Michael Douglas Astrology



Michael Douglas (born September 25, 1944, 10:30 AM in New Brunswick, New Jersey, USA) is a Libra rising with Ascendant degree at 22 degrees and 14 minutes according to Vedic Astrology. Michael Douglas has a tumor in his throat. He will undergo eight weeks of radiation and chemotherapy, and his doctors expect him to make a complete recovery. First the devastating news about his son Cameron Douglas came, back in April this year, when a judge sentenced Michael Douglas son on drug charges to five years in prison. Now Michael Douglas has a throat tumor, and these unfortunate events have happened in Michael Douglas life when he is going through Jupiter Mahadasha and Saturn Bhukti in his Vedic Astrology chart.

In Michael Douglas case Jupiter rules 3rd house which represents throat and 5th house (eldest child, entertainment business, ability to fight a disease), and Jupiter is in 10th house in Leo sign in close conjunction with the Badhaka Planet Mercury, and they both are in 8th lord (Surgery, Accidents) Venuss Nakshatra. Also both Jupiter and Mercury are badly aspected by Saturns third aspect from the 8th house. At present Michael Douglas is going through Jupiter Mahadasha Saturn Bhukti, and Venus Anthara, when the news about his throat tumor became public. Transit Jupiter this year is badly aspected by transit Saturn, and Saturn is a planet that plays a major role in tumors, and Cancer disease. So the affliction of transit Jupiter by transit Saturn during Jupiter Mahadasha and Saturn Bhukti played a major role in unfortunate results for the affairs connected with third house (throat tumor) and 5th house (eldest sons imprisonment) as Jupiter rules 3rd house and 5th house in Michael Douglas astrology chart.

One more thing I observed in Michael Douglas astrology chart, that he has two very important planets Mars and Sun in 11th house in their own Nakshatras. Mars rules the second house (money, his voice) and 7th house (marriage, partnership), and Sun rules the 10th house of career. In 1980 Michael Douglas had a skiing accident, which stalled his career for three years while Saturn was transiting Virgo sign for three years over his natal Mars and natal Sun. Now after 30 years Saturn is again transiting same sign Virgo in his chart. Next couple of years will be a very sensitive time for Michael Douglas as Saturn during Saturn Bhukti will be transiting over his natal Mars which rules his money, voice and marriage, and natal Sun which rules his career. These areas of his life will be affected in the coming years. The Jupiter / Mercury period from Oct 2011 to Feb 2014 will be another very sensitive period as Mercury is the Badhaka planet and is in close conjunction with Jupiter the mahadasha lord. Also transit Saturn will be hovering over the natal position of ascendant lord Venus in Libra sign. The saving grace is that Jupiter rules the 5th house of cure should give Michael Douglas a strong ability to fight the throat tumor.

Michael Ellis DeBakey, world renowned heart surgeon, has died in Houston, Texas at the age of 99.

He was born Michel Dabaghi on September 7, 1908 in Lake Charles, Louisiana, to Lebanese immigrants Shaker and Raheeja DeBakey.

DeBakey was the chancellor emeritus of Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas, and director of The DeBakey Heart Center of Baylor and the Methodist Hospital.

DeBakey pioneered the use of Dacron grafts to replace or repair blood vessels. In 1958, to counteract narrowing of an artery caused by an endarterectomy, DeBakey performed the first successful patch-graft angioplasty. This procedure involved patching the slit in the artery from an endarterectomy with a Dacron or vein graft. The patch widened the artery so that when it closed the channel of the artery returned to normal size. The DeBakey artificial graft is now used around the world to replace or repair blood vessels.

  • 1 Three-year-old New Zealander chokes to death on candy
  • 2 Golf: Zach Johnson wins 71st Masters
  • 3 New York couple taking taxi to Arizona
  • 4 Vocational nurse charged with fatal Houston fire
  • 5 Iran starts industrial-scale production of nuclear fuel

The New Zealand Police has reported that a three-year-old boy choked to death on Saturday afternoon, due to what they believe was a piece of candy at his birthday party.

The parents did call New Zealand’s emergency number, 1-1-1, after their son alerted his parents to the fact that he was choking. The paramedics were unable to revive the Napier boy when they arrived at the scene.

The case has been referred to a coroner.


Relatively unknown golfer Zach Johnson won the 71st Masters Tournament in Augusta, Georgia. Johnson shot 3-under-par 69 in Sunday’s fourth round, to win by 2 strokes over Tiger Woods, Retief Goosen, and Rory Sabbattini.

Johnson won a purse worth US$1,305,000 and a lifetime qualification to the Masters Tournament, held annually at the Augusta National Golf Club.


