Beyonce has a Virgo Sun. But there’s a bigger story. She has six planets in Libra — Mercury, Saturn, Jupiter, Venus and Pluto — and Libra rising. So she’s very Libra. Her Moon in Scorpio can also tend to dominate a chart as it is in it’s fall and ruled by the big guy, Pluto. This is a complicated woman with a huge agenda that she is fully capable of carrying out. And despite the fact that she is square (90 degrees) to her husband’s Sun in Sagittarius, she has managed to keep this relationship working. But you better believe that she is jealous and vindictive (Scorpio Moon) and doesn’t want the public to find out (all that Libra). It’s a secret. At least it was until her sister had a meltdown in an elevator over Becky with the good hair. And don’t forget “Lemonade.”

So I am surprised to find out she is having two more children with this man who appears to have cheated. But, again, back to the agenda and her astrology chart which says, IT IS TIME! Her predictive Venus (love, anyone you love) is trine (120 degrees, harmonious) to her Mars (energy). She’s definitely ready and in the mood for loving more children. I’m just hoping she loves her man, but that, too, could be very pleasant at this time. Long run — not so much.

What really doesn’t make sense? That picture. In a bra, with a veil. Hideous?

We need to talk. Yes, I was wrong that Trump would be a candidate for President of The United States. There were enough people in the Republican Party with Jupiter charts to easily take the nomination. That didn’t happen. As far as the presidency, neither he or Hillary Clinton had a good chart, and someone had to win. I said she would squeak . And in the popular vote, she did. But Donald Trump was sworn in as president due to our Electoral College.

There are many people claiming he is already in violation of many laws and there are a zillion articles to explain it. What I want to concentrate on is astrology. Being wrong about his candidacy is still a huge question mark. Astrology isn’t wrong. He has a negative chart with the emphasis on his reputation sliding off a cliff. For me, this is happening. He is not the person I thought he was. The question I can’t answer is why did people vote for a person with a negative chart? Why did he become the candidate?

But let’s look at the bigger picture. Trump’s next aspect is scary. The president has a positive Jupiter aspect on June 1st. This protects you against the law — against legal problems. So to put it bluntly, if he is a threat to our great society, there are a little more than five months to remove him from office. Otherwise we will have a man governing our land that is, many people believe, unfit.

Xtrology is the timing of the events in your life. Xtrology needs a voice when the stakes are this high. I have written my blog for over 7 1/2 years to prove that my system works. If you’re one of those people that believe Trump should not be president. Get on it. Don’t take you time.

I found the most fascinating You Tube video in which Keith Olbermann explains the 25th Amendment of the Constitution, Section 4– if you’re interested. Then you’ll understand, “Bye Felicia.”

First we have #Carrie Fisher with a massive heart attack at the age of 60 that may translate into her breathing via respirators — unable to breathe on her own. Even if she lives, the prognosis might not be good.

She’s a great writer, just finished a new book, “The Princess Diarist.” I love her sense of humor, but it isn’t a secret that she has had her shares of ups and down with drugs using them, no doubt, as a coping device. She’s a Libra Sun/Mercury. Mars in Pisces. This is where you find serious drug addiction — Pisces. It makes you very vulnerable. Her Moon is exalted in Taurus. Venus/Jupiter/Pluto conjunct in Virgo opposing Mars. The natal Venus/Jupiter makes one indulgent and can make a mother/daughter relationship that is too close. (Debbie lives next door.) And with Pluto there, it all becomes very serious with the need for control on both sides.

Currently she has predictive Venus sitting on natal Saturn. Saturn can always be illness, Venus usually points to the people you love or the people who don’t love you — a lack of love. It can cause grief and suffering and scrutiny of what you believe you should have but don’t. It’s a melancholy aspect. Prior to this aspect she had predictive Venus square natal Pluto. It’s another aspect that can make you take a look at your life and not like what you see. It causes extreme sensitivity. So for years now, and I don’t think this was one of her strengths anyway, Carrie has been her own worst enemy. Her heart attacked her — massively. Carrie Fisher has never truly believed that people love her. Let’s hope she makes it through this and finds out how wrong she was.

