What’s up with Khloe Kardashian?

We all know the Kardashians. They are American royalty in many respects: they get tons of attention in the media, are fashion icons, and people love to hate them. Love them or loathe them, everyone has an opinion on them. On the recent episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, they went over the drama that occurred between the family and Jordyn Woods (Kylie Jenner’s best friend) when Jordyn made out with Khloe’s baby daddy, Tristan.

It was well known to the family for a very long time that Tristan was a two-timing piece of trash. He had previously cheated on Khloe when she was pregnant with their daughter, True. Instead of kicking him to the curb, she took him back, which was a huge shock to everyone.

She had been through rough relationships in the past, as well. She was previously in a relationship with Lamar Odom, but their relationship broke apart after his drug problem and infidelity became too much for their relationship to endure.

Khloe is known by her family and friends to be someone who works very hard in her relationships, and doesn’t let go very easily, even in the face of infidelity and terrible mistreatment.

On her Instagram, I’ve seen hundreds of comments of fans pleading with her to ‘smarten up’ and find a partner who will respect and love her as she deserves. In the end, however, Khloe always seems to make the ‘wrong’ choice and end up in these situations over and over again. Why is this?

Khloe is a Cancer, a sign which is characterized as loving, caring, sensitive and co-dependent. Cancers are sweet as sugar, but if you cross them, you will get pinched. Her Sun is conjunct her natal Venus, which means she is a relationship-oriented individual. These types of people love to be in love and feel most complete when they are in a partnership. They are prone to loneliness and need to have a relationship to feel complete.

Her Ascendant is in Aquarius, meaning Leo is on the cusp of her descendant. This means that the Sun is the ruler of her 7th house. The 7th house ruler represents the type of partners we will attract in our lives. This planet, in addition to Venus, can be used to determine patterns in a person’s relationships. Unfortunately, Khloe has some pretty bad aspects to her Sun which explain her relationship past, and will inform her future in love.

Neptune, the planet which represents illusions, delusions, substance abuse, secrets and everything ‘behind the scenes’, opposes her natal Sun. People with this aspect tend to be forgiving to a fault, and tend to only see the best in others. They may attract or be attracted to partners who have mental or substance abuse problems, and feel a strong need to ‘save’ them. It is hard for them to let go, particularly when they feel their partners truly need them. They are vulnerable to manipulation due to their gullibility and inability to see the bad in others.

Looking at their synastry, there are some red flags that point to trouble. The Cancer-Pisces connection between their Suns is fabulous, as they are both very sensitive, emotional human beings. However, Tristan’s Uranus opposes Khloe’s Venus, which means that she will never feel he is truly committed to her. Their relationship will be very unpredictable and erratic, and she will not feel as though she can truly count on him. I saw an episode of the show where she was talking about how they don’t see each other too often & blamed it on his basketball schedule. From what their synastry tells me, Tristan experiences on-off feelings for her which prevents him from truly wanting to commit. If they were to rekindle their relationship, this will continue. Setting into a stable, predictable relationship will be very, very difficult with these two.

As if that was not bad enough, his Neptune also opposes her Venus. This is a classic indicator of deception and lies. This indicates that when caught, he may ‘play the victim’ to receive forgiveness from Khloe. It is very hard for her to see his negative qualities, and even if she does, she tends to ignore them. Tristan himself has a Venus-Neptune square in his natal chart, which means he is a very romantic, sensitive person, but has difficulty with honesty in his relationships. I wouldn’t be surprised if he has been in a relationship where he was lied/decieved/cheated on himself.

Khloe is not ‘stupid’ as most people believe, but she is delusional when it comes to her relationships. Unfortunately, this is not a quality she can just turn off, as it is in her natal chart. Given this, Khloe is doomed in her love life unless she makes some changes. She will continue to attract and enter relationships with deceptive individuals until she learns to LEAVE the men who exhibit deceptive, dishonest qualities. Given that she is forgiving (and quite honestly, very gullible), she needs to stop seeing her partners through rose-colored glasses. If she does not do this, she will continue to attract partners who cheat, lie and/or steal from her. She will continue to be with men who are deeply troubled or who she sees as ‘victim’ or ‘lost souls’ she needs to save.

