Winston Churchill's natal chart

NOVEMBER 30 is the birthday of Winston Churchill. There are 3 posts about his natal chart on Astropost. His chart is the chart of a politician, above all, of leadership and ... of an artistic talent. It is clearly in the chart.

POLITICAL LEADERSHIP: Pluto and fixed/fire signs
The 'finger of God' in a Yod is pointing at the planet that is making an inconjunction with the two other planets, the apex. This 'finger of God' is pointing at Pluto and this highlighted Pluto is quintile his Mars: for the creative drive to win. Pluto is the symbol of winning, authority, power, strategy and politics. Pluto is the apex of his Yod of Pluto, Venus and Jupiter. Venus-Jupiter-Pluto is the trio of 'a lot of money' and of 'a lot of admirers'.

The 50% placements in fixed signs is for holding on and standing firm, the 50% in firesigns shows drive and pride. The fixed + fire sign Leo is the sign of leadership. The elementary placements in his chart also show the fundaments of leadership...

He was a political leader and ...a painter and author. Moon 112.5 (square + half semi square) Venus and trine Neptune, connected with Midheaven show the pattern of artistic talent. And we can see the international and the optimist (Jupiter rising before the Sagittarius Sun) and Ceres (the motherland).

Mars exactly trine Pholus
You know that Pholus is the astrological symbol of the turning point and Mars is the symbol of war. It seems perfectly correct that Winston Churchill was born on the day that there was a trine (symbol of ease) between Mars and Pholus. He made efforts and worked to create a turning point in World War II. Mars is also quintile Pluto for the dramatic creative winner*).

Mercury in Scorpio square Uranus
Mercury-Uranus always has controversial opinions and Winston Churchill was no exception.*)Some of the things that he said would bring him in trouble today, but the speech about the beaches was great...
"We shall defend our island, whatever the cost may be, we shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender."

*) The phyrric victory (Pholus inconjunct Pluto) in a tennis match: see : http://astropost.blogspot.com/2010/06/pholus-inconjunct-pluto-pyrrhic-victory.html

lChart of Winston Churchill


*) See the label Mercury-Uranus or google 'Astropost Mercury Uranus' for examples of the effect of this aspect in the charsts of famous controversial people like Sarah Palin (Mercury quintile Uranus), Berlusconi (always in the news...), Helen Thomas, David Cern and Sarazzin...

Jupiter, zeppelins and a lady

This week I watched a documentary named 'Farewell' about Lady Hay Drummond-Hay, the first woman to fly around the world in ...a zeppelin. She published about the flight of the Graf Zeppelin and was famous in the days before the big crisis and before the Second World War. She died too young, after severe illness in a Japanese prisonners camp in WWII. What I like to mention about the chart of her day of birth is: Jupiter! Jupiter is 'calling' (no major aspects in sign or orb 5 degrees) and Jupiter rises before the Sun. That is a very prominent Jupiter.
Jupiter is the symbol of the international, travelling and publishing. The prominence of Jupiter in her chart is perfectly corresponding with the main fact that we know about 'Gracie' Hay Drummond-Hay.

For more about prominent placements, see this post...

Wedding day of William and Kate

The progressions and transits for the wedding day of William and Kate are so nice, that I just had to mention them. You know that Venus is the symbol of love, sweetness and fun. Jupiter is the symbol of happiness and success. Neptune is the planet of romance. Together they are the combination of the fairy tale or dream marriage! This trio is in the chart of Prince William starting end of April of 2011! Venus and Neptune are important in the chart of William on the day of the wedding ceremony. In the follow-up there is Progressed Venus trine Jupiter. The meaning of these progressions and transits is: a romantic wedding day and good feelings afterwards. Love is in the air and in the chart of Prince William.

On the wedding day (April 29, 2011):
- The progressed Venus of William is conjunct his natal Sun (and that means the start of married life with the love of your life).
- Neptune is trine this conjunction for the romantic touch.
- And another good indication is progressed Venus trine Jupiter, later in 2011, for the happy couple. No regrets:)
(There is only one 'but': transit Uranus inconjunct Midheaven. That is for an overdose of tension and nerves, I presume.)

Kate's progressed Mars square Sun and trine progressed Sun is a double symbol of marriage. (The midpoint Sun/Mars in the chart of a woman is also the midpoint of marriage -meaning: living with a man, sharing life with a man, the 'man in your life' -). Her Ascendant and Midheaven might also be 'touched' by the event, but as her hour of birth is unknown, this remains a mystery.

