Elizabeth Montgomery has two stelliums in her birth chart. The first is a 7th house stellium including her Sun, Venus (her chart ruler), and Uranus in Aries. The second is a 12th house stellium comprising of Mars (ruler of her Aries sun), Jupiter and Neptune.

As a Libra rising native, Venus is an important planet and sits in the 7th house. It’s a great place to have a Sun–Venus conjunction if you are in the public eye as the 7th house of relationships can also be described as the house of the fan-club; Elizabeth was a popular actress with a very successful career.

Being an Aries Sun, fiery Mars is also of great importance. It’s interesting that both relationship planets Mars and Venus feature not only as rulers of the Ascendant and Descendant (the Eastern rising and Western setting point of the sun) but are also in harmonious aspect to one another and are in each of Elizabeth’s stelliums which both sit above the horizon.

Elizabeth Montgomery’s Birth Chart Elizabeth Victoria Montgomery
15 April 1933 at 16:38
Los Angeles, California The Family Business

The Sun in the natal chart is the masculine principle first experienced through the father. Elizabeth’s father Robert Montgomery was an established film and television actor, director and producer, who took a break from acting to fight WW2.

This is described in Elizabeth’s 12th house stellium as the young man who fought (Mars) for the collective political cause (Jupiter–Neptune). Also described is the compelling (Mars) and far-reaching broadcasting potential (Jupiter–Neptune) which can remain etched in the collective consciousness as a glamorously romantic image for years to come.

Trine to her 4th house Moon in Capricorn, acting was in her roots and felt natural for Elizabeth to start working in the family profession from a young age (her first acting job was at the age of 5).

Following in her father’s footsteps, she achieved great success of her own during her eventful career spanning 5 decades. Bewitched was, at the time, the highest-rated series ever for the ABC network and ran for 8 seasons. Montgomery received five Primetime Emmy Award nominations and four Golden Globes.

7th House Aries Stellium

In Bewitched, Montgomery’s character Samantha is an unconventional girl (Venus–Uranus) attempting ‘normality’ in a conventional marriage with her advertising executive husband Darrin Stephens. He tells Samantha not to use witchcraft in their marriage when she reveals her true identity to him on their wedding night.

However, she regularly uses her powers for matters of convenience or mischief, much to the entertainment of the many generations who watched the show and enjoyed the crazy antics which ensued.

Elizabeth Montgomery’s Sun–Venus–Uranus conjunction in the 7th house is brilliantly described by her character’s diplomatic yet provocative nature. There’s a fantastic scene in the pilot episode of Bewitched where Samantha goes to a dinner party with Darrin and is outcasted by his condescending ex-girlfriend.

The way she handles the situation is hilarious – you can watch it below.

"Bewitched" I, Darrin, Take This Witch, Samantha (TV Episode 1 Season 1 ,1964) - YouTube

Their marriage is met with the disapproval of Samantha’s mother Endora, who throughout the series would constantly meddle in their relationship to drive a wedge between them. 

In addition, Samantha’s magical friends and family members from the other realm would drop in uninvited and create all sorts of havoc and leave.

No matter how hard she tried to suppress her magical powers, Samantha would eventually rebel and use them – she just had to be herself. This unpredictable aspect of Samantha and Darrin’s relationship is a great expression of Montgomery’s untamably quirky 7th house Aries stellium.

Relationship issues were also a theme for Montgomery off-screen; she wed four times – the second of which was in 1963 with her director-producer husband William Asher who she had three children with.

Their marriage ended in 1973 after Montgomery had an affair with director Richard Michaels. Consequently both their marriages ended shortly followed by the show, as Asher and Montgomery could no longer work together amicably.

12th House Virgo Stellium

Mars (the ruler of Elizabeth’s Sun) is in Virgo, on the cusp of the 12th house along with Neptune and Jupiter. Virgo is a sign which wants to be of service. Placed in the 12th house of closure and redemption, this combination can indicate someone driven by their beliefs for a better future. This is a spiritual and idealistic combination with a passion for serving humanity through justice and charity.