A couple living in New York City have decided to take a taxi all the way to Arizona. Betty and Bob Matas are retiring and leaving the city for good. What started as joke, has become reality, in part to spare their cats from traveling in a jetliner cargo-hold. They have negotiated a US$3,000 flat fee instead of the metered rate, which was estimated at US$5,000.


A vocational nurse working for Dr. John Capriotti, a plastic surgeon, was accused of setting the fire that wounded several and killed three people in Houston, Texas on March 28. She was allegedly trying to cover up the fact that she hadn’t completed the paperwork for an upcoming audit.

The fire began in Dr. Capriotti’s office on the fifth floor and quickly spread to the sixth. Arson investigators from the Houston Fire Department, the FBI and the Federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives had been working to determine the source of the fire.


Iran announced that it has started industrial scale production of nuclear fuel involving hundreds of centrifuges. The announcement comes as President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad reasserts his nation’s nuclear rights in the face of two rounds of sanctions by the UN Security Council, which is seeking a halt to such work.

The United States denounced the declaration, saying it showed Iran was defying the international community.

More and more people are going for teeth whitening treatment with many opting for do-it-yourself over the counter whitening products. This is because the cost of professional treatment at the dentist is expensive with charges of several hundred to several thousand dollars for complicated cases. Even the most basic form of treatment will require more than one session at the dentist.

Hence the popularity of cheap teeth whitening treatment products and the tremendous growth of this market segment. The range of products available for every budget is quite staggering and can be bewildering to someone just starting on this. The good news is that the more expensive a product is does not necessarily mean it is more effective since results are dependent on several factors.

Most important of all is the condition of your teeth. Some people have naturally yellow or gray teeth and contrary to popular belief and culture, teeth are not white. The natural color of teeth for most people is off white. Some people also have teeth that are more translucent by nature causing the inner layer of enamel to show, giving the appearance of a shade of gray.

The next factor that determines the level of success in whitening teeth is the type of stains or the amount of teeth stains. Severe teeth stains will most likely require professional teeth whitening and often several sessions to successfully remove stains.

If your teeth stains are moderate to light, you can consider using over the counter products. Some people see dramatic results after a few days while others take months. Generally speaking, it is much harder for those with naturally gray teeth to be whitened.

Among the most popular home teeth whitening products is whitening gel. This comes in many forms of packaging. Commonly though, the gel is used as part of a mixture squeezed onto a dental tray that is fitted over teeth for a certain length of time, depending on each product’s formula. Some dental trays can be molded using hot water to make it pliable to fit teeth better so that the whitening gel comes into better contact with teeth surface to ensure the chemical reaction takes place.

Since this procedure can be a little messy and rather uncomfortable, some prefer the convenience of teeth whitening gel strips. However such strips are often difficult to keep in place as they get wet and slide out of position when the gel is diluted by saliva.

There are also teeth whitening pens that dispense gel like using a pen. The advantage of this is that the tip of the pen can get into hard to reach crevices and uneven surface to achieve better gel distribution. Plus it’s handy to carry around so you can apply the gel on the go.

In addition, there are also other kinds of applicators such as cotton buds that contain the gel in the stem which let you do more precise gel application onto teeth.

Which ever type of product you choose, you need to manage your expectations of achieving whitened teeth and know that even if you manage to whiten teeth to your satisfaction, they will stain over time due to the food and drink.

Today Virgin Money finalised a deal with the British Government to acquire the nationalised Newcastle upon Tyne-based bank Northern Rock for £747 million. During 2012, the bank will be rebranded as a Virgin company and the current Northern Rock customers will become customers of the enlarged Virgin Money.

The Northern Rock bank had been nationalised in 2008 following the revelation that the company had received emergency support from the UK Government. Northern Rock had required support due to its exposure during the subprime mortgage crisis in 2007. Sir Richard Branson’s Virgin Group had a bid for the bank rejected prior to the bank’s nationalisation. In 2010, while nationalised, the current high street bank Northern Rock plc was split from the ‘bad bank’, Northern Rock (Asset Management). Virgin have only purchased the ‘good bank’ of Northern Rock, not the asset management company.

The deal which could have additional payments to put the total value of the sale to over £1 billion had been first announced on 17 November 2011 and was criticised by some as not being a good enough deal for taxpayers. Opposition such as the Labour Party requested that the National Audit Office investigate the sale, and for it to be put on hold. By the beginning of 2012, the deal had been approved by the Financial Services Authority and the European Commission for merger clearance.

Jayne-Anne Gadhia will be Virgin Money’s CEO and former deputy governor of the Bank of England, Sir David Clementi, will be Chairman. Virgin have also pledged to maintain an operational headquarters in Newcastle upon Tyne as well as maintaining the current branches.

Los Angeles, California – A simple saliva test can predict whether children will get cavities, how many cavities they will get and which teeth are most vulnerable.

