Elizabeth was the only child of Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn. When Anne was unable to produce a male heir, the son Henry desperately needed, their marriage ended tragically as King Henry had his wife, the mother of Elizabeth executed on patently false charges of witchcraft, incest and adultery on 19 May 1536. Her daughter, Elizabeth, would eventually become England's greatest queen.
Elizabeth was less than three years of age when her mother was executed. With her South Node in Aquarius in the second house in Aquarius, you can see the ongoing lessons in self reliance via the sudden traumatic loss of her mother. The ruler Uranus is in Cancer and is conjunct Saturn as well as the North Node of Saturn in the 7th and they are making an inconjunct to this South Node. Pluto is also in Aquarius in the first house and opposes Saturn and the North Node of Saturn in Cancer in the 7th, Saturn rules her her Ascendant, the cusp of the house where her Pluto resides. Elizabeth’s Moon in Taurus is squared by Pluto and her Moon is also the ruler of Saturn and Uranus in Cancer, the ruler of her South Node and Pluto also reflects her ongoing need to establish self reliance. Pluto not only squares her Moon, but the Moon sesquisquares her Sun in Virgo in the 8th and square Jupiters in the 12th re-stating the early death of her mother who was falsely accused of 8th house wish craft and adultery. The Moon in Taurus in the 3rd also reflects her own mother’s nature as she was known to be the stubborn and somewhat volatile Ann Boleyn.
Even though Elizabeth was the 3rd stage Consensus which is reflected in her desire to follow her conscience in the religion that felt true for her, the Protestant faith, in spite of the consequences and the risks that would result, she was also very non conforming, courageous and rebellious seen with her Pluto in Aquarius in the 1st and South Node in Aquarius in the 2nd, traits universally admired then and now. Traits also that were feared and in some cases despised. She had plenty of enemies especially those indoctrinated in the Catholic Orthodox Church. There will always be more forward thinking, risk taking Souls in every stage of evolution in order to help propel the class and stage forward as Elizabeth is a perfect example of looking at Aquarian combined with Arian symbolism in a 3rd stage Consensus state.
Queen Mary, a devout Catholic and Elizabeth’s half sister, the Queen that preceded Elizabeth was determined to crush the Protestant faith in which Elizabeth had been educated, and she ordered that everyone attend Catholic Mass. Elizabeth had to outwardly conform but was later charged for being a part of a religious rebellion of Protestant against the Catholic church. The hiding her faith is seen with Venus in Libra in the 9th opposing Neptune in Pisces in the 2nd. Even though ‘she fervently protested her innocence' she was under house arrest for nearly a year.Transiting Pluto was three degrees of Pisces which was inconjunct her Venus in Libra, ruler of her Moon in Taurus. Elizabeth’s Venus opposed her Neptune in Pisces in the second, ruler on the 2nd cusp is Uranus which is in the 7th conjunct Saturn. Also her North Node of Uranus is conjunct her Mars in Gemini which is sequisquare her Pluto in Aquarius in the 1st house. The sister (sibling) creating trauma for her. This conflict of beliefs with the sister is seen with Elizabeth’s Moon in Taurus in the 3rd squaring Pluto in Aquarius, also the ruler of her Taurus Moon is Venus in Libra in the 9th, opposing Neptune in Pisces in the 2nd and Chiron in Aries in the 3rd house. Mary's attempts to have Elizabeth confess to treason for religious rebellion against the Catholic Church was staged in order to prevent Elizabeth from ever being Queen. Elizabeth said," I cannot sin against God and my honor by confessing what is false." Mars in Gemini in the 5th opposing Jupiter in Sagittarius in the 12th.
