There’s something of a cuffuffle going on in Uranus. No, not the planet, but the little town of Uranus, Missouri. A new weekly newspaper is shortly to be launched and residents are up in arms over its title. The Uranus Examiner. Spokesman for the town, Luge Hardman is quoted as saying, “No, I’m sorry, but the innuendo of that title puts my city up for public ridicule.”

Route 66 Uranus Missouri

Hardly a town and definitely not a city, Uranus, MO is a collection of businesses along Route 66, started in the year 2000 by the enterprising, Louie Keen. It began with a topless bar and now, eighteen years later, boasts such diverse businesses as The Axe Hole (for indoor axe-throwing) and escape rooms at Escape Uranus.

I suspect Mr Keen has Uranus rising or some other major alignment involving this quirky, unconventional planet – the Cosmic Joker, by another name – and given that the first issue of the Examiner is due out in late October, I feel fairly confident in predicting that it’s launch date will be the 24th of the month on the full moon conjunct - yes, you guessed it - planet Uranus!


Come to think of it The Uranus Star might have been a better idea.

17th Sep 2018 - 23rd Sep 2018

On Sunday the 23rd at 02:55 CET, the sun will enter Libra marking the autumn equinox. As you may know from the many times I have covered the equinoxes and solstices on Astrolutely, astrology has a Northern Hemisphere bias due to its development in ancient Sumer and Greece. So, as all of you in sunny Australia, South Africa and South America celebrate the arrival of spring, we in the North are in mists and mellow fruitfulness mode.But wherever we live the Sun now enters Libra and we celebrate all things Vensuian.

Love, partnership, fairness, balance and justice.Of course, what many people forget is that Libra is a Cardinal sign and all the Cardinals (Aries, Cancer and Capricorn) are movers and shakers. They just move and shake in different ways. So, Libra’s graces provide a distraction from its distinctly ambitious heart.

Think for a moment of Vladimir Putin and Benjamin Netanyahu and on behalf of the female of the species Margaret Thatcher and Selina Williams. Fighters and champions all.Babies born this week will have a Mars-Uranus square in their horoscopes, which will give even the sweetest most diplomatic Libran an unpredictable, volatile and iconoclastic streak. They’ll be a handful. A darling, beautiful handful.

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...
