The #Zodiac: The #WSJ Prints #FakeNews

The zodiac

Just when you think that us astrologers have knocked back the ridiculous assertions of Professor Park Kunkle that the zodiac changed and you aren’t your zodiac sign anymore, we get, from the Wall Street Journal’s Jo Craven Mc Ginty the same song and dance nine years later, but this time from a newspaper that supposed to be about truth and fact-checking.

So this astrologer got my rant on and wrote Ms. Mc Ginty the following letter:

Dear Ms. Mc Ginty,

The article you wrote about sun signs changing is wildly inaccurate.

Robert Mueller

As of today only a handfull of people know what Robert Mueller found in his investigation of the Russia’s involvement with Donald Trump’s campaign for president. As people wait for William Barr to release a redacted version of the report can astrology give a heads up as to what Robert Mueller found?

Paris and the world suffered an inexplicable loss with the destruction of much of the 850-year-old Notre Dame Cathedral. Starting at around 6:50 PM, Paris time, initial reports stated that the fire started on the roof. Four hundred firefighters battled the blaze for nine hours before they extinguished it.

The great Medieval churches weren’t just the sign of the Roman Catholic Church’s wealth, power and might. They had a divine mission.

#AmericanGods: Hallajeuh! And who screws ‘ya?

(Astrology Explored)


Something shifted here in America. It’s been long and slow. I suppose I should have gotten the hint the day 25 years ago when here in my hometown a teenage boy was shot in the back of the head for resisting arrest while face down. Three officers at the scene could not contain one seventeen-year-old and he ended up dead. As the mother of three now adult men who were boys and teens at the time and a woman who supervised literally hundreds of youth newspaper carriers from all parts of this town “nice” and “rough,” the incident was thoroughly unconscionable. Yet, the police involved were cleared by an internal investigation and the mother’s lawsuit seems to have been dropped. Two years after the incident the Middletown Police Chief complained that the lawsuit wasn’t “fair to the officers or the department.”

The kid had a gun. And it was wedged under his body as the police subdued and in the middle of handcuffing him when a police officer shot him.

#Astrology & The #Skeptics: #TheOrville Misfires.

(Astrology Explored) Seth MacFarlane misfires across the bow of astrology in January 24, 2019 episode “All the World’s a Birthday Cake.” Ed Mercer and crew make first contact with a pre-spaceflight society who SETI like, zapped an invitation for any and all to visit. What should have been a party moment turned deadly serious when at a state dinner First Officer Kelly Grayson mentioned that next week was her birthday. You would have thought someone dropped one hundred cobras on the dinner table for the natives’ reaction. Kelly and Bortus (who share the same birthday) are summarily arrested and put in a detention camp, while feckless Ed tries to figure out what caused the native’s reaction.

Come to find out that Kelly and Bortus were born under the “Sign of the Geliac,” an astrological sign that is supposed to be dangerously violent. The society goes so far as to perform medically unnecessary c-section on mothers dangerously close to giving birth to a Geliac child, even if the procedure is dangerous to both mother and child.

In honor of #Sagittarius season: 4 planets in the 9th house?

Note: I wrote this answer on Quora and then said, hey, let’s put this on the blog too.

Astrologer's MailboxWhat does it mean if I have 4 planets in the 9th house: Sun, Mercury, Venus and Mars?

I cannot give you a complete answer because I do not have your chart (and please don’t put it up or give me birth info, because I don’t read individual charts on Quora.)

The ninth house rules publishing, teaching, law, and travel. The zodiac sign that rules the 9th house is Sagittarius. Even if your sun is not in Sagittarius, you’ll share many of the attitudes and traits of a Sagittarian individual. You may be gregarious and the life of the party. You may impress many people for no damn reason at all, and know too much for your own good. Endlessly optimistic, you’ve lost more than one lover because of your fearless cheeriness in the morning. Don’t worry. There is always another.

Publishing, teaching, law and/or travel play a prominent role in your life. You may find you end up in more legal troubles than the average person, again for no damn reason other than the Universe seems to have it out for you, or it just wants to test your ability to act as your own lawyer. Remember what they say about who is a fool in this instance.