Here is the natal chart of Willam with transits and progressions for the perfectly chosen date of the wedding. With such beautiful aspects you might wonder if an astrologer selected this date...or...that there is indeed correspondence between the positions in a chart and real life events...Love is in the air...

What is interesting is, that the wide Sun square Mars in the natal chart is resonating in this double Mars-Sun combination while his Venus inconjunct Neptune is resonated by Neptune trine progressed Venus. Perhaps that illustrates the importance of the event or shows how their natural hesitations will have been 'overruled' on April 29, 2011.

The complete story of the match, the synastry and the wedding day on Astromarkt: William, Kate, the wedding and the chart...

Day of birth of billionaire Mukesh Ambani

On July 17, 2008 I wrote about Mukesh and Anil Ambani and the astrological reasons for their differences and their clash about business. Mukesh Ambani (owner of Reliance) has Saturn calling in his chart and sesquisquare natal Sun and Venus. Since he split up with his brother, he is managing on his own and that is perfectly in line with Sun-Saturn (see the post about Sun and Saturn). The important Saturn tells a lot about business, ambitions and status. He is in the news because of a house warming party in his new house, a 28 floor appartment building in Mumbay, worth a billion. It is the most expensive house in the world. Are you curious? See the pictures of Mukesh Ambani's house here...
BTW He was born April 19, 1957.

President Obama, Saturn and stitches

Transit Saturn is exactly square Barack Obama's progressed Midheaven and see what happens: 12 stitches after a basketball misshap, an elbow in the face. Ouch!

They use to say that Saturn-Midheaven is bad for a career, so if he planned to be a professional basketball player...maybe he'd better not keep on trying:)...No seriously, Saturn-Midheaven is perhaps reflecting the difficulties to maintain his position after the bad results of the elections. That hurt and now this is another pain and another 'loss of the face'.

See the Huffington Post pictures here

See the label 'Obama' for all the posts about Obama.

Astropost: Chart of Gary McKinnon's day of birth

One year ago tomorrow, I wrote on Astropost: Chart of Gary McKinnon's day of birth and I see that there is still a Free Gary movement on the internet, trying to prevent that Gary McKinnon (a British citizen) will have to face an American judge. See the post about his chart and about the case.

Pholus and the retrospective impact of JFKs death on Obama

President Obama has Sun square Neptune and he is an idol. But he also has an idol: J.F. Kennedy. I wrote about that before (link: http://astropost.blogspot.com/2009/05/heroes-angles-and-sun-inconjunct.html) Barack Obama’s Neptune is inconjunct John F. Kennedy’s Sun.

When JFK died, Barack Obama was a todler. But in retroperspective, the death of JFK had a great influence on his way of living today. Pholus is illustrating that.
Pholus is seen as a ' catalyst'. Catalysts are not so obvious when they start working. They are important in retroperspective and in memoires. Transit Pholus was opposition progressed Sun of Obama on November 22, 1963. Because of the natal opposition of Sun and Pholus and the angular position of natal Pholus this transit was important.

Donald Trump for president? About Pluto in his chart.

Donald Trump announced that he is considering to be the Republican nominee for the presidency in 2012 and that he might spend $200 million dollar in order to win the elections. When Pluto is ‘calling’ in’ a chart (and when you have enough money to spend) it is hard to resist the call for power.

Pluto is the symbol of power, strategy, manipulation, influence, force and …politicis. Pluto doesn’t make a major aspect in sign or orb 5 degrees in the natal chart of Donald Trump. That means that Pluto will be manifested at any level, somehow, anyhow. His Pluto is square the Taurus Midheaven. It is a sort of a vocation to resonate Pluto in the career. His objective (Midheaven) is ‘to have’ (Taurus). Taurus is the money sign, related to the second house of money. Pluto is related to the 8th house of values. The combination of 2-8 and Venus-Pluto is the money axis. In the chart of Donald Trump there are no planets, sun or moon in earth signs. The absence of positions in earth signs creates a ‘call’ for material security. That is the driving force behind Donald Trump. With Jupiter semisesquisquare (67.5d) Pluto the planet of growth and successes joins the drive. But he has been poor, too…Continue for the chart and  more...

