Jamie Partridge

Jamie PartridgeWelcome to Astrology King. My name is Jamie Partridge. I live on the east coast of Australia with my wife and our five amazing children.

I became interested in astrology at age 29, shortly before my Saturn return. Just browsing a bookstore on holidays is how it started. I was subconsciously looking for answers as to why my life seemed so fated and eventful.

It was to be a steep learning curve as my Saturn return resulted in ill health, loss of my business, and the first of three divorces. The roller coaster has kept going up till this moment, so I do have a lot of life experience to draw on to increase my knowledge of the workings of astrology.

After buying my first computer in 2008, some playing around on astrology forums revealed I had developed a unique and accurate form of chart analysis and prediction. With the encouragement of MySpace friends, I started an astrology forum called Funkastrology.

My first astrology website was funkastrology.co.uk, a joint project with Marina Macario. In 2009 it underwent a name change to darkstarastrology.com. I started my own website, astrologyking.com, in January 2013.

I do not use Houses nor Signs. I use aspects and fixed stars. I do use cardinal points like AC and MC. I don’t believe House cusps are real. They have no energy. They are constructs of the human imagination and have purely symbolic meaning, in much the same way as Tarot cards. This article explains my reasoning: Precession Astrology.

All the best, Jamie Partridge.

  1. I’m a second Decan Virgo female born 9/11/65.
    Wondering is Venus opposing Neptune on the 24th of July is a bad or auspicious day for getting injections of filler around my mouth area for wrinkles at my dermatologist office . It would not be my first time … and all has gone well each time before .
    Thanks Jamie … as a mystically inspired Virgo , I adore your Astology King site

  2. Hi Jamie

    Can you recommend any good reference textbooks on planet aspects?


      • Thanks Jamie/Gerard. I’ve only very recently come across your website and am really impressed with the accuracy & content in your descriptions of the effects of the planetary interactions. I am, therefore, encouraged to research further.


  3. I have two books by Robert Hand. Planets in Transit and Planets in Youth. Both deal primarily with Aspects.

  4. Jamie — Dude, you are by far the best astrologer online I’ve encountered. You monthly, annual and weekly forecasts are great and detailed and put some of the many hack general sites to shame. Am a second decan Cancerian and for example, your weekly prediction for the week of july 23 was amazingly accurate. M-Tuesday kinda sucked but the remainder of the week so far were a 180-degree turn. Not the first time these were accurate.so kudos, mate. Peter

  5. Hi Jamie, I am pisces 22 Feb 1977. This year started very good, I went back to university and did well. Things are turning ugly all because of my colleagues (hidden enemies). I am now struggling at work and my relationship with supervisor doomed. I hope this tough period will be over soon.

  6. hello jamie hope you are fine and doing well i want to ask one thing if any of our planet if conjunct with fixed star what orb is to be considered effective if there is my planet conjunct but orb is 3.15 should it be considered or not waiting for you precious reply

  7. Hi Jamie.
    Am posting this query on about you page as there had been no reply for the query on the respective page.
    Can you please give an overview of Neptune square Neptune transit to composite chart of two people? I am searching for it since you posted about this transit but didn’t find its implications as a composite aspect between two people. Would appreciate if you reply.

  8. happy belated birthday to you.

    I do remember visiting Darkstar and liking it a lot…

    The world/the internet can be so small …

  9. Hi Jamie,

    As your email adres (j@astrologyking.com) isn’t working I’ll post it here: I just cam across a dutch website that has your weekly horoscopes translated to dutch on their site. Are you aware of this and if not is it ok for you that people do this without mentioning you?

    The website is https://rubriek.nl/mind/weekhoroscoop-leeuw/#comment-22618

    Just thought to let you know.

    Thanks for all your work!!!!

