  • Michael Buble – son’s illness changed his priorities

    No Comments
         Canadian singer Michael Buble has announced he’s retiring from the music scene with one last album, having undergone a gruelling two years since his eldest son, now 5, was diagnosed with liver cancer. He said the experience has changed him and he wants out of celebrity narcissism. Born 9 September 1975 8.30 pm (astrotheme) Burnaby, Canada, into a Canadian-Italian-Croatian family, with a fisherman father, he has a hard-working 6th house Virgo Sun squaring onto a showbizzy Mars in Gemini opposition Neptune in the 8th. His upbeat Aries Ascendant has doubly enthusiastic Jupiter close by square Saturn in Cancer on the cusp of his 5th house of children (and performing) and trine Venus in Leo also in the 5th. …Keep reading »
  • Saudi Arabia – blindsided by a sandstorm

           Saudi Arabia is facing a full-scale crisis after the disappearance of exiled journalist Jamal Khashoggi, reportedly murdered in the Saudi Embassy in Istanbul with the Turks saying they have recordings of his death. There is mounting pressure on western governments to impose financial sanctions; and they as well as business leaders are pulling out of an investment conference in Riyadh later this month. Like most autocratic countries Saudi has a history of ‘disappearing’ dissidents though it appears to have worsened in recent times; with the reckless young Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (MbS), in charge of everything, wreaking havoc in the Yemen and stamping on critics, even within the Royal Family. Khashoggi didn’t seem to be an outright …Keep reading »
  • Kanye West – out-ranting Trump

           Kanye West managed to upstage Trump in an extraordinary Oval Office meeting where he let fly with wild statements in all directions and was roundly criticised for his over-the-top adulation of the president. West is in an overly excitable phase at the moment with tr Uranus conjunct his Mars Venus in Taurus, until early 2019, which will send him up like a rocket, bubbling over with enthusiasm. Though that’s running alongside an extended run of undermining Neptune hard aspects to his Mutable T Square of Sun Jupiter in Gemini opposition Neptune in Sagittarius square a Pisces Moon. Too much Mutable can be destabilising and tends to go off like a windmill in a storm. His Fixed T Square …Keep reading »
  • Bradley Cooper – lucky in talent, not in love

    No Comments
           Bradley Cooper’s directorial debut, the romantic musical A Star is Born, in which he also stars alongside Lady Gaga, has been getting superlative reviews and good box office. He’s had multiple nominations through a glittering and highly-paid career – Silver Linings Playbook, American Hustle and American Sniper – with a Tony nomination for his performance as the Elephant Man on Broadway. His emotional life has been more chequered with a six month marriage to Jennifer Esposito, other media-fodder liaisons, most recently with Russian model Irina Shayk with whom he has a young daughter. Early in his career he suffered from depression and substance abuse and is now teetotal. Born 5 January 1975 5.09 am Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, with a …Keep reading »

  • Princess Eugenie – a successful launch *update

           Princess Eugenie married her Jack at 11.10 am this morning in Windsor in a very attractive dress. This gives an affluent and successful/influential Pluto trine midheaven, sextile Jupiter. Though there’s also a pressured, trapped Sun square Pluto; and a volatile Uranus Mars North Node is tied into Mercury Venus in Scorpio. The day itself was guaranteed to be a strain since it involved such huge amount of organisation and exposure. But the wedding chart also gives a flavour of the marriage to come. What strikes me – not that I wish to rain on their happy if windy day –  is that Eugenie has Mars in Aquarius in her birth chart and it squares onto Jack’s Taurus Sun …Keep reading »
  • Florida – in the eye of various storms

    1 Comment
           Florida took the full brunt of Hurricane Michael, one of the strongest storms to ever hit the US mainland, ranked four on the five-step Saffir-Simpson scale and with a storm surge of 9ft (2.7m). Then state governor said it caused ‘unimaginable destruction.’ Entire oceanfront communities were virtually obliterated, an Air Force base suffered “catastrophic” damage and at least six people were killed. A volunteer rescuer said it looked ‘like a bomb dropped.’ It hit land at 2pm near Mexico Beach, Fl on Wednesday October 10th which oddly puts Venus Moon (and Mercury) in Scorpio on the midheaven though it is opposition Uranus and square a 1st house Mars in Aquarius. That follows on from the recent run of …Keep reading »
  • Gary Kurtz – the forgotten Stars Wars genius

    No Comments
           Gary Kurtz, producer and creative partner of George Lucas for the first two Stars Wars movies, has died. They didn’t always see eye to eye but Kurtz contributed significantly to the visuals, story and dialogue especially the concept of ‘the force’ stemming from Kurtz’s religious background. They were expecting only a modest success when Stars Wars launched and were astonished when it turned in three quarters of a billion dollars at the box office and spawned a franchise. Kurtz and Lucas were introduced out of film school by Francis Ford Coppola, and their first joint venture American Graffiti was a success. Born 27 July 1940 8.47 am Los Angeles, Kurtz had an extraordinarily Fixed chart with a Sun …Keep reading »
