One of our Los Angeles subscribers provided the data for a set of quintuplets born in Long Beach, CA on January 23, 1996. The babies were said to be the only healthy set of five born in the U.S. They were delivered by C-section, starting at 10:30 A.M. and all five had been taken from the mother within five minutes. There were two girls and three boys in the set. The first born was the largest, a girl who was able to go home from the hospital on February 13. I am including the chart for the first born in case readers in California want to watch it in the event of news about the babies. The family name is Shires, but I have no more information about the family at this time. The general emphasis on the transpersonal houses of the chart, from nine through twelve, suggests they will tend to lead public lives and be in the news. The chart shows the common freedom-closeness dilemma. The three freedom signs, Aries, Sagittarius, and Aquarius, are emphasized in addition to a dominant Uranus. But the babies also have factors in Libra and Scorpio and in the seventh house and eighth houses, a lunar node is on the Ascendant and Juno is on the Sun, all showing the desire for closeness. It is hard to imagine a quintuplet having much chance to be alone in the early years, so it will be interesting to see how they manage to develop their individuality. If any readers have additional information on them, I can include a note in a future issue of The Mutable Dilemma.
