  • Jacinda Ardern – baby on board

    1 Comment
           Jacinda Ardern, PM of New Zealand, had her first baby today at 4.45pm in Auckland.  Her daughter is a last gasp Gemini Sun only a few hours away from being a Cancer. She has a 10th house Libra Moon so may well consider following her mother’s footsteps into some kind of public career. Though she’ll be rebellious and quite a maverick with Uranus in her performing 5th house square Venus North Node in Leo opposition Mars in Aquarius. She’ll be stubborn, very much a law-unto-herself romantically as well as in whatever way she chooses to present herself. Her Moon squares Saturn, indicative of an overly dutiful mother, and also trines Mars, so there will be some tantrums. Her …Keep reading »

  • Trump – a streak of cruelty in his character

           Trump is about to back away from his policy of separating children from immigrant parents, not out of sentiment but because the backlash from lawmakers, activists, religious leaders and former first ladies was too great. His Term chart does have an 8th house emotionally-damped-down Saturn in an unkind and can-be-downright-cruel square to Mars. The Term Scorpio Moon is exactly square the Mars/Saturn midpoint so women and children will come into the Mars Saturn line of fire. There’s also a focal point Pluto squaring onto Uranus and Jupiter, which is control-freaky, contemptuous of those deemed weaker or inferior (amongst other things). Trump’s Solar Arc Uranus is now exact exact on the conjunction to his Mars for another explosive scandal …Keep reading »
  • Kevin Spacey – creeping back into public view

    No Comments
           Kevin Spacey will be on show for the first time since allegations of his sexual misbehaviour got him fired from House of Cards and replaced in Ridley Scott’s All the Money in the World. The Billionaire Boys Club shot mainly in 2016 will go on limited release, presumably to recoup some cash with the Indie distributor Vertical Entertainment claiming the rest of the cast and crew shouldn’t be penalised because of Stacey. They are the company behind Travolta’s Gotti which recently scored a dire 0% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, so not their year. The Billionaire Boys Club is about a group of wealthy Los Angeles boys in 1980s and their get-rich-quick Ponzi scheme. Spacey’s character, an investor and …Keep reading »
  • Jerry Springer – sowing the seeds for mob rule

           The marathon that is the Jerry Springer Show is likely to be coming to an end after 27 years. A controversial show of  exploitation and moral panic, ‘a relentless orgy of humanity’s worst impulses’, ‘bear-baiting’ and ‘mob rule’ it lowered the tone of television and arguably set the stage for where we are now, politically and culturally. Springer, an ex-politician, always had a hankering after a serious reputation but gave in to the forces of commerce and kept it rolling. Born 13 February 1944 11.45pm London, he has a powerful, influential and angry chart so it clearly fed some of his baser instincts. He has a 4th house Aquarius Sun in a  confident opposition to a lucky 10th …Keep reading »
  • XXXTentacion – a wasted talent

    No Comments
         The successful rapper XXXTentacion has been shot dead aged 20 in Florida. Born 23 January 1998, as Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy, to Jamaican parents, he had a train-wreck of a life, stabbing a man when he was six to protect his mother, raised by a grandmother, was in constant fights with pupils at school, sent to juvenile detention for gun possession, swore off crime for music there, but was later arrested for robbery and assault with a deadly weapon. He was a rebellious and stubborn Sun Aquarius conjunct Uranus on the focal point of a mini-Grand Trine to a bleak Saturn in forced-to-be-self-reliant Aries trine Pluto (Moon) in Sagittarius; with an exuberant and might-makes-right Mars Jupiter in Aquarius. His …Keep reading »

    No Comments
         Actress Heather Locklear, best known for Dynasty, Melrose Place and Spin City, seems to be in trouble after a spate of drink, drug and domestic violence incidents and suicide threats. She’s now undergoing hospital care. Born 25 September 1961 5.40 pm Los Angeles, with an ex-army father, she has an unaspected 7th house Libra Sun which is a curious contradiction making her relationship-dependent, yet she acts like an island-under-herself and will be fairly self-centered. But what’s most notable is her Aries Moon opposition Mars in Libra square Saturn Jupiter in Capricorn – emotionally volatile with a short-fuse, constantly frustrated and feeling held back, tending to swing from optimism to pessimism. She does have Neptune in the 8th, common …Keep reading »

           The Spanish king’s brother-in-law, Iñaki Urdangarin, today starts a six-year sentence for fraud, tax evasion and embezzlement and siphoning off 6 million euros in public money. His wife Princess Cristina was cleared of helping her husband to evade taxes but will be fined €136,950 for civil liability damages.

Urdangarin born 15 January 1968, two weeks before King Felipe, is a Sun Capricorn opposition …Keep reading »
