Birth chart Betty Page
Bettie Page, the first pin-up ever, died and this is her chart. The planet of arts and beauty (Venus) is rising before the Sun and 'calling' (not making major aspects in sign). Uranus square the Midheaven is illustrative for the upheavel around her. Uranus is semi square the 'calling Sun' and this makes you think about drawing attention and wanting to be in the center of attention at any possible level, being controversial if she had to. Breaking free most have been a central theme in her life (Sun quindecile Saturn and semi square Uranus). I suddenly remember that she was famous for bondage...
Betty Page has a prominent Sun, Mercury (semi square Aries Point), Venus (not aspected), Mars (dito), Jupiter (sesquisquare AP) and Neptune (dito).
Her Moon is strong in Cancer and final dispositor of the Midheaven. The Moon in Cancer is telling us about the need to 'pretend' or 'act' or to be the 'model'. Education of kids is related to the Moon and little children imitate the model (the mother for example). Many actors have a prominent Moon as they mirror the behaviour of the main character. This Moon conjunct Pluto on the cusp of the 5th house could be read as 'being a model strongly related to sexuality for entertainment'.
