Celebrity Big Brother 2018 was off to a dramatic start with drag queen, Courtney Act, flashing the audience; politician, Ann Widdicombe, stirring up tension; and Ginuwine and Dapper Laughs bringing lots of controversy. But if you’re a Celebrity Big Brother fan, there’s only one question on your mind: who’s going home?

After newsreader, India Willoughby, journalist Rachel Johnson, and detective, Maggie Oliver were the first three to be evicted, who will win? Let’s see if the stars can shed some light…


Who will win CBB 2018?


With so many contestants to keep track of, I’ve narrowed down the top three predictions based on their astrological birth chart, but other contestants like quiet yet kind Virgo, Amanda Barrie, cheeky Andrew Brady, and sensitive Pisces, Jess Impiazzi, made it a close call!

3rd Place Prediction

Former conservative MP, Anne Widdicombe, has already stirred up trouble in the house after some blunt comments about fellow housemate Ashley James being “too sensitive”. This is surprising considering Ann’s Sun is exactly conjunct Neptune, which would usually make her very sensitive herself, she obviously hides it well!

Ex-contestant, Maggie Oliver, described Widdicombe as having “little sympathy for those in need”, again, something completely contrary to someone with such a strong Neptunian influence, and perhaps this is something she refuses to let out in herself, thus condemning it in other people.

With Chiron, the wounded healer, conjunct her Mercury, the way that she communicates will be tainted with her own mental scars, and so this might explain her usual lack of patience for others.

However, she has had her moments and seems to be a firm favourite with the public, who perhaps admire her ability to speak her mind, no matter who gets offended, and it seems she has a good shot at making the top three.

2nd Place Prediction

Former Boyzone member Shane Lynch, while not the most outgoing of the bunch, has won over the house with his grown-up demeanor and sensitive insights over the life and death of his fellow Boyzone bandmate, Steven Gately.
This is no surprise to an astrologer, as Lynch’s Sun is in Cancer – one of the most sensitive signs – plus Venus is joined to his Sun, making him someone who cares deeply about other people, as well as balance, harmony and good times. Lynch spoke of his previous struggles with alcohol, and has been trying to do Dry January while in the house. His maturity could come from his Sun squaring Pluto, meaning he has had to overcome some serious life struggles, causing him to grow up and get real. It’s this down-to-earth sensitivity that could win him a place in the top three.



1st Place Prediction

Drag queen Courtney Act is my prediction for the CBB crown, and it’s little wonder why with her quirky outspoken Aquarius Sun and Mercury. Aquarius types tend to stand out and like to be different, something viewers will attest to after her dramatic entrance! And with Mercury conjunct her Sun, Courtney will have no problem expressing herself, which always goes down well with the audience. Her background in showbiz and reality TV give her a bit of a head start, and no doubt her outgoing and precocious nature will win her plenty of laughs, as well as the CBB crown.



The Celebrity Big Brother 2018 finale will take place on 2nd February – so check back to see if my predictions were right!

Ask an Astrologer: Will Jamie & Louise Redknapp Get Back Together?

Today I will talk to you about Jamie and Louise Redknapp and what the stars hold in store for them!


What’s their story?

Singer, Louise Redknapp and ex-England football player, Jamie Redknapp had it seemingly all together, but all is not quite as it seems, as in July, Louise was reported to have left the family home after 19 years with Jamie and two sons together.
Now the tabloids are circulating rumours of a possible reunion – will they get back together? Let’s see if the planets can give us a clue…


The Planetary Lowdown…


Looking at the pairs’ natal charts, it seems that Louise and Jamie Redknapp should get on well. Both water signs (Scorpio and Cancer), they share the same sensitive nature and strong need to trust a partner.
With Jamie’s Sun in a strong trine to Louise’s Mars, the couple should also have a fiery physical attraction and plenty of vitality, but with their Moons opposing each other, there might be some differences in perception that can cause deep upset if not communicated and resolved.
Since it appears that Louise Redknapp did the leaving, let’s take a look at her astrological transits over this time.


Ooooohwee, has Louise Redknapp been having an astrologically hectic year!
Since competing in Strictly Come Dancing in December last year, Louise has had Jupiter opposite her Saturn, leading her to question the very foundations of her life structure – now that sounds about right!
Not only this, but Jupiter has been squaring her Saturn too, egging on this frustration and encouraging her to make some big decisions on the direction of her life.