I hope Khloe will soon find someone who truly loves her and exhibits the positive qualities of Neptune, such as compassion, sensitivity, and spiritual enlightenment. Her chart tells me she is an intensely spiritual individual, so she should focus on finding partners who share this quality with her. Good luck Khloe!

The Astrology of Beauty

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. It really is. Poll a group of people of what they think of a certain celebrity and you will get different results. For instance, I think Jessica Alba is absolutely gorgeous, yet my girl friend thinks she’s plain and boring. She is much more attracted to Catherine Zeta-Jones, who I think is just so-so. She’s pretty, of course, but I prefer a Jessica Alba look.

In this article, I am going to talk about traditional aspects which are said to point to beauty. This is not to say that everyone with these aspects will be drop-dead gorgeous, as the entire chart must be considered.

Venus-Ascendant aspects 

This one is obvious. Venus is the sign of beauty, and the Ascendant & first house represent our physical appearance. Many women and men with this aspect are considered universally beautiful. Think of Angelina Jolie (Venus conjunct Ascendant), Elizabeth Taylor (Venus trine Ascendant), Kim Kardashian (Venue square Ascendant), and Beyonce (Venus conjunct Ascendant).

Even if these people are not traditionally beautiful, there is a charm or air about them which is pleasing to others. They take care of themselves and care about the way they look. They are usually pleasant in nature, which makes them attractive to others.

Venus in the 1st house 

This works very similarly to above. With Venus in the house of appearance, beauty is usually indicated. These guys are gals were born to be beautiful! This aspect also indicates someone with a beautiful, proportionate body. Women with this aspect are usually quite curvy and sexy!

Celebrities with Venus in the 1st house are Kourtney Kardashian, Audrey Hepburn, and Blake Lively.

Venus in aspect to the ruler of the 1st house

To determine the ruler of your first house, first determine which sign is on the cusp of that house (or your ‘rising sign’). For example, Scarlett Johansson’s rising sign is Sagittarius, and its ruling planet is Jupiter. Scarlett’s Jupiter is conjunct her Venus in her 2nd house. Like her or not, she is widely considered a very beautiful woman. Kim Kardashian’s ascendant is also in Sagittarius, and her Jupiter makes a wide conjunction to her natal Venus.

Venus in aspect to the ruler of the 1st house works very similarly to aspects to the ascendant. When this occurs, it endows the person with beauty, charm and grace.

Neptune in the 1st house

Neptune is the higher octave of Venus, so it makes sense that it would indicate beauty. I find that Neptune is a different type of beauty, though – Neptunian women and men are glamorous, other-wordly. They stand out – they look different and can captivate others very easily.

So many beautiful women have this aspect, including Kim Kardashian, Marilyn Monroe, Ariana Grande, as well as handsome men such as Cristiano Ronaldo and Tom Cruise.

This aspect can also point to those who are very fond of plastic surgery, make up, and photoshop (Kylie Jenner has this aspect, and I mentioned Kim Kardashian above). Thus is because Neptune blurs the line between fantasy and reality. This can lead these folks to present an altered view of themselves to the world.

By the way, this also works if Neptune is in aspect to the Ascendant or is in aspect to the 1st house ruler. I have found that Pisces rising individuals have similar characteristics.

Venus-Neptune aspects

Over and over again, I keep seeing this aspect in the charts of supermodels and other ‘beautiful people’. This aspects give the native an ethereal type of beauty that gets noticed. They are dreamy-looking and usually have beautiful eyes. I personally love their sense of style.

Sun conjunct Ascendant or Leo Ascendant

While this is not a traditional beauty indicator, I’ve noticed that people with predominant Sun energy tend to be very attractive. Leos are known for being ‘attention-getters’. Given that the Sun is the ruler of Leo, individuals with their Sun on their Ascendant often share similar qualities to Leo Ascendant individuals.

I’ve noticed with my Leo Ascendant friends that they tend to always get tons of attention. I went to Las Vegas a few years ago with a group of friends, and one of them had a Leo Ascendant. She is very pretty, don’t get me wrong, but I was amazed at the amount of men chasing after her. She didn’t even have to do much – men would just flock to her like bees on honey. Leos just have that certain ‘something something’ that attract others to them.

Leo represents confidence & sass. These people exude these qualities to the rest of the world.  How you perceive yourself informs how others perceive you, so it’s easy to understand why Leos are so irresistible!

