Oprah, Empress of Everything

Empress Oprah of Everything

Oprah Winfrey’s yin-yang natal chart reveals a surprising inner-glimpse of the media queen’s artful ambiance.

On one hand, her Jupiter in Gemini keeps her talking talking talking while her Aquarian Sun, Mercury and Venus keep her heart and mind on humanity, on the betterment of ordinary lives.

On the other hand, beneath that light and airy altruism, a heavy dark Scorpio cloud schemes for power and control — masking emotions, manipulating others, all for the betterment of O.

May all the mice in her merry empire beware her shiny slice of — whack!

Hearts for MLK

MLK Wedding Hearts

With his mighty Mars in outspoken Gemini and his vocal Mercury in humanitarian Aquarius, it’s no wonder Martin Luther King changed the world with words alone.

Stepping off the airy public stage, his Capricorn Sun found earthy private pleasure with his wife Coretta’s Taurus Sun.

Both shared a Moon in Pisces, making them two sensitive souls — to each other and all the world around them.

At home, Martin’s Gemini Mars found flirtatious fun with Coretta’s Venus in Gemini.  And her Cancer Mars provided a warm emotional family for his delicate Venus in Pisces.

Their downfall, sadly, was a shared Saturn in playful Sagittarius  — leaving them to rely too much on luck, too much on a circle of too-trusted dreams.

 

Rocket Man Turns 35

Kim Jong-un, per his friend Dennis Rodman, was born today, January 8, in 1983.  If so, that makes Kim a Capricorn, a goat-like CEO in charge of his own one-party republic.

With three major planets in Aquarius – his Mercury, Venus and Mars – Kim must sincerely care about his caged, hermetic people.  His seemingly maniacal moves must be truly altruistic, all for the good of humanity.

But his Saturn shows up in Scorpio – same as his moon – making Kim an impassioned leader, an emotional (if not too touchy) decider.  He loves his friends deeply, same as he hates his orange-haired DC nemesis.

With his Jupiter, though, in Sagittarius, the goat goes centaur – having himself a blast at the transvestite basketball dance.

 

Mercury Goes Direct

Mercury Retrograde

Thrice yearly, the planet Mercury goes retrograde.

From Earth, looking at Mercury’s celestial path, the small planet, reaching the far edge of its orbit, appears to stall momentarily, then turn backward as it passes behind the Sun.  

Of course, it’s not really going backward… It’s an illusion… 

What is real, though, is Mercury’s retrograde effect on Earth.  That’s when, here on our small planet, snafus erupt.  Technology gets twitchy.  Travel gets stalled.  If something can go wrong, it will. 

Then again, retrogrades are perfect times for reflection on the past — three consecutive weeks to review our efforts and relationships. 

Fortunately, Mercury turns direct today and remains so for the next three months.  Time to start something new!
