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.

    Let me get this straight – an anonymous source divulged this information, and there are questions about how it was obtained? Yep – it was WikiLeaked, all right!

  • Even without the exact time of birth, I am having fun watching Julian’s transits. His life is hopping right now all over the airwaves, so I can safely say “never a dull moment.” For an experiment, I am using zero Capricorn as his ascendant until the actual time of birth is confirmed. “We Open Governments.” I feel like I am holding a lottery ticket waiting for the actual time of birth, or the closest thing to it. 🙂

  • I know that his birth time isn’t certain, but the proposed chart looks a lot like a guy doing what he does.

    I think he is fiercely independent (Sun square Uranus)

    Very idealistic (Jupiter conjunct Neptune) and willing to fight the authorities for what he believes (Jupiter/Neptune opposite Saturn and square Mars). A warrior of both information and technology (Mars in Aquarius) who is will aggressively communicate his values (Venus in Gemini trine Mars) to the collective (Aquarius). And is also willing to die for what he believes (Mars square Jupiter in Scorpio and Neptune in Sag along with Scorpio Moon in the 12th and Scorpio rising)

    He was also born at the time of the very tight applying Uranus/Neptune septile (within 15 minutes). This aspect only occurs every 180 years and was the forerunner to the Uranus/Neptune conjunction that we had in the late 80’s early 90’s. That conjunction defines the internet age and the septile shows that he would embody that energy and do something ahead of his time that is subversive and be about violence (septile) and it would be both revolutionary (Uranus) and enlightening (Neptune).

    He is an individual that is certainly embodying the anarchistic side of the current Uranus/Pluto square.

    I would also point out that at the time of the Iraqi bombing video leak he had transiting Mars sitting on his MC and Mercury squaring Mars and his MC along with transiting Jupiter trining his ASC. When the Wikileaks site was registered he had transiting Jupiter at his proposed ASC. This may not be definitive, but other transits do work well with this chart.

  • Hi

    I note Assange has signed a book deal that wil net him millions just as Venus passes over this proposed Ascendant. It’s still looking like the right chart. The story is dated 26th – think the signature was before Xmas but near enough to 17 Scorpio


  • friends,

    There is a Wikileaks astrological summary i did here:

    i have also published as a follow up to that, a review of Assange’s hypothetical Aquarius rising chart at my website:

    I have incorporated a few of your observations about other rising sign possibilities into the essay.

  • I had this birth time question for some time on my mind, no answers, yet. This discussion clearly tells it is not an easy find.In Vedic Astrology rectification is done by looking at several important life events, if we captured them in real time, then a solution might occur. I heard others had solved a similar problem using this approach. Any comments from experts?

  • Perhaps Christine Assange will tell us in 2011. It can’t do any harm to share the information with a group of friendly astrologers. I only wish Julian the absolute best in life. I am not looking for skeletons in his closet unless he’s the one bringing them out into the light for a dance. Not all skeletons have bad intentions.

  • Happy New Year to everyone!

    My article on Julian Assange and WikiLeaks is now available at my website:
    Click on Articles on my Home Page (upper left) and scroll down. It will also be published at Saptarishis Astrology magazine On-line. (Please note: There is one correction on the btm. of the last page. It should read May 2012, not May 2014, when Assange’s Sub-period improves. This correction will be made when my webmaster is available again after the holidays.)
