Rectified Natal Chart for Greta Thunberg

Standard

Rectification work for Greta Thunberg’s natal chart. 

There is no exact birth time for Greta Thunberg’s chart. This post goes through the Solar Arc (SA) charts I have used to do rectification work on her chart. Many of the Solar Arc hits to her natal planets do, however, tell the general narrative of her young life, regardless of her exact birth time.  (Click on charts to expand.)

Birth time estimated at 12:54 pm on 3 Jan 2003, Stockholm, Sweden.

 

The ruler of her chart, Mercury R, sits on the Midheaven (public standing/status). Mercury will go direct by progression when she is 21/22. Her father is  a Gemini, and often children have ascendants similar to their parents Sun signs.

The chart has activity in the upper half, denoting Greta taking her place in the outside world. Her passionate Venus/Mars conjunction in Scorpio, in 6th house, square her N Uranus in Aquarius, (hopes/wishes/causes) denotes her passion directed to a cause, namely climate change which is a 6th house matter.

Her N Jupiter R in Leo is trine N Pluto in Sagittarius, gives her the confidence and ability to speak up publicly and understand global issues. Her Moon in Capricorn, ruled by Saturn, (earth/responsibility/discipline) is trine (positive) her natal Mars in Scorpio (transformative) also in 6th house of climate. She finds it easy to take action, and as her Mars is in a fixed sign, she has strong/fixed deep emotions about the climate.

Her Chiron (wound) in Capricorn, is conjunct the Sun in Capricorn, in 8th house, which would give her “existential angst”. Chiron is also semi-square her Uranus/Venus square – she would be compelled to make climate action her cause, as she sees it as a direct threat to her existence/life (8th house).

Solar arc Jan 2011 to Natal  – 8 years old, first heard about climate change.


At age 8 she received instruction on climate change. Her SA Ascendant was approaching her natal Saturn, the planet of responsibility. Her natal Sun also conjoined her Moon in 9th house, of global issues, world view, big picture ideas. The SA North Node, also conjoins her Ascendant. She has been “enlightened”. However, as her Ascendant is quinqunx (150 deg) her natal Sun, it releases her existential fears, as it activates her Sun semi-square Venus and Uranus.

Solar Arc 2014 to Natal –  Illness diagnosed

Her Illness is diagnosed, when SA Mercury conjoins with her Natal Neptune in the sign of Aquarius. Her SA Neptune is also coming to square her natal Mars in Scorpio in 6th house, also the house of illness. Mercury, Neptune hits are common in nervous disorders and would account for her “muteness” going into a world of her own. Her SA Venus, which is semi-square Chiron natally, is again activated, as it is conjoining her South Node in 6th house. 

Solar Arc August 2018 to Natal  – Sits alone on Climate School Strike

 

 

 

At age 15, Greta is now capable of analytical thinking. She takes a stand against climate change. Her SA Sun and Chiron have reached her Midheaven and also conjoining her natal Mercury. Her SA Neptune is conjoining her natal Uranus in Aquarius and squaring her Venus in Scorpio. Her SA North Node in 1st house is conjoining her PoF and natal Saturn. She has decided that she alone (Saturn) will make a stand by going on strike for climate change. 

I welcome any comments re Greta’s rectified birth time. Of course, any public announcement of her exact birth time, would be a huge bonus for mundane astrological work and help shed light on how her original idea of “Student Strike for Climate” will evolve in the future.

Blessings to you Greta,

Looking back, Uranus in Taurus, 1934-1942, in Australian Politics.

Standard

As most of you know, Australia’s Federation chart has an exalted Moon in Taurus. In the Melbourne chart, it forms a separating grand trine to Sun/Saturn in Capricorn, and to Mars in Virgo.

 

Given that Uranus is now again in Taurus, what can we learn, (given that very few of us have experienced Uranus in Taurus), about this transit and how it will impact our national politics.

Many of us expected the recent election to bring about Uranian change/upheavals. Well in one sense it did, as opinion polls incorrectly predicted the outcome. But the government did not change, Uranus in Taurus dug its heels in and revealed the “ fixed, stubborn” streak associated with the sign. Of course, Venus, the ruler of Taurus conjunct Uranus, added an extra streak of stubbornness..

