Romulus and Remus

While looking up the astrology chart for filmmaker Quentin Tarantino on astrotheme I saw that Quentin's got the same birth date as the founders of Rome, Romulus and Remus. As Classics was one of my failed majors in College I sort of remembered that these two twins were suckled by a wolf. The finer details of the political foundations of Rome were completely lost on me. I also sort of remembered that the story about them was a fabricated myth. In normal circumstances a wolf would probably eat a set of twins. Maybe the meat is just too fatty, especially with these little water sign punks. But, I went to school a long time ago and as I've said before I flunked my way up the California Coast. And, what with Wikipedia fabricating for us viral forms of b.s. at every turn who knows what is real anymore?

Anyway, it's super duper fascinating that Astrotheme lists the date, even with a birth time (around sun up, that's convenient). I totally doubt it's accurate but I'm going to read the chart anyway.

Romulus (founder of Rome after he killed his twin brother Remus)
b. Mar. 27, -770 5:10 am Rome, Italy

Sun 29 Pisces Moon 29 Cancer; ASC 2 Pisces; MC 16 Sagittarius; NN 26 Taurus

He killed his brother. Wow. Mean.

So, first thing I wanted to check for were the "twin brother indicators".

Mercury, ruler of twins, in this chart is conjunct the Pisces Ascendant and Pisces' ruler, Neptune. The Ascendant shows the physical body and the moment of birth. (This chart is obviously phoney, but I'm loving it).

Neptune rules all things wild. It also rules orphans. These were love children, or at least their Father didn't want them and they were known as "Feral." In Myth, the God Aries is said to be their Father. In reality, they had Sun conjunct Saturn so their Father just wasn't into them. Don't know what his brother's chart looked like, but Romulus' Sun-Saturn conjunction is very close to the Aries Point and is placed in the first house. (This chart is so bogus, it's just too obvious). 1st House Saturn people have to grow complaining about how Daddy didn't love them. Often Grandparents do love them, though, and make sure that they are showered with physical comfort. Sometimes the Father will work out his issues, but that's probably more a recent thing, and not for Catholics so much because they don't like to get divorces.

Interesting also, the twin indicator is in double whammy force because Mercury, ruler of twins, is not only conjunct the Ascendant and the ruler of the Ascendant but is squaring Mars (boys) in Gemini in the 3d House (twins, siblings). Guess this could also double as a fraticide indicator although that's probably not a useful interpretation to use with one's clients. These guys were born while Pluto was in Cancer so the traditional family structure was going through the ringer, similar to the one that we all went through in the 60s and 70s.

So, I also wanted to look up the thing where the boys are suckled by a wolf. I was always perfectly happy with the literal image but I guess there's more to the story. First of all, we've got the Pluto in Cancer. That shows a whole generation or two of people who like to howl at the Moon.

The actual Moon in this chart is on a last degree of Cancer opposing Uranus in Capricorn and squaring Venus 30 Aries. It looks like Mom, like Dad, wasn't into the twins either. And, according to Wikipedia the Wolf wasn't really a wolf, but a prostitute. And according to Adrian Duncan Ross, (do I have his names backwards again?) Moon-Uranus contacts can indicate a prostitute mother. Uranus likes the freedom of an independent lifestyle, build it and they will come kind of business sense, and women don't really have all that many other options for entrepreneurship in written histories. So, it makes sense that Mom would enjoy the freedoms that a prostitute has. Not real good for the self esteem probably, and generally leads to drug and alcohol abuse, but nobody ever figures that out until it's too late for some reason.

So, what does this have to do with Quentin Tarantino? Nothing. But, Fergie is also born on this date. And so is Mariah Carey. Pretty cool, huh?

I am confused. Wouldn't a 3/27 birthday be an Aries?

Yes, CA, it might. As I said, I can't vouch for the chart I was using. But, I also suspect that in 770 BC the cusps were not where they are today due to the precession of the equinoxes. Don't have a clue really. I didn't double check the chart with astrotheme's ephemeris. Maybe I should do that, huh?
