Runaway Tortoise Becomes 'Shellebrity' in Sweden

Isedor the tortoise is by far Sweden's most well-known reptile. Isedor rose to national fame after making a sensational flight from his family after 60-odd years and four generations. Four years and two lawsuits later, his owners are still fighting for custody over the fugitive. April 3

The news of Isedor the tortoise comes to us just as Saturn stations to go retrograde on April 6. A chart for the mundane event at the Swedish town of Vimmerby has a prominent T-square aligned with the meridian. Over the next few days the Sun in Aries will move through the cross hairs of the t-square between Jupiter, Uranus, and Pluto. Let us remember that Sun in Aries is exalted and often linked to a hero. In addition, stars in the constellation of King Cepheus and his chained daughter Andromeda  form the backdrop to the Sun [16ar] and Uranus [24ar]. Diana Rosenberg tells us that there are issues of bondage and freedom here. This is further emphasized by the position of Sun-Uranus in the 12th house linked to captivity[1] . Among other things, Uranus in Aries square Pluto in Capricorn is about individual freedom from “parental” control.  Fortunate Jupiter in the T provides opportunity for a break from  circumstances that prevent growth.  And since Jupiter is placed in the 6th house that rules “pets and small animals” [2], we have a pet tortoise making a break for freedom!
