  • China – life in the ancient dragon despite dire forecasts

    No Comments
           Predictions of a financial crash in China are, according to Forbes, a fantasy, at least for the time being. Economic commentators do appear to be worse gloom-merchants than astrologers. Catastrophe lurks round every corner. On the China chart there will be wobbles of financial uncertainty until tr Neptune clears the opposition to the 8th house Saturn this New Year; with more blips from tr Saturn square the 8th house Neptune through 2019 as well. But neither of those is earth-shattering. The imponderable is tr Pluto Saturn conjunct the 12th house Jupiter in 2019/2020. Tr Pluto should provide a boost, while Saturn does the opposite. So it may be stop-start or more likely a global Saturn Pluto recession will …Keep reading »
  • Italy moves to the hot seat – EU cash disaster in 2019

    1 Comment
           The economic panic button has moved off Turkey onto Italy with Claudio Borghi, the chairman of Italy’s budget committee, sounding doom over the European Central Bank’s intention to cease to be the lender-of-last resort by the end of this year.  He said, “The whole situation is unsustainable without an ECB guarantee, and the eurozone will collapse.” Any rescue thereafter would require the backing of the EU bail-out fund (ESM), under draconian terms, subject to a vote in the Bundestag, which would not be acceptable to the new coalition in Rome. At which point they could activate their idea of a parallel currency to subvert monetary union from within. Any move by the ECB to extend bond purchases into …Keep reading »
  • Pope Francis – a losing battle against sin in the Vatican

           The child abuse horrors just keep rolling in for Pope Francis and the Vatican, despite his resolute words at the start of his papacy. There’s a damning report from Pennsylvania about sexual abuse by priests, collusion, cover up and intimidation to silence victims; a police raid on episcopal offices in Chile; a conviction in Australia and a major court case against a Cardinal archbishop due in France next year again on cover-up charges. The post below was December 19 2017 and pretty much covers it. The Solar Arc Pluto square his Papacy Moon is almost exactly now. December 19 2017 post: Pope Francis, now 81, is approaching a fraught time in his papacy. On his election chart, 13 …Keep reading »
  • Omarosa and Trump – not much to choose between them

    1 Comment
           The slagging match between Trump and Omarosa Manigault has reached a new low with him referring to her as a ‘dog’ and a ‘crazed low life’ on a tweet. She claims there is a tape of him using the N-word; and her book Trump Unhinged has evoked a robust defence from the White House describing it as ‘riddled with lies.’ Born 5 February 1974 10.54pm Youngstown, Ohio, she’s had a gothic life with her father murdered when she was 7; her brother murdered seven years ago and her boyfriend dying of a heart attack when he was 55. She worked with the Clinton Administration and Al Gore and was described by staff as ‘disruptive’ and ‘the worst hire …Keep reading »
  • Princess Anne – a dedicated trouper

    1 Comment
           Princess Anne, the hardest working of the Royals although only 13th in the line of succession, is 68 today. She’s managed to keep her head down and keep herself and her children largely away from the spotlight. On her second marriage to Vice-Admiral Tim Laurence, she has four granddaughters. Born 15 August 1950 at 11.50 am London, she has a determined and ambitious 10th house Sun Pluto in Leo, so will be controlling, influential, designed for a life of public service being 10th house. She also has a hard-working, overly-conscientious, rather gloomy Moon, Mercury, Saturn in Virgo. Happily she has Jupiter in her 5th house which rules children and sport, both of which give her great pleasure, having …Keep reading »
  • Jeremy Corbyn – hates backing down

           Jeremy Corbyn has been on the receiving end of a string of media attacks for anti-Semitism in the Labour Party, his support over the years for terrorist leaders, and outraged headlines over his supposed commemoration of a Palestinian Black September leader (hotly denied). Whatever the absolute truth or otherwise of the accusations, he’s making a hotch of defending himself. He’s always been an odd figure as a contrarian MP since 1983, disregarding the party whip and going his own way for three decades plus before getting catapulted into the leadership almost by mistake. Born 26 May 1949 in Chippenham to peace-campaigning parents, he didn’t flourish at school and worked in trade unions before getting elected to Westminster. He’s …Keep reading »
  • Aretha Franklin – Young, Gifted and Black

         Aretha Franklin, the “Queen of Soul”, one of the best selling artists of all time, appears to be getting hospice care at home having been ill for a number of years, though she was still performing late last year. She was born 25 March 1942 10.30pm Memphis Tennessee to a well-known itinerant preacher father who was known for his “ million-dollar voice” and a musical mother. Her parents separated and her mother died when she was 10 at which point she started singing gospel and accompanied her father on his gospel-caravan tours, having many musical performers either caring for her, like Mahalia Jackson, or visiting their home. She had her first child at 12 by a school friend, …Keep reading »
