• Star-Crossed Lovers: Johnny and Amber

    People are obsessed now with the heated defamation trial of Johnny Depp and Amber Heard. The trial began April 11, 2022 and is still happening as I write this article. I have had several people beg me to write about them, so here are all the juicy details. And yes, it’s juicy. First I want to review their history before I look at their charts. Both actors, Johnny and Amber started dating in 2012 and were married from 2015 – 2017. Amber filed for divorce in May 2016 and obtained a temporary restr…

  • The Slap Heard Around the World

    Will Smith slapping Chris Rock at the Oscars has caused a real stir and warrants looking into. For those who didn’t see it, this is what happened. On March 27, 2022, during the 94th Academy Awards, Will Smith slapped comedian Chris Rock, who was presenting the Oscar for the Best Documentary Feature. One of his jokes was about Will’s wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, who shaved her head due to her diagnosis of alopecia areata, which causes hair loss. Chris said, “Jada, I love you – I can’t wait for GI Ja…

  • Astrology During Taurus

    The Sun enters the sign of Taurus on April 19th at 7:39 p.m., Mountain Time. Taurus is an earth sign associated with the planet of love, Venus. The sign of Taurus is about art, beauty, comfort and luxury. Often occupations of this sign are architects, interior designers, ceramics, pottery and gardeners. They make things more beautiful. There are some exciting astrological alignments happening during Taurus. One is that it’s an Eclipse month. On April 30th will be a Partial Solar Eclipse and then…

  • Pluto Return of America

    Pluto is the topic of conversation now, so it’s time for me to write about him. Since Pluto is the slowest planet in our solar system, it’s a very big event when he joins a planet in our chart. Pluto has an orbit of 248 years and is triggering off the chart of the United States now. Let’s get to know Pluto a bit before we see what he’s doing now. Pluto is associated with Scorpio and has an intense style. The keyword phrase for Pluto is “Death and Rebirth.” Pluto transits occur during huge times …

  • Chinese New Year of the Water Tiger

    Welcome to the Chinese New Year! Last year for the Metal Ox, which changes to the Water Tiger for 2022. That’s a new animal as well as a new element. But before I explain the Water Tiger, let’s get to know a little about Chinese Astrology. The Chinese New Year starts on a different day each year and is decided using astrology. It begins at sunset on the second New Moon after the Winter Solstice, in China. Western and Chinese Astrology have similarities but also have differences. Western Astrolog…

  • Preview of 2022

    While I was just sitting on my patio collecting my thoughts for this article, I had an amazing experience. A beautiful and very bright red cardinal flew very close to me and landed on a tree right in front of me. While he sat there, we communicated. I’ve lived in the desert my entire life and have very rarely seen a cardinal. I took this as a sign of something new coming into the world. To me, he represented hope and positivity, that 2022 needs. We all need to be looking for good signs. Fortunat…

  • Saturn Square Uranus . . . It's Not Over Yet!

    Last year stodgy old Saturn did a triple square to the rebel, Uranus. The books say it’s over, but I don’t agree. Yes, the angles were exact last February 17th, June 14th and will occur again on December 24th to wrap up the year. But in October and November 2022 they will square each other again and in a dramatic way. Saturn has an orbit of 30 years and Uranus has an orbit of 84 years, so they don’t do this dance very often. Plus, Saturn could have just done one square and didn’t have to do a re…

  • North Node in Taurus: Back to the Land

    It’s time for the Nodes to change signs. On May 6, 2020, the North Node entered Gemini, which I named “Learning on Demand”. Looking back at that time, education will never be the same. It’s now called hybrid learning. Zoom is permanently part of school now. The North Node will leave Gemini and will enter Taurus on December 23, 2021. Let’s get to know what the Nodes are before jumping into this next phase. Just like the planets, the Moon’s Nodes travel around the Zodiac, only they travel in retro…

  • Astrology of the Pandemic

    What is the ONLY news in the paper? The never-ending Pandemic. I thought this would be a good time to look at the astrology relating to this phase in history. A good friend of mine told me, “If you couldn’t see this in astrology, I’d be scared. But since you can, I know it’s all meant to be.” Of course, she’s right, so let’s take a deep look at what the planets say. We have to start way back with the Capricorn Party. I should have named it the Capricorn Fiasco. Since about 2016, I’ve been studyi…

  • Astrology of Simone Biles

    I admit it, I was obsessed with watching the Olympics non-stop. Gymnastic, swimming, skateboarding, surfing . . . I loved it at. The best parts for me were the human interest stories and getting to know the competitors a little better. The most shocking of the stories was Simone Biles withdrawing from the gymnastics competition. This happened live and with the entire world watching. Simone did her first vault for the qualifying rounds and seemed to lose herself mid-air and almost landed on her k…
