I admit it. I’ve been confused. Please remember that astrology isn’t wrong. That would be me. So this is what is happening. One factor that seems to dominate the current electoral season is name recognition. In this climate, people are not looking for a newcomer. I wish I could look at the chart of The United States for that one, but I don’t believe we have the right date. July 4,1776 doesn’t work. So why the country is in this mood? No answers for that.

We’re left with two viable candidates, Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden. They’re old. But apparently old is good right now. The horror show that has been Donald Trump requires the security that known people bring to the table.

As I’ve talked about, there are three people with the enviable Jupiter chart, Kamala Harris, Pete Buttigieg and Tom Steyer. This is how this is going to play out if Biden wins. Kamala will be his Vice President so this is her Jupiter reward. (As of this date he has not picked anyone.) Pete clearly endorsed Biden only after he got the position he wanted — so a cabinet spot? Tom Steyer entered the race late and never gained any traction. I imagine he will continue his good work with much more name recognition. Not exactly clear how Jupiter is benefiting him, but confident it is. And even Mike Bloomberg will win, without a Jupiter chart, since his goal was to remove Trump.

Elizabeth Warren, who effectively removed Bloomberg from the race with her shrewish grilling, has the worst chart of the bunch. The only way Elizabeth would ever be president is to be Bernie’s VP and Bernie die in office. Bernie’s chart is that bad, and I still worry about his health. So Biden in a spectacular sweep, with little money and no on the ground presence, will be the Democratic candidate. That’s the Jupiter promise.

But here we go again. Trump has the best chart for the general election. I’m not going to say that Biden will win. And yet it makes the people around him make sense. It fulfills their charts. So, I’m still confused. Is Trump so awful that Jupiter can’t save him? He survived the Mueller Report. He survived impeachment removal. He has stumped me before. Astrology is perfect. Xtrology isn’t because it depends on me. Am I missing something? I’ll let you know. You could let me know. Let me hear from you.

Maybe the god known as Obama will step up at the last minute?

Everyone is all riled up today because Elizabeth Warren gave a tour de force performance last night at the Democratic Debate. People are generally rooting for her that she took charge and held the other candidates accountable. But, and this is a big one, unless she is going to be the candidate, all she did is hurt the Democratic Party. Should we be applauding or cringing?

Liz is a Cancer with Uranus (giving her a little Aquarius leaning) conjunct her Sun. And to further that extreme sensitivity, her Moon in Taurus (exalted there) is her focal planet. Touchy, touchy. Venus is in its rulership in Cancer, but more Cancer! Mars is in intelligent Gemini. Not an evil or crazy chart but her feelings are close to the surface at all times.

Now the big question. Can she be the Democratic candidate? Her chart is extremely negative. Just ending, predictive Venus conjunct Neptune. Normally this is a secret or a lie, but it’s over. The predictive Sun is conjunct the malefic planet Saturn — normally a depressing time, but at least restrictive on a huge scale. However, even more important her predictive Sun is square natal Mars. This, to me, is as bad as it gets. Mars is malefic and angry and violent at times.

So all that raging last night? If Elizabeth were going to be the candidate that might have shown she has spunk. But if she isn’t, and I say that she isn’t, she is simply hurting the other candidates. If the Democrats lose, Elizabeth Warren will be part of the reason. There are three other debates. It is highly likely that even at the next one, people won’t be singing her praises, they’ll be calling her a toxic bitch.

Ben Affleck describes what it feels like to have a Scorpio Moon, “People with compulsive behavior, and I am one, have this kind of basic discomfort all the time that they’re trying to make go away,” he said a couple of Sundays ago during a two-hour interview at a beachside spot in Los Angeles. “You’re trying to make yourself feel better with eating or drinking or sex or gambling or shopping or whatever. But that ends up making your life worse. Then you do more of it to make that discomfort go away. Then the real pain starts. It becomes a vicious cycle you can’t break. That’s at least what happened to me.”

This is a reblog from August 20, 2018:

“This is serious and no joke for a guy that hardly knows how to take a joke.

Ben Affleck is a Leo Sun. (See “Ben and Jen Rumors True?”) But the fun stops there. He has Cancer rising. All the negative signs are difficult as rising signs because that’s where the negativity comes in. I find that Cancer rising always thinks their life is not as good as everyone else’s. Yes, I said that. Ben has a Scorpio Moon which really is just another way of saying PERSONALITY DISORDER. Not really. But really. And Mars is his focal sign — all about his way. No picnic here.