Mercury, ruler of her Virgo stellium is in Montgomery’s 6th house of daily ritual and routine which also has a mercurial and Virgoan feel. In compassionate Pisces (traditionally ruled by Jupiter, and by modern rulership, Neptune), Mercury echoes the 12th house message of Elizabeth’s Virgo stellium creating a servitude/saviour/humanitarian dynamic which needs to requires daily attention.

According to Wikipedia: “Montgomery was personally devoted to liberal political beliefs, and she “lent her name, along with a great deal of time, money, and energy to a wide variety of charitable and political causes”. She had progressive political views and was an outspoken champion of women’s rights, AIDS activism, and gay rights. Montgomery was also pro-choice throughout her life. She was an ardent critic of the Vietnam War, and in later years, she was an active advocate for AIDS research and outreach to the disabled community.”

Montgomery dedicated her time to charity work, in particular a non-profit organisation called ‘Learning Ally’ which recorded books into audio format for people with disabilities.

Passionate about using her status to make a positive change in the world Elizabeth had progressive and liberal political beliefs. Pluto in Cancer is in Montgomery’s 10th house of public image and reputation, making a trine to her 6th house Mercury in Pisces. This enabled her to take collective issues, give them a compassionate voice, and transform the views of others using her public image and ability to influence.

The Legend of Lizzie Borden

Elizabeth liked to maintain a professional image and succeeded in doing so throughout her career. Secretive Pluto in Cancer in the 10th house echoes the privacy aspect of her 4th house Moon in Capricorn, sitting below the horizon at the midnight position (the most hidden area of the chart). In keeping with this, she preferred to keep her private life out of the spotlight.

Interestingly, Elizabeth starred in a 1975 historical mystery TV film as Lizzie Borden, an American woman who was accused of murdering her father and step-mother in 1892.

Little did she know at the time, but she and Lizzie Borden were sixth cousins once removed, both descending from 17th-century Massachusetts resident John Luther. Genealogist Rhonda McClure, who documented the Montgomery-Borden connection, said, “I wonder how Elizabeth would have felt if she knew she was playing her own cousin.

The elevated placement of Pluto in Montgomery’s 10th house is a signature for playing characters with an air of mystery, powerful secrets, and taboo subjects – a witch is one great expression of this; unknowingly playing her own cousin in a true-crime murder-mystery adaptation is another!

Would she have played the role had she known it was her family story being showcased for the world to witness? With her Capricorn Moon and Saturn (ruler of Capricorn) below the horizon, it’s likely she probably wouldn’t or would have experienced some level of internal conflict in doing so.

Interestingly her chart suggests she was born to reveal a hidden aspect of her family dynamics. The Moon – ruler of her Cancer Midheaven – sits in Elizabeth’s 4th house raising her roots into her profession.

Awakener Uranus – ruler of Aquarius and Elizabeth’s 5th house of performance – is in conjunction with her trailblazing Sun in Aries.

Uranus, ruler of mortality and traditional ruler of Aquarius disposits serious Saturn in Elizabeth’s chart. Her 4th house, IC and Moon (all in Capricorn) are ruled by Saturn bringing her home, family life, the psychological basement, into her acting career.

Balancing Passion With Compassion

The stelliums in Montgomery’s natal chart created two ‘hot-spots’ in her life which constantly demanded attention. Being a liberal activist and fighting for other people through charitable and political causes was something she was truly passionate about.

The influence of the outer planets (Uranus, Neptune and Pluto) in Montgomery’s chart being closely related to her personal planets gave her the ability to participate in issues which impacted her generation (and those to come) by becoming actively involved in movements of change – some very progressive considering the attitude of the times she lived in. 

Interactions in her personal and romantic relationships also played a huge role in her life, and she married for a fourth time in January 1993 to Robert Foxworth, her partner of 20 years.

On May 18th 1995 Elizabeth Montgomery passed away from colon cancer which she had previously battled. She was diagnosed 8 weeks earlier, but by this point the cancer had spread to her liver, and nothing could be done to prevent it.

