Doris Lessing Gets Nobel Prize Weeks before her THIRD Saturn Return


Doris Lessing who won the Novel Prize for Literature today is approaching her third Saturn Return. Here’s her chart.
Showing her Saturn in Virgo qualities, she completely rewrote one book, “The Fifth Child” before she felt it had integrity.

Her very unhappy life is shown by the conjunt of Mars/Venus and Saturn. That is a person effectively robbed of all personal happiness and comfort.
Lessing’s Saturn is at 8 degres of VIrgo. Her chart shows a near-kite pattern including a Grand Trine between Mars/Pluto and Uranus. She could have withstood anything, probablyy did, but would never abide weak people.
Lessing had two short marriages in the 1940s.

Lessing resists being characterized as a feminist.  Around the time of her second Saturn Return she made this statement:

What the feminists want of me is something they haven’t examined because it comes from religion. They want me to bear witness. What they would really like me to say is, ‘Ha, sisters, I stand with you side by side in your struggle toward the golden dawn where all those beastly men are no more.’ Do they really want people to make oversimplified statements about men and women? In fact, they do. I’ve come with great regret to this conclusion.
– Doris Lessing, The New York Times, 25 July 1982
