 photo PartialSolarEclipse_zps783a640a.jpg

Our next and last eclipse of the year is a new Moon Solar Eclipse. But more news! The Sun just moving into Scorpio, Venus also just moving into Scorpio will be right there to meet up with the zero degree Scorpio Moon. This is called INTENSITY! And don’t forget Venus’ ability to bring out jealous possessive behaviors. Oh, yes, this is what you should watch for. And mind you, as much as you might want to misbehave during this time, you will not succeed. This is because eclipse eclipse. They take away. It’s there, then it’s gone. Poof!

TOTAL ECLIPSE OF THE MOON

 photo 3073653d-2c81-4436-be05-e6305e2072e6_zps4944965d.jpg

It happens October 8th, 2014 at 15 degrees Aries 7 minutes. That may sound a little technical, but it’s important because the eclipse only affects people with planets in Libra or Aries within four degrees of fifteen degrees — that is Libra between 11 and 19 degrees and Aries between 11 and 19 degrees. Some astrologers believe it can also square you which would be planets in the sign of Cancer and Capricorn between those degrees. I haven’t decided if squares work, but I wouldn’t rule them out.

You may remember the Grand Cardinal square that we’ve dealt with over the last two years. It was focused on those same degrees and those are the Cardinal signs. So if you were affected by the Grand Cardinal Square, this eclipse could also be hitting you.

It is interesting to note that Uranus on October 8th is 14 degrees Aries 31 minutes so the eclipse is right on top of Uranus. That will add a dimension of difficulty. Eclipses eclipse or take something away. And Uranus is not so shabby at doing that itself. You who are affected may face a minor crisis. Because the eclipse is a function of the Moon and the Moon is the weakest planet in astrology, the event that takes place in your life could be upsetting but should not be life altering. Inconvenience is a definite possibility.

If the eclipse falls on one of these planets in your chart what areas might be affected:

Sun, yourself,  father,  children
Moon, home, feelings, mother, women in general
Mercury, communication, brother & sisters, short travel
Venus, people you love,  beauty, can be money
Mars, cars, violence, guns, energy
Jupiter, money, excess, the law
Saturn, father, people in authority, work, health
Uranus, the Internet, anything electrical, sudden events, nerves
Neptune, drugs, deception, bodies of water
Pluto, people in power, surgery, other people’s money, your unconscious

The house (if you have the time of birth) the eclipse falls in is also important. If it’s in the:

1st, yourself, your body
2nd, money, things you value
3rd, communication, short trips, brothers or sisters
4th, home, family, mother
5th, children, creative projects, gambling
6th, health, work, small animals
7th, relationships, partnerships
8th, other people’s money, psychic experiences, surgery, death
9th, higher education, foreigners, foreign travel, religion
10th, career, the government, father
1th, friends, important people, wishes & dreams
12th, hospitals, prisons, karma, behind the scenes

MY PICK TO REPLACE JOAN RIVERS

 photo a9e012e2-3d9e-474e-bb38-2dfdd3461d5b_zpsb14d233c.jpg

Joan Rivers recently left us for a better place and left her hugely successful show, “Fashion Police” without a host. There’s talk the show won’t continue. It’s Hollywood. The show goes on.

Chelsea Handler must be reeling from her decision to leave “E” now that this juicy spot is opening. Her new show on Netflix doesn’t start until 2016 with only a few specials between now and then. Twelve lucky years of Jupiter is over (she gets still another Jupiter period in March 2015), but right now she’s kicking herself. I first noticed Chelsea when she did one-liners for “E” biographies. She hasn’t been that funny since. With “Fashion Police,” she would have been back in her element although she’ll say she didn’t want it.

Kathy Griffin seems to be making a huge bid to take Joan’s spot. She’s everywhere bemoaning Joan’s fate. Astrologically, she’s in the perfect position with predictive Mercury conjunct her natal Jupiter. Kathy is a Scorpio with Neptune/Mercury conjunct. Add to that Scorpio rising and you cannot overlook a need for control. She’s a powerhouse, but might just put off her co-stars, because there’s not a lot of “co” in her need to be a star.

I like Margaret Cho, a Sagittarius with Sagittarius rising. She rivals Joan in her ability to scorch the earth. However, the timing’s off for her.

