Michael Vick: An Astrological Portrait of Frustration

Michael Vick plead guilty today to dogfighting charges at the state level after serving nearly a year for federal charges.  The horrific nature of these crimes, which as an animal lover I cannot bear to repeat in this column, led me to investigate his astrological chart (born 6/26/1980, time unknown, Newport News VA) to look for clues to his behavior.  I am in no way excusing the actions of criminals in this kind of chart research – Vick’s chart did not doom him to cruelty and he always had the choice to choose a different path.

The psychospiritual development of a human being is the result of a combination of the psychological and spiritual factors in the birthchart, the family environment, and the choices that we make at every moment of our lives.  The raw material in a birthchart will not help us to predict which individuals will become psychopathic criminals and a criminal may share a birthchart with a brillliant philanthropist.  It is easier to look back and see clues in the birthchart that can help to explain where the psychopathic behavior originates.

In the case of Michael Vick, his Sun is in Cancer, the sign of emotional sensitivity.  Cancer is a difficult sign for a man – its extreme sensitivity often does not easily find expression in most societies where men are expected to be strong and emotional sensitivity often becomes buried.  Obviously, there are many Cancer men who have successfully integrated the need for caring into their lives but for Michael Vick the Cancer is a starting point in an analysis of a personality which has not integrated this dynamic.

Jupiter (confidence and expansion) in Vick’s chart forms a harmonious aspect (sextile) to […]

Bronx Mowgli Wentz!

wentzSinger Ashlee Simpson and and her rocker husband Pete Wentz have welcomed a child into the world: Bronx Mowgli Wentz (11/20/2008, time unknown, NYC).  You can tell without even glancing at his astrological chart that he will have quite an unusual beginning!  What a name – named after Bronx, New York, most eclectic of the boroughs, and Mowgli, the child of Rudyard Kipling and Disney tales who was raised by a pack of wolves who goes through quite an identity crisis before deciding to join the human pack.

Bronx Mowgli was born under the sign of Scorpio, at the critical 29th degree.  The 29th degree of any sign signifies a life of transition and growth – it’s kind of a “last chance” to get things right.  This is a significant lifetime for little Bronx Mowgli and there will be a necessity for him to plow into Scorpio experiences that will help him to perfect the Scorpio challenge of living a life that fearlessly delves into the underworld of emotional intensity, passion, and power.  His Sun conjuncts both Mars and Mercury, although Mars (the aggressive drive and instinct) is in Sagittarius instead of Scorpio which suggests that he will be torn between the need to remain focused in the emotional realm (Scorpio) and the need to expand his horizons and search for experiences that are lighter and more buoyant (Sagittarius).  Still, with Mercury  (thought and communication) in Scorpio along with the Sun, he will be an intense little guy who is passionate about everything.

We don’t know exactly what time he was born but we do know that it was Thursday night, so Bronx Mowgli’s Moon is in Virgo, revealing that his emotional nature (Moon) will […]

The End of Celebrity Journalism?

TMZ 2006One of the things I most like to post about on this blog is celebrity profiles and profiles on celebrity couples.  First of all, with Gemini rising I love a good gossip.  But more important, they make great demonstrations of how great a tool astrology can be to help understand the underlying personality characteristics that drive us to behave in certain ways.

Pluto’s travel through Sagittarius, the sign that rules, among other things, journalism, entertainment and celebrity, has brought the passion for celebrity journalism to an obsessive (Pluto) crescendo.  Princess Diana was supposedly killed (Pluto) fleeing a pack of papparazzi (Sagittarius) back in 1995.  The furor over Paris Hilton and other celebrities famous only for being famous is a hallmark of Pluto in Sag.

Usually when life is difficult people turn to fantasy for comfort, such as during the recession of the early 1980s when TV shows like Dynasty and Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous were very popular. (It’s an interesting factoid that Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous began in 1982 and ended in 1995, following exactly the timing of Pluto’s trip through Scorpio).  But with Pluto  soon to be firmly settled into Capricorn for the next 15 years, the obsessive interest in celebrity seems to be on the wane.

This is nowhere more evident than in the decline of, one of the brashest and most Sagittarian of the celebrity blogs:

It would be unrealistic to say the end is near for, the gossip website founded by Harvey Levin that Mel Gibson’s anti-Semitic tirade put on the map. But all signs are pointing to trouble for the AOL-Telepictures celebrity venture. Readership is down. So is revenue. […]

Anne Hathaway’s Neptune Problem

hathaway_follieriAnne Hathaway’s ex-boyfriend, Raffaello Follieri. spent his 30th birthday in jail after being convicted for 14 counts of fraud and money laundering.  Columnists are debating how much Anne actually knew about what Raffaello was up to when he represented himself as a representative of the Vatican in order to swindle billionaire Ron Burkle out of millions of dollars – perhaps astrology can tell why Anne fell for Follieri.

Anne Hathaway has appeared to live life as charmed as the princess she played in the Princess Diaries.  Raised in affluent Millburn New Jersey, she has been acting since she was thirteen and is a trained soprano as well as stage actress.  Her first break came at age 16 when she starred in a failed TV series, and she has worked steadily in major films ever since.  She is the new face of Lancome beauty products.

Anne’s astrological chart (11/12/1982, birthtime unknown) shows a quadruple conjunction of the Sun, Mercury, Venus and Jupiter.  Venus and Jupiter are the two most beneficial planets in the astrological language.  When Venus is fused with the Sun (the Self) in the birthchart, it grants beauty and the power of attraction.  Jupiter, the planet of prosperity and abundance, joins the Sun and Venus to create a powerfully positive charge in Anne’s life.  This is a trio of luck and good fortune, and nearly certain success.  People with a strong Jupiter in their charts often are confident and assured, with a strong sense of social justice and moral guidelines, and the presence of Mercury (mind and communication) there explains her strong intelligence and ability to slip in and out of roles as an actor.  Mercury can be a bit of a shapeshifter and enjoys […]
