Queen Elizabeth and Cousin George partay!

With more than a whiff of scandal in the exalted air in the US and Britain, it seems appropriate that Queen Elizabeth II has the same natal Sun-Moon personality blend as the Jamestown Colony (May 3, 1607 NS, sunrise: 5:07:32 am LMT, Sun/ASC 12Tau24, Moon 4Leo50.)

For speed purposes I'll be referring to the British monarch here as QE2--no disrepect intended...natal chart bwo AstroDataBank: Apr 21, 1926; 2:40 am BST, from official records...birthplace London, of course.

QE2's natal Sun is earlier in Taurus 00:12 conjunct Chiron--although out-of-sign with Chiron 28Ari01. With Sun conj Chiron, our full sense of self, of being who we are, is connected to the degree by which we experience spirituality and higher consciousness, and relates to identifying our dharma, or life's work.

She's always seemed to me to have an excellent sense of who she is, royal "WEs" to the contrary. However, her closest--and only--applying aspect to natal Sun is a nagging 'minor' semi-square with Venus (1A15)--perhaps showing in part the stiff view of her personality held by the public (with Saturn at MC, the most public point in any chart, doing the rest.)

A waxing (unconscious) Sun/Chiron conj (2S11) gives a very strong and innate sense of destiny with normal life patterns rarely if ever lived out (Chiron, Barbara Hand Clow.)

If you were Queen, you'd be above the crowd and feeling Saturn's isolation as well, and having her duty-bound Saturn at MC and in powerful Scorpio has made her path clear...Saturn's authority gave her no options but to follow the family business of monarchy.

Plus, natal SN (a separative point and Saturnian to boot) conj n ASC places the Lady 'outstanding in her own field'...and separates her from all but the closest relations. Having SN conj ASC may cause problems with them as well!

There's no time to delineate her entire natal chart, more's the pity, but I want to mention a few more interesting factors relating to her current US visit including the Sun Tau/Moon Leo synchronicity with Jamestown's founding.

This is a good time to give the regal, vain Sun Tau/Moon Leo blend with its fixed opinion tendencies and its materialistic, snobbish, and masterful traits:

Images: On a perfect summer's eve, a performance of A Midsummer Night's Dream is held in the palace garden...Keeping up with the Joneses. (If she's here to check up on and rein in Cousin George, then we must be the Joneses!)

And here is a timely quote from QE2 herself:

"True patriotism doesn't exclude an understanding of the patriotism of others."

A most riveting observation considering with whom she's cavorting this weekend...perhaps she should've mentioned it to Cheney prior to 2000 and 2003.

QE2 shares this natal blend with Moshe Dayan, who said:

"Whenever you accept our views, we shall be in complete agreement with you."

Wonder who'll be carrying the bigger cattle prod in Washington on Monday? Couldn't Cousin George just have shipped over the gold as usual? But they had more big fish to fry, it further...

Another of her natal chart features worth mentionally is her Pluto/NN conj with its obvious 'power-as-destiny' flavor. This is the 'tiger-by-the-tail' aspect which gives QE2 the drive and determination to take advantage of prevailing social trends to her advantage (hullo, Jamestown, VA Tech, and Kentucky Derby!) Plu/NN has an even more deliberate and calculating quality than an Uranus/NN conj--which Bush has natally.

The Pluto/NN conj has a dangerous tendency to manipulate social forces which are often too large to handle safely. 'We' may find ourselves entrapped or crushed by the weight of circumstances in which we embroil ourselves (and as in all astrology and LIFE, we may experience this happening to others in our environment--ex: perfect description for the fates of Princess Diana and Dodi Fayed esp since North Node represents a fated path or destiny.)

This affairs-out-of-hand quality of Plu/NN conjs may collapse existing structures in a dangerous way. Yeah. Same with the Middle East, thanks a bunch.

But back to QE2's jolly US vacation...

With her natal Saturn 24Sco27, I looked at her arrival chart using tr Moon 24Sco27 which actually timed perfectly with May 3 of her arrival upon our shores.

As her visit progresses, tr Moon crosses tr Jupiter 18Sag15 Rx--a pleasant contact--and then tr Pluto 28Sag37, a point conjuncting Fixed Star, Acumen, keywords: enduring attacks which weaken.

Someone is feeling isolated, alone, and weakened, and the Moon is here to (among other things) buck him up, it would seem. You may be tempted to think this refers only to Bush, but check out this midpoint picture which has been ongoing with tr Saturn 18Leo27...stomping between QE2's n Moon/Neptune:

Moon/Nep = tr Saturn: pessimism; despair; influenced strongly by prevailing and temporary circumstances and conditions; feeling frustrated or paralyzed; hard work to shake off indolence; sense of suffering under the yoke (probably a permanent condition with her motto, duty first, self second); restructuring ambition.

Hey, I know--she and Bush and their elitist cronies could pay for restructuring and rebuilding Iraq! Sometimes I have good ideas.

So after tr Moon visits Jupiter (Cheney?) and Pluto (your guess is as good as mine--Bush perhaps?) Moon will conj QE2's natal ASC on the night of the State Banquet at the White House, Monday, May 7...21Cap23. And of course, Sagittarius is the sign of the half HORSE/half man centaur--she throws down at the Kentucky Derby on Saturday!

By Monday, the Sun Tau/Moon Cap blend gives this *Image/word picture:

A royal banquet honours the longest-serving headmistress of the oldest most prestigious school in the land. (Sometimes Astrology amazes!)

So tr Moon (as QE2 herself--and the Moon makes a good timer) goes from the beginning of her trip to the Monday night barbeque (please, George, tell me you'll allow decent fare to be served!) beginning with her 9th house Saturn (albeit closely conj n MC 25Sco33), through her 11th house of Groups/Associations/Hopes and Wishes--Partay!...then through her behind-the-scenes 12th house of Karma and Self-Undoing, and on to conj natal Ascendant on Monday night: 21Cap23.

This gives three midpoint pictures as tr Moon approaches, goes between, and passes Jupiter and Pluto...

Moon/Plu = Jup: emotional conviction guides a new start; establishing one's new position with a gut feeling (oh dear--not again); great success; lucky chances;

Jup/Plu = Moon: the desire to bring about social improvements and aspirations; the ability to influence the masses or the public bwo an appeal to the emotions; a good psychologist (Bush and Cheney could use one--have at it, Old Girl!);

Moon/Jup = Pluto: an extraordinary and usual striving for possessions and wealth; the urge to start great enterprises (deja-vu?); major plans for major triumph; the big picture and the power to make it appear.

Well, isn't this nice? It is for them--tr NN (meetings; encounters; associations) is conjuncting QE2's n Venus, planet of relationships, money, and pleasant social functions--NN to Venus = cultural get-togethers.

May we only hope that the White House pretzels aren't too stale for the royal palate!

Tuesday she'll wing her way back to her own realm (that is, if you think Cornwallis' Surrender was for real and that American independence is lasting into 2007) where Tony Blair's Labour Party has just and justly suffered embarrassing defeats based primarily on Blair's support of the Bush-Cheney invasion of Iraq. And ten years in power seems like a mighty long time.

It'll be a royal wee wee wee, all the way home.

So why not close with a few bon mots from Peter Pan author J.M. Barrie, another Scotsman, who so winningly said:

"You've forgotten the grandest moral attribute of a Scotsman, Maggie, that he'll do nothing which might damage his career."
