John Milton: born in London on 9 December 1608, (9.2.9) he is a double Sagittarius (Sun and Ascendant in Sagittarius) and Moon in Taurus (the same triad 9.2.9 of Ionesco), best-known for his epic poem Paradise Lost.
Milton was married three times. Some of these marriages generated a lot of grievances, which prompted Milton to write various essays on divorce. The theme of separation, ordinary and multidimensional reality, soul fragmentation, fall and loss of unity were dominant in his life and lead to the production of the huge Paradise Lost.
The poem narrates a story of Adam and Eve, with God, and Lucifer, who is thrown out of Heaven to corrupt humankind. Milton depicted a powerful and attractive portrait of Lucifer, abundant with metaphysical and inspired nihilism.
Here Satan appears as the real hero and rebel against the tyranny of Heaven. Yet this is covert and Milton does not appear to take the Devil’s side.
Assuredly we bring not innocence not the world, we bring impurity much rather: that which purifies us is trial, and trial is by what is contrary.
Better to reign in hell than serve in heav'n.
He that has light within his own clear breast May sit in the centre, and enjoy bright day: But he that hides a dark soul and foul thoughts Benighted walks under the mid-day sun; Himself his own dungeon.
Truth never comes into the world but like a bastard, to the ignominy of him that brought her birth.
