    No Comments
      Comedian Volodymyr Zelensky who won 70% of the vote in the recent Ukraine presidential election, despite having no previous experience, has been sworn in. He campaigned strongly against official corruption and said ending the conflict with Russian-backed rebels in the east since Moscow annexed Ukraine’s Crimea peninsula in 2014 would be his top priority. Russian state TV said no Russian official had been invited to the inauguration. Zelensky said Ukrainians must “become Swiss in our ability to live happily with each other, despite any differences” and for dialogue with Russia to start there must be a return of all Ukrainian prisoners.” He was born 25 January 1978 at 2pm Krivoj Rog, Ukraine and is a charming, maverick Sun Venus …Keep reading »
  • Heinz-Christian Strache – far right tripping up

      A corruption scandal involving Heinz-Christian Strache, Vice Chancellor of Austria, has led to a snap election being called for September. He was videoed along with a colleague from his far-right Freedom Party talking to a woman who claimed to be a wealthy Russian national looking to invest in Austria. She offered to buy a 50% stake in an Austrian newspaper and switch its editorial position to support their party. Strache said he wanted to “build a media landscape like [Victor] Orban”, a reference to Hungary’s authoritarian prime minister. In exchange he could award her public construction contracts. Strache, born 12 June 1969, maybe 5.45am Wien, Austria, has an ego-centric Gemini Sun on the point of a scattered Mutable T …Keep reading »

      Disgraced media mogul Conrad Black who was convicted of fraud and obstructing justice in 2007 and jailed for more than three years in the US has been granted a full pardon by Trump, about whom Black wrote a glowing biography last year.

Black born 25 August 1944 6.15 am Montreal has his Sun conjunct a lucky Jupiter in communicative Virgo which falls conjunct Trump’s Ascendant so he will …Keep reading »

    No Comments
      The Duke of Cambridge has said he felt “pain like no other pain” after the death of his mother, Princess Diana, during a BBC TV documentary about mental health. He said the “British stiff upper lip thing” had its place when times were hard, but people also needed “to be able to talk about our emotions because we’re not robots”. He was 15 when his mother was killed and having his Sun and Moon both in Cancer he would have been especially badly hit by her sudden death. He did have a catastrophic set of progressions at the time. His Secondary Progressed Mars was conjunct his Saturn exactly. And his Mars had moved by Solar Arc to conjunct his …Keep reading »

  • Lady Gabriella Windsor – a brainy Royal with an independent streak

        Lady Gabriella Windsor, the 38 year old daughter of Prince and Princess Michael of Kent, is marrying her long time beau financier Tom Kingston today at Windsor with the Queen in attendance.

Gabriella was born 23 April 1981 3pm London (newspaper report so presumably circa). She has a charming and indulgent Sun Venus …Keep reading »
