Only one woman makes the top ten in fees paid to BBC actors, presenters, journalists and panellists, which has caused a raft of unwelcome headlines about gender imbalance for the corporation. The BBC were forced unwillingly to list the top salaries as part of their new 11-year royal charter, though it excludes those who are set up as independent production companies.
The BBC chart does have tr Saturn wafting back and forth over the Virgo Moon this year and conjunct the Solar Arc Moon this December; with the Moon ruling the 2nd house of finances. So the lunar element is being firmly suppressed on the material level. And the Moon anyway isn’t well-integrated, only having one aspect of note – a sextile to the Scorpio Sun. The BBC Moon is also square the Mercury/Mars midpoint which Ebertin describes as a ‘nagging or quarrelsome woman’ – and that is also picking up the tr Saturn conjunction which is definitely argumentative through this autumn.
It is a fairly macho chart with Mars in opinionated Aquarius quincunx Pluto and trine Saturn, and Pluto square Saturn. The 8th house of sharing money is ruled by none-too-generous and definitely masculine Saturn.
It would be interesting to get media outlets who are taking such glee in trashing the BBC to publish their relative salaries as well vis a vis the genders – they probably wouldn’t be that different.
