Trump versus Clinton – You’re Fired?

Right now about half the voters in America want Donald Trump to win the November 2016 US presidential election, and half want Hillary Clinton to win. Generally, women, college educated, and minorities are rooting for Clinton, and white males support Trump. It is the last chance for the latter, because demographic dynamics in the US show minorities growing and working-class white males decreasing in number, so it is a gamble for Trump, and Trump loves his gambles Read More

REGREXIT

Sometimes it is good to get things wrong – and on June 23rd 2016 everyone got it wrong. Even the bewildered Brexiters – those who voted for the United Kingdom to leave the European Union – woke up dazed and confused the morning after. Theirs was a protest vote. Everyone who “counted”, that is the media, the politicians, the business elite, the experts who knew what was best for Britain, could not comprehend what had happened. But the truth was simple: if you had money, you voted in, if you didn’t you voted out. Read More

BREXIT

(This article was written in March and printed in The Mountain Astrologer in May 2016. Now I am making it available here.)

David Cameron is clearly a nice guy. Wouldn’t you be, if you had Libra rising with Venus in Libra, just like lovable Bill Clinton? He is also a person born in the lap of privilege and luxury, educated in Eton and subsequently Oxford, which is well reflected by his Moon in Leo on the 11th house cusp conjoining Jupiter. He has launched Britain on two potentially disastrous referendums – the Scottish vote on independence in 2014 and the imminent vote on June 23rd 2016 to decide whether the UK will remain in the European Union. Perhaps, when you are a strong Libran type, you just like asking people to decide things for you. Read More

The 45th President of the United States

(This article was written in April 2015 and was printed in the excellent astrology magazine “The Mountian Astrologer” in June of that year. I subsequently forgot to put it up on my site, but with the November 2016 election imminent, it is worth reading – Adrian)

First there was Bush senior, then Clinton (Bill), then Bush junior and currently the Obama interlude. Could it soon be Clinton (Hillary) in an amazing sequence of political musical chairs, or could the Bush dynasty sweep up the winnings with a third member of their family, Jeb Bush? The race for the November 2016 US election is now definitively on, with the announcement by Hillary Clinton that she was running for president. (Note 1) Read More

Astrology and Statistics

Astrology is tricky. Just when you think you have a solid and reliable interpretation, things change. Interpretation in astrology is like trying to hit a moving target, and that moving target is Time itself. Perhaps this is why trying to come up with scientific or statistical results, which prove astrology, is such a challenge. Read More

PREDICTIONS FOR A NEW AGE

A few centuries ago, the only way people travelled through the air, was when they foolishly fell off mountains or high buildings. Imagine the astonishment and awe then, when the Montgolfier brothers staged the first manned balloon flight in front of Louis XV1 of France in Versailles on September 19th 1783. “Manned” may not be the correct word; there was a duck (could handle flight) and rooster (maybe could not) and a sheep (probably would die), who all returned safely to Earth after an 8 minute flight reaching 1500 feet. This happened two years after the discovery of the first outer planet, Uranus, which is associated with innovation, explosion and revolution. In this way a new, third dimension was added to human experience. Here in 2016 there are about three quarters of a million people in the air at any given time, flying fast and at high altitudes, and this change has happened in the space of just over 200 years. Has anything as dramatic as that happened in any other 200-year period in history? Read More
