Julie Andrews, Mary Poppins and a Fantastical Journey


As a educating astrologer, one factor I’m typically doing is researching the lives and charts of notable people to make use of as class examples.

Prior to now few months I’ve spent loads of time with the chart of Julie Andrews. In a brief seven month span within the mid Sixties, Andrews starred in two enduringly standard movies, Mary Poppins, which was launched on Aug 27, 1964 and The Sound of Music, which was launched on March 2, 1965.

Every time somebody has such an intense and dramatic interval of their life, the astrologer in me needs to discover the timing and astrological cycles that may be reflective of that.

As a quick instance as an example how one can use transits and progressions collectively, let’s have a look at 1963 and 1964 in Andrews chart. This covers the interval of filming for Mary Poppins, from Could – September 1963, in addition to the discharge date on August 27, 1964. As well as, filming for the Sound of Music came about from March – September of 1964, throughout this identical interval.

Throughout filming of Mary Poppins, from Could – September 1963, Andrews skilled the next transits:

  • Transit Pluto sq. Mars at 10 Sagittarius

(A few of these transits started in 1962 and continued into 1963. Others started in 1963 and continued into 1964.)

Evidently, it appeared like her chart was lit up like a Christmas tree! That’s a reasonably excessive variety of main transits to have abruptly. The Neptune conjunct Moon transit actually struck me – this can be a candy story that has some delightfully magical parts to it. Technically the movie used some progressive parts and floor breaking applied sciences to movie a number of the dance and music scenes, which could be a constructive expression of a Uranus transit.

Matters and Transits

These will be demanding a nd difficult, or pleasant and uplifting or a mix of all of the above.

To assist perceive how the transits would possibly manifest, and the methods by which the person would possibly reply to their influences, let’s have a look at Andrews progressions from that interval.


Progressed Mars into Capricorn: Exaltation!

On the finish of April 1963 Andrews’ progressed Mars moved into Capricorn, the signal of its exaltation. It is a nice enchancment for Mars, and might deliver advantages for the person. Mars in Capricorn gives focus, power, endurance, braveness and comply with by means of, in addition to qualities like reliability, consistency and good status.

Pluto sq. to Mars would possibly deliver anger points to mild, or imply it’s a must to dig deep and drive ahead in methods you by no means have earlier than.
