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 […]

Taylor Swift is angry

Taylor Swift astrologyTaylor Swift, the beautiful young songstress who has achieved great success at a young age, has been in the news over the past week for her new album.  A in the Times says:

FOR pure star-on-star revenge, “Dear John,” from the new Taylor Swift album, “Speak Now,” will be tough to beat. Six and a half minutes long and flagrantly provocative, it’s a deeply uncomfortable song, its protagonist anguished and violated. “Don’t you think I was too young to be messed with?” she asks. “The girl in the dress/Cried the whole way home.”

The object of derision in the “Dear John” song is thought to be John Mayer, with whom she had a rumored affair earlier this year.

Ms. Swift (born December 13, 1989, Reading PA, time unknown)  has a Sagittarian Sun which is hopeful, optimistic, and never holds a grudge.  But her Moon is in emotional Cancer, revealing a very sensitive heart, and Mars in her chart, the planet that shows how we defend ourselves and express anger, is in barbed Scorpio.  Mars in Scorpio is usually extremely charismatic and deeply sexual, will hold a grudge until the end of time, and tends to prefer to remain hidden so that it can shoot its zingers without being seen.

Ms. Swift told the Times,

““I feel like in my music I can be a rebel,” Ms. Swift said at a quiet restaurant not far from her new Nashville apartment. “I can say things I wouldn’t say in real life. I couldn’t put the sentence together the way I could put the song together.” In interviews she’s like her songs, almost revealing.

This perfectly mirrors the dynamic of her chart, and makes for an extremely interesting person to […]

In the news: Zecharia Sitchin and Charlie Sheen

Zecharia Sitchin has died

Zecharia SitchinI just discovered that Zecharia Sitchin died on October 9th.  Sitchin was the author of many books translating ancient Sumerian texts which appeared to describe the settlement of Earth by ancient astronauts.  Though ridiculed by many, Sitchin’s work has been extremely influential.  Sitchin, aged 90, would have experienced his “Pluto opposition” this year, a time when Pluto in the sky opposes Pluto in the chart.

Sitchin, with the Sun in Cancer (born July 11, 1920, time unknown, Azerbaijan), had a triple conjunction of Mercury, Neptune and Jupiter, all in Leo.  Mercury in Leo can be forceful with one’s opinions and doesn’t back down easily when crossed, although his Cancerian Sun and Venus would have been more sensitive to the huge amount of criticism he received.  The combination of Mercury and Neptune is extremely imaginative and has a facility with languages, and the addition of Jupiter helps to expand the imagination and encourage “out of the box” thinking.

Sitchin was an important influence for those of us who seek to understand our world on a more complex level than the superficial, and he will be missed.

Charlie Sheen found “frothing” at the Plaza

Actor Charlie Sheen is a frequent favorite of tabloid journalism.  Accused of beating up ex-wife Denise Richards, accused of threatening soon-to-be ex-wife Brooke Sheen with a knife, and yesterday reports emerged that Sheen was rushed to the hospital in the early hours of the morning after Plaza hotel staff in New York  found him drunk and disorderly, yelling and damaging $7,000 worth of hotel furnishings.

Sheen is a great example of why we should never look at just Sun Signs in astrology.  Sheen is […]

The astrology of Betty White’s amazing career

Betty White has had one of the longest running careers in show business.  Her career began just after her high school graduation, and she had her first radio show before she was 20.  She was the star of the long-running television program The Golden Girls, and was a supporting actor in many television programs and films.

Recently though her career seems to have exploded.  Since 2009 she has appeared in three films, and she recently became the oldest living person to host Saturday Night Live after a Facebook group demanding her appearance exceeded 500,000 members.  She now has her own television program, a calendar, and her own clothing line.

This explosion began in the months leading up to the transition of her progressed Venus (attraction, love, affection) over her Midheaven (career point) in early 2009.  (Data source: .)  Her natal chart shows an interesting combination of a Leo ascendant which craves recognition and authority and also bestows good humor and wit, with a conjunction of the Sun and Venus in achievement-oriented Capricorn.  The Sun/Venus conjunction gives her a tremendously likeable nature, and it is squared by Jupiter which suggests that she can be lucky, but somewhat careless with that luck.  However, the Capricorn influence inspires a strong work ethic and an ability to work hard and focus her energy towards her goals.

The Sun and Venus are both in the sixth house, along with Mercury.  The sixth house represents our work environment and everyday life, but traditionally it also rules “master/servant” relationships and small animals.  Those with Venus in the sixth house have a love of animals that is reflected in Ms. White’s embrace of animal charities.

Little is known about Ms. […]
