Does George Washington hold the key to choosing America’s next President?

Last time there was a US Presidential Election (2012), I stuck my neck out and made some predictions about the outcome based on fairly traditional astrological methods. Although my predictions came true, this time around I wanted to do something different. There are already so many astrologers out there making predictions for the 2016 race… Continue reading Does George Washington hold the key to choosing America’s next President?

Neptune in Pisces: flooding, drowning and tidal surges in the UK

Neptune stationed on the 11th of November, ending its annual retrograde period, which began around 7 June 2013. For many, this came as something of a relief. Neptune’s stay in the sign of Pisces has been anything but peaceful or uneventful, especially when it comes to the sea. Since Neptune’s ingress into water-ruled Pisces in… Continue reading Neptune in Pisces: flooding, drowning and tidal surges in the UK

Astrological Review of December 2011

Death of a North Korean Dictator December 2011 saw the death of North Korean dictator, Kim Jong-il. Although his passing away was officially announced on the 17th of December, no one is sure of the exact time or date of his death, nor indeed, of his birth, given this controlling regime’s penchant for secrecy and their preference for mythologizing the life of their ‘dear leader’ in… Continue reading Astrological Review of December 2011

Astrological Review of October 2011

With plenty of contacts between Venus and Mercury, October was an eventful month, especially for legal decisions. We had the headline-grabbing acquittal of Amanda Knox, jailed for the murder of Meredith Kercher, after her appeal hearing in Italy. This occurred when both were part of a stellium of planets in Libra, sign of justice and the law. Later with Venus and Mercury having ingressed into vindictive, sometimes vengeful Scorpio, from where they opposed the Moon and Jupiter, politician, Liam Fox, was forced to resign amidst scandalous rumours about his association with Adam Werritty.  A… Continue reading Astrological Review of October 2011

Astrological Review of September 2011

The September Autumn Equinox saw the return to prominence of many issues that were topical around the March 2011 Spring Equinox, including the Arab democratic uprisings, the publication of a raft of recommended changes to UK banking laws, and the fate of the US and Eurozone economies. Rather fittingly from an astrological standpoint, these events corresponded with the stationing of Pluto in Capricorn (17th); retrograde since May 2011, which many astrologers consider to symbolise the need formajor reform of the world’s financial and political institutions, as well as the need… Continue reading Astrological Review of September 2011

Astrological Review of August 2011

No sooner had the phone hacking scandal dissipated then the UK was hit by global stock market volatility with European and American shares falling to record lows in the wake of uncertainty about US and Italian national debts at the start of August. A few days later, a number of flashmobs and riots broke out, starting in Tottenham, London on the 6th, soon spreading across the UK the following week, accompanied by wholesale looting of certain high street shops . At the time, Pluto and Uranus in cardinal signs came within… Continue reading Astrological Review of August 2011

Astrological Review of July 2011

July was an intense and eventful month, given the phone hacking scandal that just seemed to get bigger and uglier with each passing day. The situation seemed to spring out of nowhere and develop momentum just days after the solar eclipse in Capricorn on the 1st, with reports that News of the World journalists had hacked into murder victim, Milly Dowler’s phone surfacing in the press around the 4th. Within a week, the tabloid newspaper had been closed down, leaving over 200 journalists jobless and a growing political firestorm brewing over how widespread the practice had been within the British press and… Continue reading Astrological Review of July 2011

Astrological Review of June 2011

June played host to two eclipses, starting with a partial solar eclipse in Gemini on the 1st. This signalled the start of a new six month phase in politics, intellectual thought, education, religious beliefs, the media, communications, commerce and travel matters. Saturn also finally ended its period of retrograde motion on the 13th in Libra - the sign ruling relationships, the law, fairness and justice, bringing internal and hidden issues back out into the world once again. During the eclipse, the Sun and Moon made a trine to Saturn, suggesting that regulations, authorities and structuresrelated to Libran-ruled matters might somehow… Continue reading Astrological Review of June 2011

Astrological Review of May 2011

At the very beginning of May, the world was startled by the announcement that Osama Bin Laden had been killed during a covert operation by US military forces in Pakistan.  Jubilation by the American people soon turned to doubt and cynicism as it emerged that they had buried his body out at sea. Despite repeated calls for proof,  the US government refused to publish photographs of the corpse, leaving many wondering whether it was really true that this long-sought fugitive had indeed been caught and killed.… Continue reading Astrological Review of May 2011

Astrological Review of April 2011

Around the April New Moon on the 4th, many people reported experiencing intense aggravation and anxiety as the Sun, Moon and Jupiter in Aries opposed Saturn in Libra. On the world stage, Portugal finally admitted to needing a financial bailout from the EU, which led to all sorts of squabbles about whether the EU should continue to bail out ailing countries in the Eurozone, and the exact nature of what bailouts are – aid or loans? This in turn, led to further discussions about the Euro and the future of the EU.  . .… Continue reading Astrological Review of April 2011
