Whitney bowed out in 2012

Whitney Houston

Many factors contribute to the astrological story. This sketch on Whitney Houston focuses on Jupiter and Saturn. Whitney Houston was born into a loving musical family and achieved incredible success. Still she could not escape the nightmare of addiction. Houston was born on 9 August 1963 at 20:55 in Newark New Jersey (Rodden Rating: AA; Collector: Rodden). She had Jupiter in Aries and Saturn in Aquarius. Whitney Houston was one of the most successful music artists of all-time. She achieved the rare feat of being popular with both white and black audiences. Readily available information around Whitney’s early childhood is sparse […]

Titanic Trenoweth

Tales from the ‘Titanic’

We hear so much about Kate and Leonardo in the movie Titanic that the real star of the show, Gloria Stuart is overlooked.  In case the name isn’t familiar, Gloria played Rose as an old woman. It is her story, her romantic liaison with a poor boy from a different social class to hers that we are listening to when we watch the film. Gloria was a classic actress of the silver screen. Titanic star Gloria Stuart was born 4 July 1910, 11pm in Santa Monica CA. She was of the right age and physical beauty to be involved in the […]

Allen Ginsberg, Trenoweth

Allen Ginsberg

“Howling” Allen Ginsberg was born on 3 June 1926 with outrageous Jupiter in Aquarius (like Walt Whitman) and Saturn in Scorpio. Theoretically, had they all been born in the same place, he could have shared a classroom with Marilyn Monroe and Miles Davis (all 3 were born within days of each other)! Jupiter in Aqaurius Jupiter in Aquarius pupils can be a little, um, different. As I wrote in “Growing Pains”: “To say Jupiter in Aquarius pupils march to the beat of a different drummer is a bit of an understatement. These pupils seem to have an internal beat that […]

Herschel, Uranus and Mary Shelley’s Vision of Horror

“Herschel, Uranus and Mary Shelley’s Vision of Horror” was  originally published in “The International Astrologer”, Aries 2009 issue for ISAR.  It was re-published in “Astrology Quarterly”, (Vol. 79, No 2) for The Astrological Lodge of London The article was updated in late 2016 with a corrected chart for the discovery of Uranus for an astrology lecture in Portugal and was re-formated on 14 May 2018, the day before Uranus ingressed into the sign or Taurus. “We are about to unfold the story of Frankenstein, a man of science who sought to create a man after his own image without reckoning upon […]

Alex Trenoweth, Walt Whitman

Walt Whitman: Song of Myself

Walt Whitman was born on 31 May 1819 at 1:45 am (Rodden Rating: A; Collector: Rodden) in Huntington New York with Jupiter in Aquarius and Saturn in Pisces. I have often said there is usually wonderful synastry between a fan and their idol. There is no disappointment here! This Walt Whitman lover shares her ascendent with Whitman’s Sun, the same Moon and Saturn degree and natal Venus in opposition to “The Good Gray Poet’s” Neptune!!   However, I will have to concede that Abraham Lincoln  (12 February 1809, 6:54 Hodgenville KY, Rodden rating: B; Collector: Rodden), the object of Walt […]

Educating Elliot Rodger

On 23 May 2014, the Isla Vista killings took place. The incident took place as the lunar phase was approaching the New Moon. My research on children and behaviour shows that poor behaviour is more likely to occur at this phase. Author’s note: One of the things I emphasise about using astrology in teaching is that it’s always important to check the balance of Jupiter and Saturn for the learners in question over the entire academic year. Elliot Rodger’s placement of Jupiter was unusual and for the sake of making a point, I want to demonstrate the possible impact this […]

Alex Trenoweth, astrology and families

Interview with Margaret and Armand

Margaret Gray and Armand Diaz interviewed Alex Trenoweth for their show “Relationships and Astrology“. They discuss the challenges of educating children and how astrology can help. Armand explains why “Growing Pains” is a model astrology book that anyone can access. The trio discuss the importance of the relationships between teachers and their pupils. Alex discloses why the odds are stacked against this possibility. However, she also reveals how astrology can be enormously beneficial. She also points out how Saturn, the planet normally associated with difficulties, becomes the guiding light for parents and teachers. As a professional schoolteacher as well as […]
