Who is Alexandria Ocasio Cortez? The astrological profile

Embed from Getty Images

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was recently elected to the US House of Representatives from the 14th District of New York – the youngest woman ever to be elected to Congress.  Not only that, she is in the middle of her first Saturn Return.

The Saturn Return happens to each of us every 28-30 years when Saturn, traveling through its orbit around the Sun, returns to the degree of the sign that it holds in our natal astrological chart.  Because Saturn represents the virtues of hard work and achievement as well as the distress of tests and challenges, the Saturn Return is an important time and one in which we are often tested with experiences that may feel outside of our control.  But the Saturn Return can also be a time of great achievement and growth.  This is the period during which we realize that we have to grow up and start adulting, and this process is more comfortable for some than for others.  Some individuals find this too difficult, flaming out in their careers and shifting to another path, while some begin to achieve success during this time.

Recently I wrote about this crop of Saturn Return people who were born during the early 1990s when Uranus, Saturn and Neptune were all conjunct in Capricorn.  Here is an important takeaway from that article:

These periods can be very difficult, but for Saturn/Capricorn people they have the potential to be life changing in highly beneficial ways.  Many of the Capricorn stellium people, with the dreamy genius of Uranus/Neptune in their charts, have had difficulty coming to terms with the duality in their personalities between the creative inspiration of Uranus/Neptune and the requirement of grounding and achievement of Saturn/Capricorn.  Under these influences right now and in the coming years, […]

The astrology of Megyn Kelly

Embed from Getty Images

All politically-related posts on this blog seem to generate controversy. Please note that I attempt to be as impartial as possible and focus on the astrology of the situation, although at times my own personal bias may bleed through.  

Megyn Kelly is no stranger to controversy, but where controversy served her well during her thirteen years at Fox News, it has not been as well received during her tenure at NBC’s morning show “Megyn Kelly Today.”  Her recent comments about white children dressing in blackface for Halloween resulted in NBC’s pulling the plug on her show.  These comments follow a long pattern of what has been described as “racial insensitivity” and should have been no surprise to the NBC execs who put her on the air.  Ms. Kelly’s particular combination of blonde beauty and biting intelligence is the very thing which catapulted her to fame on Fox News whose audience is , but was less appealing to NBC’s morning viewers who are accustomed to a different kind of content, and the younger audience .

It will not surprise astrology buffs to know that Megyn Kelly (born November 18, 1970 time unknown) was born with the Sun in the sign of Scorpio.  Scorpio a powerful sign which is known for its penchant for passion and intensity, and driven by an urge towards transformation and the embrace of the dark side of human experience as part of the process of personal evolution.  Scorpio people are often intense and amoral, living in an embrace of their own personal Truth that will not necessarily be the same as the truths espoused by […]

The astrology of Brett Kavanaugh

Embed from Getty Images

Brett Kavanaugh, the Trump pick for the US Supreme Court, has been under a lot of fire for sexual assault allegations.  The vote to confirm his nomination was delayed by a week so that the FBI could investigate these charges.  I did my own investigation into his astrological chart to determine his underlying motivations and characteristics.  Please note that in these profiles I attempt to put my own views aside and to be as neutral as possible in examining the astrological characteristics rather than making judgments about an individual.  

Kavanaugh (February 12, 1965, Washington DC, time unknown) was born under the sign of Aquarius – the sign of rational thinking and authentic behavior.  Kavanaugh has three planets in Aquarius:  the Sun, Mercury and Venus.  Aquarius can be somewhat detached – its traditional ruler is Saturn which can be somewhat cold and disconnected.  It’s the modern influence of Uranus that gives Aquarius its tendency towards radical views that depart from the status quo and seeks to break up old paradigms.

The chart I used is for noon the day of birth since no birth time is available; we therefore don’t know the ascendant or midheaven placements. Kavanaugh’s Aquarius planets are squared by Neptune, the planet that inspires us to transcend the material world in one way or another: sometimes through higher pursuits such as art and music and spirituality, sometimes by drinking to excess or taking drugs.   Because Neptune tends to blur the distinctions that reality imposes, Neptune squaring the Sun can make it difficult to determine one’s identity.  It can also somtimes show someone who is misunderstood by others and not seen as he really is (President Obama has a Sun/Neptune square also).

1965 was a difficult year in which to be born.  Uranus (disruption) […]

Asia Argento and the Black Moon Lilith

Embed from Getty Images

I’ve been writing quite a bit about the Black Moon Lilith and its relevance to the Me Too movement and sexual abuse.  The Black Moon Lilith is an interesting astrological symbol – not a planet or an asteroid (there IS a Lilith asteroid but that is a different matter entirely), the BML is a focal point between the earth and the farthest point of the lunar orbit (see this earlier article for more details).

The origin of the Lilith story is obscured in the midst of time, but the archetype of Lilith, Adam’s first wife, is that of an oversexed female who demands equality and refuses to be dominated by Adam. With the help of Yahweh, Adam sends her out to the wilderness without her children (later she is said to have killed her children but I believe that is just bad press) and she then becomes the model for the succubus – a female demon who sucks away the life force of men.  So we have a heady brew of scary female sexuality combined with independence and resistance to the patriarchy.

For the past few years I’ve been experimenting with the Black Moon Lilith, and when she shows up prominently in a woman’s chart (as she does in mine) there seems to be a continuum of experiences that range from at the minimum a strong desire to help and defend other women, to a severe hatred of men.  Men whose charts show a prominent Black Moon Lilith are often both fascinated and repulsed by strong and powerful women, depending on other placements in their chart.

So it’s no surprise that the Black Moon Lilith has shown up in the charts of those […]

The astrology of Hedy Lamarr, actress and inventor

Hedy Lamarr astrologyI recently watched about the glamorous actress Hedy Lamarr who was not only the most beautiful actress of her day, but also a brilliant inventor whose early discoveries resulted in the WiFi and Bluetooth systems that we use today.  Along with her colleague George Antheil, she came up with the idea of a “frequency hopping mechanism”   The two filed for a patent, and the information from the patent was provided to the US Navy who then gave it to a contractor to bring to fruition.  Although she was not recognized for this invention until 1997, her ideas form the basis of much of the communication systems we use today.

I find her story a tragic one – despite her great beauty she was frustrated in her attempts to have an intellectually satisfying life.  If she was born in today’s world, 100 years later, her life would have been much different.  We often forget to appreciate the opportunities that women have today that would have been unheard of a century ago, or even 50 years ago.

Finding a date of birth for a film star of the early twentieth century is not easy.  Before Wikipedia, the biographies of celebrities were fabricated, often with assumed names and falsified birth dates.  Ms. Lamarr claimed she was born in 1915, but most biographies give 1914 as the year of birth.  Some, including the Encyclopedia Brittanica, give 1913 as the birth year.  Note: astro.com gives a birth time of 7:30 pm but it is sourced “from memory” and I have not utilized this time in my analysis as memory is not always reliable.
