This is a letter from the author Stephen King to a prospective publisher, sent when S.K. was aged 14.
Obviously, he went on to become a stupendously successful author. I love the vibe of this note.
Fourteen is an amazing age, astrologically, it’s the first Uranus transit to itself: Uranus sextile Uranus and Saturn opposes your natal Saturn as well. So think major quickening of your individuality, revolutionary impulses and of course Saturn tromping down hard usually in the form of parental restrictions/realization your parents are not God/demands of secondary school.
But leaving aside Saturn for a moment – PLEASE – the seeds of individuation are so strongly sown at 14. I’d say that if you analyzed your core interests and life stance at this age, it’s pretty close to the man-woman you will be later on. You’re also maybe experimenting with strong feelings of lust/love/attraction but unlikely to be hampered by the demands of an actual relationship lol. Perfect conditions for creative incubation.
Stephen King has one of the classic indicators of a writer who taps into the Zeitgeist enough to just sell shitloads of books; Mercury conjunct Neptune. Mercury conjunct any outer planet pretty much hooks your creative output/words into the Zeitgeist.
(J.K. Rowling has Mercury conjunct Uranus.)
He’s also got Moon in Saggo which a LOT of successful writers seem to have…not sure why. Maybe as they like the emo freedom to say what they want that fiction bestows?
