This is how I rectified the natality of Nat Turner – I used Wikipedia and another site as for the timeline of his life. I pulled his chart up & I considered the physical traits used to describe our great bro. Nat turner… as I read the article at wiki … & this is what I used to begin the 8th place method (8 p.m.) To establish the ascending sign for our great fore bearer Nat Turner:
”…After the rebellion, a reward notice described Turner as: 5 feet 6 or 8 inches high, weighs between 150 and 160 pounds, rather bright complexion, but not a mulatto, broad shoulders, larger flat nose, large eyes, broad flat feet, rather knock-kneed, walks brisk and active, hair on the top of the head very thin, no beard, except on the upper lip and the top of the chin, a scar on one of his temples, also one on the back of his neck, a large knot on one of the bones of his right arm, near the wrist, produced by a blow…” QUOTE IS AN EXCERPT FROM https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nat_Turner
I CONSIDERED THE SIGNS THAT ”OWN” THESE TRAITS AS WELL AS THE ASPECTS INDICATING SCARS AND WHAT CAUSE OF WOUNDS THAT MAY EXIST AS USUAL
FLAT NOSED = TAURUS GEMINI LEO LIBRA SAGITTARIUS AQUARIUS (ASCENDING)
KNOCK KNEED = TAURUS OR LIBRA (ASCENDING)
– HAIR THINNING ON TOP = TAURUS GEMINI CANCER LEO VIRGO LIBRA (ASCENDING)
– SCAR ON THE TEMPLES = ARIES IN THE 8TH , MARS IN THE FIRST OR MARS IN TURBULENT ASPECT
– SCAR ON BACK OF NECK = LIBRA IN THE 8TH , VENUS IN THE 8TH , VENUS IN TURBULENT ASPECT
– BONE INJURY RIGHT FORE ARM = CANCER ASC = SCORPIO 5TH), BREAK OR FRACTURE = URANUS IN THE COZMIC 3RD PLACE (3RD VIRGO = CANCER ASC)
OR GEMINI IN THE 8TH = SCORPIO ASC , MERCURY IN TURBULENT ASPECT … OR … SATURN IN THE THIRD LEO (GEMINI RISING)
I KEPT THESE (AND OTHER MINOR FACTORS) IN MIND AS TOYED WITH EACH ASC SIGN’S DEGREES AND CROSS ANALYZED & REFERENCED HIS LIFE EVENTS TO THE 2NDARY PROGRESSED CHARTS WHICH CORRESPOND WITH SUCH LIFE EVENTS… WHERE … UTILIZING ”THE 8 P.M.” TO DETERMINE HIS ASC FROM THE REPORT… I WAS INCLINED (AT FIRST) TO TAURUS ASC… BUT NONE OF THE TAUREAN ASCENDANT DEGREES ”FIT” THE SECONDARY PROGRESSED CHARTS CALCULATED TO ILLUSTRATE THE FINAL 6 MONTHS OF HIS LIFE … DIRECTLY UP TO THE DATE OF HIS DEATH (NOV 11th 1831).
THEN FROM HIS BIOGRAPHY I CONSTRUCTED A TIMELINE FROM 1 TO 32 YEARS (HE WAS 31 YEARS AND 40 DAYS OLD [31 REV + 40 DEGREES OF SOLAR TRANSIT] AT THE TIME OF HIS DEMISE) THAT’S 31.1111111 YEARS.
HERE IS HIS ”TIMELINE’ BIOGRAPHY
October 2, 1800 Nat Turner born
1810 Nat Turner was taken by his dead master’s brother Samuel Turner
1822 Nat Turner was sold to Thomas Moore after Samuel Turner, his owner died.
1825 Nat Turner had his first vision about freedom
May 12, 1828 Nat Turner had another vision ordaining his mission
August 13, 1831 Signs in the sky appeared that suggested to Nat Turner that he should prepare for the rebellion
August 20, 1831 Nat Turner asks Henry Porter and Hark Travis to help plan the revolt
August 21, 1831 Hark Travis, Henry Porter, Samuel Francis, Will Francis, Nelson Williams meet at a pond and cook a pig. They are joined by Nat Turner at 3 PM. They are prepared for war by Nat Turner. He assumes the title of General Cargill. Henry Porter becomes paymaster.
August 22, 1831 They leave around 2 AM to begin their attacks. They ride their horses at breakneck speed to create terror and to prevent escape from the slaveowners’ homes.
August 22, 1831 By noon, Nat Turner had sixty mounted men, ready to march on the village of Jerusalem. They killed 61 whites. They met first resistance from armed whites.
August 23, 1831 7AM Turner’s forces met armed slaveholders, more than 100 white men.
