Source Notes

Church of Light quotes Reville in Predict6ions, 1/68. Ruth Dewey quotes The Compleat Astrologer for a chart with MC 25 Scorpio = 00:50 AM GWT. PC quotes both sources for 2:30 AM. Old-file has 1:15 AM. Dana Holliday spoke to Fontyn at a dinner party and Dame Margot said she did not know her time of birth. Fowler's gives 2:15 AM as "approximate time from her, accuracy uncertain." In May 2008, Shelley Jordan writes, "In her biography "Margot Fonteyn", page 9 (Viking, 2004), Meredith Daneman states that Margot was born between 4 and 5 AM, on May 18, 1919. Numerous sources agree that she was born in Reigate, England. The author does not give a source for the birth information. This is

considered the authoritative biography of the ballerina, and was based on Margot's mother's unpublished autobiography and

conversations with Margot herself."
