Anne Hathaway’s Neptune Problem

hathaway_follieriAnne Hathaway’s ex-boyfriend, Raffaello Follieri. spent his 30th birthday in jail after being convicted for 14 counts of fraud and money laundering.  Columnists are debating how much Anne actually knew about what Raffaello was up to when he represented himself as a representative of the Vatican in order to swindle billionaire Ron Burkle out of millions of dollars – perhaps astrology can tell why Anne fell for Follieri.

Anne Hathaway has appeared to live life as charmed as the princess she played in the Princess Diaries.  Raised in affluent Millburn New Jersey, she has been acting since she was thirteen and is a trained soprano as well as stage actress.  Her first break came at age 16 when she starred in a failed TV series, and she has worked steadily in major films ever since.  She is the new face of Lancome beauty products.

Anne’s astrological chart (11/12/1982, birthtime unknown) shows a quadruple conjunction of the Sun, Mercury, Venus and Jupiter.  Venus and Jupiter are the two most beneficial planets in the astrological language.  When Venus is fused with the Sun (the Self) in the birthchart, it grants beauty and the power of attraction.  Jupiter, the planet of prosperity and abundance, joins the Sun and Venus to create a powerfully positive charge in Anne’s life.  This is a trio of luck and good fortune, and nearly certain success.  People with a strong Jupiter in their charts often are confident and assured, with a strong sense of social justice and moral guidelines, and the presence of Mercury (mind and communication) there explains her strong intelligence and ability to slip in and out of roles as an actor.  Mercury can be a bit of a shapeshifter and enjoys […]

A Look at Rachel Maddow

Rachel Maddow

Rachel Maddow’s new show began on September 9, and if you’re a fan of the truth, no matter what side you’re on, you owe it to herself to check her out.

Twilight has posted a noon chart for Rachel, along with these words of wisdom:

I wonder who’ll be on the political scene in the USA around 10 years from now, say for the elections in 2016 and 2020? One name in the future’s political headlines which wouldn’t surprise me a bit would be Rachel Maddow. She’s 35 now, in ten years she’ll be just about the right age to run as a presidential candidate, or be chosen as VP, having perhaps done a stint in the House or Senate in intervening years.

Rachel’s new TV show, which has all the hallmarks of being “the one to watch” for those keen on politics, was aired for the first time last night. She has been seen fairly regularly on MSNBC all year, doing pundit duty along with Olbermann, Matthews, Buchanan and the rest, as well as presenting a regular radio show on Air America. She strikes me as the type of person for whom US politics is crying out. She oozes confidence, speaks and debates with a no nonsense clarity, clear grasp of issues, but never loses her calm, friendly approach.

What’s most notable about Rachel’s chart to me is the combination of Aries (Chiron, Sun and Venus conjunct in Aries) which is dynamic, inspirational, willful and courageous; Moon and Mercury conjunct in sensitive Pisces, which is empathic and creative but fragile; and Mars conjunct Jupiter in Aquarius – the innovator, the fighter for social justice and equality.   Pluto (power issues) opposes Venus […]

Cameron Diaz: Commitment Phobia and the Pluto Square

Cameron Diaz has reportedly told boyfriend Paul Sculfor that she’d rather be single, even though he’s moved his stuff into her Los Angeles home.  Cameron seems to shy away from romantic entanglements, and even during her long relationship with Justin Timberlake the two spent long periods of time apart and her friends reported that Cameron was unable to commit to the relationship.  She even admitted on the Ellen Degeneres show that she is commitment phobic.  So I wanted to take a look at and see what’s going on there.

Cameron Diaz

Cameron is a Virgo, and we usually think of Virgos as being shy and retiring prudes who avoid the spotlight, but this kind of two-dimensional portrait is not always true for everyone.  Cameron’s Virgo Sun is conjunct Mars (the warrior planet) which gives her that dynamic energy that she is so famous for, along with a love of adventure and tomboy tendencies.  Mars is a masculine planet and gives Cameron that tomboy personality and a need to be the one in charge – the leader in the relationship.  She will never like being confined by another.

Cameron’s Moon (showing her emotional needs) is in Taurus, the sign of stability and security, so there is a part of her that craves a life of comfort and serenity.  The Taurus moon can also be stubborn, inflexible, and easily threatened and Cameron’s Moon is squared by Mercury which reveals an inner conflict between the mind (Mercury) and the heart (Moon).  This can make it more difficult for her to make rational decisions and her heart often leads her with her head likely often following in regret.

She has […]
