News and Events – Wolf Hall
Wolf Hall, the historical novel by Hilary Mantel about Henry VIII and Thomas Cromwell, is being serialised on BBC 2 at 9pm starting on Wednesday 21 January 2015, with Damian Lewis playing the King and Mark Rylance playing Thomas Cromwell (Henry’s right hand man). Henry VIII was born on 28 June 1491 OS in Greenwich, London, between 8.30 and 9.30 am it is believed. He was born on a Last Quarter Moon with the Sun in Cancer and Moon in Aries which made for a sensitive, passionate, fiery nature, and perhaps one who must be obeyed with the Aries Moon. With this combination, it was likely he was moody and impatient by nature, and the Aries Moon may tell part of the story as to why he got rid of his wives when they did not produce male heirs. The one who did, Jane Seymour, died after childbirth. What is also interesting about Henry VIII is that he was born during revolutionary times shown by the planets, Uranus and Pluto, at right angles (square) to each other as seen from the Earth. Jupiter, the planet symbolising religion, was forming a harmonious contact with Pluto which, perhaps, showed his success in breaking away from the Roman Catholic Church, largely so that he could marry Anne Boleyn and hopefully have a male heir – not to be as things turned out.
The dissolution of the monasteries took place between 1536 and 1540, instigated by Thomas Cromwell, when (for much of this period) Uranus and Pluto were in opposition with the Earth in between these two planets. The timing of this series is even more interesting, as between 2010 and 2015, these two planets are again at right angles (square) to each other. Such contacts between the revolutionary Uranus and transformative Pluto (for good or ill) are not very common as they both orbit the Sun very slowly; so when they occur they are of major significance. Watching this series should be an interesting astrological education.