But wait. I have a warning for Mr. Affleck. And this is as serious as a heart attack. Actually I shouldn’t say that. It’s not a joke. By the first of the year he will have his predictive Mars sitting on natal and predictive Pluto. Two evil planets: Predictive Mars and Pluto, Pluto, Pluto. (Not in a good aspect, but definitely in a bad one.) And at the same time (when Mars changes signs), he will also have Mars square Jupiter. This guy needs a heads up. He thinks his life sucks. No, that was a warm up for what is to come. All that good fortune he has experienced will go up in smoke. This is a completely clueless guy walking into a shit storm. You treat your life like you’re above it all, and life has a nasty way of proving you wrong.

And that tattoo! How high were you?”

I’m getting older but not necessarily wiser. Actually lazier. I thought, don’t kill yourself doing all these charts. Wait until there are just a few candidates left. So I did that. And apparently my bias led me to not do Pete Buttigieg’s chart at all. I thought no one in the midwest is going to vote for a gay man. I openly said we are not ready. Sometimes you do just love being wrong.

Pete Buttigieg is the earth sign Capricorn which rules that 10th House of Career. Capricorns are the goat climbing the rocky mountain. Tough as nails. His Mercury is in the humanitarian sign of Aquarius along with his Venus. His Moon is in the truthful sign of Sagittarius. Mars is in Libra is not a great placement — very passive/aggressive. This is his only true weakness. He keeps his anger inside. Right now I’m onboard with a president S(ing)TFU — you know what I mean. There are no focal planets. And he has Virgo rising, a sign I like because they are smart, and they miss nothing. He has two loaded houses, the 2nd House of Money and the 3rd House of Communication. He’s not crazy or weird. He’s a regular person. Why he wants this job I don’t know.

And here’s the news (to me). Buttigieg is in Jupiter! Trump is also in Jupiter, a Grand Jupiter Trine. I believe only someone else in Jupiter can beat him. Pete has a completely positive chart with predictive Venus sitting on his natal Sun which will make people fall in love with him.

I also like Bloomberg, because money speaks volumes. But I was looking at his chart yesterday and just feeling depressed. He doesn’t have the chart to beat Trump. Bernie has a death chart. It’s going to be a miracle if he makes it to the election. He should be home taking care of himself. Why isn’t he releasing his medical records? I thought, we don’t have a viable candidate.

Buttigieg is still gay. But Obama was black. Don’t underestimate the American people to pick the best person for the job. If we don’t get this election right, in four years we may not be having elections. Buttigieg is young, he is normal, he has served his country, and he’s in a loving relationship. We can handle this. I predict we will. I predict Pete Buttigieg will be our next president. In the midst of all this craziness, we need someone sane. And he’s already proving it in two states, Iowa and New Hampshire. Let’s see what happens in Nevada. I’m excited for the first time in this contest. I have hope. We can be saved. The Democrats have a candidate that isn’t falling apart (Kamala) or entering too late (Steyer). Oh, and just as a little more motivation to vote for Buttigieg. He will be in Jupiter all four years unlike Obama who went out of Jupiter six months in.

Honestly, I didn’t think Shannon Doherty would make it through her last battle with cancer. Her aspects were negative and predictive Mars was sitting on transiting Pluto. But she defied the odds and survived with the help of a terrific support system. The question is, can she do it again?

Shannon is an Aries Sun, the brat of the Universe. And isn’t that how we think of her? Her Moon is in Scorpio in its fall & we’ve talked about this a lot, it’s a difficult placement. There’s anger involved with Pluto. And I’ve always thought cancer and anger were close relatives. Venus in Pisces is exalted. So for all her flaws, she is a loving, giving person. Mercury is in Taurus. That makes her stubborn along with Mars as a focal planet — stubborn like a bulldozer. She’s going to need that now. Two other focal planets are Neptune which can cloud your vision and Jupiter which causes overindulgence.

Her current aspects are predictive Venus opposing her Moon. Emotionally she’s drained as anyone going through this would be. Pluto the planet that tried to kill her a couple of years ago is going out of orb. A negative aspect from Pluto usually accompanies death. So will this be yet another reprieve? It’s entirely possible.

She is also involved in some kind of insurance situation. I would tell her to hold on to her energy for the fight of her life. This is not where she wants to expend it. If only she could put that on hold and turn her total focus to restoring her health. Honestly, Shannon, you did it once. You fought a powerful fight, and you won. Put 100% of your attention to your health as this is a serious situation. Anger is your enemy now.

