  • Jason Day – Water Fire, ultra-determined and lucky

    No Comments
    Jason Day is an Australian pro golfer, presently ranked as No 1. He was born 12 Nov 1987 2pm Beaudesert, Australia and has been golfing since he was a young child. He’s got a very intense chart with Sun Pluto Mercury spread out through Scorpio, all in his 8th.  But he’s also got a surfeit of Fire from Jupiter in Aries, a Leo Moon and Uranus Saturn Venus in Sagittarius, so he’ll be energised by that. His 2nd house Jupiter is in an adventurous opposition to Mars and trine Uranus MC Saturn so he’ll be lucky in attracting money and was clearly destined for a different kind of career. His Moon in flamboyant Leo is in the performing 5th – …Keep reading »

    No Comments
        Rafael Nadal is a Spanish pro tennis player currently ranked No 5 with an impressive array of Grand Slam wins behind him. Born 3 June 1986 6.20pm Manacor, Spain, he has tr Saturn now well into his lower profile first quadrant when it becomes more difficult to summon up the energy to train/play with the kind of drive he had in former years.

But tr Pluto is trine his Solar Arc MC all year so he’ll get some lift from that. …Keep reading »

    1 Comment
      Gomorrah is the latest euro-noir, gritty TV crime drama series, made in Naples with a whiff of The Wire and The Sopranos about mob organised crime. It was based on a non-fiction book and the screenplay written by Roberto Saviano about a Mafia-type secret crime syndicate, the Camorra, which has been around since the 16th century.  Since its publication he has been living under police protection. Saviano was born 22 September 1979 and is a serious Sun Saturn in Virgo as befits a factual writer. He has Mars in Cancer widely square Pluto and trine Uranus so will be attracted to risk. His creative 5th Harmonic is strong though strained with two Yods; as is his leaving-a-legacy-for-history 17H. His …Keep reading »
  • Prince Andrew – not listening to the Eclipse message

    1 Comment
      Prince Andrew is in the headlines again for his Kazakh connections including his sale-of-the-century of the marital home to an oligarch and a business deal he allegedly attempted to broker while acting as UK trade envoy. Born 19 Feb 1960 3.38pm London, he was removed from his trade envoy role after some previous rumpus which saw his relationship with his ever-protective mother the Queen stretched to breaking point. He has a 7th house Pisces Sun at zero degrees opposition Pluto square a 4th house Scorpio Moon – so definitely attached to family and also to a public lifestyle and attention. He has a children and party-loving 5th house Jupiter in Sagittarius in an entrepreneurial, over-confident and demanding Fire Grand …Keep reading »
  • Norbert Hofer – far-right loses Austria Presidency by a whisker

    No Comments
      Austria and indeed Europe have been saved from the first far-right Head of State as hard-line anti-immigration Norbert Hofer (Freedom Party) lost the Presidential election on the postal vote. Though it was a close run thing – 49.7% to 50.3%. He’s pro-Germanic, wears emblems redolent of the Nazis and slogans such as freedom, fatherland. Born 2 March 1971 Vorau, Austria, he’s a Sun Mercury in Pisces square Neptune Jupiter in Sagittarius – so he’ll have the Piscean obsessive attachment to a vision of what he sees as the ideal.  He has a hard Moon Saturn in Taurus with Venus in traditionalist Capricorn trine Pluto; and Mars in crusading Sagittarius as well. Tr Neptune is conjunct his Sun at the …Keep reading »

    2 Comments
        Roger Federer, currently ranked as No 3 in tennis, and regarded as one of the greatest players ever, is beginning to feel the strain of his age after two decades of punishing his body. He’s withdrawn from the French Open, having pulled out of the Madrid Open earlier this month as well, due to injury. Born 8 August 1981 8.40am Bale, Switzerland,  he’s got a run of disappointing and unsettling transits to midpoints through this year and in some ways worse in 2017. In 2016 he’s got the enthusiasm-dampening tr Saturn square tr Neptune hitting his Sun/Jupiter and Sun/Saturn; with an insecure/operation and accident-prone tr Uranus square his Mars/Node.  In 2017 tr Pluto moves on to square Sun/Neptune …Keep reading »
  • Jordan Spieth – a Mars Saturn setback

    1 Comment
        Jordan Spieth, American pro golfer who had stratospheric success in 2015 suddenly lost form through this year’s Masters. Born 27 July 1993, he is a Sun Leo sextile Jupiter in Libra, so a warm-hearted, enthusiastic personality.  But he’s highly strung with Uranus Neptune in Capricorn trine Mars in Virgo and opposition Mercury in Cancer. What’s wrong this year is his Solar Arc Saturn opposing his Mars which does suggest a major setback and gnashing of teeth.  Plus tr Uranus has been squaring his Neptune Uranus nad Mercury which may have also been a distraction.  His midpoints also are not great in 2016 with tr Saturn square tr Neptune hitting on his Mars/Saturn and tr Uranus opposing his Mars/Pluto …Keep reading »
