Kilimanjaro – They Did It!

Great News! Cheryl Cole, Denise Van Outen, Alesha Dixon, Ben Shepherd, Chris Moyles, Gary Barlow, Kimberley Walsh, Fearne Cotton and Ronan Keating reached the summit of Kilimanjaro early this morning, and even better they all arrived safely.

They have so far raised a staggering £1,454, 972 and people are still donating. Go to www.rednoseday.com if you would like to donate and help them reach £1,500,000.

Fearne Cotton, Cheryl Cole and Ronan Keating were the first to arrive. Last, but not least was Alesha Dixon who was really struggling but absolutely refused to give up. Moving through the pain barrier she finally set foot in the camp.

All of them swear that this is the hardest thing that they have ever done in their lives. The last two days of treking up to the summit is apparently quite agonising, due to the thin air.

Each step hurts and from reading around the subject you have to have huge focus and concentration, and a lot of mental strength to make it. But having done it – I would imagine it gives a great sense of achievement that can be drawn upon when going through difficulties in other areas of life. As well as the physical hardships they have been through, they have also given their minds a major workout – having pushed themselves this far, many of life challenges in the future may seem much easier to deal with.

Cheryl Cole was deeply upset to hear about the antics of her husband Ashley Cole who was arrested for being drunk and disorderly, and she will now have to confront him when she gets back home. But she didn’t let it stop her from carrying on regardless.

Taking a look at the charts of the group there seemed to be a lot of Libran, Piscean, Scorpionic and Sagittarian energy either as a focus in one or other chart, or with a spread of planets moving through these signs in individual charts. The Libran energy helped them to work as a team, the Scorpionic to keep focused and determined no matter what, the Sagittaran energy meant they could all keep their sense of humour and find a reason to be hugely grateful for where they were and what they were doing, and the Piscean energy gave them faith in a higher power to help them carry on  when they felt they did not have the reserves of strength necessary.

Alesha Dixon with her Sun/Pluto and Mercury conjunct in Libra and Mars in Scorpio was not going to give in no matter if she had to crawl the rest of the way up. Meanwhile Gary Barlow has Mars in Scorpio and a Jupiter/Neptune conjunction in Sagittarius – which gave him inner strength and belief that he could make it despite suffering from a stiff back at the outset. He also has a Sun Pluto trine, with his Sun in Capricorn and Pluto in the last degree of Virgo, as well as a Scorpio Moon. So again he was not going to give in, and was ready to reach the summit no matter what it took.

For all nine of them to make it is a great triumph, according to journalist Polly Graham, who swore she would eat Chris Moyles treking hat, and much worse, if they all managed to reach the top. Maybe this would make another interesting fundraiser for Comic Relief.
