I’ve been enjoying a new documentary series on Netflix called Wild Wild Country, which tells the many-faceted tale of the short-lived Oregon city of Rajneeshpuram, a former 100-square mile ranch repurposed into a small, revolution-focused city in devotion to Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh.
Rajneesh was born on the 11th of December, 1931, at 5:13 PM in Bhopal, India.
Noteworthy in the natal chart of Rajneesh:
- an abundance of out-of-bounds Capricorn planets: the Moon, Mercury, Venus, and Mars are all out of bounds here, marking Rajneesh as a wonderful subject for a post, and of course an interest to me! These planets are gathered between his Sagittarius Sun and Capricorn Saturn and distributed in the 7th and 8th houses.
- an angular Sun, within five degrees of the DC
- Uranus conjunct Lilith at 14/15 Aries in the 11th house (of course, Mercury has just stationed retrograde at 16 Aries and I just so happen to be researching the bones off this fella.), square his Moon/Venus conjunction
- Neptune at 7 Virgo in the 4th house, trine Mercury (6 Capricorn) and within 7 degrees of the IC. This is a very magnetic Neptune. I mean, look at this man’s eyes. Just beautiful. Transfixing.
- Vertex at 3 Scorpio–remember this for later.
At some point (and I should really get the Rajneesh book so I can know exactly when), the Bhagwan relocated to Pune, India, and from there created a large ashram that was shared with his followers. Here is Rajneeshes’s natal chart relocated to Pune:
