Birth Time for Julian Assange

True to the spirit of the time (and the Uranus station), several days ago TMA received an (unsolicited) exact birth time for Julian Assange.

Our source has requested anonymity, which we are respecting. Both Tem and I felt that the circumstances through which we got the information, and some other details, suggest that this is an authentic time. The source personally viewed, but was not able to make a copy of, Mr. Assange’s birth certificate.

Update: our source clarified what s/he saw: “The birth record (is) from the registry which has appended to it a copy of the birth certificate but the hour was not on the certificate but on the record in the registry files.”

Because of ink that was a bit smeared, there is a question of whether the time of birth was 2:05 pm, 2:06 pm. or 2:08 pm on July 3, 1971, in Townsville, Queensland, Australia (19S09 146E48).

I’ll just make a few quick comments, and open it up for you all to chime in with your fine ideas. What a story!

Birth data for Julian Assange: July 3, 1971; 2:05 pm; Townsville, Queensland

First of all, take a look at the chart for the solar arc directions that Tem noticed right away.

Assange bi-wheel

Uranus is a big player in Mr. Assange’s birth chart (it squares the Sun) and has come precisely to the Ascendant.

Mr. Assange’s MC/IC axis 6º12’ Leo/Aquarius; the U.S. nodal axis is 6º36’ Leo/Aquarius.

Julian Assange has 17º08’ Scorpio rising. His co-rulers are Mars and Pluto. In the past few days, transiting Mars has been opposing natal Venus  (ruler of 7th of open enemies) and squaring natal Pluto. His progressed Ascendant is 24º16’ Sag; Mars crossed that degree on November 29.

His prenatal solar eclipse is 6º09’ Pisces; the Sibly progressed Moon is now 6º08’ Pisces (which of course, we can see without a birth time).

The A*C*G map for 2:05 p.m. shows Pluto – IC through Sweden (but if done “in mundo” it shifts away from Sweden) and Sun line goes through London and Paris.  Venus – IC runs through Washington, D.C.

There’s lots more to say, and we look forward to your comments.

  • Jamie, good points. The first question may be a word choice issue. And I wonder if they currently no longer attach certificates to the record with the birth time on it, but maybe they used to in 1971? Hard to guess. Like I said, I am awaiting a response from the source to questions I recently e-mailed.

  • Birth certificates in Queensland are done by the district register of births deaths and marrigers. not the hospitals.

  • Birth certificates in Australia simply have nothing to do with hospitals. I have never heard of any hospital in Australia keeping copies of birth certificates.

  • Mary this chart is obviously incorrect whay are you unable to acknowledge that?????

    • in response to mic jor from Dec 9:

      this is a big discovery on-going research project..I am not holding on to the correctness of the chart, we’ve just offered the data to the community and we are all investigating…

  • Sy says that Christine, Julian’s mother, surname was not Assange but she goes by Assange NOW.

    The father’s name is Brett Assange:

  • Sorry, stepfather.

  • Sorry again – there’s no delete button for my stream of consciousness thoughts. So Julian was presumably not Assange at birth, so how would the informant have been able to find the birth record?

  • Lynn, that’s what I’m asking the source…awaiting the reply. May have been a chronological search method. We’ll see,

  • In the Chinese Feng Shui advanced astrology of Qi Men Dun Jia, Assange’s Birth Chart features the White Tiger Goes Wild structured situation, which portends bloody violence against women.

    The same structured situation holds for the moment of his domain registration for Wiki Leaks, as if he used Wiki Leaks as a way to attract women with whom he might dominate through violent sex.

    White Tiger Goes Wild was also the portent for the time period when Nicole Brown Simpson was murdered on 12 June 1994 along with Ron Goldman, so imagine that scene and you know what the White Tiger Goes Wild looks like.

  • Sorry to be getting this to you in bits and pieces, but I didn’t want to overwhelm our source with a long list of questions in one e-mail.
    This may be the last e-mail I get, as there are signs he/she may be feeling harassed a bit or maybe just frustrated at not being able to satisfy our thirst for detail.
    (It leads one to speculate: who is getting the more intense interrogation today, Assange or this source? 🙂
    Anyway, here is what the source answered when I asked about the mother’s maiden name and how the record was located, given the possibility that the baby or the mother or both were not named “Assange” at birth:

    “now, that is good question. but to which I have no (satisfying) answer to give you. Imagine that I was in a place where I was not supposed to be. I saw Christine, I saw Julian Paul Assange but I can not remember seeing any other name, I even believe that it was “Christine Assange” right there, but now that you mention it, I think I may have been disturbed by the emotions when looking for the hour of birth and trying to figure out between the 5, 6 or 9, and I can not recall seeing a maiden name or any other name for that matter, so I will not even give it a try…… the search I made was part luck, part knowing his birth date since some of the file holders have the year written on the side. I am so sorry that I can not give you what you seek. Talk to Christine and I really believe all your problems will be solved in one second because without a copy of the records, I understand that what I say lacks some of the credibility….. until you talk to Christine I have nothing else to add to what I already gave you.”

    Of course, I thanked the source for being generous in his/her responses.
    I guess one of the Australians among us might need to talk to Christine, Assange’s mother, for confirmation. The good thing is, if Assange’s mother can’t remember the exact time but thinks it was in the afternoon around 2 or 2:30, then we know the range would be from 2:05 to 2:08 pm.
    If any of you do, I trust you will post here for our readers. Thanks, all.

  • Barbara Ferrara says:

    Further to my comment earlier about the aspects that Assange has in common with George Washington, I am now thinking that Assange’s horoscope should be considered from the speculative “Whole Earth Tropical Zodiac”.

    This idea was originally suggested by astrologer Dane Rudhyar to overcome the problem of Southern Hemisphere charts not being in sync with earth’s seasonal changes, for which the signs of the Zodiac were named when they were first used as a calender in the Northern Hemisphere.

    In this “bipolar” Zodiac, there are actually only 6 double signs instead of 12 single ones. A person born in Spring in the Northern Hemisphere, as an Aries, would actually be a Libran if born on the same day in the Southern Hemisphere, where it would be autumn/fall.

    All the other planets/bodies would also change their signs to the opposite polarity or Aries-Libra, Taurus-Scorpio etc, with the polarity being equal at the Equator. The further someone was born from the equator in latitude, the more polarized towards one sign they would be.

    Using this system, Julian Assange would actually be a Capricorn Sun – or at least polarized towards the Capricorn side of Cancer-Capricorn, not a Cancerian. His Uranus would be in Aries, his Pluto in Pisces, Chiron in Libra, and his Ascendant would be Taurus, not Scorpio.

    As mentioned earlier, Assange shares several aspects with revolutionary founder of the U.S. George Washinton, but when we swap his ascendant to Taurus, he actually has almost the same ascendant as America’s first president! Just like Washington, Assange did not start the revolution – with America it was people like Thomas Jefferson and Paine who laid the ground work – but he is the fighter for many of the ideals of a new world consciousness.

    I will be giving a talk about the Whole Earth “bipolar” Tropical Zodiac at this months Los Angeles NCGR meeting.

  • Hi everyone,

    Wow! When this email first came to me I knew it was a big, exciting, hugely impactful and meaningful bit of data for all of us to begin to toss around..

    And, look how gorgeously, creatively, playfully, seriously and deeply you all have taken it..

    Here’s to the Uranus station and shared surprise, discovery and delight.

    I honestly can’t wait to participate more here – I have been very, very full on with clients and other TMA projects..

    But, truly, many thanks to one and all, and I join you all in hoping that our shared embrace for Mr. Assange’ work and plight be part of a good outcome for one and all..

  • We haven’t heard from any Vedic astrologers yet on nakshatras, dashas, or chart rectification for this purported time of birth. Are you out there?

  • Aries Dobbs says:

    We need to send Christine a messenger pigeon.

  • Martin Stock says:

    ASSANG George Franklin Death notice 31JUL1997 Age at Death 70 late of Terara Sydney Morning Herald 02AUG1997
    and for Vic Sabrino –
    SABRINO Vic see ASSANG, George Franklin Sydney Morning Herald 02AUG1997

    George Assang was a musician, jazz singer, rock and roller and actor and had a starring role in Barrier Reef, a TV series (one season) that aired on Ten, Feb 12 1971 – Apr 2 1972 and was filmed around the Barrier Reef Queensland. The production schedule prior to airing for the series would have placed him in the right place to father Julian. He was, in 1970, 43 years old.
    He’s probably the best candidate for fatherhood.
    And thanks Aries for the dob for the bad actors in all of this. Claes Borgstrom’s an especially disturbing chart.

