First Photo : Gwen's Leo Son A Ten

This first "official" photo of newborn Zuma with his Mom Gwen Stefani appeared this week on her web site

Zuma Nesta Rock Rossdale was born August 21st, 2008. A real cusp baby Zuma's sun is conjunct the mid heaven in Leo, at 29 degrees six seconds, if he was born just a handful of minutes later, his sun sign would have been Virgo. This lucky little Leo has an older double Gemini brother Kingston (Sun and Moon) who achieved fame immediatement as he was born the same day as Shiloh Jolie-Pitt so is her astro-twin.

Do you have a cusp baby? Confused about when the sun changed signs on the day your child was born? Check out and calculate on Your Child's Sign.

Matilda Rose Leger Turns 3-the next Julia Roberts?

Matilda Rose Leger turned three on October 28th, the same birthday as Julia Roberts. Here she is trick or treating in New York last week dressed as a little Princess. Her Mom noted:
"I am the mother of the most tender-hearted, high-spirited, beautiful little girl who is the spitting image of her father."Mlle Kiddie has talked about this child's lucky Jupiter aspects before. (earlier posts: 7/10/08 Dark Knight's Daughter 8/28/08 Joker's Legacy of Friends.
The latest is, that her father's parents finally settled her Dad's estate and despite the scuttlebutt that she was not provided for she was , even though the will was done before she was born, she was ultimately deemed the beneficiary. I suspect having a grandchild that looks like the child they lost is a blessing to her Aussie grandparents. Photo and source celebrity baby blog.

Julia Roberts Helps A Painted Turtle,,,

Julia Roberts celebrated a birthday Tuesday, most likely in California as she and fellow stars have helped out one of Paul Newman's pet projects , the Painted Turtle Camp in Santa Monica at a benefit Monday night. As a Mom of the twins, Hazel Patricia and Phinnaeus Walter (Sunday Nov 28, 2004, LA,CA) Hazel at 1:21 Phinnaeus at 1:22 and her latest Henry(June 18, 2007 in LA born at 1:23 ) she's been doing the parent stuff and putting her career on hold a bit, so its always nice to see her back using her talents. Nothing like star power for raising funds. (source). Birth times Just Jared. We're checking on whether itstheir am or pm! we know Henry is the morning.

What is the source of this Pretty Woman's star power? Let's look at her Star Chart for Celebrity Kids. Here's a little tidbit Mlle K found delicious:

Neptune (in Scorpio) in the Fifth House

Imagination is a quality that Julia has in abundance and she may even fantasize about being a "Star", as she idealizes celebrity and a larger-than-life Existence. She's drawn to entertainment or the arts and may enjoy theatre or performing as a child. If she has the discipline to develop her talent, her dreams could bear fruit.

Julia Roberts Chart Wheel and her Kiddiegram.

But back to the real source of her star power (although her Neptune dream certainly helped!) Well as a start her North Node in Aries is in the tenth house. Mlle Kiddie uses the Placidus house system, but if one used equal house, this North Node would be absolutely conjunct her MC. So that's it in a nutshell. A pioneering radiant energy in Aries, fueled by a powerful Scorpio Sun and a Moon in Leo conjunct Jupiter (in Virgo). Okay okay so Pluto is conjunct some of her other Virgo planets. with so many planets under the horizon, and being a Scorpio Sun, we'll only see really an outer Julia and that will be what she choses to reveal. And here's what Cafe Astrology, Mlle Kiddie's favorite astrology cafe says about the MC or Midheaven:

The Midheaven is the cusp of the tenth house of the natal chart, and is one of the angles of a chart. It is found at the very top of the chart, and it is the most public point in our chart. It relates to our career or "life path" and suggests our social standing and reputation.

