Astrology and Celebrity: Bill O’Reilly’s Neptunian Moment

Bill O'Reilly (Astrology Explored) Bill O’Reilly came out swinging in his first interview since he was fired from the FOX news organization.

O’Reilly was fired from Fox News after an explosive New York Times report published in April revealed that he and the network had paid millions to settle sexual harassment lawsuits filed against him over the years — including two after former chairman Roger Ailes was ousted in the wake of his own sexual harassment scandal last summer. O’Reilly said on Friday that’s he’s had enough.

From now on when I’m attacked, I’m going to take action — mostly legal action,” O’Reilly said. “It’s not going to happen anymore to me.”

O’Reilly’s sexual harassment allegations led to a massive advertiser boycott, and resulted in Fox News canceling the top-rated “O’Reilly Factor.” The cable news king was dismissed from his 21-year perch at the network.

O’Reilly said he was “target number one” from “the organized left-wing cabal” charged with “destroying voices” it “does not like.”

We don’t have Bill O’Reilly’s full birth data. We lack the birth time, so any information about the moon is speculative. But when you have not one, not two, but many Neptunian indicators in a chart, then well, such statements are full of speculation, if you put it mildly.

(Astrology Explored) The New York Times reports:

As America Sleeps, Donald Trump Seethes on Twitter

The tweets started around 3:20 a.m. on Friday. Inside Trump Tower, a restless figure stirred in the predawn darkness, nursing his grievances and grabbing a device that often lands him in hot water.

On his Android phone, Donald J. Trump began to tap out bursts of digital fury: He mocked Alicia Machado, a former Miss Universe and a popular Latin American actress, as a “con,” the “worst” and “disgusting.”

In a final flourish, before the sun came up, the Republican presidential nominee claimed — without offering any evidence — that she had appeared in a “sex tape.”

The Astrology of Celebrities: You Will Be Missed Alan Rickman

Screen shot 2016-01-15 at 8.52.15 AM(Astrology Explored) The public at large can’t catch a break as another iconic and well loved actor, Alan Rickman, passed on at age 69. The reported cause of death was cancer.

I was going to write about his chart but another blogger Twilight did such a fantastic job I’m just put in a link here to the article she wrote several years back.

Below is his natal chart, progressions and transits for sunrise the day of his birth. Like just about all of the UK, we don’t have a birth time for Rickman since that country does not deem it important to record that information. Continue reading

Personality Astrology: William and Kate’s First Born Prince

(Astrology Explored via The Shoreline Times) The English, always a sporting people, bet heavily that the first child of Prince William and his bride would be a girl; placing odds at 4-7 while betting odds for a boy were 5-4. Maybe this was because the Queen lobbied for and got a change in the rules of succession, making the first born the heir the throne regardless of gender. This change fueled speculation that the royal family, despite their protests, knew the sex of the child. But all the bookmaking, speculation and rule changing can’t fly in the face of a good astrological prediction. Two years ago when William and Kate were married, I predicted their first child would be a boy. The Prince of Cambridge was born July 22, 2013 at 4:24 GMT, London, England as announced by Buckingham Palace. (read more–>)

The Astrology of Death: James Gandolfini passes in Italy

James Gandolfini

James Gandolfini

(Astrology Explored) Just as he was enjoying a trip to Italy with his teenage son, and days before he was to receive and award at the Taormina Film Festival in Sicily, beloved American actor James Gandolfini died suddenly and unexpectedly of a suspected heart attack on June 19, 2013 in Rome, Italy. He was a relatively young 51 years of age.

Astrologers don’t like to talk about death. For one thing, people who don’t know much about astrologers often assume that is the first thing we will predict about them. The second is that is it considered unethical to predict someone’s death. The last thing we want to do is alarm our clients. No doubt even this post will upset some.

Actually, predicting death is not as easy. We may not have a fixed point of death in our chart, but many checkout points were the soul can out to move on. In my own personal experience, when transiting Uranus opposed my natal Uranus I developed a tear in my aortic valve which luckily was diagnosed and treated before I keeled over dead. Other people, such as John Ritter were not so lucky. Deaths do seem to cluster around the major transits, the Uranian opposition around 42 to 44, either of the two Saturn Returns at age 29 or 58, the Chiron return in the early 50’s, and the Pluto square at around age 82 to 84.

The Astrology of the Passing of Ray Bradbury: Saving the Future

Bradbury Cartoon

(Astrology Explored) As the transiting moon joined with transiting Pluto, challenging his Arabic Part of Death at 15 degrees Libra, and as Venus made a rare transit across the face of the Sun, Ray Bradbury slipped away from the bounds of this Earth.