  • Aries Dobbs says:

    Google image/web search turns up George Assang. Very interesting.Something to ponder. Thanks Martin.

  • Hi Folks,

    This is amazing stuff and we await the next updates with bated breath! I have approached the chart from the past-life perspective at Silk Road Visions, and I had just posted articles on Aquarius so really tuned in to Assange as strongly Aquarian! (Come have a read when you get a chance)..

    I see the feminine energy to be vital in his chart with Lilith conjunct Pluto and Uranus with (by extension) all 3 squaring Venus (which in turn is trine his Aquarian Mars)…and if you use the Equal House with the Scorpio Asc you get both the Sun and poor Venus in the 8th house! How perfect is that for an International Man of Mystery in a possible honey trap with two women? I have read detailed reports now of the encounters, and I think “abuse” would be a stretch, but Uranian, unorthodox, Aquarian, dissociated, yes…

    Re the likelihood of the Scorpio ascendant – I just did a chart for a gal with Scorpio Rising (Pluto conjunct) and she was 6 feet tall, extremely pale, all Goth..

    Even without knowing the Ascendant, however, the Mars and North Node (and by some calculations the Part of Fortune) being in Aquarius, resonating to a Greek-tinged Uranus in Libra square to both Sun and Venus (through the conjunction) really gives us a lot to work with. Thanks for all your hard work here! Carol

  • Hello again!

    I would like to correct something I wrote in the previous post: Julian actually seems to have had two stepfathers, not one as I assumed before. The first was a theatre director (Brett Assange?) and the second was a musician affiliated with the cult of that crazy lady who stole children and dyed their hair blond(!) – I forget her name at the moment. His mother married the musician in 1979, had a child with him, supposedly lived with him at the cult place and then ran away in 1982 with the children and was on the run for 5 years.
    I also found this on the net, which explains how the Ah Sang surname went to Assang and then Assange:

    I would also like to call your attention to the fact that one of Julian’s most striking features is his strong and quite beautiful baritone voice – did you listen to George Assang’s singing voice in the video?

    That’s all for now and wishing you the best of sleuthing.

  • Just one more thing – it seems to me that Julian is the spitting image of his mother…

    so it will be difficult to find his father by his looks (apart from the fact, that he probably wouldn’t be the shortest man on the planet, since Julian is so tall)

  • Hi everyone, sorry, I have been busy today. Thank you all for your info and help. I already have a local news item reporting that his mother was a “single mum” at birth so I have been working on that premise for some time. Yes, I am working with the maiden name of Hawkins, re: birth notice searches, etc.

    I texted Mr. Assange’s mother requesting his time of birth before making any comments on this blog or elsewhere. She has not replied to my message. The text was sent just days before her son’s arrest, so it is hardly surprising that there has been no answer to date. I didn’t mean to be disrespectful toward his mother by contacting her at that time. Maybe I should have paid more attention to what was unfolding, but if you don’t ask you will never get an answer. I mentioned sending the text on my Aussie Stars website and texted her the URL so she could check that I was fair dinkum. I am not pursuing this matter further just now, if at all, because I think the family has a right to privacy. Ms. Assange is probably on a plane from Brisbane to London, if not already there. She has been open to interviews by the media, and I think she would give out her son’s time of birth, but if so we will have to wait to see if she replies. Try and imagine how she must be feeling at the moment. Her son’s time of birth is probably the last thing on her mind.

  • Martin, thanks very much for the George Assang lead. I will see what I can dig up about him.

  • Sanaa, yes media reports have stated that ‘Assange’ comes from the anglicisation of a Chinese surname. This is not uncommon in Queensland. My paternal grandmother’s father was Chinese, and he came to be known by the single name of “Tanwan.” After the Californian gold rush, Australia became known to the Chinese as “New Gold Mountain” and many headed to Victoria then Queensland, seeking gold. I think my grandmother’s mother was born to a Chinese immigrant father at the gold rush town of Calliope, QLD, in the 1870s. Her mother’s name, Livy/Levy is given on the BC, but not her Chinese father’s, possibly because the registrar officer did not know how to anglicise it. On her death certificate it had became “Tanwan.” But I’m having a lot of trouble tracking down his death certificate, etc, because officially he may have been nameless. 🙁