Britney's Sons Grandfather Continues Control of Britney's Assets

Britney Spear's Dad took over her finances during her"horrible year" annus horribilis now she seems (she is a Sag with a Moon in Aquarius) to have turned her life around, with a new hit , working on a new album, winning three MTV awards and preparing for her first world tour since 2004-but her lawyers indicated that perhaps permanent custodianship by the boys grandfather, might assure her more leverage with her regaining custody of her two Virgo sons. That pending case has been decided and the boys grandfather will maintain control indefinitely of the stars financial and personal assets. Sean is three and Jayden is two. Here are their Kiddie Star Sign Chart Wheels: Sean Preston Federline , Britney Spears . Jayden James Federline (right)
We're wishing the boys and their mom an annus mirabilis-a year of wonders!

Celebrity Kids and Their Famous Parents Transits: Lourdes Leon Madonna's Daughter

Insufficiently informed people (whether skeptics or fans) who think President Reagan landed Air Force One on the strength of his Town and Country Horoscope, should know and can check it out through the blogs and few astrology links that Mlle Kiddie has on her blog that there is Sirius/serious astrology for grownups (and yes, although Elsa Elsa is the most cosmic, generous and wide ranging with her Astrodispatch, there are many other fine sites out there that astrologically hip folks like Elsa P. help to let us know about. Occasionally we will link to these 'real-life" astrology blogs like Astrorevolution when we discuss a child's celebrity parents. As their "transits" and the way they have lived their life given their chart potential definitely impact their kids life.

For example Lourdes, shown here with her biological Dad, dancer Carlos Leon (July 10, 1966 Cuba) had been asking her Mom last summer if she could live with him in New York. Now with the pending divorce of Madonna and Guy Ritchie she may see more of him. Lourdes birthday was October 14, 1996." Lola" as she's called , not surprisingly wants to be a dancer. Her Sun is in Libra. Her North Node in Libra is conjunct her Mercury in Libra. her Moon is in Scorpio. We are hoping that Pat Taglilatelo of Astro Data Bank can share Lourdes info with her so we can have her chart wheel in the Kiddiegram Star Bureau. Her boss owns an early copy of Astro Data Bank Software but the computer it was installed on was stolen! and being a Sag, well of course she has no idea which city the original software is in.

Mlle Kiddie, being French is very partial to French astrologers. Particularly French astrologers who write in English, so she highly recommends a French astrologer Claire Courts who lives in the UK has a three year old child and writes a really great blog, Astrorevolution. Mlle Kiddie has linked to her analysis of Madonna and Guy as an example of understanding how a birth chart evolves. A somber pas de deux please around that Saturn opposite their Virgo Stellium.

"A Little Sean Penn" Born to Baby Mama Amy Poehler

Amy Poehler missed SNL last night . As Seth Meyer's broke the news to viewers by announcing her chair was empty because "she was having a baby" Actually, The baby, Archie was born early Saturday evening to Will Arnett and his Baby Mama Poehler, shown here at the Emmy's. When asked if they ever had a baby would it be the funniest child in the world the couple had said in a bonus feature of their DVD Blades of Glory

Poehler: We think we might have the most unfunniest child.
Arnett: We have always imagined that we'd have a Sean Penn-like child.
Poehler: A little baby Sean Penn.Arnett: Real brooding, Method-y actor.
Poehler: Smokin' all the time....I hope my baby doesn't smoke. I don't know what kind of baby we're gonna have. I really should get on this. ( source) :

They got their wish on a potential brooder, as Archie's sun sign is Scorpio as is his Mars. Mlle Kiddie notes that his Mars has three very postive aspects to Uranus, Jupiter and Saturn. so she suspects he's gonna have a lotta fun with his double Taurus (Moon and Sun) Dad (May 5, 1970 Toronto time unknown)

Mars Trine Uranus:
Archie is daring, courageous, rambunctious, and full of energy and high spirits, and he can be a bit wild and reckless, also. He is willfully independent and dislikes conforming to schedules and routines. His vitality is strong.
Mars Sextile Jupiter:
Archie takes initiative and asserts himself easily. He has a sort of easy, natural confidence that he is inclined to take for granted, and he often succeeds at his aims without a struggle or putting too much energy into it. His health is likely to be very good, also.
Mars Sextile Saturn:
Archie has good concentration and the ability to persist until he reaches his goals. He is cautious about asserting his will or taking a new direction; but once he commits himself to a course of action, he works quietly and steadily. He does need moral support, though, as he is inclined to get bogged down and discouraged from time to time.

