Following the fall of the Ottoman Empire in 1918, the League of Nations defined the boundaries of Palestine, Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, and Jordan (chart for this decision below). Provision was made for a Jewish homeland in Palestine (Research by Michael Baigent cited by Nick Campion in appx. 6 of his ‘Book of World Horoscopes’ 1996.)
This coronation anointing chart is rich in its symbolism. Mercury retrograde screens us, we are not allowed to view the key ritual moment. The screen was put in place at 11.45 am with the MC at 27 Aries 04 and it was removed at 11:48 am with the MC at 27 Aries 54. During these three minutes, Jupiter at 27 Aries 37 crossed over the Westminster meridian. With spiritual Jupiter also lord of the 9th of deity, this passage marks the moment of Divine Right, the King as mediator between God and human, sacred and secular. The true moment of the coronation can be taken as Jupiter partile the MC.
At this moment the King is anointed with Chrism oil from the Mount of Olives (Jupiter), consecrated by the Patriarch at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem. In the chart, the anointing oil is revealed in the grand trine in water, especially Neptune, dignified in Pisces on the 9th cusp. The Moon in fall separates trine Mars in fall and applies trine Neptune. In the Christian Mysteries, fallen humanity seeks redemption. Through the anointing, Holy Spirit descends from the Father (Jupiter) and enters the temporal realm in the body and being of the King. Dedicated to God, the King serves the divine.
Leo rises and the King, Sun in the 10th, applies to Uranus, planet of modernity and the secular. His reign walks a fine line between monarchy and republic.
The hereditary nature of this succession is shown by Moon-Mars trine. The Moon at 24 Scorpio 41 is conjunct Queen Elizabeth’s Saturn at 24 Scorpio 26 and her MC at 25 Scorpio 32; in the sacred moment of the anointing, Charles takes on the mantle of his deceased mother. This fallen Scorpio Moon is in mutual reception with a fallen Mars at 22 Cancer 00 but when received by degree, Mars moves to 22 Scorpio 00, conjunct Charles’ natal Sun at 22 Scorpio 25. The contact mirrors the close natal synastry between the two monarchs (Elizabeth’s Sun 0 Taurus 12 and Charles’ Moon at 0 Taurus 25). With the received Mars on his Sun, he can now act as monarch.
The coronation of Queen Elizabeth took place on 2 June 1953, starting at 11:15 am. In Astrology Quarterly, Vol 27:4 p.122 Charles Carter records a time of 12:32 pm for the coronation moment with an MC of 5 Gemini 25 and Jupiter at 5 Gemini 35. Again, Jupiter on the MC! (Note also that Venus was at 27 Aries 42, ruling the 9th). – Maggie Hyde
Prince William looks well-placed to be the future king (Jupiter lord of asc conjunct MC, trine Sun and Moon). The ‘spare’ Harry has Pluto exactly on this Jupiter, triggered by current progressions.
The first degree of Taurus/Scorpio is strongly marked: Elizabeth SUN 0Tau12, Charles MOON in Xth 0Tau25. William’s opposing SCORPIO Jupiter suggests a total redefinition of the Monarchy, hastened by Harry’s war on its conventions.
Rishi Sunak, standing outside no.10, announces that he has ‘accepted his Majesty’s invitation to form a government in his name.‘ The ‘kissing of hands’ at Buckingham Palace (not broadcast) is estimated to have occurred not more than 20 minutes prior to the announcement. The exact co-occurrence of the New Moon (a partial solar eclipse) demands interpretation yet leads to powerful contradictions shaped by the context in which it is being interpreted. Diwali is a principal annual celebration for Hindus, Jains and Sikhs, tied to the eve of this New Moon of the lunar calendar. The festival symbolises the overcoming of demonic darkness by the Light. So, our new Prime Minister emerges as Tory leader on the formal day of Diwali on Monday 24th, and ‘as if’ elected by a court astrologer, announces his appointment on the 25th within minutes of the astrological portent to which it is undeniably tied, namely, a celebration of our first non-white Hindu Prime Minister. While wishing him well, do we view this in Western (tropical) light, the latter showing us the very degree of the Moon’s Fall with a dangerous Venus? A week on, strains over the Home Secretary (‘leaky Sue’) and accusations of ‘grubby deals’ are surfacing, and more is likely on the lunar eclipse of 8th November. This current New Moon being an eclipse – albeit not total) ill fits the notion of a popular coronation. Or shall we infer a Jyotish (sidereal) perspective with the New Moon in Libra and Venus redeemed? Perhaps the truth is not either-or but in some way both. – GC (30th Oct)
Saturn and Uranus hold the angles in the overturning of Roe v. Wade. How might competing goals be squared? ‘Life, liberty and happiness‘ – these show as Sun, Jupiter, Venus in the Sibly US horoscope Declaration of Independence (‘declared’ by Moon on IIIrd). The heartfelt goal of anti-abortion campaigners is to guarantee Life (Sun) to the foetus (Venus ruler Vth), from religion and through law (Sun ruler IX). Yet in secular democratic culture the foundation of Happiness, societal and individual, comes from women’s reproductive and sexual rights – hence IC conjunct US Venus in the 1973 Roe v Wade judgment (see below).. – GC
