DAEMON SOUL ~ Jane Goodall’s Chart



The chart of a Daemon Soul generally reveals the inability to embody the status quo.  In Jane’s case she has the ruler of her ASC, Jupiter in Libra, opposite her Sun, Mars and Uranus in Aries.  The Freedom of the Known archetype Uranus took her to an entirely different continent to do pioneering work, unheard of, and especially by a woman.

Uranus in Aries is in the closing square to Pluto.  The pioneering spirit of her Mars and the Sun also in that closing square to Pluto, the crisis in consciousness, led her to examine firstly the presumptions we had about animals, their habits, habitats, and later the humane treatment of animals.  

Ceres as the skipped step, combined with the Pluto Uranus closing square, shows a soul who wants to come back and make a difference to life on Planet Earth.  

Ceres is known in mythology for her ability to control the seasons, and I am convinced that the soul of Jane Goodall had a deep and abiding desire to make life on earth more inhabitable for all… as her enduring legacy reveals.

There is a lot of energy and tension in this chart.  Her Sag Moon and Ascendant form a T-Square with her Mercury and Neptune.

The compassionate capacity a daemon soul has to communicate and inspire other beings with whom they share the Planet Earth is shown in this Mercury Neptune configuration.  

“What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make.” Dr. Jane Goodall’s research transformed the way we understand chimpanzees, other animals and our role in caring for the planet we all share.

“And if we dare to look into those eyes, then we shall feel their suffering in our hearts. More and more people have seen that appeal and felt it in their hearts. All around the world there is an awakening of understanding and compassion, and understanding that reaches out to help the suffering animals in their vanishing homelands. That embraces hungry, sick, and desperate human beings, people who are starving while the fortunate among us have so much more than we need. And if, one by one, we help them, the hurting animals, the desperate humans, then together we shall alleviate so much of the hunger, fear, and pain in the world. Together we can bring change to the world, gradually replacing fear and hatred with compassion and love. Love for all living beings.” ― Jane Goodall



At the age of 26, as Jupiter transited 26 degrees of Sagittarius – the galactic center – equipped with a notebook, a pair of binoculars, patience and her Sagittarian optimism, heightened by Jupiter in her first house Jane left for Africa.  She arrived on the shores of Lake Tanganyika is what is now Tanzania, in East Africa, to begin her lifelong mission in July of 1960.

Transiting Uranus at 18 Leo was crossing her natal nodes of the Moon, located at 16 Leo. The transiting Nodes of the Moon at 18 Virgo were moving over her natal Mercury Neptune opposition, awakening her dream and persistent desire to understand and communicate with animals, so typical of a Daemon Soul.

She broke typical stereotypes with her Lunar North Node in Aquarius desire to overcome the unknown, and bravely entered the little-known world of wild chimpanzees.  Woman hadn’t ventured into this territory, and her mother had to go with her on her early adventure. With her powerful Pluto in the 8th house, combined with her powerful Ceres-in Taurus-Mother-Nature-type-intention, she won the trust of these initially hesitant creatures.  She then used that Sag ASC to open a window into their sometimes strange, but oddly familiar-seeming lives. The public was fascinated by the way Jane learned to communicate and help the chimpanzees, and remains so to this day.



The transiting South Node of the Moon arrived on Feb 25, 1977 at 6 Aries, exactly on natal Uranus, which rules her Aquarius north node.

  • Saturn is also transiting her Natal South Node in Leo.  

  • Transiting Saturn exactly squares transiting Uranus

  • Uranus exactly opposes her skipped step – Ceres

The combination of these transits opened a way for her to establish her 8th house Pluto’s need for global reform and transformation.

By forming her institute, she is also providing a foundation,

(Saturn conjunct the Aquarius Natal North Node of the Moon in Aquarius), that the second house resources will need to make changes, and fulfill Pluto’s natal 2nd house polarity point of building a foundation for change.

February 25, 1977 Goodall established the Jane Goodall Institute (JGI), which supports the Gombe research, and is recognized for innovative, community-centered conservation and development programs in Africa and a global youth program, Roots & Shoots, which currently has over 8,000 groups in over 100 countries. Today, she is a global leader in the effort to protect chimpanzees, and sustain their habitats. Jane uses these powerful transits to the Nodes of the Moon to fulfill her desire to help humanity return to a state of balance within Natural Law.



As an Evolutionary Astrologer I study the phasal relationship of The Moon to Pluto to assess the emotional conditions and how the soul will get the emotional experiences it desires.  

