The astrology charts of twins have long fascinated astrology lovers. We’re eager to hear about the ways their lives parallel one another—and the ways they don’t. Except for c-section births, they’re generally born at least half an hour apart and sometimes considerably more. Astrologers have studied their charts with a variety of techniques.
Date Twins—and How to Find Yours
Would you like to know if anyone famous was born the same day you were? One simple way is to go to Wikipedia’s main page, put your full date of birth into the search engine and add “births”. You may be surprised to see who is listed.
Among other notables, I found out that there was an Italian Archbishop born the same day I was. Thank God for the road not taken! I guess I know when my Jupiter is outclassed!
Digging into Twin Charts–Twin Funeral Directors
The most fascinating set of twin charts I ever encountered were the identical twin morticians who arranged my father’s funeral. We were all from out of town and spent days with these charming, kindly brothers, so I got to know them well. Their lovely wives cooked a delicious home-style lunch for our relatives and friends who’d traveled from our home town for the funeral.
Those of you who met my Dad in a post a few weeks ago can appreciate that I had a bunch of issues left to resolve about him, so I was quite verklempt at the time. Nonetheless, Plutonian type that I am, I had the presence of mind to get the morticians’ birth data to study later. I also grilled them about the ways their lives were the same (other than working on embalming the same bodies together daily) and the ways they were different. That was a very long time ago, so I don’t have the data any more, but I do recall the major chart factor that showed the differences between their lives.
The parallels were that they were in business together, they’d both been athletes in high school, and they’d both married sweet ladies named Jean who worked in the funeral business with them. Their oldest sons were born on the same date, and I’d wager they were born in the same hospital, since there’s only one in Newton, Iowa.
Both had Mars in Virgo in the first, one with Mars right on the Ascendant, the other with it a few degrees away. The one with Mars closest to the Ascendant had these differences in life experience:
- he’d been in the army while the other had not, and
- he’d had cancer of the colon and had a colostomy bag.
If there ever was any doubt about which twin was born first and thus the elder, this set of factiods would resolve it. His Mars was the stronger, and Mars is the indicator of the military and of surgery, while Virgo rules the intestines. I don’t even recall their names, but I won’t forget that Mars!
