Astrology Death of Queen Elizabeth II and Crowning King Charles III – Astrology Charts

With the Pluto Return of the United States in Capricorn happening throughout 2022, since February 20, 2022, and how that is associated with 1776 and the Crown, this is quite an interesting, timely event marking the end of an era. The announcement of Queen Elizabeth II passing away on September 8, 2022 is 200 days after the Pluto Return hit exact precision. February 20, 2022.

What’s interesting about September 8, 2022 is that we have the Moon conjunct Saturn in Aquarius. The Moon is a personal planet and represents female figures, especially mothers. Saturn represents authority figures, including those of highest authority in political positions of power and dominion. Of course, with a longstanding reign over 70 years, the Queen is probably the most famous person on earth. Queen Elizabeth II has been one of the most powerfully symbolic figureheads in the world underlying the structure, authority and rule of society that affects everyone’s lives. Saturn also represents time, and death, and particularly the social structure of society while in Aquarius. *The connection of current circumstances of the social order associated with technology and science used as a system of control over the collective is discussed more in the Pluto Return of the US.

Oddly enough, with timing and numbers, I’ve heard through the rabbit hole grapevine that the first “17th Letter” post was made on October 28, 2017 precisely 1776 days before September 8, 2022. How is that for a symbolic coincidence?

Also interesting timing, the Corona (Crown) virus was officially declared a pandemic on March 11, 2020 which is precisely 911 days before the Queen (representing The Crown) died on September 8, 2022. Isn’t that quite the correlation?

Astrology Chart of the Day September 8, 2022

Chart of the Day September 8, 2022 Moon conjunct Saturn 1:33 pm GMT

Also, on September 8th, 2022 we had the Sun in Virgo connecting to the Destiny Point in Taurus indicating a significant event influencing our future now. Born on April 21, 1926 Queen Elizabeth was a Taurus.

Also of astrological significance at this time, the death of Queen Elizabeth has been announced just before we have the Full Moon in Pisces coming up on September 10, 2022 and as the last sign of the zodiac is associated with endings, death, the afterlife, reincarnation and spirituality, while Full Moons represent fruition and culminations. This Full Moon in Pisces reaches its maximum between Saturn in Aquarius and Jupiter in Aries visible in the night sky. As the Moon and Pisces are associated with watery emotions we can expect the period of mourning to be as such for many. The Moon is associated to the High Priestess (card II), and Pisces is associated to The Moon (card XVIII) in the tarot.

We also have Mercury stationing Retrograde in Libra this week on September 9, 2022 and the announcement by the new King Charles III stating that there will be 10 days before burial followed by 7 days of mourning. It’s like a changing of the guard and a shift in the balance of power. The period ahead is sure to be interesting with lots of changes and looking back on the past. This all happening during quite a tumultuous time, we’re sure to hear more about economic shifts.

Queen Elizabeth II Astrology Birth Chart.

Queen Elizabeth II – April 21, 2026 2:40 am GMT – Transits September 8, 2022.

As we can see with the Transits of the Queens Birth Chart, the Moon has not reached Saturn in Aquarius yet as of 0:00 GMT (midnight in the UK), but the Moon conjunct Saturn in Aquarius on September 8, 2022 at 1:33 pm GMT (afternoon in the UK).

The Moon represents female figures, especially mothers. Saturn represents authority figures, including those of highest authority in political positions of power. The moon is a personal planet, and Saturn also represent time, and death.

Transiting Mercury is in her 8th house which is associated to death and transformation, and is in close orb of conjunction to her Part of Fortune just as Mercury is coming to a standstill stationing Retrograde in Libra indicating a significant time of focus and change. Mercury Retrograde will now be looking back and getting closer to the Sun as the Sun enters her 8th house, and they will conjunct on September 23, 2022.

Transiting Pluto in Capricorn is also in her 1st house, signifying transformation and death of identity. Transiting Lillith is in her 6th house in Cancer connecting with her natal Destiny Point and Pluto, signifying the potential for significant health issues.

