Eichmann, according to one of his henchmen, said just before the German collapse that “he would leap laughing into the grave because the feeling that he had five million people on his conscience would be for him a source of extraordinary satisfaction.”
–William L. Shirer, The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich.
Corpses, corpses, corpses. Shot, gassed, corpses in a state of decomposition, and blood fantasies pressing up from the mass graves.
–From the memoirs of Adolf Eichmann.
The Austrian Nazi Adolf Karl Eichmann was born in Solingen, Germany, near the center of a Transcendental Midpoint-Field formed by Primary Mercury, which rises in a curving position over southern Italy, Yugoslavia, Hungary, former Czechoslovakia, Poland, and the Baltic states, and by equally aspected Primary Pluto, which runs in a vertical, Midheaven position over the North Atlantic. Eichmann’s Secondary Transcendental Mars sets in a curving pattern over the southeast corner of the Mediterranean, further extending the range of this Transcendental Midpoint-Field.
The Pluto-Mars pairing is considered to be one of the most powerful signatures in astrology, signifying, in its negative manifestation, a potential for “energizing / forces of mass destruction” and for “dictatorially willful, aggressive, or violent acts leading to social upheaval and enforced collective transformation.” In addition, like other dictatorial henchman born with a Transcendental Mercury, Eichmann excelled at designing a “bureaucratic system” of extermination.
Eichmann’s negative personification of these Transcendentals comprised some of the darkest aspects of this potent symbolism. A sort of “bureaucratic / executioner” (Primary Mercury / Primary Pluto), he administered the Austrian “Office for Jewish Emigration,” which issued exit permits to Austrian Jews only after they handed over all their worldly possessions; it would later become “an agency not of emigration but of extermination and to organize the slaughter of more than four million persons.”1
On January 20, 1942, German officials met in Wannsee, a suburb of Berlin, to discuss the “Final Solution”: a systematic killing of Europe’s eleven million Jews. S.S. Chief Reinhard Heydrich chose Eichmann to coordinate the decisions reached at the Wannsee Conference, to “ensure that the Final Solution worked smoothly, that the deportations were orderly and systematic, and that adequate deceptions worked throughout”2 (Primary Pluto). In other words, Eichmann was to be the chief coordinator in the deportation of Jews to the “extermination centers” (Pluto).
Two years later, after Eichmann’s plans to deport three-quarters-of-a-million Hungarian Jews to Auschwitz were largely fulfilled, he received the Iron Cross, Second Class. His next major project was initiated twenty-four hours after the German Army occupied Hungary, in October 1944. He targeted the Budapest Jews and called for 50,000 to be deported on foot–to be forcibly marched all the way to Germany–where they would work, if they survived the march, as enslaved laborers. As we can see in his astrocartography, Hungary is located directly under Eichmann’s Primary Mercury line: again, symbolizing Eichmann’s principal role in “designing a bureaucracy / of extermination” (Primary Mercury / Primary Pluto). The Primary Pluto / Secondary Mars symbolism of “subjection to dominating dictatorial attitudes”; “possibility of death in war situations”; “attempt[s] to forcibly remake or remold others”3; and an “activation of violent / underworld and criminal forces” (Eichmann was later tried for crimes against humanity) were all exemplified by the monstrous actions of this brutal historic figure.
Several months after his capture by American forces, Eichmann escaped (1945) and eventually made his way to Argentina (1950), where he spent ten years in hiding. He was later captured in Buenos Aires and forcibly deported to Israel, where he was executed by hanging at Ramle Prison, on May 31, 1962.
