We’re experiencing the worst. Right? He’s lying on a daily basis. Doesn’t he respect the American public? He’s treating the press (especially the minority press) like they are gum under his shoe. So what does his astrology chart say about him?

He’s a Virgo Sun/Pluto/Mercury. With Pluto, he likes control — probably thinks he should be president. All those planets are focal planets (two opposing planets with the focal planets squaring both). So the Sun, a little of his own narcissism, Mercury, verbally abusive, and Pluto, a strong sense of right and wrong according to his own definition. Explains a lot. His Moon is in its fall in Scorpio. This is a wicked Moon. In itself — doesn’t make you a terrible person, but there’s a terrible person inside you if it wants to come out. This placement can make you meaner than a rattlesnake. And cranky, because the Moon doesn’t like being in this sign.

Sean has an interesting thing happening in his chart. He was in a positive Jupiter period when he was hired for his job as White House press secretary and Communications Director. But (I don’t have his time so it’s not exact) immediately after he hit a wall in the form of predictive Mars squaring his Neptune. Neptune being lying. Squares are bad. Mars being the Cuisinart that crushes your life into little crispy bits. So let’s see where this goes. His dream job, and the one he is obviously trying to hold on to against all odds, is in serious jeopardy — along with what is left of his reputation.

Okay, they’re hot. Both are Leos. Sexy. I get it. He has Moon in Pisces to her super-Scorpio Moon. Okay. Okay. She has Mars in Sadge. His is Taurus. Hers squares his Venus. That works for chemistry.

I think the timing is wrong. He has predictive Sun square Mars. And she has predictive Sun square Venus. Although he also has Venus coming up to sextile Uranus. Now alone that could be good. Except it isn’t. These two are too high profile to take it casually. She’s very jealous. And he knows how to make women jealous.

Are you wondering if the prince will marry a common girl? Why would he? So many choices. And why this girl?

Harry is a Virgo Sun/Mercury. His Mars is in Sagittarius so he likes all things exotic. He likes other countries and religions. His Venus is in its rulership in the sign of Libra so it works well there. And his Moon is in the exalted sign of Taurus. So far he’s pretty perfect, but, oh, he has Capricorn rising. All the negative signs rising are a little more difficult than the positive (fire, air) ones. But Capricorn is its own little form of hell. There is a lot of insecurity in his makeup. He desperately needs to be needed. There is a sense of rejection from birth — of being unwanted by one or both his parents. His life is based around these feelings of not fitting in. So early on, he made a decision that his life only works if he is in control. All this, and still, he is destined for something important as Capricorn rules the 10th House of Career. In Harry’s 9th House of Foreign Countries is his Venus (women he will love), Pluto (where he finds his control) and Saturn (ambition).

Meghan Markle is a Leo Sun/Mercury. Her Mars is in Cancer. And her Venus is in Virgo, Harry’s Sun/Mercury. So that’s a connection — a good one. Her Moon is in Libra conjunct Pluto which makes that Moon also Scorpio because sitting beside a planet gives it those qualities. And Scorpio is one screwed-up Moon in its fall. Her Moon also conjunct Jupiter giving it outspoken Sagittarius qualities, and conjunct Capricorn where you have the other difficult debilitated Moon. So while Meghan looks like a simple girl, she is not. She’s complicated and once everything settles down, difficult. However Meghan’s Libra Moon/Pluto/Jupiter/Saturn conjuncts Harry’s Venus — another good and strong connection and likely the reason they are together. Although all that Libra squares Harry’s Capricorn rising — a rub that won’t show for a time, but can cause trouble later on. How much? It’s an individual thing how one handles their chart. Two people won’t handle it the same. And Libra in general doesn’t like confrontation. Their connection could be so strong — they could work on their bond — and this will be minor. However, just the opposite can happen. If they don’t work on it, it could take them further and further apart.

Harry and Meghan have complicated charts together — a lot going right and a lot going wrong. These tend to be very passionate relationships. And Harry hasn’t experienced the insecurity this girl can put him through. However, right now they are perfect since Megan has predictive Mars sextile natal Jupiter and Harry had predictive Mars conjunct Jupiter with no negative aspect replacing it and predictive Mercury sextile Neptune on it’s way to sextiling natal Jupiter. I predict they will marry. It’s not that often that both people are in Jupiter. It will be one of the best times in their lives. Right now, it’s magic. They don’t have to come down to earth for a quite awhile.

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.”
