Paul McCartney and Heather Mills
A Marriage of Wounded Healers
NewsScope, June 17, 2002
Last Tuesday, wedding bells tolled for Sir Paul McCartney and former model Heather Mills at a 17th century castle near Northern Ireland. After the "rock 'n roll" ceremony, the couple was whisked away by helicopter to begin their honeymoon on a private tropical island.
Paul McCartney was born a Mercury-ruled Gemini (June 18, 1942; 2:00 pm; Liverpool, England), and has Virgo Rising, which is also ruled by Mercury. His Mercury, prominently located near the Midheaven, and dramatically enhanced by a sextile to his Leo Moon, marks him as a professional writer. Since musical Neptune is on his Ascendant, he writes songs. The wedding took place right after the Solar Eclipse and Saturn formed a triple conjunction with McCartney's Mercury.
Heather Mills was born a mission-oriented Capricorn with her Moon in curious Gemini (January 12, 1968). Her life took a radically new direction on August 8, 1993 as the epochal Uranus-Neptune conjunction took place right on her Sun. Her leg was amputated following a car accident, and ever since then she has been an advocate for holistic treatment for amputees.
Chiron, the natural indicator for wounding and holistic health, is the strongest connection between their two charts. Her Chiron is in his Seventh House of partners and exactly square his Sun. They recognize and empathize with each other's physical and psychological wounds. Another important link between their charts is Juno, the marriage asteroid. Their Junos are in the exact same degree of Scorpio. McCartney's progressed Juno is now perfectly squaring his natal Chiron, marking the ceremony as a marriage of wounded healers.
