Susan Boyle: The meltdown and her next chapter

Susan BoyleThe meteoric rise of Susan Boyle has been like a fabulous firework which rockets into the sky out of nowhere, explodes itself across the heavens, and then falls to earth again forever changed.

You can read more about Susan’s birthchart and astrological profile here, and about how the current planetary cycles affected her meteoric rise.

Over the past week there were signs of trouble; stories of meltdowns and of Susan being rushed to a safe house where the stress wouldn’t overwhelm her ability to compete in the final round of Britain’s Got Talent  last night.  As mentioned in my profile of Susan, she has a sensitive opposition between the Sun (conscious mind) and the Moon (emotional sensitivity) which shows a tendency to be somewhat reactive emotionally. This is exacerbated by a square of Mars (aggression)  to the Moon and Sun, especially because her Mars is in the nurturing sign of Cancer where its aggressive instinct does not get a strong outlet.  There is often a pattern of resentment and built-up anger that results.  This is particularly true for someone like Susan with an Aries Sun, ruled by Mars, who needs to be able to clearly express that inner aggression.  This is not the chart of someone who responds well to stress.

At the time of these meltdowns Susan was experiencing a transit of Mars over her Venus. Venus describes the way we interact with others, and Mars of course expresses our aggression and our ability to defend ourselves, so when Mars hit her Venus exactly on May 27, there was an eruption.

The Midheaven is the point in the chart that describes our career and public life, and in the progressed chart (the evolving chart that shows how our career life changes) […]

The astrology of singer Susan Boyle: Corrected birth date and time

Susan BoyleUpdated 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.
