  • David Cameron – a puppet on Pluto in Capricorn’s string

    No Comments
           David Cameron opened Pandora’s Box with the Brexit referendum and then slunk away after it turned into a can of viperous worms. Looked at one way he was the unwitting agent for what had to happen, a necessary step along the way of dismantling the UK’s sclerotic political system. Not what he intended but he threw the firecracker and chaos followed. I was always puzzled by Cameron’s chart. 9 October 1966 5.30am London. The easy charm of Sun Venus in Libra and a self-satisfied Moon Jupiter in Leo; plus a flashy Mars in Leo in a showbizzy, loves-publicity square to Neptune – all make sense of what always seemed a lightweight, rather empty personality. But he also has …Keep reading »
  • Prince Philip – non-stop-go personality

           Prince Philip walked away from what could have been a nasty accident when he drove out of a side road and T-boned a car coming along the more major road. According to one report he said ‘the sun was in my eyes.’ His landrover overturned and he had to be extricated through the roof. The driver and passenger of the other car containing a baby were taken to hospital with minor injuries. He’ll be 98 this June and although retired from public duties continues to car and carriage (with ponies)  drive. Born 10 June 1921 21.46 hrs (unverified) Corfu, Greece, he’s an assertive, multi-tasking Sun Mars in Gemini in a hard-edged and short-tempered to Saturn in workaholic Virgo. …Keep reading »
  • Harris, Warren, Klobuchar, Gillibrand – testing the water for 2020

               Four more possibles for 2020 – Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren, Kirsten Gillibrand and Amy Klobuchar. California Senator and former state attorney Kamala Harris, born 20 October 1964 9.28pm Oakland, California, is picking up favourable media attention at the moment but there’s a troubling piece in the NY Times questioning her legend as a progressive, pointing out she did little to act for criminal justice reform and fought to uphold wrongful convictions that had been secured through official misconduct including evidence tampering, false testimony and the suppression of crucial information by prosecutors. (URL below) She has an entertainer’s, attention-seeking 5th house Libra Sun opposition an Aries Moon; with a Fixed Grand Cross of Saturn in Aquarius opposition Mars in Leo square …Keep reading »
  • Brexit – waiting for the light to turn on

             Wow. That was a defeat and a half. A loss by 230 votes kicks Theresa May’s deal into oblivion and the UK’s Brexit strategy into utter shambles territory. No one knows what comes next except that both May and Corbyn have so blotted their copy books that they have to go and sooner rather than later. May will probably win the immediate confidence vote with DUP help, since they dislike Corbyn’s united Ireland policies, but it doesn’t move the argument on. ‘Cometh the hour, cometh the man’ – hasn’t produced any obvious candidates to date though there is talk of cross-party seniors taking power back into the hands of parliament away from the government. The relationship chart between …Keep reading »
  • Jake Patterson – chillingly cold

    No Comments
           The kidnapping of 13 year old Jayme Closs, after the murder of her parents, was set in motion when Jake Patterson spotted her on a school bus as he drove behind. He then organised his crime meticulously, shaving his head to ensure there would be little forensic evidence left and shot them in front of her. It sounds unbelievable as well as psychopathic. He held her prisoner for three months in a cabin in Wisconsin woods until she was able to escape. Born 17 June 1997 (police) he’s a Sun Gemini in an impulsive square to Mars, North Node in Virgo and a confident trine to Jupiter in Aquarius. According to class mates he was very quiet in …Keep reading »
  • Carol Channing – unstoppable exuberance

    1 Comment
         Carol Channing, the larger than life, irrepressible comic Broadway star of “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes” and “Hello, Dolly!” has died aged 97. “She brought to the stage a beguiling energy, striking presence and a dazzling song-and-dance technique. Her frantic delivery, huge, saucer-shaped eyes and remorselessly wide grin came to epitomise Hollywood’s idea of the dizzy blonde.” (Telegraph). And she kept on going, appearing in a revival of “Hello, Dolly!” when she was 74 and ten years later she was a hit in cabaret act. Born 31 January 1921 9pm Seattle, Washington, she had an entertaining 5th house Sun in outrageous Aquarius (often a comedian’s sign) opposition musical Neptune. Her passionately enthusiastic Venus Mars in Pisces was on her Descendant, …Keep reading »

  • Tulsi Gabbard & Julian Castro – into the fray

             Two more democratic names into the 2020 ring. Of which Tulsi Gabbard, Congresswoman for Hawaii, has the most interesting astrology. She was pro-Bernie Sanders but has had a quixotic approach to foreign policy especially in the Middle East, and some pro-Israeli connections that may appeal to the far-right despite her leftish politics. Born 12 April 1981 in American Samoa, she’s a fiendishly ambitious Sun Mars in Aries opposition Pluto. It’ll be a punishing battle from now onwards with tr Pluto square her Mars and then her Sun/Mars midpoint bringing acute frustrations until just before the election. But at the election tr Jupiter Pluto are exactly square her Sun and Pluto which could bring a major boost. Plus she …Keep reading »