In general, the Queens natal Moon is in Leo, a position of leadership especially associated to Kings and Queens, in her 7th house of relationships, with mysterious, secretive Neptune nearby. Though she is a spectacle to the people, there is much about her that is unknown.


King Charles III Astrology Birth Chart

King Charles III – November 14, 1948 9:14 pm GMT – Transits September 8, 2022

The plan of what will happen after Queen Elizabeth’s death is called “Operation London Bridge.” Note how they always seem to speak in military terms, as “Operations.”

Now this is the one to watch of course as we head into the future.

Looking at the chart of King Charles III (a Scorpio ruled by Mars and Pluto) we can see on September 8, 2022 the transiting Destiny Point and transiting Uranus in his 10th house of reputation and legacy, signifying a sudden change in authority as a figurehead and leader in a position of power influencing the future.

Interestingly, as Prince Charles III has become King Charles III and corresponding to the Destiny Point in Taurus now, he associates strongly with environmentalism and “climate change” as a method of creating and establishing structure in society. (See video at bottom of page.)

His natal Destiny Point is in close orb to his natal Moon in the 10th house as well, and the transiting Destiny Point will conjunct his Natal Destiny Point on April 29, 2023 which could indicate a significant focus on his authority associated to the future. With the Moon nearby in the 10th house, the reactive aspect of his ego could certainly be in the spotlight.

The transiting Destiny Point is also in square to his natal Pluto in his 1st house in Leo (associated with Kings and Queens). His ego could be quite a destructive force and lead to significant changes if the power goes to his head. With Mars and Pluto being his ruling planets, will he demonstrate destructive, aggressive behavior in such a position of authority?

As well, the transiting Moon reaching to conjunction of transiting Saturn is in opposition to his Pluto in his 1st house and in square to the transiting Destiny Point. Will his relationship to people be cold, limited and restricted, and perceived as an authoritarian leader rather than a societal “father figure”? Considering he’s never been as popular with the people and some hold contempt for him especially associated to his relationship Princess Diana, it will be interesting to see how people react to his rule.

Also notable, transiting Lillith in Cancer is in his 12th house indicating endings and the afterlife, especially associated to a mother figure.

Transiting Mars is also in his 11th house now, will he be too aggressive and domineering in his efforts and actions associated to the social collective? What groups and associations is he involved in that he could use to assert power?

Just touching on a few things with a quick look at the charts, there will be much more to explore as we go forward in the weekly horoscopes ahead.

Thank you for your contribution.


The Planets by Gustav Holst Orchestra Suite Collection

I thought many of you would enjoy this collection of compositions associated with the astrological symbolism of the planets, written between 1914-1917 by British composer Gustav Holst.

The Planets, Op. 32 (1918) by Gustav Holst.

Mercury, The Winged Messenger

Venus, The Bringer of Peace

Mars, The Bringer of War

Jupiter, Bringer of Jolity

Saturn, The Bringer of Old age

Uranus, The Magician

Neptune, The Mystic

These compositions, associated with the known planets at the time, were created before Pluto was discovered in 1930.

You can also find descriptions of each of these planetary compositions with A beginner’s guide to Gustav Holst’s ‘The Planets’ Suite.

Holst described The Planets as “a series of mood pictures”, acting as “foils to one another”, with “very little contrast in any one of them”.[9] Short writes that some of the characteristics the composer attributed to the planets may have been suggested by Alan Leo‘s booklet What is a Horoscope?, which he was reading at the time.[10] Holst took the title of two movements – “Mercury, the Winged Messenger” and “Neptune, the Mystic” – from Leo’s books.[11] But although astrology was Holst’s starting point, he arranged the planets to suit his own plan. The first movement to be written was Mars in mid-1914, followed by Venus and Jupiter in the latter part of the year, Saturn and Uranus in mid-1915, Neptune later in 1915 and Mercury in early 1916. Holst completed the orchestration during 1917. More at wikipedia.

