Astrology Charts: Power & Influence

Astrology Charts: Power & Influence

Many people are fascinated about the accuracy of what astrological charts are able to describe about a person. I would say that astrology is a complex skill and it is definitely possible to describe very accurately various areas about a person’s life, surrounding environments and their psychological approaches.

So the question today is “Can we tell if a person has Power & Influence over others from the chart”?

Usually when we are looking at a topic such as Power, we will refer to the Pluto indicator and its position in the chart. It would describe how a person experiences: fears, power, dominance and also transformation. (To see where Pluto is in you chart click here to generate your astrological chart.)


In this article, we’ll be looking at the charts of some influential individuals such as; Charles Manson and Mother Theresa who have managed to have a strong influence over others.


Charles Manson’s Bio:

Charles Manson was an American criminal, cult leader of the Manson Family. He was convicted of first-degree murder and conspiracy to commit murder for the deaths of seven people, all of which were carried out by manipulative influence and at his instruction by members of the group.

From his chart, it describes Charles as a very charming person with the ability to assert himself in relationships with people in a sexy or seductive manner (Sun Conjunct Venus in Scorpio). This corresponds to what Actor Al Lewis described him as “A nice guy when I knew him” when Charles was helping to babysit his children on several occasions. The chart also describes his ability to communicate his ideas and beliefs with intensity when relating to others on a one-on-one basis. (Mercury Conjunct Jupiter in Scorpio in 7th House) This describes his influence onto other people in a way which may be intense in controlling or dominating their emotions and thoughts. Despite running a cult, it was his ability to have very close relationships with each of the cult members that had contributed to the power he had over them to commit the serial murders.


Mother Theresa’s Bio:

Mother Teresa of Calcutta was a Catholic nun and missionary. She founded the Missionaries of Charity, a Roman Catholic religious congregation which manages homes for people dying of HIV/AIDS, leprosy and tuberculosis; soup kitchens; dispensaries and mobile clinics; children’s- and family-counselling programmes; orphanages, and schools. Her acts of compassion were recognised and were awarded with honours such as the Ramon Magsaysay Peace Prize and the Nobel Peace Prize, inspiring and influencing others to contribute greatly to her causes.

From her chart, it describes her being an impactful communicator when relating to people especially on a one-on-one basis (Pluto Conjunct Descendant in Gemini). Her influence on others may be about bringing her ideas and beliefs across in a transformative manner mainly driven by wanting to be of service to others (Pluto Square Mercury in Virgo in 9th House). The way she views her society and communities is to provide a deep and penetrative way of looking and questioning ideas (Pluto Ruler of 11th House). The way she makes a difference onto people’s lives is to find healing and contribute to others, compassionately and giving selflessly (Pluto Trine Chiron in Pisces).

A Journey Through The Stars: RADO TRUE STAR SIGN Launches In Singapore

By Michelle Yee, 3 May 2018

In conjunction with the launch of its new collection—RADO True Star Sign—luxury Swiss watchmaker RADO, in collaboration with Wine & Dine, presented an exclusive showcase to specially invited guests at Saint Pierre, a three-star award winner of Wine & Dine’s Singapore’s Top Restaurants.

Guests were greeted with welcome drinks from French winemaker Chateau Gauthier, and delicate pre-dinner snacks by chef Emmanuel Stroobant such as red paper crisp with smoked eggplant puree. Guests mingled, ate and drank while admiring the limited edition timepiece collection. Some tried them on and were mesmerised by the intricacies of the timepieces—each piece is crafted in highly scratch resistant plasma high-tech ceramic, and features a gorgeous blue mother of pearl dial. The design for each horoscope sign is put together with diamonds and star appliques.

Up next was a four-course wine pairing dinner, thoughtfully put together by chef Stroobant. The meal got off to a good start with the herb-crusted purple artichoke served in a turmeric emulsion, which tasted as good as it looked. The second dish of the night, the black truffle with wild mushroom and organic Japanese egg was masterfully prepared and was a hit with everyone at the table. A choice of French seabass or French capon were given for the mains, before a delightful blood orange and chocolate dessert was served.


