Back in 2011, I did a post about Amelia Earhart, one of my all-time heroes, and about how transits to her birth chart are still working despite her death in the 1930s.
Although I’d forgotten about it, I’d predicted that more conclusive evidence about what happened to her would come to light in 2013, while Pluto in Capricorn trined her natal Mars-Jupiter conjunction in Virgo.
A reader just wrote to me about my predictions, with the link given below to recent findings of an old, lost set of photos that are believed to show wreckage of her plane.
I’d also recently read an article on Bing that felt quite conclusive to me. It said that a jar of freckle cream was found on Nikumaroro, the small deserted Pacific island she is suspected to have crashed on. She is known to have hated her freckles and to have used freckle cream often, so the odds that it wasn’t hers are miniscule.
The same reader noted that Amelia herself said her birth time of around 11:30 PM on July 24, 1897 in Atchison, KS (giving an early Taurus Ascendant) could have been half an hour off in either direction. A half hour earlier would have been an Aries Ascendant. Given the brave pioneer she was, with so many exceptional firsts to her credit, Aries rising is much more likely than Taurus.
Fellow fans, if you missed Amelia, the 2009 biographical film, try to rent it. It portrays her life and triumphs as well as her unconventional (for the time) marriage to publisher, George Putnam. As you can see here, Hillary Swank bears an uncanny resemblance to Amelia. Richard Gere, as her husband, is, well, a plus in any role.

7/13 Update: Another reader wrote the following: ”Since you are also interested in Amelia, I thought you
might enjoy this latest news broadcast on the film discovery if you haven’t already seen it: ”U.S. Group in Christchurch Tries to Solve the Amelia Earhart Mystery.” TIGHAR’s executive director and their professional image analyst have just returned from NZ with high-resolution copies of the 1938 photo negatives. According to them, the negatives “were preserved on the original roll of film in the original can for 75 years,” and thus they are not brittle or scratched—literally a time capsule.”
She also notes, “When I checked AstroDatabank today to see if they had any note of it, I noticed that less than a week ago (July 7th), they updated their Earhart file with an AA rating for the 11:30 PM time, quoting BC in hand from a baby book page, a copy of which was published in a 1987 biography by her sister. It seems like interesting timing (the update, I mean). “
A fun update 8/1/13: Another Amelia Earhart to fly around the world–but Says She’ll get Back Safe
“If your name is Amelia Earhart, you’re either destined to be really into airplanes or you’re not. Colorado traffic reporter Amelia Earhart is a case of the former. The 9NEWS staffer (shown above, left), an avid pilot, has announced plans to retrace the final flight of her famous namesake, though she’s planning on a happier ending. “One year from now I will be completing … and re-creating Amelia Earhart’s historic flight around the world,” Earhart announced. “It’s a dream that I’ve had since I was about 18 years old.”
It’s a delight to see how newsworthy this remarkable woman still is today–unforgettable!
