Although national mourning and celebration of the late Queen Elizabeth II’s life has been protracted for more than ten days after her passing, the official State Funeral ceremony is slated to begin in Westminster Abbey at 11 AM BST on Monday, 19 September 2022. Much of the passing chart remains in effect, but there are significant changes and additions which reflect the funeral itself.
asteroid Requiem, named for the funeral mass for dead; asteroid Anubis, named for the ancient Egyptian deity governing funerary rites; and Rip, in its acronym form “RIP”, a common tombstone inscription. We’ll also be adding centaur Hylonome, noted for expressions of grief, often extreme; asteroids Grieve and Graves, for obvious reasons; and asteroids West and Abbe, to represent Westminster Abbey, where the ceremony occurs.
centaur Hylonome, which at 19 Capricorn will turn direct on the 30 th. Hylonome squares asteroid Grieve at 17 Aries, with asteroid King at 11 Aries, speaking again to mourning (Hylonome, Grieve) for a sovereign (King). Hylonome also conjoins Pluto, modern lord of death, at 26 Capricorn, which ties it to a T-Square of asteroid Britten (homophone of Britain) at 29 Cancer, exactly squared asteroid Elisabetta with asteroid Church on the fulcrum at 29 Libra. This reads as grief and mourning (Hylonome) for the death (Pluto) of Elizabeth II (Elisabetta), in the Abbey venue (Church).
Jupiter rules royalty generally, as well as indicating the outsized nature of the ceremony and its religious overtones. Its exact conjunction with London can also be seen as the large gathering of foreign and domestic royals for the funeral, with 17 crowned heads and their spouses or heirs expected to attend the funeral, among a crowd of some 500 dignitaries and 2000 guests. Almost three dozen near relations, descendants of the Queen’s grandfather George V, will attend, as well as presidents, premieres, and representatives of governments from across the globe.
Venus at 17 Virgo appears with asteroids West and Rip at 15 and 12 Virgo respectively, a symbol of the funeral (Rip) of a beloved (Venus) personage at Westminster Abbey (West). The Sun at 26 Virgo closely conjoins asteroid Abbe at 25 Virgo, putting the funeral site in the spotlight; this opposes Neptune at 23 Pisces, planetary ruler of sorrow.
