Some say that today is the birthday of Jeanne D’Arc (or as the British who executed her would have it, Joan) and others – such as Astro-Databank – prefer the birthdate of January 15. Either way, she was certainly a Capricorn, rising from her peasant birth to become a religious and military leader, icon, martyr & finally saint…And all as a teenager. Poor thing.
I love what the Gemini novelist Francoise Sagan said of her: “I always believe things are going to work out. Every time I see a film about Joan of Arc I’m convinced she’ll get away with it. It’s the only way to get through life.”
The major astro in the Astro-Databank chart? Mars, Uranus & the North Node in Aquarius opposed by Lilith in Leo & trining Pluto + Saturn. Major visioneering and belief in manifest, utopian destiny with that lot…Neptune opposite Mercury…voices? Delusions?
Quick question for the Astro-Fiends: Does anyone have Neptune in tight aspect to Mercury & how do you experience it? Ghosts? Dreams? Visions? I have them in quincunx & it can be very interesting but erractic. eg: excellent e.s.p. but not on call.
