Okay, I’m confused about this. What was I drinking/smoking? When I say Sun square Mars, it’s actually conjunct. And it’s Venus that conjuncts Mercury and opposes Saturn. I know. It was six years ago. I have no explanation. However the overall sentiment is the same. Bethenny Frankel is over. And really over because she doesn’t know it and is acting out. This is why we have humility. And why we have negative events in our lives — to bring us back to earth and keep our ego from spinning out-of-control. The meek (humble) will inherit the earth.

Below is my blog and the link will take you to the article in “The Daily Mail” about Bethenny and how her castmates are sick of her and a general synopsis of the meltdown. TheDailyMail

“You want to be Kim Kardashian, you want to be Katie Perry, but you don’t want to be Bethenny Frankel. It looks pretty fabulous now. But have you ever had the experience of thinking that someone had it all (Farrah Fawcett) and finding out they didn’t? Be careful what you ask for. I hear people on her daytime talk show, BETHENNY, saying they want to be her. No, you don’t.

Bethenny is a Scorpio Sun, Mercury, Venus, Jupiter, and Neptune — really really Scorpio. Her Moon is in the sign of Capricorn. And her Mars is in the sign of Libra. ‘nuf said.

Her recent cash infusion of $50 million dollars for her Skinny Margarita made the cover of FORBES magazine. It’s unusual for someone who is not in a positive Jupiter to bring in this kind of cash. But she had a partner, and I can only surmise the he was responsible for the windfall. But it hasn’t stopped her from taking all the credit and exploiting herself in every way possible including her reality show — not that it’s wrong, but really what does the future hold for people who expose their entire lives? Is there ever a backlash?

One possible answer is a lengthy period of negative aspects — which for Bethenny starts in 2016 (age 46) and lasts until 2025 (age 55) with a short respite when her predictive Mars conjuncts Jupiter until mid-2028 (age 58) when her predictive Sun squares Mars (the worst of the predictive aspects — it attacks anything that the ego depends on), predictive Sun square Uranus, Mars conjunct Mercury and Mars opposition Saturn. Whew! I’ve had more than my share of bad aspects, but never this many at once. But then, is Bethenny more spiritual than I was? Will she handle this better than I did? No one really knows, but the key is how much of her self worth is wrapped up in her fame and fortune. How much of this did she really earn? I was coming off a Jupiter period, and it felt like I hit a brick wall.

Sending good thoughts to Bethenny. Call me, Girl. Navigating this is going to be a  bitch tough.

If you watched the Oscars last year, you may recall the biggest mistake in Oscar history was when Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway announced the wrong Picture of the Year saying “La La Land” instead of “Moonlighting.” My reaction? I know Warren from a long time ago, and I was holding my breath that he didn’t make a “senior mistake.” Because I’ve been wondering why he is out of the public eye. Does he have Alzheimer’s? Or Parkinson’s? Believe me that has been on my mind for a long time.

I had a boyfriend that was an Aries with a Scorpio Moon and he was meaner than a rattlesnake. And that is true, the planets, of Warren. And believe it or not, they both have Virgo rising. Both are lightening smart and game players of the highest caliber. Warren, when I knew him, got angry with me, because I didn’t take him seriously. That pissed him off. I was much younger than him, and I just considered him to be a frivolous movie star. He would call me from his trailer while I was studying for college. I remember he knew that the enzyme for milk was lactase (had to look it up). I was impressed but not enough to revise my opinion until much later.

Warren is as smart as they come. And there is no reason to think he is senile. It turned out the Oscar mistake had nothing to do with him. He caught on very quickly as to what had really happened — they had been handed the wrong card. It was Faye Dunaway who read the Best Actress (clearly written on the card) for the Best Picture.

Currently Warren has just gone through progressed Sun square natal Saturn. And if he made it through that and can show up in front of millions of people at the age of 80, I give him much credit. That’s a stinker aspect for anyone at any age. And Saturn specifically has to do with health. Now I’m wondering about his wife, Annette Benning. Maybe I’m the one paranoid one?

Warren may you live forever. Sometime when I’m feeling more adventurous, I’ll tell you what happened between us, because it was very unusual. Let me just say, don’t get Warren Beatty mad at you.

