'I..... saw in huge headlines that an atrocious, senseless murder had been committed. I almost fainted when I saw the picture of Babe and of a fellow he had introduced me to as 'his best friend.'They had been accused of murdering a young boy. I was sure that some mistake.... To connect my friend with such a crime was just ridiculous, he was the last person in the world we would suspect capable of such a thing. Though we called him 'Babe' his full name was Nathan Leopold, Jr. and his friend was Richard Loeb'
(students Leopold & Loeb tried to commit 'the perfect crime' depicted in Hitchcock's Rope

Saturn – The Senior Accountant up from the bowels of the organisation, the Department of Scorpio was dressed in a traditional suit cut from an expensive cloth. Traditionally known
for being dour and craggy but here in Scorpio he had a roguish glint in his eye. He may be holding on to a secret that only he knows and which seems to give him immense
pleasure. Saturn is the elder statesman of the company and also it’s longest serving employee. He rose to the top slowly, diligently working his way up but is now a loyal
and valued member of the firm. He knows the ‘nuts and bolts’ of the company
and is often called in when things get too out of hand or when the company has over-reached or becomes over-stretched. Saturn is called in to reset
the boundaries and to impose the necessary limits. When Saturn enters the room everyone
expects to hear the dreaded words ‘austerity’ ‘restrict’ and ‘necessary’. Every
one is slightly twitchy and trawling back through their minds to check whether they may well be hauled over the coals or called to account. This month, Saturn is called in again, this time to serve a restraining order on the
collective-minded Sun and Mercury, who are both in accordance saying ‘let
everyone benefit from the spoils, be even handed and let us share the profits equally’. ‘Now, now’ chastens Saturn, we all love the sentiment but very soon the coffers will dry up
and we could have a mutiny on hands’. Saturn also scowls at the drama queen
La Luna Leo, whose does not seem to be concentrating on the job at all. In fact, she is acting like it is her divine right to submit expenses for her extra holidays, money for pampering and for various
extravagant social events. Saturn is obliged to step in and cut the
budget completely and had his eye on the door waiting for La Luna's more restrained, trimmer replacement to appear. Motto: Be responsible and be cautious.
Uranus – Head of Research & Development up from the Aries research facility was dressed in a bright red boiler suit. Always surprising,
outlandish and odd, he was unmistakably even more brash, youthful and pioneering and
appeared to be on the brink of a breakthrough and quite unable to contain his
excitement. He appeared frustrated to be called in to such a meeting when there is
so much excitement going on elsewhere. His job was to provide back up
and bring in further new ideas. He was expected to interject flashes of innovation and bright, exciting news of the latest developments. 'Let's think of a new way
around this old problems’, lets think outside the box, go where we have never
previously dared. Motto: Be brave and be edgy.
Jupiter – Head of Sales and Marketing, from Gemini/Gemini, is dressed in a ‘bang on trend’ clothes and ready to be very direct.
Usually one for wild gesticulations and big gestures but for a while seemed distracted by a torrent of emails, texts and phone calls. His attention is scattered and hardly focused on the job in hand which looks like a bit of a clean-up operation. None the less, much like
his buddy of the moment, Uranus, he had been called in to provide support by bringing tales of
new and exciting horizons within touching distance. Motto: Be sharp and be informed.

'I have always idolised eccentric people'
|Actor Jack Lemmon has Sun in Aquarius/Moon in Leo & Saturn in Scorpio
'It's hard enough to write a good drama, it's much harder to write a good comedy and it's hardest of all to write a drama with comedy. Which is what life is.'
|Singer James Brown has Uranus in Aries/Leo Moon
'The one thing that can solve most of our problems is dancing'
The Ego orientated Leo Full Moon and the Everyman Sun in Aquarius does point towards issues of flagrant self interest versus universal charity that we could be faced with in spades in the coming days.
We could also feel an inrush of faith and hope as a result of the Jupiter effect, or experience a sizzling sense of breakthrough with the
Uranus effect, and obviously the balancing, doubting, cautious voice, warning us against over
reaching will come with the Saturn effect. A mixture of boundless ideas and hope with the
tinge of cautious realism well actually that may be a great cocktail, let's have a double. There does appear to be quite a bit more
emphasis on the expansive, illuminating and experimental right now, so lets go with our ideas,
give them room and air to breathe, lets dare to dream and try the what ifs and why
nots and embrace the novel and the new. Have little fear because Saturn will restrain our
more 'pie in the sky ideas' whilst providing practical support for the more
workable ones. Looks like a 'win/win' put that way. However, it is also true that many people will either unconsciously or wittingly
pass through this week with little or no noticeable change in their day to day
lives. Daily life and it’s rituals will ebb and flow as per usual, both inner
and outer events could seamlessly blur into our usual repetitive routines.
Hopefully, a significant number of us will register the alterations and will be
affected by, the shifting currents of change mirrored in the skies. Maybe we can capitalize on the changes, tack favourably with the trade winds, surf on that jet
streams, if only in our minds and introduce the changes or at least the costume changes.

|Actor Oliver Reed has Sun in Aquarius/Moon in Leo
Known for his 'excessive binge bouts, macho image and bellicose demeanour he went for a combination, drinking 106 pints of beer on a two-day bender, during an arm-wrestling competition in Guernsey.
We will have gathered more energy to forge ahead but then again so will everyone else around us. The need to respect and listen to what others have to say may just save us and those around us, an exhausting, draining and needless confrontation.
Full Moons are a time of high tides and surging seas as we have seen quite literally.(Taurus full Moon - Shelter From Hurricane Sandy). They can also be a time of dazzling insights, brave ideas and optimism. We want to surge forward with our dreams and visions. Now we also want to be brave, informed, clever and a tad cautious. We really needed that Leo Full Moon to have cast light to some darker corners of our life and like a follow-spot shine the blessings of the universe on our path. Maybe we all will not have the idea of taking centre stage. Ok, so some of us can all also feel a bit like we are stumbling around in the dark, a little on the lost side for a while, relying only on instinct and yes, just howling at the moon occasionally.
