An Interpretation of the Natal Chart of Bahá’u’lláh, VI

Díyáfat-i-‘Azamat, the Feast of Grandeur

The Almuten of the Ascendant is Mars in Gemini

In the astrological methodology of Rabbeinu ’Avraham ’Ibn ‛Ezra’, the Almuten of the Ascendant is considered to be the Almuten (“true governor”) of the entire natal chart.

In this sign, well-disposited by Mercury, Mars is a clear token of the native being a good talker, quick and nimble-witted, intelligent, one who knows how to steer his course in life, and who is bound to succeed.

This position often inclines to make easily formed friendships, but the affections are somewhat superficial. The native is kind, but his benevolence is scattered; his warm and attractive tone of voice brings him many friends, and enables him to succeed in a political or business career, or as a barrister. From the educational standpoint, this position is favorable, the native possessing great capacity for acquiring knowledge.

In the third decanate of Gemini, Mars gives manliness and physical endurance; if Jupiter is well aspected in the chart (which it is), this position is very favorable for the house occupied by this sign.

The Volasfera symbol for the twenty-fifth degree of Gemini reads:

An old book lying open upon a table, and beside it a burning lamp. It signifies a person of some exceptional mental powers, whose mind will be well stored with ancient learning. One of a studious and retiring nature, whose greatest happiness and whole wealth will be in the conquests of the mind. He will achieve something of importance to the world by dint of close and patient study. It is a degree of cultivation.

Capella is in Conjunction with Mars

Capella gives honor, wealth, eminence, renown, a public position of trust and eminent friends, and makes its natives careful, highly inquisitive, very fond of knowledge and particularly of novelties.
