Boho Pisces Drew Barrymore was born on February 22, 1975 with Sun, Venus and Jupiter in the creative, emotional and impressionable sign of Pisces. And she has Moon in Cancer (another water sign) which increases her emotional sensitivity. The combination of Pisces and Cancer also makes her an incurable romantic, and she has been married three times. She explains “I love romance. I’m a sucker for it. I love it so much. It’s pathetic.”
Pisces is also the sign associated with alcohol and drugs, and Drew had substance abuse problems in her teens and had two stints in rehab. (She wrote about her turbulent childhood and teenage years in her autobiography ‘Little Girl Lost’.) Fortunately Drew has Mars in earthy and practical Capricorn, which helped her be disciplined enough to kick drugs and focus on re-building her acting career. It also gives her a sound business brain, and she now has additional careers as a successful director, producer and businesswoman. (Her film production company is called ‘Flower Films’, she’s written four books, and has her own line of fragrance.)
Avant-garde individuals always have Aquarius and/or Uranus feature strongly in their birth chart. And Drew has Mercury in Aquarius and Uranus closely trine her Sun. So she is an innovative thinker and has a bohemian way of expressing herself …
“A few years ago, I bought an old red bicycle with the words ‘Free Spirit’ written across its side. Which is exactly what I felt like when I rode it down the street in a hippie tie-dyed dress.”
A New Way to Give and Receive Astrology Readings … Instantly!
This week I wanted to share some thoughts on Instantgo, a new mobile application that lets you connect with astrologers like me instantly over the phone. The interesting feature of this platform is that it lets people connect with others via phone, questions and also texts. This means that you can continually chat with your astrologer and pay for readings in a simple fashion. Very easy and convenient in today’s messaging world! It is also a new way for astrologers to provide our services, expertise and time, and charge for it without having to go through complex scheduling or Paypal transactions. We can use Instantgo to keep in touch with our clients and friends in a more intelligent and productive manner.
With Instantgo, everything happens in the app, making it super simple for both the astrologer and the client to get their readings intelligently. The app also lets you share pictures, documents and videos so you can use additional support to provide your reading.
There are other aspects of the platform which I find interesting on Instantgo. The platform lets you find a large number of different experts in categories such as astrologers, psychics and tarot readers. You can easily access all of their profiles, see the rates being charged by each user, and get quick information such as their particular expertise and bio. It also makes the interaction more personal on all levels.
Another great functionality is the ability for users to decide to chat privately so they can ask specific questions at ease and open up in greater detail while we work on their natal charts. Confidentialliyy is always important in our relationships with our clients and the system allows for that effectively.
Last but not least, the capacity to speak and connect with so many people in so many places is a different take on knowledge sharing and learning. It is fascinating to now be able to find the exact and precise skills you are looking for, understand how people price their knowledge and time, and immediately connect with them on the platform.
Being able to get an instant astrology reading and connect over the mobile is a pleasant experience which is one of the ways we astrologers will interact with people into the future. Instantgo is one the leaders in this field and is providing innovative solutions towards that end.
American actress Gillian Anderson is best known for her roles in the TV series The Fall and The X-Files. She was born on August 9, 1968 with the Sun, Mercury and Mars all in Leo [another mega-Leo with fiery red hair!]; and her Moon in the avant-garde sign of Aquarius.
Her London home [shown above] is a wonderful mix of dramatic and colourful Leo panache, combined with Aquarian bohemian flair. And it’s filled with ecclectic treasures from exotic far-flung places. People with their Moon in Aquarius often move house many times, and this London townhouse is Gillian’s 13th home [which she decorated herself]. She says “I love buildings and I love homes. It’s the way I get to be creative when I’m not working.”
Film star, fashion icon and humanitarian Audrey Hepburn was born on May 4, 1929 with the Sun and Jupiter in the practical and hard-working sign of Taurus. Audrey starred in 27 films and won an Academy Award but she was no precious, pampered movie star!
Taurus is an earth sign, and Audrey had decidedly earthy interests – including animals, cooking and gardening. She created a beautiful garden at her home in Switzerland, and in 1992 she hosted the acclaimed BBC television series Gardens of the World. She described her bucolic life in the Swiss countryside.
“I love our little town. I love going to the open market twice a week with all the fruit and vegetables and flowers … I have a delightful rose garden, an orchard and jellies to preserve.” So Taurean!
Plus, with Moon in compassionate Pisces and Mars in nurturing Cancer, Audrey also had a strong humanitarian side. She spent the last years of her life working with children as a Goodwill Ambassador for UNICEF in some of the poorest communities in Africa, South America and Asia.
“As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands. One for helping yourself, the other for helping others.”
“I love being by myself, love being outdoors. I love taking a long walk with my dogs and looking at the trees, the flowers and the sky.”
