Time for a fun Christmas article, this one focuses Ebenezer Scrooge, the miser of misers himself! We're going to analyze what the astrology of Scrooge may look like.
With the character analysis articles, I make educated guesses as to what the natal chart of the character would look like based on what we know about their personality and life. It's fun, and it can help you with understanding astrology a little better too.
Ebenezer Scrooge is from A Christmas Carol, written by Charles Dickens. It's an absolute classic (and my fave of Dickens), and it's been retold a million times over. For those of you who haven't read the actual book (which I totally recommend), you can for free online via Project Gutenberg here:
Astrology of Scrooge: Scorpio Rising + Saturn in Scorpio
As for Scrooge, I see him as a Scorpio Rising with Saturn in Scorpio and the 1st house. This would show the massive transformation that he undergoes with the Scorpio influence, and how it's a really difficult one to go through with Saturn in Scorpio (as all natives can attest to!).
Saturn in the 1st house would also make him miserly, cheap, stingy. Saturn doesn't like spending on anything that isn't 110% necessary, and this can be to the extreme with Scorpio (who governs obsession).
A 1st house Saturn can also sometimes have a really big lesson to learn, or lessons that impact who you are as a person.
Astrology of Scrooge: Lots of Virgo & an Aquarius Moon
To add to the stingyness, there must be, of course, some Virgo in the mix (the stingiest sign), and I actually like his Sun, Mercury, Venus, and Mars altogether in Virgo in the 11th house. Not only does this add to his stingyness, but it also makes him very discriminating (ruled by Virgo) and with few-to-no friends (friends are ruled by the 11th house).
It also makes him very detached from others, and shows what a big impact he can have.
I like his Moon in Aquarius and the 4th house. The Aquarius energy adds to his emotional detachment from others, but the 4th house, which rules emotions, would show that he was actually really soft on the inside.
The 4th house is also very subjective instead of objective, whereas Aquarius is very objective instead of subjective, so you can see him volley between the two.
He does see the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future, so there needs to be something in there for that, right? I'm thinking perhaps Neptune conjunct his Moon.
Neptune is the planet ruling the metaphysical, spiritual, dreams, intuition, and ghosts, and on the Moon, would make it something that impacts him in a strong way emotionally.
Neptune/Moon can also be very guarded emotionally as a way of protecting yourself, and even though you're really sensitive, you seem completely detached.
And Pluto/Scorpio/8th house!
Scrooge undergoes a major transformation thanks to those ghosts, so he needs to have some transformation stuff in his chart - Pluto/Scorpio/8th house energy.
Maybe Pluto conjunct his Sun/Mercury/Venus/Mars, or conjunct his Moon/Neptune. Pluto conjunct a personal planet (Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars) can show you'll have to undergo a major transformation (or many small ones) in your life.
He'd also have transformation aspects going on in transit as well to trigger it, potentially with Pluto making aspects to his Sun/Mercury/Venus/Mars or to his Moon/Neptune, or in the 8th house at the time.
I feel with Scrooge, there would also be some transit Neptune and Saturn in the mix, with transit Neptune bringing on the Ghosts, and transit Saturn bringing on the lessons. Saturn is the teacher and forces us to learn hard lessons. And he sure did learn his lesson!
