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 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

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

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
