“Everyone has Oceans to Fly as Long as You have the HEART to do it”
Stage of Evolution - 3rd Stage Individuated
Amelia was centered in her individuality and outwardly demanded equality, championing other women to do the same. She advocated Independence , Self Reliance and Equal Rights (Pluto in the 2nd conjunct North node of Mars in the 2ndMars/Jupiter conjunction, Jupiter ruling her Amazon in the 8th, Pluto in Gemini in the 2nd balsamic conjunction to the Moon). As she grew up she kept a scrapbook of newspaper clippings about successful women in predominantly male dominated fields. Pluto/Moon balsalmic in Gemini documenting powerful self reliant and successful women, ruler Mercury in Leo conjunct the South Node and Sun in Leo. She is classically non conforming and would go to great lengths to maintain her freedom and to be allowed to express her individuality, her sense of natural equality and her heart’s desires.
Her 3rd stage individuality is further expressed in her prenup to husband George Putnam
"I want you to understand I shall not hold you to any midaevil code of faithfulness to me nor shall I consider myself bound to you similarly." Also documented saying -“We are equal in this marriage but I am calling the shots.” North Node in Aquarius, ruler Uranus rx in Scorpio in the 7th balsalmic to Saturn rx, the woman ‘wearing the pants’. In the movie Amelia, George Putnam, her husband said, “If you choose to fly, you will be the star and I will be a small particle of dust in your constellation.” This is just the way she liked it and just the way she needed it to be. It was a natural role for her to be in charge, Saturn in Scorpio in the 7th ruler Pluto conjunct the Moon. Putnams’ Sun in Virgo is conjuncts her Jupiter and Mars in her 5th house. Her Sun, South Node and Mercury in Leo are conjunct his Saturn and Mars.
Survival has been a theme for a long time with Pluto being in the 2nd especially that is is balsamic to the Moon. Strong themes in this chart for self reliance on all fronts, emotional and physical as she has been working to weave her desires into the realities of what is possible in any given life. Because of her high risk nature and the need to live on the edge, this inevitably put her more directly in touch with the need to depend on herself in every way. The high risk and need to live on the edge is her Pluto/Moon balsalmic square her Mars/Jupiter in Virgo. With her South node in Leo, her dreams and aspirations are larger than life and she progressively raises the bar on her goals as she feels the high of reaching whatever benchmark she has set for herself. For Amelai, she is not living unless she is pushing the proverbial limit. You can see this in her Pluto/Moon conjunction, Uranus, ruler of her North Node balsalmic to Saturn in Scorpio as well as her Amazon in Sag in the 8th house. With South Node of Mars in the 6th as well as Mars in Virgo, she is most competitive with herself, and always in working in the spirit of perfecting. She was very fixed and somewhat stubborn in nature especially when it came to her dreams and all that she put on the line to make them happen. No one would get in her way if she had anything to do with it. Pluto/Moon balsalmic in the 2nd squaring Mars/Jupiter in Virgo in the 5th. She had a strength and a perseverance that carried her through whatever she came up against in her life until she interfaced with her own limitations as came face to face with her Pluto Polarity, ultimate death.
Amelia is a naturally androgynous Soul, Original Lilith in Libra in the 6th conjunct South Node of Mars, ruler Venus in Gemini conjunct Pluto and the Moon, who I believe had many lifetimes as a powerful woman, a woman with natural power in more matriarchal settings seen with her South Node, Sun and Mercury all conjunct in Leo. I can see her being sort of a spokesperson for the tribe, someone who was always forward thinking perhaps to a fault as it appears there were plenty of times where she got way ahead of herself, her excitement exceeding safety at times, going too far too fast. Jupiter Mars balsalmic in Virgo in the 5th, plenty of time people thought her ideas were too risky or crazy but more often than not she proved them wrong. Her Amazon in the 8th in Scorpio feeds off of the intensity and extreme situations, including danger where life was on the line, in most cases hers and one other, seen with the stellium of Gemini planets in the second but also an entire tribe or group of people where her mistakes, slip ups, may have caused a collective catastrophe. This may be seen in her oversight or poor planning where she got ahead of herself which is exactly what happened in this life, Saturn sesquisquare Neptune. Perhaps too this is why she preferred to fly solo so the only one she was truly accountable for was herself, Pluto in the 2nd conjunct Moon in Gemini. You can see the unresolved trauma and guilt connected to her responsibilities within the tribe or the group as Uranus, ruler of her North Node is retrograde and balsalmic to Saturn retrograde. Chiron in Scorpio in the 7th squares the Nodes and opposes South Node of Chiron. Her South Node of Saturn in Cap on her MC inconjuncts Neptune in Gemini, reflecting the ocean of guilt carried forward guilt for saying something without thinking or for not saying something when she needed to and for not checking something twice.
