Alain Hades, regarded as one of the great French astrologers has died. He was also a prolific author of astrology books as well as over 30 spy and science fiction novels.
I’m not familiar with his work but one critique said he could be overly negative about ‘bad’ aspects in a chart – that he was ‘not very diplomatic and reluctant to think positively when things go wrong.’
Born 6 November 1931 6.20pm St Germain en Laye, France, he was a Sun Scorpio on his Descendant with Mercury, Venus also in Scorpio in his 7th. He’d be persuasively and powerfully charming but also inclined to be overly penetrating in the way he put his views across. He had the Depression signature of Pluto in Cancer opposition Saturn in Capricorn on his Midheaven square Uranus in Aries in his 12th – definitely innovative with such an emphasised Uranus, and designed for astrology; also unyielding with a depressive streak.
He was an entertainer and performer with Jupiter in flamboyant Leo in his theatrical 5th house square his Sun and trine Uranus; with creative Neptune also in the 5th in a showbusiness, publicity-attracting square to Mars.
An interesting man who certainly had a work ethic.
