Uneasy Lies the Head that Wears a Crown


Elvis A(a)ron Presley (January 8, 1935 – August 16, 1977)

Again, I never thought of doing Elvis’ astrological chart analysis until I saw Nick Merico on American Idol this week. Now, I wonder why I didn’t think to do it before.

As Elvis needs no introduction, I will start with his birth chart.



All the astrology sites with Elvis’ chart state that his time of birth is accurate. I can’t argue with that, since my own Kepler 7.0 program agrees. But it implies that by the time Elvis was 9 years of age, he was ready to take on the mantel of “The King”. And yet, when the Pluto ‘event’ is highlighted after age 42, it makes me wonder if the birth time is a little off.

At any rate, Elvis has a double Yod (Finger of God), which has the Saturn/Midheaven inconjunction in common. So let’s see what that means.

Saturn Inconjunct Pluto

Even under favorable circumstances, this aspect usually means that you are resistant to change, that you hold on to any situation, no matter how bad, until it is totally intolerable. Then when change does take place, it has to create a revolution and a total breakdown of everything that came before it. You must learn to adapt to circumstances a it mre gracefully and not be afraid of occasional compromise.

You may find it difficult to get along with others, because you are unnecessarily afraid of what they want from you. Learn to associate only with people whom you can trust.

Saturn Inconjunct Midheaven (x2)

This aspect indicates that you very much need a positive relationship withg your parents, especially your father. You should not be disciplined sternly unless you are given lots of love at the same time. Otherwise, giving and receiving love from others will be a real problem for the rest of your life. Unless you are truly supported by your family and friends, you will begin to feel lonely and isolated from others and inferior to them. Also you are likely to have very serious difficulties with authority figures, because you are afraid of how they will treat you, not expecting that anyone will ever give you the loving guidance you need. You will see all authorities only as potential threats to your freedom and as sources of pain and trouble.

Uranus Inconjunct Midheaven

You need to express your thoughts and feelings, but you often upset the people around you with your words. You seem to enjoy creating a stir every time you say something, but this can get you into quite a lot of trouble with parents, teachers and other authority figures. The underlying principle of this aspect is the need to balance your individual self-expression and manner of communicating with your need to learn and grow under the guidance of older people.

London Earth Stars?


London’s Ley Lines: Pathways of enlightenment

I bought this book to give to myself for my 70th birthday. The image on the cover was the draw. I’ve been tracking pentagrams (five-pointed stars) since my work on The Star of Bethlehem¬†in 1996. In my view, they are signs of Christ’s presence here on earth.


What Chris Street has produced here is a London guide book for dowsers. This is a totally different way to ‘see’ the capital city. If your focus is on the more etheric, ephemeral side of life, this book will be right up your alley.

Usually, about now, I start to quote extensively from the book I’m reviewing. I’m not going to, here. Instead, I want to add a different point of view/different ley line image for you to consider. This book was produced in 2010. The 2012 Summer Olympics took place in London two years later. The logo of an abstract cyclist was iconic. What if I told you that the ley lines may have been the basis of that symbol?


Now, what do you think about that?!

It’s a Merico Idol


Nick Merico (age 24)

Last night was the first episode of season 18 of American Idol. Nick Merico, who dropped out of last year’s contest due to a family crisis, auditioned again.

My first thought, which I’d had when Adam Lambert was on the show, years ago, was ‘here’s another Elvis Presley’. So I decided to look at Nick’s birth chart.


The timing is random, even the place is estimated, since he is Argentinian born, but raised in the States. And yet, the birth chart shows the promise of a great talent, if he can overcome his ego. Leo Rising might account for that superiority impression. And yet, when challenged by Lionel Richie, he didn’t crumble, he didn’t erupt in a rage, he humbly took the criticism and promised to work hard if put through to Hollywood again.

If the chart is accurate, the Sun/Ascendant inconjunction may help to explain this.

Sun Inconjunct Ascendant

Your relationships with other people can be very intense. While you ae young, they may be quite difficult, because you feel that others will accept you only if you deny yourself in some way. Or you may constantly feel you should put off doing what you want in order to do what you have to do. Usually your ideas about what you have to do come from the people around you. Also, contacts with other people will frequently force you to make serious, major psychological changes. Difficulties in your relationships with friends and family are signs of profound internal changes.