Famous Leo Ascendant individuals include Jennifer Lopez, Beyonce, and Heidi Klum. Some celebs with Sun conjunct their Ascendant are Kourtney Kardashian and Scarlett Johansson.

 

ANYWAY, this is not an exhaustive list. I will continue to add to it as I observe more. There are tons of women and men out there who do not have any of these aspects, but are beautiful! So, please don’t take this list as the be-all end-all for beauty 🙂

The Lunar Eclipse of July 16-17

Following the Solar Eclipse of July 2nd, a Lunar Eclipse is occurring on July 16-17. This Lunar Eclipse is taking place along the Capricorn-Cancer axis.

The themes of Capricorn are career, responsibility & duty, while Cancer represents the home, family, and emotions. Given that the eclipse is in Capricorn, the greater focus will be on themes of this sign.

Whatever occurs during the Solar Eclipse often comes into action by the time of the Lunar Eclipse. For example, a friend of mine announced his resignation from the company he worked at for over 12 years during the Solar Eclipse in January, and began his new job 2 weeks later on the day of the Lunar Eclipse. It was both an ending and a new beginning for him.

This Lunar Eclipse occurs at the 24th degree of Capricorn, so if you have planets between 19-29 degrees of any cardinal sign (i.e. Aries, Libra, Capricorn, Cancer), you will feel the effects of this eclipse deeply.

The Eclipse Moon is conjunct the planet Pluto, which represents death, rebirth, shared resources & power struggles. This indicates the Lunar eclipse will be deeply transformative and intense.  It can indicates very deep feelings or secrets will be brought to the surface in an explosive manner.

On the same day, Venus will also be in opposition to the planet Saturn, which indicates a time of sadness and limitations, particularly in regards to Venusian areas such as finances and love. Overall, we are in for a very intense day. There will be an air of negativity, and people will be more tired/grumpy than usual. This, paired with the explosive lunar eclipse, indicates transformations and possibly upsetting changes in the house the eclipse takes place:

Lunar Eclipse in the 1st house/ Capricorn Ascendant:

During this time, expressing yourself may be easier for you. Since the eclipse is also conjunct Pluto, be careful not to express anger or frustration in destructive ways. This Eclipse can also signal a complete transformation in your physical appearance – this may signal a new you! I’d suggest waiting until after the Venus opposite Saturn transit is out of orb, as you may regret any beauty-related changes later on.

This is the time to focus on yourself. If you have previously been focusing too much on your partnerships, this Lunar Eclipse will shine a light on taking care of yourself. Your partner may not like this, and power struggles may ensue. Issues of control may develop during this period. In the end, you will put your needs first!

Lunar Eclipse in the 2nd house/ Sagittarius Ascendant

This Lunar Eclipse affects your house of finances and self-worth. With Pluto conjunct the eclipse, you can expect a transformation in terms of financial gains and losses. You may discover a new way to increase your income during this time, completely different from how you have ever made money before. You may also create a budget or make changes/decision as to how you manage your finances.

At worst, you could suffer major losses during this period (this really depends on other factors in your chart, such as your transits, progressions, etc). Unexpected expenses could pop up, or you may be forced to make a big purchase.

Lunar Eclipse in the 3rd house/ Scorpio Ascendant

In the 3rd house, a Lunar eclipse shines light on the area of siblings, communication, education, transportation & ones neighborhood.

There may be emotional confrontations with your brothers, sisters, and/or cousins, and a subsequent transformation in your relationship with them. Or, deep secrets related to them may come to surface.

As the 3rd house relates to communications, you may experience miscommunications for the months following the lunar eclipse. In addition, the 3rd house relates to technology, so you may experience issues related to computers, telephone or television.

Lunar Eclipse in the 4th house/ Libra Ascendant

In the 4th house, a lunar eclipse brings attention to the home, family and the past. Often times, this lunation brings a move or the start or end to a home renovation project. It can also bring separations from the home or parents, such as moving away from home for the first time.

At worst, this eclipse can bring forth power struggles within the home with one’s parents. Deep secrets from the past may be unearthed, leading to an explosive confrontation.

Lunar Eclipse in the 5th house/ Virgo Ascendant

An eclipse in the 5th house brings the attention to fun, creativity, children and love! This lunation can signal the end of a creative project, such as writing a book or completing an art piece.

