The agony of Bill Zeller

Bill Zeller suicideA reader requested that I look at the chart of Bill Zeller, a brilliant programmer who was best known for creating innovative software such as the MyTunes application.  Mr. Zeller committed suicide on January 5th after struggling for a lifetime with memories of repeated sexual abuse as a child.

It’s unfortunate that we don’t have a time of birth for Mr. Zeller, but the solar chart (born 10/26/1983 in Connecticut) reveals a stellium (tight conjunction) of four planets.  His Sun and Saturn are tightly conjoined in Scorpio, suggesting a pattern of rejection and coldness (Saturn) from the father, and also a tendency towards depression, especially as a young person.  (The beauty of Saturn is that if we can survive his trials as young people we can have a very productive old age.)  A Scorpio Sun reveals an assignment to experience life as deeply as possible, including the dark emotions that lurk under every rock and within every crevice.  There is a powerful emotional intensity with Scorpio that cannot be denied.

Also embedded in this stellium are Mercury and Scorpio in a nearly exact conjunction.  Mercury is either at the last degree of Libra or fully into Scorpio, depending on when Zeller was born, and Pluto is at the last degree of  Libra where it is fully “on the cusp” of Scorpio.  Mercury represents the way we think about things, and with Mercury on the cusp of Scorpio and conjoined by Pluto we have a “double whammy” connecting Mercury–the mind– with Pluto/Scorpio’s intensity.

Mercury is also conjunct the Sun which bestows a high degree of intelligence on the individual, but traditional astrologers, calling this a “combust” aspect, suggest that Mr. Zeller’s capacity for reason would be diminished by […]

Blogging in the time of Pluto in Capricorn

celebrity journalismWhen I started this blog in 2005, celebrity journalism was all the rage.  A good part of my posts were spent analyzing whether or not the latest celebrity relationships would last, or why the bimbo of the month had her latest meltdown.  Celebrity gossip as a media force has been around for a long time, but that force reached a point of hysteria when Pluto was in Sagittarius, which among other things rules entertainment and celebrity.

Pluto takes a long time to go through a sign, anywhere from twelve to twenty years, and while Pluto is going through a sign we tend to see the matters that are ruled by that sign become intensified and glorified, but we also see the dark underside of these areas of life emerge.  Sagittarius is the sign of expansion and optimism, and when Pluto moved through Sag between 1995 and 2008 we witnessed the darker side of perpetual optimism which led to unsustainable economic expansion and a relentless refusal to acknowledge the limits (Capricorn) of this kind of growth.  This of course is what led to the economic downturn in which we now find ourselves.

Under the glittering celebration of Pluto in Sagittarius, so many people, feeling the pressure of this expansiveness, longed to live like the celebrities whose every move was followed and studied.  This obsession with celebrity journalism was called a “virus” by the mainstream press who feared celebrity news would crowd out legitimate news.

Of course the destruction and transformation (Pluto) of journalism and news (Sagittarius) was something to be expected when Pluto went through Sagittarius, but now that Pluto is in Capricorn celebrities just don’t seem as interesting.  After all, how much can we really read about Lindsay […]

Leslie Nielsen has died at 84

Leslie Nielsen astrologyLeslie Nielsen, whose 60-year career saw his transformation from serious stage actor to hilarious funnyman in films like “Airplane” and the “Naked Gun” and “Police Squad” series, died peacefully in his sleep yesterday after a bout with pneumonia.  He was 84.

84 corresponds to the number of years Uranus takes to travel around the Sun, and if weLeslie Nielsen astrology live to be 84 we will experience the Uranus Return, the time when Uranus returns to its place in the birthchart.  Personal Uranus cycles occur every 21 years (ages 21, 42, 63 and 84) and because Uranus is the planet that inspires radical change and a revolutionary departure from the past these cycles are often marked by a significant event in our lives that changes us forever.

Mr. Nielsen’s Uranus return is actually over – he went through it last year and earlier this year.  But Jupiter, which has been traveling in close tandem with Uranus, was in an exact conjunction with Uranus in his chart on the day that he died.  Jupiter represents liberation and the freedom to begin a new adventure, and Jupiter alignments are often found at the time of death.

Even more significantly, though, is the transit of the Pluto/North Node conjunction over the ascendant of Mr. Nielsen’s chart at the time of death.  (Data from .)  The ascendant describes the persona and the way in which we approach […]

The astrology of the Tony Parker/Eva Longoria split

longoria-parker.jpgJust one day after both parties denied split rumors last week, actress Eva Longoria has filed for divorce from basketball star Tony Parker after three years of marriage.  Ms. Longoria found hundreds of text messages on her husband’s phone from the wife of another NBA player.The Longoria/Parker relationship is a great example of how unhelpful Sun Sign compatibility is when it is considered as the most important factor in a relationship.  Longoria’s Pisces Sun is in a nearly exact sextile, an extremely harmonious aspect, to Parker’s Taurus Sun, suggesting a high degree of compatibility between them.  But people are complex, and these two are no exception.

In  her Pisces Sun conjoins Jupiter, the traditional ruler of Pisces and the planet of good fortune and optimism.  She definitely has a sensitive side, but she has a strong and forceful personality with her Aries (the warrior) Moon and Venus and Mars, planet of aggression, in a challenging aspect to Uranus, planet of radical behavior.  Her chart shows that she is very like the fiery character she plays on the Desperate Housewives program – a powerhouse of energy with a sweet and sensitive side.

is also sensitive with his Moon in the dreamy and empathic sign of Pisces, but he lacks the fire that Longoria’s chart reveals.  His Mars is in Libra, demonstrating a drive (Mars) to please others and find harmony in relationships (Libra), and while his Venus is in that fiery sign Aries, suggesting that in his relationships (Venus) he needs to be the one in charge (Aries), Saturn opposes Venus which can create a great deal of self-doubt and hesitation.  I suspect that over the course of their relationship he became overwhelmed by her assertive […]

The astrology of Demi Lovato’s “meltdown”

Demi Lovato astrologyDemi Lovato, the young singer/actress who rose to fame as a Disney Star back in 2008  at the age of fifteen, recently left  the Jonas Brothers World Tour to seek treatment for “emotional and physical issues” which evidently include anger management problems. Rumors are swirling around that she has drug and alcohol issues but Lovato’s spokespeople deny this, saying “”Demi has decided to take personal responsibility for her actions and seek help.  She is doing just that.”

The gossip press has reported that an altercation with backup dancer Alex Welch in which Lovato punched her former friend was the event that instigated her decision to enter treatment.  Lovato told talk show host Ellen DeGeneris that she was bullied so badly in middle school that she dropped out of the seventh grade and was home schooled instead.  Her suffering was so extreme that she struggled with eating disorders and self-mutilation (cutting) according to an .

Life in the Hollywood spotlight is challenging for many, but these young stars are more vulnerable than most.  Lovato (born August 20, 1992, time unknown) was born at the beginning of the conjunction of Uranus and Neptune, a powerful planetary alignment that is the source of tremendous creativity and innovation, but also suggests a high degree of energetic (as opposed to emotional) sensitivity.

She has the Sun in Leo, the sign that more than any other loves the spotlight and relishes the opportunity to be recognized and admired (unless there are other aspects that create a conflict around this desire for visibility).  She has Mars in Gemini which gives her tremendous versatility and a desire to excel at many different things, and she has a nice conjunction of the two […]
