This really makes me mad. There are ten doctors, tied to corporate interests, who are trying to remove Dr. Oz from the faculty of Columbia University because of his support of alternative medicine and the labeling of GMO’s. Where do I start? Freedom of speech? Un-American? Unethical? Which, by the way, they are calling him.

Dr. Oz is a Gemini with Venus conjunct. And with Mars as a focal planet, he’s going to shove it down your throats for your own good!

Right now his chart is okay, but in one year, his predictive Mars will square Pluto. Not good at all. Someone around him could die. Mars (in a negative aspect) always calls for your life to be shaken and stirred. Help support the riddance of The Dark Act which will allow the federal government to tell states how to label food i.e. no GMO labeling!!! We need to get this done fast. On his site, sign his petition. You can still eat GMO’s, you’ll just know they’re in there.

I saw an item today about Patrick Dempsey, longtime star of “Grey’s Anatomy” possibly getting fired for his diva behavior. Well, let’s see…

Patrick Dempsey is a Capricorn with Mercury conjunct. No focal planets. Moon in charming Libra. But his Venus and Mars are conjunct. And in the sign of Aquarius which is a bad, cold, uncaring placement for Venus anyway. And again conjunctions are special. The planets take on the characteristics of the other planets. Which means in this case, his Mars will have Venus or Libra qualities (Venus’ ruler) and Mars in Libra is the worst. Absolutely the worst. Run. They will not have your back. They are passive/aggressive to the max. It’s in it’s detriment. Planets in their detriment behave badly. I, personally, have never found this guy sexy at all. And this is not a sexy placement. Good looking guy, but not sexy. And didn’t he marry a much older manager way back when? I’m guessing for the wrong reasons. He would.

And isn’t he getting a divorce? Yeah. Kick him to the corner.

So what’s his future? With his predictive Sun conjunct Saturn (work), I would not make any bets on his next job.

I’ve been looking for something really juicy. And last night on RHBH, I saw something that blew my mind. #KimRichards of “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” is losing it. And not just the semi-scripted stuff. She’s off her rocker. Want to know why?

Kim is a Virgo with a Virgo stellium (four planets in that sign, Mercury, Uranus and Pluto). Dying to read Donna Cunningham’s book on the subject. It will be brilliant how each of those planets influence the others due to sitting on top of each other. But here’s what tells the tale: Kim has a Grand Square making all the planets in it, focal planets. That means Venus (no one loves me and I’m not lovable) and Mars (willful to the max), Moon (already in Pisces and sensitive now sensitive to the max), Saturn (ambitious), Jupiter (needs to be part of a group), and Neptune (sees things the way she wants to see them and a propensity to addiction). Whew! She’s trouble. Or at the very least difficult. But what I kept seeing last night was lying and twisting to make stories fit her needs. She chopped her sister, #KyleRichards, down like a cherry tree.

And if that’s not bad enough, here’s her predictive chart: Her predictive Mars (your life in a Cuisinart) is opposing her natal Moon (already sensitive and now over-the-top sensitive and with Mars, angry), both being squared by predictive Mercury (her reputation which in my mind she’s blowing on every level).

The only thing good that going to come of this, well, reality TV will love her, but in the future she has a Venus aspect so let’s see if she can get it together enough to fall in love with a good man who gets her out of the public eye until this hurricane blows over and the public doesn’t end up hating her.

Hillary Clinton, former First Lady, former Secretary of State announced yesterday she is running for president of The United States. While she is the presumptive Democratic candidate, could she win the election in 2016? Let’s see what Xtrology says.

Hillary has a Scorpio Sun, Venus and Mercury. There is no such thing as a wallflower Scorpio. Her rising sign (which brings out the worst qualities of the sign) is Gemini so one might anticipate a certain degree of untruthfulness — actually as asset for most politicians. Because her Mars in the sign of Leo, it squares her Scorpio planets. Hillary must make enemies. She’s not soft and malleable. She’s a bit of a bulldozer with most of her planets negatively aspected. Her focal planet, and this is a little surprising, is the Moon which makes it very, very sensitive. And it’s in the sign of Pisces which is already very sensitive. So there is compassion there. We don’t see it much. But it’s got to be in there somewhere.

