Brexit: Deal or No Deal?

A lot can happen in two years, and my goodness, there have been so many twists in this particular tale since that historic (and controversial) vote back in June 2016. In the last week, though, things have seriously ramped up, both for the UK and its current prime minister, as the March 31 deadline rapidly… Continue reading Brexit: Deal or No Deal?

Since the ANC's leadership elections in December 2017, where Cyril Ramaphosa, seemingly against the odds, managed to emerge as the victor, there has been much speculation about how long Jacob Zuma had as SA president before he was forced to step down.

Having spent the last two elections 'getting my eye in,' hopefully this time I will be in a better position to avoid the common assumptions and pitfalls, and get things right first time round... Here goes with my election predictions!...

South Africa: Ready for a Revolution?

On Friday the 30th of Mar 2017, Jupiter squared Pluto. This dramatic transit coincided with the triggering of Brexit by Theresa May but also with a rapidly growing leadership crisis in South Africa that lead to the Rand, going into freefall and culminating just a few days later with one credit ratings agency re-assigning their currency to junk status. Just a year before, the scenario looked very different and a lot more hopeful...

Does George Washington hold the key to choosing America’s next President?

Last time there was a US Presidential Election (2012), I stuck my neck out and made some predictions about the outcome based on fairly traditional astrological methods. Although my predictions came true, this time around I wanted to do something different. There are already so many astrologers out there making predictions for the 2016 race… Continue reading Does George Washington hold the key to choosing America’s next President?

There is much speculation about the former first lady's time of birth, which is one of the reasons why it was so hard for astrologers to make hard and fast predictions about Hillary Clinton's chances of becoming the 45th US President. You just have to look at the source notes on Astro Databank to see… Continue reading Figuring out Hillary Clinton’s natal chart
