Biograph

Anne was born in the reign of her uncle Charles II, who had no legitimate children. Her father, James, was then the first in line to the throne, but because of his Roman Catholic ties, he was very unpopular with the House of Lords. Charles II recommended that Anne be raised as an Anglican to help James’s cause.

It did not help James for three years after he succeeded Charles, James was deposed in the “Glorious Revolution” of 1688 and his daughter Mary II and Dutch husband reigned. William and Mary had no children, so after Mary’s death in 1694, William continued as sole monarch until his death in 1702 at which point Anne became monarch.

We did not rectify this chart; Ms. Lois Rodden did.  Queen Anne is a Bundle even with the Modern Planets excepting for Pluto, blacked out on the chart here.  This temperament type is very insular and here, with everything in the Northern Hemisphere increases that predilection.   What’s rather interesting is looking at where her Neptune, that planet of dutiful obligation resides, at 18.47 Capricorn in the third house, but the same degree as Joan of Arc is said to have had her Saturn.

The Hyperion Symbol is “Small dogs chasing a squirrel” which is all about the gay abandon one pursues one’s interest.  That is later amplified by her Uranus at 16.35 Aquarius that is exactly the same degree as her descendant Queen Victoria’s Jupiter. Both Queens made a big splash promoting the  arts and crafts of their time; Anne in furniture and Victoria in textiles.

Her third house is also rather crowded, with her sister Mary, her Dutch cousins, Mary’s husband William, and large extended family.

he classic Queen Anne style.

The difficulties she had with her sister are shown by the elder being a stern taskmaster at Saturn 06.21 Capricorn but with its image of “Young girls by a lotus pond”  that there may have been some subtle rivalry going on as Mary was barren and worried about her successor.

Finally, her Pluto, not discovered for several centuries after her death & way out in the eighth house at 24.23 Gemini, tells us that she was quite aware of her image and legacy.  With the keyword from Sepharial of “friendship”  and opposite her dutiful Neptune in the third house, there is no doubt that the Queen invited and curried British craftsman’s favour in a celebration of interior decor and a major attack on the prevailing French provincial style of the time.

Her eye on the “future,”  Saturn in Capricorn, was a smart bet; she left no issue and was the end of the Stuart line after her comes in the Hanovers — but her furniture, elegant and timeless, lives on.