#George Michael is a young-ish recording superstar who died too soon. Christmas 2016. Age 53. No one was expecting it. But I think we’re going to see that both these people thought drugs were getting them through their pain only to find out it’s very hard on your internal organs. Likely for George, he was also suffering from an illness. But again an illness that would have allowed him to live longer if he had taken more care.

George is a sensitive Cancer with Venus/Mercury in Gemini. His Moon is in the show-biz sign of Leo. Mars is in the exacting sign of Virgo. Predictive Venus also caused him to recently reconnect with the love of his life. Hard to believe, but he just moved out of an exalted period with Jupiter protecting him. It was during this time that he also had predictive Venus opposition Saturn conjunct his Moon which unfortunately continued after Jupiter. We’re looking again at sensitivities that overwhelm the soul. It’s hard enough being a feeling person. Then when these kinds of aspects come in, if someone like George hasn’t done the work and toughened up, it becomes too much. Actually this can happen to any of us, but creative people are especially vulnerable.

There is a lesson here. Shortcuts are just that. They shortcut the current pain, but do they also take people away that have so much more to contribute.

UPDATE: Carrie Fisher died on December 27 at 8:55am. She says of her latest book, “It was sad because I was so insecure, and it’s very raw and obviously I didn’t expect anyone — including myself, I suppose later on — to read it.”

It’s tonight! This is from www.mirror.co.uk: “Tonight’s moon will be the biggest and brightest in living memory – and people around the world will be watching just after the sun sets. During the event, the moon will appear up to 14% bigger and 30% brighter than an average full moon. It will be at its biggest in decades, and offer brilliant photo opportunities, according to experts.”

Last night the moon was almost as bright, and will continue to dazzle throughout the week, but it will be at its brightest tonight. This supermoon is also unique in that it is also the second in a series of three supermoons appearing in three consecutive months, the first occurring on October 15, 2016 and the next to appear on December 14, 2016.

The moon will achieve perigee (14% closer to earth) at 6:22 a.m. EST and will become “full” at 8:52 a.m. EST on Monday, November 14, 2016.

The Slooh Community Observatory (http://live.slooh.com/) will be providing a livestream of the event for those who are unable to view the supermoon due to poor weather conditions. Slooh’s webcast begins at 8 p.m. EST on Sunday, November 13, 2016.

Wow! This never happens to me. But not only is James Packer, the man Mariah Carey became engaged to in January, a multi-billionaire, he’s in a long term Jupiter and the positive aspect it’s making is to Venus (love). So he decides he wants Mariah Carey and boom! He gets Mariah Carey. What could go wrong here? Well, something went down in Greece on his yacht and there’s a crazy pre-nup in play. They’re supposedly over? But are they?

Mariah is an Aries Sun, Mercury, Venus. I want to kill all Aries (just a personal vendetta), because they can be difficult. As the first sign in the zodiac, childishness runs rampant. They also thrive on relationship challenges. It’s the games they play. Can really be maddening. But it really goes back to those planets that are not operating well — as in her Moon in Scorpio where it’s in its fall. Drama. Tons of drama. Then Aries and Scorpio together — the two most angry signs in the zodiac — the story gets further complicated. Mariah is a little more open about herself than most, but we don’t really think she would be easy, do we?

Her astrology chart is in a pretty good place. Nothing really going on here. A nasty reputation aspect is coming up so she needs to be careful. She won’t.

James Packer is a Virgo with, Mercury, Venus, Pluto, and Uranus there. He also has his Moon in Scorpio as well as Mars and Neptune. The Moon here means that it isn’t operating correctly. All the negative characteristics of Scorpio come out — his feelings are all over the place. He can be influenced by others. The way his pre-nup reads with all the conditions on the money he’s giving her and how she should spend it, well, that’s Scorpio at its worst — controlling. Can you imagine one Scorpio Moon talking to another? It would be, “I want it my way.” “No, I want it my way.” Also his Saturn is on her Sun — very karmic. Did they bring baggage into this relationship that will affect its outcome? Can someone take advantage of this and influence him? Really, how hard is it to paint Mariah with a crazy brush?

