Dr Who fans are split between jubilation and outrage at the news that actress Jodie Whittaker will take over the role of the sci-fi time lord Dr Who in the next TV series when Peter Capaldi steps down at the end of this year. She’ll be the 13th reincarnation of the ever-changing time traveller, who has a massive and vocal cult following.
The BBC series first launched at 6.15pm on 23 November 1963 with a 5th house Sagittarius (much travelled) Sun and mysterious Neptune also in the entertaining 5th. Jupiter in Aries in the 10th points to success especially after time; and there’s a pushing-the-boundaries, on-the-leading-edge Uranus Pluto conjunction square Mercury. Mars Venus are the other two planets in adventuring Sagittarius; and there’s a Saturn Moon in scientific Aquarius which sit in Sagittarius’s natural house the 9th.
Jodie Whittaker, 3 June 1982, has a solid career behind her on stage, TV and film – Broadchurch most recently and also other sci-fi dramas. She’s a Sun Mercury in Gemini with Uranus and Neptune in Sagittarius. So her Uranus is conjunct the Dr Who Sun for a radical change. Her Mars in Libra aspects her Mercury and Uranus, so she’ll be sparky and with Saturn Pluto conjunct also tough; plus she has an indulgent sociable Venus in Taurus opposition Jupiter (Moon) in Scorpio. Quite a mix of light and shade. Tr Uranus will oppose her Jupiter from mid 2018 for several months for an enthusiasm bounce; and conjunct her Venus in 2019 – so an exciting time. She’s certainly looking energised and upbeat from now till early September and again in November.
