a girls best fiend?

The last few days have seen Venus making aspects to Saturn, Uranus, and - most recently - Pluto. My prediction, and I do make them every so often, was that we would see prominent women in the news.

And sure enough, Naomi Campbell, Mia Farrow, and now Campbell’s former agent, Carole White, have been making headlines, not in the entertainment world, but in a war crimes court. The three women have slightly different versions of the same story, which centers on events at a dinner party hosted by Nelson Mandela in 1997.

The upshot of it is that former Liberian President Charles Taylor is alleged to have given Campbell “blood diamonds” as a gift. Proof that he gave her the diamonds is apparently crucial in his trial for crimes against humanity... something of a head-scratcher in itself, in that a man that is accused of insighting the rape and murder of 100,000 people ought to have left a more obvious trail than one that needs to be substantiated by celebrities. Still, blood diamonds are bad business, and they would link Taylor to much more than flirting with a supermodel.
Campbell appears to be dodging the full story out of fear for her life, while Farrow is going full-court with her version. With Venus in her home sign of Libra, odds are that the women will be okay.

In our personal relationships, the last few days of Venusian aspects have come at the time of the new moon. Tensions may be running high, but this is an excellent time for course-correction and setting intentions for the future.
