Regulus In Virgo And The Age Of Queens

Abstract Tarot card style art of African Queen holding cup and snake

Uranus in Taurus and Regulus in Virgo could usher in the Age of Queens.  Leaving aside the impact and influence of Uranus in your own personal astral energies, the broad swathe of Uranus in Aries since 2010/2011 has coincided with a swaggering new Age of Kings; the tech titans, rocket ship blasting inventor-billionaires, digital pioneers, Brotopia, a growing array of masculinist advocates online and of course, President Caligula.

The Fixed Star Regulus has been in Leo, always. Now, it’s clocked over into Virgo, at the same time Uranus moves into Taurus.

Some of these kingly manifestations are absolutely 1000 times better than the others and who doesn’t love innovation. But if it is the Age of Queens, what would that look like? Ecological rebalancing? The ratification of the anti-abuse & objectification feminist rage now occurring? Stronger societal support for mothers, animals, earth, social equity?

Broader standards of beauty or a return to a more natural aesthetic sans fillers, freezer-venom, imported hair from hard-up woman woven into ours and the whole Beauty Myth cosmetic surgery trip Naomi Wolf presciently banged on about in the 90s? What do we want and how can we learn to speak the language of Queens? In terms of Fixed Stars, Regulus in Virgo is the most significant shift in hundreds of years.

There is a language that is unspoken and it’s the voice from those that seek their prayers, wishes or dying breath to be heard. I’ve had this since I was a little girl. It has been difficult for me to understand. My first memory of this skill was polishing spoons, knives and forks for my mother’s friend Aunty Polly. I would have been 10 years old or younger and there I was in another time and place, grieving the loss of my beloved. I took my life in the water. It was very cold and looked Victorian era, lush green… Read more »


Yea Operah 2020! It seems so fitting. Just like Trump felt like it had to happen to break old patterns or something.( so fitting for Uranus in Aries) And she is Uranus in taurus in so many ways, just look up her astro. 2H Aqua sun conjunct Venus, part of a gran air Trine with Jupiter, neptune and Mercur all in earth houses!


Saggitarius rising, Jupiter in 6h. 10h Saturn in tight square to sun


Sometimes when I’m watching Game of Thrones I think a lot about this. I love watching the strength of all the female characters grow throughout each season, even the evil ones! Bring on the Age of Queens on our screens, and in real life! Oh, I’d love to have a beer with GRRM and ask him about his thoughts on astrology

Rise of the Sacred Feminine. The Anthroposophists are talking about this as coming into NOW.


I love this


I really thought Natalie Portman’s speech at the women’s march the other day said it all.

It’s a bit out there, but, has anyone read ‘Beyond the human condition’ by Jeremy Griffiths? He’s a biologist from NSW.


Not yet but it looks interesting


Broader standards of beauty would be amazing to behold. Not the factory farmed version we have that is generally and widely accepted and generally encourages women to alter themselves to look something other than the bodies and faces they chose to inhabit in this lifetime. I don’t rule out choice or the notion of evolution or trying something new. No, it’s not that. It’s when women secretly feel they have to as if what they have is not enough or will not be received. That’s dysfunctional and ironically has become a new norm. The other plus is perhaps we can… Read more »

My mother didn’t wear much makeup and my dad liked it that way. I used to want to wear makeup and the heels but I stopped wearing makeup decades ago. I have never bought stilettos or those pointy shoes that scrunch the toes. No thanks. I had a friend in high school that wore a ton of makeup… she had to in order to cover her acne. I didn’t have acne and I quickly realized that makeup gets all over clothes, sheets, etc. I was at a party last Friday. I had no energy to socialize so I was kind… Read more »

PS I also don’t dye my hair, I keep it short for my own comfort and ease and don’t give one ounce of concern if a boy/man doesn’t like it. I have found my identity and what I care about. I know what is real for me. I have no problem with what others want to do, be or wear. I appreciate all unique individuals who know themselves and are themselves. That’s what is attractive to me.


This is timely, and so necessary. I love that this post appears on my birthday. I think the Age of Queens is basically women reclaiming their thrones, and being treated accordingly. No longer waiting for the so-called Kings to show up to fix things. We know nothing gets done with them.


Yes please!


All sounds great to me! It’s about time! We need this and it’s really already happening. Very exciting!
I want to be a Queen too! 🙂


About time.


Our 37 yo unmarried, soon to be mother, prime minister is being joyfully embraced by the whole country. Zeitgeist!


