The phenomenon that is Game of Thrones returns to TV screens for its final season today and is expecting an audience of 1 billion across 170 countries. Based on George R R Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire series of fantasy novels, it launched on 17 April 2011. This coincided with a tough, military Mars Mercury opposition Saturn in a ruthless and unyielding square to Pluto – influential, control-freaky, enduring, with a high mortality rate. There was also a lucky, adventurous Sun Jupiter in Aries trine a Sagittarius North Node, tuning it into the zeitgeist. Venus in creative Pisces was also emphasised being on the focal point of a T Square onto the Node axis.
There’s been a two year hiatus since the last season so this one lands almost exactly on the Solar Arc Jupiter closing the conjunction to the Sun to exact, for a triumphant last curtain – barring all the prequels, spin offs to come.
George RR Martin, 20 September 1948 9.25 pm Bayonne, New Jersey, is evidently now involved in writing some scripts for prequel spinoffs, though he’s always been keen to spread his writing across a wider field than just sci-fi and GoT.
He has an entertaining and communicative 5th house Virgo Sun in a confident square to Jupiter in Sagittarius on one side and square an inventive, rebellious Uranus on the other; with his Sun inconjunct a 12th house Aries Moon; and an emotionally intense Venus Pluto in Leo sextile Mars in Scorpio in the hard-working 6th house.
Tr Uranus will square his Midheaven as the final season closes in late May for a change of direction. With the tr Jupiter Saturn conjunction due to cross his midheaven in 2021 he’ll be back on a high with tr Pluto following only a few years later. Though he’ll be facing a setback, either health or work related in late 2020 from Solar Arc Saturn conjunct his Mars.