August 23, 1831 By 9 AM men are leaving Nat to return to the plantations. Many of them would later be killed.
October 30, 1831 Nat Turner was captured
November 5, 1831 Nat Turner was tried and found guilty.
November 11, 1831 He was executed and his body mutilated. More than 200 people were killed by whites in the aftermath.

FROM 9 TO 14 DEGREES TROPICAL LEO WORKS QUITE WELL FOR THE PROGRESSED CHART WHICH DEPICTS THE MOON CONJUNCTING MARS PERFECTLY IN TAURUS … FOR THIS ALIGNMENT DESCRIBES PERFECTLY THE ACT OF DECAPITATION … WHICH HIS CORPSE DID SUFFER . BUT REWINDING THE PROGRESS BACK TO THE DATE OF ”INSURRECTION” DID NOT ”FIT” … THE MOTION DID NOT MATCH THE MEANING IN ANY FASHION.AS I SEE … THEN I CONSIDERED THE FACT THE PROGRESSED CHART TO INSURRECTION WHICH STARTED WITH LEO… PUT JUPITER PARTILE THE ASCENDANT ON THE DATE OF THE REVOLT…. ”JUPITER” POINTS TO THOSE THINGS WHICH ARE ”UPWARD” ”HIGHER” OR ”FURTHER” … BY IT’S PLACE AS THE CHIEF INDICATOR FOR SAGITTARIUS (POINTING OR AIMING ”UP”) … THAT SEES HOW NAT TURNER AND HIS FOLLOWERS CAUSED ”UPHEAVAL” AN ”UP-ROAR” AND ”UP-RISING”.
(I LEAVE TO U THE PRACTITIONER … TO RESOLVE WITHIN YOURSELF WHICH ASCENDING BEST DESCRIBES AND BY ITS PROGRESSED MOTION BEST ILLUSTRATES THE EVENTS IN HIS LIFE… AS I ALREADY HAVE CHOSEN SCORPIO’S 22ND TO 23RD DEGREE … I STILL CONTEMPLATE THE POSSIBILITY O THE 14 DEGREE LEO RISING ‘NATALITY’ CHART AS WELL.
I CALCULATED IN ”PROGRESSED TIME” THE SPACE OF MEASURE BETWEEN THE EVENTS THAT I TOOK FROM HIS BIO TIMELINE.. AND I CALCULATED THAT :
THERE WERE 324 MINUTES OF PROGRESS EXIST BETWEEN HIS DEATH AND HIS REVOLT.
THERE WERE 48 MINUTES OF PROGRESSION EXISTING BETWEEN HIS CAPTURE AND HIS DEMISE.
I EXAMINED THE MEASURE BETWEEN ALL OF THESE AND FOUND ONLY TWO STRONG CASES …14*20′ DEGREES LEO AND … THE ASCENDANT I FINALLY SETTLED FOR WAS 22 DEGREES 04 MINUTES OF TROPICAL SCORPIO .
AS ALL I HAVE ARE THE ANNULS OF HISTORY TO RESORT TO … I TRUSTED ONLY THE DATES FOR INSURRECTION AND EXECUTION FOR APPLICATION AND ANALYSIS … AS THE REST OF HIS HISTORY WAS OBVIOUSLY FABRICATED OR EMBELLISHED .
OCTOBER 2nd 1800 @ 9:39 AM IN SUFFOLK VIRGINIA (AS IT WAS UNCLEAR WHICH TOWN IN THAT COUNTY HE WAS ACTUALLY FROM … ANY PLACE WITHIN 70 MILES PUTS IT WITHIN ONE DEGREE OF FLUCTUATING ERROR. THIS CHART ALLOWS THE PLANET MARS ”BY PROGRESSION” TO CROSS THE DESCENDANT WITHIN TWO DEGREES / DAYS OF THE DATE OF INSURRECTION (AUGUST 21ST 1831) WHICH BY THE WAY … LASTED FOR TWO DAYS … AND PROGRESSED HIS NATAL CHART TO NOVEMBER 2ND 1800 @ 6:55 AM TO OBSERVE THE ANGULAR MOTION IN THAT CHART AND FOUND P2 MRS P2 SATURN AND P2 PLUTO ANGULAR (SATURN BEING PARTILE) .

