Another fun Christmas article, this time about Ebenezer Scrooge, the miser of misers himself (I did the Grinch already, another meanie). Ebenezer Scrooge is from A Christmas Carol, written by Charles Dickens. It's my favorite Dickens' book (hey, I love David Copperfield as much as the next guy, but A Christmas Carol is so underrated, in my opinion), and I also think it's better than any of the film/TV/stage renditions (also just my opinion - I really love it!). For those of you who haven't read it, you can via Project Gutenberg here:
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, a stingy dirtwad.
To add to the stingyness, there must be, of course, some Virgo in the mix, 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 and with few-to-no friends (11th house). It also makes him very detached from others.
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 ghosts, 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, and ghosts, and on the Moon, would make it something that impacts him in a strong way emotionally.
And just like with the Grinch, Scrooge needs to have some transformation stuff in his chart, some Pluto/Scorpio/8th house energy. Maybe Pluto conjunct his Sun/Mercury/Venus/Mars, or conjunct his Moon/Neptune. He'd also have transformation aspects going on in transit as well, 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. And he sure did learn his lesson!
