The astrology of Simone Biles

by Lynn Hayes.  Simone Biles, widely acclaimed as one of the world’s greatest gymnasts with 25 world titles, more than any other competitor (source: Wikipedia), recently made history by withdrawing from competition in the 2020 Olympics which were held in 2021 due to the Coronavirus pandemic.  Ms. Biles had an attack of the “twisties” – a sense of disorientation and resulting inability to perform complex maneuvers.  (Disclaimer: I know virtually nothing about gymnastics, nor did I follow the Olympics so this analysis is purely astrological and I make no claim to be able to judge her performance.)

Ms. Biles (3/14/1997, Columbus Ohio, time unknown) was born with the Sun in Pisces, imaginative and creative, but also extremely sensitive and intuitive.  She has three planets in that sign including Venus (relating) and Mercury (mind and mental function).  Pisces people tend not to want to rock the boat and prefer the easy path of peace.  Her Sun/Mercury conjunction suggests a brilliant mind, and her Moon is in Mercury ruled Gemini which craves change and is easily bored.  I imagined that Ms. Biles is quite good at visualizing the outcome, and a google search turned up this article which cites “Mental training and visualization” as her training secret. This fits perfectly into the Mercury/Gemini mental […]

The astrology chart and impact of Rush Limbaugh

Embed from Getty Images

Rush Limbaugh died yesterday at the age of 70.  Arguably one of the right wing’s strongest influences, he dominated the airwaves of conservative media for over 30 years.

Limbaugh’s chart reveals a cocktail of hidden rage and trauma.  With the Sun in Capricorn, he had a strong will to succeed and make his mark, but his Sun was in the 12th house of the hidden and the subconscious, and it was in a challenging square to Neptune, the modern planet which is associated with the 12th house.  It’s often said that 12th house Sun people prefer to be hidden, but many politicians and other people of fame have 12th house Suns.  However, these individuals tend not to crave the limelight but simply endure it for the sake of their work such as Tony Blair, George W Bush, and Jodie Foster.  Perhaps this is why Limbaugh chose the radio format rather than television.

Limbaugh’s Moon was in Pisces – another Neptune/12th house correspondence, but here we have the emotional sensitivity of the Moon in the most sensitive of all signs.  In Pisces the Moon tends to lack good boundaries and can easily become overwhelmed.  Under its traditional Jupiter rulership, Pisces seeks escapism and the safety of theology, and Jupiter in Limbaugh’s chart is also in Pisces which amplifies the effect of Pisces in the chart.  We would normally see these Pisces influences as demonstrating great empathy and depth of feeling, and we will never know if this was true for Rush Limbaugh – if it was, he kept it well hidden. Pisces can be easily deceived and can be somewhat of a shapeshifter and unreliable.  Limbaugh was well known to be a fabricator of tall tales […]

The astrology of Dr. Anthony Fauci

Embed from Getty Images

Dr. Anthony Fauci has become, for many, the most reliable face of the Coronavirus pandemic in the US – the trusted family doctor to whom we look for answers.  Dr. Fauci has a long career as an immunologist, having served on a national level since joining the National Institutes of Health in 1968.  But for many, his most remarkable achievement has been serving a president who has not always been able to sustain long-term relationships with his staff and associates.

Dr. Fauci (born December 24, 1940, time unknown) has the Sun in Capricorn, a signature of a personality dedicated to hard work and achievement.  His Sun is harmonized by a trine to both (expansion) which denotes great confidence, and Saturn (restriction) which encourages the hard work and discipline of the Capricorn Sun.  This in itself is a great cocktail for success.  Jupiter and Saturn are conjunct, however, so the expansive qualities of Jupiter and the self-criticism of Saturn are always in conflict, especially in a young individual.  This is especially true of Dr. Fauci because Jupiter and Saturn oppose his Scorpio Moon, leading to potential isolation and feelings of loss.  In addition, his Moon is squared by both Pluto (destruction and regeneration) and Chiron (wounding and healing), and these two planets of crisis and renewal also form a challenging square to Jupiter and Saturn.  And then Mars (drive and desire) is also strongly placed in its own sign of Scorpio, a position of power and influence, opposed by Uranus the rebel.  Fauci is not and could not be a “Yes Man” – he is wired to forge his own way and speak his own truth, something which likely led to his voluminous research (the Institute for Scientific Research states that he is […]

A tale of two brothers: Princes William and Harry deal with Megxit

Embed from Getty Images

As Britain deals with Brexit and the departure from the European Union, it is also struggling with the departure of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle from the royal family.  I am firmly in the camp of Team Meghan, and you can read my profile of her here, and an analysis of the Harry/Meghan relationship here.

With Jupiter sitting right on the Midheaven of his chart and his Sagittarius Ascendant conjunct the Galactic Center of transformation Prince William was born to the throne.  However, Neptune on his ascendant suggests that he is not easily known.  Strong Neptune contacts to the Sun or Ascendant often depict an individual who tends to carry the projections of others and what they believe him to be, and this is particular true of famous people and princes. With the Sun conjunct Moon in emotional Cancer he is extremely sensitive, with exceptional importance attached to family and tribe.

The exact conjunction in his chart from Venus (love) to Chiron (wounding and healing) suggests that relationships are painful for him, and it’s well known that Kate Middleton was not his first choice of a bride.  His heart was broken several times before he came to this decision, and the fact that the decision to marry came during his Saturn Return is, in my mind, problematic.  With Sagittarius rising bestowing a craving for adventure, he resisted settling down.  But his Sun/Moon conjunction (New Moon) in family-oriented Cancer sits in his seventh house of partnership, his Mars (drive and desire) is in the relationship sign of Libra, and he was destined for family life and partnership.  Cancer represents not only the family, but […]

Why Miley Cyrus can’t settle down: An astrological view

Embed from Getty Images

Miley Cyrus is an interesting character to me – born during the Uranus/Neptune conjunction of the early 1990s she is extremely talented and has been a star since the age of ten.  By the age of 18 she was #13 on the Forbes celebrity list.  But her very public scandals and relationship dramas make for an interesting astrological profile as you’ll see.  She came out as “pansexual” at the age of 14 (Saturn opposition) and has been identified as straight AND gay as well as gender fluid.

After a series of relationships, Miley began dating Liam Hemsworth in 2009.  Their on again/off again relationship led to a brief engagement, a breakup, marriage, followed by divorce this year.  To be honest, this is the kind of story that made me want to start this blog – my curiosity about why people are the way they are.

The early 1990s were a time of spiritual explosion and political confusion under the influence of a conjunction of Uranus (radical change) and Neptune (spirituality and illusion).  The Celestine Prophecy was published and New Age spirituality and delusion seeped into every aspect of the culture. Cults like the Branch Davidians, subject of a standoff with the FBI, emerged.  The Heavens Gate cult committed mass suicide on their way to join a UFO.  The first baby boomer president (Bill Clinton) and the first black president of South Africa (Nelson Mandela) were elected. JK Rowling started the Harry Potter books in 1992, and Ramtha, an entity channeled by JZ Knight, appeared on the scene and was championed by Shirley McLaine along with other celebrities, began a craze of channeled entities which included Seth, Abraham, Kryon and quite a few personages from the Pleiades.

In any event, Miley Cyrus is one of these incredibly creative beings […]
