Crème de la Crème: Still Fresh After All These Years

Dame Maggie Smith (December 28, 1934)

The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie

When this film was made, Maggie Smith was almost 35 years old: most definitely in her prime.

Now, it seems, she still gets all the best lines, no matter which role she plays.

As her birth time is unknown (or withheld), I randomized this chart. The resulting Yod may, or may not, be applicable to her, but even so, there is one inconjunct that is not dependent on a correct birth time.

Venus Inconjunct Ascendant (perhaps)

You often feel that you haven’t any right to ask much of those whom you love. You feel that you must do favors for them instead of asking for their help. For you, love is an act of service, not self-gratification. Your close friends and loved ones discover that you are quite different in a close relationship than you appear at first. It is not that you are dishonest, but that you show a side of yourself to your friends that you usually keep hidden, often because you are not entirely confident in that role.

Jupiter Inconjunct Ascendant (perhaps)

Probably you will accomplish the most if you direct your energies to tasks that benefit others as well as yourself. It may be that much of your work will not benefit you directly, but in the long run you will gain from it. This is not merely a plea for you to be unselfish, but an assertion that you will achieve your own goals most quickly by doing work that helps others.

Saturn Inconjunct Pluto (definitely)

Even under favorable circumstances, this aspect usually means hat you are resistant to change, that you hold on to any situation, no matter how bad, until it is totally intolerable. Then when change does take place, it has to create a revolution and a total breakdown of everything that came before it. You must learn to adapt to circumstances a bit more gracefully and not be afraid of the occasional compromise.

This aspect usually does mean that you are tough and can contend with a great deal of adversity, but don’t develop an attitude that makes adversity inevitable.

You may find it difficult to get along with others, because you are unnecessarily afraid of what they want from you. Learn to associate only with people whom you can trust.

There ain’t nothing like a Dame.

I am an Astrologer who also writes about world events. My first eBook "At This Point in Time" is available through most on-line book stores. I have now serialized my second book "The Star of Bethlehem" here. And I am experimenting with birth and death charts. If you wish to contact me, or request a birth chart, send an email to (And, in case you are also interested, I have an extensive list of celebrity birth and death details if you wish to 'confirm' what you suspect may be a past-life experience of yours.) Bless.
