Is Kevin Federline, Britney Spears' ex-husband, a Savior or a Scoundrel?

Let’s take a closer look…

Kevin Federline was born March 21, 1978 at 6:56 pm in Fresno, California.

Kevin Federline would not be in this column had he not married ex- Mouseketeer and superstar singer, Britney Spears, who has always been the Fort Knox for this couple. They married on September 14, 2004 and divorced on August 30, 2007. At the time of the marriage she was rich and famous beyond words and he was a Pizza delivery boy. They have two children, now in his custody.

Kevin has Libra Rising or Ascending with Pluto in Libra on the Ascendant. That’s not where Libra should be if there is any chance in hell the marriage would work. That’s Strike 1. His Sun sign is Aries—‘it’s all about me’; ‘I’m in this deal for all I can get.’ The ruler of the chart is Venus, found in the fiery sign of selfish and self-centered Aries in his 7th House of Marriage, conjunct Mercury—both squared by Mars in Cancer. Strike 2. I am smelling scoundrel big time. Mars in Cancer is someone who is more interested in sex in the city than love, home and a houseful of babies. He has the Moon in Virgo—he may point the finger at Britney for being the alcoholic and drug addict, but Kevin is definitely an addict as well. Strike 3.

Never one to hide how I am feeling about anything or anybody, I saw red when Kevin Federline was awarded a lot of money by the Courts from Britney when they divorced and when he was awarded both children when her meltdown hit 0. Give me a break. This man is no more interested in raising those boys until they go off to college in sixteen or seventeen years than I am. And the media, print and broadcast, has vilified her—who likes to see the same train wreck with the same anybody day after day—but that does not make Mr. Federline a paragon of virtue as a human being, much less a father. He is a boozer, user, taker, a skank and a gold digger. Boy, does Britney ever wish someone else, like richer than Croesus, had delivered that pizza the night she met him. What was she thinking? Let’s look at her chart and you’ll see why she acts doesn’t think about anything.

Britney Spears was born on December 2, 1981 at 1:30 am in Mahon, Mississippi.

Let’s take a closer look…

Britney has Libra Rising, or Ascending, just like Kevin, with Venus her ruler in Capricorn—man this is an emotionally distant young woman. Venus in Capricorn is the cold and ruthless hard-hearted Hannah from Dumb Ville. However, her Mars in Virgo trines her Venus, so she will one day find the right partner for her.

Here is where the lunacy is in her natal chart. She has Uranus (sudden impetuousness), Mercury (how one thinks and acts), Sun (identity) and Neptune (drugs and alcohol) in the ‘I can do anything I want when I want to, and nobody can stop me. I am a law unto myself’ Sagittarius, which is the sign I call “free range chicken, plucking and clucking any old place she wants.” Does that sound like Britney, especially impetuous? Damn tooting it does. Remember when she was married for 55 hours and that liaison was annulled? 

It is Mars in Aquarius in good aspect to her Sagittarian planets that adds fuel to the fire of her being more than a bit cuckoo. This placement adds to her innate sense of entitlement—I am famous and I am rich and I can cut off my hair, drink myself into a stupor, get in the car drugged and nuttier than a fruitcake and get arrested—anything and everything she wants to do she’s been doing.

It sounds as if they deserve one another; not! It may surprise those of you still reading that Britney will make a comeback and will be bigger than ever. It is in our cultural DNA for the bad girls like Judy Garland and her daughter, Liza with a “Z”, Whitney Houston, and others to hit rock bottom and get back to ermine and satin sheets. Billie Holliday had her ups and downs and finally stayed down. Britney will come back when she has her Saturn return between 28 and 30-years of age. She just turned 26! (Can you believe two marriages, two kids, lots of crack-ups and a pizza delivery man raising her kids with her money? As they say, ‘Only in Hollyweird.’)

