    No Comments
        The upcoming late August Leo Solar Eclipse conjunct the Israel Mars is certainly making its influence felt as clashes break out at the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, revered by both Jews and Muslims as a holy site. Nearly 3000 Palestinians have been in clashes with Israeli forces, with 193 wounded. Tensions have soared since two Israeli policemen were killed last Friday. Haaretz, the liberal Tel Aviv newspaper said protests could turn into an intifada in the blink of an eye. An Eclipse conjunct Mars tends to produce a roar of anger and exacerbates any tendencies to fly off the handle or in an individual to do too much. It revs up the engine to overload. Trump has Mars hitting the Eclipse …Keep reading »

  • Princess Charlotte & Prince George – an extrovert and an introvert

          Princess Charlotte, all of two years old, has been delighting Europeans with her smiles and curtsies, as she steals the limelight on her parents’ state visit. Born 2 May 2015 8.34am London, she’s remarkably similar to Zara Phillips, Princess Anne’s daughter – both have a determined, stubborn and lively Sun Mars in Taurus; social-butterfly Venus in Gemini; and intense Libra Moon Pluto hard aspects.

  • OJ Simpson – a tricky transition

    1 Comment
      OJ Simpson, the former high-profile football star, has been granted early release from prison. He was given a nine-to-33-year sentence in 2008 on charges of assault, kidnapping, and armed burglary after attempting to steal pieces of his own sports memorabilia from a hotel room. This was 13 years after being acquitted in the murder of his ex-wife Nicole Brown and her friend Ron Goldman. His lawyers previously argued that his sentence was inordinately long; intended as a payback for his controversial 1995 acquittal instead of a punishment for his 2007 crime. He will be released as early as 1 October of this year. Born 9 July 1947 8.08 am San Francisco, he has a Water Grand Trine of Sun …Keep reading »
  • Olly Robbins, Mr Brexit – off to a shaky start

    1 Comment
          The voices of doom, gloom and apocalypse are being sounded in the media over the uncertain start to the Brexit negotiations with Barnier looking forbidding and Davis/Fox spouting their usual clap-happy platitudes. But it’s early days with much game-playing going on. No doubt it’ll come down to the wire after screaming fits, tantrums and flouncing exits along the way from both sides. The UK Mr Brexit spearheading the UK 90-strong negotiating team and Theresa May’s principal Europe adviser is civil servant Olly Robbins, 20 April 1975. He has been keen to play down ‘the political noise in Westminster’ and suggests only he and the prime minister should be listened to, thereby rather cutting David Davis out of …Keep reading »
  • Mitch McConnell – bruising defeat

    No Comments
      The failure to pass Trumpcare is being seen as a major humiliation for Mitch McConnell, the Senate Majority Leader. And it’s not at all clear where it goes from here, since the USA has found that they actually like health care being protected. McConnell, 20 February 1942, does have the upcoming Lunar eclipse conjunct his Mercury (opposition Pluto), which certainly fits with scattered arguments, barriers to agreements, high stress levels and the need for a serious re-think. The Leo Solar Eclipse is also square his Uranus which will also have thrown him off track. The rest of this year looks panicked, irritated and disappointing. It’ll be 2018 before he picks up a more confident tr Pluto square his Sun/Jupiter …Keep reading »
  • BBC – unequal opportunity employer

      Only one woman makes the top ten in fees paid to BBC actors, presenters, journalists and panellists, which has caused a raft of unwelcome headlines about gender imbalance for the corporation. The BBC were forced unwillingly to list the top salaries as part of their new 11-year royal charter, though it excludes those who are set up as independent production companies. The BBC chart does have tr Saturn wafting back and forth over the Virgo Moon this year and conjunct the Solar Arc Moon this December; with the Moon ruling the 2nd house of finances. So the lunar element is being firmly suppressed on the material level. And the Moon anyway isn’t well-integrated, only having one aspect of note – …Keep reading »
  • Trump and Bannon – a pact with the devil

    1 Comment
          “The most dangerous political operative in America” is how the author of the recently published book The Devil’s Bargain describes Steve Bannon, Trump’s chief strategist. “Trump wouldn’t be president if it weren’t for Bannon”. “As far as political reality goes, it’s Bannon’s movie we’re now in.” Bannon’s philosophy is apocalyptic, a world dominated by a fight between good and evil. He doesn’t see the world in terms of partisan politics as much as a cage-match clash of civilizations. Fuelled by anger, he talks in shock and awe terms, and constantly uses martial analogies. “Dick Cheney. Darth Vader. Satan. That’s power,” he told the Hollywood Reporter last year. Ever intent on destroying ‘the establishment’ whether in Hollywood where he failed to …Keep reading »
