[Least aspected Uranus]
Of the Rossetti children, Gabriel was the only rebel. At thirteen he left school to enter Sass’s, the preparatory academy for the Royal Academy Schools ... but soon he was cutting classes and chafing at the tedious assignments, pronouncing them trivial and mechanical, death to the soul of an artist...While William was shuttling back and forth to his office in Old Broad Street, Gabriel was drifting around the city, exploring and writing poetry when he should have been carefully crosshatching. This kind of behavior earned him a reputation as the family maverick, the scapegrace who worried and aggravated his parents.
–Gay Daly, Pre-Raphaelites in Love.
Dante Gabriel Rossetti
The multi-talented painter and poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti was born in London, in the center of a Transcendental Midpoint-Field formed by Primary Uranus, which runs in a vertical, Midheaven position over central Europe; Secondary Moon, which rises just west of Ireland; and Tertiary Sun, which rises over southern England, just west of London. He attended the Royal Academy College School, in London, where he met Millais, Holman Hunt, and Thomas Woolner: an association resulting in the founding of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood. The Brotherhood briefly published a magazine, The Germ, in which The Blessed Damozel (1842)–composed when Rossetti was only nineteen and considered his most powerful and poetic work–made its public debut.
In one of his most “eccentric and unconventional” gestures (Primary Uranus), Rossetti exhumed the body of his beloved wife, Elizabeth Siddel, during the first week of October 1869, so that he could retrieve a manuscript of youthful poems that he had placed in her coffin shortly after her death (she died on February 10, 1862, from laudanum poisoning).
For most of his life he remained in the London vicinity of his Uranus / Sun midpoint-field but, due to illness, on February 1882 he relocated to Birchington-on-Sea, Kent (near Margate), where he died on the evening of April 9, 1882.
