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 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.

Neptune square Sun transit

I just finished up my Neptune square Sun transit (my Sun is at 11 degrees Sagittarius). This transit was very impactful and I wanted to share my experience with all of you.

For reference, my Sun is located in my 12th house in Sagittarius. My Sun is conjuct Uranus and my ascendant, trine my Aries Moon, sextile my Mars and Midheaven, and opposite my 6th house Chiron.

Here are a few key things that happened during my transit:

Problems with men in my life

  • The Sun is a masculine project and often represents the men in one’s life. As such, I wasn’t surprised that some very close men in my life disappointed me during this transit. For the majority of this transit, I’d had a very positive relationship with all of these men (at least, in my mind). What I didn’t realize was that I was focussing mostly on their positive qualities while ignoring their negative qualities.
  • It wasn’t until the last pass of Neptune squaring my Sun that everything came crashing down. Incidentally, most of the issues came to surface when the planet Saturn transited over my natal Neptune, which is the astrological equivalent of a wake-up call. Basically, I found out that these men were not who I thought they were. To be quite honest, I blame myself for not seeing these men clearly, for who they truly were. Hindsight is 20/20, and I kick myself for not recognizing the problems sooner. That’s the thing with Neptune – you have rose-colored glasses on the entire transit, so the crash is very painful
  • My advice: if you are in a Neptune transit and some people or relationships seem ‘too good to be true’, they ARE. It is imperative to stay as realistic as possible during this time and acknowledge the other person’s shortcomings. No one is perfect, and the more you remember that, the easier it will be later on. This goes for all hard Neptune transits.

Health issues

  • Health problems are common during Neptune transits. Neptune “illnesses” are generally hard to pinpoint or diagnose, and are often psychosomatic.
  • Up until my Neptune transit, I was an avid gym-goer. When the Neptune square hit my Sun, my fatigue increased more and more to the point that I was unable to work out, or do much rather than the bare minimum.
  • Neptune is currently square my Ascendant, and the fatigue has persisted. Hopefully this will end once this transit is over

Increased sensitivity

  • This transit was active at the same time as my Pluto square Moon transit, which led to some pretty explosive results.
  • Neptune tends to ‘sensitize’ anything it touches, so the direct contact to my moon meant I was more sensitive to the feelings and actions of others. Negative, high-strung people drained me, and I was easily hurt. Things tended to ‘get’ to me more during this transit, leading to a lot of tears and hurt feelings.

Overall, this was not a positive transit, and I’m very glad it’s over. As usual, I’m glad it happened because it has taught me so many lessons, namely to keep my guard up and not be so trusting of others. It also forced me to slow down and be easier on my body.

How to know if he or she is “the One”

Out of all the questions I get from my clients, the most popular is “Is he/she the One?”

There are so many factors that go into whether your partner is your soulmate. I will outline a few below:

  1. Good composite is more important than good synastry
    • This may not be a popular opinion, but throughout my consultations with clients, I notice over and over that good synastry cannot outweigh a bad composite chart. Why is this?
      • A good synastry chart shows the chemistry between two people. It shows if they are attracted to one another and why. It shows basic compatibility between a couple. This is very important when first bringing two people together.
      • The composite chart, on the other hand, relates to the destiny of the couple. It shows what the two of you create when you come together. You could have the most incompatible synastry connection with someone, but if you have a great composite chart, somehow things seem to keep you together.
    • From my personal experience, I’ve had some pretty significant synastric connections with my previous exes. For example, with one man I had Moon conjunct Venus, Mars conjunct Mars, Venus conjunct Ascendant, Venus conjunct Pluto, and a Sun conjunct Saturn double whammy! We were immediately attracted to one another and I was definitely thinking long-term with him. We went on a few dates and things were going well. Then, as things started to progress and things started getting serious, he started to pull away. This confused me – we felt so good in each other’s presence so why the sudden lack of interest?
    • I looked at our Composite chart and found the answer: we had a tight Sun conjunct Saturn AND Moon square Saturn connection. In Composite charts, it is said that the man represents the Sun while the woman represents the Moon. Saturn, on the other hand, rules responsibility, duty and limitations.
    • While he felt very responsible and committed towards me, the relationship, for whatever reason, made both of us feel very insecure. First of all, work always got in the way of our relationship. He was a very busy doctor who worked in another city, which made things difficult to begin with. When we did have time to go out, perfect strangers would tell me I was “too good for him”. He had a lot of difficulty with that – his ego was shattered when people said those things to us. On the other hand, the Moon in square aspect to the Composite Saturn, which I felt very strongly. I felt ignored, neglected, and cold in this relationship because he always seemed to put work ahead of me. To top things off, I didn’t feel I could express my ‘inner child’ around him; I felt I always needed to be a ‘grown-up’ around him, even though he was 3 years younger than me.
    • In the end, him and I didn’t work out. Regardless of what happened, I always felt happy around him when we were together (I credit this to Moon conjunct Venus – it’s really one of the best aspects in synastry you could hope for). However, we could not seem to ever get past the Saturn blockages we faced.
  2. Timing
    • Through Astrology, I have learned that all things come in good time!
    • You could meet someone amazing and feel that you are completely in love, but I find that the timing of your meeting is very helpful in telling whether this relationship will end up as a marriage.
    • Three things to check:
      • Transits:
        • Transits through the 7th house: major planets (Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto) can signal a major relationship change.
          • Obviously, Jupiter, the planet of good fortune and expansion, can bring someone into your life. This will likely be a joyful and expansive relationship for you.
          • Saturn entering the 7th can either end a current relationship or bring a new relationship into your life. Saturn can mean an older person or a relationship that will come with its obstacles/burdens along the way. My best friend got married to a man 20 years older than her when Saturn entered her 7th house, but it ended quite suddenly (she is a very Uranian person so Saturn didn’t suit her)
          • Uranus is the planet of freedom and originality. When this planet is in your 7th house, it can bring a new, exciting relationship that fizzles out just as quickly as it started. I do personally know some marriages that began when Uranus was in the 7th house of at least of the partners, but the two people were very different professionally, culturally, and ethnically.
          • Neptune can bring a dreamy love and a true feeling of finding one’s soulmate, while Pluto can bring a complete overhaul in the love department. You could attract a very intense and transformative love relationship at this time.
        • Transits to Venus and the ruler of your 7th house
          • Venus is the planet of love and affection, and has a direct link to relationships and especially soulmates! Because of this, transits to Venus are some of the best indicators of finding the “one”. You definitely want to look out for harmonious aspects to Venus from the outer planets, such as trines and sextiles, and sometimes even conjunctions
          • The ruler of the 7th house represents the type of partner you will end up with. This is very similar to Venus, as it relates to one-on-one partnerships and relationships
          • The BEST love transits are:
            • Jupiter conjunct/sextile/trine natal Venus or ruler of the 7th house
            • Saturn conjunct/sextile/trine natal Venus or ruler of the 7th house
            • Uranus conjunct/sextile/trine natal Venus or ruler of the 7th house
            • Neptune conjunct/sextile/trine natal Venus or ruler of the 7th house
            • Pluto conjunct/sextile/trine natal Venus or ruler of the 7th house
          • I find that a lot of people fall in love during a strong Neptune transit to natal Venus, but these relationships often do not work out. This is because Neptune is the planet of illusion, and by the end of the transit, you may find that the person you fell in love with isn’t the person you thought they were. During a harmonious Neptune-Venus transit, you can easily fall in love and the effects of Neptune will be much less taxing
        • Solar Returns
          • What does your Solar Return chart look like this year? The Solar return shows potentials for the year, including for marriage
          • Each and every Solar Return chart for the years I entered relationships were very heavy in the 5th and 7th houses
          • Look for a well-placed Venus and ruler of the 7th house for more details and clues
          • If you would like an astrologer to take a look at your Solar Return, visit my Consultations page to set up a reading with me
        • Progressions/Solar Arc
          • I don’t think it’s possible to NOT have a special progression or solar arc aspect when meeting the “one”. Progressions show major trends in our lives, so there needs to be some sort of progression involving the 7th house, Venus, or the ruler of the 7th house when the “one” enters your life.
          • Some examples of progression or solar arc aspects indicating love:
            • Progressed Sun-Venus aspects or Venus-Sun aspects – sextile, trine, conjunction
            • Progressed Ascendant-Venus aspects or Progressed Venus-Ascendant aspects – this one is the best indication for finding love
            • Progressed Venus-ruler of the 7th house or ruler of the 7th house to Venus aspects – indicates love and union
            • Progressed planets in the 7th house
            • Progressed planets making a harmonious aspect to the 7th house or 7th house ruler

I truly believe that true love comes down to compatibility, which is reflected through the synastry and composite charts, but it really comes down to the timing. THE UNIVERSE WILL NOT SEND YOU THE ‘ONE’ UNTIL YOU ARE READY. For those of you worried about your romantic future, fear not! You will find the ‘one’ in good time.
