Harry Styles: Correction

Oops, apologies: Yesterday I posted a time of 2am for Harry Styles quoting a Tweet from him but as Kevin Cee pointed out to me this was from a fan's Tweet. The incorrect Ascendant this data gave for Styles is right on my natal Neptune. Just goes to show that when Neptune's involved it would be best for me to double check my sources!

Casey Wilson (American actress, comedian, screenwriter)

* Casey Wilson has a rare Slingshot shape in her chart (All the planets are in less that 120° of the circle - actually less than 90° - except for a conjunction of Moon-Chiron in Taurus which is practically unaspected bar an opposition with Mercury in Scorpio). Wilson has laugh-out-loud Jupiter (in the 9th, the house of comedy) conjunct Saturn, ruler of her Capricorn Ascendant. She excels as a comedian, having shot to fame with a two-season stint as a cast member on Saturday Night Live from 2008 to 2009. She was the first SNL cast member to have been born in the 1980s. Her most memorable work on SNL included celebrity impressions of Rachael Ray, Elizabeth Dole, Elizabeth Taylor, Katy Perry, Jennifer Aniston (and so on), as well as sexed-up original characters such as Dusty Velvet, "the paralyzed stripper" and Toni Ward, co-host of "The Cougar Den."

Adrienne Bailon (American singer-songwriter, actress, dancer, TV personality)

* Adrienne Bailon rose to prominence as the lead vocalist of the American Disney group The Cheetah Girls (2003-2008). The group was made famous by the eponymous Disney Channel film and its sequels, The Cheetah Girls 2 and The Cheetah Girls: One World. The group released three studio albums, Cheetah-licious Christmas, In Concert: The Party's Just Begun Tour, and TCG and several RIAA certified Platinum albums including, The Cheetah Girls, The Cheetah Girls 2, and The Cheetah Girls: One World. The group has launched a clothing line, several perfume collections, doll lines, room decor, a book series, and a video games line. The Cheetah Girls group has sold over 3.6 million records worldwide.

Bailon has Leo rising ruled by an angular Sun in the first degree of Scorpio conjunct its ruler Pluto. Just goes to show that a Sun-Pluto personality can thrive in leadership of a feline entity. You don't have to play a lioness, tapping into the cheetah archetype will do!

Christian Heinrich Heineken (German child prodigy)

* Christian Heinrich Heineken was known as "the infant scholar of Lübeck." When he was eight weeks old, he could speak German. He read the Pentateuch at age one, and between the ages of two and three, he read the Old and New Testament in Latin. When he was three years old, he was said to have authored A History of Denmark and recited it when visiting the King of Denmark later the same year. He died on 27 June 1725 at age four of coeliac disease.

Mercury in Capricorn is on the South Node in the first house indicating a prodigious intellect carried over from a previous life and brought to the fore. Moreover, Mercury is aspected by all three major outer planets: squared by Uranus and in a T-square with Neptune and Pluto. These planets were undiscovered in his short lifetime but it seems that he tapped into their energy anyhow.

SOURCE: Sy Scholfield quotes "between 5 and 6 o'clock in the morning" from the German biography "Leben, Thaten, Reisen und Tod eines sehr klugen und sehr artigen 4jährigen Kindes Christian Henrich Heineken aus Lübeck" by Christian von Schöneich (Vandenhoek, 1779), p. 1: "Christian Henrich Heineken ward geboren zu Lübeck, den 6 Febr. 1721, Morgens früh, zwischen 5 und 6 Uhr."

Augustus II the Strong, Elector of Saxony

* Augustus II the Strong is famous for his great physical strength which earned him the nicknames "the Strong," "the Saxon Hercules" and "Iron-Hand." He lived up to his name by breaking horseshoes with his bare hands. That's certainly an interesting expression of Mars opposite Pluto. Augustus was also a voracious womanizer, bedding a string of mistresses over several decades and fathering as many as 382 children. His philandering Jupiter-Moon conjunction in Cancer is propelled by an opposition from Mars in Capricorn which also rules Venus in Aries on his North Node.

BIRTH DATA: 12 May 1670 (OS), 08:30 (8:30AM) LMT (-0:54:56), Dresden, Germany (51n03, 13e44). ASC: 1 Leo. RR: B (from biography). SOURCE: Sy Scholfield quotes "Geschichte der Bergstadt Geyer" by Johannes Falke (Burdach, 1863), p. 62: "Friedrich August (1.), geboren den 12. Mai 1670 Vormittags ½9 Uhr." Translation: Friedrich August I was born on 12 May 1670 in the morning at ½9 o'clock [8:30am].

Hans-Adam II, Prince of Liechtenstein

* Hans-Adam II, the current monarch of Liechtenstein, has a family fortune valued in the billions, making him one of the world's richest heads of state, and Europe's wealthiest monarch. Neptune in the 2nd House hasn't dissipated his wealth. Instead, Venus in opposition in the 8th (ruling an acquisitive Taurus MC) has apparently helped make him a billionaire. The prince also holds authority to make the highest governmental decisions. When it comes to indicators of Plutocratic wealth and power never underestimate a descending Sun when its unaspected and ruling Ascendant and Pluto in Leo, with Pluto opposite Mars.

Nawal El Saadawi (Egyptian feminist writer, activist, physician, psychiatrist)

* Nawal El Saadawi has written many books on the subject of women in Islam, paying particular attention to the practice of female genital mutilation in her society. She has a stellium of planets in genital Scorpio (including surgical Mars) all ruled by mutilator Pluto in feminist Cancer high in the sky.

BIRTH DATA: 27 October 1931, 04:00 (4AM) EET (-2), Banha, Egypt (30n28, 31e11). ASC: 5 Libra. RR: A (from memory). SOURCE: Sy Scholfield cites her retelling of her grandmother's account of her birth in "A Daughter of Isis: The Autobiography of Nawal El Saadawi" by Nawal El Saadawi (Spinifex, 2000), pp. 18-20: "With the first light of dawn creeping through the night of that month of October, before the sun came up ... with the last stroke of four dropping like a dying gasp from the ancient clock on the wall, rose a cry ... of a woman in labour which went through the night just once. Then there was a long heavy silence, as though both the woman and the child had died. ... after that one and only shriek ... the dark obstinate head thrust out slowly ... [and the baby went] out into the world as quickly as it could."
