Blog roundup!

I’m preparing for a class tonight so I thought I’d post some interesting links for you today:

Sasstrology covers the Jennifer Aniston/Gerard Butler romance, something I’ve been meaning to do myself but haven’t.

Elsa beats her cookie addiction.

Robert demystifies the house cusp question (for more advanced readers).

Dharmaruci returns to the site of the sweat lodge madness.

Frederick Woodruff dissects the Hanged Man (this card came up in nearly every reading I did Saturday night at a Mardi Gras party – can you say Saturn/Pluto?)

Saturn in Libra: Addicted to Plastic Surgery

Embed from Getty Images

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.

The astrology of the Leno/O’Brian late night drama

Embed from Getty Images

It’s no surprise to many of us that NBC’s attempt to save money by giving Jay Leno a variety show in the 10 pm slot has been a failure, and now some reports claim that NBC wants to move Leno back to the 11:35 pm time slot for a half hour show and keep Conan O’Brien, who took Leno’s place on the Tonight Show, but push back the start time to 12:05 am.
Both of these gentlemen are in the middle of planetary cycles that suggest change.  Jay Leno’s chart (April 28, 1950, 2:03 am, New Rochelle NY) shows that his progressed Sun is at 4 degrees Cancer and is fast approaching his progressed Uranus (culminating in June of this year).  This is a time of major change and perhaps liberation (Uranus) for him – it’s quite possible that he will retire or quit television entirely to pursue other interests.  With a Taurus (stability) Sun and Virgo (details) Moon he is not someone who craves change, but this upcoming Sun/Uranus event suggests surprise and change for him.
In addition, Saturn, Uranus and Pluto are all converging in a challenging aspect to this Sun/Uranus combination, creating challenges (Saturn), radical departure from his present experience (Uranus), and the ending of one phase in his life and the beginning of another (Pluto).
Conan O’Brien (April 18, 1963, 1:48 pm, Boston MA) has a much more adventurous chart.  He has the Sun in independent Aries, and although Virgo is rising (suggesting a need for details and a modest approach to life), Uranus (change and radical behavior) sits right on his ascendant (the point that describes the […]

The astrology of Rush Limbaugh’s health scare

Embed from Getty Images

Rush Limbaugh was rushed to the hospital in Hawaii suffering severe chest pains while on vacation to play golf, but his doctors were unable to find anything wrong with them.  He should have consulted an astrologer instead. 

Rush Limbaugh (1/12/1951, 7:50 am, Cape Girardeau MO) is, of course, a conservative talk show host whose listeners are known as “dittoheads.”  As astrologers, we often see the more extreme ideologies when there are inner conflicts between astrological signatures of conservatism (predominance of earth signs, Saturn) and signatures of liberal mindedness (air signs, Uranus).  That inner struggle between safety and security and more innovative thinking often results in an individual who becomes dogmatic on the right wing, or angrily rebellious on the left.

This is particularly true for those of us who have strong squares between Saturn and Uranus in our chart such as my own compatriots from the early 1950s.  Rush Limbaugh is one of those, with a nearly exact square between Saturn and Uranus, Aquarius, the innovator, is rising in his chart so in some ways you might expect Rush to tilt more to the left.  But with the Sun in Capricorn and Saturn opposite the Moon, that conservative bent won the battle between the two ideologies.  But more important, the opposition between Mars in Aquarius and Pluto shows an obsession with power that makes the conservative mind view much more comfortable than a more liberal perspective which Rush deems “weak.”  

It is no secret that Limbaugh has been addicted to prescription drugs for some time.  In 2003 he admitted his addiction to OxyContin and hydrocodone, and in 2006 he was arrested on fraud charges after he was found “shopping doctors” to write […]

Charlie Sheen’s Latest Marital Woes


The relationship problems of Charlie Sheen, a well-known American actor who has been acclaimed for his roles in such films as Platoon and Wall Street and in TV sitcoms Spin City and Two and a Half Men, have been well-documented.  n 1990 his engagement to actress Kelly Preston ended after he accidentally shot her in the arm and then left her for porn star Ginger Lynn.  In 1996 he was arrested for attacking a girlfriend at his home, for which he received probation. He was named in the Heidi Fleiss prostitution scandal and was hospitalized for a cocaine overdose in 1998.  His marriage to Denise Richards (2002-2005) and subsequent divorce were fraught with charges of Sheen’s abusive behavior.
Now Sheen has been arrested for “felony menacing” at his home in Aspen as the result of a 911 call from his wife, Brooke Mueller.  Mueller accused Sheen of attacking her with a knife, but police records show that she was legally drunk with a .13 alcohol reading.  Sheen told authorities that he had been defending himself against his wife.  Mueller later recanted her accusation and is no longer speaking to police at the time of this article.
Charlie Sheen is one of those “radical Virgos” whose dramatic behavior belie the typical characteristics of the Virgo Sun sign whose natives tend to be rather reticent and modest.  You would never think of a Virgo as having a penchant for porn and gambling.
Sheen is one of the “Uranus/Pluto” generation who were born between 1962 and 1968 when Uranus (radical change) and Pluto (death and rebirth) were conjunct in the sky.  This entire generation has a thirst for breaking down barriers (Uranus) in order to rebuild something that has […]