During dinner, renowned astrologer May Sim from Selfstrology gave an insightful talk about the different traits and characteristics of each horoscope sign. The night ended with some lucky guests getting in-depth readings of their star sign by Sim.

For more information, visit their boutique at B1-86/87, The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands.

Are You Ready for the Crash-Through? (12 May – 10 Oct) – Astrological Signs

Are You Ready for the Crash-Through? (12 May – 10 Oct) – Astrological Signs

This is a period of wanting to break free of past constraints and letting go of security blankets for many people. It may be a trying time for some as this comes as a rude shock and an uncomfortable period to be challenging the self and possibly even authority figures. For astrology enthusiasts, this is the Mars Retrograde transit, commonly known to cause issues for people wanting to take action, but finding external factors hindering the progress and preventing the native from moving forward.

In this article, we will cover and describe how would this particular transit affect the 8 signs: Aries, Taurus, Cancer, Leo, Libra, Scorpio, Capricorn & Aquarius. (*Note: Not everyone with the signs will be affected, only those with birthdays indicated will be most affected.) If your sign is not highlighted in the article, you are not primarily affected by this transit.

Birthdays between 20 Apr – 23 Apr

For the period between 12 May – 10 Oct, you may find that there is an impetus to push hard for changes or to embark on a new initiative plan. However, things might not move as smoothly as expected. You or other people may potentially find many flaws in the quality or practical aspects of the plan and this may cause you to lose your patience easily. Nevertheless, this is also a reminder to yourself to slow your actions down and to have a well-thought-through plan before executing them. By accepting higher standards and quality practical considerations, it may prove to help you move the project smoothly in the future.

For the period between 12 May – 10 Oct, it may occur as a period of instability and perhaps chaos, which you may feel slightly uncomfortable with. Amidst the inspiration and newfound enthusiasm, you find that there is a balance struggle between catering to the needs of others, society at large or even groups and communities versus personal resources such as time, money and effort. During this period, it is important to persevere with your original intentions, while also learning that in giving, it would reap many returns with respect to personal growth and self-value.

Birthdays between 21 Jul – 25 Jul

For the period between 12 May – 10 Oct, it is a test of your ability to adapt to changes. You may find that it is necessary to make changes to processes for future growth, which could mean leaving and breaking free from what you thought was secure and comfortable. Learning to adapt to new environments may involve stress and it may be an uncomfortable position, resulting in losing your temper easily and finding other people to be irritable (especially in a one-on-one relationship). Other people may seem insensitive to your emotions, but it is important to maintain objectivity and putting your self-value into areas which are most productive in.

For the period between 12 May – 10 Oct, there is a strong sense of individuality and feeling frustrated that you are not recognised or valued for your contributions. Other people may accuse or find you to be selfish or egoistic. Despite this, the way to help cope with these situations is to shift from being too focused on your perspectives to finding ways in which your contributions may provide value to others and be more community-oriented.

Birthdays between 22 Oct – 26 Oct

holiday and festival backdrops

For the period between 12 May – 10 Oct, you may experience that issues to do with one-on-one relationships or partnerships may seem shaky or unstable. This may be due to non-performance of certain expectations or obligations in the relationship. A good recommendation is to have good quiet time between the parties involved to communicate clearly the expectations, committing to the different roles and responsibilities to be fulfilled in the relationship or partnership.

For the period between 12 May – 10 Oct, you may experience sudden changes in your environment such as people who are close to you (professionally or personally) may seem unpredictable. This may result in rising tensions, the potential for disputes and disagreements, causing your expectations of comfort and stability to be threatened. Nevertheless, these circumstances force breakthroughs and it’s an opportunity to work out the differences or to break out and put an end to previously restrictive positions.

Birthdays between 19 Jan – 23 Jan

For the period between 12 May – 10 Oct, there may be additional stress at work with unforeseen or erratic changes, which may involve more stringent assessments and evaluations of personal productivity and effectiveness. The effects of the stress may impose limitations on personal life such as wanting to pursue other hobbies or having work-life balance and not being able to spend more time with partners. A positive use of this energy is to objectively re-evaluate mundane and dead-weight processes that might not have been productive. Being able to pool together available resources to complete the tasks or job effectively may prove to be especially useful.

