England's revenge in Zagreb

In their second competitive game under the feisty leadership of new manager Fabio Capello, a 9 Fire Star, England proved their bulldog spirit in a 4-1 thrashing of their Croatian hosts. (No one was more surprised than me!)

Man of the match was hat trick scoring youngster, Theo Walcott, just 19, who as a 2 Earth Star dominated the game.

By the month and year his 2 Earth Star occupies the Northwest House which epitomises: Father, Heaven, accuracy, focus and leadership. He proved that last night.

After months of speculation, Capello also named the skipper, John Terry, also a 2 Earth Star.

In the ancient Chinese System of Transformation (Creation) the element Fire supports Earth. So it’s good to see that their 9 Fire Star coach is supporting three of last night's Earth Stars: Walcott, Ashley Cole and Terry. All have the chance to shine under the new management.

Collider will, in time, yield great insights

Attention: open in a new window. PDF | Print | E-mail

The world's top scientists will fire up the Large Hadron Collider today in the quest for new knowledge about the origins of our universe and endorsement of their current theories.

Finally conceived today, after a long gestation period, at the CERN centre, near Geneva, the Collider is born under the 1 Water Star - a sign of deep intuition, incubation and exploration. This month is also ruled by the Water Star indicating that further experiments will be necessary to yield any significant insights.

Tim Berners Lee

I Ching Astrology runs in cycles of nine years. And 18 years ago, in 1990, Tim Berners Lee launched the first working model of the World Wide Web at CERN.

So, history is in the making again at this centre of scientific excellence.

All change at the top in Japan

Japanese Prime Minister, Yasuo Fukuda, 72 , has just resigned. Born in July 1936 he shares the same 1 Water Star as Nelson Mandela. This is a 1 Water year and a time of upheaval and change for the Water Star as it progresses through the 9 year cycle.

A possible new successor is the current Foreign Minister, Taro Aso who was born in September 1940.

This makes him a 6 Metal Star which in I Ching Astrology represents Father, Heaven and leadership.

This might seem a perfect choice... But timing is always significant, and Aso's Metal Star this year is moving through the astrological equivalent of winter... hardly a propitious time for him.

Canadian PM takes a gamble

News broke on Sunday that Canadian Prime Minister, Stephen Harper, had announced a snap general election for 14 October 2008. He wants a renewed mandate to steer the country through tough economic times.

As a 5 T'ai Chi Star, Harper will always be a natural leader and one to take the helm for any crisis.

His potential opposition will come from Liberal party leader, Stéphane Dion, a 9 Fire Star. These are always charismatic leaders like: Churchill, Clinton or Tito.

In 2008 the 5 T'ai Chi Star is in the South, representing fame and recognition, whereas the 9 Fire Star is in the South East, signalling rapid growth.

However, in 2009, Harpers' Star moves to the North: cold and winter, but Dion's will move to the T'ai Chi centre - depicting change and rebirth.

I see Stéphane Dion leading Canada in 2009.

Congratulations Lewis Hamilton!

Lewis stormed to victory in the Formula 1 Grand Prix in Germany on Sunday after many pundits said his season was “doomed”. His 7 6 6 Stars reveal his accuracy and skill.

Lewis is in the “quiet” 2 House in 2008 moving into the 3 House of success in 2009.

However, Lewis has a "window" in the 9 Fire House from 7 July – 8 August There are three Grands Prix during this period and he has already won two. The third is in Hungary on 3 August... his success and fame will continue!

September's serious challenge for Gordon

Embattled UK premier Gordon Brown is predictably where he should be! As an influential 4 Wood Star he sits in the North East position in 2008. Known as the Mountain in the I Ching, this a quiet but changeable space, where it is easy to feel cut off and isolated. It’s influence peaks later this year between 8 September and 7 October – the time when a serious leadership challenge is most likely. Watch this space!

The Year Ahead: goodbye doom & gloom

The year, so far, has been over-laden with doom and gloom, but there is still great hope. 2008 has at its core the One Water Star, and Water is a symbol of peace... Last century 1918 and 1945 were One Water Star Years - and signalled the end of two world wars.

I will be taking a regular look at the world according to the time-tested principles of 9 Star Ki Astrology.

My 35 years of study of this ancient system have shown me that it can provide accurate guidance according to the flow of Chi in our lives. I look forward to sharing my insights with you.
