King Charles II was the Restoration king, the party king, coming after the Puritan rule of Taurus Cromwell, whose goal was to “reform the nations morals.”
What better a person to restore frivolity, sex, wits, freedom of speech, art and all to a puritan-weary nation than a Gemini King?
He kept packs of dogs and serveral other sorts of pets; his fave dogs – a particular type of spaniel – were named after him and his nickname was the Merrie Monarch.
“We have a pretty witty king,
And whose word no man relies on,
He never said a foolish thing,
And never did a wise one”
He loved the Aquarius actress/orange seller Nell Gwynne, whom he plucked from obscurity and showered with riches/titles etc AND the deeply Scorpionic Barbara Villiers, a countess + a schemer by birth.
He even supported Aphra Behn, a genius Cancerian playwright, spy and columnist – and considered the first English professional female writer. Despite the times, King Charles did not seem to be sexist.
His eyes look madly Gemini, mercurial, noting everything and composing his next witticism. yah?
“All women together ought to let flowers fall upon the tomb of Aphra Behn, which is, most scandalously but rather appropriately, in Westminster Abbey, for it was she who earned them the right to speak their minds. It is she–shady and amorous as she was–who makes it not quite fantastic for me to say to you tonight: Earn five hundred a year by your wits.”
