Albrecht von Waldstein horoscope. Cast for Bohemian military leader Albrecht von Waldstein (1583-1634, also Albrecht von Wallenstein) in 1608 when he was 25, by the astronomer Johannes Kepler, this horoscope accurately foretold a life of ambition and violence. The centre square gives the date and time of his birth and identifies him in German as 'The Noble Man'. The figures in the triangles note the positions of various heavenly bodies that influence 12 areas of his personality. Kepler's name is given in the title across top, and von Waldstein's name at centre. Astrological symbols identify the signs of the zodiac.
