Happy Birthday Charlie Watts!

Shy but versatile Rolling Stones' drummer Charlie Watts was born this day in 1941. Charlie has Jupiter in Gemini ruled by Mercury in Cancer. Like Bob Dylan (who also had a long career in the Music business and features in "Growing Pains") Charlie has Saturn in ever enduring Taurus and  is one of the richest drummers in the world.

Happy Birthday Marilyn Monroe!!

Marilyn Monroe, who would have been 89 today, features in "Growing Pains". Lovely Marilyn had Jupiter in Aquarius (ruled by Uranus in Pisces) and Saturn in Scorpio (Pluto in Cancer). She learned best through experimenting (Jupiter in Aquarius) and made a career from being a sex symbol Saturn in Scorpio (ruled by Pluto in Cancer).

I've heard a lot of outrageous accusations against the maligned Mercury Retrograde. . .but this has to be the best.
Or it could be one hell of a Pluto to Venus transit!
On the serious side. . .

Marina Abramovic is a brilliant performance artist and she's coming to London!

No prizes for guessing who HAS to go see her exhibition. . .

A New Royal Rebel is Born!

Astrological characteristics between generations always have a tale to tell. Like her grandmother, the new royal baby has a Moon-Uranus opposition so the House of Windsor had better batten down the hatches!! Also, the new baby's Mars is almost in conjunction with Algol (William and Diana have Venus conjunct Algol) so it's a very interesting, if a little intense, chart indeed! Baby brother George's descendant is conjunct Algol and little sister's Mars so don't bet on these two cherubs getting on very well.

The baby's ascendant is conjunct her father's Moon and Grandma Di's Mercury. How adorable is that? We may not have Diana here with us physically but it's so wonderful this new baby has inherited the old Spencer charm. Please please please name the baby Diana or Frances!!

The ruling planet of the new baby's chart is conjunct William's Pluto and Diana's MC. William is going to be one protective father and god help the paparazzi when the kid hits puberty. You think 'those shots' of a topless Kate made him mad? Just you wait until around August 2026 at her first Jupiter return. With Jupiter in Leo, that girl is going to love the spotlight and hate it when daddy tries to shield her from it. However, her down to earth Sun in Taurus in the 11th might calm this tendency.

Another interesting feature of this new baby's chart is Mercury in Gemini opposite to Saturn in Sagittarius. Mercury is extra strong in Gemini but with an opposition from Saturn, she may be a little reluctant to hit the books. Of course oppositions mean extremes so we could have a major academic on our hands (Mercury also rules the 3rd house). William's Uranus is conjunct her Saturn so while she may steady him, he may very well encourage that rebellious streak. One possible scenario is that William will encourage her to marry someone who shakes up the royal blood a little (Pluto in Capricorn descendant ruled by Saturn in 5th and Pluto ruling the 5th house).

No doubt there will be more and more astrological commentary on this baby. Personally, I don't like to say too much about babies but as this is a royal one and as I, a British tax payer, am contributing  to her upkeep, I reckon I can put my two pence in!

The Day the Music Cashed In


That would be the sound of Don McLean cashing in on nearly a million pounds for finally revealing the "secrets" of the lyrics for "The Day the Music Died."

With Jupiter stationing on his natal Pluto as we speak, that's not bad going!

As luck would have it, I'm speaking on the subject at the Astrological Association's conference in September!! 

If you can't wait that long, you can read an old version of the astrological story here.

By the way, free daily horoscopes are back!! Here's the link! Don't forget to like, share and tweet!