As a Scorpio, Louise will be feeling the effects of her ruling planet, Pluto, even more, and she will have been fighting this tug between the safety and comfort of the old and the exciting potential of the new. Pluto transits drive us to transform our lives, even if that means leaving something we love behind.
So, in July of this year, it appears that Louise Redknapp did just that! Driven by this Plutonic desire for change, Louise left her husband and two boys and moved into her own place. This complete change is actually very representative of the planet, Uranus, and not surprisingly, Louise has had plenty of Uranian aspects during this time.

Uranus pushing for change

Uranus has been directly opposite Louise’s natal Uranus from May to October 2017, and this would have caused her to become restless and anxious to take a new path and break free of her current role as wife and mother.
Interestingly, Louise was quoted in The Mirror as saying: “Every mum knows there is no better job in the world than having a family but you do lose a sense of you, and I definitely lost a sense of myself” – this is a perfect example of the energy that Uranus represents – a desire to be an individual.
But as we all know, breakups don’t just come out of nowhere (well, most of the time we hope!), so what was it exactly that triggered these two to throw in the towel?

What was the final straw?

Well, the tabloids can’t tell us much, it seems that Louise and Jamie Redknapp were the gold standard for happy celeb couples, but if we look at the planets, we can see that Louise had Uranus conjunct her Chiron, the wounded healer, meaning that this urge to live a new life is directly related to her own deepest issues that need to be healed.
With a tough Mars square Pluto happening around the time Louise moved out, this was probably the catalyst for her to take action. She may have felt an incredible urge to do something about these growing feelings of discontent, and taken a huge action that has changed her whole family’s lives.



So, will they get back together?

The question on everybody’s lips right now is – will they get back together?
Well, this all depends on whether or not Louise fulfils this part of her soul contract. If she can heal the parts of herself that need healing and discover something new about herself that allows her to go back to her old life with a new perspective, then the couple should have bright prospects.
One important thing to remember is that many of these aspects are short to mid term and will eventually fade away, and new ones will be formed. One positive sign, is a nice trine between Neptune and Louise’s Venus which will last until February of next year. This will encourage positive transformations in her relationships and self-worth, as well as magnifying her compassion when relating to others.

Of course, sometimes we ignore the wisdom given to us from the stars, but I strongly suspect that this tale of celebrity romance woe will have a happy ending.

So…more importantly, what do YOU think about this celebrity couple’s future? Please let me have your lovely comments below! Looking forward to reading them!

Ask an Astrologer: Will Wayne & Colleen Rooney Get Back Together?


What’s the story with footballers and their wives recently? As you may know, there’s trouble in paradise with not only Jamie and Louise Redknapp, but Wayne and Colleen Rooney too! So, if you’ve been dying for someone to dish the dirt on what’s really happening, maybe the planets could fill us in…


What’s their story?


Former England football captain, Wayne Rooney and his wife Colleen, have had a bumpy relationship. From getting engaged at just 17, to cheating scandals and most recently, a drink driving conviction, complete with another woman in tow, you’d think that Wayne Rooney would be ready to settle down and give his pregnant wife a break?!

With so many break ups and make ups, it’s hard to tell exactly what will happen with Wayne and Colleen Rooney’s relationship, so instead of piecing together tabloid snippets – let’s ask the stars!



The planetary lowdown:




As a Scorpio with Pluto conjunct his Sun, Wayne is no doubt deep and secretive by nature, yet Colleen, as an Aries, is probably very forthright and open. Their differences are perhaps what attracted them, as well as what drove them apart.

This difference is enhanced by Wayne’s Sun opposite Colleen’s Venus, in opposing signs too – Scorpio and Taurus, which would create a magnetic attraction between the two, but as much as opposites attract, at times they can repel too.

This is a couple who have trust issues, and with Wayne’s Mars on Colleen’s Neptune, certain ego-driven actions can bring in confusion, deceit and mistrust – like cheating perhaps?

However, the couple do have a lot of nice trines and sextiles, which means that there are a great many opportunities for them if they can learn to grow together and not take each other for granted.

With Wayne’s Moon square Colleen’s Pluto, domestic problems can arise from this complicated connection, and Colleen will no doubt be forced to transform, whether that’s with or without Wayne, we’re yet to see!




Since the split has happened over Wayne Rooney’s most recent scandal in September, where he was pulled over for drink driving with another woman on his arm, let’s take a look at his transits to see what drove him to such disgrace.


Rebellion and unconscious drives


So, long term, Wayne has had two quite disruptive transits going on: Uranus opposing his Sun has no doubt encouraged feelings of rebellion against the status quo – his family home. Feelings towards his own father, or about the father he has become will have been brought to the surface for him to face – whether healthily or not.

The other long-term aspect, Chiron opposing his Mars, if not properly addressed (and it certainly looks like it hasn’t been!) will have brought many challenges in the shape of unconscious drives. If he doesn’t learn to tame these drives, he could lose control over himself, and give in to a desire to act out and be “in charge”.


