  • Jussie Smollett – Prince Will’s astro-twin

    1 Comment
         Jussie Smollett, a US actor best known for Empire, claimed he was the subject of a hate crime last month when two white men hurled racial and homophobic insults as they punched him, poured a chemical substance over him and put a rope around his neck. “This is Maga country,” he says they told him, referring to President Donald Trump’s Make America Great Again slogan. It now transpires that Chicago police who are investigating believe two Nigerian brothers who worked as extras on Empire were paid to stage the attack. Smollett through lawyers vehemently denies any involvement. It’s hardly a riveting story whichever it eventually falls out. But what’s interesting is that he was born (wiki) on the …Keep reading »

  • Katy Perry & Orlando Bloom – an intense match

    No Comments
              Another glitz and glitter moment as Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom announce their engagement after an on-off romance since 2016. She’s a singer/songwriter, one of the best-selling music artists of all time and he’s a mega successful actor – Lord of the Rings, the Hobbit, Pirates of the Caribbean. Her previous short-lived marriage to Russell Brand proved a disaster; and Bloom has also had a brief marriage. Katy Perry,  25 October 1984 7.58 am Santa Barbara, CA (astrotheme) grew up in a peripatetic and fairly poverty-stricken obsessively religious family and started in gospel singing. She has a heavy chart with an intense Sun Pluto in Scorpio in her 12th (time being accurate) and a downbeat Mercury, Saturn, …Keep reading »
  • India and Pakistan – tempers flaring

             India has threatened to ensure “complete isolation” of Pakistan after a suicide bomber killed 46 paramilitary police in Indian-administered Kashmir. Politicians claim to have “incontrovertible evidence” of Pakistan’s involvement but have not provided it. Customs duty has now been raised to 200% on all goods from across the border, an effective ban. It will hit Pakistan badly which is struggling economically and is only this week welcoming Mohammed bin Salman from Saudi Arabia with the hopes of attracting investment. There’s nothing too dramatic showing on the main charts though Pakistan does have tr Uranus moving into its 8th house of joint finances exactly now, starting a seven year phase of economic ups and downs.  Though there are fractious and …Keep reading »
  • Trump’s wall rabble rousers – Hannity and Miller

             Congress don’t want it, two thirds of voters in a poll are against it, the Republicans wish it would go away, illegal immigration has diminished over recent years and illegal drugs don’t come across the border but through ports. In the face of resistance and reality Trump sails full steam ahead, declaring a national emergency to railroad through his wall. It’ll run into myriad legal challenges and almost certainly won’t happen but then he’ll be able to blame the rest of the universe for him breaking his campaign promise. Sean Hannity, the Talk Show host on Fox News, has been egging him on of late which given the endless non-working hours he sits glued to the channel, …Keep reading »
  • Princess Diana – and her daughters-in-law

         The poignant absence of Princess Diana from her sons’ lives as they marry and have children always brings questions about how she would have related to their spouses. A Sun Cancer with an Aquarius Moon, she gave the impression of doting on her boys but could be fickle and emotionally unpredictable with friends. Her Moon opposition Uranus hinting at the loss of her own mother through divorce in her childhood would make her less trusting of women. She’d almost certainly have found Kate easier since Kate’s Cancer Moon and Jupiter in Scorpio chimed with Diana’s Sun; and Kate’s Mercury Venus in Aquarius would have resonated with Diana’s Jupiter. Meghan would have been more problematic with her Mars in …Keep reading »
  • Ryan Adams – less than a perfect gentleman

    No Comments
           Ryan Adams, one of the US’s most acclaimed singer-songwriters has been accused of unpleasant and manipulative behaviour towards women. Seven women, including his ex-wife, have asserted he dangled career opportunities in exchange for sex and if they didn’t let him have his way he allegedly harassed them. His ex-wife, actress and singer Mandy Moore says his ‘controlling behaviour’ blocked her from growing in the music industry. Born 5 November 1974 8.17 pm Jacksonville, North Carolina (astrotheme) he grew up in a dysfunctional family with his father abandoning ship early on and his grandparents stepping in to effectively raise him. He has an intensely emotional Scorpio Sun conjunct passionate Venus with Mars in ultra-determined and vengeful Scorpio close by. …Keep reading »
  • Olly Robbins – a Mars Uranus gaffe

           An astro-quickie on Olly Robbins, Theresa May’s favourite civil servant, who’s been spearheading the Brexit negotiations in Brussels. In an extraordinary lapse of judgement (or was it?) he gossiped about the UK government’s strategy over a late-night drink in a bar earlier this week and was overheard by the ITV journalist Angus Walker. He said the strategy was to force agreement of her unpopular and inadequate deal or face a long delay, since No Deal was effectively off the table. All since hotly denied. Two things are interesting about his chart. One is his Sun, almost certainly an Anaretic = last degree Aries. Theresa May herself has three planets in the final degree of a sign. The characteristics …Keep reading »
