The horoscope of Sarah Ferguson:


Sarah Ferguson (Duchess of York, ex wife of Queen Elizabeth’s youngest son, Andrew) has – over many years – provided the British tabloids with plenty of front page news. Fergie – it seems has a knack for putting her foot – and her mouth – in it. Compromising photo’s – she was once photographed topless with an admirer kissing her toes  – pale into insignificance in the light of her latest blunder. Sarah Ferguson was recently secretly filmed, by the News of the World newspaper, offering an undercover reporter disguised as a businessman, access to Prince Andrew for the princely sum of 500.000 pounds. Sarah accepted a 40.000 pound cash down payment, which she carried off in a hold all. The whole thing resembled a scene from a Quentin Tarantino film (Jackie Brown). Quite apart from the fact that the News of the World have proved themselves once again capable of anything in order to get a news story, the incident does reflect on Sarah Ferguson’s judgement, or rather, lack of it. The horoscope of Sarah Ferguson: October 15th, 1959, 09.03 London (source Solar Fire data).


So, why did Sarah sink so low? It’s all about money of course. Sarah Ferguson has great difficulty in remaining solvent. At the time of her divorce she owed millions and it was the generosity of the Americans, and their love of celebrity, and of the British royals, that helped her get her life back on track. Sarah Ferguson has Saturn in the second house – which of itself suggests lessons must learned in the area of self worth and finance. Saturn is well placed by sign – and it trines Pluto. Sarah Ferguson has certainly been in contact with huge amounts of money in her lifetime – however maintaining a jet-set lifestyle – comes with a high price tag. There is clearly an inbalance between what comes in – and what goes out. Jupiter rules the second house – and in Sagittarius in the first house – there could be a love of spending for spending’s sake. Fire is impulsive – and Jupiter things big, bigger, biggest. It is easy to understand Sarah Ferguson’s incredible battle with the bulge. Sarah Ferguson is – by the way – an embassador for Weight Watchers. Jupiter likes to put a message out there. So, there is a dual influence where finances are concerned and the Sun in Libra exalts Saturn – which means that time and time again, Sarah Ferguson – has proven herself to be credit worthy. Ultimately she will clear her debts. With the Sun in Libra in the 11th house – Fergie wants people to think well of her.

With Mercury (ruler of news stories)  in Scorpio (hidden dealings) in the 12th house of her horoscope – the house of secret enemies and most importantly of self-undoing – it should not be a huge surprise that Sarah Ferguson’s words and actions have gotten her into trouble. Neptune is too close to comfort as well – and this is capable of causing serious errors of judgement. Neptune/Mercury does tend to be too trusting. This is what makes astrology so exciting and helpful. It allows us to understand a person’s motives better. A good astrologer would have said immediately: “Hey Sarah, don’t do this, it’s too shady.” Mercury also rules Sarah’s midheaven. Ouch.

Sarah Ferguson has a tricky but almost archetypical Libran horoscope. There is much – as always – that needs to be balanced. While the social planets, Jupiter and Saturn are extremely well placed by sign – Mars is in detriment in Libra and conjunct the Sun in fall. Then we have Venus in fall in Virgo on the midheaven. Sarah Ferguson has endured so much criticicism about her dress style, her manners, her weight, her love affairs, her life-style. For many, many years not a kind word was said of her in the British press. She was just about coming in from the cold, when the sneaky, tricksy News of the World set her up.

Pluto in Capricorn is currently transitting through her second house… and in the coming year or so, it will start to square her Moon in Aries ( impulsive lady our Sarah Ferguson). While back at the palace, transit Saturn has to make its crossing over the Sun and Mars as well. These are heavy weight transits and reflect the necessity of some serious soul searching. Back in the USA – she will undoubtedly set off to claim control over the powerful but discordant aspects of her character – and prove able to silence her critics – again.