I TOYED , VERY MUCH, WITH THE IDEA AND THE ACTUAL MOTION OF AND THAT THE PLANET ”URANUS” SHOULD TOUCH ONE OF THE ANGLES … CORRESPONDING TO THE DATE OF REVOLT … AS TRADITIONALLY … ”URANUS” … IS THE INDICATOR OF ANY HIGHLY UNSTABLE SITUATION , REVOLT , RIOT , REBELLION , REVOLUTION , UPHEAVAL , CATASTROPHE OR SUDDENLY TRAGIC CIRCUMSTANCE …
BUT WHEN I PROGRESSED URANUS FROM ONE ANGLE TO THE NEXT ANGLE … THE REVERSE ENGINEERED CHART ALWAYS FELL TO OCT 1ST … THEY DAY BEFORE HIS RECORDED BIRTH. OBVIOUSLY ”URANUS” WAS HERE NOT TO BE UTILIZED .
THOUGH … I POSTULATE THAT THE BIRTH DATE THAT HISTORY RECORDS FOR HIM … MAY VERY WELL BE ”OFF” OR IN ACCURATE … CAUSE THE RECORD IS NEVER 100% ACCURATE … I AM WILLING TO PUT FORTH THE IDEA THAT THE RECORD HERE USED … DOES RESEMBLE THE MOTION THAT I FOUND TO BE ”CONCURRENT” WITH SCORPIO’S 22ND TO 23RD TH DEGREE (THE EXALTATION OF URANUS IN HERMETIC ASTROLOGY) … TO ACCURATELY ILLUSTRATE BY ITS MOTION THE EVENTS THAT TRANSPIRED IN THE LAST LIVING 3 MONTHS (6 HOURS OF PROGRESSED TIME) OF HIS SENTENCE IN ON THIS PLANE OF EVENTS.

ANOTHER REASON THAT I CHOSE THE SCORPIO ASC CHART FOR HIS NATALITY OVER THE LEO ASC CHART … IS PER THE 8th PLACE METHOD aka ”THE 8 P.M.” … LEO HAVE PISCES IN THE 8TH … AND NOTHING ”HISTORIC” SATISFIES ANY HEALING PROCESSES INVOLVING PISCES INDICATED ANATOMICAL PARTS OR BIO PROCESSES. WHERE AS THE INJURY TO HIS ARM ”SCREAMS” GEMINI IN THE 8TH … AND CONCURS ENTIRELY WITH THE MATHEMATICAL PROCESS INVOLVED .
MIND U … I UTILIZED THE SOLARFIRE 8 PROGRAM TO CALCULATE EVERY CHART AND ASTRODEINST TO TO MAKE THE CHARTS U SEE HERE POSTED …. ASTRODEINST AND SOLARFIRE DIFFER BY 6 MINUTES REGARDING THESE MOTIONS … SO THE NOTES U SEE ME TAKING ARE SOLRFIRE BASED … AND THE CHARTS I HERE POST ARE ASTRODEINST GENERATED .
THE FOLLOWING ARTICLE WAS COPY & PASTED FROM WIKIPEDIA .
Nat Turner (October 2, 1800 – November 11, 1831) was an African-American slave who led a slave rebellion of slaves and free blacks in Southampton County, Virginia on August 21, 1831 that resulted in 60 white deaths. He led a group of other slave followers carrying farm implements on a killing spree. As they went from Plantation to Plantation they gathered horses, guns, freed other slaves along the way, and recruited other blacks that wanted to join their revolt. At the end of their rebellion they were accused of the deaths of fifty white people.Virginia legislators also targeted free blacks with a colonization bill, which allocated new funding to remove them, and a police bill that denied free blacks trials by jury and made any free blacks convicted of a crime subject to sale and relocation. Whites organized militias and called out regular troops to suppress the rising. In addition, mobs attacked blacks in the area killing an estimated total of 100-200, many not involved at all with the revolt.In the aftermath, the state quickly arrested and executed 57 blacks accused of being part of Turner’s slave rebellion. An estimated 200 blacks were killed by white militias and mobs, often after having been beaten. Turner hid successfully for two months. When found, he was quickly tried, convicted, sentenced to death, and hanged. Across Virginia and other southern states, state legislators passed new laws to control slaves and free blacks. They prohibited education of slaves and free blacks, restricted rights of assembly for free blacks, withdrew their right to bear arms (in some states), voting, and required white ministers to be present at all black worship services.
Born into slavery on October 2, 1800, in Southampton County, Virginia, his name was recorded as “Nat” by his master Benjamin Turner, and when Benjamin Turner died in 1810 Nat became the property of Benjamin’s brother Samuel Turner. By the Civil War era, sources referred to him as Nathaniel, and gave him the surname of his master in the white slaveholder custom of the time. Historians also adopted that convention. Turner knew little about the background of his father who was believed to have escaped from slavery when Turner was a young boy.