Sean Penn may play brooding types but he's an actor, with a Sun in Leo and Moon in Cancer and a Sagittarius rising.(August 17, 1960 3:17 pm Burbank, CA) So the Arnetts don't have a Sean-Penn like child and do have a little Archie who's Moon is in Virgo if he's born in the early evening, which is a great sign to have if your Mom has a Sun in Virgo with a stacked chart of Virgo planets! (cf earlier post Happy Birthday Hillary, Oops Amy!) and until we know the time of his birth, we won't know his rising sign, but with a name like Archie and parents who are comics, we'd say it's in the sign of tons of fun.

Princess Fiona and Shrek Trek: The Jolie-Pitts Back in Nice

Angelina Jolie has marriage on her mind...She's a Gemini, so this may change! Usually folks with this many kids to load and unload (photos from even on and off private planes aren't thinking of yet an other activity, but she mused last week that her kids may be the reason that Brad Pitt and she( en famille as the Jolie-Pitt clan) may get married before their earlier vow not to get married until gay marriage was legal everywhere in the US.

Jolie noted:
But sooner or later, it will be the kids who ask us. They see films and start asking questions. Such as, 'Why are Shrek and Fiona married and you're not?'

"Princess Fiona: I want what any princess wants - to live happily ever after... with the *ogre* I married.

Maddox or "Mad "(He was born on August 5, 2001 as Rath Vibol in Cambodia, he was adopted from an orphanage at seven months) was the last to celebrate a birthday go-karting with his Dad August 7th in the south of France. It seems evident that this group takes the time of special outings with each parent taking time with one child every so often. His brother Pax, adopted when he was three from an orphanage in Ho Chi Minh City Vietnam, was born Nov 29, 2005. He was named Pax by his mother before she died. Next birthday is Zahara (adopted at six months from an orphanage in Addis Abbaba in Ethiopia, her birthday is January 8, 2005). Shiloh was born Cesarean May 27,2006 in Swakopmundi, Namibia. Like any good Gemini, she has dual passports, one is Namibian .
The Jolie-Pitt brood added twin siblings Vivienne and Knox who were born in Nice France, on July 12, 2008 . They are still shielded from paparazzi shots by virtue of their traveling in portable baby carriers.
Shiloh's Kiddie Star Chart Wheel
Her Kiddiegram celebrity Baby Report
Mlle Kiddie has done a joint twin chart for Vivienne and Knox.
She'll have to call in the asteroid specialists and Sabian Symbol
folks to bring meaning to their individual charts when she has
more precise birth data.

Maddox (August 5, 2001 Battambang, Cambodia) has a Sun conjunct Mercury in Leo (exact at 12 degrees) his Moon not surprisingly given his serene detachment about being supplanted with not one but five siblings before he turned seven is in Aquarius, conjunct Uranus, again exact at 23 degrees (also conjunct Neptune at seven) and Ummmm his North Node at 4 degrees Cancer is exactly conjunct his Jupiter and Venus. Whew! The stars don't compel but impel, however, this last placement shows that destiny definitely is with his brothers and his sisters and family. And we don't even have a birth time! He was at all those four degrees symbolize, four when the first addition to Team Jolie-Pitt was drafted.

Astro Twins: Brooke Shield's Grier and Katie Holmes's Suri

This photo is from Babyrazzi, of Brooke Shields and her daughters at a benefit in New York last Sunday in New York Brooke Shields and daughters Rowan and Grier were snapped in their costumes at the Children Affected by AIDS Foundation event. Rowan Francis Henchy.(May 15, 2003 Manhattan, NY ) Grier Hammond Henchy(born April 18, 2006 LA) same day as Suri Cruise.