Guns are ablazing literally and figuratively after the Parkland Florida school shooting which left 17 dead. It’s the women of The View versus Meghan McCain, a card carrying member of the NRA. The question, should we abolish AR-15 style rifles that have no use in civilian life? We don’t need them for hunting. Unless you want to blow an animal to bits? That’s sport? Whoopie was left today with smoke coming out of her ears when Meghan wouldn’t shut up and let her make her point before having to go to commercial. Joy stomped off and told one of the producers, “If she brings up her father (John McCain) again, I’m going to puke.” Will they fire her? Because they want to. The answer may surprise you.

Meghan is a Scorpio. Her birthday is right on the cusp, and I don’t have her time. But with her personality, she’s no Libra. A Scorpio Sun would give her 4 planets in Scorpio — a stellium (Saturn, Mercury, Pluto and the Sun). And Pluto conjunct the Sun, she takes no prisoners which is obvious in the way she talks. Keep in mind when planets conjunct, they all influence each other and you end up with a very complicated and difficult personality. Strangely her Moon is in Libra — the only reason she is civil at all. Mars is in Capricorn where it is exalted and creates an extremely ambitious person. And with Capricorn also rising, we know her childhood was no fairy tale. Meghan McCain is a force. And she isn’t backing down.

And she doesn’t have to. They’re not going to fire her no matter who she pisses off because she is currently just going out of a Jupiter period with Venus. And having also gotten married four months ago on this same aspect with the added fortune of her predictive Sun sitting right on her natal Venus, Meghan is golden for now — astrology says so. I would advise her to continue to drive the ladies nuts. It keeps the conversation going even if you think she’s a crazy bitch. And this is a conversation that needs to continue until our kids are safe.

So for the ones of us that want these ridiculous guns off the street, don’t look to Meghan to be your spokesperson. This is the aggravation of life. She and Trump have have the podium — astrology says so. There will always be people on the other side of the argument.

Two big events coming up: The students of Parkland are organizing “March for our Lives” on March 24th. Celebrities like George and Amal Clooney, Oprah Winfrey, and Steven Spielberg are donating money. We can donate our support.

Also Anna Deavere Smith has a special on HBO this Saturday called “Notes from the Field” an exploration of the school-to-prison pipeline in marginalized and underrepresented communities. The Parkland shooter would be one of these vulnerable (and mentally ill) kids that we kicked to the corner by throwing him out of school.

The big one is coming for Jen. It does make you wonder why certain people get it and others do not. It’s how your astrology chart sets up when you are born. Jennifer has, not only a Jupiter period, but a long one coming up. Her predictive Jupiter changed signs and aspected a planet in her natal chart (that doesn’t move). She will have twenty long years where things mostly go her way.

During this time, Jennifer can have pretty much anything that she wants — think Kardashian. Only don’t think Kardashian because my guess is that she will use it quite differently. Hopefully she will get some great scripts, but also with this kind of power, some charitable activity should be considered. And don’t forget money which she already has, well, more will come and with it more power.

Jennifer is an Aquarius Sun/Mercury. Her Moon is in Sagittarius, Mars in Scorpio and Venus in Aries. Her biggest challenge, if you want to call it that, is that there are no planets in the romance houses — the 5th, the 7th and the 8th. She cannot really wrap her head around making sacrifices for a man. You get the sense if you were in a relationship with her she might go through the romantic partnership motions, but she doesn’t connect, not with an individual anyway. And I get the sense she really has no big demons, so guys drop her. I mean you need some friction and trouble to make a partner enticing, and make you feel like you aren’t the only with warts and flaws. But just as well. With this kind of power she could do something that would change the world. No use getting all crazy over a relationship.

Far into the future between the ages of 54 to 56, her predictive Sun, Mercury and Venus will conjunct and I predict at that time, she will marry one more time — the last time. And she may meet someone who wants what she wants — a kindred soul. How perfect. Right? Well let me say JEALOUS!

