During the Papal conclave, many people saw this image of the bird on the chimney. The bird was exactly on the location were everyone watched to see either black or white smoke. It was on that day that a new Pope was announced, and he chose the name Francis. St. Francis is the patron saint of animals, and is often depicted with a white bird. Perhaps this bird was a sign of what was to come? I am not convinced that anyone knows the exact time of birth of the new Pope. But we do know his date, year and place of birth. From that information, certain things will be true. I believe this man will rise to the same revered status as people such as the Dalai Lama, Mother Theresa, Martin Luther King, Nelson Mandela, and even Princess Diana. His Moon conjunct Venus in Aquarius makes him the ultimate humanitarian. He will always want to be with and for the people, and I suspect his bodyguards will have a hard time keeping him in his Pope Mobile! His Sun conjunct Jupiter in Sagittarius makes him believe that anything is possible. He is completely hardwired to make big changes. I think over time we will see him become even more of a positive influence, especially for those less fortunate. He also has Pluto opposite his Moon and Venus, along with Saturn squaring his Sun. This means there will be people who do not like the fact that he is “rocking the boat” with all his people pleasing qualities. A friend of mine reminded me recently that the only reason Jesus was killed was because of his ideas. He never hurt anyone, and he was the embodiment of loving kindness. The new Pope is a man of ideas too, and he is patently kind. I can only know that he will make a positive difference in the area of loving compassion for the planet.
