Here are a bunch of her quotes and some notes on the life and reign of Queen Victoria born May 24, 1819 (NS) in London @ 4:15 am LMT; ASC 6Gem58 with Sun 2Gem07 and Moon 3Gem42 in 12th house; royal Jupiter 16AQ55 in 10th house (a monarch's placement); MC 2AQ24.
NPR has a feature on the latest film portrayal of a young Victoria
by actress Emily Blount if you're as curious as a Sun Gem/Moon Gem personage might be.
On Sept 22, 1896, Queen Victoria surpassed George III as longest-reigning British monarch in history, and altogether she reigned for 63 years, 7 months, 2 days. Whew!
Then to the throne came her eldest son who reigned as Edward VII and who, like his father, was a member of the House of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha thus making Queen Victoria the last monarch of the House of Hanover. During WWI, George V, son of Edward VII, changed the Royal House name to Windsor to soften their German roots with the public (but some of us don't forget.)
Of course, as genetics will have it, the House of Hanover has Germanic origins, too.
Queen Victoria May 24, 1819 (NS):
Sun Gem/Moon Gem (Air-Air) is a high-strung blend of mental energies which tally well with her demeanor prior to Prince Albert's death, a time when she was more carefree and sassy as detailed in Emily Blount's performance (one assumes.)
Adventurous Air-Air combos are the most reasonable, civilized, and clear-headed of people, very cultured and elegant. Double Air types assume independence as their birthrights within the cerebral, witty ways of a natural communicator. A humorous childlike quality may be evident in the personality which thinks that complete objectivity is possible in this dualistic world.
Sun Gem/Moon Gem is a vivacious, flirtatious talker, always self-analyzing and often moody; a critical, fidgety social creature open to experience and able to bring together ideas and people in fruitful ways.
Yet so much nervousness can deplete energy, and living a double standard is a possibility with this live wire combo and its outrageous sense of fun.
Images for Integration: 'A butterfly in a garden tires of the bright blue delphinium and suddenly discovers the most exquisite red rose...A young child entertains his friends by standing on his head whilst eating an ice cream cone and playing marbles...A circus trapeze artist writes his biography.' (Sun Sign-Moon Sign, Chas & Suzi Harvey.)
This combo is shared natally by astrologer John Addey, Kylie Minogue, Brooke Shields, Dorothy Sayers, Salman Rushdie, John Marnard Keynes, and John Barrymore.
Here are 5 quotes from some of them, 2 from the great Queen Victoria herself:
"One of my chief regrets during my years in the theater is that I couldn't sit in the audience and watch me." - John Barrymore
"Ideas shape the course of history." - J. M. Keynes
"As I grow older and older
And totter toward the tomb,
I find that I care less and less
Who goes to bed with whom." - Dorothy Sayers
And now, from the Queen:
"His purity was too great, his aspiration too high for this poor miserable world! His great soul is now only enjoying that for which it was worthy!" (letter dated Dec 10, 1861 to King Leopold I of Belgium, concerning Prince Albert);
"Great events make me quiet and calm; it's only trifles that irritate my nerves."
An 81-year-old Queen Victoria passed away at Osbourne House (designed by Prince Albert and the place she spent every Christmas of her widowhood) on Jan 22, 1901. After her Feb 2 funeral she was interred beside her Prince in the Frogmore Mausoleum.