Well then, what can we expect with transiting Uranus in Taurus, being a major transit during the term of this new government and off and on triggering our grand trine in the earth signs?

Let’s go back to when Uranus was last in Taurus and look at what radical, new amazing things (Uranus) the government of the day achieved.

In 1934, Joseph Lyons was the PM and headed up the United Australia Party (UAP), (yes strange synchronicity with this election as Clive Palmer revived this party recently).

All the action had occurred in 1931, when Lyons split with the ALP and formed the UAP, mainly due to disagreements on how to handle the economic effects of the Great Depression. Uranus was in Aries, then, and yes the action is understandable, given the T Aries Uranus trine to Australia’s natal stellium in Sagittarius.

Lyons won 3 terms of Government, once in 1931, (Uranus in Aries), 1934 & 1937(Uranus in Taurus).

He died in office 7 April, 1939, the first Australian PM to do so. Robert Menzies then took over the leadership, until 1941, with the Labor Party under Curtin taking over in October 1941 (whilst Uranus was R in last degree of Taurus).

Overall, Lyons has been described as “leading an unadventurous government”? Lyons was a very popular PM, and used the media of the day newspapers, radio and flying, to connect with people. He had very orthodox economic policies, and believed in cutting government expenditure to pay down debt.

The list of notable legislation during his Uranus in Taurus terms, was very short, the most notable and compatible with Uranus in Taurus being the Income Tax Assessment Act 1936 (ITAA36) a new primary statute for the collection of income tax in Australia. It is still in force today, thousands of pages, with of course many amendments added over the last 84 odd years. This Act now covers those issues we went to the election over, namely negative gearing, franking credits, capital gains tax albeit they were added during the years Uranus made its continued cycle through the zodiac signs.

Changes proposed to this Act were rejected by Australians recently and looking at our chart, it is little wonder with the natal Moon Taurus trining Sun/Venus in Capricorn. We do not like changes to the things we value.., not to mention other changes proposed at this election namely gaining royalties/employment from mining…

Even transiting Uranus with applying aspects albeit a bit wide, did not give us a push to make changes, in fact the opposite happened and we dug our heels in, resisted change and went against (Uranus) the expected norms of the political pundits. However, will the ITAA36, escape more radical Uranian changes when it faces its Uranus return during the term of this Government?

Whilst Uranus was in Taurus during the Lyons/Menzies UAP government, it seems global events shook our then very small nation, rather than domestic matters. The Uranian event of the abdication of Edward VIII in Dec 1936, giving us a new King and the outbreak of WW2 in September 1939 which led our country into war, definitely had the flavour of Uranus.

T Uranus was at 6⁰ Taurus trining our natal Sun, when Edward VIII abdicated and at WW2 outbreak around 21⁰ Taurus trining our Mars in Virgo. All events triggering our Earth grand trine.

Overall, although some Uranus in Taurus influenced our domestic policies, it seems that this planet and sign impacted the Globe more drastically and we by default, as global citizens, became players in these events.

Seems to me that we in Australia, now again have to look to Global events having an impact on our nation, hopefully not abdication of our Monarch, and certainly not war, but perhaps the impact of climate change?  Make your own conclusions, as there could be many more, by looking at the bi-wheel below. Given that our SA Moon in Virgo is conjunct our Natal Mars in Virgo, an earth sign, and the ruler Mercury is trine by SA to our natal Jupiter in Sagittarius, perhaps global (Jupiter/Sag) action regarding the condition of the earth will impact us. In any case, our natal grand trine in earth signs, will be triggered by our solar arc Moon, and with T Uranus in the mix, it looks like Australia reacting to global events will give us an interesting few years ahead. 

Pluto went retro square fixed star Spica.

Standard

Pluto went retro at 23°09 Capricorn, (25/26 April 2019) square the fixed star Spica 23°50 Libra.

This fixed star denotes, wealth, fame, honour, glamour, the “Fortunate One”. Very Fortunate; Venus/ Mars. Any wins lately?

Note: Transiting Pluto 23°09 R is also opposite Donald Trump’s Natal Saturn 23°48, which in turn is square Spica!!

Donald Trump’s Pluto=Sat/Mars midpoint

Standard

Donald Trump’s natal chart has a Pluto=Sat/Mars midpoint.

This midpoint is especially difficult, as his natal Pluto 10º Leo falls in his 12th house of “self-undoing”.