Developed by researchers at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles, the test quantifies the genetic component of tooth decay, spotting the risk when something can be done about it.

“When we apply this to young children, it allows us to predict what might be their future caries history—the number of cavities that they’ll get by, say, their late 20s or early 30s,” says researcher Paul Denny.

Called the Caries Assessment and Risk Evaluation (CARE) test, the test measures the relative proportions in saliva of different types of sugar chains called oligosaccharides. The same sugar chains are present on tooth surfaces.

The effect of sugar chains on teeth’s resistance to disease is analogous to the effect of “good” and “bad” cholesterol on blood vessels. “Good” sugar chains tend to repel bacteria that cause cavities while “bad” allow bacteria to bond to teeth and start the decay process. Unlike cholesterol, however, sugar chain makeup in humans is 100% genetically determined.

Denny and colleagues have found that the sugar chain makeup in saliva can predict a child’s future cavity history to plus or minus one cavity with greater than 98% confidence.

The findings suggest that in developed areas of the modern era genes play a more significant role in tooth decay than in former times or third world nations where gross malnutrition and negligent oral hygiene held the greatest impact on dental health.

One hundred and twenty detainees at an immigration removal centre in Oxford, UK, are on hunger strike. The protest started when some detainees refused breakfast on Wednesday 14th June 2006. A letter from the hunger strikers explaining why they are seeking to draw attention to their plight in this way has been reproduced in full below.

Those detained at the centre are mostly men who have sought asylum in the UK and whose asylum applications have been rejected. These people are then held without knowing how long they will be detained for – some end up being held for many years while awaiting deportation.

The removal centre, known as Campsfield, or Campsfield House is approximately 5 miles north of Oxford and has been in operation since 1993. It was managed on behalf of the UK Government by Global Solutions Limited, until may 2006 when it was taken on by GEO UK, the centre has a capacity of 198. Only males are detained at Campsfield.

According to the campaign group Barbed Wire Britain Over 2,600 individuals, mostly asylum seekers, are detained indefinitely in the UK without trial and with no automatic right to bail.

There have been reports in the UK press of the state taking people to detention centres without notice, in the early hours of the morning using excessively heavy handed tactics, taking children out of schools and separating families.

Many UK people and politicians express their disgust at the way detainees are treated, yet it continues. Perhaps this action by the detainees themselves will further highlight their plight and result in more UK electors writing to their MPs and demanding improvements to the way in which rejected asylum seekers are treated.

“We are detainees at Campsfield removal centre in Oxford. Most of us have been here for a long while now. There are people who have been detained for up to two years and down to three months. We are cramped in here like animals. We are treated like animals and moved around different detention centres like animals. The immigration service have taken husbands from their families and taken people who ran away from persecution in their various countries, and dumped everyone in here.

Once you are put in here the immigration service forget you. There are detainees who have applied to go back to their own countries that are still being held here for months without any news about their cases, just so that the private security companies get more money.

Detainees are asked to seek asylum and then refused. The immigration service also ask detainees to apply for bail. When you get a bail hearing date all of a sudden they serve you with removal papers that are not valid. There are many of these situations. In most cases the immigration service don’t take you to your court hearings. And then they tell the judges you refused to turn up, just so the hearing goes ahead in your absence. Many detainees have been served with removal papers and travel documents but nothing happens on the removal day.

Campsfield has become a slave house. We detainees are treated like slaves, to do odd jobs for officers. Detainees are handcuffed to see doctors or dentists in hospitals or clinic appointments. We have some racist security officers who make racist comments to detainees and go out of their way to make you feel like committing suicide. Detainees have to be at the point of death before they get to see the doctors.

The food is not worth eating. Even dogs would refuse to eat what we eat. But we don’t have a choice; every single day we eat the same food (the food we eat is rice, chicken, sandwiches, and left-over eggs)”.

A suicide car bomb attack in northwestern Pakistan has killed at least 30 people, including some children.

Investigators say the bomb exploded Tuesday on a busy street near a market in the city of Charsadda, 40 kilometers north of Peshawar. The blast wounded dozens of people and destroyed several buildings.

“The death toll has gone up to 32 and more than 100 people have been wounded in this suicide attack,” said Bashir Bilour, the Senior Minister of North West Frontier Province.

Hazrat Ali, a shopkeeper, was a witness to the event. He recounted his experiences to the Agence France-Presse news agency. “I was buying something before closing my shop. A car was parked on the other side of the road and all of a sudden there was a huge blast. There was smoke and darkness everywhere. I passed out.” Ali sustained shrapnel injuries to his forehead and torso.

This was the third bombing in the area in three days. On Monday, a suicide bomber in a rickshaw blew himself up at a checkpoint in Peshawar, killing three people. A suicide bomber killed thirteen people in a crowded market outside the city on Sunday.
