JULY 2018


StarScoop: The 14th Dalai Lama was born July 6, 1935, under the nurturing sign Cancer. His natal chart also boasts strong Taurus, Gemini, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio and Pisces influences. Perhaps his presence and spiritual influence on the planet are due to the luminaries and planets in his natal chart being so well positioned to one another.

In an area of his chart that represents communication, teaching and spirituality, he has a humble and majestic physical persona that inadvertently commands attention. This is due to his natal Venus Mercury connection allowing him to speak with eloquence, grace and dignity to those from all walks of life.

The Dalai Lama has Saturn sitting in Pisces at the top of his chart opposite his natal Moon and Neptune, and very well positioned to his natal Sun, Jupiter and Uranus. This in itself makes this spiritual guide a prominent figure on the planet. His insight and vision coupled with realism is finely tuned and should not be dismissed in vain for selfish gain.

I believe the Dalai Lama can make a difference when it comes to the overall consciousness of the planet. Through his teachings and wisdom, he may be the one person who can help defer the divisive tailspin that faces the human race. Now all we have to do is get the majority to join in, listen and live life in such a way that we consciously benefit our planet and all living creatures.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Ask tough questions and make choices that are thought out and offer peace and compromise. What you gain will be based on what you do and the example you set.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Discussing your plans will lead to interference from someone who likes to meddle in your affairs. Opt to do your own thing, and allow others the same privilege.

JUNE 2018


StarScoop: Gemini-born Paul Giamatti captured my attention when season one of “Billions” was released. Although Paul has been around a long time, it’s his performance in this series that really made me want to take a look at his chart to see the characteristics of the man playing the role of Chuck Rhoades, a U.S. attorney fighting financial corruption. I have to admit I wasn’t surprised or disappointed by what I found.

Giamatti’s chart is creative, and although he boasts to be just another guy, describing other actors he’s worked with as being intense, I’d have to say Paul has a dimension of greatness both on and off the screen. He’s a passionate and strong-willed man who can quickly jump from one anecdote to another, keeping whoever he is with entertained on or off camera.

He also has a certain shyness that I believe he hides well, but in truth, like most actors, he craves the attention that goes along with stardom. He is sorrowfully underrated, and that partially has to do with his generosity as an actor, but behind that facade is a man who wants everyone to know who he is.

If you haven’t caught “Billions,” it airs on Showtime and is definitely a must-see for its brilliant writing, phenomenal casting and fast-paced multidimensional storylines. If you haven’t been fortunate enough to watch Paul Giamatti’s work in the past, this series will prompt you to check out his past projects.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Your emphasis should be on health, exercise and personal growth. Make smart changes that will help to simplify your life. Put an end to situations that are frustrating and limiting.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): A change of attitude will encourage you to rethink your goals. Hone your skills, and look for unique outlets to apply your knowledge and services.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Travel, educational pursuits and reestablishing ties with people you haven’t seen in a while are all favored. Don’t be too quick to share your personal secrets.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Sign up for something you’ve never done. The people you meet will give you plenty to think about regarding customs, beliefs and lifestyles. A relationship will face change.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Use your time wisely. Making personal changes that will encourage financial gains or handling your money better should be your top priority. Romance is on the rise.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Volunteer to help someone you believe in or support a cause you feel strongly about. Your input will encourage help and support in return. A partnership looks promising.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Focus on status, reputation and important relationships. Make a change to the way you deal with health and bad habits. Physical challenges will help build strength and confidence.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Look for alternative ways to use your skills. Refuse to give in to anger and frustration or temptation. Consider what moves you the most and make that your goal.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Take an active role in how you handle financial, medical and legal matters. Don’t leave anything that’s important to you in someone else’s hands. Love and romance are encouraged.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Accept inevitable change and move in a direction that promises the greatest security. Assess your relationships with others, and consider who is an asset and who is a liability.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Don’t go overboard because someone else does. Walk away from temptation, and make changes to the way you live or to your relationships that will result in greater stability.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Creativity coupled with emotional desire will help you bring about positive changes to the way you handle money matters as well as your home life. Let your intuition guide you.
