I decided to publish the Paris profile here after all – she turned out to be more interesting than I thought!
Paris Hilton is widely dismissed as a dumb blonde, but her birthchart shows her with the Sun conjunct Mercury – a placement that usually denotes a powerful mind and strong intelligence. With both the Sun and Mercury in Aquarius she is creative and individualistic as well, making her own way through the world with a strong independent streak. She is not a person who would be content to live off the fruits of her family fortune, but needs to make her own way in the world. Although she is very bright, Mercury in her chart is retrograde (meaning it appeared to turn backwards at the time that she was born) which shows that communication is difficult for her and it can be difficult for her to make herself understood. Perhaps there was an early learning disability that further eroded her confidence about her mental abilities.
Aquarius is a rational and reasonable sign that is not concerned with matters of emotion but lives more in the realm of ideas, but Paris’s Sun and Mercury are in the last degrees of Aquarius and bleeding into the watery sign of Pisces. (The notion of the “cusp” is true only at the last degrees of one sign, but once a planet goes into the next sign there is no more cusp influence.) Aquarius and Pisces are both creative signs, with Aquarius being intellectually creative and Pisces creativity coming from a more divine inspiration. And the introduction of the sensitivity into Paris’s personality through the Pisces influence will help to offset the more revolutionary tendencies of her Aquarian nature.
