Mildness Is as Mildness Does

Here is a charming presentation on the life of St. Francis of Assisi:
In his out-of-print book, Astrology of the Famed, Noel Tyl gives both possible natal horoscopes of Francis of Assissi, that of 1181 and 1182. He rectifies the natal chart by life events and chooses the birth date of September 26, 1181 noon LMT Assissi, Italy 12E37 43N04.
Here are the chart angles and planets' positions of St. Francis of Assisi:
Sept 26, 1181 noon LMT: ASC 19Sag17; MC 12Lib53; Sun 9Lib57, Mercury 00Lib54, Venus 26Leo06 in 9th house; 4th house: Moon 1Tau09, Uranus 3Tau05 Rx (the 1977 discovery degree of priestly healer and bridge between Earth and the Heavens, Chiron), Jupiter 8Tau30 Rx which will be conjoined by the Solar Eclipse of April 29, 2014.
1st house: South Node, a Saturnian point of separation and isolation @20Cap51 (a critical degree), and Mars 19Cap54; 2nd house: other-worldly Neptune, the Divine Source, @2AQ57 Rx; 7th house: North Node 20Can52 and Pluto 3Can35; 8th house: Saturn 9Leo39.
Plus, if you'd like a peek, astrodatabank has the natal horoscope (rated AA for BC/BR in hand) of the current Pope Francis I who named himself after you-know-who to make a particular point at this juncture in time. Are there correspondences between their two natal charts? Of course.
For example: Pope Francis' natal Jupiter 3Cap32 precisely opposes St. Francis' natal Pluto 3Can35 (not a very mild contact!) and his Chiron 20Gem14 conjoins St. Francis' natal Descendant of Partnerships. Pope Francis I's first natal planet to rise in St. Francis of Assissi's chart is his Sun 25Sag54 as his subtle choice of his papal name obviously shown a spotlight on St. Francis of Assissi (who was never actually a pope).