The School of Evolutionary Astrology teaches:”that the Moon, Cancer, and the 4th house correlate to our conscious need for emotional and psychological security. If that need for such security is externalized, and, thus, dependent on whatever those externalized sources of security are, then the Soul will create circumstances in which those externalized sources of security will lead, at some point, to the rug being pulled out from underneath the Souls feet.   This is because the Soul, in the end, desires to have all sources of security met from within itself so that it becomes dependent on nothing except itself, and that which has Created it.”  Rad Zecko

Jane Goodall has the Moon at 3 Sag, and Pluto at 22 Cancer.  Her Moon and Pluto are in the gibbous phase, at the sesquiquadrate aspect of 135 degrees of the entire 360 circle.

At this stage the Soul has all the talent that the 120 trine promises.  Having done the hard work of accomplishing all that Leonean type of self-expression and creative self-actualization of the Soul’s purposes, the Soul is celebratory and full of confidence.  The Soul can therefore be unprepared for the critical phase of the sesquiquadrate. At this stage the Soul has to discover how to now make all this talent relevant to society.

Jane certainly had her fair share of slings and arrows that a 135 sesquiquadrate aspect can bring.  She overcome criticism and hardships while developing her pioneering strategies, tactics, and foundations.  

Early on in her research, she named the chimps, and many thought this was just plain wrong.  Instead they tried to dehumanize the process by simply numbering the animals as subjects. She fed the chimpanzees and her detractors said she caused aggression, and food wars, amongst them.

Daemon souls often have this combination of ease and challenges.  They have the destiny to figure out how to bring their innate understanding of Natural Law into their daily life, and will face opposition from small minded, consensus clinging individuals.

JWG has said about the sesquiquadrate:  “…it has tremendous tension, and conflict.   A soul seeks to accomplish the goals, relative to the vision that it is receiving, and this environmental feedback that feels like rejection. That is why we have these keywords in the gibbous phase of “analysis and adjustment,” because when you meet that environmental feedback in this sociological context, it will necessarily promote an existential and experiential crisis which will lead to analysis.”

If you are a Daemon soul I counsel you to learn the phases of the Moon, and all Planets.  It is based on the seed cycle of life.

For the Northern Hemisphere:  beginning with our new year, at the Winter Solstice, in the sign of Capricorn the little seed has all of life, the waters of Aquarius and Pisces nurture the seed until it breaks through the horizon at the equator and life sprouts in Aries.  

In Taurus and Gemini, the seed flowers and begins to bear fruit, and then the little planet blossoms fully at the Summer Solstice in Cancer.  As the Sun now turns back South towards the equator the fruit continues to ripen and we enjoy and celebrate life fully in Leo and Virgo.

At the Fall Equinox, in the sign of Libra, the fruit begins to fall off the trees and we harvest and enjoy it, until during Scorpio and Sagittarius we used to can and store the extra fruit for winter.  

This seed cycle is reflected in the New Moon from Capricorn Winter Solstice to Full Moon at the Summer solstice.   The first quarter Moon relates to the Aries Spring Equinox crossing, and the second quarter Moon to the Libra Fall Equinox.

Once a Daemon Soul is in touch with this endless cycle of life, they can begin to work with the bigger clocks of the Universe, and Natural Laws become more and more obvious, and remembered. Emotional choices also come into focus as the Moon cycle becomes a part of your daily awareness.



Transiting Pluto is currently conjunct its own South Node AT 18 Cap 52.   Observe and correlate as we move towards the exact conjunction on 23rd October 2018 @ 18 Cap 52, with ruler Saturn @ 4 Cap 15. There was an exact opposition of Pluto to its own North Node in Cancer on 23rd March 2017 @ 19 Cap/Can.  So as we see Pluto conjunct its own Nodes in 2018,  it is close enough now that we can see into the lifespan of Jane Goodall and how her Pluto in Cancer has left its blueprint on the world.  She has left us an enduring legacy, warnings, prayers and a forum for how to save each other, the animals, and the planet. She has been a tour de force.

There are many organizations now that care for the well-being of animals, besides her own formidable foundation.  She has been an intrepid angel, a pioneer. And her Pluto in the 8th house stands as a testimony to the power of the individual.  You can make a difference in your own life by learning from hers. Join or help JGI http://www.janegoodall.org/

Another worldwide organization who is doing all it can for our animals friends need all the support