This eclipse can also bring good news to those trying to conceive (as long as other transits/progressions do not interfere). Many couples become pregnant during a lunar eclipse in this house.

For those of you who are single and ready to mingle, this transit can bring increased romantic and sexual opportunities into your life! You are extended invitations to social events and you have a strong desire to have fun.

Lunar Eclipse in the 6th house/ Leo Ascendant

The 6th house is regarded as the house of health and work. As a result, you may decide to take up a new diet or exercise routine during this period. Be wary of taking on anything too extreme, as this can have health consequences later one.

At work, you may experience changes in the workplace, particularly as they relate to your work environment and your colleagues. It is possible that you will experience power struggles with those you work with. Emotions may run high in the workplace at this time. You may see some colleagues get let go, as well.

Lunar Eclipse in the 7th house/ Cancer Ascendant

The 7th house refers to close 1-1 partnerships, including romantic & business. With the lunar eclipse in conjunction to Pluto, partnerships may be tested. Relationships may transform during this time, for the better or the worse (this will largely depend on other progressions/transits going on in your chart!).

At best, this eclipse can take your relationship to the next level. If you started dating someone, you may decide to become exclusive. Some couples may decide to marry during this eclipse.

At worst, this eclipse can signal a crisis in your relationship. Secrets may be unearthed at this time, or there may be significant power struggles between you and your partner. If you are experiencing difficulty in your relationship, you and your partner should try to find a balance or compromise between your needs.

Lunar Eclipse in the 8th house/ Gemini Ascendant

This eclipse signals a changes in regards to your partner’s income, or your taxes, debts, and investments. This house also represents intimacy, death & sex. This eclipse indicates there may be some drama in these areas, particularly with Pluto’s influence.

Your need for intimacy & emotional death through a partner is increased during this period. Superficial interactions just won’t do during this time. There may be a death (figurative or literal) during time time, as well. There may be issues surrounding the sharing of resources, or you may pay off debts. This eclipse will also shine a light on your shared resources. There may be conflicts in this area. Compromise and understanding will help you through this time.

Lunar Eclipse in the 9th house/ Taurus Ascendant

The 9th house represents travel, education & your belief system.

There could be an important beginning or ending in regards to education. You may decide to begin a higher learning course, or end one. This eclipse can also indicate you are going on a long journey to a foreign land in the next 6 months.

Since the 9th house also relates to your belief system, you may decide to learn about different religious systems or even join another religious movement.

The tenth house represents ones public life, career, and social standing. With this eclipse, you may experience an end or a beginning related to your job. That is to say, you may decide to quit your current job to take on something more emotionally fulfilling. If you decide to stay in your current role, you may receive more responsibility or you may have a change of authority. Regardless, something is going to change in your career. At worst, this can indicate being fired or laid off.

Lunar Eclipse in the 11th house/ Pisces Ascendant

The eleventh house represents friendships, long term goals, and group activities.

During this time, you may experience transformations in your friendships or groups you belong to. You may decide to end some friendships or begin new ones. If things have been brimming below the surface between you and some friends, these issues will come to the surface. Or, a friend of yours may e experiencing a personal crisis for which they need help.

Your goals may also go through a deep transformation. An event may occur which will force you to reconsider your future aspirations.

The Solar Eclipse of July 2, 2019

It’s that time of year again! We have a Solar Eclipse at 10 degrees Cancer on July 2nd, 2019.

As a rule of thumb, solar eclipses represent new beginnings. They generally mark the beginning of a new cycle and the ending of an old one. As an astrologer, I find that the effects of the solar eclipse can be felt a month before or after an eclipse, so keep that in mind!

Since this eclipse is in Cancer, it will affect those who have planets between 5-15 degrees of the Cardinal signs (Capricorn, Aries, Cancer, and Libra). Being in Cancer, the eclipse has the potential to bring family issues to the forefront, but in a positive way. This is a great time for family get-togethers, hosting events in your home, interior decorating, taking up a cooking class, or connecting with family members you may have lost touch with.

This Solar Eclipse does not make many close aspects to other transiting planets. It is in a loose sextile to Uranus, which can bring positive changes and surprises to one’s home life, or to the house in which the Solar Eclipse is found. It is in a large trine to Neptune, which brings an air of compassion and sensitivity to our environment.

