Ezine for July 2, 2003
1. Katherine Hepburn
2. July speaking schedule
On June 29, we lost one of the most beloved ladies of the silver
screen. She came in with a Mars/Uranus conjunction and left us with
one, as well. Although Katherine Hepburn long gave her birth date as
November 8, 1907, that was in memory of her deceased brother and
probably to protect her privacy. She actually was born on May 12,
1907 at 5:47 PM in Hartford, CT. With Scorpio rising and the ruler,
Pluto, in the 8th house, she did project a very private, controlled
exterior. Her uncompromising independence is, of course, explained
by the Mars/Uranus conjunction in the third house, and since it is
in the business sign of Capricorn, she would have demonstrated
that independence most in her career.
Acting made sense as a career for her since Jupiter is conjoining
Neptune opposite the Mars/Uranus. Neptune opposite Mars particularly
indicates the ability to "be someone else." Her humor and
down-to-earth behavior is shown by Uranus opposite Jupiter, known
for punching holes in stuffed shirts, in fine aspect to Mercury,
angular in the seventh house.
She was born just after a new moon in Taurus, both lights in the
seventh. This is also an indication of impulsive independence. And
she died on the day of a new Moon, this one very near her Jupiter,
and since Jupiter was transiting her MC, it should have been a very
peaceful passing. Interestingly, the North Node was at 29 Taurus,
approaching her Sun, but also conjoining Spencer Tracy's Venus. I
imagine that was quite a reunion.
I'll be in Georgia giving a talk on Sunday afternoon, July 6th, at 2
pm in Canton at 1717 Fincher Rd. Contact phone is 770-479-6151. The
talk will be about the outer planets.
On July 9th, in the evening, I'll be giving the same talk at the
Planet Earth Bookstore in Ft. Myers, FL. The contact phone there is
