Tenacious Taurus Queen Elizabeth, Astrology & Birth Chart!
The Monarch is a Capricorn Rising, with Saturn on the Midheaven: Heavy is the Crown...
Dear Lizzie is:
The Queen currently has Pluto arriving on her ascendant – 21º Capricorn.
This has been a poignant degree through the Covid crisis and pandemic, as celestial activity landed around this point in 2020.
But Queen Elizabeth II also had Prince Andrew to deal with, the loss of her long-time love and husband Phillip, and a reckoning of the Royal Family and its future.
Let us not forget that Liz is an elderly lady, and has to contend with Uranus on her Sun a few times too!
That’s a lot for the old dear, wishing her all the peace and love…
Queen Elizabeth II Birth Chart…
Born on 21 April 1926 Wednesday, April 21, 1926, 2:40 AM in Mayfair, London – via astrotheme…
Interestingly, the Queen was born with responsible Saturn (her chart ruler, as a Capricorn Rising) on the point of prominence, fame and vocational life, her Midheaven.
She is known to all as a serious (Saturnian) ruler, who takes her responsibilities in her stride. She came to power young, so had a lack of youth thanks to her career as a leader. She is also known as a Lizard or Reptilian among conspiracists! And Scorpio is synonymous with slithery things, lizards, newts and witches…
A Taurus, we see her face as a Venusian marker: value and wealth.
Not only on paper notes and real-world pennies and pounds, Lizzie is seen on stamps, to denote a certain amount of worth. Again, the word stamp feels Saturnian, as it’s quite final (as anyone who has tried to peel off a stamp from an envelope can attest!) Her face (first house, Capricorn), presented at large (Saturn on the Midheaven).
Taurus In Pink, With Leo Starburst Pin…
With the Moon in Leo, and Neptune in Leo, the Queen of England suits all the jewels and crowns bestowed upon her lion-like head, and is thankfully at ease with her Royal Role – the loyalty she shows to people, working for one-and-for all!
The Queen Mother had Sun and Mercury in Leo too, and both have that short cropped hairstyle, like a lion!
Queenie is all about what she can do for others, with that Moon in the 8th house (and the North Node on her Descendant). In fact, Neptune in the 8th forms the apex of a Yod (almost), or Finger of God, between her Ascendant, Uranus and Neptune.
However, we see a T-square arise between Saturn-Midheaven, Mars-Jupiter and Neptune.
Mars-Jupiter at odds with this notion in Aquarius might reflect her coldness and personal approach to human issues, and her role as not all that warm.
I read this as suggesting the job she wants to do, and the reputation she is to uphold are at odds, not only making her stiff and unable to really act, but cutting off the warmth she needs to express – it gets lost!
In the TV show The Crown, she had to go through a learning experience around being more human and less austere – with Scorpio Son / Leo Rising Prince Charles as a catalyst, but also in response to her people and the public (during the disaster at the mine in Wales).
It seems as if the Shakespearian quote ‘uneasy is the head that wears a crown’ from Henry IV Part 2 could have been written for the Queen.
Paraphrased as ‘heavy is the head the wears the crown’, those charged with carrying a heavy burden makes it difficult for them to relax. Shakespeare (born April 23, 1564) was a Taurus with Mercury in Aries too!
So fitting for our formal ruler!
