New Year 2012 Murder in the UK: Who Will Question the Queen?
by Jude Cowell
On New Years Day 2012, mayhem was discovered--a woman's dead body turned up in the woodlands in or near the grounds of Queen Elizabeth's Sandringham estate where the royals partied over the weekend to welcome New Year 2012.
Since hunting and horse-riding are favorite royal pursuits at Sandringham perhaps *Adriano Carelli's degree symbol for the Sun on January 1st--the Solar Return date for 2012 to the horoscope of modern UK's founding on Jan 1, 1801 12:00 am -1:00 (historical record) will apply as the UK's 211th birthday is imprinted by a mysterious (last I heard--perhaps more will come out) death of a female, as it's been reported (see article links, below.)
Carelli gives what I believe is a quite-applicable symbol for '11 Capricorn', the rounded-up degree of the UK's natal Sun--and of the Sun's degree on the day the remains were found:
"A king wearing the crown and seated on the throne receives an envelope from a messenger or an ambassador."
"A minor feature of this influence is fondness for horsemanship," says Carelli, along with mention of secrecy, reserve, worldly wisdom, cunning, diplomacy and, "--if need be, double-dealing." Well, yes. Monarchy and Politics can be a lethal combo at times, can't it?
Carelli adds that '11Cap' is the degree of equidistance (his Sun/Moon midpoint) of Lloyd George who was, among other things, Britain's senior representative in Paris at the Treaty of Versailles negotiations and signing.
Queen Elizabeth II
Comparing the natal and progressed charts of Queen Elizabeth II (as rep for the UK itself) with a horoscope set for Sandringham Norfolk, 12 am on January 1, 2012, there are astro-links galore all of which I do not have time to detail for you here.
There are, however, indications of passion (Venus/Mars) on the scene (in the New Years Day 2012 chart) and unhealthy romantic attachments, or, deceiving or a deceptive woman (tr Venus opposite QEII's natal Neptune), no-win situations and people dropping in unannounced (tr Venus opposite her n Moon in partying Leo), and potentials for danger, disastrous encounters, disrupted gatherings (tr Mars opposite n Uranus) or even violence. (See QEII's natal Sun degree, just below.)
And with tr Saturn opposing her natal Sun these days, any failure to live up to past promises comes back to haunt her now. And of course, these transits probably apply somewhere in her experience whether she knows about the mysterious body or not. Its discovery in proximity to the Royal Family's Sandringham estate may be only a coincidence.
(Interestingly, the Queen's natal Sun 00Tau12 was recently conjoined by Jupiter's Direct Station on Dec 25, 2011 @ 00Tau22, with '00-1Tau' being 'degrees of violence', according to how aggressively Adolf Hitler acted every time his natal Sun at that degree was triggered during his salad days--'Hitler's trigger degree" which relates to actions based on ego concerns.)
Yet the Queen's war time experiences may be all that is denoted by her having natal Sun in the 00-1 Tau range though we may wish to note her family's true origins in Germany (the 'Windsor' family name only goes back to 1917.)
Plus, Queen E's natal Moon--the reigning need, says Noel Tyl--is in Leo 12:07--indicating one born with a bottomless pit in the approval-applause-appreciation department, plus, as you know, royal Leo is the 'natural ruler' sign which is ruled by the Sun...ego.
My guess is that all the royal pageantry in her life suits the lady's emotional needs as seen by how Elizabeth took to her sudden turn at rulership like a hungry duck on a junebug intent on satisfying its reigning need for sustenance.
Did an old love return to haunt one of the royals? Was the departed lady a guard or an agent on the castle's or the government's payroll? Or a messenger? (a la '11Cap' noted above.) Well, the January 1, 2012 chart set for Sandringham @ 12:00 am shows transit Moon in Taurus precisely opposite Elizabeth's natal Saturn in powerful Scorpio at Midheaven (Sco)--Saturn @ natal MC = a monarch.
Will someone's authority, security, stability, or the status quo (Saturn) be challenged (opposition) by a woman, by The People, or by media curiosity (Moon = women; the populace; publicity) as the Moon reflects her natal and ruling Saturn posited at the very pinnacle (MC = Goal; Aspiration; Public Status; Career, across the 4/10 'security' axis. Her Nibs possesses an Angular Saturn expressing facets of mature authority--functioning authoritatively--on the world stage) as shown in her natal horoscope and issuing from her inner psyche and Saturn's gift of longevity has merited Queen Elizabeth II her celebratory Jubilee.
That's due to the fact that she has never stinted on doing her duty though this much of Saturn's coldness may be difficult in personal relationships with children feeling the adult's icy personality most deeply in many cases.
Year 2012 minus 12 years = Year 2000
Then there's royal Jupiter's recent station on Elizabeth's natal Sun spotlighting a time when one mustn't get carried away with one's own self importance and self-indulgence may be prominent (a New Years Eve party extraordinaire?); plus, Jupiter-to-natal- Sun marks a period when an endeavor begun twelve years before must either move forward expansively, or come to an end.
Now two chart factors that 'pop out' at me in Elizabeth's Secondary Progressions is Sec ASC = Sec Saturn/Pluto: being placed in cumbersome or difficult circumstances (ex: a dead body turning up on one's property especially when one values one's privacy and security so very very much); separation; mourning and bereavement.
Additionally, Sec ASC = Sec Venus/Mars (passion!): a lively expression of feelings. (Ebertin.)
Let's hope that for the Royal Family and their possible involvement in this mysterious event, that someone's emotional 'expression' wasn't lively enough to cause another's sad bereavement.
However the case may be, I am merely astrologizing here so how about a few early January links to The Guardian's more factual coverage of this remains in woodlands mystery?
For a lighter diversion, let's start with Jan 1, 2012 as artist David Hockney to be awarded the Order of Merit--he who Once Upon a Time refused to paint Elizabeth II or to accept a knighthood;
Jan 2: the Queen's "best diamonds" to go on display in honor of her 50-year jubilee--longer than Maggie Thatcher's reign who had natal Saturn--also in Scorpio--rising and conjunct Ronald Reagan's natal Jupiter in mid-Scorpio;
Jan 3: Sandringham murder inquiry launched after body discovered;
Jan 4: DNA being checked against that of missing women of foreign origins.
So far, I have not found mention of how long the woman's remains were around and we'll see as the year proceeds whether this news will be only a blip on the screen of royal info control--or, if Britain's royal family members know absolutely nothing about the matter.
Or some explanation in between.
Oops! There is one more factor I shall note: a Sabian Symbol that is activated in the Queen's current Progressions:
Sec ASC '27Gemini' = "A Gypsy Coming Out of the Forest Gazes at Far Cities"...or, perhaps gazing from the woodlands at a far castle?
