  • Boris & Dom – an angry mix with a disregard for rules

    Dominic Cummings, Boris’s chief aide, is facing increasing calls even from senior Tories to quit after reports emerged that he drove 250 miles with his ill wife and son to relatives in the north during lockdown. His arrogant dismissal of criticism hasn’t done much to dispel the suspicion that the No 10 inner circle feel rules don’t apply to them. It’s one of the astrological mysteries of Boris that he and Cummings, his Svengali, are seemingly locked at the hip. Cummings is a self-righteous, dogmatic and suspicious Sun Neptune in Sagittarius opposition Saturn square an irritable, nervy, scattergun Mars in Pisces. All of which sits on top of Boris’s disorganized Saturn opposition Uranus Pluto square Mars in Gemini. DC’s Mars …Keep reading »

  • Warren Buffett – even brilliance erodes with age

    No Comments
      The name Warren Buffet is still synonymous with investment genius despite the fact that his picks in recent years have been lagging behind. One calculation put a $100 invested by his firm in 2014 being worth $112 today; whereas on the S&P 500 would be worth $154. But another reckoning was that $10,000 invested in 1964 in his Berkshire Hathaway stock, would now be worth circa $274 million by 2019, a compound annual return of 20% plus – double that of the standard stock market. But he is ninety years old and his partner Charlie Munger a whopping 96 so they might be forgiven for losing focus. Born 30 August 1930 Buffett is an intuitive Sun Neptune in Virgo …Keep reading »

  • Wilson Jerman – fated to walk a unique path

      Wilson Jerman, a poor North Carolina farmworker’s son, who became an indispensable and much-loved figure in the White House under eleven respective presidents, has died aged 91. He started during Dwight Eisenhower’s administration as a cleaner, was spotted later by Jackie Kennedy and promoted to butler. He had a close relationship with her according to his granddaughter: “She trusted him with her children, and he would ensure they had everything they needed in the White House.” When his wife was dying in 1966, President Lyndon B. Johnson flew his personal doctors to help treat her and sent lobsters and filet mignon from the White House kitchen. He was born January 21, 1929, in Seaboard, North Carolina and left school …Keep reading »
  • EU – unity or split: German leadership the key

      The jury is still out about whether the Merkel-Macron recovery fund of half a trillion euros will: a) be enough to make a difference: and b) will fly in the face of opposition from the ‘frugal four’ of the Netherlands, Austria, Sweden, Denmark who have all held out against direct subsidies. Never mind the German Constitutional Court, who have already made their displeasure known – see previous post May 6. Repayment would be the responsibility of the entire bloc but it would primarily benefit the poorer south. Though not oddly enough Italy who is a net contributor and would gain nothing from agreeing and their budget chief has described it as a ‘gimmick.’  Pro-EU optimists see it as a …Keep reading »

Born 17 February 1920 in Columbus, Ohio, no birth time, she was a Sun Aquarius with her Mercury in Pisces conjunct Uranus and opposition Saturn in Virgo and trine Pluto and Mars in Scorpio. So she had an overloaded and frustrated Water Grand Trine …Keep reading »
