Dear Taurus – ready for revolutionary change?

On 16 May 2018, Uranus enters the zodiac sign of Taurus. This will mean different things to different people. But one thing that’s for certain is that sometime between 16thMay and April 2026, each and every Taurean will be for an interesting ride when Uranus conjuncts his or her natal Sun. This is a perfect time for astrological coaching. To understand why, remember that Uranus was discovered by William Herschel (in Bath, England) around 1781 – a time of revolution – both for the United States and France. It was also the time of the Industrial Revolution – massive breakthrough…

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…

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…

Donald Trump – astro basics you can’t afford to ignore

There’s no sense in asking why Donald Trump embraces alternative truths – and there’s no sense in demanding him to do otherwise. As you can see from his natal chart, he has Neptune square Mercury and in the words of some of my excellent astrological colleagues  – ‘this aspect indicates a difficulty with an overactive imagination interfering with rational and logical processes of thought – which can result in self-deception and the construction of a private version of truth and reality’.In the words of another excellent astrological colleague, this aspect also ‘suggests problems with concentration and stretching the truth (consciously…

Composite Venus Conjunct Composite Uranus

  The composite chart is created by taking the midpoint between pairs of each of two person’s natal planets (in this case Venus and Uranus) and using them to create a third, new chart. The composite chart is not the same as synastry, which examines how one person impacts the other. Instead the composite chart represents the relationship as a whole giving insight into the dynamics upon which it, as a relationship, functions. Composite Venus reflects the power of attraction between parties to a relationship as well as the ideals which the relationship is meant to express. Venus operates by differentiation; this is X and that is…