Currently Hillary has her predictive Sun and Mercury squaring her Neptune. And it will still be doing that at the time of the election. The Sun squaring Neptune is someone is lying to you. And Mercury squaring Neptune is your reputation is in worse shape that you believe it to be. I think Hillary has lived in the rarefied “yes” world for too long. She’s believing her own publicity.

An example of that would be that she used a private email server and not the one provided for her by the government. And then she deleted the emails she doesn’t want people to see — not following protocol and not caring. I also call this baggage. And she has quite a bit of it.

Her predictive planets say that she will not be the next president. She may be the candidate, but that could change also. The only way she’ll win is the other candidate having a worse chart. This is when the system doesn’t work. She is not the best candidate for The Democratic Party. And besides, she’s already made a huge mark in the world — giant steps for women, too. Astrology says save yourself this headache.

UPDATE: “MAUMEE, Ohio — The 25-year-old who cooked the chicken that went into the burrito bowl Hillary Clinton ordered at the Chipotle here on Monday makes $8.20 an hour and splits rent with two roommates. The 29-year-old general manager used to work three jobs and now is thrilled to be able to have just this one. Hillary didn’t leave a tip.” Read more: http://www.politico.com/story/2015/04/the-everyday-people-who-made-hillary-clintons-lunch-117018.html#ixzz3XVAhwmmy

If you’ve seen the docudrama, “Going Clear,” you probably are wondering what’s up with Tom Cruise. Rumors have been circling around him for ages, but seeing him in this movie sort of puts some of that to rest. Does astrology have the answer to why…

Tom Cruise has a Cancer Sun. And while that’s bad enough, they’re all incredibly sensitive, it really isn’t his problem at all. This guy has seven focal planets. That’s simply too much negativity in the natal chart to make it easy to get through the day. I give him credit for his amazing career, but I do believe at home he’s impossible. Focal planets are the result of two planets opposing each other and another planet squaring them both. But when you have a Grand Square, like Tom, all those planets become focal planets because they all square and oppose each other.

He has Mercury (verbal abuse), Moon (hypersensitivity, but in his case fixed so he holds it in), Venus (unloved and unlovable), Mars (willful to the max), Saturn (highly ambitious), Uranus (unpredictable, odd, kinky), and Neptune (seeing things the way you want to see them). You simply can’t be a “normal” person with all this to contend with. And no doubt Cruise is extraordinary in many ways. The only true way to deal with such complexities is to become extremely spiritual. I think with Scientology he tried. But it’s way off the mark.

Currently he has his predictive Sun crossing over predictive Uranus. So while this publicity can’t be a complete surprise, the fact this movie is the #1 grossing docudrama and so many people are aware of the multitude of Scientology human right violations, he’s in an uncomfortable position. Uranus is the planet you will find when an accident is about to happen or just something so incredible none other than eccentric Uranus could represent it. See the movie. You’ll see what I mean. He’ll be forever connected to this strange “religion.” And he really needs to break away and take a stand. Uranus could help him do that.

#RobKardashian just came out on Twitter with the quote, ““This is my sister kim, the bitch from Gone Girl…” And he posted a picture of #RosamundPike in bloody lingerie. If you know the story of “Gone Girl” then you know the woman in the story is a complete psycho.

