The tale of Alex Batty who fled his mother’s hippy lifestyle in France to return after a six year absence to his grandmother in England who held legal custody is a heart-warming example of teenage determination. He said it was a life of ‘moving around. No friends, no social life. Working, working, work and not studying.’
He learned languages by himself and studied maths and computing from textbooks but didn’t attend school. His intention is to go on studying, ‘computer science or cyber security or blockchain development and catching up.’
He said his mother held anti-government beliefs and was a great person but not a good mother.
He was born 13 February 2006 and has an Aquarius Sun conjunct Neptune possibly opposition a Leo or Virgo Moon and square Mars in Taurus and Jupiter in Scorpio. His Pluto in Sagittarius is sextile his Sun and inconjunct his Mars. His Jupiter is in an adventurous trine to Uranus and sextile Venus. Fixed, enduring, stubborn, courageous, lucky.
What is intriguing is that he shares a North Node in Aries with Suzanne Heywood, who aged seven was pulled away from a normal existence by her father’s dream of sailing round the world. She overcame parental neglect of her education and safety, to self-teach herself from correspondence courses and make it through to Oxford and Cambridge. See post April 24 2023.
The karmic challenge of the Aries North Node is for the individual to learn to stand up what they truly believe and not be hoodwinked into sliding back into pleasing others.
