  • Fort McMurray – a disastrous wipeout

    No Comments
    The catastrophic fire which has forced the evacuation of nearly 90,000 residents from Fort McMurray in Canada is expected to destroy most of the town. Fort McMurray is an oil town in Alberta which has grown rapidly from a village when it was first incorporated on 6 May 1947 to a city. The 1947 chart has a wide Fire Grand Trine (depending on start time), as befits an entrepreneurial place, of Saturn Pluto in Leo trine a Sagittarius Moon trine Venus (Mars) in Aries, formed into a Kite by Venus opposition Neptune. That focal point and driving planet Neptune is being seriously hampered and under great distress from a Solar Arc Saturn conjunction at the moment. Tr Uranus is square …Keep reading »
  • Donald Trump – the impossible just got real

    It’s certainly an epoch for rank outsiders to sail home as winners. Last July Donald Trump was given a 1% chance of getting the Republican nomination and here we are – the unthinkable has to be thought. The Daily Beast (admittedly biased) said he acted like a loser after the Indiana win, which cemented him as the GOP nominee, was announced. Even he didn’t expect to win when he set out and the question is – does he actually want it? He liked fighting as the outsider but having to act like a grown-up insider may be less palatable. May was always the month when it would start to get more edgy and erratic for him. He has tr Uranus …Keep reading »
  • Leicester Football Club – a Seabiscuit of a success

    1 Comment
    Well they’ve done it. To the hysteria of football fans across the UK, Leicester Football Club have become Premier League champions, the first major title in their 132 year history. When they started the season the odds of them winning were 5000-1 against. This post from Feb 2016: Leicester City Football Club (I am informed) has shot from obscurity into the top of the English Premiership. This happy change of fate may or may not having something to do with moving to new grounds or the even better karma of King Richard 111’s remains being dug up recently in a car park nearby. It was founded on 1 November 1884 making it Scorpio with an Aries Moon; and a Mutable …Keep reading »
  • BBC independence being threatened

    No Comments
    There’s yet another rumpus about possible political meddling in the BBC – in the scheduling of programmes as well as governance, with a white paper on the BBC Charter due this month. Even the revered Sir David Attenborough has voiced fears about tampering with the UK’s national treasure. The BBC, 14 Nov 1922 6pm London, is in an edgy year with tr Neptune moving through its 10th conjunct Uranus on and off till January 2017 which is highly strung and could well lead to inflated fears about loss of freedom. Plus tr Saturn is back for another square to that Uranus in August with tensions surfacing. Plus tr Pluto is square the 5th house Saturn till early this December which …Keep reading »

  • Jonathan Cainer – an exuberant Sagittarius

    No Comments
    Jonathan Cainer, the astrologer has died suddenly of a heart attack, the second attack within a year. He was best known in the UK for his Daily Mail columns and radio and TV appearances, but his columns also went right round the world to an estimated 12 million readers who loved his whimsical style of philosophising. Born 18 Dec 1957 8am in London he had a powerfully and successfully placed Jupiter in Libra on his midheaven which was on the focal point of a mini Grand Trine to a Sagittarius Sun on his Ascendant trine Pluto. His Pluto was also in an ultra-determined square to Mars in Scorpio with Moon also in Scorpio. He also had spiritual, creative Neptune in …Keep reading »
  • New Moon in Taurus – a Jupiter Pluto feast

    1 Comment
    There’s a New Moon in Taurus this Friday at 16 degrees Taurus which is in an Earth Grand Trine along with Mercury in Taurus trine Jupiter and North Node in Virgo trine Pluto – so at the very least it should give a confidence boost. Jupiter Pluto is known as having the ability to make thoughts things. So Jupiter produces the idealism, the vision and luck and Pluto gives the push to turn the idea into a tangible result. It forms into a Kite with a Jupiter opposition Neptune, making Neptune the driving planet – so maybe en epiphany of sorts, spiritual or creative. It won’t all be totally wonderful, of course, since Saturn is square the Jupiter opposition Neptune …Keep reading »
  • Lewis Hamilton – swamped Mars and Capricornian woes

    No Comments
    Lewis Hamilton, the Formula One driver isn’t having a great season (I am reliably informed by googling) with engine troubles and track mishaps, and now his second penalty. Born 7 January 1985, he has an ambitious and lucky Sun Jupiter in Capricorn opposition a Cancer Moon. Though his Sun has the tr Pluto conjunction exact at the moment and on and off till late 2017. So a pressured time in what is a highly pressured lifestyle. He’s also got Solar Arc Uranus conjunct his Sun this year which may also put him off his stride. Plus a disappointing tr Neptune conjunct his Mars until mid Feb 2017 – it’s that which is likely to be causing him most trouble since …Keep reading »