Elizabeth’s fight for her right to believe in was was true for her has been going on for ages and is seen with South Nodes of Mars and Venus in Libra balsalmic phase in her 9th and squaring Jupiter in Sagittarius in the 12th, also her natal Venus and Mercury in Libra in her ninth house of beliefs and faith, her South Node of Mercury in Libra is also conjunct her Venus in Libra, wanting fairness and equality for all, in particular as it relates to faith. She was also quoted saying that there is “One God” We all Believe in God, Catholics and Protestants alike. As her half sister Mary was dying which meant Elizabeth would become heir to the throne, Mary asked Elizabeth to promise her that she would preserve the Catholic faith and make it the faith practiced for all of England. “ Elizabeth replied.” When I am Queen, I will do what my conscience tells me is best.” Later she was quoted saying, “I will not punish my people for their beliefs, my constant endeavor is to earn their love.” North Node in Leo in the 8th house trine Jupiter in Sagittarius in the 12th house. Elizabeth was a true underdog having so much weighing against her from very early on with a clear difference in faith as the majority of England as well as being labeled illegitimate and a bastard child following the death of her mother. North Node in Leo in the 8th house and ruler Sun in Virgo in the 8th sesquisquare her Moon in Taurus yet with Jupiter in the 12th in Sagittarius trining her North Node she landed on her feet, some historians have called her lucky; she believed that God was protecting her, and she would find herself to be the Queen England needed.
Clearly she has had large leadership roles throughout history, Pluto in the 1st house, South Node of Pluto and Saturn conjunct in Capricorn in the first, also conjunct her Capricorn rising, a Scorpio Mid heaven, ruler Pluto in the first in Aquarius, ruler Uranus in Cancer in the 7th conjunct Saturn. Also the asteroid Amazone is conjunct Neptune in Pisces in the second and trines her Saturn and Uranus in Cancer in the 7th and sextiles her Pluto in the 1st. She was able to attract an effective council and a population of people to join her pursuits and she had a way of opening people’s rigid minds and consider what is best not just for themselves but for all the people of England as a whole. She has always 'inwardly' rebelled against consensus thinking and in government, Elizabeth was more moderate than her father and half-siblings had been. One of her mottoes was "video et taceo" "I see, and say nothing". She would far rather have kept the peace, as Venus, the ruler of her Moon in Taurus in the 3rd is in Libra as well as Mercury, ruler of her Sun is in Libra in the 9th house. However her Libran spirit in combination with her first house Pluto in Aquarius had her fighting for what she believed in tooth and nail never backing down and had always wanted what was fair and just.
She has been fighting the system and the ways of tradition and for her this goes way back in time seen with Mars and Venus conjunct in Libra in her 9th squaring Saturn and Uranus in Cancer in the 7th, ruler of her Pluto and her South Node. She herself has a high degree of unresolved trauma with a South Node in Aquarius and Pluto in Aquarius, being persecuted for her beliefs similar to times as seen in the times during the Inquisition when the Catholics reigned and killed countless Souls, all in the name of God as they waved their flag with the cross prominently placed. Her South Nodes of Mars and Venus are conjunct in Libra in the 9th and square Saturn, the ruler of her South Node of Pluto and Saturn as well as her ascendant, and Uranus, the ruler of her Pluto and South Node. She also has signatures for being be-headed just like her mother Ann Boelyn seen with Mars in Gemini in the 5th opposing Jupiter in Sagittarius in the 12th, but in her case for opposition in faith, religious practices. An example of devastating religious conflicts in history that may relate to Elizabeth’s past connects potentially to the Spanish Inquisition which took place in the time frame of 1478-1834, remembering Elizabeth was born in 1533, perhaps she reincarnated quickly following some unjust persecutions resulting in an early exit, the ruler of her South Node in Aquarius is Uranus in Cancer conjunct Saturn and is inconjunct her South Node as this region is reflected in the Cardinal Axis in her chart - Pluto in the 1st , South Node of Pluto and Saturn in Capricorn, Cap rising, South Nodes of Mars, Venus, and Mercury in Libra, Natal Mercury and Venus in Libra, Saturn and Uranus in Cancer. Also in the life as Elizabeth she feared a Spanish takeover as conflicts with Spain and Ireland were prevalent. It seemed perhaps there was some redemption with the defeat of the the Spanish Armada but for 15 years following until her death the battles with Spain and Ireland dragged on.
