The National Ledger has my latest update on the Britney Spears saga. This is what happens when you combine the Sagittarian blind optimism with an Aquarian Moon and throw in a square of Chiron to that Moon in the natal chart. Then add a stew of the Saturn/Neptune opposition transiting that Chiron/Moon square, and then Chiron transiting that Chiron/Moon square as well. Top it off with a dollop of Pluto square natal Mars and you get Britney in rehab. A sad, sad story.
Fred Thompson announced his bid for the presidential election last week just in time for the eclipse. You wouldn’t think an eclipse would be the best time to begin an endeavor like running for President, but Fred Thompson wouldn’t care about small things such as this.
With four planets in his chart including the Sun in Leo, the sign of royalty and kingship, Thompson is confident and certain in his powers of persuasion and ability to rule. Leo is generous, open, gregarious, and concerned primarily with celebration of the Self. Leo’s grand gestures and good deeds often have an underlying agenda that requires adulation and acclaim, particularly in those individuals who have not fully developed their egos and still require attention from outside of themselves in order to feel whole.
The placement of Venus in Leo shows his charisma and generosity of heart in relationship to others, and a conjunction of Pluto to Venus reveals an intensity in his nature that can manifest in a strong sexuality and sense of power. The Venus/Pluto conjunction is in a harmonious relationship (sextile) to a conjunction of Uranus and Saturn in his chart, which helps him to balance that intensity with a desire for freedom (Uranus) and a strength of character and self-discipline (Saturn).
Jupiter in the family-oriented sign of Cancer shows a strong need to care not only for the family, but for the entire tribe with which Thompson feels affiliated. Combined with the intense loyalty that is a signature of Leo, Thompson will reward any entity or being that has supported him, and this could be the underlying reason for his loyalty to corporations both as a lobbyist and with his votes against […]
A few days ago I posted on Owen Wilson’s hospitalization which has now been confirmed as a suicide attempt. A USA Today article writes:
Over the years, Owen Wilson projected the public image of a happy-go-lucky, Hollywood playboy.
His crooked-nosed good looks and jovial attitude suggested a young man who was laid-back, slightly damaged from hard-but-satisfying living, and otherwise in total control of his excellent fortune and success.
There has been no public intoxication, no arrests, no whispers of excessive moodiness or violent outbursts. He gave no gloomy interviews or discussed any emotional imbalance in his life.
We don’t know Wilson’s time of birth so we don’t know his ascendant, or rising sign. Since the rising sign shows our outward persona, it is the most visible and the easiest to guess. My guess for Owen Wilson is a Sagittarius ascendant.
Wilson’s chart shows a number of planets in intense Scorpio which is much deeper and darker than the Sag ascendant, which may have locked him and his emotions in a prison of which the Sagittarian or similar ascendant was the jailer. A dear friend of mine was a double Sag with a strong Pluto/Scorpio component to his chart which very few people ever saw. He locked that side of himself away and died Friday of cancer at the age of 46. Perhaps there was no connection, but I will always wonder.
I can’t emphasize enough how important it is to make friends with every aspect of your chart. This is what is required in order to become a fully integrated human!
It’s hard to imagine one of entertainment’s funniest and most lovable characters in such a dark place that he would try to end his life, but that is apparently what Owen Wilson did over the weekend. Wilson was most recently tabloid fodder when his relationship with Kate Hudson ended earlier this year, and the news of his hospitalization with a slit wrist and ingestion of a bottle of pills coincided with announcements of starring roles in two new films.
Owen Wilson has the Sun in Scorpio, along with three other planets (Neptune, Mercury and the Moon), giving him an exceptionally strong intensity and passion in everything he does. Scorpio is a fiery water sign that is anchored in the realm of the emotional underworld; the dark and deep underbelly of our feelings that others may fear to witness. There is a great deal of courage in the Scorpio personality, since they are the ones willing to face their inner demons and become transformed by them. This doesn’t sound like the Owen Wilson that we see in films, but this is due to the fact that it is actually the sign that is rising in the chart, the ascendant or rising sign, that describes the outward personality. The rising sign is determined by the time of birth, and this is rarely available for celebrities so all we can do is make a guess, and in Wilson’s case I would guess his rising sign to be something fiery such as Leo or Sagittarius. Wilson himself has said that he is surprised he ended up in comedy, because he was so serious in high school. However, the inner Owen […]
Amy Winehouse has been rebelling since an early age when she was expelled from school at the age of 12 for piercing her own nose. Her music career began with her own rap duo at age 10. She started playing guitar at 13 and at by the age of 20 her first album was released. She is an incredibly creative woman, with loads of talent and a provocative and unabashedly raw and honest display of herself that defies any effort to categorize or define her.
In 2006 Amy fired her management company for trying to “stick” her into rehab, and then wrote a song about the experience. Although for a long time she denied having a drug and alcohol problem, she appeared drunk and stoned on several television shows last year and has admitted to being troubled by bulimia and eating disorders as well as a temper and a tendency toward violent behavior.
This year Amy has won an astonishing number of musical awards but has also appeared frequently in the tabloids due to her bizarre behavior. In May she married her new husband after a month-long courtship, and several weeks ago the two of them entered rehab after a 3-day bender of multiple drugs and alcohol that left Amy in a coma. They walked out after five days. Subsequent to that she cancelled her summer concerts, and most recently cancelled September concerts as well.
Amy Winehouse is a Virgo (see chart), the sign known for its reticent and modest behavior which just shows how little validity Sun Sign astrology has. There is another brand of Virgo which some call the “Radical Virgo” in which the famous Virgo powers […]
