Actresses Felicity Huffman (Desperate Housewives) and Lori Loughlin (Full House), along with 50 others, many of them celebrities or CEOs of major companies, have been accused of paying massive bribes to get their children into America’s top colleges. They have been released on bail.
Felicity Huffman, 9 December 1962,is a Sun Sagittarius with a pushily confident and risk-taking Jupiter opposition Pluto Uranus; and a flamboyant Mars in Leo with a determined Venus Neptune in Scorpio square Saturn in Aquarius and a Taurus Moon. Tr Neptune is squaring her Sun now and that runs on into early 2020. She’s also got a scary/trapped tr Pluto square her Sun/Mars midpoint running through this year.
Her husband William Macy (Shameless TV series), who hasn’t been charged, 13 March 1950, is a downbeat Sun Pisces opposition Saturn in Virgo and has tr Neptune opposing his Saturn this year and squaring the Sun/Saturn midpoint into 2020 for a longish phase of uncertainty and worry. His relationship chart with Felicity looks more than edgy this year into next with tr Uranus elbowing the composite Sun opposition Uranus square Neptune.
Lori Loughlin, 28 July 1964, is a Sun Leo with Jupiter in indulgent Taurus in a head-in-the-clouds opposition to Neptune. Tr Uranus is squaring her Sun from June onwards and before then she has a series of disaster-prone Uranus hard aspects to three different Mars midpoints, running on and off into 2020. So a fairly catastrophic year for her.
Her daughter Olivia Jade, 28 September 1999, at college since last autumn, is a social media influencer with close to two million YouTube subscribers and over a million Instagram followers. She’s a Sun Libra trine Neptune and Uranus in Aquarius, sextile Pluto – super-ambitious and highly strung. She’s also got an ultra-determined Plus Mars in Sagittarius; a flashy Venus in Leo; and a can-be autocratic Saturn in money-minded Taurus square Uranus; plus an indulgent Jupiter in Taurus. She looks seriously deflated now with tr Neptune square her Mars.
The children are not involved in the criminal proceedings but it isn’t clear whether their position at college will be affected. Clearly her social influencing will take a nosedive.
The mastermind behind it all is Rick Singer, 18 September 1960, who has pleaded guilty to federal criminal charges including money laundering, racketeering, obstruction of justice and tax evasion in connection with the $25 million scheme to help parents fraudulently game the college admissions system.
He has a Virgo Sun on the focal point of a T Square to an opportunistic Jupiter opposition Mars in Gemini. Mars Jupiter in hard aspect can be self-interested, described by Sakoian & Acker as a soldier of fortune. ‘In extreme cases avarice and dishonesty occur.’ A Mutable focal point Sun will be ego-centric, can be conceited and know-it-all, headstrong. His Jupiter in crusading Sagittarius is also in an adventurous trine to Uranus, sextile a charming and sociable Venus in Libra. Well designed as a conman.
He’s also got a tough-minded Saturn in Capricorn trine Pluto, sextile Neptune.
