The astrology of Corey Haim

Corey Haim, the 1980s child star who made a career out of attempting a comeback, died the other night from what coroners say was an enlarged heart and fluid in the lungs.  Haim had a long history of drug addiction and was apparently admitted to rehab on fifteen different occasions, but it wasn’t drugs that killed him, at least not directly, but the devastation of 20 years of drug abuse had already taken their toll.

Haim had the Sun in achievement-oriented Capricorn, in a nearly exact square (challenging aspect) to Pluto, planet of death and renewal.  With the Sun in Capricorn his desire for success and to make a mark on the world was a driving force in his life, but he also had Jupiter, the planet of good luck and optimism, in its own sign of Sagittarius where it is particularly powerful.  Jupiter in Sagittarius is the party boy – the Fool in the Tarot deck that operates through blind faith, ready to step off a cliff because he is looking at the sky, but nearly always landing on his feet.  His Mercury was in Sagittarius as well, suggesting that there was a big part of him that didn’t want to be serious or focus on the future, in spite of the Capricorn Sun.

That Sun/Pluto square nearly always signifies great potential, such as in the charts of Jon Stewart, Maya Angelou, Sally Field and Barbra Streisand; but it can also signify great tragedy and self-destruction, such as Tiger Woods, Mark David Chapman (John Lennon’s murderer), and occasionally have a transformative effect on the world for good or for evil, such as L Ron Hubbard (founder of Scientology).  The intense pressure that Pluto puts on the Sun […]

Noami Campbell’s Anger Management problem

Supermodel Naomi Campbell is back in the news after beating a chauffeur with her fist for not telling her whether her boyfriend was cheating on her.

Back in 2006 I wrote this article about Naomi Campbell for the National Ledger, and I’ve updated to reflect her current transits.

Naomi CampbellNaomi Campbell was one of the top supermodels, and one of few whose successful career has spanned decades.  Although her official biography claims that she was discovered on the street at the age of fifteen, she was actually the daughter of a fashion designer and sometime model.  She was a trailblazer–the first black model to appear on the cover of Time Magazine, and French and British Vogue.  When most supermodels of the 1990s had lost their luster, Naomi became a successful entrepreneur with her own cosmetics and fragrance line.  However, all this success has not come without a price.

Naomi Campbell is famous not only for her legendary looks, but for her legendary temper as well.  In 1998 she was sued by a former assistant who claimed Naomi beat her with a telephone.  In 2003 Campbell was fired from a Vogue photo shoot after arriving five hours late, refusing to pose and screaming at everyone including her assistant. The owner of the Elite Modeling Agency, John Casablanca’s, revealed in a 2005 article in the Daily News that Campbell was abusive and impossible to work with, and in 2005 her former best friend and fellow model Yvonne Scio accused her of assaulting her when Scio wore the same dress as Campbell.   She also maintained a fifteen year feud with fellow model Tyra Banks, and later revealed that she had been jealous of Tyra’s close relationship with her mother.  They finally reconciled last fall […]

The astrology of depression: Andrew Koenig

. Andrew Koenig, the son of Walter Koenig who played Pavel Chekov in the original Star Trek series, has been missing since February 14th.  He was last seen at a bakery in Vancouver.  Koenig is an actor who is best known as Kirk Cameron’s sidekick in the long-running television series “Growing Pains.”  Some of Koenig’s friends fear the worst, reporting that he had been depressed and fed up with his life in California. He sold all of his possessions and walked away from his home in Venice on February 4.

Koenig (8/17/1968, time unknown, LA CA)  is 41, the age at which transiting Uranus opposes Uranus in the birthchart, and because he is one of those “Uranus/Pluto” people who were born between 1962 and 1968, that Uranus opposition is particularly intense.  Briefly, Uranus is the planet of rebellion and revolutionary change, and Pluto, the planet of death and rebirth, presides over experiences that transform us from the ground up.  This cohort of people carry this archetype of revolutionary change within them.

The Uranus Opposition is a planetary cycle in which Uranus in the sky opposes Uranus in the birthchart.  It occurs at age 40-42, and is the most intense of the “midlife crisis” transits, generating an urge to break free of whatever is holding us back.  For this age group, because Uranus opposes not only natal Uranus but also natal Pluto, this time period is even more urgent and powerful and necessitates a letting go of the past in order to move forward into the future.

Pluto squares his Moon, or his emotions, and Andrew’s former landlordthat Andrew did not have a good relationship with his mother (the Moon often, but […]

Saturn in Libra: Addicted to Plastic Surgery

Heidi Montag, star of MTV’s The Hills but best known for an apparent starvation for attention, has confessed that she is addicted to plastic surgery. This is bad enough when we’re talking about aging starlets, but Heidi was a beautiful girl of 21 when she had her first surgeries, abreast augmentation to a C cup and rhinoplasty. Her recent surgeries, at the age of 23, included liposuction and buttocks augmentation, an “upgrade” for her “boob job,” a chin reduction, pinning back her ears. And yet she says, “I’m just starting,” she says. “Let’s just say there’s a lot of maintenance. Nobody ages perfectly, so I plan to keep using surgery to make me as perfect as I can be. Because, for me, the surgery is always so rewarding.”

I have been saying that Saturn in Libra will test our standards of beauty, but I couldn’t have anticipated this. In a society where teens are given cosmetic surgeries for graduation gifts, reality shows portray ordinary people receiving extreme makeovers, and an MTV show called “I Want a Famous Face” turns unique individuals into clones of their favorite movie star – Saturn arrives in Libra not a moment too soon.

But the question is, will teens look at Heidi’s makeover from beautiful girl to plastic sex toy and be horrified, or will they want to emulate her? In any case, the discussion over how far is too far has certainly begun.