She has always been an inspiration to others and an incredible motivator with her Leo South Node, Sun and Mercury, also Jupiter, Mars balsamic in Virgo in the 5th. She was able to shine the light on others and to light the way for those who followed in her footsteps or on the heels of her heroic attempts. Her Amazon in Sagittarius in the 8th house, the ruler being Jupiter conjunct Mars in Virgo. Her role in more natural times may have been as a Scout or to travel ahead into other lands to learn more about other tribes, perhaps secretly..These Amazons were called runners. Perhaps too in times beyond traveling by foot she may have traveled by horse, her strength was always in going the distance, the extra mile so to speak, Jupiter/Mars balsalmic in Virgo and working tirelessly into the night if necessary. Her South Node of Pluto and Saturn are in Cap on the MC and the ruler of her South Node in Capricorn being Saturn in Scorpio in the 7th conjunct Uranus (tribe). She always has had the desire and the need to roam and to be alone Pluto in the 2nd balsalmic to the Moon, also Amazon in Sagittarius tule Jupiter balsalmic to Mars but she also loved returning home to her people, South node in Leo conjunct Sun and Mercury. It reminded me a bit of the movie Out of Africa where Robert Redford always got in his plane to fly away..his partner knowing he would always come back, but one day he never returned because of his plane going down. This feels very much like her story, her inherent gypsy spirt,the wanderlust that consumed her Soul and the pure desire for freedom and to explore far reaching lands, South Node in Leo, ruler Sun, also Jupiter/Mars balsamic in Virgo in the 5th. This appears to be a an ongoing theme..pushing the limits and extending beyond perhaps the realistic reach. I can see even being captured by tribes in early times as her South Node of Uranus is conjunct her Amazon in the 8th and is squaring Mars and Jupiter squaring Neptune, Venus, Pluto and Moon in Gemini in the 2nd. Perhaps even then she disappeared, never to return home. I can see her also as a interpreter (Amazon in Sag, ruler Jupiter conjunct Mars) and a cross communicator between peoples, tribes and cultures serving as sort of a bridge between peoples. Uranus balsamic to Saturn in the 7th. Her shy unassuming way and her ease of entry had people eating right out of her hand, South Node in Leo in the 4th conjunct Sun and Mercury.Gender Flip Flopping and Hiding
I can see her flip flopping throughout patriarchal times in order to learn how to operate like a man or to be successful as a woman in a man’s world as the influence of the patriarchy pressed harder on the lives of women. It feels there were some prominent lives such as the life as Amelia that she knew she could be more influential to help re-establish gender balance by being a woman making a difference and setting new trends in a man’s world. Teaching by example - Jupiter Mars balsamic in the 5th in Virgo, no matter what the price. No matter if she had to put her life on the line for it, die for it, ultimately she did die for what she believed in. How many can say that? I feel too she also put her life on the line for women, that it wasn’t just for her but for the female race, Pluto/Moon balsalmic in Gemini in the 2nd.
