The announcement was followed by the news that she had been admitted to hospital, suffering from acute morning sickness.

Astrological Review of October 2012

November seemed to be dominated by two things – the American presidential elections and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. As I wrote in my article on the former, there did seem to be a clear astrological indication that Obama would win, and indeed, he did. For those interested in the details, visit my Astro-Headlines page. The Palestinian-Israeli crisis seemed to erupt shortly… Continue reading Astrological Review of October 2012

Astrological Review of June 2012

June was Jubilee month for the UK. During June 3-6, the nation (plus many Commonwealth countries and well-wishers from around the world) celebrated the Queen’s diamond anniversary with a feast of memorable public events, including a Thames riverboat procession and a rock concert outside Buckingham Palace, along with numerous tea and garden parties. The festivities helped many people to… Continue reading Astrological Review of June 2012

Astrological Review of December 2011

Death of a North Korean Dictator December 2011 saw the death of North Korean dictator, Kim Jong-il. Although his passing away was officially announced on the 17th of December, no one is sure of the exact time or date of his death, nor indeed, of his birth, given this controlling regime’s penchant for secrecy and their preference for mythologizing the life of their ‘dear leader’ in… Continue reading Astrological Review of December 2011

Astrological Review of July 2011

July was an intense and eventful month, given the phone hacking scandal that just seemed to get bigger and uglier with each passing day. The situation seemed to spring out of nowhere and develop momentum just days after the solar eclipse in Capricorn on the 1st, with reports that News of the World journalists had hacked into murder victim, Milly Dowler’s phone surfacing in the press around the 4th. Within a week, the tabloid newspaper had been closed down, leaving over 200 journalists jobless and a growing political firestorm brewing over how widespread the practice had been within the British press and… Continue reading Astrological Review of July 2011

Astrological Review of June 2011

June played host to two eclipses, starting with a partial solar eclipse in Gemini on the 1st. This signalled the start of a new six month phase in politics, intellectual thought, education, religious beliefs, the media, communications, commerce and travel matters. Saturn also finally ended its period of retrograde motion on the 13th in Libra - the sign ruling relationships, the law, fairness and justice, bringing internal and hidden issues back out into the world once again. During the eclipse, the Sun and Moon made a trine to Saturn, suggesting that regulations, authorities and structuresrelated to Libran-ruled matters might somehow… Continue reading Astrological Review of June 2011

Astrological Review of March 2011

On the 11th of March, a week after the New Moon in Pisces, a devastating tsunami, induced by a powerful earthquake off the coast of Sendai, Honshu led to the destruction of several coastal cities in north-eastern Japan, as well as a major meltdown crisis at the Fukushima nuclear plant.  At the time, the waxing Moon was making a square to Neptune, ruler of the oceans – a fitting omen.  Some astrologers suggested that the quake may have been stirred up by the stronger-than-usual gravitational pull of the Super Moon as it waxed towards Full on the 19th whilst… Continue reading Astrological Review of March 2011

Astrological Review of February 2011

During February, a series of contacts to the lunar nodes by major planets, Jupiter andUranus appeared to mobilise the populace of several North African and middle eastern countries, including Tunisia, Egypt, Algeria, Libya and Bahrain, into protesting against their despotic political leaders and calling for democratic political reform. Both Uranus and Jupiter have been hovering near the mid-point of the nodal axis since the beginning of February, together forming a T-square with… Continue reading Astrological Review of February 2011