You may find that no matter how hard you try to show others who you really are, they misunderstand you somehow. This is because the angular relationship between your rising sign and Sun sign indicates that your internal energies are quite different from the energies that you show to the world. You are not intentionally dishonest with the world, you simply present a confusing complex of energies. As you get older, you will learn more about your effect on people, which will enable you to put the two sides of your personality together so that they work smoothly. Be patient and do not hurry. Look at each relationship as an opportunity to learn more about yourself through your effects upon others. You will know you have learned this when you no longer attract people who are psychologically difficult to deal with.

Answering to a Higher Authority?


Where are the Children? (NBC)

This real life mystery has been captivating the viewing public for four months now. Here is a link to NBC’s news about it.

This next video raises a few eyebrows (and questions): did they store the kids’ bodies here? If so, why did they move them again? If not, why do those parcels look so heavy?



Seeing the Lord’s Hand?

The overriding factor is the belief systems in play for the couple, who are waiting for Christ’s return in July 2020. Why 2020? The clue may be in the fact that it will be the 200th anniversary of Brigham Young’s revelation moment. So, what does that ‘event’ look like astrologically?


The timing is randomized. But the result is still significant. The Ascendant in Scorpio is opposite Uranus, the ‘quickener’. Jupiter, Pluto and Saturn are still conjunct in Capricorn, but now they are opposite the Sun which is in the first degree of Cancer. The Moon in Leo is inconjunct to Saturn, so I will concentrate on that aspect.

Moon Inconjunct Saturn

This aspect usually means that your need for emotional security conflicts with your need to live with the world’s demands. Each of us needs to be accepted and loved for what we are, in order to have enough self-confidence to deal with the world. But we also have to learn to live with our own life situations in order to survive. In other words, we have to realize that we can’t have everything we want. With this aspect, these two needs are working against each other. Probably you will satisfy one of them at the expense of the other.


It is one of the enduring mysteries that people will do strange things if they think they’re going to go to Heaven shortly. The Jonestown Massacre is a case in point. There have been others, over the years, so this is not a new phenomenon. And it’s not a lot different than what happened at Masada or Monts√©gur.

When people want to exit the strange world we live in, they hope (and pray) for deliverance. And those that get in their way, or don’t believe as strongly about it, end up being ‘sacrificed’. After all, they will be ‘safer’ there (on the other side of life). One hundred and forty-four thousand people will be waiting for the day (whenever that should be) to meet their Saviour. But they cannot force God’s hand, no matter how devout they think they are.

Starling: Contemplating Its Universe

Fountain: Can Lightning Strike Twice?


The Old Steyne, Brighton postcard

In just about five weeks time, Fountain International will be re-enacting the Brighton Experiment from 1981 that became the Birth of Fountain. So, will it be as successful?

The Chart


On its own, the new experiment has a similar energy as the original, but the timing does raise a major difference. This one is in the spring, rather than the autumn, and in the afternoon, rather than the evening. These things matter to humans, but have no effect on the Universe. However, the powerful conjunction of Jupiter, Mars, Pluto and Saturn in Capricorn is fully contained within the 5th House, the home of playful love. Last time, most of the planets were fully contained in the 6th House, the home of service.

So, it is useful to remember that as time moves on, the focus changes, always.



But it is only when you combine the two charts together do you get a picture of what this re-enactment is really all about.


As you can see, there are several Fingers of God (Yods) pointing at important planets and positions. That makes this event spiritually significant.

But what does it mean for us humans?

If you are old enough to have lived through the early 1980’s, you will perhaps have a rosy retro-vision of those times. But just a review of historical events of September 1981 will be a bit of a shock. During that month alone, the USA and the USSR were both testing nuclear bombs! Oh, and the Smurfs debuted on television. Two extremes.

After the SALT talks, nuclear testing stopped, but in recent months ballistic missiles are becoming operational again. The Americans and the Russians are becoming more militant. China has recently been sidelined by COVIC-19, so the whole world is holding its collective breath, in order not to be affected. And other things have been evident.

So, this re-enactment is more global than the original experiment.

“What the world needs now is love, sweet love…”
