Jody Watley

January 30 is Jody Watley’s birthday. Jody Watley has the sort of natal chart that makes me wince. There’s nothing wrong with it, but the amount of aspects created by having several planets sitting within a couple of degrees of the sign’s cusps makes it difficult to interpret. The job of a good astrologer is to decide which chart elements […]

Malcolm McLaren

January 22 is Malcolm McLaren’s birthday. In my last post, I discussed how Aquarius natives can be let down by sun-sign astrology because Aquarius is the weakest position of the sun — any astrologer knows that. Still, we have to look at the sun and figure out its importance in a chart, just like we have to prioritize every other […]

A Soupcon of Je Ne Sais Quois 0


The sun moved into Aquarius yesterday. I’ve posted a photo of the world’s most famous Aquarius native instead of the traditional depiction of the water-bearer. I suppose that cup of tea in Oprah’s hand provides a suitable alternative, anyway. Aquarius is probably the toughest sign to pin down for astrologers. There is an inherent dualism to the sign reflected in […]

Ethel Merman

January 16 is Ethel Merman’s birthday. I don’t believe that I’ve ever looked up Ethel Merman’s natal chart before. I get excited when I discover that I share certain chart elements with celebrities that I admire, so I was thrilled to see that Merman and I have the same sun, moon, Venus and Saturn (there is a very slight chance […]

January 15 is Skrillex’s birthday. I knew that there were a couple of famous Capricorn DJs around because I spend practically every vacation I have at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas where Calvin Harris and Tiesto are the resident DJs at the nightclub Hakkasan. I thought it was more than just a coincidence that the pair share a birthday. When […]

Georgia May Jagger

January 12 is Georgia May Jagger’s birthday. I don’t want to make it seem as if I’m picking favorites when I point out how many gorgeous Capricorn models there are . . . Oh, who am I kidding? Of course I’m picking favorites! That doesn’t take away from the fact that there seems to be a nearly inexhaustible supply of […]

Janelle Pierzina

January 10 is Janelle Pierzina’s birthday. Janelle Pierzina is my all-time favorite “Big Brother” contestant. I like my reality stars just like her: smart, competitive, hilarious and aware that they are a part of something bigger than themselves. I don’t want to root for someone who looks like they just wandered in off the street. I want to get behind […]

Elvis Presley

January 8 is Elvis Presley’s birthday. I should probably be discussing Elvis in “Viva Las Vegas,” but once again, I’m going to make this post all about me. It’s my blog and I can digress if I want to! As anyone who knows me already knows, I can’t get enough of Las Vegas. What really gets me going, however, is […]
