It is the birthday of Katherine Hepburn.
She was a Multiple Conjunct Taurus – Sun, Moon and Mercury – with Scorpio Rising. Venus in Aries and in the 6th House. Note ornery Taurean stubborness and how Venus-in-Aries is independent trailblazer, shunning marriage to be mistress to Spencer Tracy…
Taurus with Scorp Rising is sooo fixed. So sensual.
“She was obsessed with flowers. She couldn’t relax unless fresh flowers were in every room. When she repaired to Fenwick from her town house in New York, she would take the flowers with her. Sometimes, she could be seen leaping out of her car to pick wildflowers by the side of the road.
She kept a fire burning in the fireplace at all times, even in L.A., even in Summer.
She was equally obsessed with hydration, both drinking enough water and making sure people urinated frequently.
She never sat in a chair if she could help it. Her customary after-dinner position? Sprawled out on her stomach. “Helps the digestion.”
She took a gazillion showers every day. She didn’t like eating out in restaurants because she found them too expensive. At seventy-one she took up jogging. With Greta Garbo, then seventy-three.”