From the start of Elizabeth's reign, it was expected that she would marry as it was believed only in marriage would she find security and produce an heir. Various prospects were paraded in front of her from different countries in order to entice her into marriage. Venus is in Libra in the 9th house. Venus rules her Moon in Taurus in the 3rd which is the ruler of her Saturn, Uranus in the 7th in Cancer. Looking at the 7th house cusp you find Cancer, ruler Moon in Taurus in the 3rd, ruler Venus Libra in the 9th house, international suitors. She was said to have been in love with her childhood friend Explorer Lord Robert Dudley but he was already married and her conservative peers strongly discouraged this union even after his wife died, there were rumors of an up-rise if the marriage ever occurred. Dudley at some point married again and although Elizabeth chose not to marry him herself she was still extremely jealous and ‘Dudley remained at the ‘center of Elizabeth’s emotional life’. She held onto him until the end, and on her deathbed she was said to have whispered his name. In the movie Elizabeth Dudley was found to have betrayed her and it was in that scene where she said, “I have become a virgin.” North Node in Leo in the 8th., ruler Sun, in Virgo,virgin, in the 8th house. The title Virgin Queen, (not 'literally’ a virgin) came to be because she chose not to marry and as a result not did she produce an heir.
“Elizabeth enjoyed the company of men but patriarchal society was probably one of the driving reason's behind Elizabeth's decision not to marry. Since men commanded more authority and respect than women in England, Elizabeth would have become the Queen Consort had she married, essentially losing all of her power”. She wanted ultimate control in her relationships because of all that she felt stripped of in the past, especially by the male race and those that held positions of authority South Node in Aquarius, ruler Uranus conjunct Saturn in the 7th in Cancer. Also South Nodes of Mars and Venus balsalmic in Libra, making a t-square to her South Nodes of Pluto and Saturn in Capricorn/Cap ascendant and her natal Uranus, ruler her South Node and Pluto and Saturn in Cancer. She was tough as nails on the outside but soft as butter on the inside if anyone was fortunate to experience her vulnerability. The rulers of her South Node and Pluto in Aquarius are conjunct in Cancer. She took on the mantle of the Virgin Queen, declaring herself MARRIED TO ENGLAND, North Node in Leo in the 8th, ruler the Sun in Virgo also in the 8th and she was truly metamorphosized in that role. One of the line’s in the movie Elizabeth, the Golden Years, Elizabeth played by Cate Blanchet she said, “I gave England my life, must I also given them my Soul." North Node in Leo in the 8th house, ruler Sun in Virgo in the 8th, squaring Jupiter in the 12th house reflecting in total here the sacrifices she made
Elizabeth was clearly unique as well as ‘special’ for as a woman of the time she held an unusual amount of power, Pluto in the 1st in Aquarius, South Node in Aquarius, Ruler Uranus in Cancer new phase to Saturn in the 7th house. Also Mars in Gemini in the 5th trining Mercury in Libra in the 9th house as well as Jupiter in Sagittarius in the 12th trining her North Node in Leo in the 8th house. She had a way of also shocking and surprising people into new ways and new rules of her making, structures that supported all her people versus just one faith and doing what she could that was right for what was going on at the time. Her strong Libra signatures ie ruler of her South Node and Pluto, Ascendant being conjunct in her 7th house. Also her Venus and Mercury in Libra as well and her South Nodes of Mars and Venus in Libra , it is written that she sat on the fence was “cautious in foreign affairs moving between the major powers of France and Spain.