To finish with Kevin Federline, it is reported that his groomsmen wore track suits at their wedding with “Pimp” stenciled on the back—pure trailer trash  and a calling card that he still carries with pride to this day. I find it reprehensible that the press reports her every move and vilifies her and makes no mention of the useless –ex living off her money and raising her kids when he is as incapable of  it as, well, as I am. Her shenanigans shows she at present is no fit mother, the judge saw to that, but Kevin ain't either! It makes me madder than Bill Clinton when he gets heckled at a rally for Hillary for him to be living like a fat cat off her money. Is This is Your Life still on the boob tube? No? Can we bring it back and have a five minute rendition: This is Your Sorry Life, Kevin Federline?

Is my time up? Do you know how I feel? I have the astrology charts to prove it. Britney, call me.

Counselor, astro-intuitive, author, lecturer, spiritual life coach and founding director of the Sedona Intensive, Albert Clayton Gaulden has influenced countless individuals from all walks of life-actors, athletes, financial specialists, teachers, families, psychologists and psychiatrists-from all corners of the earth-helping them to retrieve their authentic selves and to tap into the inner core of their power. Albert’s unique gift in the field of Transpersonal Psychology is responsible for his fearlessness when confronting the client’s inner conflicts. In his recent book You’re Not Who You Think You Are, Gaulden writes “Men and women are the same; each of us needs to get in touch with our invisible partner, or shadow in order to be emotionally healthy and happy.”  For more information on the Sedona Intensive go to

He is AUTHOR OF Clearing for the Millennium, �Signs and Wonders-Understanding the language of God and You're Not Who You Think You Are-A Breakthrough Guide to Discover your Authentic Self will be published by Atria Books, a division of Simon & Schuster in December of this year.

A member of the National Association of Transpersonal Psychology and the American Federation of Astrologers, Gaulden founded the Sedona Intensive, a personal growth and empowerment program, to help clients retrieve their authentic selves and tap into their inner power.

Gaulden coined the term astroanalysis-a combination of Jungian psychology and astrology-to describe how he helps free clients from compulsions, addictions, and unresolved issues, which keep them from living a life of peace and joy.

Albert saw things others didn't and heard what they couldn't from the age of two. When he was five he asked his mother why she seemed more like his dad and his dad more like the mother. As a pre-schooler he was tuned into the rich world of intuition and past lives even though he had no one to shepherd him through these recollections and recalls. At Birmingham-Southern he click connected with the unique psychological work and world of Swiss psychoanalyst, Dr. Carl Jung and his take on the shadow self. Gaulden believes that all-seeing and all-knowing is born within a child and it is the false and mundane world that erases his memory of what is really true. The integration of the divided self, putting one back together through a conscious fusion with his or her shadow is the underpinning of his work in the Sedona Intensive.

Albert studied with renowned astrology Byrd Knapp, Darrell Harris and Katharine de Jersey, as well as took Awareness Classes with Lee Jones at the Spiritualist Church in Los Angeles in the 70's, and attended the Corrado Academy of Perception in 1978 which led to his meeting actor John Travolta using the tools of manifestation learned at the Academy, and selling John El Adobe de Tajiguas, a 35-acre estate that abutted Ronald Reagan's ranch near Gaviota Beach in Southern California.

Gaulden worked in 1986 with international-best selling author of The Celestine Prophecy, James Redfield in Albert's innovative and one-of-a-kind personal empowerment program, the Sedona Intensive, which he founded in 1982. Albert was hired to use his gifts as an astro-intuitive to help cast Redfield's movie of The Celestine Prophecy.

Gaulden travels the world to teach and speak and finds Egypt particularly one of the most intriguing countries in the world. In December he will be returning with a tour group of clients and friends to the Land of the Nile and Pharaohs and the Great Pyramid of Cheops, the Sphinx and other ancient digs and monuments in Upper and Lower Egypt.

His clients include sports figures, actors, royalty, Wall Street executives, men and women and young people from all walks of life who are eager to face those defects of character that keep them from being who they really are. He rigorously maintains the anonymity of his clients.

Additionally, Gaulden is a motivational speaker on such popular themes as "Mr. Right is Usually Mr. Wrong-Falling in Love With Make-Believe", "Take Your Power Back", "The Power of a Great Idea", the Death of Terror and the Rebirth of Bliss, �"Why Relationships Don't Work but How They Can" and many other provocative topics.
