Mel Gibson

Gibson was born on 3 January 1956 at 16:45 in Peekskill NY (Rodden Rating: B; Collector: Rodden) with hard working Jupiter in Virgo and Saturn in Scorpio. He first came to our attention in 1981 in Gallipoli, a movie which secured his reputation as a serious actor as Jupiter was conjunct his natal Neptune. In the run up to transit Jupiter opposite natal Neptune, he had begun starring in the Lethal Weapon series. Following a series of semis squares between the same planets, he directed, produced and starred in Braveheart in 1995. Just after Saturn’s conjunction to natal Jupiter, he again directed, produced and starred […]

Joe Cocker

Cocker (shown left, photo and sources from Wikipedia) was born on 20 May 1944 at 5:00am in Sheffield (Rodding rating: A; Collector: Blackwell) with Jupiter in Leo and Saturn in Gemini. Jupiter in Leo, is ruled by the Sun in Taurus conjunct the dreaded fixed star Algol. It was his unique voice we will remember him for and whilst information about his formative years seem to be lacking it is known he began singing at around the time of his first, single shot Jupiter return in his 12th year. In 1960, after his single shot Saturn opposition and after Jupiter […]

Ian McEwan

Ian McEwan is one of my favourite authors. On top of being so damn good at what he does, I love it that he has kept old notebooks so he can remember how stories evolve and change with life’s natural progression. As today is his birthday, I thought I’d give him the “Growing Pains” treatment. Ian was born on 21 June 1948 at 8:30 am in Aldershot, United Kingdom (Rodden Rating: A; Collector: Rodden). By star sign, his Sun didn’t quite get under the solstice wire to be in Cancer. At 29 degrees 48 minutes, his Sun is in Gemini. […]

Elvis Presley

Elvis Presley was born on 8 January 1935 at 4:35am in Tupelo Mississippi (Rodden Rating: AA ; Collector: Rodden) with Jupiter in Scorpio and Saturn in Aquarius. His first public performance was on 3 October 1945 as Jupiter was in square aspect to his Sun, just after transiting Saturn has opposed it. A few months later, he received his first guitar. Growing up in a largely African-American neighbourhood, “The King” would have been very influenced by what was around him and along with a love of music, is very much in line for someone with the Moon in Pisces. Just […]

Anders Breivik

Anders Breivik will no doubt be remembered as a monster. When someone blows up a city centre with a homemade fertiliser bomb and then dresses up as a policeman, grabs a machine gun and murders 70+ kids on a picturesque island, one doesn’t need validation of that person’s insanity. What I do like doing though is showing how the astrology is working. Perhaps even more importantly, I want to show how astrology can curtail the potential for people like Breivik to wreak havoc. Breivik’s Birth Details Anders Breivik was born on 13 February 1979 in London according to Wikipedia. Because […]

George W. Bush

George W Bush’s administration was dominated by accusations of vote-fixing and nepotism during the election of 1990 and later of war-mongering in the wake of the terrorist attacks of September 2001. Nevertheless, he was re-elected for a second term. Reports indicate his popularity rapidly declined during his second term with threats of impeachment over alleged violations of the Genevaconventions and his administration’s justifications of the war in Iraq. His presidency ended with several magazines naming him as being the worst president ever.[1],[2],[3],[4],[5] Although transits alone could explain Bush’s spectacular downfall, the deeper issues found with the comparison of his birth […]

The Sibley Chart

One of the main problems of the history of the USA is that it is difficult to pinpoint exactly when it became nation. Could it be when Columbus landed, when the first settlement was established, when the colonies decided to unite as a single country or is it really when the main political leaders decided to revolt against British rule? The Sibley chart was erected at the time when the US constitution was supposedly signed. However, the legal separation between America and Britain took place on 2nd July 1776 with Congress adopting it on 4th July 1776. Many of the […]

The Day the Music Died

A long, long time ago…  I can still remember How that music used to make me smile  And I knew if I had my  chance  That I could make those people dance  And, maybe, they’d be happy for a while. . . But February made me shiver  With every paper I’d deliver. Bad news on the doorstep; I couldn’t take one more step. I can’t remember if I cried When I read about his widowed bride, But something touched me deep inside The day the music died. —Don McLean, “American Pie” On the morning of 3 February 1959, America woke […]

Amy Winehouse: Falling into the Abyss

As with the the other Club of 27 members, it is hard to watch the past performances of Amy Winehouse. It is just too tragic such a vibrant star burnt herself out before she turned 30 years of age. This article explores her life on stage. Readers may wish to examine the chart of Janis Joplin who is also a member of the Club of 27. Amy Winehouse was born to a Jewish family in Southgate London on 14 September 1983 at 10:25 pm (Source: Frank Clifford quotes Winehouse’s mother to a mutual friend of astrologer Margaret Zelinski. RR: A). […]
