Sheryl Crow’s Rough Year Continues

Sheryl Crow's Rough Year Continues

Following shortly on the heels of her breakup with Lance Armstrong, Sheryl Crow announced that she is being treated for breast cancer. In the earlier article on the Crow/Armstrong breakup in this column we saw that Sheryl was undergoing a number of planetary events that could create difficulties for her. I have always liked Sheryl Crow’s courage and drive, and love singing her music really loud while driving. Because astrology is a study of possibilities, it is easier to look back and connect the dots than to predict the future. […]

The Healing Crisis Continues…

As Saturn continues to oppose Chiron (see earlier article) conflict erupts all over the globe and my hope for expanded negotiations with Mars (aggression) entering Gemini (communication) have not come to fruition–instead, we are seeing the more negative manifestation of Mars in Gemini which becomes easily frustrated and can be unwilling to listen to the other side of the argument. In addition, Mercury has slowed down before making its retrograde turn on March 2, and this “stationary” period often brings in the difficulties in communication and misunderstandings for which Mercury […]

Will Hillary Run?

Will Hillary Run?

Hillary Clinton is all over the news lately as the most recognized Presidential candidate. A recent CNN/Gallup poll shows that 39% of Democrats polled said they would vote for Clinton in 2008, as opposed to 15% for John Kerry, 13% for Al Gore and 12% for John Edwards. These numbers have been consistent over the past year, and Hillary is looking like a front-runner for the Democrats. Will she run, and if she runs, will she win? Let’s take a look at her chart. Note to astrologers: Hillary has given […]

Synchronicity and Astrology

Synchronicity and Astrology

In magickal legend, the mage Hermes Trismegistus is a fusion of the Greek/Roman god of communication (Hermes/Mercury) was fused with the Egyptian god of wisdom (Thoth) who gave to Egypt not only their laws and alphabet, but also the spells used in the pyramid chambers and the astrological traditions. Hermes Trismegistus is credited with the famous “as above, so below” that describes the synchronicity of astrology: It is true, certain, and without falsehood, that whatever is below is like that which is above; and that which is above is like […]

The Astrology of Brokeback Mountain

The Astrology of Brokeback Mountain

Please refrain from making the obvious scatalogical jokes when reading about Uranus, especially in this context! Astrologers pronounce this planet “Your-ah-nus” in order to avoid this type of thing. The success of Brokeback Mountain is nothing less than a phenomenon. Who would have thought a movie about two gay cowboys would sweep all of the awards shows? The answer may lie in the currently ongoing square between Jupiter and Neptune and the trine of Jupiter to Uranus. Jupiter represents expansion, opportunity, and the expression of shared beliefs such as theology […]

Happy Birthday Pisces!!

Happy Birthday Pisces!!

Somehow over the weekend I missed the fact that the Sun entered Pisces on Sunday! Pisces is the most watery of the water signs, and the last of the twelve zodiac signs. Like a drop of water falling into a river that ultimately flows into the deepest ocean, Pisces seeks to merge into an experience of something greater and more divine, an experience that is beyond this world. Like Aquarius, Pisces has two rulers which gives it’s nature a greater complexity. Neptune is known as the “modern ruler” of Pisces. […]

Remembering Kurt Cobain on His Birthday

Remembering Kurt Cobain on His Birthday

Kurt Cobain would have been 39 on Monday, February 27 2006. I am a little old for the Nirvana scene, but I was captivated by the song “Smells Like Teen Spirit. ” This haunting song became the anthem of the Uranus/Pluto conjunction generation (1964 through 1968). This generation has also been termed “Generation X” : the generation “who wanted to hop off the merry-go-round of status, money, and social climbing that so often frames modern existence.” Douglas Coupland, Generation X: Tales of an Accelerated Culture. The period from 1964 through […]

Storms on Saturn and Cultural Conflict

Storms on Saturn and Cultural Conflict

A reader brought to my attention a new storm on the planet Saturn and asked whether these storms have astrological implications. This new storm circles the entire planet, and is unleashing lightning bolts more than 1000 times stronger than those found on earth. In doing a bit of research, I discovered that the last significant storm activity on Saturn occurred between July and December of 1994 so I set about to find astrological and histroical correlations between these two events. In July of 1994, Saturn was traveling retrograde through the […]

More Talk with Mars Entering Gemini Tomorrow

Mars has been traveling through Taurus since July of last year – a long time for fast moving Mars and the longest time Mars has traveled through Taurus since 1974. Mars turns retrograde only once every two years or so, and since Mars entered Taurus we saw two Mars retrograde periods where actions result more from internal stimuli and tend to be more hidden and less easily understood. Taurus is a fixed earth sign: stubborn and placid and rooted in solid values and beliefs. Mars represents raw drive and aggression, […]

What Happened to Paul Hackett?

What Happened to Paul Hackett?

Most people don’t know much about Paul Hackett, but he was beginning to look like a rising star in the Democratic party. An Iraq war and Marine Corps veteran, he ran for Congress in a special 2005 election and was narrowly defeated by Jean Schmidt amidst widespread reports of election fraud. Still, Hackett garnered 48 percent of the vote in an overwhelmingly Republican district and decided to run in the 2006 election. Suddenly today he announced that he is withdrawing from the Senate race and possibly from politics altogether, evidently […]