Amy Schumer got married this Tuesday, the day before Valentine’s Day. She’s only known the guy a few months. Why do people get married so quickly? Yes, you guessed it. It’s in their astrology chart. I had this happen to me with just a three month cycle, and I meant it. I would have done it. Luckily the person I wanted to marry thought I was crazy. Certain aspects can make you romantically impulsive. The urge overtakes you. Astrology is energy. And you just want to do it. You understand the chance you are taking perfectly and want to do it anyway. You are willing to deal with the consequences. Many times it will be the best choice you’ve ever made, because there is some science behind it. And, of course, there are the times, even science can’t save you.

Amy is a Gemini Sun with Venus there. Geminis are very gregarious people with a gift for talking and taking advantage of their ability to amuse. As a fun-loving person, it’s easy to see why someone would be attracted to her. She lives in the moment and she doesn’t suffer fools lightly. Can she reach a spontaneous conclusion? Yes, and without a lot of weighing herself down with the negativity. She can add up the good and the bad and make a decision. And that’s what we do anyway. Maybe with a lot more to go on. But sometimes you just know. And sometimes you’re right.

Her Moon is exalted in Taurus which gives her an easy-going personality. With Mars conjunct, she no doubt has a grasp on the fiscal reality of such an impulsive thought. Taurus rules the 2nd House of Money. So likely she’ll make sure her money is secure. Mercury is in Cancer so she talks differently than she thinks — she has a instinctive ability to “know” her audience. Cancer feels everything. There are lots of trines between her Gemini Sun/Venus and her Jupiter/Saturn/Pluto remembering that Jupiter is the relating planet. And because her Mercury is in Cancer which squares those Libra planets, you can add a bit of a bite — which might be the thing that translates into comedy.

But what do her predictive planets say? Love is in the air. Her predictive Venus is sextile her Sun. And there we have it. A positive aspect between her Venus and really any other planet, and the Venus wants to play house. It won’t translate into marriage every time but if other things in the life do, and your partner is willing, it can. Also transiting Venus, the love planet, just crossed into her 7th House of Relationships. This is the perfectly romantic chart. And, of course, her hormones are flowing. Astrology is the energy that surrounds you. And it has everything to say about how you feel at any given time.

Will this last? Yes, it might and here’s the reason why. When you have that kind of an aspect, it draws to you people who fit — a person who you could love forever. It won’t always happen. It might be a person who is good enough. But it could. Why not? Something has to bring us together. I’m wishing them the best. Congratulations.

So we have a little cat fight between our “Sex and the City” girls, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kim Cattrall with Kim pretty much saying “Don’t call back — ever” and Sarah pouting like she couldn’t have done anything wrong.

Sarah Jessica Parker is an Aries with Venus and Mercury there. Aries are known for behaving like children and being a tad selfish while remaining amazingly likeable. But she also has a Capricorn Moon which, besides being in its detriment, squares the three planets previously mentioned. I’m so happy we have a woman with this characteristic, because all we seem to get are men — George, Johnny, Brad. It’s a very negative placement. And while I can never catch the men showing any signs of it although Brad does look a little beaten up. Sarah hasn’t looked happy in some time. She’s fully annoyed. And they are. Those Cap Moons. The qualities that make up a fully functioning person don’t exist in their world. So for all of you, like me, that have been fans of Sarah’s, take another look, because Kim is not entirely wrong. Sarah is currently in her new series on HBO, “Divorce.” Okay, I watch it just to see if all that goodie goodie Sex and the City still exists. What do you think? For a male Cap Moon, it means the women in their life take them down, but what is the corollary in women? I do predict success in her new series since, currently Sarah is in positive Jupiter.

Kim, on the other hand, is a show-off Leo. We’ve seen plenty of her. Next to her Sun is Pluto making control an important element of her personality and particularly when she perceives someone else as having more it of — a bit cranky. Ambition is the result of a focal planet so she put up with a lot to get what she wants. And that is as much of the reason she is quitting as anything — just over it. For some reason, I was never a big fan of Kim, but I do understand what she is talking about. It’s just so easy to be the victim of the mean girls if you don’t comply with their demands. And later they will be all whatever are you talking about? Now they want to be friends. Sorry, but this time I’m on Kim’s side, and it has changed my opinion of SJP.

So it looks like for now, the SATC party’s over. For us, too!

