God hasn’t the news taken a strange & macabre twist these last few days? Call me squeamish but i found it a bit spooky to be confronted with the smashed in skull of a long dead King on my screen first thing in the a.m. King Richard III has been madly controversial all these years – once accused of having his young nephews smothered in the Tower (to assure his own smooth rise to rule) and then later defended as having been framed.
I’ve read Daughter Of Time – the acclaimed Josephine Tey detective novel that purports to prove him innocent and met peeps who belong to the Richard III society, who seem to idolize the man. This current exhumation (his remains were just found under a council carpark at apparently the behest of a psychic, who said she felt he was buried there) comes just as Saturn is near his Scorpio Ascendent and (this is the bit i love best) with Neptune on his IC, the very base of his chart.
His Libra Sun was opposite his Mars in Aries and he had a Uranus-Pluto conjunction in Leo – his life was indeed martial and defined by conflict, the Uranus-Pluto would probably stop at nothing to rule. Brutal times. So, thoughts? Team Richard?