An audio version of Chicken Soup for the Soul was recorded by 21 celebrities for Learning Ally in her memory for her dedication to their cause, after her passing in 1995. 

Elizabeth Montgomery came from a place of compassion in her relationship with mankind as a whole. It could be said that she believed in love right to the very end.

Shift happens, and the dust might finally be starting to settle after the majorly disruptive Uranus transit which entered your sign back in March (and prior to that, May 2018).

Managing your own and other’s resources during April, you may have to take a leap of faith when investing your efforts in ideas other than your own. Attempting to live up to some challenging expectations could stretch you beyond your usual capabilities and may leave you feeling drained.

A power struggle is implicated, though it’s not necessary to resort to pistols at dawn! The imbalance suggested could be more of a tug of war which could be resolved if you try to understand the beliefs and motivations of those you are trying to cooperate with.

The Full Moon on the 19th suggests you are ready to put an existing chapter to rest in favour of doing something more rewarding. If your patience has been tested and you’re fed up of being pleasant in order to keep the peace, it could be time to look elsewhere for appreciation.

Your ruling planet Venus enters your closure zone on the 20th, and some sacrifices may be required to establish your footing with your personal and financial assets. The pull to go out and socialise may be strong, so remember: discipline is not doing the things you want right now, so you have the things you really want in the long-run.

When the Sun meets God of change Uranus on the 22nd you’ll feel ready to choose which changes you want to implement. You might have a few personal revelations, too.

Sound stressful—it could be—so make sure you’ve booked in some activities which keep your feet on the ground and sharpen your focus as your mind will be on fire with a cacophony of ideas.

A game-changing opportunity may present itself on the 10th and you could find yourself in a powerful position. Intentions set during this time will have a manifesting potency which could bring your ideas into the physical realm. Be careful what you wish for!

The 19th’s Full Moon offers a chance for you to have some fun in the midsts of this relentlessly energetic month. If you’ve been working on a creative project, now could be the time where your efforts begin to bear fruit.

It’s a transitional month for you Cancer, as you wind-down hermit crab style and go into your cosy shell for some self-care. It’s more of an incubation period as you try to work out which direction to focus your attention.

The recent Mercury retrograde may have stirred a longing for escape from the humdrum of daily life, inspiring you to reconnect with your crabby origins. A break from monotony and a change of scene could help you come up with some creative solutions.

It feels like a good time for closure and if you’ve lost faith in your usual routine, it’s a good time to think about what needs to go, and explore new ways to bring meaning to your life again. Spending some time figuring out your needs and goals could help you re-prioritise the absolute necessaries and maintain the right balance between your public and private life. With a few ideas and different pathways to pursue, a sacrifice may be necessary to make certain potentials a possibility.

The Full Moon on the 19th brings home life into focus. Having serious conversations now could help redress any imbalances. Compromise only works if both parties are making an effort to contribute so make sure you’re pulling in the same direction.

Congenial Venus brings good vibes to your professional life from the 20th so use this time to grow into your role or seek financial recognition. However, don’t be too trusting when discussing your plans with colleagues as their strategy may not include you.

The negative and irresponsible image of marijuana users portrayed by the media and film industry compound the public image of the drug, so that those who haven’t had cause to research the genuine curative properties of marijuana can be quick to discard its credibility. Being prepared to look at alternative medicine with an open mind is met with extremist attitudes, and those that do risk being seen as a ‘hippy’ or ‘druggie’ tarnished by the judgement of those who assume the only plausible intention of these individuals is to get high.

Marijuana has been used as an alternative to modern conventional medicine for years; its effective use as a pain killer has many referring to it as a miracle drug. But there are people out there staunchly opposed to the use of illicit drugs to alleviate symptoms of suffering – from those who unquestionably follow the law to those with religious beliefs and preconceived ideas; social conditioning also plays an enormous part in this taboo area.

