2015 UK Election Postmortem

After the surprising, even shocking results of the UK's May 2015 general election, culminating in the mandate for a clear Conservative majority government, I thought I should write a follow-up column to my election forecast for May the 7th. Who, for instance, would have thought that by lunchtime the day after the elections, three party leaders… Continue reading 2015 UK Election Postmortem

Could the astrology of AirAsia Flight QZ8501 provide clues to unlocking the mystery of MH370?

2014 has not been a great year for air travel. Since March, when Malaysia Air flight MH 370 went missing a few hours after take-off,  and still remains to be found,  we have witnessed a number of fatal accidents that have killed nearly 762 people so far this year, including another Malaysian Air flight MH17,… Continue reading Could the astrology of AirAsia Flight QZ8501 provide clues to unlocking the mystery of MH370?

Woolwich Massacre & the April 2014 eclipses

May was dominated by several major planetary events: a series of Neptune squares on the 13th, 18th and 26th, which coincided with misjudgements and travel accidents; another pass of the rather challenging Uranus-Pluto square on May the 20th, which corresponded with a devastating tornado in Oklahoma and an outbreak of rioting and civil unrest in… Continue reading Woolwich Massacre & the April 2014 eclipses

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

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 August 2012

Blue Moons, Pisces oppositions and storms, drownings and beachings During August, we experienced what’s known as a Blue Moon – two full moons in one month. This is largely because our calendric intervals and our lunar cycle do not perfectly overlap. As a result, for the first half of 2012, we have been experiencing Full… Continue reading Astrological Review of August 2012

Astrological Review of June 2012

June was Jubilee month for the UK. During June 3-6, the nation (plus many Commonwealth countries and well-wishers from around the world) celebrated the Queen’s diamond anniversary with a feast of memorable public events, including a Thames riverboat procession and a rock concert outside Buckingham Palace, along with numerous tea and garden parties. The festivities helped many people to… Continue reading Astrological Review of June 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 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