The match between Prince William and Kate Middleton

Prince William and Kate Middleton (soon Princess Catherine, I presume) share a strong Moon in Cancer. I quote myself:

When lovers have the same position of the Moon, they feel close and comfortable. Friends often have the same Moonsign. It makes you feel as if you belong together ('We are family').
This Moon might be important for keeping them together, as their Sunsigns don't match and their Mars are conjunct (for a lot of fire, and risk of quarrel). There is a lucky synastry aspect: Venus tredecile (108d) Venus. That means that although their preferences don't match (as the Venus signs don't match) they will find creative ways to settle things because of love. And that is what matters most when you want to get married...Continue for the links and for the chart drawing of Prince William with the transits of the day of birth of Kate Middeton.

Kate WILL be the bride!

Prince William will get married next year and Kate will be the bride.

Mercury inconjunct Jupiter (the thunder boy)

Imagine...Jupiter, at worst, can be very offended, annoyed, enraged and upset. Wodan (the German Jupiter) used to throw his hammer and start the lighting and thunder. That is what happens when Jupiter is discontented and wrathful. Mercury is for communications. An annoyed Jupiter using his voice and/or the pen to express that he is offended, angry and convinced of his own ideas. That is when Mercury-Jupiter is starting to use 'big words' (like 'God hates you').  Perhaps the 'big mouth' is another translation of Mercury-Jupiter at a certain level of communications? 

Today, November 13, is the birthday of Mr. Phelps, the hate speacher. He shows up at funerals to express his joy over the death of soldiers and homosexuals. He is a Christian fundamentalist. I have written about the position in his chart and in the chart of his Scorpio daughter before (link below), trying to explain them. Today I remembered that post and the fact that Phelps has Mercury inconjunct Jupiter. In the earlier post I hadn't so much mentioned that Mercury and Jupiter are 'calling' in his chart, so that this difficult aspect combination is prominent in his chart and will resonate at any possible level, somehow, anyhow. That makes his Mercury-Jupiter conflict a perfect example of what happens when balance is lost when you think that you are righter than right, when you are convinced of your intellectual superiority and when you don't seem to mind about the effect of your moral pronouncements. 

Aung Suu Kyi and the end of house arrest

The progressed Sunsign of Aun Suu Kyi has changed sign: time for a change in lifestyle. Her house arrest is over. Transit Uranus square natal Sun is another symbol of change (and nerves and upheaval).  What you don't see on this chart is that transit Quaoar is opposition progressed Mars. That is an indication of something happening outside/by others, that is creating a competition or fight. I wonder what will happen next.

Jim Morrison's transits and progressions

There is life after death in charts, progressions and transits, as I have noticed before. An example is the chart of Jim Morrison today. See his chart.  There is transit Uranus trine Midheaven and Progressed Sun almost trine Saturn. It means: positive (trine) change (Transit Uranus) in reputation or position (Midheaven) for the late singer of the Doors. The growing trine between the progressed Sun and Saturn is resonating 'getting respect'. What happens? 
He might be pardonned for indecent exposure during a concert in Miami in 1969! 

Here is the link to the news...

There is more about the talent in his chart on Art&Astrology:

Pholus and the fine of the Minister of Traffic

Isn't it interesting that transit Pholus is on the Sagittarian Sun of Vir Barta right now? Vit Barta is the Czech Minister of Traffic. His drivers' license has been supsended for 6 months. That is a punishement for using a sticker instead of an official   license plate (the original was stolen). 

Pholus is the symbol of shooting your own foot (or not being allowed to drive, even if you are the Minister of Transport).  Pholus might have a stronger 'shooting' effect in the sign of the Archer. Transit Pholus is conjunct his Sun and the progressed Sun is semi square natal Pholus...

There are more examples of the effect of Pholus on this blog (use the label)...Pholus is in Sagittarius right now (about 14 degrees). Maybe you, Sagittarius, didn't notice Pholus, yet. But if Pholus is important for you, you will...This asteroid pops up whenever there is a problem that could have been avoided. 

