Elizabeth bathory , was a Hungarian noble woman and one of the most prolific female muderer, according to Guinesse World Records , she is usually compared with Vlad the impaler or Count Dracula … and she goes by the name the Blood Countess .
With 650 victims who suffered death , mutiliation or various forms of tortures . Many horrific stories were webbed about her , however being part of a Noble family , had led her cas to end with a “mild sentence” life imprioninment in her castle, although she was declared to be caught red handed , however the validity of most of these stories is rather weak since the myth and folklore played their role , yet a life imrisionment in a solitary confinement in her castle is a fact.
This is her story in brief , however that is not the only story , a counter story Justine that Elizabeth was actually innonecnt and these stories were a result of political schemes .
Just as folklore had convicted Count Dracula as a person who used to live on the blood of his victims , she was also convicted to bath in the blood of virgins to maintain her youth … however both of these stories were countered saying especially in Elizabeth case , where many facts presented in her case are actually doubted to be true, some would say that she was actually a victim of conspiracy, due to her rise of wealth and power .
I thought if we look at her chart, we might actually reach some clue to who Elizabeth Bathory was
Pisces 10′ symbolic degree ” a man and a woman reclining on a roman bed cheerfully partake wine and fruits ” (janduz version) a degree that symbolized a frickles character however if you read through its interpretation it hold that, this degree indicates that gossips cause serious troubles and that bad reputation threatens men and women alike” .
Unfortunately no time of birth is available, so her mystery is still kind of working it’s mojo till this day.
Just few hints about her life before we get into her chart .
First ,Elizabeth was said to have had a child at the age of nine before her marriage which resulted in her giving up her child to a paid local woman .
Second, she was a resourceful women who knew how to read and write , also speak several lanaguages. And during the time her husband had left to war , she had taken the role of defending her husbands estate and even her role extended to provide medical care. Several incidences showed eliszabith as a dutiful women who stood by women who suffered misfortune from the war .
Now back to her chart, Elizabeth is a Leo Sun , Mars and Venus all conjunct and all square Uranus in Scorpio . An eccentric figure with a fiery flare and will . Individualistic and opinionated . The square with Uranus Scorpio shall bring out her sexuality to oppose the norms and defy the standards of her society. No wonder that the blood bath scandals were also mythed to be a ritual for retaining beauty (venus ). However having mars squares Uranus will make her will and need for eccentricity seen as a source of shadow type cast to the society.
Moon is in Pisces , which is considered a good sign for the mood to be , as its essence is to connect to different sorts of people , conjunct Pluto . Now this brings her moon to experience a different tone imprint , since the moon is a reflector by nature , a stallite that holds our memories and our reactions stem from its dynamics. Here with Pluto conjunct Pisces moon this shall give her nature a secretive deep and profound feelings . The Pluto moon contacts usually deals with loss and distortions to the mother figure . Here the experience that can reflect this kind of placement in her life can be traced in the incident of her giving up her child at her very young age. Such moon contact to Pluto turns the moon to experience all sorts of obsessions and fears . An experience that bring out the worst demons for them to be purged and the natal is to learn how to handle this process and bring out the transformation.
We can not really tell if this moon signature had turned Elizabeth to the monster she was accused to be, but it is defiantly notable in how her life unfolded whether her loss of her first child or her husband being away at war for long period of time . Many of the facts are missing , yet this aspect can be the catalyst behind her willingness to help other women. She probably was the character that was strange , strong and you would doubt their motives even if they mean well. That can be also seen in mercury opposite Pluto , a great mind that can cut to the core, investigative but also distant under the wall of protection that Pluto builds , and with Neptune square too that means even the what she communicated was either misleading or she was mislead . A blurry reality is also there with her sun square Neptune . This can make her trust the Not trust worthy and vice versa, her judgment on reality and people can be swayed by illusions.
What is for sure known about this women however that she made herself an icon of some sort of way perhaps very different than what she intended of herself to be . The eccentric sexual appetite along with a need to belong and merge through sex and the taboo to transform along with neptunian illusion can bring her monster out without even herself questioning her motives . Was she illuded or was she lead to her down fall by trusting the wrong people while trying to prove her self a hero .
Having Saturn in Gemini where a lesson to mutually relate and a north node that is conjuncting Pluto , her transformation to understand how to communicate could have been her real homework in this life time. Maybe she was just a different powerful perhaps also sexy woman who made others jealous by her fortune which was also her misfortune .
