  • Ukraine election – satire wins the day

    No Comments
         Volodymyr Zelensky, a Ukrainian comedian whose only political experience comes from starring in a satirical television series Servant of the People, in which his character accidentally becomes Ukrainian president, has won the election by a landslide. He is a millionaire with 4.2 million Instagram followers. His campaigning was light on policy but he won on an anti-corruption, not-the-old-guard platform. Critics have expressed doubts that he will be able to take on the country’s influential oligarchs and stand up to Russian President Vladimir Putin. Putin to date has refused to congratulate him on his victory. Born 25 January 1978 he’s a Sun Venus in Aquarius opposition Mars in Leo, so lively, charming and energetic.  He’s an odd mix with …Keep reading »
  • Sri Lanka bombings – deadly Lunar Eclipse

               Nearly 300 are dead with 500 injured in the wave of bombings in Sri Lanka yesterday which were targeted at Easter Christian Church services and luxury hotels. A local Islamist terrorist group is being blamed but no one has claimed credit yet. Sri Lanka is predominantly a Buddhist country which fought a 26 year civil war ending in 2009 with the predominantly Hindu Tamils. Both Muslims and Christians are minorities and have been subject to persecution by militant Buddhists. See URL below. The bombings occurred when the bleak, war-like Saturn Pluto conjunction was close, though it doesn’t reach exact until early January 2020; and was opposition the Cancer North Node.  The disruptive, rebellious Sun Uranus in Taurus was …Keep reading »
  • Mel Brooks – not always a laugh

           Comedians are notoriously tortured souls and Mel Brooks – a brilliant and successful filmmaker, comedian, composer, actor – Blazing Saddles, Robin Hood: Men in Tights etc – is no exception. A biography just out by Patrick McGilligan according to the Times review is “is a damning chronicle of narcissism, mental cruelty, prejudice, treachery, moral bankruptcy, financial impropriety and chronic shouting.” Brooks harboured insecurities, especially self-loathing and fury at the world, partly due to his father dying when he was two and learned to survive by making people laugh. But without an audience he evidently became sullen, passive aggressive and worse. When his pregnant first wife, who bore him three children, attended the premiere of one of his musicals she …Keep reading »
  • Prince Harry and Meghan – a possible Africa idyll

           Prince Harry and Meghan may move abroad after the birth of their baby, perhaps to Africa to combine their Commonwealth role along with charity work for two or thee years. Harry has links with several African countries including Lesotho, Botswana and Malawi; and Meghan has charity connections out there also.  It’s normal practice for young married Royals to have several years in semi-obscurity to settle into a personal life before embarking on a gruelling round of public duties. The Queen and Prince Philip spent years in Malta; William and Kate disappeared off to Wales while he undertook his search and rescue work. Meghan’s chart relocated to Africa has Venus on the Midheaven through eastern Africa and her Sun …Keep reading »

  • Adele – setting fire to the rain

    No Comments
           Adele has split from her financier husband Simon Konecki. They’d been together since 2011, had a baby a year later but only married in 2016. According to reports they had been living separately for some time. She was born 5 May 1988 at 8.19 am London and has a friendly 11th house Sun Jupiter in Taurus. But she also has the unpredictable and changeable triple conjunction of Uranus, Saturn, Neptune in Capricorn straddling her Descendant which rules close relationships. Her Uranus is also conjunct her Sagittarius Moon so magnifying her tendency not to stand still in relationships.  Her 12th house Venus in light-hearted Gemini also opposes her Moon, Uranus and Saturn – so she’s emotionally fairly fickle. Simon …Keep reading »
  • David & Louise Turpin – an unthinkable folie a deux

    No Comments
           A truly depressing tale has ended up with life sentences in California for parents David and Louise Turpin for starving and torturing all but one of their 12 children. They were chained to their beds, severely under nourished, were taken occasionally to Disneyland but were only allowed to shower once a year and had never seen a dentist or a doctor. It’s a bizarre story with few sensible explanations as to why they behaved as they did. David Turpin, 17 October 1961, is a Sun Libra in a wobbly up and down square to Saturn Jupiter in Capricorn with a Capricorn/Aquarius Moon. He does have a can-be unpleasant Mars, Neptune, Mercury in Scorpio sextile Pluto, which suggests a …Keep reading »
