  • Roy Moore – raising hypocrisy to stunning levels

    No Comments
         “I know Roy Moore. He’s always been a con artist” – is a headline in today’s Washington Post as the Republican candidate, Roy Moore, running for the Alabama Senator’s position in December faces multiple allegations of sexual misconduct, some against underage girls. (URL: He has been widely condemned by many top Republican politicians who say they believe the accusers stories over Moore’s denials and he should drop out of the Senate race. But he appears to have always run his battle-scarred career on Trump’s motto of never apologise and hit back harder. What’s worse he stands on a platform of religious sanctimony. And what’s even worse than that, local Alabama voters in goodly numbers support him, brushing …Keep reading »
  • Fight for the soul of Pluto in Capricorn – social media catch-22

    1 Comment
        Pondering on whether we are truly at a page-turning moment in history and where it fits the astrology, especially the momentous once-in-250-year Pluto in Capricorn, a thought suddenly struck me about where the world wide web fitted into all of this. Pluto in Capricorn’s thrust is to transform government (and finances) – collapse the old structures and hopefully (though not always) construct better in their place. Out of the creative and chaotic turmoil of the triple conjunction in Capricorn on the late 1980s/early 1990s, the internet was born which has consequences good and bad. On the upside, it has given ordinary people a voice; and activist groups are able to connect with others of like mind to build …Keep reading »
  • Cillian Murphy – murderous charm

    No Comments
          The inestimable Cillian Murphy is back in the fourth series of BBC TV’s Peaky Blinders, playing the gypsy gangster, Tommy Shelby, head of a Birmingham mafioso family with menacing charisma. The production has created its own sumptuously dark and corrupt world with dynastic anti-heroes at the heart of it. Murphy carries the series with a quiet, brooding and murderous presence. He’s had a sterling, award-strewn career since giving up his first love of music, appearing in all three of the Dark Night movies, most recently in Dunkirk and continued working on stage. Born 25 May 1976 in Cork (no birth time sadly) he is a Sun Gemini opposition filmic Neptune; and his Sun is trine Pluto, sextiling …Keep reading »
  • Edward V11 – another King in waiting

          Another Prince of Wales who had to wait to succeed was King Edward V11, who was 61 at his coronation. During the long reign of his mother Queen Victoria, he was largely excluded from political power, and came to personify the fashionable, leisured elite. He did fulfil ceremonial duties but his reputation as a playboy prince soured his relationship with his mother. After his accession his charm made him exceptionally popular. She was 82 when she died. Born 9 November 1841 10.48 am London, England his chart has certain similarities to Prince Charles’s. Both charts have Scorpio Suns, Jupiter in Sagittarius in hard aspect to Uranus, and Venus in Libra. Edward’s Sun was square Neptune, trine Uranus, …Keep reading »
  • #MeToo tsunami – Scorpio and the millenials

    1 Comment
          Why now? The outpouring of #metoo allegations of sexual abuse and harassment in the USA and UK feels like a game-changing moment, although it is in danger of saturating a public more inclined to look the other way.  It’ll only take a couple of false allegations to be exposed to run the risk of being swept back under the rug again. Scorpio will have a hand in it with tr Jupiter having moved into Scorpio, the sign that rules sexuality, almost to the day when the Harvey Weinstein allegations in the NY Times blew the lid off a very nasty can of worms. But Jupiter cycles back round into Scorpio every 12 years so there has to be …Keep reading »
  • Explorers and adventurers – not a practical bunch

    1 Comment
        Just a quickie on explorer adventurers. What is extraordinary looking at eight charts of the most famous modern and a couple of older ones is the absence of earth signs. Ranulph Fiennes, the transglobe explorer, 7 March 1944, has none at all – he’s a Pisces Sun, Mercury with five Air and three Fire planets.  Neither has Ben Fogle, Sun Scorpio with no Earth, 4 Air, 3 Fire, 3 Water. Aron Lee Ralston, is a Sun Uranus in Scorpio with only Venus in Virgo in Earth, 3 Water, 2 Air, 3 or 4 Fire. Tom Avery, is a Sun Sagittarius with only Mercury in Capricorn in Earth, four Fire, three Air. Bear Grylls, is a Sun Gemini with …Keep reading »
  • Serena Williams – blingy and high-tension wedding

    No Comments
         Serena Williams married Alexis Ohanian, the American-Armenian co-founder of Reddit, father of her baby, yesterday in the early evening in New Orleans. Who’d get married on a Mars Pluto square? Doesn’t augur well for the road ahead. The wedding was glitzy enough, indeed seriously overdone, in the style of superstar hitches as befits a frivolously indulgent Moon Jupiter Venus in Scorpio. Though the Sun quincunx Uranus hints at a degree of strain. And Mars square Pluto? Oof, angst, power-struggles, hostility down the road, never mind during the preparations of the week before. She’s a tennis superstar, 22 times Grand Slam winner, born 26 September 1981 8.28pm Saginaw, Michigan and he 24 April 1983 New York. From an earlier …Keep reading »
