Dame Terry was considered the greatest Shakespearean actress of her on the British stage, because not only because of the grace and refinement she brought to her roles, but the subtle nuances of character could she portray. Still her fame rested on her work with Henry Irving — she never really succeeded on her own, but was an excellent mirror-shadow against the greater luminary. But her  selfless dedication to her roles, made her well loved in her native England, America and Australia; her beauty was legion, Venus in Pisces in the first house.

Her nephew, Sir John Gielgud [fmn] Terry’s chivalric honor was not hereditary, and thus her grandson earned his knightship through his own abilities; dames are the female equivalent of a knight. [/fmn] , carried this tradition on in the modern cinema. She was born as she writes in her autobiography on the “27th of February 1848 at Coventry.”

Celestiology has rectified the renown actress to 14 Pisces 27 for her ascendant. She is a Moon Bucket in the creative fifth house giving her the ability to convey her characterizations to the audience as living persons. She had two children Edward and Edith Craig, and her Moon held true for her son as he carried on his mother’s tradition on the stage, becoming acclaimed in his right though Gielgud was the son her daughter.

Dame Terry had a famous correspondence with George Bernard Shaw in the 1880s. Jupiter in Gemini in the third where Jupiter is in its detriment. The Thor’s Hammer in her chart most likely refers to quick married to Charles Kelly to giver her children a name as their architect father (another Gemini liaison), Edwin Gordon, would not. She died July 21, 1928 in Small Hythe, Kent, England in a small cottage her eyes having failed, her health in decline,  penniless.