Sandra Bernhard is born two days from Joan’s birthday so both are Gemini. And she has Joan’s Sagittarius Moon and acid tongue. And she, like Kathy, is in the favorable Jupiter period with her predictive Jupiter conjunct her predictive Sun and Mercury. The show would succeed with her energy.

Out of the people I’ve looked at, I would pick Sandra. But Kathy would be fine, too. Let’s see what “E” and Melissa Rivers, Joan’s daughter and the producer of the show, come up with. And you, any thoughts?

TAYLOR/PERRY FEUD WRONG/RIGHT?

 photo 98b6dd47-1707-401f-baae-b034415d0b6b_zpsccf7e816.jpg

This one is easy. These two girls are different on so many levels.

Taylor is Sagittarius with her Moon in Cancer, it’s ruler. She has a Capricorn stellium (much like Brad Pitt also a Sadge). No focal planets. Her goals are simple. Not ruthless or cunning in the conventional sense.

Katy Perry is a Scorpio with five planets (including her Moon in its detriment) and her nodes there. Also no focal planets Holy Cow! This girl is deep and passionate. But come on. Don’t mess with anyone highly Scorpio. They take no prisoners.

Katy’s still in that magical Jupiter period while Taylor has predictive Sun conjunct Saturn so her “all that” world has slowed a bit. But still she’s holding her own in this feud. Katy can be brilliant and toxic at the same time. She eats men for lunch. Taylor is much more the viewer — taking life in and digesting it slowly. Both have jammed up planets within a few houses. So each is FOCUSED. Taylor’s predictive Mercury is sextile her natal Venus. Look for her to actually fall in love. And if she doesn’t? What’s up with that?

This is simply the case of two people from opposite female emotional worlds. And the reason it’s sometimes hard to like woman. They’re both successful. What the hey?

EVEN GEORGE CLOONEY FALLS IN LOVE!

 photo 53c83359-280f-40fa-ab55-e99a5b89040d_zps2fecafa3.jpg

We’re all holding our breath waiting for the marriage between super- movie star George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin, lawyer, human rights activist. That would The George Clooney who has said marriage is just not for him. Is there a special time when these die hard bachelors are vulnerable? Why, yes there is. Read on.

George is Taurus, so stubborn we, in astrology, call it fixed. Mercury conjunct. His Mars is in the entertainment sign, Leo. Venus is in adventurous Aries. His Moon is in the difficult sign of Capricorn where, in its detriment, it operates badly. These men tend to marry up as women are their downfall. (Another example is Brad Pitt leaving Jennifer Aniston for Angelina Joile.) They’re looking for the woman who can eat them alive. Add to that five focal planets (one or more planet squared by two or more opposing planets) and he is trouble — seems nice — trouble behind the scenes.

Amul is Aquarius. She is one of the two signs square to him. Never, and I do mean never, are these marriages entered into for the right reasons — that being you can’t imagine your life without this person. Square (90 degree) energy is like fingernails on a chalkboard, literally. It’s not the big things.  The little things will get on your one last nerve always, eventually.

She also has her Venus in the sign of Aquarius. I know this combo well. I adore Aquarius. But when Venus is also in that sign you run into really chilly people. They can freeze you out like a Sub Zero. Her Moon is in Sagittarius so she can also speak her mind, do the dirty deed and walk away. Her one focal planet is Uranus — which is more Aquarius and more ability to shut down her feelings. Well done, George.

George currently has predictive Venus conjunct Mercury so he hit one of the few times in his life he is vulnerable to love thoughts. Amal has predictive Venus conjunct predictive Mercury. How cute! They both believe they’ve found the one who fulfills the reason they want to get married — however incompatible they really are.

An interesting predictive aspect for George is a Yod, often called the Finger of Fate (one or more planet inconjuncted by two or more sextiling planets). In George’s case, it is Jupiter. I’m not incredibly familiar with this aspect, but here is what Bil Tierney says about it, “His expectations almost always fall short of their promised potential and usually because he tends to…over reach… a period in his life where he is ready to drop a former belief or long-held ideology. Tolerance will be required…(a pilgrimage of sorts)…with fateful consequences brought upon by… own self-aggrandizement.” Aren’t we surprised by how public George has allowed this to be — with a VOGUE cover on its way?

I also predict this union will produce a child since both of them have a positive Venus aspect. This child will be loved. And it could be the ulterior motive behind George’s change of mind.

