||'Golden Glamour Girl' Stephanie Rice has Neptune conjunct Australia's Sun|
With her world-record-breaking victory in the 400m individual medley at Beijing, Rice has secured Australia's 400th Summer Olympics medal. Her killer instinct in the pool comes from Mars (the competitor) in Pisces (The Fishes) on her North Node (the soul's purpose). Moreover, her Mars is ruled by Neptune (at 9° Capricorn in her chart) which is within one degree of Australia's Sun (at 10° Capricorn). Neptune is the planet most associated with glamour while the Sun is associated with all things gold, and so the photogenic Rice (a multi-talented Gemini) has been dubbed the country's 'new golden girl.'
