Happy Birthday George Clooney!
By Kelli Fox, The Astrologer
Taurean George Clooney has come a long way since his role in “Return of the Killer Tomatoes.” With a string of Hollywood hits under his belt, his two time “Sexiest Man Alive” title by People Magazine and a three time mention of Time magazine’s 100 Most Influential People in the World, it seems, this Bull has it all!
Taurus is a sign known for surrounding themselves in luxury and creature comforts. He has a home in Los Angeles which is over seven thousand square feet, and a villa in Lake Como, Italy. Taurus is also a very loyal sign and it is well known that many of his friendships with other celebrities have been long term.
Individuals with the Sun conjunct or next to Mercury can be outspoken and articulate. Mr Clooney has been candid about his liberal political views as well as a strong supporter of ending the Darfur conflict in Sudan, Africa. Taurus is known for its conservative views and tastes but in this case the Sun and Mercury are forming a square to unpredictable Uranus. This makes for a rebellious, non-conformist. As these planets are in fixed signs it indicates that once his mind is made up then there’s not much that will change it. He will pursue his ideals until he’s satisfied with the outcome.
The Sun also forms an opposition to mysterious Neptune. Anyone with this influence can sometimes appear as something they are not. This is a great aspect for an actor or creative type although drugs and alcohol can be the outlet if the individual is not using the influence in a positive way. He has said he wouldn’t ever run for public office as“I’ve slept with too many women, I’ve done too many drugs, and I’ve been to too many parties.”
Love planet Venus is in Aries which seems fitting for a man who has claimed he has slept with too many women. Many with this placement have a string of relationships and finding long term satisfaction can be hard to come by. They usually wind up in relationships spontaneously and can spend their money as quickly as they earn it. A wide trine to Uranus supports the impulsive nature of Venus in Aries. With the influence of this aspect, many who have it are not afraid to try something new in the romance department. A love of the exotic will usually get the blood flowing in matters of the heart.
With Mars in Leo opposing both Jupiter and Saturn, George Clooney has used his star power to support his causes, get to the top in a very competitive field and has the capacity to focus his energy on attaining his goals.
