  • Christopher Plummer – a fiery Sagittarius sprints to the rescue

    1 Comment
        Veteran actor Christopher Plummer who stepped in as a hasty replacement for a disgraced Kevin Spacey to play J Paul Getty  has been nominated in the Golden Globes for best supporting actor for his performance in Ridley Scott’s All the Money in the World. Scott is also nominated for best director and Michelle Williams for best actress. It had finished shooting when he took over the role and isn’t yet released. Born 13 December 1929 in Toronto, Canada, he’s had an illustrious career in serious theatre and in film, garnering him many awards, including the Sound of Music (which he loathed). He has a lively Sun Mars in Sagittarius with Venus also in Sagittarius in a charming opposition …Keep reading »
  • Palestine – putting pragmatism before ideals, for now

    No Comments
          Another intifada in Palestine over Trump’s unthinkable and almost certainly un-thought-through proclamation of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital seems unlikely at present. Those on the inside say that: Gaza is hopeful of an easing of the siege imposed by Israel and Egypt, which will bring a much-needed boost to the local economy. The West Bank wants to maintain security coordination with Israel, which helps keep Hamas out and President Abbas in control. At least half the families in the West Bank are reliant in some way on the Israeli economy. There is plenty of Palestinian despair and anger at lack of any prospect of an end to the occupation. But there is also a war-weariness and the necessity of …Keep reading »

  • Mark Hamill – propelled to great heights by Mars Pluto

    1 Comment
          Mark Hamill is back as Luke Skywalker. The new Star Wars, The Last Jedi, has just premiered in Los Angeles with murmurs of good reviews coming. Born 25 September 1951 2.43pm Oakland, California, into a naval family which moved constantly during his childhood, he is one of seven children. In his early 20s he worked in TV dramas and then aged 24 landed the role in Star Wars since Lucas preferred young actors without too much experience. He has a serious Libra Sun Saturn in his well-read and well-travelled 9th house along with Neptune and Mercury in Virgo. And has a megaton Mars Pluto in Leo in his intense 8th house as well as Venus. Many film …Keep reading »
  • Ewan Cameron & MK-Ultra – Jupiter Saturn in Capricorn

    1 Comment
         One of the CIA’s more damaging and hair-brained schemes in the 1950s/60s was master-minded by a Scots-born psychiatrist Ewan Cameron, who was born under a Jupiter Saturn conjunction in Capricorn, as we have coming up in 2020. MK-Ultra was a CIA Mind Control programme which illegally tested drugs, electro-shocks and other brutal methods on unwitting mental patients to enhance interrogation and torture techniques; and may also have been directed to producing a ‘Manchurian Candidate’ – an artificially created multiple personality disorder – the end result being a spy capable of hiding secrets in a split-off part of their mind which would not be retrievable except by a trigger code under hypnosis. Netflix have been reviving interest with their …Keep reading »
  • JK Rowling & Johnny Depp – fans in a flurry

    3 Comments
           JK Rowling has attracted a twitter storm with her statement explaining why Johnny Depp has remained in the title role of the new film, The Crimes of Grindelwald, after he was accused of domestic abuse by his ex-wife Amber Heard. Part of the billion-pound Harry Potter franchise, the film is set to be a huge box-office success. She said the terms of his divorce were kept private by both sides and she felt that should be respected. Normally outspoken on social issues, she’s clearly been caught in a tight spot, which is always the case when there’s a personal friendship – and money – involved. On the face of it, their chemistry is not that easy with his volatile Uranus Mars …Keep reading »
  • Jack Kennedy – never say die

    No Comments
         Just a quickie on a rising superstar in Irish steeplechasing, teenage jockey Jack Kennedy. Yesterday at Clonmel in a novice chase, he was nearly unseated at the fourth jump, turned upside down and back to front, and managed to haul himself back in the saddle – and then proceeded to win. Born 22 April 1999, his chart is a wonderful mix of supremely confident with Jupiter in Aries trine Pluto and sextile Uranus; and grimly determined from a Taurus Sun Saturn opposition Mars in Scorpio squaring onto Neptune. By the seat of his pants and the skin of his teeth – his lucky Jupiter fished him out of trouble.  Lester Piggott, the flat jockey supremo also had a …Keep reading »
  • Elton and Mum – two stubborn Moons

    No Comments
            Elton John’s mother has died, happily just reconciled to her son after a seven-year feud. She had refused to drop old friends with whom he’d fallen out, and said “I’m not a person to be controlled or told what to do.” As a result of their estrangement Elton did not attend the funeral of his stepfather in 2010, of whom he had previously been fond. His mother was exceptionally supportive of his early musical career and accepting when he came out as gay. Sheila Farebrother was born 25 March 1925 to a mother born in the workhouse and her father was a WW1 veteran and groundsman. She was a rebellious Sun Uranus in Pisces sextile a determined …Keep reading »
