The Lighthouse at Martha’s Vineyard

This is an extreme time. We see things in black and white, dark and light, good and bad, either/or. It’s all part of the Aries-Libra opposition with Pluto in Capricorn intensifying the polarity. The lighthouse is such a reassuring presence on the coastline.

Introducing the Davide Torchio Salon

I have to share with you 2 very special people who I met by chance in New York (but we all know there are no accidents!)

Davide and Fabrizio set up the most amazing hair salon, the Davide Torchio salon, at 954 Lexington Avenue and have created a fabulous, chic space and salon, which is such a magnet for the creative types that abound in NYC.

The minute I walked into their salon on New Year’s Eve I felt immediately at home and very soon they showed me their horoscope charts which naturally they keep to hand and we talked about the year to come.

Davide is the most remarkable and talented stylist (he’s so in demand across the US that he practically lives in the air – which is fine for an Aquarian), Fabrizio the best and most charming Libran front of house.

They are soul mates to me – we immediately fell into that easy shorthand way of connecting and they have become my New York family. For anyone in need of tlc for their tresses and souls they are fabulous.

Destiny of a Duchess

Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York has definitely felt the arrival of Saturn in Libra over the past few months.

Sarah Ferguson caught in a 'sting'


She’s turned 50, lost her U.S. source of income, built up massive debt and caused a diplomatic incident over her Turkish TV documentary. Now she is the subject of a hugely embarrassing exposé for pocketing thousands of dollars in exchange for access to Prince Andrew.

Saturn is due back to Libra on July 21 when the karmic consequences will be made clear. The incident is brought to light on the Venus-Pluto opposition (falling directly on Fergie’s own Saturn in early Capricorn). This aspect is the chief undercover operator and dealer of dirty deeds.

When the Queen’s favourite daughter in law, Sophie Wessex was ‘stung’ by a British newspaper for the fake sheik debacle she was subsequently sheltered by the royal family. Fergie unfortunately is going to be hung out to dry – the royals’ modern equivalent of being hung, drawn and quartered.

Planetary and political tussles

With all the planetary tussles going on – Saturn opposing Jupiter and Uranus with Venus in between and then the Sun getting mixed up with Neptune its not much wonder we’ve got a coalition government in the UK.

As the impact of this dawns on everyone perhaps its as well to remember that oppositions themselves create TENSION. So with Cameron the Libran – known for diplomacy – fronting the thing coupled with a bit of Capricornian Clegg ambition thrown in this could be a good way to take things forward.

In our own lives just now – its bound to be a time of feeling pushed and pulled around. We need to look for our own coalitions…

My good friend Shelley Ackerman

One person and special friend, the brilliant astrologer Shelley Ackerman has just guided me into my new nest in New York City. 

I’ve known Shelley now for nigh on 12 years – it must be our Jupiter return!  She’s a Libra, she has the voice of an angel and you can hear her on her blogpost radio show discussing all matters metaphysical and astrological.

Shelley has a particular genius for connecting the cosmos to the unfolding political and economic stories of our day.