Rob is a gentle-hearted Pisces who seems to have had enough with all the Hollywood glitter and the massive amounts of money spent on such things as Kim and Kanye’s wedding. His Moon is in Libra so it’s unusual for someone like him to make these over-the-top statements. Rob has one of the hardest focal planets to deal with, focal fixed Venus. It’s the I’m not loved or lovable one. So he has his own issues, and they’ve shown up in a great deal of excess poundage. He tends to be very fixed in his opinions and really doesn’t care much for compromise. He will also tend to emotionally hang on to a relationship that is frustrating rather than risk the fear of initiating a new one. He prefers things to come to him with little effort.

The good news? He’s in positive Jupiter. So he can get a grip on his insecurity and get back to a place he likes himself better. The bad aspects remain, but he’s protected. And this explains his lack of fascination with his sister. He has predictive Venus square natal Saturn. He’s unhappy with loved ones. and he has predictive Sun opposition Moon. His feelings are hurt. Now has the strength to voice his opinions. So he is. And how. #optout

Did you know that a chart can have a missing element: Fire, Earth, Air or Water? It’s rare, but if it happens as it does in Edward Snowden’s chart, it’s important.

Edward Snowden is a Gemini, Sun, Mercury and Mars. His rising sign is also Gemini. So already we know he has a lot of air. His Pluto and Saturn are in Libra — also air. That’s five of ten planets in air. He has no focal planets. And his Moon is in telling Scorpio. Don’t mess with Moon in Scorpio. It’s not a happy placement. The Moon (your emotions) are always close to the surface. Ready to rumble. With no earth (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn), he flies around the sky with nowhere to land. He needs earth planets to grasp material things, to be grounded.

Briefly, Snowden worked for the CIA and disclosed NSA documents and has been charged with two counts of violating the Espionage Act by The United States. He currently has temporary assylum in Russia.

But what’s really going on with him? At the time of his disclosure, his astrology chart shows he was extremely dissatisfied with his work due to his predictive Sun (him) squaring (90 degrees negative) Saturn (work). But he also had predictive Mars (his energy) in a trine (120 degrees positive) his Moon (his feelings). So what did he do? He did something about his unhappiness. What so many others of us, held down by family, friends, a house, a dog, don’t do. We suck it up. He didn’t.

You’ve no doubt heard the story. Brian Williams, the NBC anchor, fibbed a little about his experience in Iraq — it was the helicopter in front of him that got hit by ground fire not his helicopter. There appears to be other lies and exaggerations. Always look to Neptune to see if you’re dealing with a liar.

Brian has natal Neptune opposition his natal Taurus Sun. So there you have it. Yes, he doesn’t let the truth get in his way. If you read my blog, you know how strongly I feel about focal planets (the result of planet squaring two opposition planets). His focal planets are Uranus (not all that conventional at heart — a little rebellious), the Moon (overly emotional even in the absence of water planets) and, here’s the big one, Mercury. Mercury as a focal planet has to do with the way you communicate. Focal planets are the result of negative aspects. Most of the time, I find that people with this are verbally abusive. But people process information differently. We still can assume his communication skills are flawed — some way, somehow.

Brian’s daughter, Allison (Aries Sun) , who is currently on the HBO hit “Girls” and who also did “Peter Pan Live!” on television and slammed it, is partly the result of some really terrific aspects that started around the age of fourteen. When Jupiter, looking at a chart, is on the left of your Sun and in another sign, the Sun will cross it as the Sun moves counterclockwise. Predictive Jupiter moves also (which is why it is predictive) and the predictive Sun then also crosses it. It’s a great way to get your life started. Jupiter (in a good aspect) gives you tremendous confidence.

And here’s why I mention it. Brian currently has predictive Venus (your loved ones) square (90 degrees and a bad angle) his Jupiter (to some degree public perception, but definitely your social life). I think Brian is jealous of Allison. He is the one that is normally in the spotlight — not her. I’m not saying he’s a bad person, but I am saying he’s human. And while fathers shouldn’t be jealous of their daughters, that’s my opinion of what’s going on here.