I’m not persuaded that Queen/female rule would be any better than King/ male rule. While it sounds ultra traditional, women are no less guilty of the 7 deadly sins than are men. And worse, they hold onto grudges far longer than men. What the world needs is a more balanced power sharing and an honest recognition by both genders of the strengths of each and making room for those strengths to be expressed. King/male rule is reluctant to share power. Are women who rise to the top any more willing to do so? I’m not so sure.


I make a distinction between women ruling from their masculine (female queen) and rulers of either sex coming from a balanced or more feminine style.

Totally agree women can be just as bad as men – we all need to do some healing.


Meant to write female *king*


same. I don’t feel that there wouldn’t be a darkside with Age of Queens. The answer to patriarchy is not matriarchy but fraternity. I forgot who said that, but i think it’s still true.


The answer to over-steering to the left is not over-steering to the right. It is the judicious use of power to effect the shortest time thru the corner.


Well, “fraternity” is still gendered masculine, so we need another word. Not sorority either, obvs.

We need some new words, period–as the rise of the trans and all the letters of the alphabet they keep adding (a friend just came out to me as “Ace.” Awesome!) are telling us. That is also very Uranus in Taurus, I think. Sorry, random tangential thought typing.


I’d better get back to work.
Again don’t want to go into detail until I have completed my mission but fuckyeah to the new direction my life is taking. It’s hard work but it’s so totally worth it.
Now if only I could factor in some me time….
Soon enough.
Work work work work work (on repeat still)


Hell yeah to all this. Almost finished moving into new place Have ahem boyfriend type thing emerging which I’m keeping shtum about because I’m honouring the magic of it, our mutual intention to treat each other with love, care, trust and respect. Add to that the fact that nothing physically has happened yet although the chemistry is so charged. He’s basically a reflection of my own spiritual and emotional growth and happens to be insanely hot, funny, clever AF, massively into meditation, yoga, etc and whether it becomes something or not, the fact of our meeting continues to inspire us… Read more »

Jealous of ahem boyfriend chemistry. Good on you!


Well, let’s not count our chickens just yet because as fabulous as he is, what do the French say? “All beginnings are lovely.” And although we’re very excited about each other and no question about the relationship being a very beautiful and positive, powerful experience for the both of us it has not as yet been consummated. We’re definitely out of the friend zone- a cyber orbit we’ve been doing and enjoyed for two years now – it could still turn out the be …. well who knows but yes just having the chemistry is lovely so thanks. Odd reactions… Read more »


There’s women!


Loved reading this. SO glad things are on the up for you. xxx


Thanks Chrysalis:-) I’m just enjoying the new episode or chapter of my life and trying to keep it real and in the moment. As in seeing it for what it is rather than projecting too much future type fantasy about what it could be. Although the temptation to do so is strong. We’re very different people in some important ways and I like that. He’s very structured has his daily routines and calls himself a “stick in the mud” whereas I’m more into going with the flow. He’s into Thelonius Monk, I dig on Rihanna. Although secretly I adore the… Read more »


Also I just saw a thing

Ni santas.
Ni putas.
Sòlo Mujeres.

(Not saints. Not whores. Just women.)
From I think @BrownMujeresMedia


Love this.


Whoop whoop whoop.
But my own personal reads
Not saint not whore, Just goddess !


Wholesale abandonment of the entire cosmetics industry would be a fine start imho, because it would mean women are comprehending that we look fine without plastering numerous varieties of expensive paint onto our lovely faces, and it would also shift the idea of personal value onto other elements of existence.


I’m ok with keeping cosmetics if they become more animal friendly, woman friendy, earth friendly products with reasonable price points and a social conscience. It is happening, but I think smaller online companies will have the advantage.

Virgo Ellie

Yay, it’s interesting, I haven’t been wearing a lot of makeup lately. I am okay with it. I am an actress so I have trouble painting my face to fit in. I would say I am at level 1 in the Entertainment world. Behind the scenes kinda of actress. If they need someone I will step in but I will mostly help out.

Your post resonates with me.


I was reading something interesting about theatre and make-up. Wish I remembered where Like cinema and related things, it seems right to keep the artifice in place..


