  • India v Pakistan – brewing up for a hot-headed confrontation

    1 Comment
    18 Indian soldiers died in the raid on a Kashmir base recently, the worst such attack in more than two decades. It is blamed on Pakistan who hotly deny it but it has heightened tensions between the two nuclear-armed neighbours. Indian PM Narendra Modi is under pressure from his own party and his own past rhetoric to take decisive action. So far he’s holding back mindful of the risks of war, damaging India’s fast growing economy and causing international alarm. But he is set to boycott what was to be a historic regional summit in Islamadad in November, a symbol of reconciliation, which is a humiliating diplomatic blow to Pakistan. Previous Indo-Pak wars in 1965, 1971 were launched on Saturn Pluto …Keep reading »
  • UK Child Abuse Inquiry – still stuttering after 2 years plus

    No Comments
      The beleaguered UK Child Abuse Inquiry set up by Theresa May on 7 July 2014, announced at 4.40pm London, now on its fourth chairman, is in trouble again. The lead lawyer, Ben Emmerson, is ‘considering his position’ after an alleged dispute with Professor Alexis Jay, the new head, over the remit for the Inquiry. It was set up on a Cardinal Grand Cross of a Cancer Sun opposition Pluto square Uranus opposition Mars – so no surprises it’s progress has been beset by rolling crises. Disruptions, upheavals and aggravations are likely to be the theme ahead as these four planets shift by transit and Solar Arc to stoke up problems for years ahead. Alexis Jay, much praised for her …Keep reading »
  • Sam Allardyce – the mighty felled

    No Comments
      England football manager Sam Allardyce, a former player, has resigned his job by mutual agreement with the Football Association after one match and 67 days in charge, following a newspaper investigation claiming he offered advice on how to “get around” rules on player transfers. He is also alleged to have used his role to negotiate a deal worth £400,000 to represent a Far East firm.  An FA statement said, “He accepts he made a significant error of judgement and has apologised.” Born 19 Oct 1954, he’s a working-class lad done well with a flash house on the Costa Brava and worth millions. He’s got a Sun Neptune in Libra on the point of a T square to Mars in Capricorn …Keep reading »
  • Deutsche Bank’s woes – Merkel on the horns of a dilemma

    1 Comment
      Germany is in the grip of a banking crisis with no clear solution. The mammoth Deutsche Bank, based in Frankfurt with a global outreach, once seen as Europe’s strongest financial institution, is in dire trouble facing falling profits, a struggle to cut costs and restructure, legal wrangles and a whopping $14 billion dollar fine from the US for dodgy sub-prime mortgage selling ten years back. They haven’t the capital to pay the fine and Angela Merkel has said there’ll be no bail-out, since that would open the floodgates, especially in Italy where the government is desperate to breach EU rules to fund their banks sagging under bad loans with tax payers money. Deutsche Bank was set up on 22 …Keep reading »
  • Shimon Peres – died without achieving his goal

    No Comments
      Shimon Peres, one of Israel’s leading statesmen and Nobel Prize winner in 1994 for his efforts to negotiate peace in the Middle East, has died. There’s a dispute about his birthdate, partly because it is transcribed from the Hebrew calendar, but Astro.com says his mother confirmed 16 August 1923 with a sunrise birth time from his father of 5.51 am Visnevo, Poland. This gives him four planets in Leo – Sun, Mars, Neptune, Venus, falling in Israel’s 10th and 11th house, beside the Israel Moon Pluto Saturn Mars in Leo, so a key figure in their history. His Libra Moon was conjunct the Israel Neptune, so an almost telepathic connection. He had a healing Water Grand Trine of Jupiter …Keep reading »

    1 Comment
      Zoe Ball, TV and radio presenter, and DJ, music producer Norman Cook (Fatboy Slim) have split after 18 years and two children – with a longish history of drug problems, rehab and the odd affair.

She was born 23 Nov 1970 and is a vague, creative Sun Neptune in Sagittarius with probably a late Virgo Moon conjunct Pluto, and Venus Jupiter in Scorpio; with a singleton Saturn in Taurus in one hemisphere of her chart. His Moon and her Sun chime though her Neptune …Keep reading »
  • Jenna Coleman & Tom Hughes – lacking the spark of Rufus

    1 Comment
        Jenna Coleman, star of the television ‘Victoria’ has allegedly moved in with Tom Hughes, who plays her husband, the well-meaning but hapless, Prince Albert. They were both born in 1986 only two weeks apart, she on 27 April and he on 18 April. She’s an early Sun Taurus trine Mars Neptune and opposition Pluto, with a Sagittarius Moon perhaps conjunct Uranus or Saturn; with Venus in Gemini. Certainly determined, stubborn, emotionally changeable. He’s a Sun Aries opposition Pluto with a Leo Moon perhaps square Pluto, and Venus in later Taurus. Both have a showbizzy Mars Neptune conjunction, and both have Pluto trine Jupiter in Pisces. There’s some cross-over between their Fire planets – her Moon and his Sun …Keep reading »