    With Love,


  10. Jamie I have read your astrology for several years now. Thank you! How do you think this week may affect me. Pisces born March 12 1974 puerto la cruz Venezuela now living in Houston Texas. Not 100% sure but I think I was born around 11:30 am. Any insight appreciated. Having a very very hard time in every aspect of life, health, love, relationships (of all kinds), finances, work, well everything is just unbearable! I feel like just giving up but then I think of my kids…

  11. Hi Jaime, I have read my December horoscope for Pisces Decan 2 Born March 2 , 1966. I;m involved with an Association and we will soon have AGM do you see me being voting on again as Chair?

  12. Hi Jamie, hope you are doing great. I wanted to ask a question about my career, please let me know if there is any email where i can send my question giving more details.

    Thank & Regards

  13. Happy Holidays and wishing you and your children many blessings in the new year.

    It is interesting that you picked up your first astrology book right before your first Saturn return. So, did I, while looking around in a Sams Club.

    Wonder how many have done this?

  14. Hi Jamie. A question that you may have answered before; Do I read Gemini 3rd decant, my Sun sign or Cancer 3rd Decant, my Ascendant (Cancer 21.45 degrees)? Or both?
    Thank you and I’d like to wish you a happy and healthy New Year

  15. Happy New Year Jamie. Are you well now or at least better??? Hope you have a good year in 2019.xx

  16. Hi Jamie ! Happy New Year 🙂 I do have a burning question that i hope you can help me with. I am eligible to apply to retire with a package (TEI). The application must be in by February 28th, 2019. It is risky, because i need to ensure that i’m not approved too early. My DOB is March 8, 1960 (GMT minus 5 hours). I’m hoping to accept the package and leave December 13, 2019. Can you tell me if you see anything? Or, what do the planets have to say. Thanks Jamie !!

    • birth time is 10:13 a.m. GMT minus 5 hours. Any help/direction you can provide would be greatly appreciated 🙂

  17. Hi Jamie , I finally inadvertanly discovered your chart.Venus / mercury , Jupiter / Pluto , moon wide, Sun / Uranus.That sounds like ‘ optimism to me.Just thought I’d leave u this message. ; I also had the 1st of 3 divorces at my 1st saturn return.Pluto was transiting my moon / saturn /Scorpio. I also gained custody of my son. Just to lend some sympathy here.It’s not always the ‘ dad’s fault.I know My son was a baby , and someone had to speak for him. If we were bad fathers the courts wouldn’t have awarded us custody.Mine came at a time when it was nearly unheard of , but I had to do it.for my son’s well being. I don’t like to go in detail about it , because I don’t want to bad rap my x.
    She’s improved over time and my son still visits her , but now he’s a big guy and he can take care of himself.He loves his mother and I wouldn’t try to deny him that natural bond.

  18. Hi Jamie Just wanted to mention that I love the research you’ve done on the asteroids.I’ve only started studying fixed stars and asteroids recently.
    I can see that they really fill in some blanks and adds to xtra validation of Astrology ! This is the most ‘serious’ research site I’ve found so far for my particular astrological interests.Have a good day !

  19. I discovered a glyph on an old chart that looked like a double Jupiter.I couldn’t find the glyph on the internet , so I e mailed the astrologer that did my chart.
    I was told that it is a trans neptunian ‘ hypothetical ‘ called Apollon.Have you ever heard of it Jamie ? I have it at 22 Virgo conjunct my natal mercury at 19 Virgo.if you haven’t you should look it up .its interesting.I just noticed my mars is on your P.O.F.in Capricorn and it falls in my 9th.you also have mercury and Venus conjunct Spica / Arcturus.I have Venus there also at 25 degrees plus Neptune , 24 , Ceres 27 , moon 2. Scorpio.Thought that was cool ! Have a good day and the best of luck with your health !♍

  20. Thank you so much for all the work you do. You’ve helped me learn so much and be able to give more thorough, accurate readings—as well as reflections on my own placements. I hope you’re doing well!

    • Thank you kindly Nagem. Yes, I am doing well but so busy I don’t have so much time to answer as many comments as I would like.

