Seeing Stars

jennifer-jason-leighJennifer Jason-Leigh

Incredible actress.
I watched eXsistenZ again recently after gamergate exploded.  I love that dark little gem, and who can ever forget her scenes in Shortcuts ?  I won’t ruin it for you if you haven’t seen it (click the link) but it is NSFW and it’s Altman, so plan on 3 hours.

Jennifer was absolutely fantastic as Dorothy Parker and she doesn’t shy away from playing really intense screwed up people, see Bastard Out of Carolina, The Anniversary Party for starters.
Something made me think of her last night and I thought she probably has a very interesting chart, she is so riveting onscreen.  Was I ever right !
Jennifer has one of those natal charts that amaze, like Bruce Lee and Nostradamus.

Jennifer Jason Leigh natalWe have an incredible amount of intellectual Aquarius happening !
Soaring idealism, craving for fresh experiences, communicating extraordinary socially conscious visionary realms – all shown in her packed 9th house of philosophies.  Very passionate thinker/communicator who teaches through film.  Amazing.  Now I see how/why she nailed Dorothy Parker so brilliantly.

Venus bang on Jupiter and Mars bang on Saturn in addition to Aquarius Moon conjunct MC opposite Uranus conjunct IC is mesmerizing.  Moon at MC is in the public eye for work, Uranus at culmination degree of Leo at IC leads a private life, but for the screen she will rise brilliantly to the occasion.  Conjunctions are power operating, and Venus on Jupiter is sexy, but eccentric in Aquarius – the intellectual needs fed first.  Mars on Saturn (with the former conjunction in mind) is the macho femme fatale – the tough girl, smart and sassy, works hard/plays hard.

Gemini rising with Mercury (ruler) combust Sun in that powerful stellium with Moon elevated is tricky – at once flirty and nimble but also very strong-willed, focused in purpose and aspirations.  Leo North Node opposite Venus/Jupiter delivers immediate awareness of the art form, a hold-over from the past, an innate knowing boosted by a plethora of Aquarius.  Aquarian motto: I know.

She seems drawn to uncovering the raw humanity inside us all, urging us to see what we don’t want to see.  We have to look at it, know it, in order to change it.  This is a product of Chiron, the wounded healer, elevated in Pisces 10.  Using the work to heal.

Not a bit surprised by bitch goddess Lilith conjunct Pluto, either.  Lilith, she who would not be tamed or an any way subservient to man or god.  She is of course sextile Neptune (aka film) which is in hard aspect to Jennifer’s entire Aquarius stellium by transference of light.  Here lies the friction which has driven her success.  Scorpios and Aquarians are amazingly resilient for fixed signs.
