Susan Miller Astrology
Susan Miller was born on March 7 1947 at 10:30 am in Manhattan, New York . The thing which stands out when you take a look at the Susan Miller horoscope below is that Uranus is rising (on the Ascendant), square the Sun, Ceres and Mercury. This is what I want to focus on, but will also look at the other major aspect which is Venus opposite Saturn.
Uranus is the modern ruler of astrologer and having this planet rising does mean that Susan personifies this eccentric planet. Being different from the crowd is something most astrologers feel and with Uranus rising, Susan would always have had something offbeat about her life. Fortunately the star on the Ascendant is Rigel in constellation Orion, whichgives good fortune, riches and lasting honors. Uranus here also mean that this honor and wealth had to come through some field out of the ordinary, and astrology is the perfect expression.
However, with Uranus rising in the Susan Miller horoscope, and in a tense and challenging square aspect to the Sun, Mercury and Ceres, there must have been many challenges along the way toward success. Sun square Uranus people stand out from the crowd in an obvious way and through struggle can brilliance in creative self expression, of a different kind.
Sun conjunct Mercury explains Susan Miller’s excellent communication skills which are shown through all the different media, TV, radio, books, papers and the internet. Interestingly, while Uranus is the modern ruler of astrology, Mercury is the tradition ruler.
Sun conjunct Ceres relates more to personal and family issues. It relates to family, mothering issues and some pain in childhood. Another big indicator of unhappiness, especially earlier in life is Venus opposite Saturn. This can bring separation, isolation, inhibition and generally a slow start. I have this aspect myself and can attest that Saturn is a late bloomer.
“she was born with a terrible birth defect that was extremely hard to diagnose and almost killed her. That she had numerous surgeries on her legs in her teens and was so sick that she had to teach herself high school. That she almost bled to death when she gave birth to her two daughters. And that her husband abandoned them, leaving her alone in Manhattan to support herself and her two daughters, when they were 10 and 13, respectively.” 
Venus on the fixed star Dabih in constellation Capricorn is a bit melancholic, just like Venus opposite Saturn. This star rules the center of the calf of the left leg , and it was circulatory problems in the left leg that hospitalized Susan when she was a child. Saturn constricted Venus though the tight opposition. But like I mentioned, Saturn comes good and now Susan Miller expresses this tough opposition beautifully. Saturn is the teacher, the wise mentor. She teaches her love (Venus) which is astrology. In fact Susan’s weekly astrological advice column for the The New York Daily News was called Signs of Love.
The Moon is conjunct the fixed star Alkes in the constellation of Crater which gives good mental abilities and a life of eminence. When you read the quote below from Marina’s post on Alkes, you will see how important this is. The Moon rules the mother and Susan’s mom passed on the love of astrology to her
“Alkes can be a gift, something precious carried by an individual to past down generations through the genes, like artistic, musical or psychic ability. Alkes’ talent is usually of a Neptunian nature.”
The eminence from the Moon comes though the astrology, but it is the Midheaven which most describes the career. The star on the Midheaven in the Susan Miller horoscope is in Nashira in constellation Capricorn which “causes overcoming by evil, which is turned to success” (the health crisis in childhood leading to the study of astrology). Nashira also gives skill as a counselor and a great understanding of human nature.