  21. Horoscope for Capricorn week 12 August is not updated. Rest of the astro signs have been updated.

  22. Horoscope for Capricorn week 12 August is not post correctly ( August 5 for twice)

  23. Hi Jamie!

    Love your site.
    Is this mcorrect however?:
    Sept 26, 07:51 pm – Mercury square Saturn

    From the sept horoscope.

  24. Hello,
    I just started using this website and went back to the past few yearly reviews and OMG! can’t believe how accurate they were. Amazing work!
    I am a Capricorn born on Jan 5th and was wondering if you will be posting a more detailed link for the July 5th 2020 lunar eclipse in Cap later on? it’s exactly 6 months from my birthday does that generally have any effect?
    Hope you are doing well 🙂

  25. I can see my attraction to AKing. In my chart, Mars conjunct Jamie’s Sun, Pluto on the Ascendent, many aspects to Uranus, and Moon in Aquarius, Sun in Gemini also ruled by Mercury, his Moon conjunct my Saturn, his Saturn conjunct my Mercury. Curiously, I found and like DarkStar also… 1968 Year of the Monkey, opposed to my Tiger. Similarity and conflict. Good luck, Jamie.

      • How do you feel about this: conjunctions solve oppositions. Thinking of the coming Saturn/Pluto event. Everyone is assuming a disaster. Perhaps it is a solution. 1770’s. Recently Saturn/Pluto conjunctions began economic growth periods.

  26. Asc 18Cap53, Pluto transit,

    one cant diminish the enlightening effect you and your site has upon the reader, Jamie. There is an Ambition here that takes you to the top. The danger with a Cap is they may become isolated as the mountain peaks, by nature, with no where to go but down, the realm of the SeaGoat. As such this is where I dwell. My solar progressions and arc in Pisces. Uranus and Chiron astromap aspects strong on the North American west coast where I reside.

  27. Hello Jamie Impossible to get to the leo monthly for November. It says that the link is not redirected properly. If you can look at it, thank you so much

  28. HI!
    I’m curious, are all Weekly Horoscope Tarot Cards read upright?

  29. Hi Jamie,

    you did my readying few years ago. I was wondering about love and relationship in general. I am January 10, 1985 . 6:00 am from Palestine and I live in US.


  30. Hi Jamie,

    Do you recommend reading your horoscope based on one’s sun sign or the rising sign (ascendant)


    • Hi Tina. I write them for Sun Signs but you can read them for rising signs if you want. In that case they will apply more to your close one-to-one relationships.

  31. Your photo is the yellow of the egg – as we say in Germany. Leaving the red stuff on the left side and let it dry out, You are a door opener on the right side.

  32. I read using my rising sign because that puts the transiting planets in the proper houses. I find that is much more accurate. Horoscopes do not use Time of birth and so they are much more general.

  33. I appreciate your insights and regularly view my horoscope on your site. Question tho. My bday is July 16 and for 2019 that date was included in the Pluto Opposite your Decan influence as feeling this transient the most in 2019. Come your 2020 prediction and that same transient now has the July 16th date feeling it most strongly in 2020. So which is it? or will this transient be plaguing me for 2 full years? I also noticed overlapping dates for the “all year” transients for Sag Decon II and Pices Decon I. why are these dates overlapping too?

  34. I love using this website as a reference point, as someone who is currently learning in the earlier stages of Astrology. I was curious if you had a few books you would recommend as study guides, and have used as reference points for your method of creating the aspects section.
    Many thanks!

  35. Hi Jaime,

    Your Decan horoscopes are truly the most accurate I’ve seen on the web. Question : how much money would you charge to teach me basic astrology? I just want to understand natal charts and the reasoning behind the study of astrology. I expect to develop my own take on it.

    • Thank you Anita! Maybe one day I will have time to design a study course but for now, probably the best way to learn is to order a natal reading or follow the links to the examples on the Readings Page.

