UPDATE on the Jolie-Pitt Twins (born July 12, 2008 6:27 pm Nice, France) from astrologer Lynn Hayes who gives a wonderful write-up on the sweet little babies’ natal charts here:
~My original post begins here:
Angelina Jolie, June 4, 1975, 9:09 am PDT (Rodden rating: AA for accurate), Los Angeles, CA.
Born during a Saturn Hour, Angelina Jolie possesses a ‘Watery’ Saturn in a Watery house, the 12th house, along with Venus 28Can09 rising.
Known for her difficult relationship with her father, actor Jon Voight, her 12th house Saturn is in emotionally protective Cancer, sign of family and home, so we know that a father complex has made relating to authority an uneasy task for this Hollywood darling.
Thankfully, these daddy issues seem to have been successfully dealt with even though her separating Sun/Neptune opposition has made understanding daddy quite difficult along with the aspect’s defiant attitude.
With rebellious Uranus squaring Venus and Ascendant (ASC = a point describing the mask or persona which which we face the world), there is an underlying eccentricity concerning relationships–Ms. Jolie is attracted to unusual people and has a fear of ‘belonging’ to anyone. Venus SQ Uranus is the aspect of the “free spirit” who tends to flaunt her convention-defying relationships. And despite the past dismay of Hollywood’s power structure, this openess has worked fine for her career so far!
Well, what can be said of this beautiful actress?
Jolie (“pretty”) IS Venus-Aphrodite, the glamorous woman, and none would deny her the credit for her charming goddess-esque form. Yet there is more to her than the obvious Venus conj ASC implies for Venus/ASC conjunctions give more than charm and the approval of others. They may also indicate one who is fond of life’s finer things and an innate ability to exploit one’s best qualities.
Plus, Venus/ASC is prone to aggression when what is desired is not forthcoming–she provokes people into taking advantage of her then becomes annoyed at their presumption, and all is brought to a stop until she gets her way. There is a ‘conniver’ underneath a Venus/ASC conj, one who weighs the advantages and disadvantages of each alliance for its benefits to her…self-involved is Venus/ASC.
And sexy Sappho is at IC, which is perhaps an inheritance from a glamorous mother (4th house.)
Then there’s Jolie’s Moon/Mars conj: impatient, jealous, and extremely sensitive to others’ opinions–it’s the “sore loser” aspect. Slights might be only imaginary, but retaliation may still follow as people are “put in their place”–this aspect tends to cloud reasoning ability when overheated, but usually only when feeling threatened. Tisiphone, an asteroid whose keyword is ‘retaliation’ is rising with Venus, which underscores a vengeful nature when opposed or feeling put upon.
A hidden imperfection? Oh surely not! Then perhaps she’s only human after all…
Click chart to read my listing of Elements and Modes–you’ll see that there are no Fixed planets and no Earth in her natal chart.
Lack of Earth: realism lacking–grounding must come from other factors but her Watery Saturn in 12th (father) has not given this to her…Saturn is, however, Direct, which has probably helped Mr. Voight in his quest for a relationship with his daughter after their earlier problems. Good eating habits, plenty of sleep, and daily exercise are musts for Ms. Jolie’s lack of Earth.
Lack of Fixed energy: difficult to follow through on what’s begun–sticking with an exercise program helps develop commitment and willpower; sales or promo work are talents.
Abundant Fire: spontaneous, overactive, and restless; self-restraint must be learned for efficiency’s sake; wild behavior, exaggeration, and ego exaltation is usual with a creative, Fiery nature.
Abundant Cardinal energy: impatient; driven toward worldly experiences and doesn’t like anyone getting in the way; Saturn’s lessons come from all areas of life and they must be closely examined in order not to repeat mistakes (Billy Bob?); head to head competition is beneficial (Lara Croft!)
Yet papa Voight (no angel–who is?) must have been stung more than once by his daughter’s emotional touchiness and moodiness (Moon/Mars = temper tantrums), her rule-breaker leanings (Sun semi-sq Uranus), and the Sun/Neptune opposition which indicates difficulty in telling who’s right and who’s wrong in arguments.
Angie was misunderstood as a child, by her father (and perhaps by mother, too) and the insecurity the Sun/Neptune aspect engenders gives a suspicious nature about other people’s motives…not so good for love relationships. Yet maturity and self-knowledge are the antidotes for this confusion about the personal ego (Sun, a father significator) which then leads to adult relationships where one tends to bring out either the best–or the worst–in the partner.
