Astrological review of April 2013

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

The Astrology of Obama’s Second Inauguration

Obama Second Inauguration January saw the second inauguration of President Obama on the 20th and 21st of the month.  The ceremonies took place just as the Sun left conservative Capricorn (representative of the Republicans) and ingressed into progressive, egalitarian Aquarius (associated with Democratic values).  Aquarius also happens to be rising in Obama’s natal chart, so he, the Democrats and the times… Continue reading The Astrology of Obama’s Second Inauguration

Astrological Review of October 2012

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

Astrological Review of April 2012

Last month, we witnessed the annual stationing of Pluto, once again in the sign of Capricorn, on April the 10th /11th. Coming on the back of the double-whammy of the Mercury and Mars retrogrades, which resulted in major travel delays, loss of data, and a distinct decrease in physical vitality or the ability to make good progress, this stationing also coincided with the resignation of arch-conservative Republican candidate, Rick Santorum, from… Continue reading Astrological Review of April 2012

Astrological Review of January 2012

January seemed to be a month themed around economics and money. The headlines were filled with news and views on this topic, from speculation and fears about the future of Europe and the global economy at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, to anger and indignation about banker’s bonuses and the apparent lack of corporate responsibility or social accountability exhibited by the finance sector when it comes to top executive pay in the… Continue reading Astrological Review of January 2012

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 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 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
