Stephanie Miller: An Astrological Fan Letter (UPDATED!)

I’ve been wanting to profile a woman here, and there haven’t been many women in the news lately. I want to cover Barbara Boxer and Dianne Feinstein at some point, and I thought a noble first choice would be Christiane Amanpour who is just so fabulous. I also considered the annoying Rita Crosby. But then I decided it was most appropriate for my first female profile here to be Stephanie Miller. From the first time I listened to the Stephanie Miller show I was hooked. She has an amazing way […]

Braggadocio Increases as Mars Approaches Jupiter

Mars, the Warrior God, is approaching an opposition with Jupiter, the King God. Although the opposition won’t be exact until next week (January 13), we are already seeing the effects. Mars represents our personal will and desire, it shows how we express ourselves aggressively and how we go about getting what we want. Jupiter represents our highest aspirations – our search for meaning and truth. When these two guys oppose each other the result is arrogance, braggadocio, and generally obnoxious behavior and increased aggression on the battlefield as well. Both […]

Calling All Skeptics!

Show me someone who doesn’t believe that astrology works, and I’ll show you someone who reads newspaper horoscopes. If I had my way I would ban those stupid things from every publication across the globe! There is simply no way that you can predict someone’s future from their sun sign. The astrological makeup of each individual is very complex, and requires a great deal of analysis and synthesis to be able to draw any conclusions. So when skeptics say that people with the same sun signs are very different they […]

Ariel Sharon in Serious Condition

Ariel Sharon has arguably been one of the most significant figures in world history over the past thirty years. (painting by W. Horvath: The Spiral of Violence) Because of the importance of Israel in world politics and the growth of international terrorism, decisions made there have had enormous global impact. Ariel Sharon has been a fierce warrior for his country, but has also been seen as a warmonger and destroyer of the Palestinian people. Ironically, Ariel Sharon has many of the same astrological characteristics as Jack Abramoff (see article below). […]

Jack Abramoff Begins to Sing

One of my readers noted that I haven’t posted any profiles of women, but the Abramoff story is just too delicious and frankly, the only women in the news have been Lindsay, Britney and Jessica and I am not THAT much of a gossip hound. So let’s dive right into Jack Abramoff’s chart and see what makes him tick. (Photo courtesy of Village Voice) Abramoff was born with the Sun and Mercury in the watery, misty sign of Pisces. Pisces is often represented by two fish swimming in opposite directions, […]

Mercury Enters Capricorn Today

Mercury has been traveling through the upbeat sign of Sagittarius for a month or so, and now moves into the serious sign of Capricorn. Mercury rules the mental functions, communication, small machinery and telephones, and generally the way we process information. When Mercury is in Capricorn, the sign of goals, accomplishment and leadership, information processing happens to serve a purpose. Capricorn is the sign that says “the ends justify the means,” and the means is often to preserve the established social order which is also signified by Capricorn. Over the […]

Looking Back at Goals of Years Past

This morning I sat down to set my goals for the year, something I used to do New Year’s Day but due to various social obligations this sacred process has now been relegated to the 2nd day of January instead. At any rate, I have my lists of goals from every year going back to 1990, the year I was divorced, when I went through the Tony Robbins 30 day program in about 5 days and set economic and personal development goals and goals for “things.” Amazingly, very few of […]

Predictions for 2006

Although as I’ve said before I don’t believe that it’s really possible to predict the future, it’s fun to make a stab at it. This coming year brings some interesting planetary configurations that could have a strong impact. The stock market. Jupiter (abundance and opportunity) is currently traveling through Scorpio, which rules the stock market and shared resources. This would normally be beneficial to the stock market, but Jupiter is coming off of a square to Saturn in mid December that may have had some influence in limiting (Saturn) growth […]

New Year Resolutions: Make Them Reality!!

There’s something powerful about the end of an old year and the beginning of a new one. A sense of opportunity abounds, and there is a feeling that the slate can be wiped clean and a new beginning can take root. To accomplish that, we often set new year resolutions for things that we like to change, but we often lack the tools and motivation to really make those things happen. We may end up frustrated and with a sense of failure at not having achieved what we set out […]

Mars Square Saturn

Although this aspect didn’t culminate until yesterday, it’s been in effect for some time as part of the Grand Cross so it hasn’t received the attention from me that it deserved. Mars square Saturn is often described as “driving with the brakes on” – Mars wants to go, to take action, and Saturn is the brakes that doesn’t allow motion to happen. Mars often represents willful behavior, arrogance, aggression, and Saturn is the paternal scolding voice. We can see this at play in the escalation of tension in Iraq, in […]