For the period between 12 May – 10 Oct, erratic or unforeseen changes may not be new to you, however, it is important to keep the overconfidence in check to handle the situation better. You may find the additional spurt of energy to indulge and spending resources to pursue the new project. However, this may result in wasted efforts and valuable resources which may not eventually produce the expected outcomes.  Perhaps, by clearly identifying and allocating your resources into the right purposes with sustainable objectives, only innovating and making changes to areas which require the necessary changes to avoid wasted efforts.

Are You Ready for the Crash-Through?

Are You Ready For The Crash Through?

Rebel-Making Transits in May – Oct 2018


In the month of May, many of us will notice the level of ‘fed-upness’ maxing out around us. The combined transit of Uranus entering Taurus for the first time in 80 years and Mars retrograde hitting the same degrees is going to make rebels of many people who have, up to now, been putting up with constraints in their lives.


The Technical Astrology

Uranus, last seen in Taurus in 1942, transits into Taurus again from 16 May 2018 and will stay so for about 7 years. As Taurus is a material symbol, the world may see the economy, money systems and material structures be overturned, suddenly change directions and have new developments emerge within these 7 years.

On a personal level, most of us may experience similar changes with our income, money portfolios or even the way we see, think about or handle money and possessions.

Mars joins in the party, retrograding between 28 Capricorn and 9 Aquarius, forming a transiting fixed square with transit Uranus between May to October 2018. Mars in Aquarius can be detached, perverse, and very capable of carrying out actions that you wouldn’t normally.


What You’ll Experience

Universally, accidents may be more common, and these include road, air, train and technology-type accidents. Rebellious, anarchist and provocative behaviour is more widespread than usual – it’s driven by a high level of frustration and impatience.

People who have been contemplating a career/job change will finally make the change, or have the changes made for them anyway. Relationships that exist only in form but without affinity may not survive this transit. Businesses and other systems that are out of integrity enough to crumble in a tremor will crumble.

Many people survive life by putting up with unsatisfactory situations: jobs that don’t work, relationships that don’t do any relating, money management that doesn’t create value etc. but they give a gamut of excuses to justify why none of these unsatisfactory situations are dealt with, but typically the real reason is the need for predictability, familiarity, fear of the unknown – all at the expense of true freedom and authenticity towards the self.

All this changes in May – Oct 2018… but despite developing the will to make changes, circumstances don’t cooperate and there will be much frustration that change isn’t implemented smoothly.

The feeling is like the body having to serve a six-month notice period at work when you’ve 100% left the job heart, mind and soul.


The Silver Lining

Because there’s always the bright side. The Uranian and Aquarian influence in this transit favours experimentation, out-of-the-box thinking, technology and the ability to break from rigid constraints to express more authentically our ideas, actions and sentiments.

Businesses modernise and innovate more, moving away from operations of yesteryears. Employees find ways to freelance, or find freer ways of working without compromising productivity – indeed many will be surprised to find themselves being more creative and productive in the absence of constraints.

Adherence to traditional structures that give security reduces drastically, which can be a painful experience for those who cling desperately to monuments that no longer have a place in the present or the future.


Who’ll Be Affected

Uranus moving into Taurus will be felt universally, as is already attested to by the move into cashless systems, new methods of payment etc. (transitions to cashless/digital money will be completed while Uranus is in Taurus).

If you can read an astrology chart, those getting the full benefit of the transiting fixed square in May – Oct 2018 are any persons who have planets at 29 Aries to 2 Taurus, 29 Cancer to 2 Leo, 29 Libra to 2 Scorpio, 29 Capricorn to 2 Aquarius.

Mercury Retrograde (12 Mar – 27 Apr) – Aries, Cancer, Libra & Capricorn Are You Affected?

Mercury Retrograde (12 Mar – 27 Apr) – Aries, Cancer, Libra & Capricorn Are You Affected?

Mercury Retrogrades are commonly discussed among Astrologers as these periods are infamously depicted to be “bad” or “negative”. However, it’s not always the case and it’s just that things tend to move slower, which may also give more time for you to think things through carefully before acting on it.

That being said, the saving grace is that not everyone is affected by this transit and that it may last for only up to 7 weeks between 12 Mar – 27 Apr. In this article, we will cover and describe how would this particular transit affect the 4 signs: Aries, Cancer, Libra & Capricorn.

