Britney Spears – in a gilded cage


The bizarre and labyrinthine tale of how 38 year old, stratospherically successful pop icon, mother of two Britney Spears came to be regarded as not a legal adult is due for another twist this month.  In 2008 she was put under the conservatorship of her father, normally reserved for the old and infirm, after her erratic behaviour caused her to lose custody of her children at the time and sent her into psychiatric care. At the time she said she felt like a prisoner in her life. “Even when you go to jail,” she said, “you know there’s a time when you’re gonna get out. But in this situation, it’s never ending. It’s just like Groundhog Day every day.”

A judge has now decided an evaluation is needed after her father withdrew from oversight for medical reasons. She appears to have been unwell again last year.

Born 2 December 1981 1.30am Kentwood, Louisiana, she does have an exceptionally heavy and trapped chart with Saturn Pluto in Libra on the focal point of a T Square to Venus in Capricorn opposition North Node. That sits at odds with her free-spirited Sun, Mercury, Uranus in Sagittarius and a maverick Aquarius Moon in her performing and entertaining 5th.

Her relationship with her father, Jamie Spears, 6 July 1952, was never easy. His Sun, Uranus, Venus in Cancer sit in her 10th so he’d be invested in her career, especially with his Mars in her 2nd and his Jupiter in her 8th.  Their relationship chart has a controlling but also chaotic composite Sun Pluto Uranus conjunction. And on top of that an unkind, one-sided Mars Saturn in a none-to-sensitive opposition to Venus so she would feel trapped and unfairly treated.  At present there’s a restraining order against him denying him access to his two  grandchildren after an altercation.

The same composite Sun Pluto control factor is present in her relationship chart with her former manager Sam Lufti, 16 August 1974, a Sun Leo with an unyielding Saturn square Pluto. His organising Saturn sits in her 10th with his dominant Pluto on her Ascendant. He’s now under a second restraining order.

She has been stressed evidently recently because of her father’s ill health, which with Saturn Pluto Jupiter conjunction moving through her 4th makes sense. And the triple conjunction transit may also be acting as a destabilising influence shifting the foundations of her life. She disappeared from view and social media for chunks of last year which triggered a #freebritney campaign by fans. At the moment she has the effects of the June Solar Eclipse conjunct her Midheaven perhaps deciding her path for the next phase.

Also at the moment her Solar Arc Pluto is conjunct her 3rd house Mercury, exact in a few weeks, which will put her under mental strain. And it’ll be a bumpy road ahead sadly with her Solar Arc Saturn in a tension-erupting conjunction to her Uranus in 2021, with more emotional pressure from tr Pluto conjunct her Venus and square Pluto for a couple of years thereafter.

Beautiful, talented in her field, successful and not happy. What a life.

  1. Regarding Britney, the classic quote by Oscar Wilde springs to mind:-

    “There are two kinds of tragedy. One is not getting what you want. The other is getting it.”

    Fame seems to extract a terrible price for those who obtain it.
