She also had a striking, electrifying (Uranus) appearance and Venus affects one’s physical beauty and fashion.

In the News: The G-20 economic summit kicks off today in Cannes, France, bringing together leaders from around the world, including President Obama from the U.S. and President Sarkozy of France. Interestingly, Venus rules money and finance, and Mercury governs meetings, and both are now newly deposited in Sagittarius, a sign associated with foreign travel and international dealings. Too, with Venus and Mercury both trine to brilliant Uranus, and the Moon in clear-thinking, strategizing Aquarius, perhaps some forward-thinking progress will be made on world economic issues. We can at least hope, that this will be the case. Of course, regarding our own personal money management, we may also want to institute some new moves or strategies today. Maybe also ferret out new ways to make money.

Entertainment News: Simon Cowell announced on the X-Factor last night that the program had been picked up for another season, much to his delight, especially since the show is, reportedly, his own brainchild. When the X-Factor debuted in the U.S. on Sept. 21st, adventurous Mars was at 2 degrees of entertainment Leo and exactly trine to Uranus in Aries, an excellent influence for a show trying to discover very original (Uranus) talent (Leo). Also, Simon’s announcement last night came with Mercury (rules news and announcements) and Venus (governs artists and performers) in Sagittarius and both exactly trining Uranus once again. Also, with both of these planets creating a very propitious grand trine with Mars and Uranus in the natal X-Factor horoscope. As an astrologer, it is always so fascinating to see how the cycles play out and to watch things come full circle.

Do you watch the X-Factor? Do you have a favorite artist on the show? I think Drew is my favorite, although all the performers are extremely talented. It would be fun to know all of their birth times and take a look at each of their natal horoscopes. I would also like to see L.A. Reid‘s chart, he is so dynamic and cool. I love watching his physical expressions on the show when he really gets immersed in the performances.

Enjoy your Thursday!
