By the time of his death Mozart, at age 35, he was widely regarded not only as the greatest composer of the time but also as a bold and “difficult” one; Don Giovanni especially was seen as complex and dissonant, and his chamber music as calling for outstanding skill in its interpreters. His surviving manuscripts, which included many unpublished works, were mostly sold by Constanze to the firm of André in Offenbach, which issued editions during the 19th century.
Mozart’s reputation was such that even before the end of the 18th century two firms had embarked on substantial collected editions of his music. Important biographies appeared in 1798 and 1828, the latter by Constanze’s second husband who obviously say their worth. The first scholarly biography, by Otto Jahn, was issued on Mozart’s centenary in 1856.
Mozart reposed on December 5, 1791 in Vienna. The cause is still unknown. Maybe an interesting exercise for those interested in medical astrology. If so, Eileen Naumann’s book is a good start.
This was updated on November 1 2020 with the harmonic and other charts for general interst, as well as his progressed chart for his date of demise.
