  • Bob Iger + Disney – Neptune’s vision made real

    Bob Iger, one of Hollywood’s most powerful and stratospherically successful men is stepping down as CEO of Disney. In his fifteen-year tenure he has built up a powerhouse of franchises, acquiring Pixar, Marvel, Lucasfilm and the marquee assets of Rupert Murdoch’s 21st Century Fox; and recently set up the streaming platform WaltDisney+ to counter Netflix and others. Born 10 February 1951 in New York, he’s an enduring, controlling and super-ambitious Aquarius Sun opposition Pluto, trine Neptune. With his Neptune sextile Pluto inconjunct North Node Mars, Jupiter, Venus in Pisces – so the other face of creative, visionary Neptune. Not always riddled with sentimentality – viz Harvey Weinstein and Rupert Murdoch, both with Pisces Suns – but undoubtedly imaginative and can …Keep reading »
  • Katherine Johnson – a Neptune inspired maths genius

      Katherine Johnson, a trail-blazing mathematician, overcame racial and gender discrimination to become a kay part of Nasa’s space exploration programme. Her calculations, made with a slide rule and pencil, were critical to the missions which sent Apollo 11 to land on the moon and afterwards to see Neil Armstrong’s history-making moonwalk and return to Earth. Her story was told in the 2016 Hollywood film “Hidden Figures.” She has just died at 101. She was born 26 August 1918 in West Virginia with a farmer/lumberjack father and a teacher mother, was fascinated by numbers from an early age, and excelled at school and then college, despite the restrictions placed on African-American education. What’s fascinating about her chart is partly the …Keep reading »
  • Coronavirus – coping with dread ++ market meltdown ++

    Coronavirus has turned into a full-blown global panic as it spreads from the Far East into Europe and the USA. Despite the astrology being more similar to the Saturn Pluto 2003 SARS outbreak than the Saturn Neptune 1918 Spanish Flu outbreak, the numbers are veering alarmingly upwards. (See previous post January 25 2020). Apart from understandable personal fears, there is also an almost certain prospect of a ‘sudden stop’ financially as supply chains dry up and international travel is restricted. Several things make 2020 stand out as a more-than-usually difficult year. One is the Saturn Pluto conjunction in Capricorn which points to hardship, deprivation, financial restrictions. There was only one exact aspect, last month, but its’ sombre influence will be …Keep reading »
  • Harvey Weinstein – guilty of rape and criminal sexual assault

      Harvey Weinstein has been found guilty of rape in the third degree and criminal sexual assault, but cleared of the most serious charges of predatory sexual assault by a court in New York. The jury took a week to come to their decision. Their verdict on each charge had to be unanimous, or else a mistrial would be declared. He’ll remain remanded until March 11. Tr Saturn is almost exactly in a blocking square to his Solar Arc Midheaven, within a degree, suggesting his birth time of 9.45pm is reasonably sound. His Progressed Moon is also in a downbeat square to his Saturn exactly now. His bullying, control-freak Pluto on his Midheaven square Mars in Scorpio on his Ascendant …Keep reading »
  • Priti Patel – not winning the war of leaks

      Priti Patel, the UK Home Secretary, is knee-deep in rumours of spats with her senior civil servants with the Times reporting multiple Home Office sources accusing her of bullying, belittling officials and presiding over an “atmosphere of fear”. There has also been a leak (hotly denied) that MI5 has been keeping intelligence away from her. There was general surprise she wasn’t dumped at the recent reshuffle since she’s generally regarded as weak and not up to the role. Though it is a monstrous job in a dysfunctional department. Sim Jenkins writes in the Guardian: “Patel’s greatest fans would not laud her subtlety and sensitivity. A lack of experience and chequered ministerial career restored her to high office only because …Keep reading »

  • Prince Harry and Meghan – less majesty

      The battle Royal within the Windsors is getting tetchy with the Harry/Meghan camp suggesting the Queen doesn’t have jurisdiction over the word Royal when the edict that they have to drop their SussexRoyal branding was handed out. Normally dirty laundry is kept out of sight but it’s clearly not the Hollywood way with whining and puffing from the young couple that others in the family have earned money commercially while retaining their titles. Which is undoubtedly true but in their case was going to be so blatant that it clearly crossed a line that even the family-friendly Queen wasn’t going to accept. While Meghan will undoubtedly get the blame, Harry should know better, having been brought up to understand …Keep reading »
  • Roger Stone – gaming the system

      Roger Stone, longtime Trump associate, convicted last year on multiple counts of lying to congressional investigators and on a count of witness intimidation, was handed a 40 month prison term after scathing comments from the Judge. Four prosecutors resigned after the Department of Justice countermanded their request for a longer sentence. Stone’s lawyers moved to disqualify the judge in his case, claiming her remarks at his sentencing rendered her unable to fairly rule on his bid for a new trial. There is also a fair probability that Trump would pardon him. Justice in America! Stone isn’t looking remotely cheerful with a couple of Neptunian sinkers through this month and March, followed by a disastrous tr Uranus opposition his Mars/Saturn …Keep reading »
