Margaret Thatcher’s Handwriting

Recognized as a prime minister who transformed the face of Britain, Margaret Thatcher will be  remembered as one of the most important figures in modern British history.

After 11 years in power – and winning three elections, she had been  prime minister  longer than anyone else in the 20th century.

I love seeing what the “Iron Lady’s” handwriting reveals.  Margaret Thatcher had a reputation for being tough and sticking to her guns.
The handwriting  reveals the strength that comes from self discipline and focus.
Many breaks along the baseline, within the words, reveal an extremely developed “6th sense” or keen sense of intuitive perception.
Enormous sense of dedicated focus (small size of writing) and the bending of her will for improvement (mushroom shaped t crossings), the handwriting also reveals her huge dreams, goals and visioning for the future.  (The t crossings reach far into the sky, with nary a touch of connection to the t stem.)
Her very public image of strength and fortitude doesn’t mean that in the dark of the night or the private moments within her own Soul that she was immune from moments of feeling uncertain and downright cautious.   (Notice the long horizontal extension of the ending stroke in her first name in the first sample up above.)  Upon further investigation, the writing reveals she would channel those moments into creative tenacity.
Much like this picture I came across very recently.  Now I know why I saved it.  The picture is called “Tenacity”.
Thatcher’s writing reveals an instinctive, intuitive Lady – with a drive stemming from anger that she clearly used as fuel.
Some people call anger, potency.  I resemble that remark.  (*<*)
She was one determined woman.
In a presentation I gave last night, someone asked, “What does the reversed loop in her  letter f mean?”I”m glad you asked.

Someone from her past has disappointed her.  She turned her back from that person, shut the door…….and moved on.  Doesn’t mean she ever forgot about it.
While we’re at it……….notice the “g” in the word good that looks like a figure 8?  Prime (pun intended) example of one who possessed a natural talent when it came to thoughts, words and ideas flowing together with ease.
Give her elbow room or suffer the consequences.  For in the spaces, she could show up, powerfully.It brings to mind these words of  wisdom from the poet, Kahlil Gibran-  and I think the message is Universal, not just for Lovers.

“Let there be spaces in your togetherness, And let the winds of the heavens dance between you.  Love one another but make not a bond of love:  Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls.  Fill each other’s cup but drink not from one cup.  Give one another your break but eat not from the same loaf.  Sing and dance together and be joyous, but let each one of you be alone.  Even as the strings of a lute are alone though they quiver with the same music.  Give your hearts, but not into each other’s keeping.  For only the hand of Life can contain your hearts.  And stand together, yet not too near together:  For the pillars of the temple stand apart, And the oak, tree and the cypress grow not in each other’s shadow.”
