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.

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 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.
