When the King of the fairies meets the Queen of England they need no introduction. President Joe Biden met with the Queen Elizabeth of England on June 13, 2021. It was amidst his first international trip since the Covid pandemic and was dotted with other important stops along the way.
The comparison chart for the monarch and president show two interesting bonds between them. Although unaware of the astrological connections, they both share a zodiacal degree with the Sabian symbol rounded to 1 degree Taurus, A clear mountain stream. The Queen’s Sun lies in 0 Taurus 12, applying in a conjunction aspect to Biden’s Moon at 0 Taurus 59.
Taurus 1 A clear mountain stream This is the symbol of the individual spirit in its irrepressibility, and of the purity and excellence of its real sources of strength. Here man is freed from any necessity to meet the superficial limitations of life in any particular way or to conform to any pattern of events except as there is genuine contribution to an overall consistency in its self-expression. The keyword is RESOURSCOUFULNESS. When positive, the degree is high achievement through an unswerving fidelity to some definite course of action, and when negative, a tendency to waste the potentialities of being by endless self-ramifications.1
Tragedies have loomed over both of their lives, and so they may find solace in each other’s sensibilities as well as sharing a sense of dignity and care for others. The mutual connection of their Lights proves a tie between them that is personal, which figures into their interaction in a way that must go beyond political interests.
The Bidens were advised not to bow to the Queen as they are not her subjects. This well suits a surreptitious king of sorts, since his Sun is in the Sabian symbol The king of the fairies approaching his domain. Biden’s Sun lies in the spiritual and karmic 12th house where none but the deep-of-soul can penetrate into the inner sanctum of his psyche. Here is a man of spirit who wished to practice his beliefs through the vehicle of political philosophy and practice. Finally, he reached his desired goal to “rule” as President of the United States when elected in 2020.
Biden said of the Queen:2 “She was very gracious,” the President told reporters Sunday at Heathrow Airport after he and First Lady Jill Biden held a private audience with the Queen at Windsor Castle. “She reminded me of my mother,” he added. With the Queen’s Sun “tapping” on Biden’s Moon, it is no wonder she reminded him of his mother.
Biden’s Sun degree is among a limited number of images in the Sabian series which express an otherworldly energy described by fairylike or elfin sort of creatures.3
SCORPIO 28 The king of the fairies approaching his domain This is a symbol of the eternal promise underlying all inner self-realization, since any actual fullness of life is altogether independent of the passing state of affairs in a world of time and space. Implicit in the symbolism is the futility of man’s common reliance on people and things through some mere accident of contact. Outer reality takes the form with which he endows it as he exercises his sovereignty over its various potentials in the creative realms of his own imagination. The keyword is ALLEGIANCE. When positive, the degree is a special competence of inward vision and a consequent outward perspective of high effectiveness, and when negative, capricious self-indulgence.
The Queen’s Saturn is close to Biden’s Sun in the 12th house, although not within the 1 degree orb Jones uses when comparing horoscopes. The Queen Saturn is the Point Focus of a T-Cross and is squared by Jupiter and Mars on one side in opposition to Neptune on the other. Saturn’s presence and meaning is magnified by its position as the Reins planet of her Splay Temperament Type. It is her most important planet because it is both In High Focus as well as Point Focus of the T-Cross just mentioned.
The Queen’s Saturn Degree:
SCORPIO 25 An X ray This is a symbol of man’s organic integrity, or of the unvarying structures of nature on which all intelligence depends. There is here an emphasis on the wellbeing of each individual as a foundation for his self-realization in the world he shares with his fellows, and on his responsibility to keep himself fit for the performance of his part in the common functioning. He recognizes himself as the measure of all effective reality, and sees everything around him as a continual revelation or validation of his own capacity. The keyword is INVESTIGATION. When positive, the degree is an exceptional power of analysis, and when negative, uncritical over-sensitiveness to both the condition of self and the state of society.
The Queen was a royal by bloodline, the King of the fairies by Sabian calling. The astrologer sees something more than what would otherwise be just a meeting of allies.
