Really sad to hear the news about Amy. I have written about her a few times before, and always noticed how her chart revealed her huge talent and sadly great torment too. There is a particular combination of aspects in there that mirrored her tendency to go into downward spiral, and to find it very difficult to get out again.
She had natal Saturn in Scorpio conjunct Pluto in Libra, a very intense blend of energies that have a unique vibration and frequency. Both planets aspected a Moon/Neptune conjunction. Her time of birth is not known, so her Moon may be close or even conjunct Neptune, or further away. But the link between all four planets reveals a state of mind into which she was drawn back again and again.
Saturn in Scorpio and conjunct Pluto is a double whammy which takes her right down into those dark areas of the psyche and beyond. She had a natural attraction to all that was taboo and yet sought to numb herself from the revelations which naturally evolved out of such explorations. Alcohol and drugs were the way she cocooned herself from the pain which she wanted to understand and escape from at the same time. Continue reading Amy Winehouse – Talent & Torment
If the Pieman hadn’t attempted to lob a shaving foam soufle in Rupe’s face, and if his wife Wendi hadn’t come to his rescue so quickly, yesterday’s confrontation with the Culture Select Committee would have been stale news. Like old cheese combined with bad fish and corporate BO. The outcome was very much a non-event as Rupert, his son James and Rebekah Brooks all denied knowing anything about anything that mattered. Yet something was festering even if no one could put their finger on exactly where it originated, or who was responsible for it.
However, due to the genius of ’failed comic’ Johnnie Marbles as the papers described him, things brightened up considerably. This episode was the highlight, mainly because Wendi, who prefers to stay in the background, displayed the skills of a true Ninja fighter – having no thought for her own safety and diving in single-handed to save the day.
A quick look at her Solar Chart reveals that Wendi is a Sagittarian, with Mercury conjunct her Sun. She is a born adventurer, traveler and scholar who loves to see the world and hates being tied down. She is also very sporting and athletic. So why is she with Rupert? She loves power and has her natal Venus in Capricorn trine Pluto in Virgo. Venus in Capricorn instinctively know who they should be friends with and how to get on in life by getting close to the right people. You could almost say she is addicted to powerful people – and the prestige of being the wife of the world’s biggest media person – until now! Continue reading Rupert Murdoch, Wendi Deng Murdoch, Pieman & Pants
A glance at their charts and shared influences reveals that there is not a shred of romantic feeling between them. Any ideas that both Middleton sisters will marry into the Royal family are laughable. Both Pippa and Harry enjoy a relationship that is more ‘matey’ than anything else. They share a lot of similarities and they understand each other only too well.
Both have a very practical streak and both love adventure, fun and freedom. But Pippa’s love of the high life, of being at the centre of the action, her packed contacts book, her enjoyment of the social scene and her determination to master it are far different from Prince Harry who just loves to have a good time. He is more of a practical joker, and will go to great lengths to pull off the next funny stunt. They make a great team – but they really aren’t going to get any closer at least not in the sense that people seem to think they will. They are certainly fond of each other – but it is an affection devoid of chemistry.
Pippa is very streetwise and knows what she wants. She won’t want to get too deeply involved in the ways of the Royal household. She needs a lot more freedom to run her life on her own terms. Certain aspects of her chart reveal that she needs to be number one in any relationship, and needs to call the shots. Continue reading Pippa & Prince Harry – Do They Really Get Along?
What could have caused the Anglican Bishop of Willesden – Pete Broadbent to vent his spleen on his Facebook page concerning the Royal Wedding between Prince William and Kate Middleton? He branded them as ‘shallow celebrities’ and voiced his view that their marriage was set up to fail by the gutter press.
He also gave it seven years. Not content with this he went on to insult the Royal Family saying its history was filled with ‘broken marriages and philanderers’ and writing that the basis for the hereditary principle is ‘corrupt and sexist’. Neither did Prince Charles nor William’s mother Diana escape his wrath. Describing them as ‘Big ears and the Porcelain Doll’, he remarked that he was glad he had missed out on their wedding.
Since his outburst he has had to apologize profusely for embarrassing the Church as well as the Government, the Royal family and many others. He has been suspended indefinitely for his remarks. Continue reading When Good Bishops Turn Bad
It looks like Kate finally got her Prince. But does she have what it takes to fit into the lifestyle that now awaits her? How will the coming year or so pan out for her and William? Let’s take a look!
Considering the aspects she has in her chart it looks like she is going to be fine. She has some interesting contrasts which suggest that she knows how to put on a public face – but that she also has a very private face reserved just for William. She is very ambitious and may actually enjoy playing the part she seems destined to play. This is down to her Sun in Capricorn which squares her Saturn/Pluto conjunction in Libra.
There is an apparent conflict between the the two and yet – there is a degree of similarity. Saturn in Capricorn almost revels in duty and loves the formality and need for decorum that go with being Prince William’s wife. Saturn and Pluto in Libra suggest an ability to put on a mask that suits the situation she finds herself in. However the Sun in Capricorn represents a more natural love of tradition and traditional ways, whereas the Saturn/Pluto square suggest a need to bury aspects of her real self behind a facade in order to fit in with whatever is going on. Continue reading Kate & Prince William – Katy Waits No More!
Is it really a bad idea to get married when Venus is retrograde, especially when it’s in the sign of Scorpio as it is now? Does it mean that their long-term marriage contract is doomed or will it encourage them to talk heart to heart? Does it even matter at all? It really depends on their inter-aspects and general synastry. While it may have caused a few ructions here and there on the wedding day itself, none of this will be lasting.
There are reports that they face legal problems from an environmental activist Akhshay Sharma who filed a criminal complaint against them and two others because of the noise created by the event at the Ranthambhore National Park in India. It is now being investigated. Continue reading Brand & Perry – Marriage And Venus Retrograde
It seems like only yesterday that Kate Winslet was staring sweetly into the eyes of her husband Sam, and declaring her undying love for him. Within the last few days it has been revealed that they have come to an amicable split. Kate has jetted off on vacation to Mexico, and is being comforted by friends and Sam is in New England.
What has been happening in Kate’s chart that might have precipitated this? Part of the problem may be that she is a very strong women. She looks as though butter wouldn’t melt in her mouth. But with natal Pluto conjunct her Sun and Moon in Libra and on the Ascendant, she is very definitely in charge. Continue reading Kate Winslet Splits From Sam Mendes – Why?

Prince Harry and Chelsea Davy have been meeting up in secret to discuss the future of their relationship. It seems that since they split earlier in the year Harry has realized just how much Chelsy means to him.
Perhaps he needed time to grow up – as he may have taken her for granted in certain respects. Harry has a wide conjunction between Mars and Uranus, so he tends to act first and think later. This is one side of him. There is another side where he can be something of a dark horse especially when it comes to revealing his true feelings. Continue reading Prince Harry And Chelsy A Tentative Approach
Simon Cowell has become famous on both sides of the Atlantic for his outspoken and extremely blunt criticisms of up and coming pop and talent hopefuls. He says he is not rude – just honest. The record industry needs ‘his’ approach because it is overrun with Yes Men. He sees his criticisms as being necessary in order for contestants to survive and become successful. They need to hear the truth because how else will they learn by their mistakes and thrive in an environment which is known to be notoriously difficult and bitchy.
But would you also guess that Simon is a Libra, with his Sun, Mars and Mercury in this balanced and supposedly peace loving sign? This may be surprising if we don’t take a closer look at the sign of Libra and what it is and isn’t. Continue reading Simon Cowell – A Survival Guide!
