  • Utada Hikaru – great success, elusive happiness

    1 Comment
      Utada Hikaru is a Japanese-American singer/songwriter whose albums became a smash hit in Japan from 2001 onwards, although she also released in the US and worked on commercials and movie soundtracks. In 2010 she announced she was taking a hiatus because of exhaustion which might last several years. Her mother committed suicide in 2013 and she married a bar tender the following year, having a baby in 2015. Born 19 January 1983 1.17am Manhattan, New York, she does have a tough, bleak chart with a Capricorn Sun square Pluto Saturn. The heaviness of that is leavened by a confident and adventurous Jupiter Uranus in Sagittarius square Mars in Pisces.  Though it’ll also make her excitable and nervy. Her Pisces …Keep reading »
  • Chelsea Manning – a Uranian liberation

    Chelsea Manning has had her 35 year sentence for violations of the Espionage Act commuted with a release date of May 17th, which isn’t a full pardon since it will still stay on her record. But she will be freed from an inhumane military prison which saw her attempt suicide twice recently. Born 17 December 1987, she’s an erratic, though confidently innovative Sun Uranus Saturn Mercury in Sagittarius trine Jupiter in Aries; with an intense and anguished Moon Mars Pluto in Scorpio. Tr Saturn is conjunct her Sagittarius planets throughout 2017 as tr Uranus is trine them – so there will be discouraging reality-checks as well as positive change. She’s got tr Pluto square her Jupiter over her release, from mid …Keep reading »
  • Inauguration – a Mars Saturn blight on celebrations

        Washington is filling up fast for Friday’s Inauguration with unprecedented numbers booked into hotels, with protesters as keen to be present as Trump supporters. At least 28 groups have been credentialed, compared to the five or six requests from groups usually received, and the Park Service is expecting more than 350,000. There will be a demonstration of about 200,000 women protesting Trump, at the weekend. The hotels have unusually booked additional security to keep warring guests apart. What is noteworthy is the Mars square Saturn, exact late Thursday, on degree for the Inauguration, but in typically Saturnine form will hang around for a day or so. At the very least, Mars Saturn is bad-tempered and irritable. Ebertin describes …Keep reading »
  • Emmanuel Macron – the EU hope for France

    1 Comment
      The French election this year is one of the major worries for the EU given the far-right, protectionist, anti-EU Marie Le Pen’s rise to prominence. Francois Fillon who was supposed to be the main block to her success, has flip flopped and backtracked on policies including a cane-the-unions and reform-labour laws which has sent even the far left-wing towards Le Pen. Now Emmanuel Macron, a former economy minister, who is running an independent, centrist, pro-EU campaign, is now seen as capable of causing a major surprise in the spring vote. Born 21 December 1977 10.40am Amiens, France, he’s a Sun Mercury in Sagittarius opposition Jupiter and trine Saturn; with a Taurus Moon opposition Uranus square Mars in Leo in his 7th …Keep reading »
  • Ryan Phillippe – 8th house Mars Pluto Mercury

    No Comments
         Actor, director Ryan Phillippe, best known for roles in Gosford Park, Crash, The Bang Bang Club and most recently the TV thriller series Shooters has talked openly about his struggle with depression. He was married to Reese Witherspoon for eight years, producing two children. In interviews he describes himself as ‘quietly tortured at times. Depression has been a huge obstacle for me ever since I was a child. As you get older I think it decreases some, but I’m just innately kind of a sad person. Some people do have this pervading sort of sadness, or they’re so analytical that they can kind of take the fun out of things because they think too much. I’m empathetic, and …Keep reading »
  • Tom Hardy – turned his life around

    1 Comment
      UK actor Tom Hardy – Black Hawk Down, The Revenant, Mad Max, The Kray Twins, TV’s Peaky Blinders and at present in the savage BBC drama Taboo which he co-created with his father – revels in playing menacing roles. He’s even being mentioned as a future Bond. Born 15 September 1977, he’s another Sun Virgo, like Rufus Sewell, Sean Connery, Jeremy Irons; but his chart is dominated by an adventurous and emotionally excitable Mars Jupiter in Cancer square Pluto, which gives him a reservoir of anger and a real edge of danger. His Mars Jupiter are also trine Uranus which again will stoke up his testosterone. He had a tumultuous youth, being expelled from school, doing several short stays …Keep reading »
