Wallis Simpson was a multiple conjunct Gemini. She has absolutely none of the Earth element in her natal birth chart whatsoever.
“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, but she was also 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 the first marriage to a brutal alcoholic. If she wanted riches and to be doted upon, who could blame her?
Many loathed her compulsive dieting and money obsession
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.
Her Venus Was Conjunct The Fixed Star Bellatrix – the female warrior
Add her Libra Moon into this and you see that her Astral Signature was Air. She had NO EARTH. Nor did she give a flying fuq about the protocol and tradition of the royal family. Time magazine named her “Woman of the Year” 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?
She had Mars 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.
