i just popped over to www.astro.com and put in pamela coleman smith's chart after thinking about her upcoming birthday and a previous thread lamenting her recognition in her lifetime. she definitely had the aquarian "ahead of her time" thing going on, and i was curious as to what else was in her chart. i used the feb 16th, 1878 middlesex england and used noon in place of a lack of an exact birthtime, and would love to hear others interpret her chart. the first standout aspect was an exact opposition between uranus and her sun and a loose conjunction between the sun and north node that i would love to hear thoughts on. i expected pisces with her being an artist and she has venus and saturn in pisces, maybe this is responsible for the stingy response towards her work in her time and proof that saturn does pay you back for your hard work eventually, you just might have to have that reward in "heaven". for us, we have the fruits of her labour now, so thanks and happy birthday!

I would second your thoughts, Scorpio, that it would be lovely and fitting to acknowledge the birthday of Pamela Colman Smith.

Here are the threads where there was some discussion last year and another one to a brief article by Den Elder.
