Updated with new birth date and time.
The You Tube video of Susan Boyle’s audition for “Britain’s Got Talent” has become a sensation all over the world. When an average person shoots from obscurity to international acclaim literally overnight, there is usually a very interesting astrological background.
Date of birth saga. A birth date (June 15, 1961, time unknown, Blackburn, West Lothian, Scotland) was posted in a profile in the Sunday Times in the UK, but this was later disputed by the UK astrology website Cainer.com who obtained the date of April 1, 1961 from the publicist at Britain’s Got Talent. This date was confirmed by telephone by David Nicholson at Cainer who called the Registrar of birth records in Bathgate. Marjorie Orr had a birth time of 9:50 am on her site, which she told me came from Caroline Gerard, a genealogist in Scotland, and this birth time was confirmed by Kathryn Cassidy (who also works for Cainer) this morning.
This has set up an interesting conundrum for astrologers because we really like the other chart – it fits perfectly with our idea of who Susan Boyle is. But this is the pitfall of doing an astrological profile of celebrities about whom virtually nothing is known – they become nothing more than a hook for our own projections. I find that the most surprising readings that I ever do are for acquaintances whom I know slightly. I have an idea of who they are, and then when I do the chart it doesn’t fit with my concept of that person, but it fits exactly with who they really are..
So I have posted the new chart here, and have thrown away my fantasy of who I think Susan Boyle is.
