  • Lily Allen – telling it like it was

    No Comments
         Lily Allen, a successful UK singer and TV presenter, has written a brutally honest (over-sharing according to the Guardian) memoir about her first 33 years. There’s drugs, drink, sex which was good, rape and indifferent, bulimia and erratic parents. Born 2 May 1985, no birth time, in London to a film producer mother and a Welsh-comedian father who left when she was young, she appeared first on TV aged 3, attended 13 different schools and was expelled from two for drinking and smoking. In her adult life she had best-selling albums, multiple relationships, a miscarriage and a still birth with post-natal depression, was stalked for several years and was recently diagnosed as bi-polar. An exhausting life. She’s a …Keep reading »

           The unstoppable popular novelist Stephen King, known mainly for his horror, supernatural, suspense, fantasy and science fiction was 71 yesterday. He has written 58 novels, sold 350 million, written innumerable short stories, won multiple awards and is omnipresent on other authors’ book covers with complimentary puffs and on twitter. The litterati tends to look down on him since he sells but a reviewer commented favourably on his “pungent prose, sharp ear for dialogue, disarmingly laid-back, frank style, along with his passionately fierce denunciation of human stupidity and cruelty.” Born 21 September 1947 1.30am Portland, Maine, he was brought up by a single mother in relative poverty with his father abandoning them when he was two. He wrote at …Keep reading »
  • Pluto in Capricorn – lessons not yet learnt

           Pluto in Capricorn is the great tracker of all matters economic on a macro-level. You could write a history of money through the times of its appearance, roughly every 250 years.  Charlemagne in the 8th Century –  had an important role in determining the immediate economic future of Europe. He standardised the monetary system which unified the complex array of currencies in use at the start of his reign, so simplifying trade. Kublai Khan two Pluto in Capricorns later: is considered to be the first of fiat money makers (i.e. paper money not gold or silver). The paper bills made collecting taxes and administering the huge empire much easier while reducing cost of transporting coins. The next Pluto …Keep reading »
  • Brexit – bulldozers and brick walls

           Well there’s a surprise – the EU digging in their heels. Actually it’s not. What was more of a surprise were the emollient words coming from the EU before the Salzburg Summit raising false hopes which didn’t fit with any of the UK politicians’ charts. Theresa May looks poleaxed and devastated despite her customary stalwart utterances. She has tr Pluto square her Sun/Neptune midpoint this month and next over the Party Conference – Ebertin describes that as ‘a tragic deception or illusion.’ With perhaps a jolting shock from Solar Arc Uranus conjunct her Sun. Her Government chart is also in convulsions from a nervous crisis with tr Uranus conjunct the Sun/Neptune now till mid October; with a bad-tempered …Keep reading »

    1 Comment

They arrived on Wednesday night at 10.10 pm and 10.22 pm in Frimley, Farnborough, being dubbed Ping and Pong. Thank heavens for decent birth times.

Their charming and theatrical Venus in Scorpio opposes Uranus and …Keep reading »
  • Christine Blasey Ford – in the eye of the storm

           Christine Blasey Ford, the professor who has made allegations of sexual assault against Brett Kavanaugh, is being trashed by Republicans and right-wing commentators. So much for #metoo making a difference. After the alleged incident when she was 15 years old she evidently dropped out of social circulation for several years and has said it ‘derailed her’. Ultimately she moved to study psychology and only recounted the incident in detail a few years ago when in couples therapy with her husband. Mark Judge, a friend of Kavanaugh’s, whom she claims was present and is refusing to give testimony, wrote a memoir in recent years about his time as a ‘teenage alcoholic.’ One of Kavanaugh’s mentors, who spoke on behalf …Keep reading »
  • Jane Fonda – a complicated and influential talent

         The redoubtable Jane Fonda, actress, activist and keep-fit guru, is still going strong at nearly 81 and looking twenty years younger. In a new HBO documentary, Jane Fonda in Five Acts (out Sept. 24), she opens up about growing up with a bipolar mother who suicided when she was 12 — and how she eventually learned to understand and forgive her. Born 21 December 1937 at 9.14 am New York, with actor Henry Fonda as a father, she studied art, did some modelling and had her life turned around when she met acting coach Lee Strasberg. She said: “It was a turning point in my life. It was like the roof had come off my life.”  A prolific stage and screen …Keep reading »
