Diana Spencer wed Prince Charles on July 30.1981 at the age of 20
years. At the age of 18 years her Age Point entered Leo and she gets
involved with the Prince of Wales. Leo is, of course, ruled by the
Sun who is joined to Mercury, who is the Lord of her 7th house and the
significator of her partner. In Leo the Age Point joins with the
Moon's North node, a point of prominence, and then Uranus. This describes
all the excitement and attention surrounding the fairytale story of her
engagement to Prince Charles, and something about the impact
this is having upon her life.
accident in Paris on Aug 31. 1997 occurrs in company with her lover, Dodi
Fayed. She was 36 years and one month old
and her Age Point is 12 degrees Taurus. There are two major fatal events in
Diana's life: One is marrying Prince Charles with AP 18Leo, the other
is the fatal car crash and her death with AP 12 Taurus. These two degrees are on the
antiscia of one another. In both cases there 'Worlds in Collision'.
Taurus is ruled by Venus who is joined
to the fixed star Algol. Someone looses their head and acts
carelessly. By exaltation the Age Point in Taurus is disposed by the
Moon. Venus and Moon are square one another and below the horizon. The
Moon is Void of Course in Aquarius and Venus is on the midpoint of Moon/Uranus.
The Age Point applies to the
opposition of Neptune, indicating the build up of delusion
and dissolvement Diana is experiencing at the time.
In the case of fatal accidents of this kind it would appear the accident tends to 'seek out the native' and is unintended and caused by the actions of a third party. Such events are hard to avoid as they are ever so hard to recognize as they appear. The first thing is to realize that environment, to some extent, is an extension of the self. The accident is outlined in the natives chart, although the action is coming from beyond the sense of self and boundaries controlled by the individual. Another things is to warn these events so their trap and potential may be dealt with constructively, without causing unneccesary alarm or hazard.
In both car accidents the victim was playing no active part in the collision, in fact, the drivers in the front survived in both cases. The challenge on part of the victims, the passengers sat in the back seat, which in one of these cases was Princess Diana, was to realize the danger as represented by someone else, put their foot down and insist that secure speed limits should be followed, or else get off and not be a part of the fiery flight.
From the Age of 28 years and through to 32 years Diana's Age Point would have been passing through Gemini, with Mercury combust, and it is likely Charles and Diana were drifting apart from one another with separate affairs going on behind the scenes.
