Women hating women, Beyonce, Goddesses, birth

Having a baby isn’t a miracle and doesn’t make you a goddess

Oh God, there was nothing more unsexy than disrobing on set when I had a seven-month belly protruding out.”

That was Katherine Heigl describing her experience shooting a scene from her new television show “Doubt” while she was very pregnant. “At one point,” she recalls, “I’m coming out of the bathroom wrapped in a towel, and we had a teasing moment, and then I dropped it. And I just couldn’t help myself — I burst out laughing.”

Which is probably how most people would have reacted to Beyoncé’s routine at Sunday night’s Grammy Awards — if she weren’t Beyoncé. As Heigl notes, “I know that pregnancy is beautiful in so many ways, but it’s sort of more beautiful between you and your husband, who has to think you’re beautiful.” Well, Beyoncé has never known when to draw the line between what she should share with her husband and what she should share with an audience — see her chair-straddling, tush-wiggling routine from 2014, for instance. But there was another message from her endless Virgin Mary/Sun Goddess routine: Pregnancy is sexy. Motherhood is divine.

Beyoncé’s performance was introduced by her own mother, who seemed appropriately proud. But what happened after that was some kind of pagan fertility worship ceremony. Why is it that in an era where women are constantly insisting that they should not be defined by their traditional, biological roles we have fetishized motherhood to such an extent?

Adele’s words at the Grammys about motherhood weren’t as glamorous as Beyoncé’s but they were similarly self-indulgent. “In my pregnancy and through becoming a mother I lost a lot of myself. And I’ve struggled, and I still do struggle being a mom. It’s really hard. But tonight winning this kind of feels full-circle and like a bit of me has come back to myself.”

There are reports that Adele struggled with postpartum depression after giving birth, but the idea that a woman who is known to millions by only her first name has “lost” herself by becoming a mother seems a little far-fetched. When most mothers say this, they mean that they have had to scale back their professional life or that they spend their days at home changing diapers. But Adele is presumably waxing philosophical here and wants to tell us motherhood is sooooo hard. Oh, please.

Don’t get me wrong. There are people for whom motherhood is hard. There are mothers out there whose children suffer from chronic health problems. There are mothers whose children have died.

There are mothers who are struggling to get by — and I don’t mean struggling to juggle the demands of marriage and family and careers. I mean there are mothers who have trouble making ends meet and have no husbands or extended families on whom they can depend. There are mothers who foster or adopt children who have previously been mistreated or neglected.

But these are not the mothers who give speeches about how they are lost. They don’t write blog posts about the juggle. They may complain, but it’s not about how hard it is to be a mother in some abstract way. It’s about how hard yesterday was.

Our cultural imperative to elevate motherhood to both the most important thing in the world and the hardest thing in the world is getting out of control. A pregnant woman recently wrote into Slate’s Dear Prudence column explaining that her sister, who is also pregnant, didn’t want to be “upstaged” by her sibling at a baby shower. Oh, come on. Whether or not you’re a celebrity, motherhood is not a theatrical event.

After giving birth in 2015, Kerry Washington said, “My body is the site of a miracle now.” Far be it from me to tell the actress exactly what qualifies as a miracle, but even the most religious women I know do not walk around with the attitude that they are supposed to be worshiped (by anyone besides their husbands) because they have given birth.

In fact, what these women seem to know is that having children is natural and a blessing and that these beings that come out of us are sometimes the source of great joy and sometimes deep sadness. And they also know that in an earlier time, good mothers were admired and praised without wearing golden costumes or whining to millions about their hardships.

In an interview about motherhood last year, Zooey Deschanel told Redbook: “I think it’s a huge accomplishment to have a child.” It’s not. Millions of women have been giving birth for millions of years. It’s an accomplishment to raise a child well. So maybe Adele and Beyoncé can check back in with us in, say, 20 years.”

This is disgusting women haters hating on women. Yes that’s just what we need more of. A New York Post article where some women hates on Beyonce for appearing as a gloriously beautiful pregnant Goddess of fertility. Beyonce is a very important cultural icon and she is proud and beautiful and every woman is a Goddess when she is pregnant and should be celebrated as such. In a world that loves life and cares for the future, life continuing itself is a miracle. Women are privileged to embody the creative Process directly.Men are accessories to this and they know it. Every person alive knows that their Mother is the Goddess and the Universe. And if you don’t know that you are so screwed up as to not even really be alive to the miracle that is life itself. The woman who wrote this hate filled ignorant article should be fired.

Royal Baby Astrology Horoscope, intense chart Little Prince

I just heard the glad tidings, a boy born July 22 @ 4:24 BST in London England.

YES  a CANCER PRINCE like his Dad and his Grandmother Princess Diana. A Momma’s boy,  as Cancer’ is the sign of the Mother, ruled by the Moon. Both Prince William and Kate have their Moon’s in Cancer so they will be a very close-knit private and emotional family.

In Fact Prince William’s MOON is at 5 degrees Of Cancer, so he will also be emotionally telepathic with his father with his Jupiter EXACTLY on his Father’s Natal moon and Mars 1 degree away. Could be a spitting image of his father but I feel he will have dark brown hair and beautiful intense blue eyes.   