I try very hard to make room in my philosophy for the existence of makeup. That it could be (and for some people probably is) about joy, celebration, costuming in the best sense. But barring job interviews and weddings, for which I will put on mascara and a little foundation, I don’t wear any (I’ve never wanted to feel like my own face wasn’t enough, or like I had to hide it under something before going out). And I deeply wish everyone else would stop. Maybe just my own pain, but I wish being a woman wasn’t equated with painting… Read more »


So yeah, really it is just my pain. Because I actually really enjoy the love and joy other people bring to more conventional (or unconventional but not naturalistic) beauty. I just don’t want to have to participate myself. And I don’t have to, so it’s okay.


In case it helps I was a 5 year scorpio that would say things like ‘can’t wait to wear a mini skirt lipstick thong (!)’ and now I’m a 34 old scorpio that is super natural and casual. I do like my mascara but I will also rock a moustache à lá Frida Khalo if I wish! The right to look natural is very dear to me! All this to say that she may grow into a different approach..I did! And yes my father and TV were one of the influences as a child :/

I love that you are holding space for your daughters authentic expression of self


Thank you for sharing this. You unfolded it all very gently. xx


Sorry, Pi. Should have just put this under its own thread. I thought I was just writing to say “I agree.” Turned into a bit more than that. 🙂


🙂 loved what you wrote, except for the bit about the crappy ex who habitually belittled your you-ness *cold, stony stare at crappy ex*

Saggi Crab

I’m so sorry you had to experience that type of treatment from your ex – that sounds very demeaning and wounding. I can relate to it with my own experience in a relationship with a man who avoided intimacy – I’ve found it very hard to move past because it really cuts in a deep, vulnerable place. I just wanted to say ‘hear hear’ to your final paragraph though – you *are* enough, as you are. You are feminine enough as you are, you are desirable enough as you are. I write this for myself, really, not to patronise you,… Read more »


As an experiment and because I actually considered being an American Sikh back in 2014-15 I actually used no cosmetics besides the absolutely necessary which was limited to sunscreen, lip balm, and some deodorant made with essential oils. No shaving anything. No plucking sugaring, lasering, or bleaching or coloring hair. I wanted to see if I could live the lifestyle you know? I am glad I did it. It was easier than I thought but at the same time, it felt oppressive as someone who is also an artist. I realized I expressed myself through clothing and makeup and hair… Read more »

I don’t wear makeup daily, but I love it! For me, makeup can be a channeler of power and fun and art (and #scorprising eyeliner). Some of my painful childhood memories have to do with judgment of being feminine / wearing dresses and having to wear a uniform. So I am reclaiming what makes me feel good. However I feel there is this weird mind fuqing qi that goes on re media and ads of the Botox world. A director/actress made a great point in this podcast I listened to about how real noses and wrinkles are beautiful- looking up… Read more »


I mostly use petro-chemicals on my cars n bikes.
Why ppl put it on their face beats me.

Make-up is a vicious trap. The more you use the more you’ve gotta use it. My Venus in 2H Virgo is scared by the use of it.


oh ok so my thing was not to moralise or whatever. It’s the compulsory gendery-ness of makeup that gets my argument genes going. I think this guy sums up my views – he is fabulously awkward, stick with him, the makeup bit starts at about 2:50 😀 I calculated the price per kilo of a supermarket brand of mascara once. It was about $22,000 AUD. In USD and imperial measurements, say about $15,000 for a pound. That’s pigment, a solvent, some kind of glue, and fragrance. Gold is about $50,000 a kilo. cocaine $10,000 unless you’re in colombia or… Read more »

this age of queens to me means a more fluid, natural authentic sense of power of the individual away from paradigms and structures. Also I’ve noticed the the Kings mentioned all have a bunch of feminine shadow sides that need integration- speaking to a need in society as a whole (I.e. Neil Strauss Elon musk piece, Tim ferriss recent talk about being nicer to himself, pres neros rampant attention starved inner child.


Amazing observation re: the kings. The world needs healthy feminine energy so badly.


I coincidentally met one of my birthday twinies yesterday and she is so inspiring and ambitious. She (realestate and business) and two of her friends ($ and tech) have started up a website for local tourism cutting out the middle MAN and all night I thought this will go global, franchises, the whole thing run with the big picture for local small businesses in mind. She asked me to visit her for some brochures and said I moved around the corner.Wow! ..she designed and built with her husband an eco friendly palace. The furniture, the charcoal walls framing huge windows… Read more »


Ps both Taurus 🙂




An Age of Queens is long, long overdue. Bring on the re-balancing. Thank Goddess.