Novelist William Styron suggests that Turner remained close to his paternal grandmother, Old Bridget, who was also owned by Benjamin Turner. Further, in his Confessions of Nat Turner, Styron wrote that Old Bridget, captured at 13 and shipped to America, was of the Coromantee, also known as the Akan people from the area of present-day Ghana. The Coromantee were known to resist slavery. Robert Hanserd related that through its holy men, the Coromantee participated in or even led slave revolts in the Caribbean and in New York. As Styron did not reference sources and made clear his book was a work of fiction, this depiction of Old Bridget is of unclear provenance.
Turner spent his life in Southampton County, Virginia, a plantation area where enslaved laborers were the majority of the population. He was identified as having “natural intelligence and quickness of apprehension, surpassed by few.”He learned to read and write at a young age. Deeply religious, Nat was often seen fasting, praying, or immersed in reading the stories of the Bible.
Turner’s religious convictions manifested as frequent visions which he interpreted as messages from God. Turner’s belief in the visions was such that when Turner was 22 years old he ran away from his owner but returned a month later after receiving a spiritual revelation. Turner often conducted Baptist services, preaching the Bible to his fellow slaves who dubbed him “The Prophet”. Turner garnered white followers such as Ethelred T. Brantley, who Turner was credited with having convinced to “cease from his wickedness”.
After the rebellion, a reward notice described Turner as:
5 feet 6 or 8 inches high, weighs between 150 and 160 pounds, rather bright complexion, but not a mulatto, broad shoulders, larger flat nose, large eyes, broad flat feet, rather knockkneed, walks brisk and active, hair on the top of the head very thin, no beard, except on the upper lip and the top of the chin, a scar on one of his temples, also one on the back of his neck, a large knot on one of the bones of his right arm, near the wrist, produced by a blow.
Turner was proclaimed as a prophet by his fellow black slaves on the plantation. In early 1828, Turner was convinced that he “was ordained for some great purpose in the hands of the Almighty.”While working in his owner’s fields on May 12, Turner “heard a loud noise in the heavens, and the Spirit instantly appeared to me and said the Serpent was loosened, and Christ had laid down the yoke he had borne for the sins of men, and that I should take it on and fight against the Serpent, for the time was fast approaching when the first should be last and the last should be first.”In connecting this vision to the motivation for his rebellion, Turner makes it clear that he sees himself as participating in the confrontation between God’s Kingdom and the anti-Kingdom that characterized his social-historical context.”He was convinced that God had given him the task of “slay[ing] my enemies with their own weapons.”Turner said, “I communicated the great work laid out for me to do, to four in whom I had the greatest confidence” – his fellow slaves Henry, Hark, Nelson, and Sam.
Beginning in February 1831, Turner interpreted certain atmospheric conditions as a sign to begin preparations for a rebellion against the slave owners. On February 11, 1831, an annular solar eclipse was seen in Virginia and Turner envisioned this as a black man’s hand reaching over the sun. He initially planned the rebellion to begin on July 4, Independence Day. Turner postponed it because of illness and to use the delay for additional planning and deliberation with his co-conspirators. On August 13 there was another solar eclipse in which the sun appeared bluish-green, possibly the result of lingering atmospheric debris from an eruption of Mount St. Helens. Turner interpreted this as the final signal, and about a week later, on August 21, he began the uprising.
Main article: Nat Turner’s slave rebellion
Turner started with a few trusted fellow slaves. “All his initial recruits were other slaves from his neighborhood”. The neighborhood had to find ways to communicate their intentions without giving up their plot. Songs may have tipped the neighborhood members on movements. “It is believed that one of the ways Turner summoned fellow conspirators to the woods was through the use of particular songs.”The rebels traveled from house to house, freeing slaves and killing the white people they found. The rebels ultimately included more than 70 enslaved and free blacks. Because the rebels did not want to alert anyone to their presence as they carried out their attacks, they initially used knives, hatchets, axes, and blunt instruments instead of firearms.
The rebellion did not discriminate by age or sex, until it was determined that the rebellion had achieved sufficient numbers. Nat Turner only confessed to killing one of the rebellion’s victims, Margret Whitehead, whom he killed with a blow from a fence post. Before a white militia was able to respond, the rebels killed 60 men, women, and children. They spared a few homes “because Turner believed the poor white inhabitants ‘thought no better of themselves than they did of negros.’”Turner also thought that revolutionary violence would serve to awaken the attitudes of whites to the reality of the inherent brutality in slave-holding, a concept similar to 20th-century philosopher Frantz Fanon’s idea of “violence as purgatory”. Turner later said that he wanted to spread “terror and alarm” among whites.
