Marc Jones did not use TransNeptunians; he knew of them, reviewed them and felt they had nothing to offer, so he never included them in his oeuvre. He added in some Arabian Parts, but none of them were valid for making aspects: they stood alone. Some of that is problematic with Miss Rehman’s chart but workable to create her Grand Trine for her Locomotive Temperament Type open onto the western side..


Using our rectified chart (above), we give our Tamil beauty an ascendant of 19 Gemini, but are then forced into an Earth Grand Trine from Mercury at 21.10 Capricorn to 09.49 Uranus in Taurus in the eleventh house to Neptune in Virgo at 20.43 at the nadir. Uranus is in Taurus again, eighty years later, perhaps that is why she is having a film (an Uranian creation) resurgence. Here it is in the eleventh house showing her identification with her fans. Trine the Neptune in the fourth, it gives an elusive quality to that physical beauty we can see and enjoy but not truly touch. From Neptune we trine over to Mercury in Capricorn in the eighth, giving us a glimpse into her humanitarian work that got cut off by her father’s death and forced her (Vulkanus is conjunct the Ascendant) into another line of work.weaheea rehman

Success though allowed her to leave acting and Bollywood and take up her earlier calling though not as she had hoped as a doctor. Here we see Uranus conjunct Kronos giving her a delayed start to her dreams (Neptune) to take root (Mercury).

But as the great bard said, all’s well that end’s well and so it has been. Like all Hindi movies this one is long, but the music by Ravi Shankar is delightful and Johnny Walker brings smiles along the way. Miss Rehman is the long cool lady in a black dress.