Ebertin describes this midpoint as, “Brutality, the rage or fury of destruction”. 

A modern interpretation of this midpoint is:

Demonstrating the will and intent to meet specific challenges; to completely master and overcome an arduous situation. Defiance; refusing to back down or give in under pressure. Build ups of stress and aggression which are prone to periodic and powerful release. The activation of survival instincts. An awareness of the destructive forces of ‘man and nature’. Harmful elements. Collective loss and anguish.”

Around mid September 2019, his solar arc Ascendant hits up this midpoint by square, at 10º Scorpio, which will trigger the above reaction.

 


The 90º dial above shows how his Solar Arc (SA) ascendant has moved to an exact square to his natal Pluto. Also note that solar arc Chiron is forming a semi-square to the SA Ascendant, as it appears “Across the Dial” on the chart.

Below is an image of the same Dial with the pointer placed from the outer wheel, SA chart to natal chart.

Here we can see Asc=Sat/Nept, which according to Ebertin represents “An emotionally depressing environment, oppressive family circumstances, emotional suffering caused by other persons, limitation of freedom”.

Ebertin does not give interpretations for Chiron in the midpoint structures, but we can ascertain from the planetary energies involved, that he will be involved in the suffering (Chiron) caused by his actions (Ascendant) of his 12th house Pluto (behind the scene transformative actions to control).

Asc=Moon/Pluto, is interpreted as “A violent reaction to environmental influences, the tendency to cause upsets in one’s environment through one’s conduct, many upsets”.

Summary:

As we have already seen, Trump will have an extreme reaction to the Mueller report, and if Congress goes ahead with Impeachment, Trump’s reaction will be very strong indeed.

Meghan, Duchess of Sussex – relocated birth chart to London.

Megans chart Meghan, Duchess of Sussex relocation chart London

Relocated charts have a place in astrology. Whether you place more importance on your natal chart drawn up for your birth location, or follow your relocated chart, it is generally considered to use both when considering full interpretations. This is especially true when the person relocates “permanently” or for lengthy periods.

In any case, looking at your relocated chart when you change your residence, especially by great distances is worth doing, as the planets fall into different houses, thus changing the vibration of the natal chart.

Of course all your planetary positions and their aspects stay the same, but importantly your angles, the Ascendant, Descendant, IC and Midheaven change. These angles and the new aspects they make are considered very important, as angles bring in the energy from the outside world and these energies are felt, especially if hit up by transits.

The most notable change we see in the relocated chart, is her Leo Sun changing from her first house of self, to her 10th house of status. Wow, yes without a doubt her status has changed, she is now the Duchess of Sussex! The sign of Leo is always associated with Royalty and now she is married to a British Royal Prince, the Duke of Sussex.

This movement of the Sun is followed by her natal Mercury also in Leo, and in London is conjunct the apex of the chart the most prominent point of any chart, denoting worldly status, worldly recognition.

Her ideas (Mercury) and her radiance (Sun) have now been elevated to the highest platform from which she can project her ideas. There is no better position than this for the Royals to use their privileged position in society, to disseminate their ideas and make an impact on the world.

As both the Sun and Mercury make a positive aspect to the Moon, Saturn and Jupiter all in the sign of Libra (partnerships) it goes without saying that she will team up with the Duke and both will be a powerful force in humanitarian causes (11th house).

Her relocated Venus in Virgo also now falls in the 11th house, and positively aspected to her Mars in Cancer in the 9th house.  Her hopes and wishes (11th house) will be fulfilled by the man (Mars) in her life, born in a foreign country (9th house). Together they will get passionately (Venus/Mars) involved in humanitarian (11th) issues and disseminate these globally (9th). With her Venus in Virgo and Mars in Cancer – I would assume issues such as the environment, animals, climate change, health (Virgo), as well as issues surrounding women and children (Cancer) will all be on the agenda.

Also of great note is her North Node in the Royal sign of Leo, now also positioned in this 9th house of grand visions, justice, foreign cultures. The north node usually suggests Karma in a chart, the point in the chart where you have to fulfil your life’s journey.

So she has fulfilled her life karma by marrying into Royalty (Leo) and has been given the opportunity to use her elevated position to globally influence the world with her/their visions (9th house).