Elizabeth's foreign policy was largely defensive. South Node in the 2nd, ruler Uranus in Cancer in the 7th conjunct Saturn. Also her South Node of Pluto and Saturn are retrograde and conjunct not only eachother but also her ascendent. Only through the activities of her fleets did Elizabeth pursue an aggressive policy. This paid off in the war against Spain, 80% of which was fought at sea.” In the movie Elizabeth the Golden Years there is a scene that captures her spirit...she is there in front of her army on her horse as they witness the Spanish fleet approaching their shores, she is in full armor with her fair skin and long red wild hair blowing in the wind. The leader shouts, “Soon now we will meet them face to face. I am resolved in the act of battle to live or die amongst you all. When this day of battle is ended we meet again in heaven or on the field of victory.” She was an absolute vision of Pluto in the first house in Aquarius in this scene, ruler Uranus in Cancer conjunct Saturn and North Node of Neptune in the 7th. Also North Node of Leo in the 8th, ruler Sun in Virgo in the 8th house. Though Elizabeth followed a largely defensive foreign policy, her reign raised England's status abroad. "She is only a woman, only mistress of half an island,"
marveled Pope Sixtus V, "and yet she makes herself feared by Spain, by France, by the Empire, by all". Under Elizabeth, the nation gained a new self-confidence and sense of sovereignty, as Christendom fragmented. She certainly had something to prove and she proved herself well not only to herself but to the male dominated world. A quote in the movie Elizabeth when Dudley is trying to publicly win her affection and calling her “My Elizabeth,” she spins on her heels and says “I AM NO MAN’S ELIZABETH.” “I will have one mistress here and no master.” She herself was her master, she and God.
With a North Node in Leo in the 8th, it is essential in order to get her power back and establish her own place in the world again to not only protect her people but to establish rules that are fair for all..It was clearly a life for her not only to be Queen but to use her power to allow people to believe freely without repercussion, The themes of power continue with Pluto in the first, , North Node in the 8th in Leo and a Scorpio Mid Heaven, in spite of the fact she was an underdog because of her not confirming to the Catholic faith and being labeled an illegitimate or a bastard child. She has her own history of unresolved trauma and being force fed various religions and/or being caught going against governing religious ways and being burned for it. Her South Node of Uranus is in Sagittarius in the 11th house of trauma and is opposed by her natal Mars in Gemini. Her Mars in Gemini is making a sesquisquare to Pluto in the first in Aquarius, being burned for her beliefs. Elizabeth has Venus in Libra in the 9th opposing Neptune in Pisces and squaring her Cap ascendant. She also had Mercury in Libra in the 9th and it trines her Mars in Gemini in the 5th, a country with two faiths, free to worship as they wish, also her desire driven attempt to unite the will of the people and earn their love in the process, Mars in the 5th, ruler Mercury in Libra in the 9th. Also North Node in Leo in the 8th and this trines Jupiter in Sagittarius in the 12th house.
“I am called the Virgin Queen”“I am called the Virgin Queen”
“I have no master”
“I am childless”
“I am Mother to my people”.
“I am your queen”
“I am myself.”
- North Node in Leo in the 8th, ruler Sun in Virgo in the 8th.“I have no master”
- Pluto in the 1st house in Aquarius. North Node in Leo in the 8th.“I am childless”
-Pluto in the 1st in Aquarius square Moon in Taurus. Moon in Aquarius sesquisquare Sun in Virgo in the 8th, Mercury, ruler of her 5th house is square Saturn and Uranus in Cancer in the 7th. “I am Mother to my people”
- Mercury, ruler of her 5th house is in the 9th in Libra and trining Mars in Gemini in the 5th. Also Saturn and Uranus conjunct in Cancer in the 7th.
“I am your queen”
- North Node in Leo in the 8th, Mercury, ruler of the 5th is in Libra in the 9th trining Mars in Gemini in the 5th. “I am myself.”
- Pluto in the 1st in Aquarius, South Node in Aquarius in the 2nd, Taurus Moon.
There is quite a stellium of the North Node planets in her 7th house, re-stating her need to work to establish justice for her people and her role in making this happen in a far reaching, potentially regal or royal way seen with North Nodes of Neptune and Venus in Leo in the 7th, along with her North Node of Pluto, Jupiter and Saturn conjunct her natal Uranus and Saturn in Cancer in the 7th. It feels also however with this sort of signature that she may end up in a marriage or union next time around where she can have a partner of her choosing where her power would not have to be sacrificed in any way and together they would ideally reflect a powerful example of gender equality, her leading the way of course.
