In the last days of 1932, Hitler was contemplating suicide….at this nadir of his career, he turned to an old friend, Erik Jan Hanussen, a famous astrologer and master of several occult disciplines who had – it was said – taught Hitler everything.
Although he had never cast Hitler’s astrological chart before, now in the late days of 1932, Hanussen erected his natal and probably a transit or progressed chart and appeared before Hitler with an eerie prognosis.
Hanussen told his host that there were good times ahead, but that a few ‘obstacles’ remained that had to be eliminated. The implication was oddly surreal. The ‘obstacles’ were not actual people or circumstances. Instead, Hanussen claimed, Hitler was the victim of some sort of hex or magical spell.
We will certainly never know the actual dimensions of this baleful influence around the Fuhrer, but the outcome of Hanussen’s meditations was nothing short of spectacular.
In order to rid himself of this evil spell, he said, one would have to go to Hitler’s hometown. At the time of the full moon. At midnight. And remove a mandrake from the ground.
Hanussen decided to perform the necessary rituals himself and set off for Hitler’s birthplace in Austria, returning on New Year’s Day 1933 with the amuletic root and with a prediction: that Hitler’s return to power would begjn on January 30, a date roughly equivalent to the pagan Sabbath of Oimelc: one of the four ‘cross-quarter’ days of the witches’ calendar.
It seemed an outrageous prediction but – after a seriese of bizarre coincidences and half-baked conspiratorial machinations on the part of his opponents – Hitler went from washed-up political has-been to chancellor of Germany with dizzying speed in thirty days and, on January 30 1933, he assumed power.
