Gypsy Rose Blanchard, a Munchausen-by-proxy victim, who was jailed for her complicity in killing her abusive mother Dee Dee, has been released after serving eight years in prison. She spent her childhood with her head shaved, pumped full of drugs, posing as a wheelchair-bound invalid suffering from leukaemia and muscular dystrophy. She was fed medications that caused her to lose her teeth and was forced to undergo unnecessary surgeries on her eyes and salivary glands while cashing in with charity handouts and perks including a free trip to Disney World. When doctors raised red flags, Dee Dee relocated to Missouri where she got a home built for free, courtesy of Habitat for Humanity and told everyone that Gypsy’s medical notes were destroyed in Hurricane Katrina.
Eventually in an effort to escape 24 year old Gypsy persuaded her autistic boyfriend to kill her mother. Gypsy was born 27 July 1991 11.12 am Raceland, Louisiana and has a Leo Sun conjunct Chiron opposition Saturn in Aquarius. Her 5th house Aquarius Moon opposes Jupiter squaring onto a 2nd house Pluto. A disruptive-homelife Uranus Neptune in her 4th is trine Venus Mars in Virgo in her 12th.
I must confess I was expecting a starker chart than this. The Moon Jupiter Pluto certainly suggests a controlling/possessive, drama queen mother. And her childhood home looks chaotic and off-the-wall with Uranus Neptune in the 4th; and a 12th house Venus Mars suggests an affection-deficiency as well as buried anger. Chiron close to the Sun would bring loneliness and low-self-esteem, exacerbated by the Saturn opposition. So there are hints of her bizarre and damaging childhood but not a strong indication of what was effectively torture.
Dee Dee Blanchard, 3 May 1967 no birth time, was a Sun Taurus trine Uranus Pluto in Virgo with a Pisces Moon. Her Venus in Gemini was trine Mars square Uranus Pluto and inconjunct Neptune, so emotionally unsettled with contradictory and erratic reactions. Her Saturn in forced-to-be-self-reliant and hard edged Aries was unaspected, bar a wide opposition to Mars, hinting at a disordered life.
Her Sun fell in Gypsy’s 8th, her Saturn on Gypsy’s Descendant and her Pluto Uranus in Gypsy’s 12th – a deep, entangled connection, with empathy lacking and psychologically damaging.
Their relationship chart had a composite Sun opposition a delusional Neptune square a competitive and publicity-seeking Mars. Confusion was writ large in their connection with an underlying fear that only one individual’s needs could be fulfilled. There may also have been a yod of Venus sextile Mars inconjunct Moon – which sounds likely – again pointing to emotional disorganisation.
Gypsy Rose Blanchard has stepped out into a blizzard of publicity with promises of a reality show and a new husband whom she married when inside. Fans can look forward to her TikTok page – with 400,000-plus followers – and her new eBook, Released: Conversations on the Eve of Freedom.
Not the best way to heal from her ordeal and it won’t be an easy road ahead with tr Pluto opposing her Chiron this year and then her conjunct her Saturn and opposition her Sun through till 2027.