James Packer could not be in a better place. You have to think twice when you challenge a person with these aspects. They tend to win. Predictive Jupiter conjunct natal Venus. Great love aspect. Predictive Mars sextile predictive Sun. Great energy aspect. Predictive Mercury sextile natal Sun. He’s communicating his message. I believe he really cares about Mariah. Supposedly he had a mad crush on her. So will he listen to his own instincts or will he allow outside voices to bring out the jealousy, suspiciousness and fear that lie under the surface?

Mariah, word to the wise. That diva stuff runs out. It gets your ego so out of joint you don’t see what’s right in front of you. You had this. A little humility could do wonders. Are you up for it? So the pre-nup is nasty. You’re Mariah, remember? Let the fireworks begin. For us.

On October 7th, the WASHINGTON POST released a video from ACCESS HOLLYWOOD where presidential candidate Donald Trump said, among other things, “I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star, they let you do it, you can do anything… Grab them by the pussy. You can do anything.” A disaster for women in general and for Billy Bush who was there with him going along.

Bush had just left ACCESS HOLLYWOOD to join the third hour of TODAY. But he’s only been there two months and already the other players don’t like him. He thinks he will be the next Matt Lauer, but his credentials don’t quite measure up. He has been indefinitely suspended, but now, Billy, it looks like, “You’re fired.” A lot of people who have watched him over the years, me included, like him. He’s a good natured guy and easy to listen to. But the question is his judgement — all important when you’re speaking for a network.

Bush is Libra — all the way with his Sun, Mercury, Uranus and Pluto there. His Moon is in the show business sign of Leo, Mars in Aquarius. He’s completely missing earth planets. It’s not a huge problem. A lot of people will just marry a partner with a lot of earth. But in business, it can affect your judgment. Earth gives you weight. It puts your feet on the ground. It gives you a sense of being solid. Too much air — you’re just flying around.

So management is now wondering what else is coming out? However, Billy has the big one — the protective predictive Sun conjunct Jupiter. Not everything goes your way in Jupiter, but when it doesn’t, you will still see the benefits of this protective planet. This is definitely the reason he got his position at NBC — no question. And just to understand why this blip did happen, he also has predictive Sun (you) opposition natal Saturn (work). So both aspects, a negative one and a positive one, can happen at the same time. Now we have to wait to see how the Universe works. But add in free will. We all have it. I read today that he is planning to sue ACCESS HOLLYWOOD for leaking the tapes, and he is walking around L.A. in casual flip flops. That would not be my advice.

My prediction. He should survive this one way or another. But drop out and let Jupiter work for you. I worry he’s getting in his own way.

I wrote a blog in 2009 on Amanda Knox. I remember not being completely happy with it. But to get blogs out, you can’t hassle them. You just have to put it out there. I’m including that blog at the end of this one for comparison. There is a huge error when I say that her Venus is sitting on her Mars. It is not. It will be — a year after Meredith Kercher’s death (and it will greatly add to the horror story this turned into), but was not in play the night of her death.

Netflix just did a documentary of Amanda’s trial. It does seem to exonerate her. However she has some very strange aspects that fateful night. Her predictive Sun (herself) is square to Pluto (death). A death did occur and it’s inconjunct to her Neptune (lying). The question always was did she kill Meredith. I have to admit, the media reports were so scandalous that I may have been influenced by them. I’m human. Because this chart, looking at it now, is really more about lying about a death than committing one. And that’s tricky anyway. Astrology is not perfect. It demands interpretation. And as I said, I, first of all, made a mistake, and that mistake which included a negative aspect from Mars would be more about violence and would make my first conclusion more likely. So don’t make mistakes.

