Boris Berezovsky – Suicide or Murder?

As expected, March proved to be a fairly pivotal month in world affairs, with plenty of momentous turning points, historical events and announcements crowding the headlines. These included the election of Pope Francis, a move towards foreign intervention in the Syrian civil war by Western powers, the Cypriot banking crisis, a spate of weather ‘weirding,’… Continue reading Boris Berezovsky – Suicide or Murder?

Resignation of Pope Benedict

As befitted a month during which the Sun spent half its time in unpredictable Aquarius, February turned out to chock full of surprises.  These included the shock resignation of the Pope on February the 11th, the shooting of Paralympic champion, Oscar Pistorius’ girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp, in the early hours of Valentine’s Day, the downgrading of… Continue reading Resignation of Pope Benedict

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 September 2012

Cardinal T-squares and emotional crises, extremism, protests and speeches At the end of September, many of us found ourselves embroiled in emotional dramas, crises of conscience and calls for change as the Full Moon in Aries on the 30th made a conjunction to Uranus. As well as creating a polarising schism between our heads and our… Continue reading Astrological Review of September 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

Neptune, Venus and the Tragic Death of Whitney Houston

Last month, many of fans were taken aback by the shocking news of the sudden and mysterious death of the singer, Whitney Houston the day before the Grammy Awards in Los Angeles on February the 11th. Houston’s death was officially announced by her publicist as taking place at 15h55 LA local time in her suite at the Beverly Hilton Hotel and occurred after several… Continue reading Neptune, Venus and the Tragic Death of Whitney Houston

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