Nicole Eggert was on “The View” today with a pretty compelling case against Scott Baio her co-star on “Charles in Charge.” Just by the nature of this show, he was supposed to be her babysitter so he was older than her by more than was permissible for a sexual encounter. She claims he is a sexual predator. But what does his chart say?

The first thing you want to look for when determining what kind of person you are dealing with is, do they have any personal planets (Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars) that are in their fall or detriment? Scott does. It’s his Mars in Libra where the qualities of Libra don’t fit the planet Mars. These people tend, as you have heard me say so many times before, to be passive/aggressive. I find it interesting that he has a Pisces Moon as this is a very compassionate placement. Scott’s Sun is Virgo with Pluto conjunct. So we also know, he’s into control as Pluto’s sign is Scorpio and Scorpio is always into control and next to the Sun, well, the Sun is who you deep down are and a Virgo Sun Pluto conjunct is different than just a Virgo Sun alone. Do these things make him a bad person? No, not necessarily, but if he is, this is the starting point. Now take the evidence Nicole presented today and make your own decision. #Metoo.

This blog was first published on January 31, 2016. I was being really generous — not saying that likely Blac Chyna was using Rob because she’s trash. But truly didn’t we all wonder? Does a stripper suddenly become a soccer mom? She was just awarded $20,000 a month child support — which word on the street says is because she’s blackmailing the Kardashians due to her intimate knowledge (from Rob) of their exploits. That sounds about right since Rob cannot be funding this endeavor. So back to my prediction that even if all had gone much better, it wasn’t in the long run going to work. And just FYI Rob is once again sticking it to his family not forgetting there is a child involved. Rob get a job. Here is the original blog:

“Rob Kardashian, the youngest member of the Kardashian family, has a new girlfriend, Blac Chyna. There’s a bit of bad blood since she is also the former girlfriend and Baby Mama of Tyga, Kylie Kardashian’s current boyfriend. And somebody slept with somebody I’m not sure who or what. Are you keeping up? Sooooo is this interloper, Blac Chyna, just trying to piss off this famous reality family or is she for real?

Rob is a Pisces with a Pisces Mercury. He’s a sensitive guy. His Moon is in charming Libra so it’s unusual when he does anything controversial. His Venus is in the not-so-warm-and-fuzzy sign of Aquarius. He doesn’t fall in love easily. And with Venus as a focal planet he feels unloved and unlovable — which totally accounts for his 100 pound weight gain. He’s not the most confident person and to expand on that, his Venus placement makes him not all that trusting. So this is a big move for him. Is he making a mistake?

Blac Chyna is a Taurus which is Rob’s Mars placement. That’s good. It’s a connection. And Taurus (earth sign) and Pisces (water sign) are completely compatible. Blac, or do you call her Chyna, has her Moon in the sign of Pisces. So she’s a compassionate person — not all that interested in the reality of the situation. And Rob’s size? Probably doesn’t bother her at all. Pisces are like that. They’ll never hold superficial traits against you. And a Sun/Moon connection is another good thing. She also has the fortunate Sun/Jupiter conjunction so she fits right in with the always lucky (and Jupiter blessed) Kardashian clan. Her Venus is in the another air sign, Gemini. So these two may have a little problem believing in each other. But all couples have something they have to deal with. You can’t find a person with a perfect chart. It doesn’t happen.

I like these two together, but there’s a problem. Isn’t there always one? Currently Rob has his predictive Sun opposition his Moon — not a happy camper. And his predictive Venus (how you love someone) is square to his Saturn creating restrictions. Overall this isn’t the chart of a person who is going to find the love of their life. It doesn’t keep one from hooking up, but it does make it difficult to find love — because these negative aspects tend to make most of us cranky — especially when they aspect the Moon — your feelings.

Blac Chyna is also experiencing less than perfect timing. I wish we could just overcome this, but astrology is meant to tell you when to move forward and when to hold back. She has two squares: Her predictive Venus to her natal Moon and her predictive Mercury to her natal Moon. That’s a lot of lunur madness. Aspects to your Moon will make you emotional even if it’s not your natural inclination. Mercury could also bring her bad press. People will be inclined to see this as opportunistic — even if it’s not. And she’s dealing with Chris Jenner who, according to rumor, holds Rob’s purse strings. This is where Chyna’s iron will determination will serve her well. She won’t slink off.