Seizure Control

I felt compelled to address this subject after seeing the moving story on BBC news on the 17th of June about a mother, Charlotte Caldwell, who took the law into her own hands and flew her 12-year-old son abroad to receive treatment for his severe and debilitating epilepsy. Billy Caldwell “used to suffer up to 100 seizures per day, but has now not had a single seizure for 300 days” according to Ms Caldwell, who also said the cannabis oil has improved Billy’s autism, evidencing the fact he has been better at making eye contact and showing more engagement with his books and toys – after receiving treatment with cannabis oil.

On her return to the UK on the 11th June, Tory policing minister Nick Hurd ordered the confiscation of medicinal cannabis oil from Charlotte Caldwell at Heathrow Airport. His actions forced Billy Caldwell’s treatment to be stopped cold-turkey with no opportunity to slowly wean him off the drug – a method which is recommended by medical professionals for long-term prescribing treatments.

Charlotte stated that her son would surely die if he wasn’t allowed to take the medication and that “If Billy dies, which is looking increasingly possible, then the Home Office, and (minister) Nick Hurd, will be held completely accountable”.

An Astrological Perspective

On the evening of the 15th of June, Billy Caldwell was back in hospital as a medical emergency, forcing Home Office Minister Nick Hurd to perform a complete 180° turn on his previous decision to withhold the medication.

I cast a sunrise chart for the 15th June 2018 in London to see what was happening. This is the day Billy Caldwell was admitted to Hospital – Initially to Paddington Hospital and then in the evening to Chelsea and Westminster Hospital – where he was said to be in a “life-threatening condition”.

The chart of the day shows Neptune in Pisces, Jupiter in Scorpio and the Moon in Cancer completing a Grand Trine between the three watery planets.

The Sun at the moment it rose that day, at 24° Gemini – the discovery degree of Uranus – highlights the nervous system and neurological disorders which Gemini rules. Epilepsy falls into this category. As a result of this, the 15th of June has an added Uranian flavour making it a powerful day for change, sudden reversals, and awareness of alternative perspectives.

Uranus in Taurus

Uranus ingressed Taurus back in May 2018 and has already presented itself in a variety of interesting and revolutionary ways. In this case, sitting at the first degree of Taurus (the sign ruling nature, the body, and the physical environment), Uranus raises our awareness of issues affected by this area of life. A plant which can heal debilitating mental and physical disorders is thrust into the spotlight and the mass media reports a story which could revolutionise drug laws in the UK. Trined by Saturn retrograde in Capricorn, as well as squared by Venus in Leo, Uranus calls for the laws and traditions of the UK to be reconsidered under compassionate review.

Jupiter in Scorpio has presented an issue considered to be a taboo to many, forcing us to broaden our perspective on the issue and consider the bigger picture as far as the use of medicinal marijuana is concerned. In the 5th house, Jupiter has highlighted the issue through a vulnerable young child whose life has been transformed by the “illicit” substance.

Bending the Law

Neptune in Pisces in the 9th house has called for a law to be ‘bent’ in order to make a special exception for Billy Caldwell, whose situation has challenged the perspectives of politicians and law enforcers alike. Politics and Law are directly associated with the 9th house and Pisces is the sign of redemption and compassion. In association with Jupiter in Scorpio in the 5th house, the precarious condition of this child’s life has given us all a very extreme case to consider; the benefits of loosening laws and granting alternative options to those who haven’t had success with prescribed, legal medication.

The Moon in Cancer feeds into this in a special way – not only is it completing a Grand Trine in the caring and compassionate water signs, but will have also passed the degree that Pluto was discovered (17° Cancer), giving extra transformational power to this potent degree of the zodiac plus echoing Jupiter’s position of power, currently disposited by Pluto.

Saturn, Mercury, and Chiron have formed a potent t-square with Saturn in Capricorn wishing to preserve tradition, the definitive word of the Law and the word “no” as far as questions are concerned. However, Saturn’s retrograde motion indicates an element of reconsideration. Mercury in opposition to Saturn is about having ideas challenged by a life-threatening situation. This is also the old man vs the young man. In Cancer, the care and welfare of a child are called into question, as is the need to review the serious issues that surround the reasoning behind a decision to deny potentially life-saving medication.

