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.
