Victoria was founded (as a HBC Trading Post) under an almost-Full Virgo Moon, on March 14, 1843.

YES, ‘she’ is a Pisces Sun / almost-Full Virgo Moon Lady.

Here is her chart:


 … and some ‘pointers’ if you are curious and intrigued:

  • Victoria’s Virgo AC / Moon and Pisces Sun in the 8th house: What you see is not what you get. Victoria indeed has ‘Secrets’.
  • Virgo Moon on the AC – Very Victorian appearance…. and: A City of / for? Women?
  • Outer presentation: Garden City – Growing ‘development’ City? – ReGreening City? Taurus on ‘her’ midheaven.
  • What’s with its multi-cultural origin? Mars in Sag hiding out in ‘her’ 4th house….
  • What’s true royalty? What’s the medicine of the heart? Chiron in Leo in ‘her’ 12th house.

And as a little ‘bonus’, here is the (very literally and figuratively apt)

Sabian Symbol for Victoria’s Sun at


Victoria Downtown

…you are here!…


Keynote: The need to consciously accept one’s own personal limitations in order to concentrate one’s energies and to live a centred and fulfilled life.

Every individualized person is a small island in the vast ocean of humankind. The ego fulfills a necessary function, as it sets boundaries and gives a specific character to the consciousness. Within these boundaries a complex interplay linking and integrating the various aspects of the personal life can operate constructively. In time, these ego-boundaries can not only expand, but can become a zone of intense interchange between the inner and the outer, between the individual and the community, between man and the universe.

This…symbol tells us that the first duty of any man or woman is to be truly what s/he is as an individual. But this individual has a particular dharma, i.e. a place and function in a vaster whole. The island’s inhabitants get subsistence from the sea, and in time learn to navigate this sea and interact with other islanders – and all eventually will come to realize their oneness within the whole Earth, which includes everything. An appropriate keyword would be CENTRALIZATION.”

How fitting is THAT – (not just) for us Victorians?!