Capture and execution
Nat Turner captured by Mr. Benjamin Phipps, a local farmer
The rebellion was suppressed within two days, but Turner eluded capture by hiding in the woods until October 30, when he was discovered by a farmer named Benjamin Phipps, where he was hiding in a hole covered with fence rails. While awaiting his trial, Turner confessed his knowledge of the rebellion to attorney Thomas Ruffin Gray. On November 5, 1831, he was tried for “conspiring to rebel and making insurrection”, convicted and sentenced to death. Turner was hanged on November 11 in Jerusalem, Virginia. His body was flayed, beheaded and quartered. Turner received no formal burial; his headless remains were either buried unmarked or kept for scientific use. His skull is said to have passed through many hands, last being reported in the collection of a planned civil rights museum for Gary, Indiana, despite calls for its burial.
In the aftermath of the insurrection there were 45 slaves, including Turner, and five free blacks tried for insurrection and related crimes in Southampton. Of the 45 slaves tried, 15 were acquitted. Of the 30 convicted, 18 were hanged, while 12 were sold out of state. Of the five free blacks tried for participation in the insurrection, one was hanged, while the others were acquitted.
Soon after Turner’s execution, Thomas Ruffin Gray took it upon himself to publish The Confessions of Nat Turner, derived partly from research done while Turner was in hiding and partly from jailhouse conversations with Turner before trial. This work is considered the primary historical document regarding Nat Turner.
In total, the state executed 56 blacks suspected of having been involved in the uprising. But in the hysteria of aroused fears and anger in the days after the revolt, white militias and mobs killed an estimated 200 blacks, many of whom had nothing to do with the rebellion.
Before Nat Turner’s Revolt, there was a small but ineffectual antislavery movement in Virginia, largely on account of economic trends that made slavery less profitable in the Old South in the 1820s and fears among whites of the rising number of blacks, especially in the Tidewater and Piedmont regions. The push for abolition in 1831 represented the interests of Herrenvolk democracy and white male suffrage. Enraged poor whites condemned the slave-owning aristocracy for endangering their families and retaining an unfair advantage in elections as a result of the 3/5 clause. Most of the movement’s members, including acting governor John Floyd, supported resettlement of blacks to Africa for these reasons. The enlightenment thinking of Virginia’s forefathers played little part in the Emancipation’s Debates of 1831-2. Considerations of white racial and moral purity also influenced many of these anti-slavery Virginians. These concerns illustrated that Virginia position towards slavery was no longer “apologetic”. The fear caused by Nat Turner’s insurrection and the concerns raised in the emancipation debates that followed resulted in politicians and writers responding by defining slavery as a “positive good”. Such authors included Thomas Roderick Dew, a William and Mary College professor who published a pamphlet in 1832 opposing emancipation on economic and other grounds.
Fears of uprisings polarized moderates and slave owners across the South. Municipalities across the region instituted repressive policies against blacks. Rights were taken away from those who were free. The freedoms of all black people in Virginia were tightly curtailed. Socially, the uprising discouraged whites’ questioning the slave system from the perspective that such discussion might encourage similar slave revolts. Manumissions had decreased by 1810. The shift away from tobacco had made owning slaves in the Upper South an excess to the planters’ needs, so they started to hire out slaves. With the ending of the international slave trade, the invention of the cotton gin, and opening up of new territories in the Deep South, suddenly there was a growing market for the trading of slaves. Over the next decades, more than a million slaves would be transported to the Deep South in a forced migration as a result of the domestic slave trade.
In terms of public response and the toll of white lives, slaveholders in the Upper South and coastal states were deeply shocked by the Nat Turner Rebellion. While the 1811 German Coast Uprising in Louisiana involved a greater number of slaves, it resulted in only two white fatalities. Events in Louisiana, newly annexed by the United States in the Louisiana Purchase, did not receive as much attention in those years as uprisings in the Upper South and Low country of the Carolinas. These events had historical connections among families since colonial times. In regards to his status, Turner is regarded as a hero by many African Americans and pan-Africanists worldwide.
Nat Turner became the focus of historical scholarship in the 1940s, when historian, Herbert Aptheker published the first serious scholarly work on instances of slave resistance in the antebellum South. Aptheker wrote that the rebellion was rooted in the exploitative conditions of the Southern slave system. Based on his research in libraries and archives throughout the South, he found roughly 250 similar instances of uprisings, although none reached the scale of Nat Turner’s Revolt.

I don’t think America can know that. I think American think we was just playing and it’s gonna be some more playing but it ain’t gonna be no playing. It’s gonna be murder, you know what I’m saying, it’s gonna be like Nat Turner, 1831, up in this muthafucka. You know what I’m saying, it’s gonna happen.”