The Wounded Healer

The Apex of the t-square is Chiron in Aries, the wounded healer in the sign of the warrior and ruler of the top of the head and brain. The potential of healing here comes by breathing new life into a situation which requires fresh review; the pain caused by this neurological disorder could pioneer a new treatment method through the suffering of this young boy. Billy Caldwell has become a symbol of hope for everyone suffering from chronic and debilitating illnesses.

The outcome of the situation could have been very different had Nick Hurd said no and decided to stick to the letter of the Law. He could have found himself in a very serious – and potentially indefensible – situation if a helpless young child had died as a result of a policy he enforced. However, in a break-through for alternative medicine and medicinal marijuana use, the Right Honourable Nick Hurd chose to backtrack against his previous stance – prohibiting the use of medical marijuana by Law – in order to do what was right, and to allow the use of the only medication capable of alleviating the life-threatening seizures which have controlled every aspect of Billy Caldwell’s life since birth.

With a child’s life on the line, Hurd’s actions were being viewed as inhumane and callous by many who understand the need for the UK’s current, archaic drug laws to be reviewed in cases such as these.

Human Rights

There were also questions over the legal implications of Hurd’s actions, particularly when considering that his decision may have been in breach of Human Rights Article 2: Right to Life – being enforced under the instruction of Mr. Hurd.

Nick Hurd was born on 13th May 1962, in London. There is no birth time so I cast a noon chart for him.

Interestingly, he has Jupiter in Pisces and Neptune in Scorpio (the reversal of their current positions by transit). Accompanied by the Moon in Cancer on the day Billy Caldwell was admitted to hospital, this Grand Trine has played directly into his personal experience.

In this instance, the Moon in Cancer can be seen directly in a mother’s call to action for urgent and immediate care (necessitating the bending of a harsh, antiquated law which required immediate review).

With the transiting Moon passing his North Node in Leo and opposing Saturn in Aquarius, Mr Hurd’s decision to allow Billy Caldwell to receive this illegal treatment created an historic precedent. Billy Caldwell isn’t the only person who could benefit from this type of treatment and those suffering from chronic and debilitating illnesses may be able to resort to this alternative medicine in the future.

Groundbreaking Decision

With Mercury in Gemini making trine/sextile to the nodes, this will have been a decision which challenged Nick Hurd’s comfort zone in favour of a situation which will change the course of history forever. Regardless of the current law, the flexibility that has been utilised in order to implement this decision is groundbreaking and has already set a precedent for the use of medicinal marijuana. The law will have to be reviewed and as a Taurus, flexibility is likely not going to be the easiest stance for Nick Hurd to take – though with the help of Uranus in his sign, this may come a little easier than before.

Having just had his nodal return, and the total Lunar eclipse on 27th July at 04°44′ Aquarius, an acceleration of change to his fixed views and loyalty to the law is being presented through challenging situations. Mars retrograde is also highlighting the need to assess the use of pioneering treatments and with Mercury retrograde recently moving over these points, there is a lot of friction requiring his fixed position to be reconsidered.

Let’s face it, Nick Hurd really is the man who can make a difference in this case and his staunch attitude towards the the enforcement of drug laws have been challenged by a genuine case where his decision could leave him accountable for the death of an innocent young boy. You can understand his position in this situation, but with many countries legalising cannabis (both for medical and recreational use) the concern over keeping this drug totally illegal in any form throughout the UK really should not be emphasized as strongly as it still is.

However, as well as being seen as a politically sensible decision – for his own self-interest in not publicly denying a child life-saving medication – you may also look to see if the decision had a more human basis (owing to the fact that Mr Hurd himself is a father of 6).

One Small Step For Man

In recent years, the world has been waking up to the unnecessarily tight regulations on the substance. As I write, 29 states in the US have some kind of legalisation program and Canada legalised marijuana for medicinal use in 2001. Justin Trudeau, Prime Minister of Canada is making the necessary adjustments to have all use (including recreational) of marijuana legalised – a policy promise which helped get him elected to office on 19 October 2015.  

