Vintage Astrology: Carol The Crab

Filed in Cancer/Kataka

Born in 1945 in Minneapolis just nine days after a total Solar Eclipse in the sign of the Crab, Carol Andrews also had Moon in Leo. Note the perfectly coiffed hair already.

Nearly 22 years later, with damned Mercury Retrograde conjunct the Sun at the degree of that Eclipse, Carol L Andrews was arrested for being “part of a dexedrine smuggling gang of secretaries.”

Her eyes are classic Cancerian – heavy lidded, with the under whites showing – and that gaze transmits a certain contempt for the process of being mug-shotted. These days dexedrine is used as medication for attention deficit disorder and secretaries are being replaced by machines.

But her vibe seems also quietly triumphant. Amphetamine? Her height to weight ratio? Having escaped the typing pool?

Thoughts?

As a fellow crab, I’d for sure be mean mugging in my mug shot, regardless of guilt or innocence.

This is too good. I nominate Carol as the next Coen Brothers heroine.
I also have been a Minneapolis girl secretary, strange. Managed to bypass addy smuggling rings and mug shots though lol

As a secretary from Minneapolis, currently living here, whose mother also was also a badass secretary in Minneapolis…coincidence???? No. Apparently this gang goes waay back. I hear its still being run out of a little room in a basement of a Lutheran church. Seriously. My 92 year old mom ain’t saying anything but her 94 year old pal definitely knows where all the skeletons are. Initiates are put through intense typing speed contests and drunken boat parties before being allowed in. My mom lived at a girl’s club (residence) during school for business in the 1940s and she worked for… Read more »

Oh my god, this would make the most amazing film, but it has to be non Hollywood so as to bypass the macho bullshit. Kristen Stewart should be involved?… Maybe also Geena Davis, Susan Sarandon? (Typecasting soz) as the ‘present day’ OG’s recounting the story

Not sure. She looks to me either off chops or downright filthy that she had to go through the arrest process. But it was amazing what a good set at the hairdressers could do for a mug shot. Mug shots are forever, after all…

Lol! Yep. Definitely amphetamine powered contempt there. And omg when are we going to go back to the hairdresser for the semi-perma-set.. ok hopefully never but her do takes me back to my great aunt and granny who went to the hairdresser once a week for their quoff to be reset and voila.. never a hair outta place.

Sorry to nitpick (progressed moon in virgo at the moment), but how can her moon be in leo if she was born 9 days after a cancer solar eclipse, wouldn’t the moon be in leo one to two days later? Her moon is either late virgo or early libra. The moon was in leo the day of her arrest!

She looks contemptuous but I can see addict there as well. It’s a two-way street I guess.

I read this, “part of a dexedrine smuggling gang of secretaries” as ‘part of a dexedrine smuggling gang of secret aries’.

Bit off topic, but I kinda miss Cancer not being called Kataka in the scopes anymore…

Crabby Carol certainly looks like she knew her way around. I can see her taking over the laundry and dolling out a bit of justice. No one would dare mess with hair like that! http://i63.tinypic.com/2q1s9eb.jpg