*Note: Not everyone with the signs Aries, Cancer, Libra & Capricorn will be affected. Only those with birthdays indicated will be most affected.


Aries Birthdays between 25 – 30 Mar
For the period of 12 Mar – 27 Apr, this would be generally a period of settling and slowing down. You may experience this as an uncomfortable period that you may not always be used to. You may feel restrictive and find difficulty to speak up or express your thoughts properly. To ease and find ways to dissipate the restlessness, do maintain your patience and direct your energy towards being more productive.


Cancer Birthdays between 26 Jun – 1 Jul
For the period of 12 Mar – 27 Apr, during this period you may feel quite helpless when dealing with 1-on-1 relationships with other people (especially with people of authority), feeling that they may oppose your plans and hinder your progress. You may find that things may improve if you avoid clashing head-on in arguments, to consider new perspectives and opportunities. A tip is to understand that this may be a cycle in life and a natural flow.


Libra Birthdays between 28 Sep – 3 Oct
For the period of 12 Mar – 27 Apr, energy will be generally down during this period. You may find difficulty in trying to execute your thoughts and plans smoothly. It may be challenging to express yourself or voice your opinions especially if you feel that it might affect relationships. To help tide yourself through this period is to collect your thoughts to understand the issue from both perspectives.


Capricorn Birthdays between 26 – 31 Dec
For the period of 12 Mar – 27 Apr, you may feel restricted from performing your tasks or plans and it may stem from finding difficulty in voicing your opinions, afraid that it may affect the positive impression that you give to authority figures. You may like to consider the issues objectively and rationally without having to jump straight into nasty arguments. Do take the time to put the effort and work towards the things that are important and matters to you.

Your 2016 Astrology: What is the Biggest Difference Between Astrology And Horoscopes?


Credit: TheFinder Magazine


Do you read the horoscope section in newspapers and magazines and find that it doesn’t really add up? Here’s why.

Why Horoscopes “Don’t Work”

Of course they don’t – if you’re going by monthly predictions based on the 12 zodiac signs. Most intelligent people aren’t going to buy the idea that there are only 12 types of personalities and consequently, 12 “destinies” on any given month.

Real astrology should deliver unique interpretations for EVERY unique living individual. Let’s look at real-life examples for the sign Pisces.

Here are the charts of three famous Pisceans (featuring only Sun, Moon and Venus positions):


Albert Einstein

Steve Jobs

Justin Bieber

14 Mar 1897, 11.30am

24 Feb 1955, 5.15pm

1 Mar 1994, 12.56am

Ulm, Germany

San Francisco, USA

London, Canada

 Sun in Pisces

Sun in Pisces

Sun in Pisces

Moon in Sagittarius

Moon in Aries

Moon in Libra

in Capricorn


in Aquarius

*Other planets have been removed from the charts so as not to confuse readers unfamiliar with astrology charts


Newspaper ‘Horoscopes’ make everyone in a sign sound identical
Pisceans: they’re dreamy, creative, idealistic, spiritual, soft, and they see a world no one else sees. It’s strange that these words should all apply to three very distinct individuals; yet they do.

From a world-renowned scientist who came up with the formula for energy, to an IT professional whose bold design revolutionised the world, and a teen pop star who inspires hysterical female groupies, all three men are manifestations of the concept of Pisces in their own ways, yet they are as different as three people could be.

Other Sign Placements Distinguish Individuals Within a Sign
For the purpose of this article I’ve selected the Moon and Mars to be examined in the three charts. You’d have noticed that the three men have different Moon and Mars signs.

Moon governs how we express our emotional and security needs, and often, in the case of male subjects, the unconscious factors that drive actions and achievements.

– Einstein had his in Sagittarius, which indicates that he’s driven by the pursuit of knowledge and expanding the mind – this is a placement that favours research and travel (which can be mental as well as physical).

– Jobs had his in Aries, typically associated with a pioneering, entrepreneurial bent, competitiveness and being first, or being the first to do things. Little wonder he was able to channel that creative energy into meeting his entrepreneurial objectives, and Apple Inc. has always been known for maintaining its competitive edge.

