John McCain: maverick with a heart

September 7th, 2018 · No Comments · Astrology, celebrity, Instruction

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 […]

Vladimir Putin: the spy who came home with the gold

July 18th, 2018 · 7 Comments · Astrology, celebrity, Instruction

When most astrologers look at Vladimir Putin’s chart and see Venus rising in Libra opposite Jupiter in the 7th house, they say, no, that can’t be right. In fact, I recently read an article in which an astrologer suggested at the outset that it was incongruous that such a configuration, with its implications of art, […]

Harry & Meghan: Marriage of the century or star-crossed misadventure?

June 7th, 2018 · No Comments · Astrology, celebrity, Instruction, Karma

Backstory: In July 1981, I went on a national radio talk show in Montreal to discuss the upcoming Royal wedding between Prince Charles and Diana Spencer. 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 […]

Howard Hughes: an exercise in rectification

February 1st, 2018 · No Comments · Astrology, celebrity, Instruction

Howard Hughes – man of mystery or just another case of misattributed birthday? Although Hughes’ birth time was accurately nailed down as 10:12 PM in Houston, Texas, astrologers must contend with two widely divergent birth dates for the notoriously reclusive billionaire. Astrodienst (astro.com), the go-to site for reputable birth data, provides two dates separated by […]

Hugh Hefner: Playboy of the western world

October 17th, 2017 · No Comments · Astrology, celebrity, Instruction, Karma

Author’s note: I know at first glance this might seem inappropriate, posting an article on Hugh Hefner the week after the Harvey Weinstein  scandal, revealing the latter’s systemic sexual harassment and assault upon young women in the film industry. Bad timing for this article, perhaps, but good timing for Hefner to have died just three […]

Jim Carrey: Man on the Moon?

October 6th, 2017 · No Comments · Astrology, celebrity, Instruction

Every now and again, Jim Carrey gives an interview which causes people to wonder out loud, Is this guy playing with a full deck? Admittedly, Carrey has never been shy about voicing his opinion on matters he considered important. While still partners with Jenny McCarthy, he campaigned publicly against vaccinations, going so far as to […]

Judged by many of his peers to be the greatest American playwright of his generation, Sam Shepard authored 44 plays, and won a Pulitzer for “Buried Child.” But he was also an actor in over 50 movies, receiving an Academy Award nomination for his supporting role in “The Right Stuff.” A multi-talented artist, during his […]