Mercury Retrograde in Libra September 9, 2022. Full Moon in Pisces September 10, 2022. NEW Weekly Astrology September 5 to 11, 2022

What timing, again. It’s quite interesting how last week Mars in Gemini connecting with Jupiter in Aries on September 1, 2022, then Mercury in Libra connected in opposition to Jupiter in Aries on September 2, 2022 – how well timed for B*den’s war-like red-room proclamation as “the battle for the soul of the nation.” Considering Mars is the warrior, Gemini is about messages and Mercury indicates big announcements and declarations when connecting with Jupiter. Also, as the ruling planet of Pisces and Sagittarius, Jupiter is about the soul, beliefs, culture and world-views spread far and wide by the media. Especially with Jupiter in Aries identity based on nationality, race, religion and beliefs are emphasized. Jupiter is also associated to religion and we also had the Pope declare we are at the beginning of a 3rd world war at this time. The coincidences of timing connected to words and actions by world leaders is uncanny. The stark black and red imagery is right out of Hades just as we are in the middle of the Pluto Return of the US in Capricorn.


This week starts off with Venus entering Virgo on September 5, 2022 at 12:05 am ET.

Order and beauty can work together for great results, but criticism can be stifling to love. In relationships, greater potential for romance in the workplace is indicated during this period. However, Virgo the virgin reminds us of being more picky, reserved and resistant to advances as a more common approach for self-preservation now. Being treated with respect and dignity is in demand. A smart, healthy, put-together look is most appealing now.

The Sun in Virgo connects with the Destiny Point in Taurus September 8, 2022 6:17 pm ET. This week can give us big clues and increased awareness about health and the health system that determines how things unfold going forward. Food security, nutrition, farming, land, territory, money and all things we value are in focus. It’s a wise time to organize, store and preserve for the winter. Realizations this week can change the future. The Sun in Virgo will also connect with nearby Uranus in Taurus on the 11th, after the Full Moon in Pisces on the 10th, discussed below.

Mercury stations Retrograde in Libra on September 9, 2022 at 11:38 pm ET.

During a Mercury Retrograde cycle we can expect reversals, and back-tracking. Hidden messages and meanings, double-speak and double entendres could be used a lot. The definitions of words being changed to uphold biases and to support deceptions are likely to increase with Mercury Retrograde.

Duality is in focus with this Mercury Retrograde, the measure of opposites, and how they relate and associate with one another. It’s a time to recognize where life needs to find balance.

Changing circumstances in your relationships of all types are in focus during this period. How can you make your relationships better? Being calm and honest while also prioritizing mutual respect can help ease tension when in disagreements between yourself and others.

Sometimes the only way things can change is if you speak up. Other times, you’ll need to bite your lip to resist escalating tensions and to keep the peace. Choices in responses make a big difference in how things play out now, so take some time to think and rethink before proceeding. Consider more than one point of view and the various potential outcomes to help you make best decisions now.

Synchronicities will be significantly increased and more notable during this period. Strange coincidences and deja vu experiences are more likely to grab your attention. Be mindful of repetitions and patterns that stand out to you. They will reveal clues to the truth.

Libra is associated with truth, law, fairness, judgment and justice, all of which need a good rethink this month.

As an air sign, Mercury in Libra is closely associated with information exchanges, so it is especially necessary to be conscious of how biases play a role in how we relate to others.

We can expect a lot of flip-flopping of opinions and lots of contradictions in information throughout September and into October.

Misinformation in the air will be especially heightened now. Don’t believe everything you hear and don’t depend on hearsay as a confirmation of truth. A lot of lies to cause divisions could be emphasized. It takes objective truth and common sense to see through false perceptions now.