So, yes, this should go forward and look like a spectacular match. But, no, it will not last.

JOAN RIVERS YOU LIKE HER BUT WHY?

 photo JoanRivers_zps8e51e15b.jpg

No water signs except her Pluto. She’s not that sensitive. Don’t go to her when you have a problem. It’s not like gentle Pisces. Quite the opposite. Joan Rivers is a Gemini with Mercury and Venus in these cool air signs. Three planets in Virgo (in her Sixth — workaholic) square all her Gemini planets and her Sagittarius Moon giving her three focal planets:  Mars the bulldozer, Jupiter the cultist, and Neptune seeing things however you please.

The biting, what some people call, wit. That would be her Sagittarius Moon — cuts all the way with no mercy. And intelligence? She has an abundance of that. Great memory, too.

Today, the real question is, is she going to die? Nope. Not today. Transiting Saturn is conjunct Mars trining her natal Pluto. And her predictive Moon is square the Sun (the shortest of the predictive aspects). It’s not enough to kill the old bag. I say that in her honor!

UPDATE:  Joan Rivers died on September 4th. And, yes, I was wrong. Possibly I didn’t take her age enough into consideration. Is there any chance this isn’t her birthday? Could she have wanted this ending? Possibly more will come out. But let me say, rest in peace, Joan. Wish I had been correct.

MAGI ASTROLOGY DOES IT WORK?

 photo 558cc1ba-bacb-44ae-a8cc-cdcb1efd8f81_zps5b50fec8.jpg

I have a client/friend who is all up into Magi Astrology. But I didn’t have time to thoroughly check it out — until today when I noticed it on http://www.7thunders.com/, Robert Camp’s site for his book, “Destiny Cards.” I  know his system of prediction as Sacred Symbols dating back to the Egyptian period. And I use it in addition to astrology because it definitely has merit.  Robert Camp has written the definitive book. I totally recommend it. However, I also noticed some affiliation with Magi Astrology on his site. I do not know what  the connection is to him, but it made me curious if this system of prediction works.

Magi brags they are “the world’s largest and wealthiest astrological organization.” Their example to prove their theory is the night Monica Lewinsky first had sexual contact with Bill Clinton, the President of the United States, at the time. Magi Astrology has some cute terminology that I wish I had thought of. But here’s the problem. According to them, Monica was in a double Cinderella period that night. Didn’t Cinderella live happily ever after?

Monica is a Leo with Venus also in Leo and two natal focal planets (a square planet to two opposing planets) her Moon in Taurus (which is fixed so that as the focal planet the feelings are overly sensitive — despite its exaltation in Taurus  – but held in). The second focal planet is Mercury defined as someone who isn’t in touch with what motivates them and a very critical nature. Mercury is your reputation so in a negative aspect, it is slander and gossip — among the other things it rules.

The night in question Monica had predictive Venus (using Xtrology’s method of prediction based on secondary progressions — for sure not the largest or wealthiest) sextile (good) her natal Mercury. Any positive aspect to Venus will cause a person to fall in love. And she did.

Unfortunately, her natal Saturn had gone out-of-sign to square predictive and natal Pluto from the 9th House of  Law to the 12th House of Karma. Ouch! This aspect will last a long time. Her predictive Mercury was opposition predictive Jupiter– things getting overblown, and, again, Jupiter AKA the 9th House of Law.  Her predictive Mars was inconjunct natal Pluto — two planets that can create havoc. If that wasn’t scary enough, the transiting Neptune and Uranus were opposition her natal Mercury keeping in mind natal Mercury is already problematic. Her little Venus aspect didn’t stand a chance.

But you decide. Is this Cinderella times two or is this a nightmare to infinity?

MARIAH HANG ON TO NICK CANNON

 photo 8950147a-364a-4b10-8154-cf62b7fded77_zps41741879.jpg

It’s just been announced song bird Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon are getting a divorce. They’re been married since 2008 and have fraternal twins, Moroccan and Monroe. The gossip says that Mariah is over Nick’s many entertainment gigs that take him away from the family — when money is not much of a point due to her vast wealth.

Mariah is being a complete bitch. She’s an Aries, childish and insecure, with Mercury and Venus there. No focal planets. Moon in forthright Sagittarius. Mars in determined Taurus. Nick is a laid back Libra with Moon conjunct. It is most likely that Mariah’s Cancer rising (assuming I have the correct date and apparently there are mixed reports) is causing Nick to grate on her nerves. Square energy (90 degrees) does that. Sun to Sun they are fine, but other things in a chart can cause descent.

