#21 Czar of Russia, Alexander III
This is the time for Czar Alexander III in the Jones 1000. We have rectified the time to 12:49 and got the following chart which we think is far better for the monarch.
He was officially, Alexander III Emperor of all the Russias, King of Poland, and Grand Duke of Finland from 10 March 1881 until his death on 1 November 1894.
He was the second son of Alexander II who was assassinated and came to power because the first son, Nicholas, died of what is now thought to be Crohn’s disease. Nicholas requested that his heir marry his fiance Princess Dagmar of Denmark,who had already converted to Russian Orthodoxy from her native Lutheranism, and Alexander upon ascending to the throne heeded his brother’s wishes; Dagmar became Maria Federovna, probably taking the patronymic from her brother, King Frederick of Denmark, as her father was King Christian.
Surprisingly, they were a great match, as shown by the Venus right on the seventh house cusp that is conjunct Mercury showing their great understanding of each other.
Tsar Alexander and the Seventh House
The seventh house is important in the chart of the Tsar and shows how much he was linked to his wife, family and country. He was not a religious man, but upon becoming the heir apparent, he was taught the principles of law and administration by Konstantin P. Pobedonostsev, and that love of Orthodox tradition was a sacred trust between King and people.
True to form, there is nothing in his ninth house but the Devil’s Tail, which shows how he was betrayed not by the Church, but by the many foreign educated Russian nobles who pushed for reform little knowing that what they were starting was the Russian Revolution and hence their loss of properties and power. That was to be his son, Tsar Nicholas II’s ordeal, but it was under Alexander III that many of those issues reared their head in ugly ways