You’ll be a teacher one way or another. Either you are a teacher, teach some sort of class somewhere or coach kids. You love kids, someone else’s that is. But if and or when you have them you’ll spoil them rotten, much to the consternation of the other parent.

Secretly you dream about being a great writer. However, writing is hard work, so unless you have some grounding elements in your chart, you’d rather have someone else write it. You are the person who walks up to a writer at a party and says, “I have a great idea for a book. Why don’t you write it and we’ll split the profits?” This is why writers drink so often and have lawyers on speed dial.

You love the idea of travel but you may be a poor traveler. However, that doesn’t stop you from dreaming of exotic climes. You love all kinds of maps, even that funky one drawn by J.R.R. Tolkien’s son, Christopher, from Lord of the Rings. You even know that’s who drew the map. Secretly you want to be an elf.

When the Temptations sang “Papa is a rolling stone,” they were talking about you. Hey, at least you’ll gather no moss.

Disclosure: I have two planets in the 9th house, which gives me license to poke fun at people with a prominent ninth house. 🙂

#Astrology Pro Tip: There Is No Thirteenth Zodiac Sign

Sidney_Hall_-_Urania's_Mirror_-_Taurus_Poniatowski,_Serpentarius,_Scutum_Sobiesky,_and_Serpens(Astrology Explored) Oh, god. What do we have to do to get it through peoples heads? I opened my Quora feed this morning to find this:

Now that NASA has re-arranged the zodiac signs, should I go by the ancient Babylonian way or the NASA way? I’m either Gemini or Taurus.

Of course, I answered. And here it is.

NASA has not rearranged the zodiac signs.

They tell you so themselves.

No, what NASA was attempting to do, through a children’s page, (updated January 2016) was to discredit astrology by saying that once upon the time, the Babylonians knew there were thirteen constellations in the zodiac but since it didn’t fit in with their astrology ignored it proving astrology is not a science, is nonsense and should be thoroughly ignored by anyone with a lick a sense.

Which only shows you that NASA should stick to what they know because the Babylonians, whose civilization started about 18th century BCE, (according to astrology antagonistic Wikipedia,) identified 17 to 18 constellations in their zodiac. Continue reading

#PsychicReadings at Hartford CT Women’s Expo

Screen Shot 2017-10-13 at 10.27.15 AM The Connecticut Women’s Expo usually likes to include psychics at their Expos, and as usual, my friend Janet Booth, is an expert at gathering some of the best psychics in CT for October 21 and 22nds’ Hartford Expo. I personally know many of these women, and they are phenomenal intuitives, tarot card and other types of readers. You may even see an astrologer or two there.

If you haven’t had a reading in a while, or not at all, this is a marvelous opportunity to experience a short reading for a dollar minute. Because of the volume Janet anticipates, (these psychics are busy! during the expo), they give only ten and fifteen-minute readings. But at a dollar a minute, this is a marvelous way to tip your toes in psychic waters. Continue reading

Full Moon #Eclipse: Boogie Woogie Or Don’t Dance At All

Lunar Eclipse(Astrology Explored) Monday’s partial lunar eclipse (August 7, 2017 at 2:10 PM EDT) is the bookend of the February 10, 2017 Full Moon Eclipse. The Sun/Moon position is reversed. The February moon in Leo talked about our public images. This full moon, with the moon in the sign of the individual, Aquarius. The question will be: how will you fulfill your inner longing for personal fulfillment?

Do you boogie woogie to your own drummer? Or are you deaf to the callings of your soul? Are you authentic? Are you real? Are you expressing your true self? If you aren’t the Universe won’t want to dance with you.

Aquarius, as a zodiac sign, talks about finding your unique and honest self and gifting that to the world. Where house the eclipse falls will call you to develop your talents in that area and gift it to the world.

In a real way, this process started back in February where you examined your public image in relation to others. Now you will reconcile your inner self to your public image.
Up to the point that Aquarius’ modern ruler, Uranus, was discovered in 1781, people did not have access to a planet to help excavate their individuality. Self-actualization wasn’t a mass concept as most people struggled to survive whatever way they could. People lived within the strict dictates of government and church. But within a shy five years of the Uranus’ discovery people were talking about the rights of the people to “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.” These were radical thoughts for a revolutionary time.
