  1. Hi Marjorie,

    In honor of this being the last week of Women’s HerStory Month, I was wondering if you wouldn’t mind doing a write up on human rights activist, feminist, UN Goodwill Ambassador, Nobel Peace Laureate, and genocide survivor Nadia Murad.

    Chapman University reported yesterday (March 22) that Nadia Murad has just been appointed as Chapman University Presidential Fellow. She will be the main speaker at the 2022 Chapman University Commencement ceremony.

    Nadia Murad is a huge inspiration to me – I read her autobiography / memoir earlier this year, The Last Girl: My Story of Captivity, and My Fight Against the Islamic State. It was a very informative book and she shares the trauma and anguish she managed to overcome during the time of ISIS.

    Nadia Murad, is an Yazidi (a ethno-religious group closely related to the Kurds) from the Sinjar Region of Iraq and she managed to survive the brutal ISIS invasion that ripped through her Yazidi community in August 2014. ISIS deliberately targeted the Yazidis for genocide – killing between 5,000 and 12,000 ethnic Yazidis near Sinjar and forcing over 6,500 ethnic Yazidi girls and some Yazidi boys into slavery.

    Murad’s parents were murdered and so were 6 of her brothers and stepbrothers. Murad was sold to an ISIS fighter where she was sexually, physically, and emotionally abused before managing to escape. Today, she lives in Germany where she is now married to a fellow ethic Yazidi and where she works as activist demanding justice for Yazidi girls, women, and families who suffered under ISIS. She also speaks out against the mistreatment of girls, women, and other groups who’ve been victims of war, oppression, and genocide.

    All in all, I truly admire Nadia Murad for the work she’s doing. I can’t begin to imagine how difficult it must have been for her to turn her anguish into action. Murad even recently spoke out against the invasion of Ukraine and she expressed her support for the Ukrainian people (she actually LIVED their experience) and she’s been speaking out against all of the other horrible atrocities taking place in the world.

    Anyway, any astrological thoughts or insights you could share would be greatly appreciated.

    I did some searching, and I was able to find Nadia Murad’s birth date and birth year….but I couldn’t find a birth time for her. According to Nadia Murad’s official Twitter page, she lists her date of birth as “March 10” and her Wikipedia page lists her birth year as “1993”

    Also, Nadia Murad was born in the small village of Kocho in the Sinjar District of Iraq.

  2. A comment rather than a request. I just came across a piece about the marriage between Putin and his ex-wife Luydmila. Apparently he couldn’t stand her “obsession” with astrology. And she once said of him, “my husband is a vampire, but he’s the one for me!”. Very revealing. All the more reason to be wary of his official birth data.

  3. Hi Marjorie,
    With all that is going on in Eastern Europe was wondering how do you think
    the UK Banks are?
    Thank you if you comment, pretty sure you wrote about them all along
    with Lloyds of London a few years ago but can’t find article, hence question!
    And thank you if you comment.

  4. Hello Marjorie – what do you think about charts for the equinoxes and solstices? Are they helpful in looking at the coming season? I’ve read somewhere that the Spring Equinox is the most important one. But I don’t know!

    Yesterday’s Spring Equinox for the UK has Mercury conjunct Jupiter with Neptune in Pisces in, I think, it’s 7th house – is that over-optimistic for the UK’s alliances? There’s also the Mars/Uranus square, maybe more disruption and violence, although I’m praying for sudden changes of the more constructive kind…..perhaps the Nodes at the MC are a hopeful sign of helpful alliances and being able to help others?

  5. Forgive me if you’ve discussed Covid previously (recently), but any indications on what 2022 could be like, astrologically, for the virus? Thank you.

  6. CNN offered five names that Trump might select as his running mate:

    Ron DeSantis, Nikki Haley, Tim Scott, Glann Youngkin, and Ted Cruz.

    The next rat race has begun. Who will Survive? Thank you.

  7. Marjorie,

    Last week the Japanese “Killing Stone” – Sessho-seki broke into two pieces. (Guardian story here: https://www.theguardian.com/world/2022/mar/07/japans-killing-stone-splits-in-two-releasing-superstitions-and-toxic-gases). The legend carries superstition about an evil spirit held within the stone that has now been “released”.

    At the time of writing just over a week later, an earthquake of magnitude 7.4 has just hit Japan. Do Japan’s charts show bad times ahead which would tie in with these events?

    Many Thanks

    • See post Nov 4 2021. The country is in for a major panic from late May onwards as tr Neptune is conjunct the Mars – and that’s the start of a tricky three years ahead. Though they are not alone in that.

  8. I am curious about the various dates you use for charts of Russia. I can understand that 8 November 1917 is significant, but you also use 12 June 1990. That was the date of Russia’s Declaration of Sovereignty (note, not independence), which although of symbolic importance still maintained that Russia would be part of the USSR. You have also used 8 December 1991. I’m not sure what that date signifies – is it the change of name from RSFSR to Russia? But perhaps you might also consider trying midnight Moscow time of 31 December 1991, as that is when the USSR is generally deemed to have dissolved, leaving the various “newly independent states”?
