Coronation of Elizabeth I (January 15, 1559)
According to reports, Elizabeth I asked John Dee to draw up a chart for the best time for her coronation. This isn’t as unusual as you might think, since most royals thought that their reigns were ordained by Heaven, and the stars were the the proof of good or bad timings.
The double T-square seems to be this chart’s controlling aspect: Mars/Uranus conjunct in Scorpio, opposite the Saturn/Neptune conjunction in Taurus, are all square to a wide Mercury/Jupiter conjunction in Aquarius. But in setting that early hour of 7 am, the Moon is inconjunct to that Mars/Uranus ‘lightning strike’.
Moon Inconjunct Mars
Your relationship with your mother is especially important. If you and she don’t get along in some important way, you will have similar problems with other women when you get older. If you are a girl, you may prefer the company of boys now and men later. If you are a boy, you may have serious problems getting along with women when you are older. In either case, you are likely to be very aggressive and unpleasant when you are emotionally upset.
Moon Inconjunct Uranus
Your relationship with your mother may be rather unstable. She may be very involved in her own interests, which prevent her from being as close to you as she would be otherwise. She may be an unconventional person, a real free spirit. The problem is that your feelings about her are mixed, both loving and unloving. You may secretly resent her. Probably you don’t feel that you can express this consciously, but it could come out when you are angry or upset. Certainly this will result in not wanting to form close relationships with other people, especially women. And the people you do choose as close friends are likely to be exciting and different from anyone you have known in the past. However, they may also be rather upsetting.
Mars Conjunct Uranus
You are strongly freedom oriented, but the problem with your attitude toward authority is that you feel that any restriction is a threat to your being. Any kind of limitation brings out the disruptive side of your personality, and you put all your energy into asserting your own way of being. If you want to get along in the world, you must develop some self-discipline, although most people with this aspect manage to get their own way most of the time. These people are definitely eccentrics according to the rest of the world, and you will be also. Fortunately you have the courage to be your own person.
Remember: Uranus hadn’t been discovered yet
Looking back at events in hindsight is a wonderful gift, but it must be remembered that Uranus, Neptune and Pluto had not yet been discovered, so Dr. Dee would have seen that T-square as involving Mars, Saturn and Jupiter (a warrior king or queen). The undiscovered connections show us what really happened during Elizabeth’s reign. Oh, well…
And this triple combination chart shows how the two individuals and the event intersected.
Please note that John Dee and Elizabeth I were only six years apart in age…