Of course, the most important part of a Solar Eclipse is how it affects your own chart. To determine this, we must look at the house the Eclipse falls in, as well as the aspects it makes to your natal chart.

Solar Eclipse in the 1st house/Cancer Ascendant

In the 1st house, the Solar Eclipse brings new beginnings to areas surrounding self-worth, confidence, and physical appearance. This is the time for a brand new YOU. During this time, you may decide to get a more daring haircut, or experiment with different fashion trends, thanks to the sextile from exciting Uranus. Take this opportunity to meet new people and make connections.

Solar Eclipse in the 2nd house/Gemini Ascendant

The Second house represents financial matters. With this eclipse, you may find new ways of increasing your income via a new business opportunity. This is a fantastic time to budget, meet with your accountant, and pay off debts. This eclipse can also signal a change in job which provides you a higher salary. This transit can also increase ones desire for materials objects, and many of you may decide to make a large purchase at this time.

Solar Eclipse in the 3rd house/Taurus Ascendant

This Eclipse brings your relationship with your siblings, relatives and transportation into the spotlight. The 3rd house also represents communication and short-term travel, so perhaps something regarding a writing project or a trip will come to fruition. You may receive a surprising phone call or letter at this time.

Solar Eclipse in the 4th house/Aries Ascendant 

This is a powerful eclipse for you! Having a Solar Eclipse in Cancer in the 4th house  will put your focus on your home and family life. Many of you will move at this time. A major home renovation may occur, or surprises involving family members may surface. This is a great time for family get-togethers and connecting with relatives you have not seen in a long time.

Solar Eclipse in the 5th house/Pisces Ascendant 

This Eclipse will put your focus on fun, romance, children, creativity, and risk-taking. This Eclipse could involve surprises involving your romantic partners, or your children. You may solidify a relationship that has been on shaky ground, or a new relationship may enter your life. Couples may be blessed with news of a baby at this time. If single, this is a great time to go out and meet new people. Overall, this is a time of fun and joy for those who are lucky enough to experience this eclipse!

Solar Eclipse in the 6th house/Aquarius Ascendant 

This Eclipse will put your focus on your health, workplace, routines, and pets. Surprising announcements regarding your job may occur at this time, and health issues may pop up. You may decide to begin a new exercise regimen or diet at this time, or you may decide to adopt a new pet.

Solar Eclipse in the 7th house/Capricorn Ascendant 

This Eclipse will put your focus on your one-on-one relationships.  The Lunar Eclipse may indicate that you will solidity your commitment to someone special. Relationships are likely to go to the next level during this Eclipse. This period can also indicate you beginning a new business partnership. You will make new connections with others and you will not want to be alone at this time.

Solar Eclipse in the 8th house/Sagittarius Ascendant 

The focus of this Eclipse will be on sex, intimacy, shared resources, death, and re-birth. New sexual opportunities may pop up during this lunar Eclipse, which is great news for all! You may experienced increased intimacy with your partner. This is likely to be a highly emotional time for you, but it presents a great opportunity to get close to someone special. In Cancer, your need to emotionally bond with your partner is increased – superficial interactions just won’t cut it at this time!

Solar Eclipse in the 9th house/Scorpio Ascendant 

The focus of this eclipse will be on travel, higher education, and/or religion. This eclipse may bring you to foreign lands. A new opportunity to study, or the completion of a project may occur at this time. You may experience a desire to study philosophy or religion during this period.

Solar Eclipse in the 10th house/Libra Ascendant 

The focus of the Eclipse will be on your career, social status, and reputation. During this time, a promotion, career change, or public recognition for your efforts may occur.

Solar Eclipse in the 11th house/Virgo Ascendant 

The focus on this Eclipse will be on friendships, clubs or associations you belong to, or past lovers. You feel more social at this time and will want to spend more time with your good friends. New friends could come into your life at this time, or an ex-lover could come knocking on your door.

Solar Eclipse in the 12th house/Leo Ascendant 

The focus of the Eclipse will be on 12th house matters, which include secrets, addictions, spirituality, dreams, and self-undoing. A well-kept secret may burst forth during this eclipse (especially as they relate to relationships), so watch out! You may experience a greater-than-average need for peace, quiet, and solitude in order to get away from it all. Meditation and spiritual retreats are favored.