Last year Rowan was obsessed with Hannah Montana at Halloween, this year it looks like she's gone the way of most five year olds and doggone it has gone with the Dalmatians! although now she's big on the Jonas brothers.
Suri's Dad Cruise had criticized Shields for her use of anti-depressants after her first child was born. Shields had the courage to write Down Came The Rain her journey through post partum depression. Her decision to write about this experience and by courageously addressing this issue, makes Mlle Kiddie wish that the Shields-Henchy family continue to be showered with good fortune. Shields subsequently made up with Cruise. Or I guess it was really Cruise ultimately made up with Shields. Go Mommy Cat! we admire people who can forgive and sit down with guys who haven't given birth. Not for nothing, were your daughters born on the same day in the same hospital. Even Tom Cruise must have understood the power of synchronicity and honesty, he couldn't be an emissary for post partum depression and "TomKat's" daughter would be going to the same very small Hollywood Birthday parties with Shields daughters!

Mlle Kiddie doesn't have an exAdd Imageact time for Grier. Her astro-twin Suri Cruise and she share similar aspects but definitely looking at them they have a lot of differences in their chart wheels. If Grier is born later in the day her Moon will not be in Sagittarius as is Suri's but in Capricorn. And if this late moon is in evidence, Grier will also have a north node exactly conjunct her Mercury in Aries. Since we dont have precise birth times for Shield's daughters, we are doing Brooke Shield's Kiddie Star Sign Wheel & Kiddiegram Report as she was a child star in Blue Lagoon.

Suri Surpasses Scarlett in Sartorial Style?

Last summer when Suri went on European holiday because her Dad was filming in Germany, her Mom and she went to Paris. As the latest Forbes List of Influential Infants noted
"We're now as fascinated by the fact that Suri has taken off to Paris and Berlin in little Burberry outfits as we are by what Scarlett Johansson is wearing."

Could be Suri's Venus in the First House (in Pisces) as Mlle Kiddie notes about Suri's Venus in the First House
This child's charm, sweet manners, and/or physical beauty make her extremely popular, but an excessive concern with her appearance and a pronounced streak of vanity may work against her. She often prefers not to compete or expend effort, because so many things seem to fall into her lap without any exertion on her part.

Scarlett by the way (Nov 22, 1984 NY, NY) is a 0 degree Sag, with a Moon in late Scorpio or early Sag. Her Neptune is at 0 degrees Cap. She was recently wed to Canadian actor Ryan Reynolds . Attended by only a handful of close friends and family, the ceremony was held at a remote wilderness retreat outside of Vancouver, B.C. Fashion photographers were probably no where near. Although this picture of the newly weds was snapped by newscom.

Text C-h-i-l-d to 9-0-9-9-9 for Harlow: Nicole Richie and Joel Madden's Little Capricorn

Harlow's first words were predictably says her Dad Joel Madden, Dada (when she wants to laugh or have fun) and Mama for everything else. Harlow already has inspired her parents to do more than duck paparazzi with their fame. If you have followed this generous parenting duo, you will note that even before Harlow was born, they were asking friends to sign up for a baby registry not for Harlow but for moms struggling to provide for their kids. As SF Gate notes:

The Web site will be a registry, like for a bridal or shower registry, where low-income women list things they need for their babies. More well-off people will then go on and buy stuff for the children."
Check out the Richie-Madden's Children's Foundation and just text child for the first fundraiser a children's playground in LA All you need is a cell phone and send them $5 how simple is that?

"Change the life of a child… with a simple text.
We’re pleased to announce the launch of "Text CHILD to 90999", a new campaign to raise funds to help kids through a new kind of fundraising – with a simple text message. Each text message donates $5, billed to your phone bill. This is the first time a campaign is using popular culture mass media to raise funds with the new technology, so we’re excited to see how much we can raise.
The first thing we want to do is build a playground at Beyond Shelter. Their service enriched apartment building in Los Angeles has families with 175 kids in it, most of whom were formerly homeless. They’re playing in a concrete courtyard where we held our campaign launch today. We want to build them a playground – and you can help!
Out of the $5.00 donation, $4.50 goes to The Richie-Madden Children’s Foundation to support programs like the playground at Beyond Shelter, and $.50 goes to the Mobile Giving Foundation to support more text donate programs like this. Standard text message rates also apply.
All the major US carriers are involved in this (Verizon, ATT, TMobile, Sprint, Nextel). If you’re outside the US, you can still join us by donating online.
We haven’t produced commercials or advertisements. It’s just you and us. Hopefully enough people will text "CHILD" to "90999" once, twice, up to five times, to help us build a playground at Beyond Shelter… and more.
Thanks for your help!And, please, TEXT "C-H-I-L-D" to "9-0-9-9-9"

