Andre Barbault, the renowned French astrologer, was born 100 years ago today and astonishingly only died in 2019. His in-depth study of mundane astrology and the great conjunctions of history led him to predict a major transformation of the Soviet system a year before Stalin’s death and its ultimate collapse in 1989. He also predicted the global economic crisis of 2008-2010. And said in 2011 that another pandemic was likely in 2020-2021.
He had an intelligent view of what the outer planets coming together foretold. The impetus for change is strong but could be beneficial or the opposite depending on which viewpoint you take. The present pandemic has been destructive of life and businesses but from the point of view of global warming, biodiversity, excessive activity and travel, uncontrolled consumption, the quality of the environment and closer family relationships, could be seen to have brought silver linings.
He was born 1 October 1921 at 5pm in Champignelles, France, on the day of a Solar Eclipse with the New Moon in Libra in his 8th house conjunct Jupiter in his 7th. The 8th house would give him almost psychic abilities, certainly an interest in what ran below the surface of life – and a need to retreat into peace and quiet to shut out noise. His Jupiter was conjunct Saturn in the final degree of Virgo – so he had a balanced idealistic/practical drive. He also had a passionately enthusiastic and hard-working Venus Mars in Virgo in his 7th house. He wrote more than fifty books.
He also had an attention demanding and creative Pluto in his 5th in an inventive and rebellious square to a maverick Uranus in his 1st.
His get-it-together and creative 5th harmonic chart was strong; as was his breakthrough/genius 13H; and more so his leaving-a-legacy-for-history 17H.

A pleasure to read.
Carol I see that Hugh answered your query.
I was away for the weekend.
Yes indeed, his Index well worth looking at, he loved 2026 and worries about a major War in 2080.
His Barbault index worth reading up and viewing.
It sees far better times from 2026.
Thank you George, where can the index be found and is there a version in English?
The nadir of the index is April next year, and then a slow incline towards 2026, so some hope for better days as the outer planets prepare to ingress between now and then.
What a fascinating sounding man, I too would like to read more, particularly about his predictions.
Thanks very much Marjorie for answering my earlier query so promptly! He was 1 in a million.
