Donald Trump

World leaders have warned Donald Trump that his intent to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel has potentially turned the region into a "ring of fire". Already violent protests have broken out in Ramallah and Bethlehem, and many are talking about the possibility of a third intifada.

I cannot be sure that the chart below is correct, but I did take the time off a report by CNN as Trump was delivering his historic decision. I hope it is correct because the horoscope of that moment is fascinating.

22 degrees of Gemini rises with Mercury, the ruler of the chart, conjunct the Descendant, precisely conjunct Saturn. And, of course, Mercury is retrograde.

22 degrees of Gemini is Donald Trump's natal Sun, and with his Moon at 21 Sagittarius this opposition flanks the Ascendant-descendant axis of the announcement. And Donald was born on a lunar eclipse.

It should also be noted that the US’ Mars is 21 Gemini and Israel's Uranus: 24 Gemini.

These factors alone suggest this decision needs to be reconsidered. And with Mercury in retrograde, well it might.

So, this is it. The big one. On the 20th December, a little before 5:00 am (GMT) Saturn will enter Capricorn. It has taken twenty-nine long years to return to its own sign, and although there are themes which repeat each time Saturn transits Capricorn, there are always major differences, in large part due to this planet’s relationship with Jupiter, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto.In some ways, we get the best of Saturn when it is in its own sign, it acquires a certain majesty, but looking up the road to 2020 when Saturn will meet with Pluto, this time round it’s going to be a very tough ride indeed.It’s not always possible to do the right thing way in advance of a challenging transit, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t try.

And although we are all sick to death of austerity and long for the good old days of the great consumer spendfest, if we want to emerge with as few bruises as possible from this transit, now is the time to start saving for a very rainy day.Still, with Christmas upon us, let’s put on our party hats and however rich or poor we may be, make sure we give from the heart to the people we love.Have a jolly holly Christmas!.

Sagittarius: At last! Saturn leaves your sign, enabling you to get your mojo back. It may still take a while to return to your fully optimistic self, but you are on your way…


Cooking Under The Stars

An excerpt from Woman&Home magazine...

Penny Thornton learned how to cook at around the same time she was taking astrology classes. Back in the late 1970s, her then-husband was a sous-chef at London's Dorchester Hotel. Then in the mid-90s, Penny, who was living in the US, had a ten-minute daily slot on the Food Network, combining astrology and food.

As Penny explains, "The relationship between astrology and food is based on the ancient belief that all things in the universe are connected. Animals, birds, fish and plants were all 'ruled' by a planet or sign."

Penny's new book, The Zodiac Cooks, embraces her two passions. It’s an amusing and informative gastronomic romp through the zodiac alongside delicious recipes. So read on to find out whether you really are suited to spelt...
