I discovered with interest and some surprise, that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex plan to give up many of their royal duties in order to become more independent. Naturally, this has caused a fair amount of controversy in the British media. However, what struck me as an astrologer was how closely their announcement (which… Continue reading 'Megxit' & the 2018-2020 Eclipses
Since the ANC's leadership elections in December 2017, where Cyril Ramaphosa, seemingly against the odds, managed to emerge as the victor, there has been much speculation about how long Jacob Zuma had as SA president before he was forced to step down. According to party insiders, that moment has been imminent since the lunar eclipse… Continue reading Et tu, Brute? Has the cat with nine lives finally run out of chances?
Since it was first announced by Clarence House that the Duchess of Cambridge was pregnant with her and Prince William’s second child, the speculation and guessing around details of her pregnancy and the future birth has continued unabated. The question that is on most people’s lips right now is: “Will the next little Cambridge be… Continue reading Can we expect Royal Twins?
This month, many fans of the British royal family will be anxiously anticipating the arrival of Catherine and Prince William’s first child, so I thought I would break with tradition in terms of my Astro-Insights columns by looking forward at current events, rather than backwards this July, and take a closer look at the potential… Continue reading Astrology & Predicting the Royal Birth Date
As one would expect from a month dominated by Martian energy, not to mention a lunar eclipse in Scorpio, April 2013 proved to be rather eventful, and somewhat bloody month. As well as the death of Britain’s first and (so far) only female Prime Minister, Margaret Thatcher on the 8th in London at around 11am… Continue reading Astrological review of April 2013
November seemed to be dominated by two things – the American presidential elections and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. As I wrote in my article on the former, there did seem to be a clear astrological indication that Obama would win, and indeed, he did. For those interested in the details, visit my Astro-Headlines page. The Palestinian-Israeli crisis seemed to erupt shortly… Continue reading Astrological Review of October 2012
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
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
During February, a series of contacts to the lunar nodes by major planets, Jupiter andUranus appeared to mobilise the populace of several North African and middle eastern countries, including Tunisia, Egypt, Algeria, Libya and Bahrain, into protesting against their despotic political leaders and calling for democratic political reform. Both Uranus and Jupiter have been hovering near the mid-point of the nodal axis since the beginning of February, together forming a T-square with… Continue reading Astrological Review of February 2011