Cancer’s  are emotional sensitive, crabby, emotionally needy, prone to  tummy upsets. Home is their sanctuary. Cancer’s Love to nurture others, very generous, wants to feed the people.  Born with that Grand Trine, and ultra tense Mars Jupiter  + Pluto opposition square to Saturn, plus the Uranus Pluto Square and more. Ambitious.

The Little Prince possesses a Royally Intense  chart fit for a future King. Or maybe not.

Here it is

Royal Baby Astrology Chart

Born within a half hour before the Sun entering ROYAL Leo. Many psychics were speculating, or projecting that it would be a girl. Whether in a boy or girl’s body, this little soul, like everyone else, chose his parents and everything about his birth. I will look at how it is like Princess Diana’s as we are  talking reincarnation, and karma. Soul’s do migrate from being females to males and back again.

The young Prince has a SCORPIO Ascendant

which usually indicates some life and death struggle at birth. I haven’t heard the details yet. He will definitely have piercing very dramatic eyes, with that Soul stare aspect. An intense persona, controlling and powerful. Mars and Pluto rules his Ascendant, but Mars is weak in Cancer, and conjunct Jupiter  the sign of Royalty. Jupiter is the stronger planet. A lot of 8th house intensity. There is a huge amount of karmic emotional resonance here. Pluto is Retrograde in Capricorn opposite Mars Jupiter and Squared by Saturn in Scorpio in his 11th house. Will he get to the throne ever?  This speaks of power struggles.

MOON- which is always the symbol of MOM is at 28 degrees of  Capricorn, which is his Mother Katherine Duchess of Cornwall’s sign! Good one. Mom- the Moon will rule over his Sun- his identity, his Desires-Mars, his way of thinking- Mercury, and his Regal, optimistic, honest, good-natured, good-humored Self with Jupiter in Cancer. The Moon rules every planet in Cancer and asteroid. In Capricorn it is reserved, Capricorn Moon’s are considered, dry, and they doesn’t like to show emotions, so there will be an internal struggle- but it will suit the Royal business of duty, history, stiff upper lip come easy to him.

MERCURY his communications ability is in CANCER so he will think with his feelings. How he feels and what he communicates are one and the same. Mercury is opposite Pluto in Capricorn, there will be no hiding anything from this boy, he will feel it all.

Born on a Full Moon, on that MARS JUPTER Conjunction to Lilith in CANCER. This boy will be very emotional, sensitive, clingy in some ways. Could be very defensive and avoid intimacy or be very nurturing to women and those who have been rejected or neglected.

VENUS in Virgo is Directly on the NEW ROYAL DEGREE of REGULUS the Heart of the Lion at Zero degrees Virgo.  This is also the degree of Archangel Raphael, the healer of the heart. So this Prince’s love will heal the past for Prince William from losing his mother so tragically. No more the power over monarch, this is a new earthy monarch who serves the people as a True Virgo does. The Prince will be whip smart, he will love arithmetic, accounting for everything in his kingdom. A perfectionist, hard worker, focussed, loves to ask questions. He will be very bright, love the country.

VENUS opposite NEPTUNE in PISCES – romantic, idealistic, fantasy lover, Neptune in the 3rd house of communications, siblings, his early childhood environment. Well growing up a Royal Prince is certainly Fantasyland come to life. He may not understand the real world. This aspect  makes him very creative, spiritual, psychic, dreamy, changeable, musical, a person who can bring dreams to life in Virgo. He will love reading fantasy. It can also mean an addicted personality. Conflict between reality and illusion.  He may talk about things like imaginary friends, spirits he’s familiar with from his past lives.

Saturn in Scorpio at the Apex of a  Pluto to Mars Jupiter T- square!!

HEAVY. This is power struggles, Saturn in Scorpio eliminates and recycles. He will have very heavy intense emotions to deal with. The Prince will definitely have digestion issues.

CHIRON in Pisces Trines his Mercury in Cancer and the North Node in Scorpio in his 12th house, exactly at 13 degrees. There will be some emotional sensitivities and insecurities about who he really is. He will not be content with the surface of things. This is a  wounded healer aspect.

North Node in Scorpio in the 12th house, Trines mercury in the 8th. 12th house tis he most spiritual. house of secrets, hidden enemies, is about Karma, death and rebirth.  I do believe he is the reincarnation of Princess Diana. I also feel that the awful truth will out because of this little Prince, at least within the confines of the Palace Walls.

The South Node at 13 degrees of Taurus sextiles Mercury in the 8th. The house of KARMA wealth, espionage, Scorpio type of emotional manipulations, power and control issues. This is a literal physical 6th house South Node, it is a debt that needs to be paid with a pound of flesh. This indicates that the princes past life  was as a servant to those in power, who was/is down to earth, someone with resources, sensuality, money, beauty, grace. South  node in Taurus is ruled by Venus. Hint Hint.

And of course that Uranus in Aries Pluto retro T- square. This Prince is born in the thick of the evolutionary changes coming in the world. There may not be a Royal Throne for him to inherit in the future.

His Midheaven is VIRGO ruled by Mercury in Cancer, he should be a straightforward smart hard working boy.

I wish blessings upon him, his mother and father, the Queen and Her royal family.

I will delve into his chart and Princess Di and mom and DAD later.