We wrote about this awesome little executive Capricorn kid, earlier in an earlier post when she was seven months A Walk In The Park. She seems to have inspired her parents in a way that not all new parents go...they are so grateful for her, that they are thinking about other children.

Mlle Kiddie is going to text today and she hopes you will as well.

Motherhood Movie Reel and Real Life: Minnie Driver And Son Henry

One of our most referenced posts has been about Aquarius Minne Driver before she gave birth to a son,who we announced in a post Henry Story Driver in September. Here she is with her little Virgo born on September 5th who shares her Moon in Scorpio. The photo was posted to My Space for friends and family and fans to enjoy free of charge. Us Magazine reveals that she said no to taking big bucks for a celebrity magazine spread. Although in May before Henry's birth she admitted to the UK's Independent only this about the secret father. He's English and "sort of in the same business" At that time she also revealed that they had no plans to wed in the "near future."

Here in a mother who has a lot to confide in her son's little journal!

Driver's next movie appropriately is called Motherhood. The plot summary so far" A mother of two (Uma Thurman) has to overcome urban challenges while planning her daughter's sixth birthday party." Driver plays Thurman's best friend.These are two Mom's Mlle Kiddie really admires, so she's looking forward to seeing the movie filmed while Driver was pregnant.

Max and Emme's Grandfather is a Scientologist

A new update on the The Pisces fraternal twins, with Moons in Scorpio, Max and Emme Antony.

Max and Emme's grandfather (Jennifer Lopez's father) is a Scientologist , and has been for twenty years, so it's not startling that she would state in a scoop of an interview published in Tina Brown's new site (and now taken down after getting a legal letter regarding the Sessums interview that was run, when Elle magazine decided not to run it -but run on the site without permission) that she wasn't a Scientologist but would consider schooling them in the "lifestyle" aspects of the controversial religion. She notes (we are now quoting from another source that captured that interview via rss feed) that :

"Yeah. I wouldn't mind. Not at all. Because I know that the technologies that they have are very helpful... It's all about communication. That's the thing I really don't like about talking about this. I do know so many great people who do do it, who choose it as a lifestyle and really follow it and it is their religion," Lopez said of the religion that fellow new parents Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise, believe in. "I just wish that people wouldn't judge it without knowing what it is."

Our last post about Jo Lo, Wonder Mom was about her running a triathlon months after the twins birth. Regardless of how the twins (cf earlier KiddieStarSign post) are schooled, the six million dollars (cf first post) their parents received for their first photo shoot has been given to charity and has also as their Mom noted " set them up for life. " Um...they do have Jupiter in the second house. As their Kiddiegram notes:

Jupiter in the Second House
Money and material advantages matter quite a lot to Max and Emme and because they will settle for only the finest quality, that's what they'll attain. (Parents may sigh when thy insiston designer apparel or the most expensive pair of shoes.) They'll also want to give the most generous presents, even to casual acquaintances who might invite them to their birthday parties.
While generally "lucky" with finances,they may be wasteful or irresponsible with their money as a youngsters, because they're sure "there's plenty more where that came from." Teaching them a little discipline along with that faith will be helpful to he twins in the long run.

Toddler Chosen For Role of Living Goddess From Her Horoscope

Dispenser of blessings....

