Pallas and John Travolta news

Homosexuality is not what it used to be.  Half a century ago, gay men and women hid their affiliation in a closely guarded cloak of secrecy.  In today’s Aquarian world where even in the US twenty states plus the District of Columbia now permit gay marriage, more and more well-known people are coming out of the closet, including even football players. But not John Travolta or Tom Cruise.  Both of these men, both Scientologists, interestingly enough, have struggled through their entire careers to keep the G word from erupting into their […]

The Uranian world of Henry Miller

tropic-of-cancer

Thanks to my friends at Astrococktail for the link to this interesting article about writer Henry Miller. Miller was the author of several books that were shocking for their times (the Tropic of Cancer and Tropic of Capricorn were written in the 1930s and banned for many years.  When I was in high school in the mid-1960s they were published in the US for the first time.  Miller is also famed for his relationship with fellow writer Anais Nin who is best known for her works of erotica.  His marriage to […]

The astrology of George Clooney’s engagement

The world’s most eligible bachelor is off the market – George Clooney has renounced his claim that he will never marry again and has become engaged to Amal Alamuddin, British human rights attorney. George Clooney’s astrological chart here. George’s Sun is in Taurus, the sign of earthly delights, stability, security. Taureans crave a peaceful and serene environment and typically do not like change, but because his Sun is conjunct Mercury (the messenger god and ruler of communication and information), there is a part of him that will also crave a […]

The astrology of Elizabeth Warren

warren

Elizabeth Warren has gained fame over the past few years as a passionate defender of the economic rights of American citizens.  She has an enthusiastic following and talk grows daily of a presidential run – talk which is continually denied by Ms. Warren. Elizabeth Warren was born on June 22, 1949 in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.  When I begin to work on an astrological profile I generally try to find a birth time and Astrotheme is often a good source for that.  Astrotheme scours the internet and other sources for accurate […]

The astrology of L’Wren Scott

Lwren Scott

Dear readers – do not despair, I will soon be bringing you soothing words to calm your fears over the upcoming Grand Cross that is causing tabloid news to shiver around the globe.  But meanwhile I have been fascinated with the personage that was L’Wren Scott who took her own life last week. The birthchart of L’Wren Scott (born 4/28/1964 time unknown) shows someone who was born at the peak of the conjunction of Uranus to Pluto in 1964, with the Sun in Taurus.  The Uranus/Pluto conjunction presided over the […]

The astrology of Dylan (Malone) Farrow and Woody Allen

Update: Dylan’s date of birth has been corrected since I first wrote this article, changing the analysis which is reflected in the edits below.   Dylan (now called Malone) Farrow has been in the news recently after an article about the various scandals surrounding Woody Allen appeared in Vanity Fair in November.  This article reports that Dylan was first molested at the age of seven, which from an astrologer’s perspective is the time of the first “Saturn Square,” when Saturn in the sky makes a square to Saturn in the […]

The astrology of Paul Walker’s death

Actor Paul Walker died on November 30th when a 2005 Porsche Carrera he was riding in crashed into a light pole and burst into flames.  Walker was most noted for his role in the “Fast and Furious” franchise of vehicular-oriented action films so it is ironic that he died in an automobile accident. Automobiles are ruled by Mercury which is concerned with short journeys as opposed to plane rides to distant lands.  Mercury was important in Paul Walker’s chart in several ways: Mercury is the traditional ruler of Virgo (I […]

Bikram Choudhury, the Hot Yoga guru, is in Hot Water

Bikram-Choudhury

Bikram Choudhury is no stranger to controversy.  Founder of Bikram Yoga, the 26-posture sequence that is performed in an environment of at least 105 degrees, Choudhury has been involved in several copyright infringement lawsuits and sexual harassment complaints.  In a discipline that for thousands of years has embraced the wide sharing of knowledge, Choudhury’s attempt to claim ownership over yoga poses has been controversial even in the world of American yoga which is admittedly more material in nature than in its native India.  Choudhury first came to the US at […]

The Astrology of Prince George Alexander Louis of Cambridge

Prince William and Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, welcomed their baby boy into the world on July 22nd at 4:24 pm BST.  Will and Kate have been a fresh air for the British monarchy which has been plagued by scandal and crisis for an entire generation. The baby, who does not yet have a name, was born while the Sun was still in Cancer (at 29 degrees, 58 minutes).  You can’t get much closer to a Leo Sun without being there, and the symbology of the last degree is an […]
