The Scorpio Queen

Filed in Scorpio

This is Queen Marie of Romania – Queen Victoria’s grand-daughter and  the most notorious royal of her day & wildly Scorpio: Sun-Mercury-Jupiter-Venus-Moon all tight together in Scorpio – check out her study! And Sagg Rising.

Known as the Soldier Queen she did an enormous amount of work fighting the German army, was a staunch supporter of the Red Cross – nursing in war zones etc, took lovers and bore their children (a massive scandal at the time) wrote childrens books & backed the Bahai faith, ostentatiously taking up meditation and gallivanting around swathed in incense, talking about mysticism.

It’s insanely cluttered for modern tastes but still I love her study!

Sagg Rising with all that Scorpio throbbing away is a really fascinating mix. These peeps – i know a few of them – are often supernaturally smart and libidinal.

My younger sister has her Sun, Venus, Jupiter, Pluto, mean node and Chiron in Scorpio. Virgo moon, dunno her rising sign. She’s very determined, she’s 15 and she knows she wants to work at Pixar and is very artistic. She wants to write children’s books as well. ;p

Love, love, love that room. My Moon in Scorpio maybe? It looks so lush and private.

Oh, life is a glorious cycle of song,
A medley of extemporanea;
And love is a thing that can never go wrong;
And I am Marie of Romania.

Love the new mouth Ms., and so agree. She’s definitely a Scorp with Shag Rising. Now, I realize Katakas are often pinned for having cluttered tastes and I am a bit atypical as such, but can you not see yourself having sex in this room?? It is such a RICH backdrop, wot I would call “cinematic”.. between the tiger pelt, the carved arches and the art littering the room, nudity seems only apropos. As well as strewn clothing though it’d be a nightmare to dust/clean.. And lastly, I’m so glad for women like her, they’re so involved in living their… Read more »

It’s MY past life! Well, almost…minus the Jupiter and Moon. But I am Scorp Sun with Sagg Rising. My Virgo Moon is a bit twitchy at all the clutter, but my Leo Jupiter loves the leopard on the couch and the huge mantel and columns.

Here’s her smaller, understated bedroom in Pelisor Castle, which she had built next to the more grandiose Pelis Castle, because she hated the opulence of the later. I do love the gilded headboard though!

That bed is so uninviting– just one long roll for the neck? No blankets? No comforter? It seems like a bed for someone who is an invalid and needs to be carried in and placed on it– or a place for laying out a corpse–

Probably has something to do with the fact that the castle is more of a museum now and no one is actually sleeping in the bedroom. I’m sure the queen had pillows a plenty and all manner of comfy linens when she was in residence. 😉

Wow! A fascinating and powerful mix. Would love to get my hands on one of her children’s books. I wonder was she into drugs too or just meditation ….

Thanks Mystic for another poignant insight, astro-sociologically.

I know an Aries with Scorp Moon and Sagg Rising. Not a Scorp Sun, but she IS ridiculously intelligent. I’ve yet to meet someone else as talented as she is.
