The 7 Lake Day brings Joy

In I Ching Astrology each of the 9 Stars rotate in a seasonal pattern. These rotations are 9 month, 9 years and even 9 days. Whichever Star sits in the central pivotal position by the day, will start to influence the other eight.

Here are my insights regarding today.

The 5 and 6 Stars are on a roll-unstoppable with enthusiasm!

The 9 Fire Star wants to party!

The 7 Lake Star is the centre of attention.

Fame and passion come the 2 Earth Star's way!

Quiet and serious for the 1 Water Star. Similar holds true for the normally vivacious 3 and 4 Stars. Finally, the 8 Mountain Star is the Boss! Do not argue with them today!

Diana, Princess of Wales

Born today in 1961 Diana was driven in life by her frank and passionate 3 Thunder Birth Star. This brings a very insightful and sensitive nature to the surface but also hides the sometimes rash and hasty side of Thunder.

Below the surface, Diana was driven by her 1 Water Inner Star. In I Ching Astrology this can make us intuitive, cool, independent and diplomatic. However, when under pressure the 1 Water Inner Star brings all worries and insecurities to the surface.

Her outward expression was very evident in her charming and easy-going 7 Lake Outer Star. Always polished and perfect in appearance but sometimes calculating and hyper-sensitive.

The Baltimore Bullet is all Water!

Born today in 1985, Michael Phelps has so far bagged a record 16 Olympic medals and is all set to swim away with even more in London in 2012. What does I Ching Astrology reveal about him?

He has the perfectionist and confident 6 Heaven Birth Star in place. This is drawn from the Father Trigram in the I Ching and is a Birth Star that suits leaders in their particular field.

But underneath Phelps has the 1 Water Star both as his Inner Star and his Outer Star. Water is his element in his Olympic sport. Water in the I Ching brings tenacity, seriousness, industrious, patience and hard work to the party. Healthy Water also creates courage and endurance. He has both.

Not enough Fire for Michael

I was looking through all the dates of birth of Michael's siblings and parents today. Given that Michael was a 6 Heaven Birth Star and that originates from the Metal element, I was looking for a Fire Birth Star that was close to him. I could find none.

In I Ching Astrology, each Star has an element. Each element is kept in shape by, or protected by or even held accountable by another element. For Metal it is Fire. This helps Metal from getting too cold, brittle or inflexible - too much and it is overpowering and melts Metal.

Two people keep appearing in the press these past few days who say they did try to give him sound advice. Deepak Chopra and Uri Geller. Both born in 1946 and are the 9 Fire Birth Stars. A pity he did not listen.

Michael Jackson - A bridge too far

Sometimes are Stars are literally in the wrong place at the wrong time. All of our Stars move in 9 year and 9 month cycles. These phases are rather like seasons and in ancient times they were referred to as Houses or during the Emperor's time as Palaces.

2009 saw Michael Jackson's strong 6 Heaven leadership Star in the south west, emerging from dormancy. A brilliant time to plan, but not to initiate, a comeback.

However, June 2009 saw his 6 Heaven Star reside, only for the month, in the stillness and winter position of the North in I Ching Astrology. For all of us, this House is our most vulnerable. It represents hibernation. To try and push yourself hard in this House, especially toward the Fire of fame and touring and performing would be hazardous and very uncomfortable. Tragically it was for him.

Michael Jackson

With the sad news of Michael Jackson's premature death at 50 years of age, what does I Ching Astrology reveal about the enormously talented star?

He had the stylish and strong 6 Heaven Birth Star that is also shared by others who broke with tradition to start new ventures, including: John Lennon, James Dean, Jack Kerouac, Salvador Dali, Rudolph Valentino and George Byron.

He had the tenacious and energetic and secretive 8 Mountain Inner Star.

His explosive style, progressive approach and intense energy was born out of his 3 Thunder Outer Star.

Rest in Peace, Michael.

Paolo Maldini

Born today in 1968, Paolo Maldini was the finest defender in Italian soccer history. His 25 year career that he loyally spent at AC Milan will be hard to emulate.

His electrifying pace, leadership skills and precise tackles are what he is famous for. It actually mirrors his I Ching Astrology profile perfectly.

His determined and persistent 5 T'ai Chi Birth Star gives him the leadership edge-both on and off the field.

His 7 Lake Inner Star the precision in his tackles and his polished performance.

Lastly his 3 Thunder Outer Star gave him his electric pace. Thunder can be intense, explosive and even aggressive.

Happy birthday, Paolo.

The new Speaker

John Bercow survived his first day in office yesterday as the Speaker in the House of Commons. What does his I Ching Astrology profile reveal about his personality and style in dealing with the raucous weekly Question Time?

After all the recent scandal, what the House of Commons needs is stability. John's steady, serving and meticulous 2 Earth Birth Star is perfect.

Under the surface he has the 9 Fire Inner Star which brings, under pressure, an enlightened, sophisticated and honourable side of his personality.

What the MP's will see and hear the most of is his 7 Lake Outer Star. This is often how we act or appear to the world. This is perfect for the job. It helps him to be: flexible, social, expressive, entertaining and polished. Oprah Winfrey, Mozart, Jose Mourinho and Virginia Woolf, all share the same bright profile.

The Influential Wind Day

In I Ching Astrology each day, as well as the month and year, take on the flavour of the Star that is the central, or T'ai Chi position at that time.

Today the central Star is the 4 Wind Star which brings with it change and possibility. If your Birth Star is the 4, then the changes will be more considerable.

It is a lively and exciting day for the 2 Earth and 3 Thunder Stars. Full of opportunity and potential.

However, a much quieter day for the 7 Lake Star and for the usually lively 9 Fire Star.

The 8 Mountain Star is at the top of of their game while all of us need to heed the clarity and power emanating today from the 5 T'ai Chi Star!

For love and romance, the 1 Water Star is mellow and friendly!

Happy Birthday, Slash!

Born today in 1965, Guns N' Roses guitarist Saul Hudson has an I Ching Astrology profile that matches his style. According to friends he was "always in a hurry, zipping around from one thing to another." Hence the nickname Slash.

His 8 Mountain Birth Star is not like this particular aspect at all. The Mountain reveals a very energetic and ambitious side of his nature. But there is a slightly obstinate and stubborn side.

However, his 7 Lake Inner Star is sociable, talkative, nervous and expressive.

His 6 Heaven Outer Star stylish, confident, reliable and full of confidence.Others with his profile include: Liz Hurley, Bjorn Borg, Carlos Santana and Gauguin.
