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 […]

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, 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 […]

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 […]

UAC Chicago Alex Trenoweth

Astrology Conference Review: UAC Chicago

UAC Chicago in 2018 was nothing short of amazing. How many astrologers can fit on a boat? (The answer is 750). And how many astrologers can you fit into a hotel? I think the final count on astrologers in a hotel was 1500. To be honest, I don’t mind too much. This was a highly successful conference for me (as well as many others) and it gets my “Jupiter Award” for bringing together so many people, for providing so many opportunities and for getting me to church on a Sunday morning with a hangover. Expensive? Yes but I (eventually) recovered […]

Solstice 2018, Rumi

Happy Solstice 2018

It’s the Winter Solstice 2018 for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere and Summer Solstice for those of you in the Southern Hemisphere. Wherever you are, the solstices are not only astronomically important but important markers in human life as well. Personally, I’ve always used the solstices to to reflect on what I’ve achieved and make new goals and targets. Everyone always says how quickly the year has passed. So much has happened this year that I look back on it in absolute awe. I’ll be posting the yearly horoscopes soon so be sure to pop back in. I’ve […]

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 […]