Please send Shannon positive thoughts for a speedy and effortless recovery!

It looks like it’s over. Today the Senate voted against witnesses in the Trump impeachment trial. Without witnesses, the public will continue to have doubts as to Trump’s guilt. And without public pressure, the senators will vote to exonerate him. And life goes on. Or so it would seem. But in fact, the rule of law has been broken and lawlessness may ensue. If we can overlook a president bribing a country to help in his re-election, there isn’t too much left that’s worse — and a lot left that’s just as bad.

I don’t want to tell you that I told you so. No, I really do. Trump is in Jupiter, double Jupiter, a Grand Jupiter Trine that protects. People don’t usually have any desire to be committing crimes during this period because they are happy. But you have the occasional psychopath that doesn’t really distinguish between right and wrong.

As long as I’m bragging I also want to admit that I was wrong about Trump being the candidate in 2016. It should have been Chris Christie, but it also could have been Marco Rubio or Ted Cruz. Christie fell apart. I’ve really never seen anyone in powerful Jupiter collapse quite so dramatically. There has to be a little cooperation on your part to allow Jupiter to work — obviously. You can fail in Jupiter, but it’s difficult and shocking. But the most shocking thing I’ve ever experienced was someone not in Jupiter rolling past the people that were. Donald Trump wasn’t. And he still won the nomination. I cannot explain that. And I’ve never seen it happen before or since.

However, during this election, 2020, Trump is in Jupiter. Therefore the only people that can beat him are other people in Jupiter. That would be Andrew Yang and Tom Steyer. I am really worried we are going to have a Democratic nominee that can’t beat Trump. Trump’s crazy win won’t likely happen again. That was an abnormality in the Universe.

I’ve been saying Trump is in Jupiter, but he’s proving it. He escaped The Mueller Report and it looks like he’s escaping being removed by impeachment. (Bernie Madoff was in Jupiter when he was committing his crimes, but it was over when he was sent to jail. Casey Anthony was in Jupiter when she was acquitted.) And I’m telling you now, that unless he is opposed by a candidate that can win, he will be president again. It’s very hard for me to write those words — and even harder to believe them. Astrologically, Trump will win. Please let the Universe right itself and make me wrong again.

And please do your part in getting the candidate you want elected. Your country depends on it.

Thomas Markle isn’t a great guy, but don’t parents get some credit for all the parenting things they do? Bringing up a child, an eighteen year commitment, seems like a big deal to me. He didn’t abuse her. She had food on the table. By all accounts her childhood was pretty normal. Can’t she cut him a break? All fathers embarrass you. You always have that family member. I say give him some money. Write a check. Shut him up. Unless there is more to this…

Thomas Markle is a Cancer Sun/Moon/Saturn. Cancer Sun people are sensitive water signs of the cardinal variety. And it’s complicated, because their feelings will dominate your life as they dominate their lives. For some of the natives, you are walking on eggshells every day all day. And even the ones that seem normal, not really, they don’t miss anything. Every nuance. Every gesture. They pick it up and process it. The adult ones can navigate successfully with great insight into the nature of the Universe, but if you get a cosmic baby, you’re going to suffer the effects of their ups and downs.

You may remember Saturn conjunct the Moon is the same thing as a Capricorn Moon — the most difficult (in addition to Scorpio) in the zodiac. Where to start? First, they are charming to the max. Libra Suns have trouble keeping up with this Moon sign when it comes to dazzle. If someone is saying all the right things and you are feeling heard like you never have before, it could be the Capricorn Moon sucking you into their orbit. So Markle has a sensitive Cancer Moon with Capricorn influence — you have to know this man is a bundle of hurt if things don’t go his way. He’s going to make your life as miserable as he feels his is. Happy, he’s a joy. Unhappy, he will drag you down with him. So if this is a family member, learn to deal with it so it doesn’t become an ongoing never-goes-away problem. That is if you’re a grown up with grown up emotions. And if you’re not? Now we have a legendary clash. That’s what happens when you’re as needy as he is.

So what are the aspects involved in this drama — that can help or exacerbate the situation? Markle’s predictive Sun is square his natal Moon, probably since I don’t know the time — but likely given the situation. And as he already has natal Moon problems, this really is just icing to a pot boiling over. Mr. Sensitivity is Mr. Hyper-sensitivity. There are several good aspects, but usually it’s the bad ones that dominate. Unless people are willing to compromise and I wouldn’t start with Thomas, it will become and stay a battle of the wills.

