Anne Bonny was a rebel, a beauty and an amazingly resourceful pirate of her day. Plus she was a Piscean. Born on March 8 1700, her Dad was the married employer of a household in Ireland, her mother the maid. Anne Bonny was raised in Carolina, where she married a small time pirate but ran off with another one, the infamous Calico Jack Rackham – a Capricorn.
There are SO many stories about this woman: Some say that her husband offered to “sell” her (a then-existent quickie divorce fee) to her pirate lover but she refused and was thus sentenced to be flogged for infidelity. But she escaped and became a notorious pirate, plunderer and raider. The only other female pirate of the era (ever?) was Mary Read, her rumoured lover. At one point, Anne Bonny was captured and sentenced to be executed but again, she mysteriously escaped & nothing was ever heard of her again.
Her astro: Sun, Mercury and Saturn in Pisces…trined by Mars in Scorpio…Jupiter in Capricorn, Lilith in Aquarius opposite Pluto in Leo, Venus/Neptune in Aries square Uranus in Cancer…Venus/Neptune square Uranus would be QUITE the handful at any time, let alone then – no wonder the woman became a pirate.
Thoughts; Did she actually storm ships with her tits out or is that just how the artists liked to depict her??? A la her unconventional lifestyle. And really, for a woman of that time, her lifestyle was about as non-trad as you can possibly get. I am thinking she had her Uranus in Cancer rising, as she also had children. Fancy combining THAT with pirating. Then.
Mars LOVES to be in Scorpio….Remember that Mars ruled Scorpio before Pluto was discovered.
