An Astrological Exploration of Adoption: Finding Mother in the Birth Chart
As an adopted child, I have constantly reflected on the image and influence of ‘mother’ in the birth chart. This led me to ask the obvious question, ‘does our horoscope reveal how the birth mother and the adopted mother respond to us and how do we perceive them both?’ Fay’s investigation and subsequent findings have inspired this lecture. As part of her Diploma thesis, Fay explored the image of mother in the birth chart and whether it mirrored the relationship with both mothers. Fay also interviewed a cross section of adopted people and incorporated their personal stories, the Moon in their charts and other significant planetary findings.