The big question is, will he lose his $10 million anchor job? He might not even though he really should. The two planets in this negative configuration are both nice planets — not malefic. But I will tell you that it will hurt his relationship with Allison, because she knows. Deep down she knows he resents her success. And he may really wish he had her career and not his. The news may be a little tame for him.

I’ve heard rumors he might be considered for Jon Stewart’s job at “The Daily Show.” Actually, he’s a funny guy, he already reads the news, and truthfulness would not be a big issue. But, I don’t think these aspects will reward him. If for some reason, he lands on his feet, still, there will be some fallout. It’s not a get-out-of-jail-free card, you know, the one he’s been playing for years.

I looked at this months back when Bruce Jenner announced he would not be returning to “Keeping Up with the Kardashians.” (Although I’ve read he will come back another year.) I wondered if all the gossip were true.

Normally for a transitioning man, you would check for a negative Jupiter aspect in the natal chart showing that there is an over-idealization of the feminine principle. His is opposition Uranus and square Mercury/Neptune. Uranus being part of that T-square points to relating (Jupiter is the relating principle) in an unusual way. Bruce is a Scorpio with Scorpio rising, and they do have their little secrets. Another clue is no planets in the relationship houses, the 5th, the 7th and the 8th. He’s had a few marriages and divorces. Is there a hindrance to him forming long-lasting relationships in a traditional manner?

This I do know. Bruce is going through some really tough aspects. First his predictive Venus opposed Pluto. Venus is people you love and Pluto is all about transformation. He and his wife, Chris, are getting a divorce. Then along comes predictive Mars (the worst of the worst) to square predictive Uranus (the most rebellious of all the planets). So he’s definitely experiencing negative energy. He, no doubt, isn’t very happy with his life right now.

If he does decide to transition to womanhood, this is the wrong time. I advise my clients, “Don’t make life altering changes when the energy isn’t on your side. It doesn’t always produce the results you’re looking for.”

UPDATE: Bruce Jenner had a car accident on PCH Highway in California where he rear-ended a woman causing her car to spin into oncoming traffic. She is dead. Mars also rules cars and Uranus accidents. Square to each other, they are extremely negative aspects. I did not predict the aspect would play itself out with a death, but if Bruce had been a client of mine, I would, absolutely, have advised him to be careful driving a car and especially one with a trailer behind it.

Ever wonder why someone is so successful and someone else is not? Okay, Rhianna is beautiful and talented, but is she really the most beautiful and talented or is there an X-factor, like, for example, Xtrology? Oh, yes.

Rhianna is a Pisces Sun with Mercury in Aquarius. She’s dreamy, romantic, cares about humanity — overall a nice girl. But 40 million Twitter followers? There’s more to it than that. It isn’t her Moon and Venus in Aries. And it isn’t her Mars in Sagittarius. With no focal planets, she’s simple. It doesn’t take a lot to make her happy. So how did Rhianna become Rhianna?

According to Wiki, “In late 2004, her four-song demo tape was distributed to several labels, including Def Jam Recordings.” Also in late 2004 her natal Jupiter changed signs (which allows it to make aspects) and trined her low degree Neptune and Uranus! And the magic started happening. She’s 100% a result of Jupiter. It’s all long term luck. Most of us will get it at some time in our lives — and not everyone makes it work on this level. But you won’t have this success without it.

The key — positioning yourself so that when it does come, you’re ready to take advantage of it. But first it helps to know when it is.

But like most mortals, Rhianna will lose this favorable long term Jupiter. The pendulum always swings. Hers will adjust November 27, 2016 when once again those two conjunct planets will get hit. This time by the predictive Sun, and this time in a negative aspect — the dreaded square. Her life will take a turn for the worse then, and she won’t see it coming. This is her normal state — for everything to go her way. It’s very difficult when the energy changes and there is bad news.

It is possible to ride through these negative aspects. Although a negative event usually will happen. But that is the nature of life, the ups and downs. It’s just that when you don’t see it coming, it can be shocking.
