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

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

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 […]

Sean Hannity, “opinion journalist”

Sean Hannity, “opinion journalist”

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

Howard Hughes: an exercise in rectification

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

Hugh Hefner: Playboy of the western world

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?

Jim Carrey: Man on the Moon?

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 […]

Sam Shepard: exit, stage left

Sam Shepard: exit, stage left

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 […]

Audrey Hepburn: tiny waif with a big heart

Audrey Hepburn: tiny waif with a big heart

Audrey Hepburn remains one of only a dozen people who’ve won all four of the entertainment industry’s most prestigious honors – the Academy, Emmy, Grammy and Tony Awards. Yet for someone with such a successful career, she has a relatively unremarkable chart. Nonetheless, on closer inspection we realize it illustrates one of the key concepts […]

Kathy Griffin: D-list casualty of war

Kathy Griffin: D-list casualty of war

After last week’s gaffe, Kathy Griffin may have moved from being a D-list celebrity to a D-list train wreck, at least temporarily in terms of her career. Griffin has always been outspoken, and her controversial statements have had her in and out of hot water more often than a lobster determined not to be someone’s […]
