Like Mother, Like Daughter: Stella Chestnut a Writer?

Molly Shannon is an actress who also became an author this year, thanks to the help of her kids, Nolan and Stella. Tilly the Trickster came out in September of this year, and is inspired by the bedtime stories she would make up on the spot for them. They also helped her choose the best illustrations for the book as it was being created.

Apparently Stella was so enthused by the process that she also "became inspired to write" and Mlle. Kiddie thinks she has the 'write' stuff! Mercury is in the sign of Virgo in Stella's natal chart, an indication of someone who thinks in an orderly way, and can do well with the skills needed to write a good story, such as the ability to organize one's thoughts and edit. It's also in a harmonious sextile with Saturn in Cancer, to help her to discipline her mind but bring in some of that Cancerian imagination.

Mercury is also in a square to Pluto, so Stella may have different stories to tell than the lighthearted tone that her mom's book title seems to suggest. Stella may find herself drawn to more intense and challenging subjects that aren't always easy to communicate. Regardless of the outcome, writing will probably be very cathartic for Stella!

Birth time and location for Stella is not publicly known, so a noon chart has been cast, with no interpretation offered on the potentially inaccurate components.