“After the short reigns of Elizabeth's brother and sister, her 44 years on the throne provided welcome stability for the kingdom and helped forge a sense of national identity.” Her unusually long reign is seen with the ruler of her South node and Pluto in Aquarius being Uranus in Cancer conjunct Saturn, the ruler of her Ascendant. Also her North Node of Saturn conjunct her natal Saturn and her North node of Jupiter conjuncts her Uranus, in the 7th. She had a way of surrounding herself with the right people. “She always worked with parliament and advisers she could trust would tell her the truth”, Jupiter in Sagittarius in the 12th house trines her North Node in Leo in the 8th house. “Right from the start, the shrewd Sir William Cecil served as Elizabeth's chief Secretary of State. In 1571, Elizabeth named him Lord Burleigh, moved him to the position of Lord Treasurer, and replaced him as Secretary of State with the more cutthroat but nevertheless loyal Francis Walsingham. The talents of Burleigh and Walsingham, and Elizabeth's ability to work productively with them, were perhaps the most crucial strengths of Elizabeth's rule. One of the great attributes of an Amazon leader his to surround herself with the right people, those she can fully trust. It is the power of delegation and knowing who to place where and in what role that . Elizabeth has Amazon in Pisces conjunct Neptune in the 2nd house and this trines her Saturn and North Node of Saturn in Cancer in the 7th house. Also Her Amazon sextiles Pluto in Aquarius in the 1st house. Saturn is delegation and with her Saturn conjunct Uranus, the ruler of her Pluto an South Node in Aquarius, this contributes to her ability to observe a whole group, Uranus/Aquarius, understanding the individual strengths within that group and being able to appropriately place them in a way that best supports her bottom line.
What I found to be most fascinating of all was that she not only came into power toward the end of the dark and difficult Kali Yuga (her life 1533-1603), the end of the 12,000 year cycle according to Sri Yukteswar was 1599, the Kali Yuga representing a descent into the darkest period of the cycle in history, she did so for 44 years. As the name suggests, Kali, going down into the underworld and then rising up above the ashes. The darkness on this planet during her reign was peaking and she lead England impressively out of the dark and into a relatively more objective light. South Nodes of Pluto and Saturn conjunct in Capricorn on her Ascendant, ruler natal Saturn conjunct Uranus in Cancer in the 7th, Uranus the ruler of her natal Pluto and South Node in Aquarius. Although the female race continues to fight to find their equal place in the world now over 400 years later, as we are still making our way ‘out of the dark’ Elizabeth was a symbolic seed for woman to take back what was exclusively theirs once more. Elizabeth’s Original Lilith is conjunct her 12th house Jupiter in Sagittarius and this trines her Resolution Lilith in Aries in the 3rd house. which I feel was the driving impulse in her to do what ‘her conscience told her to do was right.” She embodied a woman taking back her God given right to be who she is, naturally so, although Elizabeth was still conditioned by culture largely at that time, she also represented a woman who would not submit to a man, her God, her truth and her power were far too sacred. She also moved with the attitude, of “this is who I am, take it or leave it”, also knowing full well how to take care of herself and be a group of one if necessary, Pluto in the 1st in Aquarius, South Node in Aquarius in the 2nd, ruler Uranus in Cancer new phase to Saturn in the 7th house.
“Elizabeth's reign, known as the Elizabethan era became idealized as a time when crown, church and parliament had worked in constitutional balance." Pluto Polarity Point in Leo in her 7th house conjunct her Saturn in Cancer, North Node of Saturn which is also conjunct her Uranus, ruler of her South Node and Pluto. Also North Node in Leo in the 8th trining Jupiter in Sagittarius. The time of Elizabeth’s reign was known as the GOLDEN AGE North Node in Leo in the 8th house.
By the time of her death, England was the richest and most powerful country in Europe!!!
(incredible, and she was ‘only a woman’)