But here’s the rub. Nick’s astrology chart is taking off.  He has good naturedly put up with a lot of criticism regarding his much more successful wife, but tides do turn. This is an example of that. Mariah is wickedly close to being an old hag and Nick’s career is taking flight. A word to Mariah. He’s a valuable asset. Don’t push him away right now or do so at your own peril.

Mariah has predictive Venus conjunct predictive Mars. She’s cranky. Nick has out-of-sign Jupiter conjunct his Saturn for another 3 years — career zooming.  Also Venus conjunct his Sun. He’s in love with someone. I surmise it might not be Mariah due to her current harsh temperament. And his predictive Mars is conjunct Neptune so he’s fast and loose with the truth due to his passive/aggressive (Libra) nature and lack of skill dealing with anger.

Yes, they’re getting a divorce. It’s a mistake for Mariah. Money does not buy you happiness. Your man being successful?  Oh yeah.

UPDATE:  ”Nick Cannon is the one who decided to bail on his marriage — not Mariah – sources connected with the couple tell TMZ. Nick has made it clear to all involved … he’s deeply concerned about Mariah’s emotional state and is ending the marriage for the well being of their kids. He believes the environment around Mariah is toxic and fears for his kids.” This is just a bad aspect. But when it’s happening to you, you feel like the whole world is against you. And sometimes you’re right. Spiritual people handle it better than others and people that have me as their astrologer, of course! Read more: http://www.tmz.com#ixzz3BEHbfbGE

ROBIN WILLIAMS IT WASN’T EASY

 photo 149eac6c-3fde-420c-b2be-a54de124519f_zpsf9822d97.jpg

Robin Williams, the brilliant actor, who starred in “Good Will Hunting,” “Mrs. Doubtfire,” and “Awakenings” died today from suicide. So what brings a person to this tragic ending?

Robin Williams was a sensitive Cancer Sun with Mars and Uranus there, too. He had three focal planets:  Sun (narcissistic tendencies), Mars (uber determined) and Uranus (marching to his own drummer). The thing that killed him? His also sensitive water sign Pisces Moon. With Pisces in the first five personal planets, addiction is a strong possibility. Pisces’ planet is Neptune, and it rules all chemicals. It’s also the escapist sign. And Robin had battled addiction.

We’ve all been there — thinking that life is not worth living. But Robin had been there since 2007 with one of the most difficult aspects in the Xtrology method of prediction. He had predictive Mars (rips your life/ego into little pieces) sitting on his natal and then his predictive Pluto (death). It had actually passed but stayed on to conjunct his natal Mercury — so it wasn’t over. And it is the nastiest planet in predictive astrology. I wish he had known that the darkness would not last another year. Life would have lightened up. It would not have seemed so hopeless. It was a huge karmic trial — a long ordeal. He was so close. Rest in peace.

CHARLIZE & SEAN IS IT LOVE?

 photo 7d435d11-dbc0-437c-a9ed-1c922872b12b_zps19d17ca4.jpg

Charlize Theron, (“A Million Ways to Die in the West”) the beautiful Amazonian actress, is living with Sean Penn, Madonna’s and Robin Wright’s (“House of Cards”) ex. Her friends are telling her to bail out fast. But what does Xtrology think?

Charlize is a Leo Sun/Moon. Loves being in the limelight. Loves Hollywood. She has one focal planet, Saturn, so she’s highly ambitious. Her Venus is in Virgo as is her Mercury.

Sean Penn is a Leo Sun/Mercury. His focal planets are Venus (nobody loves me) and Pluto (all about the right and wrong). The first one is the most tricky and why he can be a pill. His Venus is in Virgo, like hers, conjunct Pluto. Love is heavy.

Nothing really so bad about this. They’re a lot alike. Possibly too much. But for now they’re mirror images of each other.

She is in the fortunate predictive Venus trine Jupiter so marriage is on the menu no doubt. He has predictive Mars sextile Venus. Ditto. However, a little Sean bashing will happen with his predictive Mercury squaring his natal Mercury. He’s got enough Leo ego to deal with that.

Yes, they will marry. And it will be a very happy union until it isn’t (because the planets moved).