– Bieber has his in Libra, and this describes the need to maintain balance, harmony, beauty and/or indulge in the arts for his unconscious emotional needs. As Bieber’s a music artiste, this Moon placement is quite apt.

Mars, especially in a man’s chart, describes how one goes about achieving one’s goals. The sign that Mars is in will correspond to the manner of asserting oneself.

– Einstein’s Mars is in Capricorn – this is a sign suited to those who work within established, conventional structures. Einstein had operated largely within university and governmentfunded research frameworks.

– Jobs’s Mars in Aries reflects yet again that entrepreneurial, ‘I am’ mentality. The downside of this placement is a tendency to neglect the desires or opinions of others, and indeed Jobs had a reputation for being somewhat difficult to work with.

– Bieber has Mars in Aquarius, associated usually with an unconventional way of doing things. This placement can be provocative, and already Bieber has been known to embody a “black rapper” image incongruous with his own upper middle class Canadian upbringing.
On a positive side, Mars in Aquarius can describe someone who works for the collective good and/or is able to innovate, challenging stale and staid norms – Justin Bieber is still only 22 years old; how he uses that Mars in future still remains to be seen.


How Can Monthly Newspaper “Horoscopes” Describe “Destinies” of Millions Accurately?
If you consider how vastly different two people can be, it makes little sense to predict that “June will be a romantic month for all Geminis”, for example, when some where in the world there have to be Geminians is going through breakups.

Monthly “horoscopes” are only accurate as far as they describe how the sense of self (indicated by the Sun sign) is challenged or supported by current planetary transits to that particular Sun sign. For a reading to make sense for a specific individual, transits and other movements have to be taken into account for the entire chart, and not just one component.

You’ll now think twice before you eliminate Scorpios from your dating calendar because “that website told me I’m not compatible with Scorpios”! Remember that we’re all very complex, multi-faceted individuals!

Your 2016 Astrology: Does Your Child’s Career Depend on the Horoscope?


Credit: TheFinder Magazine


How do children learn, play and encounter the world based on their astrological chart?


Truth be told, I seldom do children’s charts. There are already too many influences trying to mould children using conventional cookie cutters, and I’m a believer in allowing individuals to grow their way, in their own time. After all, I’m a proponent of a profiling tool that charts each person as a unique individual!

Having said that, if you’re open to allowing your child to develop in their own unique individual ways (never mind if what they’re doing isn’t conventional or typically money-spinning), an astrological examination might be one of greatest gifts a parent can give to your child.


Going by Sun Signs is going to give you an incomplete information

Take Lindsay Lohan, who is a Cancer – it’s a sign typically associated with nurturing, sensitive, emotional children. Cancerians are usually described as quiet, retreating individuals; all well and good, but barely traits you’d associate with Lindsay Lohan, right?


How Children Learn and Early Life

The Third House in the chart will describe how one learns, communicate, and think. Planets in the Third House will give indications of the topics one is interested in, as well as conditions necessary to stimulate mental activity.

Lindsay Lohan has Venus here; she’s interested in things associated with fashion, beauty, aesthetics, art, plus this placement usually indicates someone who knows how to sugar-coat communication. Venus is in the sign of Leo, so self-expression will be the primary factor for what drives learning for her.

For children with this placement, it’s recommended to channel them to artistic pursuits, such as speech and dramapainting classes, role-playing, scenario learning. You want to make sure they get to show off, inject their personal touch and be creative. The downside of the placement is that thinking can be self-centred, so parents will have to ensure that taking into account the needs of others are instilled in their thinking process.


‘Career Indicators’ Can Be Interpreted on a Spectrum

The chart gives valuable clues about the condition of the child’s career path, and indeed Linday Lohan’s career indicators are pretty strong. Jupiter in Pisces in the 10th house (that’s the grey one that looks like a ‘4’) describes a career that is imaginative, boundless and has a sense of fantasy and glamour (appropriate for an acting career).

Achieving success should not typically pose a problem for her. However Jupiter makes red tension lines to Chiron in the 12th house (the green ‘key’) and Uranus in the Sixth House (the blue icon), and this can indicate problems with alcohol, drugs, an adrenaline-charged environment, and the typical “wild child” image. This description would fit in with Lohan’s reputation for speeding, drink driving, partying and incessant drug use.

