  • Jeff Sessions – in a banana republic presidency

    1 Comment
        “The most loyal dog in Trump’s kennel gets the most savage whipping.” That’s one comment from the Republican camp up in arms at Trump’s bileful public tantrum against Jeff Sessions, the Attorney General. He remains angry over Sessions’ decision in March to recuse himself from the investigation into alleged ties between Russia and the Trump campaign, which opened the way to special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into Trump’s family dealings and financial affairs. Sessions’ sin was not to understand that his loyalty lay to Trump not the rule of law or niceties of the constitution. Even far-righters like Newt Gingrich think Trump should shut up, pointing out that even the very pro-Trump Rudy Giuliani said he would have …Keep reading »
  • James Bond 25 – Barbara Broccoli & Daniel Craig

    No Comments
        James Bond 25 should release on November 9 2019, all going to plan, more or less on top of the Saturn Pluto conjunction in Capricorn, which doesn’t sound too upbeat. Maybe an escapist blockbuster will be what’s needed but the date itself isn’t too auspicious if they stick to it. Barbara Broccoli, daughter of the late Cubby, is behind the Bond movies, owns the company and has been producer on the most recent 8. Born 18 June 1960 9.55am Santa Monica, CA (astro com), she is an expansive, friendly Sun Venus in Gemini opposition Jupiter in Sagittarius in her ‘performing’ 5th house. Saturn in Capricorn is also in her 5th, a typical placing for organisational types in the …Keep reading »
  • Alexei Navalny – fiery Gemini leading the charge

    3 Comments
        Anti-corruption campaigner Alexei Navalny is the most prominent face of Russian opposition to Vladimir Putin. He is a lawyer turned campaigner who carries out investigations into the wealth of Putin’s inner circle. He emerged as the main opposition leader in the protests before the last presidential election in 2012. Observers say he has ‘remarkable political instincts and a powerful charismatic streak. His fiery cocktail of liberalism, nationalism and populism resonates with many.’ He has now been barred from standing in next year’s elections because he is currently serving a five-year suspended sentence for embezzlement. Last year the European Court of Human Rights quashed that verdict, saying Navalny and his former business partner did not have a fair trial; …Keep reading »
  • Justin Bieber – hitting the wall

    1 Comment
      Canadian singer Justin Bieber has cancelled the remaining dates of his Purpose World Tour because of “unforeseen circumstances”. He has performed more than 150 shows across the globe on the tour since March 2016, grossing $93 million for the first half of 2017. He apologised to fans who had booked 14 dates in Asia and North America, coming up over the next three months. He was born 1 March 1994 12.56am Stratford, Ontario (astrotheme) and is a Sun Venus in Pisces trine Jupiter in Scorpio.

  • Sergei Magnitsky – at the heart of the Russia affaire ** updated

    1 Comment
      The drip drip of toxic info keeps coming about the Trump dynasty’s Russia connection. This is just background about one, now deceased, piece of a jigsaw that is slowly coming together, involving Russian money-laundering through the New York property market and through the German Deustche Bank, already under investigation for same, whom certain Trumps had significant dealings with and loans therefrom. Sergei Magnitsky was a Russian lawyer/accountant, arrested after accusing Russian officials of tax fraud. He died a year later in custody after beatings in 2009. As a result of his death, the Magnitsky Act came into being which put banking restrictions on Russian officials implicated in human rights abuses. It’s those sanctions which Putin is keen/desperate to get …Keep reading »
  • Princess Diana – an awkward remembrance

    11 Comments
          Princess Diana is being thrust back into the spotlight in a documentary featuring Prince William and Harry baring their grief at her loss to mark the 20th anniversary of her death. While it is understandable they should want to remember her in the best possible light, doing so in such a public way does seem a tad insensitive given the damage she wreaked on Prince Charles and the monarchy. And their father doesn’t get a mention. Her Cancer Sun fell in each of their respective 7th houses, so she would feel like a partner – and especially for William with his New Moon in Cancer conjunct her Sun; Cancerian men always being mother-oriented. He also shares her …Keep reading »
  • Jacob Rees Mogg – a leader for a previous century

    1 Comment
      MP Jacob Rees Mogg’s name is being bandied about as a possible rival to David Davis for Theresa May’s job should he step down. It seems to be a surprise to him that he might be a consideration and indeed to the wider public who see him as a fuddy-duddy living in a time warp. Born 24 May 1969, he was Eton-educated, became a financier, is a practising Roman Catholic who voted against same-sex marriage, is for zero hours contracts, a Euro-sceptic who campaigned for Leave; and last but not least he extols the virtue of his nanny whom he took out canvassing with him and she looks after his six children as she did him as a child. …Keep reading »
