Alexander McQueen: l’enfant terrible of fashion

December 27th, 2019 · No Comments · Astrology, celebrity, Instruction

A fashion show by Alexander McQueen was never anything less than a spectacle. Whether it was just his innate sense of drama, or the perverse delight he took in shocking his audience of fashionistas, he pulled out all the stops. His half-naked models, their scarcely-concealed buttocks or breasts leaving little to the imagination, would stride […]

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez: the face of America’s New Deal

March 6th, 2019 · 4 Comments · Astrology, celebrity, Instruction

In the Vedic pantheon of deities, Venus is known as the Asuracharya, or guru to the demons. Judging by the invective heaped upon her by Republicans and conservative news media alike, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez seems nothing short of the anti-Christ. But maybe that’s just the price you pay when you arrive on the battlefield announcing yourself […]

By all odds, John McCain should have died in Vietnam. His survival made him a legend worthy of what is truly great about America: demonstrating courage under fire, and acting with honesty and integrity in support of principles that transcend individual well-being for the sake of one’s country. His chart has several classic yogas. Sasha […]

Aretha Franklin: R-E-S-P-E-C-T

September 2nd, 2018 · No Comments · Astrology, celebrity

At first glance, there seems to be so little of significance in Aretha Franklin’s chart that we’re tempted to think, this can’t be right. If she was the Queen of Soul, where are the signs of royalty, soul, and awesome voice? In fact, there are so few yogas in her chart that you can count […]

To the surprise of the moderator, I said their marriage would fail within seven years. The switchboard promptly lit up with agitated callers, castigating me, and astrology, and the […]

Sean Hannity, “opinion journalist”

May 2nd, 2018 · 3 Comments · Astrology, celebrity

Many serpents are immune to the venom of their own species. Perhaps this explains the cozy relationship between two current examples of the Kala Sarpa pattern – president Donald Trump and “opinion journalist” Sean Hannity. Snakes also have forked tongues, lurk in dark places, and are noted for their peculiar mating habits, wherein they engage […]
