Barry Manilow

The song “Read ‘Em and Weep” came out in 1983. (Barry Manilow did it way better than Meatloaf had done a few years before. That’s why Barry’s version made it to #18 in the Billboard Hot 100 and Meatloaf’s did not. Read that and weep, Meatloaf fans). As with anyone else, the astrology of Barry Manilow tells a fascinating tale. Barry’s “A” Rodden Rating birth chart indicates he was born on 17 June, 1943 at 9:00 in Brooklyn New York. With Jupiter in Cancer, he would naturally want to learn by extending himself emotionally. He could only take risks if he felt […]

Alex Trenoweth Gone With the Wind

Butterfly McQueen

Thelma “Butterfly” McQueen was born on 7 January 1911 in Tampa Florida (no birth time available). She is most famous for her role as squeaky voiced Prissy, (the house slave in Gone with the Wind who claimed to know everything about birthing babies but was reduced to a quivering wreck when Melanie went into a difficult labour). McQueen was born with Jupiter in Scorpio and Saturn in Aries. She had planned to be a nurse but was encouraged to give acting a try. Her stage nickname came from a dance performance in Midsummer Night’s Dream. During the filming of Gone […]

Alex Trenoweth, Diane Keaton

Diane Keaton

Diane Keaton was born 5 January 1946 at 2:49am in Los Angeles CA (RR: AA; Collector: Wilsons). The astrology chart of Diane Keaton shows she has Jupiter in Libra and Saturn in Cancer. Although there is little information available about her upbringing, this article outlines the important cycles of Jupiter and Saturn. Diane Keaton’s first professional stage debut was in 1968 in the musical Hair. During that year, Saturn was in the middle of three oppositions to her natal Jupiter in Libra. Natally, Keaton’s Saturn is in Cancer, a sign noted for its shyness. She achieved notoriety when she refused […]

Ben Stiller

Ben Stiller was born on 30 November 1965 at 17:35 (Rodden Rating: A; Collector: Rodden) in New York with Jupiter in Gemini and Saturn in Pisces. His versatility as an actor has led to his films raking in a massive $79 million a pop. To date he has written, starred in, directed and/or produced over 50 film projects. As he is the son of veteran comedians/actors Jerry Stiller and Anne Meara, it seems almost inevitable that Ben would become a Hollywood player. However, as we all know, parental success is no guarantee of the child’s success. By dissociate trine, Ben’s […]

Janis Joplin, "Trading Her Tomorrows"

“Trading Her Tomorrows”

This article appeared in the International Society for Astrological Research‘s (ISAR) magazine in 2017, just before what would have been Janis Joplin’s 75th birthday. ISAR is one of the largest astrological groups in the Western world. ISAR holds regular conferences every other year (except during United Astrology Conference years). Contact Alex at alex.trenoweth@gmail.com to book an astrological consultation. Copyright: Alex Trenoweth Summer of Love It’s hard enough to believe that the 50thanniversary of the Monterey Pop Festival during the summer of love in 1967 has just passed. It’s even harder to believe that Janis Joplin, the surprise hit of the […]

Childhood Education: A study by a teacher and astrologer

This article on astrology and education originally appeared in Dell Horoscope, the world’s leading astrology magazine. My new article “When a Flower Speaks” appears in the May/June 2018 issue. Dismissed for their lack of precision, non-replicable results and miniscule databases, modern day astrologers are often ridiculed by their skeptics. Can astrologers step up to the scientific plate or will they go down with the pseudoscience ship? In my role as a schoolteacher, the bias against being an astrologer was so great that I was actually threatened with dismissal should any parent complain about my interests in the subject. As I […]