But can these two make it as a couple? I’m going to say that the odds are against them. They have a lot to overcome. Eventually the aspects will change. But for now, they are the definition of a star-crossed couple. The timing isn’t right.

UPDATE: According to E: “He was so pissed at how she spoke to him, so he deleted everything about her to hurt her.” And apparently he has also called her on Snapchat “psycho bitch” and “crazy ass.” All for publicity or not looking good?

UPDATE2: August 18, 2016, Blac Chyna and Rob Kardashian now have a reality show which has not yet aired. THE DAILY MAIL posts, “…with the former exotic dancer confessing she’d still be working in a strip club if she hadn’t fallen for her beau.” Nice beginning.”

UPDATE3: Blac Chyna just received $20,000 a month in child support. December 2017.


Does she have the chart?

Oprah Winfrey is an Aquarius, my favorite sign — the most objective and humanitarian sign of all. In last night’s powerful Golden Globe speech, she called out the new catch phrase “Time’s Up” to all sexual predators. But it doesn’t stop there. The buzz today is that Oprah is considering a run for president. And we already know that a popular billionaire can be elected. But can this one?

Yes! Yes! Yes! Oprah has the astrology chart in 2020. She’s an Aquarius Sun/Mercury/Venus. Her focal planets are Mars (iron determination) and Saturn (ambition). With Aquarius in Venus, you will find strong interest in things other than relationships and family. I’ve dated a bunch and I will tell you they are a mountain you have to climb. But in the area of career, you can’t beat them. Her Moon is in the forthright sign of Sagittarius. Remember, “Think it. Say it.” And her Mars is in Scorpio — they take no prisoners.

In 2020, Oprah will have her predictive Sun sextiling Jupiter — the Jupiter chart where miracles happen. So seriously, if she wants it, she most likely can have it — depending who she runs against. But really? She’ll win. Right?

Those who read Xtrology knew that Steve Bannon was going to be in trouble. And sure enough, he was ousted from the Trump Whitehouse. However he still has his job at the website, Breitbart News. Or does he? It was reported in The Huffington Post today that a very powerful family, the Mercers, are not happy with him turning against the president. And in turn, Breitbart is considering firing him as executive chair. Well, that would spell disaster. So here’s the lesson. When your energy is that bad, stand down. Sometimes you just have to shut up. And as hard as that is for Sagittarius, even the most mouthy of us can do it when necessary. Get an astrology reading. Know where you stand. Sometimes you can get away with this stuff. Sometimes you can’t. Here’s my post from April 14, 2017:

“With this chart, I would be afraid to (Don’t Cross the Street). Seriously. Wow! There are bad charts and then there are bad charts.

Steve Bannon, Trump’s right hand man, and Jared Kushner’s nemesis, is a Sagittarius. That’s the end of the good stuff after his Moon in Leo. His Venus/Mercury are in Scorpio and Mars is debilitated in Libra. He has no focal planets. Focal planets focus you. And no earth planets. Earth grounds you. He flies around with no real consideration for reality. He has some very bazaar philosophies that don’t make much practical sense nor would it really matter to him. So you can see where he finds intermittent alignment with Trump. And you can also see where that can go very wrong.

Currently he has four predictive squares. That is a lot. I can’t remember a chart like this. His predictive Mars is squaring his natal and predictive Pluto. His predictive Sun/Mercury conjunction is squaring his Saturn and his predictive Mercury is squaring his natal Venus. This is so bad, it’s wicked. You would just want to find a cave and live in it. But he’s not in a cave. He’s in the White House! Of course. This is what has been so difficult to understand about the Trump presidency — the negativity. Normally people are put off by negativity — not drawn to it. Nothing good comes of this chart. Bannon can’t help himself or his country. Maybe we’ll get lucky, and he’ll leave. Maybe he’ll get lucky, and he’ll leave. Jesus take the wheel.

UPDATE: Bannon out at Breitbart. 1/9/18
