Happy birthday to Steven Frayne (aka Dynamo the magician)

Happy birthday to Steven Frayne (aka Dynamo the magician), who’s from Bradford, West Yorkshire (UK).

Some interesting things about Dynamo’s natal chart are his strong 5th house of entertainment and creative expressions, containing his Moon (which trines his Asc), Mercury, Venus and SN. Both his MC and Asc are ruled by Mercury, located in his 5th house and his 5th house is ruled by Saturn, which is located in his 3rd with Jupiter in Scorpio. This is a classic example of a repetition of themes in a chart, this time pointing to a love of delivering faceted information in a fun and captivating way.

Also presented in his Placidus chart is his Sun-Neptune conjunction his 4th house, bringing to mind his natural proclivity for illusion and mystery. Mars, in its joy in his 6th house of work, rules both his 8th and 3rd houses, further supporting these themes.

There are indications in Steven’s natal chart that suggests he may experience some level of discomfort when details close to his personal life appear in the public eye, despite his fame, which is evident from all of his planets residing in the Northern hemisphere of his chart. This means he may be most comfortable remaining private and may even be seen as an intensely private person to those who know him best. Still, a well-known public image can become increasingly likely when there are planets forming major aspects to the MC and here, Steven has his Uranus, which is his 6th house ruler, opposing his MC. Uranus rules his 6th house of work while forming a partile sextile to Mars in Aquarius, also in his 6th. This is a signature to both his unusual and off-beat profession and his independent streak, which he demonstrated in the launching of his own production company, Inner Circle Films in 2016, also very typical of a strong 5th house.

Unfortunately, Steven Frayne was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease when he was 17 years old, not long after Neptune moved into his 6th house by transit and was accompanied by Uranus, bringing forward a theme of weakened immunity, a potential that is signified by his Sun-Neptune conjunction in his 4th house, squaring his Ascendant in Virgo and his Mars-Saturn square ruling his 6th, 8th and 3rd houses. Virgo and the 6th house are classic significators of nutrition and digestive health and Mars afflictions further denote potentialities for physical difficulties with the digestive tract and irritation and inflammation.

Dynamo began his career as a magician after moving to London in 2004, while transformative Pluto was transiting his 4th house of home and Neptune still transited his 6th house, that year exactly trining his MC at 13°23′ Gemini. This highlights his skill as a master of illusion, with an easy flow of planetary energy into the public eye with his career and public image. Not only was it also the year of his Uranus square, a 6th house co-ruler, but Jupiter was transiting his 2nd house too, pertaining to the expansion and exploration of talents and personal worth. Brilliant!

The New Moon Total Solar Eclipse ~ 14th December 2020

There’s a New Moon Total Eclipse in Sagittarius tomorrow, 14th December, at 16:17 in the UK.

The New Moon tomorrow will be in Sagittarius at 23°, conjoining Mercury on the Moon’s South Node (also both in Sagittarius) whilst trining Mars in Aries. So there’s some fire energy here! Yes, even though Jupiter, the ruler of Sagittarius is still in Capricorn, flanked closely by both Saturn and Pluto, we do have some fire working-out within these trines of the New Moon. I feel that Jupiter’s position in late Capricorn in-between these two heavy planets is perfectly symbolic of the position we find ourselves in at the moment, as a nation (and globally). We are nearing the end of one of the heaviest, most transformational years we have had for a long time in which many of our freedoms have been thwarted, much like some of Jupiter’s free and fiery energy may be thwarted during the time he finds himself sandwiched amidst this configuration of planets. Jupiter here represents us and our personal freedom to explore the world and our surroundings and our sense of an ending to this adversity can be represented by Jupiter’s onward movement out of Capricorn and into an air sign; Jupiter will be strengthened via triplicity ruler in Aquarius here.

Therefore, as the ruler of our New Moon Total Solar Eclipse is in a somewhat frustrated position, looking forward to an end to all this, which will no doubt be marked by a series of perfectly-timed conjunctions with Saturn in Aquarius, we have a good dose of fire energy to feed our restlessness and creative endeavours as we lie in wait for the world to get back to ‘normal’. That fire energy is in the shape of a New Moon with a detriment Mercury.