It feels like a recent flip flop of gender as well, perhaps her last life as male with that strong tomboy influence as her South Node of Mars is in Libra, ruler Venus in Gemini conjunct Pluto and the Moon, North Node in Aquarius in the 10th, ruler Uranus balsalmic to Saturn in Scorpio in the 7th. Also the South Node of Saturn and Pluto in Cap on the MC, her North Node of Saturn and Pluto in Cancer in her 4th. If not a male I see her once again being a woman who raises the bar on what men or society thought was possible. I feel it was one of her missions not only to answer the call of her desires for pushing the limits and adventure, Mars/Jupiter in the 5th trine her ascendant but to be a role model for all woman to let nothing stop them, to remind them of their fire and their power.
One past life theme stands out in her chart and it is linked with a life in France when all the talented female artists were dressing like men in order to be able to express their art, they even formed a club to try and band together to protect themselves, artists in hiding, incognito and hiding behind their gender in order to be recognized for their talents and in order to simply do what they feel they were creatively born to do, to let nothing and no one stop them. They were also at some point discovered and persecuted harshly. I am sure this theme played out in various countries at various times in various ways. You can see this hiding behind her gender theme, a woman in disguise with her South Node in Leo in the 4th, conjunct ruler Sun in Leo and Mercury in Leo. Mercury, the ruler of her Pluto and Moon balsamic conjunction in the 2nd as well as her Neptune Venus balsalmic phase. In general she would go to whatever means possible to protect the right of a woman to express herself even if she has to become a man to do it, South node of Pluto and Saturn in Capricorn in her 10th She was known in the life as Amelia to design her own clothing line, somewhat tailored and very practical which could be a spillover from one of these lives. She has historically trend setting tendencies reflecting timeless taste, in this life’s case the androgynous clothing, and her leather jacket is still in style after all this time.
In terms of her sexual nature,Amelia has signatures for bi-sexuality, although there is no documented evidence that expressed desires for women in the life as Amelia. The bi-sexuality is seen with her Pluto and Moon balsalmic in Gemini in the 2nd. Also South Node of Mars in Libra, trining Moon and Pluto, ruler of her 7th house, in Gemini. Venus, the ruler of her South Node of Mars is also in Gemini. With Mars in Virgo squaring her Venus in Gemini she very well may not have lived out that desire, possibly repressed it due to the times she was living in and for fear of what kind of consequences this would create. In the life of Amelia, if it got in the way of her hearts primary passion, to fly and be free, it would not be worth the cost. She at bare minimum had a need for diversity which was why she put this in writing in her pre-nup. She was known to have had a least one lover. You can see there is a wound coming into this life regarding her sexuality and her bisexual nature with Chiron in Scorpio in the 7th, sesquisquare her ruler Pluto balsamic conjunction to the Moon in the second in Gemini. Perhaps she even lost her life for her sexual choices or was ridiculed and cast out. Pluto Moon balsamic in Gemini sesquisquare chiron in Scorpio which squares the nodes. I think there is a great deal the world does not know about Amelia as it relates to her sexual nature, much of it seemed to be repressed as in not acted upon and private, for her thoughts and eyes only. Pluto/Moon balsamic in Gemini in the 2nd. She has a natural intensity that I feel has been held back and protected because of the past trauma in people not being able to reach her or see her for who she is, which is symbolized with Uranus balsalmic to Saturn in Scorpio in the 7th, also her Amazon in Sagittarius in a Scorpio house. There seems to also have been lives where she never really grew up emotional, like a little girl (or boy) stuck at a certain age because of not being able to naturally move into her desires. This is reflected in the South Node, Sun and Mercury in Leo in the 4th, also Jupiter and Mars basalmic in Virgo in the 5th conjunct North Node of Venus,. She would have been very playful and free spirited in those intimate spaces but not able to go into deeper emotioanl sexual territory, Beyond attracting a sort of paternal partner, for her it would have been safe to also be with someone she considered a Friend that she could trust like a best friend or a father, North Node in Aquarius, Uranus ruler conjunct, Saturn balsalmic in the 7th. I also feel inn order to secure her position in the partnership she would have attracted others who loved her more than she loved them to give he a greater sense of control.
