  • Temple Grandin & Susan Boyle – Autism and Aspbergers

    4 Comments
           Astrology isn’t always a helpful diagnostic tool when it comes to labelling psychological conditions, since it works within its own framework. But it can track similarities between the charts of known sufferers, bearing in mind that the chart influences can manifest in different ways in different individuals depending on life circumstances and other variables. One of the best known high functioning autistics is  Temple Grandin, a Doctor in Animal Science, consultant to the livestock industry in animal welfare and a spokesperson for autism. She was born on 29 Aug 1947 at 2.30pm Boston, MA, USA so is a 9th house Sun in Virgo conjunct Venus, Mercury which fits with high education and communication. She also has serious Saturn …Keep reading »
  • Stacey Abrams – maybe about to make history

    1 Comment
         Stacey Abrams made history Tuesday night by being the nation’s first black woman nominated for governor by a major political party, the Democrats in Georgia. She won by huge margins, all the more surprising since Georgia was once known as all white. At this stage she’s still the underdog, but if she does win in November, she would be the first woman as well as the first African American elected governor of Georgia, and the first black woman to govern any state in the US. Born 9 December 1973, she is a fiery Sun Sagittarius widely trine Mars in pro-active Aries, so definitely willing to have a go. She has a tough-minded Saturn square Pluto and sextile Mars, …Keep reading »
  • Philip Roth – ‘life in all its shameless impurity’

    No Comments
           Philip Roth, who has just died, became known as one of the best writers of the 20th Century, after a controversial early novel Portnoy’s Complaint. It saw him labelled as a Jewish anti-Semite and literature’s dirtiest old man. A recent novel American Pastoral won the Pulitzer. He saw himself as a chronicler of American life in ‘all its shameless impurity.’ Born 19 March 1933 1am Newark New Jersey, he spent most of his life as an academic and writer after a stint in the army. He was married twice, latterly to actress Clare Bloom. He had a 3rd house Sun Venus in Pisces and Mercury in Aries – quick-witted, intelligent, a good communicator; with Mars Neptune Jupiter in …Keep reading »
  • Anthony Hopkins – brilliant and flawed * updated

    4 Comments
           Anthony Hopkins, a towering talent but like many actors not an entirely together human being, has been baldly saying he doesn’t know and doesn’t care if he has a grandchild. When told he sounded rather cold, Hopkins replied: “Well, it is cold. Because life is cold.” While in the throes of alcoholism, he abandoned his first wife and only daughter Abigail as a toddler, and his fractured relationship with her sent her into a drug spiral and nervous breakdown in her late teens. They got together briefly in the 1990s but he hasn’t had contact with her in almost two decades. Born 31 December 1937 9.15am (from memory) Port Talbot, Wales, he was hopeless at school and bullied, …Keep reading »

  • Lady Kitty Spencer – sophisticated and focused

    1 Comment
         Lady Kitty Spencer was a fashion highlight at the Royal wedding with her similarity to her late aunt Princess Diana much remarked on. She was born 28 December 1990 in England, daughter of the now Earl Spencer and his first wife Victoria and moved to South Africa as a five year old with her parents splitting acrimoniously soon after. She studied psychology, politics and English literature in Cape Town; and in London earned a master’s degree in Luxury Brand Management from Regent’s University. (!?!) She is now a model, has been on several Tatler covers; and  helps with a military charity Give Us Time; and  Centrepoint for homeless youth of which Prince William is patron. She has some …Keep reading »
  • Hugh Grant – dilly dallying to the altar

    No Comments
         High Grant is to marry for the first time to the mother of his three children, Swedish Anna Eberstein. Born 9 September 1960, London with an unverified time of 7.30am, into a family described as “a colourful Anglo-Scottish tapestry of warriors, empire-builders and aristocracy” he has his Sun, Pluto and Mercury all in Virgo. It’s a tougher and more physical chart than his laid-back appearance and rom-com acting style might suggest. He has an Earth Grand Trine of Pluto trine an 8th house Taurus Moon trine Saturn in Capricorn – a Taurus Moon is certainly indulgent though Saturn Pluto is bleak. What relieves the heaviness of it is a Moon opposition Neptune and Neptune also on the focal …Keep reading »
  • Jeremy Thorpe – A Very English Scandal

    1 Comment
            High farce and conspiracy to murder combine in the truth-stranger-than-fiction tale of Liberal MP Jeremy Thorpe, who almost became Deputy UK PM in 1974, with his attempt to silence his erstwhile homosexual lover, Norman Scott, at a time when such liaisons were still illegal. He assembled a hapless crew of helpers to handle blackmail claims and finally do the dirty deed with the only death being his lover’s dog. Thence to a luridly public trial, where almost everyone appears to have lied on both sides of the case; with a notoriously biased summing up by the judge. Thorpe was acquitted, though his career was ruined; while Scott, who was a fantasist but seems to have been correct …Keep reading »
