“Hollywood Babylon,” is a book that describes life in that fair city as blissfully rife with scandal and innuendo. Written in the sixties, by Kenneth Angers, the man who first turned film land gossip into an art form, it was followed by a sequel in 1984.
It seems very little has changed over the years and if there were to be an edition number three, it would be a hot seller. All we hear out of Hollywood these days is stars either on drugs, in meltdown, rehab or jail.
The headlines tell it all. Much has been written about pop princess Britney Spears over the years, and she is just one of the many young stars who cannot seem to get their act in order. Spears has had more than her share of publicity, recently being described in our local newspaper, as hitting rock bottom and running around like a bad kid with, ADD.
We could describe 2007 as, “The year of living dangerous,” for Britney which has culminated with the loss of the custody battle for her two children, Sean and Jayden. On October, 3rd 2007 a Los Angeles court awarded full time custody to ex husband, Kevin Federline.
According to internet sources, Britney Spears was born on 2nd December, 1981 at 1.30 am, making her a Sagittarian with the Moon in Aquarius. This is the classic artist archetype combination and from an early age she embodied passion to express life beyond the five senses.
As a youngster, she was a talented gymnast, performing in local church dance reviews before being picked up for a spot on Disney’s, “The New Mickey Mouse Club.” The natal chart of Britney Spears is a very curious blend. We could say that it has all the element of, ”Alice in Wonderland, through the looking glass.”
Britney Spears Horoscope
On one hand, in Britney Spears’ Horoscope, we have the Sagittarius/Aquarius combination which is idealistic, romantic and extremely expressive and in a very dramatic way, adds to the illusion of being important. On the other hand, we have Venus, planet of harmony and love in Capricorn and Mars planet of will-power and energy in Virgo, both very practical earth signs. With an element of practicality, we could be fooled into thinking that she would eventually get her life in order however, when we look at the patterns that the planets make on the 90 degree dial and add Mars/Neptune to the mix, combined with the very powerful Node/Venus/Pluto, a very different picture emerges.
Node/Venus/Pluto in the natal chart is one of the indicators of fame and the ability to become popular with the public. One of the manifestations is fanatical love and the desire for sensual pleasure. This in itself can be a good aspect, but when combined with Mars/Neptune, a serious weakness may occur. When Mars/Neptune join together and form an aspect in the natal chart it is sometimes difficult for one to assert ones self without causing turmoil. Needs are considerable, but when not met, can lead to the fear of emotional or material losses, prompting the individual to act in conflict with aggressive feelings. Unfortunately on the negative side of Mars/Neptune according to “The Combination of Stellar Influences,” by Ebertin one can be subject to self-destroying forces such as drugs or alcohol and it has been well documented that M/s Spears has been in and out of rehab. It is like a double edged sword as the positive side is very enlightening and spiritually uplifting.
Astrologically, right at this moment Spears is facing some of her biggest hurdles. On the quad dial by Solar Arc, we see that Mars has come to Saturn, meaning that there are extreme difficulties to over come, tests of strength and separation. We also see that Saturn is now mid-point, Moon/Chiron and Sun/Saturn adding to her emotional suffering. On the September Ingress Mars/Pluto is across the dial to her natal Moon indicating great changes, emotional upheaval, angry outbursts and even injuries so she would be well advised to stay around those who love and care for her now she has lost the children. In some ways it could be a blessing in helping her get back on track as Sagittarians need to have freedom in relationships for them to work and maybe deep down she senses the children are better in a stable environment. Adding to her woes is the fact that she has also been charged over a hit-and-run incident. Charges include driving without a valid licence and allegedly crashing into a parked car last August.
Even though things look pretty glum this talented little lady does have a glimmer of hope with the Jupiter/Node midpoint her natal Sun on the Libra Ingress and this does give generous amounts of protection. It would be a good time to get all aspects of her life back on track as it is a shame to waste such talent. We all know it is a fine line that we tread on the dark side of life so let’s hope that Britney’s continual appetite for excess is now curbed and she won’t be continually haunted by the words of her own song, “Oops!…….. I did it again.”
