Source Notes

Sy Scholfield quotes her in "It's vintage Maria at 75" by Luke Dennehy, Herald Sun (Melbourne, Vic.), 9 March 2016, p. 18: "I was born at 1.45am on March 7 and I'll stretch the party out until 1.45am."

Previously Scholfield calculated a chart with 4:55pm for mid-Leo rising; quoting from the autobiography "A Whole Load of Front" by Maria Venuti (Sydney: New Holland, 2011): "[My parents] were married [in Sydney] in 1940 . . . on 7 March the following year, I enter the story;" "I always had an idea of what I wanted and how to get it - that must have been my Leo rising."