Also Uranus and Saturn balsamic in Scorpio in he 7th. Jupiter and Mars balsamic in Virgo squaring her Venus, Ceres, Pluto and Moon. She appears somewhat asexual too in the footage I viewed..or sexually frozen on some level due to the trauma..I feel she chose Putnam in a way because he was SAFE almost like a paternal partner with her Sun in Leo conjunct his Saturn and Mars in her 4th, who gave her the freedom to be who she was. She also appeared emotionally youthful, like a little girl, South Node in Leo in the 4th, conjunct the Sun in Leo and Mercury in Leo. With those symbols and a father she adored who was ultimately emotionally unavailable, it is no surprise she attracted Putnam. There is an over trusting naivete in Earhart that has gotten her into trouble and into pain in the past - South Node of Mars in Libra in the 6th ruler Venus balsmalmic conjunction to Neptune. South Node of Chiron is also in the 12th opposing Chiron in the 7th and squaring the Nodes.
Where she is headed i the future will be the necessary leap into those deep vulnerable waters with a partner that can meet and match her Scorpio intensity - Pluto Polarity in the 8th house, to leave the safety of feet on the land, Pluto in the 2nd, and dive into the depths of greater unrestrained intimacy. Freedom, which she demanded, is one thing. But letting go and becoming totally vulnerable in the arms of another is a totally different animal. In the future as in future lives, the partner will need to be another like minded Soul, possibly someone as in someone who comes through the side or back door, surprising her with their approach, someone again who show up first as a Friend, someone she can warm up to and develop a trust before absolute merging takes place. It would be essential that they also haev a Scorpio essence in order to help match her own private need for the same depth. You can see this again with the South Node of Uranus being in the 8th, Uranus being the ruler of her North Node, her natal Uranus in Scorpio conjunct Saturn. Also he Pluto Moon balsamic, reflecting to true depth of her intensity. Her North Nodes of Venus and Jupiter, which rule her Amazon and her Pluto Polarity Point in the 8th, are conjunct her Neptune and natal Venus in Gemini, also conjunct the North node of Mercury. She will need to freely and safely again express both sides of her nature, either attracting a partner who has integrated both sides himself or also having a female partner she can heal this broken road with. Most likely being at this stage of evolution she will need to engage and express her bisexual desires in a healthy and safe way before moving forward. Her intimate charge comes from talking or reading loving letters as language and voice soften her edges and allows her to further travel more deeply into her heart and Soul. It is as if the words have wings lifting her up and out of her resistance and into open territory. You can see this too with her Pluto Moon balsamic in Gemini in the 2nd house and the stellium that follows. I know in the life of Amelia she loved to write poetry....
Amelia fortunately chose and was allowed a mother to support her rough and tumble boyish tendencies allowing more of her true nature to heal and be expressed, Pluto Moon balsalmic in Gemini. Her mother was also a big part in helping her purchase the plane and supporting her training using the inheritance from the grandmother and also the support of her sister. You can see the strong female family backing with the South Node in Leo, conjunct the Sun and Mercury and Vesta. At one point in the movie Amelia she made a comment of being ‘done with that’..done with the tomboy stuff, this may have been her way of culminating the theme of hiding or thinking she need to look or act like a man to be taken seriously. Uranus, ruler of her North node in Aquarius is balsamic to Saturn in Scorpio. Both are retrograde. This life in her fame and in the lime light, being allowed to fly and design clothing for women that fit them right and hi lighted their femininity, also allowed Amelia to integrate more of the male and female within her to help her own inner gender balancing.Fame and her Female Following!
