North Korea+United States = War?

I wrote this several months ago a = then it was mere speculation and now its beginning to look like something else altogether….   Trump and North Korea share bad blood. If North Korea has it in for the US then equally, everything for which North Korea stands gets Trump’s metaphorical ‘goat’. Keywords include: eccentric actions, upset, and excitement. Although the US may be prone to making threats, it does not usually enjoy a taste for war. However, if ever Kim Jong-un felt pressed to prove himself as a capable leader/dictator, it is now; with transiting Pluto making a seriously…

North Korea+United States = War?

  Trump and North Korea share bad blood. If North Korea has it in for the US then equally, everything for which North Korea stands gets Trump’s metaphorical ‘goat’. Keywords include: eccentric actions, upset, and excitement. Although the US may be prone to making threats, it does not usually enjoy a taste for war. However, if ever Kim Jong-un felt pressed to prove himself as a capable leader/dictator, it is now; with transiting Pluto making a seriously uncomfortable conjunction with his natal Sun, he is ‘enjoying’ a compulsive and self-destructive energy that will crescendo in late September/October 2017. Those  believing…

What might you personally expect from the upcoming eclipse?

On 21 August 2017, there will be a total eclipse of the Sun. This will occur at 28 Leo 55. Whilst these eclipses are not exactly rare, (most calendar years have four eclipses, two of which must be solar eclipses), they do tend to attract a good deal of attention. This upcoming solar eclipse has achieved fame because of its connections with the charts of the USA and its president, Mr Trump. Astrologers view eclipses as a release of pent up energy that shakes us out of our everyday complacency so that we can get up and running again. As you also…

Star lore confirms trouble for Mr Trump as the result of the up-coming total solar eclipse

Yesterday I blogged about the effects of the upcoming solar eclipse using the Leo ingress chart set for Washington, DC. I would like to add two points based on associated star lore. Might you recall that flashy, dramatic Mercury that was too close for comfort with Mr Trump’s natal Mars? Well, the fixed stars associated with that Mercury (and Mars) not only confirm trouble but also flesh out some details: Ingress Mercury is conjunct the fixed star, Alderamin – in the constellation Cepheus, The King. Because of this, the ingress Mercury is infused with Alderamin’s energy – which, at best, is out…

Leo Ingress spells ‘communication’ problems for the USA?

Summary – During the next few weeks expect a flashy, hostile communication involving (or instigated by) Mr Trump which will cause serious concern to the US court system and/or Congress. Could this mean war? Astrologers love making predictions about how the upcoming total solar eclipse will affect the USA. There are many ways to look at this but today I’ll do something different – taking a look at the Leo ingress chart (i.e. prediction technique involving chart drawn for the moment that the Sun will enter 0 Leo) set for Washington, DC. This forecast should be good from 22 July…

Trump and this summer’s Solar Eclipse

On 21 August 2017, a total solar eclipse (28 Leo 52) darkens the United States from Oregon to South Carolina. What might we expect to happen? Star lore associated with Leo offers interesting clues: Heroes (Gilgamesh, Oedipus, Orion) wrestling with lions, Courage, invincibility, command and power, Kings and leaders, Fire – hot/dry – fingers get burnt, Dramatic, craves attention, Quick anger, spare diplomacy. It that’s not enough, transiting Uranus (28 Aries 23 – retrograde) is also closely tied in with this. Uranus disrupts everything that it touches. It is a lightening bolt from the blue. Serious change in any direction and…

Eclipse of the Day

Unless an eclipse triggers a sensitive natal aspect (i.e. between 5-13 degrees of Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces, or Gemini), or falls on your angles (i.e. cusps of the 1st, 4th, 7th, or 10th houses), you are likely not to feel it too much. But if it does, then it will function like a power surge, provoking a crisis of some sort.

Using tomorrow’s Total Solar Eclipse to your best advantage

Tomorrow, 9 March 2016, at 2 AM GMT (London), there is a total eclipse of the Sun. As you probably know, this means that the Moon  passes between the Sun and Earth and hence completely blocks our view of the Sun. You probably also know that most calendar years have four eclipses, two of which must be solar eclipses and whilst total solar eclipses are not exactly rare (approximately once every 18 months a total solar eclipse is visible from some place on Earth), they do tend to attract a good deal of attention. Astrologers view eclipses as a release of…
