« on: May 22, 2022, 09:51:53 AM »
       Siegfried Sassoon, (born Sept. 8, 1886, Brenchley, Kent, Eng.—died Sept. 1, 1967, Heytesbury, Wiltshire), English poet and novelist, known for his antiwar poetry and for his fictionalized autobiographies, praised for their evocation of English country life.

Sassoon enlisted in World War I and was twice wounded seriously while serving as an officer in France. It was his antiwar poetry, such as The Old Huntsman (1917) and Counterattack (1918), and his public affirmation of pacifism, after he had won the Military Cross and was still in the army, that made him widely known. His antiwar protests were at first attributed to shell shock, and he was confined for a time in a sanatorium, where he met and influenced another pacifist soldier-poet, Wilfred Owen, whose works he published after Owen was killed at the front. His autobiographical works include The Memoirs of George Sherston, 3 vol. (1928–36), and Siegfried’s Journey, 3 vol. (1945), and more of his poems were published as Collected Poems (1947) and The Path to Peace (1960). His later poetry was increasingly devotional.
       In his biiwheel, Tropiical inside, Draconic outside, notice how the draconic chart shows him finding his soul's true path.
Venus in his tropical chart is hidden in his 12th House, but after all his life experiences, Venus, poetry, in his  Draconic, becomes exalted in Pisces
in his 7th House and Mars changes to Gemini in his 9th House of publication.    He published poems with an antiwar theme.      Check your Draconic chart and find your soul's true career path.
      In the Tropical, his Nodal axis was hidden in his depresseive 12th House but once he found his true life path, the Draconic Nodal Axis moved
to his 1st and 7th House of public projection, love of poetry, as echod by his Draconic Venus exalted in Piscces, 7th.
      His early gayness is shown by Draconic descendant conj Tropical Uranus.   Later in life he married a woman, Draconic Venus on his Descendant.