  36. Wow! So many hideous fixed stars in my chart! What does it mean? Does a Jupiter conjunction to a malefic fixed star negate the planet’s usual beneficence?

    • We all have some Anita. That is why I have enabled comments on the fixed star pages, and I am continually adding famous people to the specific planet combinations. The interpretations I have included are often from the early 1900’s and do sound over the top. Take Algol for example. Donald Trump has this star on his Midheaven and look how his career has turned out. Nothing is black or white.

  37. Jamie,

    I have come to rely on your forecasts. I respect your work.

    It is obvious you spell check your work. What is also obvious is that you do not proofread your work.

    You deal in dense concepts and when you have rewritten a passage and still display remnants of the original sentence it is difficult to understand your final thought as expressed in the completed sentence.

    It makes no sense to put so much effort into your valuable work and not be able to relay those thoughts accurately to your loyal readers.

    Of which I am one.

    • Jamie’s South lunar node, natal 10Ari00

      At his age now, that’s where you want to be. Until the nodal axis intercepts this point, at age 57/58, then he can go back to being the perfectionist, 10Lib00.

      So the Lunar node at 10Ari is called the Way of the Child. Ask him about hanging out with his kids; as the sweetness of their vocalizations are challenged by scholastic composition.

  38. Good morning, Jamie: I have been visiting your site for years, actually, but only a few minutes ago did I learn of your natal chart ? Thanks for sharing your natal with us. You were born with a Jupiter Pluto conjunction and, next week, Jupiter conjoins Pluto. Sounds like a pivotal time for you ! Also, I wasn’t aware that you are Australian. Ive noticed that you don’t comment on my recent posts (or any posts). May I ask why ? It is because you disagree with the posts or you are too busy to respond. I would like to email you, if you don’t mind. can you please send me your email address. many thanks. R.J. Smith, President/Manager, Westbank Community Radio Society, West Kelowna, BC Canada. generalmanager@wdcr.ca

    • Hi R.J. There are so many comments I just cannot keep up. So busy writing weekly and monthly and yearly horoscopes as well as other posts, plus I get a lot of reading orders which have to take priority. Then there are 5 kids who are home every day now school is closed. Busy boy! funkastrology@gmail.com

      • yeah, I get that, Jamie. LOL Good for you and, no worries. After all ? T. Jupiter = Pluto in Capricorn sq. n. ME/VE in Libra, and sq. n. Saturn in Aries (chart ruler),

        The “cardinality” of that t-square, also built on the angles, must be intense !

        Also, your career success and your relationship success are intertwined, isn’t it true ? (Mercury=Venus in Libra, in 10th house of career, opposite Saturn). You need help at home ! Something has to change within the home ?

        and T. Neptune in Pisces opp. your SU/MO midpoint !

        How’s THAT for fun ! LOL

        By the way, I do like the idea of a foreign wife or partner for you, (Moon, ruler of 7, in 9th house, in Virgo = Jupiter in Virgo), Also, SU/MO = Jupiter, a foreign worker (Virgo)/nanny/slash partner/wife ? However, t. Neptune does oppose SU/MO midpoint but also opposes Jupiter (culmination). It’s complicated !

        Get everything in writing and, if it gets too busy, then slow it down ?

        Take care of your health

        I will pm you tonight.

        all the best.


  39. I was wondering why I’ve found no correlation between my life events and my natal chart with the current methods, I need to try your system, because I was starting to think I didn’t exist.

  40. hi Jamie
    I have Neptune in 10th house conjuct MC. what job should I apply for and or course should i study please? thank you alek$

  41. Hi Jamie, I’m a big fan here in Toronto Canada. As a Third Decan Cappy, it looks like you missed the reading for the end of May. The other 2 decans go into June. Is this something you were aware of; if yes, can you say when I can come back to read the rest of the month? Thank you!!

    • Hi Sarah. There are just no shorter-term transits for your decan in the second half of May. Some months you get too much and other not enough 🙂