  • any hurrah’s Aries Dobbs on finding the son’s birth date – excellent. Sun Aquarius is the father’s signature, unusually it is either unaspected (I use only 6 deg. orbs even for important conjunctions) or for those giving a greater orb, it is hooked into the incredible 7 planet Capricorn stellium that Daniel has. Actually if the Marsin Sag (at 27) is allowed in too, only Pluto and Jupiter would be not counted into the stellium! pretty exceptional don’t you think? Saturn in its own sign, closely conjunct Moon/Venus and the son with his Mars/Jupiter opposition echoes Julian’s Mars/Jup(Ur) square. According to Charles Carter that is the most reckless aspect anyone can have in their chart, the risk quotient being high…….Daniel’s progressedMercury conjuncts his Sun presently which seems very fitting……..I do start to wonder with the powerful Mercury in Julian’s chart if he actually has a Gemini ascendant, I see that planet as the most powerful in his chart
    Daniels’ pro Sun is at 27 Aq, with transit Neptune on it, his progressed Moon is moving towards a conj to natal Pluto (so this must be exceptionally difficult for his mother)….. Daniel (allowing for the fact that a proper birth time may change this) has exceptionally few Sun aspects,(the mother image being very bombarded in the middle of the stellium) except a semi-sextile to….Uranus! Also the son’s chart has only one fire planet, 1 air, whereas earth has 6, 2 in water…..thus I would guess the mother is a very earthy lady. Riveting stuff, posters….

  • I just looked up the meaning of the name Julian it means youthful = Mercury So (thinking a lot of his life sounds very Mercurial, I put that on the ascendant – however, Julian also means’ Joves Child apparently – his Mercury does trine Jup(Nep) so perhaps he has late Cancer rising with that aspect smack on the ascendant? Someone mentioned he has two children, this chart would have Sag as the 5th ruler.

  • Sorry, formatting of my last post was not intended but automatically altered by this sites scripts.

    My main working field is astrological research on “mental disorders”, mainly ADHD and Borderline, but also other PDs. – His chance, to have ADHD is close to certainty.

  • Hello Sy,

    Have you already tried this site? I found three contemporary Tanwan death certificates – could they be descendants of your chinese ancestor? Just type the Tanwan surname in the search window…

    And here are lots of Queensland Tanwans that could be your relatives. Perhaps you could start by trying to contact their descendants – they might have info on your great-great grandad!

    The best of luck.

  • Sy, here’s also some Tanwan family trees, but you’d have to pay in order to view them fully…

  • I had to hunt all over the internet for some of the information, so I am not revealing anything of a secret nature. Daniel Assange’s chart has an aspect that might help him to mellow out when things get rough. His Mars in Sagittarius opposes his Jupiter in Cancer, and I believe that he wants a harmonious family life, and home very much.(Mars opp Jupiter covets) Venus conjunct Saturn in his Solar 12th house might indicate an older alpha female who has, or will have a great influence on him. I believe that more family members will come forward in various ways in order to stand up for Julian. I saw a video last night that featured Brett Assange. (Julian’s step father) Don’t we love mysteries ? Anyway, I am on Julian’s side. He’s shown the world that no corrupt governments should make life miserable for the rest of us.

  • @moderator: please erase my 2nd last post, I’ve changed the formatting of my calculations, to better fit this board. (see further below)

    I (11th of July 1972, 12:30pm, Duisburg Germany) for myself am a double cancer with gemini venus and sun square uranus (with uranus sitting 1° past my AC). I’m diagnosed ADHD and am researching on ADHD and BPD, from an astrological point of view (with psychiatric patients and online). My concept on BPD seems to be statistically safe (by 1 : more than a trillion). – Things I can say on Assanges chart:

    – He has ADHD – mostly hyperactive type – (close to certainty).
    – His IQ should be above 125
    – He almost certainly is a bit paranoid
    – He could be a bit neurotic (the “counting tiles on the wall” type)
    – He’s nearly unable, to have longer relationships and possibly is bi-sexual orientated.
    – He most likely is anxious (beeing alone in the dark among other fears).

    There’s more to say (a lot about his sexual preferences), but that’s nothing for this forum (at least not at this time).
