The astrology of Dylan (Malone) Farrow and Woody Allen

Update: Dylan’s date of birth has been corrected since I first wrote this article, changing the analysis which is reflected in the edits below.  

Dylan (now called Malone) Farrow has been in the news recently after an article about the various scandals surrounding Woody Allen appeared in Vanity Fair in November.  This article reports that Dylan was first molested at the age of seven, which from an astrologer’s perspective is the time of the first “Saturn Square,” when Saturn in the sky makes a square to Saturn in the birthchart.  Saturn’s orbit is 28 years, so the Saturn cycle consists of the opening square (90 degree angle) at age 7, the opposition at 14, the closing square is at age 21 and the Saturn Return ends the first cycle at age 28.

Then I was fascinated by the fact that Dylan/Malone, who has been out of the public eye for many years, revealed herself at age 28 in an article in which she discusses a suicide attempt at age 21.  So we have the first episode at age seven, a suicide attempt at age 21, and the conclusion through revelation at age 28 – clearly tied to Saturn somehow.

According to Wikipedia Dylan was born July 11, 1985.    Her progressed Saturn has been nearing a conjunction to natal Saturn over the past several years (Saturn moves slowly through the natal chart and this is a sort of progressed Saturn return) which culminated in October of 2013.   The end of that cycle coincided with the publication of the Vanity Fair article which was likely written earlier in 2013.  Her Saturn Return is exact right now which will hopefully complete the cycle of abuse and healing.

Those of us who have survived sexual violence often feel that we are all alone and that we will never survive the damage that was caused to us.  However, I have seen great transformation occur both in myself and in the lives of clients as truths are revealed and healing takes place.

      Wrong date of birth? What’s the right date, can you tell me?

        Craig was a hit and run commenter.

    All of the references to the Saturn cycle are still relevant and accurate.

    Unlike Craig, I would like to commend you for discussing this issue! Thanks for also briefly including yourself and your history in this matter, I’m very moved.

    glad you did dylan’s analysis; I lived on UES. Woody plays at the Carlye Hotel/madison ave on thurs nights. His aura and disposition was always suspicious. Dylan’s emotional expressions (cutting herself, suicidal, etc) are enough evidence.

    As horrific as child sexual abuse is, it must be acknowledged that false accusations are also incredibly damaging, although obviously not to the extent that real abuse is. And, as a survivor of rape who tried and failed to get her rapist caught, I know how painful it is to live with that injustice, as well as to live with hurtful comments that blame the victim.

    Having said that, I must respectfully question whether your own personal experiences might have colored your astrological interpretation somewhat. As astrologers, we know how our own perceptions can influence how we read charts — and it is always easier to find the answers to a specific event after the fact. While your observation of the Saturn cycle and the Pluto transit are compelling on one level, we also know that other interpretations are possible, which might be made if one didn’t automatically assume that Woody had molested Dylan. Pluto opposing the Sun, for example, can also indicate destruction of the father. And a Saturn return indicates a coming of age, and establishing oneself as an adult. IF (note that I say “IF”) Dylan is suffering from false memories, she could be trying to establish herself, however painfully, as an adult by repeating the child abuse accusations now (as Saturn, along with the Sun, represents the father).

    I am not sure who is telling the truth in this matter, although I admit I lean toward Woody. I think it would be most revealing to examine more thoroughly each party’s natal chart and transits (and this includes Mia), rather than picking out a couple of powerful transits in one person’s chart. While this may be beyond the scope of your article, I think it would shed more light on what each individual is capable of and inclined to do or think. Ultimately, however, since none of us can know with 100% certainty what all has happened to Dylan in her life, our interpretations will have to remain just that — interpretations.

    Dylan’s birth date is reported to be July 11th.

    To claim an astrologer is biased only because she herself suffered abuse is rather cold and inappropriate. If true, then very few women would be trusted to speak out on these matters, and the only voices heard would be from white males. But I gather that thought would be rather appealing to you?

    I feel it refreshing to hear the perspective from someone who doesn’t belittle the plight of the victim, and I’m sure any decent astrologer will know how to keep his or hers private and personal life separated.

      Thanks for the update on the date of birth – when I wrote the article it was listed as July 1st. I corrected the article and this eliminates the Pluto factor.

      To respond to Colleen’s allegations, I don’t believe that my personal experience has anything to do with my comments about the astrology of these events that correspond to Saturn cycles in the life of this individual. My objective in profiling public people is to present the astrology at work in their lives without allowing my own judgment to color the profile. Since I am human, this is not always 100% possible.