What triggered the fallout?


On the day Wayne Rooney was pulled over, September 1st, the Moon made a very short-term aspect to Pluto – Wayne’s ruling planet.

This would have brought unconscious emotions to the surface over the significant females in his life – namely, Colleen, which may have led him astray, not only out of his marriage vows, but at three times over the legal drink driving limit, also out of the law.

All of this adds to Wayne’s dangerous Plutonic/Scorpionic energy, and as mentioned previously, with Pluto conjunct his Sun, this is very much a part of who he is. However, Pluto can be a very positive planet, if the person has the motive to transform.


So, will they get back together?


This isn’t the first time Wayne has been caught cheating. In 2009 he was reported to have slept with two prostitutes, again, while Coleen was pregnant, and against most people’s judgement, she gave him another chance.

Already, we’re seeing signs of a reunion, just a couple of months later, so it’s more than likely that the Rooneys will survive to see another day – their astrological chemistry seems to suggest so. Let’s just hope that Wayne can learn to transform that Plutonic darkness, as I suspect we haven’t seen the last of his antics!

What do you all think? Please let me have your lovely comments below! Looking forward to reading them!

Ask an Astrologer: Who Will Win Strictly Come Dancing?


The final of the U.K.’s favourite TV show, Strictly Come Dancing, is coming up soon on 16th December and I’m sure you’re all desperate to know who’s going to win! With a little help from the planets, perhaps we can predict who will be the winner, and who will be going home empty handed.


The contestants in order of elimination:

Of course, the stars can’t tell us everything, they are, after all, a symbolic language which can mean more than one thing, but astrology can tell us something about how the contestant is feeling and what challenges they may face during the competition – the only thing astrology can’t tell us, is how that person will react!

So, based on this, let’s take a look at what might come up for the Strictly Come Dancing contestants, so we can predict who might be leaving and who could be going home with the trophy.

From last place to first:

Mollie King

The Saturdays singer is lagging behind the other contestants, and apart from the dancing, it’s easy to see why from her birth chart.

A Gemini with her Mercury, Mars and Lilith in Cancer, Mollie is quite the girl next door. This collection of planets in Cancer would explain her soft approach to the competition, and despite her celebrity status, she’s probably quite a shy girl who loves her home comforts, so she may not feel as at ease within the competition as some of the other contestants.

Gemma Atkinson

While Gemma has wowed the audience on numerous occasions, she’s certainly not at the top yet, and according to her current transits, she might not ever get there.

Gemma currently has Saturn conjunct her Sun, so she may hold herself back at times and place restrictions on herself that are only her own doing.

In a competition like Strictly, it’s important to give it your all and put yourself out there fully, and if Gemma can’t do this, she may be going home earlier than she’d like.

Joe McFadden

Joe McFadden is one of the public’s favourites for his cheery and fun approach to dancing and this attitude is seen in his birth chart, where he has a stellium in Libra which is conjunct his Midheaven, representing the career.

Librans are positive, people-loving folk who try hard to please others – Joe’s enthusiasm and good nature comes out in his dancing every time, making him a possibility for the Strictly crown.

However, Joe currently has Saturn opposite his natal Mars which could start slowing him down and causing physical setbacks. He’ll need to grit his teeth and carry on, even if the results are not quite what he hoped for if he’s to continue on to the final three.

Alexandra Burke

Despite her impressive scores, Alexandra Burke recently experienced her second time in the bottom two in two weeks. Is there trouble in Strictly paradise?

Alexandra and her Strictly partner, Gorka Marquez, have been arguing on the show and the heat is clearly getting to the pair. This could be due to Alexandra currently experiencing her ‘Saturn Return’, a huge and often painful period of change that happens around the age 28-30.

Right now, Alexandra also has Pluto opposing her natal Venus, the planet of relationships, so she’ll be experiencing issues of control, moodiness and upheaval with the people closest to her – i.e. her Strictly dance partner!

It remains to be seen how Miss Burke deals with all this negative energy, but it can’t be a good sign for the Strictly crown…

Debbie McGee

At 59 years old, Debbie McGee would be the oldest winner in the history of Strictly Come Dancing, but you can’t tell that from her exquisite dancing!

But not only is she a cracking dancer, but Debbie is also currently experiencing some lovely long-term trines with creative Neptune to her Midheaven and Jupiter.

The Midheaven represents the career, and Jupiter is the planet of good fortune and luck, so this seems to be saying that the lovely Debbie is in for some exciting creative change in her career – winning the Strictly crown perhaps?
