Martha Gellhorn Astrology Notes: She was a Scorpio with her Sun trine Neptune and square Chiron. You can see it at play in her life: she was a visionary who could have been a poet or celebrated wit. But Cosmic Detective Chiron sparked her sleuth skills. An incisive and gutsy journalist, she was one of the first people to break the news of what was going on at places like Dachau. She left home early to travel the world, writing fashion articles and investigative news stories with equal aplomb. “Nothing is better for self-esteem than survival,” she said.
“Martha was passionate and political, glamorous and exciting. She loved to drink and gossip and smoke and flirt. She was hugely entertaining and motivated by a deep-hearted, deep-seated concern for justice; the friend of the dispossessed, the oppressed, the neglected. And she was a good writer.” She just happened to be beautiful into the bargain.
Martha Gellhorn Astrology: Plutonic And Eloquent
She shunned cloying relationships and took up with lovers more in the way that male writers of her generation picked up and discarded their women. She’d go the second things went wrong and was devoted to her beauty and grooming. Ernest Hemmingway, one of her partners, said of her that she had only two speeds: “running away or asleep.”
The real Martha Gellhorn Astrology story is Pluto conjunct the North Node in Gemini. You always see that in people who become icons or voices for their generation. Her Mercury trined that Pluto/Node, reflecting in her copious writings. She was also Mars square Neptune and Venus opposite Saturn. Mars-Neptune is drawn to complex, magical seeming men while Venus needs consistency and stability. Though a Scorpio, she had more Air than anything else and think about that Mercury trine Pluto on the Node in Gemini, the sign of the Scribe.
She found her most enduring love in words and ideas; the thrill of breaking stories and parsing weird times through her eloquence.
