May Swenson, 1913–1989 (American poet and playwright)

* May Swenson is considered one of the most important and original poets of the 20th century. She channelled her rising Mars in Aries into the creation of poetry showing a strong use of imagery and eroticism. Some of her poems express intense love between women, written at a time when female homoeroticism was rare in poetry. Mars rules her Venus in Aries (in the First House) which is the only planet to aspect her Pluto.