Bradbury “died peacefully, last night, in Los Angeles, after a lengthy illness,” HarperCollins said in a written statement.

“In a career spanning more than 70 years, Ray Bradbury has inspired generations of readers to dream, think and create,” the statement said. “A prolific author of hundreds of short stories and close to 50 books, as well as numerous poems, essays, operas, plays, teleplays and screenplays, Bradbury was one of the most celebrated writers of our time.”

The Los Angeles Times credited Bradbury with the ability “to write lyrically and evocatively of lands an imagination away, worlds he anchored in the here and now with a sense of visual clarity and small-town familiarity”

He described his method of composition as “word association,” often triggered by a favorite line of poetry.

Ray Bradbury was born August 22 1920 4:50 PM CST Waukegan, Illinois. We are fortunate to have a precise birth time, which gives a complete chart to analyze. Media reports that he died in the evening hours of June 5, 2012 but we do not have a precise time.

It is easy to see where Bradbury came by his love of words. His sun in Leo is reinforced by by three other planets in that zodiac sign highlighting a need to center stage. Sitting alongside his sun is creative and expansive Jupiter, the planet of dreams, Neptune, and the planet of thinking processes, Mercury. Communication was his passion, and trine his moon in philosophical zodiac sign of Sagittarius writing was his way of communicating his philosophy of life to the world.

I don’t try to describe the future,” Bradbury has often said. “I try to prevent it.”

As of this date no cause of death has been released. Looking at his chart we see natal Venus sitting with natal Saturn in the eighth house of death in stress aspect (inconjunct) the planet of illness, Chiron. Transiting Mars at the time of his death was running over Venus and Saturn. Venus relates to the kidneys with Saturn adding weakness to the kidneys. Venus and the zodiac sign of Virgo also can indicate a problem with diabetes which certainly is “a lengthy illness.” It seems to this astrologer that Mr. Bradbury may have passed from kidney failure as a complication of diabetes, though with transiting Uranus connecting Chiron, his passing was quick and maybe even unexpected at the time. With Venus and Saturn sitting in the eighth house, this information is kept secret from the public, so the family will not make an announcement of his cause of physical death.

Mr. Bradbury leaves with us an extensive legacy in his writings giving voice as his biographer, Sam Weller says, to the human soul, pointing out that it is up to us to save the future.

Astrology and Celebrity: Jonathan Frid–The Original Tortured Vampire

Jonathan Frid as Barnabas Collins (Astrology Explored) The show was campy, with overly dramatic writing and acting, the production values, because of the manner in which it was taped, poor. Actors regularly flubbed lines, props occasionally fell, recording booms sometimes appeared in the frame. Once, one actor’s period gown was accidentally set on fire by the lit candles on the set while she was trying to recite her lines. Yet for all its flaws, Dark Shadows became a hit with young baby boomers hitting their teen years, and the reason for this for a large part was the introduction of the original tortured vampire, Barnabas Collins as played by Jonathan Frid.

Sadly, Mr. Frid recently passed on April 13, 2012 weeks before the scheduled release of Tim Burton’s remake film “Dark Shadows” based on the iconic character Frid brought to life. Continue reading

Life Cycle Astrology: Prince Philip’s Health

Prince Phillip

Prince Phillip

Buckingham Palace announced that 90 year old Prince Philip had a “good night” after heart surgery where he given a stent to treat a blocked coronary artery.

In his later years, the consort of queen has amazed many with his stamina, attending 400 hundred engagements a year, giving 7 speaking engagements a month while engaging in competitive carriage racing. As the Prince turned 90 he scaled back his schedule, joking to Oldie magazine who gave him an Oldie Award:

“There is nothing like it for morale to be reminded that the years are passing — ever more quickly — and that bits are beginning to drop off the ancient frame. But it is nice to be remembered at all.”

Philip has been active in sports up through his 70’s though a wrist injury forced him to give up polo when he was 50. He has had minor brushes with health issues over the years, the latest one prior a lung infection in 2008. Still, overall, and especially for his age, he is a healthy man. Surprisingly then, even though stent surgery is usually very low risk, with most patients returned home within 24 hours, his astrology chart shows that Phillip isn’t out of the woods yet.

Celebrity Astrology: Kim Kardashian’s Happily Ever After

After just 72 days into her “fairytale wedding”, Kim Kardashian filed for divorce October 31, 2011 from basketball star Kris Humphries, citing irreconcilable differences. On December 1, 2011 Kris Humphries responded with a petition for annulment of the marriage based on fraud.

Sources very close to Kris Humphries tell TMZ … Kris is gunning for an annulment based on fraud because he feels “he was just slotted in the plot line of Kim Kardashian’s latest headline and newest business venture.”
