Subject: Controversial Relationship between King Edward VIII and Wallis Simpson
I would say that the relationship between King Edward VIII aka the Duke of Windsor and Wallis Simpson was controversial. Wallis Simpson was already married when Prince Edward met her,and they had an intimate relationship. Edward abdicated for the woman that he loved. This led to the coronation of King George VI which made it possible for Elizabeth to be Queen Elizabeth II. He was given the title,Duke of Windsor.
Before, during and after World War II, the Windsors were suspected by many in government and society of being Nazi sympathizers. They even visited Adolf Hitler in 1937.
Edward,Duke of Windsor had a history of being involved with many married women before Wallis. Rumored to be a Nazi sympathizer. During World War II he served as Governor of the Bahamas, where he was plagued by rumours and accusations that he was pro-Nazi. He reputedly told an acquaintance, "After the war is over and Hitler will crush the Americans... we'll take over... They [the Commonwealth] don't want me as their king, but I'll soon be back as their leader." He told a journalist that "it would be a tragic thing for the world if Hitler was overthrown."
Sun in 2'21 Cancer
Juno sesquiadrate Eris - '44
(I strongly recommend using only 30 minutes of arc for Eris in synastry....with slightly smaller orbs for trines like 20 minutes of arc...sextiles 10 or 15....quincunxes,semisextiles,semisquares,sesquiquadrates less than 10 minutes)
In this case, there are strong Eris aspects because their Eris' conjunct and Wallis has Eris aspects.....so its more like they are connected on collective level with their relationship having profound effect on many
Juno sesquiquadrate Eris - '39
Edward's Solar Arcs:
Solar Arc Eris in 1'41 Taurus Retrograde
Transiting Eris in 2'50 Aries Retrograde
square Natal Sun in 2'20 Cancer
His Solar and Transits involving Eris seem to reflect the times of controversy as King and being involved with Wallis and his resulting abdication for a highly controversial woman.
