Thirty-eight year-old actress Sally Field wins her second Best Actress Academy Award for her role in Places in the Heart. Her heartfelt acceptance speech, in which she references a line of dialogue from her first Oscar winning performance, Norma Rae (“you like me”), will be remembered publicly in both praise and mockery.

The transiting Sun is conjunct Field’s natal Moon in Aries, signifying an earnest and unfiltered expression of emotion. Transiting Mercury retrograde and Venus retrograde in Aries are opposite the natal Ascendant in Libra, resonating with natal Mercury post-retrograde and Venus retrograde in Sagittarius, indicating criticism and scrutiny from others due to misunderstandings or miscommunication.

bill-clinton-blue-stampFifty year-old U.S. President Bill Clinton has an illicit encounter with White House intern Monica Lewinsky, who is wearing a blue dress that she apparently will not wash for some time. The president has had an on and off intimate relationship with her since November 15, 1995. Although he will end it three months from now, lingering evidence left today will come back to haunt him.

Transiting Mars is retrograde in Libra, conjunct Clinton’s natal Ascendant, Mars, and Neptune in Libra, signifying his unwitting offering of what will become the most notorious piece of DNA evidence in U.S. history. Transiting Saturn in Aries is opposite the natal Ascendant in Libra, indicating the relationship has come to its inevitable climax and will soon be over.
