When you venture into the dark woods of fairy tale, be careful of the creatures you meet — they might not be what they seem. The wolf may speak like a gentleman, the witch may live in a house of gingerbread.
Hansel and Gretel’s witch lured them with sugarplums and cake; then she imprisoned them to fatten them up so she could eat them. Many fairy tales carry warnings about the dangers of the world — sometimes outside the family home and sometimes within its walls. There are ogres and trolls out there, giants and monsters, wicked step-mothers and jealous sisters, tyrants and Rumpelstiltskin.
Unfortunately, I don’t have her time of birth, so this is a sunrise chart. However, astrology works resoundingly on this one.
Maxwell was has the generational conjunction of Pluto and Uranus in Virgo in her chart, like most people born in the 1960s. This powerful conjunction became exact a few years later in those revolutionary years in the middle of that decade. But it is in Virgo, which is, among other things, a sign of service. This generation needs to serve — but who is the master?
Maxwell has Dark Moon Lilith right in between Uranus and Pluto. Lilith is moving between the two outer planets, binding them together.
You can, of course, use Lilith energy positively (we all have to figure out how to do this– see Toni Morrison), but you do find the Dark Moon strongly placed in the charts of serial killers and rapists.
Part of the legend of Lilith is that she killed or ate babies. She was the original Baba Yaga — living alone in the wilderness, kidnapping infants. In astrology, you also see her when there are questions of childlessness or child-loss.
Maxwell’s job, allegedly, was to procure under-age girls for billionaire Jeffrey Epstein, and corrupt them. I have to be careful of libel here, because her family is famously litigious. But you could say something like “she was in the service of the damned”.
She was born into extraordinary wealth — a real princess with Moon in Leo. Her Moon is opposed by Jupiter in Aquarius, the common people, her hunting ground.
She’s ambitious with all that Capricorn — but what do you do with ambition, lots of money, and no visible talent? (Well, I can think of something other than paedophilia. ed) Her Sun-Mars conjunction is aggressive and action-oriented. She would be a doer, enjoying a hands-on approach. Mars is just coming out of a conjunction with Venus in Sagittarius — which can be pretty interested in sex.
Saturn in Capricorn is in its own sign, so very strong. This is hard-working and ambitious, but can be cold and ruthless. Indeed, she must have zero empathy. Capricorn can be cold, and it’s not helped by the warmth of the Leo Moon, which can be selfish and drama seeking.
She’s in the middle of her second Saturn Return, of course. The conjunction won’t happen until next year, but since Saturn entered Capricorn in December 2017, you can bet she’s been reaping the whirlwind she’s been sowing for the last 30 years. Which brings me to an interesting point. Back in 1991, at her last Saturn Return, her father the thief/media tycoon Robert Maxwell was embroiled his final scandal. He was busy stealing £450m from the pension fund of his company. He killed himself (or accidentally drowned) just in time to avoid going to jail. But the scandal engulfed his remaining family including Ghislaine, who relocated to New York the following year.
Note also that she’s getting a lot of trine action from Uranus in Taurus right now. This ought to be nice for a lot of Capricorns, exciting and energising. But I think this is an example of a nasty trine — what she thought about herself and the security of her position in the world is turning out to be untrue.
I can’t say much more because of the libel laws in this country but have a look at the links. I think I can say, as a matter of opinion, what a nasty piece of work.
