  • Jessica Lange – a radiant and enduring Taurus

    1 Comment
      Jessica Lange, is an actress with a long and successful career, all the more notable in an industry which tends to discard women over 40. Recently she’s been in American Horror Story, winning awards for a stage performance of Long Day’s Journey into Night, and been acclaimed for her performance as Joan Crawford in the TV series Feud. Born 20 April 1946 11am Colquet, Minnesota, she had a peripatetic childhood with a travelling salesman father, studied photography in college, married a photographer, became a model and thence into acting. Like Jack Nicholson she has a 10th house Taurus Sun, in her case in a charming and creative conjunction to Venus Mercury, with ambitious Mars in Aries also in the …Keep reading »
  • Jack Nicholson – not olden, just golden

    1 Comment
      Jack Nicholson has just turned 80 and is to return to the big screen with his first movie in a decade, an English language remake of Toni Erdmann, which he approached Paramount to make since he loved the character. ‘A shambling, unshaven music teacher with a mop of gray hair and a prankish sense of humor, who carries a set of joke-shop fake teeth in his shirt pocket, and has a habit of disrupting the routines of everyday life with absurd and outrageous improvisations.’ Nicholson, born 22 April 1937 11am Neptune, New Jersey, has multiple awards for One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, Chinatown, The Shining, A Few Good Men, Terms of Endearment – and on and on throughout …Keep reading »
  • France elections – a sugar-coated empty shell versus the rottweiler right

    8 Comments
          Inexperienced, centrist Emmanuel Macron and right-wing  Marine Le Pen are through to the second round of the French election on May 7th. By all accounts, polls and bookies, Macron is a shoe-in. Apart from a waning Solar Arc Jupiter conjunct his Mars which has given him the impetus to rise out of obscurity to get this far, there’s not much else of note in his chart. What made me think he’d lose his mojo is tr Neptune opposition his Mars/Pluto which is running through into mid May. That can be cunning and deceitful but can also be fairly catastrophe-prone, which hasn’t been obvious so far. He’s also picking up tr Saturn square his Mars/Uranus which is accident …Keep reading »
  • Prince Andrew & Kylie – good tabloid fodder

    No Comments
        Prince Andrew, so reports go, is dating and consoling Kylie Minogue, after her split from her fiancé. Sounds like a celeb magazine fantasy but who knows? Maybe his nose is out of joint over Prince Harry’s showbiz significant other and thought he’d try some one-upmanship. He’s a Sun Pisces, Scorpio Moon with Venus Mars in Capricorn; while she is a Sun Moon Mars Venus in Gemini – so a chalk and cheese, Water Air mix. His Pluto squares her Venus Sun so there could be an attraction – with a degree of control and possessiveness on his side. Her Saturn in self-reliant Aries and MC square his Venus, which isn’t so great. Their relationship chart has a composite …Keep reading »
  • Iran elections – hoping for a reformist

    1 Comment
      Presidential elections in Iran will be held on May 19th with six candidates having been passed by the Guardian Council, who vet all applicants and refuse as suits them without explanation. None of the three likeliest have much showing on their charts (without birth times). Hassan Rouhani, present President and a reformist, is a Sun Scorpio square Pluto, with Jupiter in Sagittarius opposition Uranus. His Jupiter is conjunct the Iran 1 Feb 1979 9am chart MC and Venus, so would be a popular choice. And his Sun is conjunct the Iran 1979 Uranus, so could for reform. If he does get in, then he has a tough road ahead around 2019/2020. Ebrahim Raisi, 14 Dec 1960, a cleric, is …Keep reading »
  • Ilie Nastsase – Moon Mars in full flow

    No Comments
      Ilie Nastase, the Romanian former No 1 tennis player in the 1970s has been blotting his copybook with racist remarks about Serena Williams’ pregnancy and letting fly with expletives at the GB v Romania match, where he is Romanian captain, which saw him ordered off court. Born 19 July 1946 7am Bucharest, he’s got a volatile chart, especially where women are concerned, with an 8th house Pisces Moon opposition Mars in Virgo square Uranus – so tending to explode at the slightest trigger. Born five weeks after Donald Trump, he’s got a hates-failure Sun Saturn in Cancer square Jupiter; with an exuberant Jupiter trine Uranus, sexiling onto a Leo Ascendant. At the moment his Solar Arc Pluto is conjunct …Keep reading »
  • Solar Arcs – cometh the hour, cometh the man or woman

    6 Comments
             This is in no way definitive but a thought to ponder. Solar Arc Directions give a chart which indicates the stage of life an individual or country is at. Sometimes I’ve seen relationships where one person’s Solar Arcs had powerful cross overs with the other’s natal chart, which suggests a link which is significant for that phase of life but may not necessarily hang around for ever. I wondered if it would helpful in the chawsome business of political prediction. Taking Tony Blair as an example since he has an accurate birth time as has the UK. When he was elected in a landslide in May 1997 his Solar Arc MC was trine the UK natal …Keep reading »
