The astrology of Kelsey Grammer’s latest chapter

Kelsey Grammer astrologyWhen I was in Woodstock a couple of years ago, I saw a vaguely familiar face walk in the door of a shop.  It took me a few moments to realize that it was Kelsey Grammer.  He was friendly and open, with a big smile.  He has a bit of a “Charlie Brown” look – a nice looking face but one that isn’t memorable for its details.  But I was struck by his pleasant and friendly demeanor.

Mr. Grammer is interested in astrology and psychic phenomena, as he reports in in the Wall Street Journal:

Pisces are called indecisive, but you didn’t have trouble making up your mind about doing a big Broadway show.

My Mars is in Aries.

I don’t know what that means.

My ability to make decisions is actually pretty solid because of that warring planet.

It’s nice to see a celebrity publicizing some of the more detailed facets of astrology rather than just the Sun Sign.  In any case, Mr. Grammer is now embroiled in a new divorce from his third wife Camille and there is speculation that her role in The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills may have played a part in that decision.

Mr. Grammer has a well-publicized history of substance abuse (he began drinking when he was nine) that likely resulted from a tragic family life.  His parents were divorced when he was young, and the second time in his life that he saw his father, he was murdered on the front lawn of the family home.  His sister was raped and murdered in 1975, and his (fraternal) twin brother was killed in a freak accident in 1980.  So he can be forgiven for slipping into escapism from […]

Mel Gibson is being sued by everyone

Mel Gibson suedMel Gibson isn’t having a very good week.  First news reports announced that Gibson and his ex-wife Robyn were being sued for a construction company for over $200,000 in work performed on their Malibu home over the past twenty years.

Then TMZ reported that Gibson’s estranged girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva, with whom he fathered a son last year, obtained a restraining order against Gibson last week after telling a judge that he beat her up last January, despite the fact that the two continued traveling together after the alleged event.  Gossip rags speculate that Grigorieva is attempting to renegotiate the terms of the custody agreement and that Gibson was the first to file a restraining order against Grigorieva to keep her from discussing the terms of their agreement and other details of their relationship.

Mel Gibson has been in and out of the news for a variety of scandals since 2006 when he was arrested for drunk driving in Hollywood and released a torrent of anti-semitic language to the police.  Gibson (1/3/56, 4:45 pm, Peekskill NY) has the Sun in Capricorn which gives him a strong focus on responsibility and hard work.  His Sun is “angular,” sitting right on the descendant (cusp of the seventh house) of his chart, suggesting that he is a person who defines himself though his relationships.  He has the Moon in Libra, which echoes that need to be partnered, and he was married for 28 years which is a rarity in Hollywood.

Gibson has some challenging planetary systems in his chart, including a conjunction of Pluto (power issues) to Jupiter (philosophy and shared values). The combination of these two planets can indicate a person who seeks to impose through power and manipulation (Pluto) […]

Rob Pattinson and the Twilight Eclipse film premiere

Rob PattinsonI thought it was interesting that the premiere of The Twilight Saga: Eclipse film occurred the night of the actual lunar eclipse.  The Twilight Saga has given new sexiness to the vampire genre, and brought a reluctant Robert Pattinson into the limelight.

Rob Pattinson was born May 13, 1986 in London.  There are rumors of an 8:32 am birthtime, but until I see that time somewhere besides Astrotheme I won’t feel confident using it.   In any case, Pattinson’s astrological chart explains why he is more interested in the craft of acting than the ego-driven business of stardom.

Pattinson’s Sun is in Taurus, which craves comfort and security above all things, and his Moon is in its own sign of Cancer, the sign of extreme sensitivity and emotional depth.  The combination of Taurus and Cancer is oriented very strongly towards security of all kinds – emotional, financial, in business, etc.   His Moon is opposed by Neptune, so he is a dreamer and an artist.  Pattinson has a strong musical background, having played guitar and piano for much of his life.   This also gives him a strong romantic streak which is also reflected in Jupiter in his chart falling in the sign of Pisces, ruled by Neptune and also embodying the archetype of the artist and the creative individual.

Girls will be interested to know that despite Pattinson’s romantic streak relationships will always be complicated for him.  Although his Moon is in Cancer, which is very family-oriented and nurturing, Venus in his chart is in Gemini, a sign that requires a lot of variety of experiences, and Venus is opposed by Uranus which is the planet of change and freedom.  On one level Pattinson will always need […]

Sarah Silverman’s show is cancelled

Sarah Silverman, the outrageous but adorable comic star of Comedy Central’s “The Sarah Silverman Program,” has been canned from that network.  The Guardian calls Silverman “the most taboo-breaking comedian working in America today.”

The cancellation comes on the heels of  in which she did a comedy piece on adopting a retarded child that garnered terrible reviews from everyone including TED’s organizer.

Silverman’s astrological chart shows a highly creative conjunction of the Sun to Neptune in fun-loving Sagittarius, and Mercury (the mind) is in Sag as well.  Sagittarius is eternally optimistic, needing lots of freedom and room to expand one’s horizons.   Mercury in Silverman’s chart is in a challenging square to Pluto, taking her mind (Mercury) into the underworld (Pluto) of human darkness to find her (Sagittarian) humor.

Her Moon is in the more structured sign of Capricorn which drives her to be successful and to work harder than the Sagittarian nature is really comfortable with.  That Capricorn Moon can be somewhat cold and unemotional in its journey to success, especially since it’s in a challenging square to Uranus, planet of revolution and innovation. This Uranus/Moon square gives her that biting edge and that deeply rebellious sense of humor that seeks to break through all barriers of good taste and good sense.

Silverman has Mars (aggressive instincts) in Libra, the planet of harmony and relationships, which wraps the barbs of her commentary in a cocoon of Libra charm.

Transiting Uranus is has been setting off Silverman’s natal Mercury/Pluto square since last year, encouraging even more outrageous (Uranus) ideas (Mercury) that probe the boundaries of the subconscious (Pluto).  This transit will continue into next year, so we have not seen the last of Silverman’s iconoclastic and outrageous, yet adorable, antics.

Tom Cruise betrayed by Scientology leader

Tom Cruise Scientology MiscavigeMarty Rathbun was Inspector General of the Religious Technology Center of the Church of Scientology from 1978 until 2004 when he left the church.  Since then he has been a vocal critic of Scientology and offers the services he was trained for to “independent Scientologists” outside of the Church umbrella.

In a classic Mercury retrograde revelation, Rathbun writes of his recent discovery that David Miscavige, head of the Church of Scientology, used video and audio tapes of the confessional “auditing” sessions made with actor Tom Cruise as entertainment.  Rathbun writes,

I have recently learned from a very reliable witness that DM regularly held court with others in his personal lounge in the roadside Villas at the Int base, and while sipping scotch whiskey at the end of the night, Miscavige would read Tom’s overts and withholds from my reports to others, joking and laughing about the content of Tom’s confessions.  My witness is unimpeachable in my eyes as his account contains too many accurate details from someone who had zero reason (or ability) for being anywhere near Tom’s folders, videos and reports direct to DM.  I also know he was a regular, preferred guest at DM’s scotch night caps during that period.

You can read more about the astrology of Tom Cruise here. This revelation comes just as transiting Uranus (shock and surprise)  is in a challenging square to Cruise’s progressed Mars (drive and will), and his progressed Moon is exactly square to his natal Moon (a challenge to security).  In addition, transiting Chiron (wounding and healing) began a challenging opposition to the Sun (Self) in Cruise’s progressed chart in March 2010 that will continue throughout the year, […]