In a spectacular tragedy, Kobe Bryant, long time member of the L.A. Lakers and 5-time champion, died today in a helicopter crash along with his 13-year old daughter and seven others. Could Kobe have known this ahead of time?

This man, who is held is very high esteem by his peers, is a member of the hard working community of Virgo. With Saturn conjunct, Capricorn also serves as an influence adding to his earth element determination. Mercury is in the sign of Leo giving his speech a show biz flair. Venus and Mars are conjunct in Libra (in addition to Pluto) which triggers off a double Libra influence for Mars. His Moon is exalted in Taurus. Mercury is the focal planet.

I would expect to see a strong transiting Pluto influence as Pluto rules death, but for Kobe it comes in the form of his natal Pluto/Mars (death/all forms of travel) being conjuncted by predictive Mercury (short trips). Predictive Mars is also opposing his natal Moon. Mars is the bad boy of the predictive zodiac. It creates an atmosphere of violence on some level. So there is reason to expect a challenge — despite the fact the transiting Pluto/Saturn could be considered out-of-orb of a square. Still it would be well to treat these powerful aspects with respect — to use great care in travel — which is not to say that Kobe didn’t. Care and caution work sometimes and other times the negative energy is too strong.

Group accidents depend on the astrology charts of all involved. And really I never get to look at these as the birthdays aren’t available. But each of the nine people had to have a chart that would support death at this time. Maybe someday we’ll have a computer program that makes a determination that the group is safe to fly. Don’t smirk — in the future when people take astrology more seriously.

Nine souls have moved to the astral plane. Rest in peace to them all.

Ozzie Osbourne told GMA today that he has been diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease. It’s a disease of the central nervous system. The cause is unknown. But likely it has something to do with Ozzie’s history with alcohol and drugs. And it’s painful. I didn’t know that. Louise Haye says Parkinson’s is created by fear and an intense desire to control. And the pain by guilt which always seeks punishment.

Ozzie is a charmer. He’s Sagittarius with the positive, exuberant, outgoing personality that comes with it. And his Scorpio rising, gives him the dark, intense, sexy, magnetic persona. Venus/Mercury/Saturn conjunct his Sun adds complication. Fodder for the bad boy. And with Uranus as a focal planet, a quirky, don’t-rein-me-in, rebel attitude. Moon in Virgo. Mars in Taurus. You’ve got to love him. That is unless you are married to him as Sharon Osbourne is. Then he’s trouble. Lots of it. As a rock and roll superstar, Ozzie’s fun. As a husband, he’s been the cause of a lot of heartache.

With today’s diagnosis, we find Ozzie’s predictive Venus opposing his Pluto and Mercury inconjunct it. I wouldn’t have suspected such a dire prognosis with these aspects. Despite the fact, you don’t want to mess with Pluto as this is the planet where much karma is reaped. But it’s just an opposition/inconjunct. Difficult but not that dramatic. That’s today. The future, however, is challenging in a way that is consistent with a serious illness. His predictive Mercury (which rules the nerves) will square Neptune. Hidden illnesses. And he will also have his predictive Sun opposing Uranus. Surprises. The symptoms of the illness started a little early, but it was coming all along. Ozzie seems to be very reality based. He’s not running away. And looking at his chart, it will stay for a very long time. This is a difficult chapter in Ozzie’s and his family’s life.

I loved Michelle Obama’s book, Becoming. It really helps you understand who she is. And you’re going to like her. If you have a person with a lot of squares, too many focal planets or too many planets that are debilitated or in their fall, you get drama. Want to guess? Michelle doesn’t have these. (These bad aspect people aren’t hopeless, just challenged.) It’s easy for Michelle to be Michelle. She’s effortless.

Michelle is a Capricorn Sun/Mercury. Her Moon is in the compassionate sign of Pisces along with her Venus where it is exalted. Her Mars is in the other humanitarian sign of Aquarius conjunct Saturn — which gives it the qualities of Saturn. Mars is exalted in Capricorn/Saturn. No focal planets. Not that many squares. (We all have some squares. Too many planets not to.) Again just a nice person. Classy. Lots of that forgotten trait of integrity. No hint of personality disorders that you see in so many famous people.

Currently, not much going on in her chart. Her predictive Sun/Mercury are conjunct. Both are positive planets. Her predictive Mars is trine Neptune. Predictive Venus is trine Uranus. Very creative, loving and energizing. She can do whatever she wants right now.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Michelle! Thanks for being such an icon.
