Click here to see bin Laden's Sun Sign and other information about his birth horoscope.

The image on The Tower card XVI of the Tarot is eerily similar to the shocking image the world saw on live television October 11, 2001 - a tower in flames and people falling to the ground.

Astrology Article: Astrology in the Christian Bible
by Michael Star

Some Christians have been taught that the practice of Astrology is akin to the ancient pagan practice of peering into the entrails of disemboweled fowl or sheep to see signs of the future. Those who condemn Astrology seem to have missed the very clear statement about reading "signs" in the heavens which appears on the first page of their Bible. Michael explains the real meaning of the word "stars" as used in the Bible, and how "the Star of Bethlehem" was likely an actual astrological "conjunction" of two giant planets in the Sign of Pisces - which was interpreted by some wise astrologers (the Magi) as a "sign" of the birth of the Hebrew Messiah who came to be called Jesus Christ. See more signs of Astrology in the Christian Bible when you read Michael's commentary.

Celebrity Horoscope: Monica Lewinsky's Karma Horoscope
by Michael Star

See for yourself what leads Monica to make the choices that lead to the consequences she experiences.

Now you can check for yourself how well it works to accurately analyze an existing or past romantic relationship - or predict a potential one. Given the nature of the Clinton-Lewinsky relationship, you may find some unintentional "double meanings" in the reading that are rather amusing. Some would have been eerily prophetic if the reading had been done before the revelation of the secret affair.

Horoscope Humor: "Horrorscope" for 1998
by Donna Lypchuk and John McKay-Clements

The Old Doom-sayer's 1998 predictions for all 12 Signs - not a pretty picture. Based on ancient astrologogy, scathingly satirized and skewed into evil-eyed entertainment. A pernicious parody of the old school of "malefic" planetary prognostication, where stiffs such as Nasty Damn-us (Nostradamus) studied star-gazing and scare tactics. Sometimes we astrologers get too serious, so this satire by Canadian columnist Donna Lypchuk and Toronto astrologer John McKay-Clements lets us lighten up with a little "doom-and-gloom" in this fractured forecast. Beware! No Sign is spared a skewering here. Read at your own risk.

Astrology: The Mating Rating - Relationship Potential scored on 7 Factors
by Michael Star

The "Mating Rating" is Michael Star's unique invention, a detailed astrological analysis of an existing or potential relationship. It reports on seven separate Factors, scoring them as percentages (10%-99%) of the maximum potential: Initial Infatuation, Friendship, Rapport/Communication, Loyalty/Longevity, Fate/Karma, Difficulty/Differences, and Physical/Sexual.

This highly complex software is used to produce the Mating Rating page in Michael's "Cupid Compatibility Horoscope" and to compare and rank potential matches for friendship and/or romance in "The Star Mates Experiment". Moving far beyond mere "Sun Sign" compatibility, the Mating Rating software analyzes hundreds of separate astrological factors in comparing two person's birth horoscopes and how each Planet is placed in relation to the other's. Some of the factors analyzed include: the Ascendant, Midheaven, Moon's Nodes, Sun/Moon Midpoint, and aspects (and their orbs) between Planets and these points, plus the position of each person's Planets in the other person's horoscope Houses.

An interesting observation, after doing hundreds of Mating Rating comparisons, is that the Sun Sign compatibility between two partners is often of minor importance when many other positive factors indicate a high potential for overall compatibility. Some of the best-rated relationships happen to have the partner's Suns in Signs which are traditionally reported as the most difficult combinations, e.g. Aries/Cancer, Taurus/Leo, etc. When the partner's Suns are in Signs which are "square" (at a 90-degree angle) to each other, compromises are required to adjust to very different basic natures and goals, but this does not mean it is hopeless by any means - as those overly simplistic Sun Sign (or "star sign") compatibility charts might lead you to assume. (In relationships, the aspects between each partner's Moon and Venus to the other's Planets can be more influential than apects between their Suns, and a Sun/Moon conjunction is one of the best indicators of a happy marriage or fine friendship.)

Horoscope Humor:

The 1998 "Horrorscope"

Predictions for all 12 Signs - not a pretty picture. Based on ancient astrologogy, scathingly satirized and skewed into evil-eyed entertainment. A pernicious parody of the old school of "malefic" planetary prognostication, where stiffs such as Nasty Damn-us studied star-gazing and scare tactics. Sometimes we astrologers get too serious, so this satire by Canadian columnist Donna Lypchuk and Toronto astrologer John McKay-Clements lets us lighten up with a little doom and gloom in this fractured forecast.