BTW I guess that he was in a hurry (Sun Sagittarius, Moon in Aries and Mars opposition Uranus). See the positions on his day of birth here:

The Saturn square Sun of King Carl Gustav of Sweden

Swedish King Carl Gustav faces a biography ("Carl XVI Gustaf - The reluctant monarch") with disreputable facts about his past 'wild life'. Transits and progressions with Saturn and Pluto involved tell us about the nasty effect of investigations. It happens to him with transit Saturn square progressed Sun. 
Saturn often symbolises critism and facing your mistakes. In his natal chart Saturn is exactly square Midheaven and transit Saturn is moving to an opposition with Midheaven. Maybe he will step back sooner than planned, next year...Saturn is the symbol of stepping back. However, earlier this year he stated that he wants to be king until he dies (see the post about that…). There are more difficult transits right now. Continue for a picture of his chart and for more about the transits and natal Saturn-Midheaven...

Conspicuous by absence

The not aspected planet and the element without placements are more just as important as the person who is conspicuous by absence. 

The missing link in the chart as an important clue


Harry Potter was written by J.K. Rowling. She has no aspects at all with the planet of communications, Mercury (apart from a very wide conjunction with Venus). How that works in her private life, I do not know. For writing and concentration you need silence and possible your contacts suffer when you are facing a deadline. But the fact she became an author is remarkable, giving this NA (Not Aspected) Mercury.
Jeanne d’Arc did not have planets in the element fire. Yet she became a warrior. And she died by fire. Oprah Winfrey has no planets in the element earth (the material element) and started very poor. Still she became one of the richest women in the world! Hillary Clinton also lacks earth signs and the Sun is only making one aspect: a quintile with Saturn. Rich Donald Trump has no placements in earth. Liz Greene has no planets in water signs but she occupies herself with the psychological side of astrology. Theo van Gogh –Dutch director - had no planets in water and was killed by Mohammed B, who has 60% of his planets in water signs. Michael Palin amuses people with his stories about travelling with anunaspected Venus in Gemini (an indication for the love of telling stories). Evita Perron did not have major aspects with Neptune and became a legend.

You see my point…That what your chart does not have is that what you seem to be looking for in life if it has not already found you…So find the missing link in your chart and see how to use it. No air, but maybe good aspects with Mercury or Venus? Like Mary J. Blige who communicates perfectly by means of her musical talent. Those who miss fire in their charts might look for the position and aspects of Mars or Jupiter. If you have a NA Mars, find the planet in Aries or Scorpio or look for another symbol of fire (like the Sun).

When you come on earth with a desire for material security because there is no such a basic security for youyou are eager to find it. Donald Trump used his Saturn, ruler sixth house of working and the conjunction with Venus (ruler of the tenth house of career) to make it in the world outside using his talent for knowing what is worthwhile. Oprah’s square between Venus and Saturn did the same. Donald and Oprah have no earth. Theo van Gogh had no water, but his chart has Sun square Neptune (a water sign ruler) andNeptune is the symbol of movies. You see people somehow compensate for the lacking element in their natal chart.

Some interpretations...

- No aspects with:
Sun = seeking for creativity, leadership and fame, health is important
Moon= seeking consistency in habits, a family, emotions
Mercury = seeking for contacts and ways for communication
Venus = seeking for love, kindness and sympathy
Mars = seeking for activities, work
Jupiter = seeking for a conviction or religion.Wants development.
Saturn = seeking for stability and security, status
Uranus = seeking for sensation, new items
Neptune = seeking mystic, romance, rest
Pluto = seeking challenges and influence

- Missing elements:

Fire = looking for possibilities to express aggression and feel vital
Earth = looking for possibilities to collect material and feel secure
Air = looking for social contacts and exchange of ideas
Water = looking for emotions and the feeling to ‘belong’

Fire signs are Aries, Leo and Sagittarius
Earth signs are Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn
Air signs are Gemini, Libra and Aquarius
Water signs are Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces

For examples of the importance of the planet (or Sun or Moon) without aspects within 5 degrees of orb (or in sign), see the label ' calling planet'.

Relationships and sharing aspects

 This post is about sharing the same aspect. For example when you have the same aspect in your chart as your partner, boss, family or enemy has.
Sharing aspects are reflecting shared experiences. 
People live and work together. Sometimes the planets in their chart interact. Sometimes people share an aspect. I mean, that in their charts both have a meaningful connection between the same two planets. When it is exactly the same aspect, this aspect is vivid and active in their relationship. It is exactly what they share. Continue for an indication of how to interprete shared aspects and for examples (like the shared aspects of Joran van der Sloot and Natalee Holloway).
