The Oprah Winfrey Show

This article was first published on on November 22 2009.
On November 20th, TV-Queen Oprah Winfrey announced that in September 2011 she will stop with “The Oprah Winfrey Show”.   By then the show will have run for 25 years (the first episode was broadcast on Sept. 8, 1986). With Saturn now in opposition with Uranus – it seems fitting that Oprah an Aquarian herself – should chose to honour Uranus – and do something different. 25 years at the same job sounds like a very Saturnian thing to be doing to me, especially as Oprah has the Moon in Sagittarius in square to her Virgo ascendant. A restless soul, perhaps the main reason she has been able to stick at the wheel for so long is because of the social issues she was able to address in her show.  Oprah’s horoscope:

So why IS Oprah Winfrey stopping now? We are talking a serious change of professional direction here -so to answer our question, we must look to the midheave. Mercury rules the midheaven -so with Mercury in Aquarius a job in broadcasting, communicating human interest stories – sounds as good as it gets to me. In Oprah’s chart, Mercury opposes Pluto (lots of controversial subjects) and trines Jupiter (these subjects are handled with humor and integrity) and with Jupiter sextile to Pluto – there are clear social benefits. All agree that the Oprah Winfrey Show did a lot to change attitudes towards racism, discrimination against homosexuals, aids patients, trans-sexuals, etc.  So what’s happening to Mercury now and in 2011? Progressed Mercury is now in Pisces – and coming up to form a conjunction with the descendant. Pisces is a free-flowing sign and Mercury in Pisces is happiest when it can do its own thing, swim in its own current. Crossing into the 7th house, it signifies new ways of reaching out directly to others. Once in the 7th house, Mercury is above the horizon and therefore visible. My guess is – people will be seeing and hearing more – and not less from Oprah.  This idea fits nicely with the placement of the progressed Sun – now exalted in Aries. Oprah will be striking out, doing something bold and different.  Last but not least, I think the triple conjunction this year of Chiron, Jupiter and Neptunus in Aquarius – has undoubtedly added its weight to her decision. The conjunction in her sixth house suggest the need to create a daily routine which fits like a glove. Perhaps despite her success, Oprah was no longer really comfortable with her life. THe 6th is the house of appreticeship. This unique conjunction could give an increased sense of there being something else, something more  to live for. Chiron is what we have previously rejected – but now must embrace if we are to continue to live our lives with energy, passion and committment. Chiron is about honoring the call from within – and I think Oprah did just that. The horoscope for the first Oprah Winfrey Show…