All is not lost, however, for a child with Lohan’s placements, for an alternative interpretation could run as such: The same chart could also well describe someone in the helping professions, such as therapists helping those with drug and alcohol problems, for example, or perhaps an activist fighting for the rights of disadvantaged groups of people (that would account for the adrenaline-charged environment).

The chart will describe the conditions associated with one’s career, and a chart examination will reveal the spectrum for which the indicators lie, and parents can channel the child to use those energies, or express the conditions in positive, rather than destructive ways.

Remember, the Chart Will Describe One’s Unique Path

When parents get a chart examination done for their children, it’s important to remember that the child is a unique individual – what they want to do or end up doing may not be your idea of a viable career path (so many of us are doing work our parents balk at everyday!), and some of them have tough lessons built in to mould them into becoming the person they are.

A competent examination of the chart can be an invaluable tool for parenting and guidance, or self-discovery, if used to examine yourself.

Your 2016 Astrology: Is Your Career Right for You?

Credit: TheFinder Magazine

Searching for our vocation is easily among the most pressing concerns for anyone. What do your stars say?

I often get questions like, “Can you look at my chart and tell me what industry I should be in?” Now, the truth is, an astrologer doesn’t look at your chart and go “Ah, you’re a nurse / lawyer / florist / road sweeper!”, simply because there isn’t a planet, sign or house that’s assigned to every single possible vocation on earth.

What an astrologer CAN see though, is if a sense of right and wrong is paramount to you. Or if you absolutely judge your career choices by monetary remuneration alone, or vice versa, you don’t care about the remuneration, as long as the job involves doing things you enjoy. We can see if you have creative talent for writing, music, design, or that you have the desire to get into such professions, but don’t have the requisite innate talent to actually succeed at the top of the game.

Here is a glimpse of what astrologers look at when doing career readings:

Example: Chart of Steven Spielberg, born on 18 December 1946 at 6.16pm in Cincinnati, Ohio, USA

A) The Ruler of the Midheaven

The Midheaven is the black arrow at the top of the chart, and it is one of the indicators of your “life path”, which, for most of us, determines the kind of work we end up doing. The ruler of the sign on the Midheaven indicates the kind of industry that’s most aligned with our career objectives, and also describes our approach to it.

For example, Spielberg’s Midheaven ruler is Jupiter in Scorpio in the 5th house. 5th house: associated with creative product, such as the media, leisure, fun, children.
Scorpio: intense, penetrative, not doing things in half-measures

Given the fact the Steven Spielberg is still one of Hollywood’s top directors, the career indicator is a fitting one. An astrologer would describe this as someone “in the right line of work”.

B) The House Position of the Sun

If you depend entirely on Sun sign descriptions of yourself, some astrology sources may seem “inaccurate” when describing your career inclinations, for example you might be a Scorpio, described as being into investigation, mysteries, the occult, sex, taboo topics and so on, but you might be in a trade that’s incongruous to that description, say, a kindergarten teacher!


You are so much more than just a Sun sign, but apart from that, often it is the house position of the Sun, not the sign, that gives me more clues about career paths / industries.

For example, Spielberg has his Sun in the 6th house, which typically describes someone who’s quite hands-on and process-oriented. Such people are typically low-key and detail-oriented, often concerned with precision and getting things right (sometimes to the extent of perfectionism). Considering he’s not an actor, but the director/producer, that’s just about right!

C) Planets in the 1st House

The 1st house in a birth chart may affect physical appearance on a superficial level, but going further than that, the 1st house is all about our personal identity. Many people identify strongly with what they do for a living i.e. “I am a digital marketer” or “I am a chef”, and this could be described by planets contributing to their sense of sense in the 1st house of a birth chart.

Spielberg doesn’t have anything in the first house, but the house is ruled by Moon in Scorpio in 5th House, which we saw earlier refers to his creative product, i.e. his movies, and this further emphasises how important his creative identity is to him.

Every individual chart tells its own story, and there are a myriad of ways in which a good astrologer can discern the layers of your self-expression. When you’re in the right line of work, your natural strengths can click into place and deliver worthy results.
