The Iron Lady

Margaret Thatcher (October 13, 1925 – April 8, 2013)

I lived through half of the Thatcher years in the late 1980’s. This was one polarizing individual. Her downfall was the Community Charge (aka “poll tax”) in 1990.

This time of birth is considered ‘excellent’. If it hadn’t been for Saturn sitting on her Scorpio Rising, I might have tried to rectify her birth chart. That strength (from her father) is what carried her through the dozen years that she was Prime Minister of Britain.

So, there are three inconjuncts, forming a double Yod with Uranus as the focal point:

Sun Inconjunct Uranus

There is a side of your personality that is very restless and impatient with rules, even when you know they are for your own good. You want very much to go your own way and do your own thing, even when you aren’t entirely sure that it is the right direction for you. So you rebel in subtle ways by having sudden fits of obstinacy and moods of feeling very contrary, especially to your parents or other authority figures.

Sometimes the energy of this aspect comes out in other ways as well. At times sudden upsets may occur in your life that totally alter your plans, so that you have to change course entirely. When this happens, you must learn to yield to the pressure and flow with the change.

Mercury Inconjunct Uranus

Your mind moves quickly from topic to topic, often without pausing long enough for you to understand what you have learned. And if there is a lot of excitement or activity around you, your mind may race so fast to keep up with it all that you work yourself into a state of nervous frenzy. Under these circumstances it is almost impossible for you to concentrate or do any useful mental work.

This aspect might mean that you have nervous problems, such as a tendency to get exhausted or a sensitive disposition that requires a very calm environment in order to prevent further problems.

Uranus Inconjunct Neptune (1893-1896 and 1924-1927)

This aspect indicates a generation that had mixed feelings about its ideals and how to implement them. They often felt confused about their ideals, and when they found that their ideals failed because they were badly formulated, this group became disillusioned. States of consciousness beyond the ordinary are very confusing to them, and they prefer not to get involved with such matters.

Goodness me: the Ascendant of the ‘death’ chart is almost conjunct the 9th House cusp. That is extraordinarily interesting, since it shows that her death was “correctly” timed, almost down to the minute. And the resulting Yods between the two charts show that everything she set out to accomplish had been done, even though it didn’t appear so to anyone else, when she stepped down in 1990.

But mere words were not what the people of Britain wanted…

    And it goes without saying that, now I’ve done Mrs Thatcher’s chart, I am more understanding of her.

    Those yods configurations made her a stubborn Iron Lady?