Amanda is a Cancer Sun, and the information I didn’t have then, is that she has Gemini rising. All rising signs bring out the worst qualities of the sign. And for Amanda that would be lying. It is interesting that she has a Sagittarius Moon which is quite forthright. So there is a dichotomy with her. She can be very truthful, but she can also lie when it suits her. What really appears to have happened is that she told too many versions of her story and it landed back on her. And with those aspects, she should not have said a thing. Her aspects were very negative. I tell this to my clients who ignore me all the time. When you have a dangerous chart like this, you can’t play around. You must assume the worst can happen. It her case, it clearly did.

Blog from 12/11/2009: “Amanda Knox’s Sun is in Cancer, a sign associated with mood swings and sensitive feelings. Opposition that is Neptune, the planet of delusion. And when one planet squares both those planets, we have a focal planet. In her case, it is cardinal Jupiter, the cult follower. (In a T-square all the planets will be in the same modality.) The apex planet denotes a weakness of character or where a person can suspend judgment. Amanda was swept up in the drama of a situation that probably started as role playing and ended with her slitting the throat of another young woman while two young men assisted her. My guess is that there was no conscious intention to kill that girl. The evening took on a life of its own.

The negative elements of her chart were her progressed Venus sitting on her natal Mars. With Venus involved there was sexual tension. Also her progressed Mercury was on her natal Sun. Transiting Pluto, the death planet, had to also be involved, and it was conjunct her natal Moon and Uranus (the volatile planet).

One day, when people have their planetary forecast from birth to death, this type of situation might be avoided. Anyone with transiting Pluto on their natal Moon has no business playing these kinds of games. Add to that any negative progression involving Mars (violence) and the odds increase that a tragedy occurs.”

US WEEKLY has a cover on how Angelina is setting Brad up to destroy him. Funny. I was getting that same vibe. Not so much about destroying him but about getting total custody of the children since it’s looking more and more that her goal is to move to England to work for the United Nations.

As I wrote in my blog last week, they both have really rough charts. Things weren’t so happy at the Jolie-Pitt estate. But when couples stay together 30 years, stuff happens. You have to get through it. Although this was especially traumatic, and they both had it at the same time. However as I predicted prior, Brad has been misbehaving for a long time now. And, I believe, Angelina is over his bullshit. I’m certain that he knows exactly why she is choosing the scorched earth policy.

A Capricorn Moon man picks his woman so she can destroy him. I’ve thought more about that, and I think it’s their driving ambition that leads them to do it. Capricorn rules ambition. And the Moon placed here is in its detriment so it works badly. The choices don’t produce the right results. An ambitious woman will not put up with the bad behavior. Gets in her way.

It’s being reported that Brad has anger issues. His Mars is in Capricorn also, but it’s exalted there. Pluto squares his Sun, but trines his four Capricorn planets. It could be the drugs that are becoming a big part of this story. Or just his underlying meanness.

However, bottom line, Angie will get what she wants. That’s the relationship he signed up for. Now he gets to believe that women really are bitches. It has nothing to do with him, of course. Angelina has a Moon/Mars conjunction in Aries. Right after Pluto, watch for Aries anger. She had an emotional mother (Moon) who acted on her feelings before she gave them any thought. That incident on the plane just tripped her switch.

I think Angie will calm down and these two people will co-parent effectively. It’s possible they will get back together, but not if Brad is standing in her way of success. She will choose success over the relationship because she doesn’t trust them. And really, you shouldn’t. Once a relationship is over, it’s over. Your career will last forever.

We all heard it. The thud of the perfect couple getting a divorce. Except no one is perfect. Isn’t that a bitch?

Angelina Jolie is a Gemini to Brad’s (Pitt) Sagittarius. I don’t mind oppositions at all. They tend to fill each other out. But the downside is that they can be — opposite — having very different views on how they see life. It’s rare you see oppositions together. I’ve always wondered about that. Being a Sadge myself, I’ve never dated a Gemini.

