Christian Heinrich Heineken (German child prodigy)

* Christian Heinrich Heineken was known as "the infant scholar of Lübeck." When he was eight weeks old, he could speak German. He read the Pentateuch at age one, and between the ages of two and three, he read the Old and New Testament in Latin. When he was three years old, he was said to have authored A History of Denmark and recited it when visiting the King of Denmark later the same year. He died on 27 June 1725 at age four of coeliac disease.

Mercury in Capricorn is on the South Node in the first house indicating a prodigious intellect carried over from a previous life and brought to the fore. Moreover, Mercury is aspected by all three major outer planets: squared by Uranus and in a T-square with Neptune and Pluto. These planets were undiscovered in his short lifetime but it seems that he tapped into their energy anyhow.

Augustus II the Strong, Elector of Saxony

* Augustus II the Strong is famous for his great physical strength which earned him the nicknames "the Strong," "the Saxon Hercules" and "Iron-Hand." He lived up to his name by breaking horseshoes with his bare hands. That's certainly an interesting expression of Mars opposite Pluto. Augustus was also a voracious womanizer, bedding a string of mistresses over several decades and fathering as many as 382 children. His philandering Jupiter-Moon conjunction in Cancer is propelled by an opposition from Mars in Capricorn which also rules Venus in Aries on his North Node.

Hans-Adam II, Prince of Liechtenstein

* Hans-Adam II, the current monarch of Liechtenstein, has a family fortune valued in the billions, making him one of the world's richest heads of state, and Europe's wealthiest monarch. Neptune in the 2nd House hasn't dissipated his wealth. Instead, Venus in opposition in the 8th (ruling an acquisitive Taurus MC) has apparently helped make him a billionaire. The prince also holds authority to make the highest governmental decisions. When it comes to indicators of Plutocratic wealth and power never underestimate a descending Sun when its unaspected and ruling Ascendant and Pluto in Leo, with Pluto opposite Mars.

Nawal El Saadawi (Egyptian feminist writer, activist, physician, psychiatrist)

* Nawal El Saadawi has written many books on the subject of women in Islam, paying particular attention to the practice of female genital mutilation in her society. She has a stellium of planets in genital Scorpio (including surgical Mars) all ruled by mutilator Pluto in feminist Cancer high in the sky.

BIRTH DATA: 27 October 1931, 04:00 (4AM) EET (-2), Banha, Egypt (30n28, 31e11). ASC: 5 Libra. RR: A (from memory). SOURCE: Sy Scholfield cites her retelling of her grandmother's account of her birth in "A Daughter of Isis: The Autobiography of Nawal El Saadawi" by Nawal El Saadawi (Spinifex, 2000), pp. 18-20: "With the first light of dawn creeping through the night of that month of October, before the sun came up ... with the last stroke of four dropping like a dying gasp from the ancient clock on the wall, rose a cry ... of a woman in labour which went through the night just once. Then there was a long heavy silence, as though both the woman and the child had died. ... after that one and only shriek ... the dark obstinate head thrust out slowly ... [and the baby went] out into the world as quickly as it could."

Conchita Wurst (Austrian singer, fashion designer, gender illusionist)

* In May 2014 Conchita Wurst (AKA Tom Neuwirth) won the Eurovision Song Contest in Copenhagen with the song "Rise Like a Phoenix." An apt song title for her Scorpio stellium, including Sun conjunct Pluto. The gorgeous Conchita has Taurus rising ruled by Venus conjunct the Moon in Libra, surely showing excellent prospects for her fashion design career. With her trademark beard, she has an unusual appearance that challenges traditional concepts of gender and sexuality: Uranus in the 8th House quincunxes her Ascendant and in turn is ruled by Jupiter in her 1st House.

BIRTH DATA: Thomas Neuwirth, 6 November 1988, 17:00 (5 PM) MET (-1), Gmunden, Austria (47n55, 13e48). ASC: 24 Taurus. RR: A (from mother's memory). SOURCE: Sy Scholfield quotes Tom/Conchita's mother Helga Neuwirth in the Austrian documentary, "Conchita Wurst: To Eurovision" (ORF, 2014; viewed on SBS2 TV, Australia, 5 June 2014, English subtitles), in which she says that she was in labour with Tom/Conchita for 12 hours "from 5 a.m. to 5 p.m."

Michael Zühlke‏ (German pornstar)

* What does a guy need to become a pornstar? Michael Zühlke‏ (alias Pornfighter Long John) has a 23.5 cm (9.25 inch) genital appendage which no doubt helped, but certainly so did his Scorpio stellium including Mars in the 9th House. Sagittarius and the 9th are all about abundance and excess. Zühlke‏ has Pisces on his ascendant ruled by Neptune in Sagg in the 9th: he has performed in or produced 2300 erotic films. Venus on the MC in Sagittarius can translate into physical intimacy with a lot of young females. Zühlke claims to have had sex with 4888 women, many times in gang-bangs. For the sheer sake of pleasure, Jupiter in Taurus (in mutual reception with Venus on the MC) can make for one very happy and very lucky guy. And perhaps also, a very worn out one!

BIRTH DATA: Michael Zühlke, 10 November 1976, 14:30 (2:30 pm) CET (-1), Berlin, Germany (52n30, 13e22). ASC: 19 Pisces. RR: B (from autobiography). SOURCE: Sy Scholfield quotes "23,5 cm harte Arbeit: Mein Leben als erfolgreichster deutscher Pornodarsteller" by Michael Zühlke and Christoph Brandhurst (Riva Verlag, 2012): "Der 10. November 1976. ... Nicht länger als nötig wollten sie im Kreißsaal der Berliner Charité herumstehen und noch viel weniger am nächsten Tag, ... um 14.30 Uhr, kam ich zur Welt." Abridged translation: On November 10, 1976 in the delivery room of the Berlin Charité (hospital), I came into the world at 14.30 o'clock.

Peaches Geldof, 1989-2014 (English journalist, TV presenter, model)

* According to news of Peaches Geldof's birth, she was born at night. That is all that I can find about her time of birth. A speculative time of 9 p.m. is right between sundown that day (6 p.m.) and midnight, giving Libra rising. When she died on 7 April 2014 under a Grand Cross, transiting Pluto was conjunct her Neptune-Saturn and the transiting Uranus-Sun conjunction straddled her natal Eris (and maybe also her Descendant?).
