Kavanaugh – I got it wrong – oh, well, what next then? Impeachment on the horizon?

OK, I got it wrong. Yesterday, contrary to my prediction, Brett Kavanaugh was confirmed and sworn in as a Supreme Court judge. Was it me or the astrology? A little bit of both, I suspect. The chart was clear that the decision was already set in stone before I asked the horary question but it wasn’t clear which way that decision went. I filled in the details using a little bit of astrology and a whole lot of how I wanted it to turn out. I don’t know if Kavanaugh did sexually assault Ms. Ford or not and I don’t…

Solar Return for Ms BK – A very good year!

Summary – You’ll remember 2017/18 as a very good year –  for ambition and social contacts. 2018-19 brings a different energy. Although in 2017/18, you’ve been struggling – probably sickness – in 2018-19 you’ll struggle even harder. That won’t stop you though and so 2018/19  is set to be another good year – indeed, this is the period when you establish yourself unequivocally as an authority figure to be admired. With the nodal axis conjunct your solar return MC, for you 2017/18 will feel like a ‘fated year’. This should not be taken in a negative sense. Indeed, it is…

The following is for Ms K’s –  2016-2017: You’ve been busy thinking not only about others but also how your life fits with theirs. But please be careful what actions you take based on conclusions that you may have drawn. Failure to exercise due caution could land you in big trouble. You’re in a period of testing as to your ability to exercise self restraint…

Where might Trump stand for the 2020 presidential elections?

Some believe it’s smooth sailing for Mr Trump through the 2020 presidential elections. But based on his 2019 and 2020 Solar Return (SR) charts (both suggesting lack of energy), I suggest that he won’t get that far.  Although in his 2019 SR chart, Mr Trump  has no angular planets (or planets making tight Ptolemaic aspects to the angles), he does have Saturn, Mars, and Neptune in his (exact) nodal degree. The combination of these planets is not favourable. According to Ebertin, Saturn/Neptune suggests suffering, insecurity and renunciation. Add Mars (chart ruler) to the equation and we have ‘inactivity through emotional depression’.…

Details 2016-17: With Solar Return (SR) Saturn on the SR Midheaven (MC) –  expect a long, hard slog re: career aspirations; expect to…

Solar Return 2017-18 – Happy Birthday SH

The solar return chart constructed for the place in which you currently live, gives a snapshot of your next 12 months. In reading this chart, we look only to the tightest (2-3 degrees at most) Ptolemaic aspects (i.e. trine, square, sextile, conjunction, and opposition). Naturally, we’re looking for angular planets – to the extent there are any, they will pretty much direct the show. Not only this but we’re looking to see if any planets make aspects to the angles or fall in the exact degree of the nodal axis. After that, we will look to the tightest (> 5…

Solar Returns – a clever way to snapshot your upcoming year – thanks Bernadette & Darrelyn!

According to Bernadette Brady and Darrelyn Gunzburg (AstroLogos), when looking at Solar Return (SR) charts, look only to the tightest (Ptolemaic) aspects (2-3 degrees at most) made by your SR planets to the four SR angles as well as any SR planets falling in the exact degree of the SR nodal axis. Not only that, but look at the tightest (hard) aspects made by mid/points and the planets they aspect –  TIGHT =< 5 minutes of arc.  Note – Solar Fire and IO Edition both do Mid-Point Trees reports but if using IO Edition, you’ll also need to use Midpoint…