Angelina has Venus as a focal planet which means that she doesn’t feel loved or lovable. Hence she has a half dozen children to ensure that someone always loves her. It really does come as close to solving the problem as you can get. But the solutions come with problems. Brad clearly was on board with the idea of this many children, but in reality it means growing up. Capricorn Moon alarm. I know. I’m a broken record on this, but isn’t it interesting all the handsome, charming celebrity men with a Cap Moon (George Clooney, Michael Douglas, Johnny Depp). And as I predicted Amber Heard took Johnny Depp down. Will this happen to Brad? Has Angelina fired the first round?

Probably. Remember he picked her so she could do this. Unconsciously, of course. But Jennifer Aniston wasn’t up to the task. So she had to go. Why do they want to be brought down? It’s something to do with the mother and I’ve never gotten it entirely clear myself. It’s always difficult for me to understand people that sabotage themselves. But surprisingly, we all do it a little. Probably has to do with not fundamentally not liking ourselves.

And here are the aspects they are dealing with. And the real reason this is happening now. Angelina has her predictive Sun conjoining her predictive Saturn and square her predictive Jupiter. So Saturn is making her want to be a more responsible adult. She has been advocating at the United Nations. And Jupiter makes her want to cut down on the indulgence of it all — the movie star stuff that she has always been a little suspicious of since it caused her father to leave her hallowed mother. So watching Brad be a child annoys her. And it’s not really his Sagittarius Sun. He has a pot full of Capricorn planets. As ambitious as they are, the opposite, of course would be true. They can be their own worst enemy. He has Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars in in Capricorn. That’s all of his personal planets except his Sun. So Brad is undeniably quirky cranky (and coming from the midwest) chauvinistic.

Brad currently has his predictive Mars sitting on his natal Saturn. Almost the same aspect as Angie. But his reaction to it is entirely different. Apparently according to Page Six, there’s another woman, Russian hookers (of course, otherwise it’s not a party) and hard drugs. He wants to make movies. She wants to save the world. Really, she just wants him to behave himself.

Brad’s aspects are passing. Angie will get rid of the Sun conjunction in 3/4 of a year. And the square? Year and a 1/2? Which strangely is good. He’ll start to realize what he’s given up quicker because his life and emotions will straighten up. She is still in the mad stage. These aren’t really divorce aspects. These are mid-life crisis aspects. They could easily get back together when they see the other with someone else. Neither of them have a ton of it, jealousy, but, seriously, they’re human.

Just home from the doctor, a nap seems in order. Half asleep, I hear, “you know” over and over on ACCESS HOLLYWOOD.” Asleep. Not asleep. The story continues ad nauseum — a continuous stream of words punctuated by, you know. Her fiance cheated, but it’s okay, you know. It’s really okay. You know we’ve worked it out. It was a long time ago, you know. The woman’s voice is insistent, persistent, demanding. I’ve fallen down a soap opera hole. It’s a never ending monologue with no real point, but this woman, who is LuAnn de Lesseps of THE REAL HOUSEWIVES OF NEW YORK, is on a mission for us to understand that she and this questionable man are going to get married.

LuAnn is a Taurus Sun/Mercury. But whoa! She has seven focal planets (two planets oppose and the focal planet squares both). That’s as many as I’ve ever seen anyone have. It’s remarkable in its ability to keep it’s owner completely off kilter. It’s a monstrous task holding your life together when you are being pulled in so many directions. You’ve got to give her that. She doesn’t seem Charlie Sheen crazy. But you also have to wonder.

So a little summary on focal planets: Sun makes you feel like the center of the Universe, Venus makes you feel unloved and unlovable, Moon make you super seriously sensitive, Mars and you’re a bulldozer who insists on having your way, Jupiter and you like to be part of an identifiable group, Saturn and your ambition is huge, Uranus makes you like it unusual and Pluto creates an atmosphere of right and wrong according to you. They all are needs that must be met. Every day. Every second.

The future for LuAnn and us having to hear more of this drivel is quite bright. Not having her time, I’m guessing her aspect has already come in — predictive Mars trine natal Jupiter. So, yes, it’s the big one. I just wish it required a little more humility and less brainless chatter. So congratulations to her. This marriage or what she wants to get out of it has a chance. Most likely all that nonsense is just a plot line, you know.