Amelia Earhart is the most famous missing person of all time, South Node in Leo, ruler Sun in Leo conjunct the South Node and Mercury. Pluto 2nd in Gemini balsalmic to the Moon in Gemini in the 2nd conjunct Venus and Neptune. Earhart was instantly famous because of the danger of her expeditions which can be seen first with the South Node in Leo conjunct the Sun and Mercury reflecting the instant fame but the danger with Mars conjunct Jupiter squaring Pluto, Moon, Venus. These symbols also reflecting enormous courage and work ethic, Jupiter Mars balsamic conjunction in Virgo in the 5th. Pluto in the 2nd conjunct her North Node of Mars, ruler Mercury conjunct her South Node and Sun in Leo. Needless to say there were not many women exhibiting this type of drive and ambition to constantly extend their reach and raise the bar on their life experience challenging men at every turn. The Jupiter Mars balsamic conjunction in Virgo in the 5th also reflected her instinct and drive to discover and travel far away lands..She was a leader and an international role model for women, starting the ninety nine club, a club for female aviators..and her desire to make all things equal for women, South Node in the 4th in Leo conjunct Mercury and the Sun, to communicate verbally, in writing and expressing herself simply living by example, that nothing need get in the way of what your heart desires, female or not. She demanded to have the adventures men were having and wanted to do what no man has ever done before, North Node in Aquarius, ruler Uranus, balsamic to Saturn in the 7th. To her, to be able to freely challenge the male race, the Lindberg’s of our time, and this spirited determination and drive created a sense of absolute liberation, North Node in Aquarius and Soul Empowerment, Pluto Polarity in the 8th and an opportunity for Amelia who lost her power to men and the patriarchy in many lives to get it back. She says I can do what you do and do it better, just watch me - and so they did, all over the world!
Trust and Clarity or lack thereof
There are symbols here of learning who to trust with her life, Pluto polarity point in sag in the 8th, learning to trust her intuitive hits, also in over trusting the wrong people, North Node in Aquarius conjunct South Node of Neptune, Uranus in Scorpio Rx conjunct Saturn in Scorpio Rx in the 7th sesquisqaure Neptune conjunct Venus in Gemini in the 2nd. It was said that the man in charge of the radio and it’s preparation including checking the antenna, his name Noonan, was known to be a ‘drunk’ and so there was a lack of preparation. North Node in Aquarius’ ruler is Uranus in Scorpio balsamic to Saturn in Scorpio in the 7th sesquisquare Neptune in Gemini, also Chiron in Scorpio in the 7th square the nodes, ruler Pluto Balsamic conjunction to the Moon in the second conjunct Venus and Neptune in the 3rd in Gemini. This also reflects the lost radio signal and the breakdown in communication. They found out later that there was poor planning to boot on more than one person’s part, on land and in the air, much that ultimately could not be controlled. There are themes of over trusting in relationships across the board as well as projecting unrealistic ideals onto others, the ruler of her 7th hose cusp in Scorpio is Pluto in Gemini, which is balsamic to the Moon and also conjunct a Neptune/Venus balsalmic conjunction in Gemini.If I have to, I will die trying”
Jupiter/Mars balsalmic in Virgo square Pluto/Moon balsalmic, Neptune Venus balsamic!
Amelia was somewhat of a masochist in the way she continued to dangerously pursue her dreams. Her spirit is like a wild stallion that cannot be broken - Amazon in Sag in the 8th. There feels to be a history of grief and ultimate disappointments here with Chiron in Scorpio square the Nodes ruler Pluto balsalmic to the Moon in Gemini in the 2nd. The masochism seen with South Node of Mars in Libra in the 6th conjunct her Original Lilith, ruler Venus, conjunct Pluto, square Mars and Jupiter in Virgo, also balsalmic. How many times must she crash and burn, “Lady Lindy”, as she was referred to, wasn’t so Lucky. When and at one point will enough be enough, will she say no more..I am done with this risk taking life losing nose dive. Rad, is there a way to see through these symbols to see what’s next???
Was this her final dangerous self directed limit pushing dance with death? This brutal emotional panic of lost signals and not being heard and in the end not seen or even found, South Node of Mars, ruler Venus, in Libra making a balsalmic conjunction to Neptune.
