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: 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?