This best/worst tendency is shown between her natal chart and that of Brad Pitt with their NN-SN ‘flip’…his Gem North Node conjoins her South Node 00Gem53…which is another way of saying that they bring out either the best in each other, or the worst. So far, it seems to be ‘the best’ for them both.
Plus, Pitt’s natal DESC, cusp of the Partnership house, is conjunct Jolie’s natal Sun 13Gem25!
The third primary link between their natal charts: his Cap Mars opposes her Cancerian Venus/ASC. As Paris Hilton once said, ‘that’s hot.’
As you see, Jolie’s Arian Jupiter is closely conj natal Midheaven, the Aspiration/Career Point, which gives her a desire for Jupiterian things such as money, spiritual growth, ideals, travel, and expansion of many kinds. Social work and child foster/adoptive care are also shown in her chart (Moon/Jup), so having jolly Jupiter at MC helps her tremendously in fulfilling her worldly desires including having many (Jupiter) children (Moon.)
Yes, Jupiter at Career Point indicates the Acting Profession and mega-bucks for performing.
The Mars/Chiron midpoint is at MC as well–Mars/Chiron is the ‘sacred warrior’ archetype which I could not help but remember recently as I re-watched her as Lara Croft in ‘Tomb Raider.’
The film’s adventurous fight scenes and its plotline involving the Illuminati and treasure-seeking, along with the physical training necessary for such acting chops by its lady star, reminded me of her natal chart to a “T” for there is a need here (abundant Cardinal and Fire, lack of Fixed planets) for a dedicated physical program. Martial Arts training is perfect! And hand-to-hand competition is good for the nervous irritability so usual with a Venus/Uranus square.
Sun and Moon are in a lovely sextile (60 degr) which softens the previously mentioned Moon/Mars disturbances, and helps her with the difficult Moon/Saturn square, an aspect of melancholy and gloom.
Moon/Saturn in difficult aspect makes letting go of the past difficult, but a Sun/Moon sextile indicates eventual success at this necessary task if one wants to move into the future without heavy emotional baggage. Another aid for her is her Moon/Jupiter conjunction, good for long-distance travel (and in 9th house!), social work such as being spokeperson for large organizations, spiritual insights, and an intellectual understanding of other people.
Moon/Jupiter conjs indicate one who wants to contribute to society and to give asylum to those who are in need of it. This is the “faith that can move mountains” aspect (shared natally by mountain-mover and terminal optimist, George Bush, in Libra.)
With Moon as chart-ruler and lady Venus rising, it’s no surprise that Angelina Jolie embodies the Aphrodite archetype for many people as her image is projected upon large silver screens the world over. And her dramatic Moon trine Neptune makes the stereotype even more potent for Neptune IS the silver screen–and one of the Moon’s archetypal goddesses is Isis. In fact, Lara Croft’s exploits inside the polar ICE cap was fulfilled beautifully by this lovely Hollywood “Isis.”
But ‘Mother’ is there, too, in her child adoptions and humanitarian social work; and as you see, I’ve marked the Aries Point (fame; prominence) because of natal Pallas, the Daughter, 00Ari28. So Jolie is famous in her own right, she’s famous for adopting children, and may eventually have a famous daughter.
In fact, her Sun/Moon (male/female = relationships, esp marriage) midpoint is conj natal Ceres, the Mother. This is a blessing for her, because Moon/Saturn’s melancholia may be greatly eased or mitigated by the joys of motherhood and the frivolities of raising happy children. She’s a good teacher to her kids, esp in their creative pursuits.
So there we have it: a starry portrait of a glamorous woman who lives out the Venusian archetype for the Collective–and is expert at doing so, isn’t she?
Perhaps we should include her Sun Gem/Moon Aries personality blend’s Iamges for Integration–which may remind us again of her Lara Croft role…
Sun Gem/Moon Aries: “A nimble-footed streetfighter dodges (her) way to victory over all comers…The eternal freshness of a Constable landscape.” (Chas & Suzi Harvey, ‘Sun Sign-Moon Sign.’)
Well, that’s all I have time for at the moment concerning this paragon of feminine goddesslike beauty–and I now officially dub her “CelebChart Queen”…until the next CelebChart usurper comes along and the Queen’s sceptor must be passed!
Coming here just now I saw a headline that the Atlantis crew is short on space experience. Well…how encouraging.
Especially after writing my semi-grumpy post on today’s Atlantis launch, Cape Canaveral, FL, 2:45 pm est.

It’s not that I try to be a grumpy grumpiola–it simply comes naturally, and we should all be glad when feisty Mars is finished his out-of-bounds stint. It’s been a doozy.
