Finding your Creative Signature in Houses and Signs

Hilary Mantel has just published the third book in her historical trilogy about Thomas Cromwell. ‘Wolf Hall’ (2009) won the Booker Prize and was adapted into a successful TV drama. The second book ‘Bring up the Bodies (2012) also won a Booker Prize. So we might think her signature as a writer is with Mercury and it is true that her Mercury is in Leo in the 11th sextile to Saturn in Libra in the first so she is a good and balanced storyteller. But the books are about history and her particular skill is in bringing fresh insight to the historical circumstances. So we might also look for asteroid Klio, the muse of history. Asteroid Klio is placed in the 4th house. Sure enough her Sun conjunct Uranus and Venus in Cancer -the house of historical archives in the 10th, but these are opposite to Kilo residing there in the 4th suggesting that history might be her thing.
