The astrology of L’Wren Scott

Lwren ScottDear readers – do not despair, I will soon be bringing you soothing words to calm your fears over the upcoming Grand Cross that is causing tabloid news to shiver around the globe.  But meanwhile I have been fascinated with the personage that was L’Wren Scott who took her own life last week.

The birthchart of L’Wren Scott (born 4/28/1964 time unknown) shows someone who was born at the peak of the conjunction of Uranus to Pluto in 1964, with the Sun in Taurus.  The Uranus/Pluto conjunction presided over the huge social cataclysm that we now call “The Sixties” – individuals who were born between 1962 and 1968 carry this archetype in their charts and are driven to create social change and transformation.  Between 1964 and 1966 Saturn and Chiron opposed the Uranus/Pluto conjunction, and all of you born during those years have a certain degree of painful challenges (Saturn) and emotional wounds (Chiron) that require constant disruption and transformation (Uranus/Pluto).

What interests me about L’Wren is the difficulty she seems to have had establishing an identity of her own.  She was adopted into a Mormon family and then changed her name at age 18 when she began a career as a fashion model in Paris.  During her Saturn Return she moved to LA and became a PR rep for Prada and then a stylist to the stars.  Her chart is a lucky one, with the Sun conjunct both Mercury (intelligence) and Jupiter (good fortune), but the Sun makes an opposition to Neptune, the planet of mystical transcendence, illusion and delusion.

Neptune/Sun people find it difficult to figure out who they are, and worse, they are misperceived by others (see my earlier post on this topic).  L’Wren […]

The Queen and the First Lady, and a look at the Obama marriage

Michelle ObamaQueen Elizabeth is not known to be particularly casual in her willingness to break from protocol.  Royal etiquette is quite clear: “Whatever you do, don’t touch the Queen!”  So Britons were shocked to see Michelle Obama put her hand on the small of the Queen’s back in a gesture of affection to which the Queen responded by placing her own arm around the First Lady.

Dressed in one of her famous “J Crew Ensembles,” Michelle Obama is charming her way across Britain just as she did the US, and her popularity is soaring.  I have been waiting to profile her, hoping we would find a birth time, but so far none is available.  I can wait no longer!

Michelle Robinson Obama (1/17/64, time unknown, Chicago) was born with the Sun in Capricorn, the sign of hard work, diligence, and achievement.  The individual with a Capricorn Sun is driven to achieve something that the world around them recognizes as success.  There is a strong streak of practicality and ambition in any Capricorn.

We don’t know the exact placement of her Moon, which could be in either the late degrees of Aquarius or the early degrees of Pisces, but Venus in her chart is in Pisces.  Venus describes the way we relate to others, and that Pisces Venus reflects Mrs. Obama’s compassion and empathy.  Pisces is the soft side to her tough Capricorn exterior which is a lovely combination for a skilled political wife and especially for the First Lady of the United States.

Mrs. Obama’s Mercury is in Capricorn, identifying her as a shrewd and practical thinker with a good head for business.  Mercury is in a harmonious sextile to Venus and possibly her Moon, giving her a skill in communicating […]