In a way of course this is her naturally adventuresome spirit acting our her Soul’s wild desires to push the limits of life, to be a true warrior of innovation and discovery, North Node in Aquarius. To push the limits beyond was has been done before, Uranus balsamic to Saturn in Scorpio, but I know a strong motivator for her was wanting desperately to surpass the male race, to gain a sort of feather in her cap, her way of evening the scales and taking back what was once hers, PPP in the 8th in Scorpio in Sagittarius conjunct her AMAZON, for all that the patriarchal man stripped away.Finishing
What I find most fascinating about this chart is all of the planetary pairs that are balsalmic.Everything Balsalmic, staring with Pluto/Moon in Gemini. Within that Gemini stellium there is also Neptune, Moon and Ceres balsalmic, this theme of attempting to recover something that was lost in the past, something that ultimately also led to her demise. The Sun and the South Node are also balsamic, as is Uranus, the ruler of her North Node balsamic to Saturn. This is a finishing life in many ways. A life where themes where she went too far too fast, Jupiter Mars balsamic in Virgo, either trusting the wrong people or not checking everything twice, her impulsive desires getting in front of her safety as this Jupiter Mars in Virgo squares Neptune and Venus in Gemini.Where does She Go From Here?
Within this, especially at this stage of evolution her soul is learning that ultimate bliss cannot be found and sustained in the exterior world, the short term buzz and the thrill, the never enough Leonian bottomless pit ache will now need to be tended to and replaced with an equal or in her case a greater desire to know the WHY’s of the world and where she came from, who created her and how to make her way back home. It will require that she invert all of that energetic passion toward flying or running or discovering in the outer world and begin those travels on the inner ethers. It is like an evolutionary gate at every turn. This accumulated crisis, one lifetime after the next ending in the almost made it, not quite reaching it’ phenomena, leaving her Soul feeling a humility and a futility that can only be healed if she turns in, flying on the inside, versus taking the physical flying leap of faith again out their in the world in her next life. Not that there were not great successes, record breaking innovative offerings and liberating movement forward in the making, She did all of that, but it was never enough.
It was sad and tragic in a way as just before this final expedition she not only ended things with her side lover and felt to be done with all of that Uranus, ruler of the North Node balsalmic to Saturn in the 7th. She agreed it would be her final flying pursuit on this level, her ultimate goal would be to fly around the world, nothing could top that. At least in the movie the character of Amelia express being done running so to speak, so she and her husband could be together in new and more committed ways. Not that her wanderlust and adventuresome spirit would ever die, it would simply be re-directed to reflect her own evolution. The dream of this change and the opportunity was cut short and this intention for a closure and a new shift of expression and personal evolution in that life was swept away.
Although I never read anything about her spiritual beliefs, it would seem with everything culminating that in her final moments or the days, if she lived that long after disappearing, that she would have had the “COME TO JESUS’ moment that all Souls eventually experience. It is so necessary to help bust the frog out of their Pluto in the 2nd house well, an 8th house cataclysm where in her case watching and awaiting her own death, a death that was due to her own desires, rules of her Pluto Polarity Point is Jupiter and it is balsalmic to Mars in the 5th. It is the ultimate surrender, Neptune balsalmic to Venus in Gemini, ruler Mercury conjunct her South Node, Sun. Her Pluto Moon balsamic would have created the obvious powerlessness as she struggled to survive ( 2nd house) the expedition Neptune balsamic to Venus in Gemini. You can also see this with Chiron in Scorpio squaring the Nodes, her death cutting short her liberation in love and her renewed commitment, ruler Pluto balsamic to the Moon in Gemini in the 2nd.
All desires at some point will be exhausted, like the waves separating from the sea, they build and form and then crash on the shore. They will have their day in the sun but eventually the wave will merge back to the source from which it came. It feels Amelia has gone beyond human limits many times, wave after wave, drowning in her own dreams where all that is left now is a history of experience and a heart to make a difference in a new way! She clearly will be a powerful spokesperson for equality and for the perceived underdog for lifetimes to come, Original Lilith in Libra, North Node in Uranus, ruler Uranus conjunct Saturn in the 7th in Scorpio. She is making her way back to her original nature as her Pluto Polarity Point is in Sag in the house of the Soul and conjunct her Amazon and South Node of Uranus, reconnecting with her own Soul and at some point again, her natural tribe. Peace
