Doctor Who - Update: Part 1

On 16th July 2017, the BBC unveiled the actor who will be taking over the role of Doctor Who when the next series begins in 2018. To many people's delight, the new Doctor will be a woman. Despite what some astrologers have said, the unveiling of the actor is not the regeneration of the character. That took place at the end of the special Christmas episode on 25th December at 6:25pm (more on that later). This radical transformation - the first ever female Doctor in the history of the show - is very evident in the Doctor Who chart. 

When Peter Capaldi's Doctor regenerated on Christmas Day into the first ever female Timelord (or Timelady?) played by the immensely talented Jodie Whittaker (more about her later) there was a lot of feminine activity in the Doctor Who chart. The Progressed Moon - at 18° Aquarius throughout December - is conjunct the natal Midheaven. In the Solar Arc chart Venus and Mars are also conjunct the natal Midheaven, Transiting Venus was positioned on a World Point, indicating that this new female Doctor could stir things up on a global level. As Doctor Who is broadcast in many countries around the world, it will be interesting to see the opinions and feedback from international fans of the show. In the Solar Return chart for Doctor Who, the sign of Cancer is on the Ascendant - the ultimate female sign - and it's ruler, the Moon, is conjunct Pluto - the planet of regeneration. 

However, it's the Doctor Who Annual Degree Projection chart which really shows the momentous changes. The Projected Sun conjunct natal Pluto is a powerful planetary combination linked to events that bring about a major change in direction. I think you could say that casting a female actor in the role of the Doctor will do just that.

The Annual Degree Projection Moon is conjunct natal Vesta. The Moon symbolises femininity and the asteroid Vesta is also very feminine, representing the torch bearer, the eternal flame, the sacred fire. So, this influence suggests that the first female Doctor will somehow be a beacon for feminism, a leader, a trailblazer. 

The main influence in the Doctor Who ADP chart which has perhaps triggered the decision to finally make the Doctor a woman is Projected Uranus exactly conjunct the natal Ascendant. When Uranus aspects the Ascendant in a chart, the subject tends to radically alter themselves in some way - particularly their appearance. Uranus also gives the courage to change by adopting an 'I don't care what anyone thinks' attitude. Uranus turns even the most traditional conformist into a rebellious risk-taker. It brings the urge to break with the past, and to become new and different. The Doctor has always been a man - but not anymore!

With the Projected Vertex opposite the Doctor Who natal Moon it's obvious that a woman was to become very important in the show. Known as 'The Gate Of Fate', the Vertex tends to bring unexpected encounters. Combined with the Moon, this encounter was definitely going to be connected to women. Now we know why.

The Projected Midheaven conjunct the natal Sun and the Projected Ascendant conjunct Jupiter, both indicate that the decision to cast a female actor in such a traditionally male role looks set to be a hugely optimistic, positive and successful one. It will completely reboot what is already a cult drama into a new dimension of popularity.

    1. Yes, that's the plan. Unfortunately, there seems to be some confusion about her actual birthdate. Some sources claim she was born on 3rd JANUARY and others say it was 3rd JUNE. I need to find out somehow but as Jodie herself is not on social media, I can't ask her directly. I did ask her fans but they didn't know. It's a mystery right now....

I noticed you were overwhelmed bc you were doing it for free so I wanted to ask if you would still do them if you were compensated. ( I completely understand if its still a no and I’m sorry to bug you but I couldn’t find any discussion of this on your blog so i wanted to ask ). If you are willing , please let me know how much it would cost).Thank you!

    1. Hello :-)

      Thank you for your enquiry. I only charge payment for readings that are face-to-face consultations offline. So, unfortunately, I can't accept your request.

      My main problem with the free online readings was that, in the end, I just didn't have enough time to analyse all the charts and type out the horoscopes without neglecting the blog, other astrological work, and also my personal life. Even if everyone had been paying, it wouldn't have made any difference.

      I'm sorry I can't help you, but if I accept your request, I'll be bombarded all over again. I hope you understand.

    2. Hi :-)

      I think it would be best if you just look around online for astrologers who will do a personal reading. I don't of any who do readings for free - and please remember there are a lot of con artists out there. However, here is a link to the website of a very reputable astrologer, Marjorie Orr:

      http://star4cast.ca/personal-consultations/

      I haven't ever bought a personal reading from any astrologer - because obviously I do my own chart - so I can't tell you how good/accurate it will be. But I do know that Marjorie is one of the best in the world.

      I hope this helps.

  6. Hi Sue,
    I had a quick question. I know you don't do personal readings anymore but do you do like readings for signs. Like the year's prediction of what to expect for a Leo or Virgo. Hope you don't get angry at me asking such a silly questions.

    1. Hi, don't worry, I'm not angry :-) It's a good question.

      I'd always been disillusioned by the attitude - particularly in the media - that astrology is nonsense, superstition, etc. So, I set up this blog to promote real astrology, and to show people that each person's horoscope is unique. That's why I don't do readings for Sun Signs.

      Here's an article I wrote a while ago which should explain things:

  8. how far can you see in to someone's future with astrology?

    1. Technically, you can see as far as you want. However, the further you go - although the accuracy would stay the same -the predictions would begin to not make sense anymore.

      Think of your life as a storybook. If you start reading Chapter 1 then Chapter 2 will make sense. If you read Chapter 1 and jump to Chapter 3 without looking at Chapter 2, you will still understand what's going on in the story and why. But, if you read Chapter 1 and then jump to Chapter 10, nothing will make sense and you'll lose the thread of the storyline.

      This is what happens with astrological predictions. as each year of your life gradually unfolds into the next year and the year after. If I made predictions for 10 years from now - 2028 - they wouldn't make sense to you because you still have a whole decade of changes to go through in order to get there.

      As a research astrologer, I do experiments using my own chart. I once made predictions for myself which were 15 years into the future. The astrological indications were that I would lose a lot of money. That made no sense at the time, but 15 years later, it all came true.
