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.

If we were living in Ancient Rome we’d be celebrating the Saturnalia this coming Sunday. – a week-long festival in honour of Saturn – the god, not the planet. In those times there would be public sacrifice, public banquets, gift-giving, role-reversals, and partying – lots of partying. This sounds remarkably like Christmas today, with the exception of sacrifice, although you could say the turkey fulfils that role.

The Saturnalia also appears to have nothing whatsoever to do with the planet Saturn, which is quite the party-pooper of the solar system.Under Saturn, we obey rules, live within our means and never step out of line.

Party-time? Anything but.Just before Christmas this year, Saturn will enter its own sign of Capricorn, and although a ticker-tape reception is not on the agenda, a little meditation on the virtues of austerity and obedience might not go amiss. Happy days!.

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...
