RuPaul is quite possibly the world’s most famous drag queen, an entrepreneurial pioneer who seemed almost single-handedly to have brought drag culture into the American mainstream. An overnight sensation several decades in the making, RuPaul is an accomplished performer, actor and recording artist, host of “RuPaul’s Drag Race”, a drag competition show on VH1, now in its tenth year, which has won three Primetime Emmys. Acknowledged as the most commercially successful drag queen in history, in 2017 RuPaul was included in Time’s annual list of the 100 most influential people in the world.

OK, so what do I know? Absolutely none of the picks I made in advance for the 2019 Academy Awards, based solely on asteroid placements for the day of the ceremony, won the Oscar. It may be that asteroids are less predictive than descriptive, as I have often suspected.
Then again, I may just suck at prediction (I have often suspected that, too).
Either way, the PNAs for the nominees were stunning in their multiplicity and placement, and as I said at the time, a celestial case for victory could be made for almost any of them, so tapped into the skies were they for the day. And that makes sense – out of hundreds of performances under review, those given the nod should be represented celestially, be they ultimately winners or not. It’s a cosmic honor just to be nominated, yadda yadda yadda.
And I also said that the final determination would depend upon 1) how well their nominated roles fit into their birth charts and 2) how strong their “winning” asteroids, Nike and Victoria, were at birth. So now, with the benefit of hindsight, let’s see how that panned out.
Jussie Smollett is a biracial actor and singer, who came to national attention in the hit Fox drama “Empire”, where he portrays a gay black man caught up in the backstage machinations of the music industry. Smollett is himself gay, and very publically so, coming out on Ellen DeGeneres’ show in 2015. He began his acting career as a child, in such films as “The Mighty Ducks” and “North”, before moving into commercials and guest spots, then returning to a lead role in 2015 with “Empire”. Smollett’s portrayal has received international acclaim as “groundbreaking” for gays of color.
On January 29, 2019, Smollett filed a report with the Chicago Police Department alleging he had been attacked and brutalized by two white men in the street, who hurled fists and both racial and sexual epithets at him, including putting a rope around his neck. According to Smollett, the attackers yelled “This is MAGA country!” as they assaulted him, an apparent reference to Donald Trump’s “Make America Great Again” campaign theme. Smollett claims he fought them off, and was released from the hospital the next morning with only superficial injuries.

When the curtain rings up on the 91st annual Academy Awards in Los Angles on February 24th, there may not be an official host below, but the celestial stage above will be crammed with asteroids representing the nominees, ready and waiting to collect Oscar gold for their performances. A disproportionately large number of Best Picture contenders have good PNA (Personal-Named Asteroids) matches, and a galaxy of mini-stars well reflects their human counterparts vying for Best Actress and Best Actor, lead and supporting.
On the Twelfth Day of Christmas, the POTUS gave to me: one ousted White House Chief of Staff; an ill-advised Syrian pullout; one retiring Defense Secretary; a dissolved Trump charity; one sentenced former “fixer”; Trade Wars with China; a deferred sentence for a former National Security Adviser; five DOJ investigations into his conduct; four dictator cronies; three tanking stock markets; two departing Cabinet Secretaries; and a partial governmental shutdown in a pear tree.
One might think, with asteroid Santa coming to its station on Christmas Day, conjoined Donald Trump’s natal Ascendant, that the holiday haul for the 45th President might be pretty good. But apparently, Santa only has coal left in his magic sack.