People are likely to say things or have biased opinions that are based on a lack of information, and in many cases intentional ignorance. It will be obvious that many people don’t fully understand the complete picture of subjects they are talking about, and are unable or unwilling to see more than one side of the issue. When they later realize their mistake they will regret the decisions they made, or the things they said when they didn’t know the full story.

Truths and untruths are highlighted in all types of relationships now. How people are attached to ideas and play mind-games with themselves and others will be more notable while Mercury is Retrograde in Libra. Is it the truth or perception of truth that matters? Can people handle the truth or do people choose deny the truth with cognitive dissonance for personal comfort?

  • Mercury stations Retrograde in Libra September 9, 2022 at 8 degrees of Libra
  • Mercury Retrograde will slip back into Virgo on September 23, 2022 at 8:05 am ET
  • Mercury stations Direct in Virgo on October 2, 2022 at 5:07 am ET at 24 degrees of Virgo
  • Mercury Direct then enters Libra again on October 10, 2022 at 7:51 pm ET
  • Mercury has been in shadow for this Mercury Retrograde cycle since August 20, 2022, and will finish the shadow on October 16, 2022.
  • Mercury will finish in Libra on October 29, 2022 at 3:22 pm ET

Mercury Retrograde is the trickster and can also be like the sleuth, peering more deeply into issues, investigating to find the truth. This can be especially important now as we are likely going to see a lot of examples of biases especially associated to laws, and how decisions are made – are they just or unjust?

Actions that contradict words will reveal a lot of truth while Mercury is Retrograde, enhanced further by Mars in fellow air sign Gemini now.

We are reminded that parts of our lives can be put out of balance or into balance by a matter of our choices. Everything in the world can change, by making the decision in how it changes.

If you’re feeling out of balance, getting back into something creative and artistic that stimulates your mind and helps bring a sense of harmony and balance to your life is worth reconsidering.

People’s minds are likely to be changed on a lot of issues, and relationships will be affected by the time Mercury finishes this Retrograde cycle.

Money matters, the economy, food and health are also getting reconsidered now, and people will be surprised by what they learn and hear, especially those that have been living in a one-sided biased version of reality, opposite points of view and information revealed during this period could burst that bubble.

As Mercury will also be in Virgo again during this Mercury Retrograde between September 23rd and October 10th, we can expect what’s been going on in the health sector to have quite a bit of back tracking and reversals as people seek real facts and data and ask a lot of questions, especially wherever information doesn’t make sense and doesn’t add up.


We have the Full Moon in Pisces on September 10, 2022 5:58 am ET at 17 degrees.

Pisces is best as spiritual wisdom, compassion, fantasy and creativity, and at worst is delusions, and deception. We could see secrets and great unknowns revealed with this Full Moon in Pisces.

Especially considering we have Mercury Retrograde now, as the trickster miscommunications, double-speak and hidden messages are in the air, and with the Full Moon in Pisces indicating a big spotlight on fantasies, unclear perceptions, secrets and deceptions, it’s smart to be skeptical and to ask lots of follow up questions to get to the bottom of things now.

This Full Moon indicates the potential for dramatic, emotional responses and feelings. In the larger context of what people believe, we could see events staged to cause emotional effects. Illusions can alter what people think is reality. Hysterical behavior could be emphasized and enhanced by over-the-top media performances.

Artists and creative types will find this time to be moving and inspiring. The higher philosophical qualities of life and spiritual perspectives of purpose in life are highlighted now.

Pay extra attention to your dreams now.

The Sun in Virgo connects with Uranus in Taurus September 11, 2022 9:08 am ET. Information about health and technology revealed now can turn on a light bulb about our future. Economic issues, food, energy and supplies are subjects of discussion and further reflection now. In this day and age, is “the science” the truth, or are scientific opinions about the money and political pressure behind them? It’s a good time to ask lots of probing questions as we reevaluate the future we have been manifesting. Expect sudden surprises this week that bring greater awareness.

Thanks so much for be here and for sharing this horoscope.
