Biograph

Anne was born in the reign of her uncle Charles II, who had no legitimate children. Her father, James, was then the first in line to the throne, but because of his Roman Catholic ties, he was very unpopular with the House of Lords. Charles II recommended that Anne be raised as an Anglican to help James’s cause.

It did not help James for three years after he succeeded Charles, he was deposed in the “Glorious Revolution” of 1688.  His daughter Mary II and her Dutch husband were the reigning monarchs.  They had no children, so after Mary’s death in 1694, William continued as sole monarch until his death in 1702 at which point Anne became monarch.

We did not rectify this chart; Ms. Lois Rodden did.  Queen Anne is a Bundle even with the Modern Planets except for for Pluto, blacked out on the chart here.  This temperament type is very insular and here, with everything in the Northern Hemisphere increases that predilection.   What’s rather interesting is looking at where her Neptune, that planet of dutiful obligation resides, at 18.47 Capricorn in the third house, but the same degree as Joan of Arc is said to have had her Saturn.

Queen Anne is a Bundle even with the Modern Planets except for for Pluto, blacked out on the chart here.  This temperament type is very insular and here, with everything in the Northern Hemisphere increases that predilection.   What’s rather interesting is looking at where her Neptune, that planet of dutiful obligation resides, at 18.47 Capricorn in the third house, but the same degree as Joan of Arc is said to have had her Saturn.

The Hyperion Symbol is “Small dogs chasing a squirrel” which is all about the gay abandon one pursues one’s interest.  Her Uranus is exactly the same degree as her successor’s Queen Victoria’s Jupiter. Both Queens made a big splash promoting the  arts and crafts of their time; Anne in furniture and Victoria in textiles.

Her third house is also rather crowded, with a lot of communications between her sister and successor Mary, Mary’s husband William of Hanover.

The classic Queen Anne style.

Yet she had a lot of trouble with Mary as she was a stern taskmaster. This appears at 06 Saturn 21 Capricorn but this may have been caused more by sibling rivalry for while the Hyperion symbol suggests “Young girls by a lotus pond,” it also hints as renewal or perhaps re-establishment of another queen? The lack of a progeny had to be on Anne’s mind and she would have been a fool not to realize that without some succession, all would go to Hanover.

At long last Pluto

Her Pluto, not discovered for several centuries after her death is in the eighth house at 24 Gemini 23 suggesting she was quite aware of her image and legacy. 

With the keyword from Sepharial of “friendship”  and opposite her dutiful Neptune in the third house, there is no doubt that the Queen invited and curried British craftsman’s favour in a celebration of interior décor; she planned a major attack on the prevailing French provincial style with an English design.

With her eye on the “future,”  Saturn in Capricorn, she mad a smart bet. While she left no issue and was the end of King James Stuart’s line, her furniture, elegant and timeless, lives on/

The furniture made in America in the “Queen Anne style” was not made until about 1725 to 1750 with the desks and other wooden pieces were much lighter looking than furniture made earlier.

The best known feature of a Queen Anne table, desk, or chair is the cabriole leg. The s-shaped leg was graceful and practical with a slight bend at the knee, making it possible for the slim, almost feminate leg, to support heavy pieces.
