by lokasiwisata.info Katie Holmes has filed for a divorce from Tom Cruise. Evidently she filed Thursday as Cruise was heading to Iceland to shoot his new movie. I wrote a profile of Katie Holmes in 2006 when she and Cruise first became a couple. In that article (snarkily entitled “Run Katie Run!”) I wrote: She has both Moon and Jupiter in Leo, showing a strong need for admiration and attention and a need to develop the personal ego. Her Venus is in Scorpio, indicating someone who has strong passions and emotions, and craves intensity in relationships. Yet her Moon is square to Venus, a configuration that often indicates a conflict between the maternal archetype (Moon) and the sexual nature of the goddess Venus. Women with these conflicts tend to have difficulty integrating these two archetypes and tend to swing from one pole to the other. In addition, Katie’s Venus is conjunct rebellious and independent Uranus, showing that she craves freedom and resists convention. The combination of Venus in Scorpio, which craves an intense bond, with Uranus sets up an inner conflict that is difficult to manage, particularly for a relatively young person who may lack a deeper level of self-understanding. You can read my profile of Tom Cruise here. Friends of Katie’s have evidently reported, not surprisingly, that Cruise dominated the relationship, dictating the clothes that she wears, the parts that she played and even the name that she used. The astrology of Katie’s rush to freedom begins back in January with a series of Jupiter transits throughout January and February that would have inspired courage and confidence to expand her life. A challenging aspect of Saturn to the […]
Just a few weeks ago I did a reading for a client with MS and wrote about it here in a discussion of the correlation between “warrior energy” and immune system disorders including MS. Shortly thereafter celebrity Jack Osbourne announced that he has been diagnosed with MS.
Osbourne is known primarily through the television reality show The Osbournes in which he is portrayed as the rebellious and drug addicted son of metal rocker Ozzy Osbourne. Jack Osbourne was dyslexic as a child and put on Ritalin for an ADD diagnosis as a teenager. His use of drugs escalated when his mother was diagnosed with cancer in 2002, and in 2003 at the age of 18 he was admitted to a psychiatric ward for an oxycontin addiction. Shortly thereafter he attempted suicide by cutting his wrists after being rejected by a girlfriend (according to his ; most accounts report that the suicide attempt occurred after his mother’s cancer diagnosis).
Jack Osbourne’s reveals some interesting clues. If the birthtime sourced by Astrotheme is correct he has Leo rising, with the Sun in Scorpio and a Virgo Moon. Someone with a Scorpio Sun is meant to live life intensely and with emotional fearlessness – to challenge themselves and others in a relentless journey to the ultimate Truth. But Leo seeks joy and happiness in life, and has a great need to be loved and appreciated. These two signs conflict with each other, resulting in a challenging inner debate. Scorpio is secretive and private, and Leo desires publicity and recognition.
His Virgo Moon can be somewhat fearful and security-driven, and while the Leo ascendant seeks the spotlight his Virgo Moon likely […]
While Neptune is usually considered a planet of spirituality, it also is the ruler of the experience of the masses. We usually put “entertainment” in that category, and now that Neptune has slipped into Pisces the nature of reality and entertainment is beginning to have the famous Neptunian blurring effect. Augmented reality will change the way we view our world, and now are making an appearance at rock festivals. Last weekend at the Coachella festival an apparent holographic image of the beloved rap icon Tupac Shakur gave a featured performance. http://youtu.be/AksK8BoPB5g The holographic image wasn’t actual footage of Shakur: “This is not found footage. This is not archival footage. This is an illusion, and this is just the beginning, Ed Ulbrich told “Dre has a massive vision for this.” The last time Neptune was in Pisces, beginning in 1848, print magazines were just beginning to bring news to the masses in a more entertaining form. Plays and vaudeville act attracted the average citizen into theaters around the world and made entertainment itself more accessible. Neptune’s travel through Pisces this time will no doubt continue to change the entertainment industry.

This time it’s official: after seven years and six children, the stars of the glitterati have formalized their relationship and plan to marry.
I’m always struck by the significance of seven-year periods in relationships. I first wrote about this back in 2006 in an article called “Astrology and the Seven-Year Itch.” Relationships have birthdates just like people do, and after seven years Saturn comes to the first square in the cycle of aspects to Saturn in the relationship chart. In addition, many people formalize their relationships under Saturn transits which tend to morivate us to want more stability and structure in our lives, so after seven years Saturn revisits those same issues.
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt met on the set of their movie Mr. and Mrs. Smith in 2004 when she was in the middle of her Saturn Return, the time at age 28-30 when Saturn returns to its place in our birthchart and we are forced to recognize that time is short and we need to begin to do something worthwhile with our lives. At the time their relationship became public transiting Saturn was sitting right on Jolie’s Venus, preparing her for commitment.
During this same period Brad Pitt, who was married to Jennifer Aniston at the time, was going through two stressful cycles affecting his Venus. Venus is the planet that inspires affection and describes the way we relate to others and what we need in our relationships. Transiting Saturn (disappointments, restriction) was opposing his natal Venus, which was putting pressure on his relationship and perhaps bestowing a sense of confinement. At the same time his progressed Venus was opposing Pluto in his natal chart. Pluto is the Great Transformer, and only the […]
Whitney Houston, the brilliant but troubled singer and film star, was found dead in a hotel bathtub this weekend. The cause of death has not yet been determined but toxicology tests found a combination of Xanax and alcohol.
Ms. Houston’s life-long troubles with drug and alcohol dependence were widely documented and often threatened her exceptional career. Her marriage to singer Bobby Brown was punctuated with violence and bouts of drug addiction and rehab.
Astrologically, Ms. Houston () had a conjunction of the Sun and Venus in Leo – she was born to be someone whose light shone brightly (Leo) and the presence of Venus typically bestows beauty and the ability to interact with others in a positive way. However, Saturn, the Celestial Teacher opposed that Sun/Venus combination which suggests that she was riddled with insecurities about her looks and her ability to be loved. In addition, the fact that Saturn in her chart was retrograde shows that she was particularly self-critical.
Although her chart was quite fiery, signifying a person of great passions and energy (her Moon conjoined Jupiter in Aries), Pisces, the sign of empathy, artistry, creativity and intuition rising in her chart, and Neptune, ruler of Pisces, squared her Sun/Venus conjunction. Neptune and Pisces are beautiful influences for an artist, but they can also indicate addictive behavior because of the strong urge to transcend material reality, an urge which is good for the spiritual life, but not so good for someone who lives in the material world. Neptune and Pisces express themselves through art and creativity but can make it difficult for an individual to see the realities of their lives clearly, and that was a hallmark of Whitney Houston’s short life.
In delving […]