The living goddesses of Nepal come from the Buddha's own clan, the Shakyas. Matina Shakya, three year old daughter of a Nepalese watchmaker has begun life as a living goddess. She began her life as a young deity in Kathmandu on Tuesday October 7, at 11:39 am, an auspicious time for the young girl to take up her duties.
Matina was chosen on the basis of the 32 auspicious signs her horoscope is said to possess. Her selection represents a centuries old tradition of the Royal Kumari. Her horoscope traditionally has to be compatible with the reigning monarch. Now that Nepal is an atheist country and the monarchywas abolished this spring her selection had to be approved by the government as the royal family no longer is in power.
Her father said "All we did was to send her horoscope to the selection panel."
As a spokesman for the government trust that manages the young Kumari, whose name Matina means "love" explained that the girl was selected
" after consultation with Buddhist priests, community leaders and officials who will look after her. "
She will be in her position dispensing blessings to her devotees until puberty.She replaces the former child goddess Preeti Shakya now eleven. To the left is the eleven year old girl Sajani Shakya who has recently stepped down from a similar position in another valley of Kathmandu and who is in the Living Goddesses film.
"Advocates for the tradition say choosing a Hindu goddess from a Buddhist tribe shows that common understanding among different groups is possible in Nepal" (The Times)
Recently a lawyer from Matina's community filed suit that the tradition of deification deprived young girls of a normal childhood living in isolated palaces apart from their families, so recent legislation has decreed that this young representative of a three century old religious tradition be given an education so this little goddess will be able to enjoy rights that normal kids her age have, and she will be able to be schooled. Before she was chosen she was enrolled in nursery school. She returns to her family when she is between 9-11. Until then she will be schooled by private tutors and her family can visit her in her palace built in the fifteenth century.
For those unfamiliar with this long tradition one can rent on Netflix The Living Goddesses or read a review on Amazon of the film. Full story from ABC News .As noted in Lexis/Nexis News each of Kathmandu's Valley's three cities - Kathmandu, Bhaktapur and Patan - have their own Kumaris. The Buddhists worship her as representing Bajradevi and the Hindus as a reincarnation of Goddess Kali. This child is the most powerful one.

Push Over Dad Russell Crowe Plays CIA Honcho With Kids

Surprisingly , as an Aries father, Russell Crowe says he's a pushover Dad with his kids. Crowe told People Magazine on Sunday at the New York premiere of his latest thriller Body of Lies.
"Between my wife and myself, I'm the pushover as far as the kids are concerned."
In the spy thriller, Crowe plays a CIA veteran who gives commands by cell phone to his agents in the field risking their lives while in the suburbs doing tasks, like any multi-tasker, at places like his kid's soccer practice.
Why is Crowe (birth data from who has such a different image in the media a pushover when it comes to his sons? As we noted in an earlier post his sons Tenny and Charlie are a Cancer and a Sagittarius respectively.

Their Dad is an Aries with a Moon in Aquarius and an Aquarius rising.

Both boys have Neptune in Aquarius. Tenny has a Moon in Scorpio and his older brother Charlie has a Moon in Scorpio (and a Sun conjunct Pluto) or a Moon in Sagittarius depending on what time he was born. Cusp signs for children are easy to figure out with Mlle Kiddie's special calculating free chart wheel software. Charles was born on December 21, 2003. One's first response would guess he was a Capricorn because it looks like he was born on the solstice, but that year the solstice was the next day.

Here's what Tennyson's Kiddiegram says about his Neptune in Aquarius
Neptune in Aquarius:
This group harbors great hopes for world unity and universal brother and sisterhood. An inner group impulse toward collective awakening and a strongly futuristic, visionary, evolutionary "dream". On the other hand, increasing globalization and impersonalization of daily life is strongly at work in their lives. How to contribute to the whole without becoming a cog in the machine is their quest
Neptune in 7th house:Tenny's hopes, dreams, and fantasies are often projected on to other people. He may be enthralled with a new friend, seeing only this person's special and wonderful qualities, then become disillusioned when the other doesn't live up to his image. He may also be drawn to people he believes need saving, like the forlorn child who is new to the neighborhood or the social misfit that others shun, and he can be endlessly giving.
