Actress Angelina Jolie star is rising. With three – count em – Golden Globes under her belt (including Best Actress in the title role in HBOs Gia) and an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress in Girl, Interrupted to boot, Jolie, an airy Gemini, should be flying high. The daughter of actor Jon Voight is a former model and a tattooed bad girl. She has held her own opposite the likes of Denzel Washington (in The Bone Collector) and Nicolas Cage (in Gone In Sixty Seconds), and her embodiment of Lara Croft Tomb Raider has definitely made her one to watch. Her tempestuous personal life has also garnered her lots of publicity and attention!
Lets see what the stars have to say about what makes this beauty a star …
Born under Gemini’s influence, Jolie was bound from the beginning to follow a careening path toward self-knowledge and enlightenment. Geminis have a great urge toward communication and self-expression, making acting a natural career choice; they also enjoy a constant, driving thirst for knowledge. They will not rely on the teachings of others, but instead must learn everything for themselves firsthand, regardless of the cost. Geminis may have difficulty in concentrating on one particular field or career for very long.
Jolie is a true Gemini: As a child she wanted to be a funeral director, but then began attending the prestigious Lee Strasberg Theater Institute at the tender (and precocious) age of 11. Next she went into modeling, and later entered film school at New York University. Now she is an established actress and one of Hollywood’s hottest stars. But don’t expect this leading lady to stick with acting for long – her intense desire to learn life’s lessons firsthand, coupled with her tendency to drop projects before they’re finished, will most likely lead her places even shell be surprised to go.
Gemini is an Air Sign, but Jolie is a real firebrand. This could have something to do with the heavy Fire Sign influence in her chart: Both Mars and Jupiter, her Planets of Passion and Luck, reside in Fiery Aries, making Jolie a direct, aggressive and competitive person who goes after what she wants on impulse without a backwards glance. Again, these planets position in Aries influences Jolie’s courageous, carefree enthusiasm for life, as well as her frequent inability to finish what she started. One great life’s lesson for her will be to learn to ground herself and commit to one project or undertaking – or person.
Venus, the Planet of Love, resides in Cancer in Jolies chart. For her, marriage means security. She has a tendency to cling to those she loves, whether romantically or platonically (in her Oscar acceptance speech on March 26, 2000, she tearfully proclaimed her undying love for her brother). Her marriage to British actor Jonny Lee Miller didn’t last long. Jonnys a Scorpio – thats a Water Sign – which may help explain their split. Jolie’s chart is almost completely lacking in Earth Signs; she may do best with an Earthy mate who provides her with the stability and practicality that she cant easily provide for herself.
Billy Bob Thornton wasn’t an Earth Sign – and wasn’t the lifelong mate for Jolie either. Jolies Mars in Aries makes her a doer, not a talker. She married Miller wearing black rubber pants and a tee shirt bearing his name on the back – written in her own blood. She married Thornton even though he was already engaged to someone else (actress Laura Dern). Is Jolie crazy or callous? Not necessarily – she simply feels and acts passionately. Her Moon Square Saturn, however, lends an inhibitive influence to her emotional life; as much as she wants love, as passionate as she can feel for another person, she may tend toward despondency and discouragement in her love life. She would benefit from learning to be more trusting and optimistic.
Jolie, French for pretty, is actually Angelina’s middle name. The strong Gemini influence in Angelina’s chart makes her totally unwilling to ride on her famous actor fathers Hollywood coat tails. Her Mercury is in Gemini as well, lending her an agile, perceptive mind and the ability to think logically. Her Saturn is in Cancer, which will benefit her well on her course through life: Whether she continues with acting or finds another form of self-expression, she is graced with the tenacity to continue on any course she chooses, regardless of any obstacles that may arise. She does not want anyone’s sympathy; rather, she wants to solve her own problems without anyone’s help. If she can take care that her energies do not become divided (her Jupiter in Aries frequently leads her to overextend herself), she is likely to go far and find the peace and knowledge that she seeks.
She has six children named Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shilo, Knox and Vivenne with Brad Pitt, whom she married on August 23, 2014. She was previously married to Jonny Lee Miller from 1996 to 1999 and Billy Bob Thornton from 2000 to 2003. She is also the daughter of actor Jon Voight.
