  • Woody Allen – actors raining on his parade, finally

    1 Comment
         The lead actor in Woody Allen’s latest, as yet unreleased, movie Rainy Days has said in the light of the recent #metoo exposures, he is giving away his fee. Timothy Chalamet, best known for Homeland, said: “I don’t want to profit from my work on the film, and to that end, I am going to donate my entire salary to three charities: Time’s Up, the LGBT Centre in New York, and Rainn [the Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network].” Woody Allen was accused of sexual abuse by his adopted daughter Dylan Farrow, which were renewed in October 2017 when she wrote a piece in the Los Angeles Times titled “Why has the #MeToo revolution spared Woody Allen?”. He denies …Keep reading »
  • Dolores O’Riordan – a haunted Virgo

    3 Comments
        Dolores O’Riordan, the Irish singer with a haunting voice, often compared to Sinead O’Connor, has died in a London hotel aged 46. A smash hit in her native Ireland and the USA, at her height she sold 40 million records, duetted with Luciano Pavarotti and toured with REM and Oasis. But she found fame difficult to handle and was ultimately diagnosed with bi-polar disorder. Born 6 September 1971 near Limerick in Ireland, she was the youngest of nine children, brought up by a devout Catholic mother who imposed a strict religious upbringing, and was beaten at school by nuns. In later years she revealed that she had been sexually abused as a child, leading to anorexia, the overuse …Keep reading »
  • Keanu Reeves – another multiple Virgo with a zest for constant action

    1 Comment
        Keanu Reeve’s hugely successful franchise John Wick is to be turned into a Starz tv drama series, though he won’t be playing a leading role, being tied up in the mark 3 JW movie due out in 2019. Born 2 September 1964 5.41 am Beirut, Lebanon with an English mother and a father of Hawaiian-Chinese descent, who was imprisoned for dealing heroin, he had a fractured childhood moving round the world with a succession of stepfathers. In his adult life, a steady girlfriend gave birth to a stillborn baby and was killed herself later in a car accident, so he hasn’t had an easy  life , despite a run of smash-hit blockbusters including The Matrix. He has a Virgo Sun conjunct …Keep reading »
  • Michelle Williams – an undemanding Neptunian Virgo

    1 Comment
          Michelle Williams, the latest face of Hollywood unequal pay, has congratulated Mark Wahlberg for donating his $1.5 million fee for the re-shoot of All the Money in the World to the Time’s Up campaign in her name. She got 1% of his fee. Though what’s odd about that story is they have the same agent and often disparities are down to some actors having Rottweiler agents, while others don’t. The agent gets a cut so it’s to their benefit to bump fees up to maximum. Though clearly female actresses have always been undervalued. Born 9 September 1980 3.07am Kalispell, Montana, she says she was self-sufficient and secretive as a child, which suggests she didn’t ask for much …Keep reading »
  • Jeremy Corbyn – from irrelevance to power-broker

    7 Comments
          Jeremy Corbyn’s chart (UK opposition leader) is a mystery. I’ve been staring at it for weeks deciding whether there’s anything worth saying which is odd given that he is regularly touted now as a replacement for the feeble May. His Leadership chart, 24 September 2016 12.51pm Liverpool, makes more sense with a successful, lucky Sun Jupiter in the 10th which is moving to an exact conjunction this year – which all looks good for him, as the left are dominating all three of the Labour Party’s centres of power: the trade unions, the shadow cabinet in parliament and the national executive. He could be set to lead Britain’s most radical government ever. Where his leadership charts hits …Keep reading »
  • Joe Biden & Mitt Romney – here we go again

    9 Comments
          Joe Biden topped a recent poll for a possible Democratic candidate in the 2020 election, beating Sanders, Oprah and Warren. Long ways off, much water to flow under bridges before then. But a quick look suggests he has several influences in his favour then, and a few that aren’t. At the election he has tr Pluto opposition his Jupiter for a confidence boost; and tr Jupiter square his Pluto over the Inauguration plus tr Pluto trine his Jupiter/Pluto midpoint. If his birth time (from memory) is sound then the tr Jupiter Pluto conjunction will be around the trine to his MC at the election. What’s not so great is the tr Jupiter Pluto square his Mars/Neptune midpoint …Keep reading »
  • Liam Neeson steps into the #metoo firing line

    2 Comments
        Liam Neeson has stepped into the #metoo debate, suggesting there was a ‘bit of a witchhunt’ going on with some allegations being about ‘childhood stuff.’ Twitter has been fairly mixed in response with some outrage and some support for his honesty. In the past he’s generally been thought liberal, doing a film for Amnesty about the legalisation of abortion in Ireland and being pro-gun control. Born 7 June 1952 9.55pm (astrotheme) Ballymena, Ireland, he has a Gemini Sun Mercury on his Descendant conjunct Venus opposition a 12th house Sagittarius Moon; with his Sun trine Neptune (Saturn) in Libra trine an Aquarius North Node – restless, multi-talented, communicative and emotionally quite detached. His ambitious, ultra-determined Mars in Scorpio in …Keep reading »
  • Tunisia – an uncertain near future

    1 Comment
          Tunisia, which kick-started the Arab Spring and was the only and brightest hope emerging from the melee of 2011 is descending into violent unrest because of economic woes. The unity government of centrists, moderate Islamists and independents, was forced to push through austerity measures this year to meet the demands of foreign lenders including the IMF. Tourism has been hit because of terrorist attacks, the currency has fallen, inflation and unemployment are up. The governments since 2011 have made moves towards democratic reform but the underlying problems of poverty remain unsolved. A heavy-handed response to street demonstrations has seen 800 arrested which has only strengthened resistance to the government. Tunisia gained independence on 15 June 1956 at …Keep reading »