The thing that strikes me most about this story isn’t that this is a one-off. It isn’t a little event which doesn’t mean anything. Clinicians have confirmed that it was dangerous to take Billy Caldwell off of the medicine he had been using, and that since commencing treatment he had gone nearly a year without a seizure – showing the drug’s clear effectiveness in helping to control his symptoms.

This is a medical breakthrough and the government have to acknowledge the power of this natural drug in alleviating and controlling the debilitating effects of many illnesses and medical conditions – regardless of whether or not they chose to legalise it.

With the promising steps being made during the Uranus–Saturn Trine plus the Jupiter–Neptune trine, new attitudes can be formed from the archaic attitudes of yesterday and we can put our faith in the healing and medicinal properties of nature, once again.

I’ve had Neptune square my Ascendant and Descendant axis for a while, and one of the things I noticed a while ago was that I started writing in my diary in pencil (my chart ruler is Mercury and I always carry my diary with me).

I thought this was strange as I’m a Capricorn, and Saturn has been in his rulership (and approaching my sun) since I started doing this.

At a time of harsh realism and practicality, I had opted for an impermanent way of listing my life events.

After years of writing with a black biro, I suddenly appreciated the fine tip of a pencil making my writing a lot smaller (different pens allow different writing styles in me).

I guess I wanted to record more information in detail. So I guess it’s Saturnian in its attempt to be neater and more informative, even though the pencil seems the least Saturnian way to mark a page.

Then today got me thinking that actually I’ve had Neptune within orb of squaring my Ascendant and Descendant (and tine my Moon and sextile my Sun) since January 2017, though this year it has been very tight.

Smoke Screen

The other thing I have noticed is I’ve opted to switch my black liquid eyeliner for a softer, smokier look, lining my eyes with black eyeshadow instead.

When applying my makeup in the mornings I noticed my liquid eyeliner was taking longer to apply. I put it down to natural changes (due to ageing) in my skin.

I decided to adapt my makeup routine (which has been a thing for me since Uranus entered Taurus back in May 2018) by adopting a slightly different makeup routine. I thought I’d soften my look with a dreamy, smokey line around the eyes.

Like any normal woman I tried to fight the signs of ageing at first, but soon realised that if there really was a cure for aging, there’d be a very rich person out there selling it in tinctures…

…Cue Isabella Rosellini in Death Becomes Her.

via GIPHY

With my goaty hooves perfectly grounded, I decided to embrace my steady decline into cosmetic obscurity (pessimistic much?!) and accept that I am very lucky to have made it this far in one piece.

Amy Winehouse—a fellow 17° Gemini Ascendant like myself, (with a Moon –Neptune conjunction in Sagittarius)—joined ‘the 27 club’ with some of the many greats.

As difficult as it is getting older and witnessing the ageing process first-hand, I appreciate the life experience refused to many and my changing appearance while I earn my years of wisdom.

But It’s Deeper Than That

I didn’t really think much of these things at the time, but it dawned on me today that they are both little details that are connected to my Neptune transit (as well as being paired with Venus’ current cruise through Pisces due to meet by conjunction this evening).

It’s funny because as an astrologer you can look at the chart and describe the essence of then symbolism, but you can’t always see what has to happen in reality order for the events to manifest.

It’s easy to use buzz words or come up with sentences like “Neptune will create a sense of sacrifice in your relationships. You may be swayed between what is most important to you, and a dependency on other people.”

Or perhaps “Your entanglement with other people creates an impossible situation where no matter what you do, you’ll lose touch with a part of yourself”.

The client can take away the interpretation and integrate it as they recognise the events unfolding.

But how often do we consider that so much happens to facilitate out evolution? Would you have considered it could affect something as simple as opting to journal with a pencil, or changing a long-held make-up ritual?

It still amazes me how planetary transits permeate every waking moment of our lives.
