That Donald Trump should cancel his trip to London next month may not seem to be the biggest news of the week, but at a time when the Sun and Venus are conjunct Pluto and square Uranus, and Mercury is conjunct Saturn, such a decision marks an even sharper decline in relations between the President and Great Britain.

Donald Trump and Theresa May

And while we're on the subject of President Trump, the publication of Fire and Fury - a book the White House did its best to block – hit the bookshops, with the media making much of reports that White House staff questioned the president's mental health. In response Trump tweeted, "I think that would qualify as not smart, but genius... and a very stable genius at that." Pouring fuel on the fire, in a meeting on immigration a day later the president opined, "Why do we want all these people from shithole countries [ie El Salvador, Haiti and Africa] coming here?"

These earth-moving influences also presided over a mudslide in Santa Barbara county that wiped out countless homes and took many lives and closed one of California's main arteries – the 101.

On the plus side, a major breakthrough occurred in relations between North and South Korea with North Korea's agreeing to send athletes to the forthcoming Seoul Winter Olympics.

One man's Pluto-Uranus devastation is another's triumph.

The astrological mood changes as both the Sun and Venus move into the sign of Aquarius. Not only is a change of sign a portent of the new and the different but also Wednesday’s new moon. Aquarius is known as the Water Bearer, which is confusing since it is not a water sign but an air sign. And air is all about ideas and possibilities; the theory of things as opposed to their practical application.

What also adds to the confusion is that Aquarius is a Fixed sign, and therefore attached to its opinions and somewhat difficult to budge. Plus, it is ruled by both Saturn and Uranus: the former being the reactionary of the solar system and the latter the revolutionary. This may explain why Aquarians are some of the most fascinating yet quirky people in the zodiac.As the Sun and Venus wend their way through Aquarius we all have an opportunity to explore the properties of this sign, so if you find yourself reaching for the science channel or buddying up with people from all walks of life and exploring new worlds, you’ll know you’ve been bitten by the Aquarian bug.

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...
