“Sport hunting is a crime. My sympathies are with the fox.”
My god, no wonder the British establishment did not like Wallis Simpson. She not only took off with the King of the day – who had to abdicate in 1936 so that he could marry this twice divorced lady, she was against fox hunting.
The hatred against Ms Simpson was immense; she was called “that woman”, a Nazi, a spy, a man, a nymphomaniac, a gold digger, a monarchy wrecking (a step above mere home wrecking) monster. She had baggage, a childhood marked by poverty and a first marriage to a brutal alcoholic. If she wanted riches and to be doted upon, who could blame her?
Even before hooking up with King Edward, she was loathed by many for her compulsive dieting, apparently raspy voice and money obsession. An early adopter of “drunkorexia” – where you swap dinner for a few drinks – she probably did quip “You can never be too rich or too thin.” She loved scented lilies and L’Heure Bleu but she hated heights and flying.
She was a Gemini and no ordinary Gemini – she was a multiple conjunct Gemini, with Pluto, Retro Mercury, Venus, Neptune and the Sun all in that most Mercurial of Air signs. Her Venus-Neptune conjunct the Fixed Woman Warrior star Bellatrix – fittingly, for as the most loathed woman of her era, she had to fight all the time. Her weapons? Jewels, out-dressing everyone, love (hopefully) and the steely sangfroid of her Aquarius Rising.
Add her Libra Moon into this and you see that her Astral Signature was Air. She had NO EARTH. She did not give a flying fuq about the protocol and tradition of the royal family. She was named “Woman of the Year” by Time magazine in 1936, the first time the “man of the year” was a woman. It was purely for her notoriety but still, imagine what she could have pulled off if born into different times?
Her Mars was conjunct the Lady Mars – Lilith – in Aries and the 2nd house/the $$$ sector. Of course she wanted money. Of course she identified with the Fox.
